Thank you sm! >Do you take commissions?
Not officially(haven't set up a commission sheet or paypal business acc or anything hghh), but I do a few here and there for fun. pretty sure this is against the rules but my email is there in case you're interested anyways
It's certainly embarrassing cuz it's porn, but I wouldn't call it bad art.
They're both very cute and your style is nice. But you only posted pencil sketches. Don't you have a tablet?
I'm just embracing it tbh. I love drawing goofy looking tumblr-people and shit>>187291
I do have a tablet and usually do a lot of digital painting. These were more just spontaneous sketches to quell my inner fujo

here's some degenerate furry art i made of sprigatito's inevitable 2 legged form
Aww this is cute!
I would advice muting colours that are as saturated as that violet so they’re not that ms paint-like, since they’re a bit jarring.
I absolutely looooove the big cute fluffy paw, and the detail on the furred face! Super cool! However I also feel it kinda clashes with how rushed and plain the tail looks in comparison, especially since it’s such a big subject in the piece. If you put the amount of care you put in the paw and fluffy cheeks towards the tail as well, it’s gonna look even more amazing.
Finally, completely up to your taste, but a blank background can make it feel pretty boring, poor kitty just floating there in infinite blank space. But just even a square or triangle of solid color for the background could make your art stand out more.

I love kirby too nonnie
!!!!! Your art is fantastic!!!!!!1
Thank you! That's one of the other reasons I like Kirby, it's full of very bright and varied colors to play around with! like instead of using bright pink for Kirby's skin I can use a pale reddish orange and soft orange which gives off a more summery "vibe". I did not know who Marco is, his face scares me but I like his art so thank you!>>191514

Super quick self portrait (5 min. for the sketch, maybe 15 for the coloring). I stopped drawing for a year or so (still did it occasionally, but not much) and have been getting back into it the past few months. I think I added too much purple on the skin, I wish I left more white showing so the cartoony blush didn’t look so out of place but oh well. The hair has some purple in it too but it doesn’t show up on camera very well. I think in the future I will try less shading and make it more solid colors, using my sketching pen to do most of the shading (red ballpoint). Also the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors are the best, I got a starter set and purchased some indivual colors to add and it’s the perfect set now! Especially the teal color (no. 57) is so good, smooth and pigmented.

My phone camera is a bit shit, also lol at the feet on the far left. I’m trying to do more character design but I never really learned anatomy well. I’ll continue drawing though, only way to get better!
This is so sweet, thank you nonna ♥ I'm 19 now and have been using sketchbooks since I was about 12. I used to do a lot of finished pieces and used my sketchbooks mostly for concepts so I'm not sure. I have a ton of old ones and I don't even know where they are lol (I think I gave them to my mom?). I pretty much completely stopped doing 'finished' pieces about a year ago and just used my sketchbook for colorful things, regular sketches, studies, figure drawings, thoughts, inspiring lyrics, writing, and whatever else. Ever since I've gotten into the habit of drawing every day again, I think I've gone through 2 other ones and have this one half finished (my sketchbooks I use have 50 pages and I use both sides of the paper). Thank you so much for the compliment by the way, I graduated high school a year ago and my art teachers hated me because I have quite a messy style and they saw it as laziness/low effort work, I didn't have the guts at the time to tell them I felt it made my work more lively and it made me enjoy the proces a lot more than my old approach which was sketch, ink and color. It made me stop enjoying art for a while because I just associated it with people telling me it wasn't good enough, low effort, this and that. I don't really care anymore though, if these people really knew how to make art they wouldn't be teaching it. I don't do art for others anyway, it's just a hobby I really enjoy, something I use to get my emotions out sometimes and that's fine imo.

I am afraid of posting my art here and people recognizing my style (I've posted art a couple of times although not in this thread), or recognizing my taste, but I would never post anything here that I've posted elsewhere.
Still, I would say do it anyways (post art for critique, not something you've posted elsewhere, I mean). If you have practically no audience on your social media/art accounts, it's extremely unlikely that anyone will care about cancelling you or something, or if someone recognizes you here, I doubt she'll make a big deal out of it.
And btw I've heard that some artists have posted or promoted their art here. I know one of them, but it seems that nothing bad happened to her.
File: 1652919186105.png (372.57 KB, 690x1600, leafgreen nuzlocke 02.png)
i could be wrong, but i believe the etiquette is that if you recognize someone's art outside of lolcow is that you don't call them out (don't quote me on this tho lmao). being active on an anonymous forum doesn't mean you're thoughts and views are the same as everyone else's on said forum (does that make sense?) so unless you've said some INSANE shit and it's traced back to you (example: creepshowart), i dont see why you'd be called out for being on lolcow or whatever.
and if someone who's lurking calls you out on it - wtf were THEY doing on lolcow?

