apparently this thread is for drawing n photos although mostly drawing lately because i'm lazy when it comes to uploading photos. :3! I purchased a Canon EOS 600D a few months ago. I tend to like photos of birds/flowers/plants/etc. Also, I've taken lots more photos on my iPhone (and other cameras over the year) but I don't feel like finding them (and despite iPhone quality they're p good) so this is just for stuff from my DSLR! as for the drawing stuff i don't have a tablet or anything and due to that i don't draw really properly i just draw w/e. and cute mons and stuff :3

Animals













Nature



















enjoy~

UH so I am in no way good at drawing buuuut I've been drawing with my mouse recently since I lack a tablet, and I thought these turned out really cute I think? (basically larger versions of my signature + avatar, plus the new orange bird mon and oshawott). so ya i thought, why not bump this i guess??



<-- took 10 mins to colour n draw (very excited by that)!!!


i also drew some other stuff but it was really not much effort and not coloured and yeahhh.

I really like someone is posting mostly photographs, Good Luck with it.
Till now I really like it, have you tried photographing unliving things like Waterfalls, Lakes, Mountains, Plains, Deserts (I can't say what as I don't know where you live), I would like to see how you would do that, anyway Good Luck and Luvdisc'd

Loving the progression of your pieces so far.

Your photography images in particular gotten my view the most because they all look realistic (especially the various features of fluids that displays on the textures of the plants), engaging, and the fact that I have a huge love of birds, dogs, and flowers/plants. The way that you've displayed your background features, quality of the displays, variety of different colors, clear understanding of the animal's emotional state (curious, dishearted, loyal within their surroundings, to name a few), diverse use of tone and lighting really exhibits of how naturally and beautifully executed the snapshots turned out. It's nice to see something that I can maintain an emotional attachment towards.

Regarding some of your drawings, they look nice. Since I'm not much of a drawer myself, I can't seem to get too much in detail in terms of a critique, but I really think that the idea behind not displaying any eyes does tend to match the quality of some of your work here pretty well. It just seems right since it brings more of a "jolly" feel towards their image and it works better off in my opinion because a cheerful emotion is what mainly describes the way they were drawn (Oshawott and Litwick being the best example). The only problem I saw is that Oshawott looked a bit disproportional and there were angling issues (mainly on the head matching the body), but practice makes perfect.

Great work on these overall Nica, thanks a lot for the Golduck picture, and I'll look forward for more in the future. :)

Walrein is a low quality Pokemon that was drawn in a high quality picture for an incredibly high quality user. 10/10 would look at it again.

Hi.
Interesting art thread you got there and your photos are really crystal clear. I love the variety of rules you've applied in your photos (i.e. rule of thirds, close up for examples) and even if some of the animals/flowers are centered, there's always something there to make them more interesting.
For your artworks, I really like how cute they are but they seem a bit wonky to me. For instance, I find many of the proportions and anatomy off (i.e. Golduck has a jellybone structure and it looks unnatural as its feet look scrambled; Victini's [as you mentioned] right arm is unusually large compared to its left; Sealeo's left arm is missing, etc...). I could say your lineart is a bit on the wobbly side but since you are using a mouse then I think the lineart looks pretty good.
Anyways, I think you have potential for improvement so I would keep up the great work! :)

Thanks for your comment! But yeah, I totally get that in regards to the anatomy. It just looks... off and hard to fix at that point, but I do plan to work more on that in the future, but for now I'm really figuring out what I'm doing ahaha. But I do appreciate the comment, and I do intend to work on that stuff.

With that said, here's uh, a dragon/fighting fakemon drawn from what we were discussing in #neverused earlier that I called Drabox. I only listened to one of the suggestions in regards to drawing it (which was the gloves, because otherwise it'd be fluffy and pink -- thanks tennisace). I tried to shade a little buuut it's off, and keep in mind that I drew -that- on a touchpad which is even worse than the mouse I used with the previous drawings ;_;

Okay so I got my laptop back so I can post photography updates BUT I lost my charger so idk I need to find it anyway,

Nature













Animals (I'm aware the birds are blurred but I think it looks more meaningful blurred so I just made it black n white~) Also, I really played with the lighting @ the dog ones, so hopefully you see what I mean.






Other




Green plants and dogs are from yesterday btw.
