No. 187313

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.

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.

No. 197449

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.

Nonas I have a question. Do you guys tend to post the art you post on lolcow elsewhere too or just here? Are you ever afraid of people recognizing your style and outing yourself as an anon? I always want to share because I feel like nonas are generally helpful and nice with art advice but I’m too terrified to actually post art in case someone recognizes it.

No. 207384

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.

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.

I don't mean to be rude, but this drawing looks like you've never drawn a woman not splayed out on a bed. Each of her thighs is 130% as wide as her waist, she's about to topple over from the sheer mass. Also she seems to have sprouted anemones in place of hands.

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!

No. 207558

Nta but if you look for images of women with thick thighs you will see that they won't have such a tiny waist in comparison, I think those proportions make it a bit coomerish, especially with the thigh spill. The hands are different sizes and it looks like the fingers have random lengths. The middle finger should be the longest and yet it somehow isn't. And I feel like the nose is too high up, drawing the bridge like that also makes the face look older but maybe that's just my preference. And the little sack on her waist looks awkward and out of place and like you're drawing your first idea of a little bag. Just look up references instead of making it up. It looks cute overall though, I hope you can have some fun with it!

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".

No. 208279

Nta but I had the same problem and I solved it by looking at a lot of pictures of the muscles you're unsure about, as well as videos (things like sports videos or anything with half-naked people going around) to get how they work in movement and above the skin. After you copy and study them enough times it just clicks and you'll remember how to do it even from memory.

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)

The proportions of the figure's outline is way too realistic and stiff in comparison to how the facial features are drawn.

No. 208478

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

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

>>208471 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.

No. 208486

Nona, her picture is clearly traced. Her skill level is obviously way below that of someone who would be capable of drawing the bodies. If she had the actual understanding of anatomy and form that it would take to do the bodies she wouldn't have drawn the eyes, noses, and inner ears like that; they're too simplified, and off with everything else. Also, her shading is like an amateurs, yet she was capable of getting the placement right in a realistic way, which makes this look more like it was traced. Someone is going to have to find the original picture, or op should just post it.

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.

No. 208672

I like your idea for this, you're good at hands and the flowers. But the line work, and proportions for some parts of this are not that good. The upper part of the head is too small in comparison with the ears and facial features. Their eyes are too big, and too close together. Also their arm is a bit of an odd shape, it's abnormally pointy. Your line work is inconsistent, their features get progressively thinner towards their eye, which makes it a bit jarring to look at.

With the line art you should make it around the same width for the most part, especially where you have such thin lines for the eyes, but it's right next to a thicker line for the nose, and hands.

No. 208913

It looks like you have a nice grasp on values to start with. Once you get to the rendering portion of drawing it is a lot of work just studying which spots of values need hard and soft edges. I'm about the same place as you when it comes to coloring- I start in black and white and then add a tone but it ends up looking flat unless I fuss with it. Once you move on from edge and shadow studying you'll want to move onto skintone and color studies (especially in the face because of the color nuance gets crazy)

No. 208931

Thank you!
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 looks great, especially if you consider the character's complexity. What I would be more careful about is the linework (it looks a bit too sketchy and thick) and the shading which looks a bit rushed and confused. I can also notice a few points where the coloring goes outside the lines. Is there some kind of texture near his head and ears? If there is, try not to use textures if you're still learning some things. I see a lot of beginner artists overusing a bunch of grainy textures and brushes to hide mistakes or make the piece look cooler, but it just ends up being distracting and "dirty".

the weak part is definitely the background, the trees look fuzzy instead of leafy, and pushing the atmospheric perspective harder would help differentiate the character from the background.

No. 230632

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.

I love the palette! I think you would benefit from separating the character from the background as two layers, maybe even three for the fence. The places where the character meets the water/fence/mountain/sky is a bit awkward because you couldn't just naturally make those strokes and extend the image behind her, instead everything merges/stops at those points. This will also help you clean up her silhouette later without messing the background up.

