Came out scratchy again. I need to stop using the pencil tool...
Well anyways, I was wondering if anyone has something in mind they want me to draw? I'm open to requests.
C&C welcome as always :D

skullzhead [Profile] 2013/8/5 - 11:16:13
Duuude! This looks really cool! I love the gold colors with the greens, and the amazing textures. Really nice job here.
nighstar54 [Profile] 2013/8/5 - 11:25:39
Yes, I actually have a request could you draw my phoenix Nero? [link] (Link)
dragon-drawer [Profile] 2013/8/5 - 11:37:26
I love all the details you put into the scales, they're so shiny! Also, since you're asking for requests, I think this creature would look pretty cool in your style. [link]
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/8/5 - 12:43:48
nightstar54: That is a pretty cool phoenix! I'd love to do him!!!
dragon-drawer: That's interesting and should be fun :D
So both will probably be done within a week. I'll see what I can do :) Thanks for the feedback guys!!!
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/8/5 - 13:43:47
noo never stop using the pencil tool! It makes your drawings so unique and beautiful :)
frost_star [Profile] 2013/8/5 - 15:15:51
can you draw Myrik for me? [link]
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/8/6 - 8:9:51
Imagamaker: Thanks! You rock!!!
Frost-star: Sure I can do her too, but I'm not sure if it will be done within a week though. However, when I do draw Myrik I don't want to offend you by making her the wrong age. How old would you say she is?
frost_star [Profile] 2013/8/6 - 12:17:51
I would say about 15-18
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/8/6 - 12:34:38
k thanks :)
catgirl [Profile] 2013/8/10 - 3:44:43
This is so pretty. Love those shiny green scales and that foot!

Left this open several times.
Does anyone know him?
This was fun, but pretty hard to complete.
(I hate the hair! ;-;)
lol that background.. I think it suits his character perfectly! <3

pumadragon [Profile] 2013/8/4 - 21:22:55
The hair looks really great actually, it just may need to come out farther on the left side. I love the color and background, and the highlight on the tie, he sort of reminds me of Tamaki from Ouran High School Host Club.
skullzhead [Profile] 2013/8/4 - 21:39:55
bless yeww puma, it is Tamaki <3
Thank you for the hair tip as well!
frost_star [Profile] 2013/8/5 - 18:58:0
I didn't know who it was, even though Tamiki is one of my favorite characters of all time. Now I it it though.
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/8/5 - 20:6:30
It's like Tamaki in purple mode, which is a fantastic idea! And I can't think of anyone who has more roses floating around them than Tamaki. :3 He's my favorite character. I love that show!!! OuO
[anon]lenny_on_her_netbook 2013/8/6 - 16:27:31
Gaaah, that manga had the BEST ENDING EVER. And Tamaki is possibly the most awesome character in existence. Actually, all the characters in that manga were really great... 'specially the protag. She's the best protag in a shoujo I've read yet :P
Ahem. Excuse the fangoddessing. I really love the lineart here<3 It's so smooth and nice. Also the roses. Veeerrry nice touch XD I'd just crit the hair a bit, though. It looks clunky and messy compared to the smooth neatness of the rest of the picture.

Hungry Sheldon. Limited color picture. I like how this one turned out.
C&C please

catgirl [Profile] 2013/8/7 - 14:45:1
Good job with the color. And his enthusiastic expression is too funny. The shading on him shows the volume and is nice to look at, but I think the shell should look a little shiny, to show its different texture. (I won't nag much about color palette, but brightening the highlight on the dark part of his shell would step it up a little, too). The difference in value between him and the background works nicely, he stands out well, and it's pretty striking.
silvershadow [Profile] 2013/8/7 - 21:15:3
Cute! I like the contrast you chose for your colors. And I really love your blending here, it's so smooth! The anatomy is fabulous, as well. Sheldon reminds me of the box turtles I would always feed and play with as a kid. :) Happy days, those...
skullzhead [Profile] 2013/8/7 - 21:54:53
Really good job with the limited color palette!
docile_dragon [Profile] 2013/8/8 - 10:52:13
Thanks all :)
@catgirl Shine on the shell is a good idea. I agree if I had picked a sixth color it would be a darker grey/black to increase the contrast on the shell.
@silvershadow Yay, someone was able to recognize that Sheldon is a box turtle!

