StolenMadWolf's Random Bad Art

Well, more like steadily improving art but what do you know, it's an artifact from SB.

For a while now I've been trying to do some more drawing, especially since I now have a laptop with touchscreen capability. So I've been doing some digital art for the last few months.

Mainly by doing wolf heads.

So, here you go, here is a current timeline of what I've been doing so far, including my current WIP.

I was initally very much on and offer, just doing the same basic head everyso often from different angles.



Eventully I started to do something a little bit more substancial, throwing in some colors and even shading to mixed success.



And now I might be getting onto my own sort of psuduo-style so to speak. I've decided to try and go into this one with a bit more effort and so far it seems to be paying off with this halfbody. I mean, the head and eyes actually look really good for once. I'll put in some fresh updates for that soon.

I like the stuff you did in April.

Well, I've got another step further and finished up that halfbody. I feel like it is a pretty significant improvement! Even tried experimenting with glowing effects and a simple background.
Still not brilliant, but I feel like it's a pretty big leap forward.

So far just been doing a fresh new sketch instead of the original full body so I have a bit of time to work towards that point.



Just laying out some ideas, though I will need to adjust the body a bit more, thin the arms, and desprately learn how to draw hands.

Welp, I have been doing this piece on and off for a while now, and I could try and throw in some more details for the overall piece, but I figured I might as well just get it finished up. Especially since I don't think I'll be able to do waves properly.

Basically, I went ahead and did my character out near the sea, and stylised somewhat so it's fairly similar to a place I used to go on a regular basis.

And here it is:

Yeah, I actually gave doing a full fledged background a crack.

Again, not perfect, but I feel as if I'm making progress!

I will look at getting some rough sketches of mine up later, and I might actually be trying my hands on a weapon idea soon.

In the meantime, I'm giving a full body a try, and see if I can actually do something fairly humanoid with actual limbs rather than blocks.

I'm going a bit further by adding actual tuffs into place along with basic body proportions. I might need to do some reshuffling here and there, and I might actually have to shrink the hands as well. But it's definitely looking better than previous attempts at full bodies, albeit after a load of rough sketches and looking at plenty of references to get a better idea of what to try.

Well, I had been trying to work on my upper bodies and torsos, but I've not had much in the way of success. All my bodies look more like blobs until after a lot of redos where they look vaguely okay, but it's still not brilliant.

So, I decided to try something different. I tried to draw a character in an anime style and whilst admittedly I relied on a few guides and references to get things such as proportions right... it's so far actually came out very nicely indeed. Especially when I try a new eye effect of mine.



Might do more with the character down the line, although this piece will still need shading.

Well, I expanded the last piece a little bit more with some shading and highlighting. Still need to do better with the latter, but given this is my first try with an anime style character, this has actually gone pretty well, especially with the shiny metal effect I've tried.

Best piece I've done so far.

Recently started up RuneScape again, specifically OSRS, and figured that I might as well try something new. Old School RuneScape and RuneScape 3 both use different artistic styles, so I figured that I would go ahead with taking the basic design of OSRS items, and combine that nostalgia with RS3's flair.

So, I decided to redesign a weapon fron the game. Specifically my favourite, Silverlight.

Here is what I came up with:



I basically combined elements from three different ingame versions of Silverlight depending on the development era. The blade from the original model, the crossguard from the second, RS2-era improved model, and the hilt from the RS3 version.

I still need to work on shading, and trying to figure out how to merge the lines safely together with the shaded areas. I'm also planning on doing a modified version with the RS3 version's Tron Line.

I've been working on a new piece as of late, and whilst I am definitely liking the overall result so far, specifically the head. However, I've got a little bit of extra feedback and I wasn't sure how to proceed. Basically, my old 'friend' anatomy is coming back to haunt me.



I've had a couple of suggestions to widen the shoulders and upper torso, but everytime I do that, the whole body looks top heavy and just ruins the look. Enough that I don't really want to look into adjusting that. But legs have proven more difficult. Specifically the right leg. Some have told me that leg is fine as a starting point, but a few have also said that the leg is too thin and/or lanky as well. Every time I've tried to thicken, shorten and lengthen the leg, it just comes out looking even worse than before.

Any thoughts and suggestions on that leg especially?

Alright, due to real life events, I have lost alot of muse as of late for drawing, at least at specific times. So I figured I would post up an image of my current project. It's mostly done, I would just need to adjust some of the lines and work on shading, but the basics for the piece are now done. Looking better the last attempts:

Welp, I've had a slow down in muse regarding my current drawing project. So I figured that I would mess around with a rough sketch of a species I have been working on for a while now.

Meet the Nyxdai.


Long story short, the Nyxdai are essentially metal armoured space raptors. :naughty:

Furthermore, they have a culture that could be considered a blend of that of the Vikings and that of the Scottish Clans to boot. They resemble Halo's Elites save for some physical differences, but they also draw alot of inspiration from the likes of Destiny's Fallen, Mass Effect's Turians and even a fan-species from Starbound, the Avali. But I am working to make the Nyxdai as original as possible.

It's only a rough sketch, but it helps get a few ideas together. Hopefully I will develop the Nyxdai further down the line.

Let me know what you think, I'm curious.
