So I drew this concept enemy design for an indie game. It's a tactical strategy rpg. What do you guys think? It's supposed to be a ranged mage enemy. It uses the bulb looking thing in the front to cast spells.

What type of game is it?
User avatar #63770 to #63768 - ScottP (11/09/2014) [-]
A tactical strategy rpg. It's grid-based system. We're still in the initial design stages for the game though.
User avatar #63771 to #63770 - pixmantle (11/09/2014) [-]
Are all the enemies fish? Is this a floating fish? What's the story?
User avatar #63772 to #63771 - ScottP (11/09/2014) [-]
They're supposed to be demons from hell, but the enemies are all based off of animals. So we've got different themes for each area, and different demon animals for each one.

Also this is a fish that moves as if it's swimming, but it's just floating through the air

Addressing your concept: What I think would look neat was if he was wearing a robe, and looked more hunchbacked with eyes that popped out a bit, would look neat and allow for colour change for different types, as well as staffs and what-have-you

Is this demon supposed to be intelligent, or feral?
User avatar #63778 to #63774 - ScottP (11/09/2014) [-]
It's supposed to be feral. Its spells come mostly from raw unfocused dark energy, so it won't be using tomes or spellbooks or things like that. That was why initially I tried to veer from the generic wizard robes and staff.

User avatar #63779 to #63778 - pixmantle (11/09/2014) [-]
I think robes would look cool hanging off the body, especially if you threw the hood over the bulb, that would look unique. I think a floating hunchback is a veritable canvas of cool things that could hang off of it. If you're making it feral-naked, then it's really just an angler fish with arms. You COULD make it feral and put restraints hanging off of it, like chains, or a collar, or something.

I want to know more about this game so I can give better opinions, e.i: ones that don't clash with what you want/need for it.
User avatar #63780 to #63779 - ScottP (11/09/2014) [-]
I like the chains and tatters idea. Gives it a more savage feel. I'm going to draw an alternate version of this and post it in a few days. The team is having another meeting on Tuesday so I can gauge their thoughts on the robes and stuff.

There is also another variant of this enemy (based off of a piranha) which is meant to be melee. I have yet to draw a rough draft of that.
User avatar #63781 to #63780 - pixmantle (11/09/2014) [-]
These are beginning enemies?
User avatar #63782 to #63781 - ScottP (11/09/2014) [-]
Yep. They're more or less common enemies.
User avatar #63783 to #63782 - pixmantle (11/09/2014) [-]
I better idea than feral, but close to it, would be tribal. Primitive weapons, tatters, crude weapons, and body paint make for good decoration.
User avatar #63785 to #63783 - ScottP (11/09/2014) [-]
That could be interesting. Shamanistic designs for the range mage
User avatar #63786 to #63785 - pixmantle (11/09/2014) [-]
I want to know more about this game, I want to contribute more, MOOOOOORE.

I'll let you know as I create more concept designs.

I think you can be more creative.

I sure can't.
User avatar #63767 to #63766 - ScottP (11/09/2014) [-]
True...it does seem a little too generic of a monster..
User avatar #63756 - bluzzerstream (11/09/2014) [-]
How the fuck do you guys handle drawing digitaly?
Everything I do looks shit and I can't even draw a straight line......
It's frustrating as shit and everything I do feels like a massive downstep in skill.
To that it's unpractical as shit, I still need to use keyboard, mouse and the tablet doing all on the computer and the programmable buttons are just annoying in every way they could be
User avatar #63802 to #63756 - gameshredder (11/10/2014) [-]
>Can't even draw a straight line

Did you know most drawing programs have a tool that draws straight lines?
User avatar #63760 to #63756 - pickaxe ONLINE (11/09/2014) [-]
By now,I'm so used to digital that I see traditional media as kind of a hassle.
I guess it's an experience related problem you're having,or your tablet and screen have a different ratio.
Anyways,really smooth stuff is where vector programs like inkscape or illustrator come in,though solely relying on those isn't the best option for someone already used to penstuff.....

well,as adun said,what exactly is your problem?Maybe we've got some tips on small stuff
User avatar #63776 to #63760 - bluzzerstream (11/09/2014) [-]
Well, tips, how do you start off?
I've used the tablet a lot for coloring and fixing errors on scanned thigns.

Then I want to paint but it's always a project setting up a canvas, colros, brushes and so on so I always tell myself to actually get used to the tablet but I just can't. It won't happen.

Coloring is a mess cause the colors I pick are not at all related as if you would be mixing traditionally and using a seperate layer palette is a real struggle since I'm (once again) not used to switching layers back and forth.

Then choosing brushes is the worst since having two numbers (opacity/flow) decide your outcome is really fucking abstract.

