Awesome Picture!

 

But where did she get the spear and shield from...?

Actually, it was done the way I've done with my Digital Art:

 

1: Draw it by hand

2: Ink it

3: Trace it and Color it in Adobe Illustrator.

 

I have tried out drawing digital more recently though. In this that I made, everything is drawn digitally in Photoshop and then colored in Illustrator.

 

But thanks for checking out my art thread! I like getting comments on my art for once! :D

 

Speaking of which, I made a compilation of my favorite art from this year:

Here's to another year of drawing things, hopefully things requested by you guys.

 

As always, Comments, Critiques, and Suggestions are always appreciated!

I just imagine all of the Errant NPCs that Wolfy has created are standing outside of the window along with the Masked Guy. :D

Out of curiosity, how many different Middle-Eastern Cultures went into that guy's armor?

 

I can see Babylonian/Assyrian and Egyptian. 

 

 




#486193 Werewolf's Writing Tidbits

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 08 December 2017 - 03:05 PM

I know that , Cappy. It's just when I saw the 'can't/doesn't want to seduce' part of your original post, and I just thought "what if Drake tried to seduce Scaevius?"

 

It wasn't supposed to be serious, and it was supposed to be funny because they hate each-other. :P




#486160 Werewolf's Writing Tidbits

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 06 December 2017 - 11:31 AM

  • Tom trips into someone important, has to charm his way out of it  Edit: Bonus points if it's someone he can't/doesn't want to seduce, but knows he shouldn't fight.  But if you want to show him putting his famous moves on, I won't complain.

 

For some reason when I read this, I had this mental image of Drake attempting to seduce Scaevius. 

 

I will gladly accept this as a belated birthday gift if you decide to toss aside your morals to write that. :D

 

But here are some more serious prompts:

  • One of your characters meets one of Scorp's, i.e. Plutarch meets Lysander.
  • Point of view story told by a minor character, for example, a peasant tells a story about meeting Drake. Or alternatively:
  • Point of view story told by a enemy, for example, a undead creature talks about his master being killed.

#486097 Dalton's Assorted Artwork and Random Stuff

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 26 November 2017 - 05:46 PM

Have you ever considered trying different methods for coloring? I assume you use colored pencils? The colors look great but they always come out very grainy/pixel-y in the scans you post. Maybe something like markers or colored ink would scan better... I'm not sure, as I usually only color things digitally.

 

Yeah, I've been trying to find an alternate version of coloring in my drawings, but for now, I'm sticking with the colored pencils.

 

Do master studies of the artists you like. It's a fancy way of saying you trying to copy their work as closely as possible. Of course this isn't for re-selling, and it's very necessary to credit the original, but this is a great way to find new methods of drawing, and thinking about drawing.

Next I'd say I'd love to see some life-studies of objects. I recommend drawing without looking at your paper. Just look at the thing/person and move your arm. I describe this as "feeling" around the shapes. It's not only great for practicing anatomy and building your reference, it will also give you art a new, clean look. Frankly it also teaches me to draw faster.

 

That's an interesting Idea! I actually have tried doing something like this with the art style of the 2003 version of the Clone Wars cartoon, but not with too much else.

 

Anyways, its time for some art!

 

First up, belated Inktober Drawings!:

#486085 The Mystery Project: Part 4 (UPDATED 12/24)

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 24 November 2017 - 08:12 AM

Awesome! 

 

I love the idea of a giant, stone creature sleeping away as stuff grows over it. Reminds me of the Stone Giants from the Hobbit.

Just out of curiosity, do you instantly get Necromancy when you make a demonic pact? Or is that a separate thing?

You bet there's something not right.

 

You somehow managed to lose some of your bandages inbetween pages. :P




#485963 moving Wicktures that you are watching

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 06 November 2017 - 12:54 PM

Here is a list of movies that I saw a while back, ranked from best to worst, before I talk about movies/tv shows that I really want to talk about:

 

Spoiler

 

So, I saw Spider Man Homecoming on my birthday and it was awesome. My only complaints about it were brought up in the Honest Trailer for it.

 

Then, we have Wonder Woman, and boy do I have a bunch of complaints about that movie:

 

Spoiler

 

Though, even after all of my nitpicking, it's still the best DCU film they've made yet.

 

Voltron: Legendary Defender has some new episodes. I checked them out, and they were okay.

 

And, I finally, I started to binge Disney's Star Wars the Clone Wars, since the last time I tried to watch all the way through it, I never got past the first season and I was twelve or something.

 

The stories are fine and all, but the art style makes me want to gouge out my eyes with a spoon. It looks like a 3d version of the Genndy Tartakkovsky Clone Wars Mini-series, which works for some characters, but it definitely doesn't work for others. Honestly just mad that their's is canon and the Genndy one isn't, even though it's much better. Maybe Disney legendised it because it didn't have enough cringy prequels dialogue.




#485941 VIDYA GAME SUPERPOLL(tm)

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 01 November 2017 - 11:47 AM

I guess I'll explain my votes as well. 

 

The preferred weapon thing depends on what situation I'm in. For example, I prefer a machine gun for most normal combat situations, a shotgun for obvious reasons, something that makes explosions because I am crap at aiming in console games, and exotic weapons if I want to do something weird.

 

I honestly love all these classes (and you can bet I'll do some sort of comic out of the poll thing), but I gotta go with paladin, because Holy Knights are the best at dealing with heretics. :D

 

I really haven't played too many games recently, so I'm probably not the best for answering this question, but I've gotta go with story. To me, a game can be incredibly immersive and have sweet gameplay, but if it doesn't have a good story to go along with it, I'm going to opt out. For example, one of my friends is recommending that I should play Shadow of War (I am somewhat interested in the game-play mechanic of mind controlling an army of enemy minions), but I am staying away at the moment because it somehow managed to rape ruin the Tolkien canon even more than the hobbit movies did.

 

Didn't vote for any God-Emperor stuff because THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE

 




#485889 Official Wulfgard Q&A Topic

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 24 October 2017 - 05:13 PM

Time to ask more questions!

 

1: How much does the Inquisiton care about the mistreatment of Magi (i.e. burning them at the stake, experimenting on, etc).

2: What is the signifigence of the gauntlets that both Kye and Scaevius have?

3: How common is it for a normal human to have one of these gauntlets? I have an idea for a Templar character who only uses that to fight people with.

4: How did North and the South react to Ildrius becoming Emperor. I assume that some of them tried to invade (i.e. take advantage of the chaos).

5: What happened to the Imperial Family when Ildrius took over? Did any of them escape being killed? Asking this because I have an idea for a custom faction...

6: Did Ildrius actually do anything good for the empire (i.e. expand boarders, driving off invaders) while he was Mage-Emperor, or was he just an insane tyrant?
