Toadgamer makes some crap for everyone to see.
« on: April 26, 2019, 02:42:12 PM »
So, I joined the Fan Creations forum.

If you were in the community in January 2018, you might remember that I had this ugly Photoshop as my avatar back then.



But, today I decided to give Krita a try. I tried to recreate my OC, and here's the result:

If you like it, then maybe in May I'll consider setting it as my avatar, considering I didn't change my theme back to Toadgamer for a while now.

EDIT: Fixed colouring:

I think you should get a Wacom for Krita, hope you put that on your wishlist! Believe me, it'll make drawing a lot easier.

Hey TG...

I see you're using layers... and it's a wise thing to do. I'd say you might want to experience with the curve tool a bit to be able to draw smoother surfaces.

For now, though, this is definitely WAY better than the first thing I have ever done on digital.

Curve tool is fine, but you should practice with Wacom and stroke stabilizers (Krita has stabilizer tools), and practice drawing with the shoulder rather than the wrist.

So I was thinking of drawing something new. I tried but for some reason today I don't really feel like it. Maybe I'll work on something that'll take time and effort another day.

In the meantime, enjoy this sprite of me I just did.

Oooooooookay! I just finished a drawing!

It's far from perfect, but I might as well change it to my Sig for July. Maybe one day I'll recreate this image when I'll have more talent. But right now this is the best I can do.

Hey, it's not just Toad's fingers.

Finger in general are the bane of an artist's existence.

Also, something about the head's proportion with the body feels kinda... off.
Everything looks off. Not saying I could do any better, but it definitely looks worthy of your the title of the thread.

In his defense by TG standards that head actually looks pretty good, and so does the background which I believe he did himself.

I mean he shaded it. I know that. He might as well have done it entirely from scratch.

AND it's his first time shading. For a first time, it sure was better than my first time.

Keep following in those baby footsteps TG. Keep doing that.

remember that shading denotes parts that are facing away from your light source, so you should only shade where youd want something to not be intended to be seen head on

right now the shading makes it look like your torso is caving in and im assuming that wasnt your intention. try shading more on the edges and less in the middle like that. shading is a difficult concept to grasp but im sure you can improve on it more to make your drawings pop and look more alive :bowser:

also dont feel compelled to use shading on everything, sometimes it isnt necessary, especially for more cartoony styles

Yo, constructive criticism is one thing, but if you feel the need to be an ass, it's time to step out.
