awsome work! i have a question, how did you get all of the photo's detail in the right place? stuff like the nose in relation to the eye and the eye in relation to the ear and stuff like that.
i have to work on a photo for a friend and i have never done portraits before .

tribal might be a good word, but tribal-style drawings tend to be more blocky.

I don't know if you're actually looking for something serious.

User avatar #67059 to #67054 - instalation (01/15/2015) [-]
It's nice! but not exactly what I'm looking for. I am looking for someone who'd be willing to draw a female character. I'm not sure what style I want but I'd like to know a wider variety so I can make my choice.

An NSFW artist would be pretty great, actually. I don't want an NSFW picture, I want a SFW one, but nsfw artists might know how to make what I like.

But your picture does have a certain charm to it.
User avatar #67134 to #67059 - tepidteal ONLINE (01/16/2015) [-]
I want to try to give it a go. PM me a picture and maybe I'll have something done within a week.

I'll draw it on my iPad, since I don't practice drawing on my computer.

Makes sense, mine wasn't a serious reply anyway.
If you find someone later I might draw your thing anyway because muh block.
Not likely though, I started drawing 1.5 years ago and have drawn about 4 things total.

start my first art class for college today. hoping this will be my first step at getting better at sketching/ drawing.
User avatar #67001 to #66999 - legendaryhero (01/14/2015) [-]
Do you really need that class
User avatar #67049 to #67001 - fisheh (01/15/2015) [-]
i mean i need an elective course and i know i would really like to improve in drawing and sketching so i figure why not kill two birds with one stone. i understand where you are coming from where i could just improve with self study but i think this method is one that will work best for me while getting a requirement out of the way. as i progress i will try to post work on here and have you all give me advice if you would kindly do so but i don't have a scanner so it probably wont turn out the way it actually looks.
User avatar #67062 to #67049 - defectivedetective (01/15/2015) [-]
Just make sure you draw outside of class or you'll be making shit progress. Art is mostly practice to begin with.
User avatar #67180 to #67062 - fisheh (01/16/2015) [-]
actually doing that now, i am kind of stuck right now though. is it ever a bad idea to toss something away midway? or should i just grind it out?
User avatar #67236 to #67180 - defectivedetective (01/17/2015) [-]
I honestly can't answer that since I don't know much myself but sometimes I think it helps to play around with it a bit and if you finish it and it still looks like shit, then you can throw it out. A lot of drawings will look like garbage during the first few minutes of it
#67012 to #67001 - anon (01/14/2015) [-]

Hey guys, I'm trying to get better at drawing from life,
and I would like to know how to draw a tree.
I'm not asking for like step by step instructions, but when I look at a tree it's hard to overcome all of its details.
I know the basic rule: break it up into simple shapes,
but how do you apply this to something like a tree?
#67014 to #66996 - anon (01/14/2015) [-]
I think it's just a matter of getting the general shape of something like the trunk before you start filling in details, like twists and knots
Then you can refine it and refine it some more
Leaves can be done as anything from loads of small strokes of varying shades or big clumps with some texture

Probably not very helpful, I know, but it's kinda just a thing you get the feel for over time
#67037 to #67014 - anon (01/14/2015) [-]

Hello Drawing & Art.

I just noticed you can customize your profile and I got this idea.

<-- I want this guy to stand to the right on my profile frame with the same color as funnyjunk. and left of him it says "babylien".

The problem is I can't really make it good with paint, and I have no knowledge with photoshop.

So heres the question. Can any of you help me with it? I'd be really greatful.
User avatar #66992 to #66991 - Umad (01/14/2015) [-]
So lets see here
For your header, you want the guy on the far right, your name in the middle, and the background to be blank (The FJ grey background color)

What color and font do you want your name?
#66993 to #66992 - babylien (01/14/2015) [-]
Yes. Thats right    
&lt;- I really want that kind of red, if thats possible.

