    Just got H.R. Giger's Necronomicon, I intend to do some of my own interpretations of his work. Should I post them here, yay/nay?

    I sketched and stuff came out, I dunno.

    Supposed to be a Husk Drone, conscripts turned to machine men that do shit. Not done nor do I think I will finish it.
    Line paper because it was the only thing I had within reach when I felt the urge to draw.

    There are some issues but I'm happy with how they turned out.
    I don't know why the blue one is bigger.

    You guys make me really happy, you know that?

    This combined with my art classes makes me realize how much pure, uncapped creativity exists in the world. If everyone was given the chance to rise to their full artistic potential, the world would be flooded with incredible works (well, more than it is already).

    Feels good, man. Also, my spray-paint stencil project went over really well, but unfortunately I forgot to take pictures, I'll get some next week.

    I do like that minor nudge edit though.

    HOWEVER, dgg, ya gotta help me find a middle-ground here. I know you don't like people trying to draw animu style but I want to find something that's still stylized, not realistic. Clearly I lean eastern rather than western, I love Yoshiyuki Sadamoto's work and character style (though obviously a pinnacle of an anime style), and that's always influenced me, but if you want something much more toward realism, I love Endling's work, especially with lilith and ree.
    Just decrease the size of what you normally draw the closest eye, by a nudge. A 5% decrease in size is what I did when I moved it in a bit on the second one there. You just need to place the eye in accordance to a normal eye, thanks to layers you can just draw the eyes on a layer of their own and mess around trying to find that sweet spot where it looks good. Make a few drawings from different angles with the eyes in a layer of their own and find the eye placement you are satisfied with and use it for future reference.

    I don't mind people drawing anime style. I mind people drawing terrible anime or copy poorly drawn anime from a show because they don't understand that the style is meant to be easy to animate and that even then they suffer from heaps of QUALITY because of budget and time constraints.

    I'm not telling you to draw more towards realism, I'm telling you to draw your style with more realism in hand. As has always been said in this thread, stylization is based on realism. You need to draw what you want to draw, I'm just giving you tips based on what I personally think, if you disagree, then you disagree.

    When in Photoshop I've always painted with a normal, circular size-and-opacity pen pressure brush.
    Are there any better options for when doing different things?

    its very mammalian front arms, hands and shoulders creep me out a bit. the fact i'm calling them shoulders is a bit weird too because really, as a quadruped, they should be hips

    also the pose makes the shoulders look a bit out of perspective

    maybe it should be more like this



    where the blue lines show what you've got and the red lines show perhaps what the pose should resemble more

    Seeing sweet stuff like this makes it all the more hilarious how awful everyone at my school is at ceramics. Our school can barely produce a smooth pot haha. I love your design.

    Most kids in my class have masks that look like this so far and they think they've got the proportions for a face all right.

    and I'm already starting my second mask, which is a leaf. While I'm no good with the wheel, the advanced class at my school has some real talent. Our instructor is quite good himself.

    Highlights shouldn't be just white slapped on the form. Lighting and shadow on something will always derive from its local colour. You've kind of got it happening on the tail so I don't know why you did otherwise on the limbs - as best I can tell the creature is a combination of amber and burnt sienna, so like you've done on the tail you'll want to use some really warm ochres and yellows to light up his arms/leg.

    i think you need to do some still life and then life drawing before you move on to making your own characters and such.

    But you have a point, thanks.

    And scifi things like this:
