FINALLY! i was trying to upload this earlier, but fj was telling me it was too big and stuff. i got bored earlier, so i spent about 2 hours making this silhouette of batman drawn in pen.
User avatar #51642 to #51637 - adunsaveme (03/25/2014) [-]
It's gud.

Though in case you didn't already do it, you can open it in photoshop, shrink it down a bit (might have to select all, copy to new layer and ctrl+t) and trim the edges. Takes a few seconds.

There might be sites for it, i forget. They tend to do kinky things to the quality.
User avatar #51645 to #51642 - faithrider (03/25/2014) [-]
for what purpose?
User avatar #51691 to #51645 - adunsaveme (03/25/2014) [-]
Resizes it and reduces the amount of pixels so you can post it on FJ, while retaining most of the quality.
User avatar #51735 to #51691 - faithrider (03/26/2014) [-]
oh i see. because there's a bit of a border by accident and because i was having the issues with the sizing?
User avatar #51736 to #51735 - adunsaveme (03/26/2014) [-]
Just cos of the sizing. It's easy and it works.

I have to do it for photos taken with an SLR, so I dunno.

I didn't notice a border.
User avatar #51737 to #51736 - faithrider (03/26/2014) [-]
one side there is a border because i didn't center it on the scan bed very well
User avatar #51738 to #51737 - adunsaveme (03/26/2014) [-]
Ah, I see it.
It's not that bad.

This is exactly what I'm looking for for this project I'm working on.

Looks like Maya. Thought it could be a lot of programs.

I have a WIP of Daredevil I wanted to share with you guys; heavily and visibly influenced by Alex Maleev, if you know who that is. If you like it I'll also post the finished version.

Used Sketchbook Pro 6 on mac-felt tip pen.
User avatar #51603 - faithrider (03/24/2014) [-]
i was going to post a picture of this freehand silhouette of batman i just sketched, but it says it's too big... how can i show off...
#51605 to #51603 - groulgarigon (03/24/2014) [-]
Too big for scanner? Take a picture?
User avatar #51606 to #51605 - faithrider (03/24/2014) [-]
no i have the image scanned to an sd card, but fj says the image file is too big to post.... I GOT IT, i'll post it as content and then link it here
User avatar #51612 to #51606 - ohmeghon (03/24/2014) [-]
open it in a different program and re-size it amigo, or scan it/export it in a smaller size
#51607 to #51606 - groulgarigon (03/24/2014) [-]
Nah nobody follows links. Send me the file.
User avatar #51608 to #51607 - faithrider (03/24/2014) [-]
how? and apparently the content upload doesn't like it either...
#51609 to #51608 - groulgarigon (03/24/2014) [-]
Upload it to imgur and send me the link. I can shrink the file size for you
User avatar #51610 to #51609 - faithrider (03/24/2014) [-]
i don't have imgur...
#51611 to #51610 - groulgarigon (03/24/2014) [-]
You can upload without a profile there. Just google imgur and it'll ask if you'd like to upload from your computer.
User avatar #51636 to #51611 - faithrider (03/25/2014) [-]
i found a way to resize the file, but it still says it was too many pixels...
#51640 to #51636 - groulgarigon (03/25/2014) [-]
Hmm... what resolution did you scan it in as. It should be measured in so,ething called DPI
User avatar #51644 to #51640 - faithrider (03/25/2014) [-]
got it done. scanner maxed out at 600dpi. trust me i sell printers/scanners for a living, i know what dpi is.
#51646 to #51644 - groulgarigon (03/25/2014) [-]
Sorry I couldn't possibly have known that. But nice to see you got it done. Is not that bad.
User avatar #51647 to #51646 - faithrider (03/25/2014) [-]
thanks. glad it turned out so well. if i had messed up i might have scribbled it out, and broke down and cried and given up...
#51648 to #51647 - groulgarigon (03/25/2014) [-]
I understand the feeling. lA Digital work is liberating in that regard~
#51601 - anonymous (03/24/2014) [-]
I thought I would play with some screentones for the first time, this shit is hard as hell and my scan sucks. I don't understand how to get the lines smooth and keeping the contrast. This is a4, Maybe your sepposed to use A3 for manga, beats me. And since this was timeconsuming as hell I didn't have time to finish the last "panel" where a giant fucking killer machine would be. This is alos not in any story, just didn't know where else these kind of screentones were used...
User avatar #51602 to #51601 - nocturnalemission (03/24/2014) [-]
This is really cool, are the tones digital?
One thing that might need fixed is the light source coming from the other room on the first frame, I don't think it would just stop at the doorway, it would continue off frame.
And paper like A3 or A4 is just a preference thing.
#51613 to #51602 - anonymous (03/24/2014) [-]
Indeed they are, I used manga studio, I got the demo cause I didn't want to fiddle with cracking and shit, just wanted it done.
You're right about the light source, my first idea was having the girls shadow showing on the floor before a entirely open door but then there would be no reason for her sneaking and when I screentoned I forgot haha
Rigt now it looks like the lights inverted in the firs frame I guess, thanks, its not only good advice for screentones but drawing en general.
I do have sheets of A3 but they are more gritty and my ink sinks into the grit of the paper and it looks like shit so I used bristol board as I usually do for ink. Can't say they are perfect either, my brother gave me som sheets he found at his job which they were throwing out, perfectly slack papers with an extremely flat surface and really heavy mass, too bad I don't know what they're called
User avatar #51597 - kkitkat (03/24/2014) [-]
artists.pixelovely.com/practice-tools/animal-drawing/ you guys might find this useful for practicing you drawings, I certainly will, first you choose out of the four boxes "hands, animals, life, portraits" then refine your terms and boom! You have a cool little slide show with a limit on how long you can spend sketching it, or you can pause it