Doodle to compensate for the postings below, it's Meta Knight but babey.
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!
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.
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 wish they would update it or make a sequel considering the new games and many new promotions that have come out since then like Pupupu Horoscope, 30th Anniversary Music Fest and 2019-2022 Kirby Cafe. If you prefer books rather than the games, the novels are really good!

No. 240267

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.

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.

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?

This post is so helpful, thank you

No. 241470

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.

No. 241471

From 2018 to 2023, so six years as of now.
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!

No. 241475

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.

Thank you anons you have warmed my heart
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.

Adorable nonnie!! 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.

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.

I love this! I know how does it feel to have the art block. I had one that lasted 4 years… I wrote songs and poetry instead.

A bit awkward but ok otherwise.

This is already pretty good imo, maybe one thing you could do is add more variation with the line thickness, I see you've already done that on the details like the shoe, but personally I think the skirt could have thinner lines, for example, as it blends too much with the glove of the girl on the right (for example). It's really cute though, are these OCs?

Thanks, metakirby is one of my top fives.
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.
Very cute cat, I like the shading a whole lot a and it reminds me of old picture books.

No. 284408

this is extremely cute and well drawn nonna, my only small advice ( more like an opinion really ) is that I wish you would have used a more textured brush on the characters, the stones look reaaly beautiful with that watercolor look and I think it would fit well to do all the coloring a bit more in that style. I really like your ligthing btw!

No. 284412

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.

New art, this was for Meta Knight's birthday.

Kirby and Dedede's are on the 26th so I want to draw something special for them next.
She's very cute, I like what you have so far and I can't wait to see the final product! I would suggest giving more textured definition to the edges of her hair but that's about all.

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)

No. 290455

So this is just a quick thing, but you have shading above her eyebrow and below her hairline, which would be a very hard thing for 'real lighting' to do. Creating lighting and shadows can be really hard to grasp, but I would suggest working on thinking about the light hitting your model at a really specific angle. What would it look like? What shadows would it create? If there is a shadow created from the hairline, it suggests an overhead light, but the eyebrow having shading above suggest a light from below, which is a little contradictory. I think if you work on shadows, (maybe even some dramatic lighting), it can help you a lot. You also say you think your character needs more color, and playing around with the lighting can add a lot more color to your art without having to add extra things like accessories (that might not necessarily fit the vibe) of your character. You can play around with warm and cool light too. I'd look into 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.

I don't like how this came out, you can seriously tell I was pressed for time from the sloppy blending of the icing and the lax and simple rendering of the fruit.

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.

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!

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?

No. 299133

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!
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!

something like this, i get told my men look cute? im very used to drawing women. ive tried switching my artstyle here and there but it doesn't seem to work?

No. 303051

A lot of anime styles get called cute but i notice these things
>soft expression, shiny eyes
>cute outfit as you said
this one idk
>detailed outfit
>it's an attractive dude ig
i'm pretty sure people call your style because of the first piece type drawings
the ambience in the second one isn't exactly missing the dark feel but the pose of the guy licking his hand may not be really the feel you're going for, perhaps some people call your art cute because they like the type of character you draw?
A lot of artist i've seen considered dark and gritty use dark themes (not emo, more like idk death and disturbing imagery, try to use stuff you personally find scary perhaps), muted colors maybe? violence (not just blood, actions too) and characters with not necessarily detailed outfits/style but more details on what makes them gritty.
Maybe you don't like these things and that's ok, people don't always know how to define/compliment art and that doesn't mean your art isn't working the way you intended

No. 303117

I think you are doing good,keep going and make sure to post your studies when you finish practicing.
I would recommend you looking closer into anatomy and how muscles work, cause you art is more tubes and blocks that represent ribcages/pelvises, while with gesture drawing its more useful to pay more attention to muscles and bone structure. Research more anatomy and try to apply how certain muscles contract and how you can covey movement through that.
Keep grinding, nonnie!

