This is the first time I have tried to draw in years, so please be delicate with me ;__;

More stuff from today. It obviously needs some work, but i guess it isn't terrible for day 2. Still have a long ways to go :monster:

This first one is my first attempt at drawing one of my story characters, which is the whole reason I'm trying to learn to draw. I tried to incorporate some of the stuff I learned yesterday, so I did this whole thing without the visual guide I used yesterday.

52100

I much prefer the second one. i attempted to do legs crossed underneath the table, but I learned that I am just not ready for that yet xD.

The second one is me attempting to draw my Pokemon X character

52102

Kinda looks like something a 6th grader would draw, but I'm still learning and practicing :P

You're doing pretty good. Usually, when you start drawing for the first time, your stuff will look like its been drawn by a grade schooler. If you keep practicing and draw as much as possible, you will gradually improve. I like how you are keeping it simple. Keep it simple until you feel more confident that you can do more in your drawing.

She's always hard on herself, but the stuff is looking pretty good. If she sticks with it, I can see her really developing a strong talent.

She's trying to talk me into drawing, but it's been toooooo long. :O_O:

Bubba
02-17-2014, 02:20 PM
You definitely have some talent there, shion. Like Sharky says, don't be hard on yourself. They look great!

I have exactly zero artistic talent when it comes to drawing.

Okay so today I attempted beginner Julia and Sara from my story (most of you don't know what that means, but that's okay!). Sara turned out okay for a beginner drawing but Julia did not and I hate it and never want to discuss it again.

But here is Sara

52112

I cut off her feet because I was not at all satisfied.

Thanks for all of the positive feedback guys! It is really nice to hear. I'm kind of insane and get very discouraged if I can't do something perfect from the get-go, but I mean how could I? Some people draw for years before they achieve the level they want to and it's only been a few days. Have to learn not to be so hard on myself :P

Pumpkin
02-19-2014, 04:13 AM
Okay here are today's drawings.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab89/ashton_bourbon/2014-02-18220740_zps32136f2c.jpg

I drew the Pokemon girl again so that maybe repeating the same thing will help me get better. And that inspired me to draw another one of my characters. I also changed the glasses on the hat to a bow!

Man, smurf hands. Am i right?

Who the hell invented those things?

Pumpkin
02-20-2014, 05:02 AM
Yes I draw mitten hands because I dun even want to go there yet.

You know what the worst part is? I should just draw nudes, because the midsection of bodies I am getting very good at, but it's always covered with clothes that I can't draw well. And faces. Who needs a face really

Since this is a Final Fantasy forum of Final Fantasiness, I decided to draw a few characters. Not great, but I think you can at least tell who they all are? I even attempted a ini Angelo :D

Pumpkin

Okay I drew this about a week ago:

52340

It is a Moogle, Rikku as a Songstress, and Yuna as a Gun Mage. Yuna has no hands there because I couldn't draw the gun thingy.

Then today I decided to focus on clothing and hair:
52341

And o it is a bunch of faceless girls. I'm feeling better about my hair drawings, so that's good.

Fynn
03-05-2014, 06:54 AM
My favorite is the faceless girl in the evening dress! You've really improved ;) Have you thought about drawing some faves in close-up? You might want to try doing some guys later on, once you're more comfortable with drawing girls.

Pumpkin
03-05-2014, 04:55 PM
I will try men once I feel more comfortable with girls, like you said. Right now I'm taking part of what I learned online and repeating it while focusing on different areas to help me improve them.

And thank you :D

Yay, thanks for the compliments guys, it means a lot :D

Speaking of which, I was apparently in a drawing mood today:

52354

I drew three of those last night and one today.

I also tried to draw some images from Ranma 1/2.

52355

I'm not too happy with the Ramna (the bottom face image). I realize now the eyes should have been lower but by the time I realized it I was too far gone to start over. So now I know for next time! The other two turned out better than I had expected, though.

Fynn
03-05-2014, 07:16 PM
Wow. Much amaze :D

Pumpkin
03-06-2014, 01:02 AM
I've been feeling pretty creative today! So I did some more Ranma 1/2 pics. One of them turned out great and it's my favorite thing I've drawn to date!


http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab89/ashton_bourbon/WP_20140305_18_34_56_SmartShoot1_zps04ddce19.jpg (http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab89/ashton_bourbon/WP_20140305_18_34_56_SmartShoot1_zps04ddce19.jpg)

Those both turned out okay. The top one was really difficult, but I wanted to try some new poses.

This next one has my favorite one:

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab89/ashton_bourbon/WP_20140305_18_34_10_SmartShoot1_zpsd2029382.jpg

I'm not huge on the top pic, but I actually really love the bottom one :D

Fynn
03-06-2014, 07:09 AM
Good job! :D

Pumpkin
03-07-2014, 06:39 PM
These three drawings, I took more Ranma 1/2 pictures, but then changed them and adjusted them, mostly so I could go through the motions of these poses and learn how to draw them.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab89/ashton_bourbon/WP_20140307_12_12_28_SmartShoot1_zpsdccd3428.jpg

This one I made to look like Alex (as much as I could) from my story:

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab89/ashton_bourbon/WP_20140307_12_11_31_SmartShoot1_zps08fe277c.jpg

And I also drew Sailor Mercury!

