Post your work/progress.How's it been going lately?
>>124568809If you want to draw then go to /ic/, asshole.
In the middle of drawing this dwarf.>>124569325Die.
>>124569442Looking good anon
>>124568809It's weird when one gets a bit obsessed with a an idea and has to draw it. Not the only one am I?>>124569442Looks cool mate. Looks like you got a sketching style figured out. Still trying to figure out mine.
>>124569880I feel the same way anon, though admittedly I haven't been drawing much since real life's keeping me busy, I might post some sketches here later just for the heck of it
>>124569442I'm sorry your shit tier scribbles are good enough for the board meant for art. keep grinding those fundies and you'll graduate to /beg/ someday.
I drew a flirtatious, blind, monster thingy. I imagine her stalking you, standing in the darkness at the foot of your bed in the middle of the night, asking you if her like her hair.
I bought a table the other day. Where do I start? I want to draw porn
>>124569880If anything, that obsessiveness is a sign you'll get really far in art. Sticking to art when the going gets tough is one of the big hurdles to get over.
>>124570255find refs of how you want the fuck to occur, followed by refs of what you want fucked and what you want to do the fucking.Also anatomy and perspective are gonna be pretty big if you wanna solve problems in your specific case.
>>124570409Trace over porn and give girls an anime face, got it, thanks.
>>124570438pretty much. 's how a lot of artists get their fan bases.
Trying to work on my dumpster fire
Could someone give me background ideas to draw? I wanna practise and have some back up prompts for when im lazy
>>124572032Go to your favorite open-world video game, find a setting you like, snap a picture, draw that as reference.
>>124569934>>124570382I can only hope. I want to like, draw one thing for fun, then look at it and determine what fundamental study to do next. Problem is deciding what to work on when there is a thousand problems.Done on Procreate in like 10-15 minutes warmup.
>>124572302I know what you mean, I tried compulsively grinding fundies to get around that, now I'm having difficulty applying my practice to what I want to draw.
>>124572699Currently working on learning lips but yeah, thats how it is.
>>124571969It's a nice Dumpster FireI'm gonna throw a stick in and hope it keeps going.
>>124568809I took yesterday off. But I did this the day before
>>124570236Very cute. Makes me wanna draw macrabe.
>>124568809While I was in the middle of backing everything up, accidents happened and I ironically ended up losing 3+ years worth of unpublished sketchbooks and art files. I've been able to salvage about 10% of it from various DMs, e-mails, and uploads to /co/. This is for me 5 years from now when the accident eventually happens again.
>>124575342Damn dude. What were you backing up to that caused this?Also, I'm not overly familiar with your work, but I recognize you for those knight comics from Star Vs. Those were really entertaining. You have a good grip on character dynamics/interactions.
>>124570255Buy a chair, some paper and a pencil.
>>124575820I was moving everything from an HDD to an SSD after building a new computer and re-installing Windows 10. I dragged everything over, walked away, then came back later and saw that all my video files, music, art inspiration collection, my work art folder, and etc. all got backed up. I even looked inside the folders for most of them, but I just happened to stop at the very bottom few folders that were at the end of the alphabet ("Sketchbook"), so I didn't notice they didn't fully copy over. There was no error on-screen, so from my POV, it just looked like everything copied over. Then I was doing a deep format for the HDD because I had been using it for almost a decade and wanted to use it as a secondary back-up, but try to clean it up a bit since it's been slow as of recent. Then only halfway through the formatting process when I went back into the Sketchbook folder and saw 90% of files were missing did I realize it never copied over.Why it didn't copy over, I can't figure out. My only guess is that after I re-installed Windows, it fucked up all the security permissions because it changed EVERY file to "Read Only" and made it so I couldn't touch them. I had to manually change all security permissions for every folder, and I must've missed it or fucked it up for the Sketchbook folder, causing it to not drag over. It's been about a week of me trying to do hard drive recovery stuff and even sending it to a lab, so now I'll just have to get over and probably share my art online more instead of hording it for years.
>>124576012Do you also have a cloud backup? I keep everything I make both on a back-up Hard Drive and on Dropbox. It's a pain in the ass at first, but it's definitely reassuring to have a back-up for your back-up. Just in case there's volatile weather, burglary, etc.
>>124576163No, unfortunately the program I use (Storyboard Pro) saves things in elements similar to After Effects. So it's very easy for a file to balloon over time if you keep drawing on the same canvas. So it's one of those things I figured I would eventually put onto a private hosted server as a back-up, but kept putting it off due to laziness and since my old computer was quite slow, I didn't want to wait for 7 hours for 25GB of oversized files to transfer over. Now after it, I'm just start doing three back-up processes every month including external back-up and cloud back-up. About 70% of it were sketchbook files that I probably NEVER would've finished, and I managed to recover PNGs of the incredibly important art files I needed for future career-related things. But it just sucks that a lot of that stuff is lost and I can never look at some of those sketches since I never uploaded them anywhere.