Tysm! I will try my best helping, but I am pretty shit at explaining. I make the lines, fill the base color in a layer under the lines. I pick a highlight and a shadow that are not too distant to the base color and lower the opacity of the brush to 60% and give it the first shading, sometimes color picking to blend some areas. Lastly I pick a very bright highlight and dark shadow and place only in a few areas. to give it more dimension, also with 60% opacity. In the heimdall drawing I used the highlight on top of the initial base line layer to give him loose hair strands. I hope this made any sense? I left the colors I used for each step.
I love it, the way you drew the nose is so good.

Color wise it's same principle, but sort hair doesn't do that distinct band of light longer straight hair does. You can still see it (red area) but the different directions of the sort hair tend the break the line. I find where I would put the light and break it into smaller strokes. Also if it's really short I would just follow the lighting of the skull.
I love the drawings you posted here nose nonnie! You got a great style.

I'm the other AYRT, my problem is that my hair always looks flat because giving it "dimension" is confusing to me. The way you shaded Heimdall's hair here >>304122 gives the feeling that it's actually made of complex shapes, it makes his braids look really good and convincing. I also just don't know how to achieve the right "flow" when shading hair.
I like what you did here too >>305305 it looks like Chris's hair is actually made of layers despite being so short.

I only got better with faces after I understood how to break the overall structure of the head, I hate suggesting this but Loomis does have a good method of structure for heads, proko has a bunch of videos on that. After you get that I swear it gets easier.
I think you are already on your way because I can see the guiding lines in some of your sketches. After that you just start stylizing and playing around with different types of faces. I sketched heimdall in the hope it would serve as an example but I realized I it turned out almost useless kek.
Anyway on A that's when I decided the face direction and expression, that little cross on top is the skull direction and eyebrow level, inspired by Loomis head structure. From there I sketch the features, trying to put the character's actual characteristics, like his eye shape, jawline, nose shape and all that. This is where I actually suck, when I try cleaning that up to D I tend to mess things up and I end up making the character too different from the original. I would continue cleaning and refining the drawing until I am happy with it which is never.
I included my past heimdalls to show how inconsistent I am when it comes to features, but honestly after drawing my husbando countless times I also found out you become better at this the more you draw them. I don't exercise as much as I should so I definitely suck when it comes to that, Heimdall 1 has a dorito chin and the wrong eyebrows. 2 has a small nose and I the wrong angle on his brows and eyes. In 3 I gave him fat cheeks.
You said you were struggling with eyes, when I struggled with specific things I would see videos and tutorials explaining the anatomy of it. Being quite honest with you I don't draw that much, I am a lazy bitch, I just try observing and seeing videos until something clicks in my head and I can see the form of the object in a way I understand it. Even looking at myself in a mirror helped me sometimes. After I get some grasp at the form I sketch variations of it, like the eyes on the left of the heimdalls.
I guess it's more about seeing the overall shape of it? You could try making simple cell shaded shadows without color to help you practice giving the hair volume and dimension. I made an example for chris.
The little short hairs he got on top of his head, they are like the tips of a long hair, little triangles, but they warp around his skull if that makes sense. So little triangles warping around a skull on the top of his head.
In II. Since his hair is so short most of the volume comes from his skull so I would follow the shadow of a sphere.
On III. I added some shadow to his pointy top hair, but I didn't go too far away from the original sphere shape shadow.
Adding midtones and highlights help to give it volume, like on IV., but try to keep the overall shape of the hair/head.
Heimdall's hair is hard to explain, he has 3 big braids plus some smaller ones to the side and some weird twist thing. I just try to keep the overall shape of things, like braids are big ropes entwined that wrap around the skull. They are weird and you can tell I didn't give it too much care in heimdall 1 and 2 kek. His hair is very tricky to be honest.

I am so sorry if none of this helps, I tried my best explaining but it's harder than I thought. I hope it helps somehow. I hope other nonnas can join and explain things better than me.

Be not afraid of bolder color choices anon. You'll be okay as long as you take a good look of the entire piece once in a while.

