Oh look, it's my art (LOL) thread.
Made some doodles tonight in Stats that are stimulating my creative processes. Then I came online, only to be doubly inspired by a certain amazing artist. (You know who you are~!) My juices got pumping, so I figured I'd take up the pencil again.
I'll start with the original doodles, which are characters in a project I hope to get started on in the future:
Don't laugh, they are pretty terrible, and my webcam is equally so.
I guess I should explain some things. The only one I really spent considerable time on is the fox guy (he's not a cat, trapped! It was an anatomy fail on my part) in the center. The fox girl on the left was drawn half-heartedly. I only put her in to contrast the differences between the two different branches of the race. (Something I'll go into as my art gets better and the ideas come together.) The mouse guy was also last minute, as these are the only two races I've got a full set idea on, which again, I will go into later.
And yes, they are indeed what you think they are, technically. They are characters of different races, yes, but at their heart, they are indeed those. And for the most part, at least in these early stages, those are going to be a large chunk of what I draw. So, uh, fair warning.
Clearing that up, now to get to serious business. It's time to ramp up my art! So I'm gonna basically draw something every day, give or take, as I go from art disaster to… well, not awful. I'm open to all advice and criticisms so hit me with your best shot! Anything to help me improve will be absolutely welcome.
Day 1: Put Your Hands Where I Can See Them!
If I have to pick one thing I am awful at drawing, it's hands.
So that's where I'll start. I don't seem to have issue with structuring them however… It's just... making them not look awful is the problem.
I swear I have horrid lighting in my house and this webcam is awful. First order of business is buying a friggin' tablet.