>>124576334Well, it's a personal tragedy that can be chalked up as a learning experience. Those tend to be the most effective lessons. In fact, I think something similar happening to me is exactly why I'm willing to pay for Dropbox.
Took a break from reverse trap vixen. Figurę out how to draw Vivace.
>>124572071>Go to your favorite open-world video gameInstant failure, 8 hours spent playing games instead of drawing.
>>124571969Looks good anon, nice crisp lines
>>124574041Damn, I like this, pretty pro looking
>>124575342Fuck, how good are you now I wonder?
>>124577259Dang, you got a long way to go ànon
I've been practicing drawing curvaceous bodies, here's an elf of some kind I've been doodling.
>>124579465Pretty good anon, i wonder how you do with semi realistic faces
I haven't drawn in a month so now I don't remember how to color and ink
>>124579518Coloring's fine, your anatomy could use some work though
>>124579494Thanks! I don't usually make faces these simple, but I've been on a stint lately where I've fooling around with it, since it's easy to make something cute-ish.Here's a crude sketch of a barbarian I made earlier where I tried to make the face a little more defined but still keeping some of the "softness" I like to use. Not sure if it qualifies as semi-realistic but I didn't have many examples on this new computer!
>>124579518You should learn about depth, your drawing looks rather flat. You can do this through a variety of means, including lines and colours. Anatomy too, as the other anon said. Maybe try drawing less complicated figures? A superhero you like with a skintight costume is a good place to start.
>>124579260Thanks anon>pretty pro lookingYou know what they say an artist waits for inspiration. A professional wakes up and goes to work.
>>124576334nice dog>>124579518arms too short
Trying to learn how to color. Any recommended tutorials? Tried to start with ctrlpaint, but beyond that there's just so much I don't know where to start.>>124570438>>124570409>>124570451I mean, if it workks for Mikeymega it can work for me. Next time I wanna draw some dick sucking I'll just pop open a porn screencap and go to town.Joking aside, does anyone have a hard time referencing from real people rather than drawn pictures? Or is it just me?
>>124568809Does anyone nows what kind of brush is this?I mean with the ending and the start being smaller than the middleI'm in CSP and trying brushes and configurations But I don't know how to do it
>>124570236Very cute. Would touch her hair.
>>124570236reminds me of Swain
Felt like drawing some Supergirl last night.
>>124579884Thanks for showing me anon, yeah I can see you go more for simplistic, skillwise I think practice would really improve your art, it's there but not "there" just yet
>>124580917Daaamn, that's deep possible pro-non lol, words to remember by
>>124581567Very amateurish anon, but most artists started out tracing before being able to draw their own creations, keep at it and once your lines sop being jittery and start being smooth, you can start drawing decent OCs
>>124568809been working on this a few days now.
>>124581567I like how you've gone for the flying perspective. I'm usually too lazy to draw anything below the waist.
>>124568809This is the first one i started with.
>>124582754Shitson this is fucking great
>>124568809My original sketch drawn with a mouse with not mouse pad.
>>124568809Hello the very amateur annon here. I draw this reference body to help myselft with proportions and general anatomy . What you think?
Tried to draw my goblins but then remembered that I’m NGMI and gave up.
>>124582865Coloring's okay, anatomy needs work
>>124568809Just messing around with photo shop two images layered on one another.
Oh and there’s this one but I was never happy with her mouth.
>>124582893Also some new OCs.
>>124582893Keep practicing this repeatedly anon until your lines smoothen out, by then that's the time your skills have improved
>>124582948Coloring could be less smudgy/cleaner honestly, and more anatomy work especially faces
very rough concept for a small-scale project I'm tinkering with. 12 inch tall office worker has to rely on washed-out, trust fund baby to keep his life in order. hilarity ensues. I do not have a micro/macro fetish
>>124582970Spaceships are pretty awesome anon that's a given, the characters though, more anatomy practice
>>124582980Practice anatomy, practice coloring, almost there anon
>>124583106and something to help shake off some rust after a couple days of not drawing
>>124583106>>124583137I like the expressions, i think your art style just needs to be more polished and less-all-over-the-place
>>124583277what are you, every art professor I've had? in all seriousness that is my biggest issue I need to overcome. My everything could use work but simply making clean, finished work is something I have to push doing much more often but I can barely tard-wrangle myself to awkwardly draw in bed, nevermind sitting down and studying. oh well, I'll get there eventually
>>124583403Practice makes perfect anon, literally just this and no, I'm just an above average artist but that's for you anons to decide when I finally post here lol
>>124568809stop making this thread you stupid piece of shit
>>124582608Oh, absolutely, and thank you for the feedback! Always nice to hear. I have a habit of keeping it safe quite often (Even if I kinda convince myself I don't), and resorting to just doodling instead of more serious practice, which slows down the learning process, but I'm keeping at it.
