I did a drawing!
« on: October 2, 2017, 06:39:23 PM »
I just recently got a new iPad and I've been trying out the drawing features.  And I came up with this:



Primarus Head!  Using one of my own miniatures as a reference.  Crudely done with just my finger, mostly to see how the app works, I'm going to get the pencil asap.  Hopefully that'll help improve things.  I used to be much better at this but a decade out of the game has rendered me rusty as hell.  :P

Keep going. There's no harm in creating. It's http://inktober.com/  They say ink but I say art.

I'll try to aim for a drawing a day.  It's the only way I'll get any better.

Not bad for a li'l sketch.
Incidentally, I also did a little face-sketch today, though just with a pen.

Cool!  Faces (and hands) are definitely the hardest things to draw.

I don't think I got the perspective right here.  It seems distorted.  Definitely something to work on.

I did that drawing a day thing for a while, it's amazing how much you improve when you do it all the time and don't stress if you do a bad one.

Good luck!

G'day Cap!
If that's what you come up with using your finger, keen to see What you come up with using a pen.As rough as this piece is, it shows you have a good flow to your etching. Am an ink guy myself. Haven't been bold enough to step onto the graphic art stage as yet... Hats off!

Cheers!  I picked up the Apple Pencil today so the future work will hopefully be improved.  Only thing is, this damn toothache is destroying my concentration and motivation to do anything let alone draw.  :P

Nice one! Gonna post more?

I most certainly am! :)

I'm currently in the process of drawing another marine now, and I plan to go back and improve that first one too!  Stay tuned!

Niiiiice!
Good pose and Everything in proportion. Would be nice to see an action shot though. Leaping over ruble. Taking out a jaw with the butt of his rifle maybe? Keep up the good work, mate. Looking Micky Mouse... Be well!

Thank you guys.   :)

I'll try to do some action poses.  In the meantime I tried to add some colour to my work and...oh dear



I'm going to have start over there, because this is just awful.  :P

It's only awful if we don't learn from them, mate. something as simple as moving those yellow shines to the top outside corners of the lens would make all the world of difference... Pointy ears forever!!
