I'm not great at art, but I do enjoy it

I’m no professional when it comes to art, but hey, I enjoy drawing every so often. So I decided to at least have a go at drawing Deande, my favourite Battleborn.

I know it’s not much and it’s very simplistic, but as I said, I’m no great artist. I just draw because I like it, even though I can’t shade and I’m no good at drawing those realistic details that others can either. That’s also why I stick to easier, cartoon-ey styled pictures. :sweat_smile:

Anyways, I was happy with the way this drawing turned out, so I decided to share it. Hope you like it.

EDIT: Made some adjustments to the image based on feedback. Also added a new background because the Jennerit seem to like their angular geometry. =P

Very nice. I’m always happy whenever someone posts fan art.

Thank you @blainebrossart1 and @HandsomeCam. I appreciate it. :blush:

Even professionals start out as amateurs.

I like it. Those other techniques you mentioned come with knowledge and practice, so there’s no need to apologize for not knowing how to do them.

:dukeaffirmative:

I do have some feedback though:

  1. Her face and hair have a good bit of detail and I like that, but her outfit seems a bit flat. Maybe a few more details would help it stand out better. The face should be the focus point, but the outfit just disappeared for me.
  2. She looks like she only has 3 fingers. Widening the hand a touch should give you enough space to hint at or draw the “missing” finger.

As I said above, her face, hair, and hair accessories look very good and you should be proud of your accomplishments. Please share any more you decide to draw in the future. :dukeaffirmative:

Hey, I really like the Deande!
I like the cartoon like style, and the colors.

Keep it up!

Also, you shouldn’t worry if its too simplistic. As long you enjoy making it, it doesn’t matter!

That’s amazing. (Much better than I could ever do haha). My only possible criticism would be the upper arms look a lil weird and she seems to be missing a finger. Everything else though… the makeup is on point, the hair is gorgeous, and the accessory is beautiful. Oh, wait. Her head appears to… spike up? Near where her hair begins

this picture is nemo approved! since I would be doing Deande an injustice with my drawing I tend to stick to writing, so fan art of the best battleborn is always a nice treat.

this is no problem. there is elegance in simplicity just as in complexity. Why do think I rock the infitrator skin? :wink:

Added some shading to help it stand out a little bit more. Hopefully this makes her dress seem a little less bland.

Attempted to edit the hand a little by making it wider and the fingers longer. Whether it properly hints at a fourth finger or not though I’m still unsure about. :confused:

If it still needs a changin’, let me know and I’ll try again 'till I get it right.

Will do! :smile_cat:

Haha thanks. Looks great! Am I misremembering or is the background new? Nope I’m misremembering and simply never took note of how nice it looks

Yup, changed the background just to match with the Jennerit theme more.

Ultimately it’s your work, so if you’re happy with it, that’s all that matters. One rule of thumb is to remember that more detail is usually better. I like what you did with her outfit because it adds depth and we can see that she has curves now. :dukeego: I think maybe adding some shading above her jawline to define it might be good as well. Here’s an in-game shot to show what I’m talking about:
