must be months now since I last updated. So I thought it time to create a new topic.
To be honest, I haven't drawn much at all - only a few pics, which I will slowly get uploaded here.

So to get things started, here's a pic I drew at 2am this morning. I was watching a music video show (not something I normally do, but some are pretty cool) and one particular shot got my mind going. I forget the song and artist, but one of the group members (or an actress) was standing still in front of a mirror. Suddenly pulling the mic to their mouth and letting out a scream, a wind from behind blew forward. It conjured up a pretty powerful in my mind. So with a quick snap with my webcam with myself as the model, this is the pose I came up with.
I want to CG it sometime, but not sure how yet.
Well, enjoy.

More pics to come soon. I seem to be really inspired by music lately, as a few other pics I created based on the title of a Pillows song.

xD That's awesome, Dan.

For some reason, I love the shoes the most. o.o But the entire structure of the figure is amazing.

I'm loving the converse, very nice touch. Something about the shoulder/sleeve of the arm on the left looks a little weird to me, but its probably just me.
Looking forward to seeing it CG'd though, nice work.

mm, will try to fix that up when I get 'round to CGing it. There's supposed to be a strong wind coming from behind - so I'll see what I can do.

Thanks for the comments everyone! More art should be uploaded pretty soon.

Very nice! Claps for you, I wish i could draw that good, but that requires practice... A lot of it! If you think of the music video, let me know the name of it. It sounds interesting.

That is way better then me. I am so far from doing stuff like that. It looks like a rough sketch due to the excessive stray-lines, but still better then me. I love the pose it looks funny

...and drawing way better pictures than me. Insert Pep's pout-age here. It's really good, I'd ask you to colour it, but I won't expect it (not an insult but from a me perspective, I hate colouring my work) xD. It so would've been cooler if that was Billy Idol, but that's just a Peps thinking Billy Idol is cool moment. wink.gif

I love it, danbah! You're perspective on stuff is great! However, It may just be late-night madness, but his right thigh looks a bit long. I don't know, though.

I think that's because the left leg has a weird perspective from the viewpoint, and it makes the right look longer then it actually is, but yeah it looks a bit strange... I posted for the first time in like half a year ohmy.gif

hmm, maybe it is. Problem is, I deleted the photo reference I took of myself (yeah, I did that pose tongue.gif) That could mean that maybe my legs are off....

I'm halfway through CGing it now, so I can't really fix it. Well, I could, but it would be too much work.

Thanks all! Will try to get it completed and uploaded sometime soon. First, I need to chat with Kan since my demo of mangastudio expired, so I can't export it into anything else to continue working on it.

o.o Yesh!

-salutes-

I'll try to catch you on MSN on your Saturday night, my Friday morning.

And I do remember that you wanted me to convert something. I'll be glad to. =D

Off proportion= more interesting & more artistic.

OK, back again with more art. Unfortunately, I don't get time anymore to draw as much as I used to, and I rarely feel like drawing these days, even though I still enjoy it.

Anyway, a couple of new pics for you all. This is a character I've created based on a Pillows song, Lofi Boy Fighter Girl. For the moment, he'll just be called Lofi Boy.

I deliberately threw facial proportions out the window to really stylise his face the way I wanted. He's supposed to have a really 'relaxed' look, as if nothing in the world bothers him - much like me, minus the look tongue.gif

I really like the style of this, but his profile is very tough to capture since the proportions and eyes are so wacky. I need to bring the forehead out further to balance things out. I've got a few other sketches of this guy, which I might add another day. These were both drawn on A3.

oh, one more thing. You might notice a resemblance to the character currently in the KAF banner (my entry for the Anniversary contest wink.gif) which I will also post below for future reference. He's basically the same, but without his headphones, and a slightly more lively smile.

Very nice profiling dan! In your first however, the shoulders aren't wide enough for the head... And something about the eyes bothers me in the second picture. But as always, great work! smile.gif

yeah, things like that only become apparent when viewing it like this. In other art, his shoulders are quite narrow. I estimate him to be around 12 or 13. They eyes are freakin hard on the profile, as I can't really use anything as a reference. The outline of the eyes front-on has changed several times since the first sketches, and this is a more detailed version. I'll have to develop him a lot more still.

And that was a FAAAST post you did. I changed the topic title, and noticed you'd posted. Thanks for the comments!
