The Look At DnD Embarrass Himself Thread
« on: July 05, 2011, 01:52:05 am »
Alright guys, as you know about my artwork, I do two things.

1. Doodle stuff

2. Fail miserably

But I enjoy doodling stuff, so I do it anyways, and I fail anyways.  But practice makes perfect, so hopefully doing almost nothing will at least make me semi-competent, which is the goal here.  Sometimes, though, I open up a new page in Flash and get stuck on what to draw.  An idea simply refuses to come to mind.  When I'm drawing without a purpose, drawing for the sake of drawing, my mind draws a blank.

So if you want to see some stuff botched in my horribly simplistic stylings and don't mind me screwing with you based upon the wording of your suggestion, then come on down.  The higher the odds of me failing miserably, the better!  It's really just practice for me.  Don't limit yourself to one thing at a time either.  And feel free to throw in spore stuff or things you actually WANT an image of too, just be sure to provide reference links, since I'm not familiar with any of the stuff that goes on over on that side of the boards.

To finish off this post, I'm gonna share some doodles when I was trying out doing everything with the hairline style... I don't recommend it.  Ah well.



And for the love of God guys, don't preach to me about practice tips or drawing books or whatever.  I've used a lot of those resources before and I've picked up from them all I ever will.  I simply can't learn that way.  Just make me draw stuff.  I call it failing, but I also call it progress.

Hm... how about that kid in my avatar?
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

Shouldn't this be in the Merry Doodles and Sketches thread?

This was a good chance for me to test shading with my hairline.  I think I'm better off filling the space with color and then using a darker shade for the hairline's ink, or just straight black.  It's tough because my tablet isn't responding to strokes that are too quick, or rather flash isn't accepting them, but either way it makes crosshatching nigh to impossible, and it's always my technique of choice on paper.

As you can see, these images clearly aren't merry, so no, this is not part of Merry Doodles and Sketches.

Also, this thread is about my experimentation and evolution as I get better and better with art, flash, and my tablet.  Plus, y'kno, the whole requests thing.  If others can have them then I can too, no matter how much skill I lack.

Also, she is NOT a whore.  How could you say such a thing?

You forgot to make it animated.

I thought about it, but the clapping seemed out of place with the whole 'I say good sir' thing.

I botched the shading on this one horribly.  Hairline has it's place, but the texture just doesn't fit anything organic, I guess.  I'll prolly just do the next few in solid colors to compare with.  Gotta remember to copy my inking to a new layer before I start adding color though.

Keep saying words, guys!

I say good sir, I think you must have forgotten to actually do me. In fact my post fit with the template I have been given by the others: Make a tangentially related comment on your thread or your pictures while not adding anything meaningful to the topic at hand.

Also your mother is a whore.

Now do me, you must! D:

Okay, Flisch, first of all, I will not do you.  Second of all, take a look at your avatar and then go ahead and wonder why I'm not going there.  I mean, what the hell is that thing?  Now, the Mulldrifter, at least then I could make a vague Magic reference, unrecognizable as the final drawing would be, but that photoshopped monstrosity?  Not a chance, mang.

Also, you automatically lose points for calling my mother a whore.  How could you.

For some reason this reminds me of the Fonz.



I liked this without any shading whatsoever, so I thought I'd upload it this way rather than screw with a good thing.

Also, when did this turn into the 'Come make DnD draw your avatar' thread?
