Well, since there seems to be no recent art threads, maybe I should start. I won't post too much because I'm typically closeted about my work. Part of the whole social anxiety sort of thing and always thinking it's not good enough.

I will put links because I feel the pictures are quite large. They are all imgur links. I guess I’ll spoiler them as well Incase no one wants to click a link, but I hope they don’t end up too big lmao.


Beach Boys
Too bad the original Sai file was lost with my old HDD so I can't add onto it anymore :/ Just a self-serving picture of my OC boys in towels at the beach. Why are they so perfectly toned? Because I wanted something I found good looking. Why draw your own characters in such a setting if they aren't good looking?

RP Art
Here's a picture I did for an older RP. Tried a different style here.

Gift Art
I did for someone I was RPing with a while back.

My FFXIV Character
Not much to say about it. My main three classes, well, DRK is my MAIN because edge boi, but the other two are side classes.

Star Signs
A group sketch of characters from one of my story worlds. It's shitty because they are all done on the same page, no layer magic at all. Just pencil and paper, but that's how ALL my work starts. ALL of it.

NSFW
You guys are probably the only people who will ever be shown something like this, haha.

NSFW Asimov
I’m bad at drawing genitals because I almost never do but I tried haha.

Dryad
One of the fantasy races in one of my story worlds. As someone into MxM, I’m not very good at drawing women so I tend to avoid drawing them as much as I can.

There, I shared. Hopefully this encourages some other people to share their stuff, too!

Some more things. A pairing I like of my own characters. I just finished these after working on them for two days. Three if you count the actual pencil and paper sketch. The atmosphere was the hardest part of this picture. Well, that and the fact that I tend to draw all my characters with similar proportions so putting them next to each other on the same couch was quite...difficult.

This one is a normal version of the two.

This one reflects one of the RP’s I’m in. Same guy but with different hair and a different power which is why his eyes are creepy.

New sketch, Jesus my hand hurts lol. Shading is serious business. Digital is less strenuous. Maybe. Perspective is my worse enemy, so I tried drawing some poses. I’m rather proud of how this came out. Motivation doesn’t come easy.

Here is hoping it doesn’t look like absolute ass since I took a picture. Might look like trash in a browser but I’m on mobile so meh. I’ll reupload and fix it all Sunday when I finally go home.

My OC’s Taurus (Siegfried), Gemini (Shiro and Mira merged together), Scorpio (Fei Long), and Sagittarius. (Even after over ten years I still don’t have a real name for some of them lol)

Link for more Pixels. (Best I can do I’m afraid)

Fresh pieces because inspiration happened.

Divine

Colored and finished version of the Taurus, Gemini, Scorpio, and Sagittarius that I posted above. Sagittarius is a bastard, he doesn't deserve the perfect ass I accidentally gave him. >:/

There goes my motivation. I should really get back to RPing.

Sorta NSFW of my OC Maverick. I just wanted to draw him without his usual perma scowl, ended up drawing this. Feels weird as hell to draw him with a smile. Just doesn't feel right. XD

And of course I was looking through my pictures and found one I hadn't colored and decided it needed to be done. Pyro and Cryo. I actually like the way they came out, especially Pyro. XD I drew the sketch last year, but colored it this year. Since I'm terrible at drawing girls, Cryo's face feels generic as all fuck. :/

I think my art spree is officially over. The inspiration is gone. Fucking tablet piece of shit without a screen >:/ I need to invest in a SCREEN tablet so I can see what the fuck I'm doing without having to RELY on just tracing pencil and paper images because hand eye coordination is DIFFICULT. Sorry, I'm fucking angry. This is what happens when the inspiration fades, there is no patience left for failure and I get irrationally mad at everything I do in my work. This is why I've been delaying posts, because this inspiration doesn't last long and god knows when it will come back.


My final piece for a while. If I upload anything further it will probably be trashy sketches until I can be fucked to color again.
I wanted a smug yet creepy older man here, and I feel I both succeeded AND failed. My creativity is dumpster so creating unique faces and such isn't easy, and I have an image in my head, but the brain only has a blurry fragmented image that you can't actually comprehend. Same for everything, hands, the whole works. I know what I WANT, but translating that to paper is almost impossible because too much information is lost from the brain to my hand. The best way to explain is to think of someone you know, someone you see everyday. Imagine their face. NOW, pick out EVERY fucking detail. What, there are no details? You cannot focus on any PARTICULAR part of that face? Of course not, the brain is stupid and doesn't process actual images in your thoughts, just fragments of images. Same thing for my art, too much is lost in translation.
So, I was trying a new program for this. Clip Studio Paint is p good, but I still had to export as PSD and use Paint Tool SAI to do the hair, which isn't even obvious due to my dumpster lighting comprehension. That, and the fact that it's WHITE hair makes a big difference here. Sai has a nice bristle brush that makes for decent hair. This line art was very soft compared to usual. Using the pressure and drawing lightly really helps the hands, otherwise I strain too much. Most of that strain comes from the fact that my hand is actually SLIGHTLY shaky so I cave to work harder to make steady lines. :/

If I make any misc sketches I might add them later, but nothing color until my patience returns.

Or, here's one. Wow, I managed to make something.
This took far longer than I thought because I can't create clothes worth shit. Seriously, I am a TERRIBLE designer when it comes to clothes. That's probably why I usually draw him in casual shit like t-shirts.

More OC's. Left is mine, one on the right is someone else's from an RP, but I wanted to give a face to her. I should make her prettier. From all the shit I've posted it's clear I only draw men. Can't draw women worth shit.

Adalric looks more generic than I'd have like however. :/ If curious, I've posted Adalric's father in here somewhere. I think I called his Taurus? (That's his rank, they seldom go by their real names)

Wowee, I grew minor motivation. Also, feet are CANCER. I had to look for reference for the food on the right, and even then it was DIFFICULT. I think I'll give Jackie here some combat boots. She SHOULD have gun holsters all over her as well.

Value edit: Have some more.
More OC's from an RP. Can't draw children worth shit. Also can't draw dresses. I'm the most uncreative person when it comes to designing clothes in general. :/

One character from this family is missing because I haven't gotten a description of them yet.


I colored them. Wow.

Whoa, art. Inspired by one of my RP's of course. Trying to draw each OC side character.




Well, I did something recently I guess. Hooray.

Unfinished piece here, but that's ok. I'm just super proud of the perspective of the head on the right.
Didn't use black lines on that one so it has a softer look.

About time I did an updated version of my FF14 char. I get WAY too detailed with these. My poor wrist. The Forgiven set is pretty nice with the black and golds. The sword is the level 71 Deepgold Claymore dyed with Bone White? (on the yellow spectrum) for those who are curious. Died this way the blade looks like it's a part of the Forgiven set of Fending. Armor is not my strong suit. XD


I'll color it...Someday. XD

EDIT!

Done at last. What an undertaking. I'm satisfied with the results, and it's probably my best picture yet. I love my Dark Knight.