Do you use references anon? His pelvis is still missing, there's like a whole muscle section that's missing near his crotch. There should be a visibile narrow triangle-like shape that goes from his belly-button to where his thighs start in the middle of his legs (and where his penis would be). You can see it in most anatomy references like picrel.
His pecs look nice but his sides are very confusing. The armpit area is very difficult to get right imo so be sure to look up a lot of references because the muscles there get fucky. In any case there should be a clear oval-ish shape where his armpit would be, and several muscle lines going diagonally from under his armpit to the front muscles under his pecs, following his ribs. His thigh looks good but his calf anatomy is wrong.
I would advise you to start with normal linework for practice and not go straight to painting which can be more time-consuming and practice at your level should be frequent and quick-ish.

If you're struggling with rendering light and shadow, I'd recommend making a smaller copy of your lineart/sketch and doing a thumbnail of the colors there. Start with flats and then build structure with shadows (don't be afraid of tools like multiply layers) and then light ti make things pop.
Sounds basic, and probably things you've heard before, but doing a thumbnail of the painting will both help you get a rough sense of what you're rendering and reduce how much you need to think while rendering by giving you somthing to color pick off of.

looks like you're pretty good at picking out values. id say that the blue hair highlight sticks out unnecessarily, and since the only other blue or cool toned colour in her design is her eyes you might want to try to tie the blue in somewhere else, just so it's slightly more cohesive. the fur collar could do with some more contrast too, either making the whole thing darker or the shadows darker.

Nothing with a cutesy anime girl will ever be creppy unless you step on the body horror territory or similar. I really like the backgrounds and colors you used though.

No. 325109

I really like the atmosphere you have going here, the way you've drawn the girl / her design really fits with the bg! The only things I'd really nitpick is the lighting and texture. The lighting seem to come from behind her (the window) and above her (a skylight?) but I feel like the light is shining directly on her because nothing on her is as dark as the rest of the bg. You could try a b/w grayscale to see if the contrast on her is similar to bg. Maybe some more red highlights would make her pop as well? I noticed some on the hair. Similarly, the texture on the bg comes across as very pronounced compared to the character, which is understandably simplistic due to the anime/cartoonish style. Maybe you could apply a texture over her and see if it helps her mesh with the bg more. Overall, I think this is a really competent and impressive illustration, and I can tell you've improved a lot from your previous work!

For those who do traditional art, what pencils, pens, and pencil crayons do you nonas recommend? Nothing super expensive preferably.

No. 325757

I like to use the "mop and needle" technique (one tool that makes thick lines, one tool that makes thin lines). I'll start off with a 4H or 3H pencil (typically sanded/worn down so the stroke is wide and it doesn't dent the paper) and then a 0.3 mechanical pencil for the "linework." I also use various sizes of mechanical eraser to refine, and then a 2H or HB to block in value. I also like to use paper with no tooth whatsoever, bristol if it's something i intend to sell or display, or plain ol' copy paper if it's a casual drawing.

Late reply, sorry! You could probably try applying a noise texture and use the overlay blending mode at like 30-40% opacity. Or potentially try finding a dust texture using the same blending mode,etc. Not sure what programme you use, but CSP would have a good amount of free assets on the storefront you could play around with!

No. 326628

This looks really good! Only thing I can add is that you wrote it’s supposed to be from above but it doesn’t look like it. It looks like it’s at eye level. And the dust particles (?) are too bright. Otherwise it’s so good, i always struggle with lighting in my pictures and yours is perfect imo

No. 327987

NTA but yeah Procreate is just for Ipads. If you want to draw in a computer, the forever license for Clip Studio gets disscounted to $20 every spring & winter and it's even better. Then there's also SAI which is cheap (+ easy to find craked if you don't want to spent money), I find it too lacking in fuctions now but you can find tons of free brushes for it. I haven't tried it myself, but I have heard good things about Krita, it's free & from what people say it's similar to CSP and Procreate.