Probably neva eva gonna finish this bc I have no patience with drawing these days. It's my Skyrim Altmer player character power fantasy lady. Is it too coomerish? I know the anatomy is a bit wonky. My works always have a weird aura of uncanny valley with the anatomy mistakes, maybe because I make them too "polished" so the mistakes show up more than in a more painterly/sketchy style.
BUT I LIKE THUNDER THIGHS
Ok, I'll take it it's a bit too coomerish then lmao? Also I was actually proud of those hands, now you come here to crush my dreams! No it's fine, thanks for your input nonna, I appreciate it
I actually like how you drew her thighs even if they’re obviously stylized to be larger and wider i think even from this I can tell you have a good grasp on anatomy to be able to stylize it like this, the other anon was unnecessarily rude imo, the hand by her head could use some work but the one by her belly is very well drawn and nice, I also like how you drew the little bits off boob coming off the side and how the gloves squish her arms, nice work nonnie
I always enjoy seeing your kirby art, so beautiful!>>207478
This is actually very cute! I agree the neck is a bit off but if it’s your first time drawing more furry characters it’s incredibly impressive tbh and I think the eye is very cute and pretty!

I use a lot of references mainly from pixiv (sometimes I practice drawing the references I find and from pictures with real people), and I also look at drawings that resemble the pose I want to draw to get an idea of how to draw it "right".
as a ~PROFFESIONAL~ artist my advice is
my REAL advice is to pick your anime hair color and then pick a lighter color that looks really pretty with it to use as a highlight. maybe experiment with overlay. go nuts. it's anime. (when my wrist stops hurting, i'll come back to this with some examples)

Quickie fanart I made of the Kirby Horoscope Collection, specifically of the Leo rubber keychain.
sometimes people can have a better grasp of broader anatomy but be worse at detailing or vice versa. i do think OP's pic could be traced but it could also be a newcomer who over-focused in one area but neglected others>>208449
if it isn't tracing: there's an uneven distribution of realism here that looks uncanny. the shading on the clothing is good but clashes with the hair, which looks much stiffer. the generally realistic proportions really clash with the cartoony look of the facial features. blending realism w/ stylization has to be done with a deeper sense of anatomy or the elements just look like they're conflicting with each other
if it is traced: that's fine to practice anatomical proportions but don't post it without clarification that it's practice or you will get reamed kek

Keep up the good work! It's fun to see how passionate you are about the Kirby franchise. While Metaknight's right leg is a bit wonky compared to his left, awkwardly grasped staff and his top hat would look a bit better if it tipped down more as he is looking downwards to Kirby other then that I can see the improvements along with you trying to have the characters a bit more dynamic then usual which always a good thing to see.
File: 1653272159282.png (240.84 KB, 715x725, metafeet.png)
Thank you nona! I am extraordinarily passionate about the Kirby franchise so I want to get better and improve. Yeah, admittedly, compared to my other works this is one I'm a little less proud of. Throughout drawing it I several times thought, "I should scrap this". I was trying to have Meta Knight do a cool pose that's fitting to the whole magician thing he had going on. You're right, his right foot is just kinda dangling off at the heel and I think putting it into the foreground (in-front of his body) would've made it look better perspective wise. I also feel the left foot is a little wonky too since the front of the foot is facing the viewer directly so it looks like the foot as a whole is melded to Meta Knight's back rather than the heel and
due to the size not being smaller (along with his hand too) it lacks perspective in a way maybe and angling it upwards would help? I see what you mean by the way he's grasping his staff, I'm still struggling with drawing gloved hands rather than just hands with fingers, working with mass blobs as hands is a little difficult. I'm tempted to buy large winter gloves and use those as references. Thanks, with Kirby characters it's a bit hard to do dynamic poses since you have so little to work with depending on the character so I try to look at other art, official art works and in-game sprite-sheets to gather inspiration and to study from.

From your post alone I can see that you have but a lot of thought and effort into drawing Kirby and co, especially since you have clearly done research about perspective as that is really important when drawing simple blobs that doesn't have a wide range of movements and the fact you still continued on drawing despite disliking the placement of Meta Knights feet as I like to think that every piece of work that I dislike is just practise that I should finish so that I can learn from my mistakes and try better next time. You could also look up Disney hand that are gloved like Mickey mouse as there is a ton of tutorial about that for sure otherwise purchasing gloves are a good idea too since you can always pose them yourself for reference. I posted a bunch of Kirby wallpapers here >>>/m/208400

I’ve tried different color palette on this portrait. I usually do realistic or black and white only because I’m scared of fucking up the values. Not really sure if it’s any good, but I think I need to leave my comfort zone.
Any critique is welcomed!
I love all the original artwork here btw, I rarely draw without reference, so to the nonnas posting here - you have my deepest admiration!
I probably described my painting badly but I never do the shades of grey to color technique, because I kinda don’t know how to make it work lol. I either do real skin tone or b&w. But you’re right that this one looks like I did just that and I don’t know why. On my iPad the picture looks way more saturated. I did this one like an oil painting - started with the orange background and adding the blues on one layer.
And thanks for the mention of hard and soft edges, it’s something I struggle to do properly, unless the source picture is in very contrasting lighting. I need to practice more!

It's fine for a hair study! Not sure what exactly was your focus, but if color then it's definitely missing a strong highlight, and if structure, then a good practice would be simplifying the shapes even more and applying more geometric approach to understand a 3d form better, kinda like picrel

HRG. Not sure if it’s finished. I have this problem with my artwork, whenever I try to polish it,I overdo it and it ends up looking worse. It somehow looses its "charm" or whatever it is. My sketches looks better than the finished thing. I guess it’s because I start to focus on details and I can’t see the big picture anymore. Anyone knows how to avoid this thing? I

Give him a big ass and make it so his bulge can be seen from behind. Otherwise he looks great, he reminds me a bit of Malleus Draconia from twisted wonderland, which is nice.
no, no nonny

he was actually a big inspo for the process !! so that makes me happy

looking for things to improve with this oc piece nonnas, i havent drawn for years and this was my first attempt
Sorry for not giving you actual advice, but I think you could benefit a lot by watching Naoki Saito's videos, especially the correction ones and ones about shadows. Correction videos 95, 81 and 97 touch on a lot of the points that I think will help your drawing really pop! While I do think you could fix up the anatomy, and finding a ref of that pose would probably help (mostly her legs, and (our right, her left) forearm is too long); lighting, background, and composition will honestly improve your drawing most. Those things seem a bit intimidating at first, but I think you'll be able to do it! Naoki's videos of him painting over the art submissions is way more useful (for me) than having someone try to explain it in words. He kinda turned into an nftbro but idgaf, his videos are super helpful. Your oc is really cute nonny

Great perspective and use of 3D space nonnie
! I also really like the shading on her shirt, there's such good value contrast and you can see where the material bunches under her arms and indicates directional movement.
Her facial features are a little spread out, like picrel. But if that was an intentional style choice, feel free to ignore that. There's also some lines that don't match up in the background. The floor line appears to be going two different directions, and is not parallel with the board. The photographs are a bit distracting because the photographs have more value contrast and pull the eye away from the rest of the picture, making everything look washed out by comparison.

You're welcome! I love your style so much and I look forward to seeing any new pieces you do. I've actually been trying collaging myself lately as my wrist is fucked from a decade of tattooing (early onset arthritis, fml) so collaging has allowed me to sketch a very rough idea for a picture and build on it without the pain. I might

I drew a Waddle Bowl, mostly as a test of drawing with only pencil brushes along with using a smaller canvas instead of my usual 2000 x 1000 canvases.
I suppose so! I love him a whole lots even if others may not and find him cringe. Though I now have the awareness to never mention him ever anymore.
Thank you, I want to get better at drawing food but I had to add a Waddle Dee, I can't help myself. I'm glad it looks yummy, rendering the fluffy rice was my favorite part!>>238358
Oh, I draw on huge canvases too. It feels like the image is sharper to me when it's on a huge canvas. Usually I start with a huge canvas and by the time I'm ready to ink I'll scale the canvas down.
Nah, it shouldn't. To be honest, it kind of really hurt to learn the truth of the matter is that he isn't a desirable husbando to others as he is to me. Others will never see him in the way I do. Talking about and posting him was making others annoyed, uncomfortable, or laugh. Not all husbandos are equal and I'm fine with that. I'd rather not make others uncomfortable by posting him or have my husbando, or my love for him, reduced to some shitty punchline or joke.
Thank you though, it means a lot to know others may like him!