dreyacira [Profile] 2013/8/9 - 19:25:44
I really like how you do these pictures with limited colors, they always come out looking great! I think you did a fantastic job with all the shading here. I love Sheldon's cute expression.
docile_dragon [Profile] 2013/8/10 - 8:35:33
Thanks I really love doing these limited color pictures

Hey everyone! I actually had time and motivation to draw something on the oekaki, so I drew a picture of my character Seth antagonizing my other character (George). It's just so amusing and the troll level is so high.....I just think it's fun to draw characters interacting with each other in a humorous way. I'll probably be trying to do this more, and do a better job. And sorry about the shoddy-ish background. It's supposed to be a parking lot.

C&C please :D

keidarancitygirl [Profile] 2013/8/3 - 17:23:42
I love your anime-type style.
It's so funny how hard George is trying to ignore Seth. :)
skullzhead [Profile] 2013/8/4 - 20:24:9
Really cool coloring technique! Especially in the hair! The lefter-most character's hair is really eye grabbing. I personally have the hardest time doing light colored hair, so seeing this is inspiring for me.
patchy [Profile] 2013/8/5 - 19:37:39
hehehe poor George
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/8/5 - 20:9:31
@skull-thank you about the hair! It's really fun to make highlights and stuff.
I'm so terrible, treating George like this. I can imagine him thinking, "If I ignore him, he'll go away". The sad part is Seth never goes away. X3

I don't always draw people, but when I do, they look like faux-Wolverines.
My character Zanik in his human shape, which by his own admission, doesn't look that human on closer inspection. He's really a dragon with three horns, which I tried to translate into hair, but it only ended up looking like more like Wolverine's cut than I wanted. whoops.

imagamaker [Profile] 2013/8/2 - 6:25:24
I love all the wrinkles in the robe! I can never get those right myself >.<
the eyes and hair are really cool too :)
theroguemind [Profile] 2013/8/2 - 14:49:59
Thanks :)
Clothing folds aren't too bad if you keep them simple. I just make lines and U-shaped lines. I don't remember what tutorial I was looking at the other day, but it talked about keeping in mind fabric pulls from tension points. For his cloak I kept the tension points at the shoulders and then gravity pulled the fabric down towards a point at the center of his chest.

I love how you've shaped the eyes. Great portrayal of expression too!
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/8/3 - 20:5:25
Nice color contrast. I like her expression like other people said. It looks natural, and thoughtful kinda.

been reading manga so much I though I would try screen tones. I like the look of them, but the patterns make my eyes hurt.

imagamaker [Profile] 2013/7/31 - 15:40:13
this is really cool....
skullzhead [Profile] 2013/8/1 - 4:15:57
You used the tones very well here!! (Even if they do hurt your eyes.) The line art looks superb as well! I wouldn't mind seeing more!
frost_star [Profile] 2013/8/1 - 7:54:0
next time I might try using a different color.
amyd [Profile] 2013/8/1 - 15:5:48
This looks really cool. I love how you did the lines, there so smooth and perfect,
well done!

ohh man I love this, it reminds me of one of those 'party animal' shirts haha
kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/8/1 - 6:32:32

Seriously, If you're gonna stick a vampire into a story of sorts, ya gotta make sure he looks the part.
So this is Darren, one of Heather's OC's, in human form. Or as Vampire... take your pick.
Well, Hope you like it Heather.
C&C is very much appreciated.

skullzhead [Profile] 2013/7/31 - 11:22:16
Looks awesome! I love the red coat, it's really well drawn! His hands and hair are also really well done~ Nice job!
heather [Profile] 2013/7/31 - 14:52:7
I actually think this looks really good but a couple of things are missing,
he has facial hair lining his face and only one scar across his eye,
also the coat thing is neat but the striped jacket is more his speed.

