The place i dump my art!
« on: June 18, 2015, 01:53:55 pm »
Hey everyone. Before i start dumping my art here, let me tell you how i got into it in the first place!
So, before about a week ago from the time i'm writing this, i had never really gotten into drawing, and whenever i tried (or had to try), i failed miserably. But about a week ago, that changed. While waiting between 2 classes, I got to the point of boredom where i for some reason started sketching some random stuff. An arts teacher happened to notice me and came to have a look what i was doing. She asked me if i do a lot of drawing, and i told her i didn't. She then recommended me to give drawing a serious try, so i did. I had no clue what to actually draw, until i thought of furry. So i found some tutorials and started sketching. The first sketches came out pretty nicely for a first try IMHO. So i decided to scan them and ink and color them digitallly. For doing this i had the luck to already own a cheap wacom bamboo pen tablet. I bought that ages ago because i had just suffered from an RSI and decide i should try to do things more ergonomically (i didn't keep it up for long) and i really didn't ever use the tablet since. At the moment of writing this i have been drawing for about a week, and have started to really like it.


I will post sketches, completed stuff (of course), and sometimes status updates. I am open to both critique and suggestions and would like to get them so i can improve my skills. I hope you guys (will) enjoy my art! If there's something you'd like to see me draw, feel free to post it. I won't promise anything, but ill keep it in mind whenever i dont know what to draw.


The Stuff I Use!
Software: Krita (https://krita.org/)
Graphics Tablet: Wacom Bamboo Pen


Let's get on with it, shall we?


^ One of my first sketches


^ The digital lineart of the previous image


^ A sketch where i tried 3d, i didnt really like this one and didnt work it out


^ More sketches, but forward facing this time (still 2d though)


^ I inked, colored, and shaded that sketch. I dont really like how the shading turned out, and il have to find a better way to do that, i also kinda messed up the mouth area, and i think the corners are a bit too sharp


^ Another sideways sketch, i liked this one a lot better than the first one


^ Here i digitally inked the sketch


^ And here i colored it!

For your first attempts, they look really good! Especially the front view portrait!

I might make a suggestion then.

If you haven't decided on a fursona yet and you like canine animals, consider doing a less common one, like a jackal or a raccoon. This is only a suggestion, you don't have to take my advice. There are a lot of wolves so it will probably be easier to get some art of a wolf anyways.
Still confused? Then perhaps this will enlighten you!

Im not even shure my fursona would be a canine :P. i started drawing canines because that's what i could find some tutorials on to get started on stuff. and i can probably apply a lot of stuff l learn with canines on other animals too. Basically, canines seemed like a fine starting point. Thanks for the advice though!

These are really good for just beginning! I like how you include the different stages of drawing (sketch, ink, color etc) it's interesting to see your process :fox-:):

@MysticSolstice : Thanks!

I've done some more art. i used the same sketch as my first thing, but after that pretty much everything is different. I tried to make the shapes look a lot more natural, i also used some different colors, fixed the mouth and i tried out a different way of shading stuff. it turned out pretty nicely IMO!


^ Lineart


^ End result

The new version of your drawing looks really cool! I like the new colors and it's definitely improved from the first :fox-:): and that pencil holder looks awesome and is a really cool way to hold your pencils! How did you make it? Is it just holds drilled into a block of wood or something?

Oh my god I love that pencil holder, I have WAY too many art supplies so I always love seeing people's storage for them I'm so weird I know I wish I was crafty like that, but I'd probably kill myself using a drill :fox-:P:
