Title: Grail makes doodlies?!
Post by: Grail on February 15, 2007, 03:13:03 AM
Hallo everyone. As many of you know, Grail goes to school. Grail takes notes. And when there are notes, there is an unbearable, agonizing boredom that tears at Grail's heart. When this occurs, Grail makes doodlies.

ENJOY PLX  :troll:

Notepage scans  one (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Grenga/Stuff/Gutsdoodlie.jpg), two (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Grenga/Stuff/Doodlies.jpg), and three (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Grenga/Stuff/VoidBakes.jpg)!

This is mostly just to get the ball rolling... I'm hoping to set aside time to make some real stuff in the future. :void:

For the sake of posting, (as the first person to actually see the pictors) I'll say what i always do: EHEHEHEHE.

I love them! Grail, your work has made the Oekaki an awesome place! Your recent contributions has given it new life, even your doodles are amazing! The weird thing is that I was picking MY nose when I clicked on notepage 1, kinda scared me. I love the others too, especially Rakshas. Always dreaming of getting head from Griffith, what a naughty boy he is. Love ya Grail!

These are just great especially the second one. I for one would really love to see what your serious work looks like (as in not a doodle, not like without humor). Thanks for these, they've brightened up my morning, post more!!!

Anyway, thought I'd make the most of my free time over this long weekend and made a teeny-tiny comic. Happy President's Day (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Grenga/Stuff/CookieIncidentfinal.jpg)! :void:

Page 3 (http://www.skullknight.net/grail/ZoddandSkully.jpg),
Page 4 (http://www.skullknight.net/grail/HoochieSlan.jpg) - This one I ended up scratching out because I messed up on the booblies, but you can still probably make it out. :carcus:
Aaand Page 5 (http://www.skullknight.net/grail/SerpWafflyGriff.jpg) - This wasn't really intended to be funny, I just wanted to draw some faces.

Last but not least, Here's something I worked on about 6 months ago, but gave up on because Skully looked a bit like a moldy piece of bread. I tried fixing it up a little. So without further ado, I give you TEATIME! (http://www.skullknight.net/grail/teatime(final).jpg) :>

Did you do that all in photoshop, or is that a watercolor enhanced with PS? Doesn't really matter, since it's awesome, I'm just curious.

I actually did it in two different versions of Painter. When I first started working on it, I was using Painter Essentials 2, but a month ago or so, I invested in a copy of Painter X and gave it another go. 8]

A worthy investment, imo.  Thats a tricky program to learn (or at least it is for me, coming from PS) but some great stuff can be done on it.

Yeah, I'm slowly learning how to use all the different tools. It's a bit overwhelming, since I'm also used to Photoshop, but reading up on tutorials helps a lot. c:

Also, I thought I'd add a frame of a God Hand cameo (http://www.skullknight.net/grail/Youdaman.jpg) in an otherwise unrelated comic.

Post by: spineylamb on July 21, 2008, 07:09:11 PM
Yay for comic conclusion <3
I love the concept for the Casca painting. I also love how you did her hair, eyes, lips, and skin. Also the swoooord (I actually like how that sword looks over the Dragonslayer, alas). As far as critiques, I'm going to say I think the tip of her nose should be a bit rounder or something... it just doesn't look like Casca's nose. Or maybe it's that it's too long (it's probably the shiny on the top of it that gives it the "too-sharp" look?) Also, maybe her torso's a bit too skinny towards the bottom (although that might just be a style thing) but otherwise it's lovely.

I'm sure you do this already, but to give -yourself- a sort of fresh eyes look at your drawings, try flipping the pic horizontally in Photoshop/whatever you use. I feel like it helps me anyway  :casca:
Title: Re: Grail makes doodlies?!
Post by: Grail on July 22, 2008, 06:02:25 PM
Thanks for the thoughtful critique, Spiney. I have been having some trouble with Casca's nose and chin, so I'll continue to work on that.

As for her waist, I was pretty happy with how that turned out, actually. I might use that flipping trick you mentioned to double check things, though, good idea!

Hallo everyone. As many of you know, Grail goes to school. Grail takes notes. And when there are notes, there is an unbearable, agonizing boredom that tears at Grail's heart. When this occurs, Grail makes doodlies.

ENJOY PLX  :troll:

Notepage scans  one (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Grenga/Stuff/Gutsdoodlie.jpg), two (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Grenga/Stuff/Doodlies.jpg), and three (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Grenga/Stuff/VoidBakes.jpg)!

