Re: bipolar pimps???

whoa man I haven't posted shit in a veeery long time, mostly due to Skyrim and other things (like Skyrim)


I guess I've drawn things? Mostly half-assed stuff but I'll post them anyway.
Here are some lovely preview images so that you can tell right away if you don't want to see them!


sorry, dA links because nobody loves me (and also because I don't want to type these descriptions again)



also why isn't my thread title changing like usual although I edited the first post? :C
still showing the old one, damn

anyway
anyone have stuff to say? I'd very much like to hear how you feel about my drawings


EDIT: some silly character concepts:

Re: bipolar pimps???

so
last week I decided it's time I start learning because of something a person said to me! I took up painting something every day from a photo reference, and I intend to keep on doing this as long as I can. Maybe I'll even learn something!

Here's a nice collage of the things I've done. My speedy paintings on the top, the photo references in the bottom rows. They're all random pictures found via Google because why not.


Comments? Anything? :p

Re: bipolar pimps???

Thank youuuu C:
Here's another batch of those one-a-day paints:

I think I might be able to keep this up!

I'll just stick it under here to spare those not interested from my incoherent fan ramblings (that's a warning everyone)

these are the best Beforus trolls I mean aaah I can't handle the hilarity and amazingness
just

Re: bipolar pimps???

Whoa okay the perspective in the shoes and pants one is really nice :0 Only thing I could point out is in the (cat's?) eye picture, the fur above the eye could be a bit more defined; like the upper eye lid/crease could be shaded so it's more obvious. Do you draw those at that size or are they just shrunken down?

And the Homestuck piece is great :D

Re: bipolar pimps???

Yeah, there's a lot of stuff that I could refine, but I guess the idea is kind of that I just draw them without thinking too much (because if I started nitpicking I'd never manage to make one every day, haha). :D Valid points you got, though! I appreciate that. :3

Those are 25% of the actual size. They look kind of horrible in 100% and much better shrunken down :P
I have learned that I should always make things huge and then scale 'em down, because things somehow end up looking better that way? It's a mystery.


But yes thank youu C:

ART INCOMING

I went to sleep at 4:30 in the morning because I COULDN'T STOP DRAWING UNTIL THEN
I started at like 20:30 yesterday when my sister linked me this song and I was super inspired O:

I properly finished it today, had to tweak a lot of things but my friends at school helped me a lot by giving constructive crit and helping me notice things I hadn't seen myself :D
I'm very happy with how this turned out and I'm still on an art high hnnngh

(click image for bigger, WARNING pretty huge)
Characters are my own original ones, Lynn and Emily.


shdgadhgashdgafdssss
comments would be most appreciated! C:

QUICKEDIT: oh and I guess I spent about 14 hours in total on this in case you're interested (counting all the stuff I did today)

Re: bipolar pimps???

That is just awesome. You shade very well.
Also, fourteen hours? double awesomeness. For some reason I like art that the drawer admits took a really long time.
But there's just something about Emily's back that bothers me

Re: bipolar pimps???

Thank youuuu C:
Emily's kinda hunched over there and her jacket is sorta big so it might look a bit strange (also shhhh i didn't even sketch anything, just went SILHOUETTES and SHADING so there may be weirdnesses)

anyhow, here's another bunch of once-a-day drawings O:

damn, it would be fine to post a massive 365-drawing mosaic a year from now
WE'LL SEE
(also sorry some of them are really shitty; on those days I just wanted to get them out of the way so I could draw other stuff)

Re: bipolar pimps???

hey look here's something I just drew:

He's called Erno, and he started off as a doodle in (a very boring) English class. Now he strikes fear into the hearts of people (at least some people at my school). He doesn't have feet or a tail or anything, his body and hands just go on forever. He is infinite.
I thought it would be nice to draw him properly, I usually just scribble him really quickly C:

QUICKEDIT:
also would anyone be interested in seeing some fractals?
I sort of got back into messing with Apophysis some days ago, so I've been making and editing some fractal stuff O:

Re: bipolar pimps???

You're really getting good at the drawing-a-day thing. How many have you made so far, like thirty
Headlights and flower are probably the best. You should draw moar animals. And fractals would be cool.

INFINITY ERNOOO

I love you now

... I dunno, this just amuses me too much.

(also fractals would be nice! I love looking at them but I've never tried doing them, myself)

GOOD THING YOU ALL LOVE HIM ^u^

And fractals would be cool.
Fractals would be awesome.
also fractals would be nice!
this pleases me!


These are composed from two or more fractal renders with some Photoshop magic dust thrown in P:
Obviously, the fractals themselves are made with Apophysis. I'm not super good at making any cool fractals but I just take a random batch and edit some to make neat stuff.

QUICKEDIT: oh yeah, I've got like 31 one-a-day drawings done atm, expect another collage tomorrow P:
