Default Kat's play while at work

So, my job leaves me with a good chunk of open time and I tend to either draw or write when I get extremely bored. These are a few things I've drawn while bored. I'm still working on getting hair/faces down and trying to find a tail style that works for me. I had of the tails I liked a lot but I left it at work accidentally and...well needless to say it got thrown away. Due to where I work most of what I draw will be PG13 related....mainly cause any gross amount of nudity is viewed as tastless >.> so...enough blab...

PS: Image is a bit poor since it is from my phone, but I'll scan in once I get access to my scanner :x

PSS: The 2nd and 3rd images are not my creation. I looked at someone elses artwork and tried to replicate it first to see if I could (came close but no cigar) and added the clothing and tail from there. That is why I have a base then a secondary of the same pic with more detail.

Nice. We don't have enough Western-style artists on this board. Not that Asian-style drawing is bad, but I think Western-style is better for learning fundamentals.

I tried to get into that style but...I have just as much trouble with faces and hair doing that style. I haven't really drawn in years, much like I haven't written in years. I guess just having spare time lets me spend more time on it than I normally would (slightly low attention span).

Happy to see you are willing to share your work, Kitkat. Also jealous your job can give you time to do such things. When it gets slow here, people get sent home XD

I still have proportion/perspective issues with hand positions and faces....but a few more that I've done. Last one I didn't get a chance to start doing detail on because I was told to stop working on "that type of art" when my supervisor came in and I had the pad opened by mistake (normally have it closed long before they come in then they go right back out for rest of the night), sorry if it is hard to see atm, but I'll put another up once I've had time to shade it in and finish the line work on it (got the idea after seeing the runic fencer AF XD ). Good thing he didn't see the first one eh?

Looks good, although a little hard to tell on the lined paper. (Not that there is much you can do about it.) Faces do indeed look nice, and I certainly didn't see anything that looked noticeably wrong.

Keep up the good work.

Query though, do you not have a scanner?

I do but don't have access to it at the moment (packed away) but once I get it unpacked I will scan images in.

This may sound like a bunch of hot air from someone who hasn't contributed any of his art in a few years, but...

If you have a scanner/printer, try using the printer paper as a medium, since it's pristine white when you first use it. Eliminating the lines from notebooks or lined paper can really help to show where improvements are needed/wanted. They can be very misleading or detrimental when looking from a critical view point in what does, or doesn't need to be changed.

Also, scanning in pictures can really bring through the angles better by auto adjusting to a more uniform angle.

Aside from that, and as a fellow pencil and paper artist, I want to ask if you flip your paper around as you draw, or do you keep it static in a single position?

As I said, I do these at work currently and the only thing I had available to use that allowed me to easily hide the work when others were around was a notepad. I work in a prison which does not allow any briefcase/purse/bag that is not see through for safety reasons so I can't get a binder to place it in. The drawing pad I attempted to bring in was not allowed either, I'm not exactly sure why at this time, and I'd rather avoid hearing comments about drawing on their printer paper.

I've mentioned that my scanner is currently packed away, and it probably will stay that way for a couple more weeks as I have no idea where it is in a mountain of boxes that came with me and had no where to put other than in a crawl space under the house.

If it is that much of a problem that it is a camera taking the picture then I will cease to share any work until the scanner is accessible, but as of right now it is not something very high on my to-do list.

To answer you question it depends on what I am doing. Often times I will keep the pad in one position, other times I will spin it around to avoid smearing the lead unless I plan to smear/blend that area later. Some tend to think this can cause issues with perspective, but mine seems to be more aligned tot he fact I do the drawing in pieces since it is inbetween work and free time that I draw. Rather than hours to put into it, I have about 20~30min at a time to work on it then I have to do something else work related. Some nights I don't get to work on drawing at all.

PS: Don't take this response as I'm being a bitch, just trying to explain why it went from white paper to lined notepad as well as further explain why they aren't scanned in. It isn't simply that I don't want to scan them or am too lazy to..it is just in an area of the house that is filled with excess packed items I brought with me when I moved back into the house and could not place anywhere. I would love to go back to my white sketch paper or use printer paper, but I've already had issues with co-workers being nosey about my notepad without having random sheets of white paper between the sheets as well.

Your reasoning is very fair and well put. I must have missed one of the posts, or simply forgotten, that you were off to work in a corrections facility. Comments are very reasonable, so i can say with all honesty, you weren't sounding like a bitch at all. I used to do security work for a cable company, so i know about the 20-30 minute time frame to work on something. Working on paper, you're depth is so much higher, but also so much harder to push through. Smearing and smudging techniques cant always be transferred into a PC program, so turning the notebad around is a good way to see the same thing from a different perspective

I don't demand... I convince.

Consider the following... People need to get out more and expand their tastebuds, expand their horizons, otherwise, how will they really know what they do and don't like? In that regard, may I suggest sampling my penis? If you try it, and find that it is not to your liking, well then, lesson learned.

Ignoring that...scanned in of what I have so far along with a WiP Fencer-ish sketch. Sadly I haven't gotten one transfered to white yet, I'll see if I can do that during tonight's shift or not seeing as a lot of the detail got saturated to the point it didn't get captured.

Also trying to get hold of a better/finer tip pencil for fine details like the eyelashes/lips/etc since the one I use now is an old Scripto mechanical pencil (like 1970's don't make anymore old) that is...not even remotely fine pointed hence scratches here and there trying to get an edge/tip.

Always great additions and it's quite incredible with how similar characteristics are showing up with different poses. I can only encourage you to continue to develop your skills; the amount of skill you already possess shows me that you will be able to develop and refine your skills while making those who view your work very happy. It really is great to see you continuing to work on these and share them!

Don't get caught again :P

Thanks lynia. The last being transfered is going through a transfermation! Wanted to see if I could draw a guy for once since the face kind of reminded me of a character I roleplayed ages ago. Got most of the base outline worked out but hands still seem difficult to do at times. On my lunch break so won't get added until tomorrow or day after.

My attempt and shadding. First one was more or less not that well defined, second go went better...but I'm still having serious issues with the face (nose). On 2nd one my eraser was exhausted, my patience was thin...and my dedication lost after a failed 5th attempt to get the lighting right. Sorry for poor scan quality aka lined effect, think I had the wrong scan settings on this one and will try again later..maybe after I work on the nose again....maybe.

No one will every know which kitty that first one is supposed to be >.>;;; Thank you very much for the picture, Kitkat. It's always means something special to me when someone take time out of their day to draw my kitty as she would normally act ^^

Now I just need to get you to stop being afraid of drawing her extra jewelry

Keep up the great work, improvements are happening with each piece and you are beginning to narrow in on your weaknesses. Target them and keep going!

so kitkat, may i ask something? many female artists i know tend to draw women a certain way. usually it's based on either how they themselves look/how they see themselves, or how they want to look. Either of those apply to you?

tl;dr: you look like any of your drawings?

Haven't had time to draw anything lately, but these last few days were slow..so I drew something I saw online a while back (though now I can't find it).

Little different from the norm, but was an image stuck in my head so I figured why not ~shrugs~

O.o you had that image stuck in your head for the last few days? *Takes a few more steps back* I can only imagine the person who used to own that skull died from very painful foot stabbings...

Very interesting on how you changed in up a bit. There is quite a stark difference between this and your others, but perhaps that is due to the nature of the character and the focusing on the face.
