1 What better way to break the ice... on Fri Jul 02, 2010 7:40 am

Then posting some artwork!

A character of mine. Her name is Naoki. Kinda of a bubbly girl. Mostly based off my gf...

Is there anyway to post an image smaller then it is? or do I have to resize it?

D'AWWWW, she's adorable!

And yeah, I think you have to resize it if you want it smaller, but it looks just fine on my screen.

@ FRIST

Well...this picture is fine, but most of mine are...pretty big.

like 1240 * 1680 big...

I'll go resize them...meanwhile I post some old work.


Her name is Mel. its short for Melody cuz she didn't think Melody was a scary name for a bounty hunter.

Thanks for the thumbs up! I was actually nervous about posting but now I see its ok.



OBVIOUSLY. Kat is (c) to the great Jolly Jack, I made this as a joke like 3 days ago because someone on my Deviantart mentioned Mel looked like Kat.

Well, your work doesn't look like something to be ashamed of. I really like Sniper Cat Razz

Thanks alot, it took a while to finish since I tend to get A.D.D. while drawing. The whole process was 2 hours, but when cartoons came on, then a shiney, then more cartoons, then some sleep, and video games, and making a bunch of homopolar motors which a bunch of batteries and magnets, 4 days passed.

Did you use any reference for these 3 above strips or were they purely by the awesomegasmic powers of le Imagination!

That was pure awesome power of imagination.

but I had practiced Jolly Jack's style a couple times.

like so.



Sniper Cat in a sketchy yet remiencant style of jolly jack. References WERE used. It was one with scarlet with power tools.

Fire done with maple leaf brush in photoshop, draw fire, then smudge in the direction you drew the flames. Simple yet very effective.

Smells like Jay Naylor, rather than JJ.

But besides that, very good stuff. Keep 'em coming.

If I could draw like that I'd be happy Razz I curse my father saying art is a [bad translation of the word: moffie] gay subject. But I understand his reasoning, I'm inherently lazy, and all my art projects would be incomplete or a rush job ^-^

@Nikolai

It is so in every heart of artists.

@MicasR

I'm sorry your dad is that way. I always say though, if its a hard job, give it a a lazy person, they will find a way to make it easy. All you need to give them is time. I'm sure you'll do fine.

@Everyone

If anyone has a Deviantart Account, I will watch them if they post it.

mine is http://haventownsend.deviantart.com/

SAME LAME NAME! WHOOHOO! I'm so uncreative. Very Happy

Well, this has inspired me to retry that fox I wanted to draw. Any tips on drawing a vicious looking fox with blood eyes and drooling teeth?

My suggestion is finding a couple references of foxes, and some viscious looking animals.
Viscious wolf (possible teeth reference)
http://mangastudent.deviantart.com/art/Evil-Wolf-90103120?q=boost%3Apopular+evil+animal&qo=15
Another teeth or evil eyes reference
http://keira-blacktalon.deviantart.com/art/Good-and-Evil-73183816?q=boost%3Apopular+evil+animal&qo=8
Evil fox reference
http://hibbary.deviantart.com/art/Myth-Fox-68078590?q=boost%3Apopular+fox&qo=15

just for starters
