Hello, I am new to the boards! This is my first picture(hooray!). I hope you like this. I think it is pretty good for a first, and that I did it with a mouse. Criticism is always welcome, I want to get better. Thanks!

pumadragon [Profile] 2013/3/25 - 17:11:11
Hello, and greetings! If I may ask, what did you use for the shading?
geckodragon [Profile] 2013/3/25 - 18:0:22
Hey! welcome to NDA! I hope you enjoy your time here! This is very good for a first! i really like the glow of the sun, and the dragon's horn! I might suggest going around the outside with the eraser to erase all the color outside the lines, it gives it a more, how do I say this, finished? look. At least, that's what I do. I can't wait to see more art from you! =D

Hey, welcome to the boards! :D This dragon looks pretty cool, I love the design and the way you made it look windy. It has a cool feel to it. :)
dreyacira [Profile] 2013/3/25 - 19:47:13
Welcome to the boards! Hope you have fun here. I like your dragon's design, especially the whiskers and those cool horns. My suggestions would be to do the outline in pen or watercolor instead of pencil, because it tends to look softer and neater. I think it will mix better with your paintery coloring.

Hi :D I'd say for a mouse pic, this came out looking really good. My mouse pics are just scribbles, lol. My suggestion would be to use the bezier tool to draw the lines. It makes things SO much easier and you can get quick, clean lines. Overall, nice pic and design :3
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/3/26 - 4:33:19
HI! Wellcome to the boards!!!!
dragonkwest [Profile] 2013/3/26 - 8:36:57
Thank you so much! I used airbrush to shade, if that answers your question. I didn't really try too hard on this, to be honest with you I was trying to figure out what half the buttons did on that paint program....I never used it before. It makes me so proud to be on these boards, I had followed this website for a really long time but it was just yesterday that I made an account. Thanks for the welcome!
starwarsdragon [Profile] 2013/3/26 - 11:48:24
Welcome to the boards! This is really good for a first-time picture, especially with a mouse! I know how hard it can be to draw with a mouse sometimes. I have to say, that eye is probably my favorite part of the entire picture. It just pops out at me every time I look at this.
Once again, good job! Welcome aboard, I hope you enjoy your stay here. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing more of your artwork around!
miles [Profile] 2013/3/30 - 1:45:49
hey there! welcome to the boards =w=
i really love the shape of this guy's snout, it looks amazing! and really brilliant for a first try, too. great work, i look forward to seeing more from you.

well, rook, judging by the fact that your clothes and your surroundings are splattered with blood and there's blood on your teeth and claws, i'd say you became ram and went on a killing spree

i actually really like how this turned out?? especially the spattering in the bg

missscythe [Profile] 2013/3/25 - 0:4:40
I LOVE the shading on this! It looks so amazing! :3 And I agree that you should indeed be proud of the blood splatters!
neduls [Profile] 2013/3/25 - 0:59:26
This is lovely! Sometimes I wish NDA had a like button. u.u I loove it and my first reaction was to hit like!
skullzhead [Profile] 2013/3/25 - 12:33:45
This looks really awesome. That's a need shading and highlighting style you used on the character.
And ohmygerd, all that blood! How many people you kill!? XD I really want to know..
tayuyaxn [Profile] 2013/3/25 - 13:25:2
I like the wide-opened eye and his pose - he looks like he just slumped there, but is still on an adrenaline high, teeth clenched aggressively.
Skullz > By the amount of blood, I'd say it looks like he killed two or three - because he seems like a messy killer. But only kenderkat know (or even then, maybe only the character does).
kenderkat [Profile] 2013/3/25 - 17:52:54
thanks, all. uwu
skullz+tayu; you'd be surprised how much space a pint of blood can cover. ((I)w(I))
but yes he is a very messy killer. he's highly schizophrenic and his other personality, who he calls ram, is basically a big furry ball of pent-up rage and adrenaline. uwu luckily ram doesn't show up very often.
tayuyaxn [Profile] 2013/3/25 - 19:59:28
Kender > I'm aware how much space blood can take. ;) I meant it couldn't be more than two or three. I guess one works too, very messily - but you said ''went on a killing spree''. I assumed the alter killed savagely (got spattered), moved on, and killed again. So the main personality is schizophrenic, plus he has Dissociative Identity Disorder which gives him one alter as his anger outlet. Fun times.
kenderkat [Profile] 2013/3/25 - 20:37:51
it's entirely possible he killed several people, but it's equally possible it was one. he can be ram for anywhere from a few minutes to a couple of days, depending on stress levels and how long it's been since ram last appeared. he tends to linger on kills, ripping the carcass apart and sometimes eating bits (he is a dog, after all--mine seems guilty if she kills a bird without eating it, it might be a subconscious attempt to justify it), but he might just kill quickly and only get a little blood on himself from each kill.
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/3/26 - 12:12:24
This...this is so....thisissocrazilymorbidbutIloveittopeices XD
Reallyreallycool! The blood is amazing, and I love how you used the pencil tool :D

Meeerrppp... For an art trade with someone on deviantart. :)
If anyone can tell who this is, I'd be insanely happy. I'm afraid he won't be recognizable. This is not my usual style at all, but I figured I'd practice. /0\
I spent a while on this.

[anon]name 2013/3/24 - 9:52:37
is this.. Russia by any chance? I like the sketchiness of the lines. Very well done!
skullzhead [Profile] 2013/3/24 - 11:25:12
;W; You got it, yeay! Russia from Hetalia.
[anon]name 2013/3/24 - 11:34:18
yay! I love Hetalia, and i love the way you drew him!
missscythe [Profile] 2013/3/25 - 0:6:59
Aw I haven't seen Hetalia yet :(((( It's on my (longgg) list of planned to watch though! :3
This looks great m'dear, I especially like what you've done with the eyes n~n
miles [Profile] 2013/3/30 - 1:49:9
ahhh i thought it was hetalia :^) you did a great job. i like that sunflower and the colouring in his eyes especially.
perhaps the lines could be a bit cleaner though for a more finished look?

Okay, I know I worked on this for a good hour, (timer is off) so I hope it can stay in Wings.........
My fox furry; Naoko, part taking in my own favorite pastime.
Drinking soda and watching good movies. (In this case, she's watching Donnie Darko, but you can't tell from this point of view...)
I hope you like. Comments are muchly appreciated.

This is really pretty, I love the shape of the head and the tail. You did a nice job with the black and white.
miles [Profile] 2013/3/30 - 1:48:23

I agree! Very nice shading! *pets* so nice!
moo492 [Profile] 2013/3/23 - 18:4:20
How do you get so much detail into your shading? I agree with what was said above, it is to die for!!
skullzhead [Profile] 2013/3/23 - 21:0:10
Merrr, the shading and the anatomy are very amazing! <3
prysm [Profile] 2013/3/24 - 11:3:22

Actually didn't take me half that long. At least I can still draw with this thing though, after difficulties with new software.

For some reason I can't resist the idea of getting my little suit demon a pair of shades. The style level has reached over 9000! XD

[anon]cakelover_alysha 2013/3/22 - 17:26:26
ME GUSTA. Oh yeah! Coolness level: 99999999999 + 1
[anon]miles 2013/3/23 - 5:33:35
that shading looks like he's in a really dimly lit area, it's a nice touch :^) also it's great to see you again!
[anon]cakelover_alysha 2013/3/23 - 17:54:1
Yes i agree with miles! ^_^ he kinda looks like one of those one color drawings lemmyloop does. Awesome!
pumadragon [Profile] 2013/3/25 - 21:58:39
Glad ya missed me. :)
wolven [Profile] 2013/3/26 - 4:8:10
I always knew he would return... but i did not expect to see him with shades.
yeah, the coolness rating of this guy just zoomed up well over 900.

i don't care what ironic crap coolkid says this is still one of my favorite lines
also ginger dave

[anon]miles 2013/3/23 - 5:35:19
i agree, it is a pretty cool quote :^) i like genuine dave much better than coolkid dave.
also your composition is SO AMAZING
i really love the word placement. you are brilliant at this sort of thing especially, and it always is so awesome to see it. you would be incredible at poster design, i think.
kenderkat [Profile] 2013/3/23 - 12:24:54
i like how he just starts talking and everyone thinks it's so deep but he's actually talking about apple juice
he's just so precious
i really like typography?? like i love words and i love art so why not both
mimzie [Profile] 2013/3/24 - 12:50:39
Gonna have to second miles; the word placement is super neat, like whoa. I'm a sucker for Striders too and then ginger Dave is just precious -u- Wonderful job :>

This is just a quick reminder that my contest ends March 31st, which means there are 10 days left (I can't believe how fast that went by).

My plant I used in this drawing was a Rafflesia arnoldii.

imagamaker [Profile] 2013/3/22 - 4:11:10
Oh man, this is really cool! The impish guy is awesome, you draw flowers so well :)
[anon]miles 2013/3/23 - 5:35:59
asdfhh i hope i can submit something by then!
i agree, this is very awesome. your portrayal of plants is always so amazing to see.

dying the coloUr of my emerald skin

call for me
i don't particularly care for callie--i like her a bit, i don't trust her at all--but i can relate to her sometimes
also this song
i cry every time asdsdgg

on another note
i talked to my dad about everything and he was really supportive uwu
haven't brought it up with my mom
not going to with anyone else in my family, they already despise me for my lack of religious belief

[anon]miles 2013/3/21 - 3:40:22
yes this song is really great
totalspiffage has such a lovely voice.
i actually really really like callie, she's becoming a fast favourite.

i really love how you drew her here. she looks so awesome in your style and i love how you've done the rubbing effect on her facepaint.
also great! glad your dad took it well. hopefully he can prepare your mum.

Doze eyes!
floodcontrol [Profile] 2013/3/20 - 19:33:37
I like the way you shaded the perch. It really pops out. Combine that with the posture of the owl and it really gives this illustration some dimension.
abicat [Profile] 2013/3/22 - 9:40:24
Thanks guys :) Looking at it now, it would of been better if I could of put more deffinition in the shading of it but ah well lol :)
[anon]miles 2013/3/23 - 5:36:54
haha how cute :^) i like how imploring that expression is.
you're right though, more shading + definition would have really improved the picture =w=

Second place contest prize for Tayu! His character Excidium. I couldn't resist the chance to draw wings and a tail.

dreyacira [Profile] 2013/3/19 - 19:8:48
Oh man he looks so dang awesome in your style. I love the way you did the texture on his wings and tail. His hair is so pretty...That smile is just so arrogant. It's great.
imagamaker [Profile] 2013/3/20 - 14:28:26
That expression is awesome!
[anon]miles 2013/3/23 - 5:39:41

OK,this took FOREVER!
I had to try out something different for a change,so I decided to draw with Painter Doodle. WRONG CHOICE
Not only is it hardly beyond anything,it's suppor annoying as well. I am so glad this is finished.
Was going to be a sketch,but turned out to be something else. Oh and fyi, in Painter Doodle you can't save anything so I HAD to finish it. Ugh is all I have to say.

C&C if you'd like,not sure if this should go in Wings or Hoards so Mods you guys can choose. Thanks,have a nice day.

bonbon [Profile] 2013/3/19 - 14:39:6
