Melodic Does The Draw UPDATED 1/18/2017

Recommended Posts

So here I am, finally making an art thread. For the most part, I'm hoping to amass constructive criticism and hopefully strengthen my art style along the way! 

Before we get to the actual art, I apologize in advance for any low quality images, 99% of the pictures for the traditional art are taken with my phone.

[spoiler=Old stuff]AxAWKsB.jpg?2

It sucks that I don't actually have the actual image for this next one but whatever, right?

All that stuff is maybe a year or two old at this point and my art style has changed since then so none of it is really 100% relevant anymore.



I could use more stuff for that last spoiler but it's not really necessary because I'm here to talk about more current pieces. 

[spoiler=More current art, Cutesy things]Okay so this is all going to be my more cartoony chibi stuff, which is for whatever reason the stuff I color most.

Over the summer I drew up a boat load of mermaid designs that i sometimes still draw so yeah! The original drawing of this particular mermaid will be further down in the post.

And to finish off this little chunk, have a little Agatha I drew for a friend.



And now for my most preferred style, the not-chibi one. 
[spoiler=How Many Ways Can I Draw Myself Before You Get Suspicious]I'll might as well start with this one

Up next we have random OC

Anglerfish Mermaid

Maybe I'll color that someday.

Different OC that ended up as practice drawing butts.

I'm never finishing this.

And, to finish off this spoiler, something I drew yesterday!

Because this is a Fire Emblem Forum, the obligatory Fire Emblem art!
[spoiler=I'm hoping to expand to other FE characters but I've been lazy as of late so it's mostly Awakening characters right now]Lets do this!

Ryouma from FE14!



That all barely scratches the surface (especially the Fire Emblem Portion, my god), but I think it's a relatively good mix of my range of art styles and a good place to start. I hope to be posting mainly Fire Emblem related works, because we all can relate to Fire Emblem for the most part, right?

Comments and criticism are welcomed and encouraged!

I love... pretty much everything here, actually. The mermaids especially.

I enjoy your art style. it's the kind of cutesy, charming style that I like. Keep up the good work, definitely.

No, seriously, the mermaids are cool.

omg i like your chibi

maybe you could grant a request

Sorry, Icarasu, but i don't do requests! It's hard to explain why but I just don't like to have someone else decides and sets the parameters of what I pour my creativity into it's just sort of difficult for me to do.

Some of your best work are the chibis( special shout out to Edea Lee).

Wow, these all look great o: I love the Mermaid one.. I like your artstyle. o:

Sorry for the delay in updates! Here's a little doodle of Ricken I started messing around with colors on.

[spoiler=Haha this thing is gigantic ]

I'm probably going to clean up the sketch and color it for real soon, but wanted to get some feedback on what I've got down on the canvas so far!

Ahhhh, I can't wait to show more! I hope to post more of my stuff very soon (that is if i can actually draw anything that looks finished, which i think i can but shrug)!

Really good for a doodle.

Ahhh, thanks! Sometimes the doodles turn out way better than the things that are actually planned out and all that jazz.

He looks...older. Good job!

Does he? I hope that's not a bad thing, but i guess it's because his eyes aren't as massive and doe-like as they are in his sprite!

I'll try and post some more stuff within a day or two, thank you for all your nice words ouo!

I'm going to concur with the opinion that Ricken looks slighly older in your image. Also, I notice the lines on the lower right of the hat looks a bit odd where it meets the cloak. I assume the hat is meant to be circular, but the line seems to bend back out, if you know what I mean.

It's a great image, though.

Ah! I'd never have noticed if you didn't mention it! I can't tell what i was doing over there, but I'll be sure to fix that up when i go back into it. Thank you~

Hey these are really good! Very cute style you have, I like it a lot. My artisitic sense is horrendous, so I can't offer any critique that would be worthwhile, but some of the pieces that I really liked were your Edea Lee drawing (because Edea is the bomb), Angler Fish girl (deep sea fish are nightmare fuel to be honest), Sketchbook filled picture (looks a little like Lucina, except more jovial), and the teary eyed girl that was your wallpaper for a while (very cute style).

Hope you keep updating.

A quick update consisting of more mermaids and some WIP art!

As usual, comments and criticism are welcomed and encouraged!

[spoiler=Mermaids]The first image makes me think about the Death Parade opening.

I couldn't quite place what was wrong with that one hand, so if anyone has any help to offer I'd really appreciate it!

Boy do I love sharks



[spoiler=WIP stuff]This one's got some layers to it, mainly because I've got a few sets of WIP on it, the second and third of which may or may not be tossed.
[spoiler=Original Sketch]

[spoiler=Cleaning up lines]Haha yeah I'm really really lazy about finishing the line clean up tbh, partially because I got frustrated with the nose and the iPad keeps dying.

[spoiler=I gave up on the lines and just started slapping colors on]I always seem to give up on linework because I want to color.

And there you have it! Next time, I hope to have some traditional stuff colored, so stay tuned~!
