Just did this. I am starting to write a light novel, and my friend wants to start developing a game, so this is one of my characters. I'm not great at sketching, but I think I did alright here. Comments/opinions/critiques?
User avatar #57001 to #56973 - lolidragon (06/23/2014) [-]
I like it but her left arm seems short. Is it just the perspective?
User avatar #57009 to #57001 - blargtastic (06/23/2014) [-]
Fairly certain it's short then. I'm not bad, but I'm not great at drawing. It's a work in progress, so again, open to critiques. I'll try something different when I draw again. Thank you.

Sorry with all these noob/dumb sounding questions everyone. Anyways, should I draw on paper first before using my tablet or would it not make a difference?
User avatar #56972 to #56970 - pickaxe (06/22/2014) [-]
as in,the same picture?Maybe,if you're more comfortable with sketching on paper.

My work computer has 2 monitors, but there's a real lack of 3840*1080 backgrounds out there, is there a quick way to combine 2 regular images side by side into one image?

When I draw using a reference, I use a style like this. My question here is, when I do that am I doing more work than I should? Because I don't know how to draw references without a grid, but if there is an easier way if it is more work I would appreciate some tips.
User avatar #56950 to #56935 - ohmeghon (06/22/2014) [-]
in my opinion drawing from grids gives you no improvement of talent whatsoever.

Fun idea: Take one square of that butterfly and draw it in higher, creative detail in your grid below to emphasize on textures and detail. This is an example of a study - a focused session on giving you training for drawings you will do down the road.
User avatar #56965 to #56950 - thekillerwalrus (06/22/2014) [-]
Do you know if those wooden drawing figures would be good? Instead of using a grid?
User avatar #56969 to #56965 - ohmeghon (06/22/2014) [-]
Absolutely.
User avatar #56937 to #56935 - alleksi (06/21/2014) [-]
I'd say that it is definitely more work than what is needed. Additionally it definitely wont help you improve.

Drawing from reference isn't about copying something line for line, like you would using a grid system.
When drawing from reference, it helps to have some sort of understanding of the thing you are drawing. Say you're drawing a human from reference, it helps tremendously to know how to simplify the body (there are tons and tons of ways and guides for that). You start from simple forms and use the reference to check that your proportions and angles are right. seeing if your proportions are wrong is something that you'll get better and better over time. There are both traditional [pen measuring] and digital [flipping the canvas, overlaying the reference image with your drawing] tricks that can help you out with that. Then you use the reference to slowly build up more and more detail. That's what "construction" is, you start from simple forms and you build it up from there.

For example drawing that butterfly. You would/should start with that tube-like shape for the body and the triangular shapes for the wings and then work your way up from there. You wouldn't/shouldn't start with all those little details in the wings.

also, as a general advice, avoid using other peoples drawings as references.
User avatar #56964 to #56937 - thekillerwalrus (06/22/2014) [-]
So drawing without a grid is a good way to improve?

And the only peopels drawings I use as references are comic books that's all.
User avatar #56966 to #56964 - alleksi (06/22/2014) [-]
Yes.

Using professional artists' work for reference is a good way to get inspiration but wont necessarily help you generate your own distinguishing style.
User avatar #56968 to #56966 - thekillerwalrus (06/22/2014) [-]
I know, and I don't mean like details I mean like how the scenes in teh panels look. (e.g. over head view, side view, front view, back view)

Bit weird out of context, but here you go anyway
#56918 - alleksi (06/21/2014) [-]
out from the army, finally. Maybe I'll start drawing now. maybe. Dunno how long it took to draw these but I definitely need more line confidence, a bigger tablet would probably help with that.
To be honest I'm pretty happy with these, the bottom right one was the first one I did and didn't turn out so good, but the rest I like. Maybe I'll hate them tomorrow morning, who knows.
User avatar #56933 to #56918 - thekillerwalrus (06/21/2014) [-]
Those look really good. Do you use references to draw them or just do it with your head?
User avatar #56936 to #56933 - alleksi (06/21/2014) [-]
Thanks. I used posemaniacs.com for references.
User avatar #56967 to #56936 - thekillerwalrus (06/22/2014) [-]
Awesome thanks this will be useful. Also keep up the good work :3=
User avatar #56920 to #56918 - citruslord ONLINE (06/21/2014) [-]
Very nice, what kind of tablet do you have?
#56923 to #56920 - alleksi (06/21/2014) [-]
This kind. it's pretty small as you can see.
Wacom bamboo MTE-450 I think, I bought it almost 7 years ago. I believe it has been replaced by much never models and is not for sale anymore.
User avatar #56924 to #56923 - citruslord ONLINE (06/21/2014) [-]
Likely, my wacom bamboo fun from about 5 years back isn't produced anymore, they change every couple years. I don't like their current line. I'm actually looking at putting together a DIY cintiq using a monoprice tablet.
