How was art school not enough? Didn't learn what you expected or something different? or was it one of those 1 day courses?

Seeing a lot of the drawings on this forum I know this is no where near as good as most of the peoples work. I'm not really an artist and I actually cheated on this too so that makes it more pathetic, but I did this in photoshop.

I like this Street Fighter character, unfortunely, the Street Fighter 4 game for the 3DS is a piece of crap, it's slow as hell. It's like fighting on the moon. These characters are floating in the air when they jump, they take a long time to get back up which ruins the game even more.

Oh high school art teacher, Dont expect to learn much from these clowns. In my experience I was always better then them to begin with especially through high school. You need to commit to an actual specialised artist in the field you want to engage in.

For some reason most of the art I like comes from self taught artists. If you want to be unique you need to forget all the rules once you learn them anyway ;)

Look through Conceptart.org's forums for tutorials, especially those on anatomy. I'm pretty happy with the foundations arts skills I learned, but our profs were very hard on us (had to work extremely hard to get an A on anything). I'm not at home currently but will post a few things maybe, I still need a lot of practice myself.

Sample of a quick sketch:

AWESOME. Will have to put in a much more serious effort myself.

In your "Angel of Steel and Bone", can I ask what things influenced the face shape? It's from 1999, and I haven't seen any old manga like that.. is it an original style?? I really like the Claymore manga which it kind of resembles. But that's far too new.

Well I've started sculpting in 3d but I'm nowhere near professional level, I just have an over-active imagination haha.

Yeah, it's wholly original. My art style has evolved a lot since then and become quite different, though I still do manga-style more naturally.

I prefer to do drawings rather than sketches, but tend to do them small and leave parts incomplete. I'll outline the method I employed for the following drawing. I don't think it's typical because I made it up.

Materials - white charcoal pencil, smooth and good quality black paper, normal eraser, and quite a thick tortillon (a blending stick made of paper).



I begin anywhere. I draw a feature, say the eye area or temple, as almost complete (shading and all) before moving onto the next bit. I don't draw outlines first - the face is made up in parts and never from an outline.

Mistakes can be erased normally with the eraser. This drawing's under 14 cm high. With white charcoal you're adding the highlights rather than the shading. My brain can't distinguish between this method and the usual with dark charcoal or pencil - both are equally natural - but apparently my father couldn't switch to doing it this way so I'm wondering if that's common.

You have to think in 2D and forget what you know - forget higher order perception. This isn't a face but amorphous shapes. Notice all the subtle variations and draw them in. There are no noses, eyes or chins - that's higher order perception and no good for translating something to 2D. Drawing a hand, face, door or plant shouldn't be approached any differently - they're all the same - just amorphous 2D shapes.

Blend everything using the tortillon. If there's a particularly bright highlight I use a normal white charcoal stick because it's much whiter and bolder. It wasn't necessary for this drawing, which was pretty even in tone.

Whoa, you're really good. Are you a professional? How long do you spend on your drawings? How long did it take to get so good at it?
