A Doodle Thread Appears!

Because, as far as I can tell, we haven't had one in a while.

Last one I remember was this and before that this.

Also, if you remember other doodle threads, please link them here as I'm trying to find them all.

'nuf said, doodle! :)

I really like that one William, reminds me of the style in the Gobliiins games. Is there any particular story to the characters? Do they have names? What's their relation to each other? And what about the secretive guy with the hat?

Well, the second one is really crappy but that just might be due to the chosen subject (heh, it feels like it's been just yesterday when we had fun bashing on Sev on IRC although it has probably been years since I last did that).

Not sure if you want any crits on the first one but the text on the cup seems to be jumping out of its surface (it should wrap around in proper perspective). Other than that it's a huge step forward from flat stick figures.

no story that I've come with yet I'm afraid. Names not thought about. Not sure about their relation. I'll have to give it some thought.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

The guy with the hat :- I think he's someone from their past come back for some unsavoury reason :)

Wuh?! Wai... but you are the Creator! There must be a grand purpose for what You have created and it must have something to do with the characters and how important they are! :o

It's true. I used to be really crappy at drawing. Then I practiced. Now I'm just kind of crappy.

I drew a little cartoon to add, but my attachments key is missing. When I added this post, the screen had one before the image completed, but it disappeared. I guess I'm not allowed to add attachments. For shame, Matthew, and after I convinced my brother to name his first son after you.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

You don't have to do anything and there's nothing to be sorry about. The drawing can very well just stand for itself and every viewer will have their own story in mind looking at it. I was just curious whether there was an "official" story to it.

Wuh?! Wai... but you are the Creator! There must be a grand purpose for what You have created and it must have something to do with the characters and how important they are!

Is that sarcasm or bitter cynicism? I wasn't asking because I think there needs to be a purpose/meaning to everything but just out of curiosity.

Well, I do not personally consider myself to be an able artist (still intend to become one though (meanwhile I think I'm doing ok)) but my advice would be this: practice.

Because they practice.

No way! Capable artists fell out of their mothers wombs like capable programmers fell out of theirs, already with 5+ years of programming practice and a huge library of concepts and techniques in their head from the start. Practice... hah, lies!

Here's a cherry tree I did the other day

Sweet. Looks like it should be possible to write a generator algorithm for creating such trees.

It's true. I used to be really crappy at drawing. Then I practiced. Now I'm just kind of crappy.

If you practice very hard, you may even become just crappy. But seriously, practice is the key (and theory doesn't hurt either).

So every Friday we do a thing at work. Sometimes it's play and critique video games, sometimes we just go for lunch.

Warn ! I not much of a good drawer

Ah but that's not true. Your scribblings clearly show you've got all the basic knowledge required to produce convincing representations of real life objects and characters on flat paper.
Doodling is also not about producing the highest quality of production ready work... for me at least, it's more about fun and free exploration without any worries about results.

J-Gamer said:

No you don't. Just keep practicing. The boat and the book you drew show you do understand how the three dimensions of space can be captured on a flat surface. Since these are doodles, the slight distortions don't matter much.

Well, these were done 20 years ago

The text is quite hard to read. Not sure if I get the humor in them. They're somewhat funny but in an insanely weird and a little sick way. :D

J-Gamer said:

A few years ago I tried a couple of cheap ones but in the end stuck with a Wacom Intuos 3 (they don't seem to manufacture these anymore though but there is a 4 available now, which is probably better anyway).
For starting, the lower price range Bamboo series is probably sufficient but I have no personal experience with those.

Elias said:

Drawing from life is an essential skill which I think every artist should acquire. It's good practice for really learning about how things look in all their detail or in abstraction. By drawing from life often, your mind will subconsciously build a library of objects, volumes, shapes, shadings, textures and whatnot from which it can then draw(hah!) when you create stuff freely.
When I start doodling and I don't have any idea what to draw (just the urge to draw something) I start by slapping random blobs of color onto the canvas and then usually after a few of those blobs I go "hm, this looks like..." and then just keep adding/changing and taking away from it until I get bored or run out of steam.

I'm much better at drawing something I can see, but I managed to free hand the lizard / dragon like creatures fairly well.

My favourite is the red dragon. There is of course room for improvement (as there always is) but for a freestyle doodle on paper and without the amenities of easy corrections which the digital medium brings with it, it's pretty good.

To everyone who hasn't drawn since school: Get back to it! It will improve your life (and if not that then at least it will improve your "programmers art"). 8-)

Nice catch Edgar, maybe you should reconsider drawing a little with us for fun !

