SOOoo0o0ooo00OO0O000oooo...

I thought it might be interesting to have you guys tell me what to draw!
Also, some critique along the way would be helpful (:

Here's my rough sketch of a, well, idk yet. It can be a boy or a girl, it doesn't matter. Just tell me how to finish it and I'll post pics of my progress along the way!
I'm just now breaking into my new wacom tablet and it's really awkward, so it may take me a few attempts... so please bear with me (:
I'm not sure if I'm going to attempt to color it yet, but I'm definitely inking...

Here's the pic!

Soo just tell me what to do next and I'll choose which idea to sketch ;D
or maybe all of them... idk, who knows?!! x3


Also, if there's anything I should change on this please let me know. I'm not really new to drawing, but advice is always appreciated. Thanks!:cat_bye:

EDIT: I've been staring at it and noticed that the nose is wayy off... How did that happen? haha, I'll fix that :D

Ooh, this is an awesome idea. Can you give him stretched ears?

an extra nose growing from the forehead

hah, love the suggestions so far. I think a very large, curvey moustache to go with the beard!

SnowWhite

Yay! You guys are awesome!!

Okay, so I have stretched ears from Celestial-Fox (like elf ears or dumbo ears?)
A smile from Cloudy-Chan
A crazy beard from jaidurn
A forehead nose from Evil_cake
And a curvy mustache from Shadowsfade!

I LOVE the suggestions! I'm going to do all of them, and if any more come up I'll add them to the list..

Thanks a million! I'll post an update later tonight... this is going to be fun!

Stretched ears are the correct term for "gauged" ears. :]

Evil_Cake

Ahhhahhaa okay so this is going to be one MESSED UP looking guy! I haven't started yet bc I've been working on another project, but I'll still post a pic tonight..

Thanks everybody for the added details!
+dalmation skin
+**gauged/gross ears** (I should've known that, but you never know with some ppl :D
+ face tentacles... should I just make them like Davey Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean? Or... OH!! I know! I'll make them come out of the dalmatian spots!! YESSSS :cat_wahaha:

Thanks again!:cat_secret:

Okay, here's some progress!!

This is "nameless dude" with gauges, a smile, and a nose on his forehead... I also got kinda creative since, well, we all know what stereotype this character is leading towards :3

http://i635.photobucket.com/albums/uu71/sonatacries/FTM%20MGA/p2gaugessmileandnose.png

Added face tentacles to the list :D


Oh! We also need a name for him! And clothes and hair... The pic only goes down to his shoulders so try not to go any further :)

Thanks so much for all your help! I'll have another pic up shortly

SnowWhite
01-07-2012, 01:15 AM
ok! So... I'm up to date on everything. I'll post the pics in the morning, so good night!:cat_bye:

Nameless dude with a beard and curvy mustache...

Nameless Dude with tentacles...

http://i635.photobucket.com/albums/uu71/sonatacries/FTM%20MGA/p4tentacles.png

And finally, Nameless Dude with dalmatian spots!!! (And finished eyes, but they can change anytime if you want)

http://i635.photobucket.com/albums/uu71/sonatacries/FTM%20MGA/p5dalmatianeyes.png


Also, I wasn't able to add faces to the tentacles (Sorry evil_cake!) on the account that they'd be really small and if I made the tentacles any bigger they'd cover the entire face... so I just made due with what I had and this is how it turned out!

Sooo whadya think??

Now all I need is hair, clothes (top only please), and possibly a name, but I think Nameless Dude fits him pretty well :D

Thanks again!

Looking pretty good, IMO. And btw, that's a REALLY good way to get practice on the tablet. Nice thinking.

SnowWhite

Thanks you guys!! ^^
Welll, the character's open for grabs bc I honestly have no idea what I'd do with him otherwise. So if anyone wants to include him in any of their stories/mangas, go on ahead! I don't mind :3

I'm not really sure what to do with him now... I'll probably add hair and clothes later on, but for now I guess he's just ganna collect dust in my harddrive... it was a great exercise to get used to my tablet, though my sketches are still too scratchy.. I think I'm ganna start drawing fan art now. My goal is to improve the speed of my drawings as well as my skill, so I think that if I repetitively draw something familiar to me I'll improve :)
At least, I hope...
But anywho, I'll post another thread once I get around to drawing again. I'm kinda in a bleh stage so it might be a day or two before I post something.

Thanks again for all your support! Seriously, you have no idea (:

OH!
P.S. - If anybody wants to use my idea of "create your own character" I don't mind. It really is a helpful tactic!

Cheers!
