Does anyone happen to have any good references for drawing muscular women? I'm trying to draw an "Amazon Woman" and the entire torso area is just ????????
I can do the arms and legs, but the rest is just beyond me. I can't seem to figure out how to do it or make it look nice
I already have a few references, but you can never have too many
User avatar #47218 to #47209 - delphine (02/11/2014) [-]
the best thing to practice with is drawing images of Olympic athletes. Those women are pure muscle with very little body fat and you could practice with how muscle sits under the skin (except the boobs, which are attached to the pectoral muscles)

www.amazon.com/Anatomy-Artist-Sarah-Simblet/dp/078

I got a lot out of this book. In order to be able to draw muscle well you need to know technical anatomy and how all the muscle connects to bone, and where fat deposits on women. Then practice by drawing images of muscular women. Once you get good at the technical stuff you can work on drawing the amazon type exaggerated figures you see in comic books.

Get familiar with drawing muscular men, then feminize the crap out of it
User avatar #47216 to #47212 - delphine (02/11/2014) [-]
Noooo. Women's muscle develops totally different than mens. Your drawings will end up looking like the women on the Sistine Chapel which essentially men with really awkward looking tits. Michelangelo was a master, but I swear he must have been gay because his women look as though hes never seen a female figure before in his life.

Was just a suggestion, I thought it might work. All my stuff has been smooth bodies and shine circles.
#47208 - adrilazzaro ONLINE (02/11/2014) [-]
So usually (by usually i mean always until now) i paint/draw do art irl, in the sense with a pencil and real paper and maybe cardboard for models and whatnot, but recently computer genreated drawings have caught my attention, because well they're so fucking awesome. I'm attempting to get into it and this is the first thign i've managed to produce (how do you make neat things with a mouse???) i quickly sketched this since it's a bit past my ideal bedtime but let's just say its meant to be one of those things you look at from a distance.
Before i get off track again, what programs, free or pirateable, would you reccomend. I do have one windows spirit tablet that i might be able to use for drawing but im still nifty using windows 8 and tablets. ok im done rambling. Any tips, ideas perhaps requests that i will probably never work on are welcome
User avatar #47268 to #47208 - Einsty (02/11/2014) [-]
I would recommend gimp. I myself preffer 2.6 out of habit, but 2.8 is good too. It works decently with a tablet, 2.8 actually has some calibraion tools and such. Also, it's free so no funds wasted if you want to give it a shot. Can read read and write into photoshop .psd format.

That being said, if you do not have a tablet with pressure sensitivity, invest into one. It can be small, it can be cheap, it will last you as long as you need (unless you downright wreck it).
User avatar #47213 to #47208 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]
Drawing with a mouse is hard. Most people do it with a tablet, usually with a tablet that's actually designed for digital art.

Sai is a decent program. Photoshop works too.

A commission i'm working on for a friends character, any advice or tips chums?

I'll probably update the picture at least once or twice on my own depending on what the client says so i'll keep yall updated!
#47243 to #47196 - theberserker ONLINE (02/11/2014) [-]
A quick update from the suggestions you guys have been nice enough to point out; the character's left leg curled up underneath himself seemed like a good idea in my head.....
#47240 to #47196 - phantomeins (02/11/2014) [-]
A couple of things are outlined that could be fixed.

The part about the edge and crossguard might just be that the blade is too thin, try making that larger before anything else.

Also, the sword has no bevel to it. To me it looks like it has no edge at all because of that, but that's a very easy fix that requires a couple of lines.

well they end pretty much right after the knee

the left leg is clearly there, though its partially obscured by the cloth hanging from his belt and the leg on the right is bent underneath his thigh; it was the leg he used to launch himself in the air

still stumpy

Ok so using my girlfriend's hehe help I started practicing body shapes & postures. I will draw something (porn, probably) and try to share it here. I'm looking forward to any comments (except Andre Herring, fuck that guy.)
This is my first time drawing bodies so all critique (constructive, motivational, deconstructive & demotivational) helps!

#47185 - caocao (02/10/2014) [-]
I forgot how to shade properly with Photoshop. I tried selecting areas with the lasso tool and changing the color balance or brightness, but I don't like the results, the shadows are too hard/sharp.
Is there a way to make the shadows softer other than with the blur tool?

Once I figure it out, I'll clean up some of the lines some more and try again tomorrow.
User avatar #47186 to #47185 - adunsaveme (02/10/2014) [-]
Do you blue the entire thing or just the edges of the shadow?

I also find a very low opacity/density(?) eraser works well for making it fade to light.
User avatar #47244 to #47186 - caocao (02/11/2014) [-]
I read something where people would blur the edges of the shadow. If you blur the entire thing it won't have sharp edges near the outline anymore.

Thanks for the tip with the eraser. I never thought of that.
User avatar #47215 to #47186 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]

Anyway so apparently photos count. I'd like to know what you guys think of this and if there's anything wrong with it you can notice.
User avatar #47210 to #47177 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
No focal point. Water droplets on a leaf are overdone. Needs more contrast and brightness if you have Photoshop or a similar program.
User avatar #47211 to #47210 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]
I thought it was pretty good, considering I didn't know what I was doing.

Why edit it in photoshop?
User avatar #47219 to #47211 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
Yeah, it's a great start.
Editing in photoshop can make that green greener and give you an eye-catching punch that you're looking for. If you're looking for it.
#47220 to #47219 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]
Thanks for the tip.
Is water on a leaf really overdone though? I wasn't really trying to achieve anything, cos it was the second time I'd ever even used an SLR camera.

Also here's another one. generic flower photo, but I think this is what you meant by focal point? I could probably edit it a little to blur the background.
#47221 to #47220 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
That's absolutely better. Look up the rule of thirds and you'll get it spot on. And yeah, water droplets are like, a really big thing.
And, though flower photos are generic, I've found that nobody seems to mind. Everybody likes nature photos.
User avatar #47222 to #47221 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]
Does this one have a focal point to you? The largest drop is definitely more in focus than the rest of them.

And I think it'd be kinda hard to take photos of stuff few people have seen before, or at least good photos. Cos if you could take good photos of it, more people would be tkaing photos of it, y'know?
#47223 to #47222 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
Are you missing the photo? lol
unrelated
#47224 to #47223 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]
er... yeah, not sure why it didn't upload.

This one.
#47225 to #47224 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
I think that's better, but remember that it's not necessarily what's in focus, but what your eye is drawn to. Everything in the picture could be in focus and it could still have a clear focal point. The focal point is defined more clearly as the main shape or part of the image that you would first see, or the part that defines the picture.
But yeah, there is a more clear focal point in that picture and I like the movement of the edge of the leaf. A picture should lead your eye from the focal point to somewhere else in the picture and the line on that leaf does that.
However, you may want to consider a more interesting or dramatic focal point. You might be able to do this by taking pictures at sharper angles; that picture would probably be a lot more dramatic if you took it at an angle that wasn't right in front of it. But I do know that it's your second time using the camera so it's not gonna be perfect.
pic unrelated
Note: rule of thirds doesn't always apply to portraits because the person should be interesting enough so that the viewer doesn't have to see it at a "thirds" spot
User avatar #47226 to #47225 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]
Thanks for your input. I haven't really met anyone with any knowledge on this.
#47227 to #47226 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
I learned it all from my high school teachers. If you're in high school and they have a photography/Photoshop class, take it. It's a blast and I learned a lot from mine. If you have any other questions or if you'd like me to critique anything, just let me know and I'd love to!
pic unrelated
#47230 to #47227 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]
I'm not in highschool anymore, so I dunno. The teachers didn't really know a whole lot about the subject. When I took some of these photos I had people who actually knew about photography asking me all this stuff like "what aperture/shutter speed/ISO" and I'm just like "uhhhh.... yes"

I know a bit about that stuff now, which is nice. I have a gallery with a few more of my best shots adunsaveme.deviantart.com/ if you want to check them out, and when I get a new lens, I can go out and get some new stuff.

You've helped a great deal. I'm slowly getting an idea of what I've done right and what I can do better, which means I might be able to go somewhere with this.

