    Default Prime's Art Thread III

    Previous thread here. Oh, and DeviantArt link.


    So, my art has had certain... flaws.

    I decided today I'd try to prove I can do better. However, it's been about three months since the last post in my old thread, so here we are.

    Well, if you're trying not to do something flat, then you'll need background, shading, or both.

    Also, found this through your "shameless advertising".

    The problem was "fat", not flat.

    Oops.

    Well then, the arms look better, but I can't tell about the legs; skirts tend to cover that up. The torso looks better though; the flatter, thinner chest looks better than the stuff you have on deviantart. But it's tied with this one.

    My thought process for that pic went
    Spoiler

    I think I'll draw something.
    A leg. That leg is too well-proportioned to scrap, I'll have to draw around it.
    What pose could I draw around it? Ah, I'll have them balance on something.
    Okay, who should this be? A Touhou character. Marisa? Cirno? Reimu? Nah, I already drew Reimu. Marisa could be balancing on her broom.
    Dangit, no-one will see that I can draw upper legs now!

    Now you kinda get the hang of proportion, next, try to vary the line weight.

    Just remember that limbs aren't thicker than head, and bodies are just about 1,5-2 heads thick sideways (except for spacemarines and such), and you'll be fine.

    I like to pose, too.

    As for something to draw, I'd say Kaguya sitting around and doing somethine NEET-y. Sitting people are hard to draw.

    Her right arm looks quite twisted, otherwise it's not bad at all.

    yes, as I said, keep the limbs at about half the head's width.

    really, the head is the easiest way to keep track of proportion is simply to look at the head. height, torso width, length, all can be easily compared to the head.

    Still have the poofy limbs thing. Or rather had, as these are old.

    Anything new drawn recently?

    They used to be poofier. And blurrier. And the hips were ridiculous. Mainly I just squashed things horizontally.

    Anything new drawn recently?
    That depends. What are the rules on nudity here?

    EDIT: Or I suppose I could post this masterpiece.

    Possibly pointless insert: Use a raw skeleton first to arange the pose and proportions of a body. It makes things a lot easier.




    Second insert: streamline the body first, then add definition (if necessary). Females tend to be more on the "soft and straight lines" side of things.

    I've been meaning to do some Touhou avs, because it's weird to draw three "proper" pics without having any.

    Available for adoption, if anyone wants it.

    I hadn't drawn any avs for a while. I've drawn Touhou pics in this thread, but no Touhou avs.

    Hey Prime. the latest comment in my thread reminded me on something that I should link.

    These two are my favourite drawing tutorial that I've ever found in DA. though, calling it tutorial might give people wrong idea. It's more to general 'how to draw better' that should give people ideas after they got the first step of drawing.

    I hope this could be useful for you as it was for me.
