    @raverrunner: didn't you finish your spear already before the challenge? it's somehow lazy, isn't it? i went through your portfolio... so don't make the next topic for those weapons you already have

    Kelp, I put him in there because we didnt have many entries, and I decided to put everyone up.

    Addle, Yeah, but its a spear. It was not in the rules I made that you could not use art that you have made for yourself from the past. I just wanted people to put up the best spear that they made...in general.

    Bestow gets my vote... that's pretty much the best painting I've ever seen! He's amazing!

    Actually I went for Richfloyd because he actually takes this stuff seriously!

    Thanks for the feedback guys, I have thick skin to feel free to crit hard. I'm looking to develop my skills to a level that I could actually get paying jobs one day... I look at the stuff in other's sketchbooks and am just amazed at the talent on this site.

    Dude, everyone here (maybe except Bestow) takes this seriously. Otherwise we would just see a bunch of stick figures.

    WOTW #1 - The Spear - Voting


    First to notice are the bamboo segment-like structure on the shaft and the
    slight dents and etchings on the tip of the blade. Both effects are made with
    just a few brushstrokes, yet look very realistic. This is good, not wasting
    time trying to polish a spot, but instead knowing by heart what
    bamboo/metal looks like (by drawing it from reference a lot), and then using a
    few strokes to achieve it. It are exactly these kinds of details that can make
    a great drawing.
    Quickly on the spiral thing, each winding is spaced different and has a
    different size, which I think works because the whole spear is a chaotic
    orclike thing.
    Then, the rows of teeth. The upper row looks good, but the bottom row is
    displaced. It either needs to be moved up, or rotated so it points more
    downwards (don't correct it though). Imagining 3D-objects and then drawing
    them is hard, only cure is reference/practice.

    But the biggest thing here is the lack of background. White is a terrible colour
    to draw on, especially if you're posting on conceptart (since it has this sandy
    brown background). You're in a challenge and you want to win, and you have
    a very good drawing of a weapon (I just saw your other entry, the knife, and
    wow o_0), but the whole thing is spoiled by the white bg.
    Don't leave it white, turn it into something that puts your weapon on a
    pedestal. It can be something simple like a few streaks of colour, or a little
    more like a sketch of a weaponrack, or a full drawing of a man holding the
    spear. Doesn't really matter which you pick, as long as you don't pick white.
    For instance, with the knife, if you put it on a marble table that thing would
    be an instant winner.

    But hey, it's a good spear. And that knife...that is great!

    Kelp- thanks for the crit. Great feedback. I totally appreciate the time you spent on it. I agree with your comments- I'll definitely work on putting in some sort of background on my next entry. Thanks for the encouragement!
