Trying to quit the whole mspaint look.

I found a picture of myself and decided to draw it.
Well, didn't realize the size of it, so I just did the hand part which looked really weird on the picture because i do something weird with my muscles or whatever and it looks really weird.

yeah.

It's pretty terrible, but it's my first try with real colouring to make something look "real".
I'm super tired and I always get the desire to draw at night, the only bad side to that is that I always just draw utter garbage most of the time.

I'll just practice and practice until I get it right.

You might not even notice it, but my poor attempt at highlighting just makes it seem as if the hand has been dipped in chalk.

Not really. I think it looks great.

As a side note, play around with colors more. Don't insist on black for shadows and use a bolder saturated dark hue instead.

You're rough around the edges but it's easy to see your potential.

Have a gander at this thing for some hot tips.

Aw gee, thanks guys.

I'll have to read through that thing, Gaup, seems like its got some good stuff in it.

EDIT:

Did this today.

Do you like Huey Lewis and the News?

I'm getting there.
I can't wait till christmas, I'm pretty sure I'll get a good sketch pencil thing so I can actually sketch stuff on paper and then scan it then make it look sweet in ps.

Gauph the color theory post is nice but is JPG and the Artifacts really show. It would be nice if it was in a lossless format with no artifacts. ;)

Gec, I am absolutely insulted by your picture.

Sam is clearly the bearer of the more attractive behind, and the implication that I have such low standards is appalling.

I did a few things myself. Basically forced myself to sit down and draw for a little bit, around an hour I think, just before going to bed.



Still got it, but I wasn't feeling it all that much. Might have just been tired.


Good man, omega. You should keep it up.
Even silly stuff like that starts to get really good after you do it a few dozen times.

Why is it so important to have a set style anyway?

If you can draw flexibly enough that you don't have a style, why is that bad?

Or is it just to have a unique style that is your own without accidentally copying any artists work you may have seen lately?

Because I can tell if something was drawn by Gauph the moment I see it.  Or something by Gec, or Hydro, or GD, or any number of other skilled artists I follow.  My art however is all over the map.
