Title: ART!
Post by: PatMan33 on September 04, 2006, 09:39:12 am
Can you draw? Can you take pictures? Can you write music?

Whatever you can do, tell us about it. Show it to us! We want to see it!


Since the other thread "Any Artists Here?" is off topic and buried, I made a new one.


So post your stuff!



Here is the culmination of two hours standing on the same spot on the boardwalk this weekend.

That is the best one I got. (You will need to open in a new window)

I also got a really great time lapse-series of the whole sunrise.

Nice picture. Was that from your "Hurricane Party"?

Here is one of a mountain taken from a jet on my way to Anchorage, Alaska earlier this June:

Same trip, as we descended into the clouds, the sun began to set:

I have a lot of other pics like this, as well as lots of aviation pictures, but I'll start with these. :)

C14, I also said to show it.

Since you don't want to, I want you to remove those two posts from this topic. Otherwise I am reporting them.


Here, some of you have seen this one already, but I like it. Again, open it in a new window to see it in the proper size.

I saw a photo of these kids crying

Apparently, the lady who took the pic gave them suckers, then took them away to get a picture of them crying

The point was to show how a kid would react if he knew how bad the world was.

I don't get it, but whatever it's still art

Yeah, I drew it with pencil. It's called "The Splinter". It's essentially a giant jagged chunk of rock stuck between the Shadowfell (i.e. mirrored dark world type thing) and the Astral Sea (the realm of the gods).

Me and my friends have our own forum, and I've got a metagame rp thread that uses my irl friends who are on that said forum and I thought i'd just copy paste the most recent update here to contribute to ART!.

I think Veraal tried to achieve lighting from the rear. Could use more smoothing on shading though. The scribbled shadows could give off an undesired texture.
Title: Re: ART!
Post by: Veraal on April 29, 2009, 03:35:06 am

I'm not sure which way is the best way to illustrate shadows in photoshop, I guess I should just experiment more.

Title: Re: ART!
Post by: MetallicDragon on April 29, 2009, 08:35:23 am
For shadows: don't use the burn/dodge tools, they look like ****. If you have a tablet, find a darker color of what the shadows are on, and draw where the darkest shadows would be, then use the eyedropper tool to get a new "in-between" color and draw that between the dark and light spots, to make blended shadows.

If you don't have a tablet, I would suggest solid shadows, without trying to blend (at least for practice at first).

For where to actually put the shadows, that's harder and mostly just takes practice. Practice shading simple objects, like balls and cones etc to learn how shadows work, then work up from there. Look at other pictures in the same style you want and note how the shadows are drawn in them.

What program are you using, by the way?

And in any case, your current method looks terrible to put it bluntly. What kind of style are you going for? Blended shadows, solid shadows etc...

Those are very good, but the burn/dodge tools create a very distinct style that looks very generic, in my eyes. Perhaps it's just a matter of preference.

They have to be hand drawn (Tablet drawn might be ok.) and you can draw as many giraffes on one drawing as you like. No MSPaint or GIMP, the art work must look as natural as possible.

I think the eyes are okay, though a bit bordering on the limit.

The mouth seems a bit to big, but since her's smiling I guess it's okay.

Other than that, it's pretty okay. :)

Post by: dndfreak on January 21, 2010, 01:06:08 am
Not too shabby.  The mouth and chin could be a little lower down and the indent on the side of the face could easily stretch down as far as the middle of the ear (while remaining just as shallow).  Other than that, not too shabby.

(http://i648.photobucket.com/albums/uu207/XenaBabyGirl1138/DRASU.png)

There's a lot to say about this... So I'll just copy paste what I posted on DeviantART.

"Alas, old friend
Forgotten you have been not
Your consciousness still brushes mine
deep within
deep within

We'll remember that dream
we once held close
The one that shattered like glass
when held too tight.
We'll remember.
We'll remember.

Your grave lays within my mourning gaze
and within morning's blaze.
I'll always remember that dream
and the fear of waking up.
Of waking dawn.
Of waking dawn.