No. 328188

yes unfortunately only ipad, but like the other nonna said, CSP is really good that’s what i used before. i’m actually debating getting it also for ipad too just because there’s great brushes available thru clip studio assets. it’s hard to find good brushes for procreate

No. 328255

I think the appeal of procreate might not be the program itself but the fact that it's iPad only. drawing with a screen tablet is almost guaranteed to make your digital art better or more enjoyable, but people don't realise that and think it's all about procreate instead. Of course there's nothing wrong with the software nor with getting an ipad just for drawing. Just know that you have options.

No. 328386

Talking about iPad/screen tablets, am I the only one whose art is way worse when drawing on screens/traditionally VS when you use a blind tablet?
I swear the art chip on my brain turns off when I draw directly and makes me draw with the style/level I had when I was a teen, but then I use your run of the mil wacom tablet and I suddently can draw again. It bugs me a bit because sometimes I want to draw with pencils or watercolors and everything turns like shit, same when I try to use my friend's iPad.

No. 328391

I'm the same, honestly. I don't think it's wierd. It's just what you get used to. I can also paint irl but struggle to sketch. A reason I don't like screened tablets as much is my hand blocks part of the screen and makes it harder to see. With a Wacom tablet, my screen is still my computer monitor in front of me.

No. 331642

Your color tests look way more interesting that the actual drawing itself. While I can't give you tips on how to use acrylics, I think you seem too focused on drawing within the lines & coloring how you would do digitally (lines -> flat colors -> shadding). Try getting rid of the lineart, painting directly over the sketch, do fast quick strokes, don't think over the details too much (if you look at classic oil paintings closely, often the forms are just a few strokes that when looking from a distance, they give the impression they're complete/polished). The white lights on your test look pretty nice as well.

No. 331909

Get to know your paints. Acrylics tend to be shit if they're cheap, they go muddy really quickly if they're mixed because of the pigments used. If your acrylics are cheap, layer them when dry instead of blending or mixing the paints. Some paints are translucent, some are opaque. You can use the translucent ones for glazing, but it's hard to use opaque paint for glazing because even if you dilute the shit out of it it looks muddy (ofc if you're going for that effect, like if you're painting mist, it works great).
Did you gesso the surface before painting? If you want more control over your painting I really recommend that, it helps so much. It looks like you painted on paper, which isn't the best idea as it can't take a lot of water so it warps. You can get acrylic paper that's got more of a canvas texture and will be able to handle the paint better.
Do some studies with your brushes, ideally copy the same painting with the same paints and use a single different brush for each study, so you know what kind of look each brush will give you. You'll be able to get the look you want much more easily then.
Do you have any mediums? I have matte and gloss mediums which I also mix with metallic, glitter and glow in the dark pigments for paints that aren't shit. I also have a bunch of mediums to add textures. They're not expensive and you only need a tiny amount. If you want to continue working with acrylics get at least a matte and gloss medium and experiment with them, they can make a huge difference to a painting.
Lastly, paint like you painted your studies. A limited palette, bold lighting and lots of texture will give you a better result than over-blending and using every paint you own (I know you probably know this but it's tempting to keep adding more paints to your palette when it's not looking the way you wanted it to, and that normally makes it worse).

Your values are weak in most of your pieces so I think thats where youre struggling. I no you use more desat colors but I'm also a fan of desat and had the same issues with colors you seem to have. You can check the values of your drawings by completely desatuating your drawing. Our brains read the values first even if we aren't aware of it. Your rendering always looks fine to me but if you want alittle more I might suggest some bounce light.

No. 353249

I've seen your other stuff and I like your style. It's satisfying to look at, it must be the thick lines, though you could vary your line weight somewhat. You don't have to stick with this style if you don't want to, but people like it. If you think it's ugly that might honestly mean you're improving past the style (hopefully). Yeah I am not a color expert. I think it might be that some of the colors you used, like the green on the bike and the blue on Goku are very bright, but you used other more murky colors too (I don't know though). The girl's shorts are also pretty much the same color as her skin and as parts of the bike, which is a little weird. Dunno if it's a real piece of advice, but I think different materials should be a different enough shade/hue to differentiate each other. So the bike doesn't seem made of skin or her skin made of bike.
These are good, you should try drawing bodies anyway

