Title: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: Veraal on December 06, 2007, 10:54:58 am
I dunno if this type of thread will work, maybe it'll be deserted in a few days...

but here goes:

I decided to make a thread where we can all post our drawings and artwork.
It does not need to be magnificent quality, just something you'd like to share.

Like this:

Go ahead, post!

Drawn in correlation with my sister. Basically, if it's drawn badly, I did that part.

Could someone teach me how to shade?
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Scetches Thread!
Post by: Veraal on December 06, 2007, 11:22:15 am
@ Kish, nice one, like the shadeing on the horse!

@ Patty, depends on what sort of shading you want to use. draw something with colours, so that we can decide. Like a t-shirt, always works.

Post by: PatMan33 on December 06, 2007, 11:24:31 am
Well I guess I mean like shadows... is it as simple as using a black pencil and slowly making it darker as you go?
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Scetches Thread!
Post by: Veraal on December 06, 2007, 11:31:34 am
Basically, yeah. You draw harder as you want the shadow to get darker.

I do it like this:

(http://img259.imageshack.us/img259/9693/shadingspracticeit1.png)

First i draw the shirt
Then i put on the basic colour
Then i draw a "border" for the shadow
Then i select the base colour, darken it in the colour box(it's called Farge, in my case. Norwegian :) ) I marked the colours i used with red, You have it in MSPaint, so you don't really need flash.
Then, i remove the line after i have filled with the darker colour.

You just need to, sort of imagine what the shadow would look like.

Flash is the best universal means of drawing.

Stealing is bad.

That would be a good idea, flash is my favourite tool when it comes to drawing and animating.

Do you draw with your mouse? i heartily reccommend one of the Wacom tablets, if you are going to draw hardcore, that is.
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Scetches Thread!

Seconded. The cheapest can run you a little over $100 but is worth it for the quality and how much you use it.

She's been drawing horses since she could hold a crayon.

I always wanted to get flash to mess around with drawing and basic animating. When i say basic animating it will probably be a static image moving from left to right across the screen. At least learn to do something cool.

Why is Flash so good for drawing? What does it have over a program specifically made for image processing like Photoshop or GIMP?

Possibly but more like a guy with no frames of animation who knows maybe I'll make it look good. Until I get a copy of the program it all just a pipe dream.

You should try clay animation. All you need is a webcam and a simple program like Logitech Image Studio. Heck, you don't even need clay, I made stuff with LEGO figures.

I find it incredible useful because it curves your line, making it seem more natural and cartoony. Also it smooths it out so a lot of imperfections are lost. Couple that with layers and a quick line sketch and you've got a quick, good, easy drawing.

That does sound useful, most image editors don't smooth your drawings. I'll look into Flash then. Thanks :)

The chins look fine for the most part. It's just their placement that needs fixing. Raise the jaws for small children or females (the first ones fit perfectly.) Lower it for men and mature females. (the last one is a perfect example.)

I know I've already commented on it but I need to say more. That has to be the single best picture ever drawn... I mean that makes the Mona Lisa look like a piece of excrement!

Well done, my good sir, well done (I don't care if I quoted the picture, it's too awesome not to be everywhere!).

Apparently he is a Male Elf Archivist. I just followed Yokto's description, though. Could be fun to draw some other characters, too... Or I could see if I could color this one with Photoshop. Photoshop is always fun. Would be more fun with a graphics tablet, though. Flisch just got one and he really likes to gloat over it on my face. >_>

This (http://www.elfwood.com/farp/figure/williamlibodyconstruction.html) is an interesting tutorial on drawing people, btw. That's actually what inspired me to try drawing Yokto's character. Well, before that I actually drew a creature for creation corner, but I'll have to scan that later. I have a lot of stuff to scan later. I should get that scanner out of my brother's room. It's not like he actually needs it for anything.

Guys, can you not alter or modify my drawings? I don't want to sound like a puss but that sort of thing offends me greatly. I know I don't sign my work, but that's only because I figured we respected each other enough not to do such things.
So in the future can you please not do that again? I really don't want to have to get legal on you guys.

I was obviously wrong to neglect this thread for as long as I did. I reread EVERYTHING and found this drawing I missed.

(http://img2.putfile.com/main/12/33917160646.jpg)

Cracked me up. Reminds me of this comic.

(http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y234/OmegaMet/20071107.jpg)

I need to learn to draw some day...

For those who don't know: Jerry Holkins, the writer of the comic is portrayed as Tycho, the guy in the blue shirt. While Mike Krahulik is portrayed as Gabe, the guy in the yellow shirt. and I recall, the little grey thing is a VCR who drinks a lot.

By the way, how did the Steve drawing go, Gec?

I'm probably going to refine that one. One thing a cartoonist learns to do is to never fall in love with the first design.

I use the brush tool in Photoshop with a nice wide spread. This is very apparent when you look at the detail in the nose area, you'll see some gentle swirls and a little bit of what I like to call 'pecking' to achieve the desired effect.

Just me, Gauph, and Flisch. A standard Wacom costs about $100 and it's a really nice deal with all the software that comes with it. I wouldn't suggest playing games with it though, you lose your freedom of surface range than with a regular mouse. I've gotten used to it though.

Okay, so when I saw Met's weirdo distorted pictures in the photo album topic --
http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=2966.msg464871#msg464871

I just had to do something special, seeing as your first words were that you were going to regret posting pics in the first place.  ;D
Woulda posted this sooner but by the time I was done, the forums were down. I waited and waited, but I just had to go to bed.

So, here's one for you, Met.

Oh, and I threw in an additional character at no extra charge. Guess who?
That'll be $230.



EDIT: I also have that tablet, Wacom Intuos3 6x8 with pen and mouse, no batteries or recharging required.
400 bucks at the time, probably still is.
Go for a cheaper version if you're wanting to try it out (Graphire perhaps).
..or be a nut and dive right in like I did.

Well.. that's if you get the Cintiq specifically. I don't really know of any others.
But yeah, look on youtube for Cintiq videos. It's like drawing on a huge monitor.
You can either look forward to back pain from hunching over it, or tired arms if you prop it up on something.

Still, it's pretty sweet.

So, that's a landscape I did on Photoshop today. It's based on this picture (http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/9-mai-landscape.jpg), which is... copyrighted by Emilie Wood, apparently... Well, I hope she doesn't mind.

It's not perfect, of course... But it's just for practice, you know. And in my opinion it's always good to try something new and since I haven't done anything like that before, I thought it would be nice to try. I was planning to color it, though, but somehow I ended up using just black and white. So, well, that was fun. Mmh... Passed some time. If I just had a tablet, I would never have to scan anything and could do all that awesome stuff I've seen at ConceptArt.org...

Very nice, Great Distance. Reminds me of a field trip I took once.. from the school, over a whole mountain, and to the lake on the other side.
That was fun.
Too many sticky weeds though..



Ach, I've hurt my back from drawing too much again.

It's the way I sit. I can't see very well if I sit way back and draw with the tablet on my lap.

Post by: Great Distance on December 30, 2007, 05:43:06 pm
I heard that somebody here was asking for House drawings. Here are some I did a while back.

Warning: these are all over 6 months old! :P

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/House.jpg)
This one I believe I've posted on the forum before. I think drawing that was the first time I really felt like I could, like, do it. Be a pro or whatever. I believe it was year 2006 when I made this. Yeah, I worked on it for days on Christmas vacation. It was the first time I made a portrait since 3rd grade when I drew myself from a picture taken at school. Ohh, I really felt powerful when I managed to draw this. Hehe, which reminds me, I get really high when I think one of my drawings is going to turn out awesome. Too bad it usually turns out that my visions were greater than my skills. But at least it felt really good for that moment, you know...

These I did last spring... they even have specific dates on them, just see for yourself. Well, the first ones don't. I just decided to add them later on to monitor my... drawing habits, I guess.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/house1.jpg)

Ohh, it is Cameron. Cameron and crappy sketches. Just look at Cameron, there she is again:

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/Cameron.jpg)
Now, I'm not saying that all the other sketches on that piece of paper are completely meaningless, no, no... It has all helped me to improve! Yes, everything you ever draw will help you to improve, that's for sure... Yeah, good old times...

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/house2.jpg)
So, all these I've drawn based on stopped video images or pictures of House the series. And this is apparently the first one where I marked the time.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/house3.jpg)
This crap apparently took me 3 hours and 30 minutes. Hey, I did this one on the same day as the last one. That's umm... interesting. Also interesting is that both these papers suck.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/house4.jpg)
Hey, this is cool. I had an entire episode of House on my computer so I decided to draw some stuff in it, starting from the beginning. the episode's name is Humpty Dumpty, in case you were wondering. Man, I should do something like this again.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/house5-1.jpg)
Oh look, here's another... Hmm, there is a clearly whiter spot in this one, which indicates that I might have wanted to erase something...

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/house6-1.jpg)
I once read that you should practice drawing everything. That was my inspiration. For this whole thing. And those are all Cuddy, btw. Well, almost. Whatever. They were all pretty fast drawings, I see.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/house7.jpg)
Tada, here is the last one. And it has the best drawings, too. Maybe that's why I decided to stop this insanity and continue living my life. And that insanity lasted less than a week. In the spring of 2007.

Man, I really should do something like this again. It was nuts. And fun. I really think it improved my drawings a bit. At least I learned to draw faster, I think. I mean, the first House drawing took me days. Then in the end I drew four recognizable House characters in four hours. Even if one doesn't have a face. (I'm referring to the ones I did on 4.5.2007 between 18:50 and 22:40. And 4.5.2007 is like day.month.year, ok?) But I'm afraid I've probably forgotten about everything I learned back then. So that's another reason I should try it again. Maybe they would turn out to be even better.

