So I started experimenting with lineless artwork.
and to clarify, i mean "lineless" as in no black outline.

Well if it was lineless, I dont think you'd see the outlines of the nose and clavicles and pectorals, but more like shadows that are caused by them.

there's no black outline, like in normal drawings.
that's what I meant by "lineless"

I kinda agree with Josh. The effect isn't as strong with the lines defining details like the clavicles. The method you're using now is still quite interesting, but I think if you used shapes instead of lines, you could make some cool graphic effects reminiscent of Samurai Jack, et cetera. :)

I'm FAR too lazy to do anything like that, but it's an interesting idea. I'll look into it--maybe try some practice sketches using only shapes and shadows.

oh... well i don't know how to use those soft-wares so i don't really know how to help you >.<
if your using sai, illuststudio, manga studio or photoshop then i guess i could dictate something that will make you improve..
>.< i can't understand your style of drawing.. who is your reference anime or reference artist?

i dont see anything WRONG... but i dont think you did everything right, either. like, lack of detail, maybe?

Please don't start a new thread every time you post new artwork. Just post in your original thread (even though it has been dead for a long time) so folks can see you progress in skill as they go through your pages.

I don't really like this style, try defining your characters more. I mean I respect your talent and everything but regular drawings would probably be better

Even though you don't like this style, it may jive with someone else. Art is subjective. If you don't like, you don't like it but that doesn't mean that you should tell the person "hey, go make this and this style". The art world would be boring otherwise.

I understand. As I said, he's talented. I can't help but wonder what his chars would look like if they weren't lineless. :p
Oh well, to each his own :)

^ There is no such thing as "regular" drawing. And there is also nothing wrong with eliminating black lines in drawing either.

But anyways, I definitely like the concept of these drawings. I especially like the one that is pink, black, and white. I like the simplicity, but maybe some detail would add a bit more to the pictures. Especially detail and shading on the skin and whatnot (which can be accomplished still without black lines). Uuuuuh, don't have many other helpful tips unfortunately. Just... more shading. And maybe some varying poses.

Atelier art style don't use lines at all, everything is drawn in value, so there is no "Normal drawing" like stated already. Also there are no lines in life its only our perception that something is a line. The problem is your not separating your darkest dark from your lightest light, everything is staying one or two values which gives no definition.

I think value sketching is the type of tutorial your needing to read, hey wait!
distorted dirk has been dead for so long. why is the comments keep coming now?

Here's a comment: I often get the irresistible urge to flap my arms and eat handfuls upon handfuls of birdseed. Rawwwk!

... Er, um. Pardon. No idea what came over me. As to drawing with values... what they said.

... Except that manga uses ink, so you might want to be hatching. But, well, yeah. >_>