I've traveled long
I've traveled far,
All to find it was incomplete.
That fading dream that bound you and me,
now rests within my soul
A burden forever.
A burden forever.

Dear friend,
Our bond has not end.
A journey I took
All for that one look
Of soul bonding deem
before I awoke
All of that toll a dream.


Dear god, this brings back thousands of memories...

First of all...

Have you ever had a dream character?

Of course. They exist in every single dream.

Have you had a reoccurring dream character?

Possibly.

What about a dream character who remembers the dream it was in and has stories to tell.... Stories of what they did while you were awake?

Probably not... And it's starting to get creepy...

Now... What about a dream character who begged you to stay longer, and begged you not to wake up, as they didn't want to die or be left to the rest of the dream world?

No. You haven't.

And... What of a dream character who has appeared in over 23 dreams?

Maybe.

Here, my dear friends, is DRASU, a dream character from my early Digimon fangirlism.(Yes, laugh and point at the Digimon nerd)

She appeared once in one of my dreams, where i was on a "quest" for Guilmon. I found him, but she shoved me back, and just then, she was mortally wounded by the other Guilmon.

She's appeared ever since.


I dreamed of her just a while ago... She snagged me away from the action, where I had been on a killing rampage and everyone was trying to get me back. She hid me, and we talked, and she shared adventures of what had happened while I was gone, and how she had struggled to find me. She also told me not to be as reckless, as it may take toll in my later dreams.

Now for a bit of Backstory on this mysterious "Guilmon"...

DRASU is an android(as you can tell) made out of nanobots. She was originally made for working into technological networks and also serving as a body guard to the head of the company.

Imagine their distress when she took the form of a digimon.

So... She can do mostly whatever the hell she wants.

"Look! There's that girl! Get her!"

"Enemy values 23. Initializing code number 72849627462534524..."

"What?"

"Loading... Loading..."

*Arms turn into gun*

"Oh ****."
-Dream conversation(Enemy and DRASU)


So yes... She been protecting me and I've protected her... And she keeps invading my subconscious... Oh yes... And about dying...

ME: *Fear*

"OH MY GOD!"

*Tries to wake up*

DRASU: "Don't wake up... I don't want to die alone here."

ME: :shocked:...


DRASU: "Please... I don't want to die alone here while you go on with life... Please don't let me die alone..."

Dear god... She scared the **** out of me... And she's almost always just sitting there and watching me...."

...

Yeah....

Another one;

(http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z242/Hucklordofbuck/bottlemindre.jpg)

Wanted to try out painting the shading on something round that was hollow, so I drew this bottle by hand and then decided to scan it and give it some color. As allways the scanner butchered the shading though.

Title: Re: ART!
Post by: Huckbuck on April 04, 2010, 03:02:45 pm
Yea I know it's not round, it was very obvious after the scanning. Did seem quite round on paper though. I didn't paint by any type of reference, but I should probably have used something to just get the round shape right... Whatever, let's just say the glass manufacturer was drunk. :P

I would actually try to remove colors and do a pure black and white one (No shades of gray)

Just to test it out.
Title: Re: ART!
Post by: Great Distance on June 10, 2010, 03:15:22 pm
Well, you could try drawing with the same brush as the black outlines and hair, just with grey instead of black. Pick out the areas that are vaguely the same shade of grey and then... draw those with the same shade of gray! Try simplifying things a bit at first. Oh, and don't leave the face completely white unless you're going to use a very light grey for the shadows. You can try adding more shades of grey later on, and blending the different shades too, when you get more confident. Or whatever, when you feel like you should. But try making it simple first. Just to see how that works out.

Remember if you try more complicated shading, you'll probably end up having to shade the whole face to match the image as closely as possible. Otherwise it'll just look somewhat off. But with just two or three shades of gray, you should be able to keep it simple, so you won't have to work on the drawing all day long. Just don't try blending the shades because that'll add more shades, and like I said, you might have to try to replicate the image as accurately as possible just to make it look good. Well, I'm not saying blending is something you should never do when you're trying to keep things simple, but it'll probably help at first.

