    Quistis' Drawings

    Finally got a pen tablet! And just wanted to share my artwork... Been looking for tutorials all over the internet so none of my drawings are identical in style so far...

    Shameless plug- my DA page: deviantART

    Re: Quistis' Drawings

    A VERY LATE thank you Ushi!

    Oh my, it's been awhile since I updated this thread. I made a ton more drawings since then. I wouldn't post all the artwork I did in between (though you can all check it out in my deviantart account at roguemina.deviantart.com) So here's a few of my latest..

    From the webcomic I am working on (personal project. You can check it out at Eon : The Curse of Forgotten Past: Home




    And commissions I did just recently (finished them just this week):

    Re: Quistis' Drawings

    Holy shite... These are really amazing. Love the colors, and basically just everything about all your pics. Can I has your talent? :3 I think I'd just be happy with half of what you can do.

    I think the last one in your newest uploads is my favorite (dem eyes~), but they're all amazing. ^^

    Re: Quistis' Drawings

    Goddamn!

    I honestly don't have any other word to describe your work, looking at your drawings makes me realize how far I'm from that point right now.

    Re: Quistis' Drawings

    Thanksk Dodie and Xanatos ^_^

    It takes lots of practice and patience/determination. My drawings aren't always like this from the beginning. You can see the difference from the pics I posted in the first post and the latest ones. They are posted 1 year and 8 months apart and I drew continuously from that point (at least on full colored drawing a month on average. Usually more than that).

    Going back further, this is my progress in 2010. My first digital drawings look like a kid's doodle in Jan 2010 when I just picked up my tablet:

    Improvement Meme

    Some traditional stuff I did. I was trying to make ACEO/Sketch Cards in the last few months. Thought they are cool little collectible artworks and I wanted to give them a shot (think baseball trading cards only you get an artist's drawing on it)

    My first attempt. And yes, it's Quistis


    Another one of my fave characters. Rogue from X-Men:


    Time for a male character. Gambit:


    Since I am reaching the img tag limit, here's the last 3 I did. Size comparison with a pen. The top two - Elektra and Black Cat are commissions. Third one is me attempting to color using colored pencils. It's the character who is currently in my avatar and banner:

    Re: Quistis' Drawings

    Backtrack a little bit, forgot to mention that I also joined the Guild Wars Halloween contest. I won honorable mention in 2010 , didn't place anything in 2011 lol (I wasn't surprised, art block has struck me too many times this year)

    Re: Quistis' Drawings

    Dodie already showed me before, so I already knew, but yeah, that's pretty damn amazing. The amount of detail, the shading, etc. That Guild Wars Oct. 2010 image especially sticks out to me. The coloring is pretty seamless on that one. It looks like an official image. You must put a lot of time and effort into these. I have a friend with a somewhat similar style, although I think you probably have him beat on the coloring front. This may sound like a dumb question, but what program do you use to color your stuff in?

    Re: Quistis' Drawings

    Thanks Tele. Yeah I spent a lot of time on the GW 2010 one. I looked for critiques and stuff with that one. 2011 one was meh overall. At the middle of it I just rushed to finish everything.

    I color using photoshop cs3 (and that's not a dumb question =P). Over the last two years my techniques have changed in terms of coloring/rendering but I always used photoshop for coloring.

    Re: Quistis' Drawings

    Been drawing on and off (mostly off) in the last couple of months. Thanks to Star Wars MMO and the winter blues, I've been very distracted/uninspired.

    Pic in my current banner and avatar is pretty much the last thing I drew that had me in a drawing mood:


    After that it's all meh for me. I drew some sort of 'speed paint' (It did take me at least a couple of hours though...). It's one of my characters. The chess piece is just a symbolism on how he views everything around him. Just trying to get the cobwebs off from me

    Re: Quistis' Drawings

    Thanks Kyra!

    So, I literally play LoL everyday and for some reason, I missed the announcement that they are having an art contest...I was almost done with an Ahri fanart when I heard of the contest. So, four days before the deadline, I did this. I know 4 days seem a lot, but with work and other RL stuff that I do, this was probably only 3-5 hours of work overall:



    Not my best but I hope to at least get some riot points QQ

    *deleted my old post because I found out the answer to my question. You can't gift Riot Points at this time >_<*

    Anyhow, two drawing updates:
    The Ahri drawing I originally intended to submit to Riot before I found out about the contest:


    And as requested by Rowan. It's Tifa. Sorry for the messiness..this is how I normally sketch >_>

    Re: Quistis' Drawings

    wee, been awhile. I think I have Art block right now, been busy with other stuff. Other than that, I did draw a few things since my last post.

    Latest page of the comic I am working on:
    Eon - Vol 1 Ch 1 Pg 8 by *roguemina on deviantART

    Another tablet sketch that happened to look similar to an old drawing I drew many years ago (same character at that)


    And a rather rushed monochrome portrait drawing of a character of mine (same one in my avy and sig)


    But yeah..after that, it's been really slow for me in the art department QQ

    Re: Quistis' Drawings

    Your "Draw this again Meme" thing is neat. It's like seeing a young person grow up, because he has a youthful roundness to his face on the left side, and on the right he looks a lot more mature. I actually like both of those pictures in the meme, tbh.

    Your lady in the portrait drawing is beautiful. So regal and elegant-looking. And you say it was rushed? Your rushed works look 10,000x more awesome than ones that I spend time on.

    Re: Quistis' Drawings

    In honor of the return of Randomosity, I just dug from the depths of my super old artworks and found this:



    It's a drawing I made of his old RP character here in TFF year 2000 or 2001 maybe? Whenever it is, I havent even learned to sign my drawings yet lol.

    As for real updates...well I did a ton since my last post. It's like I got hit by an art train and dragged me 100 miles an hour...and made 7 drawings in total (latest to oldest). I would thumb them all but I reached the image tag cap, so the oldest ones are just links.

    Another character portrait for a friend

    You are the exceptional artiste. Sorry I haven't been harrassing you more on dA, but I feel like I've run out of things to say Only so many ways I can say "Whoah, that is awesome! Why do you draw so well? I MUST STEAL YOUR ESSENCE." Wait, I've never said that, that's just a thought that's come into my head now... .... .... Anyhoo...

    *looks at last post* 2013..and here I am 4 years later. Funny how a ton of stuff have changed. O_O

    Still drawing. At some point I was just doing portrait commissions, drawing my own characters and, on very rare occasions, fanart.

    Attachment 25756moana_by_artofrivana-db4hngj.jpgpirate_mina_by_artofrivana-da2uw43.jpg

    Early this year though, I decided to close my commissions and revisit my 2011 comic so I that's what I am focusing on now. I still got a long way to go. I am working on the Prologue and only on Page 9 atm -_-




    I have way too much updates so just check out my DA page lol

    This guy reminds me of Chester Barklight from Tales of Phantasia... is that intentional, or am I just going mad?

    ...I guess it could be both

    lol I had to look up the character. I never heard of him before.

    I can see why you think they are similar though.

    Well Chester is a bad mofo and it's a compliment, also the drawings are spectacular but I was too shy to say anything before.

    Thanks for the compliments!

    I might read more on Chester lol. Also I now realized that I shaded that archer's (Ran is his name) hair too lightly in the picture, making him look like he had light hair like Chester.

    Here's an alternate view of him:
