Welcome to the daily drawings and doodles thread!


Are you doing a daily drawing challenge for a month or year? Post here!
Doodle something cool that's not good enough to go anywhere else? Post here!
Don't feel confident enough to call your art "art" yet? Post here!
Sketches, studies, artistic successes and failures, paintings real and digital, incomplete efforts, technique/colour/material tests, poo poo you drew in the margins of your textbook?





No art is too terrible to post. If you want to talk about the art thing you made or ask for advice on your art thing, guess what? You can post here!

Awwwwwwww yeah. New year, new thread!

I'm going to try and do a drawing a day. I'm sure to varying degrees of success and failure. We'll see how it goes. Might be pencil, might be digital, might be crayons. Right now it's pencil.

I've got the first four days done. 361 to go. I did the fourth day early. Sue me.

I didn't so much draw this as I did open a wormhole and pull it from my mailbox nine hundred years from now, I suppose.

You're off to a good start! With a daily grind I found that sometimes Life comes at you with special punching gloves and that you should be forgiving to yourself if your daily art turns out to be a doodle of a bunnybutt, as long as you get it done.

I would like to at the very least reach 1000 drawings which I might some time this year. In general I kinda just want to keep doing daily drawings for as long as I possibly can.

1000 drawings this year! And I thought I was crazy for trying to do 365.
Love the dog at the heater bonfire, by the way! Even dogs need to replenish their estus every now and then.

That's exactly what it is! The whole underpainting was with a jittered brush, in pencil mode (for the hard edged pixelly effect). I didn't actually intend to keep the effect all the way to the end but then I realized it actually lent some personality to subjects that are related to tech.

Edit: today's work

Today I did not manage to put together anything of worth and had to scrap three drawings, getting incredibly mad and frustrated in the process. Not a good day. I did manage to finish this one though it did not make me happy.

Today I thought "Yeah my lizardperson is shaping up, well, maybe I should try to stop hiding behind claw-feet and do a proper pair of boots too" and well what do you know, normal people boots look really out of place on lizard-people.
"Maybe they look out of place 'cause she has no other clothes!"
Then I tried to give her more clothes and since I wasn't doing proper thinking, I went with my Default Clothes, turtleneck shirt and shorts.



"Now my badass lizard-woman is wearing teenager gear that's badly outdated. Do I .. do I give her tits to make her look older? Why would a lizard even have tits? That's it I'm done for today."

give her one of those ribbed waterproof vests that old chinese people wear when walking around the neighboorhood, that should do the trick

no but seriously though looks good but imo the eyes are too frontal for a lizard person

I've never done a redraw before, and finally decided to do one. I was looking at an old drawing in my sketchbook and found the original reference photo, so I gave it a shot. The original drawing is from 2 years ago.

The improvement is well visible, but my favourite is how well your newer version captures a mood - the soft shading really makes a change.


This pikatchu looks like someone just found the puddle it left in a shoe.


As for the lizard, I realized the proportions needed some adjusting to make her older.



I also tried some lizardhands, but I think functional hands might've been the better option. Not much you can do clotheswise if you character's thumb-deficient. Clawfeet make a glorious return. There's just so much power that the character loses with humanoid feet and shoes.
I think I started too humanoid to begin with, and might continue pushing in the other direction.

edited to add p.s: toasty lizard

Thanks! I've been using the side of the pencil more than the point, which allows for smoother lines and better shading.

I'm on a robot people kick lately. Why do they have hair? Why do they wear clothes? Shut up, that's why.

I'm working on a whole setting for these but also mostly I wanted a convenient reason to draw a bunch of fembots.
