You've got some good stuff, keep up the good work. I need to start up my sketchbook thread here soon. But i'll be sure to come back and crit your new stuff.
This si cool, very castle in the sky.
I dig the shading in those faces.
As for the sketchgroup. I noticed lots of people like this on other forums. They seem to be more interested in cartoons than drawing. I guess it will take some time to convince them that there is no shortcut and that the foundations are necessary to gain freedom in creativity. Good luck with that
I wish there was some sketchgroup where I live. It's really hard to find people with similar interests. I mean illustration or conceptart.
wow u have an excellent style and a great eye. thanks for the inspiration!!!! just 1 thing, ur drawings are getting quite repetitive (which is definatly not a bad thing) and since ur great at the portraits and antomy you should have a go at sumthing a little more crazy. do sumthing funky with colours and make things do things that they shouldnt. in your drawings you are god.
-- go wild u have the talent, theres nothing stoppong u
@Erilaz: oh you don't understand...i was like, "OK! A NOUN!?!? ANYONE!?!? A NOUN!?!? A FUCKING NOUN!" *thinks, oh.my.god. they can't come up with a noun.* "OK, NOW A VERB! A VERB!!!??!?!!" they seriously were too shy or too lazy to think of anything themselves...
@Onir: well, i was trying to "stylize" the faces into how i normally doodle, but with realistic shading.
@Unbreakable: i guess i just need to go to the zoo more =P
@spiffiness: hehe thanks. update more! no excuses!
@archnemesis dbal: thanks!
@hito: hehe, never watched it, but thanks.
@Farvus: thanks! yeah it was hard to find ppl to come to the sketchgroup, although i got a lot of emails. i have like 77 members technically, but only about 8-12 are really involved.
@seb182: i always feel like my drawings are repetitive...i need to branch out.
i'm too lazy to scan my life drawings and my sketchbook. the good news is...I'M ALMOST DONE WITH MY SKETCHBOOK WOOOO!!!! first time ever that i felt that i had a "real" sketchbook that wasn't all like, torn out and one small doodle per page. i got a new bigger sketchbook so hopefully i will learn to draw bigger.
some thing i drew a while back for "my parents are superheros" and never finished.
dunno if i ever posted these...i was trying to figure out that method of doing white on black really quickly. one is "tombs of atuan" fanart and one is me copying the prince of persia artwork. btw, i used the "flat color" pen to do these in painter.
anddddd drawing outfits i want to make but...i suck at crafts. and i wish i had an occasion to wear a sexy business outfit with cateye glasses.
and just cuz it's funny...BATWING NIPPLE THINGIES!!!!

Okay, that last one is just scary. 0_o
I think my fav in that lot is actually the one of your superhero mother. Really nice flow of the form, although something is going weird down in the lower calf/foot area.
Heh, and you're right! Nothing makes you learn something faster than being forced to teach it!
and i wish i could see thatOriginally Posted by hpslashluvr
good stuff all around in that last post. good luck with the matte painting and vehicle stuff...i haven't even tried to draw a screwdriver
sweet stuff.. I like the flash pose of the first girl and the sillhouette... cute outfits... bat wing nipple thingies....whoah.
hey nice update, I really like the first piece you posted; colors are looking good and the pose has a nice dynamic feel to it. nice drawings and outfit in general after that... some cool outfit designs as well, I especially like that business suit one. seems like you've gotten alot better with constructing the figure really cleanly by the way, so very nice job on that. keep at it!
@Erilaz: thanks for being so faithful in posting back here it makes me feel good. perhaps i'll send you tea on your bday. ^^ yeah i think i draw funny calves...just like i like to draw thighs really big. we got a life model that looks JUST like my girls that i draw, i was thrilled. long wavy dark hair, short, thin waist, big boobs, HUGE thighs and legs. very unproportional
@Carnifex: thanks for the luck, i'll need it
@glikster: thanks! meh, they are just covering her boobs, nothing weird
@onir: thanks, i'm trying ot make my figures more dynamic...yeah right.
still too lazy to scan sketchbook...so here are some doodles i did during a lecture. gonna try posting everyday again we'll see...trying to do 3d now too.
my friend's potential halloween costume.
not really an update....but i thought i'd restart work on this piece. i think i'll repeat that glowy oval thing behind the throne.
great update on the older piece....!!
yeah yeah...i'll have to fix that but i think i'm too attached to them to redo them...that was back in the day when my comp crashed all the time so like yeah to just redo it i'm like AHHHH ^^
just some fun during work with a mouse and shi painter. didn't know really how to use it...
hey nice little updates, cool seeing the older piece you were working on again. really is looking good, can't wait to see where you take it. the little doodles you did in shi painter look good, especially since you did it with a mouse.. nice updates though.