So what was a the plot of that episode i tried to work it out fromt he drawings but I couldnt get much. I just assuming from the name some one fell possibly off a wall. I'm guessing the metaphore ends there as I'm doubting there person was really an egg. Come to think of it the Nursery rythme never mentions once that Humpty Dumpty was an egg but we all know that he is one... or was one.

Oh, it would probably be very hard to figure out the plot from my drawings... I mostly drew stuff from the first ten minutes or so and included some background objects and people you'll never see again. Just whatever seemed interesting. And yeah, there was a guy who fell off a roof. I don't really remember what happened in that episode, but here's a very detailed recap, if you like: http://www.televisionwithoutpity.com/Shows/House/Stories/Humpty-Dumpty It's only 17 pages long. :P Well, there's a nutshell description, too, so it should be fine.

Well, I did desaturate that picture because that blue didn't really suit him. So... I think it's better this way. I'll stay away from brightness and contrast the next time.

Here is something I doodled a while back. Nothing of any importance really; they're really just doodles that I did while doing something else (can't remember what now).

(http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l27/Oviraptor85/Other/Other%20Drawings/doodlesmall.jpg)

If you want to see some sketches I've done throughout my lifetime (some of them I did when I was quite a bit younger), look here: http://s92.photobucket.com/albums/l27/Oviraptor85/Other/Other%20Drawings/ (http://s92.photobucket.com/albums/l27/Oviraptor85/Other/Other%20Drawings/)

I have tons of old drawings I've done. Maybe someday I can scan more of them in.

For some reason, whenever i am sitting down to draw whenever i have spare time, i am completely dry on ideas!
Then when i go to school, and it's super boring in class, i just puke out(mentally) ideas and draw them.

Here are some drawing I drew for Eligecos' dinosaur thread. I followed the short tutorial on there for these. The line quality here is pretty crap as always, so I guess I should pay more attention to that in the future.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Otukset%20sun%20muut/dinosaurs.jpg)

Or I could do this:

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Otukset%20sun%20muut/dinosaurs2.jpg)

But it takes too much time usually. Well... actually it didn't take that long. I'm just lazy. To be honest, I just got inspired to do this to some drawings I've posted lately... but I've got something else to do now, so I'll get to it later.

I scanned a big bunch of drawings a couple weeks back, so I'll probably be posting some more later.

Hey guys, as you know theres this little Superhero related RP thats been going on in the appropriate section of the site that those involved with are quite proud of (you may have seen the banner in Neoadept's signature).
Anyway, we recently started a second volume, set some sixty years after the events of the original RP thread. Since the cast of characters is all new, Neo's banner is now essentially obsolete.
Due to this, Inkling had the idea of asking in this thread to see if anyone would step up to the plate and illustrate some of our ideas and characters.

Of course, we wouldn't be offering any physical rewards, but we could name a neighborhood of a nasty distopian city after you.  ;)

Post by: Clayface on January 17, 2008, 06:24:21 pm
It's because I started dj'ing  ;D
and I'm either gonna go by, Dj Viking
Or Dj Dakk,
Viking being my rave name / the name most of my metal friends knew me as since before I started raving, so I've used that name for a long time,
and Dj Dakk is just a name I came up with that I think sounds good,

except there is already a Dj Viking, which I stoled this picture from
(http://b9.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/00035/95/92/35792959_l.jpg)
but he's not really well known,  because he lives in the middle of the US, and really there is only a rave scene in AZ/Cali/some other states.

I think the most important characters in the first part of the story were Happy Vales (the villain), Sparky, Darius Miyan, John Doe, Theodore Century and Teller Utopia. At least, they were the ones which were most involved with the main plot.

Whoa, I haven't checked this topic in a few weeks and I just came in to request that someone draw a few of my characters from the Superpower RP and here I see that Sam and Ink are way ahead of me! :D

Anyway there was a specific character that I wanted drawn if you guys have the time. As of now I have not released any information on him but he was very fun to create and I've tried drawing him but my skills are sub-par. This character is code-named 'The General' for the time being, would any of you be willing to draw this person for me? If I can get an artist on board I'll send you some details about how he looks, I would post them in here but I like to keep as much of my story as secret as possible.

I've got a massive catalog of characters so if you're in the mood to draw I can throw stuff at you that span all different kinds of personality types and physical descriptions.

Inspired by Cloverfield, I have made my own moster to live in my home town! Namely, Taylorsville. Hence the name, "The Taylorsville Monster." Anyway, it's based on crawdads, tree frogs, and some horrible demon bug thing that we found once that was as long as my pointing finger, and had ENORMOUS jaws of death. Anyway, say hello!

Anyhow, anyone up for a contest for best giant moster? I already made mine, obviously. After a month or something we could have a poll in a seperate thread. Anyone up for it?

Alright, we've been discussing the prospect of art for The New Superpower RP for quite some time now and we were wondering if any of the artists here would like to help us turn some portions of our story into a comic or maybe some stills that represent some of the more important scenes. We've tossed around the idea a bit in the past but the last time we seriously did anything about it was almost a year ago. If any of you are interested please post in The New Superpower RP Out of Character topic (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=7343.0) and we can talk about details.

There's a story regarding Dwarf Fortress -
A dwarf made a legendary floodgate depicting a dwarf being killed by an elephant.
Carrying the floodgate around with him slowed him down so much that he was one day killed by an elephant.


I remember hearing something like that a long while back; Krakow Sam mentioned it in chat earlier today.
Thought I'd doodle something about a dwarf and it turned into this.

I suppose the drawing is a little vague without color.
Whatever though. It's just some ol' sketchadoodle anyway.

Sooo, I picked up The Sentence Game Online again. It made me happy to realize that I've actually learned a couple of things since the last time playing that game. And it was actually fun! God, I don't want to look at those old pictures ever again. Besides not being fun they were really, really awful. So I'm sharing these two new ones with you because they actually made me feel like... a better person or something! Yay! No, I woudn't call them exactly awesome. But here they are, anyway.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/deck-1.jpg)
(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/juliet.jpg)


Oh, and in case anyone is interested, I have some drawing steps saved of the first one. So here is a tutorial of some sort. The whole thing was drawn on Photoshop with a mouse and took me an hour to complete.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/deck1.jpg)
The first cruddy sketch. I wouldn't have ever forgiven myself if I had left it like this. Seriously, it looks dumb.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/deck2.jpg)
The next thing I did was add another layer and lower the opacity on the first layer. Then I just zoomed in a bit and worked around the first sketch with a smaller brush and added some details.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/deck3.jpg)
Here I removed the first layer and added yet another one, and with a bit larger brush I tried to make it all look a little neater. Well, it still needs some clean-up but I had no time for that.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/deck-1.jpg)
Then finally, on another layer beneath the line drawing, I added the color. With a large brush I first made the whole area cyan and then picked a darker blue for the ocean, colored the ship grey and made the deck brown and blah blah blah. Then a smaller brush for details and a bit less opacity for shadows and highlights. I used darker versions of the colors for the shadows, not actual black like I've seen some people do.

With the second drawing up there, (scroll up, up, uppity, up - yes, I could put it here, but some people will want to scroll down, too) I didn't actually go through the second and third stage. Mostly because I didn't feel a need for that many details and spent more time thinking about the character posture and setup.

I'm probably getting my tablet sometime next week, so you may expect more from me on that side. I already got to try my big brother's
wacom (he started drawing a couple weeks back and already decided to get one, whereas I've been doing fine without one for years - bleh) and had enough time to draw a nice little tree. :P

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/Untitled-1.jpg)

His wacom is sized A6, btw, and we're getting one of those for me, too. It's a bit tiny but I guess I'll get used to it. And of course I can always zoom in for details. The only thing I'm worried about is getting used to drawing tiny stuff with pens and paper, too, but hopefully I'll also learn something new with it.

Ah well, I am happy for now. I think. But somehow I feel like I need reassurance to know that I'm not somehow going to forget how to draw. It's a stupid feeling, really.

Hey! New game.

http://drawergeeks.com/Kid_Creatures/Kid_Creatures.html

I love that sort of thing.

Oh, those are really inspiring. It says so much about how you can make basically anything look good and realistic, if you just know what you're doing. I'd love to do something like that. That one you made, Gauph, is very cool, too. And it actually looks like the original one very much. Makes me think about how you could apply this sort of thing to other stuff. Like drawing fan art on the TAA... Hey, I like your coloring, too. Hmmh. I don't really know that much about coloring, to think about it. Damn, I must have been doing everything wrong from the beginning.

I was just thinking that how simple colorings I could use... I've always been trying to do things the hard way. First I should figure out how to do it simple and then expand to more realistic and detailed stuff. One thing I've noticed about drawing is areas. Picking out distinctive areas from the subject you are trying draw. Areas that have a darker color, for example. Oh well, I don't feel like explaining that right now. What the hell was I talking about in the first place, anyway? Oh yeah, simple. Simple is good. You start with a simple sketch, and then expand to more detailed stuff. I don't see any reason why that shouldn't apply to colors, as well. Areas... gotta remember that...

Oh, here be an apple I drew on Photoshop, if you care to see. I was going to post it earlier... I did, but I deleted it, because I hated myself. God, I really hate myself when I hate myself. Um, yeah.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/apple3.jpg)

Apple, yay! It be nice apple. drawn from life. You know why I deleted it?? because it was too fuzzy! I thought that everyone would hate a fuzzy apple... Apple... fuzzy... Bleaargh, thank god it's Tuesday, Sunday, I mean. Eh, 2 am. And I haven't eaten anything since, like, 9 pm... Oh God, thoughts... falling apart, system... crashing... DID I METNION THAt um yeah whatever, let's hope that no one read this last paragraph. Time to go to bed or whatever! GOOD NIGHT!

Oh, Gec posted a sketch. Awesome! WOOO I LOVE YOU! I LOVE EVERYONE!!! :D Ehehe...he. Good night.

GD, feel good about yourself or I will be forced to compliment you.