This is mostly just to get the ball rolling... I'm hoping to set aside time to make some real stuff in the future. :void:

I love your artwork, Grail!  Keep up the great work!  Btw, are those notes for Business & Economics Math?  :guts:

Thanks guys! I'm working on a Guts picture right now, which isn't going as smoothly as Griffith did... I ended up saving the botched attempts, since they look so ridiculous that I think you'll all get a kick out of them. :void:

And Gaucho, you're quite right! I ended up getting a C+ in that class, unfortunately... probably because I was doodling Berserk characters instead of paying attention to the examples. :guts:

I am only sad I didn't find this golden thread till today.  Really, freakin' funny.  I laughed out loud several times.  I love the expressions on skull knights face, I mean, he shouldn't really have an expression, but it works.  :SK: I also really dig your most recent picture of Griffith.  Interesting style.  Maybe you should develop upon it. 

Nice job on the painting.  Assuming it's a wip, but here's some thoughts:  The sternocleidomastoid, The most prominent muscle in the neck seems off.  These muscles are identical on either side and both flow along the neck, down in-between a notch created by the clavicle meeting upon the sternum.   (Feel your throat and how those muscles meet your chest for reference, or look in the mirror) on your painting they seem to stem off to both sides of this dip.

Your shoulders seem high and un-natural, primarily because the clavicle is flowing into the middle of them where is should curve slightly up and meet its high point at the acromion on top the shoulder, where it then curves down and into the shoulder blade. Forgive me misc google result.  See here for ref.

http://www.eorthopod.com/images/ContentImages/shoulder/shoulder_arthroplasty/shoulder_arthroplasty_anatomy01.jpg

The nose seems a little elongated, although I do recognize it's stylized.  The hand looks a little large I think, although this is kind of an illusion created by her hand positioning.  She's spreading her fingers apart across her sword at a wide angle, and in doing so it makes the hand look bigger than it really is.  The fingers, when relaxed tend to curve inward toward the palm and are closer to each-other.  Also, you have your light source coming from the left in this picture, as if she's being illuminated by a torch or candle.  It looks good.  Her forearm looks like it's detached because you have a dark shadow running all the way across it to the elbow.  Also keep in mind that a warm light source is going to create cool shadows, so hit her darks with a little bit of moonlight blue to really make her pop.

That being said, I think it's lovely.  Keep going.  Good artists to reference: Andrew Loomis, George B. Bridgeman.  I hope this post helps you! They are minor critiques in the overall scope of things.

Peace to your mother.

Hey Aphasia, thanks a ton for such detailed constructive criticism! :casca: I can tell you that the more I looked at that one, the more obvious the anatomical errors were, so I think I'll start a new version from scratch with your pointers in mind. I've also taken a life drawing class in the year that I've failed to update this thread ( :farnese: ), so I think the understanding I've gained regarding bone/muscle placement and proportions will make my job a bit easier there.

Anyway, thanks for all the feedback guys. I realized that I've drawn a lot of fanart (both finished and unfinished) that hasn't been posted here yet, so I'm currently going through my folder and picking out a pretty wide variety of stuff, going back as far as two years. Time flies! :isidro:

In the meantime, I fiiiinally finished another page for that Skully n' Waffles comic that I was making for the comic contest earlier this year. For those that want a refresher, here's the series thus far:

Pages 1 (http://www.skullknight.net/grail/SlanComic1(final).jpg), 2 (http://www.skullknight.net/grail/SlanComic2(final).jpg), 3 (http://www.skullknight.net/grail/SlanComic3(final).jpg), 4 (http://www.skullknight.net/grail/SlanComic4(final).jpg).

And here's the new addition (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Grenga/SlanComic5final.jpg)! Poor Skully. :judo:

Man, you guys are rough on poor old Slan! Despite what Skully says, I think she's just a burnt out old chainsmoker who likes to hang around in big t-shirts and go sale-hunting at the local shopping center. If you ask me, that hornball schtick is just an act that she plays up to keep her job. After 216+ years, she's gotta be TIRED.

... Aaanyway, made a new comic (http://www.skullknight.net/grail/Outsourcing1(final).jpg) to distract myself from having to draw and re-draw Skully's armor. Unfortunately, it turned out that the Tapasa weren't much easier. :sad: Those lumps always did weird me out.

Post by: Grail on August 03, 2010, 06:18:15 PM
My god, it's been a while! So, now that I have some time, I decided to upload a bunch of old doodles that I never got around to uploading. Some of these suckers go back to '07-'08... oh, the memories! :griffnotevil: Let's take a stroll down memory lane, shall we?

(http://www.skullknight.net/grail/Youdaman.jpg)

This was part of a comic I drew for a friend's birthday. What better present than to have the God Hand show up and pay you vague compliments? :guts:

(http://www.skullknight.net/grail/Judeau1_1.jpg)

Another oldie. Must've been feeling sentimental! :judo:

(http://www.skullknight.net/grail/Nagbag1.jpg)

This serves as a reminder to do more Carcus fanart.

(http://www.skullknight.net/grail/GutsPuckSparklies.jpg)

And... well... I think I was doing some kind of color experimentation, here. At least I hope so. :farnese:

(http://www.skullknight.net/grail/Gutsdoodlie2clip.jpg)

More Guts! I believe that this was meant as a counterpart to "White Hawk (http://www.skullknight.net/grail/Griff1_2.jpg)."

(http://www.skullknight.net/grail/Gutsclip2_2.jpg)

And... I can't look at that face without cracking up. :ganishka:

(http://www.skullknight.net/grail/ContestSkully1_maybe.jpg)

And more recently, this was part of a new comic I wanted to make involving Skully, Mr. Waffles, and a certain fake emperor. I think I decided to hold off on it until I conclude my other story.

(http://www.skullknight.net/grail/GriffJeazuzcliplarge.jpg) (http://www.skullknight.net/grail/GriffJeazuzclip_1.jpg)

I don't really remember what this was supposed to be about... I think that episode 292 had just come out and I was so excited that I had draw something to celebrate.

(http://www.skullknight.net/grail/DaddysBoy1.jpg)

Here's one of the most recent ones. One day I got to thinking, why isn't there that much fanart for the demon baby? I think he's got lots of comedic potential! I stand by my statement.

-----

Now we're pretty much caught up! As far as things I'd like to do, well, I do have a request from Link that I'm working on, and there's still that Skully and Waffles comic to finish. I have a few other things that I should post, but this one's long enough as it is. :slan:

One of my favorite things about your colored art is how you ... well... color it! Your choice of colors gives the piece a real organic-looking fluffiness to it. I love Puck's glow.

You did a great job with these two characters. Guts looks amazing. Great attention to detail and his expression is classic Guts. One detail I like is his thick eye outlines. Also, the scars all over his body are a great touch!

You're a good egg, Grail.
Title: Re: Grail makes doodlies?!
Post by: Aazealh on August 27, 2010, 01:47:49 PM
I like how you drew Guts' face and I think you do a great Puck. If I had to criticize something it would be the arms. The way his right fist manages to be in-between the artificial forearm and the bandaged arm proper strikes me as unnatural. The way they're joined to the shoulders also seems a little off somehow, but maybe that's just the angle that confuses me.

Good work in any case. :guts:

Nice work Grail! It's always nice to see your art style applied to Berserk.  Quite refreshing, really.  I don't know how you'd describe the texture on the rocks but I really love it.  It's like a faint watercolor/dappled grain or something.

Have fun!

Post by: Grail on January 05, 2011, 04:57:15 AM
Thanks for the kind words and comments, guys! Now, to revisit a certain something that I really should have finished AGES ago, but never got around to. Hopefully I'll be able to update with a page a day for the next few days, or until I'm able to finish the whole ridiculous, ridiculous story. Here  (http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?topic=7622.75)are the first pages again in case you'd like a refresher! Looking back, I'd like to think that I'm a little less sloppy these days. :slan:

(http://www.skullknight.net/grail/BaseballSchierke copy.jpg)
This was done for Gobs, who wanted to see Schierke in his favorite baseball team's jersey! I accidentally made her look a little too old, but maybe she'll grow into it. :griffnotevil:

Done for yesmilord. I'm kinda proud of the fire effects in this one!

For Oburi, of course. Smoke blowing from the ears is apparently a going theme, here.

But, what about Griffith? :griffnotevil:
Now there's a question! :void:

I can't make any promises about that now, but I do have a new page (http://www.skullknight.net/grail/SlanComic10(final).jpg) ready, which I hope is some consolation.

I'm also afraid that I have a few other commitments that will make it difficult to update for the next week or so, so apologies in advance.

Awww. :judo: :judo: Yeah, the whole reason I made this comic was because I wanted explore the Demon Child's feelings a little more, albeit in a pretty silly way. There's not much fanart of him out there, either. Maybe it's because he looks kinda like a stuffed turkey? :sad:

You could replace this:

Aw shucks, guys! :ganishka: Thanks again for the comments. I've actually gone back and made some minor additions to the comic, now that I've had more time to take another look at it. Most noticeably, I've reduced the max size so that it's easier to deal with when you zoom in. Otherwise, it's just tiny details that nobody will really care about (though it'll make me feel a lot better!).

Hey everybody, I'm back with a few doodles. The first is one that I came up with and finished in about a day (which is pretty odd for me, nowadays), and the other has been 2 years or so in the making. :carcus:

(http://www.skullknight.net/grail/Dontlookdown.jpg)

Pictured here is team Guts trying out a new method of long-distance transportation: the Serpicopter. You can also take it as a short visual essay about the relationships between the various characters.

