The Art of KiwiSundae! Dec. 7th, 2012 @ 02:48 PM

Well, hello there! I shalt be showing you what I can do as of right now! This is where I will be posting a good majority of my sketches, while my finished works will go into my actual portal. So, uh, yeah. Gimme feedback, comments, praise, etc, and I will do my best to respond in a positive manner. So, here is my first sketch done in a sort of stylized style. I am actually coloring her in right now, and am making a poster-style background for her.

I was also wondering if we could do collaboration sometime. Perhaps soon? I dunno. Let me know what you guys think!

No need to tell. My ban was lifted. Anyways, I wanted to apologize for the way I had treated you previously, and that I am interested in possibly starting over with you.

Forgiven?

Guys. An admin lifted my ban. Ask Ornery if you don't believe me. Moving on, I was wondering what your opinions are on this color scheme so far. Is it good? Bad? Which colors should I change, etc, etc.

Can you be more specific? Do you not like her blue skin? Does the gradient accenting the future shading bother you?

Well there's alot of blue, and blue is kinda lame, you can definitely benefit by not using blue. Plus why the fuck is she blue?

Okay...What colors do you think I should use? I personally find blue and red, a classic color clash to be more suitable, but I will take suggestions.

How about pale white skin, red hair, black skirt and tanktop, with a fucking cannon...Bitches love cannons

Also give her real tatoo, not this tribal crap. Everyone knows tribal bands/marks make you look like a douche bag.

I dunno...I'll think about it, but if it doesn't happen, then oh well...I really do like the blue skin though. I think it makes her look sci-fi-ish. As for the hair, I'll consider it, and as for the dress, I will consider that as well, however, changes won't be made until I figure out what changes out of those suggested I should make. As for the tribal tattoos thing? Eh...I dunno...

That actually sound cool. I'll put Clarice in a cave and she'll have to fight a bunch of skeletons that have glowing red eyes. I actually like that idea. Besides, it'll give me a chance to practice drawing Clarice from the back view, give me some perspective practice, texture and environmental painting practice, and a whole bunch of other stuff.

I get the blue skin and the sci-fi look you're going for, and I think it's fine. What's odd though is what she's wearing. It's too normal compared to what she is. If you're going for sci-fi, do some research and find something that's more fitting for a spacey blue chick rather than just regular bad-girl-with-a-gun clothes.

Look, I'll... make it really brief, and hopefully it gets through.

Again, your anatomy is wrong. Her legs are weird, her waist is riding up way too high, the color scheme between her hair and skin is confusing...
But overall. It's the anatomy. You're sick of hearing it, yes, but did it ever occur to you that you hear it so much because it's what you need to master before you move on?
It's like you're asking how to beat the elite four before you've even beaten Misty yet. We could tell, but it's pointless because you haven't reached that point yet.
Yes, anatomy is boring, but it needs to be done, just like level-grinding your pokemon needs to be done if you want to beat gym leaders.

So, chances are, you won't get much criticism from anyone who knows their shit here until you show the will to work on that aspect. Because it's your glaring weakness right now, and you're chosing to ignore it because you seem to have convinced yourself that people are saying so just to piss you off.

If you want to draw characters, knowing how the human body works is essential. There's no two ways around it.

Dear Gouki/Dragonpunch/KiwiSundae (or whatever the fuck you want to be called), I can see you're not throwing any kind of critique away, and that's good. But I suggest that you shouldn't exaggerate on this, because everyone is going to think you're hypocritical. GET IT SWEETIE
Moving on to the piece you posted early, I can tell you that it looks too much like your previous work. The pose is repetitive, I've seen it a billion of times in your art threads. The best way you can get around in drawing poses from your mind is by skeletoning. You don't have to draw fucking precised bone-to-bone skeletons, just draw stickmen. I'm not joking. Once you've drawn a stickman, go ahead and draw the limbs, the head, and the details later. And for God's sake don't implement minor details on any poses. Everyone in my art class is doing this, and why? They tell me: "but I just draw what I see", and they're right, but if you're gonna make the pose look good, ignore the little details. It's going to make the rest of the body look irrelevant.
And why only women? You've been drawing women non-stop for about five months or so. I asked myself why, and then I got the answer. You are a dude who prefers lesbian porn. And drawing the same gender over and over again in a cheap manga style is just plan pathetic. Draw men, children, cars, weapons, animals, whatever! Just not the same repetitive pose in the same repetitive gender. Or don't. Whatever.

Okay, that makes sense. I can definitely add some sci-fi details like patterns on her clothes, if that will help.

This, no need to draw faces, just the body and poses.

Well, I can always do that since I have stock photos and all. I'll definitely practice some more after my next piece is done.

I get where you're coming from, and I can do that. However, I the pose I am working on right now is more or less a concept of a character. Also, as for men, animals and the like, I can certainly do that. Maybe I could combine subjects. I mean, I DID draw "sort of" animals, and I did draw a bunch of trees, grass and what not, so it's not like I can't do it.

Again, back to my previous idea, how does her fighting a bunch of skeletons sound?

You should fix the waist before you add color effects.

Also the one glowing eye is kinda lame.

Too late...Though, I did the measurements for the waist, and given that she is leaning, I found nothing wrong. So, on that front, I would have to respectfully disagree.

Alsom Western-Style poster! In this one, I actually made a poster-style background for her.
