Discussed it among with a few friends, and decided that since there's other threads out there like for 3D modeling and whatnot, let's have a thread here for any 2D artists out there! Now we know there are a few threads of some specific artists, but let's bring all of us together in this thread for fun. :)

It doesn't matter if you're bad or good, post your stuff here! Your works, works in progress, projects, and other stuff!

Can be any medium. From digital art, to traditional pencil, or painting or whatever else! As long as it's 2D art!

The purpose of this thread is to bring artists together to praise one another, give each other critiques, show progress, etc. Just have fun! Don't be afraid to post your art if you're still new to it and whatnot!

Notes:

1) Do not mock another person's work, saying things like 'ur art sucks', 'ur art is deformed lol', etc. There's a difference between that, and providing actual constructive criticism. If you have nothing nice to say about someone's art, don't say anything at all.

2) Do not mock an artist for their style or the contents of their art. Everyone has their unique styles and there's some things they particularly enjoy drawing. It can be APB related or not APB related. It doesn't matter. We're not here to discourage them from what they want to draw.

 

This thread is here to encourage artists new and old. Help bring people together and perhaps even bring out even more artists within this community. Help them grow, improve, and be awesome artists as well!

 

Let's get drawing!

 

 

I'll start with some stuff I've been owing Skitty for like a while now. I'm still in the process of trying to get used to coloring digitally.

I was hoping to actually put the albums of people who did 2d/traditional drawing on the exporting apb thread too. Really we should just have a proper pinned mega thread for finished works from everyone.

But we do need a 2nd thread for sure. Hopefully bring out more artist.

Yeah, would be nice. But i would like to see artists drawings and not the ones made by 10yo.

 

Literally anything anyone would wanna post in here - I'd love to see; done by a 10 year old or not.

 

Any small sketch or large scale project would be great :^] - it'll help build up motivation to work on stuff when people post their work in search for encouragement. So, please post everyone! :^D

I'm so shy to post >. < - but i'll start, post 1 now then another later or 2.

 

This is what I did in highschool like 2-3 years ago for a project; worked on it heavily for the arms then slowly put in less effort for the folds (now that I look at it, I honestly am 95% I didn't put in proper effort) - but clothes folds are something I still have not fully worked on since I've only been progressing on/off with drawing for a month and a half to two months!

 

I dont nearly put much time into things now and mainly just spend 20-30 minutes rough sketching things with a pencil.

Is not negative, is honest criticism.

But i understand why you add the "doesnt matter if you are good or bad" anyways.

I'm not entirely sure, I don't think it was too long because she(teacher) stressed that we grid it and if you look closely there are some ( + ) marks; so I believe it was as close to proportion as I could have gotten it

 

this is half of the original that I worked from:

http://duster132.dev...NINJA-452848569

 

I had to mash together two images and this was one of them.

An easy way to remember it: elbow is almost at the same hight where the last rib is.

The shadowing you gave it is pretty nice.

 

Ive been watching some time ago coloured (pencil) drawings, some people have so much skil.

I'll keep that in mind, here's another one; which I drew alongside a friend of mine last night. First real time drawing a female, doing a hoodie, and managing hair; so friggin' hard. Did it really late and just rushed through the smaller details like the zipper and that dumb as hell logo, plus the side face in like 2-3 minutes.

Lol, making a drawing is not matter on how fast you make it. Its how well you are willing to do it, take your time.

I cant, for example, force me to draw something from nothing. If i am not inspired my drawing will look really bad ;(

Yeah, I do these at like 2-3 in the morning sometimes so I do get tired, and I often don't care for small details such as the ones that I rushed through (ultimately didn't NEED to do them) as long as I accomplished the bare minimum of what I was hoping to achieve [Asking someone: `Does it look like at least look like a female``?, if they said 'yes' then I am completely content :) ]

I got this idea few months back, when considering working on that APB themed calendar again: how about we make a special group picture of all creative people of APB? We have drawers and drawettes, 3D magicians, visual wizards, digital painters and hardcore artists like Brandon. How about we reproduce our favourite avatars in any prefered artistic style and then put them together in one picture?

Why? For the glory of Satan, of course! I believe this thread is supposed to gather up creative human beings and other "not-robots", so why don't we work on something both individually and together?

Just an idea.

How many times do I have to remind you that I am not your legal mother? You are supposed to call me Wilbur.

And if you don't want to play with other kids, there are still some house chores that need to be done.

I'm using an existing non-APB character that's technically a 3D model but I'm converting it to a 2D model to use in FaceRig, and likely my own projects later on. It still counts right? :D

The character the 3D model is based off of is Miss Monochrome, and the 3D model itself was done by me in 3DS Max and another program PMXEditor (used to prepare models for animation in MMD videos (there's all kinds of them))

The '2D model' is put together in the program Live2D Cubism which is used to animate drawings as if it were psuedo-3D for games, etc.

I simply split the 3D model I made into individual parts and put them together in that program, then I edit the textures to fix parts that would not be shown if the character was completely there. I plan to first animate the model for FaceRig and then I'll take what I've learned to try and actually draw something like one of my APB characters based of any screenshots I still have (roflimbannedsoicantaccesthemingame)

idk. I'm not that great at drawing so maybe I could even do a character that someone else wants done that way.

That seems pretty neat I'd be down for that.

 

I'm surprised more people aren't posting. Guess I'll post something.

 

Little Christmas avatar I sketched up real quick but never finished. Got caught up in too many things at the time so never could finish it during the holidays. I've got some other stuff going but I'll probably post that stuff later on. Nothing too interesting. I'll just edit this post when I do it.

 

fda111f764.jpg

 

 

 

Here's a couple more things, I work long hours so I can barely get anything going. I'm usually half asleep by the time I get home so I barely have any energy to draw anything. Usually sketch maybe 1-2 things a week if that. Most of my stuff now is heavily unfinished as you can clearly see lol.

Oh wow I adore this. You got her colors down just right, hair eyes, skin, etc... Red hair, green eyes, peachy skin. Hard to see on my phone cause I'm at work right now but I really love this lol. Now I feel obligated to return the favor

 

Also, you coloring it made it blatantly obvious to me that I forgot to finish the rest of her left hand. Went ahead and fixed that lol...

That would be cool. I'd be down for that. I did art trades every once in a while back on dA when I was active. Good way to draw stuff outside your comfort zone which for me would be other people's characters lol.