I try to make vampires more modern since the story is taking place in a modern day setting and because he was a farm boy in the past I don't think he would be all fancy.
and what's with the nail polish too? and where's his necklace?

very neat concept though but I didn't realize it was him until I read the description and I didn't pay attention that his name was in the drawing at first.

on the other hand I am working on the OC collaboration and I am practicing on William at the moment and I must say i'm doing quite well, I don't have it to show right not cuz i'm still working on it but i'll show you once i'm done.
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/7/31 - 16:59:37
I rather like the jacket and pants....I kind of suck at making natural looking pants.
wolven [Profile] 2013/8/2 - 15:5:23
okay... I can honestly say that i completely forgot about the striped jacket/jumper. I had the necklace in, back at the sketch but... sometimes i miss little bits. The Scars thing was a mistake as well. I thought he had two... my bad.
The nails... (nail polish? What?) traditionally (and i'm only saying this because i was under the impression he was a vampire, who could also turn into a dragon) vampires have fangs and nails that resemble claws, which are also usually red in colour. (i might have gotten mixed up with fingertips actually but...) it seemed to work on him at the time, and i thought it might work well enough because Darren can turn into a dragon, so he's gonna need claws (given that your drawings of him in that form have claws). so yeah, i meant them to look kinda sharp.
Now! Facial hair! if he grew up as a farm boy, wouldn't it be kinda natural for him to have had facial hair? Fair enough i don't know your story (yet, though i' be interested to read it) but i would assume that he's from a not-so well off background so he probably wouldn't be able to afford copius amounts of shaving cream. it's also a man's prer...ogative...? to grow a beard. (Okay, seriously who am i kidding? i did it cuz i thought it looked good!)

I'm glad you ladies all like it to some extent!

btw heather! I'm really excited that you're giving him a shot! Even on paper, i find William's beast form quite tricky sometimes. Can't wait to see the full thing!!! :D

One of my oldest characters, Zanik.
He used to be one of those catch-all OCs with crazy super powers and tragic back stories, but in recent years I've sorted out his personality and history so he's a little more respectable.
The halo is not part of his design, but I thought it would look cool and he's a good dragon anyway. C&C would be awesome!

kestrelflight [Profile] 2013/8/1 - 6:45:0
There isn't much to critique. In fact there isn't anything! The only thing that seems sort of odd is the smoke spouting off in different directions, but I think you were going for that. I understand the concept of your favorite character having to many powers, I've had similar problems. Its like: "Wait when did you learn to fly?" Lol, Don't give in to them! Keep going with your story :D
theroguemind [Profile] 2013/8/1 - 15:7:54
Thanks kestrelflight, I get what you mean about the smoke, I got a little excited with the squiggles. I'm outlining my stories now; so far so good :)
missscythe [Profile] 2013/8/1 - 23:47:10
Ahhh love the colours here, that halo looks incredible. I love how it looks as if it's glowing - you've pulled that off really well. I love the shape of the character too, beautiful work!

Hi, I'm not dead. The oekaki just hates me a lot so I don't get the urge to draw on it much.
Needed a new icon for things, so here's me from the production of Macbeth I was just in. Set post-apocalypse, thus the tattoos.

miles [Profile] 2013/7/30 - 14:37:20
holy wow, when did you get so incredible at blending?? those skin tones are just amazing, i cant stop staring at all the colours. it's so great to see you back :3
[anon]shadowfire-logged-out 2013/7/31 - 13:0:35
Thank you so much! The show had really cool lighting so I used a lot of reference. I'm gonna try to draw on here more often.
