    I really dig the charcoal and/or chalk aesthetic you have going on Acadia! That's probably not even the right term to describe it, but I really do love it. Mind if I ask what program/ medium you are using?

    Love the depth of field you capture in that latest piece, and the purple-y forest colors on the one before that are just fantastic.

    Thank you for the kind words! I’m using Procreate on an iPad, but I’m using it the same way I’d ever used photoshop (which I haven’t used since I got this iPad, and I’m questioning whether I need a computer now). The charcoal looking brush is the 6b pencil. The depth of field effect was a perspective blur on the background layer, centered on the little guy in the middle

    Hoo boy I sure do go a long time between drawing or painting or anything at all.

    Here's another drawing from ages ago that I'm trying to color/update with new knowledge. I feel like there's a lot missing that I haven't yet accounted for. Goop bubbles from the movement and dripping at least. There's a lot of still surviving original sketch in this, which maybe I should redo

    I love that style! Great work on the rhino especially, it maintains to proper proportions while being thoroughly cartoony!

    Here’s a little sequence from that Star Wars game I’m GMing. They interrogate this guy to find his supplier.

    @Bubster Wolf thanks! I’m hoping to do a little coherent storyline here soon. Just testing out stuff right now! Doing figure studies too, here’s the best of the bunch from tonight. I keep guessing on anatomy in my unreferenced drawings and doing it poorly so now is the time to study again I guess. NSFW technically

    Love that figure! Looks really good. How much time did you spend on it?

    @AntonioMabs maybe 2 hours!

    I never know how long to spend on these. This is based on a sketch from years ago:

    That looks awesome! Reminds me of Ready Player One, I think the glasses/helmet

    Look the gritty style!

    acadia
  • Endless_SerpentsEndless_Serpents Registered User regular
    Yeah that’s right, just look.

    acadia
  • acadiaacadia Registered User regular
    Yeah I don’t picture Star Wars as a particularly clean environment, so the grit works. Though I should probably branch out some more, I use this brush a ton.

    we’re finishing up a dnd game, so i’m doing an illustration to commemorate it. we’re quietly dance-marching through the jungle to the beat of the halfling bardbarians bongo drums

    At some point in the process I actually looked up what a bear looks like, because it just... wasn't looking... right.

    Huge fan of the owl piece! It reminds me a lot of old bird watcher books my grandad had.

  • acadiaacadia Registered User regular
    thanks! i wish i had the patience for bird watching.

    a new one and some fixes on an old one, but i think maybe i insanely oversaturated it. I just wanted it to look like dusk or near sunset or whatever

    really love your colours!

  • acadiaacadia Registered User regular
    @barcs that's one thing i'm super insecure about actually, so thanks! i love your consistency and old-school style

  • barcsbarcs ireland Registered User regular
    yeah colour is scary! i've only been colouring my stuff the last three or four years so it's where i have the most doubts with my own work! using the colour picker tool on a bunch of my favourite artists really made me realize even crazy colours work if the piece is consistent! really dig your stuff man, the star wars pieces and the bear piece especially! looking forward to more!
