Hi Librarium Online!
Wow, so many of you are great artists! Many of you are professionals it seems like, or most talented amateurs. Me, I don't draw well at all. I thought about whether I should post anymore of my junk here. On the one hand I don't want to ruin LO's great track record of wonderful art. On the other, someone has to be the worst artist here, ha ha
In the end I decided to post my scribble drawings. They are crude and unpolished. I may commission someone here to do art based on my concepts if anyone would like to do them. Of course you can critique these if you want, I know my anatomy sucks, but maybe you will find the right words to make me finally understand how I am doing it wrong. My shading is a total sham, as you can see...
I call this scribble 'The death of Celestine'...
Sorry it's such a mess! But does it convey a feeling or mood at all?
Thanks for looking!
To me, that doesn't look that bad an effort, Frankie! It seems to have a slightly cartoonish style to it, but every artist has their own style and you just have to make it work for you.
I don't feel I can comment on the shading; I occasionally sketch things, when the mood takes me, but very rarely use shading (I basically stick to line art...)
I know I also struggle with anatomical precision, which I usually get around by using a reference image of some kind. But I know I've seen some very good art out there that doesn't rely on precise anatomical depiction, so you don't have to go that way if you're happy with your drawings thus far.
Thank you Deadstar! You're very encouraging, it makes me want to learn a bit more about drawing. I personally come from a heavy Manga fandom, and I do like to see 40K in anime style sometimes, but I think that 40K looks at it's best in more 'realistic' western style art, don't you? It's grittier, feels more solid, and most of the imagery is Western cultured anyway. I least, I think so. Anyway, I'll keep practicing, I would love to be able to draw like the rest of you one of these days, art is kind of magic!
Be well, be blessed!
this is pretty cool. THis is around the skill level i intend to reach.
