Ideas: The "Anthro" Sporepedia
« on: January 18, 2010, 01:26:47 pm »
Anybody know about the Ginjika Pokedex on DeviantArt? Well, this is the same concept, only with our creatures. I'm drawing a Pentekonterus one as I type. anyway, the purpose is to have a gallery of... well, people in outfits that represent our RP creatures. Hope to see your submissions soon!

WTF.

Like, seriously, WTF? Gijinka? You actually thought that people here would like that art? What were you thinking?

Not a chance.

...Really, Gijinka?! I mean, sure, *BehindtG likes it, but she's Finnish, and those who hail from Finland can do whatever they want.

It's not a joke, though they do seem to be a little harsh. I find nothing wrong with the concept. A little eccentric, yes, but what new idea isn't?

And you guys, stop making it sound like he just proposed Spore hentai. It's not that bad an idea. (The Ginjika creatures, that is, not the Spore hentai)

What my problem is is that Gijinka can only be pulled off by a very good artist. There is no way that me or UFO King are posting Gijinka, because that would just embarrass us. And I am very afraid that Dr.Octagonapus will post a Gijinka drawing. His art is nowhere near good enough for Gijinka. Neither is mine. If I tried drawing that...no.

No, I'm pretty sure it won't.

I won't be partaking in this, if you actually decide to go through with it.

Maybe all the old veterans are gone now, but back in the old days we were pretty anti-furry. It has been this long and have kept it that way for years.

But I still think we need to keep it that way. I know it's something some people are passionate about, but I would totally disown everything we made this place to be if you guys took that direction. This isn't about my narrow hatred of an eccentric art style, it's about originality.

I hardly consider anthro to be good creature design.

I'm with OmegaTripod on this one.  While I have nothing against the art style and in fact find some personifications of certain things to be an interesting concept, I severley doubt that Octagonapus can pull off anything decent, though I would not mind being proven wrong on this point.

Define what you mean by "Just an interpretation".  I find your statement somewhat confusing.

Oh, yeah, definetly.  I too hate overly human looking creatures.  I just think it's interesting to think about what they might look like if they were human.

So the basic idea is to extrapolate the creature's personality and culture onto a person? Or are we doing some unholy spawn of Homo sapiens and said creature?

I think they are supposed to be normal humans wearing accessories that personify a certain creature.

To perhaps take that further, instead of drawing anorexic adolescent emo kids wearing this stuff, why not draw a muscular warrior man wearing a Torpal costume, or Donald Trump wearing a Sombreron hat.

Well, that's some decent stuff there, especially Yuu's. And...wait...

Oh god no. Octagonapus posted. It makes me literally cringe.
 
1. The coloring sucks. First off, you used colored pencils (which is not exactly improving your reputation because it is used in an inappropriate context), and secondly, the direction that you colored in has no rhyme or reason. Thirdly, the outline AND color thickness is inconsistent. Fourthly, you couldn't even stay inside the lines.
2. The proportions suck. It looks just...I mean...that's not human in shape. It's a deformed midget. No offense, but...geez, kid, who did you take art lessons from, Rob Liefeld?
3. It looks unprofessional. You didn't clean it up, and the lines are not smooth. The coloring is not smooth. The letters off to the side don't exactly look good and aren't even colored in. I can even see the edge of the paper that you drew on.
4. It looks like a sixth or seventh-grader drew it. Oh, wait a second...


And of course, I am fully aware of the hypocrisy. I know my previous art has sucked. And some of it has REALLY sucked. That's why I haven't posted anything I've drawn too recently; I'm going to wait until I don't hurt my own eyes anymore. My art level is not high enough. I will not rest until I have mastered several professional art lessons and possess a graphics tablet and Photoshop.
Let's see if I can scrounge up a good SFW link that illustrates my point...
Here we are!
I KNOW that it's a furry webcomic, but what would you personally rather I link to? A stick figure-style D&D webcomic that's rated the web equivalent of PG-frickin'-13, contains violence, sex, alcohol, slavery, horribly corny puns, and still expects us to take it seriously by featuring what it passes off as drama, romance and @#$%ing fanservice? With stick figures?!? Or how about yet another Penny Arcade rip-off that lost over half its fan base in 2005 by doing something monumentally stupid? No thank you, give me the somewhat-original PG-rated furry webcomic any day of the year, and twice on Squidmas.


I kind of got off track there...anyway, do you get my points?

You're being unfair.  Look at my two "first" pictures I made one here, of the Vykusi and Milika (though the Milika was posted much later, it was drawn at the same time, also Fiikkal a little later).  I also used color pencils for them.  Dr. O included much more consistent line direction than I did.  I just colored for the sake of showing what and where the colors were.  I had no shading at all, this does a little.  The angle is much more expressive than my simple profiles.  He draws ten times better than I did at that age, and he will obviously improve with time.  I also think that paper edges and whether or not the letters are colored in is irrelevant.  And then you go off on some weird tangent about furry comics and fanservice.

Now I can be equally as demeaning, calling your art inferior, but that's not how I like to give constructive criticism.

And I don't think Octagonapus was gloating about his art skills in the beginning either.

That's the same reason why I get scared of the storytelling and roleplaying section sometimes.

An Axis Powers Hetalia type comic or something of the space... civilization... aliens... whatever might be interesting.
