Uhm.... A little help??

I... Have no idea what's wrong with this, it feels like the biceps are the most problematic here but it could also be the head being too big? Any ideas on how to make this... idk, better? Cause it looks like he has a child's body...

 

I also haven't drawn in a bit, like... at all... so when I picked up the pencil and started drawing on the ipad it was super weird..... and I apparently forgot how to foreshorten apparently...... It's only been three... four? Five? days since I last drew... How did I lose so much knowledge already???????? XD Help XD

(Ahhh go figure.... it did it)

 

(In case it shrinks cause I noticed that images lately have been kind of stooping... Full version here)

The upper arms (especially the one to our left) seem a bit short to me, but that might just be the angle and lack of shading at the moment. I always find that foreshortened stuff looks weird w/o depth coloured in even if the proportions are correct! His head may be a bit too big, but it being larger makes sense considering he's leaning forward. You could try making it a bit smaller and see if that's better?

 

I feel u though I haven't drawn in like 2 months and I'm just now picking it up again. I have no idea what I'm doing.

Hhhhhhh

This color is extremely upsetting to me. I'm not entirely sure if I'm going to keep it. But I thought I'd share a w.i.p. that I'll probably actually finish ooooohwow

I promise to actually finish this one this time. really. really I do.

"Your little ssscience experiment iss DEADER than DISCO."

So um... I realized that the color disturbed me so much because it was so very much like flesh. And flesh doesn't really have many good accent colors. So uh... I started thinking..

Why not make it even more fleshy? Thus, I've turned it into a porkchop.

I consider this finished in my book. Yaaaaay. I don't want to add a background as this seems more like a good thing to reference if I ever want to revisit these nightmares again in the future, with a more dynamic pose n' all that. This was to get the concept down/developed. This certainly is not what I originally had in mind for this thing but... it's not.. terrible.....

Teeth is suppose to be piano keys, but I feel like it's too small... hmm...

 

Flowers I used are a few lilly's, roses, hollyhocks, bleeding hearts, and... oh.. that's all.... okay..

In my opinion, looks kinda creepy. It might be just me thinking something about floating heads with obscure (unusual) visuals creep me out.

 

Overall, look'n good. The only critasism I would give is yah, maybe it is better to increase the size of the keybord teeth, just a little bit.

So I created a concept design for a new fan dragon. I don't know if I'm going to keep it, or make a few alterations. I can't figure out what its breath attack should be, and what the breath attack should be used for.

It is meant to be the fastest running dragon of the Americas, and the fastest running Tracker Class dragon overall. It has two varients depending on living in North or South America. The north varient nicknamed by the Natives "Horned Serpent".

Maybe it shouldn't have a breath weapon or else the breath weapon can only be used at very close range and that's what pushed it to be such a fast runner since it's probubly chasing down things like deer and stuff.

Ooh cool idea! Maybe since it chases down it's prey, instead of giving it a projectile-like long distance ability, it could have some type of poison or bacteria filled saliva/bite. I'm thinking similar to how the Komodo dragon infects it's prey. Hope this helps!

It's me again with another bionicle inspired peace. (Why do I do this to myself?)

It's a much more simplyfied thing then Duurk because.....I'd like to keep my sanity.

This is Ninx. She's a fan made member of the Makuta's species (which can....basically look like just....whatever the heck they want. They're shape shifters). Heavily inspired by the main villan of the series but also by some of the random animals in the series + real life bugs birds and stuff. That's a grappling hook on the end of her tail too.

The creature in one of her hands is not her lunch. It's basically her pet. Her species produces those slugs just as a thing their biology does and Ninx is rather attatched to one she has dubbed Squishy. "I will call you Squishy and you will be mine, and you will be my Squishy."

 

I never did finish Duurk yet but I probubly will be able to finish this little charicter sheet. Some parts of her will be dark greys and there will be some small red parts (her eyes) but I'm also considering making her wings ears and possibly parts of her hands and feet purple.

(P.S. those are not mushrooms on her head. Those are ears that look very much like the ears of one of bionicle's beasts)

Hair is, indeed, the devil.

 

She's looking great so far! I remember at least.. one of your Mer-may mermaids (At least that's what i'm assuming this is- correct me if I'm wrong) so this'll be interesting to see as well heehee.

 

Edit: actually don't correct me. I see that earlier progress post up there missy. I shall now confidentally assert this is a mermaid!!!!!!!11!

It feels appropriate to show this :P

I was originally meant to post an update, but my PC decided that because I shared one image, it'll do anything it can in its power to stop me from posting more. :'D

 

But now that I finally got it to work, I can show you the few updates YAY!

Stage 2:

I did the eyes on a seperate layer and colored the body so that it doesn't look wierd. I merged the layers.

 

Stage 3:

Shading time! I made a new layer for the shadows. The reason it is rainbow colored is so that it doesn't confuse me. Don't worry, I changed the rainbow colored to a black color of different opacity. The purple is transparent white now.

 

Stage 4:

And this is the result of it so far :D. I did the clothing and the sword (Geraldine) and I'm seeing what needs to be added before I make a background. But yah, this is how the drawing's going.

Oooooooh, very nice! :O

 

How DO you do the whole 'made it this color and then changed it to a different color entirely later' thing? Because.. I don't know how you do that. Not in Krita at least. Unless it's alpha inherit magic. (not even mentioning the fill tool because in all of my experience.. the fill tool is more hassle than it is worth.)

 

I guess what I'm mostly wondering is if there's some alternative method that I am completely oblivious to.

Also, I see you like Wings of Fire. I am a huge fan of the series! And you have a pet snake? That's awesome! I've always wanted a lizard or gecko of some kind, but the cost required to buy and house one is a bit out of my price range. XD

haha and its finally done

Here it is!! xD my first ever animation- it's pretty rough and only has 10 frames but it still took forever xD I decided to make it faster than my original rough animation and I also decided not to animate the tail. I also got rid of a couple of frames- starting to regret that now but what's done is done x') If there's anyone here who has animated before or has experience in animation, I would be very open to some constructive critisim or helpful tips. Thank you! ^^

Oooooooooooh, this looks really good! It has very nice flow (I suppose gesture would be an appropriate word here? Maybe? I hate technical terms lololol) and definitely has that animated vibe to it. As someone who struggles with making things look stiff, I applaud this :clapclap:

WIP. Hoping we can actually see her face tomorrow when i keep shading xD Because I made her skin too dark! Tbh this is new territory for me and I've, as usual, been looking at a LOT of referances so I can do my best! I'm also fascinated that a vibrant piece on my tablet can look so desaturated on another device!! :O 

 

 

This is a re-do of this character! Re-did her outfit and everything!

Okay... A few things... One, does this look okay... XD two, think it's a good take on the Lycanwing? And lastly... Would anybody want one? XD

 

Odd thing I noticed while drawing this, is that the tail kinda looks like a deathgripper tail in the little dragon eye lens depiction of it.... So, I kinda stole their tail XD

 

Now.. To colour....

I'm a sucker for anything that has a skull - these are amazing! I think the Deathgripper-looking tail kind of fits them. If I remember correctly (and I am a goldfish), they are were-dragons, so it would make sense that their designs would take after other dragons. Perhaps these individuals lived close to a large Deathgripper home of some sort!

 

(I hope that makes sense XD)

That's an interesting way to look at it :3 I kept thinking they's be a bit of a mix between Deathgrippers and Skrills. So that's what I based it mostly off of xp