Dedede is my one of two everythings, and I love him very much. I could talk about him, Meta Knight or Kirby for hours, enough to fill a three hour and thirty minute youtube if I had to give an estimate. My passion is unending to be honest and I can get a little carried away with it, so I could never lose any love or passion for him. Probably one of my biggest reasons for drawing things in general!>>238989>>238780
Thanks Anon, my passion is the one thing that keeps me driving and living each morning. If you're the Anon from /g/ who I snapped at, I'm truly truly sorry for how rude and aggressive I sounded, I really am. The way you acted, especially the wking, kind of scared me since it was eerily similar to a moid with a tsim fetish who stalked me on twitter and shitcord for a while and I just ended up freaking out a bit.>>239007
Thank you very much! If you're wondering how I did it, the trick is to use a low density or opacity analog pencil style brushes at a large size and build everything up from the dark color first and the lighter color next. Changing the direction in which you do your brush strokes helps as well as it adds different directions in texture. Three overlapping colors of a varying saturation and shade for each color to blend rather than an actual blending tool helps as well. I used three colors, yellow, pale yellow and pale brown to do the rice funnily enough!

I feel embarrassed posting my art because I feel like this is bad art but I have trouble rendering and fleshing out my compositions and have problems finishing my drawings because none of them are perfect. do any of you have any good tips/videos for improving color theory and perspective?
Practice perspective by studying references. It's essential that you start seeing things in 3D (or in shapes) instead of just lines on a canvas. I know it's boring but it'll help a lot.
As for color theory there are plenty of videos/tutorials, but you can also study professional artists you like and look at how it's applied. Lots of great artists also post speedpaints on YouTube so you can see the process.

Edges need to be cleaner
Colors are muddy : need more contrast and values shift (look up black skin color palettes refs)
No light source, which brings us to the next point :
Feels too flat : look faces and body planes refs such as the one attached
And mroe importantly, keep drawing !

thank you nonna,
here’s side by side. now when I’m looking at it, I can see the values are off. Maybe I shouldn’t try to get the proportions so right and concentrate on shapes instead. I have a visual impairment (everything I see is kind of skewed and crooked) so digital has been a great help to me. I dont trace, but I make an outline of the source and than I can easily compare it to my drawing. but it obviously limits me too. I have some sketch portraits and although they are not that accurate,they look better than those where I try to be really accurate with proportion.
Kirb-dedede anon, if you're still around, can you let us know about other inspirations and resources you used to learn how to draw?
I really like the movement, forms, and life in your art and I want to stea–borrow some!!

