    Faced!

    First photoshop painting. Started with a brown background and the major dark shapes then built up from there. It was fun! Most of it was done with a mouse.

    Welcome, welcome, sir. Love the concept of the first one. Could be a very dynamic portrait if it gets punched out. You're definitely getting somewhere. Keep posting! ;D

    Concept to almost finished

    Yes, it is a furry, I regret doing it, but hopefully it's good enough you can look past that. My apologies. How is the painting?

    Hey Sage - thanks again for the comments on my sketchbook

    You have some really nice confident cartoon sketches going here - keep it up - post more!

    HotHolly paints looking good but a little fuzzy and 'flat' with the range of colour - maybe introduce some very dark versions of each colour in the deepest shadow to really add more depth - particularly with the HotHollyVanity, her hair is molding with her body a little too much. It also looks a little like only her eye and lips are in focus with the main focus set to the mirror image behind... the taps and lipstick have some excellent lighting going on - sharpen up the shape and edges a little tho

    Anyways, really nice work dude - enjoyed checkin it out - post more!

    Sketches +

    My sketches. I drew the first before goin into the ball game. It's the giant Jesus glove outside Safeco Field and people around it...the next, you can see for yourself. I think that her legs are a little awkward and manly, at least her knee caps are. Her arms are a bit long too. But cool?

    Hey Sage - cool - more stuff!

    That pic of Russ is sweet - top stuff with the strong colour and lighting - my only small crit is make sure to keep style consistent as the light shoulder brushstroke and some on the jeans look a little sloppy and fuzzy. but I didn't even notice the fist time i looked at it so nice one! keep it up

    ok - on to the flying woman - again cool pic! but as you say there are one or two anatomy hiccups - I'm not saying I'm an expert and I hope you don't mind but here goes:

    1st pic shows what I would think are the problem points in that pose...

    But personally (2nd pic) I'd shift her hips forward a little to enhance the energy by complimenting the rest of the pic a little more.

    I've also shown a slightly more angular line to her chin, narrower shoulder and very slight curve to the top of her left breast

    Hope this helps! Rock on and post more though this is some cool stuff! - oh yeh I like the ball game sketch you captured the feeling well

    Red face Comics

    A few bits of my comic strip that is starting. They're not chronological, just bits of the story. I want to start chronologically, but this was for a class, so I just needed a few mini stories.
    This comic is based on the experiences of me and my friends living in student housing. I'm working on my hatching and cross hatching. Any advice? I'm not very good yet.

    Hey Sage sorry it's been a while - good start to the comic strips!

    With the hatching really just be consistent and try not to be too random with the directions as it can start to look like scribbles ( unless that's the look you're after!) overall your hatching is pretty cool here!

    otherwise - try to be a little more dynamic with the action sequences maybe

    out of the last 6 frames personally I'd have allison diving to grab kellys leg to try to stop her 'getting owned' (frame 2) and on the frame with stars etc (frame 4) I'd make the stuff going on effects a little more powerful

    overall readable and understandable and nicely laid out (maybe vary the size of a few more of the boxes) - keep it up dude!

    post more -

    Spot on! I think I did this too quickly. It was an assignment, so I had a deadline and didn't spend enough time on it. I think I might redo it sometime soon and definitely make it more dramatic. THANKY!

    I haven't posted in a while

    Woow. Been too long since I've been on here. Here's some stuff that's fairly recent. In the last 6 months or so. The last 6 are my take on "Social Darwinism". It was for a Wester Civilization class in school. So, look at them as a series. Comments and crits are requested.

    Hey - looking pretty good - I'm liking the strength of the inking as an impact. A few pointers - the arms look just a little jelly-like in that they seem to be loosing form. remember to visualize how what you're drawing is constructed - the bone and joints how they pivot and shape and tensions of muscles/tendons. The other point was shadows on her face don't seem to quite match the shape of her hair. but overall shaping up pretty nice - keep up the good work

    Question Part of a project

    This was done a couple of weeks ago. The guy is being shot at. You might have noticed. My best hatching yet, I think. Improvements? I know there are some.

    Humpty Dumpty Sat on a Wall

    This is the character for a small comic that I'm working on for class. It's a different take on the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty. You'll see what comes of it.

    I think i like the bold lined version of the brown woman sketch the most, the hair looks pretty awesome.
    Its prolly because theres no toenail on it, but I keep thinking her right foot's big toe looks really weird.
    Cool stuff man, hope to see more.

    Nice new stuff Sage - keep it coming

    the superhero is cool but (crit alert!) I'd advise keeping all the shading even and tidy like on the torso, check and tighten up your anatomy(although it's certainly not 'bad'), even exaggerate the muscles+joints a little more. The only other thing is his pose is a little 'weak' for a superhero in action situation, kinda like he spotted some nice flowers in a tree lol

    not quite hitting the - POW! SMASH-CRUMBLE.. AARH - 'Darkbot is that all you've got - you'll have to try harder! .... :thinks: (goodness! - this guy is tough, I'm gonna have to think of something...)'

    Sorry if my crit comes across a little harsh - your shading is certainly progressing and the overall is cool I also like the individual style your developing with the Humpty Dumpty - nice strong inks.

    Keep up the good work!
