30 Day Drawing Challenge [Closed] [Critique Welcome]

#1 Post by Duskylli » Fri Apr 25, 2014 2:25 am

I get sidetracked really easily, so I've decided to draw something everyday for the next 30 days to improve my art. I hope to improve on colouring, poses and anatomy...pretty much everything xD. Usually I just draw a headshot facing forward so I'm trying to break away from that.

To get started I'll take some requests. Just drop a link/picture of a character here. Just be wary that my style changes frequently and they might end up with a mushroom with top hat and moustache or something... Requests closed for now.

Oh and if anyone has any cool tutorials for me to try drop me a link. I welcome honest critique too. Thanks :3

To Do List:
1. Chocojax- Claire- The Witching Hour [DONE]
2. Googaboga- Some Chick- FI Interview [DONE]
3. JumpJump- OC from Fix [WIP]
4. SuperRoo- Nakiami of Xam'd
5. Coren- OC from Crimson Ralfessia/Mica
6. SimonLayton- OC from An Act of Defiance
7. supershighi- Link from LoZ

Yaaay, good luck, man! I'll try to cheer you on (and give you advice) as often as I can, haha.

As a quick warm-up request, could you draw a cockatoo for me? Any cockatoo is fine! :lol: (Or if you'd rather stick with a human bean, could you draw a character from here?)

http://human-proportions.tumblr.com/ - I find this tumblr to be fairly helpful. While it doesn't have any tutorials, seeing how other people sketch out and work on drawing figures helps me find new ways to think about drawing.

Ok here is a little something for today. I don't think I'll be able to do 30 complete drawings for each day because...well drawing is hard xD In particular drawing breasts (I should look up a tutorial) and clothing (folds, how they fall/move). When I added folds I think it made the back foreshortened leg look weird. I hope to line and colour this tomorrow. If anyone has any critique I'll catch it when I wake up.

@chocojax- haha its tempting to draw a cockatoo :3 But yeah I'm trying to learn human anatomy and such at the moment. Oh thanks for the blog, its a bit dangerous I could flick through it for hours. I tried out the ribcage stick thing when I was drawing the base, it helped a lot with proportions.

@Googaboga- thanks for your support! Sure thing.

@JumpJump- xD How old is this character? And do you know what the colours are going to be.

He is his mid to late 20's. He is supposed to be an important character, But I have drawn little of him.

Anyway..
I hope this picture can help you.
Colour.jpg
The sword is made of brass and wood, the crown, shoulder pads and "belt" are brass with some emerald. His shoulder pad are half cogs.

If you want, here is a better look at the sword. This a first sketch of it.

@JumpJump- Ooh I like this design! :D Looks like it'll be fun to draw. He's not from 'Dead City' is he?

@Coren- Yes, no problem! Just so you know I have another request before you so you'll be the 5th.

Ok Chocojax's request is done. I think the eyes look better without pupils. Or maybe my perspective is off with the right eye...

Are there still available slots in your thirty slots? :D You wouldn't mind drawing her or him, whoever you choose? :3 By the way, love your take on Chocojax's request. :D

Waaaaaaaaaah, looks so awesome!! I love it! (And, if you don't mind, could I put it up on the thread!?)

Also, the problem with the pupil might've been because it wasn't dark enough?

He is from a different story called "Fix". He's not one of the good guys.

@ SimonLayton- Thanks! Yeah 30 requests is not going to happen. I'd like to break up the requests with tutorial experiments and other stuff. I'll be happy to do your character though.

@Chocojax- Sure you can post it. Possibly, I just feel like when I coloured the eye it shifted position. But maybe I've just been staring at it for a while and things started to go weird...

@Googaboga- Thanks for the feedback! Maybe its just me then xD

@JumpJump- Cool I'll keep that in mind
