CS - Chikka Guy 2.0 by scrotumnose CS - Chikka Guy 2.0 by scrotumnose
hello, my name is dave, and i am a Reyyaholic.

yeeeaaahhh... since i've been at chikka for nearly two years (WTF), i decided to give the guy a revamp. it's nice to draw things you used to draw before, to see how far you've gone.

the ORIGINAL drawing (yecchh) of this guy is here: ---> [link]

i'ma put the comparison up as a scrap, stay tuned! or not.

The first one is very good, and you seem to have improved alot since then!
I love your colouring, it's so warm and feel-good!
I also love the pose you drew him in, he looks so relaxed~

:D glad you noticed! hehe, i learned how to use the corkboard because of nicc. NOW, i've been trying to wean myself from it, and make those texture-ish qualities on my own, so to speak.


but sometimes, it's just irresistable. :P



and yes. yellow is the new black, in the world of scrotums. :heart:

yeah, i think Nicc has spawned a whole new generation of corkboard users... or 'corkers'. haha.
my feelings on using textures is WHY spend 6 hours creating the same effect from scratch when you can get it by using a photo in 3 seconds?

i know it's not truely 'artistic'... but in the 'real world' where money = time, if you can create the same effect in less time, why be all purist? time for that when you've made your millions and returned to hobby art :B

oh yeah, totally, i agree.... there's no need to be unnecessarily artsyfartsy when these kinds of shortcuts exist. let's all think practially, and all.

but.. the reason why i try to make these effects on my own is the process involved. not the endpoint. like... strengthening my own skills by teaching myself how these things are done, and as such getting a deeper insight into this whole murky swamp that we call art. y'see, i didn't start REALLY drawing until i joined deviantart. i mean, i loved doodling in my notebook at school, but it never went further than that. and as such, i honestly can't use pencils and other traditional materials for the life of me. so. i'm kind of learning backwards here... and me trying to find out how to make these 'looks' on my own is it.

i'd like to have the talent to make an effect like textures without having to rely on photos all the time.

Wow, it's matured so nicely! Fine wine and cheese as your art, man.

Really, the energy is still there and the curves blend with those comfy warm colours sublimely. And the curls in the paisely-esque pattern of the background draw to the character and help emphasize his almost too adorable grin nicely, too. His stance is well put as...well. -^o^

Terrific image!

hehe, ack!

this is a pretty deeply-engraved habit of mine. i pretty much never like how my drawings look after i draw em. like, part of the reason why i like uploading new stuff onto dA is because it replaces my most current pic, which i get tired of. ADD, maybe? :P

I am the same way. Sometimes I consider just uploading any little scribble just to get my ugly "recent deviation" off the front page.

I want to change my featured deviation soo badly but it has the most favs of all my work and to be honest I know I would hate anything I picked. But try and keep in mind that we all watch you because we heart your stuffs, even the old stuffs. ^_^
