    Raptorbane's Sketchbook

    So after a forever of thought I've decided to try being active or something on this website. I've got to say, from what I've seen so far it seems like this site is just -full- of amazing artists, and I have to admit it's a crushing blow to one such as myself to be amongst such talented people.

    tl;dr I'm kind of nervous but I'm here to learn.

    I'm mostly a digital artist for my bigger things, but I sometimes do anatomy or object studies in my sketchbook (I often don't upload them because the quality is substantially less-than-standard to me). I also tend to be a dirty rotten smudger and so I've taken a liking to drawing in pen, as a mistake is easier for me to touch up in Photoshop than an enormous smudge is. Uuuuh I also have a nasty tendency to draw in an almost-but-not-quite anime style due to some incredibly stupid ideas as a 13-year-old. I'm working on trying to leave it behind for a more cartoony style, so any hints or tips on that would be -very- appreciated.

    Blah blah blah, here are some pictures, blah bleh bleh blah.

    That didn't even worry me in the slightest :T I SAW IT COMING.

    C: Thanks, I am well aware of just quite how much anime is frowned upon in just about any real serious art community (and colleges, and jobs, and dear lord if it's in a portfolio...), but I am trying to work my way out of it! It was a lot worse a few months ago :/

    I will definitely say that there is nothing nearly anime-ish about this pure cartooning to me! I love it you definitely know what you're doing, and your art is very stylized.

    Heh, thanks, but it's definitely got anime in it. Though it's most prominent in my human characters, I'm getting better at stylizing animals into cartoons, and I'm trying to work that into my people as well. It's just difficult because to me facial structure on people is hard to tamper with, it's always been so... set in stone, y'know?

    Hey, nice stuff!
    If you have troubles with the facial structure i'd advice checking out Loomis' Drawing the head and hands. It should be downloadable (legally) in pdf format.
    Keep it up!

    I can tell you were influenced by anime but you added alot of your own style in the images as well.And its good to different styles that you can mix and match with. And I love the colors and style on your top colored dragons.

    Thanks! Though I guess I should have mentioned somewhere that the second image in the list is actually a Clefthoof, from World of Warcraft. :T It was a hair test / fun image I did during a live stream.

    These top 3 were actually drawn a little while ago, but I still love them plenty. These are probably the most detailed backgrounds I've ever drawn. The rest of them are either sketches of my / friends' WoW characters, various WoW NPCs or just whatever came to mind that day. The one with the Pokemon is actually a commission I got a short while ago. I like it c:>

    Edit: Plopped Pen Dragon onto the bottom.
