Oh god I can't art.

Post by forgetmenot » Wed Dec 11, 2013 4:27 am

So I decided to do a proper visualization of Kagami from over this way, yonder, and I ended up with this. I don't have a tablet and spent far too much time on it. I'm more or less happy with how it turned out but that's solely because my taste exceeds my talent, which is not much in either case. I learned that I basically have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to digital art so I just used a bunch of reference images from the internet while drawing. Anyhoo. Fun times.

Here it is:

That's actually quite neat, if a lilbit clumsy. If that's not tracing, then definitely draw more.

Wow, thanks! Yeah I know it's a bit clumsy. I definitely rushed the line work. Buuut I guess I got bitten by the art bug because I'm already halfway through another drawing. :roll:

I guess Kagami's feeling flirty? Either that or I just got too lazy to draw pants.

Well she's winking.
I don't think she's wearing pants because she doesn't need them for what she's pla-*shot*
I write take a look, would you kindly?
I also draw, kind of.

Wow, I still hate how I am a terrible artist. That pic is pretty amazing, and looks exactly like I imagined her. As for the second one..... When do we get to read that scene?

You know, I was just about to make a smartass comment about how Kagami has two right feet, then I noticed one of her legs is crossed over the other.
Whoops :lol:

I actually swapped her feet in the first line sketch of this due to the fact that she has her legs crossed. Only realized it after I had already started coloring, haha. :lol:

I don't know why, but even though you state in the fic that she has auburn hair I always imagine her with white hair like Rika's. Anyway, I think these are great. Way beyond anything I've ever drawn at least.

First one's really cute and I like the kind of "rough" lineart you drew there.

Just stumbled upon this, I like it! I pictured here as skinnier, like a Rika build. Glad to see I got the hair right though! :D

You can't art? Are you sure about that? :lol:
I can't really choose a favourite. Probably Hanako. But then who's second?! Rin? Shizune? Lilly? Emi? I can't. I just can't.
Also, little fact: I cry REALLY easily when it comes to entertainment. KS? Got me a few times. Most anime with even a slight amount of sadness? The tears will flooooow.