File: 1663903694725.png (2.09 MB, 2175x1433, dontworryyouwillgetthere.png)
Don't know if I'm the best one to give advice, I mean my only strong suits is coloring and that's about it. I can't even draw humans granted, I don't want to.
but for you, nona, I'll give it a shot.
I'll just go over the basis for my art. To be clear, I use a pirated copy of Clipstudio Paint EX.
My biggest inspiration is Kirby, in general. The colors, the aesthetics, everything. So usually I'll play Kirby and take screenshots to use as references, look at other Kirby art, read some of the novels, etc. The Kirby Art & Style Collection book is also one of my biggest references as it covers so many different art and concepts from the entire series up to Robobobot. As for other inspirations, it can be other things like songs I listen to, manga covers, things I see about my day, etc. Really it's anything and everything, though usually it's something cute and adorable.
I generally like soft palettes so I tend to stick to those, but in general I usually use a basic color palette. I used to use a copic marker color palette I got from the ClipStudioPaint Asset Store, but that was removed so I just use a regular color palette called "和色カラーパレット" from https://assets.clip-studio.com/en-us/detail?id=1631368
, it covers all the basic colors you'd need and then some. Color choice really depends on what you're going for with your individual art peice, though I try to be creative with my color choices nowadays using purples to shade reds, cyans to highlight navy blues, blues to shade pink, etc. So it's always good to try playing around with colors, some books I would suggest that I used when I was still shit at color theory would be 色の教科書, コピックかんたん上達色ぬりレッスン, コピックで描く基本 可愛いキャラと身の回りの小物たち, though the last two lean towards marker like illustrations but they help all the same. You can find them on places like e-/ex-hentai as horrid as that sounds. Another thing that helps with coloring is playing around with gradation and hues, they can brighten up, make colors more contrast, make certain areas pop, etc. I would suggest taking an illustration that you used LOTS of different colors and just taking a moment to put different filters and different hues, it gives you a better understanding of what colors might look interesting together when shifted.
As for resources, I admit, I'm a bit of a brush hoarder. In reality, outside of my tablet I can't draw or even write well. My hands shake too much so I'm thankful for technology that has things like stabilizers. As such, I'm able to try out all sorts of different types of drawings and I tend to go a bit hog-wild. I would have to say I use about three different groups of brushes on a daily basis. Manga-type ink brushes, I use them for all sorts of things like hatching, line art, etc. Marker and Watercolor-type brushes, which I use for making "softer" looking pieces. Rough Paint and Pencil-type brushes, which I use for making pieces that are more painterly and have texture to them, along with textured line art or hatching. I'm going to drop my favorite from each category.
Manga-type Ink Brush>１本で線画＆描き文字ペン (https://assets.clip-studio.com/en-us/detail?id=1811648)
I love this pen a lot, I use it for almost everything. It's not too texturized but just
enough that there's a little dash of analog to it. The pen pressure is really good, allows for a lot of control. I used it for my past doujinshi as it's perfect for doing the general inks, small hatching, details, and small SFX.
Marker and Watercolor-type Pen>Tマーカー風ブラシセット (https://assets.clip-studio.com/en-us/detail?id=1692034)
I love, love, LOVE this marker set. I looks almost like the real thing if I had to say. The blending tool is wonderful and I use it more than the base blending tool It's perfect for soft water color art that relies on the white background, and more colorful watercolor art. I tend to call these pens the "Digital Copics
" because they behave the same way in buildability and bendability. They're best used with pencil brushes and a just barely yellow-tan background.
Rough Paint and Pencil Brushes>しげ絵筆令式 (https://assets.clip-studio.com/en-us/detail?id=1871677)
These are my absolute go-to when it comes to making rendered painterly art. It's wonderfully textured, with different brushes that have varying level "scratchiness" to them, so you can layer different colors over with the lower color showing through. They look nice, work nicely and are always reliable from the get-go so you don't need to do much finicking with them.
Those are my main resources for drawing and coloring.
As for process. Usually when I come up with something, I'll write it down and sketch it. Usually I'll use one or two colors depending on what I'm sketching like blue for the background and red for the character. It's better to clean your sketches rather than leaving them messy. Messy sketches won't be as defined and easy to follow as clean sketches, and can lead to slight trouble when you begin inking them. This is just me though, I find I ink faster on a clean sketch than a messy one. I use a huge canvas so I can copy and paste various references I may need around the area I'm drawing because CSP's subview is absolute shit and I don't like opening a new tab for each thing I need to remember. Such things could be screenshots, flowers, color palettes, photos, official renders, etc.
After I check the sketch looks good after flipping, and tweaking and such, I'll save it and close CSP and go ahead and ink tomorrow. Usually the period from sketching and beginning inking allows me to think of things I might not have thought of in the moment like slight additions or changes. I feel taking some times allows you to better stew on what you'll want to do later on. Unless I'm doing a painterly picture, I'll move on to inking after the sketch.
Once I'm ready to ink, I'll do it all in one swoop. I'll have different layers for different things. For example, Layer 1 will be the main body, Layer 2 for small details, Layer 3 will be facial expressions, and Layer 4 will be the background and so on. I feel this allows me to better edit and change things without accidentally erasing something.
Once all is done, I'll go ahead and color. Now, how I color really depends on how I plan to color like if I plan to use water colors or cell-shade or soft rendering. I feel that's too much to type so I'll just put it plain and simple. I layer on the base colors, then shade/blend on a different layer in a completely different folder, and repeat the same with highlights and detail. The reason being so that I can change colors easily if something seems off or I want to play around. (I don't do this for watercolor though, I just do the colors on one single layer for that.)
I also feel the airbrush tool tends to look bad unless done to add a gradient over a large area before applying the shadows and light over it or done as a "non-textured" water color brush against a white background. This is just a personal preference.
After coloring I just do tweaks. I'll maybe add a gradation, shift hues, modify the canvas, add a frame, white highlights, text, etc. It's just the general tweaks before I post it online.
And done, that's how I do illustrations and such. I also used to use this book, Let's Make ★ Character CGイラストテクニック, for a basic workflow of how illustrations are done, it's very helpful!
Some other books I've used… (Note. Some of these are one-offs after I used them for their worth, some of these I come to occasionally, and some of them I refer to constantly.)
着物の描き方 基本からそれっぽく描くポイントまで, マンガで使える! 食の描き方, 動きとシワがよくわかる 衣服の描き方図鑑 服の仕組みから角度別の描き方まで, 完全実用版 おんなのこの服の脱がせ方 (I mostly use this a reference when I'm drawing pin-ups, it's porny though.), Sketching Manga-Style Vol. 4 - All About Perspective, デジタルイラストの「表情」描き方事典:想いが伝わる感情表現, ちょっぴりHなコスチュームの描き方 (Porny, so be warned. Mostly used this when I was sketching up a personal lewd calendar of my husbandos but I still occasionally go to it even now), 軍服・制服の描き方 アメリカ軍・自衛隊の制服から戦闘服まで (For any of you who has a thing military or uniforms, this is PERFECT, even outside of a reference I love it)
As for other small things I keep in mind…
0. Draw what you love, and only what you love. Never let drawing become a chore.
1. When it comes to forms, I just go for what would look cool and interesting and or cute and simple. Though I always try to make sure my compositions look somewhat symmetrical or have an interesting contrast. As for movements, I just try to make sure nothing looks too shift, there should be curves and such with arms, details that imply there's movement going on, etc. The facial expressions help too, I'm horrible when it comes to reading (and drawing) facial expressions so I actually have a folder of them that I've screenshotted from manga and such. As for life, I just try to draw the characters as if they're living as weird as that sounds.
2. This is biased but I feel Kirby characters are perfect for practicing colors. As each character has a general core color theme you can use to test for certain colors. Meta Knight is perfect if you want to get used to experimenting with blues, purples and yellows. Dedede has the primary colors, yellow, red and blue built directly into his design, and so on.
3. There will always be a bigger fish so feeling insecure is stupid. By that I mean, if you feel insecure or upset that your art isn't good enough or isn't good, don't because it's true
. Someone will always
be better than you at art, someone will always draw better, someone will always draw more interesting and creative pieces, someone younger than you will draw better than you, someone older will draw better than you. This is a universal constant you will and should learn to accept, so there's no use in being sore or jealous of other artists and their skill. Instead, be inspired and use those inadequate feelings you develop to push yourself harder to improve and become the best artist you yourself want to be. Even more so if you're drawing for fun. I guarantee, if you think something like "God, I wish I was like this artist!!! It's not fair!!!" someone is thinking the same about you.
4. Everyone's art has always started piss-poor before they began to improve, pic very very much related (2019-2023). No one is born picasso, and if someone is, become better. Just continue working and improving at what you like and what interests you and you will get there.
5. Try everything and go for it. If you want to try something, absolutely go for it! The best way to improve is to try different things, experiment with different things. Use a painterly brush and textured watercolor brush in one art peice. Even if it sucks, all that matters is that you tried and went for something different and that in itself is a form of improvement, moving out of your comfort zone. If you want to draw something in a lineless painterly style, go for it! If you want to make a doujinshi, go for it! If you want to draw with nothing but pencils, even for coloring, go for it! Just try all sorts of different things, it'll be worth it since you might just pick something up on the way. It's great to incorporate some sort of practice of fundamentals into your drawing
6. Don't use too many artbooks, it will overwhelm you and you'll never read them, same goes for brushes.
7. Drawing porn is only fun if you personally and actually enjoy what you are drawing. Never draw porn if you don't like it, especially if you're drawing porn for others.
8. And most importantly, have fun.
9. Perspective is an absolute pain in the ass but you should definitely learn it. Fundamentals are cool.
Hope this helps. Shit, I sound like a shitty art channel don't I?>>240290

Should probably get off my ass and design shit for real.
You went above and beyond the stars!! Reading through this made me realizes a lot of areas I was succumbing to chaos too and not really in a fun way either. Like, doodling things I didn't even like just because I was better at certain things and was afraid of exploring, or being disorganized in an oddly unspontaneous way–in contrast to your conscientious approach. And it's really silly cuz when I drew something I really liked, it made me happy. Also, I asked you because there's something I like about your drawings that I prefer over, say, what I see when I look up Kirby and similar art of nonhuman characters. Take that as you may.
Anywaaay, I ramble. I'll check out some of the links and references you gave. I'm pretty shy but maybe I'll talk about my progress sometime here.
From 2018 to 2023, so six years as of now.>>241469>>241470
Thanks, I'm glad I could help.
I get what you mean. I feel like every artist has that moment when they fear trying something new. For example, despite my uncomfortable lust for Dedede, I only just
started drawing him maybe a few months ago because I was afraid to branch out into something so alien and new. Sometimes you just got to force yourself even if it's scary and even if you know it's going to look bad at first. A comfort zone is a double edged sword in a way.
I'm happy to hear that, it's amazing when you're able to draw something you really do enjoy and love, something that actually makes you proud.>I asked you because there's something I like about your drawings that I prefer over, say, what I see when I look up Kirby and similar art of nonhuman characters. Take that as you may.
I genuinely don't know how to take this but I will assume it's supposed to be a compliment so thank you very much, it means a whole lot.
I'd love to see your progress and I'm honored that my advice was of some use!
Oh, it was meant to be a compliment. I love your art. The expressions, style, liveliness–I worded it like I did because I love these characters, but never really found art I really loved of them until now.
Your Dede-delay is painfully relatable and describes most of my early art attempts. Can't believe I spent so long dawdling on things that were so much less fun to me. Oh well. Here I am, on the right path now.
Can you post more examples of the brushes you use in your art? example>Rough Paint and Pencil Brushes
I want to see a drawing using these
Here's this >>196512
. For the Waddle Dee picture, I only used different colored pencils to color, shade and add lighting. For the second picture, I used a mix of Rough-paint to do the coloring and pencil brushes at different sizes to do add textures and details.

