Try Gimp?

 

I had a period of time when I used GIMP. It crashed so often. :|

 

Also GIMP's interface.

*shudders*

 

Nice to see you at it again star :D

I save everyone once in a while but not often enough :( And I wanna stick to Photoshop, it's what I'm most familiar with.

 

12/06/2012

 

Seen as though the tablet does not want to enable pressure sensitivity, I dabbled a bit in MS Paint for 5 mins. Made an okay base for a man:

 

UhsNg.png

 

And did the usual Bandos gig:

 

nN9dL.png

 

There was a bit of the lag when using the pen which made it hard to do any smaller bits.

 

Also, I seem to only do RuneScape stuff so tomorrow when Photoshop and the tablet is cooperating with me I shall do something different! (Hopefully).

Waiting for it. And that bandos dude is shaping up nicely, you gotta finish stuff.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

I will revisit these things once I become better at drawing and surely finish them off. However today I managed to finish something :o

 

 

15/06/2012

 

Decided to draw a woman today because everything has been dominated by males so far. I think my inexperience with drawing them shone a little with this piece though it also felt like every little thing that looks wrong just makes them look masculine. Gotta be careful when drawing them.

 

This is the base:

 

smtXW.png

 

More hips and less shoulders is obvious. But I left it as it is because I was adding some shoulder armour things later.

 

Finished (somewhat):

 

y6TbG.png

 

I went with my own interpretation of a skill cape. It's hard to make armour look like armour right of the bat but I reckon as colour comes into play sometime in the future I will be able to solve that one problem. I really wanted to colour this so I could make the cape a bit more obvious but I have no idea how to do that in Photoshop.

 

Tutorials I need to look at:

Hands

Feet

Colouring

 

I would add 'how to make clothing look natural' up there but I think I should practice that by drawing irl.

Face is very masculine - I know I have problems with drawing females as well.

 

Try drawing the feet in 3-d to begin, like little boxes (more like little aquariums :P) and position them where your feet would attach from the calves. (that kind of makes no sense.. I'll post a pic of what I mean later) This helps me to get the perspective on the feet right and has helped a lot.

 

Putting stuff in the hands helps with drawing them because you can easily look at your own hand in that pose (or close to) and draw it from life.

 

edit:

[hide]2ywwqp0.jpg[/hide]

 

That's how I normally start out. Tried to show you how I do hands but it wasn't all that helpful. Hopefully the feet help though.

Ah I get what you mean, thanks. Yeah poses trouble me, I run out of ideas of what position the person should be in but I'll now be conscious of their hands.

 

Appropriate title change. The tablet doesn't want to co-operate so nothing today duckies but here's a blast from the past:

Something I never got around to finishing (too).

Please bear with Gyazo until imgur decides it wants to co-operate.

I found that sketch in a old sketchbook and re-did it on photoshop.

 

I heard duel weilding is coming to RuneScape:

http://gyazo.com/d5b68c0fb36bd9988fb90b30e3b7aa4a

 

Yes, those are badly drawn Saradomin godswords.

 

I actually went with the new Bandos graphical rework. I never noticed it before and it is actually much better to draw than the older Bandos armour. I tried to not make it look so flat and stuck onto the body which failed at some places. A definite improvement I'd say.

Have to use Gyazo to host images again.

 

Decided to stray away from the RuneScape thing today. Taaadaaaa, le mama holding her bébé:

The legs were a [bleep]. But I dealt with it:

And because I had time, used the pen tool in Photoshop to make clearer lineart:

Lol, the knees a bit further down than anticipated now that I've really looked at it.

 

I would rather use Illustrator but unfortunately I haven't got it on this laptop.

 

EDIT:

Just moved the knee up.

Boy do I have an update today.

 

10th July 2012

 

On 16th April I drew this thing which I never finished:

 

w59yP.png

 

Photoshop is a pain in the arse so today I download something called Paint SAI which produces the most fantastic lineart I've seen ever. I opened up the previously drawn image and decided to revamp it.

 

The images are quite large so I'll use a hide tag and minimal narration.

 

[hide]

The base:

The sketch:

5q5Tt.png

 

The lineart:

1QkMy.png

 

The colour:

The shade:

Creating lineart in Paint SAI is epic. I have to show this again:

It's a shame the colouring isn't up to par though! If it wasn't 2:40am I'd look up some tutorial. His facial expression makes him look mad.

I can't draw today for some reason.

 

I came up with this:

Which turned to:

But I couldn't complete the lineart without royally cocking it up so I just moved onto other endeavors. Made a rather cute little Beemo avatar:

And I think I will continue playing with the shading on this program. I haven't quite got it down yet:

Or I'll make more sketches to colour tomorrow :D

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just ended up sketching some more today rather than colouring. Trying to explore angles and perspective because full on frontals are boring and not very production.

 

Quite a couple of pics so hide tags are necessary.

