(Requests open) Northpaws Art thread
« on: January 05, 2016, 04:46:25 am »
So, since I just realised I have an almost two thirds done upper body drawing of Northpaw in a suit I was planning to upload to here, I'm gonna go ahead and pre-empt myself finishing it by making this topic, hooray.

Since I aim to improve I expect feedback of the HARSHESTEREST variety, and, I dunno? I'll take requests? Or something? I sometimes need inspiration or things, to draw, so this'll give me the drive I need when I stall and wind up like, "Uuuuugh what do I do I already drew my MLP OC in Diablo 2 Necromancer armor how can I top that!?"

 Just don't expect triple a art, most of my stuff is done in the space of about 8 hours tops (My avatar was an hour job without a damn reference so I'm either fast or impatient, or both)

Seeing as we both need practice, might I propose a trade?

If you like you can draw my sona or which ever of my characters if ya want to. I usually say that I often get inspiration from others work, although sometimes I get those spontaneous moments of inspiration. Using references can help improve your art (except i don't usually use them lol). I'm aiming to learn to draw more realistically to improve my other drawings,

I'm game, art trades are pretty rad because it doesn't make anyone feel like they're being a cheap skate

Sure, I'll give it a shot, I mean, I'll need a reference image to know what they look like and what colours go where, but yeah, I'll give it a shot. ANd I get the references thing, I use references to get a basic go of a things design, and then I go referenceless after that to improve under my own power.

Ok ^^ here is my main characters ref http://ringtaildog.deviantart.com/art/Lemurdog-REF-2016-580360077
Yeah it's good to start out with them but not be reliant on them

It's like Art bases. It's good to find your sea legs with them, but use them too often, or follow some of the awful advice on tumblr about using references/bases, and you'll never progress, yeah, your art might look good, but it's textbook calligraphy pretty, not, wild and fun pretty.

Double post for a just cause

I got it finished hurrah. I regret colouring it though. I can see why I dislike the colouring on this one, but I'll leave it to you guys to guess.

UPDATE
LEMURDOG IS DONE!?
I got way too finnicky over this and ruined it a little, it looked a lot nicer about 12 hours ago, but the damage I did destroyed the teeth on some paper and made the damage irreversible so I wound up having to change the neck and one ear.

That's really weird, though the same thing happened with my previous image post so it may just be data not loading properly?

Tinypic is blocked here, unfortunately. I recommend imgur or Photobucket

Ah, makes sense, I was going to upload it to FurAffinity...but nah, that would feel and be about seventy shades of wrong.

Hmm, guess I need to strike off tinypic tho, I better not default back to it again either. Damn you highschool forum days.

Pssshhh, that's my art, since when is an artist ever proud of their own art XD?
I am proud of how the paws turned out considering I have literally never even done human fingers before, let alone paws.
Edit: I just looked at my finished products wall and remembered THIS was SUPPOSED to be in my opening post, but I didn't feel like looking for it, oops.

The one piece of my art I've found no reason to dislike in my entire....maybe...like 2 months of drawing.
And if you're clever, and don't feel like bugging me, the link here may lead you to my facebook MLP page.

Why thank you. I actually try to keep my stuff technically simple in most respects (I'll spice one or two things up per drawing and just go simple and cute for everything else)

I've been itching to upload this but due to the size of the actual piece of paper it was drawn on, both this, and it's twin Manga drawing aren't going to be amazing quality uploads, I may take the time to set up a light box or something whatever I dunno to take a good, well illuminated version of this and it's twin once both are done and one is coloured. UUUGHHHH Y'know for my first time drawing a body and a background, Archers Unlimited Blade Works turned out okay.
