Hah, really cool work in here! Im hoping those are done with MS paint, i used to do all of my digital work in there, so i have big respect for someone who can control paints unruly lines.
Anyway, i like your concepts, and your anatomy looks really solid as well. Cool stuff, i hope to see more work soon!
AustenFM: Yes! They are indeed MS Paint drawings. I do about 98% of my digital drawings using it. I will eventually move on to bigger things. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment!
Hello, it's me again.
wow! thats a lot of work.I have actually tried a couple of times to sketch in ms paint but I have messed up in the end. your work is amazing!
mosishmon: Ah, thank you very much. MS Paint is a clunker of a program, but I do like the simplicity of it. Thanks for taking a peek!
Cecil654 (the bot): Thank you for stopping by, Ms. Robot. Your definitions are appreciated.
whaat??! MS PAINT?! wow. props dude. you are well deserving of painter or photoshop for having to put up with that crap program for so long!! these still look pretty cool though!! nice work man!!
Nice work, I wouldn't have the patience to finish something in MS Paint. And I flip off switches all the time haha.
that's some awesome work in MS Paint! You're crazy, in a very good way
wow bro, really interesting and awesome ms paint jobs, have your tryed fineliners, it would really suit your style I think
My Deviant Art
All: I appreciate your stopping by =)
NickyBeats: I think it's a good program! Thank you for the compliments.
TheKuu: Thank you for the kind words. My secret for patience is to have a lot of free time.
Conniekat8: You are too kind! My work is kind of okay, though. There is still so much for me to learn and refine.
Spideriser: Thank you for appreciating them! Fineliners you say? I might be too much of a penny-pincher to purchase those kinds of tools; but maybe when I possess more money.
The media for the following posts is gypsum sand.
Edit: Does anyone know how to shrink down some of these images using this site's tools?
Hello again fellow CA-ers
4th picture is Juri from Super Street Fighter.

Glad to see an update from you again! I like the dynamism in the first three b+w sketched on this last post, are you still working on the final drawing with the girl firing the guns? Also, the gypsum sand drawings a few posts back are really neat too, where were you when you made them if you dont mind me asking?
Cool stuff again, i'll be back for more~
AustenFM: I don't plan on doing anything more with the girl with the funny-looking guns (because of lack of interest). The sand drawings were done in White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!
Trying to learn color.
References from deviant art were used for the colored stuff.
Still beginning to learn color; it is complicated.
lohes: Thank you for dropping by! Yes, I've heard of Loomis. In fact, I've already gotten that very link from someone else on this site quite a while back.
First and third are done from references (the latter from Deviant Art)
Fifth image was done for CHOW (supernatural noir), but I don't think I will be able to complete it on time.
Still need tons more practice with colored stuffs; also should do some real anatomy studies
Thanks for looking.
These are great! I especially like the colorful girl in post #16. Would love to you do something in Photoshop! Keep it up!
I especially like the solidness in your anatomy. But i wonder what anatomy you studied because i can't see any typical bridgeman or loomis building blocks in it. I take it you practiced alot of anatomy from memory aswell or not?
Leep it up
Spare the rod, spoil the child.
habrok:Thank you for the nice words. My inks are kind of messy and incoherent, unfortunately.
Zikes: Thanks! I had fun with that one. I don't think you'd like what I'd do in PS/PS equivalents (because I don't know how to use them yet).
Ravendell: I think my main influences are Mentler (the bone doctor), Bridgman, and random anatomy diagrams. I've never really followed any one body construction method. I have my own method, which has a lot of limitations. For instance, it is really difficult for me to construct a figure from a non-normal eye level perspective. Anyway, I used to practice a lot of anatomy strictly from imagination, which is kind of apparent because I tend to make stuff up and hope that no one notices. Thank you for looking!
2nd image was for CHOW, which I didn't complete =/
I need to learn how to draw fabrics (how they interact with other things to generate folds). Anyone know of good resources?

These look like some crazy awesome oekaki. I would love to see some more traditional stuff, or even some stuff in painter or photoshop. It is impressive that you can use ms paint so well. I will check back!
My Sketchbook would benefit from your critiques.
That's some fabulous ms paint work. - I agree with anonanon though, it would be fun to see some more variety- your pencil gestures are really fun too - it'd be nice to see more
nice job man! ;D
You have an immense amount of skill to use such a program. I wonder how you pieces would look if you moved onto painter and photoshop. I think you need to treat yourself and start looking into those programs. Change is good. Keep it up!
finndahl: Thank you!
Flanagan: Not much skill, just a lot of patience. I think you'd be disappointed if I moved on to PS/painter. And thank you.
Rhubix: Thank you. Yes, I'm kind of a one-trick-pony. I will sloth-ily slide into more complicated drawing programs.
anonanon: Oekaki has entered my vocabulary. Thank you for looking and complimenting! And yes, I will move on to bigger and more complex drawing programs.
I was inspired by the FZD youtube video, so I made some silhouettes in GIMP (open source PS equivalent).
Also, if you have time to waste (maybe you are bored at work!), you can work on the intestine maze at the bottom.

You keep saying that people would be disappointed by your ps/painter stuff. Drawing skills are transferable, programs are just like mediums. Sure there's gonna be a learning curve for learning the program, but once you get over that the rewards will be worth it.
Keep it up man
oh and while scrolling down i saw you needed a resource for folds:
By far the most helpful tutorial I've found on it. (and draw them from life!)