You... you mean you don't want to compliment me?! Oh my god, I didn't know you hated me that much! You-you don't want to compliment me because I'm unpopular! Unpopular, yes! No one WANTS to LIKE me, oh my goodness! It's because of my hair, isn't it... Yes, I knew it, it's all because of my hair...

OH MAN they're already talking about something else! Now quickly, distract them with something to make them talk about you again! NOW LOOK AT THIS! A new picture!!! Thrilling creatures and unseen excitement!

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Otukset%20sun%20muut/creatures.jpg)

Oh, I guess no one just cares. People have their own lives to worry about, you know? Even Gauph doesn't care when I actually talked about him! Well, my stupid doodlings are probably a bit overshadowed by the awesomeness that is Eligecos. Hey, I suppose that Gauph and Gec are sorta buddies now. Being both such big artists and all. They just talk with each other all the time, even. Hey, I'm not one of the cool guys. I'm not one of THEM. Well, I'm not exactly a guy either.

Meanwhile, Brandon is drawing the coolest stuff I've ever seen. I say he beats us all. Oh, what us? Me and myself. Because myself is all I think about. There has never existed another me and I should be proud of it. I think. Now I'm just rambling.

I'm afraid there isn't a link, I just made it up, but it goes something like this:

Sketch out some terrain.  It cna be anything from flat ground to caves, to a cityscape.
Draw one neutral stickman standing somewhere.
Determine who's going first.
That person then draws a stickman doing something to defeat the first stickman.
You then defeat their stickman.
The cycle continues until you get board, at which point I have traditionaly ended the game with Bush calling in a nuclear strike, but you cna do whatever you want.

Made from a fun little game where you and an opponent take turns drawing stick figures defeating eachother in various ways.  It's crazy!

Heh. I remember playing a similar game with my friends at school, except it wasn't limited to stick figures.

Here is one of my sketches that I toyed around with in paint.  Its about two people walking on opposite sides of a moobius strip, never meeting, but continuing on in the same world...

Post by: Gauphastus on February 29, 2008, 12:02:08 pm
Well, I think it's good that you're trying different styles. It's important for an artist to explore different shape dictionaries. When you're done with trying it out, you take what you needed from it and leave everything else.
From all that, you refine your own style. And you no doubt become more efficient in your drawing as well.

For everyone's information, all discussion (and updates) pertaining to the forum member avatar group shot thing I'm working on will now take place in here so we don't clutter up the off-topic topic. It has been mostly on-topic in there, and it's screwing with the natural order. Animals are dying, plants are bursting into flames, and I keep losing at Mario Bros.

So yeah, in here.

Alright?
Good, so glad we had this discussion.


And just to cement this --

Yuu, as a member of Kingdom Heart II's Organization XIII
Me, my avatar, original character
Met, as Skull Kid
Brandonazz, as himself
PatMan33, as that huge queen bug boss.. thing from Gnat Attack
Inkling, as Mr. Tumnus

Four more tomorrow, as one of them's gonna be really easy.

Yours is probably more like second easiest. It'll be pretty small anyways.
But expect it to have the characteristic expression on its face. Requires little creativity on my part, but that's alright.
There's the arranging and interactions to be done as I move along too.

Can't have everyone just standing there, hangin' out.

Don't forget to include me in the avatar shot Gauphy. I'm still the gecko. :D

Post by: Gauphastus on March 16, 2008, 07:47:08 pm
Sure, I'll... hey.
Doooh!

Alright then. Do you want to be gecko or Luigi?
Oh, wait. Nevermind. I've already decided.

*wrings his hands menacingly*

Actually, I haven't yet. I'll get around to it soon enough.


Just note, as for my order, I won't bother revealing that.
I'll just say that the reason is due to hand and back strain over time. I'm not overworking myself or anything; it's just that if were to do like ten members a day, I'd be a complete cripple by the time it was done.

Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: Gauphastus on March 16, 2008, 08:19:12 pm
I refuse no man, or beast.
Or whatever.
I just hope you have a source for your avatar, martyk. It looks like an original creature of some sort.
EDIT: Nevermind. It's in your sig there. :P

For future reference, anyone with an avatar that's not really easily identifiable (if it's low-quality, cropped, distorted, recolored, macro text'd, etc.), even if you have the slightest doubt, send me the source image, link, or whatever via PM.
I've said before that if I don't know what's up with your avatar, I'll send you a PM.


And that's okay Sporelover, I happen to already have that picture of Wright.  :)

No sweat, guys. The both of you, Blarg and DoctorZ, were added to the list (not the picture just yet) two days ago when I started taking a few notes on everyone.

Hello.

So, did four more like I said.

Completed Members (as of this post)
Yuu, as a member of Kingdom Heart II's Organization XIII
Me, my avatar, original character
Met, as Skull Kid
Brandonazz, as himself
PatMan33, as that huge queen bug boss.. thing from Gnat Attack
Inkling, as Mr. Tumnus
Daxx, as Quote from Cave Story
Slartibartfast, as.. Slartibartfast, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
GreatDistance, as something she drew that is not a self portrait
Celdur, as creepy DS


(http://img227.imageshack.us/img227/8677/fourmoreky5.png)
The full-size image is now 1800x900.
Preview is small so as to prevent spoiling. It ain't done, and I don't want to give off too much of an impression yet.


Three more tomorrow. I think. To be clear, don't ask who. I've got a plan laid out like a day in advance, and it is easily subject to change as ideas come to me.
Any day now, I will be whisked away on my magic carpet to go deal with this income tax thing. I will take that day and the one after as a break.
My back is starting to act up on me, but only a little.

Don't get too antsy now. I saved and made notes on a hell of a lot of avatars today.
This is going to take awhile, especially since, you know, huge dragons, 9 foot tall lizard things, aliens, Hot Rod, and more.
This is also going to be the most epic goddamned thing on the internet, I tell you what.

Just pray I don't wake up dead the next morning and it will eventually be finished.

You gonna color it?

Post by: Met on March 18, 2008, 06:23:51 pm
Nope, just going to leave me colored in. That would be the logical reasoning, now wouldn't it, Z?
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: Doctor Z on March 18, 2008, 06:25:46 pm
Well, there is the chance that by the time he's finished sketching us all, he'll say "screw it" and release the unfinished version.

Plus, you HAVE to stick the #80 on Kirbyberg. It... You just have to!
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: Gauphastus on March 18, 2008, 06:28:33 pm
Hah.
Yeah, I'll color it. At least flats, and if I don't start to suck incredibly, I'll render it.
That will also add to the completion time, aside from the touch-ups, cleaning and inking I'll be doing eventually.

Ah, Met. Just so you know, in case you were curious, the reason Skull Kid is colored in is because I wanted to make sure I knew which shape was what later on. I might have to redraw him entirely as his linework is just a little messy.
He's like the third one I drew.

Yep.

Everything should be alright.

Also, Gunner, you've been in since you asked in OTT. I read your post mentioning you'd rather be sandman, as it was your old avatar. Is that right? So, I'm gonna need it (and possibly any sort of full-sized image it was cropped from) as reference material.


Yeah. Here we are again with another update.

There's still got a long way to go, and the requests keep coming in (even though I'd already noted most of you guys down).  :P
If you're on the fence about this, don't wait too long. After this is completed, there's only a tiny chance I'll add you into a revised version. And that's even if I could be bothered to do one after all this is over.
Besides, the sooner you get in, the crazier the interactions might get as ideas come to me.

It's that time again.
But first, I'll respond to a few things.

Thanks for the references, Gunner. I'll have to do a bit more research if I want him to look his best.
No, Kaizer. Not necessarily. I have much grander plans for you.
Plank of Wood, that was the plan, yeah. :)
Don't worry, DoctorZ. Now that I'm all warmed up, there's a good chance I'll redraw the first few. Having them just standing there looks alright, but it's just not awesome enough.
No, Malt did not ask. I added him anyway.

And operaghost21, I sent you a PM. Just need you to elaborate for me as to what exactly I'm looking at...


Now to the point!

Image has grown to 3300 x 1100 pixels in size, and takes up 9.01 MB of space.
The document contains very near 100 layers! When I start coloring, that number may very well become 10x that!


Everything is going smoothly so far. When I'm half-way through the lineart phase, I'll take time to do some cleanup.
The previews will certainly be a lot clearer for you.

Thanks.

I think the question leads back to, what would he put in for you? You have a constantly changing avatar.

Months from now when we're looking back on this, will we look at "your" character and say "Oh, that's Andrew Ryan."

We worked it out via PM anyway. He got me exactly what I needed.
I went ahead and watched a video on youtube about that character. It was pretty harsh.
Also, I didn't know what the heck was going on.

Eh, that's okay. Not my game.

And yeah, Durgon. That PM was about this project.

Yah the game was pretty hardcore. You really need to play the game in order to understand it. But on the plus side it was voted by gamespot to have the best story, atmosphere, and best original music of 07. I bought the game for it's depth and art deco-ness.

I hardly ever change my Avatar. I did it for the DnD when KS made a great picture of my DnD Character. I also have a have a X-mas themed one to made by LadyM based on my regular Avatar. This Avatar is actually the first one i use on the forum. (It was specially made for the forum.)

I think I can just about remember most of my avatars that last more than a few days.

There was the Metroid at the beggining. Then Omega Metroid. Then the Omega Metroid in a different style. At some point Jesus. Then Skull Kid. Then Morgan Freeman. Then Skull Kid again. It's been Skull Kid for a good year if I recall.

Okay, so I finally managed to get through, and in a few hours I'll be off to do the tax thing.
The refund I'll undoubtedly get will all go toward my impressive supercomputer project coming up toward the end of the month; if built in time, and it probably won't be, it'll certainly speed up the process of getting this drawing done.
This computer has been moaning more and more about the size of the document, but I'll deal with it as long as necessary. Don't worry.  :)

Like I said awhile back in advance, I'll be taking today as a break (but not tomorrow, like I'd originally planned). Let's all go chill out on IRC.

After a day's break to deal with some business, I've returned to the project.
Eventually, I'm going to get my new computer parts ordered, and then I'll have to build it.
That won't be for a couple more weeks though, after I've got every single thing lined up.

Other than that, there are no other issues at the moment.

Needed more surfaces for the avatars I was going to add today, so I threw in a little building.

Andrew, I don't know what you mean. Did the image break? If so, it might be only on your end, as nobody else seems to have any issues.


Movin' on, we've got quite a ways to go yet. There are still many creatures, people, animals, and... strange things to be added to the picture.
Just think of all the EXP I'm getting from this, folks. My abilities slowly but surely increase from all of this.
Soon enough, I will be high enough level to start charging you money for drawings! Won't that be awesome?

For real though, a few more coming tomorrow.

I'm adding mostly active members, and only a handful of folks who aren't around much anymore.

Anyways, almost halfway there.
If I'm good, I'll do some more tomorrow. I'd do a little bit right now but I fired my office chair, and I'm sitting a little unevenly in my awesome suede recliner at the moment.

Ahhh....  :)

Yeah, when I do the whole computer building thing, I'll be sure to look into new desks and chairs -- though, that'll probably be after this is done.
Sure could use a new computer now. This document is really harshing my RAM and crap.  :D

Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: Gauphastus on March 29, 2008, 12:07:06 pm
Yeah, sorry about that, folks.  :D

Some things have come up. Nothing serious or bad, but they require my full attention.
I won't get into that though. Anyways, I've been using what little spare time I have on the picture.

Seeing as the updates would be so pathetic, I haven't bothered with the whole preview and list thing.
But I haven't burned out! I know there were some concerns about that not so long ago. I am really itching to dive back into this thing; problem is that I simply can't at the moment.

Of course I will update as soon as I have a few more ready.


I even wrote this is the tiny block of spare time I luckily had available today.
See you guys soon though. This project is not dead (like I said, I am still doing what I can), and I'll not have you guys calling me a liar in the coming weeks.  :)


EDIT: And no, this isn't a setup for canceling the project on April Fool's day or whatever.
Even if I cared about that day, you could see that gag coming a mile away...

Post by: Gauphastus on April 02, 2008, 01:23:48 pm
Double post. What can you do? *shrug*

Okay, so there is a serious monkey wrench in the plans now. My work just called me. I guess they got a strawberry contract, and now they need laborers.
And guess who the best laborer of all is? Naturally, they would call me.  :D

But really, this might heavily delay the drawing. Depends how often they need me.


Okay, so while I wasn't updating, I was actually still working on the picture.
Here is a list of the members I've added in the past few days.

Veraal, as combine logo
QuantumBurrito, obvious
TotalSandwich, obvious
Serdun, as robot
Sporelover66, as Will Wright
Fink, as heap of stars
Froman, as stickmen
tomasgaquino, as chick from Psycho
Lualmoba, as more graffiti
Kratok, as alien from Metal Slug
Gunner, as Sandman
xenomorph, as alien (this one took three hours)
Borogove, as.. bearded guy
Danger Mouse, obvious
DMB, as Stubbs the zombie
Interitus, as Hot Rod action figure
DevilMachine, as Voltron action figure
spaceoddity, as some lanky guy
martyk, as Kratair
HydromancerX, as Naucean

No preview. I didn't want to make the image file any bigger, so I hid a bunch of layers and drew in their place.
Then I hid those and drew even more.
And so on.
So the image isn't organized and a whole bunch of stuff is invisible.


Even in light of the recent surprise of work calling me in, I will not be posting this project until it is totally complete.
I'm gonna do some more right now.
Time to bust my ass...

Okay, hello.
I did not do anything project related today it turns out. After coloring my avatar real quick, I realized I might need a bit of a refresher.

But first I needed a sketch.
So I drew some punk chick.
(http://gauphastus.googlepages.com/Punk-chick2.png)

Then I tossed in the flats.
(http://gauphastus.googlepages.com/Punk-chick2color.png)


And then I got to the real work.
Here is the end result.
(http://gauphastus.googlepages.com/Punk-chick2supercolored.png)


Now I am once again (at least mildly) confident in my coloring ability.
It's not amazing, but it's a hell of a lot better than what I used to do.

Enjoy.
EDIT: God damn, imageshack sucks.

Steve will be added.
The mods and Steve are all to be done last, as I've a certain plan in mind.

But besides that, I wanted to do more painting practice.

Sos I drew me another chick.

Lines

And then color (forgot to save a pic when I put the flats in, but whatever).
(http://gauphastus.googlepages.com/FightinChickSupercolored.png)


Still getting better, but I might need to do more actual painting studies based off real photographs.
It'd help me along a bit more I think.

Yo ho ho.

Post by: Great Distance on April 07, 2008, 08:38:08 am
Ah well, I've shown most of these on irc, but here's some drawings I made a couple of weeks back. I was going to post them after Gauph has finished the group pic, but it seems to be taking longer than I expected, so I'll just put them here now. In the order I made them:

Alright, so this one is a photograph. This is what I based the next three drawings on.
(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/guy-1.jpg)

So, first I decided to see how well I'd remember it with one look.
(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/guy1.jpg)
Eh, wonderful. Here I decided that I should try drawing some more people from my imagination/memory later. Well, at least that's something I could practise on.

Anyway, I continued with drawing while looking at the picture, like I usually do.
(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/guy2.jpg)
It's a bit messy, because I wasn't going to make it that detailed at first. But it was just so fun that I decided to go on a bit longer and so this happened.

After that I tried to draw it from my memory again.
(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/guy3.jpg)
Well, I guess that looks better than the first one. Still quite messy, though. But I guess I sort of proved to myself that it isn't completely useless to draw from photographs.

Well, after the fiasco that was the first drawing from memory of the aforementioned guy, I had to prove myself that I can draw decent-looking people from my imagination.
(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/walkingman.jpg)
He ended up looking a bit different than I meant to, though. Like a little Japanese kid or something. Took me quite too long to draw and especially to clean up, so I wasn't satisfied. Being able to put some simple wrinkles on the clothes made me happy, though. :P

Drew another person from a photograph for change. Also because it makes me feel like a better artist every time.
(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/shoppingwoman.jpg)

Then I tried to do a couple of fast ones from my imagination. I was quite happy with them, actually.
(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/fight.jpg)
(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/letsrock.jpg)

I remembered that I once told Yokto I would draw a portrait of him, so I started working on that. This was also going to be just a sketch, but I couldn't stop myself from adding more details.
(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/Yokto-1.jpg)

Drew another stupid guy from my imagination. He looks like a dumbass, though.
(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/Mike2.jpg)

Well, then I finally started reading one of those books by Andrew Loomis. I got to about page 20 and tried some of the tips on a few drawings. These are kinda from my imagination, just tried to apply some of his tips on construction and stuff. I'll try to read the rest of the book one day, because there some more advanced stuff in the end.
(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/loomisharjoitukset1.jpg)
(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/loomisharjoitukset2.jpg)
(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/loomisharjoitukset4.jpg)

So I got bored of that and started working on portraits again.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/Yokto2.jpg)
Colored the one of Yokto.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/doctorZ.jpg)
Then there was one DoctorZ that wished to be drawn. Looks pretty crap, though. I blame the photograph being too small. And the weird lighting. And the red hair. And his fat face. Also, my impatience. It looks better as a smaller image, though.

Anyway, I was a bit disappointed, so I picked another person to draw.
(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/Huckbuck.jpg)
This is Huckbuck. Made his face too wide, though. The same thing happened with PatMan.

So, that's one week's worth of drawings. Haven't been drawing too much since that. I think I've already forgotten everything I might have learned back then. I just feel that I need to constantly prove myself that I can do it. I just screw up so many times. I wish I'd learn how to not screw up.

The post turned out a bit massive, so I'll just tell you that there are 16 images here, in case you think you might have missed anything.

Oh, I also made a new avatar yesterday...
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: Daxx on April 07, 2008, 08:42:31 am
Those portraits are amazing, GD! You should definitely do more of them. I think my favourite part is that the colouring makes them look almost photo-realistic.

Also Yokto looks disturbingly like me
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: Brandonazz on April 07, 2008, 08:45:01 am
Those are all amazing GD.

I don't suppose I could see you color my picture?

Post by: Great Distance on April 07, 2008, 09:02:35 am
I don't suppose I could see you color my picture?

Well, I am feeling a bit lazy at the moment... There's so much I should be doing, too. For example the stuff for art class I should have finished a couple of months ago. And I need to write a thing in Swedish for Wednesday. Then there's that big literature thing that has so far been delayed more than just a few months. And I don't like to touch stuff that I drew a long time ago. When it's done, it's done. The best thing you can do is try to improve the next time.

Though if you have another photo of yourself, I might consider drawing that. I'm just not sure I want to add any more stuff to my to-do list.

Still working on lighting. And those damn shadows.
I'll get 'em down eventually.

At least now I can fully draw something and color it in only a few hours.
That Inspector Gadget vs. Megaman and Jenny thing I did took way too long for what it was...  :P
I'll have to redraw it someday.



Also, very Dragonball Z-ish, ArkServer.

Well, here's a couple of things I drew today.

A weird sketchy thing of the crap hiding under my monitor.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Otukset%20sun%20muut/coconut.jpg)
There was a C.O.W. topic called Coconut Cruncher and I got a tiny little idea on it. ^^ I don't think this one is going to enter the competition, though.

Post by: Gauphastus on April 16, 2008, 12:14:41 pm
Well, I'm basically all done those painting exercises I was doing (those chicks, and that alien guy).
I've been trying to work on it on the weekends but it's not working out very well.
Those days usually get spent taking care of other business.