Yes! It was done on lined paper (at work lol). I finally found a setting of the line extraction tool on clip studio EX that eliminates only the lines from the paper. I’m really happy because I really only can draw on lined paper due to mental issues so this really opens up a new world for me. I think for it to work the drawing has to be in black pen so there is enough difference between it and the lined paper. If anyone has EX and wants to try, I used the “posterize before extracting” option and played with the ratio.

Very early sketch, but how are the colors looking like so far? (aside from most likely terrible on mobile).
I usually draw with 3 colors (2 main + 1 accent) because I'm kinda bad at picking them, but I wanted to give her some colourful flowers and I don't know if they clash too much.
!! They don't clash at all, I would play around with the blue flower a little, reflect that yellow off the other two flowers like how you did with the pink, it's very pretty & makes it a bit more cohesive. You definitely have an eye for colour, be more confident and play around, there's endless opportunity! Good luck

Hey the thin lineart looks good and there's a visible improvement. I'd advise against tracing though even if its just practice cause it can be difficult to understand what the original artist was stylizing (for example the area around the leg should fold more like picrel, I'm guessing the original had clothes covering it). Instead I suggest looking at real photo poses for reference, or the mirror. Cute design though.

Thank you! I have a lot of practice drawing glasses heh. Profile is actually the easiest portrait angle, only one eye to draw and a clear line to get the proportions right.
To answer your question - yes, it’s a digital drawing, I mainly use procreate. I used to only do traditional, I love traditional, but doing it all on ipad is much more convenient. I sometimes try to mimic the traditional feel in digital, in drawings it’s quite easy, paintings are harder.
Here’s a portrait where I tried to make it look like a pencil drawing.

First off, I love the linework here it looks solid and confident. The style is nice here, I love how blocky and round everything looks without coming off as the style being used as a crutch. Everything looks fun and pleasing to the eyes. It looks like you have a pretty solid grasp on shapes and perspective already. I'd say you could work on keeping certain things like the little details consistent within the designs, for example the height of the rectangular design of the character on the right's shoes don't match up. One being shorter than the other. Other than that, it all looks really really good!

This was more so a refresher in doing my usual cell-shading style and a way to warm up for other drawings such as a card for Meta Knight's birthday. >>280095
Very cute cat, I like the shading a whole lot a and it reminds me of old picture books.
Thank you very much! Now that you mention that, I really
should have. The funny thing is, you can sort of tell I had originally went/was going with a textured fluffy coloring with the floor and cotton candy but when I got to coloring Meta Knight and Kirby I changed my mind. Reason being I hadn't done cell shading in a while and wanted to 'brush up' on that however in doing so, while it does bring your attention to Meta Knight and Kirby, it strongly clashes with everything else so I kind of regret that stylistic choice. Thanks, I definitely need to get better with lighting though, I think I tend to make the characters a little too flat with the lighting or not make the changes in lighting such as shadows visible enough.

i feel like its still missing something, i can't pinpoint what
maybe more color?
I’m not an expert in anime art, but when I look at your picture, I see a discrepancy between the very detailed eyes and the sketch mouth. The eyes stand out and are very nicely rendered and the mouth looks like it belongs to someone else. But otherwise your work is great! I love the emotion of it all. The expression is like she’s guilty of something, or smiling through sadness. It’s very good. Especially when you say you draw once in a 5 months… like girl, you are very talented, draw more! If you can of course. I know the struggle. I have art as a hobby, I gotta work, so there’s not much time to draw. And then there’s the awful thing called artist block… I got that too. I once haven’t draw anything at all for 4 years. But keep going nonny
first of all, thank u!!!
and yes her expression is sort of a "smiling thru to the pain", i guess i just decided to draw how i felt at the time? lol
and yessssss i had so much struggle with the mouth AAAAAA, i tried rendering it more and using different styles first, but nothing felt right. So i settled for a painful smile ww
but in the end i guess it not too
bad considering most older anime art also follows this pattern a lot, to the point it linda turned into a meme, the overly detailed eyes and hair, but extremely simple eyebrows nose and mouth
ps: if any of you want to tweak it to what you think would look better, please feel free to do so and share it! id love to see everyone's ideas and takes on this piece~(learn2integrate)

samefag but I also drew Meta Knight and casual clothes. My brother said he looks like the famous Korean idol, Jimin. I'm still shaking and crying thinking about it.
May be personal opinion but I think your hair highlights are too dark.
Objectively speaking tho your lines are too messy and those random squiggles on the hair make it look dirty in an amateurish way. Clean that up a bit. I see you removed all such lines that you were using as highlights except the black ones, good job, but the black lines also have to go.
You can improve the hair highlights if you give them either a more natural zig-zaggy shape, or a more defined straight/curved shape (like in some simplified anime styles) that doesn't look like you just drew one lazy stroke of the pen brush with default settings.

