This ones nice, you should do more with restricted palettes.
Thank you! I really like doing the palette challenges. I actually have some more from the same day as that one, but I never posted them since I was experimenting with art styles and didn't like the way they turned out as much as I liked that one.
i like the second one
Drew a fullbody reference for an OC of mine>>4524
Thanks anon :)
Did some more of this >>4449
, this time featuring my oc Grigori! It's been a long time since I drew him.
He looks good in glasses.
Really like your work in the Castlevania posts >>4452
Quick sketchy doodle, a redraw of >>3586
of sorts…with added Grigori because I don't draw him much LOL>>4534
Thank you! I'm actually still really proud of those Castlevania drawings LOL
Quick & conceptual sketch for a redesign of an old OC, Layla! I wanted to make her design fit more closely to
1) my preferred aesthetic
2) her characterisation & backstory
That is seriously my favorite version of her that you have made. Also, the colours go nicer with each other than in some other images of her. I still like her simpler design and braids in >>2603
1) my outfit from today was pretty cute so I doodled Abbacchio wearing it.
2) Awkward prom picture of Crystal ( >>4531
) and her bf that I sketched as a goof for a friend and then ended up finishing
3) Old-ish doodle of me.
It's shit. Why does your friend draw niggers?
Want to explain why uboachan is suddenly full of dumbass 4channers who refuse to lurk?
Yeah i'm wondering why there's a sudden influx of frogs as well. At least the newfriends earlier this year weren't outright shitposters.
We should take this into /sugg/ by the way.
In my friend's defence, I'm actually the shit artist that drew him 😊
to be fair, I kind of agree with him on this. Your art kind of looks like what I would expect of somewhere like tumblr with this weird, uncanny valley effect where cartoonish characters are turned to semi-realistic portraits that do not fit the characters and look far too detached from the source. not trying to be a shitter (although i'm sure I'll be interpreted as such), just trying to offer some constructive criticism.
deleted my post because i intended to sage, but it still shows up on recent so ill just repost anyways
Nah, it's fine, I understand! I've found that I can churn out lineless coloured art (like the most recent two) much quicker than when lining and colouring, so if I need to fire off some quick coloured drawings I tend to do them lineless. I don't really like the way it looks either (definitely uncanny valley in the face), and I prefer my stuff with heavier lines, but sometimes you just need to do something fast LOL
I typically think using heavier lineart stops my work from becoming too semi-realistic unless I push for that effect, but I'm not 100% sure so it's nice to hear an outside opinion.
I like this new direction.
you should all either never draw again or kill yourselves
"all"…. it's just me, my dude. >>4820>>4828
Thank you both for your advice! I feel as though whenever I try to do something more stylised it always turns out…more garbage than the rest of my art, so I don't really like to stray much from semi-realism and kinda bland shading. I really should push myself out of my comfort zone more with stuff like that. I've tried to develop my own style a lot of times but nothing really sticks or looks good to me. Most of my style exercises/experiments are to do with fashion illustration stuff at the moment…I really like the way Walter Van Beirendonck does design illustrations but I always default to regular realistic anatomy with little detailing on the faces ;w;
If you have any more advice, or practice exercises I can do, that'd be great!
(Also I'm not American, but I guess you just meant like…western art styles in general.)
This one is good. It feels more dynamic than mot of these.
I've been mostly working on uni stuff and a few commissions but here's a quick redraw of sorts of one of my fav BNHA panels! As cool as he looks with his mask, I just really love drawing Stain with his mask off LOL>>4837
Saved it. This is very aesthetically pleasing for me. Could you post more of this?
Also your improvement is outstanding. I jealous of your ambition and attitude… The way you accept the critics the way you feel confident in yourself. I love you for this.please tell me how to be more like you and less like fragile hysteric piece of shit
hey man it's pretty obv you struggle alot w/ anxiety and depression and you don't like yourself v much (and that comes out in your art) but it's ok, everyone has problems, and i hope it will get better w/ time for you :)
Thank you! I don't have much from this sketchbook since it's at my parents house rn, so I had to try and salvage some pictures from my google drive LOL, sorry that they aren't the best quality!
I think my attitude to accepting criticism is kinda two-fold; I'm an art student so constructive criticism/critique is something that happens regularly and you start to see it as something to help improve your work, rather than attack to your ego or anything. Plus even though most of what I post here are the things I do for fun, not for a grade, it's still good to get an outside perspective on your work!! :) >>4884
Thank you for saying this LOL, it's really something I think I need to hear from time to time. Yeah, it's something I've struggled with for a long time and am still struggling with it now; I tend to stick to fanart and slice-of-life OC stuff because anything more original or with more room for abstraction tends to get dark fast LOL
Man. Your collages are beautiful. Saved all of them again.
Yes, I can agree about this college thing. When I've begun studying I started dividing good criticism from bad. As a result, I take criticism more calmly. If it's bad and useless: you can always ignore it, and if it's good than you can improve your work a lot.
But I really applaud you for being such a genuine and calm person. I still like your attitude very much! Have my respect and post more art here please. You'll overcome your anxiety sometime. I believe in you! I love you in a metaphysical and artistic way ofc
!pls draw my boy kakyoin sometime!!
Love the whole thread
Some collages from a while ago, plus a couple of doodles! I'm a big fan of Sally Face LOL>>4893
Thanks man! I tend to post a lot of art on my uni instagram (@sepulchre.fashion) or on my twitter but I'll try to post more here too LOL>>4901
Two of my goretober doodles - day one for prompts "eye trauma" and "barbed wire", an day 4 for prompts "puppet strings" and "wires">>4893
Doodled the best boy, an icon who DEFINITELY survived that punch to the chest, just like Bruno and Abbacchio did (:
Sorry if I'm a bit late but man!! Thank you for drawing my precious boy!!I legit cried when he died btw
Also like those new collages a lot.
Thank you! They're from some of my previous projects and I found them buried in my Google drive LOL
also I love this thread! you made a LOT of progress from when you started. keep up the great work and never stop improving!
W.I.P, about 3 hours work so far, on and off. Most of what I've been doing lately is uni prep or embroidery so all my digital drawings are sketches and w.i.ps. Sometimes I post stuff on my twitter or my art instagram, I'll post links if anyone is interested >>4942
Thank you! This thread is almost 7 years of progress which is pretty wild LOL
