Earlier today myself and a couple of Thu'um box buddies were discussing about artwork/drawings. I mentioned that I lost all of my artwork or I just didn't know where they were. After half an hour of searching, I manage to find a couple unfinished drawings.

My pencil artwork.

Nice drawings. You actually look like an elf I've seen in a game, though I can't remember which.

Do I spy a Shiva drawing? From FFX?
And those are really good.

Thanks! I also thought it looked like a video game character, maybe not even an elf. Kind of looked like it was made by the same artist who did concept art for FFVIII.

Bingo! Shiva indeed.
Thanks!

nice wolf there.
But i think i couldnt do that technique without outlines, tho i might try it.

I got bad news from me tho. I didnt get mine back. So they will be lost in history.

@Sordak, well without outline really only works when you have reference. Drawing round objects for proportion still works best for me when I design characters.

It's unfortunate you didn't find yours.

@Khadiith, thanks! It seems like the wolf is the favorite. That was a tough one for me because the reference I was using was a size of a thumbnail literally. I had to fill the details and I had to draw it while riding the bus. Ahhh memories.

These are very beautiful! I wish my pencil drawings came out that good!

I think that the wolf was my favorite! :D


O TES, why hast thou entranced me so? That reality is naught but a fragment, as I bask in your splendour and commune in your depths for as long as this mortal life shall carry me.
MY ART! CLICKIE!!

Thanks! I still wish I'm as talented as you though. I can only draw using a pencil, eraser and paper.

But you are! The truth is I CANNOT draw at all with just a pencil and paper! At least, I can't make anything that is, at all...realistic. xD

Well thanks! Sometimes too realistic is not a good thing though, I've made several realistic portraits in the past and others didn't even realize that they were drawings, they thought they were real pictures.

Nowadays I make them to where they still look like pencil drawings by not smoothing out the grainy and rough textures.

Someday I would like to learn how to integrate my work into Photoshop though. I want to be able to make images like yours.

OMG Taratadu, you are so immensely talented!! And you and Najla are a cute couple, if the gift portrait is of her and the elf is you. Adorable.

The first drawing is amazing, I can't even imagine how you do that without strong lines, but it is beautiful. I like all of them including the wolf. I love your ingame character creations. I think that my favorite is the Breton Mage, running a close second is the Orismer.

I liked the artwork on Najla's profile page too. Please keep at it!

You extrapolated on your skill of drawing hands, that's a feat in its self.
