    post a drawing!

    would love to see any drawings you've made
    preferably drawings that are not of the notoriously good (we've seen enough of those)

    tryed to scan in a few myself, but one got lighted funny, and two got cropped.

    this one just happened to get cropped in a convenient way:

    i wonder if anyone can recognize it?

    dont be shy about posting either (i myself am contemplating wether or not i should submit this...), i dont think anyone will make rude comments

    and keep the pictures within the guidelines please

    i'm with Kris

    maybe people could present their concept art for Games, but still that probably should be in the art section.

    That's a strange stance ? if you want a quality topic about sketching / artworks / concepts, I think it would actually be usefull to have the best in there too ? I mean, that's how one progress : by seeing what other people do better, no ?

    Not sure if I should post mine, as I don't know if I belong to the "notoriously good" or not, but I still think it's a strange request you have here

    Got to be honest, I'm with Kris on this. If it was a sketch from a completed game, thereby showing the design process, then fair enough.
    But it's not, it's just a sketch of something which was rendered as a test.

    Although just to be a bit hypocritical, the games forum isn't purely about games, we do go off on a tangent a fair bit. So I don't think it should be here, but I don't care that it is. It's not doing any harm, but in the grand scheme of things it's a bit pointless and perhaps suited more elsewhere on FK.

    right, sorry about posting in this forum (strange, i recall doing this once before, and it was not a big deal)

    as for the "not notoriously good" part, i mean dont repost images youve already done all over the place. a good number of people have already seen them and chances are, praised them a good bit too

    apparantly this thread was a mistake:

    everfornever: nice pictures btw, though i believe ive seen them once before. i honestly think that perhaps i should start drawing more often, as i rarely do, but am actually interested in it

    ah, ok ...I misunderstood

    Well, it's been actually posted once somewhere else, but might still be relevant to the topic.

    This is few steps of a concept are drawing - not perfect, but I insisted on myself to not spend more than one week-night per concept, so that's roughly 5 hours ...
    I thought it could be interesting to share the process, specially for people that have not too much experience drawing : doing most of the job in photoshop is actually a great way to cut on time, if you aren't overly concerne about "style" or "the hand of the artist"

    Perspective is off, but I still liked the final result somewhat, so I kept it

    Step 1 - quick sketch (one of many, I couldn't actually find the one that started the "final" drawing, so I took the closest I had )


    Step 2 - paperpen sketch


    Step3 - Scan, and port of sketch on a photoshoped "paper" texture
    I mirrored it, and erased the parts I was unhappy with


    Step4 - working on the green glow


    Step5 - the full color work is made directly in photoshop - here it is without the outlines


    Step6 - with Outlines - I stopped here, because I wanted the "concept art" feel for the drawing, so I watched not overdoing the outlines, nor the colors ... it is a quick work, but moreso, it means to "look" quickly done


    and this is how it will look like in game (minus the fake Libram text )

    And also to that last post... this is very well done using trogdor458's picture and giving him your piece of his work. BRILLIANT

    Not really - the paper texture comes for a parchement texture that I re-worked years ago, and i've been using it a lot, playing with the saturation or the color

    great, now i want to draw something cool too, but it would seem i dont quite have the ability. all i can make is a simple outline in flash at the moment (btw, it makes it really hard to do if you leave "snap to objects" on the entire time)

    pfft, no details, no colors, no nothin'

    EDIT: btw, make sure the window displays the whole thing, it looks worse when it's resized
