Default Inevident Scribblings




Hi all!
I thought I'd make a sketchbook to help myself improve a bit much more.
Those two are my latest; I've always drawn manga and whatnot and some people I've asked still think it shows so I'm uncertain. In any event, I'm aiming for a bit more of a western style in the coming sketches, simply because I feel like I should be able to do something other than manga and failed realism ^_^

Requests are welcome, I just don't guarantee success just yet ;p
Cheers!

P.S. The sketches here are probably mostly women. This is because, well, they're the most fun to draw X)

buttocks :3
very nice style!!
the only thing that strikes me odd is the girl's hips in the first sketch. Much props for making them curvaceous and sexy, but I think the place where her left (our left) hip and thigh meet could be slightly higher or something. To be sure I looked at my hips in the same pose and although I do have intense love-handles...they don't extend that far down.

or I could just be ridiculously out of proportion

I love the outfit, keep those sketches coming!

Haha, thanks a lot ^_^
You're right, her hip does seem to protrude her thigh a bit, eh? Guess you're not out of proportion then ;d
Well, I'm still getting adjusted to the style (I only started with it a few days ago) so you should expect plenty of sketches, some worse and some better ^-^

Cheers!

Nice start to a sb, I see a lot of potential. your figures are generally well proportioned, and they have a nice rythm to them.

Some things that may or may not help you - not necessarily things that are "wrong" - in your sketches:

- pay attention to feet and how they are planted on the ground. The angle that heel-to-toe makes in relation to the leg is an important indicator of the ground plane.

- most of her clothes fall nicely on her body, but there are certain things that you can do to explain the form under the clothes better. For exampler in the back view of your character, if you had the drawn the wraparound the clothes make on her body like this --> )( <--- *you gotta look at it sideways though* it might give more indication as to which direction her torso and pelvis are going.

- When drawing the face, keep an idea of the center line down the face, so the features line up correctly and don't give a feeling of over-protrusion or underbites etc. Some may be attributed to the desing of the character, but in those cases it needs to be obvious, and unquestionable.

This might seem like alot, but really its just becasue I suck at being straight to the point. I'll take a shot though; Great start, lots of potential, keep on posting!

Thanks a lot for your comment, 's helpful! ^_^
I'll be sure to keep posting and here's proof ;D

Android 18 (because it's nostalgic to draw android 18)

*-- Eh, something went wrong here, perspective (and thus proportion)


And to those unfamiliar with the two, Rikku and Paine from FFX-2

wow, these are really good, main crit:

watch the placement of the neck... or maybe the head is a little out of proportion on the newest one... then what Jigo said... youre definitely getting good though.

Thanks darkferret
Placement of the neck.. I guess I'd better hit Loomis for that one, eh?



Rebel soldier person
I might update a few more times today, or I mightn't, kinda depends on what life has in store for me today ^_^

Cheers!

Note: This is the first guy I've drawn in forever >.> so any weird things about it, please do tell, I need to shape up

P.S.
Is his head huge, or is that just me?

P.P.S.

A small compilation with lame-ass lines by yours truly.

I don't think I'm good enough to crit you. You have a style, if you're not satisfied with it try something different. When I got sick of Manga (it doesn't show in my work, but I did) I basically began a slow journey of art-enlightenment, and a lot of it happened this summer when I met people who were walking down the same path in a different direction than me, and made me see things in ways I didn't before. There's a lot of really cool, gritty American art out there that influenced me too; Thomas Hart Benton is a great artist to study if you're interested in trying out the West. manga-style is like pokemon; when your mom and your dentist and the whole fricking world got into it, it wasn't cool anymore...

Awesome stuff... keep it coming! I'm seeing a little Campbell influence in the way you've drawn your women. Yes? No? Maybe?

Haha, indeed zaki

gold-tangerine: I agree, sortof, 'cept that I believe that with manga it has become more difficult to stand out of the crowd, to have a particular style within the manga genre. With fanart, the styles often range from scribbly to very detailed, but I love the Magna Carta style, for instance

and again, thanks for commenting

I don't know how to describe it exactly, but that style that you draw faces in is really great.

Haha, thanks a bunch
I'm still trying to get a consistent look in the 'whole picture', if you know what I mean.


I'm posting this because this is what I've been working on; it's not for any particular purpose other than getting myself better renders, so I guess it counts as a sketch, right?

Cheers!

--edit--
I wanted to see what the new style would look like colored.
This is a bit of a hasty job, I bet it can look nicer - As you can see, I haven't colored her hair yet either. Laziness kicked in, but it looks kinda cool this way, too.

Eh, she failed. Still, methinks it's a nice attempt, 'cause I've never painted the way I have this time I used erq's tutorial to guide me through this - to me - new method.
I hope you like it anyway (the chin is messed up and her brow is too long)

jeez...i need to spend some time drawing over break...this is pretty good, give it a few more shots and adapt erq's method to fit you a little more and you'll be set.

that render is great. seems like you have a great eye for the digital painting stuff, but you seem you have some weakness in anatomy.

if you're using an andrew loomis book then you'll be fine i think. that book has some great tricks for drawing faces. if you like the more muscles figures try hogarth too

For lack of a better term, "cute" (I mean that in a good way). Convincing style though. Looks like Felicia from Darkstalkers.

Thank you~

I really love your mix with Western and manga styles. ^_^ There's not much I can say other than what jigokuen said about using a central line for the face and be careful about making the girth of necks for girls too small. And your picture in post #13 looks quite nice. I'm not sure If you wanted that rough/impressionist feel to it, but it'd work out quite nicely when you work the paint stroke for the highlights(?) into her hair.

Keep up the good work. Cheers.
