Hey everyone!

I would like to share with you all some of the Final Fantasy related drawings I've done. So, here is the first one! It's of Kain Highwind from IV and it's done with colored pencils and graphite pencils. I copied it from his menu portrait while adding a few touches of my own. Enjoy!

I like your colouring technique! I also thought the hair was done well. Well done! :jess:

Great style, excellent colors, and excellent shading/highlights. Color pencils are my medium of choice, but I can't wield them as adeptly as you can.

Thank you all for your kind words! :) I really appreciate it.


So, here's another one! It's of Vincent from VII. This one is also a menu portrait, and it's also done with colored and graphite pencils. It's one of my favorites that I've done so far, and I hope you guys like it too!

I love the deep shade of red you used! The use of shading with the hair was especially good; the hair is the best thing about this.

Man, Vincent is so smurfing cool.

Really nice style. Your colouring is top drawer too.

Again, thank you all for your feedback!

So here is a picture that is not FF related. It's of Lyndis from the Fire Emblem series. I copied it from her official art, and it's done the same as the other two.

That is beautiful. I love the use of green in the hair and eyes and she's very attractive. Could almost pass off for a boy if she wanted to. I love the (ribbon?) that ties up her hair and the outfit looks great.

Lady Lyndis is my favorite character in gaming. Her story, her personality, her combat style, even her color scheme. It all works so well together, and she's just such a great character. And that's a fantastic job with her art.

It's been a little while, but here's another one! This is the party that I beat VII with drawn in my own style. It's done with graphite pencil like the others. The scan quality of the picture isn't great because the scanner was being horrid, but I did what I could so enjoy! :)

Constructive criticism is always appreciated!

I decided to do a picture of my favorite Pokemon, Hitmonchan. He's been one of my favorites since I started following Pokemon, so I though it was about time I did a picture of him. I copied it from a screenshot from the anime, and I used colored and graphite pencils. 68844

It's been awhile since I've posted a picture because my computer crashed and it took awhile to get the scanner up and running again.

Anyway, I decided to go a bit retro and draw my favorite Robot Master from the Mega Man series: Quick Man It's just a quick little drawing, but I hope you all enjoy! :)

Hey Everyone! I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything, but I would like to say hello again with a drawing to show you all! :)

This one is of Shulk from Xenoblade Chronicles. I just recently finished that game, and it's definitely one of the best games I ever played. Like the others, this one is done with colored and graphite pencils, but I also inked this one. I have to say though, his hair was a total nightmare to draw, but I'm very proud of it. :)

Thanks so much guys! I really appreciate it. It took me hours to draw (especially the hair), so I'm glad it turned out so well. :)

Hey again! I've been feeling really inspired lately, so I've been drawing a ton. This drawing is of Hector from the Fire Emblem series. He's one of my favorite characters in the whole series, so I thought it was about time I did a portrait of him. :)

So here's a picture of my favorite FF character, Kain Highwind. I haven't been this happy with a picture in a long time. I'm so happy with it that I wanted to share it with you all! :)

That's such a striking design! The shading is very on point as well. The detailing on the armour is super-fine. You're so talented!

Any idea what you'll draw next? When you set out to draw with something firmly in mind, or just whatever comes up?

I was thinking of doing Cloud's art from Advent Children. I did that one a few years back and I want to see how I've improved.
I always have something in mind when I sit down to draw. If I don't, I just sit there, staring at the paper with nothing to draw haha.

Hey everyone!

So in order to be more consistent and to get myself to practice my drawing more, I had the idea of posting at least one picture a week. It could range from just a sketch, art of the characters from my story, or video game fan art like the ones I have been posting. Say every Thursday or so I upload at least one picture.

What do you guys think?

Bubba
02-13-2017, 09:21 AM
That sounds like a great idea :D

You could even start a new thread if you didn't want to do it in here. I love looking at everyone's art on here and wishing I had some talent in that regard. My greatest drawing on here was the hula-hooping girl for Night Fury's fitness thread. She can confirm that my skills are erm... limited.

Fynn

Definitely do it

My drawing comes in bursts, but I can definitely see the merits of trying to be consistent to work on your technique. Like Bubba said, feel free to do it either here or create a new thread specifically for that! :)

Thanks for the support guys! :)

So it looks like I'll be starting a new thread and posting my art there, so watch out for it! :)