And I think this photo could be edited. I've definitely thought about it. The background is awful.
#47236 to #47230 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
Yeah, it seems like there's not enough contrast between the foreground and the background. If you were good at Photoshop you could probably make the background black and white and then increase the contrast in the foreground.
But if you're curious as to what the aperture and shutter speed is:
Aperture determines where your focus is. Is the thing close to you in focus, or the thing far away in focus? I don't know how you specifically can adjust it because I don't know anything about your camera, but that's the basic idea of what they'r asking.
Shutter speed is how fast the camera closes light in to capture a picture. The faster the shutter speed, the faster you can catch moving objects, and the clearer they will be, even though they would be blurry with an otherwise slow shutter speed. However, when the camera captures the light faster, if also means that less light gets in, which makes for a darker picture. So it's really about knowing your target and what you're shooting at.
If your camera is digital, the auto setting usually adjusts it for you, but it's really good to know how to adjust those settings, especially when you start working with heavier and more complex equipment.

#47238 to #47236 - adunsaveme (02/11/2014) [-]
I've messed around with the settings a bit and I've got a basic idea of it.

Just out of interest, is 'long exposure' an ISO thing, or a shutter speed thing?

In case you were wondering, my camera is a Canon EOS 1100D, but I think most of my photos were taken with a Nikon D60, if it matters. i don't think it does. Both models are pretty much the same from what I've experienced.

Pic sorta related, it was taken with the Canon.

Those pics are mine, btw, me and my mom do a lot of posing and shooting lol. I'll check out your DevinantArt when I'm not dead tired, but it was awesome talking to you.

Thanks for the help man, really. If you have a DA, I'd love to check it out. Those are some great photos.
User avatar #47266 to #47239 - biblioklept (02/11/2014) [-]
I actually don't have a DA. Long exposure is a shutter speed thing and it can be pretty tricky. The pictures are not all my work, though (seeing as the subject is me so someone has to take the photo). My mom is really great with lighting. Nice turtle picture.
User avatar #47287 to #47266 - adunsaveme (02/12/2014) [-]
You should give DA a shot, cos it's a handy place to keep one's works and an easy way to share them.

Slim, tall, medium length black hair, eye mask similar to Robin or Nightwing.

Costume: Black tights, utility belt, blue lightning bolt design. No cape.

Weapons: Retractable staff and other gadgets (this character is very inspired by Robin if it's not obvious)

Powers: Super speed, electrokinesis

So, while I go mucking about making this, tell me why you felt the need to design a super-hero. Is this an exercise, or something you'll expand on? You said OC which suggests some sort of endearment with this character.
User avatar #47124 to #47123 - gmarrox ONLINE (02/10/2014) [-]
I've always had an interest with making my own comic book superhero, but never had the artistic ability. I plan to right a short story and see if I can expand it into a book, or a comic storyboard, and maybe an artist will be able to flesh it out. Or I can figure out how to not blow at it.

The design is based on my character from DC Universe Online. The name Neurovolt was taken, but that was his intended name.

A quote from him?
User avatar #47131 to #47130 - pixmantle (02/10/2014) [-]

Hmm... "The skills of the Robin, and the powers of a God. I am not to be taken lightly" or anything along those lines.
#47137 to #47133 - pixmantle (02/10/2014) [-]
I thought of a similar but more original sounding line. I used to draw a lot when I was really young, I could probably do okay if I really tried, but I only sort of tried, so here you go.

A serious line with a not-so-serious drawing is a little goofy, but oh well.

I've had a dilemna as to whether or not to have him exist in a separate universe of my own creation, or the DC universe. I'm still working on an origin story for the former, but in the DC storyline, his origin story is along these lines:

Batman (Bruce Wayne) is dead (old age) and Terry McGinnis (Batman Beyond) is retired. Dick Grayson (Nightwing, ex-Robin) reinitializes the "Batman and Robin" duo with himself and a protege named Keith Aren. Aren becomes Robin and serves under Nightwing, learning the martial arts and gadget proficiency and technical skills. On a mission, he is captured by Splicer (OC villain, Neurovolt's nemesis). Splicer intends to convert Keith into a mindless servant by implanting a device into his brain. But realizing that he has no superpowers, Splicer combines Keith's DNA with DNA collected from other retired/deceased heroes, giving him electrokinesis and super speed. Nightwing manages to save Keith, but then sends him away, fearing he is incapable of mentoring him now that he has powers. Neuroslash starts vigilante work while trying to locate Splicer (for revenge, or to be made normal again, I haven't decided yet.) he then gets recruited by the Neo-Justice league.
