Hey guys, so...i finally finished this Pohatu drawing i've been working on in the week. Anyways, i took all of your advices and I INKED IT! And i gotta say, i really thank you for the advice of inking it with black pen, it was REALLY fun to ink the drawing, like i mean it really was fun, plus it turns out much much neater than others. I started to change the parts a little, not really making my own style of drawing it yet, but starting to form ideas of drawing bionicles my own style, so i kinda got rid of the holes in their legs and stuff and made them just solid really. I also used gimp to make the lines and overall image darker, since the scanner turned it out a bit bright, but still it showed up much better in the scanner than it does with pencil drawings, i think im gonna ink all of my drawing now. :)Anyways, here it is, much neater than my previous two.I'm also thinking of using GIMP to color the picture later on, when i get in the mood to do it, i'll post that here whenever i get to it.So, i hope you like it, still i think im having trouble with perspective and shading, those are like my two main weak points in art. But i'll soon hopefully master those. So leave your comments below, and tell me what you like and what you think i need to improve on.Edit:Thanks, the arms are a bit too small if i look at it now. :/ But yeah, i think i should've done better on the terrain a bit, like the sand texture doesn't seem very detailic compated to the road, and I don't really know how to draw detailic clouds either, but still, I impressed myself with how clean this came up because i inked it. @Akuna of Stones, yes, the Rocky name "Pohatu" was intentional.
Woot! Its done! This thing took me four days to make, and i pretty much put my heart and soul into it.So, ladies and gentlemen, i give you: Hydraxon and Spinax- Before the pit!I think its a rather big file, so ima link it.http://www.brickshel..._and_spinax.jpgMade completely with ArtLine pens (5mm, 3mm, 1mm) pencils and paper. (no duh)This was mainly a test for shading with pens, and since i liked it, i thought i might share it. :sigh:See here, a brief (yeah right) summary of how i did it:1. First i drew Spinax's position, along with the basic skeleton, and i must say i'm rather fond of it.2. After that, i started working on it's head. Though you cant see it now, it used to look a lot more like spinax's head in the set. Oh, and it was about 3 times the sise it is now. Other than that, there's not much difference.3.Then came the rest. I considered giving him spines, but then i decided that they could just serve as yet another mutation that came along with descending into the black waters of the pit.On the whole, i took a rather simple approach to Spinax, and i think that helped the "organic" feel along.For Hydraxon, however, i took a completely different approach. Instead of drawing all the detail at the end, i did what most would "elementary school style": First the head in full detail, then the bady, also in full detail, and so on. In retrospect, i get the feeling he looks more mechanical, wich is good.It just adds that extra contrast between the two characters. (in retrospect, you said brief, wich just adds that extra contrast between what you say, and what is reality.)In the end, i coloured in their eyes, for extra drama.Credit to Taka Nuvia, for suggesting inking. Without her, i would be completely stuck, without inspiration. Check her out, she makes great art! :happydance:C&C appreciated-DwannyP.S. just so i dont get bombarded with posts that all say the same, i KNOW Hydraxon's head is kinda blurry, and i KNOW it looks like he has a walrus mustache. Thank you.
Hi guys,I thought i might try a different style for a change, so here goes:Dwanny Nuva: Wears the kanohi Arte (pronounced Art - Ay), the mask of dream realisation. He also wields a Pensul, a mighty weapon used for concentrating his power.First i thought i might do a toa drawing test, then it turned into a coloring test, and then it (d)evolved into this. :PThe main reason i inked it is because of the irony of a toa wielding a pencil, and so i decided to give it a rather cartoony look.Dwanny's Tips:To give something a cartoony look, try using smooth, curvy lines. Inking them also helps the "cartoon effect" along. Also, try using bright, bold colours.P.S. the colours didnt come out very well, i know. I think my scanner hates me.Criticism appreciated,-Dwanny
Hi guys, i've been doing some inking practice lately, and i thought i might share one of the scribbles i've been creating.And so here yuh have it: LINKAll this was painstakingly created with ArtLine pens, (0.1 mm, 0.2 mm, 0.5 mm) green colour pencils and a ruler.It started out as a test to see what i could do with pens, but it ended up as a test to see how long i could keep doing he same thing for ever without giving up. It was really hard. REALLY hard.But anyway, i'm rather pleased with the result.The not very visible pencil lines add a rather nice effect, if i dont say so myself. http://www.bzpower.com/board/public/style_emoticons/default/sarcastic.gif I just drew the outlines of a matoran, chose a spot inside of his body, (wich is still visible, btw.) and then drew lines all coming out of that point with a ruler. This is a technique i do NOT intend use in the future.If you try it yourself yo'ull understand why.anyway, i hope you guys like it!C&C appreciated,-DwannyOops, sorry, i posted this topic twice. for some reason i cant delete it...
