I appreciate you guys taking the time to write your thoughts on my stuff. And I am willing to take your critique so that I may get better so feel free, tho I will probably have none to return on your own stuff for I have no idea what I'm doing. If you guys remember what I mostly did on the forums is images mostly involving Photoshop edits or just little drawing with my avatar this is the first time I'm actually trying anything big. So it never occurred to me that some people might find that style jarring I guess its not for everyone.

The only thing I think I'd like to see is a more careful use of color.
Ah so time to share something that I've never really brought up. So i'm colour blind. Red-Green colour blind (deuteranomaly). And this severely impacts my colour making chooses you could almost say I have no colour sense at all because growing up, picking and choosing colour was such a hassle that I never really developed a skill for it. While I may see some just fine not being able to see others just makes it something I never tried with (Not sure if that makes sense but its the best I can describe it.)) So yer haha here I am trying to make art. Funny isn't it?

So to me colour chose is a mechanical thing in everything I make I always have a colour pallet that I know(think) has the right colours in it or I have a ref image that I take the colour straight off. Tho I wish to get better at it, its just something that will never come to me as easy as it is for normal people. I just see the world differently I guess.

But I'd love to hear your thoughts on my colour chose in that image. Just keep in mind I may have no idea what your going on about haha.

Anyway thanks guys. oof that was a lot of writing :p
Jarring isn't necessarily bad. I think that quality gives your art a lot of character.

Your choices of colors don't have anything to do with your color blindness, the mistakes I'm seeing you make are exact same ones that amateur artists who aren't color blind make, like overusing black and grey. Borrowing color palettes from other images that look nice to you is super normal, I do that all the time! Plenty of artists who aren't color blind have the exact same problems to overcome as you when it comes to learning how to use colors mechanically before it becomes intuitive, in fact that's how all people are with all art skills, no one is born knowing color theory or how to use a pencil or brush. Before I was decent at building my own palettes I would use palette generators, I still borrow palettes from other people and tweak them but lately I make all my own colors because it's just as fun.

Are you on Discord? I can help you with colors in real time and try to explain some concepts to you. We can mess with some color palettes together! I can even simulate your color blindness, this way I bet we can find a method for picking colors that works for you.

Okay, "I did" is not quite true. I used an artist's drawings as inspiration and copied their stylistic choices. I found it interesting and educational, though, so all good :P

Is it alright if I ask in here for someone to whip up a quick 'n' easy image edit for me? Normally it would be within even my abilities (heck, you could easily just use Paint), but my computer is currently out of action.
I haven't looked into any mobile image editing apps and I can only imagine they'd be highly fiddly on my smartphone, so I'm asking here instead.

I'm not about to pay someone for this (if nobody's keen I guess I'll have to go in search of useful apps) but I would totally shout ya a beer for being a legend. Also included would be my humblest thanks, and of course feel free to reuse his hilarious idea (without my name attached, of course). You could even make it a template with the name and profile pic left blank!!

I'd say it came out pretty well though. Dat bisection. I gotta ask though, is that a husk, or a night troll?



I on the other hand have been rather irresponsible, and only have this rough draft to show for the week, a follow-up to the first one an that range pic, based on the distracted boyfriend meme per my employer's recommendation. Monika might be to his right, but money is putting in a job notice to his left. And DJ likes money. Money keeps him fed and his lights on.

It's a night troll :3 Twilight monster, females are the mainline. Did you guys ever noticed that in night trolls, the main line is always bigger than their mates?  And transformed grooms lose their balls upon transformation ? I'll give more informations about the story behind this one in particular, he was an interesting fellow

Also nice meme picture, I wish I had time to draw some of my own

I'm making a knife in Art Nouveau style, the plan is that the handle will be aluminium bronze (that is a golden colored alloy, for this reason it was used for decoration in Art Nouveau and a lot in Art Decò) with mahogany center (Sapele really for the experts out there) and garnets in the pommel's holes.
I still have to see if my furnace will be able to really handle it, but I've smelted a piece of brass in it to be sure I could get to the needed temperature, so it shouldn't be a problem!

Edit: sorry I have no clue how do you make the small picture that can be zoomed!

That is brilliance on an epic scale.

Really good render, I'm impressed!!! Accurate copying is a super useful way to learn.

Aaaah you legend!! This is brilliant, thanks so much. :D
Not entirely what I meant with the second image and the Happy Birthday part, but this opens up interesting new opportunities... maybe from now on I'll just hit people with that picture when I'm struggling to think of any interesting birthday wishes, haha.

I'll post it a bit later in the morning. This is gon' be great.
