Ive been designing hat pins recently. They're limited edition tradeable pins that are popular in the festival scene. The first one is already sold out.

Very cool looking!  What are the materials?

Also, talk about a blast from the past smile

This will impress no one. It's not meant to; it's more an expression of astonishment on my part.

I haven't drawn anything in years, but when I did I would draw in pencil, scan to my PC, line art on one program, colour and shade on another. I tried to draw directly on PC, but the results were shocking, I couldn't get the hang of it at all.

I recently downloaded a free graphics program. To test out its vector capability, I sketched a quick Leela.

Holy. Crap.

20 seconds to sketch, and I kid you not, 5 minutes to tidy it up; and it only took that long because I was learning to use the program. I admit the result is very rough, but in the circumstances it's remarkable. Making corrections to a drawing is now completely effortless. If I'd had this 10 or even 5 years ago...! Damn bro, I was born too early...

See you in 2018.

I've had terrible luck with vector drawing in GIMP, but Freako did at least one entire comic with it, and it came out great.  Maybe it's more of an innate art thing rather than a tool thing, I'm guessing...

Every time I use it, it takes like an hour and a half to make something shit decent. Maybe it has gotten better, or maybe there are better techniques I'm unaware of. The tools in Flash are still the most intuitive I've used; If only somebody could mak a program that keeps those and drops the project creation framework shit.

I'm a total beginner, but for my purpose (basic lining) I found drawing several short lines, each using only 2 or 3 nodes to adjust the curvature, was far more time efficient than drawing a few long lines and then having to use many nodes to adjust the curves. Your project might have different needs, though.

That's cool. Flash doesn't use 'nodes' per se, you can grab a line you made at any point and then bend it in an intuitive manner. Maybe I'll play with inkscape more one day.

I've been learning with pixels lately.


About 2 hours in April


2-3 hours in June
This was my first time shading wings, so some experimenting.


4-6 hours in two sittings, made spur-of-the-moment for the same-sex marriage legalization today.

Those are some awesome dragons, Motor Oil. Kudos to you for having the patience and eye for detail that pixel art requires.

A couple of pictures of original characters...

...and my one and only recent 'Rama fanart (hands are the bane of my existence and I'm still practicing them)

I'm too cheap for Photoshop, so these were all done in GIMP. I have very little patience or time to sit and draw for hours on end, so my stuff has become increasingly rushed and sloppy with time.

Can't believe it's been PAGES since I posted in this thread. Look at all the stuff that's been posted that I haven't even remotely encourages people to do more of!

Keep up the good work, everyone! Except you, Nibbs.

(That one says "And I think bronies are gay furries" Sizing issue.)





Truly, I am the next Thomas Kinkade. Praise shall begin now.

I think I drew SpaceGoldFish.



Behold: Ramblings and Drawings by Nibbs!







EDIT: Any sizing or image issues fixed. Enjoy shitty art by a future graphic designer.

I made more art you guys.



Introducing part three of my "Crap No One Wants to See" series: I Can't Draw Worth A Crap: Sketches and Doodle by Nibbs





My art doesn't suck and isn't inconsistent, I'm experimenting with a couple different art styles. That's why my art varies in look so much from one doodle to another.

And as an added note, you said:

Hahaha! Those are actually brilliant...

Nah, but I did very much enjoy those arts of yours. Maybe if you were to do more I might include you in my next "good job everyone" post in another seven pages!

I can't exactly go back in time and fix that, now can I?

Aw, thanks, you old British exile, you.

Aha, another who feels the bane of my existence - drawing hands.

They are a pain. I can't draw much of anything, really, but hands are out of the question.

But really, those are absolute perfection.

I'm slowly proving that artistic talent isn't important when you can make fun of others and get away with it.

But yeah, keep stroking my ego. I'm almost there, guys. Keep it up and I might pick up a pen and doodle out more inside jokes and subpar art.

EDIT: Don't forget to donate to my Patreon! I'm open for commissions, too!

That stack of drawings reminds me of something, from a while back.

Oh yeah. The Corrupt Despot 2013 campaign, which led to my election as the supreme overlord of Earth for 2014.

That's it's own kind of talent. Nurture it. Cherish it. Allow it to grow.

Oh yeah, and that reminds me of this:



I can't remember when this was done, but my computer informs me that the file was last modified in May 2014. It's titled "Mocking Nibbly Back", so you must have done something to deserve it, but the details have temporarily escaped me.
