    2) don't expect too much... if you are just starting and expect a master-piece being born by your hands on your first try, you'll feel quite sad with the results... don't worry about posting it here though... we're very kind XD

    3) start with small stuff... avoid clothes and hands, they're tough to draw... I'd start with faces... they are easy to draw, easy to find references for, more important than hands or clothes and they are small enough for you to draw many of them in a short period of time...

    4) don't draw little girls getting hurt... or I'll eat your soul...

    5) do VERY rough sketches... they'll naturally look kinda bad so you won't feel bad for them looking bad, and at the same time, they'll help you feeling the lines and the pencil/pen/stylus/whatever you're using... they'll help you a lot at making your hand's cordination better (which is 40% of drawing... the rest is talent, experience and imagination)...
    not the person that asked but still that helps

    Here's another silhouette. I don't want to post the significantly less cool-looking full version till I'm all the way done.

    Wow you are an amazing colorer! If you wanna color my pictures on page 1 i would be honored!

    Blizzard really did a number on the Battered Hilt and you have higher chance of being eaten by a shark inside your own home then finding one drop and winning it.

    Thanks, I'm just starting to learn how to use the GIMP to color... so far that's just the shading. It looks way cooler that way than with the lines+colors layers activated! I don't know if I'm actually any good at it yet.

    I much prefer crayons and felt tip pens myself. And sponges with paint to make stars =D

    But nah, I never try colouring things. I can imagine spending ages on a sketch, whether it is one that looks sketchy, or one that is shaded and all as perfect as I can get it, then colouring a little bit wrong and having to start again.
    Eurgh >_>
    Yes I know Renagade is spelt wrong, I have use this name since I was about 5 and stuck with it ^_^

    So earlier I was thinking it'd be cool to do a wow/Napoleonic warfare crossover piece, but then I realized that you could only do that with Humans and Blood Elves, cause everyone else would just be like "wtf is this?"

    Anyway, thats what happens when you substitute your wow addiction with Age of Empires.

    Wut. Sy thinks I am not active enough in this thread? Well ... yeah, possibly. But I don't have the time anymore to browse through hundreds of galleries on the interwebs during work time as I had back then

    female dwarves are supposed to have beards. The larger the beard, the more feminine they are. Day of the Dragon said so.

    Oh well Sy, but there are just no Draenei Pictures left ... I guess. Well, probably there are, but it would consume way too much time for me to haunt them down through the interwebs, you know why. They will remain hidden for our eyes for some reason.

    You'll be happy either way with these artworks posted here, wont you?

    i'm glad, it doesn't happen to often that anything looks cuter to me than a draenei girl, especially not when said object is dead xD

    since i was bored and there seems to be a pretty big need for draenei avatars, i made some from the artworks posted in this thread.
    so if anyone is interested:


    guess i'll try to update mine again, too.