I work during the weekdays. Eventually, they'll start scheduling for weekends as well, and that'll make this even harder.

In any case, I haven't touched the thing for a bit now. Just can't.
Honestly, I didn't expect them to start calling me in until May...

EDIT: Also, while memtest cannot detect anything, I think there are some flaws with my RAM.
I'm not sure, but it is causing me some grief when opening large programs along with other things.

Cool picture of Öresund Huggs. But would not the second bridge be a bit to low? There is a reason after all why the Öresund bridge is so tall ;)

Trying to get over my block. Have been browsing for new art books and seems to be helping. Need to draw more stuff soon. I just need to work on hair. I got fed up with getting this kid's hair texture and style just right and just settled on something rather abstract. I would have left him out completely but it wouldn't tie in as to why T-Rex here is sitting on a red wagon. I'm happy with the coloring and sheen of the dino though. Anyways, I call it The Red Wagon Ride.

Always practicing, always failing.

Does anyone else feel like drawing a good picture is almost like some random lottery, and when you start a doodle, you have no idea if your brain will fail utterly or you'll somehow churn out a masterpiece?.

Roughly every year I change my fancy art signature. Here they are, badly reproduced with a laptop touchpad.

The first is kinda an arrow, the second was meant to look like a building (because I was interested in architecture at the time) and the last is a cylinder to go along with the fact that I have doodled millions of random shapes recently.

Martin 1.2 from amazing adventure.

Just brushing up. seems i am indeed rusty.
at first, the thing on the the left side was my first option as a face, but he looked like a paedophile.
then i noticed how hard it actually was to get the "martin" feel. his face is (or should i say all faces are) hard to draw!

So i just made him look like a retard. don't worry though, that's not the way he's going to be, just could't care to make him look serious.
Maybe going to try and get a more gritty feel in the amazing adventure for summer holidays, which i will undoubtedly bring it back up from the depths of the rp forum.

Going to try and make the pictures more detailed and interresting. shadows and all that in the martin 1.1 version was just a start.

cheers.

Political children's books is a long-standing tradition in Sweden, and my mate decided to bring it into the 2000's with his environmental lecture, made for a school project. He asked me to illustrate it, and of course I said yes! Here are some of the highlights; Al Gore(referred to in the text as "The wise man"), Little Oak, Earth, dead fishes, a Dubai prince, and Little Oak again.

C'mon, before 1980 every single children's book was written by communists, socialists or environmentalists(the old, crazy kind).  :)  Just look at the criticism Pippi Longstocking got in the 60's for her treasure chest...and let's not forget Bamse.

Pippi isn't propaganda for anything but her capitalistic(old-fashioned really) view of life didn't suit the leftists of the time. Bamse is commonly known as a socialist icon. The strong has to help the weak ones, the bad guy looks like this: Krösus Sork (http://seriewikin.serieframjandet.se/images/3/38/Kr%C3%B6sus_Sork.png), etc etc.

Hey Merry Doodles and Sketch folks! I was wondering if there are any of you out there who would be interested in doing some art for The New Superpower RP down in the Storytelling & Roleplaying section. We've made this request before and have had some takers but it keeps falling apart. Gotta be in it to win it though! Because of that we're asking again!

If any of you are interested send me a PM or just start talking in the OoC topic (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=7343.0)!

There are no deadlines, if you want to work with us you can take as much time as you need. We will supply you with some detailed descriptions and everything. Or, if taking orders isn't your thing, read a few pages and if you are inspired talk to some of us!

Thanks for your time! :)

(http://i27.tinypic.com/6drb6d.jpg)

"He seems unfazed by it all, laughing at the hero, flaunting the Sandman weapon he managed to win at the cost of a permanent scar to the eye, along with the trophy "heads" of Infernals he himself has vanquished. He sways a doll back and forth, laughing, laughing because he knows that you are not going to live for much longer.

@Huckbuck

It's certainly not a bad portrait. The proportions and such seem okay and the color choices look pretty right, too. So I'd say it's mainly an issue of technique. You appear to be using very small brushes and low opacity, so the end results tend to be a bit messy.

Something you could try is colorpicking from the drawing. Using plenty of colors and low opacity is very useful for finding just the correct colors to use. But that may result in unneeded texture that distracts you from the actual drawing. You can clean it up by picking the needed color from the drawing and filling the area with that color using high opacity. A bigger brush may also be helpful, as it decreases the chance of getting unneeded texture on the drawing.



Anyway, I've been planning to post some of these for a while, so here's some of my latest drawings.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/kimi.jpg)
This is my latest drawing. It had been a while since the last time I drew a proper portrait, so I decided to draw my favourite Formula 1 driver, Kimi Räikkönen. It may not be perfect, and I got a bit bored with the clothes, but it was good practice.

I should probably start doing some more of these again. They don't need to be portraits, either. It would be nice to just study light and shadow, for example. You may need to make a lot of drawings to learn how to draw as many specific things and objects as possible, but light and shadow is something that affects everything.

Another interesting subject would be learning how to properly use line art and such. It's good to know a lot of art styles.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Elaimet/bird.jpg)(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Elaimet/wolfie.jpg)
I drew a couple of animals a while back. I'm not sure if I've posted these before, but I didn't see them in my photobucket, so...

Anyway, these might just be an example of a couple of different styles I've used. The bird was done with the basic pencil technique. Low opacity and small brush. With the wolf thingie there I used more solid colors, high opacity and changing brush size.

They are from reference, as in I grabbed a photograph somewhere and set it next to the drawing in Photoshop. How I do all of my portraits, really.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/carbuffalo.jpg)
Err, this... Well, I was practising on my skills on drawing from the mind, so I asked people in IRC what I should draw. The first one is obviously a car, and the second one is my sad attempt at a buffalo. Anyway, it was fun to draw.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/skulli.jpg)
Here's some more doodles I did later on. This time I just used my imagination. It was nice to notice that the skull study I did about a year ago didn't completely go to waste. It's especially encouraging, as I, at one time, kind of doubted the usefulness of all these studies. Drawing faces and people and animals and such. So it might be that I'll be doing more of them in the future.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/housekesken2.jpg)
Oh, right. This. I started this at the end of the school year. It was basically my first attempt to draw the whole photograph that I used as reference. But I just got really bored of it in the end and didn't finish it. Just too many details. Couldn't even get started on the faces. I was actually going to make some sort of a stupid tutorial out of this, but it seems pretty pointless at the moment. Maybe I'll do one later.

Looking at Dubyah again, it looks as if you pulled his neck and ears forward. His neck should be a little slimmer and his ears a little flatter to his head, as well as the skin below them. It's a perspective thing methinks.

OK, I have been looking for a logo/artwork for my 'band' - Longcount (http://myspace.com/longcount).

As I suck at drawing, either by hand or in PC, in the "off-topic... topic" they said this would be the right place to ask for someone to do it, as GS artists are pretty good! :D

So, please, will anyone do this for me? PM me if you're interested, and I shall give you details!

It's partly in the link, but here goes:


-My main goal in making music is to explore the mathematical/physical properties of sound to reach a whole new level of fusion very different styles (trip-hop, ambient, jazz, industrial, softcore rave, DnB and a lot more);

-I do experimental electronic music. Are you familiar with techno/trance? It has nothing to do with it! :P

-Name concept: see the biography in the myspace link, it has to do with the concept of the end of the world predicted by the maya:

I suggest getting some water-colour paints, a large piece of paper, something like a tray, and going out to paint a tree. Watching the interplay of colour will give you some good inspiration.

I'm with Gec, that tree looks really good.

Sure, its not photorealistic, but i think photorealistic drawing is somewhat unnecessary in an age of, well, photographs.
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: Axelgear on July 08, 2008, 10:40:16 am
I happen to think the classical attempt at photorealism is interesting. Who can look at some of the drawings of Leonardo da Vinci and not be amazed by the attention to detail?

I'm with Gec, that tree looks really good.

Well, you can't take a photograph of your mind, can you? ;)

Anyway, it always helps to just look around you and practise drawing all the things you can. And if you really want to improve, then that's great. Just because someone tells you that something looks good, it doesn't mean you have to be satisfied with it.

You could always try different styles, for example. I'm sure there are many ways to draw a tree. And many different kinds of trees to draw, too. Just find a style that suits you. If you want to go photorealistic, that's okay, but it's not the only way to go about it. Usually the various styles are some form of simplification and/or exaggeration. Meaning that if some detail is getting in the way of your drawing, you may just get rid of it.

Knowing the structure of what you're drawing is generally pretty helpful, too. You could just go outside and look at a tree and try to understand how it works. And if you're planning to color it or shade it, understanding how light and shadow works is also pretty important. So just go out and draw that tree. Or just do a google search (http://images.google.fi/images?hl=fi&q=tree&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi).

Post by: Great Distance on July 09, 2008, 04:45:52 am
Yeah, I think that tree looks perfectly fine, too. I'm sorry if I forgot to mention that in my post. :) But don't forget that practice is always good! I've found that drawing is much more fun when you don't need to be unsure about what to do next. Using photo reference and drawing from model can be useful in that part. And it always helps to just draw, draw and draw.
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: Yokto on July 09, 2008, 05:51:59 am
I would recommend Alwayswatching that you draw it on a larger scale. The tree is good as it is however. It now more depended on what you wish to achieve. more photorealism? some special style? Something that is suited for water coloring or inking? Maybe even as a base for a oil painting?

I do agree with GD that practicing different styles is a good thing. Trying out new method. Trying to make something that is as photo realistic as possible and do the totally opposite and draw something that is cartoony or even abstract. Drawing after all is just a way to communicate and you can not really go wrong with any method :)

Well the Shinigami comes form Western culture form start so i guess the Grim Reaper would be more of the original form of the Shinigami. That being said even the Grim Reaper is know to have different appearances. (Though the most classic i guess is the hooded figure, often a skeleton with a Scythe.)

More life like Angel of Death is not that uncommon ether however.

If you're in Photoshop or something similarily powerful, delete the background layer, write the text on the gray/white squares that should turn up, and save it as a PNG. Make sure you save it interlaced.

Some tree studies based on photographs I found on the internet.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/anothertree2.jpg)
One I did from imagination afterwards.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/trees2kesk.jpg)
Another tree study, this time with colors.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/maisema.jpg)
And this one from my head again.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/claythings.jpg)
I decided to study light and shadow by the use of some very basic shapes, so I created these out of clay and drew them.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/roomlight1.jpg)
Some faster sketches based on the clay thingies.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/construction-1.jpg)
I found some objects in my house and tried to construct them from those basic shapes.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/construction2.jpg)
Some more of those.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/imagination.jpg)
After studying the basic shapes I decided to test out my skills by doing this from imagination. At the least I felt more confident in doing the shadows and such.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Otukset%20sun%20muut/hunched-1.jpg)
Then I decided to take a break from all the studies and made this for a Daily Sketch Group thing on Conceptart.org.

Alright, due to artistic restrictions in the socialist democracy that is the Spore: Creation Corner, the TAA was unable to aid me with my request, so I now bring my tidings to the more free land that is The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread.

So, guys, I'm trying to produce a high-detail, high definition art version of my Red Square, for T-Shirt purposes. Your aid would be greatly appreciated.

(Pictures, again.)

Hello all it's me Rct here to make a request!

Nothing specific but I am in need of your assistance. With the Spore CC challenge almost complete (It's very hard compiling that list XP) I need to know if any of you have experience with creating collages. If you are new to this concept check out this thread. (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=13353.0) Once it's done I hope to get this on the front page of Gaming Steve ^^

Now if any of you have experience handling multiple pics/files and have extensive knowledge of photoshop and are well skilled please pm me.

Heya folks.

I frequent the Spore area, but haven't much wandered outside that part of the forums yet. :)

So first off, hi to anyone I haven't met there!

So anyways, I heard that this thread existed, and as I'm always excited to share artwork, I figured I'd take this opportunity to do a quick painting of my Xago pirate lizards from Spore. :D

(http://img158.imageshack.us/img158/8687/xagofe3.jpg)

I rushed this, because it began taking longer than expected. In total, about 3 hours (nonstop - my fingers ache as I type). I forgot the stripes on his tail... whoops. Oh well. He's a cute little bugger anyway!

If anyone's interested, I did this in OpenCanvas - so I have an Event file if anyone is curious about the process. I'm hardly the best, obviously, but I do use a few nifty techniques that perhaps other people can learn from?

Anyways, the Event file is here: http://rapidshare.com/files/144700180/xago.oe4.html

And OpenCanvas is a free, super-lightweight painting program which you can get here: http://www.drawfurry.com/?p=42

~Day 3:
Genetic restructuring has caused few physical mutations in the subject thus far. Elongated fingers, whitened pupils, loss of hair. Psychological changes, however, are more apparent. Subject has become lethargic, depressed, and refuses to communicate with handlers.


~Day 12:
Skeletal structure has grown rapidly. Enlarged eye sockets, elongation of jaw and skull, restructured limbs, protrusions in spine, growth of fangs and nails. Near-complete hair loss. Tests indicate that subject no longer has sense of self after attacking own shape in a mirror.


~Day 37:
Skeletal structure has made subject quadrupedal, spikes protrude from spine and most joints. While scans indicate that digestive system is still configured omnivorously, subject refues to eat anything but raw meat. Subject has become increasingly hostile. Tests conclude that subject #463746 is failure. Subject abandoned in Section ZZA of Landmass 5.

As there are no other inhabited planets within the system, it is recommended that testing relocate to Thyyght system. Log end.

I haven't really been drawing anything in a while, but today I suddenly felt like I had to... right when I'm supposed to be studying for my exams, of course. So I decided to find a good photograph on the internet and draw that. This (http://www.allmoviephoto.com/photo/2007_sweeney_todd_001.html) is the image I chose. Made it a bit quick and sketchy, but I like it anyway.

HOWEVER! If either of you would like to do more I'd be more than happy to give you some stuff. But only do it if you want to and have the time, I don't want to force you guys. Thankfully the writers don't have the problem, I can force them to do whatever the hell I want! *evil laugh*

Just spend a couple hours on /co/ doing sketchswap stuff with other.. "drawfags".
A couple of mine were posted up.

Was pretty cool.

Here's a couple of the more appropriate ones I did.
Not that I did anything terribly inappropriate.
Then again, it's 4chan, so whatever.

There's a lot of good stuff that I didn't save or post to the thread. Same for everyone else I guess.
I drew a lot of stuff, all of which was awesome. Sadly, I only secured four of my own.
Ah well.


Aaaand.. now I'm bored and my hand hurts. So I'm gonna do something else.

I noticed I haven't been doing too many studies or anything with any kind of a model or a reference picture lately... I should pick that up again sometime. I remember when it used to be all I ever did. I suppose it has payed off, though. But drawing from your head is more fun.

Oh, in case you want to see some stuff that isn't on my blog (at least yet), here's some.

I should be studying chemistry but I decided to make some... interesting self portraits instead. ;D

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/selfportrait-2.jpg)
Did this right after I got home. 20 minutes.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/selfportrait2-1.jpg)
After changing clothes and stuff. 1 hour.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/selfportraitman-2.jpg)
Me... as a man! ;D

There you are Gauph.

Draw a dragon for these people while I hide.

I can't really draw stuff I haven't already drawn before without doing a lot of study. It's wicked lame.
Like I can sit there and play video games and see Samus a billion times but I can't draw her from memory.  :(
You're the hot shot dino/reptile man. You have a much better chance of nailing it than me.

A lot of free time on your hands, Gau?
Always.
But really, these sketches take no time at all to do. They just fly out. Bam bam bam.
This would help explain why I mostly get garbage and penises back.
Some really detailed gay porn though.


Disturbingly really detailed.


Still, it's fun as hell. You guys should try it.

I will color and finalize everything one day. Right now, to put it simply, I just don't feel like it. The project took a long time to do, and I have issues committing myself to these things for long stretches.
Just still used to doing quick doodles and stuff I guess.
Still, this thing was a beast and I got further than I ever did on anything else.

Thanks for your support up to this point, guys. It's not entirely over yet, but you deserve to finally see the blasted thing.  :D

I feel rather disappointed about all this.
Let me make it up to you by starting the whole thing over.


Wow, I was joking but that actually gave me a headache. I'm going to get some water.

Glad you guys enjoy it as it is so far.  :D

How long has that taken, Gauphastus?  I am having trouble recognizing some of the people.  Maybe I wasn't here long enough to be able to.

I did a few characters each day because I was having a bit of back pain and stuff. Minor work-related injuries coming back on me.
So then I started taking breaks. It got a little bad.
Tried diving back in, but I couldn't. I really wanted to move on and do other silly things. Working on this project cost me a bit of time through the day because of my slowness.

So yeah, maybe a couple of weeks in all, few hours a night.

Here's about where it all began, in the Off-topic topic --
http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=7909.msg501379#msg501379
Drew a silly picture with my General Atmund and Yuu, based on a post he'd made.

Then Daxx had to open his yap.  :P
http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=7909.msg501554#msg501554


Then it went on from there.
Good times, yo.

I think the Naucean is the one picking the fight. Your Kratair just looks rather annoyed by it.

It also took me a while to realize that the guy peeking out of the shed is Alwayswatching.

That is correct.

Werechicken as a completely normal chicken.
This I command.

EDIT:
Not to distract from the big event here, but there are other things going on in the world.

Like such as..

You tied Brian up?

Could he slip out of that if he tried? Perhaps a jar would have worked better.

I love the concept of it though.

Hey I'm looking for another artist this time around. I'll say that I need someone with some serious talent or someone I've worked with before (all two of you). The picture is going to include a fairly detailed depiction of the human face as well as the body. Much of the background is of a destroyed landscape. This is another Superpower RP drawing, so you know. I think the picture will be in black and white with maybe a splash of a single color for effect, though this could change.

If you are interested please PM me. Thanks for your time! :)

This is not my best.  Plus, someone asked for a crappy drawing...

I drew a dream that I had. It was about a city inside a huge steep-edged hole. The architecture was 19th century London type but it had these weird things on some buildings as well. There were buildings carved into the sides of the hole too.

Also, I remember that the city caused a lot of pollution that plunged the world into eternal night. (Lol, dreams.)

Political intrigue. Espionage. Assassination. Awesome fights. Philosophical differences.
Think Recess or Fillmore except like... hardcore. lolrhyme
It's hard to articulate because it's all in my head right now.

Quote from: The New Superpower RP: Part II
Cain stepped in through the broken pane, he reached down and picked Jeanette up by her violet jacket.
Quote from: The New Superpower RP: Part II
"And so you know, if you see a woman in a violet jacket I'd advise that you run... she's the worst of them all."
Quote from: The New Superpower RP: Part II
Jeanette stood at the front doors of the HQ and frowned; she was picking at a small burn mark in her violet jacket with dismay.
Quote from: The New Superpower RP: Part II
With a high pitched laugh Jeanette reached into one of the pockets of her purple jacket and pulled out a small compact.
Quote from: The New Superpower RP: Part II
She was wearing one of her usual purple getups and had a scowl plastered across her face.

The eyes were an afterthought. Since she was made in a lab who knows what sort of crazy stuff was going on. Plus I needed something to make her stand out a little more.

Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: Yokto on January 13, 2009, 04:23:48 pm
She is a bit stocky but i attribute that to the drawing style more then anything else. (Just the fact the her head is so big should be a dead giveaway :P)

The proportions are not that far off form a real human. Just compare it with a real picture of a real human and you will see.

