Let's get a drawfag thread going. Make a request and I'll see what I can muster up. Be as specific as you'd like, but keep in mind I'm slow as shit.
Other drawfags are welcome to join in anytime.

Sorry, been a while since I've had time to draw.

Here's what I got so far.

Still working on this one. Have the line art done but colouring's never been my strong suit.

Don't worry about whatever the request is. I don't mind drawing several Eila requests in a row if that's what anons want. I just like to draw witches.

Oh. To be honest, I thought it was by a different artist. Now I feel stupid. Your style is indeed still very similar, but I think your lineart has improved - much better use of varying thickness.

Your style was much better than average to begin with, so there isn't much room for improvement! But if you ever start experimenting with coloring or shading styles other than linear hatching, be sure to post here. I'd love to see that.

Wow, that's awesome!

I think the picture works better with the pencil/notepad - it adds a little action and leaves us wondering what it is that she's writing or drawing that's pleasing her.

Would you also please take her out of cat mode (no ears/tail) and give her a modest smile? The one thing that drives me bonkers about most of the Sanya fan art out there is how she often looks either worried or just unhappy.

I'm really looking forward to seeing the final version. Thank you so much for doing these for us!

I think i've said it before, but you're very good at dynamic posing and capturing a witch's personality.
>> No. 8624 ID: 3318094f
Thanks. Dynamic poses are one of the main things I like to aim for but all too often the girls end up in positions where spines simply have no business bending the way they do.
Although sometimes finding the right pose takes me days. I guess I need to do some more figure drawing.

And learn how to colour. Incidentally, if anyone knows of any good tutorials on the stuff, let me know. I'd like to properly finish up some of these requests one day soon.
>> No. 8625 ID: 4e663b18

Well, i'm sure the most of us are fine and dandy with just your lineart - your art is very clean and seems finished even without color. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't strive to improve yourself. Maybe try practicing with less complicated subjects, like inanimate objects and the like? I don't know much about that sort of thing. I never graduated MS paint pixel art.

Had a weird dream about this long time ago and I've imagined occasionally what it would look like, besides in the dream.
So I'd love to see Sanya wearing that peculiarly fashionable swastika emblem purple bikini.

>If I may inquire, how did you do this piece exactly? And no worries, I'm enjoying this thoroughly, you oughta make more so here!

Normally I just use mspaint but this time I did most of it in photoshop. The blinking eyes were done with jasc animation shop + mspaint, and the flash was animated with an ancient version Swishmax (the same version that I've been using since 2004, hah).

Originally I was going to hand make the backgrounds, but I just didn't have the time/skill so I slapped together some old backgrounds I had laying around from my sprite ripping days. The animated star bgs are just from google.

A colourfriend is something I should definitely look into. I do hope to eventually be able to colour things on my own regularly but I seem to find the act intimidating, mainly due to my own lack of practice.

That's my intention. I'm hoping that by the time the anime airs I'll be able to draw (and finish) some doujins.

It took me a short while to understand what you meant by boat, so no, I don't think on this board context wise calling her Prinz would get people confused.

It looks like another drawfriend has appeared. I hope OP doesn't mind me posting it here - it seemed like the right spot and I'm reluctant to make a new thread and knock an old one into oblivion.

This appeared on the SW subreddit earlier today.

The channel: https://www.twitch.tv/jatts_art/v/56143831

He/she has two videos up. I could have sworn I saw 5 or 6 this morning. Whatever. ^_^ Note that they are recordings of past shows and are rather long. I've watched the first few minutes of both and the streamer hasn't spoken: they just play Jpop and draw characters. Check it out.

I think it's pretty okay by that. Either way.
Ugh, really now? Though I wish Jatts would drop his edgy gore witch art, he can do okay otherwise and his art has improved somewhat from what I've seen. It's just tasteless but he probably gets kicks out of the gore trash. Think he mentioned somewhere that 'artist goes beyond his comfort zone' but I'm fairly sure he's in the middle of it.

