Fan-art.... Show it to us!
Is there a Fan-art thread on this forum? I'd love to see what some of you guys are drawing (And you must be because manga is so visual it makes you wanna draw cool stuff). Or is this banned from the forum because it strays too much from costuming or clutters up the board? ^o^

That looks wicked. You'll have to put a link to your deviantart page up. That pretty much blows most of mine outta the water.

I haven't drawn for a while, i'm gonna have to start up again before I get too rusty.

lot of the trouble with fan art is people like tracing and claiming that it's their own original work. usually if you poke around their DA page though, and cross check a few of their images, the rampant tracers can be rooted out pretty fast.

Well i can assure you that the stuff on my deviantart page is not traced. Most of it isn't really even fan-art, just my own characters drawn in a manga style. The only real fan-art on my page is my manga take on the 80's cartoon M.A.S.K. and some Star Wars ones (Like the one on my avatar)

It is often easy to spot the genuine fan-art because often they have done it in a different style to the original. However this isn't as common in manga fan-art because unlike western comics they are drawn in a consistant style that is usually set in stone for that character/franchise.

However, I have no problem with people tracing pictures or just copying. That's how people learn to draw these characters the best. If anything I didn't copy stuff enough when i was younger, i'd be much better now if I had. Just so long as you let people know that you have copied and don't take full credit until you know a character well enough to be able to draw them how you want, doing what you want by memory. Plus it's great when you see little kids drawing stuff they've copied and you can really see that through that process they are really learning.

absolutley. tracing DOES have it's place. it's just when people lie about it, and use it to try to impress when it all becomes "bad" as well as totally pointless in the long run, and potentially devastating to your credibility and trustworthiness.

heck, i used to trace from marvel comics as a kid, and that taught me a lot about physical construction, limb length, foreshortening etc. as i matured, i learned more about how to draw properly, working from life, refrences etc.

you're totally right on the style thing too. tracings are easy to spot purely because no one can act like a human xerox, everyone has their own particular style and way of drawing.

here's one I just finished today:

let me know if you want me to resize mine too

Flip! That is really cool! What are you using, photoshop / illustrator? Wacom? what process?

Macross Fanart
Here is one I have just finished doing. As you can see i'm a bit obssessed with Macross at the momment. I was actually listening to the Macross frontier soundtrack over and over whilst drawing this (Yes, I have it bad).

Ichijo is done from memory as I have been researching his outfit alot lately. For the Valkyrie I used a Revoltech figure to draw from as I haven't really drawn one properly and wanted to get as many details as I could right.

I will start colouring it later, but incase I messed it up I wanted to have a record of the inking stage.

thx, yours is good too. Mine's simple photoshop painting with a wacom tablet. No special technique, just a couple of nice brushes. I use multiple layers, but only so that I can undo segments if I need to.

Well i put it on my deviantart page earlier and out of interest I searched on there for macross. Well, flip! Just about every macross picture on there made mine look infantile. And there was hundreds of them. My mech tend to look a bit stiff and awkward.....but then so does my figure drawing anyway.

I've coloured it now so i'll post it up tomorrow.....er....I mean today. (merry christmas)

Zerosilence: That is looking really cool. Nice job! I love seeing what other people are drawing.

Yeah, I've tried some photoshop but i'm not very good at it. Using layers is really handy though. I've got a wacom, but my lines come out all wobbly ----_____-----____--- ^-^
