Re: Drawings and other Art

Please continue to comment on Squid's drawing. I'm just going to go ahead and post a couple of mine. mini/wink

I drew this drawing yesterday. It is a human version of Princess Storm (You can see the reference minifig here).

I first sketched it out on paper, then traced over it in Inkscape, fixing errors and cleaning it up.

I drew the following picture today. This is based off Brickcrazy's Vega Zyro character from his upcoming brickfilm. (You can see the reference here). I did take many creative liberties, though, so it's not really too accurate to the minifigure.

The Princess Storm picture is my first fairly-good human drawing (I have only drawn a couple of other humans, and they were terrible), so these are still a bit rough. All comments and critiques are welcome!

Not bad, Rio.  You'll improve by doing.

VEGA ZYRO!!!!!  I had the pleasure of reading the screenplay by BrickCrazy.  I'd love to see it as a brickfilm!

Re: Drawings and other Art

Squid, I like your drawing. It has a nice, fairy-tail feel to it. Also, his eyes look fine to me. mini/wink

Rioforce, I like your style of drawing. As I pointed out yesterday, it's very different from mine. They have a nice, cartoon drawing feel to them.

Recently, rioforce's work with vectors inspired me to try my hand at it. Here is my own human version of Vega Zyro, a young, cocky galactic bounty hunter and star of my upcoming brickfilm.  Created in Inkscape using the same process as described by rioforce. While closer to the original minifigure's design, I too took a few creative liberties. This is actually my first attempt at trying to draw an actual person. Also, it's only my second vector drawing. Comments and constructive criticism are both more than welcome.

Re: Drawings and other Art

I really like it!  It so detailed, and it has a nice combination of colours.

Re: Drawings and other Art

I really like the lighting in the picture. What made you think of painting a bunny playing an accordion at sunset? mini/tongue

Re: Drawings and other Art

That's a great drawing, Wammy.:)

I do not brickfilm anymore, but you can see my live action stuff here.

Re: Drawings and other Art

Fantastic! I really like the style of it.

Re: Drawings and other Art

Since this is not a brickfilm movie poster, this seemed like the most logical place to post this. Working on this character poster as both a promotion for my upcoming action short and as a portfolio project for my digital imaging class. Would appreciate some thoughtful critique.

Re: Drawings and other Art

Your poster looks as professional as any one hanging in a movie theater.  I like the logos (free tech and Reno3).  People often overlook the significance of a good logo, and yours is efficient and lends itself nicely to the monochromatic color scheme.  I'm wondering if you "eye droppered" an actual red pixel from the jacket for the logo's color.

Re: Drawings and other Art

Here are a few colored pencil drawings I made focusing on hair and skin.

My scanner faded the color a bit...

You do very nice work! I also enjoy drawing with colored pencil.

I really like the detail on the faceless hair. mini/smile

Re: Drawings and other Art

It looks a bit flat vertically, but the texture and detail is superb in the hair image.  I really love it.

Re: Drawings and other Art

I had gone a few months without drawing very much.  But I've been trying to get back into it so I can actually get better hopefully.

Here's a practice drawing of a Faloovian goblin:

Re: Drawings and other Art

That looks really good! I like how the hair is all scraggly.

My friend challenged me to draw Joy, from Inside Out, and I did.