03-18-2014, 08:23 AM
More drawings!

First one is some Inuyasha attempted drawings.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab89/ashton_bourbon/963c4d2d-a99a-4d16-953a-8e63b0f19295_zpsc3781705.jpg

Second is just some random stuff I tried.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab89/ashton_bourbon/2a4bc13f-1756-4428-b123-9692f07dc696_zpsb9c09cd9.jpg

And third is Trunks, at Sharky's request. I hadn't tried to draw any males yet, and he is one of my favorite DBZ characters.

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab89/ashton_bourbon/fe7e3e31-1de3-453f-ad8b-658c2f322ad4_zps2408517f.jpg

It made me have to deal with the dreaded hand, the most fear inducing thing for me to draw.

Anyone else think he has an uncomfortable amount of muscle for his age?


If anyone else has any requests, let me know :D. I could use the practice!

Fynn has given me some suggestions for drawings.

Here is Agrias (FFT)

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab89/ashton_bourbon/WP_20140321_0031_zps28f558b0.jpg

Then I drew Basch who is an absolute horror to draw. I already noticed a few things I'm going to change and improve when I go back to it:

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab89/ashton_bourbon/WP_20140321_0041_zps17d4699d.jpg

And then for Fynn, I did a special drawing! I unintentionally drew a girlier, sadder, Minwu! We will call her Femwu:

Here are some drawings that others have requested.

sharky requested MOMO and/or Jr., I am not super happy with either, but I tried!

5251252513

And Fynn has requested my favorite Pokemon Gym Leader, Agnes from Bravely Default, and Lightning. I'll try Lightning tomorrow, my hands are getting tired.

Here is Agnes:

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab89/ashton_bourbon/WP_20140325_0041_zps77355ba9.jpg

I'm going to try a few more of her outfits sometime soon.

And my favorite Pokemon Gym Leader:

http://i852.photobucket.com/albums/ab89/ashton_bourbon/WP_20140325_0021_zps5ac21728.jpg

I'm actually pretty happy with that one :jess:

Some very lovely drawings you have here, shion. :D

Madonna
03-26-2014, 01:54 AM
You should re-draw some of these characters, not because any are bad, but rather because that will up your practice with these particular characters, poses, and outfits. You may find yourself tackling them differently, and perhaps better. I really enjoy your drawings and that you are giving them your all; you seem fired up, shion.

Bubba
03-26-2014, 03:11 PM
You can definitely see the progress, shion. Good work!

Pumpkin
03-30-2014, 08:14 AM
So I drew a few more things.

I drew Lightning so lets get this one out of the way because I hate it.

52598

On a more positive note, I drew some more Agnes. I learned I can't draw in the Bravely Default style at all, so it's actually helping me learn to draw more in my own style and practice that way.

You can definitely see the improvement. Keep up the good work!

Rocket Edge
05-13-2014, 03:09 PM
You definitely have some talent, and I see improvement over the course of your posts. I seem to say this advice a lot but anyway; you should try make it look more fluid looking. There is sort of 'scraggly' lines that you can tell you aren't doing with one motion. For instance, on your last picture, the arms look like they could be done better by giving the outline more definition.

Proportionally though, they look great. Have you ever tried using a white coloured pencil when your shading with colouring pencils? It can really help. The shading itself could be improved to really bring it all to life. You could probably look up some tutorials online. I like the way you are improving and it's very nice work overall. Keep it up. :)

Pumpkin
05-16-2014, 10:50 PM
Thanks for the feedback, Rocket Edge! Right now I'm trying to find a style I'm comfortable with more than I'm trying to make "perfect" drawings, if that makes sense. Once I find what I'm comfortable with, I'll work more on improving that style and trying out different stuff. I'll definitely keep your tips in mind when the time comes!

I drew Tifa today for the 30 day challenge. I've already gone back and changed a few things, but I'm happy with it overall and I really like the face a lot.

Dem ladies.

Hey I have a suggestion: I know you don't have a scanner so you have to take pictures but it's hard for me to see some of the pictures sadly because of this. To get around that, once you draw them can you go back over the lines heavier so maybe it'll show in the pictures more? It might help so I can see the loveliness that is your art.

Pumpkin
06-04-2014, 07:26 AM

Been a while!

I attempted a drawing I saw of WW Link and his family~

62610

I went over it in black marker because I don't have a scanner and apparently my drawings are hard to see sometimes, so some of the smaller details were squashed because the marker was pretty thick. It's not the best but I like it

Ace Protorney
02-13-2015, 08:48 PM
This style is actually pretty interesting, and the shading with the pencil with the marker outline is a very refreshing look as well.
