View Full Version : DestronMirage22's "art"

05-08-2017, 12:17 PM

Yeah, all the so-called "art" in this thread was pretty bad. I didn't like looking at it. I'm just gonna keep trying to improve and if I ever get any better then I'll share my progress again. In the meantime I'll just leave this thread as is, without my previous posts.

To all my fellow members who commented in this thread and who offered me advice and support despite being a terrible artist: thank you.
You'll never know just how much I appreciate all you guys did for me.
Thank you.

That's actually a really cute style :D . I'd build on it some more.

You could really get it to look like if modern American cartoon style and vintage anime got married and had a baby. And I mean that in a good way.

(The years of difference in art style makes me think of a Professor Farnsworth quote. "Some say I'm robbing the cradle, but I say she's robbing the grave!")

Those are cool dude! I've heard people say hands are hard to draw. Yours look good. I really like the pose in the first one with the fist in the air. Any plans on adding text?

Yeah speech bubbles. :)

one thing i find that's very helpful to look at is how animators use structure lines for their figures.


i see that you already add the center lines and eye line for the heads.
that's a very good practice, and i can definitely see progress in your head drawings.

consider possibly trying this for other body parts and limbs.
i find that always helps me whenever i'm drawing :)

there's probably more thorough examples, but this one shows the general idea.


hope this is helpful? :)

I'm not good at drawing

i would like to share my ideas of "good" or "not good' as it pertains to art.

for me, art in my experience is about self expression and personal growth.

it is an escapism for the artist. something that brings pleasure and joy.

as long as you are having fun while you are doing it, that's what truly matters.

progress will come in time with study and practice.
as long as you are enjoying what you are doing, that's the thing to focus on most.

at least that's the way i perceive art. :)
...and that's my two cents that nobody asked for :lol:

Thanks for the advice and your thoughts about it all myconius! I'll definitely try more in regards to using shapes and outlines for the base of my characters. And I always enjoy hearing people's thoughts about art. So thanks for all that! :D

you're very very welcome! you'd be amazed at how helpful even just practice drawing basic blocks, cylinders and sphere at various angles can be. :)

i do enjoy practicing geometric shaped features.

(not a stupendous example, but maybe helpful?) -> http://myconius.deviantart.com/art/Block-Heads-6-29-2015-543032578

simplifying the shapes makes it a lot easier to mentally process them.

any time! i'm always up for a good art discussion. :D

I think you're doing pretty great :D . You should look at more tutorials for sure.

I like Sycra (https://www.youtube.com/user/Sycra) personally, but his art is a little less cartoony. Jazza (https://www.youtube.com/user/DrawWithJazza), however, does to some really cartoony art and he should be a good artist to follow for development.
