    and heres something ive sacrificed my eyes for the past nights

    too bad i can't go to school now because of how late it is :|
    The plate armor has a nice texture but also looks sorta... die-cast. There needs to be more reflection from the ground and sky in certain parts to make it seem more natural. Also it looks like you've used straight black for the shadows which makes it seem charred.
    Here's a ref

    Color of the sky bounces off armor facing up, dirt, grass etc bounces off armor facing down

    discussing art in an art thread boy are we silly.
    The way you guys beat around the bush is in such stark contrast to the cut throat way my teacher and peers do things

    I find it funny

    I kinda wish that the art teacher that I had used the cut throat approach.
    She was much too nice. Sometimes you just have to give some one a swift kick in the rear to help them improve.
    Maybe I'll have more "luck" in college.

    Well, I have very cut throat prof for a digital sculpturing class I took for a semester.
    Being the first and only 'real' art class I have taken so far,
    I honestly learnt more from him than anything.
    He can go on for hours on how I can improve my work, which I think is golden.
    I've taken some summer classes, but there was no feedback at all, just pass or fail.

    the anatomy is wrong and he should study more anatomy in near future.

    Edited:

    what is there to argue.
    The problem is that you're not really saying anything that could be useful to me. I still thank you for pointing out my mistake but just going with only a "hurr durr go back to study anatomy" comment isn't helpful to me at all.

    Also yeah, I try to draw differents kind of shapes for my characters, though that doesn't mean I should draw them with innacurate anatomy

    If so, then grats, you have made the funniest cigarette package symbol I have ever seen.
    I'm gonna try hard not to imagine that crocodile doodle when I'm working with that drawing

    Gonna be a rough time


    I actually been using that word in regular speech since I was like 15
    Don't worry, it's never too late to learn how to use it correctly!

    The dof on the edges and the good anatomy makes me think you did a paint-over of a photograph.



    Hmmm.
    Why must people keep doing this shit in this thread

    They ALWAYS get caught out

    it's so cringeworthy

    All the cool kids are doing poetry
    We do like Poetry here right?

    The Endless flicker one thousand Lights
    The Flames sway in the winds of life
    Deaths endless gaze piercing the night
    One more out, One less flame in the fight

    It burns aways its hours
    It dances away the years
    it never runs
    It never stops
    It burns right through
    The frightful night

    The only destiny of its world
    the only inevitability of its tiny life
    is the final day, the final hour
    when the wind will finally win
    the flame will flicker its final light

    It burns aways its hours
    It dances away the years
    it never runs
    It never stops
    It burns right through
    The frightful night

    The wick grows short
    the flame burns dim
    the final hour
    is finally here
    The flame dies out
    One less light in the night

    the flame is gone now
    the smoke has cleared
    The flame is now but dust in the wind
    No one remembers, No one cares

    It burns aways its hours
    It dances away the years
    The flame is gone now
    Nine hundred ninty nine candles in the night
    one less candle in the fight
    I think this is the first time this thread has seen good poetry

    I'm not sure I really like RA much these days, its strayed away from humour and into vague seriousness but I don't feel it has much substance to it. Its pretty, but there isn't much else to it than that.

    For a second I thought the red deer thing was wearing hipster glasses in the second to last panel.

    I don't follow the comic so I have no idea what is going on, but the art in your guest comics are really good, well done.

    Just a sorda test run to get the hang of animation, had a look at a few spritesheets and such to get an idea as to how it all works. Only four frames.


    Proportions and movement is probably way off, but this is my first time doing anything of the sort.
    (The movement of the hair/fire is horrid, but I want to add more frames to the base before I worry about making that look nice)

    I'm gonna say lean the character forward into the run a bit more, emphasize the movement. Right now the pose suggests power walking or half-jogging to get to a bus stop on time

    It looks really unnatural. I'm not an expert on this kind of thing, but it looks one leg is always in front and one is always behind like a weird gallop. The whole thing could do with being smoother aswell, especially the arms.

    Thanks, I'll keep that in mind.

    Its cause its only 4 frames for both of those really. You don't see the legs pass over each other so it does look weird, yes. Anyway the point of this was to just get the hang of animation in general, I've never gone anywhere near this kind of stuff before and this is about as amateur as it gets.

    Final version of my painting, sorry for potential spam. Pretty happy with this overall despite some errors, going to try and render a less 'corky' face next time and stay away from hair for the foreseeable future Hopefully goes down well as I'm going to print it for my girlfriend who recently dip dyed her hair pink :) (btw is the background too cheesy? I might not include it afterall :p)

    I'm having a lot of trouble finding what posters to print for concerts.

    Everyone seems to have a different "favorite" piece of mine, but I only want to print the best ones. I'm gona dither them when I know which ones I want, so they will still be shaded, just less colorful.
    I guess I want the best, most contrasting, and most interesting/intricate pieces to print.

    Anyway,
    would you buy any of these as posters or prints? which ones your favorite? (Idk if the mickey mouse one is copyright infringing though....)












    (If someone really wants to be nice, you could see all my work here http://stuartart.tumblr.com/ And then tell me what ones your favorite)
