We Draw Our Characters



  • AquilAquil Posts: 269Member ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    I really get my hopes up everytime I come to this threat thinking people actually -drew- their damned characters. Someone should just make a doll maker thread, then I can actually know and feel excited whenever a real drawing comes up instead of just seeing more doll dress-ups.

    Quote box hates me. I'm not trying to belittle you or anyone that uses doll makers. But I always get my hopes up expecting a random Yae drawing, or maybe a Saeva chibi doodle or something. I just think we should make a thread for the doll makers, is all.

    Haha. I actually agree there should be a separate thread for it considering it's a draw thread. Someone should create one! I don't mind either way, though.  :)

    Gosh, the expectation, @Aquil. I should get back to drawing relatively soon, though. Just need to get RL sorted a bit before I have the time.  :o

    I was JUST thinking that I missed your pictures today.

    Too lovely.

    Oh no, not me.  I am working with zero artistic talent. ;)
    I used an avatar maker.

    So. I tried this once a while ago and this was the result:

    So I tried again, with a different sort of idea in mind. This is the result of my work today.

    I don't know. I'm not an artist. Thoughts?

    I've been 'playing' 10B wives. Very cute idle game so I am thinking about doing a series of doodles based on the wife types.

    It's Tahq, so all I can picture is American McGee's Alice.

    Um, he's kind of facing the wrong direction, but whatev. I figured that Mosr needed an update since dragon.

    My site will remain up, but will not be maintained. The repository will continue to have scripts added to it if I decide to play another game. Maybe I'll see you around in Starmourn!

    @Daklore - I had a Wacom for a bit. I couldn't get over the disconnect between tablet and screen, though. So wickedly hard for me. I just got an iPad Pro today, though, and got an Apple Pen coming in the mail...bitch better be here Tuesday like the lady said.

    @Yae - Know anyone with experience drawing on one of these? Got AstroPad so I can use my Clip Studio with it. Really looking forward to it.

    Been a long time since I got to draw for real. Excited to get some pics of Bann up.

    Well, sure, I've used Clip Studio Pro, and enjoyed it. I find it's a good combination between Photoshop and Paint Tool Sai. I also got Tahquil using Clip Studio Pro.

    Personally, I use a Wacom Intuos (3 originally, but now Intuos 5. Both more or less work the same). The disconnect between tablet and screen does take some getting used to (if I recall way back when), but it's a matter of dedicated practice. At the moment, I don't use Clip Studio Pro any more. I prefer Paint Tool Sai, but that's a Windows only program. I've been using Parallels (for Windows virtual machine) with my Macbook to deal with the issue, but it's really inconvenient.

    I have an iPad 2 or something, but I've never really enjoyed drawing on it, although it's certainly possible. I have done a few drawings on it here and there, but nothing like I would do on a computer and tablet. (I'm sure it's a matter of practice).

    @Yae does Photoshop work similarly to How CSP does? Only real catch is that I use a Mac. I had been looking at getting like a Ugee or some other kind of drawing monitor/tablet thing, but costs too much up front. Got the iPad and Apple Pen set up on payments.

    Photoshop is similar, but focuses on photo editing. Clip Studio Pro is mostly meant to draw things, like manga, so the pens/brushes are wide-ranging. I'd use CSP to draw and Photoshop to do any final effects. That said, a good artist would be able to use either (with practice) and still come out with a good end product (more or less). I'm just not really fond of Photoshop's brushes (and too lazy to learn to make custom brushes myself). I use a Mac also.

    In regards to those kind of computers, I don't really have any experience with it. I have seen a post on tumblr for cheap Cintiq alternatives here, but since I haven't really tried any out myself I can't say if I recommend any other than the much used, professional brands (I'm sure there are used ones for sale somewhere, haha). ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I'd rather see some Fantasy Novel book cover style art to the countless anime and doll regurgitations that all look the same.
