I'm just going to post any sketches or drawings that I thought weren't absolutely terrible. I took the photos on my phone so the lightning is coming from me not being able to block out my ceiling light with my body .-.
I'll probably post more things in this thread as I make them. Or something like that. :wub: Most of these I do in classes or at home when I'm bored.
I NO LONGER USE THIS THREAD, GO TO MY DIARY FOR THE NEW AND IMPROVED THREAD

Sleepover Ahri is the only Ahri needed. On another note, fingers and hands are actually the worst thing in the world.

Thank you very much!
I always have free time each day to draw so I think I'll have plenty more to share here :mrgreen:

Thanks ^_^
I don't think I have the dedication but you never know, it sounds like something fun to do so I might give it a go someday.

These are very nice - did you use a pre-existing image to help or did you do it by thought?

Thank you :D
Until you draw something a hundred times you should probably always use references. Anytime you see hands, boobs or feet I can guarantee that I wasn't able to get it right on my own at first. Sometimes I'll also recreate an image if someone shows me something really cute or something. Otherwise most of it is just from stuff that pops into my head while I'm bored :lol:

I like it when people mix humans with animals in their art it's so cute <3
Not sure if you'll get a quote notification for that but there you go :teehee:

Thanks a bunch ^_^ I'm glad you liked that one, it is one of my favourites for sure! I'll send you a mention if I do Ahri again, for now I'm too tired to keep drawing though

Nice. I like the ink and also the pirate one (it reminds me the pirate lady in Super4, is it her ?)

Two thinks you should change/improve I think. 1st, don't use paper with lines, it is disturbing for us to watch, and for you to draw. And 2nd, you need to train your arm and wrist to make straight, continuous lines. Most of your drawings have lines that look "broken", with thickness changing randomly.

Do you also draw non manga stuff?

Never seen Super 4 so I had to check what you were talking about but they do look very similar, she is actually just a visualization of a character from a famous /tg/ thread.

Thank you for the feedback, very much appreciated. I am going to buy non-line paper but all the things I've posted were done in my college notebooks while in class or on my workdesk at home. Didn't realise it was bad enough to be disturbing but I'll keep it in mind and use blank paper whenever possible. I totally agree on the 2nd, I have long arms and they get in the way everywhere and I can barely control my hand as much as I would like to. I've been trying to improve in my most recent ones but I agree it still needs a lot of work. Some of the broken lines and thickness changes is because I don't have enough room on my desk to actually turn the book so I have to awkwardly try and do different angles with the paper being in the same place the whole time, this is just because I'm lazy and haven't moved all my notes and school stuff out of the way though. Once again something I need to work on.

I usually stick to what I know, I like to read manga and play visual novels all the time and I usually wonder over to anime from time to time as well. The style isn't appealing to everyone but it is what I'm comfortable in. I've tried doing some old cartoon styles as well but I always seem to get proportions wrong or it just comes out looking unnatural in someway or another. The last time I actually took part in a dedicated art class was a good 7 years ago so thanks for giving me some areas to improve on! Also thank you for taking the time to look at them, I really appreciate it :biggrin:

I'm back and I've removed the book lines and after a good month and a bit of practise I've completed my transition to tablet and computer. This doesn't mean I will abandon paper drawings or the low quality pictures, so fear not. Anyway here is an apology blunt smoking picture for being away for so long practicing. Love you guys still :D

After using a tablet and playing in PaintSAI, I can only say that this is going to be my pinnacle in drawing very dumb things. Oh yes, would everyone be interested in coloured drawings as well?

You're quite good! You should really get a sketchpad or better paper to work on. You might not think it, but it makes a big difference, not only in aesthetics but it's also much better for drawing on and will showcase your work much better than loose leaf paper.

Thank you very much, your words help more than you know :mrgreen: I no longer use my notebooks since someone gave me feedback about the lines. For now I'm using a tablet and my PC but I'm still adjusting (My first time drawing electronically). I'm finding that everything just looks better without the poor quality paper and lines. I've got a proper sketchbook but I haven't actually had the chance to use it, I hope to soon in the future though! Feedback and criticism are very much appreciated and you seem like you know quite a bit about art (Judging from your posts on other topics), so any knowledge or judgment is great.

Your proportions look pretty good and you capture facial expressions very well. Your style is pretty cool IMO. I do think you should draw in a sketchbook with pen or pencil, though. Digital art is getting more popular and has over the last few years, but I don't think there is anything quite like the real thing and that you'll strengthen your techniques better with real paper.

I also really like the drawing of the girl smoking. Your proportions are great in that one, the expression looks great, and the detail on the shirt and neckerchief is really impressive.

I don't know if I'm going to go back and colour all the sketches I spent a quarter hour drawing. This thread is basically inactive now, if you want to discuss or whatever go here. (http://www.virtualteen.org/forums/showthread.php?t=2024100)