pencil texture looks really nice. I love the texture in her eyes and on her neck, im usually not a fan of how you did the hair texture but it matches the way you did the eyes in a nice way giving everything a kind of soft shaded photo look. If you want to improve i suggest if you mainly draw with pencil on paper, get a hand mirror to check the proportions of your drawing as you go. When you draw your brain gets used to what you are looking at and causes distortions which make it hard to see errors. This is why digital artists "flip the canvas". You can simulate flipping the canvas with a mirror to check your art. Liquified some corrections on your drawing to show some of the distortions. I made the proportions a bit more realistic but if you were going for a kind of fish eye look on the face thats also fine, but the eyes are still a bit distorted to each other. Also the ear could use some work but i just suggest looking at a reference the next time you draw the ear.

I wanna keep doing value studies, but I feel like I am doing them wrong. I understand the concepts, but I don't know how to apply them, if that makes sense. I also don't know where to find good photos to study from, all of the ones I think look good have very similar values that mesh all together when I convert them to greyscale.

yeah unfortunately you appear to be doing the studies incorrectly. I recommend trying the simpler form of this study, using only three values(white, grey, black).

i draw more people but i ended up using environments to study values and i found it helpful. because i was used to drawing people it was hard not to want to use value to express form. example of my first environment attempt and then after watching a bunch of value and composition videos. values where further away means lighter and closer is darker can also be used with pieces where the subject is a person but its easier to conceptualize with environments sometimes. or it was for me.

I'm going to sound like a broken record in this thread but i struggled for years with colors and couldn't figure it out no matter how much i studied colors but it was because my values were shit. 1. study values 2. try and avoid same colors touching, i broke up ur guys clothes with some darker blues to break up value groups to make it more visually appealing. 3. remember that colors are visually affected by colors next to each other. ur figures desaturated with a slightly more saturated background made him appear more washed out. by desating the background he appeared a bit brighter despite me not adjusting his saturation. heres another helpful value tutorial i liked https://tips.clip-studio.com/en-us/articles/2893

No. 359856

I think your problem is lack of construction, flat rendering and lack of perspective.

No. 359863

well, you should start drawing from references!
there's a lot for you to work on but for the flat poses you go try gesture drawing. it's a timed exercise of drawing models, so the drawing itself isn't supposed to be perfect, what matters is the essence of the pose. from that you learn how to see things in more abstract forms which then help you with construction. you balance the dynamism of your pose with your knowledge of anatomy and that requires its separate study too. focus on figure drawing, you can pick up a course like proko's for example

Yor rendering is also making it flat, it looks almost like medieval art. There's no sense of depth because you've done the painterly equivalent of pillow shading. Where is the light coming from? Because looking at the background image you've chosen her face and front should be in partial shadow at least. The clothing also suffers from this, the collars of the undershirt and dress have zero interaction with the light or form- making it look like one of those printed tuxedo shirts. You could remedy this issue with your "eyes" by tracing over reference images (and breaking it down into simple 3D shapes) and then redrawing the trace freehand.
Speaking of the background, your paint over sticks out like a sore thumb because of the colours you've chosen- try adjusting them so they actually fit into the palette of the background- going more muted and greeny- brownish with the character's colours would have fit much better. Your anatomy is also poor, especially around the upper torso and head.
I'm suspecting a bucket of crabs from some of the more unhelpful anon's responses though.

Is it the troon who made the kiwi thread or the artist posting? I might go with the former because they both have the same retard post style

No. 359975

i think the one on the left has more potentential, but the one on the right looks more cohesive? bc the lineart and shadows tie everything together, the left one lacks that a bit. can easily be fixed with some more rendering and/or color layers on top to bring it together

This is a random collage of work from the past few months. I don't draw very often and I'm very lazy. I've been wanting to gitgud for the past 3-4 years now but alas, I am still very lazy. I have very poor habits when it comes to art as I tend to draw everything in an hour or two and then hibernate for the next month. I'm looking for strong criticism on aspects of my art that look ugly, lazy to a detriment, or even just trying advice on how to draw for longer without getting burnt out. yes I have shit taste, that will not be necessary to point out as I am aware, thank you.

