thanks!
keep it up yourself too!!
cool floaty wings and use of grey instead of black. It would have looked nice with some strong black for the shading of the clothes I think.

Day 16: not particularly my best, but equally not my worst. First thing in the morning isn't great for speed I'm thinking as I'm sometimes still half asleep and just can't get that next level focus.

Love the black hair on that one. Reminds me of One Piece for some reason. nice sharp lines!!

Day 17: super conflicted about this one, the top half came out really nicely, but the boots and trousers weren't great. The quality didn't quite justify the time spent.

Also: tried a "soft" render when I finished it. I saw another artist do it and remembered trying it out ages ago but now it's worth another shot.
Let me know what you think!

Second one is the soft render right? What does that mean anyway? Anyhow I definitely like it. Brings out the shading in a nice way. I actually like the boots haha. Always loved the way they look IRL.

Day 10 I'm starting to think I should use the opportunity to redraw stuff from my earlier regimens, just to always have something I can work from and to reduce the mental load. Heck, I could even translate storyboards I have on paper into sketch pages for later inking, for some potential sweet manga productivity *stealing ideas intensifies*

Mwahahahahaha



I honestly think this thread is the solution to all my productivity issues. I'm going to Writing Survival to start a streak there too and see if I'm correct. Plugging the iterative aspect into these things could save me quite a bit, and put one more nail into Inspirations' coffin.

Yes, the right is the soft render. It's simply a copy of the lineart/sketch that's blurred and put on top. As the name implies, it softens everything an absolute ton.

Nice fancy jail costume :P
And yes taking the opportunity to do redraw is a great idea, then not only do your old ideas now have purpose but your new ideas require less effort to generate. win-win.

Day 18: I've been talking way too much lately so trying to cut that down as well. for me my long posts work like talking out loud, so it's good for working out things, but at the moment I've done enough thinking for now, it's time to do more drawing :P
kept the time down which was nice. overall quality wasn't great. I'm too tired to do this first thing in the mornings really :/

I hear you on that front haha. You don't need to reply to my posts. I'll just be leaving thoughts where I can. This sort of thing works the less energy we expend.

I hear you on the morning thing. Jeez I failed to go to bed early again. I'm in the groove now but I really need to make sure I get enough sleep.

ps love her belt

No I'll probably still reply, but just write less and not check as frequently for new replies. I don't want to ghost the forum I did that for a whole year once XD
Unless you get an early night, an early morning won't go well :P
Nice dynamic piece. Pose and clothes are cool.

Day 19: did a 5 minute gesture warmup first. made a huge difference to my speed and general brain power. a good nights sleep might also have contributed.
came out ok.

Kawaii desu neee.

Wait I feel like I missed the moment you practiced clothing. How long did it take for you to get where you are?

I haven't really practiced that much, so it's sort of just guessing and a couple of habits like the generic folds that I put on everything that's got me this far.
As to how long it took to get this far, as you understand time is a real mess when it comes to seeing skill improve, as it's always gradual. Looking back my sketches seemed to get better clothing around 2017, and they haven't really improved since haha.
There's a difference I think between "not being wrong", and "being right". In other words it looks alright but there's nothing technically accurate about it.
There's always huge similarities in folds that are in similar areas, i.e. breasts, groin, armpits, ankles, knees, waist etc. I just draw "generic" folds by habit. I want to get way better.

That's a quote for the ages

And I can tell. Looking forward to how things will turn out for sure

nice headphones

Day 20:
drew in an absolute blind rage for some reason.
and now I'm angry at how well it came out. (seriously tho I think not focusing on the sketch while doing it led to leaning out of my standard range)
decent time taken.
quality dropped a little but maintained overall quality. as it's a sketch it can suffer a little line degradation.
I'm doing several thumbnails first to try and lean out of my normal pose range and make a more varied interesting piece.



EDIT:
I raged so hard I made a lineart. check out the crazy lace.
