    Default Shades of Gray's Art Gallery

    This is a thread for hosting any particularly good art I do, as well as entries for the CHALLENGE.

    I've been doing OOTS art for the better part of... four years now?

    I hope you enjoy. Feel free to make requests, but as some might tell you, I am notoriously bad with schedules. I'm hoping to change that, and a public place for me to be yelled at seems like the best way.

    Some of my art (In most recent to older):
    Gwendolyn Price (Bleachitp Reborn)
    Spoiler
    Show

    Eirene Klossner (Bleachitp Reborn)
    Spoiler
    Show

    Generic Adventuring Party (For a short-lived custom setting)
    Spoiler
    Show

    Iona (Curse Of Dust - Strawberryman)
    Spoiler
    Show

    Eirene Klossner and Satoshi Tsukami (Bleachitp)
    Spoiler
    Show


    This of course doesn't include everything, but it's a nice start.

    About my art: I use InkScape. For some reason in the last year I have started tending towards more muted tones. I often look at a colour and say "needs more gray/brown." I usually draw female characters because they have more interesting outfits.

    Neat stuff. I might try that InkScape sometime if no one posts any trophies for my Spy Wars players. Would you do some please?

    I've said it before, your character designs are awesome.

    But your "generic" adventuring party has nine members, one of whom is a warforged?

    Do you reuse hair? Because Gwendolyn's looks a lot like that monk's.

    Well the "generic" adventuring party is like that of Regdar, Lidda, etc. in the PHB, they were designed to show off the base classes/races of the setting.

    Half-Elf sorcerer, Elf Ranger, Human Barbarian, Human Cleric, Human Bard, Warforged Paladin, Halfling Monk, Gnome Artificer, Fungal Elf Rogue.

    I do. Hair is a b**** to draw, so I reuse it when I can (with minor alterations)

    That is beautiful, Shades.

    Simply beautiful. Especially the hair, I can for some reason not get that right myself.

    In fact it's so good it makes me want to join BleachITP, but that would require me to watch an entire Anime series. Not that I wouldn't but It'd take some time.

    I have watched 3 episodes of Bleach. I have been in the Bleachitp RP for more than a year. Watching the anime is not by any means a prerequisite.

    The Challenge - Week 1
    Themes: Cannons, End of an Age, Pinned Down.

    For the first piece I decided to go for a new character. Loosely translating cannons to muskets, I figured the punk movement is the end of an age in a sense:

    These are great! I love the amount of detail you put into each one.

    I'm personally a fan of earth tones - it makes everything fit better together, it's more pleasing for the eye, and it's the better choice if you wanna lurk around hiding before you stab your enemies.

    The design is really good (okay, maybe I'm a closet punk-lover, so what? ). The striped shirt is a very nice touch, and I can't believe the amount of detail you put into that gun.

    Do you want constructive critique as well, or should I save myself the trouble of annoying you?

    Awesome!

    I noticed that there's something off about the way the punk girl holds the gun. The centre of mass makes it seem like she would drop it.

    On a more general level, your girls look a little (just a little) chubby. Now, I'm all for different body types in fiction, but I wasn't sure if it was intentional, so I thought I'd mention it.

    It's minor stuff, but I hope it's useful anyway

    It's not intentional... and to be honest I still can't see it. If I make the body thinner then the head is too big, and I can't make it thinner (it has to be pretty much perfectly circular) and I can't reduce the size, or it starts to look too small. It's a difficult balancing act.

    I can't really see this chubbiness you are talking about...

    EDIT: Piece #2 for THE CHALLENGE is up.

    Hmm.... Okay, I've been staring and comparing for quite some time now, and I'm still not entirely sure where I get the chubbiness from, but hey, I owe you at least a shot at explaining.

    I'm used to Rich's stick figures, where there's a sway in the back, whereas you draw actual waists (this is a detail I really, really like, btw!)
    But I think, maybe, the waist is a bit too high for it too look like an actual waist rather than the last thin point before the tummy starts bulging.

    As I said, I'm not entirely sure if this is the reason, but it's the closest I've got. Man, it's frustrating having the what and not the why

    Edit: Oh, and really cool new art! I love the red patch of hair.

    No particular reason. I have participated in the past, a long time ago, and I did not really care for it. Unless a certain theme really interests me I won't be taking part.
