Still alive...

Post by StrateryB » Sat Dec 26, 2009 8:57 pm

New art on most recent page.
Also: old art is often deleted. Sorry.


Hey guys, back from the dead >.>

I finally thought of updating my dA account so..yeah.
It's all taken by a camera since scanner is dead, so there's a big shadow on most of them, which is my big, fat head btw.

I don't think I've improved at all but people see things differently...

Image
Something I drew for a friend of mine for Christmas. It's her characters.

Image
Vocaloid Miku Hatsune wearing Vocaloid KAITO's scarf, my Vocaloid OTP. Yes, I know her finger's f***ed up, don't mention it.
Might use to practice digital coloring.

Image
Happy Holidays from Hungary, Austria, and Prussia. As of late, shonen-ai/shoujo-ai/yaoi/yuri no longer bother me.
My Hetalia OT3.
Might use for digital coloring.

Image
Original Characters for a collaboration story I'm doing with my friend "Meliona".
It looks better smaller so I rather keep it like that.
The story itself is an action/comedy playing on the idea of heroes and villains. I would say more, but I rather not rant if there's no interest.

I never thought I had a style of my own. Just one I did out of comfort.

I guess that counts as a personal style.

Vocaloid Miku Hatsune again. Colored version of the pic above.
Another attempt at Digital coloring, I think it's alright, still need a lot of work though...

She looks so different from how I used to draw her >.>
don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

Already know her body's strange, and so is her finger, and several other things but I'm not gonna rant.

Yeah, I have a problem with drawing more than one person in pictures or drawing a body picture. Whenever I do the head is always messed up, but I'm trying to draw more body pics and such lately..

Are you talking about the one with glasses? Austria?

Oh yeah its that one.
Um, when you draw a body pic do you start with the body? If so, that might be the problem...I tried but in the end we really have to start with the head then go down.

No, I start with the head., I just fail is all. That, and the Miku pic was a doodle so i didn't really care if the head was big, but then I thought it seemed nice enough to color and uploaded it anyway.

The Hetalia one is a good example of what problems I have with making people the same size.

Well, most people draw the characters separately and then transfer them on the same layer afterwards. I actually try to measure each character to make their size similar. Your style is very appealing though.
Maybe you concentrated so much on giving her a sexy body you forgot about the proportion of her head in comparison. Referring to the Miku picture by the way.

No I can't say that you have improved. Still, the pictures are pretty nice. Its all a matter of you pushing yourself. I'm guessing that you just do this for fun.

Maybe. I don't know. Doodling brings that kind of thought out I guess.

Drawing is just a hobby, yes.
I have no intention of making a career out of art, maybe a webcomic/webmanga here and there, but overall it is a hobby/for fun.
