You make me sound like a bad person. I wasn’t forcing you to stay up and finish. I didn’t care how long you took or if you even did it. You’re the one who asked for suggestions, and I gave you some. That also means it wasn’t a request, like you complained about in the descriptions.

And really, if you’re getting that defensive, then you obviously care if I believe you.

Thanks! And I never learned how to do hair, I’m guessing you have to do every strand? ;-;

Results in 2 months… I think I’ll try it. Now I just need to get a sketchbook.

To be honest, I wasn’t very convinced either. You can’t just go from your city piece to those cat pieces in a week. Unless you took your time uploading them, it’s just not possible. Even with art classes, because it takes a lot of time and effort (like maybe several months of active practice). There weren’t even any “in between” quality of work, which leads me to doubt you.

But enough on that, I’m interested to see how those game characters turned out.

2 months and you can shade that well? That’s… wow. I’m really jealous now.

I find some of your pieces… disturbing. In a good way. But I think it’s just the excessive use of black. My favorite’s gotta be the one with the house in the middle of the sea. The stairs are well done, and the shading on the rocks is amazing. Plus the reflection is pretty well done.

Topic: The Arts / Character Concepts +more

Already commented on your dA profile, but I’ll comment here too ^^

Really love the concepts. I checked out RWBY and I can see why you were inspired to do something similar. You need to work on your proportions and shading, but all in all it’s pretty impressive. The colors are nice and the weapons do seem functional x) I like the action going on in the last two pieces, though I’d like to see the former be colored. As for the latter, great job on the scythe. It looks amazing _ however you need to work on the hood. As it is, it looks pretty flat.

Can’t wait to see Rose and Emerald in action :D

What’s your definition of “not too crazy”?

If you’re looking for something to draw, try Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden), Lara Croft (Tomb Raider), or Link (Legend of Zelda).

Topic: The Arts / Paintings: feel free to give your opinion

Personally I like the second one best. Idk what it is, I think it’s just the shading that got me… especially on mouth. Really, great job.

On the first one, I love how you can see all the brush strokes, though the missing eyebrows bother me. I’d say work on the lips, but you proved yourself in the other paintings :)

You’re able to do faces and shading pretty well, but you may want to work on that profile view. The idea behind it is pretty cool though ^^ I’d love to see more like it.

Got my own thread, so I’m not gonna post my art :p

I feel like I’ve visited your dA before. Anyway, pretty nice, but the pictures are really blurry so you may want to invest in camera or a scanner.

Well. There’s nothing to say that hasn’t already been said. Used to be fun, now pointless and tedious. They even started cracking down on hackers, so idk why they won’t restore the gold in UR.

You’d think that with all these negative comments they’d have done something by now.

Since when has anything but Pokemon, Animal Crossing and Super Mario come out that’s good on the DS? Never

Seriously, if you think that, then you probably don’t play many DS games. There’s Phoenix Wright, Castlevania, Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Trauma Center, to name a few. And yeah, Zelda too.

I keep forgetting I have a thread.

Thanks! And oh, THAT’S what’s wrong with it, I honestly could not find it the problem and it bugged me so much. I kinda do mouths on paper, just never digitally.

Topic: The Arts / My Concept Art Show Reel

Not a particular fan of sci-fi, but your work is amazing! My favorite’s gotta be the blue soldier. The concept is beautiful, flames are amazing, and the lighting is wonderful. Plus I like blue xD anyway, great job, it’s people like you I aspire to compete with ^^

Is there any rules against bumping old threads? If so, I’m sorry.

I think I’ll try that out. I haven’t really been working on anything lately though, I’m really rusty.

I feel like a failure on this one because I couldn’t capture his maniacal smile.

Completely agree with pete, drawing by tablet can be disappointing. I suggest you only get a tablet only when you’re comfortable with your level. Through personal experience, I can say that getting a tablet made me stop art for a while. I wanted to jump ahead and be a pro, but after realizing that I can’t do that, I went back and practiced some more on paper. I still don’t use my tablet often. Keep working on improving, and don’t rush. Work with your own pace. Try out some different styles, check out tutorials, and figure out which helps you more.

Thanks for the comments!

Well actually, in the game I play, the black tribal designs are usually glowing. I decided not to use it, but I suppose adding them would have added an aura-like fee to it. I’ll play with it and update that later on.

I plan on making game art! I enjoy fantasy design and weapons, so of course I will :D

Heheh, I only did her without a face because I couldn’t get it to look right. So I changed the entire picture to fit my mistake :D And no, no real tutorials. I’ve seen some speed painting, but that didn’t really help with anything aside seeing other people’s style. I’ve looked at tutorials, but whenever I try to copy it just ends up horrible, so I gave up on that. I just look at amazing art and try to break it down in my head. That seems to work better for me. Gaah, anatomy is so hard! I’ll work on it, but I’m still proud I can do that with only 2 years of it :D Thanks and I’ll make more!

Well, this is basically the rest of my gallery. I’ve been posting them in chunks so I don’t attack you guys with some 20 or so pieces at once xD Enjoy! My next piece probably won’t be soon. Unless I choose to upload one of my hand drawn stuff, art is going to be slow :)


I actually changed this, I defined the lines on the tree, grass, and cracks by adding a brighter lighting.

And I’m not proud of these, because I didn’t really bother.

I don’t have a scanner xD I use a camera, so most of the time it doesn’t come out too good.

I suppose the fictional anatomy comes from my gaming. I’ll work on it. And ok, next time I do a zombie, no stitches. You’re exactly right about Wolverine, I didn’t use a reference. I just did it and it turned out similar. I’ll take your advice and redo it someday. I just kinda did the b/w thing for scenery practice. I didn’t mean for it to go any further. As for the weapons, they’re meant to be different from each other. I do weapons because I play a game that accept player suggestions, and each of their weapons differ significantly. But yes, the last two are meant to be “aura-like”. I’ll do a weapon set someday so they all look alike.

I’ll be sure to take an art class, maybe next year for school.