Post by: Skyward on January 13, 2009, 04:46:23 pm
*Steals veraal's criticism pants*
*deep breath*

Me thinks...
the legs are too thick in contrast to the arms
the upper leg seems a little short too, not enough distance from waist to knee in my opinion.
also her left foots seems off. like her foot is going in on an angle, but her shoe looks 2D


over all though, everything else looks fine, the head size is attributed to the drawing style, if you touch up a little more, and smooth out the rough edges (not litterally :P), i think it will flow nicely.
i don't know if it would be too difficult, I'm no artiste!

Very interesting creatures. I hope you keep going at these. Just as a tip: Practising to draw some real life animals might give you some new ideas. And you also might learn new poses and such. I also just happened to notice most of the monsters are in a side view. Maybe you could try drawing some looking towards the viewer, for some variation and for the practise. Having more of a front view can be more dramatic, too.

Thank you! I look at animals for inspiration, but I rarely draw them; I'll have to keep that in mind...and they're all in side view because I was drawing them all on a single page so I could see them grouped together, but I DO usually draw them from the side anyway...I'll definitely have to try drawing them from different angles  :)
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: gec05 on January 20, 2009, 12:01:35 pm
Challenge yourself to draw some really dramatic angles. Break up the body areas and have each of them in their own angle, but all in the same line of action.

(http://img131.imageshack.us/img131/734/24693738oz9.png)

Notice how body parts not only point up, down, left and right. In the 1/3 view they also point towards and away from the camera.

Drew these over the last couple of days.

Yeah, operaghost. Just try your damndest. Best thing you can do for yourself is to draw for at least a half hour every single day, even if you don't get much done.
When you try to break into more dynamic art, at first you will probably fail. A lot. But don't be afraid of that.
Don't ever give up on the plan; work at it until you get exactly what you had in your head on that paper.
Even in your failures you get another step towards doing it right.

It's pretty fun like that.  :)

It's pretty fun like that.  :)

alright, thanks!

and Gec, the proportions look a lot better...my ONLY comment (and I know I can't draw people worth anything myself, so I apologize) is that the right leg looks like it should be just a tad longer...I dunno if anyone else knows what I mean, but I just feel like it should come down further in the picture

also, I was looking at this big picture I drew, and I realized there were actually some pretty decent drawings in it (I dunno how I managed it)...this wasn't intentional, but a lot of them are from different perspectives/poses from what I usually draw...I like how they came out

Does having a quality tablet really matter? What differences would a cheap one have?
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: Gauphastus on January 21, 2009, 08:11:55 pm
They have lower numbers in the specs usually. Less levels of pressure sensitivity, less features, extra buttons, or whatever.
The pens are all the same though, I think.

But yeah, they're cheap for a reason. You've gotta consider the lifespan too.
Cheaper parts may mean a short life for your tablet. But really, if you're only paying 80 bucks for one, it's not terribly difficult to replace.

I'd definitely go Wacom though. When I was doing my research before I bought mine, it was what everyone recommended. I must have read through like fifty different forums for user opinions.
I was also considering springing huge for the Cintiq 21ux. But that was back then when I didn't know what the best option was.
I don't regret getting the one I got, even for 400 bucks.
The pen's eraser tip died though.

When I get my credit card, I'm replacing it.  8)

It can... But not exactly top end stuff. This is something that can play things like Left 4 Dead but it's gonna crash if you try and run Crysis on it. It's a dual-core with an okay graphics card and plenty of RAM, so it can run anything you want, for the most part, but stay away from the real intensive stuff.

Personally, I don't install games on it, though. This is my work computer. My desktop recently got a case of the stupid virus, however, so I've converted it to entirely serve as a gaming platform. It's a high-power dual core with a GForce 8800 so it's able to run anything without a problem.

Make sure you play around with the tablet settings. It comes with this cursor accelerator that kinda throws you off. I also assigned one of the tablet buttons as Ctrl-Z for a quick undo. Helpful if you're going to make a lot of mistakes on strokes.
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: MetallicDragon on January 27, 2009, 12:41:32 pm
I think the cursor accelerator is only for mouse mode, or at least mine doesn't have it. Every spot on the tablet is a spot on the screen. It also came with a million little programs that run in the background, which are kind of annoying.

Just little things that are part of vista I think, like handwriting recognition and some gesture thing. After I installed the drivers from the CD there was a little handwriting recognition thing that would sit on the side of the screen (which I disabled) and some other thing that sat in the taskbar. Also, doesn't painter cost a few hundred dollars? I was just going to use GIMP.

Is it easy to use? It seems it would be difficult looking at the screen but drawing somewhere else. You can either not look at what your drawing and see the pen and your hand or see your drawing but not the pen or your hand...

Post by: gec05 on January 29, 2009, 02:17:23 pm
I've said this before. It will take some getting used to. You just need to get enough experience with it to get results.

Just remember you'll only draw as good as you draw on paper.

the inking is kind of lumpy, probably because I was zoomed in so far. But, I gotta say, a pressure-sensitive tablet is a lot of fun to use.

The latter option is the only way to go. And it's really not hard at all. It's like using a mouse, except with a pen. Do you look at your mouse when you surf the internet? Didn't think so.
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: Gauphastus on January 30, 2009, 02:40:19 am
No bull, it only took me around an hour to fully get used to using the tablet.
It was tricky at first. Absolutely.
But you really do get over it.

Part of the problem was that I was so used to using the mouse.
Did I look back though?

Heeeeell no I didn't.


So you will purchase yourself a tablet and you will enjoy it.
This I command.
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: MetallicDragon on January 30, 2009, 07:42:20 am
A great thing about the tablet is that if you mess up a line, you can simply undo and try it again and again until that line is perfect. That means that even if your coordination between the pen and the screen is a little off, you can keep trying until it is right.

It's nice to use it for surfing sometimes. I usually use the mouse because I have limited desktop space. Scrolling is pretty fun with it.

Perspective is hard to do until you can really understand it. I try to imagine it in 3-d, then draw a "skeleton" of the 3-d figure, and then draw the figure around that.

These are old guys I used to draw.
The older versions are those tiny doodles in the middle, drawn badly (on purpose) from memory. I never had a name for the guy on the left for some reason, but the guy on the right is a superhero I made up called Meltman.
It's odd that I don't remember him actually melting anything.
He had a sidekick named Oily. Oily was the same sort of design except with no headfins or cape, and with an O on his chest.
Also, covered in oil. He usually ended up causing huge fires all over the bad guy's place.

Seriously, I haven't drawn Meltman since I was like seven; the guy on the left appeared somewhere in middle school I think, around the time where I'd draw all over my homework paper instead of actually doing my homework.
I have like four binders of old drawings. And I mean old.

I'm gonna go look at that stuff. If I remember right, 90% of it is just bat**** insane.

I'm actually somewhat happy with the way this came out, so I thought I'd post this to a wider audience.


(http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/hh153/Not_Inkling/doodles1-7-09005.jpg)

And here's the explanation.  This is a scene from a dream I had freshmen or sophomore year when I tried keeping a dream journal.  I was on this alien planet walking through these walkway tubes when the section in front of me gets ripped away by a giant mouth, to reveal this bad boy outside tearing up the place.  Then Master Chief shows up out of nowhere and launches this thing that looks like and abstract wiffle ball with bigger holes into the creature's gaping mouth.  As it closes its mouth its body begins to ripple, but that's all I remember.  The creature probably blew up.  I Guess I woke up or something.

So the creature is this giant purple scaly lizard thing, with either six or eight legs.  When it closes its mouth it looks more normal, like the head of a giant toad.

Operaghost said he'd draw a better version for me, but if anyone else feels like it, especially in a different pose, feel free.

Oh, and I just noticed that the monster's tail looks exactly like the things that are supposed to be whisps of smoke.   Oh well.

you have to visualise how the dragon would look like if it was right in front of you.

you could just have some light in your room, hold you hand up and see how the shadows behave on your hand, use that for the thing you're  trying to draw.
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: Yannick on February 13, 2009, 10:03:51 am
Also; don't forget the colour of the lighting. TL-lights don't give the same colour then like a sunset. The hardness of the shadows also change depending on the lightsource. So you"ll have to think about: "Where is this beast? What's his shape? Colour of light? Hardness of light?

Welcome back! Not that I've ever actually met you, but I've heard of you a little, and your drawing skills look fantastic! I guess I can return this cheese grater I found in a garbage can labeled "a14gt's cheese grater" now... Sigh.
*Returns that cheese grater which apparently belongs to a14gt*

It grated that cheese like it was saving lives...*Sniff*

Besides the typically "lulz it teh furry" response, the lines are kind of scribbly and look like they could have been cleaned up a bit in a few places, and the lighting is a bit off in a few places, but overall it looks pretty good. The pose and proportions are solid.

Yeah, I'm curious why people always say that. What's wrong with furries?

The hands are bad because of two reasons:

1. They were hurried.
2. They were done without me carefully thinking about.

The neck is too thin because, initially, I did the head too small and resized it.

As for the scribbly look, yeah, my bad. I could have cleaned it up but I was too damn tired.

Yea I've always had problems with eyes, the first eye is easy but it's getting the second one to fit it that's difficult. I've never been able to draw the same thing twice....even my own characters, they always come out drastically different each time so getting eyes to fit is a challenge and it something I try to improve on. About the smoker...well I've really just started drawing smokers a week ago so I still need to practice that pose.

about the duel...I don't think I'd stand a chance with Gauph.

Post by: gec05 on February 18, 2009, 11:21:56 am
No, because it is the colors underneath that are affecting the outlines. Nothing is wrong with the outlines themselves, but how they are blending with the colors under them.
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: martyk on February 18, 2009, 11:23:17 am
The colors underneath can affect the outline?  I mean, I see what's happening, in that some of the outline is lighter than other parts, due to the coloring I suppose, but I didn't know it could do that.  What overlay setting are you using for the outline?

