Heyo Workshop! I'm getting into the TF2 drawing groove again and thought I'd give myself a try in workshop for help on my pieces. So any critique on my stuff I post here would be highly appreciated.

So I decided I wanted to make a fan class, so... meet the REVOLUTIONARY!

He'll eventually get some guns and stuff (I was thinking an AK-47 and some smoke grenades?), but for now I just want everyone's opinions, crits, etc. I'm kinda aiming to mimic the art direction of TF2, what with the large hands, angular, blocky form, etc.

Also he kind of carries a large flag/spear as his melee weapon. Lame, I know.

I imagine at first they'd immediately dislike each other (what with the whole Cuban Missile Crisis being just a few years ago), racial slurs would be flung as well as punches, but eventually they'd realize they both fight for freedom, as well as for the helluvofit.

Omg I didn't even see this. /feelslikeshit

Thank you for the lovely fanart! I will most definitely try to finish Revolutionary.

Trust me, I thought along basically the same lines. Albeit, I would imagine, gorier in my mind.

I'll be posting my practice art here, since I'll be testing my tablet with TF2 people. Edit me, please, I need it, 'specially with shading.

>>Edit me, please, I need it

If it's critiques and advice you're after, you'd do well to head to the /workshop board, as it's specifically designed for helping shape up art.

The first thing I'd like to ask is how do you form your humans? Do you use any guidelines/skeletons/some form of geometric structure? I ask because going on this picture alone, the construction of the head, the formation of the face, and the way the head connects to the neck connects to the shoulders strikes me as linework drawn without a guide, that is, free drawn.

If that is how you're constructing your figures, I'd advise working with something as simple as a vague skeleton. It's easier to show than explain, so if need be, I can link a good example or two.

Now, two things stood out when I first saw the face. One being that the eyes and eyebrows are uneven, and not from perspective. The other being that as far as resembling the Sniper goes, you have the right idea for what his defining features are, but need to iron it out a little more. Sniper's face is long and thin, with a very tapered jaw, but you do have the nose length and the distance of the mouth from the nose in the right ballpark. Really, you just need some refining, and unfortunately, when digital comes in, that's where I'm not so good at advising.

Keep up, though, you do seem to, as I said, have an eye for what makes a character stand out; and I really do advise heading over to /workshop. There may be people there *far* better at explaining this stuff than I am.

here's some redlines, I hope you can make it out okay (sorry I tend to draw with pretty thick lines). also, I guess I ended up just redrawing this in my style. hopefully, this is helpful regardless. oops how does I redline???

when I first saw this I specifically thought of McCoy for some reason

the main changes I made were: lengthening the jaw, raising the hairline a little, I used some perspective lines on the face to readjust the eye placement, I used several model refs I found in /resources/ to get the shape of the facial profile down and the placement of the mouth and also the shape of the head (it's kind of long in the back). I also used these refs to set up the shoulders. the green lines are a few setup lines I used. it's a good idea to draw in a basic skeletal structure with balls and sticks and perspective lines to get the pose positioned before you flesh it in with anything, I don't know if you did that or not though. the outside lines of the nose should line up with the inside lines of the eyes and the center of the eyeball should line up with the outside edges of the mouth, unless the features are exaggerated. in sniper's case, his mouth is a little wider than this measurement.

oh and I just noticed I seem to have changed the perspective a little because I tend to favour lower angles, that's my mistake, sorry

a few things sniper-specific: if the hair in the back is too long it looks like a mullet. yours doesn't quite reach that point. however, it should line up approximately with the outside edge of the sideburn (or maybe just a little lower), which lines up with the lower edge of the ear. his jaw is sort of narrow... compare to a character like medic, who has a much more square jaw. it looks like sniper's jaw has that edge corner cut off. sniper's hairline is pretty high and his nose points slightly down with a continuous line (something I didn't realise for a long time haha but you seem to have picked up on this). his hair also has sort of a high strip down the middle, kind of like medic's but less exaggerated, and the back of his head (probably because of his hair) juts out pretty far to v

my style is in a really derp stage right now since i'm phasing myself out of anime. any help, any help at all is very much appreciated since i've apparently lost the ability to draw faces.

Go read JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, it's a nice stepping stone for anime-to-realistic.
(Part 7 is best for this kind of thing.)

It's good that you're moving away from what's comfortable, but you can't go from one style to the next. You need to know how to draw properly before you can develop your own style (which will come naturally).

