123mine123's Doodles and Tries To Learn How To Draw

Postby 123mine123 » Fri Apr 03, 2015 4:47 am

Hello there!
Now a little bit about myself.
I'm a 20 year old guy who aims to improve his art skills by being a hobbyist cartoonist!
Now a little bit about why I draw..

I've been drawing random stuff as a kid.
I didn't take it seriously, I just wanted to doodle stuff when I get bored at school.

Then around.. Sept 2012, I drew fanarts because by the time then, I though it was fun and maybe I might learn how to draw.

And then after 7 months of doing this, I completely stopped drawing...
Why? Because it got boring and I'm not improving at all...
Until around Nov 2013 I found this webcomic, Lackadaisy..
The art style, story, and characters are all just amazing!
It just renewed my will to draw and this time, to actually learn how to draw!

But I also posted my stuff in the Newgrounds art forums and listened to their advice.

That's basically it of why I draw and how I learned to do it.

But for a basic gist of what I'm doing now, here's a few of recent stuff.

I'll leave it at that. xD
Have a nice day/night!
I'll try to post studies and doodles whenever I can.
IS THERE NO END TO THIS!!! :3

Hi and welcome! Good start, and cool to hear how you found your inspiration to draw again. Now do more of everything and keep it up, it's rocky at first but over time you'll see lots of improvement :)

This looks promising keep it up. I like your animal characters, they're adorable :D
One question though! In the bedroom picture, there's light coming through the window that's the same color as the light from the hallway.
So.. does this room have a window into a another room of the same house? Or is this a window to the outside?
Nitpicky, I know. But I figured I'd just point it out.

Looking forward to more!

It's a weird house. xD
The door is actually the front door entrance of the house.
Both window is shining light from the outside.
If it's confusing, then I guess I failed at doing that. D:

Hey! I think you're off to a very good start. I would recommend for you to continue with anatomy. On the side, still life studies would be very beneficial. Good luck! :)

Real nice work dude I especially like the radio at the end you did. I think the reflections on the table and the general use of value throughout is pretty spot on. If anything I think a bit more use of black in the detail areas could benefit it but overall I enjoy it. Also with arms, yeah I struggle with those too I hate them shits yo but we all gotta learn em so keep at it!

On a side note, this.. scribbling/molding to get the feel of the guide is getting way too far for me. .-.
And yet, I can still see the line art and trace it correctly.

Might as well type what I have been up to since yesterday.
So, yesterday was the day enrolling stuff starts in my college.. uni to you guis I guess. The interview went smoothly, but according to a friend I made there, no one really fails there. Before the interview, we were put in a room to draw a still life with things set on a table. I guess it's a talent test to see if you have potential. But as stated before, no one really failed. To fail, you must have a REALLY low exam score or a special kind of suck. xD
According to the person who interviewed me, my drawing below has "good lines." lol, if thats the only thing I did right, I'm scared on what kind of stuff we have to do. The person who interviewed me is also our prof. He told me he wanted his students to be active and not lazy and join as many contests as possible. It seems like, being a public college which is cheaper than most colleges, most of the teachers here are lazy. But, I'll make my own opinion once school starts.
So after the interview, I went home. Then the next day, which is today, I went back there to get a medical xray check (because of tuberculosis) and write more forms and do more requirements stuff. They told me the last steps will on Friday where you are given info and stuff needed like books, school uniform, and probably art supplies too. It's also the day you can pay for your tuition. I thought it was ₱6000 per sem ($133) but it's actually just around ₱4000 ($90).
So yeah. I'm so excited! :3
Also, my prof noted that I might have a hard time adapting since I never have picked up a brush before..
Any tips, buks, or preferably, free video tuts for traditional painting on canvas? c:

After a really loooooong wait from a number of lines, I'm finally done with everything, paid my tuition, and officially enrolled to the school! YAY!
I am soooo excited!
This is probably the weirdest day for me too. I already made like.. 9 friends for some reason. People keep telling me being homeschooled, I'm gonna have a hard time with all the social stuff and with new schedule and assignments I have to keep up. But, no. I think I'm good if I plan it wisely.

Soo let's see what my subjects are.
Study and Thinking Skills. Hmm.. sounds alright.
Communication on Philippine Academics (Kominikasyon sa Akademikong Filipino) - sounds scary..
College Algebra - YAY Math. c:
Gymnastics - wuuut? Physical activity? Pfft..
Visual Perception (Elements of Visual Arts) - Sounds gud.
Freehand Drawing 1 - pfft. that's easy. kek
Modeling - wuuut? I'm gunna do sculpture?
Figure Drawing - every Friday starting at 11am and ends in 5pm? YUS!

I'm sooo ready. c:

Heya, cool stuff so far! Congrats on the college admission as well :D If you're interested in picking up traditional painting early still I've got some tips for you! It's much easier to start in acrylics or watercolors than oils, because oils are very difficult to control for new painters and often involve the use of toxic solvents. I find acrylics to be a lot like digital painting by comparison to watercolors, may be a good place for you to start. Its also worth noting that stretched canvas is expensive and you can paint on paper or canvas-textured paper while you're learning. Canvas board is excellent as well, because it is a little cheaper than stretched canvases but has a similar feel when you're painting.

Here is an excellent resource for acrylic painting: http://willkempartschool.com/how-to-pai ... nt-videos/
This guy shows the basics for free, including underpainting, color mixing, blocking in shapes, and even a bit of detailing. Its great stuff. Hope you stick around and keep posting!
