The Merry Doodles and Sketches Thread!
« 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.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

@ 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.

Well I guess I mean like shadows... is it as simple as using a black pencil and slowly making it darker as you go?

Basically, yeah. You draw harder as you want the shadow to get darker.

I do it like this:



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.

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

Uh, yeah that was my sister, and the stick figure, that was me.  :)
She's been drawing horses since she could hold a crayon.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

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.