I would give the colors some variety instead of doing shadows/lights in a darker/lighter tone of the base color, but the mute palette works for the gritty feeling these drawings have as well. Other than that I think they're very good, I have the same problem as you (I draw a bit 1-2 days and then I don't pick up a pencil in weeks) so unfortunately I can't give you advice on that.

Not fully directed at you but since some nonas here had some problems with colors, have you tried gradient maps? I'm not good with colors and they usually help me lots. Once I got the drawing around 80% done, I merge all the color layers, duplicate it, apply a gradient map and play with its layer modes; then I merge again and finish polishing the drawing with its new colors. Sometimes they completely change the piece's colors, while other times they can give you small accent colors here and there, it's pretty fun.
In picrel, the Kirby at the left is the original drawing, middle is original + gradient map 1 & the right one is original + g.map 1 + g.map 2. I think these examples are a bit extreme (mostly a hue shift / complete different colors), but it gives an idea on what they can do, gradient maps with layer modes can give interesting results.

I wish the jannies would let us make one already, the /ic/ one has men. I think one anon said the /ic/ server has a right-winger moid, which just sounds like a huge redflag.

No. 360320

I'd be willing to start a server, but I have no idea how to structure it. We should have voice verification I imagine.

No. 360321

I think having a general and artwork channel should suffice. And yeah voice verification should be mandatory. I asked the mods pretty please if they let us make one.

No. 360323

What about hand verification as well? troons can use voice modulators and where will you be posting the server link?

No. 360324

anons in meta are saying we can post it here? but i am not sure. I know that anons from other threads, like the fujo and game dev thread, have made their own and posted it in their threads before.

No. 360325

also, anon could make a protonmail acc and tell anons to message her there

No. 360328

yeah I don’t think servers are usually posted directly, the owner uses her contact to filter people first

No. 360333

There could be an open server just for the verification, and whoever passes it gets invited to the actual server?

No. 360334

You cant post discord servers directly on lolcow. I think it's better if the server owner makes a protonmail and asks anons to send verification they are women. That's how the gamedev nonnies did it.

I mean, I do want it, but I think I can speak for many of us when I say I just don't want it enough to bear the responsibility of admin, management, and potential schizo/troid filtering. It's ironic because usually you'd want someone normal to do such a task but in a catch-22 no normal person wants to do it. I've witnessed a fair number of times where the founder of some niche community especially on discord eventually reveals themselves to either be some deranged terminally online e-clown or tragically lost too much sanity from having to be terminally online to wrangle tards. Wish there was a good way to go about it but it's tough toeing the line between keeping out unwanteds and unproductive autistic gatekeeping, and anonymous mongolian kiteflying forum adjacency and fostering community don't exactly go hand in hand.

I'm going to be completely honest with you ladies, needing this many hoops just to post work on discord demonstrates exactly why /lc/ shouldn't have a server to begin with. What happens when the owner or mods doesn't like someone in server? Do they just pull a creepshow OP and dox/expose them in the threads? How are you guaranteeing that artist in the server won't leak things on the board for sake of having their own personal artcows or dumb vendetta's? Who's confirming that the owner/mods isn't schizo collecting this information themselves? The bottom line is that you need to have trust to run a successful art server and all of these hoops demonstrate, hell /lc/'s culture of being drama-focused in general, does none of that.

Not to shamless plug the /cgsg/ discord but you can get into a tried and true server right now for less and you don't have to worry about facedoxxing yourself to strangers, being outed as some evil terf, or being harassed by moids because they are all just gay men.

>pull a creepshow and dox us
The farmhands never doxxed creepshow only revealed her identity when she was caught self posting and so have many cows if you have forgotten is against the rules.if you don't want to be doxxed don't put in searchable information use a throwaway email account and post art to be critiqued not posted on your public accounts to be backtracked from
>won't leak things onto the boards
Don't act like a cow then.if you do then dont expect nonnas not to laugh at you.Many nonas have posted artcows from the servers they're in its not new.
>Who's confirming that the server mod isn't collecting information on you?
Same could be said for cgsg.dont share personal traceable information
>plugging cgsg ironically
Considering what a fagtard the enstarfag was,I would rather be outed as a terf than to share a server with someone who draws chicken scratchs and spergs on anyone who has a differing taste. Not to mention all the moids,you plugging it here either means you're a troon who's hand will out him out or you want to force nonas to join a server with coomer moids when they don't want to

Somehow I'm not surprised the discord filled with moids would be promoted by the terminally online 4chan edgelord that's so fucking annoying even the farmhands won't let them post their fujo discord on here anymore

No. 360438

The enstargfag got kicked for trying to infiltrate the server and had a public meltdown on 4chan yesterday, so /cgsg/ does turn people away and kick people who cause problems. I have been a member for a while, so I can say that gatekeeping is going on there. The slime guy Choob that keeps getting brought up is harmless though. He just talks about drawing and shares artists that he likes. I didn't even know he was MAGA until was mentioned here. Judging by how much it's being mentioned, it genuinely feels like a scare tactic by some vendettafag against the server.

I'm just someone whose been in there for a while, mods mentioned they changed the rule temporality so /lc/ doesn't have to post on 4chan, but they made entering the server require even more art because the enstarschizo posted nonshota to get in before revealing themselves to be the shota schizo that's been vendettafaging in the thread for nearly a year now.

No. 360440

NTA but are you a newfag, why are you defending a scrote so hard? the whole discord conversation started because anons were complaining about the lack of female-only spaces and how 4chan scrotes ruin everything with their coom, so it's normal they dont want to share a space with a scrote. I hope nonny makes a discord server eventually, because every time that /ic/ server gets brought up its related to gay drama.

No. 360441

Good because that schizo was so fucking annoying. How much art does it require? I have pages upon pages of drawings, mostly shit tho

No. 360443

What do you mean defending a scrote, I'm telling you what I have seen firsthand lmao I wish he was the big bad sperg in a pick-me cord so I could at least laugh about it, but it's just empty fear-mongering from spergs who I guarantee spends their times whining about being unable to find any good art communities while being too autistic to properly function in one. I wish there was an all female server too, but until then this cord is as good as it gets considering they only have 4 men at the moment.

Unless your traditional art is really good you might have to go elsewhere since they are looking for fully done digital artwork now. Blame the shotafag if you can't get in.

No. 360445

I looked up the thread on /ic/'s archive out of curiosity and all the art is pretty mediocre. As much as people want to join online groups I think it's best to take an actual class

No. 360450

it suffers from the same problem most female communities do, they are too scared of being genuine so they don't really give genuine criticism, only fake praise. Male communities have their own set of problems, but joining a shitcord full of moids that shred my beg art to pieces helped me improve a lot. It's honestly useless to join a discord if you want to improve, you aren't going to get real criticism.

It's hard enough to convince people to post their goddamn work to join an art discord as it is, pic-related is from their thread. Making people get burner emails and face dox to strangers and all this extra shit is insanity. It's not fear-mongering when it's the truth.
>scrote infested server

you can still get better using models, tracing is a helpful for developing muscle memories, figuring out ways to express 3d shapes 2 dimensionally, and just like using any reference you are learning even if you are tracing. theres nothing wrong with tracing, its plagiarizing thats shitty. tracing parts you struggle with or to supplement your skills can still help you improve. straight up tracing will never look as good as understanding shapes, but using models or tracing isnt going to be detrimental to learning.

No. 360478

God you thinking that complaining about being with a certain crowd equals to vendetta is so silly. You can probably understand not wanting permabegs who ask for likes in your community. Or tims pretending to be into female media. Why is it so hard to understand people just have preferences and tolerances different to yours kek. Genuinely, may cgsg prosper, you're probably filtering off people who don't like the right wing tolerance which will be good for your server.
