Edit: Some of the anatomy is wonky (story of my life) but I think I'll let Photoshop take care of that. Ok, now to start figuring out that tablet. To all you tablet users. How do you get your lines to look so sketchy? I gave it whirl and they look all thick and gross.
So, in photoshop, what I do is goto brush settings (that icon right under the word "image" up top, if you have trouble finding it).  You then go into Shape Dynamics and set the Size Jitter [control] to Pen Pressure.  I also turn on Smoothing.  Of course, some brushes will give a better look in regards to what you're looking for, however, I pretty much use the default round brush for everything (sometimes switching between hard and soft).  Lastly, you can take a look into using other programs that already have pencil-like preset brushes, and/or just give a better sketchy look than photoshop, such as:

Paint Tool Sai (debatable, but I rather sketch in this program and paint in photoshop)

Autodesk Sketchbook [whatever edition]

Those are the only two other program, I've ever used, though there is still Manga Studio, etc.

It ain't perfect.

But it's a lot better than it would have been 10 weeks ago. And who needs fingers when you've got a mushroom?

@Chaos Avian the picture is 9001x better because of Ralph's face. XD

Thank you so much for this. I'll try that out!

I've got my rough done!

Out on the town, Clarence does not know how to tie a tie. So Hawk takes it upon himself to help Clarence, an old fatherly instinct left from the days when he was a parent. Both of these characters come from my story Tears of the Sky.

Clarence left and Hawk right

Heres my final! I colored it with colored pencil.

For reference on what these two guys usually wear

Hawk



Clarence

@Wallace keep at it, improvement comes with time and practice. I like the hair on the character, she is from RTP correct? I like the school girl outfit she is wearing

@Chaos nice... I laughed at that one! You did a great job on the Ulrikas muscles, thats her name right?

@Pladinthug your drawing actually made me think of the formal theme. :p

As you mentioned it's a character from a game we are making, this is my main character from the game I'm starting.  He is a robot.  And now he is in a suit.

Realistic pencil sketch I did of a girl this week. I would like to use her general features and create her into a character for my game.

Here are some photos of the work in progress. Hope you all enjoy them!

Note: not sure why some of them are upside down.

Wanted to try out a new style, so I thought might as well do something for WAC.

Ahh I'm done ;w;

Here's my final piece. I drew the RMVX Fairy in a new blue dress with flowers~

It's a quickie so I painted directly on the sketch and it's super messy up close. Still, I got the chance to just do some stress-release painting and to try new things~ ( ´ ▽ ` )

The shoes were an extremely nice touch.  Well done. Love how you did the wings too.

Litzana:
I like that jester guys sweater.
Nice cobra.
I like that guys horns and tail.


daheji:
That is kinda hot I think.
Lovely dress and nice rain effect.

Chef Boy RD:
Ooh, nice bar scene. Nice detail on the hair.

Ms Littlefish:
I like your lines in this picture. It has an interesting style.

Chaos Avian:
I have no idea who these people are, but I like strong women.

Wallacethepig:
Cute girl. Good attempt at the french curls. The outfit seems a bit like english school girl.


CorneredCosmos:
I like the scene here. (I hate ties myself, agh.)


Ninja Art:
The girl is pretty, but her smile and eyes seem unsettling to me. Good pencil work though.


hiromu656:
Ooh, nice boxing scene. I can recognize these characters easily. Good use of lines for the motion.
(Is he swinging the fist from the right or the left? Someone isn't using their guard well)


EvilEagles:
Those are quite the dapper gentlemen.
Nice pixels.

Accha:
Oh my, that is just the cutest dress I`ve ever seen. Lovely picture I say.

Ehe, thanks palladinthug and Julien!

Ahh I really like the situation in hiromu's work. The green-haired guy (I never remembered his default name lulz) had that face armor thing going on, and it translates really well into the modern setting you drew him in!

Lazy background with poor perspective? Check. Anatomically incorrect plant life despite having a degree in horticulture? Check. Seemingly amputated limb? Check. Even while trying out a completely new art style, this is definitely a picture I drew given the above criteria.

https://soundcloud.com/maireadgamemusic/pop-version-edge-of-a-cliff (Pop remix of her theme)



Meet Ameríel (Amí for short)! My zeal brimming, candid, and easily excited curly-haired protagonist. 

Now, it’s hard to put her in a modern outfit because what she normally wears is not so fantastical. She wears a school uniform so I figured; she’s a college girl, I was a college girl. Let’s put her in the quint essential college -girl-just-rolled-out-of -bed-OK get up!

Yellow Wellies, leggings, a hooded zip up, and a skirt for modesty of course (which is why she’s out in a sport’s bra, duh). Messy side bun, grabbing a coffee, and striking a pose for a new selfie. While a modern girl can love classical music, we had to change her harp and flute theme to a thumping dance track to keep her moving.

This is a way old ratchet picture I tried before I had any clue what I was doing (dat franken face), but here is what she normally looks like for reference

 


And this is her normal orchestral theme (for reference) https://soundcloud.com/maireadgamemusic/amer-els-theme-edge-of-a-cliff

So, ah...everything about this submission was last minute. The decision to participate this week, the shift from simple little doodle to full blown CG...everything, lol. This is also my first attempt at any 'real' background, so please excuse any glaring flaws or errors. I hope to improve from here! Rick was the chosen subject for this project. I intended to draw a few others, but I'm not sure I can do this level of art again in time. ^_^;;

The wire fence was obtained through the handy-dandy Google search~ Everything else is hand drawn.

This is my first and final submission~



And now...off to bed I go! *fluffs pillow*
