Bark Mark II - Draw this again Meme by ghost085
Bark Mark II - Draw this again Meme
Hi everybody. I was a little bored and had zero ideas for a new drawing so I decided to redraw one of my old pictures. I chose this one because it featured two characters and because quite frankly, there was plenty of room for improvement.  I tried to be a little more true to the show design, but took some liberties with the proportions.

I hope you tell me what you like about it and how much better or worse you think it is, compared to the old one. Here is the link to the old one: Bark

Making the sketch: 1 hour
Vectorizing it: 2 hours
Coloring: 2 hours

Hit the DOWNLOAD button to get the full resolution picture.

- And now the technical stuff (I like sharing these facts, maybe someone finds them interesting):
I drew this picture with Serif DrawPlus X5. I stopped using Inkscape because it runs a little slow on my PC (I have a Core i5 which should be enough, but that doesn't seem to be the case). It's a shame really because Inkscape it's a great tool.  But DrawPlus is great too, specially for the kind of drawings I do (simple lines). It's super fast and easy to use, and it got a great feature that allows you to have lines with variable width (althought it doesn't show much in this particular picture, even when I took and lot of time adjusting it).
DrawPlus isn't free, but there is a starter edition that allows you to do simple stuff. I bought the full version because it was on a sale ($15) and I couldn't resist.

The coloring was done on Gimp.

Lor - Not so bare eyes
The final version of the drawing. Done with Inkscape and GIMP. Changed the eyes a little, to make her look more like she does in the show and corrected the arms and hand. Had to make an half-assed background, but that's nothing new coming from me ;)

Are those Tish's glasses?

Edit #1: Some minor adjustments. I changed a little the shape of the eyes, fixed the left elbow and made the right sleeve a little bigger.

Lor McQuarrie quick sketch
A little sketch I did in my phone with autodesk sketchbook. I will try to finish it with Inkscape and Gimp. I still have to add glasses to her (that s why her arm is in that position) and actually draw the hand.

I upload this because I'm trying Sketchbook submitting feature.
Short Hair by ghost085
Short Hair
A drawing I did a long time ago. I vectorized it with Inkscape and painted it with Gimp. This time I didn't use PowerStrokes in Inkscape. I just duplicated the lineart layer and then adjusted the lines to simulate variable thickness. It's not as convenient as using powerstrokes (any major adjustment must be done twice) but it's more comfortable.

This is an hairstyle that really I love to draw, Yagami Hikari (Digimon) made me appreciate characters with short hair like this. I cut a lot of corners in the end, I guess I really need to practice on my shadings and backgrounds.

Hope you like it.
Not much of an entry. It's been very desolate in here.

I just read all the journals I wrote. It's kind of funny to see the things I liked back then and the things I like right now. Some of the things that I was really obsessed with are:
  • Ichigo Mashimaro: REALLY loved it back then, Barasui was an inspiration for me. Haven't watched it for a long while (the show I mean. I never met Barasui before... bad joke, I know).
  • Teen Titans: even after all these years I still like them. BTW I find it funny that some old fans hate Teen Titans Go (I love it). Maybe they can understand now how the old Teen Titans fans from the 70's and 80's felt about the idea of a cartoon that made their beloved characters look like bufoons.
  • Digimon: I rewatched season 1 to 3 recently. After 10 years I still LOVE these shows and its characters, and watching it in it's original language was like watching a whole new show. Ruki, Sora and Hikari Forever!!!.
  • Anime in general: I still like anime, but it came to a point where I thought that the only shows that were worth my time were japanese. I'm trying to change that watching MLP , The Weekenders, Kim Possible, Teen Titans Go and some others. Maybe not the best shows ever but I love them anyway.
I should write more often in here just for the heck of it. It's very entertaining to read these entries when time has passed and you realize how much things have changed.
  • Mood: Lazy
  • Listening to: La tremenda corte
  • Reading: Nothing
  • Watching: My Little Pony and The Weekenders
  • Playing: Dust: An Elysian Tail and NFS The Run

Hi. :wave: Awesome gallery! Sorry I don't have time to comment on all the favs I made. ^^;
But a fav does mean I loved it muchly. :nod:
Your Teen Titans work has helped inspire me to draw Raven again after many years in a Titans slump. :XD:
ghost085 Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2009
Well, thanx for all your favs :)

I have almost forgotten Teen Titans at all. Almost. I still come up with some jokes, but I don't feel encouraged enough to draw them.

Shame one me, I used to be so hardcore when it came to Teen Titans.

You're welcome. :lol:

Well I had practically forgotten their existence, but then I found a place where you can watch all the episodes online and got really into it again. :XD:

Thanks for the inspiration all the same. :)