I'd never heard of him and had no idea about the gore thing. I don't see any of that stuff in his twitter/pixiv feeds although I didn't go back too far. But now it's been mentioned here so people are warned before they look through his work. Better late than never. Or something. Oops.

Can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post. Christ.
The main reason for that is because I couldn't finish this request. I've been sitting on it for weeks but haven't made any progress. I've been busy with some other things too which I hope I can get around to showing some day.
Excuses aside, sorry for the unfinished work.

I don't think my heart could take a Super Saiyan Mio. She seems like the type who would train in a hyperbolic time chamber to not be hindered by her loss of magic. That was fantastic, though!

I feel as though Shirley isn't the type to instantaneously fluster at a confession. She seems like she wouldn't believe you're being serious, maybe brush it off as a joke, and go about her day. If you keep trying, however, she'd slowly come to realize how sincere your feelings are and she'd become furtive and meek as she tries to figure out how to respond.

Or maybe I'm just overthinking this.

Anyways, it was pretty tough to shove all that into one image, so I was hoping to do a 4koma kind of thing, but real life got in the way and fractured my motivation somewhat. Though I managed to salvage one of the panels and tidied it up a little.

Got a question about your recent style if you don't mind. How come you don't ink the pupils as dark you used to? I think you had it much better with them a while ago than recently unless this is your more sketchy style or just trying alternatives.

My mind was hoping for Makoto in her black hose flying but this is great nonetheless, makes for a good setup with Akane as you did.

Coming up on a year since this thread was made. Damn, time flies.

Hopefully this is seductive enough.

And to you, EMT, I'm sorry. I kind of had something but I only began to notice the major issues partway through doing the lineart and by then I just couldn't bring myself to go back and fix everything. And that's part of the reason why I have this to say:

Lately I've felt like my art hasn't been improving at all, and I don't just mean in the past year but for a few years now. I've been meaning to clear my schedule and devote myself to improving but I either get distracted or end up procrastinating and pushing my study days into the next week.
That's why, after I finish whatever requests are left, I'm going to take a hiatus. I'll still be here on Helma and whatever witch threads that pop up on /a/ (especially when Brave Witches gets going) but unless someone else takes up the mantle of resident drawfag here (no application necessary! Please join!) there will probably be a lot less deliveries in the coming months (not that there was many to begin with).
Requests can still be made--I find drawing the witches as strangely cathartic so I doubt I'll be able to keep myself away from them for too long--but my hope is that the more I focus on improving the sooner I can return, and with hopefully better artwork.
So as gloomy as all that pseudo-professional bullshit sounds, I'll still be here, I'll still be drawing, I just want to get better is all.

And then maybe I'll be able to make that Keiko daki I've always wanted.
>> No. 11477 ID: ca5aa80a
Thank you my dude. I can't wait to see the other one where I ask her the question. Have any ideas or you're going to keep it a surprise?
>> No. 11478 ID: ca5aa80a
There's nothing wrong with your line art, it's great!
>> No. 11479 ID: 56eb16d8
I'll keep it a surprise for the time being.
And it's not so much the line art that's the issue, it's the underlying sketch. A lot of mistakes that I make I don't notice until it's too late: screwed up proportions, misaligned eyes, poses in which spines bend in ways spines were not meant to bend, etc. Most of the time I catch these before publishing the work but it would be nice to never make those mistakes in the first place.
And really, it's just my art's general quality that I'm aiming to improve. I'm far from Humikane's or em's level, among many others.
>> No. 11480 ID: ca5aa80a
Ohhhh, I see what you mean.
>> No. 11481 ID: ca5aa80a
Can you atleast tell me if you think she'd do it though?

And I don't mean to sound like an ass but there's no need for three posts when one will suffice. Take time to think about what you want to say before posting.
Considering how slow Helma is I only ever check for new posts every couple of hours anyways.
>> No. 11484 ID: f8d0804a
Nice picture drawfriend!

