    Default AT Tries His Hand At Art

    Exactly what it says on the tin. Also a sort of bad pun. *coughs* Seeing as how you draw with you hands and whatnot. Or at least I Do.

    So yeah. Some blind contour drawings to start things off with. (Sorry for the lack of quality, these were two big to scan.)

    The shoe. It needs some sort of symbol on it. Shoes like that don't exist anymore.

    Hmmm. OK, I guess I should post some more ... Interesting stuff.

    An OC of mine I hope to one day use in a webcomic. Although, of my few ideas, this is one of the less fleshed out ones.



    My friends all say it looks like something out of Power Rangers. Thoughts?

    Those are quite recognizable for blind contour drawings. Out of curiosity, how long do you think you spent on each of them?

    The first thing that sprung to mind when I saw your OC was He-Man. It's mostly the style that you've drawn him in, I imagine he wouldn't evoke such images if he was drawn differently. If you're going for that sort of style, I would say you've done a nice job.

    I'm looking forward to seeing more!

    Yeah, i could totally see that guy standing next to Rita Repulsa.

    (Blind contour drawing, hm? I'm... kinda suspicious of that. Sounds a lot like Drawing With The Right Side Of The Brain. (Or was it left?) )

    @Nix Nihilia: Why thank you! I think the shoe took me a little under an hour and then the I shaved about 10 minutes off that for the flower and another 10 minutes when doing the hand.

    Gotta' admit, I'm not so familiar with He-Man. And honestly I'm not sure what style I'm going for. Shonen-Manga-Esque, I suppose.

    @Domocheesky: Sweet.

    Part of it is to use the other side of your brain, yes. Blind contour means you don't look down at your drawing while you're making it. Another part of it is to just get better at not having to constantly go back and forth from your drawing to whatever it is you're drawing.

    So ... 2 more OCs from a different comic idea. (My much more fleshed out one.)


    Kaden, the protagonist and ...


    Ben (the Preacherman), the deuteragonist.

    Your OCs look interesting, but their poses look stiff like they're action figures (it's a problem I have too). I think the legs aren't quite right too - like they aren't properly holding the weight of the figure (again a problem I have ). I'm not sure what exactly I'd do to fix it because it's something I'm figuring out at the moment as well.

    Edit: Your line work is a heck of lot better than mine though.

    Mmmmm. I see what you mean. I think the rigidity is bound to happen when you just have a plain white BG, but noted none the less.

    Trying out another costume for Kaden ... I can't believe people used to dress this way.


    And messing around with a more "fluid" pose.

    The characters look a lot better in the fluid poses. In the first one though, I'd try to make it more apparent that his leg is forward and bent; under the coat it just looks short.

    I'd apologize for the long gap between posts, but no one ever looks in here, so it doesn't matter! *cough* Anyway, I had been doing a really quick self-portrait/caricature of myself as practice and somewhere along the line it sort of turned into a bit of troll face...

    Some alleged "anatomy" practice.



    A hand I did in charcoal made earlier this year in an art class. Just got it back. Wish I had a better scanner.



    I've got some bigger pieces from that art class that I'm actually pretty proud of, but I have no clue how to get a nice digital copy.

    The hand is like a hitchhiker's as he stands on the street on a dark, stormy night, and as you reach out the window to shake his hand it falls off and he gives it to you, and his other hand is a hook, and his face is also a hook. Also, top man has no top head, which I have to assume is an accurate portrayal of his self, and thus I respect him for it.

    Maybe the bigger images you could take a picture of and upload that picture of the picture? It might be lower quality, but they'd be up, eh? Also, how long did you have after your test that you had time to draw a face and torso-half?
