    So I felt like I should start posting stuff I draw more regularly, instead of letting it rot on my hard drive.

    Pretty much anything I post here is up for honest and constructive critique. I don't always have a lot to say about my images, but feel free to ask any questions, I will answer them the best I can.

    Anyway on to the art stuff, since I'm sure that's what you came to see. On the menu today are a pair of cute succubi, I was a little iffy about posting the first one, but eh, why the fuck not.

    This second image is just my attempt at screen tones. I really like using them, it's sooooo much faster then traditional grey scale methods for me.

    Have you thought about writing a webtoon? Now I don't know about your creative writing talent, but the art seems to be there.

    Id love to learn to animate but i have no time to devote to it. Ive tried writing comics though. I just dont feel they are up to my standard yet. Its tough when you know something isnt quite right but arent sure what it is or exactly how to fix it.

    Im not a terrible writer, but I definitely struggle with aspects of story buildup and resolution. Like I can create characters and worlds but I never know what they should be doing lol

    Well the nice thing is webtoons or the idea behind it I guess, is pretty much manga/comics with color. Characters and a world is a lot in itself. Maybe try creating multiple scenarios and just throwing em out there? Maybe all you need is a little bit of peer review. Not trying to force anything out of you, but it seems like you have a lot of potential and it'd be pretty cool.

    Nice stuff. :p Especially the second one. Not gonna start criticizing anything 'cause I don't have any credentials when it comes to this type of stuff. :D But those are good!

    So i've wanted to post speed paints for a while now. so tonight I went and grabbed a screen recording program. This is just test but it does show the general process I use when drawing my line art.

    Hopefully I have time to devote to doing one start to finish soon =)

    Oh weird. Ill fix that as soon as I get home.

    @Gaff Should be fixed now! I meant for it to be unlisted, not private, so that's odd.

    Jeez there's lots of work involved. Beautiful looking work in the video. Damn, once again I wish I had even little bit of skills in drawing and visual arts. But I suck balls. :rolleyes:

    By the way, how much time you put in that drawing?

    If im doing the math right, (one frame persecond, x60=1m, at 60fps) it was around 2 hours.

    I didn't go into it with any real idea in mind and just started drawing. Usually when I have a goal in mind it takes about an hourish or so to do the line work for a single character like that. You can see plenty of times where I changed my initial ideas on this image and reworked, or scraped them in some way, so all that lost time really adds up.

    Haven't had much time to draw, but I did sit down long enough to do some line work here.

    Pokemon GO is really addictive.

    As a side note, I always try to draw varied body types, i have a hard time with men, but my women are very diverse.

    I haven't put anything up here in a while, so here.
    an attempt at a comic page, obviously missing text but i'll post the finished image here when it's inked and toned.
    I feel like my ability to draw environments and more importantly, people in those environments is improving.

    Have you tried this comic stuff ever before, or is this your first try?

    Ive dicked around with them in the past but never finished a whole page layout up to pencils like this. Its been a long time since i did that though.

    Ive been reading a few tutorials here and there, but im not really "trying" hard core. i consider this particular page practice for setting up a style and workflow. Its entirely experimental.

    So i did that thing everyone is doing with the 2006 vs 2016 thing.

    Unfortunately I couldn't find anything I drew in 06, so 2010 will have to do.

    Obviously the smaller one is from early 2010, the larger image is from today! Talk about improvement.

    Have you ever made stuff that was macabre, or some dark weird shit? I kinda like that sorta stuff so I'm just curious. 'Cause if I had any skills at all, I'm pretty sure macabre stuff would be my main thing I would draw.

    I see. So I guess it's pretty much tied to the artists character. I admit that I'm a little f*cked up, so that's why I like that sorta stuff. :giggle::ROFLMAO: Good example is Zdzislaw Beksisnki's works. I encourage you to check those works, even though you don't like macabre. They're pretty wicked and beautiful.

    Nice. I am a huge fan of the old scary stories to tell in the dark serise entirely because of the illustrations. Really if you havent seen them please look them up.
