Don't draw what Nahyon said.

Draw a sword pierced by several knights in the snow.

How do you feel about being this "obvious" with your composition? One one hand I think it looks nice, it's a really pretty frame for an animated sequence, but on the other hand, since I can instantly notice the compositional trick used in the frame, I get the feeling of "psh I could have done that".
User avatar #71056 to #71053 - delphine (04/04/2015) [-]
That composition is used so frequently because it is visually appealing formula that works. There are other compositions besides this one that are also visually appealing. There are artists who like thinking out of the box. Good composition is essential for an appealing piece, but there's more that you need. The composition could be there but if it's thoughtlessly put together or of poor quality, composition doesn't help.

User avatar #71055 to #71053 - groulgarigon (04/04/2015) [-]
I think the "Well this is so obvious, it's cliche, so let's not do it" thing is something we seriously need to get over. (Really, I hate it when people try to avoid something that works perfectly because someone somewhere said it's overdone.) Yea it may be obvious to us, but the rule of thirds and golden ratio is there because it works and trying to reinvent the wheel just for reinvention's sake is dumb.

Compositionally you have a good thing going here and it's not any less marred by the fact the focal point is on the rule of thirds. I also like how you added balance to the composition. Balancing background activity with foreground activity was a good call and doesn't bring us immediately to the focal point which allows our eyes to roam around the picture for a while. Ultimately good job.
User avatar #71054 to #71053 - gameshredder (04/04/2015) [-]
Because I'm a fucking retard, could you explain what's wrong with the 'composition'?
User avatar #71060 to #71054 - alleksi ONLINE (04/04/2015) [-]
Absolutely nothing. It's a text book example of the rule of thirds. Vertically it's divided into three different segments of different colors. Bottom blue floor, middle orange city landscape (blue and orange also complimentary colors), and top black night sky. and then Horizontally you got the point of interest placed on one of the thirds, and then that sky scraper on the opposite end to balance it out.

It uses all the possible elements of the rule of thirds.

Listen up FJ Art board.   
For the itemsgame here on FJ, I'll add a pretty retarded Sanic-Chest!   
You're prolly guessing what I'd like you to do: Draw retarded sanics ;D   
I'll add them so people can get them as items on their profiles.   
Everyone taking part here gets a set of said chest + key so they can get the items with a little luck! (:    
I'll reply with two examples I made, note your items do not have to be animated! (but it's funny aswell)

What urban said: I'd work on your line art. I must recommend Paint Tool SAI (A crack of the full version) for line art. It's a great program for getting smooth lines in your drawings. It does other things, but that's all I use it for.

I am far too poor to get a tablet, as a moderator on this site told me to use it with that program

Hello FJ, I'm drawing a harpy for my boyfriend (it's his birthday tomorrow). I need some advice... What should I do to her... Erm... Lower part? I can't decide if I should give her a bikini or some other article of clothing, or just leave her all natural.... And also, not sure about the wings either. Should I curl them around her or have them spread out so it looks like she's flying? I'm about 50% done at the moment. She still needs a lot of work so I need help fast!
User avatar #71029 to #71014 - legendaryhero (04/03/2015) [-]
It's weird how there is so much difference between the quality of the legs and the face.
Did you use a reference?

For the lower part I would suggest...
Some kind of cloth like pic: prntscr.com/6p2cyo
but drawn in a different style and shape, maybe make it look shredded?

but since you drawn the legs quite well and you might not want to cover it
maybe you could draw some kind of patch on the frontvagina?? idk what its called lol

It doesn't really look like she is standing so I'd suggest spread wings?
#71086 to #71029 - iceduchess (04/05/2015) [-]
Heya! I actually finished the harpy yesterday before I got to see your comment. But thanks for the advice! I did end up drawing spread wings. I decided to leave the "frontvagina" uncovered (I also don't know what it's called lol). And I didn't use any references for drawing her, except for the horns. Those were a pain. Maybe next time I'll do that!

How does my anatomy here look? Don't mine the metal rods, it's just a design for an animatronic I wanna make. But anyways, is my anatomy accurate?
User avatar #71032 to #71010 - defectivedetective (04/03/2015) [-]
-The shoulders are too broad and stiff
-the arms and hands aren't right
-the pose is really really stiff and not very natural
-I don't know if you're going for that type of thing but the hips and legs might be a bit too fat.
-This might just be me but the neck is too curved.

If you want some suggestions, I don't have very much. A few of the ways I practice anatomy and poses is by doing gesture drawings and reference drawings when I have the time.

User avatar #71022 to #71010 - legendaryhero (04/03/2015) [-]
How old are you and for how long have you been drawing?
The anatomy is not accurate.
Now I have answered your question maybe we should try to improve it?
There are many books/tutorials and exercises to help you improve your anatomy.
Would you like to look into that or are you fine with not taking art seriously and just doing it for random fun? Either option is fine
If you would practice from a book and do it regularly then I would have so much respect for you. My anatomy isn't accurate either but I practice to get somewhere.

What are the books' names? It sounds kinda pretentious to say you can recommend "some books" rather than being straightforward.
#71028 to #71027 - legendaryhero (04/03/2015) [-]
Yeah didn't say those to start the conversation.
I asked if that guy actually wanted to go for it
why recommened books for nothing?
and tbh, I tried not to go straightforward because that always gets me downvoted because people can't take shit. Not even talking about the artist but also talking about anonymous losers who think they should think for said artist.
Only trying to help no need to call me pretentious. I am not a pro either. Why call him out on stuff while we can better make him find those out himself. Better than blind leading the blind, right?
#71030 to #71028 - Absolute Madman (04/03/2015) [-]
I just asked for the books names, since you haven't given it i'm thinking you're full of shit. I'm not speaking for the artist, tbh the piece isn't great, but the main reason you get downvoted is because you act like a holier than thou asshole about it. Stay mad faggot

exercises? just do life drawings or gestures
bla bla bla

"how old are you"
"better than the blind leading the blind right?"

"anonymous losers"
>wonders why he gets downvoted
User avatar #71035 to #71033 - legendaryhero (04/03/2015) [-]
How old are you?
So I know if he has time for much practice or not. A teen could have more time on his hands than a guy in his twenties who has to make a living. Also to know for experience, its just personal interest dude..

Better than blind leading the blind right?
That means that it's bad that people who have almost no experience giving advice to other less experienced. We shouldn't share bad habits with eachother. This would only slow us and others down.

Do what I say and I have respect for you.
Totally out of context. What I ment was: I don't practice much myself but it is very effective. I would have much respect for you if you could sit down and practice. In order to practice by yourself you need self disipline. I value self disipline.

Anonymous losers
Ofcourse I find people who go anonymous to call others out losers, oh what am I an asshole for thinking that, right?

Now put all your hatred towards me down and take a good night sleep or something.
It doesn't seem like you are thinking clear.

You have a good idea going, but what I see are alot of symmetrical single lines.

Parts of a body can't be summarized with long curved lines,I suggest looking into muscle anatomy to learn to accurately depict the subtle details of curves on a body's outline.

Hey guys! I dunno if you do requests or anything on here, but I'm looking for an artist to draw soviet style propaganda for me.

You will be paid, yes, and the art may be a little simple.

If you think you can draw something similar to this, I need your help!

Other examples:

Not sure if this is the place to ask either, but... Yeah...
