Default drawing at the speed of dial-up internet

edit: Here's a bunch of links to things I've drawn I'm gonna make this first post less lame later

For the Battle for Asber
full profile picture in ghost trick art style
reference sheet for an OC/friend
some people you might know
i got a tiger
fan TWEWY noise/TWEWY sona?
some doodles from this November
Pit from Kid Icarus
ew what
some stuff made of clay!

Favourite Pokemon of every type:
Bug and shitty homestuck recolour
Dark and shitty homestuck recolour

Sometimes I pixelart:
lolwut
The Rayquaza ornament is the newest sprite, and the others were done from 6-18 months ago. I know about those three white pixels just hanging around on it :V

I refuse to make separate pixelart/art request threads so let's just instead! If you want me to draw/sprite something for you, go ahead and just leave a comment here and I might do it if I have time/the muse for it and/or no homework. If you do request something, expect it done in anywhere from a week to a month, to two months to never, though :0

I really like your style.

I love your art style! c: especially the way you shade things, it's all smooth and sort of...painterly? *does not actually know if that is the right way to describe it*

Also, didn't you enter that Rayquaza ornament in GPX+'s bauble decoration contest thingy? I think I remember seeing it on there :o

Haha, thanks you guys :3 Though I'm not really sure what you mean about my art style being nice since it seems to be really inconsistent and I'm not even sure what it is? Pretty sure it changes sporadically from a generic anime style to a crappy semi-realistic style and blargh.

@Zapi: Yeah, I entered the Rayquaza bauble in that contest :0! I even came in fourth place yay I got like ten prize points for it too

EDIT:
Not exactly a Togekiss retype, but sort of one! lol wat r sprite size limits. 'S Ashglade, an OC of mine. And 's most likely going to end up as a sig attribute in ASB.

A couple (late) comments about Pit. I notice his weight is all on his right foot. Unless his left foot is just floating, which I doubt. About that bow of his, the bow itself is too straight. Also, the arrow appears to be coming towards the viewer, but the bow is directed away. When you draw a bow, your fingers are curled, not straight. Overall though, excellent work.

Right, thanks! I don't know crap 'bout archery except that.. you hold a bow. I'll keep those things in mind if I draw a bow any time soon :0

Meanwhile;



What is going on with Salamence's anatomy there. I can't colours. or shading.

i'm back

Guys so I heard we have [hide] tags now? Is there a point in going back through this thread and [hide]ing everything or does it not matter. Anyways, I've basically only drawn Homestuck for a while so that's what all of the following is basically!

arts



and a weirdly coloured version



And in the first post or something I said I wouldn't post cosplay pictures but since these are already on Tumblr here is me cosplaying as Terezi from Homestuck. Also some wonky scalemates I made with Eyes5's pattern before Hussie got it taken down. These qualify as art right???

I'll be scanning a few more things in the next week or so, so there's that.

Since the bit near the bulb's roughly a perfect circle, it should actually be an ellipse (and therefore roughly symmetrical), not a lump. Same for the base.

While I like the shading and the lineart for the absol, I think the distinction between the blues and the reds is way too stark. :/ It looks kind of like two separate images there that got mashed together since the colour scheme's not unified. Also, the greens for the talons on the red side should either be a dark red or nearly grey (but still on the red side of things) to match with the red lighting.

The togekiss pixel art is awesome \o/ -- oh hey, neat groudon. I'd suggest layering a few different similar glaze colours, though, to make it slightly more interesting. But then again groudon is red and red glazes are hard to find, so. Is that a red underglaze?


I keep editing this post because the sneasel style (while being otherwise my favourite) has basically no contrast between links and text so I keep having trouble finding things :(
Eee, Terezi cosplay. And scalemates! And the Roxy and Rose pixel art.

Thanks for looking over my stuff :O!

Colour really isn't my strong suit, haha. And for Groudon, that's a red glaze and not an underglaze (lol using school resources). I didn't think of layering glazes whoa :o! Those three things are the only things I've made out of clay actually, but the next time I get my hands on a kiln and some glazes I'm def trying that.

:D

My high school didn't have red glazes, just red underglazes, which was why I asked. ... Actually, I don't think the place my mum does pottery at has red glazes, either. Red's an easy colour to accidentally burn out. You'll of course want to be careful about not putting on too MUCH glaze, but I think putting two similar colours slightly overlapping'd be pretty interesting :D

On that fantasystuck Rose, the distances between the top of her shoulders, her collar bone, and her boobs makes it look like you're looking down on her from a significant angle, like birds-eye kind of significant. Also it looks like her hands are on backwards. Did she respec into a rakshasa? Also her feet are at weird angles. ... Really, everyone except Dave's feet are too far pointed down. It's a recurring thing.

But your proportions are pretty good, though I think you give everyone too much forehead, and I like the designs. :D
