It will (probably) get better with practice

Post by azarga » Sun Feb 08, 2015 10:51 am

Just decided to post a somewhat lazy sketch of after-graduation Shizune being somewhat alone and somewhat sad because reasons.

I am by no means an artist, but I'm working on improving what little skill I have. So I thought posting on some forums might be a good start, to maybe accumulate feedback. And KS forums are great, cozy.
Yes, I am years away from being good. But that doesn't stop people from posting here, rite?

Don't mind the different style, I've been trying to somewhat mimic wokada for some time now, and it sticks when I don't have different source material before my eyes.
And sorry for crap paper and photo instead of scan. I'm not at home and equipment here is rather limited. Also image size was around 2500x1900, I hope it scaled acceptably.

Like it or not, I will post some more around next week.Unless I get banned.

not that bad at all, mate! :) Nice drawing
Like stupid, silly doodles with no point? You've come to the right place, friend :^)
I also occasionally write oneshots. Why not have a skimread?

Hell, that's actually pretty good man. I mean sure, not exactly "world class" level but better than you think, I think ;)

Thank you. Yeah, I totally agree about "not exactly world class" not exactly, like "by far", thanks for kind wording btw, but I have intention and resolve to get better, even if it takes considerable amount of time.

That's the fuckin' spirit! :D Too many people are afraid to put time and effort into drawings, myself included, even if it could make a huge difference. I'll be looking forward to see what else you can do! :)

Slow progress ... with an Emi drawing. Does not compute... (Shouldn't it be fast progress. :wink:)

Looks good, though.
I like all the girls in KS, but empathize with Hanako the most.

Awesome! Keep it up. We don't have to have amazing technical skill to make something worthwhile. I mean, that's the goal . . but everything we make on our way to that destination should be valued.

Thanks for the encouraging words. :o

I feel like I probably should share my progress (since there is some), but majority of it is traditional media and more importantly - not Katawa related. I will draw something relevant as soon as I come up with more or less interesting idea.
