My weird scribbles

Post by Dione on Thu Jul 06, 2017 4:54 pm

Sooo hi! Some of you may or may not know, but I try to do art sometimes. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. You decide. 

It took me quite a while to get to the point where I was sort of confident enough to post some drawings here on the forum. I do have [url=dionecaptor.deviantart.com]deviantART[/url] where I post more stuff. For some reason it's easier for me to post stuff on there than it is here. I don't know why, I tried to figure it out but I guess I'll never know. I do know I get very self-conscious about what I do and make, so that may be a playing factor as well. Anyways, I hope I don't burn your eyes.


I guess I'll start off with some of my characters. I don't really follow the original Sonic style because it just doesn't fit the way I draw but yeah.. I do have a comparison pic with one of my other characters. This is Dione, my main char btw.


This is Felicia, a red cat.


And here we have Cayenne, a springbok antelope. She's naturally got brown hair with cream highlights but dyes it rainbow. She's also a singer in a touring rockband.


This is my attempt at a Sonic-y style. I still think it looks horrible and I don't know why I even finished it but here we go.

I don't see why you're so uncertain about it. Your art looks good, certainly (well, subjectively, I don't like being a bitch to others even if vaguely XD) better than a lot of people's that I've seen. It can use improvement like different positions and poses and all that stuff, lets be honest, everyone's work can use improvement, though your coloring looks good. Lines are also very nice.

Anyway, it's always going to look bad to you. That's the life of an artist. But you have to keep pushing on and improving and showing the world what you can do because you really have got some talent showing here. c:

The Sonic-y art isn't even bad. Again, practice will help a ton. Anyway, best of luck in future. Razz

I think your anthro style is v cute, Dione! x3 I like the Felicia doodle, and the fur and hair on Dione..
As for the Sonic style, I guess all I can suggest is, don't be scared to make the eyes enormous cause we all know that's the main thing
And um... to make it look better, I'd say you could try drawing those eyes first, and then joining them with a round muzzle? To add a little more depth to it, so the muzzle line doesn't look like just a random line on the head, I guess xD But other than that, like I said, I think you're doing progress, and your style really is getting cute x3

Ayyyyy it finally happened! 
Your art is finally here for everyone to see Very Happy
It all looks good and you can see how much more confident you're getting with lines as well :3

I wouldn't worry about it, Dione! Your art is just fine! If you're not confident with how your art is turning out you can always try experimenting with different styles, or keep trying to perfect your current style. Just don't give up no matter what, and never let someone discourage you from doing something you enjoy, but more importantly, don't let your own thoughts discourage you.

Aww thanks so much you guys, that was so reassuring, you won't believe xD

@Burning-Fox: I did try a few different positions and I believe I have some stuff laying around somewhere which shows that, but it's more that I still have to practice those a lot before they're even at the level I'm at with the current headshots/busts ^^;;

@Electrisa: I'll keep that in mind next time I'm trying Sonic/SEGA style again. It's just really hard for me and imo it doesn't really fit my characters anyways (Mostly bias as well because I prefer the anthro style anyways, heh,,,)

@ForevaYoung: YEP IT ACTUALLY HAPPENED 0o0 Thanks friend <3

@Valtiel: Thanks for the kind words, sometimes one can be their own worst enemy, especially when it comes to these kind of things, heh..

Tiem 4 updates


Meet Jeffrey, a dickhead mouse who doesn't care about anyone but himself. He's one of my characters classified as NPCs since I won't use him for RP but still influences my other characters' stories.


This is Emes's old design. Emes is also an NPC. When I made him I thought I was still going to use him in RP and Uncanny-Illustrator was so nice to redesign him, but after a while he seemed less appealing to write for and I didn't really want to continue with him as a character. 


This is Cerignis, a character of a friend on dA. They're awfully nice and I hope I did their character justice. 


I know I should start shading things more often because it ususally gives a way nicer feel to pictures/drawings/stuff in general, but I either lack time or motivation most of the times. Whoops.

-Tells self to shade stuff, continues to post and make flat colours-

ANYWAYS!!!

This is Joe. Joe is Joe Acelia's character. Joe is a bab. 

This is Spekkal's Merylin (I HOPE I WROTE IT RIGHT), done with an expression from Soupery on Tumblr

This is Raphael, one of Dregan's chars. Also done with Soupery's expressions.

Electrisa's Taph who is adorable and needs a hug maybe perhaps. (Also done with Soupery's expressions.

Speaking of Elec, she's inspired many people to try colour palettes. I know I'm far from good but.. Have an Amaris belonging to Amaris Tollkirsche!

-VIGOROUSLY DUSTS OFF THIS THREAD- Right I thought I should give a bit of an update here, seeing as I haven't really posted anything in a while!


This is a jumpy baby


This was when I actually felt up to the challenge of drawing Sarah, but I never really finished it. I still have to add in her spikes on her legs and arms >w>"


This man is Dione's dad! It's not my proudest design but it works, sort of. He kinda looks like a woman here.. whooooops


MY LATEST PRIDE AND A DESIGN THAT KILLED ME! Meet Vivien, my newest character yet. She's a kelpie and her WIP bio is on my toyhou.se which is linked in my signature!

------------------------------------

That's all for today~

*TEARS OFF COAT REVEALING AN 'I LOVE VIVIEN' SHIRT*
HER DESIGN IS LOVELY AND YOU SHOULD BE PROUD. Her markings look like hell though, but you've really nailed her! She looks brilliant! And I lvoe her striking yellow eyes against her dark body!

Also, that Sarah is super cute! You really should finish it though, she deserves it :c

Overall, super glad to see you bring this thread back! Keep it up! <3

I. LOVE. THESE.
The Sweetie one particularly! All of these remind me of, like... ancient murals or something

hello yes I love these
I adore how you can tell what character is what from the little details, like Maxie's weapon, Qursai's tail, Volt's braids...
Please keep doing em! It's really helping you practice the basics of anatomy too! Keep it up!
