Hey everyone,

ok i badly need to be able to draw some cartoon characters (just normal looking humans) for a project. However i totally suck at it at the moment.

i am asking for any help by giving tips, links to tutorials or whatever to be posted below to help me

This is NOT that japanese anime stuff and the colouring will be single block colours, but i just cant draw cartoon perspectives!

to give you an idea of what style of cartoons i need to draw, take a look at this picture sharkixland.free.fr/cover/Blin…</b>

thanks for anyhelp! :hug:
(and i said help. dont reply with that 'just take your time and learn your own style crap! i wouldnt be asking if i wasnt in desperation to learn this VERY quickly!)

:)
Yes i fucked up.

I wont say what i got. Lets just say it was ATLEAST 2 whole grades below what i was predicted.

So its unlikely i will be accepted into University now.. i am yet to hear from them so far.

In other news, looks like i might brush the dust off my Photoshop and get some more space scenes going.
Firstly, thanks to any of the 6 people who bothered to comment on my latest terragen piece, i appreciate it.

other news, i have been working on a new Terragen piece for a number of weeks now, only recently started doing post work to it.. when i decided i would render it 3 more times with some different settings to help with the post work.  Never before have i spent this much time doing extra to a terragen piece, so im pretty proud of this so far!


Eyes peeled for the July Featured Artist and Deviation!
Ok so my trial subscription ended, and that sucks because the subscriptions rule!

:: Current Projects ::
I have spent the last 2 hours on an artificial lens flare.. i hate the look of the photoshop Render > Lens Flare stuff in space art, so i am creating my own lens flare template that i can copy into my work whenever i need a lightsource.
Some may be thinking why not just create each flare as you need it?. The answer is, i have tried that, and somehow it ALWAYS seems to come out very low quality somehow..
So i am creating this one at 3000 x 3000 and some stupidly large pix/inch (or whatever) and its taking like a minute to register each brush stroke.

:: Rant ::
Ok i now have 120+ people watching me, however, on my latest piece, i have so far had no more than 5 comments.... i need to progress, so i need crit :D

:: Art Groups ::
i have re-joined some of my old art groups as of today i am the following:

:iconterrastock: - TerraStock
[Co-Administrator]

:iconpilots: - Pilots
[Head Administrator]

:iconterracult: - terracult
[Administrator]

:iconterraspace: - TerraSpace
[Member]

more news to come on a few of those soon :)

Enjoy

:bulletblue: :bulletblue: News :bulletblue: :bulletblue:

Uploaded a minimalistic Space scene, had a bit of a mixed response. The title gives a bit of a insight to the actual art piece, but the main reason for the image was to practice creating planets. Whilst it is a definate improvement on my planets made a year ago i still know i can do better.

I have also made a promise to myself, if after my next few space scenes become pretty popular (as in more than a mere 24 people comment on them :() then i will buy myself a subscription in a couple of months. Unless ofcourse someone else has it in them to buy one for me ;) but i would never ask anyone personally for that.
I dont see much point in spending £16 on a subscription though if i continue to get very few comments, so well have to see how it goes :P

Also dont forget to check out the Featured artist and deviation! they are picked for a reason, outstanding artwork, so head on over and give them a comment :)


--------------------


:bulletblue: :bulletblue: Current Projects :bulletblue: :bulletblue:

Started on a new Space scene, it is going to be a sort of collab with a very well know and talented Space Artist here on DA, more of that closer to the time though.

Also i have began work on a digital painting. All i will tell you now is that its of a US Marine, thats all the info your getting for now. :)

Rather than havin hundreds of journal entries for every time something happens to me i will do monthly ones and update them.. so here it is the June Journal

:bulletblue: :bulletblue: News :bulletblue: :bulletblue:

Not much art from me at the moment or for a while as i have exams for another few weeks, afterwards is summer and time to go outside. But i will still be up for collabs. Not happy at all with any of my work at the moment which is why none will be submitted. Trying desperately to create a nice unique method for nebulae but its getting nowhere, so i think it will have to go on hold.

I've gone Mad editing my Deviations this morning.. hope they have improved!

NEW AVATAR :: Decided to make a new avatar of my most favourite business ever! hope to be working for them some day.  oh how i can dream :(

--------------------


:bulletblue: :bulletblue: Current Projects :bulletblue: :bulletblue:

:bulletred: Collab with :iconburning-liquid: - Very excited about this, only recently decided to do a collab and came out with some great suggestions. An idea no one on DA has seen before

:bulletred: Collab with :icongarcia: - My appologies to Garcia have been swamped with work recently and havent had a chance to start this work yet, but it will be very soon as i have his amazing render

:bulletred: Collab with :iconalyn: - Hope to start this soon, honoured to work with this guy

:bulletred: Collab with :iconabsolutehalo: - Just finishing the render for this piece then i can pass it over to get some real skill put into it

www.deviantart.com/view/765621… - To see this from a 3D desiner would be impressive but to find out it was done completely in photoshop is outstanding ukitakumuki has made a superb job of this especially with the lighting

Due to Exams and trying to start up TerraSpace i have had little time for my own art.

However here is what i will be working on in the near future:

:bulletred: Collab with alyn - an interesting piece no doubt, i cant wait for the outcome!

:bulletred: Collab with absolutehalo - Part of the TerraSpace May / June contest

:bulletred: Collab with garcia - a great Terragen artist i'm glad to be working with

:bulletred: Experimental Work on nebulas - I may submit some of my outcomes into my scrap gallery, but it all depends how well i find my own techniques

This should take me a few months no doubt with my busy schedule,

Thanks
