Morthagg makes things. Mar. 22nd, 2011 @ 01:13 PM Reply

I was thinking about making my own art thread for a while now, but I kept putting it off because I'm not good enough to make this a tread in which people just come to gawk over the art, but I'm not total crap either and I probably won't bloom into a pretty flower by all the suggestions given to me in this thread. I'm already kind of rusted stuck in my drawing habits. Sad, sad.
But the truth is this site has given me a lot of inspiration ever since I joined it (which wasn't that long ago) and I bet I could get at least a tiny bit better by the artistic insights given here. I'd appreciate them greatly, of course.

I decided to start this thread by, from now on, posting everything I draw in the sketchbook I bought about a month ago. Even the things I'd rather hide. That'll teach me to try and finish something, at least.

Also, I tend to ramble. You noticed? Here's the first page of my sketchbook! Selfportrait on a train.

Next page (I flipped it to save you from straining a muscle) are some sketches of a character for the wonderful Project Denovo, of which I'm part. Mr. Mob Boss apparently only has two emotions: cynicism and anger.
For better quality and detail: Dumpity

Oh, and the finished bosses, if you like:
Dumpity cynical
Dumpity angry

Awesome stuff, cool that you have a place to call your own now ;)
I misread Mob Boss as Bob Ross... thought you missed the point by a lot...

Okay, I'm probably a lot more nervous over starting this thread than anyone should be, and it's making me read that comment in an extremely sarcastic voice :(
But thank you if I'm just being paranoid. More stuff is coming up.

Humbleness is always pleasent, but don't hide your light under a bushel. Your art is pretty cool. And I would love to see the self portrait completely finished someday, I like the colour scheme.

Page nùmero tres: jumpity.
The reason this was shaded is all thanks to Newgrounds, really. I was sick and tired of my drawings just staying line art because I was convinced I sucked at shading, while there are some very nicely shaded drawings here. So I tried it again. And now I can't stop. augh

Well you did a good job shading it... could prolly be a bit bolder... darker darks etc. but its great as it is... the left leg bugs me a bit ... cant really figure it out.. with his pants really low prolly and his but showing.. but that would really limit you in your jumping capabilities..

Thank you! I'm just kind of prepared for the worst, I guess. This is the internet after all..
And that's my biggest problem: finishing things. When I'm coming close to finishing something, I just block and go "shit, better stop before I ruin it" :D Maybe I'll try though.

Yay! Finally your own thread, you sad panda! Keep dem arts comin'. :) (Although I'll probably have seen most of them from your sketchbook)

Also, I have the feeling that the left leg of the black dude is a bit short.. Could just be me though.

PS: Where's my damn credit?! I brought you to this goddamn site! I want my part of your self-deserved fame! Rant rant asdfasfasfdasfdaf!!

Ah yes! A thousand credits and kisses and awkward physical contacts to my lil' bro Breaktroll, who introduced me to this site and bugged me so long I kind of made a profile to get rid of his nagging.
But I'm thankful!

And the leg of the jumping dude.. Myeah, something's wrong with it. Oh, it's not really his butt showing though, it's meant to be a hipfatty flopping over his pants. But yes, I agree with that.

Um.. When I stop being such a retard and stop waiting for my site to somehow magically improve to the point of perfection before I start posting regularly.. So, go figure.
No, honestly, I'm kind of getting tired of my own indecisiveness, so I think I'm just going to post my comics as I have them, regardless of if I'm completely pleased with the site. I'll let you know when I get to that.

Because she's in an academy of arts (animation) which is located about 60 km away from where I live?
She only comes home in the weekends.

Plus the interwebs is easy.

I'm 70 kilometers away at the moment, untill this weekend. I study in a different city.
I also think this was his very subtle way of telling Newgrounds I'm working on a webcomic.. cough.

Okay, next page. 5.
This one isn't exactly worthy of posting, really, but I promised. It's a very early sketch and I couldn't bring myself to start with the details, because I wanted to make this one really good and visually interesting. I still don't know how.. This drawing has been sitting in this stage in my sketchbook for a good few weeks now, and has somehow reached some kind of 'untouchable' status in my mind and I'm afraid it'll never get finished. Good example of the counter-productive kind of perfectionism..
So, if anyone has any suggestions on what to use to finish this piece, please tell me. Hopefully it'll give me my drive to work on it back.

It is very considerate though slightly belittling to actually link to his wikipedia page. Also, tell that to my brother. I don't think he often realises he has a phone.

Ye dog, dat shit aint crunk no mo. Telepathy is the frizz.

It's just that I don't have anything interesting or informative to say at all, and the interwebs is already packed with useless shit?

Also, I thought that Bell actually stole the phone from some other guy?..

Thanks for all the kind comments!

The next page is something slightly different, some guy asked for a logo for his metalcore/deathcore band. He didn't give any directions apart from 5 other very different logo's, so I kind of had to guess my way through it.
It was a long time ago since I tried to do something typography-like..

This one's on the back of the previous page, and it's the one we eventually (semi)settled for.
But, alas, the guy who needed the logo hasn't replied to my messages in two weeks, and I'm afraid I won't get paid for any of this.
Learn from my mistakes, children.

Again, sketch with potential, but from the moment I saw I was f-cking it up with the arm on the right there, I left it alone.

Yes, a lot of my sketches are done on public transport.
The guy on the right is a sketch from memory though, some poor sob sitting on someone's doorstep with a bouquet of yellow flowers in his hands. It was pretty sad.

Yes, I sometimes tend to make people very ugly when I draw them. 5 years of academical teaching and then two years of "Jesus, just do whatever the fuck you want"-'teaching' can do that to a person. This was actually a pretty girl : /