Oh, and it might be good if you don't try shading just some tiny specified areas on the face. If you see that same shade, or even vaguely the same shade somewhere else, you should probably put it there, too. (And as you may be able to figure out, the more different shades you use in those areas, the more different shades you'll have to use everywhere else. So the shading will have to keep getting just more and more complicated.)

Well, it's a great tutorial, but I don't see how helpful it is when you're drawing, I assume, greyscale drawings from reference. Well, I guess it'll make you understand what you see better, and the "Flatten and simplify" definitely applies here, too. But I always thought that tutorial was mostly about coloring stuff you made from imagination. It is a good one, though.

((Yes, yes, I know the picture's taken with my computer and it's very low quality ;_;. My camera's out of memory, and I'm missing the USB cord... So nothing can really be done at the moment...)) I tried my skill at sculpting today, using baking clay... The portal cake and Lamar the Headcrab are about one inch tall, while the Pyramid head with the scarf is about... eh, 3 inches tall. I actually put a lot of detail into him, including the stitching on his... tunic... thing. But, sadly, you can't see it in the picture. The portal cake is also very detailed... I used a tutorial I found on DeviantART to make it look fluffy and delicious. I actually spent at least an hour putting on all the little chocolate bits. O.o All in all, I think they turned out pretty well. Except PH's helmet. It looks rounded. And cruddy. Didn't spend too much time on that.

...

......

Hmm. Something tells me to name the PH Jerome. No idea why.

Oh, and I put on the scarf at last minute when I became frustrated with his shoulders and attaching the helmet.  ;D

I totally drew a couple of requests from people.

I like this one the most.
"A grenade walking towards Gabe Newell as a pinata."
(http://img137.imageshack.us/img137/1314/gabevsgrenade.png)

But I also like this one.
"Mechagodzilla."
(http://img230.imageshack.us/img230/5584/mecha.png)

I've got the rest up on my deviant art.
I don't really like shamelessly linking my deviantart profile, it makes me feel stuck up or something.

Maybe we should make a sticky with all of our deviant art profiles linked in that thread.

good idea?

Did a new request today from /v/.
"Gordon Freeman and Garrus fighting a Colossus from SotC"

That's what it is.
(http://img442.imageshack.us/img442/3826/garrusandgordonvscoloss.jpg)

I didn't know how to do a full blown combat scene look good because then Gordon and Garrus would probably just be tiny specks, so I just made it seem as bro as possible.
Title: Re: ART!
Post by: gec05 on December 01, 2010, 02:34:14 pm
I think you should take up painting Veraal. MSPaint can only go so far to make some thing like that look really epic. And you have the basics of coloring down. Learn some advanced lighting while you're at it.

There are a couple of art books that will help you teach yourself. And since you have a tablet, look into getting Corel Painter Essentials and you're all set.
Title: Re: ART!
Post by: Great Distance on December 01, 2010, 02:44:10 pm
Well, that guy in the background is supposed to be gigantic, right? If you used low perspective, like if you were watching the characters from ground level, you could include both Gordon and Garrus without having to draw them as tiny specks, and you might probably be able to include the whole Colossus, too. Perspective tricks like that are pretty difficult, though, so I understand why you wouldn't want to do that. I'm not sure I would even consider trying it with the skill level I have now.

What you have there looks good, too, though.

And I agree with Gec.
Title: Re: ART!
Post by: Veraal on December 01, 2010, 03:02:50 pm
Heh, I don't use mspaint.
I use ps cs5.

It's just the way I draw. For some reason I fell in love with zero aa drawings and stuck to it.

I think I have a corel cd lying around.

Never really bothered with tutorials about anything in my entire life.

Also I realized now that the fistbumping arms of both dudes look horrible, particularly garrus'.

Oh well.

That is amazing...

I did basically the same thing as Tesla just now, but I suddenly feel more hopeful about becoming a better artist.
Much as I like to think I've made some slight improvements in this area since my 'all hands look like slotted gloves' days,  there's always that nagging feeling that I've past that point where any attempt to really improve such a skill would work.
And I'm 19.
That is a preposterous feeling to have at 19, isn't it?
Seems like a preposterous feeling to have at any age, even.
Stories like this subdue that feeling.