>>124583521The heck's your problem, this has always been a /co/ tradition
>>124583521>>WAAH STOP BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER UNDER A COMMON INTERESTthese threads are as old as time
An OC villain I drew a little bit ago, named Xanitos
>>124583619No probs anon! Artists gotta help each other out, it's the reason for these threads after all
What do you do when you are drawing and realize you have a fetish? Keep going or try to avoid?
>>124583849The best artists have always drawn porn so keep at it
>>124583849people just need to just admit they like weird shit and move on. you don't have to scream it to the mountains and I generally advise against completely pigeonholing yourself into it, but >>124583888has the idea. not to mention that you kind of have to force yourself to be at least a little meticulous and learn anatomy in order to properly get yours, or others' rocks off to your work.
Drew this today. I call him Chrisward ScissorChan, and I have no clue what to do with him.
Let's see here... No not the coomer shit, not the gore shit... Ah this should be suitable for the christian board, a tank destroyer concept for a faction of my Dr3aM c0m1K I'll definitely make someday real soon TM
>>124583849Having a fetish is a double edged sword.On one hand it's beneficial because it gives you something to draw, to practice with. I've improved volumes drawing my sick fuck little fetish.On the other hand if you get too absorbed into it you risk losing sight of more productive things. Now if drawing fetishes is your main goal then you made it, but if it's more of a side thing instead of your "actual" stuff then try not to take precedence over your true passion project. Think about drawing your fetish as fucking a cheap whore and working on your true project as fucking your wife. Or alternatively, see fetishes as an addiction you need to keep in check like you would cigarettes or alcohol, at least that's the way I treat the matter. Identifying the problem is the first step to solving it
>>124568809I've been really struggling between choosing a style of drawing lately because I'm OCD as fuck. I normally use long, shaky lines because to me it looks better and I'm able to be more confident. However I see others using more of a stroking method when they draw and it's frustrating to decide what to use for when I sketch or try to complete a commission on here. Anyone have any advice?
>>124584341Experiment a bit and examine what you like about both types before making a final answer. Then you should be able to get with a linestyle you really like.
>>124569325Stfu jannieLet people have fun
>>124584068Shame, you got some skill lmao
>>124584127Gore's okay, we have HTF threads where gore posts never get nuked, and nice looking truck, can't wait to see it finished
Attempted (digital) watercolors. Drew more of the dream travelling rabbit-thing.
>>124585572Colors are comfy, character design could be better, practice more is all I can say
>>124584341Lines are okay, more work needed on anatomy and character design
>>124585643Yeah, I don't think I can design a character without relying on their outfit to differ them from each other. Any tips?
>>124581559Who's gonna tell him
>>124585715Anatomy work, for faces you need to look at old timey non pozzed western cartoons since they have wildly different face caricatures you can take notes from
I ended this one some few hours ago, my progress to choose color paletts sucks, is a miracle that I chose primary colors for this one
>>124586282More anatomy work, lines need to be crisper, nice palette choices though, very comfy
>>124586647Body's amazing, face is a real boner killer so fix it
>>124582631I forget where I heard it from. It's my personal mantra. Always try to do something everyday. It doesn't have to be good, you don't even have to like it, but always try and push.
>>124586647who is she? is there porn?
>>124586763Thanks alot pro-anon, means a lot
>>124586692Damn i knew i shouldn't have tweaked and messed around with the face so much>>124586825She's a friends OC and no there isn't (yet)
>>124587118Yeeeeeah, my previous critique still stands
>>124587192You got the coloring and paneling downpat, just work on your anatomy and character design
>>124587247Yeah I know. For a comic I publish back here in my country. Got no time and I know that arm sucks!
A concept design that I'm working on
>>124583663>>124583685This plus these (woya, donutsteel) threads are just fun, hyw too. Not a drawfag myself, but it’s cool to see other anon’s creativity.
Finished this (for the second time) like a day or two ago. Redesigned the characters and tweaked some shit and now I'm actually satisfied with it.
>>124568809Currently drawing a saga of like 11-12 pictures about a man and woman's dating nights.I just finished the third drawing in the saga and now starting on the fourth one.Can't show you the pics because they're paper drawn and I'm on a non-camera compy, but I can tell you that they are all animesque.
