Thread: Lyn's Weekly Art Thread

  1. #1

    Default Lyn's Weekly Art Thread

    Hey everyone!

    So this is my new art thread where I'll be posting at least one picture every Thursday in order to be more consistent and to practice more. The pictures could range from simple sketches to complete drawings. Constructive criticism is of course welcome and appreciated!

    I hope you'll all enjoy them as much as I enjoy making them!


    So, here is the first picture! It's one of the main characters from the story I'm writing. His name is Kage. (I know it's not a very original name. I named him when I was a younger teenager haha) He's the gentle but proud prince of the eastern kingdom of Azuran. He looks a little boring when it's just his portrait haha, but that's his style. What do you guys think?

    He looks princely! You nailed that aesthetic! I'm curious to see what his full outfit looks like. For some reason, from what i've seen, I see kinda of military-ish.

    Thanks Freya! I've actually been meaning to draw his full art, so I'll be posting that soon!
    And yes, he is supposed to look like a warrior, so I'm glad I got that down!

    Another picture!

    This one is a sketch of the antagonist's helmet from my story. It's actually fairly old, (so it's not very symmetrical) but I touched it up a bit and added some things. I don't actually have much else of his design besides his helmet. I really need to do his full art soon! What do you guys think of the sketch?

    More drawings on Thursday!

    Great work! That helmet is bad ass!

    Just don't wear it whilst you're eating popcorn or you're likely to lose a finger or two.

    That's terrifying D:

    I'm curious how it'll look colored. Would you go for a darker metal or what?

    It does! I've never played KH, but I just looked it up and I do see some similarities!

    Thanks, Bubba!

    Well, lucky for him, I don't think he even likes popcorn haha.

    I would definitely go for a dark metal. His colors would probably be black and silver, with a pinch of red. I know bad guys always have those colors, but it just looks so cool haha.

    Well yeah, they have those colors for a reason! That reason! It just looks so cool!

    Well, I said I would have a picture out today, but I had to do errands and I wasn't able to finish it. I was tempted to just finish the picture tonight, but it would've looked sloppy. I will have it out tomorrow though!

    Here it is as promised! It's another one of my characters (I promise the next one won't be of my characters haha). Her name is Alexandria, or Alex for short. She's the cheerful and intuitive princess of the western kingdom of Amatea. I'm the most happy with her expression. I used to be horrible at capturing expressions, so I'm glad I'm getting better at it. What do you guys think?

    Oooo I like the wind blown effect. I'm always really bad at that when it comes to hair. Oh you even have the earrings blowing too! See I forget those little details. Constructively I think the one thing off a little is the nose. But other than that I think you captured the expression well!