Most of my time is spent trying to get the right tools to paint one line and then after several tries of painting one part I have to do the same thign again. It's so much to do for such a little outcome yet I can without trouble see it as reflexes yet I can't adapt them....

What exactly is the problem you're having?
I draw digitally and the only problem I have is lack of skill.
User avatar #63758 to #63757 - bluzzerstream (11/09/2014) [-]
Well... That!

The rpoblem is I can't move forward cause I get too frustrated to even get used to it.
Like, how am I supposed to draw if it takes me half a minute to do a relatively round shape?

At the same time it's a lot less messier than real colors and of course Ctrl-Z
User avatar #63927 to #63758 - Nahyon (11/11/2014) [-]
If it takes half a minute it takes half a minute, look forwards, not back.
#63759 to #63758 - adunsaveme (11/09/2014) [-]
Use something like Illustrator
It smooths out lines you draw, which is super fuckin useful, and has an actual smooth tool
Means you can focus on actually making art instead of constantly striving for neat lines

Even when you scribble it like I did, it's smooth
User avatar #63773 to #63759 - bluzzerstream (11/09/2014) [-]
I do have Illustrator but should that really be necessary?
User avatar #63775 to #63773 - adunsaveme (11/09/2014) [-]
If you're using a mouse, it's perfect, especially for linework. You can colour in something else.
If you use a tablet, Sai also has a stabilizer that doesn't work with a mouse, but I'm not sure how well.
User avatar #63777 to #63775 - bluzzerstream (11/09/2014) [-]
Nah, I use a wacom thing.

I'll still try Illustrator, jsut playing around, maybe it'll get me more used to it.

#63753 - stetsonthehat (11/09/2014) [-]
ever get that feeling that something doesn't seem right?
User avatar #63807 to #63753 - aldkai (11/10/2014) [-]
The shadows make it look weird,especially on the neck.

There are more than one light zone on a subject which is not what we see here.
#63820 to #63807 - stetsonthehat (11/10/2014) [-]
i gotcha. it was a little weird drawing it based on the picture i was using. here's a link imgur.com/gallery/SpD5n

Just got my hands on some copics. It was a good decision, what do you think?
User avatar #63751 to #63748 - adunsaveme (11/09/2014) [-]
no idea what copics are, but thems be some nice eyes

eyes are fun
User avatar #63754 to #63751 - pickaxe ONLINE (11/09/2014) [-]
copics are terrifyingly expensive Markers that are really great for colouring/shading traditionally
User avatar #63752 to #63751 - mourningspawn (11/09/2014) [-]
Copics are really awesome markers

and thank you

I'm stumped. I am new to drawing people and I have no idea how to draw pants. Any tips, guys?
User avatar #63763 to #63741 - ScottP (11/09/2014) [-]
Pants fold a lot around the areas where there are bending. Also...pants don't have an empty area to show off the crotch
User avatar #63744 to #63741 - trisketthebiskit ONLINE (11/09/2014) [-]
be sure to show many folds around the knee as jeans will naturally do and show details just as belt loops and buttons make them just slightly ticker than the legs are. i usually make the bottoms of the pant leg spread out a bit like they are draped over the top of the foot.
User avatar #63740 - stoicnick (11/08/2014) [-]
i was wondering if someone could make a somewhat decorative background for a comp i'm making, preferably black and cyan as the color scheme but a bit darkened so it doesn't pop out
#63742 to #63740 - gameshredder (11/08/2014) [-]
That'll be $26

I got stuff to do today XD I'll draw in my sketchbook and maybe post it

Not much you can do about it. When you enlarge something with any software, it has to create and approximate new pixels meaning that accuracy is lost.

Fortunately in this case you could just take a screenshot of the picture on the right.
User avatar #63728 to #63725 - alleksi (11/08/2014) [-]
on the left, of course.

So I think I asked this a while ago but I forgot
Anyway I want a decent tablet I can draw with, any ideas?
-preferably around 100 bucks
-nothing with too many buttons
-decent size
-a pen that doesn't disintegrate, if possible
-one that isn't flimsy or easily broken
I don't expect to throw it down some stairs but it's nice to have peace of mind

Pressure levels don't matter to me TOO much

I dunno gibe recommendations pls cos it's rubbish sifting through hundreds of models and sites
User avatar #63733 to #63723 - Streamline (11/08/2014) [-]
www.amazon.com/Monoprice-10X6-25-Graphic-Drawing-P this one is pretty good, a couple of my friends have one and I was able to try it out for a while.
If that one doesn't seem like what you want, then Intuos tablets are good, but a lot more expensive.
User avatar #63738 to #63733 - adunsaveme (11/08/2014) [-]
the buttons tho
