thats all for now!!!!!
i do take requests if you are interested, but it might take a while for me to draw it for you
it's like the first two were great but then something went wrong
thanks, i guess??
the first 3 are really new, most of the others are p. old
so i guess i improved??
Sorry to resurrect this thread, but I agree with canta. The art style leaves a lot to be desired and is just generally terrible. Please, please, please, just give up drawing.
Way to be a dick. People don't exactly start out as fucking Picasso, they grow and learn. Telling someone to "give up drawing" because they're not that great at it yet is fucking stupid. Plus, she mentioned that the first two drawing are her newest. She's improved a lot. She can definitely still improve but she shouldn't give up.
Polite sage. Sorry if you're not a girl, OP.
what's wrong with you? why would you tell someone to give up drawing?
fuck off and curl yourself up in a wooden tub until you die.
nevermore: you are definitely improving! keep at it!
but make sure to experiment, practice different poses, and try your best to use reference and ask for help from someone you feel is a bit more skilled than you are. Having someone redline your work can be really helpful.
also, this may sound bad
but sometimes tracing can be really helpful to get you used to the feeling of drawing something. I don't mean trace and post the work as 100 percent yours. I only mean to do it as practice. trace an image, then try to draw it without tracing.
That has helped me improve in the past when ive had difficulty just eyeing my reference image.
thanks you two!! i'm really trying to improve my work so thanks for the nice words and advice :)
i didnt even see that anons reply until today haha
Mmm, your artwork is nice (yeah, it has some flaws, but you're learning (and you will never stop to) ), so continue; I want to know how will be ended/look like your artsyle in future.
thank you!! I have several yn related projects on the go right now so I will continue to upload!!
out of the three i've just uploaded, the sabi one is the newest and i think it's the best too?? idk, opinions?
Yeah, I think it probably is. I really like the Monoko, too.
thank you!! i like that one too but i kinda screwed up on the hands haha /(\^8^)
Please keep posting these, they are awesome and they aren't simply chibi/cute versions of madot that are so common on these boards. I like your darker stuff, like your first and second drawings and the pixel art is great too. I love the flower one. Keep it up!
Thank you!! I don't really like drawing really girly-happy drawings that much ehe
But yeah, I'll keep uploading!
i saw the first drawing so i clicked it and oh my god
the smile drawing
your first two and the smile one are the best
the rest are kind of meh
you're doing fine there kiddo
First of all, her chest looks extremely flat because of the way you shaded it. Second of all, choose one direction that the light is coming from, and shade the darks in one direction. Don't be afraid to get significantly darker in some areas.
Thank you!! That's very helpful!
I'm really bad when it comes to pixeling lol
holy shit what improvement
im still trying to decipher if you mean this positively
but in the unlikely event that you do mean it positively then thank
kick outta what? im hella dumb and you need to explain your insult to me
maybe it's in reference to how much you're laughing with "ha" in that post? i don't get it either.
while i'm here, your art is really good btw!
oh, right!! that would make sense heh
and thank you!
also since im on my ipod i have to link
i forgot to post this in this thread [nervous laughter]
Burn your computer and cut off your hands
you are unnecessary
like even if you dont like their art how was that even called for
Merry Christmas to you too anon!!!!!!!!
This sounds really neat. I'm guessing it's going to be a comic?
Are you planning to post more of it? I'd like to see more.
at the moment its mostly just the occasional sketch and a few short stories, but once I can draw the characters more consistently im thinking of doing a comic!!
the girls in >>3153
are ocs from the same thing
UBOACHAN IT HAS BEEN A WHILE
I've been developing the story from >>3154
quite a lot
This is one of the first scenes from it, in which Abaddon and Grigori (who are fallen angels because tbh that made more sense) fall to earth and the Sheriff's daughter Mallory finds them. Laughs ensue.
