I like drawing, And I would like some opinions. Drop a line on what you think, I thank you if you do. You can even insult....I will post them if I draw them, so there will be more. I also have a backstock of them.
I do have to say this, my images are large as hell, grainy, and sideways. HP is f***ing taunting me.

But I guess you changed her mind.
Well I should have known it wouldn't be all right,
But I can't live without her
So I won't even try...
And if I get drunk, then I'll pass out on the floor now baby.
Cause you won't bother me no more.
And if you're drinking, well you know that you're my friend and I say
I guess I'll have myself a beer."

Hello again Walter,
I am an artist too and I'm always curious about what people are working on. Unfortunately, I’m behind a secured network connection and I can’t go to Photobucket. Would you be willing to E-mail me some of those images? My e-mail should be available to members. I had fun chatting with you yesterday. I’ll see you soon.

Walter,
I got your pictures and they look pretty good. Haahaa... your butt is catching fire. I can see you are beginning to get a handle on perspective and they all have a lot of personality. I really like the hallway you drew on the “Walter” sketch, with the bad guy walking towards your character. Inking is hard, even with the right tools. I never really got the hang of it. So I don’t draw anime/manga style, which usually has very clean, stylized inking. I’m afraid I can’t help you much there. But I did enjoy sketching with a plain, old bic ball-point pen. You can really force it to give you many different shades and thickness of line if you learn to work with it. I also developed a zen philosophy when I drew with a pen. Everything was permanent so I learned to draw without erasing. I gave in to the fact that nothing is perfect and just kept drawing anyway. You might enjoy that.

You should see if you can get a set of pencils of various hardness’s to help with your shading, which is also coming along really well. H2 is the hardest/lightest; 6B is the softest/darkest; B is closest to a #2 pencil. You just need to play around with them. You start with the hardest pencils in the set-up to give you a light guide. Start with smooth, light strokes at first so you can always erase something that isn’t working. Then refine the drawing when you know what you want, with the softer pencils which will become darker the softer they are rated.

When you start sketching something original, every instructor will tell you to work light, loose, and fast. I can see you probably like to start with the head and eyes. I used to always start with eyes. I wouldn’t even draw the head. But this leaves many parts of the body/face skewed or out of perspective.
* I want you to try sketching one of your original characters in a very general way. Define the layout of the entire body before you lay down any hard lines so that you can see how the limbs and head are arranged. You don’t need to worry about creating a dynamic pose yet, just make the limbs body and head in proportion. Once the layout “feels” right, then you begin to outline the form define muscle and add clothing on top. People have a very visceral response to what they see; you can feel when something is out of proportion when you look at it, even if you don’t know exactly why. Finding out why takes some time and practice.

I also started drawing by referencing comic books I liked and artists I admired. That is a great way to learn. Your Ayane sketch is right on. I recognized her immediately. When I decided to begin creating my own characters I used photos from magazines, and the internet. Thank you, Vogue. :D

I want to let you in on a little secret. There is no shame in tracing. Even the professionals do it. Granted they usually trace from their own work. But if you look at a picture and wonder, “How did they do that?” tracing can help you figure it out. It also trains your hand to move where you want it to go, and helps you to keep your lines steady. It’s all about training muscle memory. When you have drawn enough, your hand almost draws on its own, and that’s where the real fun starts.

I hope you can find something here to help you. Keep at it.

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Angel_Melfina on Mon Nov 26, 2007 8:28 am

Those are pretty good, Walter. In my opinion, you seem to draw girls better than guys. At least, that's my conclusion from seeing all of these. The pictures of Ayane and Asuka I think are the best, with Rei not far behind. I hope you will continue to work hard on learning to improve your drawing skills and keep us updated with better and better pictures.

I am by no means an amazing artist, but it's taken years of learning by myself here and there to improve the way I draw. I still don't draw perfectly, as you can see from my picture in our Chain Trade topic, but I've improved drastically from just tracing, studying the body in books, and practicing a LOT. My fiance is an artist, so he helps me a lot. I'm currently trying to teach him how to draw women, because his women just come out looking like transvestites or something. And soon, he'll be trying to teach me how to draw guys, because mine just come out looking gay. That's what we both get for growing up drawing just one type of thing. What have I learned from this? We need variety!

Anywho, point being, practice, and also do some research on everything from how to do clothes to perspective. And quidhala is right with his advice. It's so good, I'm going to start doing everything he listed above as well. I would also suggest even trying to draw things other than people. My fiance had me do some exercises where I just drew whatever was in front of me (like when doing a still-life) while sitting at the kitchen table. That helped me learn about perspective and shading mostly, not to mention how to draw inanimate objects so that I could have backgrounds for my drawings. One time, we went to the park and he had me sit on a hill and draw what was in front of me, whether it was a pond, a little forest, or a grassy hill. You can do this anywhere! I often did it while I sat in class, where I'd draw exactly what I saw in front of me.

I'm not insulting your work. I don't want you to think that, but there is always room for improvement in any kind of skill that we have. I hope you will keep practicing. You have some real potential. I can see it in your work.
Today, Friday, October 10, 2009, is my last day on RolePlayGateway.com.
Everyone give me lots of love, because I shall be handing lots out. <3

Thank you for your advice Mel. And believe me, I don't feel insulted.

I know what you mean by the whole oppsite sex drawings. Rei looked like a guy on crystal meth the first time I drew her. I won't be posting that one.....

My ability to draw women however was lots of work. That Asuka picture took forever. As a guy who likes to draw for people(because I can't afford to buy gifts at christmas), I had to learn how to draw women. I wish I still had the cartoon I drew for this girl. It was a nice picture, and even in manga form everyone knew it was her.

It's good that you can take criticism, Walter. It can make or break you sometimes. You definately need it if you want to get any better.

I LOVE your comment about Rei looking like a guy on crystal meth. I've been sitting in a cafe this evening so that I could be online on my laptop, and it sooo made me burst out laughing in this dark corner by myself.

As I said before, I hope that you will keep drawing and posting pictures for us to see. I think you've made a wonderful transformation in just the images that you've allowed us to view here. I know you'll continue to get better.

I was debating whether or not to put this one on. I didn't know how many people would laugh. It's not like it's racist or anything,( it was a quote from ATHF when they were in a museum, and Shake asks Meatwad this when they were looking at the Hiroglyphs. He proceeds to flip him off while saying it.) but it was still questionable. If people decide to tell me this was too bad for the site, I will get rid of it.

Interesting story, a teacher saw me drawing this........

It really does look like a shirt with some of the design being covered. I try to do that on some of my pics but a lot of times it doesn't work out the way I wanted.
