New poster of artwork. Treat me as you will. :D
I'm an absolutely brand new poster here in these forums, even though I've been around, downloading stuff for a while now. I've only just recently decided to peek into the forums. :D
Well, I'll introduce myself. I go by a few names, Tomaki in most places. I've been around various art forums/sites, and oekaki boards, but lately (which is to say... the last couple years...) it's gotten a bit dull. The quality of critiques and enthusiasm has really fallen which has caused a stagnant air to engulf my motivation. T_T Needless to say, I decided to branch out and get myself a little more exposure, and hopefully gain some new perspectives and advice, as well as gain some interesting people to talk to. :3
And here I shall post a few pieces of my art, starting with the oldest in my "recent pile" and ending with the newest.
(.... I'll replace the ugly deadlinks with pictures and real links as soon as I break the 10 post limit. *cries*)
Media: Copic multiliners and colored pencils
His hand bugs me. Otherwise I enjoy it. Likely cause it's Onishi, xD cause he amuses me. This is one of the very few real media pictures I've got (besides pencil sketches). I've never really been comfortable with pen and colored pencil. :< I drew it when my Tablet was all but broken down and during my trip to A-kon. XD
Media: Wacom Intuos2, Painter 7.
Ara, another character of mine. This wont be a surprise after a while, I'm a character artist. xD The only thing that bothers me anymore about this picture is that there's no background. Still. I've gotten over everything else.
Media: Wacom Intuos3, Photoshop 7.0.
One of my few pieces that isn't supposed to have a background due to future plans of it's use. ._. Which isn't impressive in the least. The character is Daron, who belongs to mah buddy Jackie. :D
Media: Wacom Intuos3, Oekaki.
This is my first serious oekaki drawing in years. xD; For serious. This is Tohma, but dont let the provocative look fool you. My constant yet well managed urge to draw sexy looks gave way to this result. Technically he's supposed to be about as provocative as a rock.
Media used: Intuos2 tablet, Deleter comicworks (lineart), Painter 7 (colors), Photoshop7 (waves in the background). ... or at least I think that's how it worked out. xD
It's Onishi again. This time with his horns and markings/tattoos. Deleter is a wonderful program for line art since it IS made for manga making. The pen tool moves very smoothly and it's great at 600 dpi.

(Also, I reuploaded the full version of this one cause I noticed it was having a problem totally downloading when I tried to open the link. :<)
Media: Intuos3 and Photoshop 7
I rarely draw girls.. but it's a lot of fun. XD It's so incredibly different anatomically from all the guy's I draw. That's why I like it so much I think. XD
Also I think I draw better when I challenge myself... :< I think this came out better than the last few pictures I've done.

Anyway, in the future I hope to bring you backgrounds. No matter how crappy they may be in the beginning, I really need to stop ignoring them. T_T; Otherwise my days as an amature mangaka are doomed, no? XD Well I'll take all the advice I can get.
Also I'll post up a few of my more dynamic pictures sometime, I'm sure just looking at random characters just standing/sitting there will get boring after a while. xD I'll make time to knock one out.
Oh, and if anyone wanted to take a look at my deviantart site it's at http://www.deviantart.com/tomaki.
Thanks to you in advance for taking the time to look. <3 I appreciate it. In the mean time, any ideas or inspirations are more than welcome as well.
(if there's any trouble with the links I'll try to fix it asap. :x)
