Floccinaucinihilipilification

Alies - 6-14-2009 at 09:51 AM

Sorry to hurt your brain with the difficult title XD
But I mostly use this title for my drawingtopics around the boards I visit. And I decided to open one here too.

(for the want-to-knows: floccinaucinihilipilification means: The act or instance of judging something to be worthless or trivial ;) )

Matthew Bellamy

If you wish to see more of my drawings, I would love to upload more to this topic.

*likes Matthew Bellamy version 2 very much.
As for the subject title: It would be far easier to insert the entire word definition into a conversation than to actually try and say it. I always wonder why words like that were even invented, like when my dad told me there's a word for jumping out of a window (or something like that).

The last drawing is so cute. :3 Are these referenced? I'm thinking that they probably are, but I could be wrong. Also, have you ever thought about inking? It's hard to judge from just two pictures, but these look really clean. (Unless your scanner ate the shading or something. My own scanner is a prolific shading-eater. :< ) Drawing over the darkest bits in ink could make them really pop.

I hope this thread hasn't been forgotten and you do post more. :D

Thanks, I'll try out the idea :D
BTW I don't quite understand what you mean with Referenced and clean pictures.
The scanner does make my drawings a little lighter. When I use colours it's a pain in the ass because you can't really recognise the colours at all. But happily I'm not really a colour user ;)

I'll upload some more:

Heath Ledger: (here you see that it way lighter than the original drawing.)

Edit: nevermind the lighter when scanned statement; I just discovered that this isn't when scanned, but when printed after scanning ;)

I'm sorry for the weird language, I didn't realise. :embarrassed: Referenced just means that you took a picture from elsewhere and drew it. Most artists do it, but the really good ones are able to draw realism from memory or imagination. And by clean pictures I meant that the lines weren't all smudgy, but... clean. (I really suck at explaining stuff. *facedesk*) Like it would be easy to ink over the lines and make it into lineart. (Lineart, in case you didn't know, is the kind of thing you see in comics and stuff, except without tones or colour. Good lineart varies its line weight smoothly... and stuff. I don't think I can explain that one at all.)

You're really good at keeping the facial features all alligned, by the way. :D *sneaks off to make art thread*

I love this word! I seriously lit up when I read it. My teacher in fifth grade introduced it to us and I have used it ever since.

This seemed an appropriate place to say...I just used the word "pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis" in my JulNo. In a legitimate conversation. And I can pronounce it. *grin*
