    Note: the shadows still need work, yes, but as dan points out later in the thread, they were actually much worse, and needed an immediate fix
    (dont work after drinking on a saturday night!)

    slow warm-up (blasted mellow Sundays)

    ExiledRed & btw Why oh why, did you use the pixel spray for the shadows? I crave an answer or I'll loose myself into some void of thought.

    Its a fair point, dan.

    Actually I cast the shadow on a dissolve layer, and yes I know it looks like sh**

    I use these sessions for personal experimentation and development of my abilities, I've been trying to find a use for the dissolve layer, and I figured that If I textured the ground with noise, a dissolve layer would blend a shadow in to the textured surface, without the need for displacement maps.

    Luckily because I layer practically every brushstroke I can easily remove it later when I have time, and attempt a better approach.

    Keep in mind, that what might be an artistic 'faux pas' to some is actually groundbreaking stuff for me, given my education in this field is very limited.

    Also keep in mind, that I do all my work with a crap computer, a dodgy mouse, disposable retractable pencils and a $50 scanner.

    I have never held a tablet, or seen one in use, I couldn't paint a wall black with a real brush and I learned perspective drawing from my son's 'how to draw hot wheels cars' manual when I was thirty.

    So expect me to break new ground in the art of the cliche, safe and downright crap, but appreciate what Im up against too

    ExiledRed Its a fair point,

    but,

    Well you see I think you destroyed your otherwise decent images with the shadow for several reasons - and you where not able to convey an artistic idea into my (perhaps narrow and tiny ) brain - & for me, in was just a screw-up.

    While...

    (completely mouse generated, with the shadow on a different layer etc.)

    In my mind makes your piece pretty good (I was to lazy to fix the horizon/wall that is my other pet pewee, but the later is more understandable, at least to me).

    EDIT - oh and the light in general

    Anyway I hope I haven't been too dastardly, and welcome and good luck.

    Dan,


    thanks for your points. I corrected my first piece for now, will do others when the kids arent bugging me. The claw on the left was meant to be raised, and you are right, I communicated that badly.

    Thanks for the kick.

    Hamsta - I'm not sure whether you're kidding or are serious, but nice work on the pedals.

    Making the rare appearance...

    These took a while. Worked on them off and on during the whole day... Still fleshing out this approach. First one is my favourite, despite his wonky footing. I did actually make shadows for these, but they didn't improve anything.

    William,

    Excellent stuff, really humbling.

    I believe you like the first because the headshape invokes Geiger's Alien.

    I like it best because I'm gravitating towards the comic book, and if I had to draw these robots multiple times from different angles and adaptive to my own style, I think the first one (and the second) would cause me less headaches.

    All of them are fantastic though, and my son thinks the second one is best.

    (never underestimate a child's opinion, when it comes to Sci-fi or fantasy is my personal belief)
