re: WF Art/Draw General Discussion Thread

You've definitely got the foundation for a jacket down. All you need to do with it now is show hints of fabric folds on the sleeves and such.

I like the skull. It does look more like a mask that a comic book villain would wear.


First Art Assignment!

To any who are interested,

Go out (anywhere) and find an inanimate object (i.e. a flower, car, street lamp, etc) and come up with 5 sketches of it. Then, once you've done that, make one final drawing as detailed as you can.

Bonus points if you can create a humanized version of that inanimate object.
For example, if you choose a flower, you can model a female's hair off of the petals.


(Art assignments will also be posted in the opening post)

re: WF Art/Draw General Discussion Thread

Calahart - and Krang and NeyNey as well - Iíve already told you that I admire your skill but again, very nice work.

I used to be an avid drawer and painter but once I discovered clay, metalworking and computer graphics at design college I fell in love with those mediums to the point that I nearly abandoned my traditional methods altogether. Sometimes I regret that and feel like I should redevelop my old artistic outlets but as soon as I pick up a sketchpad I get frustrated at the limitations of 2D and/or the lack of multimedia ability to create immersive environments (forcing the audience to experience my vision) Ė and the lack of an Undo key (Iím spoiled).

I do still love photography however, thou Iím not terribly advanced at it. Iíve come to the conclusion that I tend to gravitate to art forms that require more of a tactile sense (like clay), are part of larger whole (I studied set design for stage in university) or that rely more on visual-spatial relations than pure hand drawing skill. Plus, Iím a multimedia and graphic designer, not an artist, and thereís a real distinction between the two. My creativity has fallen victim to purpose-driven art, and Iím now more comfortable with conveying an atmosphere or selling people on a clientís image than just art for the love of it.

Anything Iíve ever used as an avatar or sig is mine Ė though, admittedly, thatís a pretty limited pool of examples. My Ďthingí is recreating a craft-like or kiddie art look on a computer screen. I can spend hours in Photoshop discovering exactly what steps produce the best imitation of crayon drawings, needlepoint on fabric, clear tape or painted wood. Iím also pretty keen on creating creepypasta-style interactive media, stuff that can make people jump when they click their way through it in the dark.

Most of my work is animated or parceled into a multimedia kind of presentation with audio and/or video but I do have a few pics that I could put here. I tossed a random bunch into a collage-type thing since I couldnít be bothered uploading more than one image. Not a Best Of compilation by any stretch, more of an Oh, thereís a bunch of stuff in a folder named Spares deal, but I included elements pretty representative of different aspects of my style.



Iíll have to poke around my external drive and cloud accounts to see what I have digitized that isnít computer original (Iíll probably never get around to this). Honestly, I havenít drawn for pleasure in ages; having to produce Ďartí (and design is not art in a pure form) on demand for university then college and then work hasnít had a positive effect on my private productivity. I thought my desire would come back as I havenít been working in design for the past few months but nope, no inspiration yet. It seems I need an outside reason to create.

I just want to keep the interest going and I feel that this could add some fun to the thread.
You should give this a try! It sounds like fun, and I initially get all enthusiastic about such things, but I wonít pretend that Iíd be one to commit to it. I keep meaning to join the gfx section competitions but I never seem to find the time or, honestly, the motivation. I used to do sigs and photoshop stuff elsewhere while I was in school but these daysÖI guess I burned out on it.

I do that too. It was actually how I was first taught in art class as a kid. They made us practice drawing our own hands realistically by copying what we saw before we were introduced to bone structure. If Iím stuck for a position, I hold my hand in front of the screen and focus on the space around my fingers so that I donít get caught up in the details (I rarely go for realism anymore Ė itís all about simplicity). And yes, I do use my own feet for visual reference too. Iíve been lucky that folks are quite forgiving of eccentricity from crazy artists in the design half of new media offices.

re: WF Art/Draw General Discussion Thread

^^^ This thread isn't just for drawings. It's for all art mediums! Even graphic design, photography, and sculpture. I loved when I took sculpture classes by the way. It's one thing to draw something on paper, but to mold something in real life with one's hands is just a whole new level of awesome. I have yet to do metal works, but I took a paper-making class once which was very interesting.

Definitely find more of your stuff and share. Make MORE stuff and share that, even! I love what you have shown so far. It's so diverse!

I have come up with my first art challenge.(See top of page) I'm going to be giving it a go as well. I hope I'm not the only one who will.

Alright, I'll get to it as soon as I get home.

re: WF Art/Draw General Discussion Thread

That's great! Take your time, though. Art should not be rushed.

Great thread btw

Edit: Speaking of wrestling related drawings, here's something I'd drawn out of boredom in college around a year and a half ago.



They look nothing like the actual wrestlers, but whatever

re: WF Art/Draw General Discussion Thread

Your version of Jin's art is super cute.
Was the kliq illustration you drew from an actual comic or was it just a really popular piece of fan art?


Also, you should give my little homework assignment a try.

re: WF Art/Draw General Discussion Thread

It was from a fan art from which was up on the Funny Wrestling Pictures thread back then.

One's enough for now I guess I might give one of your future assignments a shot though
