  • After the tips you gave me a while ago on drawing, I would like to ask how you draw hair exactly. At least when more detail is put into it, like strands.

    Here's a few tips.

    When drawing a person, the distance from the chin to the armpit is about the distance of 1 head (artists measure body proportions in heads).
    The hips/crotch area is about 3 heads down (4 head lengths down from the very top of the person's head).
    The top of the shoulder is about halfway between the chin and the armpit.
    Each half of the arm is about 1 head long, meaning that the wrists, when idle, should be about level with the crotch.

    Women are approximately 7 1/2 head lengths tall, while Men are 8 head lengths tall.

    Hope this helps.

    My point being that: your arms might look awkward because they may not be proportional.

    This was my problem.

    If the problem is positioning, then looking up poses might help.

    I need to use my head more too. I have the images in my head, and maybe I need to just go from there. Using heads to measure actually sounds really useful, so I should use that too.

    Would you consider yourself a good artist? I have some questions.

    I saw your Malos drawing, and I was quite impressed. If anything, I want to improve my drawing skills just for the sake of it.

    Is it possible for you to PM me this weekend, so I can get some tips on what to do? I do have some drawings, but character designs, yet I find them very difficult with more detail.

    I can certainly PM you later.

    The only way to improve is practice, practice, practice. Experts don't often talk about the amount of hours it takes to get good at a craft, and just let people believe that their skills are a matter of natural talent.

    It sounds trite, but it's a matter of believing that you can do it and having dedication. You should see how much Mythra has improved in just 100 days.

    As Chuck Jones once said while quoting one of his old professors, "Every artist has thousands of bad drawings in them and the only way to get rid of them is to draw them out.".

    You should do another character poll now that we got all base game and 2 dlc.

    I've been meaning to ask you this for a while, but are you fluent in Japanese? I've been stuck on it for a while...

    Yep. To think that I might need to learn at least 1,000 just to understand basic talk scares me. Maybe I need to get used to radicals instead...

    Well you don't really need to learn the kanji to learn the basic talk :p

    Reaaaading it is another story (I know that's what you meant, I'm just picking on you)
    Vocab is my weakest point cause it keeps leaving my head. I really wish I had a teacher or something to keep me on track haha

    One of my teachers is actually really fluent at the language because he's been to Japan for about a year. We don't get to talk much nowadays, but I wish we did.
    So, I was wondering, have you made any Ryu Hayabusa custom icons at any point? I'm very interested in seeing any that exist. Pakky told me that you may have made some.

    That's pretty good! I do want to know if you could also try his original design as well. It's okay if you have other things to get to, though.

    Do you mean his NES design? I can make some time to do it, if you want.
    Iridium
    Iridium
    Yes, that one, and I would appreciate it! I like both designs equally, honestly.
    Why is your name purple?

    I've been Pranked. Someone with a Premium account is forcing me to have a this colour (and "Pranked!" underneath it) for a month.

    Because we're the chosen ones.
    Can I ask a favour?

    Yes, you can ask. :)

    Okay, a guy already made a Jack of Blades icon. But, he didn't make it as big as I wanted it, would you be able to increase it?
    KMDP

    I resized it, you can find it on the Stock Icons thread, although it became pretty blurry in the process; you might have to ask drag0nscythe personally to make a bigger one.
    Can I use your Decidueye stock icon in the Decidueye's support thread's OP?
