Wiggles the whispering d.eath ate my subject

Unfortunatly I can't really take credit for a lot of the design. I basically just kind of copyed what the toy parts looked like for the body. (the head I did change up a bit but I was still following what was known for the species) One good thing about trying to draw a bionicle is there's usually a lot of references to use even for a non-artist who occasionally randomly tries to draw something like me. The bad part? Everything else about drawing a bionicle. 

 

(The reason I say I'm not an artist is not so much that I automatically think my drawings are d.oo d.oo but more that I just don't have the impuse to draw nearly as often as an artist does. Because of this I haven't spent much time trying to improve my art eather. Basically I don't work on my art skills enough for me to justify calling myself an artist and the wobbly lined not terrible but not good eather level I'm at is where I've been for a while.)

"Now I'll NEVER rule the world! I HATE thisss job!!"

Speaking as someone currently tasked with drawing a bionicle for an art request, this is very impressive even IF you copied a lot of the toy parts and such. That in itself isn't necessarily an easy feat to accomplish if you're just eye-balling it.

 

I have this thing where whenever I'm reading instructions I start going 'yada-yada-yaaa' when it feels like there's too much fluff words and nothing of substance... yeah.. this affects my drawing skills too :'D I tend to 'yada-yada-yaa' with complex designs and patterns too- which is a lot of what highly mechanical looking things are. Complex little bits and pieces put together to make something bigger. And even copying it is just.. very difficult for me not to take shortcuts on :'D

 

So. Yes. Be proud of your accomplishment!! Even if you don't finish it.

Thank you!

 

 

Not really related to the comment itself but is that subject from something or did you make it up because it's funny?

"M.ORONS!!! I HAVE M.ORONSS ON MY PAYROLL!!"

It's an actual quote from Cobra Commander :'D I cycle through various quotes of his for my subjects (when I've already posted the COBRA-LALALALA one on a thread already- though that one isn't a Cobra Commander quote. It's a Serpentor quote.)

I'd like to think that she didn't have to actually light that cigarette but just that the ambient temperature lit it for her. (if the lighting is anything to go by...and possibly the skull head.)

Ok. That subject quote is the best one I've seen from you yet. That is one of the best insults I've ever read.

"Your little ssscience experiment iss DEADER than DISCO."

Lol. I can't take credit for it. It's an actual quote from the cartoon. (Which is why I love the cartoon so much. Or, at the very least, Cobra Commander. Cobra Commander definitely got some of the best lines.)

   Here is my WIP. It took a while and I still need to add detail/background and then add color so it catches the eye better.

Not actually an assigned project

This is just a blueprint of an experimental drawing that is part of a much larger project. Using the techniques I learned in college, I think I should try to make a decent-looking drawing with background, foreground, and shading, perfectly replicating a real cartoon; thus finally create the art-style that best fits for this project.

However, with college work, other art drawings, and problems with motivation, other work, and the fact I am just one person doing a project the needs a team to complete, this'll actually take quite a lot of time for me to finish. So don't expect an update from this anytime soon. But I'll keep you all posted.

 

 

Update: I am surprised I have the dopamine to keep going with the drawing, especially this quickly.

But GUA-AAAHHK!

(There is going to be something in the foreground when I'm finished, but—)

That background! It feels so bland! So tasteless! Something's missing, but what could it be?

Attempted a satyr thing. She ended up turning out more like a deer-donkey :T Oh well.

Maybe you should roll with the deer donkey vibe. You might suprise yourself with something unintended but great.

Started coloring her. I'm debating the color of the legs and if they need any other designs (ex: stripes, spots). My friend said that the current color is alright, but what do you all think? Too dark? Too light?

One day, when it's finished, it will be a base. I think I will just do the little egg and babe in the top corner and people can adopt one. Then, in another thread, let people request for a "grown up" version.

Absolutely :3 I may always let people customize the base. Doing adopts take creative juices that I not always have.

 

Sadly, the only axolotl child I have isn't even mine. I adopted it, like, years ago and only now remember XD

YES!!! So cute! On the list of pets I've always wanted, axolotls are pretty high up. Most of the top spots are just taken by various pet lizard and frog types, the closest animals I can find to dragons in real life :D

A Dragons Fury concept piece.... ish

Aight. It's 2 am and I'm tired out of my mind hence why I didn't colour plan this... Astrid passed up Hiccup for Eret in my little AU story.... This story revolves around Hiccup being evil, but I didn't really wanna make Astrid evil too... So, I gave her a different mate... Haven't decided if I'm giving Hiccup a lover or not... if I do, it would probably be an OC of mine.... but still not sure yet... what you think? (Of both this and about Hiccup having a mate... >.> Its super late.. I need sleep shhh XD...) 

 

I'd link to the story to take you to Wattpad... A website for authors to post stories.... buuuuut... I'm making it with some pretty mature content... with major profanity and in depth detail of g.ory stuff... not too sure if I'd add more than that.... but that for sure..... so idk. You can find in wattpad if you're interested... or just ask... XD Story's called A Dragons Fury :p

Blender, my savior! :3

I can't believe I made these human models on Blender in a single try! *inhuman shrieks*

I'm making a large set of pose models that could help with proportions in my drawings. So far, it's working wonders! This'll have to be the first time I 3D modeled, and actually enjoying it.
