Okay then, first time posting on this site ever. I've been lurking here for a long time now, and now that I'm finally posting something, I don't really know what to say. So I won't say much, then.

Let's just start out with a doodle for now, I guess.

This one's a WIP, but w/e, let's post it here too. I've only got the lineart done as I've gotten this tablet recently and Paint Tool SAI is like alien technology to me right now. Like, I seriously don't know how to color on there yet. It's sad, I know.

It's 3 AM over here and guess who hasn't gone to bed, yet. It's me.

I'm working on another thing too. I'm going to try learning more about this program using this one, (mostly for the coloring and stuff). I'm posting it while I still have sleep-brain so that way I'll actually finish it when I wake up.

Medic, no, you're gonna give him pink-eye.

Why is Medic licking Sniper's eye, you ask? Probably the same reason I googled what would happened if you licked someone's eye, idk. :V

How the fuck do I background

As you can see, still a work in progress. Wanted to post something, though.
I like the coloring for it so far, though.

By the way, apparently eye herpes is a thing. It'd be in your best interest to just take my word for it and not look it up, but w/e, I'm not your mom.

I just put a gradient or s/t in the background, if the background isn't relevant/the picture's too zoomed-in to justify adding one. Trying to do that less often, though.

Thank you, kind anon. Backgrounds are hard for me in traditional means of artwork, and this program barely makes it easier for me. Maybe it's because I'm god-awful.

D'awww. The sentiment is reciprocated. And don't call yourself bad. Don't worry about it, everything takes time.

I can give you some pointers, if you'd like?

I found a shading tutorial, guys.
It still looks pretty bad, though.

Haven't been posting in a while, so here's a doodle from doodle or die I thought you guys would appreciate. Stay frosty.

Tempted to make a thread on the AMERICAN fanart board, but Imma wait a bit until I'm pleased with my grasp of human anatomy.

I laffed. To be honest, I've never really thought what any of the mercs would think if they stumbled upon porn honouring them. Interesting food for thought, mhmm..

Good stuff, by the way! I was going to ask if you've put time in with life drawing? Sounds dry as balls, I know, but while your linework is decent and you obviously have a good sense of transferring imagined poses and expressions to paper, a lot of your forms seem a little... warped? Doing some form studies, playing more with colour and shading, and experimenting with different styles of depicting shadows (eg: hatched lines vs colour blocking vs smooth gradients) will help you convincingly depict solid forms, even when doing simple lineart.

Hope that helps, and glad to have some fresh blood around here. Keep it up!

Thank you very much. I'll try the form & shading practices and such.

Funny thing is, I used to do life drawing and practice realism long ago. Don't know what happened, could be due to the fact that the environment I was in wasn't the most encouraging type. I still couldn't color at all back then, though, so that hasn't changed.

I'm very glad I was given a crit, though. Made my night, tbh. Will try to make my work a little less warped.
