LAYF’s (practice sketches)

Postby LAYF » Sun Apr 07, 2013 7:48 pm

PLEASE READ

I recently decided to learn how to really draw! And for that, I need practice.. practice and challenges, so therefore, if you run around with a character on your head you'd like illustrated, face or full pose, please don't hesitate to ask...
No task is to big!!
As a rule of tum, only one character per user, unless I have nothing to do.
A month or two after I've drawn a character, I will probably draw it again, maybe new pose or maybe the same... to be able to see my progress.

I will involve you in the following steps of the creation process:
-Reference material (I'll search the web for material to use as reference, I'll show you this and explain how I intent to use it, you may also help and/or say if there are parts you do not like)
-Pose (if a pose image, I'll send a stick pose along with the ref material, and you can ask for changes)
-Rough colored/uncolored(depending on the image I'll make either a single color rough or a mufti color rough before the final line art, when this rough is approved, I'll post all progress here and in my other threads and move one to the final work)

Any character I draw you can use as you will, as long as you give credit, All finished drawings will be posted here, on my twitter and on my devianart account!



LAYF’s Doodles and Tattoo scribbles.

So, I was looking through some of my old drawings, and I found a collection of Tattoo drafts I made once.. actuealy sold some of them back then (they paid for my own tattoo).. most are tribal kind of...
And one of them I got myself on my bag (The draong with the five point star, but a bit altered)...

Here they are

EDIT: Sorry.. Imageshack seems to rotate them.. and wont allow me to change them back to normal position :S)


Edit 2: All except newers image in spoilers.... for loading speed.

I’ll properly try and clean some of them up... but wanted to show you guys them...

What do you think (note.. they are 7 years old now..)

I like them. In fact, I almost might like to get a couple of them.

I especially like the dragon one.

Mostly just designs from my mind, some with a bit of thought in nordic culture in mind, some with standard tribal... all with a touch of me :P

Oh, and thanks.. any specific you had in mind?

#1, #2, #6-8 are my favorites but they're all good. This may sound stupid to ask but is the first one supposed to be satanic? I feel like a 40-year old protective mother asking that but I honestly just want to know :P and what does the language say/what language?

Nice stuff you got there!

Have you researched into the meaning of the tribal tattooes, or just made some because they look cool? I also see you like symmetrical design, have you tried to make asymmetrical stuff?

Hehe... okay thanks...
and don’t feel stupid to ask, many does. The whole "oh no its a pentagram.. its the work of the devil" stuff... but no....
The pentagram is pointed upwards, and if you look around in Europe, you'll even find churches with that on the bell tower, the meaning of the upwards pointing pentagram is that of an ascended being, one who understands the world, and always tries to learn and feel more of it.
The dragon below is meant for strength, and is supposed to symbolize freedom, strength, courage and honor.
The text is a bit hard to translate. but in a "rough" translation it says "Strive to be the best you can be" but in more than just the sense you normally put in the words... it’s in every fashion, as a human, as a living, spiritual, knowledgably, passionate, compassionate being.... if that makes sense.... and that is actually the tattoo I have on my back (between my shoulder blades) but without the text... don’t know If I'll ever add it...

I did some back then.. but most are only inspired by the basics behind tribal and Celtic knots, then with a touch of me :)

I've made some asymmetric stuff over the time... but that has mostly been logo designs and such.. not many tattoos... I.. just have a love for the symmetric styles... I'll see if i can find some of it next time I have my art maps out :)

Sorry, I just didn't want him to think I was asking that in a dissaproving way, so I just thought of an stereotypical group that's usually very dissaproving :P
And AHHH THAT'S FREAKING AWESOME MEANING. I'm gonna have to PayPal you for that one day, whenever I get a PayPal...I dig it enough to get it on my own back, seriously. Then we could meet up one day and be tattoo buddies <3

Yep, I still have her profile image...

So.. As a Dr draw.. Full body or profile image?

*warning, if full body it will probably take some tries before it's any good... Im not proficient at body drawing yet.. But practice makes the master as they say...