>>124587451All you need's anatomy practice really, dang I'm jelly, I don't mind publishing a comic myself as long as it's not in the US, too much wokeness
>>124587554Character designs look pretty interesting, your overall anatomy though needs work
>>124582776Nice lineart, decent art skills
>>124587853Holyfuck YES anon, SO much fucking better, gmi with this definitely
>>124588721May I ask which parts are wrong? I'm really in doubt!
>>124588971Your overall anatomy, from that page alone I get the impression you deliberately compose panels where it's easier for you to draw, you try to avoid complicated humanoid poses (just from a reader's pov mind you I'm not a professional artist myself lol)
>>124588966Good enough mugshot, can't really tell how good you are with bodies from this alone
>>124589078Then I can't take the critique. There is no deepness here or any specification. Thanks for the try, but I will see to ask a pro. Regards!
getting back into the swing of things
Why do I lose 50% of my skill when I draw digital vs traditional?I just want to make a fucking animatic
Finally took the time to work on this little animation. I already see a bunch of stuff I gotta tweak on the keyframes but I'm happy I at least got this "done" so I can refine it now.
recent sketch i still like
>>124589806Animation takes time, you gotta have the patience for it
>>124589813Cute chunky mouse anon, that snot's a mood killer tho
>>124589834Nice style, kinda niche-y
>>124583716Ah dammit it’s sideways
>>124583716You need to work on your character's depth and dimensions, otherwise keep on practicing
Something I did semi recently. I need to actually practice figure drawing and anatomy regularly, I barely ever do any.
>>124591604At least you know what you need to work on anon, practice makes perfect
>>124585265Ain’t no jannie, just pointing out that you losers need to post to /ic/ if you want to be real artists. But you won’t cuz you’re shitty little pussies.
>>124585448>HTF threadsNever heard about those. What are they? Where do I find them?And thanks for the compliment bro, my ego is boosted
>>124592085/ic/ is a hole of shitposts, why give it attention.
I’m off my art break and working on Rhodonite. I added some booba and pushed in her shoulders. Should I connect her second set of arms to her waist or have them kinda float, similar to the show
>>124592203No probs anon, also HTF stands for Happy Tree Friends aka peak cute gore
>>124592309Ohhhh right! I'd forgotten it even existed, I watched it all the time when I was like 10. That and Celebrity Deathmatch, good fucking times
>>124592258Looks better if you emulated the show's design
>>124592340Cartoons back then we're so much better, I wanna go back dammit, or better yet, hoping that the creators today would get the hint and go back to making cartoons like they did back in the day
Happy with most of my characters' designs. Working on line practice & various outfits
>>124592436Character design's nice anon, gotta work on your anatomy tho, arm and hand's too small
Did this recently.
>>124590542Hehe well she is supposed to be somewhat of a gross obnoxious nerd so being a mood killer is in her character description.
>>124593123Coloring could be less smudgy otherwise it looks good, also practice more on anatomy the lady looks off
>>124592436>>124592625I'a fix'a for da man
>>124593797Real coombait if you get rid of the snot heh, how many frames by the way?
>>124568809Feels like I'm in a rut (not sure I'll ever get the hang of digital) so trying to have fun drawing.Character concept I just drew (heavily based on on Marina from Splatoon admittingly) for a superheroine OC. Constructive critique is welcome.
>>124593917Looking good anon, nice bod, face looks somewhat disconnected with the rest of the body, otherwise keep on practicing for improvement
>>124593996Top tier coloring anon, really sets the mood, character design could use some work
>>1245938675 keyframes at the moment. I wanna fix up these keyframes a bit before I start adding the in-betweens.
>>124594170Dang, wish I can animate as smoothly as you someday, thanks for sharing~
>>124593861Lol, least you tried anon
>>124594045Guess I can practice drawing heads ala construction and figure drawing, at least to get the face proportions down.Wanna get the level of ''thicc'' just right, but that requires alot of anatomy knowledge and thats scary at the moment so I just did guesswork. Thanks!
>>124594354No probs anon, just glad I could help even a little bit heh, and yep it's all about practice
>>124594203Thanks anon. That makes me feel like wasting 80K going to school for it wasn't a COMPLETE mistake haha.
>>124591612knowing is half the battle...I'll stop being a mopey dick today and start up the grind again
>>124568809This is my /co/ related art when I am not doing stuff for /a/, /v/ or /trash/. I really need to iron out my muscle anatomy and He-man gave me the opportunity to do so. I am confident with my frontal body musculature but my back muscle anatomy needs sharpening hence the practice. Just need to clean his boots and add his body straps before I can call it finished.
I've been drawing this Porky Pig. Not sure if I wanna finish it.
I was wondering, is it okay to draw character designs while practicing fundies and anatomy things as well? I know i probably should get the basics down first since i still screw up basic things like drawing hands and other body parts. But i also love drawing fantasy or comic based ideas.
