Alright, I'll bite. Bored enough. How about some art talk? Gushing isn't my style and you know it. I never registered on DeviantArt for a reason.
Seriousface. That usually means I'm going to be boring :<
Pretty good stuff from what I see. Most of it is broken for me though (Or removed for bewbage, maybe).
Hahaha i think the reason why some of the links are broken is because i linked them from Facebook, and they break all the time because Facebook always changes :/
Let's check out what can be seen...
The posing is thoughtful... and totally what I would expect from you in regards to your selection of figures (Or the ones that sparked the most energetic comments, at least).
Actually.. i free-hand everything, the pose comes out that way because i'm trying to become more dynamic in my work so i can start feeding backgrounds around my body language, I'm having trouble with legs and feet though lol ~___~.
For me, expression is everything in a cartoon character so I really like the freehand one at the top with the carrots, Honey's and the cheeky smirk on the last one. You also sketch the female anatomy really well
Yeah another love of mine is facial exp
ressions, being a rather adult artist at times, exp
ression is key to sell a scene and make the viewer feel exactly what that character is feeling, i also hate "same-face" where an artist repeats the same face for the majority of their work, so i try to keep things varied...not that Death is full of exp
ression, moody cow...
the clothes pinch just where they should (The stockings and such)
New area i'm working on, clothing interests me greatly, i mean i can design it easily but it's how it drapes and clings to curves and the body in motion, it's really fun to study!
and even managing to sneak in some extra curricular with Blaze up there. Don't think we didn't see that!
I swear it was a pencil slip when lining it neatly! i swear! xDD; Actually it probably was intentional since i sometimes can't help myself being an adult artist and all
The hands are my favourite parts though... uh, hands... down (That was painful).
I LOVE hands, i enjoy drawing them more than the character sometimes, i started out shit but practiced with every fibre of my being to get where i adore the things i hated the most!
Particularly in the last post. You must have taken your time there. I know it seems rather mundane but they are rather pesky things.
That piece was so hard, my biggest weakness outside of legs and feet is character interaction, so this was rather a big step for me, the hands came out exactly how i wanted them to (besides Shan's left hand....) But they came out very caring and loving, which fits the piece perfectly since people ship Death & Shannohn (they're bipolar opposites, Death is a moody quirt bitch who loves to kill, Shannohn is very energetic and loves to pick on Death for being different) they also happen to be team mates... so yeah, it's a given really
The Darkspine sketch stands out also. You took a lot of care penciling that. It's also nice to actually see pencil sketches in the first place. I'm so used to looking at digital these days and I know it's rough but it's rather refreshing to see something traditional come out so well.
My biggest gripe with the art world is the sudden change to "everything digital" because traditionalists do not get noticed for their talents with raw materials when you see all these photoshop mary-sues going around, filtering everything and adding sparkles, so yeah traditional medium will always be my thing, That Darkspine is pretty old now, it's like 2008 old but i don't usually do pencil shading so it was one of my more proud pieces, also blame Verte for me doing Darkspine, it was her love for Secret Rings that made me draw him, kinda like a secret gift in a sense.
I'll bet the contrast is much more striking straight off the paper though (I'm assuming these are straight scans).
It is. And yes they are straight scans, i had a pretty beastly scanner back then, it died last year though
seriously, buried it in the garden and everything with a tombstone :'c
This is me impressed by the way.
I aim to please
I'd be interested in seeing more definitely. N-not that I know a thing about art or anything...
Make it through the sunshine words? Excellent. While I was writing I happened to have a pencil nearby so here you are... stickman version of it. Came out all Terminator-y. Apologies for shite and spoilering so as not to intrude. Thought it might be funny.
Was very thoughtful, thank you! i love her exp
ression! haha BRS's Rock Cannon XD Death has her own version... i just need to...design it properly lul.
I will! thanks!
tl;dr - Cool thread, yo! Keep up teh gewd werk, rite?
