Title: the noise made by meal
Post by: mealguien on December 1, 2015 06:30 PM
Starting up an art thread. I don't really have much to go off of, and my technical skill ain't the best, but hey.

This was a Gurren Laggan that I made for an art show hosted by a school group (that somehow managed to be accepted, and lied uncomfortably next to canvas paintings of flowers in vases). Looking at it now, pose doesn't really seem to have much balance, and some of the smaller details look kind of off. I still kind of like it, though, since despite really being my first time drawing a robot of this detail, I think it came out decently.

Was an attempt at replicating the Gravity Falls Art Style.

Satsuki from Kill la Kill. Colors are a bit off-putting, now that I really look at it.

That's all I got for right now. I'm hoping to do a lot more stuff after I get done with finals. I also finally got mailed a copy of Samantha Yousseff's "Movement and Form" book, so here's hoping where that takes me.

Gurren Laggen is always a good start to a thread. Good stuff so far I thinks.

the line quality on the gravity falls stuff is good. satsuki feels a little stiff. keep it up!

Been workin' on this for a while. Here's a Madoka.
I kinda like how this came out, but I think I really need to re-learn how I do lighting sources. Anyone have any links to any good guides?

idk any good guides off hand (although i'm sure i could find plenty of bad ones), but i'd recommend looking up warm light cool shadow and color theory, paying more attention to shadow and bounce light, ambient light, etc. the shading here seems like an afterthought.

Can't tell if that comment was supposed to be playful or sarcastic.

(BTW, this thread was named after the album that song's from. I adore Broadcast).

How would it have been sarcastic?

Yeah I was wondering.

Been busy, so all I really have to show right now are notebook drawings.

Kyoko from Madoka Magica. She was supposed to give off that "leaping through the air" vibe, but I think I failed at conveying that.

its good to see an attempt at still life

the one piece of advice i can offer (if you arent already doing this) is to try drawing using tone. this is something id wish id been told a long time ago, try and create shape using light. look to block in shapes just by rendering the area around them

you end up learning a great deal more about composition that way, and you wont end up using linework as a crutch
