Drawing at work (bored)


#1

Lately work has been really slow, and I pretty much have nothing to do. So lately I’ve been drawing.

  1. I guess I was trying to draw Zappa and a summon but it turned out kind of weird, so I drew a kanji symbol in place of a ghost.

  2. Samurai Champloo fans will probably recognize this. By in my defense I was at work and did it from memory. He turned out looking rather mean, instead of the wacky/goofy look that the original had.

  3. A really crappy looking Ibuki. I was trying to draw a raccoon popping out of her backpack with a kunai in it’s mouth, but that got really miffed. I have no idea how to draw a proper raccoon. Her hands and face are really androgenous too. If it weren’t for the hair and the tiny sized feet, she could totally pass as a man in that pic. And speaking of the feet, I really half-assed it on those.

15 & 16) More Ibuki. I can’t seem to get her chin right. She looks like an older woman instead of a cute girl.

  1. This started out as a pic of Rock Howard, but I totally gave up like halfway through and just made him look like whatever. The frog came later. Random toads are the win.

Criticism and tips are welcome.

[Edit]: Oh, and I’ve never posted in this section of the forums before, so I apologize if my format is ass. Please let me know if there’s some rules and etiquette I should know about, thanks.

Long time no see man. I think you should stick non-ruled paper (the one without lines).

The elephant ones are cute

====
As for the Ibuki busts (lol, talking about the head of course) I guess

-thinner lips
-smaller nose
-slightly larger ear(s), at least for #15
-smaller chin and less defined jawline

Sprite sets or sprite sheets can be good references too.

Sup, thanks. Yeah, it’s been a while. Good to see you’re still around and still rockin Shermie.

Thanks for the suggestions, I’ll keep working on them.

About the sprites though, yeah they are a good referance, but I can’t access them at work. So I usually am going just off memory when I try to do fan art. In my head she’s a cold blooded steel magnolia ninja bitch of doom, but then I get home and I remember she’s a cute ditzy school girl.


#4

re:Ibuki

Haha, I like that comparison. I think adding a little bit of psycho ninja to her in your drawings wouldn’t hurt. :wink:


#5

Well, I screwed this one up bad. But I’ll keep working on it.

I’ll pen it tomarrow and see if I can make it look less retarded. And depending on how busy it is on Friday, I’ll bring a sharpie and work on it even more. So, in the mean time, got any suggestions? I know I need to shorten the arms and re-do the feet and hands. I think the pose in general is a little screwy, but I don’t have a model to verify. Definitely half assed the chest area and pony tail. And the leg in the background looks retarded. I’ll also be adding detail to the clothes. Or maybe I should just start a new one. :stuck_out_tongue:

I totally forgot what her jacket looked like, but I knew it looked something like Lei-Lei’s (showing mad cleavage). I’ll redo that.

Hey, didn’t know you liked the character too. ^^; I’ve a bunch of reference pics I can link to later. And yeah, feet and hands are small, but nothing practice can’t fix. :tup:

She wears a jacket and a tight skirt with a side criss-cross design. She also wears what looks like a body suit or a one-piece swimsuit with a hole by the cleavage. He boots look like a cross between wrestling boots and Star Wars ones.

Fortunately, there’s a fair bit of art depicting her as sitting down.

Want me to give a shot at the said pose? Nevermind that I’ve drawn her countless times before.


#7

Well actually, I’ve never played the game she was in. I just like the character design for some reason. Her fighting stance is really cool.

Thanks for the reference pics, the first one and third one helped a lot. I think I will start a new one since it seems I’ve butchered the last one too much. I should’ve drew out the body first, then went from there.

For some reason I thought she wore leg warmers and pumps – I pictured her in my head as being very 80’s in fashion. :stuck_out_tongue:


#8

It’s quite alright To me, a new Shermie means there’s hope for the world. ^^

And yeah, her hair really gives off an '80s vibe. A lot of SNK characters do.

  1. Yeah, she’s on the pole. Her body is really elongated. Once again I should have mapped out the body first, then went back and added detail. I hate her left hand, I feel like I haven’t been drawing hands properly lately. In general her chest and thighs look really weird.

  2. I don’t think this one looks too bad. But the foot in the background needed a longer boot, and the leg itself needed to be proportioned, the right thigh is too long.

  3. Some random doodles. I dunno. I miss the beach.

  4. I think this is from the Shin Megami Tensei series. Although I think I butchered it a bit. Wonder what it means…

  5. CHUG THAT SHIT.

  6. Random. I like the dude in the bottom right.


#10

I heart you man:lovin: I should get off my lazy ass and do some sketching again, as well.


#11

I heart you, too. <3

Woops, she’s on the pole again.

So, I took my own advice tonight and did the preliminary sketch of the proportions before adding detail. Ironically I like the proportions, but I don’t really care much for the pose – except her left arm of course, which is obviously too long. It’s also lacking a lot of detail in the skirt and jacket – it doesn’t really look like leather, and should have a lot more creases and folds. And I also somehow managed to forget to put sleeves on the jacket.

And once again her upper chest area is too elongated. That’s a reoccuring problem I have when drawing women for some reason. C’est la vie.

#12

not elongated ENOUGH


#13

Not the tits. I’m referring to the space between her breasts and neck/shoulders (or clavicle, for those who know what that is). Her shoulders are too “buff”, so to speak.


#14

…not elongated enough STILL


#15

What on earth are you talking about? Xeno’s right, either the torso/trunk is too big or the head and limbs are too small. :F


I like how you always draw her with the heart, though.


#16

SOUNDS like a PERSONAL PROBLEM :rofl:

They have pills for that, you know

He’s just messin. :stuck_out_tongue:


#17

LOL, I’m retarded.

And yet somehow these look slightly better than the originals, despite being so daft. That seriously took me like 30 seconds in PS.


#18

Work was particularly slow today. Blah.

  1. Random doodle. I probably had my mind on Persona.

  2. I’ve been pissed about the way I’ve been drawing hands on small sketches lately, so I drew this.

  3. Zappa love.


#19

#20

Sleep helps those who help themselves.

  1. I dunno what I was doing with the flame effect. I blame it on boredom.

  2. I left work before I could finish this.