And hey if you feel your art ain't up to snuff and you want to get better that's all fine and dandy man. I've loved every single one of the pics you've drawn so far but if you want to get on humi or em's level then by all means more power to you.

Don't worry about my request, drawfriend, I was kind of just thinking out loud when I posted it anyways. I said I wouldn't ask for anything else this year, remember? I appreciate the effort though!

I wish you luck in your efforts, but I hope you'll still come around to discuss the witches fairly often. I think there are a few drawfriends that have seemingly stopped showing up and I can't help but feel like we kind of annoyed them too much, me included, and that makes me feel terrible. The last thing any of us want to see is Helma & Co. bleeding users.

We're all mighty appreciative of what you do, even if we can get too 'eager' sometimes.

You are your own worst enemy as they say. No one but you are the one to feel your art needs improving when everyone is content enough with it.
It's pretty much autism what you're describing there and as someone with two devout artfags as friends and myself as a former one I can relate to you. But you do what you feel is best.
Saying about levels is a bit silly when you're to form your own style that will become your very own and something you feel content with. Em doesn't strike as someone who will change drastically his style at this point, is he at Fumi's level? No and yes, he has distinct style to his that is very nice and Fumi has unique to his that fits him the best. Both are great and different and will be. Yours is great.
That's just some of my thoughts.

Happy belated birthday mate, that's a cute Yoshika.
I'm still here, not so much a drawfag recently but still very much a resident of little ol' Helma. Hard to believe it's been over two friggin' years since I last delivered in this thread.
Unfortunately I haven't drawn for a long while. Had life come up and bite me in the ass and I've been in a funk the past year. Slowly getting out of it though and I should be back soon once I get my shit together.
Can't say I made good on my promise to get better though, so don't expect much of an improvement.

Thanks mang.
Am I glad to hear you're still around and kicking though even if not drawing, and yeah it's like couple of years have flown by despite still thinking it was like yesterday when you last posted.
As much I'm happy to hear someone's getting back on rails even if slowly, to me each good step feels like negated by a bigger one always lately.
Nah, like plenty of times said in the past your style was fine as it were even if you like to be self-critical about it which is fine for improving over time.
The only thing I'm expecting is a drawing of any kind from you at some point.

You're already bombarded, but that's for a good reason. I'll just ask seeing summer's coming and all something with Miyafuji in her frilly bikini look.
And for reference there was this fanart made by Couch eons ago >>11206 where Lynne got a leg cramp. I like the idea of somewhat dynamic compositions always so maybe Miyafuji trying to split a watermelon with blindfold or doing warm-up stretching.

I would love a Minna dressed in a baby doll, sitting on a simple bed, implying it belongs to an enlisted soldier.
She could be saying something along the lines of "I've been waiting~".

Also, if you find the time, why not make it a a two frame comic strip with both of them being in her office, the soldier as her scribe and Minna saying she'll go to bed, as he is still finishing work on some papers.

Please, take all the time you need for this! I appreciate how much effort and time you put in for us.

The only thing I can think of with her face is that its a little too small compared to the rest of her, like how her hair seems to go too far off to the side, and it looks not tall enough to fit with her hair and body (like her cheek is really long and flat), but maybe that’s just me

AAaaaaaaa.. Truly this is Miyafuji's best swimsuit besides her default one and it suits her lovely figure on point and proper. The frills with the color layout and swimsuit design is so good and just in time for the last few weeks of summer.
I love it so much, you did amazing! I think this is your first colored delivery aside Nipa image too, your coloring is on point as well with this one at least.
Now hopefully you don't mind me being nitpicky if I'd were to, in which the stretch is a tad bit lazy one coming from her and the dynamic pose is lacking as such, although I guess that's on me by not saying it with the WIP but I didn't want to really look at it since I prefer seeing finalized art myself. Sorry about that.
As for missing something, I suppose if you feel like it, Lucchini could have her own unique bikini she got with Miyafuji that same year during the event instead of her default one.

That's nice kid, and that suddenly makes it okay... because? lol...

I'll end my remarks by saying that art is art. Shouldn't matter what people make as long as the artist is happy, and if other people enjoy seeing it (and yes, people enjoy types art that others may not like). But anyone who enjoys shitting on what other people enjoy is just an example of an unlikable person! :) But hey don't get mad at me, I'm merely just calling it out that's all! I would have said this 3 years ago too if I had seen it, all the same to me.

And now back to enjoying art! ^__^

This is someone who once threatened to kill himself over the usual stupid comments in an /a/ witches thread. Eagle's posts are best treated like something that fell out of the back of a garbage truck.

I hope you'll feel inspired to do some more PG-rated Sanya work in the future.

I'm not some kid. And I'm not the guy that posted that. I'm the admin.

You're right to be mad about that post and you're free to defend yourself, I'm just sick of this place being talked shit about.

>But anyone who enjoys shitting on what other people enjoy is just an example of an unlikable person!

>Reminds me why this place is trash, lel

If you think Helma is so shit, why don't you tell me how to improve it. What can I even do? Anyone's free to post whatever they want here, and I've only banned 2 people in 8 years. If you don't like it, make it a better place. I'm being serious here.

This place isn't some secret club circle jerk. Hell, I don't even post here. Post what you want here. Bring your friends, I don't care. I've tried my best to keep this place drama free, I don't advertise the site on 4chan (or anywhere else), I don't ban people on a whim, I don't have a bunch of friends trashing the place. After 8 years it's still ready and waiting. Not as a replacement for existing boards and discords, but just as another place to enjoy the subject.

But I don't want to turn this into some retarded thread derailing drama, so I'll leave it at that. Unless you want to discuss some sort of solution in private. And I apologize if this post seems a bit over the top, but I've been handling a lot of stupid irl shit lately, and my patience is razor thin right now.
>> No. 14782 ID: b9a34296
I admit I wouldn't know how to discuss this in private since I don't use these types of boards often, but maybe that would be a better choice if we did so since I do care very much about Witches fandom, including here...

I was upset about stumbling across this when I was simply looking at great art (and this thread really has great stuff), but in retrospect I could have chosen better words regardless... or tried my best to ignore it (which is hard with anger issues lol). All that being said I apologize for derailing things.

Regarding my violent content, just to clear things up... I do love Witches very very dearly, I really care about them. Yes it is also fetish stuff... that part is true, but it is not out of hate which I'd like to specify. I love creating beautiful/cute artwork too, its just that my violent/sexual content got more views lmfao... kinda sad actually.

As for more Sanya pics, I'd love to! But I actually haven't drawn in a very long time.. I think about 2 years now? Part of it is due to depression, but the other reason is because I've spent like the last year and a half creating my own MMD model from scratch. I had seen someone else post an MMD edit earlier in this thread so I assume its okay if I posted my content too? I may as well share something to make up for my earlier posts, haha...

Related image is a recent pic I made using my own model, and as for downloading it you can get it from here (it requires a Nico account, sorry): https://3d.nicovideo.jp/works/td60809

I plan to create more MMD Witches too, simply because no one else really bothered to make highly detailed Witches models before... :< One day I had decided to take it upon myself to do so, and I guess its worked out so far!

Really nice ninnin Sadako. Kinda funny with the timing and how recently all sorts of ninjas have been on a huge uprise in various things.
A Wakizashi in her open hand would've been a nice touch, or few shurikens in-between the fingers but not really a required one. Almost feel like asking for a certain type of ninja myself but I'll refrain now.

Is it really talking shit behind your back seeing this is a public place though, just like twitter or any other place and critiquing artist's creations.
And I don't see myself exactly shitting on you from back then either in it. Albeit it's really weird to bring up such old stuff.
Simply stating I don't like gore involved with witches and if that's what you like, then free will and all, really even if it's a shame to me what with your core art having a decent foundation which is a praise mind you back then and now.
I did call gore trash, which it is to me, not you nor your likes directly. You do you man like anyone else when it comes to art.
And the MMD model of Mio is pretty good.

I've seen your model before and I think it looks really nice. I tried "kit-bashing" my own higher quality Sakamoto a couple years ago, but yours looks a heck of a lot better!
>> No. 14788 ID: 2df0fb83
I understood how you might feel since Ive also been going through very rough times myself for many reasons... one reason actually has to do with this model, I love what Ive done but it also kinda fucked me up in a way due to pushing myself too far (long story). Anyway, if I think of something more to say, maybe I'll contact you!

Tbh thats a pretty good attempt for what it is! Sadly when using parts from other models, it can be very challenging to get it to look just right... it was one of the reasons I decided from the start to do everything by myself, and so I didnt have to owe other authors credit lol! It was a huge pain and I had to learn everything as I went, it was the first time ive ever done this too... but it was definitely worth it, especially to see all the kind words from people who comment on it! Thank you! :)

Hey, I hope you're still here drawfriend. I was wondering about what you did to get so good with drawing and how long it took you. I would like to get better with drawing but my stuff looks like trash right now.
And as others have said, you should open up a Pixiv or Twitter.
>> No. 14961 ID: 638abcae
I'm still here. Been drawing "seriously" for about 10 years now, shamed as I am to admit it. Put in a modicum of effort and motivation and anyone could reach my level in a fraction of the time, so don't let that discourage you. Hell, I honestly think I plateaued a few years ago and haven't bothered to improve since.
I'm always excited to help new artists get their feet on the ground so I'll write up a longer post in a day or two when I find the time. I'm self-taught, but I've studied a few books to learn the basics. I'll name-drop a bunch later.
How long have you been drawing for? Don't worry about your drawings looking like shit right off the bat, it gets said a lot but everyone starts off the same. I should see if I can find some of my early drawings to show how I started.
I'll answer any questions you have, and if there's anything in specific you want to know more about just ask.

And if you take requests, I'd like Lynette in a sundress. Thank you.

I think you're vastly underrating your skills. You're probably one of the most talented drawfags out there.

Yeah, I would like that. It would be good to know everything you have done to get to where you are.
>How long have you been drawing for?
Not very long, just a few stuff here and there since last Winter.
>And if you take requests, I'd like Lynette in a sundress.
Yeah sure, I can try though it might end up terrible. It will be on pencil and paper though (I'm assuming that you have been using a tablet). Also, my delivery speed might be slow because I have some applications due soon and university is about to get hectic.
>> No. 14964 ID: 638abcae
Pencil and paper is what practically everybody, including myself, starts off with, so don't worry on that front. Don't bother with a tablet until you're good and invested in the hobby as drawing digitally has its own, separate learning curve.
Loomis gets mentioned a lot for beginners but he's truly a great starting point. "Figure Drawing for All It's Worth" starts off with learning and memorizing the proper proportions and the book really helps familiarize yourself with the basics. "Drawing the Head and Hands," also by Loomis, is great as well, and considering how faces are a huge focal point in anime/manga it's pretty invaluable.
One book that I can't recommend enough is "Figure Drawing Design and Invention" by Michael Hampton, as it brilliantly shows how to build the human body using shapes and blocks. Read in conjunction with Loomis and it makes a sturdy foundation.
Also check out:
Bert Dodson - Keys to Drawing
Burne Hogarth - Drawing Dynamic Hands
Burne Hogarth - Dynamic Figure Drawing
George B Bridgman - Bridgman's Complete Guide To Drawing From Life
Glenn Vilppu - The Vilppu Drawing Manual
I could go into detail about them but there's no need as the all serve the same purpose; they're all great for studying the fundamentals to varying degrees and building up your artistic strength.
>> No. 14965 ID: 638abcae
Also, a few more notes:

1. A lot of people say in order to draw anime you need to know how to draw people realistically first. While drawing from real life and books will certainly improve your skills far quicker than drawing nonstop anime, don't go thinking that you can't draw anime until you're good. Draw what you "need" to draw, but don't forego drawing what you "want" to draw. A few years back I felt I should be focusing on the fundamentals and set aside anime entirely. I found I lacked both the motivation and determination to work on my fundamentals and wound up wasting several months not doing any drawing at all. If you don't draw, you can't improve.

