Gmoose's Thread O' Art Mar. 20th, 2011 @ 11:26 PM Reply

It's been quite a while since I last posted anything on Newgrounds but think it's about time that I started up again. Last year I was attending a school in which I found everything too easy, as such I had a lot of time on my hands to do whatever, with that time I doodled like a maniac. Quickly filling up a binder's worth of drawings that were moderately okay. This year however, after having changed school's I find myself with less time for doodling. As such I have to dedicate more time to one specific drawing so that the end result is something I can be proud of.

So to start things off I am posting a current W.I.P. that I started on earlier today. For anyone that has seen any of my previous drawing I hope you can notice that I have been studying some anatomy in an attempt to better my drawings.

This particular drawing is that of a human that was genetically modified by a contagion which severely deformed him and left him emaciated, however it has bestowed upon him a cunning mind, and abilities which could rival those of any superhuman.

Note: The terrible quality is due to me having to take a picture of it instead of scanning it in(as I have yet to buy a scanner), as you can tell it's not a very good camera.

I spy, with my little eyes, a posterize. Try to avoid instant photoshop filters, because they never add quality to an image!

Otherwise, it's a good thing you're looking into anatomy; there is still a long way to go. The general proportions of the character displayed take away a lot of believability (even with the backstory of mutation...).

Yeah, it actually looked worse before I made the lines more visible, and I just recently started on my improvement, and I think its great that someone as good as you is actually critiquing my work, I'll try to post a better version tomorrow, with some more work done of course.

Yes I was, I remember you as well, didn't think anyone actually remembered me, but it's nice to see that I have some friends here. It's great to be back.

I don't remember the reason, but I remember that it eventually became full of only my posts. I didn't realize it was still here though... I thought they deleted threads after no one visits in a while.

Also I just came back from the store, and I finally bought myself a scanner. So here is an updated copy of my current W.I.P. Tell me what you think of the quality, as well as what you think might improve my work.

Here's a dinosaur that I drew before spring break. It originally started as a head, and then when I was drawing it somehow became a dinosaur. RAWR!

I'm actually surprised I still have this, but I remember posting a bad copy of it before, so here's the original.
I call it The Siege of Metrina

I'm not entirely sure what you mean...

Anyways here's a phoenix that I drew.

As you can tell it's a bit draconian in nature but that's just how I felt like drawing it.

I've heard of oversized swords before, but that's just ridiculous. Damn thing is bigger than him.

Well this guy controls gravity(hence the black hole next to him...), which essentially means that he can also control the density of objects at will. So that sword is like a paperclip to him.

Oh and this here is a concept design for a shape shifting weapon.

Point blank, you need anatomy practice. It's cool that you're designing weapons and what not for a story, and the weapons look okay.

But what's going to happen is you're going to have pages and pages of weapons and when it comes time to draw people using them, you're going to have bad results.

http://bbsimg.ngfiles.com/14/22604000/ng bbs4d8acc5b9301d.jpg

Not to over-analyze this, but this drawing says a lot about where you're at as an artist. You're doing a lot to compensate for what (I think) you're not comfortable with. Baggy clothing, baggy pants, and faceless. Everything to avoid the need for convincing anatomy.

You're continuing to draw monsters and creatures and weapons. I'm not discouraging that. By all means draw what you like. BUT you NEED to draw what you're uncomfortable with too. And post the results. You might get people mocking it or insulting it, but that's okay because it doesn't matter. Just keep trying.

Right now you're avoiding.
