Once upon a time, in a place where oranges and green apples were like gold and silver and Gold and Silver were the names of two pirates conjoined at the hip, sort of technically making them only one Pirate - as far as legalities go, there was a little boy who was lonely and sad. All the boys and girls and teachers at school teased him, and his parents would laugh and throw hammers at his feet and elbows. Even the mail man use to sneak into his window late at night and then punch him in the face. This little boy had a good heart though and an optimistic perspective and outlook. He decided he would buy some pencils and draw all sorts of weird and cool, and pretty art for all the people he liked. He would change the world with his art, he would try to make the world a better place. At least he might have. I tripped him up, stomped on his foot and hand breaking both, and then stole his box of pencils. With those stolen pencils I randomly stabbed pieces of paper hoping to cure my lazy boredom. The following is the consequences of that boredom (and act of violence)  RIP random kid whose box of pencils I stole. Sunset, Dragon, Snow, Flower.  

Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman
This is probably the best color (colour) piece of artwork I have. Done. Ever. Like all the pictures I draw this was done for someone (someone pretty amazing and cool) I am a pretty big fan of Wonder Woman as well so I had more than a few reasons to try and make this one not absolutely horrible. I don't think it looks as much like Diana as I would have liked. I think I did the eyebrows wrong. i guess thats my fault for using characters from Gossip Girl as reference lol - more seriously I sort of just wanted a strong, confident, calm looking Wonder Woman looking down at us the view, sort of like a serene protector cradling the world in her hands type theme. Powerful without being aggressive? Strong without being violent? Still, I think maybe I made her look too calm. Maybe needs more of an aggressive smile. Anyway - background is unfinished, but didn't want to overcomplicated the picture. Was thinking of adding some marble angels or gods or etc etc  This is an original piece (though I did not design this cool variation outfit of Wonder Woman's)  
 
Oh, coloured in a computer digital art software called GIMP - no really, I am not making that up - its free and its like a free cheap poor man's version of Photoshop. I recommend it though if you like free stuff. 
 
Rikku
Rikku
         
Vaniile 
Vaniile 
Okay, well above aren't original drawings - they are characters from Final Fantasy game series - I really just drew them from game booklets. lol So not much to talk about creative process wise. I take ages to draw as well, oh and naturally both of above are for a friend - coincidentally one that loves both above characters. Both characters (Rikku and Vanille) are pretty tough despite their stature, super fiery and feisty, warm, loyal, funny, intelligent, creative etc etc etc OR did I just describe the person I drew them for? Who knows... also by the way, I don't personally recommend learning from drawing from magazines, Google images etc  unless you balance that with learning from observation and anatomy books. Way cooler, and better to foster your own unique style.  
  
Nocturne
Nocturne
This one is for one of, if not my best friend, and probably the best pencil sketch I have done. Ever. I prefer working with pencils. I love 4B and 6B pencils. I use the tip of an eraser to shade, blend, smudge because I don't have the skill or patience to shade the proper way lol - and yah, even though I am a huge Exiles - Nocturne and Nightcrawler fan, I ended up screwing up how many fingers she has. (only should have two fingers and one thumb) but man, how do you like.. even use a computer with only four fingers? Maybe somethings man was never meant to know. Anyway, was hard finding a good reference of Talia's tan/brown uniform she wore, so I sort of complied, added a few variations of the one she had. Also way out of my comfort zone drawing a character with no clear visible pupils. Ugh, anyway, the fun in drawing superhero characters yes? All sorts of interesting challenges. Cool character for a cool and amazing person. 
 
Okay, anyway, I wanted to create/make an art thread - mainly because I have lots of drawings I have done and will invariably do for many here at CV - and all of it will probably be put here, and most of it is going to be much worse than above to be honest lol - uhm, thank you for randomly finding your way here?!?! 
 