@Elias: I would never achieve somthing like that using gimp ^^

@Neil and where are the up to date comic ? ?

For Paul, either it's an elfe or a vulcan I like how it's drawn. Add some background !! :-)

Trent, the color of your latest just killed my eyes héhé !

@Denis: thanks for the analysis. I will definitely have your text in mind the next time I'm discouraged to draw.
I also would like to know: what kind of tools you used to draw pictures like the first one ?

Currently, I am doing these doodles with ArtRage Studio Pro and my slightly aged Wacom Intuos3 tablet.

--- this one was done this morning (my mind currently seems to be stuck on drawing the same stuff over and over again (with slight variations though)) ---

I even recorded the whole process for this one but lost it again because CamStudio fucked up the video file (apparantly it used an ancient Microsoft CRAM codec which only supports file sizes far less than the 4GB it ended up being and no player seems to be able play it now (tried VLC, VirtualDub and even a few AVI fixing tools (DivFix++, AviMedic and a few others which names I forget already (some even contained malware) but nothing worked))).

Hey Dennis! that process video you posted is great! it seems you paint first and add line later, I do exactly the opposite ;D

I would like to make a process video like you did, can you explain how I can make it and what tools did you use?

By the way, the painting software you're using looks relly professional.

Please keep posting more process videos like this!!! :)

Dennis

it seems you paint first and add line later, I do exactly the opposite ;D

I don't always take that approach and usually do the lines first as well but I'm currently exploring all sorts of different possibilities, trying to speed up my process and finding new ways (new to me at least) to make stuff.

Quote:

By the way, the painting software you're using looks relly professional.

The software is indeed ArtRage Studio Pro as J-Gamer said (and I think I mentioned it earlier in some post) and it's in an affordable price range for 80 USD (as opposed to the hundreds of bucks something like Painter or Photoshop would cost). I like how the interface is intuitive and largely clutter free.

For recording the video I used CamStudio(OpenSource) software in combination with the Xvid MPEG4 CODEC (has to be installed separately) and in the CODEC configuration selected the profile "unrestricted".

For post processing the video (originally about two hours in length) I used VirtualDub(OpenSource) to change the source framerate and to speed up the target framerate.

If you need more details on using those tools feel free to ask (or google, heh ;) ).

That was the plan. ;D

Thanks for the video from me as well! One of the areas I want to significantly improve in is drawing trees and grass. This was my last attempt, for SpeedHack 2009, which I'm not especially proud of but it was also under a time restraint.

Edit: How much did you speed up the video?

GullRaDriel

Hell Dennis, thanks for those videos !!

I have a request though: if you feel nice enough to do it with a real pencil I would love to have a video of a draw !!

Dennis

One of the areas I want to significantly improve in is drawing trees and grass.

Those are two areas I need to improve on as well. My main problem with trees is that I still don't think sufficiently three-dimensional when I draw them and it's not easy to abstract hundreds of leafs and branches into a few well defined shapes without taking away the one characteristic thing which makes a tree look like a tree: leafs and branches! :D

When rendering grass I found the rule "less is more" applies and I only draw defined strokes of grass in areas where there is something else interesting enough to see. Somehow I seem to use the grass to emphasize other objects in a scene and leave all other areas covered by the grass empty (and then sometimes I use it to suggest z-depth as can be seen in the first Panzerwurm doodle earlier in this thread where patches of grass are big in the front and small in the back).

if you feel nice enough to do it with a real pencil I would love to have a video of a draw !!

Okay. Haven't drawn with a real pencil in a while but here we go.

Those antidepressants seem to kill every urge to draw, pixel or code and they make me very tired.

Still forced myself to some doodling today, not happy with the result but meh!. ;D

@GullRaDriel: I think translations would help getting what's going on.

Antidepressants aren't supposed to do that. The exact opposite actually. Now, anti-psychotics, those'll do exactly what you're saying.

I would talk to your Dr about trying something else that doesn't make you tired and apathetic. No one drug works the same for everybody, often you have to try one after the other until you get the desired effect.

Oh, but then it might just be temporary, IIRC you just started on them? If so, it may wear off in a couple weeks. So keep an eye on that. If they don't start actually helping after say a month, try something else.

GullRaDriel

@Denis: I was really lazy to translate, but meh, here I go, from left to right, up to down.

#1 and #2: I made these ones after one of the hobo I cross each day asked me for a cig and money, and shouted like mad that I have no heart when I said no. He followed me along the street for half a kilometer, shouting like a mad cow. I was near to crush him, but mind what, I wanted to take the train ^^
I'll only translate #2 as #1 is only a description of that particular hobo (bad hairs, bad smell in the mouth, crappy shoes, shit keeper panty, silly tatooes and all.

