Post by: Alex_Reetz on June 14, 2010, 09:09:37 pm
This is Ipod touch-tan, or "Touch-Tan."

This drawing has a story around it, let me explain.

One day at school, I was going to the dumpster to throw away the contents of my locker when I saw a guy throwing away a Ipod touch. I ignored it at first, but curiosity got the best of me and I picked it up. The ipod touch had a fairly large crack on the screen and it appeared someone tried to open it up. The guy saw me pick up the ipod and laughed, " Don't bother with that, it is just junk!" I looked down at the discarded media player and tried to turn it on, but it would flicker and turn off. The guy told me he got this Ipod touch with the screen already cracked and never tested it out. he then took the ipod and threw it into the dumpster and proclaimed it as useless junk. When he walked off, I retrieved the item and took it home. I had a spare ipod cable and as soon as I plugged it in, It WORKED!! The screen was cracked, but the LCD wasn't cracked. I ended up sealing up the pry marks and since then it has been a wonderful Ipod.

Anyways, here is the Touch-Tan from this story.

I did, I thought it wouldn't work from how beatup it was, but in the end, I basically obtained a free ipod touch^^



BTW I am posting all my drawing in here, to save forum space.

here is the original

Guys....thanks for not slandering me with hateful comments about my drawing skills. I know I have semi-acceptable drawing skills ( and ever worse when i first came here) but I like to reassure you, and myself That I am trying to get better.


Since October of 2008:
*I actually started to take my drawing seriously( or what I called serious.)
*I started to use other programs presides MS Paint
*I caved in and bought a tablet (which is still hard to use.)
*I studied some minor drawing styles, nothing that really helps
*started reading 'How to Draw' books (Still no major improvement)
* started going to (http://garyc.me/sketch/gallery.swf) and doodling to break in my tablet
* Started to use paint tool sai,


... thats about it, really.

I am happy to see some fans, and honestly I am grateful for that. without you 3 or 4...or 7 people, I would of never started to tried to improve at all.


Sadly, I don't see much improvement on my drawing, so I decided to stop trying to making project drawings ( ones I 'Try' hard on.) until I review tons of tutorials and make all of you happy and smiles.

The books I bought don't seem to be helping at all, but perhaps I could skim some skills off youtube how to guides. I was told I would only find cocky 13yos who think they can draw making crappy how to vids and even though they were right, I managed to find some 'passable ones'.

I am mainly looking for videos on how to draw heads, arms, hands, actually anything will help  -_-; so please help a brother out if you got any advice or videos you can spare.

I also got a recent message from someone  i don't even know saying that I was left handed( (IDK how he found out), my hand shakes a lot, and I have to work on making the anatomy of my characters badly. He also said I jumped into the internet with my drawings to fast and became a laughing stock.

His advice was:
"
-Stop caring what others think unless it helps you
-all insults are not insults, learn to read between the lines
-a tablet doesn't mean your skill will improve 10 fold, it is basically like getting a bike when you were young.
-For someone as new as you,  you shouldn't finish a drawing at one sitting. Try doing it in parts.
-The Otakus and mainstream Anime boards are the worst places to post your art. You should try to post it within a small group of friends, or a forums where everyone isn't expecting perfection or fap material
-Try doodling, it will waste your time, but it will help you adapt to drawing normally. it will also help you stabilize your hand.

I hope this make you suck less and I look forward to better drawings from you. "

I am probably going to regret posting another 'attention whore' post, but i really need to improve.

you ever considered getting a "how to draw manga" book? mine helped me out when i was starting out, and it's easier than giving random tips over the net. xD

it's better than the last one, though, which was better than the one before that, so you're improving. ^^

@ choko

i went to a drawing class, which showed me beginner's guides to everything

i am planning on getting a authentic how to draw anime book. i got a cheap American styled
how to draw book, but it looks too much like johnny test. mostly, i been learning how to draw anime by, as bad as this sounds, looking at hentai. it helps with anatomy, which is what i suck at the most.

eh, nothing wrong with that.

my first "how to draw manga" book was this:
http://search.barnesandnoble.com/How-to-Draw-Manga/Katy-Coope/e/9780439317450

it gave me a solid base (i actually use alot of the things i picked up in that book still) and i still have fond memories of it. ^^

(sorry to hear about paypal problems, my sister is currently fighting xanga over money taken from her account that she didn't authorize ><; )

she put out another book, but once you get the hang of this one, you can move on to the more specific stuff (i think the book i bought after that--about 3 years later--was another general book, but after that was about teenage girls and their lives, interests, etc).