He's beautiful, like really really beautiful. I really love this, the way the lines are scratchy yet still provide such a detailed face that draws you in reminds me of those old European inspired mangas or something. Really really good. His face is just mesmerizing, it's truly hard to describe.

Study more animal anatomy, specifically écorchés if you can find them. In this case, you'll want to look at references of odd-toed ungulates for the hind legs. Picrel is also a good read for what you're trying to do. The body is serviceable ( a little oversimplified, maybe) but the head doesn't make much sense; the jaw is really small compared to the cranium, and unusually placed structurally. >>294065

i think you should start with the lineart, checked that guy's art(thanks for the rec, love it) and he has a very seamless lineart. Have you tried asking him about his process? they seem very small and will most likely see your comment.
File: 1683998173012.png (358.73 KB, 508x670, Illustration.png)
Hi nonita! First off that artist's work is really awesome, thank you for linking them.
I think your art style is very fun already! But if you're looking to emulate this specific style I think right now your art is too soft compared to tealidium's work. I'd recommend either removing the transparent white border around your lineart or committing to making it fully white for a bold effect! With rendering it looks like this artist works with the contrast of cool and warm tones and does it really well. From a cursory scroll they vary their colouring style a bit, but in general it looks like warm colors with a cooler but more desaturated darker tone for shading. Similar with cold colors, with a warmer but more desaturated shading color. See picrel for an example!
Another feature is the different use of blurred and hard lines which your art is lacking, the artist looks like they're using a spray paint or crayon textured brush when blurring lines so if you have a program like CSP see if you can find any brushes like that on the asset store. All this plus the more crisp lineart (which I think comes more from experience than anything else) makes up the style you're aiming for.
Sorry for the reddit spacing I didn't want a massive text wall, hope this helps nonnie

I was finally able to get a moment to draw, I ended up sketching Taranza. Halfway through drawing this I came to sudden realization of how does one spill something with six hands? Tarazna is clumsy enough to make the impossible, possible.

I also drew this for Easter but I really don't like how Dedede's face came out. I think I made his face too square.

check /ic/ video course thread. Honestly the art of 99% of art teachers sucks, you should take what they teach and apply it on your way. After all, the fundamentals are all the same and the bones and muscles and how light and color interacts with an image are pretty objective subjects. I say make your own curriculum. pic rel is mine.

I haven't finished or even started a drawing in such a long time and it feels bad
but making this felt really nice even if it's kinda ugly
I love gumi ♥

I really want some advice on… everything basically. I wanted to ask about rendering at first, cause I get lost after applying flat colors, but come to thing of it, my digital art looks extremely messy and ugly. Is there like an easy fix to unfuck it? I kinda going for that comic book-y messy lines vibe, if that makes sense.

i actually really like your sketchy lineart it looks like it belongs in a dark comic! i tried redrawing it in a cleaner artstyle and a bit of rendering (sorry i usually draw only women). i really love how you draw noses!
I think this is really far from ugly lol.
Not an expert on messy comic book style but maybe try doing the outline/main lines of your character and only then add details to make it look messy on the surface? Also, idk what drawing app you use but csp's shop has some bangers for different textured inking brush, especially for comic books/manga
That's a lovely paintover, nona! TY for the effort you put into it, cause when you applied your skills, something in my brain clicked and I got a better feeling on how I want my art to look. I especially like the textures on the left, cause I realized that I can make some sort of celshading stuff but with textures applied to shadows, which I think would look interesting. Thanks again!>>299123
Kek thanks. I just feel that my art lacks the polish of more smooth line art, but on other hand it doesn't have this chaotically pretty feel that you all over the place.
I use photoshop and use different brushes, but my problem is that I can only use basic untextured brushes with a good control of pressure. Unfortunately, I would really love to use textured brushes for ink, but I don't feel them if it makes sense. My brush of choice that I used for this sketch has this very artificial feel.
I tried using other programs, mainly SAI, but I always come crawling back to PS, cause I just like the huge array of functions and tools and how easier they can be used than CSP and SAI.
Anyway, thanks for your feedback, it gave me inspiration to try more and I would probably post more art after I process the info!
sage for completely ot but this is my husbando type so thank you for the oc nonnie
(looks great just so you know!)
