Not gonna lie. This may be your best drawing yet.

I can't find anything that bothers me.

Good job.

Whoof, I left this poor thread unused for a while... again.
But something I whipped up... at just shy of 4AM, because...
...
...
What am I doing with my life?



Well, except for that character in the middle, it looks pretty good.

Nah, kidding. It's neat! I can see some lines from mistakes your erased and fixed, but that's something that can be easily fixed in any editing program, you ever actually need to fix them. Maybe you didn't even erase them and that's why I can see them in the picture.

Considering you draw without any sketched basic shapes or skeletons to start, those kinds of things are more likely to happen with your technique. It's amazing that you skip that step and still do a great work. I don't know if you've just drawn so much that you don't need it anymore, or you just decided to skip that and learned to draw without it.

I don't know if you've just drawn so much that you don't need it anymore, or you just decided to skip that and learned to draw without it.

I've gotten to the point where I begin to draw the form of the character (still freehand), then add and remove lines as necessary. It allows me to make the anatomy a little less wonky, while still keeping to my normal style.

I never really cared much for doing sketchy basic shapes or skeletons; I basically taught myself to draw without them. Basic stuff like that, I learned to do from muscle memory after drawing it enough times.

There's also less need of guidelines for the form of a character if I have a reference to work off.
In this case, the reference materials were:
Spoiler for Hidden:





"I am the bone of my sword
 Steel is my body and fire is my blood
 I have created over a thousand blades
 Unknown to Death, Nor known to Life
 Have withstood pain to create many weapons
 Yet, those hands will never hold anything
 So as I pray, Unlimited Blade Works."

I was taught to never draw a human body without a skeleton or a base sketch first, but enough practice always makes people not need it at all. I have this one friend who uses base lines to make the head and the shoulders proportionate, but that's about it. After those, he just draws freely and he can make amazing masterpieces.

Now that you mention it, having references help a lot. I've drawn a lot of stuff in the past by having a reference (usually Dragon Ball characters) and I still struggle with proportions from time to time and spend a lot of time fixing it, but overall, the drawing ends up being almost exactly the same as the original.

For example, I was drawing SSJ2 Gohan, during the Cell fight, and Nailed the head and hair almost exactly, but when I got to the chest, stuff stopped looking proportionate. I decided to take a break and resume the drawing later... That was like 4 months ago. I even used up all the pages in that sketchbook and stored it so I could start using a new one.

So, back around September, I drew up this character on a random whim.

While I was almost immediately fond of the design, I can't say the image was quite up to snuff in the details.

Long story short, I redid the image.

While a tuft of hair makes the cheek look a little thin, and I gave them a serious case of 'Soejima Neck' (which to be fair, I was trying to match his artstyle), I'm quite proud with the outcome.

Also, an example of 'Soejima Neck.'
Spoiler for Hidden:

JAYESUS, LOOK AT THAT NECK! I swear Junpei is part giraffe.

Wow your art has really improved a lot . At least in my eyes , I don't check this thread often but this recent stuff looks really nice . At least the girl models I have seen . The body positions really seem natural and cool . Grade A stuff. And while a lot of your faces seem persona style , to me you've made it your own .

Didnt your parents tell you not to play with me? Youll get burned.

A rough design for a purse owner Persona.
The design is meant to invoke similar imagery to Persona 4's protagonist, Yu Narukami's Persona, Izanagi:
Spoiler for Hidden:

Specifically speaking, the deity summoned there is Yakami-hime, a minor figure in the story of the White Hare of Inaba, which is a part of the Susano-o legend. Since it was related to the White Hare thing, I figure the trinkets on her head that looked like rabbit ears were fitting of the character.
Yup, I did my research a lil' bit.

Drew this last night at like 2AM. Not bad for what was basically a random doodle.

Much appreciated!


Also, I put this together on a whim. Not entirely satisfied with her legs, and her right arm should have been bent a bit more, but I like how it turned out, just the same.

Got a random whim to draw this.
I'm certainly no Toriyama, but I am really proud with how this turned out.

Nah, that's fine. I don't think it harms anything.
It just kinda helps if the art is posted is all.  :derp:
