    it looks nice.
    i may use it as a wallpaper if it weren't because of the unnecessary black stripes.

    I was trying out the technique I use for oil painting with this photostudy, using an under layer painting of dark skin tone and then just work on planting colors on top, all one one layer and decided to record it. Definitely some proportions I could have fixed but I'm done with this.

    I like your style quite a bit, just some gripes with your anatomy on them ladies.. your pelvic box needs some more proper definition, and not just an angular box, the lady on the right seems to have the right idea. The one on the left seems to have a really small waiste for a girl.. And generally you seem to end your rib cages too high.. bring them a bit lower. If you were to feel the side of your waist and find the lowest ribcage, usually there'd only be a 2-3 fingers distance to the top of the pelvic box..

    Other than that great characters and style.. Also nice local value compositions on the bottom ones, makes everything pop nicely.
    Ah many thanks, you don't know how much I appreciate these comments.

    As for the anatomy, yeah it's still a bit messy, but it got better since I use trapezoid forms (instead of squares) when constructing the figure.

    Anatomy will get better after practice :)

    I like the really tight letterboxing too - it does something really interesting to the scale of both the ball and the text

    Today I'm going to an open house at the Animation Workshop nearby. They basically offer a bachelor education as animator or CG artist. I've been asked to bring some drawings their students can look at and judge.

    I am absolutely terrified of what the reaction will be.









    I've shown off a couple of these before, but these are all I'll be able to bring along for the open house. I've just recently regained time to draw again so I haven't had the time to prepare with drawings. I wouldn't put these in a portfolio but it'll be nice to know where my chances of getting in stand.

    They only accept 25 people on each course per year so there's some insane competition.

    I need help from someone that is experienced with stenciling designs onto walls. I want to paint a logo on my wall but I don't know how i'm going to stick it on. I have the giant paper stencil that I made (un cut) and I was thinking of using double sided masking tape, coating the side that I want to stick it on the wall with then cutting out the design so each part of the logo has tape on it but double sided masking tape doesn't exist here. Any other suggestions?

    Use normal masking tape on the corners, put a disposable glove on your free hand and press each part you're spraying tight into the wall as you go. Use your paint sparingly and don't spray too close to the wall and you shouldn't have any bleed.

    My scanner decided to work for the first time in who knows how long, so..

    Quick and rough face, kind of skewed but I think I could go places with this style if I did it more often

    It kinda has that look of you did each part individually instead of as a whole.

    the lower left one has a male shoulder/hip ratio

    Edited:

    you should work on the bone structure on all of them, but they are very nice otherwise

    Thanks!

    Basically I just drew the patterns with vectors and boxes n shit and got this



    then just overlayed some textures and effects and stuff and used some masks to wear some of the layers down (I only just discovered layer masks yesterday and they're FUCKING useful).

    I wanted to have some sort of chromey embellishments for the border and the skull etc but it was just impossible to not make it look gross and tacky.

    Anyone got absolutely any thoughts/suggestions/criticisms? He's releasing it commercially (just digitally, by the looks of things) soon so any criticisms would be reaaaaally useful!

    I think if you got some values in there we could tell what's going on, right now it's hard to.

    Also, the people you're drawing are gigantic in comparison to the cars, and the guy's helmet near the top is too high.

    I think this definitely could be interesting if you work on it, since you said it was a "Heavy WIP" but it will remind me of kevlarjens's desert valley shoot-out thing he did a while back. [sub][sub]... I think it was him.[/sub][/sub]

    If he's just releasing as an ebook then you could give the "cover" of the book signs of wear and tear. I.E scan an old dog-eared book you have and make a bump map for your existing image

    but I'm just clumsy lately :(
    I hate that feeling, shit is depressing

    And a gesture type thing, cause I should aim to post more content

    That navy blue seems a little off center with the whole design, other than that, it looks pretty good.

    I am fucking terrible artist, so I decided to join an arcyllics paint class, so on the first day I have no idea what the fuck I am doing, so I decide to paint random sloppy shit and it ends out turning like this.

    Shitty and terrible, but my Dad thought it was cool and decided to scan it for some reason.

    So, I got bored and went to GIMP (How photosohp?) and fucked around with it, ended up making something that looks completely badass and scary IMO.

    Not sure if this belongs here, but whatever. Behold my fuckery.
