While trying to find some art for this thread I confirmed what I was suspecting, I have done way too much fan art this last year, so I'm going to attempt making some more original work as I feel it's been dumbing down my creativity.

Some quick pencil sketches

Trying to do some digital painting of animals here

So far only animals and monsters as I fail at drawing humans, so I might put some up for critique later on. I hope I can post some more stuff here in the near future

Sparrows are adorable and there are always a bunch of them in the garden, so always enough reference.

Yaes sparrows! I love those birds. They swarm my garden a lot. Never coming alone, always bringing the entire family (and sometimes extended family).

I gotto say, your painting skills are admirable.

Well thanks, I'm still trying out a lot of different styles as I haven't really found my own definitive style yet, but I like the more painting-style approach. It's really relaxing to do as well.
Anyway, something I drew today:

Yay, you made a thread. You have a lovely painting style ;o that sparrow and the pig are looking great. Were they both done on the GB?

Thank you :D
Nah, the things in the first post were from before I joined here and the pig was also done in ps, but I'll probably do some stuff like this in the GB in the future. Up until now I have mainly been practicing some other stuff there.

So, made this on the GB. I've got used to my usual brushes way too much. Couldn't get that same feel here, looks way too blurry. Tried with harder brushes, but that looked too much like cell shading.

And the duck is way too big as well.

Cool pic!
If you're having troubles on the GB, I suggest using a mix of the Ink and Pen tool together. Use the Ink tool for the hard cell like shading to block in your colours then use the Pen tool as a blender with a 'middle' colour to create a gradient. Or if you want a softer look, use the Pen tool in alternating opacities. It's really trial and error in the GB, take some time out to experiment with all the tools and their sliders, you get some really awesome effects!!

Yeah, I used the ink tool as a base, then used the pen on top. But the GB really is a nice place just to try stuff out.

It's supposed to look like one yeah

Hmm yeah, maybe that would help making it less of a vague smear.

And thanks everyone.

Well, it's due time that I posted something new.
Haven't had much time to do anything, let alone really finish something, so it still looks sketchy. Anyway, I will be trying to draw a hundred demons. No idea when I'll finish or if I will ever finish, but here's the first one.

His name is Paimon, and he rides a dromedary, even though I pictured it on a camel. Camel's are more interesting, double the humps, double the fun.

Also, I finally have drawing class for the first time in my life, so I've been doing a lot of traditional stuff for school exercises. Here's the latest thing

Thank youuu
I'm still better at drawing animals than drawing anything remotely human..

I think Sylux was asking about the pipe-thing.

YOU SHOULD POST YOUR OLD DEMONS SO THEY CAN SEE THE IMPROVEMENT. the old demon <3.
Man i like your work and you know it so yeah... Why not post something remotely human? -hinthint- ; )

Taragon
11-11-2013, 05:46 AM
The old demons are completely different in style, so it's not really comparable.
The pipe-thing is my fascination with filth, dust and dirt. It's a ventilation pipe in our school

And yeah, I lost this challenge to Bya, so I had to do a self-portrait..
It's kinda horrible, but I got tired of fixing everything so this was the result;

Ghehe

So, I'm a bit annoyed by my limitations in digital art, and I wanted to try some traditional
I love ink and I tried to color it with diluted acryllic paint. Used the wrong paper so that looks like shit, but I'm satisfied for a first time try. Hopefully improvements will follow.

A lot of people are the opposite; great at people but don't know where to start with animals. It's cool that you capture the all the birds and beasties so fantastically. I love this blue eye thing too, its so weird and cool and textured. Also, you have all the paint skillz.

You should try watercolor out!

@ Mitama_
Thanks haha, that's too kind

@JJJorgie
Yeah, that's what I actually wanted to do, but I didn't have the right stuff so I settled for acryl. I'm going to try it though. Soon. I hope.
