Chatterbox: Pudding's Place



(Subject not going through....Third time's the charm...??)

Art stuff thread starting...NOW!  If you draw stuff, you can post it here! I draw in a sort of anime/manga/toon style, but if you don't, don't let that stop you from posting your stuff!  I would love to see other people's art so post away!  They can be OCs, fan art, or just random stuff.  You can use any media, including digital, like I do!  Just to let you chatterboxers know, I started this thread so we can share our tricks of the trade with each other.  Feel free to: ask questions about how to draw certain things, post techniques, share art, and mostly HAVE FUN!  If you draw your OCs, feel free to share information about them such as their names and that sort of thing.  Same goes for fan art since not all of us know where these characters are from.  You don't have to be polished with your art.  I myself am just a beginner at anime/manga/toon.  I'm not good at hands so if any of my hands looks particularly cruddy, you know why.  I also struggle sometimes with feet so same goes for that.  If any of you know how to draw a particularly good hand or foot, feel free to share your trick for it.

Going to post a picture of my OC, Tuxedo, if this post goes through okay.

I love drawing dragons too!! That's literally all I ever draw. I feel like I'm pretty good, but I'm not so sure I want my drawings all over the Chatterbox. I love seeing everyone else's though! Great job, and keep posting!


PS My captcha (i hope i spelled that right), Starfire Scales, says 'nckx'. Necks? Is she a vampire? Or is she insulting my (I'll admit it) overly long neck? 

PPS Starseeker is the name of a black and purple dragon I created. So... dragon insane!!!

PPPS Every space around me is covered in dragons. I may be a little obsessed...

You have skill! I can only draw dragons that look like Toothless. (Watch How To Train Your Dragon to see him.)

Ayles, we can post your original artwork, but not any images copied from another source.

Wait a minute... You seem awfully familiar. As soon as I saw the word "Chalis" in your name, I was all like "That's just GOTTA be her." And I'm almost a billion percent sure that it's you, since I recognize that art!

I can tell your art has improved! Did you use the guidelines for this?

Also, welcome to CB! Here's a free pizza. *hands you a pizza box that smells suspiciously of anchovies* I believe that this one has the wrong topping. *hands you another one* *tosses anchovie pizza box out the window* *an explosion can be heard in the background*

Yes same here for you! Recognized your art and was pretty sure it was you, plus I think you told me your name.

*opens pizza box*

I need feedback on some of my drawings. I never draw manga/toon stuff or paint, I'm just no good at it. Shading is definitely my media, but I occasionally do a colorful abstract picture just for fun. So, here goes:

1. (The portrait) I've recently been into portrait drawing, Yay! But I'm so frustrated, my people never look like the picture I'm drawing off ofYell

2. (The herd of cattle) Kind of random, but it's one of the only other decent drawings I have. (This will be on my next post because I can't upload two images on the same one)

So...I need critique! Thanks!

P.S. Lap- I love your name!

Thanks for posting here, Bluebird! Those pictures are way, way better than my realistic drawings. This isn't my area, but hopefully Micearenice or someone else who's great at realism will have feedback. You are already so good, and that herd of cattle is EPIC! But I do have a suggestion which I got from my drawing class teacher. She said that if you draw off photos, black-and-white is best, you can see the shading and contrast better.

I'm glad you like my name, by the way. I always fudge my profiles partly because it's ridiculously funny to see your age something like "wakkawakka" or "mousepad" and partly for privacy, so I just tried to pick a cool name.

Lap out.

I like it! I would sow me portraits, but they are of really people. One of them is a baby, though, Adkins woulds you let me show it?

Some critique is that you do not neeeeddd specific lines, like you have around the face. See how you traces around it? You don't need this, and it makes it look less real. Instead, just have the color transition naturally. It will create it's own natural line.

Katy out again~
