ToxicWaste's Art
« on: June 11, 2016, 04:05:27 PM »
So, I know that this art sucks, but I am also really harsh on my art, so maybe it's not as bad as I think. Tell me what you guys think of it.

Note: I am aware that the hand is literally just a ball on this one. I hate it too, but I cannot draw hands or feet to save my life.

Well you've got a good start going and your lines are pretty clean and precise, so that's good. I'd keep working on the basics of anatomy if I were you. And don't worry, hands are the hardest things to draw. It just takes practice.

haha yeah hands are a real pain to draw, you will get the hang on it if you keep practicing, but also looking at real life to learn what things need to look like :P

while your drawings are quite simple they are nicely balanced in terms of detail and design.

the face on the first one is really good :P

do you ever colour your artworks?
i think that would add some more life into them!

but good work so far, and i cnt wait to see more!

nice to see some colour, a lot of artists avoid it (like myself a lot of the time!):P
and good initial use of shade for the inside of the sleeve, it would be nice to see some more shading across the whole character, what program did you use to colour?

I use Photoshop Elements 9 for all my digital art. It's what came with my drawing tablet, so it's what I use...

I also have a hard time determining how to shade the character, mostly because I've never really tried it before. I suppose I could try shading, but I can't guarantee it'll look better or worse.

well if you could guarantee it would look better, i would dare day you would have done it :P
but not to worry , we are here to help :P
the advantage of photoshop is you can work with layers, so make an additional layer for shade, layer mode set to "Multiply" then paint with a light grey and it will darken the main colours of your character that are on the other layer(s)

as a basic starter for shade, im aging the light coming from one side of the page, just above character head height. then shade the 1/3 of the characters arms and legs that are away from the light. like so:

Spoiler

hope that helps a bit to get you started. if you add more detail, such as folds in the clothes, you can also shade them as well!

Thanks for the advice! I could never really tell how the shading was supposed to work, but I think that your example may have put me on the right track. Let me try it out with one of the characters I have above, and we'll see if I got it right.

Hopefully I got this right. This is my version of suupertramp's example.

Spoiler


I didn't use pink to shade the skin, I just colored over it in a new layer with a darker version of the color I was using. Not sure if I think that this is better, but it's what I ended up doing anyway.

Color/shaded versions of the first three pictures will be uploaded when I finish.

Edit!

Spoiler




I honestly think that these versions are much better now that I have them colored and shaded.

Another picture for the gallery...

This character is actually one of the first characters I've ever come up with, with only my avatar being older. Maybe I'll get around to drawing him too. Time will tell...

well done! although simple, the shade adds depth to the character, so well done!

it depends on your style, shade affects colours a whole lot of different ways depending on lighting type, texture of object, and colours nearby etc. if you have a favorite artist, have a look at what colours they use. for the time being, you can just darken the areas that are shaded, and add more depth/realism when you feel confident.

dont be afraid to try out something and it not work, getting skilled usually means making lots of mistakes on the way :P

Decided to draw my avatar. He's a character from a comic I made in junior high and for my senior project in high school.

nice one.
i assume the pointy fingers are deliberate for that character, otherwise yeah dont make them so pointy :P
thats a nice facial expression, and nice shading overall :P
nice logo, haha,  but it would be nice to see a little more detail on the clothes, other than folds, you can add stuff like pockets or seams around the neck and cuffs. and laces etc on the shoes. you can start as simple as you like and add as much detail as is comfortable :P
