So, yeah... It's been a while, hasn't it?

I wish I had more to offer, but here's what I've got. A buncha Nathaniels.

Compared to my prior Nathaniel piece (link), I think I've made some progress...

Oh, and I guess I'm back on Snafu now, for what it's worth.

Huh. Almost six months and only one- NO I ALREADY DID THIS.

I finally submitted some art again. *fanfare*

Absorb it with your eyeholes.

Random Pokemon drawings I've done over the last [two] weeks. Feel free to identify them, 'cuz I'm not gonna.

Well, except for the best two of the group: Larvitar and Torchic.

Reference of Coos' character Gwenllian, drawn in my style as precursor for something else.

Could be better, but... meh.

You art looks good but please stop cutting the legs out of your pictures.
Also try some new poses.

Re: Acktoo's Art Thread

I... wholeheartedly agree.

Fixed her hair. Literally.

I suck at costumes. Also, planning what I draw. (Hence the messy quality.)

Arms are a bit small...

Re: Acktoo's Art Thread

Next!

An important character from a different series.

I'm not the best in regards to designing costumes (I would love to be, tho.) so she's wearing a half-assed swimsuit.

The getup is not entirely uncharacteristic for Natalia, though, as she has a particular affinity towards water.

Acktoo I realise legs and feet are very hard but avoiding them will only make them more difficult.
Also you may want to switch up some of your drawing materials.
Try Staedtler pencils with a neaded eraser for sketching.
Maybe get some prismacolor liners for finer lines.
For paper try Strathmore sketchbooks or drawing pads.
I tend to use the drawing pads more for sketching.
This should run you about 60 bucks all together but if you shop smart you can save some money.
Graded pencils can usually be found around drafting supplies.
Also the Dick Blick online store offers a pretty good selection of items.
Their clearance section usually has some nice things too.

And here are some free art books for you so you can educate yourself abit more on design and whatnot.

Also, the reason you might want to change you paper is because paper with more grit or lbs can take more of a beating so it'll alow you more freedom whilst drawing.
Try to keep it within the 60 to 100 lbs range.

Re: Acktoo's Art Thread

Thu Apr 26, 2012 3:49 pm

Eh, it's not so much that I'm intentionally avoiding them; rather that I'm having placement issues, likely due to lack of forethought. (I may have to switch to larger sheets.)

That's a pretty helpful post you have there; I'll be sure to look into it.

They look good Ack and I love the girls hair in the first drawing.
But you keep cutting out the legs.
If your having trouble with planning try making two lines.
One where the figure stops and one where it end.
Keep yourself in those boundaries and you should be able to decide how big you want you figure to be.

Re: Acktoo's Art Thread- Did you forget about me?

Fri Nov 30, 2012 7:33 pm

You're assuming he's not doing that intentionally, though

Re: Acktoo's Art Thread- Did you forget about me?

Fri Nov 30, 2012 8:50 pm

He said before he's having lack of forethought.
By making the start and start points before he starts drawing he should be able to fit the whole figure in.
And I already asked him if he wasn't just avoiding the legs.
I'm sure he's just having planning problems.

Re: Acktoo's Art Thread- Did you forget about me?

Fri Nov 30, 2012 9:02 pm

Oh, hmm, all right. The cut off at the waists just made it look really intentional I guess, haha

Re: Acktoo's Art Thread- Did you forget about me?

Sat Dec 01, 2012 12:37 am

You're both right. The cutoff is intentional, but I really need to draw some stuff with legs.

I wish I could take credit for the girl's hair, but she's not my character: http://cooscoos.deviantart.com/gallery/?q=ria#/d57izjr
