Hmm... so many different kinds of art at different periods... Great work, Tei-sama!
Thank you, YL! I'm working on an awesome piece now that kind of spans all of the Mario RPGs (except M&L:PiT, which didn't yeild anything worthwhile to me, IMO). It's based on this fanfic I'm writing that also ties into The Subspace Emissary. ;D
You guys have all posted great work. Maybe I will create one someday, but I need to draw some more!!
Kohta, you should totally start by posting that picture of Count Bleck you drew me! It would be an awesome way to break into the DA scene.
Creativity and itelligence have a high collilation?
More likely that playing videogames from a young age leads to a desire to be creative. Or perhaps people obsessed with lists need a creative output to offset that! I dunno Doubt it's intelligence based though.
I have no idea. I feel a bit left out. Not much of drawler. I can do digital media, but that are good as you guys can draw.
Well, you're not going to get any better without practice. My first characters were stickmen. Granted I was 4 years old at the time, but I still had merchandising plans ;D
First off, try copying - replicating drawings you like. Then take the same character and try to work out what they would look like doing something different. You can use a pose you found elsewhere, but shifting the details around is key.
Sketches usually start as really rough, little more than stickmen with bulbous bits.
Then you start filling in the shapes. It's good to look up some tutorials on how to do this well. I have a bunch of books, but there's plenty of decent free tutorials online.
You don't fill in the details until much later. Don't be fooled - it's generally a bad habit to start by drawing the eyes. I used to do that Still do when drawing Angry Penguin ;D
I had this cartoon called 'Electroman'. He was made completely out of basic shapes, and he turned out being a good character! What I'm saying is, if you want to make a character that's NOT a stick figure, it's best to start by making the character out of basic shapes.
Or you could challenge yourself (like TEi said), as I do now
Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.

Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.

Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.
