Anybody good with photoshop out there? I'm trash with it

Basically, if you feel like doing something for a fellow FJer, it would be really nice if you whipped up a custom Carl Brutananadilewski (from ATHF) for me.

It's basically Carl, except he looks like the Dude, and he has a caption that says, "Well, that's just your friggin' opinion or somethin'".

someone asked for an origin story, so I scribbled one up really quickly.

I won't post it all here, I don't want to spam the board.

16-or-something years of art fuckery and it's all come down to this.

I draw random things when I'm bored/when I feel like it, and there are usually some common themes across different drawings. I don't necessarily do it on purpose, it just sort of happens. I only recently started drawing again. When I was younger (6-11) I used to draw a lot, but I stopped when I was 12 or 13 or so. My drawings were never quite the same as the other kids. Even as young as six, I would tend to draw generally morbid things. I would imagine monsters and put them on paper. My teachers and parents thought my drawings were a little weird for a kid as young as myself, but they didn't think too much of it. But as I got older, in addition to the monsters, I started drawing their victims as well. The monsters got more vivid, and I drew more and more blood over time. I was about nine when I started doing this, and my teachers didn't appreciate it. I constantly got in trouble with teachers and my parents for drawing graphic, violent and generally inappropriate scenes. Though my drawings have never been particularly skillful, the detail was enough to upset people. After a while of drawing monsters killing people, I started drawing people killing people too. One drawing I got in particular trouble for was a man in torn jeans, black boots and a dirty leather vest holding a pump action shotgun and standing over a woman in white dress, laying on the ground, with her head blown off. I had drawn blood, brains and skull fragments in as much detail as I could. I almost got suspended for that drawing.

Cut to now, as I said I hadn't drawn in years, but I recently started again. My art is still fairly morbid, but not in the same fashion as what I drew when I was younger. I still just draw whatever comes naturally, but now, instead of murder scenes, I just draw the things I see when I close my eyes. My skill is still nothing special, but I feel like I have an at least somewhat unique art style.
Today, I starting thinking about what I used to draw and what I draw now, and I wondered if there's any psychological meaning to it. Why have I always felt most comfortable drawing violent and morbid things, even since I was a little kid? My reason for making this post is because I want to know if anyone here might know anything about analyzing drawings for subconscious meanings. I want to know if there's a reason I create the things I do.
Also, I'll post some of my recent drawings if anyone is curious to see them, but I warn you, they're really not very good.
#71897 to #71893 - fefe (11 hours ago) [-]
i kinda drew the same, nothing abnormal about an 11 year old being a little edgy now and then
drawing monsters is something all young boys do, some more violent than others
when it comes to people killing people, i bet it's because of movies, games, media

lemme see ur drawings and i'll go full freud on them
#71899 to #71897 - flutterfire ONLINE (11 hours ago) [-]
Here's a few of my drawings put together. Like I said, they're not particularly good, but it's just what naturally happens.

The one in the bottom right makes me think of this creepy shit.
#71903 to #71902 - flutterfire ONLINE (7 hours ago) [-]
You're not wrong. It was actually somewhat inspired by this image, by the same artist.
User avatar #71894 to #71893 - alleksi ONLINE (12 hours ago) [-]
Maybe you were influenced by violent movies/television as a kid.
User avatar #71895 to #71894 - flutterfire ONLINE (12 hours ago) [-]
Maybe, but that doesn't explain the monsters, since I was drawing them long before I was allowed to watch anything violent or play any violent video games.

I'd like a Minecraft skin made for me with detail similar to this.

Basically the same thing but with red/dirty blonde hair/beard and a white dress shirt with a black tie.

Unfortunately, you will never be able to draw super good without sinteach.
I tried to draw super good once, and the girl I drew didn't even have a penis.

Anyone got any good colouring tutorials? I really need to learn how to do that.

aye mang not gonna lie, id like to see something youve drawn with a more dynamic pose. all your drawings ive seen so far are the same 3/4 or front view. not that its bad, they still look great
User avatar #71878 to #71876 - kortstuff ONLINE (04/26/2015) [-]
Yeah, I'm trying. Just never pleased with them.

I personally love this picture. The other ones you took don't look as real, like I feel like I'm actually there, overlooking this railway.

Are these taken with a phone? I personally find 4:3 to be kinda jarring for photographing, if these are taken with a phone then you should be able to change that from the settings.
User avatar #71880 to #71863 - pickaxe (04/26/2015) [-]
took a normal digital camera,An old DSLR Nikon D200 with a zoom lens with me,also,my phone.

I think this was the regular Digital camera,HDR is all I can remember from the settings,but since the train is moving there's bound to be a rather low timething going on.
I don't tamper with the standard ratio.More pixels give more to work with.I can always cut stuff out later.

eh,I guess that's it with my favorites that didn't make the cut for the calendar.Maybe more will come,seeing as some are still pending.

I should really get a newer camera...I can't even preview on the display and the viewfinder is bollocks...I'm basically working blind here

How do you guys deal with art thieves, on or off the internet?

One of my sketchbooks when missing at school and "consequently" this one bitch who couldn't draw for shit SUDDENLY gets good at drawing characters who look suspiciously like mine. I've told the art teacher about this but there isn't anything he can do without proof, so my plan is to call this bitch's mother and ask for my sketchbook back.
I'm just worried she's already done something with it, like print out some pages that she's going to continue to trace over or scan some pages and post it on the internet, claiming it's hers. What if I'm not the first person she's done this to, what if she does this kind of shit all the time? I feel like shit thinking that she might be getting attention for other people's art and there isn't anything I can do about it.
User avatar #71871 to #71836 - delphine (04/25/2015) [-]
Challenge her to draw the things again in class. Then you draw the same thing. Without the reference pictures to work off, she won't be able to replicate. Call her out on it.

As for the internet, I never post any of my professional artwork online. I'll submit my portfolio items with watermarks on my own website but that's it. I never post anything on Deviantart either anymore. It's too easy for someone to steal an image once it's been uploaded.
User avatar #71842 to #71836 - instalation (04/25/2015) [-]
Jokes aside though I just scan all of my shit and post it somewhere. Someone has used one of my drawings once, and I was able to prove I made it because I had documented it earlier before.

I didn't realize Gearboii was still in school.
#71838 to #71836 - Nahyon ONLINE (04/25/2015) [-]
Are you dealing with money ? no ? of course not. So, what's the matter ? you're just losing sheets of paper, they can't steal your experience, just continue getting better and watch your shit you donut.

Especially this case, it sounds like we're talking about some crappy pencil drawings, how would anyone care about them being published by you or her. Unless you're famous in some big scene with REALLY memorable characters, no one would notice or care it anyway.
>there isn't anything he can do without proof
use signatures and watermarks, write your name on everything'n shit. easy as that. if someone steals your shit, someone steals your shit, regardless of what it is.

If we're going further; If there is some account who uploads the same shit as you and erases your watermark/signature, you can go to most websites support and if you're valid enough for them ( dates of uploads and creation of your works, you appear to be serious enough or good enough to make it worth paying attention to or shit like this ) they get rid of these people. I have no personal experience but I've seen that happen a lot.
If you aren't too fucking touchy, go and talk to a person that you feel like took reference from you / traced you and insist that he gives you credit and shit, if he doesn't; go back to first advice.

#71844 to #71838 - fefe (04/25/2015) [-]
I get that you don't care about what happens to your drawings because you actually have enough people know about you that it can be traced back to you, but other people don't have that luxury.
And so what if they aren't making money off it, that still shouldn't make stealing it and claiming it as their own okay.
User avatar #71845 to #71844 - Nahyon ONLINE (04/25/2015) [-]
It's not that i defend this stealing anyhow but what else can you do ? you have to watch for yourself since no one else is going to do that.
>stealing is a crime and crime is not good
What do you want, a law that forbids crime ? jeah, that'd solve the problem.

I don't usually do fan art, but I just finished this.
User avatar #71850 to #71834 - foreveranonymous (04/25/2015) [-]
I think this is fantastic, despite not knowing who that is. The console and controller look great, and the stylized face really works
However, I feel as if the arms are too short. Typically with folded arms they come below the pecs/breasts, and your arms are at the same level. i.imgur.com/wAGok9w.jpg Also, Zeru is right, the sleeves are kinda bizarre. I hope this helps, I'd like to see more
User avatar #71835 to #71834 - zeruaargi (04/24/2015) [-]
What's it fanart of? and It's actually pretty good but the shirt sleeves are weird.
#71872 to #71835 - forgottosave (04/25/2015) [-]
It is of Segata Sanshiro, he is from some Sega Saturn Commericals that are hilarious and you can find them on youtube. The pose is from a picture, and the sleeves are a bit weird I agree, I will probably go back and fix them.
User avatar #71873 to #71872 - zeruaargi (04/25/2015) [-]
The problem is that they seem kinda jagged and sharp and not so much a fabric that is draped over a shoulder and arms.
