i'm pretty sure i wrote a reply in this thread a few hours ago but i guess someone disapproved of my post.

i don't really understand why it was deleted though, the guy obviously wanted people to comment on his 'drawings' and that's what i did

let me restate that i think they show a complete lack of talent (assuming they were made by an adult), but i don't think that lack of talent should stop anyone from painting since it can be a wonderful form of therapy

?

I did expect someone being a critic. But in order to be a critic I would think you would have to state why it shows no talent. And I didn't paint them. <sarcasm> Being such a great judge of artistic talent, I would have expected you to see that. </sarcasm>

I know that these arn't great masterpeices. At no point did I ever claim that I was a great artist. I just wanted to share my pictures with a comunity who I thought would like them.

To come to a gaming message board and attack someone with such insults as "complete lack of talent" and implying that they need therapy tells me that you are the one in need of therapy.

It art classes we were taught that when offering criticism, you tell the person what is crap, then tell them whats good, so they know whats wrong, without being discouraged. You don't just tell them they suck and leave it at that.

well isn't this ironic, now the thread has been moved to a newly created forum called "art styles"

dunno if bad art is an actual style, but a blue canvas is called abstract expressionism, so why not

well, i guess that's it, keep em coming

Welll, Poo, if you don't like his art and think that he is a talentless boob, lets see you do better. I mean, just beacuse he wanted to share something withthe community here is no reason to attack him. Positive encouragement goes a long way.

Poo doesn't mean what he's saying. He's just stirring up... poo.


As for the drawings. They are good to look at. That is all.

I really like the drawing of the guy with the lantern; it has a really great style and feeling. The girl with the swords is well done but fairly typical in it's presentation - it doesn't have the character the other illustration has.

thanks .. but I'm not that good .. my brother did those!

I do paint however (don't know why I can't draw!!).. and made these .. :p but it's very hard and I still need to learn some of the basic techniques! (like frontal faces)

You've got a very nice colour/texture technique in the more abstract areas of your work; try and carry that into your work with faces. The hard lines of the face in the first image don't work as well as those nice textures you've got as background and border segments.

If people can use it against me I can use it against others. Actually I am looking for maps of Neverwinter so I can get a proper rendering of the city with the toolset. I got one of Luskan and Waterdeep, but the Forgotten Realms Interactive Atlas doesn't have one of Neverwinter, which kind of sucks.

hmm that's actually a good idea ..

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


I needed to make him stand out .. and kinda move out of the background, and the only way to do that was to make the lines harder in the face .. that caused him to get a kinda 3d effect .. but in future works I'll take that into consideration ..

thanks for the advice .. :p

Those are sweet. I can never get shading done that well. Even when I have something to look at to see the shading I can never get it to look right.

This was one I did from highschool with an ink pen. So many dots.... Drove me nuts. My instructor said that I wasnt done yet but my hand felt differently. It didnt want to move anymore. In it, at least the shading is in the right places. Unlike the other drawings I have posted which has lights where there shouldnt be any.

omg the time that must have taken a long time.. :lol:
but it looks great though, and shadows are good! I definitely like the style, but (as I guess is the point) it looks much better from a distance ..

thanks .. the funny thing is that I'm colorblind .. (rather extreme actually) and people always say I have an interesting choice of colour!

I hope it helps me like in Beethoven's case .. :D

Ok gonna try a different approach. Draw with no shading or color and then print off copies to color. Got a new dwarf that I'm gonna try this with.

Why is it always dual wielding drow? Why never a dual axe weilding dwarf? Ok, ok.. so there was Gimli. Still trying to decide on how I want to have this guys personality in the modules I plan to make. But pretty sure he is going to be heavy on the dual weild feats. Just seems odd though that one of the stout folk would ever be more dexterous than strong or durable.