Hey, I want to get into drawing and stuff, could anyone give me some tips?
#51604 to #51579 - groulgarigon (03/24/2014) [-]
Find something you love. Draw that. Master it. Move on to something else. You'll eventually get to a point where you are looking for your own improvement. But you have to build your love for it first.
User avatar #51598 to #51579 - ohmeghon (03/24/2014) [-]
that is very vague.. but I love giving out tips. What genre do you want to practice in? Pencil? Digital? Painting?
#51599 to #51598 - magicianbl (03/24/2014) [-]
Pencil, preferably.
#51600 to #51599 - ohmeghon (03/24/2014) [-]
Excellent, that is my forté. I draw the body and figure, with a particular love of head busts.

My first tip to you, is to find an inspiration - be it real life drawing, a cartoonist you love (such as the artist of the Gorillaz, or Tank Girl) or an anime style you love. (Look at cartoons like adventure time, or fullmetal alchemist, Idk what your preference is but popular cartoons are a fantastic starting block.)

Practice these styles that you love, because they will inspire you to improve. The number one thing you cant be afraid of though, is to make it look different. Remeber to BASE your style on theirs... dont try to replicate it exactly or else you will squander anything you may be learning. Everyone draws differently, and your style is what you should be searching for more than anything at the beginning.

Once you start, do new things. Every drawing should be a learning curve. Try shading on one, bold lines on another, facial expressions on another, draw a character being blown by the wind, one reaching for something, etc etc. Every drawing is work. Every pencil stroke practice. You will get better, but dont be afraid to make really poor drawings to begin with! Everyone starts off poorly first, it's a hurdle you have to jump over on the path to deecent art.

I still have a long way to go, a very long way, but attached is a drawing made referencing about four Gorillaz pictures. Use everything you can for reference, because references are the best place for a newbie to start, and never stop practicing!

Draw porn, make a tumblr and follow art blogs like anatomicalart.tumblr.com/.
And just start drawing, if you do it enough it just becomes second nature, but it takes a long time.

Hi guys, anybody knows a good fine point permanent paint markers with a wide collection of colors, especially for plastics, rubbers (all types) and such?

I'm trying to paint on a plastic watch and its rubber strap. I already have Sakura Permaque fine point markers, and have tried it on rubber phone case, and it's not really that good and its scrub off after some weeks (When I tried to scrub it off with wet towel). Haven't tried permanent Sharpie or fine point Stabilo yet since it's a rarity here and expensive since it's imported.

your expressions are far more lively than I can whip up, so you're on the right track. That guy is full of character, and you should feel proud.

What kind of tattoo did you have in mind?
You should ask for these things directly.
User avatar #51531 to #51530 - sandyravage (03/23/2014) [-]
I have the general idea in my head, but I can't decide on how I want it to look.
I'm terribly awful at art. Drawing, painting, photoshop, etc. I do woodworking and stuff like that, but give me a pencil and a piece of paper, it's all Greek to me.

I was thinking of the background looking like a page torn out of an old book or scroll. In large, black font with gold inlays, it reads Against All Tyrants, with an arrow between the words
Kinda like this:
Against All

If that makes any sense.

User avatar #51533 to #51531 - nocturnalemission (03/24/2014) [-]
I might be able to give a quick sketch when I'm done with a thing.
But keep asking around, and remember tattoo artists will work with you on a design if you if want.
User avatar #51534 to #51533 - sandyravage (03/24/2014) [-]
I appreciate it, bud.
#51542 to #51534 - nocturnalemission (03/24/2014) [-]
Before I go too far into this, can you think of more specifics?
A certain font, how much fold, how torn up the paper/scroll, do you prefer it long like a sheet of paper or wide like a flag?
User avatar #51615 to #51542 - sandyravage (03/25/2014) [-]
What you have right there actually looks great. Maybe a little more aged looking on the scroll? A thick font, but not blocky. Wider like a flag was what I had in mind. But the shape of what you have there looks great.
#51670 to #51615 - nocturnalemission (03/25/2014) [-]
Hope this can give a general idea of what you're looking for.
And remember if you get an actual tattoo, the artist will help you on a design.
