Ack, evil double post.

So, this is the first time I\'ve used my new scanner.  It is a concept for the tattoo I am planning on getting this upcoming May (unless Mikara Falling gets published first).  It revolves around the Mayan Creation Myth, and has the Tree of Life bursting from First Father\'s chest.  It is just a concept, but I did it in color to sorta give an idea of how I want it.

So, if you don\'t like subjects like sacrifice, don\'t look at this.

Anyway: Tattoo Concept.  I drew the concept for the tattoo I already have as well.  Hehe.  I love drawing.  More comments are on the page itself.

I plan on taking pictures of my still-lifes from my Drawing I class.  The teacher likes them, so I figured, what the heck.  I\'ll post them.  It is good practice for my other art as well, the whole realistic objects thing.  Yep.  SO, COMING SOON.  Mwahaha. *cough*  Yeah.

Well, sadly, there will be no figure drawing in my art class, but there is an open figure drawing hour during my break on Wed, so I plan on dropping in.  Yay!  Maybe I can get people right now!

Anywho, back to my rp character drawings, I have a more finished version of that drawing of Kronos kneeling, which I posted earlier.  However, I despise the background I drew, \'cause I screwed it up. *sigh*  Oh well.  That is why I plan on drawing a full background on a separate page and combining that with the Kronos picture on photoshop.  Later.

So, here it is:

Kronos: In Progress 2

I am actually working on coloring this one digitally.  His hair is a pain in the ass, but it is all starting to emerge.  Pretty cool so far, but I have to get back with my tablet for long enough to get more done, and a really steady hand. *dies*  Again, soon.

Yay.  Thanks, even though you aren\'t here any more!


Anywho, here is a new drawing, a work in progress:

Solaris/Soldeth

It is coming along nicely, I think.

I love the hair... and the tattoo on his neck is ineteresting. If you plan to add shading to him, I`d be curious to see how it turns out!

Good work, my friend! ;)

Another one of those "How could I have missed this surely I am the greatest moron to have ever walked the earth yadda-yadda sorta deals." XD

I like your art, especially the detail you put into the hair! You draw people pretty darn well! And, as I see you are on deviantart... I can now bother you. Ohoho.

I\'d like to see you color and shade your elf-dude--just to see how each different on turns out! :3

Aww, thank you. :throb:

Hair! *dies*  I hate how much detail I put into hair, but I can\'t help myself.  It is so rewarding in the end, just seeing it.  But that is usually more than one sitting.  My attention span sucks.

THANKS!  Bug me on dA if you\'d like.  That would rock, actually.

Good drawing but his eyes are too high in his head and it looks awkward - could be solved by (E gads!) drawing more hair, to make it higher. I find the fact that his eyebrows stand out so starkly to be disorienting.

Love the Elvish upon his neck and the body is great, just need to solve the proprotion issues (and possibly give him two lips :p)

I disagree about both eyes being too high.

With facial proportion, the eyes should be halfway in the head, from crown to chin, and you have that.  Mind, the top of his head is off the page, that might be what is throwing EO. His left eye is too high, it puts his eyes on a different angle to his 1/4 profile.

His face is really, really long, but somehow it works (for me, anyway ^^).  Human proportion, if you measure your eye from inside to outside, is the same measurement between the eyes, from the eyes to the nose, and I think it\'s 2 x eye lengths to your ears.  I know ears start from eye level and end at mouth level (and depicting older people, you give them longer ears because your ears and nose grow throughout your life - something to look forward to as old farts).

The elvish is a great concept.  It seems there\'s a straight/flat part of neck, where the text is straight across, perhaps adding curve all the way around and then following that curved line would work.  Do you use sketch lines on faces before you draw them or just draw?

His right shoulder and right part of the neck comes in too early for the angle you have him in.  I believe the shoulder should\'ve come 2 inches higher.

In spite of all these little details where I\'m taking your drawing apart (sorry!), I do like it verrrr much. :D

Thanks for all the comments!  I\'ll try to work on it all!!!! :throb:



Here is some half finished line-art I am working on.  Mostly a practice for doing different poses, having multiple people in one picture and doing a background.   I generally have no background, no matter what pic I am doing, so it is definitely a place where I need improvement.  But, I’ve been studying the drawing of buildings, and we just started hitting that in art class, so I plan on setting some pics inside.

Alright, so here’s my work in progress for now, will have more later:

Happy Birthday, V’ran!

Rawr. Another double post.  Boo to that.

Anywho, more art!!!  Been on a yaoi binge thinking about GenesisXSephiroth lately, as well as Solaris/SoldethXV\'ran.  So.... here is what came of it (so far):

Solaris and V\'ran in a not too compromising position.

One more. *giggle*

This is Eilzair, my character from Halflight, with his master, Iseth.  Hehe.  Love-eyes at one another.

Don\'t worry, PG-13.

I need to slow down on my drawing!  Sheesh!

Here\'s another of Eilzair and Iseth.  Iseth is on the left, with the wings. Eilzair is on the right.  I think I made him look his age this time. *crosses fingers*

I am trying to work more with references now, to help teach me proportions and musculature and such.  Hopefully I am improving?
