DIGITAL ESCAPADES.

Post by Swifto on Wed Aug 22, 2012 12:27 pm

I swear I didn't forget how to draw.

I first did this as a warm up,



I set myself a five minute timer and tried to keep it simple, using this as a reference:



And then moved on to an idea I had.



I may go back to this in the future with a finer GIMP brush and make a better rendition.
(I have no idea what the fuck is up with his chest, don't ask)



THOUGH.

I want to get better at drawing things other than Harlock, variations of him, and the pictures I have saved.
SO. Lay a request on me!
Keeping in mind my skill level.
I can't promise anything but an attempt.

Wait, there's an artist here that takes requests? For free? Oblivion should have mentioned you guys sooner. Smile

Do not expect anything fantastic. This thread has my best digital work I've ever done.

Not to mention I'm bad at actually doing the requests.


Also: I wouldn't call myself an artist. I'm merely a writer that dabbles in many things.

This next chapter is titled "In Which I Say 'Screw It' To the Digital Revolution".

I decided to clean off my drafting table and treat the adjustable table part of it for what it was designed for, rather than just another surface.

(the purchase of a roll of drafting paper helped in this decision as well)


I apologize in advance for poor camera quality pictures. I need to figure out a better method of lighting for these. (my usual lighting is a swivel lamp, which works great at illuminating ill-lit rooms, but for close-up things it's... Not very well suited.)


Lady, you had requested Jaekah and Errol drawings.
Well, I set about trying to nail down their personalities more than anything, and uh...








I feel like Errol is the only one I succeeded on. (The second drawing I tried to minimize him to the very basic elements and yet still have it be recognizable as Errol. In my head, I did okay.) These were all drawn with a reference, since the only thing I can draw without a reference is Harlock.

Also, in trying to nail down drawing elf anatomy, I tried a few attempts.



She's been my phone background for months now, and figured I'd try and draw her.



A poor attempt at drawing my 'best' character, whom I play with my local group.


And then I found my coloured pencils!

I take it back. Harlock and Death Duck I can draw without a reference.
That's kind of it, though.
