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 like it! The bow and arrow being shot by the feet is a pretty neat concept. Lap out. :)

Just because you draw one style doesn't mean you can't do another! I draw manga, but O can do other things, too!

This style isn't my area, but I like the expression in the eyes. Maybe you could post your progress later when you're done. That would be cool beans. :) Lap out.

Oh I like it! I'm not that great either but here's what I think: 

you should add some color to make it pop more. Also outline in pen so the erase lines are less obvious.

I like the hair it looks really realistic. I have hair sorta like it and I like how you made it so tangled like rat nest ( I know what that looks like from experience )

I also like the thoughtful expression like there really thinking. 

Good job! With more practice you could make a really great realistic drawing!