I did it by hand, it was my first attempt at anything like this so I wasnt (still aren't) really well-versed in all the tools at my disposal. I agree it was a bit rough, but I have been practicing and trying to learn more about what all I can do

How do I fur without making it too complex?
I kinda just stuck to a bit of dark & light streaks on the tail and neck fluff but it looks a bit odd with the simple fur everywhere else

I tried a few more detailed brushes n shit but it just looked kinda wrong

How does saying "ditch that and draw from real life" help me make fur look like fur?
User avatar #67007 to #67006 - legendaryhero (01/14/2015) [-]
Because you see and practice real fur instead of taking the advice from this board saying "brushstrokes".

User avatar #67102 to #67100 - legendaryhero (01/15/2015) [-]
I never draw anymore. I don't have time for it because of my shitty school.
I put so much time in school but I still fail. They litterally fuck me over and it's were i get my aggression from. I take it out on people online. GG me.
My own pc has hardwarefailure. I am trying to save money but with no income that's impossible. I can't work because I don't have the time for it.
The reason i can get on fj now is because I have some kind of test week.
We go to school, make a test, and go home. Tomorrow we got a test which we can't study for.. so now I got time. But im tired and stressed and I won't make it this year.
I'm wasting time on school while I could've gone to a school which required less time but is shit education but it atleast wouldve gotten me time to study art.
I am fucking myself and my family over.
I dont know why i am telling you this. I am a disgrace anyway.
User avatar #67105 to #67102 - thegrohltroll (01/15/2015) [-]

User avatar #67110 to #67108 - thegrohltroll (01/15/2015) [-]
Of course. But sometimes people can't rely solely on that, they need someone to clarify and simplify things for them, especially when it comes to painting
#67111 to #67110 - legendaryhero (01/15/2015) [-]
Remember when I drew mlp ponies?
I was first doing it like that guy above did, but when I started looking at actual references. I understood it much clearer, copied the way it looked and after doing it multiple times I was able to do it on my own. with the colors looking good. Looking up things for fur and shit.
What always held me back was what he did too. I fell in love with the lines I made before / the stylization/ and refused to look further.
Once I understood it was all much easier.
Just throw what you know away and start anew.
Ohwell. if this is what he wants to do..

I just dont want him to end up like pic related.
User avatar #67113 to #67111 - thegrohltroll (01/15/2015) [-]
You're right, but there'snothing wrong with asking for tips. It can save a lot of time
User avatar #67008 to #67007 - adunsaveme (01/14/2015) [-]
Seeing real fur doesn't mean doing real fur
I can stare at my cat all I want but that won't bring me any closer to digitally replicating fur on a computer using a specific set of tools

Well in the video you see a way to tackle fur
the drawings are probably done with reference. but most likely from the mind while knowing how to go around colors. which is also very important.
his way might seem very simplied to you but obiviously it works really well and doesn't make us doubt that it is fur.
User avatar #67032 to #67031 - adunsaveme (01/14/2015) [-]
It's a completely different deal to anything I have even the slightest bi of experience with so I might try it

#66976 to #66972 - anon (01/14/2015) [-]
If you want it to look simple, then it's probably best to go with cel-shading. If you want a more painterly approach, just using a large brush could work too.

Also, give a shot at painting over your lines. They can be fairly restricting when painting hair/fur.
User avatar #66983 to #66976 - adunsaveme (01/14/2015) [-]
cel shading is nice, and I usually do it, but it just looks flat to me

Oh yeeeaaaah I remember that
But I think that's a little different to making something look like fur, y'know?
You don't do each strand or anything like that but I usually see artists use a mix of light and dark streaks, I just can't do it very well

I'm not sure about sai, but in manga studio I use a brush that has the texture that you see in the photo and with proper colour using you get a pretty good result.
I took a shot at his right ear to show you what i mean, . So yeah, try and find a brush like taht

was that easy to do or whut?
Like is it a single stroke brush or the multi line one, whatever it's called?

no it's multiple strokes, and you change the size depending on what you're doing
Hightlights normally use smaller sizes.

I think it's a matter of alternating shades
Should be fun to figure out
