More photos! [07 Jun 2006|08:20pm]

[ mood | okay ]

I uploaded four pictures from my trip to NYC last September. I made an album on Facebook and am too lazy to upload them somewhere else. There is a fountain, a tree and two of Strawberry Fields. You can see them by clicking here, even if you don't have a Facebook account. Please, tell me what you think?

Did I say that I loathe you? I can't take my eyes off of you. [29 May 2006|03:51pm]

Good to see this community roaring. Here's some new medium for you all...

version #2!
featuring: manboob, pithair, less-of-a-smile, and a wonky excuse for a scar in the place where everyone seems to like to stick lightsabers through his shoulder. i have also tried to make him look a little older, as it has been pointed out to me that he really should look about seven years older than he really his.

Is anyone alive in here?

New doodle, same subject, but this time more representitive of their current relationship situation.

All that is really fleshed out (as it were) in this drawing is their faces, generally the hair, and part of his hand. Bodies forthcoming. I just wanted to get THEM right before I jumped into details.

Same plea as before: tell me everything, anything, that comes to mind about this. Their expressions, the pose, how something looks, etc. Suggestions, comments, questions, criticism PLEASE.

#2: 800 x 569Collapse )

ps) I forgot to add the part of the scar that is visible on the right side of her face before I scanned =X So that's some quality photoshopping right there. Just so you get the idea and all. Also: The contrast has been adjusted to make the scan darker and clearer.

edit picture changed to represent a very subtle change I made to his nose. I like this better than having it perfectly straight. Yes? No?

Time to submit something of my own for you picking-apart pleasure!
I mentioned that I doodle. Well, voila!

This is by no means a finished product. In fact, this is only revision numero dos.
But it's something I really really need people to give me criticism for because I've been having trouble, namely with the man. I don't draw lots of men. Generally, I don't find them as interesting :P But my main problem with him is making him look older and non-prettyboyish. He's supposed to be 38 years old, she's 35: the way I had it the first time around it looked like she was totally robbing the cradle.

But anyway, for him I need rougher and older to happen. I'm okay with her, but if you see something I don't pleasepleaseplease say it.

As it is at the moment, 800 x 692Collapse )

I totally had to restrain myself from giving him a little scar on his jawline or something.

Okay, and IF I were to put his hand on her (that's been another dilemma, but I think I've decided that I like the idea of having his hand there), that's about how it would be—there on the right with the kind of deformed thingies that are placeholders for fingers at the moment. And then her hair would kind of be spilling out: a little over it, a little through the fingers, maybe some over her own arm, the rest on what you can see of her chest.

Speaking of chests, they will be clothed, btw. You just won't really be able to see much of it because, well, yeah.

I was told the previous drawing was hard to see. If you can't see this well enough on your monitor, I can adjust it and start scanning darker.

Also: the finished deal WILL have consistancy style-wise. I know they each look different right now, but there's still detailing and shading and all that to add to her, and simplifying and cleaning-up to do to him.

He's still in rough shape as it is anyway.

Please, really, tear me a new one. I honestly have no idea when it comes to drawing—and that is not fishing. I'm serious. I've just kinda putzed around and doodled and tried different things for years. Everything I do is the product of self-teaching and generally just learning things the hard way.

But I like doing it. And I would love input/help.

An aside (sort of): These are established characters in a writing project gavinvedder and I started up as a plain ol' RP when we were 11/12. Now we're attacking it more intellectually and fleshing it out. When we get around to putting it together, I can guarantee it will make a few appearances here. We're good, but three minds are better than two, and more than that...well, awesome.

As prompted by questions from a few of you: yes, by all means begin sharing!

I apologize for any lack of direction on my part during the time between now and my last post: my grandmother passed away and my family and I basically dropped everything and rushed out of town for awhile. I had no internet, and in all honesty I was a little distracted anyway.

But I'm back home now. So yes yes, post like crazy. Sorry for the confusion.
