Subject title: Zegno

Hello people.

I wasn't sure where to post this but I guess here should be fine. Maybe.
I do draw from time to time but I've never been invested in this.
The thing is that recently, I've been drawing a bit more and I wanted to be better at it.
And so I'm comming here for mostly 2 reasons.
First, I'm looking for people who can give me some tips and help me improve. and the other is that sharing what I do may motivate me to keep going. Or at least I hope so.

I'm not aiming for professional, I've never studied anything related to art and I didn't draw much in my life. That's why my level is really low and I don't have many things to show yet.

I'm still sharing this, that's why I posted in "sketchbook" after all.

I only draw from imagination but I was thinking that drawing with reference may be usefull it I wanted to get better. I'll probably be doing a bit of this.

I did this recently. And I'm struggling on legs and feet a lot.
I have no idea how to do this. :..(

I like it. I think the lower legs and feet could use just a little bit more size. But it's good. :) I like the eyes and ears.

This is my third or fourth time touching colours. I was kinda lost. I didn't really know how to approach this.
I obviously have a lot of things to figure out left. :x

By the way, thanks for your comments. ^^

Mmmm I like that last one, Zegno
She is a very cute concept, and you did really well on the hands
I would say, if you were to work on anything, the large volume of her hair makes her face seem smaller in comparison, so maybe trim that down closer to the shape of her head
Also I notice these two bumps on her legs that I can't tell what they are, and they don't make much anatomical sense. Just removing them and having the leg as a stump is more than fine, the upper leg has very oblique musculature that isn't really more than a cylinder for people who aren't super buff.
Last thing, maybe tilt her pelvis stage right a bit? Her tail is connected (I'm assuming) to her sacrum in the back of her pelvis, so her tugging at it should tilt her waist in the direction of her tail a bit

Otherwise nice job!

Thanks for the comments.
I never studied anatomy so that's why those things are looking odd, maybe I should do some studies. :o
For the thighs, I thought they should be a bit rounded because they are squished against the calves. Maybe. ^^

I started this drawing, but I'm so disgusted by the hands and feet I did that I'm going for a new one, giving up on this one. ><

I took the time to start a new drawing today, yay!

I'm not happy with the legs at all, I'm trying to correct them.

I think I will be coloring this one later on.

Edit: sorry I deleted the pic by mistake. I put it back but it's not exactly the same anymore. :oops:

I only did the character but I still struggled soooo much.

Looks good! :D I'd draw the hand on the right a little smaller, though, and I'd also practise some foreshortening (the foot looks too big in comparison with the rest of her body). Sycra uploaded a while back a video about that, here's the link in case you wanna check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJWLaDSNBAI

Hope it helps! ^^

I like the dynamic poses in your sketches keep going
3. Semester now specialise on your strenght... but on what if there are so many? I guess it´s illustration for now.

sorry for taking so long to get back to you with this! i really wanted to try and do a good job of trying to help out so it took me a little while (on top of doing other things) but here it is! so without further ado, lets get started!

so first off i guess i numbered what i wanted to talk about cause i didnt wanna worry about squeezing tons of tiny words into the canvas, so theres numbers 1 through 5 on there

starting with number 1, i noticed some problems with the head were that the proportions needed some work, so i tried to show that even in exaggerated styles influenced by anime or manga and stuff still should have a pretty good sense of propotions - that being the head can kinda be broken into 4 equal parts: the hair, the forehead, the eyebrows and eyes, then the nose, mouth and chin. that circle you see on the side of the head is like the side plane on your skull, the part thats flatter than the rest of your face and head. its kind of hard for me to explain (since im really bad with words) but its pretty easy to remember how to draw these proportions if you watch this video a couple of times!:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EPNYWeEf1U

its a video by stan prokopenko, and even though the anatomy in that video doesn't apply perfectly to your style, the proportions can be exactly the same! the most important thing to keep in mind is that the distance between the chin and the bottom of the nose should be just the same as the distance between the bottom of the nose and the eyebrows, and then the eyebrows to the hairline - where hair starts to grow.

for number 2, i was just trying to point out that it looked like you missed drawing part of this girl's torso. keep in mind that you cant make the waist toooo small, or she will look a little bit weird. i think it probably could work though, but with her tail covering that part up it does look a little bit awkward

on number 3 i was showing that the elbow was a little bit off as well. the elbow is made by the humerus meeting up with the radius and ulna bones in the arm, so its a bump that is made directly where two lines would cross, in this case that spot is where the bones are join together ^^ i also kind of exaggerated the pointiness a little bit because typically thinner girls will have a bonier elbow, since there is basically no padding under the skin there to make it softer or round, but this is not always the case!

number 4 is kind of about perspective more than anatomy. i think the anatomy on the legs was done really well! but if you keep in mind the overall perspective used in this picture, i think more of her leg should be showing as it is underneath her, but since all of her weight looks to be on her legs, they would get pushed out to the sides a little bit more, so more of it should be seen

lastly number 5 is more about anatomy again - to me, it seemed like there was just a little bit of mass missing there. keep in mind the width of the hips and you shouldn't have a problem! remember that for girls, their hips are more often than not slightly wide than their shoulders.

i think thats it, so i hope i was able to help! i'm sorry if i underestimate your skills or your knowledge, but hopefully theres at least something i was able to help teach you! forgive my bad drawings too, since i am far from the best artist out there i'm sure there are lots and lots and lots of mistakes in my drawing too! but overall i thought your drawing was really cute, and really well done too! i thought you were especially good at drawing her ears and tail (something i clearly failed at!) and drawing the pleated skirt as well. It really looks like it has weight! good job <3 :mrgreen: thank you for letting me do this!

Hello people, been ages,

First, I thank you jachuu for your comment, even if I'm really late.
I know my anatomy knowledge is lacking since I never studied any of it, haha.

I never really took time to draw since the last time I posted there. But some short holidays just started for me and I'm starting to draw a bit again.

Here are my last works.

Hope you like it, and sorry again for being inexistant for this long.