Gec, thank you for posting this.

Maybe someday soon I'll actually feel good enough about my art skills to post something I've drawn on the forums...

Artists who open themselves up to learning are the ones that move ahead quickly. Take what you understand and agree with and use it to further yourself.

Do not argue about what your limits or habits are. You will move nowhere. Don't waste your time with it. Seek to understand! If you keep doing what you know now, you will keep getting the same results.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LaJ4AvMUyk

Ignore the fail walking at the end. Flash was hating me and wouldn't allow me to change the tween path. >_>;;

The basic story behind this is Luca Lombardi (the man speaking) has just recently joined the Assassin Brotherhood, but ever since, il Mentore (Ezio Auditore) has been ignoring him, as if he didn't exist. It has now become one of Luca's goals to get the Mentor to notice him and acknowledge his existence. But sadly, he's never been successful. And thus, an animation.

Give me your opinions, complaints, ideas, tips, whatever. I just want some feedback on my longest animation yet. >_>;;

Ignore the fail walking at the end. Flash was hating me and wouldn't allow me to change the tween path.

In times when flash flips the hell out (happens a lot), you just gotta frame-by-frame it.  Or break the movement up into a crapton of tweens if you're running at too high a framerate.

In any case, welcome back.  It's been ages.

The detail is exquisite on the turtle, its rider and the ground. However, the current dimensions present a problem: there is too much empty space on the left. This could readily be solved by discarding several pixel columns off the image's left side, but mostly there's just too much open field there.

Those three points on the middle of the shell are string elements, especially so in the case of the middle one. You might be able to make it better by ever so slightly increasing the creature's upward pitch.

Another thing here is that the wheels are not moving properly relative to the surface. That may have been your intention, but it might make the piece stronger if it were moving along the landscape using proper physics. Some leaves getting crumpled and suggested dirt on the tracks could help as well.

Lastly, the wheels are partially deformed, more so the left one. Reducing the level of artifacts would also aid in bringing out the full potential of those two objects. As it stand, they don't jive well with the overall image.

I rate the piece as follows...


Vision - 4.5

Originality - 3

Technique - 4

Impact - 4

Overall - 4

Dubble post!

So after I told gauph what we did today, he twisted my arms to post this on the boards. So if it makes your eyes bleed out, put the blame on him, not me. [/disclaimer]

Anyway, so we had colorisation class today. Essentially we took a black and white portrait and added colour to it to make it look like a real portrait.

I used House. (I made him look a bit older and a bit more sick intentionally.)

(http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c390/Flisch/Artwork/Ian_Kapischke_bung_PortraitHouse.jpg)

Based on this (http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c390/Flisch/houseportrait.jpg) drawing by the way.

Also, we did something similar a while back. We took a drawing of a landscape and turned it into both a sunny piece and a rainy/gloomy one.

So far it's two layers of cardboard and two/three layers of paper. Tomorrow I'm going to coat it in Gesso. Then I'll paint and seal it etc.
The upper hole is actually positioned in front of my left eye, so there's a usable amount of visibility there. I usually end up turning me head subconsciously though :P

So, technical drawing question here!

I've been working hard on getting real procedure into my drawings, sketching general forms first and using them as a framework to build off of to get proportions right. (The drawing class I took last year really helped, actually!) The thing I'm not clear on is how I move to the final step of cleaning it all up in digital drawing. I'm working with layers, but as nice as things look in the preliminary stages, they occasionally get all wonky when I actually try to do my nice clean lines on their own layer. (Proportions suddenly off, can't get the lines to match up with how good they looked the layer below, etc...)

Is it just a matter of practice, drawing and redrawing lines until I get the ones I want, or is there something I'm fundamentally misunderstanding in how to do this?
Title: Re: ART!
Post by: Gec on August 01, 2013, 03:51:57 pm
You're probably tracing over your sketch lines right?

Don't do that. Your sketch is a guide to an extent. But don't trace that line so meticulously. Your line should follow the flow of the sketch. Your inks should not follow the exact path of your sketches. That would be an impossibility since you sketch is made of several lines going in a similar direction. Get used to making fast, quick strokes. Don't think about tracing. Just think about making a line that follows a single, clean curve. If it doesn't look right, undo, and repeat. Keep doing this until you get a line your happy with. Ctrl+Z is your friend.
Title: Re: ART!

Indeed it is.

Thanks Gec!
Title: Re: ART!
Post by: Gec on August 01, 2013, 10:22:41 pm
Also, it's going to take some confidence, patience, and time but it comes eventually in a few years or so. Just keep at it and don't get frustrated. If you don't like how you're doing things or how you draw a line, do something different. Take a different approach. Experiment with how you thrust your hand, elbow, shoulder. How you hold a pen. Find out what works best. Just draw everyday and draw what's on your mind.

I don't really consider myself an artist but here's something I made on a whim.

I'm in an RPG game which I play with my friends over IRC called Rogue Trader, which uses the Warhammer 40,000 setting (If you don't know what that is think... Catholic Nazi Space Pirates and you're about half way there).

It was made in response to an event in the last session where some evil tech-priests who were trying to steal our ship started hijacking our comms and broadcasting this evil brain-melting whispering across the entire ship, making many of the crew go crazy.

(http://i.imgur.com/KkFaIj2.jpg)

Its hacked together in GIMP. The ear was some bit of ****ty clipart I found on Google images. I used filters/tools to decrease the amount of detail to make it look more poster like. The blood is a combination of various shades of red drawn on with the brush tool and a stock photo of dripping blood. The lightning bolts I just cut out from a poster for some band or event or something. The font I downloaded from a free font site. Finally I put the whole thing through an effect filter called "old photograph" or something like that which added the grain effect and washed out the colour a bit.

Another bit of cludged-together graphic design for my Rogue Trader game. This is a design for a regimental banner for the army the players are now basically in charge of.

(http://i.imgur.com/B0Rx9wh.png)

Translation:

Ranamanda Syndicate, 2nd Legion. (Ranamanda Magna is the name of the frontier world the Syndicate governs)

Von Kroyer is the name of the Rogue Trader dynasty the player characters are part of, Yoselim is a noble house which is also part of the Syndicate (They're actually one of the partners which tried to have us killed, but we took the head of their house hostage so now they're playing nice, keep your enemies close and all that).

"From Azure Skies"

The motto of the syndicate is "To Azure Skies" but as this is the banner of an army raised to invade other planets and bring them under our control 'from' seemed more fitting.

Post by: Great Distance on September 14, 2014, 03:22:51 am
You can, if you just have the time and patience and the right resources.

Sketch something you want to draw, find some reference pictures on the internet and complete your drawing with your newfound knowledge.

If at first you don't succeed, try and try again.

When you get your first really good drawing done that you can be truly proud of, it will propel you forward.
Knowing you have tried and gotten over all the pitfalls, you know you can do it again.

And gradually, ever so slowly, you start knowing how to avoid the pitfalls in the first place. And you don't have to try so hard anymore. You'll still have to try or else there will be no drawing. But you'll know what you're doing and have confidence to get over any obstacles, should they arise.

Also, life drawing is something I should emphasize, but when you're just starting out, that's kind of boring and unrewarding. So I'd suggest start with drawing something you think would be really awesome and then do everything you can to make it work. Seeing something awesome you thought come to life is... awesome. Especially if it took a lot of work to get there.

Painting is what I do nowadays, as much as I can really. About 2 years ago built up frustration regarding not achieving anything in my life made me redirect all of the time I spent playing video games towards painting instead. I do study still, but for the summer I am doing art full time and trying to make it make me money. Here's a painting I did last year:

My group of friends decided to do something of a weekly art jam. We all do whatever art we can towards a theme. One of my friends is making unity games, one of us is writing, and a few of us are drawing.

This is my entry for week #1, an emanation on this week's theme of "Human Waste".
