Hmm, seems like you're really fleshing out that character. Are you going to (or are already) use her for something?

Wow, Matt! I see alot of improvement here @_@ Great work! Your characters look alot more realistic now, but still so cuuuute <3

@Rio - Illy's a major character in a novel I'm doing.

@Linz - My goal is realism that's cute.

@JJ & Demon - I've yet to finish a whole scene. Maybe I'll make that my first.

Also, since I've been listening to the song in the trailer for Transistor all day, I thought I'd do a quick sketch of it before bed.

Matt
03-30-2013, 06:29 PM
Thanks guys.

@Bunnyvoid - I don't do a whole ton on the hair. I just block in the base color, then draw increasingly thin strands in random shades of the same color and add the highlights last.

I'm actually still doing it and I'm tired of watching my peers surpass me. So let's see if I can get at least a sketch per day going.

This is Naomi, the protagonist in the story I did for NaNoWriMo (I finished for once this year).

For comparison, this is how I drew her two years ago:

Wow, Naomi has really matured between those two years :O

Matt
01-02-2014, 10:33 PM
I tried to reproduce a style I like -- the one they used in the art for Bastion and Transistor, but upon further examination, I realized that Bastion and Transistor's artist never left an area unshaded or unhighlighted, whereas I left massive blanks and generally don't know color theory, or how light and shadow work near as well as she does. Of course, I plan to change that.

Naomi seems to be aging with me. At one point, I would have worried that that made her a Sue, but I've grown past that. Progress, I tell you.

Lastly, here are some mermaids trying to kill each other. Also, the presence of female nipples makes this thread officially NSFW. Achievement unlocked, possibly?

I LOVE A GOOD SET OF NIPPLES AT 4 IN THE MORNING.

Seriously, I like this pic alot. It has a dynamic to it and the anatomy is p. good! Some errors here and there but overall I really like it.

ALSO! If you don't want your whole thread NSFW, then just put this pic in a spoiler and label it NSFW. Just a tip!

Cloudy

Mermaid fight! woo, that's so awesome! great job with all of the poses in this one, they are placed well together and make quite a lovely picture! Keep it up.

Matt
01-13-2014, 01:22 PM
For a male artist, I don't draw boobs much. I'm gonna try to remedy that and get as good as my peers (read: Sutari, Iccy, Linz, etc.). Therefore, I'll keep the whole thread NSFW.

An attempt at drawing Sierra, a character I've been drawing over the years since about four years ago.
http://i.imgur.com/dzsj5xj.png

One from Posemaniacs and three from imagination. Among the three from imagination is a second, slightly better attempt at Sierra. Also, more boobs (meaning, NSFW).

Nice anatomy c: I always like it when people pay attention to the anatomy :3

Matt
01-31-2014, 03:53 PM
I just got two anatomy books: Loomis's Figure Drawing for All It's Worth and Valerie L. Winslow's Classic Human Anatomy: The Artist's Guide to Form, Function, and Movement. The latter looks more like an A&P book, which has been helpful for work as well as art. It's even got all the correct terminology for pretty much every muscle and bone in the entire body, coupled with accurate anatomical art. Now when the doctor dictates, "thumbing the T8," or "pain in the thoracic spiny group," I know what he's talking about.

Webcomic/story characters, drawn four days apart with marginal improvement:

I feel like I'm moving out of that awkward transitional phase between anime and semirealism, and now everyone I draw doesn't look like they're squinting. Also, I drew a male character.

Hum. Definately digging the more realistic designs. Suits your more three-dimensional drawing style quite well.

Good job me'ol chap.

I'm not sure how I actually get better at all despite frequent hiatuses, but the longer I procrastinate, the farther Iccy, Sutari, Cype, Tay, and the rest of you get ahead of me. I'm a couple days from being 20 now, and I started posting art here at 14. I'm far too old to be stuck where I am. I'm gonna study and get awesome, and I'll become one of those ridiculously good artists. Hold me to that.

Your past two posts have been AWESOME!! Beautiful deer and the profile below it is just great! The guy with the beard looks like Jesse from Breaking Bad. This last girl is very pretty :) I love her face!

Matt
02-27-2014, 10:12 PM
I don't see the Jesse resemblance myself, but my brother said it looked like him too, so maybe I just haven't watched enough Breaking Bad (I'm on season 2 and I already consider it the best TV show I've ever seen).

Well, keeping up with the art. Here's a girl. Her boobs were referenced, but everything else is from imagination. NSFW not because of boobs, which are covered, but because there's female genitalia present.

February 28 now, improved Will the beanie guy based on Iccy's help and made him my avatar:

I really really like your stuff matt! And you sure have been improving a lot from your first sketches (I've been browsing a bit of your work)
From this particular thread, I personally enjoy very much all of it, but particularly your sketches. The one of the girl sitting on top of a rock (I believe it's a rock) in the woods, the girl on top of the train scene, the last three of the guy doing grafitty, the other guy with the rifle and that anime girl, and so on. They impress me because they're just sketches but they already feel very real. I would like to see the finished version of both scenes though, the one of the train and the one of the girl in the woods.

Matt
03-02-2014, 08:31 PM
Thanks for commenting. I'll put some more work into one or both of those. I'll need to learn backgrounds someday, at any rate.

On the quality of sketches, I do feel like they have more energy than the stuff I polish a bit more. I'm getting a book in the mail soon that should help with that (it's called Force or something).

Here's two girls I drew in five minutes each, if I recall right.

Twitch Plays Pokemon picked May as their character, and proceeded to make her a schizophrenic who uses said schizophrenia to pretty much take over the world.

Yay for headcanon. Here's May (or as far as TPP is concerned, "A").
http://i.imgur.com/knbOnPf.png

Got another one done today:
http://i.imgur.com/hSewYnY.png

The thing about this one is, the TPP Reddit community seems inclined to cast A as a complete sociopath who only wants to take over the world, which makes her kinda boring, and much more a villain than an antihero. All I did here really was give her more than one emotion.

And one more for today:
