WIP Rough Study - Loish or Lois Van Baarle by MoonMaroon  I love your artwork!!! You're my favorite artist. I look at it all the time for inspiration! I just started using my wacom bamboo tablet that I bought in college again and decided to try studying one of your busts using the tutorial you provided on Pencil Kings. I know It's really rough and unfinished but I still want to share it with you. Right now I'm working on developing my painting and drawing skills with digital media, character development and coming up with my own art style. I hope I'll be as good as you someday!!!

How do you get the noise/blur effect around your drawings?
loish Featured By Owner May 26, 2015
it's a combination of gaussian blur, chromatic abberation (which you can achive with the 'lens correction' filter), and noise :) i just duplicate the layer with the art on it and add those effects, then erase it again in the areas that i want sharp.

Wow, I agree these do look alot like those characters!
loish Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2015
not sure who you're referring to! but they are drawn from imagination and not based on existing people/characters.

do you have any tips for your style? what artist influenced you and like how long did it take you to come up with your own wonderful style? I've been going at it with faces for a while and it's hard for me to really go out of what is realistic :(
loish Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2014
you can find lots of info on that here - :] and this deviation shows pretty well what my major influences are:… (planning on making a new, more detailed one soon though). for me, referencing disney and comic artists like auroreblackcat really helped develop my style!

larilah Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2014

The blond one on the left is cute but the brunette honestly looks distorted. Her head is titled yet her cheekbones align horizontally, as if her face was melting. Her right eye, which is closer to us and should be a bit bigger, is actually smaller than her left. Her titled forehead makes her look like a neanderthal as well as the lack of volume at the back of her head.

It's cartoon style, it isn't SUPPOSED to be realistic or perfect/realistis proportions. stfu.
nerptune Featured By Owner May 6, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
IzaakShoelaces Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Dude it's not realism, it's a caricature. It's part of the style. It's not supposed to have absolutely perfect proportions. I actually like the one on the left better.
larilah Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2014
Always the realism excuse. Cheekbones not aligned is not a style. An almost horizontal forehead is most likely not style. A lack of cranium is not style. It's not about proportions (you should check the definition of "proportion"), it's about structure. You can draw a caricature and not make a side of the character's face look as if it's melting. You are not doing loish any favors by completely overlooking the flaws in her art.