The following few smaller thumbnails are of assorted random pieces, sketches, doodles. Not all of it is original - rule of thumb, if it looks good I probably copied it from a cover or panel lol - below X-23 pic is by Mike Choi originally, Girl With a Dragon Tattoo - that is the cover of shockingly The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo book. Oh, and that Emma was for a CV Emma contest and... Nightwing was for a dear friends Birthday and... Serafina was for a good friend as well. (is unfinished currently)

Oh, and lastly but not least, thank you to Tonis, Roxanne, M.S Feather, Hawkeye, Mr Unknown, Cosmo, theGoldenOne, Dark Huntress, Purps, Rogue Marie, Typing Kira, THB, Lykopis, RT, and any and all (if I didn't mention you it was because I didn't want to embarrass you with association with me lol) who have been nice and complimentary, supportive and encouraging towards me/any paper I defiled with my attempts at art, even if it was just a nice/kind word. Very appreciated

@SC: damn man, as always when I see your work I'm finding my jaw drop. So much impact with the lights and shadows, and every lady looks beautiful and has a look in their eyes like there glowing bright.

I have to think you must have had some photography influence in your background, or it really just comes natural but it certainly shows in how you render your characters.

Either way I hope you keep adding beauties like these to the vine world cause this is what I really love to see :)

Excellent art, excellent writing, excellent you. No other way to put it since it's already a well known universal law (The Law Of SC).

Just in case I don't associate myself with myself for fear of embarrassment (of either of me or myself *_@) so that would just cancel out in my case(or my case).

Thank you for the all too kind words. Oh, and that thing with the eyes, yeah.. that would be lack of souls. All my drawings.. they have no souls? Thats what the glowing bright is? Either that all my drawings are about to go Super Saiyan?

*big smile* Thanks cattlebattle! As you know I use to be a hairdresser in the Prussian army. Sometimes, really the whole point of my drawing, is really, just about the hair? The rest is just the ends to the means? Still, your words are too kind, and I should stop going to Barber shops and stealing the hair they have... but what can I say? I'm a freak, I'm a sculpture, I am a cloud and a reflection, I AM AN ARTISTE!

I've got to say I really don't think you should resort to false modesty. All of these sketches are very good. You should own up to just how talented you are because I and the rest of the Comic Vine community think these are pretty darn fantastic. Although I really enjoyed your narrative set up for the sketches. Good story and Awesome sketches. Nocturne was my favorite.

Eh, I am not really that good an artist. I mean, I am really, really, really, really slow. I am a better art tutor than artist. lol - I wish I could be a professional artist, but I would have to learn to be more expressive and not spend like 3 hours trying to get an ear right, before ripping up the entire drawing and then eating it then bitting the ends of all my 4B pencils because if I don't my soul will float away. 0_0   
 
Thank you for the nice sentiment *red* 
 
@lykopis said:

Aww - well now, isn't this nice to see? See what little boys with bruised elbows and feet can do when they learn to turn evil and become thieves?

Your artwork is a visual dessert, SC. And we gorge on it. Just so, so beautiful. :)

PS. Yes. Canada is pretty cool. Its getting close to freezing at the moment so thanks for rubbing it in....

^_^


I'll make sure next time I draw a character they will be in a bikini then? Since this is a comic site I will have the character fighting ninja polar bear in a church in the middle of a desert nothing weird about that at all? Wonder Woman...? Starfire....? Ah I know? Wonder Woman's not the only Canadian around, how about Wolverine? *grin*

Thank you PowerHerc! One day I want to try a Hercules and Big Barda sketch! 
 
  
Should add more. 
 
I like Red Sonja, I have no issues with her attire, I view her as a more fantasy character than realistic type (all characters have a bit of both in them) so like and think her classic look works and is nice, but I also wanted to try and give her a more practical armour, because I sort of like drawing armour and well - but also done for a friend. One day I might try and digitally recolour so its her older school look. Oh, and had some fun with some effects as well (red glow just on drawing and a red background)