3. Tracing isn't evil, it's a great way to understand how other artists have built their characters. Obviously, don't try and pass the work off as your own, it's purely for studies.

3. Improving isn't just about drawing every day. It's about noticing your mistakes, understanding what's wrong with your work and then striving to correct it. You'll find times where you draw something you think looks great, and then the next day or even a few hours later you'll look at it with fresh eyes and think it looks ghastly. Use this moment to analyze why it looks like shit and aim to do better.

4. Don't burn yourself out. At the end of the day, drawing is meant to be fun. If you're doodling aimlessly or can't get a certain aspect of your drawing to look right, take a breather. Read a book, go for a walk, watch a show or a movie. Come back to it later with a clean slate of mind.

That's all I can think of for now. Keep at it and have fun is all I can really say. If you ever end up drawing some of the witches, make sure to post it here as I'd love to see your progress. Other than that, I'll always be here for help or critique.
Now, I myself haven't been getting any of my recent work to look right, so if anyone wants to hit me up with some new requests I'd love to try them out to break free of this rut.

Just going to post this. In addition to looking over the fundamentals, I've also been practicing drawing anime to mix things up a little. In particular, I've been copying your style (imitation is the sincerest form of flattery) and I definitely feel like I understand how to draw eyes and hair better. Here's an example of one of my little studies. I think what I drew ended up being Helma with Rudel's bandaid. I think I'll be sticking with this style of eyes, for now, I know it's a lot better than my previous blank eyes.

Anyways, thanks again for your help drawfriend, I still have a long way to go but I'll make sure to keep on practicing.

Hopefully everyone's doing well and staying safe from the virus. Times may seem rough but just remember we have more witch anime goodness in the future to look forward to.
With the extra free time I have I'm considering starting a project to keep me busy. I've attempted making doujinshi before, maybe I'll take another crack at it. We'll see.
I'm still taking requests though, so feel free to drop some on me. If the other artists are still here, I have some requests of my own:

- Krupinski reaching out to pinch an unsuspecting witch's bum (perhaps Rossman's?)

Hey drawfriend, Helma will be shutting down soon and would like to kindly request if you could perhaps draw Helma giving a farewell/goodbye to the website and the Admin and post it in the sticky. It would probably have to be done by at least the 10th so the Admin could see it. I'll do a variation of this as well, though I wish I could have been better before this happened.

Anyways, I'll continue with your request and I'll try my best to post it here before the closure. If that doesn't work, I'll just post it in /c/. If you ever need me for anything, my email is [email protected]; I would gladly continue drawing your requests to the best of my abilities. Of course, I'll also always be in /c/ if you need me for whatever reason.

Anyways, thanks for being Helma's resident drawfriend. I still really appreciate you fulfilling my earlier request this year and I'm sure the other anons appreciate your dozens of deliveries in the past. Also, thanks again for giving me your advice, I made sure to save that and every single delivery you made so I can continue studying your work.

Definitely going to draw a farewell picture for Helma. I'll try and pop up more in /c/, and of course I'll be in /a/ for the witch threads when the various anime start rolling out. Keep drawing, anon.

I hope you're not far into my farewell request because it will not be needed anymore seeing as this site will continue on.

I finished mine though and I was planning on doing a redraw but, of course, that won't be needed anymore. Here's what my farewell picture would have looked like if anyone was curious.

Anyways, I'll work on your request ASAP.
