I bet! What size is this? I have a fear of doing full body realism, I have a hard time with drawing facial features on a small scale. Lol, well and it still gives me a hard time on large scale as well XD
It is 11 x 14. What size drawings do you typically work with? Yeah I don't do full body often so it was weird for me and kept having toe erase and rework areas with it. xD From what I saw in your gallery, looks like you're doing really well with it.
9x12. I had a request a month back to do another cosplayer drawing from one of my friends here. The ones I liked where smaller full body shots, so I decided to go for it...actually just started it today. The biggest issue is the lips are soon thin, thinner then my pencil tip diameter which is tough. I really hate the "H" family pencils so I tend to use my mech pencil for it. Lol yeah tons of erasing and reworking in the face areas.
thanks!! I just started drawing in May, lol needed another hobby besides thinking about my work. the transition from anime to realism is tough, I find comic work to be a lot easier, but I love the challenge of learning a realsitic approach. I enjoy doing both a lot, which is why I have a really random gallery.
Oh okay. Yeah I find that thinner lips are a bit more challenging to draw too. Oh wow that does sound difficult if it's smaller than the lead. :s Ph okay. I use the "h" family mostly. xD
you're welcome!! Wow you're growing really fast as an artist I think then. It is. I still have a tendency to draw some features, especially hands, as more cartoonish than realistic. Same here, comic work is more relaxing where the realism I have to focus more. Random gallery, I can relate to that too.
I need to learn to use the H fam. lol they exist for a reason.
Thanks ..It is easy to draw hands cartoonish, but as long as you know how to shade and render them props, you can get away with no one noticing! Realism takes so much focus, I can only do it for like an hour at a time.
I'm lame with mechanical pencils. I should practice more with those.
You're welcome. Ah that's true. You can always hide some stuff in the shadows of shading. It really does. Same here. I have to teak breaks from it by drawing cartoons or comic book characters between projects. It's weird because realism with flowers isn't the same. It's just with drawing people. Idky.
Oh wow!O_O This is crazy good! All those details... I'm really impressed with how you drew the guitar, angles like that are tricky to get right. And just his outfit and posture, gosh it's so awesome! He's even wearing that skeleton glove (but only cause Gerard made him).XD His jeans are super awesome too! and the shading on the guitar strap, wow! Gosh, I've always had a bit of a crush on Gerard, but I think this drawing is making me transfer my affections to Frank (haha, not).XD OK, I'll stop the fangirling now.^^ Oh but, um, what happened to Pansy? (Please don't tell me he smashed it onstage.)
Sorry it has been a while I am trying my best to get caught up on here :s This drawing, I really enjoyed drawing a lot! Frank just obviously loves music and is very passionate about what he does and it just comes across in so many pictures of him. As soon as I saw that picture of him I wanted to give it a try. I am terrible with fretboards and string detail but this turned out okay I guess because of the angle he was holding it. xD OMG, thank you so so much for all the kind words :3 Haha Fangirl all you want my sista^^ I love these guys!!! Pansy was damaged by someone else actually, but Frank still has the pieces of her. I thought that was sweet that he kept her
Hey it's OK, I understand. You're so talented I'll bet you get about a gazillion dA messages everyday.xD I haven't been on dA much, so that's why my reply is late, sorry.>.< I can tell you loved drawing this! Frank is a fantastic performer, the guy is so damn energetic! Your guitar came out totally lovely, I see no flaws AT ALL. Lol, fangirling is fun, but I tend to creep my friends out when i go off about My Chem.xD So, I'm glad you seem to love em' as much as I do! Well, at least he didn't smash Pansy, I hate it when rockstars do that, it pains my soul. Aww, that is sweet that he kept her. You're very welcome BTW!
Thanks for understanding I do get a few, but lately I've had some not so great things gling on that's kept me away but season's change eventually I suppose. It's cool...I have no probs with late replies Yeah Frank ia an amazing performer and energetic and passionate about his music! Wow, thanks for that. Guitars are challenging for me, especially the fretboard. Haha indeed it is xD I tend to creep my friends out just by being a ginger xD They think I'm gonna eat their souls hahaha xD This is true. Yeah I don't see why a guitar needs to be smashed either. Makes no sense :/ That is sweet of him and you can see his attachment and fondness for his guitars when he wants to keep the remains of one :3 Always nice talking with you
Sorry, it's my turn to apologize for a very late reply. I'm a bit swamped in messages right now.XD Frank surprised me a little when I first saw Life on the Murder Scene. At first I thought "Oh dear, he's going to hurt himself!" That was quickly followed by "Never mind that, he's going to hurt his bandmates, thrashing around like that."XD But I really like how he's so into his music. I recently read an interview where he was talking about how he just never stops writing and playing, and how he wouldn't know what to do with himself if he wasn't making music. I thought that was pretty neat. Well, your guitar does look amazing. Franks fingers on the fretboard (which is definetly a hard part to draw) look very natural as well. I've got a friend who's a ginger, yet she's the most sweet mellow person I know.XD Seriously though, no soul eating.XD It bothers me too, guitars are my favorite instruments and I can't imagine scratching one on purpose, let alone smashing it. I think Pete Townsend of The Who was the one who really started all the guitar smashing business. It's nice talking to you too, expect more of me spamming you with fan messages.XD
It's totally okay. I can relate to that. Oh yeah, I thought the same thing too. And when he cracked Ray's head open with his guitar. :s He musta felt bad for that. :s He is really dedicated to his music and sincere with it. Not just there to gain income ya know. Looking forward to the release of his new video soon. Ah, thanks! They don't usually turn out so well. The frets and strings are usually crooked. xD Yes, I think that was the most difficult part of the drawing. Lots of erasing involved there. Oh really? Nice. Okay, I'll try to cut back on the soul eating. I love that Frank names his guitars. Makes them seem like each one has it's own personality and is dear to him like as if they were his kids or close friends. Maybe I'm just being weird. :s Anywho, I did not know that about Pete Townsend. Thanks! Looking forward to it. xD
Hi again!^^ Frank hit Ray in the head with his guitar!? Ahh, dude really?XD I'm sure he would've had to feel bad for that. I agree, he's very dedicated to his music. I find it refreshing! It seems all too often that people sell out and forget why they started playing music to begin with. Frank just does it because it's a big part of who he is, and he can't imagine doing anything different. I do believe we had a chat about his videos. You're welcome! I can understand why getting the frets and strings to come out straight would be hard. You nailed it though! Haha, it is sweet that he names them. I usually just say the brand name.XP
Well hello there! ^^ Yeah, but it was an accident. He probably did. It is refreshing and for the reason you've stated. There's so much "music" but where's the heart? I think when an artist has their heart in it for their love of music and not money then it really comes across in what they produce. I dunno maybe I'm wrong. It just seems that way to me. Frank definitely is one to out his all into his music. Indeed we did. Ahh thanks! Haha I named my guitar but it isn't even a cool name so the brand name is probably the better way to go. xp
