Hello all, Mr. BV / Blue here. :D
 
I've been semi-active here on the art forums, so maybe I should make my own thread.
  
I've played since early 2005, here and there, and for a long time I wanted to create art for RO.  However, I had no confidence, I never posted anywhere until recently.
I have my own art site at tumblr, but I don't like tumblr very much so I hope to have my own page soon.
I do art as a hobby.  I don't know if I want an art career, so for now I do it for fun.

 

I'm mostly an afk player, leaving my characters around to sit and look awesome.  :D I go online every once and a while for events and to get qt afk headgears, and maybe even sometimes I'll level alts.  I also use Ragnarok as a way to spend time with my friends during off time.
 
I draw other things besides RO, maybe other games I like, or original works.  I also like cats and sheep/rams, so they appear a lot in my art.

Currently, commissions [closed].  I may change my mind unpredictably, or if there's interest.
 
Ragnarok is full of many inspiring places and ideas, I hope it can continue to motivate me to try my very best.  I'm happy to be here with so many talented artists. :D
 
Examples of my past and current work.  Please feel free to comment and critique, I want to improve as an artist.

Not exactly ragnarok related, I attempted a very quick and rough water practice.

Hey Ruzhwind :D

 

after our conversation last week I attempted drawing in MS Paint, see what it's like.  The tablet doesn't work well on it though, I kept having problems, so I may not finish it LOL

Well, I can get my style in MS Paint, I guess, it's more of a technology problem.  It has a problem doing what I want it to do, so the pencil jumps around.  Sometimes it won't even make a line, even if I draw it many times.  Probably a problem with the pressure sensitivity of the tablet.

 

It won't be my main program, but I enjoy trying new things with art.  Thanks for the inspiration. :D

I was going through old files and found some of my old RO art from 2014-2015.
I like to think I've improved, especially on anatomy and composition.  I sense a lot of self consciousness and that there wasn't much interest to fully experiment by looking at these.  I added in signature today because I didn't use to sign my art, I wasn't posting it.

Hey all, Mr. BV here :D I haven't been here in months! I logged in today and got an achievement, so that's on iRO now. lol

I made a RO sketch to practice coloring, so it's not very finished.  At first I said to myself, I will not use purple and blue shadows! LOL

I hadn't done this lighting before, it was fun to try something new.  Thank you for looking, helpful comments and critique are welcome.

 

I hope there will be a Halloween contest  :p_devil:

Hey, blue! Welcome back to the forums! It's really been a while. You're latest art is a nice comeback. What I like best is the way you rendered the sky and clouds and the cotton candy texture of amistr. The trees look like they emit a dark aura like an evil forest.

Eyy if it isn't ROCK! :D
I saw some of your new art, your style has gotten even better!  You were already very talented, how is it possible?
The zoom ins on your art look so clean.  Also your entry for the costume contest is cool, hopefully you can finally get your hat.

Thank you for the comments! Amistr in the game is very fluffy I think.
The forest is very dark, I tried to recreate those days I would hide in Labyrinth Forest. :D

Thank you for looking and for the comments; I do add a lot of colors in the process. I can't seem to color things in a real way.
But "heavenly kaleidoscopic dimension"!  That's one of the coolest things someone has said about my art!  It tells me I am getting closer to my goal.
I haven't been here since March so maybe that's why ?

I looked for your art thread, and saw you made a post for the Valentine Event. How cool!
I joined that contest actually, it was really fun to draw for. :D

That contest was fun indeed, but sadly at that time all I had were my cousin's coloured pencils, so that was all I could do :v recently I got a drawing tablet, so I can finally explore the world of digital drawing, try new techniques and find my own style... and my greatest obstacle now is coloring! all those brushes are confusing tbh and I still have to get used to draw while looking in front of me and not on paper (that is pretty tough bahahah)

 

I really wish I could learn to colour that playfully, the art is so vibrant looking  :p_laugh: 

After all art is made to express ourselves, and what is the best way for a colourful soul to do that?  :heh:  Keep up the good work! :no1:

I see, the first hard part is going from the hand to the screen for sure!  I started with drawing from a mouse almost 13 years ago, I began using a tablet maybe 8 years ago.  I took many long breaks so I had to relearn many things all the time lol.  It took a lot of experiments before I thought my work was good to share with others.
The best way to learn brushes is through experiments, change the settings and you might find a tool you will come to love.  What program do you use by the way?  I like to use sai for digital painting and PS for editing, but people have different preferences.  There are even artists who create amazing art with MS Paint. :D
 
Yes, art is a great tool for expression!  I look forward to your future posts.  :no1:

Aw you flatter! xD But thanks. I guess going on an art break has its benefits (it's evident in yours, too! :no1: ). I noticed that I don't struggle as much as I did in the past in my new art projects as I learned (and still learning) to just enjoy the art process without stressing myself if I can't get something right in my first several tries. Also my recent artworks are practically products of experimental work--the lineart, the drawing style, coloring, etc. And, honestly and gladly, I also find the outcome satisfactory; and gladder still that others also feel the same way about it. ^^ And thanks again and for wishing me well. Hoping.

 You should create more artworks and participate in the Costume Contest as well! Looking forward to your outputs!

I'm using Krita, it has WAY TOO MANY BRUSHES, but with every new work I try to use new ones, they all give different effect and feeling to the colours and it is quite fun to experiment! I submitted today my entry for the headgear contest and I coloured it very quickly, so it's a bit of a mess, but I think it leaves something to the imagination as well as submitting something too detailed is pointless (transposition to in-game sprite removes literally all the details :0); the brushes I used there are 2B pencil for the lining, watercolour for coloring and a bit of blending here and there  :p_smile:

 

I like the program though,it has an autosave feature which is a bit annoying but a lifesaver at the same time, just needs to be set up not to autosave every 5 minutes, the little lag you get by that is quite annoying bahaha especially when you're inking  :pif:  It's a free software so you can try it and tell how you feel about it!

Might try SAI as well though, a lot of friends of mine use it  :no1:

Aw. How I wish Clip Studio Paint has that autosave feature as well (that doesn't overwrite the actual file but merely creates a recovery file in case of unfortunate events). Twice did it happen to me that I lost all major progresses of my commissioned projects due to a sudden freeze and consequent restart and I had to start over again from 90% progress to 20%.

Oh cool, star related things are interesting, so I think your idea is very cool. :D

I agree, too much detail cannot be done for head gears in the game.  I have been surprised by some, tho!  I haven't been able to come up with an idea yet but I might try, if I have the time.  It would likely be spooky or animal themed but the game already has so many.  :hmm:

 

I might try Krita, I like to try a lot of programs.  I've wanted to draw something in MS Paint too, because it's very limited it might be fun.

I think SAI is very easy once you try it for a while. :D  I use Luminosity a lot, I think PS Luminosity is not as good as SAI's, at least for what I want.

Twice did it happen to me that I lost all major progresses of my commissioned projects due to a sudden freeze and consequent restart and I had to start over again from 90% progress to 20%. 

I agree with this!  I wish Sai had an autosave.  I try to remind myself every time I make a lot of change, maybe once or twice an hour.  I save a lot in games so I guess the anxiety is the same for my drawings LOL.

I think I had that happen with one of my Valentine' drawings.

 

 

 

Also I wanted to post a WIP progress :D  I'm happy with the colors on this one so far.
