    Lightbulb Arts and Crafts Showcase ?: Back for more

    This thread used to exist, as you can see here. (former thread)

    As of the first post of that thread, it looks like there was more before it. Can anyone else find those so I know what number this is?

    Anyway, here we go:
    People have been talking about remaking this thread for all those amazing artists who have no where to show off their work. Therefore I created this thread. Here, you can show off any of your non OOTS style artwork. It doesn't have to be drawn. It could be anything as long as it is some sort of art. Begin showing off your amazing work.

    Here is some work I have made out of magic cards:

    I like that person, impressive. I don't see why ponies can't be shown off here. I just wonder why there isn't a pony drawing thread yet. Ponythread Learns to Draw isn't even about Ponies!

    I do find that kind of odd. The closest there is is the pony avatar thread. I've been thinking of working in that thread some, even though I've never taken pony requests before.

    Ponythread learns to draw was originally ponythread denizens (and anyone else who wanted in), but subject was free. Then everyone left, so it basically became my thread that others very occasionally post a picture. I admittedly don't do too many ponies, maybe once a week or the like on average.

    The avatar thread has slowed dramatically too, though it was never too fast.

    Well back when Gnomish was still around she had her own thread, but still posted in the OotS Style/Fanart Showcase thread, so I'd say it's fine. There's precedence.

    I really like that last one, you should use it as your avata... oh. The arm connects to the body weirdly.

    Found this while digging through my old files. It was supposed to be full colored, with several monsters surrounding her, but I abandoned it after I realized my coloring style did not work well with it. So I guess she's just petrified now.

    I swear I still had the file with the monsters in it hanging around somewhere...

    Please don't ask me how long this took to draw. The answer is too long. I also hate robes now.

    Ok, other than the face (It's good, but there's something in either the brow or the nose that bothers me) that is awesome to the max.

    I went back to fix her face way too many times to the point where I eventually just gave up. I hate profile views almost as much as I hate robes now.

    Not that I don't sympathise, but I usually find that means I'm wasting time. If its not hyper detailed it shouldn't take long and if you don't want photo-realism you may be wrong about how much detail you think you need.

    You'll just have to learn to love them then.

    I assume you don't have a reference? Looks like you just added folds where you could, the bottom works quite well but you need to shade the inside darker. It would have to be a quite thin material to crease like that. Did you practice from drapery? That might be giving you some wrong ideas of how clothes generally work. Kimonos are not togas. The folds on that sleeve make little sense, they seem to be conforming to her muscles which is impossible unless her shirt is sleeveless. Her arm also kind of just comes forwards without resting on her breast/side despite clearly being positioned so that it should, it looks convincing enough on her lap but its just ignoring everything higher.

    To be honest its the shirt that really doesn't work. Your other stuff has breasts that just look wrong too. The frill down her cleavage really shouldn't go straight like that since she really shouldn't have much cleavage in that shirt and it seems to turn too far back after that, as though she were leaning forwards (which is at odds with everything else) or she her belly was crater shaped. No one has a belly further back then their neck when they're sitting up straight. Bits of her shirt look wet, they wouldn't cling like that otherwise.

    Her furthest away should is a very important thing to get right. I think I messed up in the same area in that pic I did above due to being focused on doing anything I could with that program and not using any reference at all.

    The legs aren't so bad, the torso doesn't mesh with them that well. Did you use a reference for the legs and then have to make up the rest due to wanting the clothes you imagined? That can be a big problem. Sometimes I feel like i spend more time reference hunting than drawing. Don't want to treat you like an idiot by pointing you to a reference since you clearly do practice. I mean, I'm not even on deviant art so who am I to tell people to use deviant art's search functions.

    Also the buckle on that book has no mass.

    Hands are quite good, ignoring the blocky art style.

    You may be suffering extra pain on that front thanks to your art style. Only really obvious problem other than the eyes is the blocky chin.

    She shouldn't be in perfect profile anyway, not the way her book is turned.

    I did a search in resources/stock photos on deviant art for 'profile', checked my own saved references folder and got my mouse again and drew these quickly in paint.



    Unfortunately most of the male photos were terrible resolution, perpetrating the 'guys don't have eye lashes' myth, though generally I find drawing low resolution eyes very interesting from a style perspective.

    Basically you just haven't successfully reflected how different profile eyes look to front view eyes. Your eyelashes are all swept backwards like she's had an ocular comb over when they should be facing forwards. Which you may have intended as an elf trait but I can only offer advice for drawing humans.

    Some of you might or might not remember my aberrant bee thing.
    Anyway, redid it in a more realistic style that randomly happened to appear in my head as I was drawing.

    Or, more accurately, I just started drawing in a random unknown style and seems like I unconsciously redrew that one avvie.
