Mural in my kid's room.

Postby nillapoet » Mon Apr 28, 2014 12:38 pm

So, my 13 year old step son said he wanted a mural in his room. Drawing on textured walls is not fun.

This is what I have so far. I'll update as I fill up the wall.

Oh. My. Gosh! How on earth are you able to draw in the same art styles of these two animes?! It's amazing... :wow!:

Thanks for the kind words. For some reason, I can draw what I see pretty decently, but my own characters are just "eh".

Added Gageel and Levy and added some shading to Kirito's hair. I have some minor things to touch up and open space to figure out how to connect.

Oh. MY. Gosh. That is wonderful! You totally nailed the art styles of the original drawings! Bravo!!

As always, this is cool. I'm excited to see who else comes into this picture. *cough*Mystogan*cough* But seriously, this is cool.

Wow! A fantastic piece of art!

Mind if I ask how long you've been drawing (as in with an aim to improve, not including doodles from when you were three) ?

Thank you. Mystogan will be there somewhere. I think I might do him, Juvia, and Elfman next.

So in theory if I draw a lot everyday for the next 18 years I would get close to your skill level then. And that's on the assumption I am at least as talented as you? :)

Haven't made much progress because of the heat lately. The room is like a sauna. So, here's something else I drew recently. I like to draw characters I like. Haven't done a whole lot of original material in a while.

Good job nilla! As usual, your drawings are awesome :D

Just a question out of curiosity, did you use the Natsu in your avatar as a model for drawing Edward? I'm only asking as their poses are strikingly similar.

I did not. But that is a nice little coincidence. :lol:

Thanks everyone. I've got an Asuna Yuuki drawing I'm trying to finish up which I'm really proud of and will post the final.