So, #2:
Him: "Hey, do you have any Euro ?"
Me: "Nooooo"
Him: "Then a cigarette ?"
Me: "Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo"
The guy is crushed on the wall, which is basically what I wanted but didn't do
Me: "Haaa, I feel better now. Silly hobo !!"

#3 was made for a day when our train company (SNCF) was protesting a new time. It says "Let's protest tomorow, for our working conditions"

#4: title "THE SALES" and in lower case "and the women".
The guy says: "You didn't pay too much ?"
The girl: "Ho no, I nearly buy nothing !"

And I'm done !!

I'll post my last doodle when it'll be finished in the evening.

Dennis

@Tomasu: The stuff I'm taking is called Trimipramine and according to online sources (wikipedia) it's anti-depressant and anti-psychotic and anti-something-else which I already forgot again. But yes, just started taking it and Doc said it would take about two weeks before it would start working to get the desired effect. Currently it just helps me with insomnia.

@GullRaDriel: Thank you for those translations.

Btw, this thread is a cookie thread, so if it ever ends, everyone who contributed with at least one self-made doodle will get credit.

I take anti-psychotics, anti-depressants, and anti-anxiety meds and it's taken me almost 10 years to get used to them. I used to be excessively tired all of the time, which was not fun especially when working full time. I don't have to work anymore, but I now run a business in my up time. One thing you definitely don't want to be doing is taking anti-psychotics in the morning as my doctor had prescribed for a few years. That will completely kill your day. Take them an hour before bed and you'll sleep well.

Without looking it up, I'm going to assume its a mood-stabilizer? Turns out it has anti-anxiety effects. Nice.

Yeah, I found the same thing. But even taking them at night made the next day rather bad. My new regimen is just a single mood-stabilizer.

It took at least two weeks (maybe 4) to get rid of the grogginess it came with. But it does help, so I'll keep taking it. At some point though I'm going to ask about changing it up, see if there's something that works better. Maybe a combination of things. I dunno.

@Dennis: are you going to finish the big drawing in there? I'm eager to see the result :)

Dennis

No, that was just garbage. I didn't know what to draw, just wanted to draw something, so I started by practicing strokes and then circles and the circles sort of started looking like an octopus (yeah I know mine only has seven tentacles, so it's only an almost-octopus) so I went on to draw that.

GullRaDriel

Yeah, the guy is impressive. No white pen at all.

I like the way you drawn your tank too, starting from the upper part is not something I would have done myself.

Trezker

May I use that tank as a concept for a 3D model?
I don't really have the energy for work outside my full time job, but in case I get an energy boost some time and feel like doing some modeling...

Dennis

@GullRaDriel: There are situations where it makes more sense to start with the bottom of an object. For example, when trying to find the correct position for something to add into an existing background, like a woman standing on a rock which is already there for example. In this case however, where the tank was just made up from scratch it did not matter which part to draw first.

@Trezker: Sure. Just make sure I get credited for the concept and I'd like to see the model when it's done. I thought about doing one myself but I haven't used blender in years and I don't feel like getting back into it right now.

Yes. The upper image is from Piazzale Michelangelo. There happened to be two married couples being photographed. It turned out very well, because you might just think that it's an old drawing with some people in old fashioned clothes. But there are some people in ordinary tourist clothes, too, if you look thoroughly.

Same crappy camera, paint.net and Inkscape:

I remember seeing clips on TV many years ago, showing cel animators moving a page rapidly back and forth as if they couldn't decide which page to look at, and if you did it 3 - 4 times a second it would work well enough to do the next frame of animation.

I haven't painted much (unless you count houses) but it feels fairly realistic. Eh, it's no masterpiece but it's better than the PDF program one.

Dustin Dettmer

Very nice. I miss the horse ridding woman :).

Johan Halmén

James, the reflexions of the Sun shouldn't look like they were painted on the water. I mean, the perspective thing is wrong here. The reflexion path almost never gets wider near the shore. It's actually the opposite. It's not the perspective that acts here, but the roughness of the sea. Other than that, I love the picture.

Matthew Leverton

Maybe it's a large spotlight going from the shore to the horizon.

Haha, good point. I'll do some drawing from observation next. I guess I've been getting carried away a bit. :)

Looks like I'm not the only one:

Dennis

That second one is much better than the first attempt. Great atmosphere in there.

About the reflection: It all depends on whether the see is rough or calm, the height of the sun, camera angle, clouds. Google image search for "sunset at sea".
Looks like sometimes there is even no perspective narrowing/broadening in the reflection at all and it's almost one plain thick rectangular area.

Johan Halmén

The rectangular area or parallel edges is kind of the normal one. And it might also widen towards the horizon, due to the structure of the water surface, i.e. more wind the farther out you are. But it should almost never widen towards the viewer, like it would follow some perspective lines. OTOH:

That linked image might be a true image, but somehow it looks faked.

Arthur Kalliokoski

That linked image might be a true image, but somehow it looks faked.

Consider that the more distant reflections "see" a narrower sun as only a tiny bit of the top of the sun is visible over the cloud top from that point.

Elias

Consider that the more distant reflections "see" a narrower sun as only a tiny bit of the top of the sun is visible over the cloud top from that point.

That has no clouds (that I could see at least) and yet is the same.

Arthur Kalliokoski
Elias said:

Indeed, the reflection of the sun near the horizon seems almost specular, with a round reflection. The waves diffuse reflection is like gl_shininess, and since the nearer reflections are more diffuse, I can only speculate that the water is glassy offshore.

Dennis

Maybe this is what's going on in the "widening" reflection case (which seems to be the exception when looking at pictures and sunset videos on the internet):

(exaggerated artificial waves and their simplified surfaces)
{"name":"604707","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/f\/7\/f7d15c0e60da9495b3d0a4c23abef4da.png","w":896,"h":724,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/f\/7\/f7d15c0e60da9495b3d0a4c23abef4da"}604707

Elias

That does sound like a plausible explanation. Also the clouds in the first and haze in the second linked picture above could play a role.

In the end it means the artist does have some freedom though - unless they draw a scene with parallel waves and a clear sky :)

Arthur Kalliokoski

Look at the images brought up by the icons to the left of Elias' link.

"Sea sundown" has waves approaching at an angle without significantly shifting the reflection to the right, as Dennis' idea would seem to imply.

{"name":"sea_sundown.jpg","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/6\/9\/69d0c33f3024c1b4e2a177f4850c74fd.jpg","w":640,"h":480,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/6\/9\/69d0c33f3024c1b4e2a177f4850c74fd"}sea_sundown.jpg

"Sea sunset horizon" shows one half of a very wide reflection cut off by clouds.

Dizzy Egg

Dennis that's real quality work!

Dennis

Thank you guys. :)

@Paul:
It is basically pixel art but instead of placing pixels I used nine basic tiles and locked each of them to a 5x5, 10x10 or 20x20 grid.

How I came up with the idea? No clue but my best guess is that I was subconsciously inspired by C64 artworks based on the alternate charset of that machine (which had some shapes similar to my tiles).

The software used to place the tiles is cosmigo Pro Motion. I did not use its tile painting mode though but the grid option to lock nine custom brushes(the tiles) to the three different grids and placed them on a single layer (often several tiles on top of each other to fake the illusion of an unrestricted number of layers).

The palette is based on the watercolors I had used in recent paintings and on the C64 palette(that's what the three gray shades are based upon).

There is a progress GIF for each (in the first one I changed some of the colors and the palette afterwards):

This thread makes me want to buy a graphics tablet. :'( I only read most of the first page though. After that I just skimmed the art. I wish I could draw half as well as some of the people here, and I imagine with enough practice I could, but there is no time for that! I can't even find time and energy to write code, let alone learn music or graphic art. :(

Andrei Ellman

I haven't made any recent doodles myself, but I'd just like to say that I'm really impressed with the stuff I've seen here. You guys should seriously consider getting jobs as concept-artists in the games or film industry (or elsewhere). You just need to build up a portfolio of sketches. One thing you could try is a concept-drawing of a battle taking place, as this is usually a scene with lots of action happening.

(I have not bought one myself)

james_lohr

I can highly recommend the Wacom Intuos4 (small) which I bought at some time during this thread. I don't see the point in anything bigger, because you only use a small part of the tablet anyway, and with anything bigger you can't reach your keyboard at the same time.

My brother has a full-sized one, and even he prefers using my small.

Elias

How do you use the tablet? Here it is mapped to translate to monitor positions, so a tablet with the same aspect ratio as the monitor would make most sense.

james_lohr
Elias said:

Yes, if they don't match then the only sensible thing to do is to have a "dead" area. Trying to draw properly with a stretched aspect ratio is a bad idea.

Luckily most monitors these days are very wide (for example, mine is 1920x1080), which fits my little tablet almost perfectly. :)

Elias

I see. I have a Wacom Bamboo and I set it so a strip to the right of the screen can't be reached with it - which can get annoying. Having the dead zone on the tablet instead of on the monitor sound like a better idea though... I must try that.
