    Depth of field...hmm, yeah. I tried drawing Siorc sitting on a swing attached to a tree to draw more scenes that are "zoomed out" and what have you, but I still need to work on scenery. I have to post my new drawings in my art thread, though, so I'll probably have to come back and link that later.

    I definitely struggle with focal point still in terms of drawing tings that look like they're from a distance/different angle.

    Yeah, that's the word I was looking for... perspective.

    Probably going to draw hair that way from now on. Other perspective things I need to learn is draw distance, but I think that's for digital art or games... but I think object space is something I really need to learn, honestly in the future so I can draw more scenes.

    Interestingly, one of my ocs is named draw distance in Danish (Tegne Afstand)

    Wrapping it as in... Well.
    Okay, let me explain it better.

    Not drawing the entire hair & leaving a space empty where the body is so you can't see the hair underneath their body, but beside it.

    Because I would often draw too much hair & you could see all the parts that you normally shouldn't be able to see.

    Sorry, maybe "wrap" was a random word.

    Yeah, I'd much rather draw what I'm interested in. I think I finally pulled of a realistic hand today, I think.

    I definitely want to work on wrapping hair so it doesn't show up behind the back, but I finally figured out how to do that and it's to draw less hair behind the back... because when I draw long hair I always draw the whole thing there's a "you can see the hair peering behind the back" (when you should only be able to see parts of it) kinda thing...aha.

    I definitely don't want to draw food, I'll tell you that. I want to improve spacial stuff (sitting on/standing on/holding things) above all. I drew a couch today and my oc laying on it with his switch, and that's a start, but I think I put it down too low.

    If I were to draw food, it'd definitely not be the generic usuals. But, maybe I'll still try like... holding ice cream, or something.

    Yeah, definitely. Maybe I could practice by drawing a bowl of fruit like they do in the tv shows, but I don't paint anymore.

    A lot of things take practice to draw. When I draw holding things I tend to draw the obstacle in place of where clothes would be then draw around it.

    Which has mixed results. x_x

    Palamon
    Yeah. Definitely. Originally, I only really just put hands beside my characters, but now I'm trying some...new things?

    I drew Siorc meditating today, so his hands are on his...waist? (slay, queen #/enbywithattitude) (I think that link should be visible now, I changed the color) and have been practicing trying to have my characters holding things, too.

    As well as practicing finger length. But that one isn't always easy since I forget half the time once i draw hands.

    I never get hands right, but I'm trying. It's a process.

    Yeah, figured it wouldn't be easy to spot at a glance. I really need to change the color of urls.
  10. Palamon
    3 Weeks Ago 9:47 PM
    Palamon
    Yeah, nothing comes from thin air, and I always try to link/show what I referenced.

    I'm trying to work getting better at hands and that takes many references. I'm still honestly failing at getting hands to look good.

    Yeah, 54 is...a ton. I didn't think I'd do well with the smaller characters that are children. To be fair, I have very few ocs <16 Only four, and most of them are extremely minor characters.

    Well, Siorc's story started at around the time he was...11, but he ages throughout the story into adulthood, but that's a different thing altogether.

    I hope the url shows up in this message, I don't remember what color I set links to on my profile style.

    I've heard tracing is considered bad. So, I probably won't trace. But, I've heard heavily referencing is also frowned upon. But, I can't imagine things and have them appear in my head, so I have to use references to draw all the time.

    If I switch to digital art, I'd use predefined shapes only for the head since I draw a semi circle that's not always perfect.

    Also, I finished drawing all my ocs. All 54 (except the oc in laws not allowed in the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse) < the parents of the ocs. I have to update my drawings thread once again with over twenty new pieces in less than a week.

    Heya! I just wanted to follow up since you expressed interest in the interest check for the Epic Fantasy Ultra-Space Pokemon RP I proposed. I just finished creating the OOC sign-ups for it! Hopefully the final form is just as interesting. ^^

    Ah, shadows... something I definitely can't do with physical drawing unless I learn. But, right now, my primary focus is drawing all of my ocs, not so much all those extra details like shadow, and etc.

    I'm almost done finishing out my other ocs, I have 8 left of my current 54.
    When in doubt, maybe I could use pre made shapes but that's...probably considered "cheating" But I'd probably only do that for the head if I were to and draw the rest...

    I can't afford a drawing tablet, though, so for now, it's not up on the list, anyway.

    It definitely is harder the lower you go on the body. I probably can't draw breasts, yet, but I suppose I'm not going to anyway since my ocs are all covered up in clothing, anyway. I also can't really draw complicated shoes, so I have to do basic.

    Color fill tools are helpful, but sometimes, it'll fill in the entire background if it's too big of an unclosed line, which is what I worry about in the event I do switch to digital someday, but maybe once I can learn to adapt, I won't have to worry about it.