I have more
hey its been a while since i posted here. i havent really done any yn related stuff in a while but, heres some of my recent stuff; i had to save them from my dA since i recently switched to a new laptop but anyway
1) a drawing of min yoongi/suga from bangtan that i did as a practice of capturing likeness
2) my oc cassandra and her colour palette, done as a reference for her profile
3) a self portrait
4) a more deveoped portrait of my oc abaddon (drawn in these pics >>3154>>3241>>3586
This thread is super interesting to read, considering it's 3, going on 4 years old. You can really see your progress in art (and growth as a person, subtly and physically- it's pretty evident you were underage but not anymore) as the posts get newer.
Cool shit OP, don't stop posting.
Yeah I was like 15 (I think??) when I started posting here. I will probably update as and when I can but most of my work is stuff I'm turning in for a grade atm haha
>>3835>the third picture
Is this you?
great art btw
Ah, no, that's not me! She's pretty though!
oh,sorry for asking :D
Just looked very similar to your portrait.
But I bet you look beautiful too ˘_^
The proportions are fantastic, I wish I could draw body shapes and poses well. Good job! And the rest of your art looks lovely as well
Ah, thank you so much!! And I literally have no idea how I managed it either haha
(pic is updated W.I.P)
Good work on his arm muscles and face!
IT'S SO GOOD
Thank you both so much!!
great job man
Tho the crotch should be bigger ;););)
But its amazing <3
I'll keep that in mind for the next time I draw JJBA fanart lol
Thank you so much tho
Tried my hand at pixelling again…made some Hot Topic Mafia Dads
(first attempt at pixelling was >>1943
These would make awesome band posters.
Thanks dude! I've been thinking about opening up commissions recently so reading something like this really boosted my confidence :)
Oh cool, let me know how it turns out!
I don't think your art is sufficient to be payed for yet. Also, the prices are hard to read.
People can decide for themselves whether or not they want to pay for ops art.
Yeah, I don't think my art is super great either, but I need the money and am in full-time education so I don't have the time necessary to work a formal job; that's part of the reason I priced them so cheaply (£5-15), since I wouldn't want people to pay a lot of money for mediocre work LOL
People can also express opinions on the value of what they see. This is, you know, a public board.
I didn't say that people couldn't express their opinions on my art, I was just explaining my situation to the previous poster so they know why I've opened commissions! I didn't intend for what I wrote to come across as malicious, I was actually agreeing with the prev. poster that my art isn't all that great.
NVM I just realised you were replying to someone else and not to me LOL………I'm an idiot
I wish you the best of luck. Is sport betting legal in your country? Then you might be interested in arbitrage betting. If you're good or have a program or something to fetch the odds for you you might make a solid $200 a month extra.>>4257
I've decided that they're not sufficient yet. For me at least.
Hey, that was a good Moody Blues song.
Betting is legal in my country, but since people in my immediate family have severe gambling/betting problems that they're trying to recover from, it's not really a viable option for me at the moment since I'd rather not exacerbate the problem! Thank you for the suggestion though!
Point out how the fruit was actually a psilocybin mushroom.
Amanitas cannot into psilocybin silly.
'sides, that's more because some folks got high on amanitas, it blew their minds, and they were like "oh, this *MUST* be the forbidden fruit! it only makes sense!"
Fact is, descriptions and original translations link it closer to an apple or pomegranate. Apple stems from a clever pun; in latin the word for apple and evil are the same with slightly different accent (mălum vs mālum). Pomegranates stem from being used in Roman and Greek myths as being associated with knowledge of the underworld / hell.
From my understanding, pomegranates were always associated with fertility, not the underworld. Where are you getting this from? Not being a dick or anything, genuinely curious.
The King James Version–at least my Norton critical study edition–only refers to it as a fruit. Doesn't describe it in any detail or hint that it's an apple.
Interested in knowing which translations describe it as such. Especially since it always seemed pretty clear that the snake + fruit was more a reference/plagiarized from Gilgamesh (in particular the serpant who steals the fruit of eternal l ife)
The text only describes it as a fruit. Specifically, the fruit of the tree of knowledge (עֵץ הַדַּעַת טוֹב וָרָע in Hebrew)
Which fruit exactly it was… imo, it's metaphorical and thusly does not exist. Most Western branches of Christianity portray it as an apple, again most likely stemming from the "evil - apple" coincidence in Latin (the Latin word from apple was actually a Greek loanword). Catholicism further entrenches that notion, as their canon bible is the Vulgate, a Latin translation originating back in the 300s AD or so. Genesis 2:17 - "de ligno autem scientiae boni et mali ne comedas in quocumque enim die comederis ex eo morte morieris" "mali" in this case could be "bad" or "apple". Or maybe.. bad apple? ;3>>4325
Hades introduced Persephone to pomegranate in Greek mythology. This brought knowledge of pomegranates to the mortal realm, but because she had knowledge of fruit from the underworld, she was forced to spend time every year there as such knowledge was forbidden.http://www.theoi.com/Khthonios/Persephone.html
All that stuff about pomegranates as a symbol of female fertility as well as death/the underworld are things I've already found and am exploring in my work. I the same with the Biblical ambiguities as to what the "fruit" actually is; it is something borne from a tree, rather than a vine, a bush, or within the earth…..
Anyway, could you stop debating theology on my art thread lmao….I'm just keeping it as a place where I can chronicle all of my art work for the time being…Thanks for the renewed interest, I guess?
Looks like that study is coming up nicely!
Conrado (>>4378) using his stand Soft Parade (a slime-like suit that makes solid objects permeable) at work, and at home (to mess with Viola).
In case you were wondering, Bad Seed (>>4330)is Viola's stand.
I started a blog for the Limonatis if you want to know more about them. https://sevizialimonatis.tumblr.com/
Image 1: Quick sketch of my OCs Marigold "Mara" Milton (black hair) and Elspeth "Elsie" Corvus (blonde hair). They're girlfriends and they attend Catholic school and hunt demons with their friends Johnny Rowe and Elian St Martine.
Mara is half-Thai, has 3 older brothers, and used to train in ballet.
Elsie was raised by her older sister (who is actually her mom), is narcoleptic, and is the captain of the field hockey team.
Image 2: Johnny and Elian, the other half of Mara and Elsie's team.
Johnny is both the youngest (16, 4 months younger than Mara) and the tallest of the group. He's mixed race (black & latinx) and he lives with his grandmother Nancy. His prized possession is a leather jacket that used to belong to his grandfather, he wields a switchblade, and his hair is dreadlocked on top & tied back but shaved on the sides (it's been a while since he last had a haircut tho so it's growing out a little bit). He and Mara are childhood friends and she mothers the hell out of him. Also his parents work as a travel journalist (mom) and photographer (dad) so they're abroad a lot, hence why he lives with Nancy.
Elian is genderfluid (typically "they/their" pronouns) and the Oldest™ of the group. They're a senior and they work as a DJ on weekends. They really like theatrical makeup. They're also bilingual, since their mother is Dutch, and they know sign language also.
This thread is a good example of how you shouldn't give up drawing… starts out kinda shaky and then improves a lot!
Good job op and keep going!
Thank you!! I started this thread 4/5 years ago when I was doing my first year of GCSE art…since then, I've gotten 2 GCSEs in art, an A-Level, and am currently on a foundation-level course, aiming to attend an art university and get a degree in fashion design and communication! I'm really glad I have a thread like this, that's been going for so long and can keep track of my development as an artist!
Pic is the finished version of >>4336
since that project deadline has passed and it's been graded LOL
More pose practice, more angle practice, more Viola ( >>4378
Does the girl with eyes on her body see separate images or does her brain form all the data into a single image like a deformed spider?
Only the three eyes on her face are functional, so her vision isn't too distorted or difficult to process. The rest of the eyes are nonfunctional and are more like growths; they only tend to be in the same place for a couple of days before they sink back into the skin and reappear somewhere else.
2 OCs from 2011/2012 that I decided to redesign, + a very pastel Mallory ( >>3230
) since I rarely draw her in comparison to my other Huxley Falls OCs, Cassidy & Abaddon…I need to draw Grigori again soon, it's been TOO LONG since I drew my awful sweatervest-loving boy
I redrew my first ever Abaddon!! >>3154
3 years makes a hell of a lot of difference :0c
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
