Sprink 05 - Justice by Cenomancer Sprink 05 - Justice by Cenomancer

So, I’ve been told I don’t draw Judge Zarnstein enough. 

I realized it was true. I didn’t use any ruler and that was a mistake, my bad. I’m also experimenting a bit on the uniform because I can. 

Hero by the hammer in yo’ face.

For someone who didn't use a ruler your lines are amazingly straight...

I hate rulers and I hate overly straight lines I admit but sometimes it looks just cleaner with a ruler... actually I think it's mainly the word "Justice" up there that's crooked. I'll edit it when making a final version and just use a font instead.

No worries, I understand! Back at school we were told to freehand draw where possible; still, I'm amazed at how straight your lines are. You must have great arm strokes!

I think it's fine but do what you must! :D

We were mainly told that something can be technically correct but if it looks wrong, it IS wrong. I don't remember wether or not we were told to prevent from using rulers... I just... well sometimes I WILL use a ruler for my lines and ink them without a ruler just not to have an overly straight look o_o I already did use rulers and it was fine too...  ha I don't know /o/

Nah, my sketches are super messy, one could say "unsure" lines as I already heard in French. I never cared much about it because that's how I work. I know I draw a bit unconventionally during the process but heh, it's the result that counts I guess. My drawings just look super fugly when I do them until the final bits xD even to me. When I'm about to finish I'm always "oh damn, totally messed up this time". 

You think it's fine because... because extern look /o/ I'm the same when it comes to your pictures that you feel "messed up".

I think it depends, really. We were told not to be overly reliant on rulers and to practice using our strokes to get nice lines since rulers make everything appear, well, lifeless and super stiff (no pun intended)

Oh, do you mean 'feathering' when your lines look like chicken scratch? Or are they just messy scribbles? I wouldn't worry too much so long as the final product looks great :D But I understand the importance of getting a solid foundation working first and foremost WITH a process you're comfortable with.

I guess we're good at faking good? <_>

Yeah, that's kind of what I think as well. Plus 100% straight lines just rarely ever exist in real life, that might explain x)

Messy scribbles mainly /o/ I never really learnt any method in art class since we were taught "global" principles but not technicity. College has got waaaay more different ways to teach than art schools... Still, I wouldn't record and show my process when drawing, it's boring to look at. 

I'm guessing so ? Haha