I'll try to crit more often, can't think of anything to crit here right now though.
very nice stuff.....we dallas locals need to get together and draw again
Nice stuff! Of course I'm partial to the more rendered stuff... Would like to see an update on running girl! And do push on with the girl on the throne! Looks to be a portfolio-piece when you're done with it.
Keep 'em coming!
The ChoW pic with running girl is really nice.
I have small suggestion. I think that maybe you simplify your characters too much. I'd go for more organic look and search more alive and dynamic body. Of course it's up to you beacause you might want different style .
@Onir: thanks! ^^
@arechiga_tony: yeah we do, give me a shout when ya'll meet up.
@dCepT: thanks, yeah...need to finish things...need time...need to quit school...lol
@Farvus: uhhh can you explain that again lol. i don't quite get it. ^^
@Unbreakable: I will, whenever I do it...so behind on all my 2d
ermm yeah. so i tried my hand at matte painting today since i have to teach it on thurs. HAHA YEAH RIGHT *cries* umm this is done relatively quick for me so i know a lot of parts are showing through. it's funny, cuz originally i used a road in salt lake city...then i thought maybe i should make like a mountain slant into the city, kind of like a city in the valley...oh well, it ended up like this, without the original picture at all. hehehe. i'm thinking of doing a konoha by the sea type thingy. it's going to have a lot of buildings and ninjafied things going on. i actually painted pretty much everything except the trees and stuff, and the water (but i painted over it). the mountains i did from scratch and just put some trees and stuff over them...pretty happy with them.
hehe and me at a halloween party...this yr i totally didn't get or do a costume...so i just tried to be a librarian. no one could guess what i was though, EVEN THOUGH I HAD A PENCIL BEHIND MY HAIR AND A BUN AND A BOOK >.< they all guessed sexy java programmer
Nice flowing forms in those mountains, although it feels a leeeetle bit flat. I think once you've done a few more you'll start to get somewhere really comfortable.
Surprisingly, I knew a librarian that dressed a lot like that!
great colors in the mountains...
heey lookin good nice matte painting, has a really nice look to it (you captured the heads of Konoha quite well might I add ). I agree with glikster, really nice colors in that one.
not much else I can think to say really.. didn't get much sleep last night so I'm kinda.. off balance lol.
wow that matte painting thing is friggen awesome. how come you don't have more of those things in addition to your figure drawings? (do i see cloud from ff7 in the picture?) yeah, i really liked your last post - the story about you as the sexy java programmer pic was pretty cool too (haha librarian - that's a new one) . i got a laugh out of that.
@Erilaz: hehe yeah...i'm not very good at environs but oh well, i'll work on it!
@Onir: thanks, it's ok, i haven't had much sleep at all either, with tests and trying to do this before thurs.
@hypocalvin: because i hate doing background lol. but this has been pretty fun...so who knows.
OK! color time again. choose one!
the one i posted last time.
my friend says she likes the 2nd one best...but personally i like green or red cuz it complements the bridge. i guess blue was what i was going for originally anyways...gonna add a fog too.
ORRRRRRRR my friend did this.

hmm interesting how changing the lighting like that can change the feeling of the piece like that; the original and second look to me like they are in the morning and they feel colder, and the third and forth ones feel warmer and later in the day. random observation I guess; in terms of the colors I agree that the red and green seem to work best in my opinion, with the red being more my favorite. it has a nice look and it compliments the bridge as you said.
the one your friend did works well too in my opinion; the purples on the mountains and the yellowy sky give a nice morning feel. kudos to both of you on these though, nice work.
thanks! i liked the blue foggyness but yeah green prolly works the best.
i got a talking to from one of the actually good teachers here at utd, and he told me that i need to stop fooling around and just focus on one thing at a time, or i'll never get a job
anyways i thought i'd make a website finally, if only so i can put my contact info on it...i always wanted to make an enter page that has this on the front...it came from a lame conversation with my friend when we got stuck at starbucks on how we would look if we were naruto chars. basically my friend has a summoning scroll that summons her HUGE FUZZY cat....and i summon up a large bowl of ramen. i also have huge chopsticks i started to draw my other friend who is a bum and summons trash cans to put on ppl.
WIP of my enter page.
my friend summoning her cat.
my friend as the bum.
me fighting my enemies.
and a photo of the cat.
those are some hysterically cute cartoons...
The green one of the mountains really makes it seem like a scroll painting or something... very mystical looking.
lol nice stuff, I like your drawing of San; she looks so happy! hahaha... I agree with glikster, very funny and cute little cartoons. the one with you fighting your enemies and with the bum giving chase are great, love the expressions.
crazy picture of that cat by the way
thanks both of you...and btw it's supposed to be me dressed up as san in that first pic, which is why it isn't very accurate ^^
some life drawing in my sketchbook...pretty bad.
