    Draw until it hurts.

    Someone suggested I give this place a try, so after a few hours of looking a round I finally decided to make a post. I don't know how much, if anything I should offer in the way of an introduction so here's some info.

    I've been drawing for an embarrassingly long time. I mostly stick to pencil work because there are too many distractions on the computer, but I occasionally draw in photoshop. I'm aiming for a comic-book feel. I've recently been drawing far too many Satyrs. You'll see that later. I just feel like I'm not going anywhere and no one I know or DeviantArt is helpful.

    I like Purple.

    I'm a little confused about the "Copyright owner" thing. Is that always me? Or if I have art of a known character (fan art) do I list them?

    Most of the stuff in this post is the same character in an attempt to get him looking consistent.

    The last image is just to post something that doesn't have a satyr in it. The guy on the top right is supposed to have a normal sized head on an over-sized body.

    The first piece is my most recent thing 'finished' in color. Granted it was done in MSPaint, but the color and form is what needs the critique.

    The next one is three examples of satyrs by three different artists drawn by me. The first one is Kenthayle's Pan The second one is Booker's Greg and the one on the bottom is my version of Pan.

    3 is my most recent stuff. The backwards pose is from http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0823032329

    Then it's the self portrait 'speed paint'. Never drawn myself before it was kinda scary, but I suppose the point of coming here was the challenge.

    Sketches from The aforementioned book and the first book in this series. http://www.buddyscalera.com/comic_ar...nce/index.html

    The next one is a sketchy wip to try to keep myself to using blur or anything, just fun brushes and the eyedropper. Textures by http://hibbary.deviantart.com

    Into? I like watching them. I've dabbled but I'm not very good. However when I first started trying to develop a style years ago I was really into X-men Evolution and I think it shows.

    The people that lived in the house I'm at before seemed to have collected magazine subscriptions like toilet paper and neglected to stop paying for them. (over a year later) So I can benefit from Snowboarding and surfing magazines, Vogue and OK magazine. This is what I'm pretending are gesture drawings are famous people from OK. Then Nick Lachey and some tiny doodles.

    If it ever comes up, I use a .5 mechanical pencil with F lead and an 11x8.5 sketchpad.

    I think the Magic pic is close to done unless people have some things to offer.

    The thing about having drawn for embarrassingly long. I say that because I know crap all about art. I know who Albrecht Durer is. I've spent so long doing it and little time figuring out what I was doing. I can kinda get something that looks ok out of my process but there's no thought going into it. I just figured out the other day If I use blue to highlight something that's red-orange then eyedrop the blue area it's actually purple.. how dumb is that? :|

    Here's me trying to figure out the whole value thing and setting the later to color to color over it. (Stupid me didn't save the greyscale.) I went about it completely wrong at first just acting like I was shading the image in black and leaving the white in it. I 'fixed' it by multiplying some grey over it.

    P.S. She's totally a pregnant and a hydro-kinetic, Japanese-American, from a military family. The lighter patch in her hair is supposed to be a blue streak.

    And the reworked version.

    Good job on the reworked version, the spinning water looks really good. You seem to have a pretty good understanding of anatomy but doing more anatomy studies can't hurt

    This is something I did recently for a competition. I had 2 days come up with with something that showed movement. Using one of my characters who has telekinesis. (And is pregnant. Really fetish artists have to learn too. >.>) Didn't win anything but I was happy with it.

    Movement and dynamic poses are something I need to work on so this is an attempt to do so.

    This guy started out as a villain's henchman in my comic but he got his own fan base. The first appearance panel is one of the main reasons I realized... "Hey I should maybe practice drawing characters before they show up."

    Great SB!

    I really liked your prego standing comic, haha.

    We have the same book! It's downstairs so I don't remember the title but it's that Comicy one, right? My favorite are the pictures in the back.

    Just for shits and giggles. This is some stuff from High School. I didn't start drawing until my last year or so. 2001 is the year I graduated. I was 17.

    Scanning and compiling the stuff I did in the last few days for a real post.

    Now for some current stuff. The first one is just a bunch of character doodles. One being Nightcrawler from X-men Evolution. Of the top center couple, the female is the same character as the one in the purple dress from the old post above.

    The second one is both tree drawings and a monster design for my comic. Once again I didn't think to far ahead and only tried to design the darn thing a few days before having to draw it. It's an ent, basically. But I didn't want it to be upright, so it kinda looks like a squirrel. It's based on an Olive tree.

    And last, more of the same chick, her boyfriend and hands. Some my own, some from a book.

    I really like that last portrait you did, it really stands out in your sketchbook as a whole. It seems like his ear is off though, so I would be careful and do some ear/portraits with ear studies to help improve that. Keep at it, your improvement is really showing!

    That was about at "Oh crap it's the middle of the night, I should be asleep. POST IT NOW." I knew it looked bad but posted it anyway. Can totally fix it now and pretend no one saw it >.>

    I don't intend to do video game art but I figured drawing a background wouldn't hurt.

    Hey there, fellow purple fan!

    Nice SB, you sure draw a lot! That latest portrait of dr.Wilson is kicking all kinds of butts, good job! I like your somewhat stylized comic style, it's really pleasant to look at. I can't think of any crits, you're on the right track, so keep that going!

    I totally do. And this is just part of it. Thanks

    And another portrait, the wip this time. This will be Jason Mraz :B. He is standing in green water, hence the green face. Most of the brushes I've used for this and the last one are by EraserX.

    There's another go at the tree guy. This is part of a page from my comic, there's going to be people in front of it. Usually I do the comic in pencil so it's greyscale. I did it in color for a while but people hated it.

    I think I've seen you on DA. Your name and artwork seem kind of familiar.

    Keep it up! That Jason Mraz portrait is looking good.

    Possibly. I have two accounts. One for normal stuff and one for "fetish" stuff. This screen name is the same as my normal DA account.

    At some point I accidentally merged the painting with the background and didn't notice in time to be able to undo it.

    And finally, a speed paint to see if anything soaked in. Gave myself an hour. It's boring.
