Welcome to the OC Thread

Draw someone's OC or post your own. All skill levels are welcome.


1: Post a brief backstory if your OC has one.

2: Keep it fairly SFW, please.

3: This is NOT a request thread, also posting your OC also isn't a guarantee that someone will draw your character/ exchange deliveries. Regardless please consider exchanging drawings with your fellow anons as it's what keeps these threads going.

4: Character/ Lore Dumps are allowed, just be sure to specify that you're not posting with the expectation of getting deliveries.

5: Be sure to thank Drawfrens for their hard work as soon as you can, it's just common courtesy :)

>I really hate posting to social media, for some reason I think I'm burdening or annoying people by taking up space on their timeline or whatever.
It's the opposite. By not posting your work you are making people who follow you see a bunch of other dumb shit they're not interested in.
At least that's how it works for me, stupid memes everywhere when my artists are not posting art. Not sure how it works for people who follow 99999999999 artists.

Thank you for the thoughtful replies! I'll try to get over my dumb fear.

lol i love it
this is some pretty helpful advice. i really like your interpretation of him, especially because i like to make alternate versions of my characters, including fighting game versions.
also, i somehow didn't think of giving him an animal friend. i might give him a squirrel but a bird is a cute idea too!

i finished a delivery but the face looks fucked up and i can't figure out how to fix it for shit. i might try to keep fixing it or i might just bite the bullet and post it as it is.

Why You Should Copy Anime:

**Strive for quantity AND quality.**

Anime Studying:
>Copy anime references exactly and draw them from memory. Use illustrations, screenshots, anime figures, 3D models, etc.
>Don’t copy recklessly. Use construction, color theory, and other fundamental concepts to rehearse a drawing process that you can later easily manipulate for original artwork.
>Post all of your anime studies. Post even when you’re told not to. Create an art community that actually draws and improves together instead of just talking about it.
>Number your attempts and link to your previous posts.
>Critiquers should lead by example by posting their studies.

Does anyone actually hold up a pen and measure while using digital references? Feels like with the screen being so close, perspective is fucked if you actually hold out your arm straight and measure like you would a distant object.

Do I just eyeball it then overlay ref later to check?
>Do I just eyeball it then overlay ref later to check?
I measure with my pen yeah. Those relationships are technically 2d anyway.

>It's so fucking easy to pirate though

Not as easy as downloading and updating non-pirated software. I don't see the need to use VPN and private trackers, or to find and download from sketchy websites, then do multiple virus scans, just to install an illegal version of Photoshop and then doing the same for the updates, when there is free or cheaper software that you should be supporting that does the job just as well.
im using Rebelle/Photoshop now on my cintiq and Procreate on my ipad
What if I like to draw anime style characters but enjoy coloring/rendering them in a more painterly style?
What can't you get used to?
I'm sorry, it's illegal to use the painterly brushes and effects that CSP has.

Re-examining it, my problem is more with the strong shadow contrast on every surface I guess; the fact all the values kind of blend together made me mistakenly read it as hue shifting issues.

hmm how should I go about fixing the values blending together? I don't really even know where to start.

1. Don't post nudity or too revealing works.
When in doubt, post a censored copy here and link to the original off-site (e.g. catbox, imgur, etc).

2. **No Porn**.
No, not the retarded "anything with a body in it is porn" standard or "I see her underwear, MODSSS!!!" Use common sense.

3. Do not post sexualized child photo references. In fact, don't post pictures of children at all.

4. Due to the PPH (posts per hour/thread activity) of this general, please wait until the thread falls to around page 5 or 6 before making a thread. Use archived(moe) or warosu to retrieve the old threads.

If you really want to use this trick for characters with different heights, draw a line up of the characters first and note where the horizon falls on each character. Or just eyeball it.
yeah, yada yada, you will never be a jap, you know the drill
i hate weebs so much its unreal
yeah, YOUR eye level you nigger dick slurping retard
i said characters eye levels, theres no reason whatsoever a characters eye level would line up with the horizon line in a picture
How about them being another human being of a similar height to you, you knuckledragging fucking ape.

Why is everything Russians post like they’re playing an improv game that requires they incorporate at least 3 key buzzwords into every paragraph?

And what are you talking about m8 Russians are literally the most self-destructive people on the planet. Why you think the Soviets plied everyone with cheap vodka for 80 years? Why do you think the British plied Ireland with whiskey for 500 years?

Because it keeps people compliant and distracted and self-destructive! If everyone is too busy either being irrationally drunk or too hungover to function, they don’t have time to organize a coup or really even get a meaningful bearing on the nature of the situation they’re trapped in.

Meanwhile pretty much every government in the world is opposed to LSD or mushrooms being mainstream because they make people way less compliant and less easy to manipulate.

Your illiteracy isn’t anybody else’s problem. Nobody is making you come to an English-language image board intended for discussion, and it’s not their fault that you struggle with the language.

If you want easily translatable quips to parrot there’s better places to go.

I actually believe this is someone else shitposting to make anons here look bad because the same thing happened to me too. Anyone with half a brain cas see that the responses are deliberately phrased to bait and no one who posts here for real would talk like that.
>western standards of white beauty
The posts "pretending to be me" had the same phrasing and buzzwords. However, I don't think it's one individual boogeyman bad guy with some evil scheme, but probably just a handful of unrelated faggots who wanted to troll.
Actually I'd say writing a reply like (just using your number as an example):
is actually a way to lose. Because I personally am too lazy to scroll back up and check who ">5869812" was. I'd only remember what ">5869812" had said, so I'd think they had the last word and won.

It does seem lulz-efficient. They just had 2 short posts, and got back:

If that's not good technique, what is it? I'm writing down his method for later...
Well I am new to this board, been on 4chan very sporadically since 2011. And my seneschal wisdom tells me you have to be right, at least some times.

Actually though, I'd be more concerned about impersonation trolling on this board versus trashfires like /pol/. It's not just that /ic/ seems to move much slower, so there's more time available...
>ic is for posting/critiquing art
>is like a type of "identity" for the artist, even if they're technically anonymous

So basically yeah, you can repost artwork and it feels more "real". "Oh they posted work, must be the artist." And additionally, the target would take it more personally since it's their artwork associated with the troll now.

But the last thing is, art types (including me) scare me. Whereas a /pol/tard's joy is saying the words faggot and tranny and rope... etc. without getting banned off facebook...
>art kids are I feel like deeply insane. they wouldn't stop at just swears and slurs. they wanna ruin a life, to fuel "the darkness within their artwork" (or some shit)
I'm >>5876438 and >>5876465
I guess I am feeding into it by responding but, I wasn't trying to pass an opinion on the rat poster, just a general thought. My recent experience with the online art community was being in a ill-advised, Stan Twitter -themed pisscord server. Kids cancelling slightly older kids for "pRoBLemATiC" behavior.

And before that I had seen all these videos on the Creepshow Art lady from YouTube. Very boring to watch, so I don't know a lot about it. But basically yeah I would be scared of impersonation.

But I thought the rat poster's "Cheesed off" pun was actually real (at least as presented.) Wouldn't artistic types be the EXACT type of person to roleplay as their OC using annoying speech patterns?? Like when an anime cat girl has dialogue with "-nya" at the end of each sentence, or in place of any "na" sounds.