Next, Darklink requested this ages and ages ago and I finally got around to finishing it. Thanks for being patient! :guts:

Post by: IncantatioN on September 15, 2012, 03:15:27 PM
Casca got me in splits. The God Hand one is so darn rich in it's textures. How was it accomplished (in layman's terms)? Looks water-colored ^_^. Did you paint it or was this all on the computer?
Title: Re: Grail makes doodlies?!

The God Hand one is so darn rich in it's textures. How was it accomplished (in layman's terms)? Looks water-colored ^_^. Did you paint it or was this all on the computer?
It was all done digitally, yeah. The textured effect is a result of a few things:

First, I placed a free texture image that I've downloaded on top of the God Hand picture, and made it about 5% opaque so that you can just barely make it out. I also put that texture layer in "overlay" mode in Photoshop, which means that it doesn't obscure the actual God Hand image at all, but it still adds the texture.

Second, I applied a blur and a filter (I don't remember which one, exactly, but I think it might have been plastic wrap) onto a copy of the God Hand image, and took it down to 20% opacity so that the original image wouldn't be too heavily affected. Sometimes I like to mess around with different filters just to see what happens, and this time it turned out pretty well, so I kept it. :serpico:

Besides those two main things, I also do a lot of the coloring in a program called Paint Tool SAI. I think it handles the blur tool in a very appealing way (at least compared to Photoshop), so I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to try digital artwork. To give you an example of how it works, I used SAI to create the clouds in the Serpicopter picture.

Hope that helps! :casca:

I do all my comics digitally nowadays, just because it eliminates the extra step of scanning. Though I've got to admit, I have more control when I'm drawing with just a pencil. Maybe one of these days I'll go legit and use ink like you!

Same here.

I like how the left side is where Guts and crew are at in the story while the right is about Griffith's side. Also love how the ship, Irvine and flowers escape the usual boundaries of the outlined cover, and reminded how glorious yet ominous Falconia appears. Awesome stuff Grail (!) and congrats Rupert.

But I am working on it. At some point I would love to be able to draw Berserk fan art but the drawing are so detailed and I am crazy OCD about getting every line perfect that I defeat myself LOL!

I also really love the coloring. I only color with color pencil.  :farnese: I love the shadowing you put in the coloring. That can be very hard to do convincingly with just color pencil.

Great work as always, Grail. You really worked hard on this one and it shows. I'd love to make a print of this cover and have it framed. You da best!! :guts:

Yowza! Thank you everyone for the kind words, it gave me a real case of the warm fuzzies to read through them all! :slan:

I've been working hard on the art for the Patreon donors since November, and so far I've gotten a real kick out of working with Rupert and the other donors. It's a refreshing experience to work on another person's idea! I just wish that I could work faster, but judging by everyone's feedback, it clearly pays to take your time with these. :serpico:

I love it. Was this done with oil paint originally? Looks like there's some real texture to the lines.
Thanks, man. This was actually all done digitally, using mainly Photoshop, Paint Tool SAI, and a painting program I recently purchased called Clip Studio. The latter two are really useful in producing nice textures.

Got some chills looking at both the shooting star and Falconia shots. Really clever amalgamation of recent events.
I believe Rupert gets credit for that! He mapped the general layout of the composition, which saved me a lot of sketching! :ganishka:

This is such a great cover, Grail! Everything about this is awesome, and I love the textures and colors. It's nice seeing a collage cover reflecting the current status of the story. It just realized we haven't had one since about volume 25!

Thanks for sharing Rupert!

Amazing what a splash of colour can do to a picture. The strength in the distinction between her skin and "clothes" is something you can't pull off in a black and white medium. It's like i'm seeing the character for the first time again. Awesome job!

That Danan coloring is so gorgeous  :isidro:

Somehow since her transformation i always imagined her in white and light green color. But this coloring seems even more fitting, also considering the cherry blossom theme.
It's really awesome.  :ubik:

I'm usually not a big fan of Berserk panel colorings for some reason, but I think this looks absolutely wonderful and I come here to check it out pretty often.

I just wanted to give a big thanks to Grail for making this custom avatar! I love Sonia's character in Berserk and she did a great job on this piece, with Sonia day dreaming away.  :griffnotevil:

Thank you Tama for the kind words! It was a very fun piece to draw, it made me realize that I missed drawing Sonia from back during my oekaki days. Granted, I drew her in a much less flattering way (http://www.lithrael.com/ig/displayimage.php?album=9&pid=157#top_display_media), but it sure was fun. PS: Shoutout to Lith for archiving these old things!

And thank you to Skeleton, and all who commented on my last posting in this thread! I must be due for another coloration experiment, don't you think? :slan:

Sonia looks very cute! :ubik: I like the fluffy cotton candy clouds in the background, too. They add well to the "daydreamy" look.

I must be due for another coloration experiment, don't you think? :slan:
Yes, please! :guts:
