I felt i was taking up too much space in doodle thread. I am making this thread so i have some motivation to draw more often, also a friend stole my internets so i cant play vidjagames D:.

Been drawing for a year now and i dont know what else to say... a lot of this stuff can probably be found on the doodle thread but eh, ill put it in here.

EDIT, forgot to say, im learning to use colors with acrylic and such, but i'd like to know what brushes and stuff in corell painterX are good for coloring a little bit less funky than the drawings below

    That last one, for some reason, really clicks with me. I think it's the color choice. But I like it.

    On the others, your crosshatching is too uneven. You'll have fairly straight grids lining up in one spot, and hairy, scattery lines in others (the skull, for example). The hand - eh, you need to work on hands. I won't say more than that, because I hate hands myself.

    But let me reiterate, I really like that last one. Except for the doodles on top. Just leave it at the body on a white page.

    thanks for the comment.

    I'll try to be more careful with my hatching.

    It's just jarring, because you have a pretty clear grid hatched in the skull's eyes and nose, but elsewhere the lines are all over the place. If they were all sketchy, it would be more tolerable. Or all hatching.

    ...and what exactly is that fourth one?

    Your mad scribbling is really really working against you. Take a deep breath and think before you mark.

    Line is a wonderful thing. A beautifully made pen and ink piece is absolutely incredible. But it takes practice and care and skill with mark making. Stipling, hatching, crosshatching, etc etc. One errant line or dot can ruin the piece... and right now nearly all your marks are errant lines.

    Look at Bernie Wrightson below. Now this guy was a fucking master of pen, ink, and line.

    EVERY line serves the whole.

    Or look at Charles Dana Gibson.

    Or the hundreds of other pen and ink guys.

    I'm not a big fan of scratchy line styles, myself ( I like cartoon inking styles). That said, I can't decide if that last one is a mess or a masterpiece. The lines are providing form and going in the proper directions and the wild color choices still accurately convey where the light is hitting. I would just erase the lines surrounding the figure. If it was large size I can see it in a magazine surrounded by uncomfortable modern furniture.

    Looking at that Bernie Wrightson you would never guess that he drew so many horror comics.

    Perspective and pose on that naked guy is really strange - but I'll wait until you post the finished piece to really say much about it.

    As for brushes, what kind of PS brush-look are you shooting for?

    yeah that naked guy is giving me troubles, ill do it on canvas with real paint instead.


    As for brushes in photoshop... i donno, any to make stuff look real or whatever... Been using painter instead of photoshop for the brushes though, its more user friendly.

    I think the sketchy shading looks nice. And I especially like the ones with color. The way you capture contrast is interesting to me.

    I think maybe you need to try drawing without....scribbling? It seems like you are unsure of where to place your lines, so its coming out like chicken scratch. Try drawing one line instead and see where that gets you.
