    This is the place to put doodles, sketches, and other pieces of visual art that aren't meant to be seriously critiqued.

    Personally, I'm going to try to post in this thread more than I ever have before, as I clumsily try to figure out this horrible thing called the human body.

    Varkarrus I have class

    When I get home I'll upload my silly little WIP of 4 different castlevania characters about to take on Dracula. It's pretty cool. Except I totally screwed up on Shanoa.

    Inex: It's nice to see that you're practicing feet, a lot of people avoid them outright and that's a shame.

    I'll play too, here is a sketch I'm in the process of cleaning up for my maybe someday forum adventure:

    "THESE HANDS ARE TOO HARD, i'm just gonna put them in pockets"

    "FEET? hahahaha nope everyone gets giant boots instead"

    but then i don't actually do those things

    and terezi is one of my favorite of those doodles, it came out really good >:]

    Design a character? POUCHES FOR EVERYONE!

    Someday I'm going to make a superhero called Pouchman and his superpower is that he has a lot of pouches and also invisible feet and hands

    I think every time Rob Liefield draws anything, he intends to go up to decent character design with the intent to punch it square in the face.

    Tetsuya Nomura toes the line, but he often gets the pass simply because he can actually draw and because excessive belts and zippers are actually pretty common in Japan. He drew Lulu in FFVII with a giant belt skirt to challenge the CG and character modelers. Sometimes they get can stupid, but generally I think the Japanese RPG fetish for belts and zippers isn't nearly as bad as Liefield's fetishes for all the stupid things he does.

    That and the fact that Nomura can design relatively normal looking characters. For example, I'd say the characters from TWEWY are actually all really good designs.

    the thing about the TWEWY characters is that he had to draw characters that were dressed a bit more realistically because it was set in present day in Shibuya. the oddness about their outfits is explained away by how much Shibuya cares about fashion

    his designs would be better if he kept them more simple like the TWEWY ones

    e: also Nomura actually dresses a bit like his characters with the weird belts and zippers and accessories

    ahaha Superboy's face

    that is the grumpiest Superboy I have ever seen

    at least the belt is more practical than fighting crime in jeans and a t-shirt

    The jeans a tee shirts crime fighter killed one of my favorite things about superheroes: Watching them fight in their civvies.
    To me there was something all the more thrilling about watching someone dressed as an ordinary person suddenly punch a car or leap twenty feet into the air. It actually gave me a bit of thrill to see, Hell if Clark put on the tights I probably wouldn't own 7 seasons of Smallville. Now every teen hero is doing it and it no longer seems special or like we're breaking any secret, unspoken rules. It's a bit upsetting really.

    Yeah, I agree with you. I mean, when it only happens sparingly, it's more of a "hey that guy looks normal OH GOD JESUS HE JUST PUNCHED OUT A SKYSCRAPER" effect. Or, like, "Oh no! He's not in costume! Is he still going to save the day? BOOM, OF COURSE HE IS, SUCKERS."

    I wonder if there should be a comics chat thread?

    If there is, I will post previews of some of my favorites from my collection.
