    FFXIV Character

    A'nutoh Tia (Sargatanas)

    Default Fynn's doodles

    Alright, what the hell. Might as well go public with these.

    I like to draw, though I'm pretty aware I'm not really good at it. I mean, I think I draw faces fairly well and have a pretty consistent style, but anything else turns out pretty bleh But that's fine as I mainly just draw characters from my stories and I just need this to visualize them better. Also, most of the time I draw during class, so it's mostly in pen and not on blank paper, because I'm sloppy like that

    Hopefully you can give me some nice feedback. Basically, I would like to know how I can pose characters, because I'm really dreadful at that, despite having that poseable wooden man on my shelf, and maybe this will make you guys want to read my stuff! (shameless Fynn is shameless, I know)

    Alright, so first up, here's Griff, one of the main characters from the novel I'm working on (you can read the first draft of the first two chapters of it here )









    And here are some characters from a story I posted once in the writing prompts thread, then later on my blog after some editing.













    And lastly, here's Evie from a story that hasn't made it to the blog yet.





    So let me know what you think. I know there's always room for improvement and even though I don't want to do anything serious with this, I still want to get better.

    Oh, and I will probably be posting more of these, as I basically always doodle in class

    Just dug up some old stuff!

    Here's more Griff (I really like to draw him, as you can see ).







    Just experimenting with some facial expressions here. Here's a drowsy Griff:



    And here is his monster-fighting partner/best buddy - Daniel!



    (I apologize for the bluriness of some of these, I still don't know how to effectively take photos with my phone)





    And here's a chibi version of the main protagonist - Hippolyte!



    Alright, here's some more Evie.



    And this is her beau, Chuck.



    Chuck likes to grow his facial hair out a bit.



    Evie prefers him clean-shaven, though.



    Much to his dismay...

    Finally, here's a character I prepared as part of a D&D campaign that will probably never take place. I've actually prepared a lot of these characters, where they would help move the plot forward, but depending on how involved with them the party decides to be. Heck, they were even meant to be romanceable So here's a pretty important character. A young wizard, blessed by Mystra, a heavy burden on his shoulders. Oh, and it's a guy He's 18 and has been locked up in a tower for his whole life.

    Alright, now for something different. As you'll notice, these are not school doodles. It's something I did today, I call them "promo shots" for my book Basically some characters from my book stuck at different poses with cliche taglines added for drama. I really stepped out of my comfort zone for this one. Hope it paid off, though I'm pretty sure they still need lots of work.

    Oh, and you'll also notice they're scanned. No more bluriness!

    You have some really good stuff here, Fynn. The character designs are quite solid, where each character can be easily recognized. I don't really have much advice to give, though I think that the tilt of the umbrella bothers me a little bit, I think it might be that it's not wide enough.

    I am just... that ace!

    Griff and Evie continue to be my favorites. I noticed some of these images are kind of on the blurry side which makes it hard to make out some of the drawings. Any idea what's causing that?

    You draw in margins a lot; it would be nice to see what you can do with fuller sheets of paper. Your last post shows a little of that, but those are still barebones. While you have character designs down, maybe some work on background art would help fill out your drawings. I definitely dig your characters' expressions. Keep it up.

    These are pretty solid fynny You should do some finishing touches on those last couple drawings Also, hand proportions need work. But hands are hard for just about everyone, including myself!

    Wow your style is so cute! It's kinda cartoony kinda not? I really like the style. I can see it in animation.

    It reminds me of a deviant artist I follow actually!

    Looks like you got faces down really well. Bodies, a little less so but the more you draw the better you get and you're already doing amazingly. I can't wait to see more of your work!

    Thank you for all the hard work and advice! I'll try to work on backgrounds more, but those always kinda sucked for me. Still, practice makes perfect, right? I'll also try to sit down and draw someone with a proportionate body, we'll see how it goes. I have some old full-body sketches lying in my file, but I'm still kinda weary about those. Next time I might even sit down and ink something.

    Any tips or tutorials on coloring, by the way? I wanted to get there someday, but the magazine that I used to learn to draw went out of print before they got to colors. It would be cool if I could do it digitally, but I have no idea where to start, what software to use, plus, I don't even have a tablet PC.

    Anyway, here are some characters shion prompted me to draw. They're all from FF, so they should be recognizable. Then again, two of them are furries, which I'd never drawn before that :/

    I did not intend to draw Fran today. But I did. It was sorta meant to be based on this piece of artwork, but I drew here from memory, so a lot of details are off.

    Today, I drew Griff with his younger sister Ofelia during class.





    Anyway, got some suggestions on who to draw from shion, so that's who I'll be working on next If any of you have any ideas for me, let me know!
