Three pics

So, I decided to add some of my newer pics. These three were finished just recently and I had some free time so I used my laptop’s camera and made photos. After I trimmed the pohotos in PhotoFiltre so that I wasn’t in the picture. Or my fingers for that matter.

This first one is of a sitting girl and was inspired by some more or less random pic on pinterest. I’ve been using pinterest as a source of inspiration. It’s great. Pinterest I mean, the picture, could be better but I’m of the opinion that it’s not too bad. Yeah, the proportions are a bit off, but it’s not like I was going for realism so there. Done in colored pencils with a pencil sketch under. Sketch is a bit older than the colores on top. I just recently got the idea to go back into it with color. But all things considered, it didn’T turn out too awfull.

The second pic was probably even more random. I just sketched and some time after went back into it with color. Though to be honest, I like it somewhat more than the first one. Mainly the shading in the face. I tried to make the sleeve kinda seethrough but I don’T think I did a good job of that, other than that though, I’m happy with how it turned out.

Last pic is me experimenting with darker skin tones. And frankly, it lookes darker on paper. The photo probably skewed the colors a bit. And probably not only on this one. But I’m too lazy to plug in my skener so using camera app on my laptop was the better option for me. Faster.

Now about the third picture. Like I said, I tried to experiment with a darker skin tone and exotic lip color. The ear is a bit weird and the lips should be a bit more to the right (from viewer’s point of view), but other than that, I think it turned out pretty good. Yeah, the lip placement is still bothering me. But nothing to be done about it now, considering that it was sketched with a permanent medium. So short of scrapping it and starting over, nothing to be done about it now. But I really like to sketch with a permanent medium. If I don’T, I redraw and erase too much. And this eliminates it.

WEll, that’s the pics. Hope you like them at least a little bit and when I finish more of them, I’ll post them. Again with a short (or not so short) commentary.

See ya!

A dragon

HI!

I’ve got a picture for you guys! You see, my mother was playing Taptiles on my computer today and while she was doing that, I took a pencil and a sheat of paper. And I started doodling lines and other squigles. Then, I decided to turn it into a real drawing. So, a dragon came alive. I had some problems with the legs, mainly the hind legs, but I managed. And that’s because I had a poster of a dragon behind me. I studied the legs and found out they are more cat-like than the horse like legs I’ve been always drawing. And this improved my dragon-drawing skills.

The front legs are still a bit of a challenge, but that’s probably because I just don’t know what to do with them. This time though, they came out kinda nicely. So that is good. And even the head came out nicely.

Okay, enough talk, here he is!

Artix

Hey, this time, I’ve got Artix. And again, he’s from DragonFable. Only, I modernized his clothes. Originally, he’s wearing armor. Like, plate armor. Heavy. Other than that, I like this picture very much. done in brown colored pencil. On (obviously) yellow paper. However, it is very very old and I think I would have done a better job today. And now, that I’m talking about it, why not. Yes, I’ll redo him. And this time, I might even do the plate armor. Oh and he will be in color. Or in pencil. Not in colored pencil wielded like a pencil. img024So I hope you like it at least a little bit. If you do, coment, will ya? I’d love to read what you think about it. :)

See ya.

Aquella

This picture is of an NPC from DragonFable. Her name is Aquella and if I’m reading it correctly, the picture is about three years old. Done with colored pencils and I have to say, that I’m mostly dissatisfied with it. I don’t know why, but that’s the truth. I like the hair and the corral on the side of her forhead. But that’s about it. Maybe I’ll redo it one day. Or more likely, just draw another one. So, what do you think?img032See ya.

 

Alexander

This is my character from DragonFable. He no longer exists, but it was like… My first cahracter. Like, the very first. I deleted him cause he was a warrior and I mostly play wizards. They are easier to play with. I don’t regret it, even thou he was level fourty something. As for this picture, it’s done on red paper with black colored pencil. I like how it turned out. The game is anime-ish, but I did this picture a bit more realistically. Not the hair, but the nose, for example. Or the mouth. I like it. And you?img025See ya.

Okay, this time, it’s two pictures from Adventure Quest game and DragonFable game. But for my sake, let’s say they are both from DF. The first one is a monster called Mermazon. It is actually a second attempt. The first one was lost in time, but I know, that I did this once before. With slightly different colors. Not much, but yes. I like this version though. It’s better and the lines are cleaner and neater.Obrázek (36)

This second picture is what I like to call a blob. Yes, a weird name, but that’s what it is. In DF, it has many names. Based on it’s elemental properties. Sometimes, it’s lava glob, sometimes it is called necro slime, or something. Like I said, many names. But in general, it’s still a blob. And this onen is blue. And original, because I based the shape on it, but in the end, didn’t use any reference. Only my own memory.

ObrázekOkay, hope you liked it at least a little bit. And if you did, head over to the game and try it. It’s not bad. I admit, I haven’t played it in like a year, or so, but still, a game, that I will eventually go back to. When the rest of the stuff I play, will be boring.

See ya.

 

First and probably last

Hey, I’ve got this comic of mine that I created a few years ago. It is far from perfect, but hey… It’s my first try. And, to be honest, it will probably stay the only try. It’s too much trouble. I’m gonna stick with normal pictures. I just wanted you to see that I suck at this. So, no more comics from me. Like… nver. Still, I hope you like it at least little bit. :)Obrázek (7)See ya.
