View Full Version : Loren's Art Thread

After lurking around the place, I am in awe of the artists around RPA and as such felt rather embarrassed to post images that weren't up to par to what they've drawn. But then, after some encouragement, I did, and here they are.
My art dump can be located here (http://markingdays.tumblr.com/). Most of them are mine unless I say otherwise. >A<
Arghh. I don't really like this one. >A< I enjoyed the initial sketching, but after doing the face, I started getting way too lazy, which started affecting my view on her proportions. e____e Don't even wanna look at it sometimes. Estimated time is roughly around four hours.
Random quickie headshot. I was trying to experiment doing lashes - first attempt sucks, but I want to try again soon. ♥ It was fun doing it, even though I'm not too fond of the end result. Estimated's an hour.
Despite this being a stick chibi and a doodle, I really like this one. *U* Redhead wearing hot pink is so kyot. |D Estimated time's twenty minutes.
Another quickly done one, roughly fifteen to twenty minutes. .u.
Last but definitely not least is my favorite fullbody drawing. ♥ Rather proud of this one, thinking of coloring it soon. It took me roughly 6 hours. I am slow.
Hurr, so thank you very much for viewing! ♥

I love this!
Hooray! Someone who takes as long to draw as me! ;D
Your drawings are awfully cute though. Thank you for sharing them with us~

Thank you both~! ♥ That means a lot.

Please post more. Your drawings are really cute and I would love to see more of them! Do you have any more colored ones?
You have great style!
Please put up more works :)

Lúthien, I'm afraid I only have only chibis colored. D: *is too lazy*
Birthday present for a friend. ♥ Fear my tired handwriting. Roughly four hours. >A>
Lazy coloring is lazy, which explains the pillow shading. u____u Sorry. An hour and a half?
Lazy style is lazy again. >A> Twenty minutes. xDD
Ten minute headshot. >A< This was when I forgot how to use the program and had to doodle to get it right again.
Bust in which I was playing with the water tool. 'u' Such pretty effects~ used it on the skin.

I love your art, and the improvement over three years. It's inspiring to see an artist do well after practice.

Thank you very much. C: I know what you mean. I occasionally pass by these improvement memes from my favorite artists and I am simply amazed by their work. *U* I want to be able to show that I've improved, even by the smallest bit. ♥

Coffee. These are wonderful.
The best way to show this to you will require you to find 5 other people (6 people total, you included) - make a circle. Bro-fist each other and extend your thumbs towards the sky.
Friendship + bro-fist + thumbs up = Your art.

. . . you make me feel too loved. ♥ And please, everyone call me Loren/Ren. *U*
Twenty minutes, tops! Glitter gel pen, sketching was done with a silver color, inking with green. I want to redraw this digitally. 'u'
Crappy quality, sorry. u___u I think the glitter reflected the scanner light.

Thank you Kris. C:

My unfinished documented digital drawing process. It's already late so I'm off to bed.
C: Hullo there - here it is, how I draw digitally. 8D Warning, image heavy, I guess? |D
not zoomed in so I can see the whole of the canvas
done on a different layer from the BG layer
rather large canvas size
Programs (left to right, top to bottom): Pixia, PaintTool SAI, Shi-chan
(Optional) Refined Sketch
done dependent on how clean the original sketch was (the cleaner, the less needed)
slightly darker shade/different color than rough sketch
different layer (rough sketch layer opacity brought down to 20-50%)
a bit of zooming in
details are added
Blue = layer you're working on
Light Blue = your mouse is hovering over it
White = neither hovering over it nor are you working on that layer; you're not doing anything with that layer

Now isn't that just adorably-awesome?
Interresting programs you use there Loren. Only know Pixia, never heard about the others. I'm a photoshop man myself. Might want to check those out at some point.

http://i55.tinypic.com/2ngesqu.pngGives off an Alice in Wonderland theme, doesn't it? I wanted to try drawing smaller faces and giving the hair a super big and fluffy factor. I think the fact that the head's too big for the shoulder's cute, though anatomically incorrect. The neck's too long, but I realized it too late into the coloring stage to change it.
I wanted to make the eyebrows thicker, but every time I tried, it looked off. u__u I gave up because it was time to leave school. xD
I had problems coloring this. After finishing shading the skin, when I tried shading the hair, it started looking off. ;_; I gave up for a day, opened it again, and asked for help from my gun-enthusiast friend. His suggestions actually helped - he said that instead of making the change in shade drastic, make it soft. However, I thought it wasn't bright/pretty enough, so thank god for hue and saturation adjustments in PaintTool SAI. C: Same goes for layer clipping - lineart was originally black, changed it to brown for a softer feel.
Also, because I really like this one, I might replace the old tutorial I was working on and replace it with this one. Plus I'm really loving it, so I might do more in this style. //actually working on another one.
http://i52.tinypic.com/e0sz7t.pngThe neck's too long again, but wat da heck, it's just a sketch anyway. xD Same goes for the neck down - I know it's off. I'm adjusting it right now. C8