EDIT: Oh, I see now.  But it's weird that multiply would do that.  It works fine for me.
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!

Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: gec05 on February 18, 2009, 11:27:22 am
The wrong one is using multiply. The good one is using darken.

The reason being I need to blend the outlines this way is so I don't end up with this if it was on Normal.

The outlines are (or were). The coloring is painted.

If I kept the outlines as paths I wouldn't need to blend them at all. But I screwed up somewhere and the blank areas had white paths. Paths don't have blending options so I had to flatten it and clear the white so the color could show through.

All I'd suggest is maybe a little less forehead and a little less studly. Or at least... he looks studly to me right now. :P

I may just have to change the eyebrow expression is all.

Yeah, his forehead looks like it's as big as Kramer's.

EDIT: Fix No. 2

Still studly? I'll toy around with more expressions.

In my opinion, you should take away the nose tip at the bottom.

that tiny curve thing? try to take it out, and just have an edge, see if it looks better.
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: PatMan33 on February 19, 2009, 07:48:45 am
That may be a good suggestion actually because the other drawing you did of Gerald had the very same nose and it seems doubtful that they'd have the same type. But I really like the nose...

So my one-week vacation just started and now I've finally got time to draw all I want! I'm so happy happy happy happyyyyyyyyy

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/Sylarcommandosmall.jpg)
So this is Sylar from Heroes referenced from screencaps of the latest episode. I've got the episode on my computer, so I just stopped the film and took screencaps whereever I wanted, and I can tell you this is one of the best ideas I've had in my life. Oh man. I love Sylar. Just look at him. Squuueeeel

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/inspiredheadssmall.jpg)
Anyhow, these somewhat more messy ones were inspired the Syyyylaaar (glee!) stuff I did earlier. I think drawing Sylar was really useful in terms of learning to draw more realistic people. I think I'll be doing some more of that kind of stuff later on.

Here's what I've drawn today.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Ihmiset/housewilsonsmall.jpg)
Unlike usually I drew my drawing bigger than the original image, so as a result it's bound to have some mistakes. I tried to cleverly hide those with the lineart, though.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/walksmall.jpg)
I liked the colors in the House Wilson drawing, so I wanted to draw something with them. Couldn't think of anything other than... bushes. The guy there was a last minute addition to maybe make it less boring.

(http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh107/GD_/Muut%20harjoitukset/street-1.jpg)
I had some sort of an idea when I started making this, but forgot about it while I was perfecting the perspective, so I just ended up drawing some generic buildings. Then in the end when I covered all the linart with color, I screwed up the perspective, too. Boring.

The ears could be placed a bit closer to the head and the neck would quite benefit if it were a bit more straight and didn't curve towards the sides of the face.

Also, adding some muscles going from the shoulders to the neck would help the bottom part greatly.

I find that reading up on human bone and muscle structure really helps when drawing humans. :)

If you have windows, you go to your control panel and open your Fonts folder, then drag and drop the new font file (Not the notepad files that come in some of the downloads or anything else), once it has been extracted, into the Fonts folder and let it install. Then open up Word or whatever other program you want with variable fonts that isn't a messenger and go for it.

Grace Slick - Jefferson Airplane. HOT.

I drew her in paint.
And because I have suddenly become obsessed with her recently, I decided to also express my rights to be creepy, so I plopped me in too, my hair has grown at an inexplicable rate the last few weeks. I couldn't bother doing really detailed hair shadowing, so I just scribbled some crap to make it look... like hair.
(http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/3948/grace3.jpg)

Makes me sad to think that today, Miss Slick is really old.

Still, young-Grace is hawt.

EDIT: I think everyone should draw themselves in paint as realistically (or not) as possible, would be fun. No idea if I have suggested this before.

I'm pretty sure I know what that bump at the bottom of her neck is..

But in just an outline drawing, with no shading? Looks like a tumor.

Iiiiit's a tumor, it's a tumor, it's a tumor! Iiiiiit's a tumor, it's a tumor, it's a tumor! :D

Here's a picture of my character from Dark Heresy. The Gamesmaster was offering bonus XP if players illustrated their characters, so I crapped up a doodle in paint. I'm fairly happy with how it turned out considering the lack of real effort that went into it.

Well, the shoulders looks a little too... square. You might want to try rounding it out a bit. Also, his overcoat looks like it was just tacked on the guy with a couple of paper clips. In other words, it doesn't seam to conform to his body all that much and leaves him looking a bit one dimensional. You might also want to skew the facial features a little if it is slightly at an angle because right now his head looks like its on crooked.

I like "You don't need to be a master chef to know when food tastes like ****."  :D
It's okay if you criticize stuff, so long as the intent is genuinely to be helpful. Just consider whether or not the artist actually wanted or asked for your criticism in the first place, or you end up looking kind of douchey. But besides that, you may find your words completely wasted on an artist who simply isn't ready to receive them.
In any case, Andrew's criticism seemed reasonable enough and the artist didn't take issue with it. So why should anybody else?

The explosion and the car are awesome. Had I not looked closely at the background, I'd have even assume he'd drawn that. The person, however... Well, don't highlight unless you want to know the awful truth.

(It looks like a deformed Dwarf man. The head is huge, the leg is broken, and everything about them screams paper ragdoll. Except the face, oddly...)

Edit: Also, I appreciate Ryan's criticisms. He does a good job of pointing out what things could be improved. He's not hateful about it, he's honest. Besides, if you didn't want your images to be critiqued, you don't go putting them on the internet.

No worries, I need critique. Drawing people has never been my strong side, and that's why it looks off(or worse  :P). Sharp-eyed people have noticed that the leg is infact broken and not normal. Somehow it managed to snatch a "Standout" on digitalart.org but I have to say it feels undeserved. It's better to get real critique here, or else I wont improve. Time to look up those proportions of the human body guides!  ;D

PS: Just to check, does it look a little better if you notice her body is more than just the armour? It's kind of dark, too dark I suppose, but look closely. Or is it damaged beyound repair after all?

I've been off drawing for some time. I'm a bit bored so I'd like to once again ask some of you out there to draw me some crap for upgrading.
I'm gonna doodle a little.

Post by: Gauphastus on April 17, 2009, 07:39:07 pm
Oh, right. I meant to say sorry for blowing over your post without a word.  :P
But really, the best I can suggest for you is to start doing studies on anatomy. First get your form down, worry about colors later because that's just a whole new headache.
Just know this: even if you want to draw cartoony or even simply 'not totally realistic', these things still happen to be based in our reality. Whether you like it or not, at some point you will need to do life studies.
A lot of them.
It will help you immensely to learn how to properly construct shapes, and then more complex and advanced forms.

As for the work itself..
Lines don't necessarily mean detail. Don't add them if they don't add something substantial to the work. If they're distracting, they should go.
The lines on the entire piece need work too. I think you're drawing the mouse, right? Without the ability to apply pressure to strokes, it's much more difficult for you to add subtle lines. If you're wanting to improve, you can either go back to traditional tools, or you could get a pen tablet. Orrr... get really good with the mouse. But that's not really a skill you can easily transfer to other art mediums, whereas a pen, pencil, or brush can.
These tools are also made so that you can hold them steady and perform proper strokes. I think you'd be opening yourself up to a whole new stage in your drawing ability, which is very fun and exciting.


So basically, train more, do studies, upgrade your tools, completely discard any bad habits and if necessary, go back to basics.

Blur the lines on the ground.  As they are now, it's the area of emphasis, and you want that to be the iron root descendant.  Also, to that end, make them a less saturated color, so I suggest adding in some of its compliment (which I believe is magenta) on multiply mode.

Edit: To the first one you posted.

This is what I mean:

Color inside the lines. Also, when coloring small spaces, shrink the brush size. Use the bracket [ ] keys to quickly resize brushes.

So, I just got a tablet, so I was just doodling away, testing it out. I think it'll take a while to get used to, but I think I'm getting better at using it. Anyway, here is what I drew.

(http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l27/Oviraptor85/Other/Other%20Drawings/TabletsRus.png)

Yeah, It's pretty random, and I really did draw it in MSPaint. I something that can really use the power of the tablet (I have Paint Shop Pro 8, but there doesn't seem to be and tablet settings).

If paint shop can pick up pressure sensitivity when painting then you should be good for the most part. Try checking any brush options and see if there are any pressure options.

I second GIMP, it is basically a free photoshop (with fewer filter effects, but those are kind of pointless for drawing).

Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: martyk on June 04, 2009, 07:57:59 am
Simple, it's 3d tictactoe but each turn the board is cleared altough previous iterations still count.  In addition to being able to draw out a diagonal or whatever, you can also put the marker in the same spot 3 times in a row without interuption to win.  YAY TIME, THE 4TH DIMENSION!

5th dimension is where it would get crazy.
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: /lurk on June 04, 2009, 12:06:47 pm
You can abstract a fourth dimnsion without using time. In fact, you can abstract a many as you like, though it gets harder and harder figure out what's going on.

Of course, the problem with higer-dimensional tic-tac-toe is the same as with normal tic-tac-toe: with the optimum strategy you will never lose, and every game will end in stalemate. It just takes longer to find the optimum strategy, since there are more permutations of the board.
Title: Re: The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
Post by: Yokto on June 04, 2009, 12:13:10 pm
But that could he said about every game. Pretty much every game has some optimal solution. Though not every solution has been found yet. For regular Tic-Tac-Toe finding the optimal solutions is trivial. Add more dimensions and it gets harder to find the optimal solution which keeps it being fun.

Thanks, I appreciate it. I've been actually thinking about doing a tutorial on how to draw from reference, and maybe later from imagination if I'm feeling up for it. Actually, which one would you prefer? I'm just interested. Might not affect my decision at all.

Also, don't expect it to happen anytime soon, I've been thinking about this for a few months now and I haven't done much about it. But if people are for the idea, yeah, maybe I could swipe up something.