So look up pictures of things and start drawing them. That's really the only advice I can give. Study anatomy and perspective and color and everything else. I know that's vague, and it's difficult, but you'll need to just start over fresh if you really want to leave anime behind (I did, it wasn't easy and I'm still learning a ton).

This is a Pok'emon/TF2 crossover by Kuromatsu that was posted on /vp/ and attacked by babby trolls and had little appreciation. So, I thought I'd share it with you guys since this place doesn't really have trolls I think, and can be more respected.

My work's not nearly as good as the brilliant specimens here, but I've had enough of lurking and I've decided to show you the only decent comic I have ever done in the entirety of my love of TF2.

But I'm making something and I don't want it to be shit. Yes, this was made in Paint. Ignore that fact. Also ignore the opaque glasses and lack of situational context. I need to know how weird this looks and what's wrong with it. So, could I get some help pretty please?

Major improvement with the waist. The calf on his right leg looks like it needs more curve but I'm not entirely sure. I don't know what other advice to give you, the proportions look good from my point of view but it's a shame you haven't gotten a third opinion.
>> No. 7365
It definitely looks a lot better. I'm liking the right foot, just the way it's bent/curved speaks to the struggle. I can picture how the tendons and muscles underneath would be flexing and straining as he pulls against the tentacle grabbing his leg.

Also, I love the tentacles. Okay, yes, yes, I always love tentacles, but even pre-detail, they have the right feeling of weight and strength and gracefulness.

I also think the calves could use a little more bulk/curve, just because those are some of the muscles he'd really be working when he runs, but yeah, there's been some clear improvement from the earlier drafts.

Actually, there are a couple places where the shading looks pretty darn good. I like the light and shadow on his shoulder/upper arm, and the left legs I can't find any shading problem with.

This is probably a bad thread choice for this sort of question, I don't know, maybe someone can direct me to a better thread/a place with some answers, but here goes: my tablets acting up in an odd way that I can't really say is broken. It's a bamboo pen and touch (wacom), but it's not responding to the pen, only to my fingers. Clicking the button on the tablet that'd normally turn touch off isn't helpful, because now it's acting like the back button for the internet. The other buttons on it are just generally acting like a mouse clicker. I've tried googling for a solution, but nothing came up that seemed to adress this particular problem. So, I'm just convinced that's it's not a grave malfunction so much as a different configuration. If anyone has any tips for making it work as I'd like again, I'd really appreciate it.
For now, cruddy Medic/Archimedes doodle. I apologise if this is in a bad section as a whole.

If replacing the pen nib doesn't work try re-installing/updating the driver. Best of luck!
>> No. 7373
I appreciate your tips and advice. Replacing the pen nib didn't resolve the issue and I'm reinstalling the software now. If that doesn't work, well, I'll just have to get re-acquainted with my old tablet. It's not the end of the world.
Thanks a bunch, though, you guys! I appreciate your willingness to help me out here.
>> No. 7374
...Aaand... Done! The tablet's responding to the pen again, pressure sensitivity's working and I can freely turn touch on and off with the appropriate button. Thank you guys so much! Sageing because this really doesn't need to be a bump.
(capcha: helsout rejoicing? Yes.)

So, right off the bat, I'd just like to say that I am NO artist. I do it for shits n' giggles, but I really have close to zero desire of improving. I'm a writer first and foremost. That's what I put all my stock into. So you can offer crit if you really want to, but don't expect results.

Second, I know that I draw in a horrible, retina burning, cartoony animu-like style, and I am SORRY. I try to do a little here and there to make it less awful, but it's nowhere near the quality you guys are used to.

Third, I don't have PS, soooooo I've made a ton of crude edits (especially on my church pamphlets) to keep the public from seeing spoilers (real AND fake), and to protect identities and the like. There is also a fucking annoying solid black line my scanner puts on the far right of all of my pictures. I hate it, but have no clue how to edit it out or make it stop. TL;DR: sorry for the eyesores.

Despite my shortcomings, I hope you guys will enjoy.

Engineer be trollin'. I giggled when I saw this, despite the source material, mostly because of the rage guy and troll faces.(Not a whole lot more to say, sorry!)

Thanks, Zigzagoon! (I'm gonna call you Ziggy from now on, because I'm boss like that.)

So, uploads will be kinda sporadic because my scanner decided it'd be a great effing idea to blow everything up to three times its original size. Probably more.

The filesizes were so huge, the chan wouldn't allow me to upload them. I'm currently trying to work this out with a friend, but it'll probably be slow. Currently, we just found out a way to get a file that was a whopping 8.7 MB big to about 1.5 MB. which is still too big for the chan. FAWK.
