Tiny Pic has always been a quick and easily solution to image hosting.  No accounts required.

Keep up the sketching everyone!  If you used a reference image, that would be great to see as well. (Give us some other images to practice with)  :D

Ello!

Here a bunch of doodles. It started with the woman in the middle, I failed to draw the neck - torso, I gave up - I doodled the things on the right.

And then..! I drew the body on the left in a serious attempt. Then I noticed the pose was awkward and gave it a name. Then, the arm on the left failed and finally I drew the arm on the right behind her back (I even failed doing that..).

Anyhow I was overall pleased with how it came out :surprised: It's the first body ever (except for the arms) that came out pretty reasonable to me :p.

Can I get some feedback and criticism on it? It's very much appreciated. :) Drawing bodies is so hard :(

Don't pay attention to the written stuff, it became a habit.. -.-

Hrm... Here's something I drew a few years back for a friend of mine. We had made a role-play about a fantasy world and these are out characters. The one crouching down is me, while the one that looks worried is my friend. I know it doesn't look that good compared to some of stuff that others make here on GW2Guru...

Very good job, Trusty! I kinda got inspiration from you to attempt drawing a female body... and as I went along I kinda doodled it into a Sylvari with a humanoid body... as a BML... xD

So yeah, here's my failure of a concoction! Lol

I've been playing with the command prompt today to switch through directories and start programs, just for the pleasure I get out of it, and then this idea came to me...

Posted Image

It quickly occurred to me that the perspective on the command prompt window was a bit difficult for me to draw, so I kept the text and details on it as minimal as I could without reducing the conveyance of the idea. In Tron: Legacy, Flynn creates a program within the Grid, and it's pretty cool how he does it. However, I decided this would be the real extent of any creation of programs within a virtual environment; being able to see three-dimensional directory trees, and creating the new program directory along one of the branches! :D There are a few perspective glitches here and there, I'm aware, but, eh. It's a bunch of lines.

I like it Gmr! I think you should fix up the monitor a bit more because it's looking a bit wobbly, but other than that I think it looks great! :)

Another drawing done by me. This time it's a self-portrait from last year when I was going through some sever artist block...

Yeah. Whenever I tried touching it up (I think it's the right that's really wobbly) on the right side, I realized the scroll bar details were what threw off the perspective. Then I decided I'd rather get the body of the idea down worked out than focus on that. :D Also, it's literally meant to be the command prompt window as a 2 dimensional window in 3 dimensional space. I can't find an image from the Tron: Legacy at the moment to show what brought it to mind, at the moment, but it may make more sense if ever I do.

Also, what Amannelle said on your drawing.

Drew these in my introductory drawing class last semester :D The first one is with charcoal, by the way.

I like the charcoal piece Neo! I used to use charcoal for a lot of my more fine art pieces from when I was in high school. I live the messiness that comes with working with that media! :p

I haven't drawn anything in so long. This was done in 2007. I pretty much gave up after that. Can't shade or color to save my life :D So enjoy my messy lines.

lol, I didn't read the OP's post, so um, I'll just leave this one here. Practicing the male form.

Wooot blue Sylvari! I love your Sylvari Amannelle! They always looks so innocent. And I hope we'll be able to choose a (pale) blue skin colour for Sylvari :D That would be so awesome.

I like that first charcoal drawing of yours Neo Nugget! ^^ I tried drawing with charcoal once but I just smudged everything all over the place haha. Apart from that charcoal is pretty awesome stuff! But charcoal is more for .. non-detail drawings I think?

That smoke photo really brings out the complexness of smoke! Nice shot Elu :D

And last but not least, this is for you Con_Artist:

Ok kidding. But seriously that drawing is awesome and you should have just continued drawing for these 4 years that passed. You would have been pro by this time.
I can't shade too, I just randomly toss in some shades without thinking of any lightsource! :')
Oh and by the way, I actually like the 'messy' lines. Sketchy drawings are always a win for me.

Just some GCSE stuff. Not great, at all really - I got a D :P


And it's not really a sketch, but I made a Walrus :D There's plenty of things wrong with this, like the colour? ;P It was meant to go grey - Yay clay!

Has anyone here tried using scratchboard or block prints?  It's great fun, especially if you like working with high contrast.  The materials can be a little hard to find though.

Here's something I drew my senior year when I was still contemplating about becoming an artist. I never finished it, even though all that was left were the legs. Though there are some smaller details that needed to be fixed.

BTW, I did it with just pencils. :zzz:

I am glade you made the right choice.  Afterall, its hard to be a artist when you don't have legs..............


anyhow.. good show.. want to see you sketch some fantasy drawings.

Really nice.  Very skillful.  Screatchboard is fun, but not easy to do.

i have been drawing since i was 5 years (never did drawing school tough)
the progres is slow but you need to keep trying, your lines are good but the proportions of the head and body needs to be reworked,
you learn it when you try

@Amannelle: It really isn't. That's just a shrunk version of the drawing, the original is pretty big! If you could see all of the smaller details, you would see how bad it is.

@actionjack: I still wonder what would have happened if I kept going for it. I already had a few works put on exhibit in Baltimore Museum of Art, so I was doing something good. :sweat:
I tried drawing more fantasy-based drawing some time last year, and I even made a few monster pieces, but by then I had lost my spark. Arts more of an "out of the blue," hobby. I pick up a pencil whenever I want, and just draw something. I don't really go for the 10+ hours of sitting in front of a blank sheet of paper ripping out my hair trying to figure out why I can't get an eye to point a certain way. I used to find it fun, but now it's tedious. :(

@Astrum Nitidus: You're really good! You have a very good grasp of male anatomy, and I can't wait to see more of your work! :)

Oh I like your ninja Astrum this position seems tricky but his arms are weird O.o seems like you just draw random lines on it and they seem too thin.

Trusty: lol, thanks. I stopped drawing mainly because I lacked the patience to sit for hours while working on a piece, and I also didn't have the discipline to practice everyday. I still don't, btw, but lately I've been getting the urge to draw my gw1 characters in their gw2 form.

Astrum Nitidus: The proportions are off, I know. No reference, no good sense of anatomy. I just went for it, really.

Here's another piece of mine that I made after Factions was released, where I played with watercolor. A few minutes into it I realized I had no idea what I was doing so I stopped and watercolor fail was created, lol. :D

ty, i have to say i started realy drawing humans this summer, mainly manga.
some drawings are the first try of the manga book from Christopher Hart which is a good source for the anatomy and positions. it is hard because i never did drawing school.

i didn't got far in the book (too much schoolwork :eek:)i have to practise a lot to draw good, but i am learning.
i originaly draw cars (still do) but the steady hand and look for detailes are the same :)
