View Full Version : Sketch of boredom

Sorry for the pic not showing up earlier. I pasted the wrong url.

Yes, most of my drawings are spawned from boredom and actual free time. I haven't gotten to draw anything more than doodles on notes for months. :crylaugh: I drew something along the lines of an elf hime. I roughly inked it, and will color it with either prismacolors or watercolors. The original is very large.
comments appreciated ^_^

Its got a very elegant style... and I like the composition too. I think her proportions could be a little off though. Try sketching some real or even photos of people to get a better feel for correct proportions =)

Thank you. I knew I was going to be nailed on that one. ^_^ This picture was actually going to be a real person, but I decided to turn it into an anime character. I have problems drawing foreshortening of figures and proportions when I don't have an aid. I will fix the drawing further more and re-post it. I want to get the darn proportions down. For some odd reason I had it stuck in my mind that I wasn't supposed to copy pictures of people. I will go do that too.

Foreshortening is very very tricky!! It's all in the shading... and its hard to get the hang of! Try practicing more head-on poses first =) You definitely have a lot of potential with your attention to detail.

I like your style of drawing. It IS elegant and I can't wait to see the revised drawing.
