Austa's Sketches (Would love thoughts and feedback)
« on: July 20, 2013, 09:40:51 PM »
I suppose I should put myself out there a little bit more with my cruddy work. Who knows? I might get a good tip or two about how to improve. Or better yet, I'll get better acquainted with you guys and make a friend. (I am lonely. <.<)

 Some of my more recent stuff-




Cat girls ftw.



Something I put together...not sure if I like it:

Nice art! Do you use digital and traditional?
Expression catch me in that first pic, especially the larger girl ( is that a girl? )
Different look on the cat girl, nice pose too (ack I need to draw more now) though I always wonder how- HOW- does the tail work? Is there a tail hole in the pants espescially designed for them?
3rd Pic- Hm, yeah the arms are too short. Should be twice as long. Have you ever tried basing poses off yourself, like looking into a mirror to examine the anatomical proportions?
No one is perfect . . . that's why there's erasers and extra paper.

I do mainly digital, but traditional all the time while I'm working as well. And yes, the top one is a girl. She's a tomboy design I did for a scifi game idea I had. It didn't pan out.
I have no clue how those kitties do it. But she is actually not really a neko, but an older character who dresses like one as an assassin in my current comic.
THE ARMS!!! How could I have missed those arms? Honestly, I was freeballing it so hard, it's no wonder I overlooked something like that. O.O And nah, I never use myself as a model. (Weight issues.)

Cool, do you use a tablet? And Tomboy indeed! almost couldn't tell if it was a boy, er, girl.XD
A... neko assassin? Ah, I like her design btw.
Okay, well, do you use references sometimes?

Yep, I use a Bamboo tablet. And oh gosh, looks like I need to work on making her more apparent as a girl. XD
Yup, a neko assassin. Aren't those fun?
I use lots of photo refs and internet pose refs. Sometimes, I just get inspired and try something, as evidenced by the last sketch.

For tomboy, ah, girl, hehe, it was her face that nearly threw me off. I determined her gender with her body figure. Think maybe work is needed on eyes. Even in different styles boy and girl faces differ.
Neko Assassin concept is brand new to me, but it sounds catchy XD.

O.O But her face is round. I thought that would show that she is a girl. And so is her eyes.
Why, thank you. While I'm at it, might as well dump some practice comic sketches here.

Haha! Neat! that cat is so funny XD. With the phone part, did the other end pick up before the line went dead?
As for girls, yes the faces are usually rounder, but  the chin is still defined. Your style is fine though.  That leaves the eyes and nose. Think a smaller more refined nose would suit the girls better. Like in manga style. But yours seems more of a game style, so maybe a different thpe might be better. And eyes... lemme think about it.
Experiment! That's what.
Keep trying to improve!

I experiment everyday. XD And yes, the line was simply dead and she talked on before she realized it was dead.

This was my best comic. At least...it was. Oh well.

Ah, no. XD It's just that this was the one thing that I did that I love so much and I have to let it go. It was my best story I ever created.

Heya,nice work! Hmm I think though,you should work on your anatomy and hands ::) which are theeee most common struggles with drawing manga. To help with this, maybe see if there are any specific tips on the forums in the tips section.Nice pose on the very last girl, her face looks a lil strange though.
You have lot of talent! I most love the short comic of the kitty asking for milk :D
Look forward to more

You mean making comics?

And is that first pic...an alien? The eyes are seriously creepy *Hides behind Mai*
Nice colouring on the last sketch. Yeah, work on hands. I use my own as a ref, or watch anime and try to copy those.
Keep it up!
