My Decent Drawings

Postby Hopeflower » Mon Aug 27, 2007 1:54 am

Umm...yeeaahh, I'm still not entirely sure this was a good idea. But here we go. The first pictures are of my sisters holding a Monarch butterfly, and most of the others I took at Magic Wings, a butterfly museum in Massachusetts.

Tell me what you think...

The girl in the black is me, the girl in the shiny pink shirt is my sister MacKenzie, the girl with the white shirt is my sister Addie, and the baby is Megan.

Not bad. I like the pics of the Bearded Dragon.

Cool! Some are a bit blurry, as you said, but in general, not bad at all! How did you get butterflies? Did you hatch them?

Pyro: The monarchs we bought as caterpillars, but the others were at Magic Wings.

CS: Bearded Dragon, actually. But there was a chameleon there, you're right about that.

Awesome pics. All the butterflys were awesome, but I'd have to say I like the lizards best (being a reptile person myself :P )

I figured you'd like the lizards better.

It was hard not to step or run into the butterflies--they were EVERYWHERE! And they're from all over the world, which is what makes them a real treat to see.

I've been to a place like that, but it was pretty small, and the butterflies never really landed on me.

This is Yoruichi Yadomaru, my character in SHRPG. ^_^

She's in a good mood there. o.o

Her Demon form:

I tried adding teh almighty wings, but it was an epic fail. Almost screwed up the entire pic. T^T

I apologize for the triple post, but I've done some more - better - art recently.

http://steeltalon.deviantart.com/art/He ... -151355321

I'm in love with how the chain came out, and how I did the details. I think this is one of my best pics. ^_^

http://steeltalon.deviantart.com/art/Kin-147894718

Warriors fanart. The big cat is Tigerstar, the tom with blue eyes is Hawkfrost, and the third cat is Brambleclaw. I did my best to make Hawkfrost and Tigerstar look as evil as they were portrayed to be in the books. I think - I hope - I succeeded. o.o This was also an experiment in shading.

http://steeltalon.deviantart.com/art/Fo ... -143170849

An older pic, but still one that I consider pretty well done. The shading however is "meh" at best. But I LOVE the blood.

http://steeltalon.deviantart.com/art/Bl ... -141121892

This is somewhat older art of a character I recently introduced to SHRPG. (Those who pay attention to the details will make the connection.) I've been in love with her for some time now, though I decided to call her Ira rather than Kasai in the RPG. As you may guess from all the blood...she's a violent one. XD Who or what the blood belongs to is up to your imagination. (Her wings could've been done better. Looking at them now, I cringe. maybe someday I'll redraw this one.)

http://steeltalon.deviantart.com/art/Alira-152687965

And of course Alira. XP I drew this one yesterday. I didn't bother shading it because it was really just a quick doodle to relieve boredom.

Edit: Added his Clan name.

Pretty cool pic, HF. You seem to follow a certain style with your Warriors/WRPG pictures, which is cool. Thumbs up.

i can comfortably say i'm very pleased with how he came out. he looks even better than i imagined him, despite it being accurate. i'd say the only problem with the pic would be the head, but then, i can sympathise with that, seeing as for a long time even some of my best Rex pics had really disproportionate heads.


but as a character pic, it's extremely accurate to Wraith's actual appearance. i may start tampering with the lineart and see if i can't compensate for the big head with an expanded body....i just hope it doesn't just make him look ridiculously fat O_o
