Availability/Skill level of artists
« on: November 09, 2010, 09:24:49 pm »
Before I put out a ridiculous request, I wanted to know the skill level of the artists here in drawing sketches and stuff.
So, like, for example, drawing a realistic-looking person.
If something like this is reasonable, I'll post my request here, otherwise, this topic can be deleted.

I swear someone posted a portrait of someone he drew a while ago, but I forgot who it was and if he's still around anymore.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Well do you mean pixel drawing or like a legit drawing on paper or what?

Edit:
DJ, I think you're talking about Shmibs, but I can't remember correctly.

Well, my request would be for something I could use online (as an avatar, actually), but I would want it to fairly detailed looking (so maybe a drawing on paper, then scan it?).

Have you checked out DeviantArt yet? They might have something you want or like.

I searched on google images, and it didn't really have what I'm looking for.  Do DeviantArt images show up on google?

EDIT: ooh, 5/6 >:D. :P

Some might but I doubt it. You'd have to search DeviantArt Directly. What is it you're looking for?

Are you referring to this?

i love drawing portraits. i lack any sort of imagination, however, and so would need a reference.
oh, and dj: i dont believe i've ever posted anything i've drawn here before. here's an example of an old one\/

Ya, that was my bad. It was Happybobjr I was thinking of, not you, Shmibs. Sorry.

just wondering if you decided to take this elsewhere, mride (and if there are any really awesome sketchORZ in the community)

Well, after several variations of my search on deviantART, I didn't really find what I was looking for.  I'll put this out there and see what you all come up with.
So, this is the closest I came, so I'll use that as a base.  The human part is good, but maybe show the rest of the legs.  As for the wings, I would prefer bat/dragon wings.  I'll see if I can find a good example.
So, I would like this to be my avatar, so it needs to fit reasonably in that space.  I don't care if it's pencil or full color.
The character should be completely visible (no background and and limbs in drawing), and facing forwards, or a little turned to the right or left.
If anyone wants an extra challenge, try drawing a jacket on the figure.
If this is too hard, I apologize.  This doesn't need to be perfect or prize-winning amazing.
