Re: Carrot needs to use darker values

Over a month of drawing this thing because I have art block. I hate everything. Including that they made me use blue shading.

Re: Carrot needs to use darker values

I'm learning how to draw dragons. I have no idea what I'm doing.

Re: Carrot needs to use darker values

Drawing a dragon again without any idea what I'm doing. This time it was more painful. Drawing new Pokemon without references is painful, too.

Re: Carrot needs to use darker values

How do Warframes (and limbs) work? How do Lalafellen heads work? idk
Practice is so painful

Correct! Glad I got her accurate enough that you could identify her.

Re: Carrot needs to use darker values

I was mostly referring to the fact that I know so little about XIV that I might've gotten the wrong Lalafell.

Re: Carrot needs to use darker values

Ergh, drawing has been tough. Trying to draw something in my brain (with the help of references), and it's terrible...
Someday I'll be Jofu- and Dubbal-tier artist

Re: Carrot needs to use darker values

I still kind of exist, so here's a drawing I did of my teacher. Been ages since I've done a real life drawing, it's so unfamiliar to me, and I hardly draw people without going cartoony... Guess it still looks a bit cartoony.

Was drawn on the back of a homework assignment sheet, so the quality is a bit egh.

Ssssoooooo I decided to just push the shame a bit further and draw some FAN ART of their TOTALLY OFFICIAL FURSONA AND THEY HAVE NO SAY IN THE MATTER.
However, I have no idea how to draw even a cat much less a furry cartoony thingy, and I even dared to work with colored pencils for once, so... Egh...

Re: Carrot needs to use darker values

are you using 2b pencils/or any pencils with dark graphites?


because from what i can see the lines are very thin unless those were intentional

That last picture was just with a regular 2HB pencil because I was at school and not expecting to draw, so I didn't have any pencils with me...

Though to be honest, I'm a wuss when it comes to dark values, hence the thread name.

I got new glasses today so maybe now I can see things when I attempt to draw them. Maybe. idk.

The girl who sits behind me in class is forever better at art than me, but at least I'm better in Overwatch than her. :'^) Someone shoot me please.

Re: Carrot needs to use darker values

One of the way of getting your sketches to look neat is by at least using 2B pencils no exceptions, by getting it your drawing could look nicer and scanning it won't erase some of the details. Don't forget to sharpen them too.


Also you should try to learn how to draw lines without repeating it, like i can see from the jawline and the nose (and some of your previous drawings) that you tend to do repeated stroked for a single line. Same with bolding your strokes you should start from where the original stroke starts.

Unless those were because of the scan quality and the pencil of your choice

Re: Carrot needs to use darker values

Not using darker pencils and repeatedly drawing over lines has been a big issue of mine I need to practice on. orz I hope to be able to practice more in the summer when I have no school and plenty of time/boredom to do productive things. Using darker pencils is one thing, but my hands are so shaky all the time it's hard to draw long lines, so I always draw little ones over each other... hrmm...

Then again, I hardly draw, so it could just be from lack of experience. Drawing's hard.