Not great but I'm learning. I don't really remember what the armors from Mass Effect look like but it was something like that. It goes a little iffy when it comes to sketching mainly because I'm thinking 'What the hell should I draw that's not Runescape?!'. I run out of imagination at that stage. Then I think to myself, 'let's draw Runescape stuff that is not Bandos armor' and that's a huge fail because just what is going on with the new armor? But now that I'm writing about it with my tablet packed away, I have tons of ideas hitting me in the face. Why Brain, why??? I guess I'll write down what I'm thinking of now and open up the list tomorrow.

 

Hint: Prepare for the sailing of the moons.

 

No point making a new post if it hasn't got something epic in it.

What is lamus maximus is that I forgot to colour his eyes, colours his eyebrows, do his other arm and his nails. I can't really get my tablet out now so I'll have to finish it off later (famous last words). I'm not really getting the hang of face shading buh-buh-buh-but practice will make perfect. I am sort of getting the hang of it. Hopefully I can draw the sailing of the moons tomorrow but I did just check out a pretty good book from the library.

 

Oh yeah... Circles are really hard to draw!

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Super-duper humongous post! I feel like I'm finally making some progress. I know how to rid of black lines now and let me say, it makes quite a difference.

The shading without lines visible:

Yeah she's supposed to be doing that bow-legged pose all teenage girls do when they cutely pose for a picture. I ended doing the lineart very thick by accident, I was zoomed in and didn't realise how it looked by the time I zoomed back out. That's what prompted me to remove it. It does make a nice difference and I think I'll be doing this in the future, eventhough I took out too much time of my life.

 

If anyone can tell, I've been practicing hands like I said I would. Only I don't have the evidence to back that up...

This... killed my hand. The scale of it got too big and I became too impatient to draw a background or surroundings. I also kept the time because I knew I worked on these for many hours but wasn't sure of the exact amount. This one took considerably longer due to having more than one character in it.

 

The Body

 

XfMA5.png

 

Yep, warrior, mage and ranger. I usually draw the warrior so I decided to branch out a little.

 

 

The Sketch

 

Yhp2R.png

 

I moved the mager a bit to the right. They're all wearing the newer armours (which I'm still not used to!) This, along with the body pre-sketch took a total of 1 hour 30 mins. Blimey!! The mager is wearing ahrims, the ranger is wearing dragonhide and the warrior is wearing bandos.

 

 

The Lineart

 

Iy7pa.png

 

This took... 2 hours and 10 mins. I forgot to take a screenshot pre-colouring of the lines so they aren't black.

 

 

The Colour

 

HR3yY.png

 

I didn't time the colouring and shading individually. I pretty much pulled the colours out of actual RuneScape images. It's best to use the originals. Doing the ranger's dragonhide was a bit tricky because this was my first time ever drawing that. The mage's clothes were just layers of clothes which was easy but a bit hard to represent from that angle.

 

The Shade

 

7zMrE.png

 

...8 hours 50 minutes to colour and shade! And then 1 hour to colour the black lineart. At the end I got sloppy because I wanted it to be over and done with. That's a total of 13 hours 30 minutes. I did not realise this was so time consuming.

 

The scales were rather hard to draw individually so I drew one line and copy-pasted it continuously. It's not perfect:

 

Lw9Pv.png

 

There's a wee bit of touching up to be done which will take another hour or two. If I link to the full sized image, you'd be able to zoom in at the edges where the colouring is not complete.

 

From afar it looks alright:

 

f2Bbm.png

 

But zoomed in:

 

JRJKY.png

 

However that's a task for a rainy day.

 

I'm pleased with the outcome and instead of taking up big projects like this again, I'd much rather focus on improving problem areas. My hands are good now, the feet need a tiny bit of work and faces definitely need a lot of work.

 

Oh, one more thing. I was experimenting with easier ways to shade at some point. At certain sections of the image you can see areas where I've airbrushed instead of colouring, then using the water tool to merge colours. Airbrushing is certainly easier but it gave it the 'embossed' feel (see mager's staff).

 

I can finally take a break now.

Awesome work, especially your most recent piece, I can empathise with you regarding how graphics is so time consuming. As you said, the faces could do with looking more realistic to give it a more 'serious' look.

Eek, I guess I should change the title to once-in-six-months art dump. The program I liked to use ran out of free trial so I've been laying off the tablet. However quite recently I have picked up my sketchbook and pen so I think it'll be nice to start this up again.

 

@Rammernawt: Thank you :)

 

 

6th January

 

There are no progression pictures for this piece seen as though it has been complete for a few days now. I've had a little sketchbook hanging around for a few years now and I've decided to finally use it.

 

I first drew this in pencil then traced over using a 0.1 fine drawing pen:

 

e718k.png

Quite obviously this is meant to depict two different lives. I used reference pictures for the birds I think, I've never draw one before. I didn't know what to fill the white space up with though but I'm sure I will one day revisit this and add more as inspiration comes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

EDIT: For the purpose of not double posting, new update goes here.

 

 

 

 

10th January

 

Another pen drawing in my little book. This quite accurately shows how I feel when drawing sometimes, you have many thoughts in your head and are influenced by many things but you just can't draw it.

 

T4MMk.jpg

 

I would never have gotten those hands right had I not drawn with a pencil first. Looking at this now there are many things I wished to have done differently such as added more things in that thought bubble and fill up the white space more.
