Hmm? by Hidden-Insanity Hmm? by Hidden-Insanity
Lame title is lame.

Hah...I finally finished something after...*checks* three months :dummy:...

Sooo this took abnormally long because a) I actually endured drawing the lineart, b) I experimented, c) I actually drew in a background (mind-boggling, right?), and d) I accidentally closed it after spending about one to two hours shading the hair without saving. Needless to say, I've learned to save fairly often now. ._."
When in doubt, draw the sky. :icondummylaplz:

Read: sorry for the lame background >.>"

Some background is better than no background D:<

xD True, unless the background takes away from the subject. =P (Which is what I was afraid of; when I started filling in the background (the tree, first), I was wondering if the styles would result in a weird contrast :c Thankfully, it came out all right.)

Holy cow, Vox! You're coloring and shading abilities are amazing! I can tell you put a lot of effort into this. Where did you learn to be so good? :wow:

Ugh, I wish programs had an autosave or recovery function. I honestly can't remember to constantly save. Of course, after I lose something, I save like a fiend until I forget and lose something again. I hate that. :ohnoes:

Thank you~ ^^ Yup, I put a lot of time and effort into it (partially because I knew it would be the first thing I've finished in ages, hah...) I look at references and tutorials sometimes, but for the most part, I teach myself through experimentation. ;P

I know, right? ;-; It takes up a lot of memory and space, though.
Hehe, that's...probably what's going to happen to me ^^; Savesavesave for the next few drawings...two weeks later: "NOOOOO MY WORK IS...GONE! :noes:"

It's good that all that effort shows. lol, I'm the same way. I always wish I could draw more but I always end up doing so little. I really should use references more often. I just figure that I'll magically get better and fix my problems as time goes on. :XD:

Good point, lol. And the bigger the drawing, the more likely my computer will crash! =P lol, it's such a vicious cycle! XD

Haha, I think part of improvement is seeming to get better by magic (assuming that you're practicing). I've improved a lot since the last time I was active before this bout, even though all I've been doing is sketching and rarely finishing anything. :dummy: Well, there's the stuff I do in art, but...two different types of drawings, so I don't know how interrelated those skills are :P

It is, isn't it. :noes:

Practice does make magic improvement! I love how it happens though. (of course, we'd be screwed as a species if we didn't magically improve). :w00t:

But if I'm not good with shading in clothing, I doubt I will magically learn how to shade it in after practicing. Some things must only accept observation and experimentation. :hmm:

Two different types of drawing? You mean realism instead of anime style?

Our minds may be brilliant in some ways, but in other ways we just can't change. :XD:

I sucked at anything below the neck, but I've gotten better since then mostly by practicing :dummy: I did look up tutorials and the like, but practice made up a large portion of improvement. Additionally, learning to think logically about things is also a huge help. When I get stuck with folds and shading in clothing, I take a break, sit back, and think about the dimensions and how the cloth would act and interact. :)

Mhmm, realism and anime/manga style.

It was weird. I have trouble drawing the faces right and so I tried to emulate other styles of different people but I couldn't do it right. Sometimes you have to do what feels right for you, I guess. :hmm: I agree, thinking logically about the way things would look is a big help. Wow, you're very incredible if you can just think about it like that! When I try to imagine the folds and shading in clothing, I can never come up with something that looks realistic. ;P

Do you draw realism a lot? Which do you draw more? I drew this really great piece of a boy from Africa who sent me his picture (it was for this kind of organization), but I've never been able to make a good realism piece before or since. =D

Ah, that's too bad. :shrug: It's always fun to explore your options, though. :nod:

Oh, no, I'm a far cry from incredible :blush: I usually have to think for a long time, maybe even position things nearby similarly to how I want to draw something. What I usually end up with is merely "okay" in my eye :P (For the most part; there are times where I magically draw all the right lines xD)

My time is usually split in half between realism and anime/manga since my art class calls for realism ;P My free time is dominated by anime/manga, though. I like both of them, but anime style takes far less time and is much looser. (Do you still have it? :o I'd love to see it :))
