    fish head'd:UPDATED-July15 pg 3

    Hi guys,

    this is my first artwork posting here on conceptart.org I've posted on deviant art mostly-but seems there's more pros here than there.
    anyways I'll talk less and post more


    critiques welcome always!


    description--was my first drawing/painting after opening up my 21wsx cintiq tablet a couple months back---man I love that thing!!!

    Frickin' great... I wish the level of detail on the figure was more consistent from head 2 toe but it's a really fun, imaginative and dynamic piece regardless.

    Well done!

    Wow great. The way his body look compared to his head turned out pretty sweet! Nice stance too.

I guess that's a poor excuse afterall, since I posted it anyways, thanks!

    ---I googled stone fish immediately after reading your comment and found a pic of a red one that looks just like this guy! well sorta-the basic headshape is almost perfect though! blew my mind--I obv. saw this or something similar and had it etched in my memory at some point thnx 4 pointing that out! was interesting for sure

    Awesome stuff, It looks like you've put a abyssal fish on a cartoon body.
    I truly love.

    totally awsome, just swung by your deviantart too-really love your characters-they have very cool proportions, your transitions into colour are cool too, bookmarked you over at DA and will be checkin back, rock on

    Thats pretty funny although I think the hand thats visible to us might be on backwards.

    That thing is freaky!

    Awesome though, good imagination.
    At first i didn't think he was holding a gun, i thought it was his tentacles. But then realised it has a red laser beam coming out. Heh. Don't know why i thought it was tentacles T_T

    Hey, I am having troubles with my new Cintiq 21 UX, ever since I got it has been scratching hardcore, there are currently scratches all over the surface.
    i only touch 3 things on it:
    the pen (not sharpened by me into a spear or anything)
    a glove (not a spiked biker glove)
    a towel (not made of broken glass)

    there are scratches all over, i got 2 damamged pixels, and one pixel sized piece of dirt under the screen. I got pissed today and send em email for an RMA.

    please tell me if you got any scratches, or pixel problems in a PM.

    great painting, the facial design is really interesting. i feel that the body doesnt live up to it entirely though.

    Yeah I'm trying to decide whether I'll be getting a Cintiq in the next few months... should I spring for the huge one or stick to the 12 inch? I feel like 12 Inch would be sufficient for me, but I dunno...
    Excellent painting, really. Very interesting, very engaging, though I'd like to see a bit more continuity between the head and the rest of the body in terms of level of detail.
    What are the strongest aspects of the Cintiq? I don't mean what can it do, cuz I've read all about it, but what about it makes it most valuable to YOU?

    ---thnx! I've got images of Earthworm Jim, Calvin&Hobbes and those awesome caricatures by sebastian kruger etched in my head, so I guess it just made sense to me

    ---awesome! I've started my online posting on DA, and would be more comfortable posting random stuff there-conceptart.org seems like only the best stuff should get posted-but thats just my opinion

    --- hahaha! backwards!? I agree that it looks weird-not sure I can see the backwards aspect you mention-but def. needs to be fixed somehow--when will it be done is the real question...thnx btw!

    ---hmm ya the gun may be too organic to register as a firearm-I have sketches of the gun with tentacles coming out of it, like some kind of extendo-arm tool rather than a gun-which makes your comment interesting lol-as mentioned above I may or may not revisit this one-i'll be sure to post if I do with all crits in mind

    --- yup a common crit about detail balance can't let anything slip by this forum! I love that! great way to grow--about the cintiq--my only complaint is how hot it gets by the little led at the top--and there is def. a feeling of scratchin with the pen nib from time to time(rarely)-but I just rotate it and/or swap it out--but no excessive scratches on the surface of the screen or dead pixels(as far as i can tell)---hope it was ok to reply right here---if you would like further discussion on it pm me or maybe start a thread somewhere---is there a section that would suit this topic?
    ps thnx!

    ---well I catch myself getting giddy and actually smiling or even giggling like a child while using mine-I have the widescreen one-considered the medium size---I have 2 friends with the 12wsx --- one likes it and the other misses the bigger size(which he has at work-so he uses both) I have considered getting a laptop and the small cintiq(b4 buying this one) and I think that if I was on the move more it would be an awesome combo---that or the modbook
    to answer your question: I value not having to scan things the MOST...not sure why but I loathe that process hahaha...I like being able to start sketching on the tablet and going straight to tonals or even colouring if I so choose---I LOVE THIS about the cintiq...its like having my sketchbook-AND markers to tone or Paints to colour it! with no mess---ya you can do the same by drawing something with the wacom tablet-i started with that--actually with the old school giant wacom tablet-then graphire-then intuos 3-but always felt some type of disconnect with the work--I love the process of drawing with pen to paper---with my head down and nose right in it...i love that the cintiq rotates like paper on a desk or like an animation disc and I love that I can put a ruler up to it and trace off a line if i wanted to---I love that its a second monitor for me-with my reference or anything I want in the other screen---Also I was very VERY concerned with the worry of lag between the pen and the screen before trying it-but I only notice the VERY slight lag if I'm really lookin' for it. I imagine with a faster processor or more RAM it would be completely eliminated-but like I said-not even a small concern at all after using it
    I feel like I've rambled on-hope it makes sense
    maybe we should start a thread somewhere about the cintiq tablets if one doesnt already exist?
    ps thnx! agreed about the detailing balancing as mentioned above...haha

    I think the head's great, but think the outfit's a bit too smooth of a contrast. I'd even say you can keep the outfit, as long as you "grunge" it up a bit, put some dirt on it or something.

    ---ya good point-pretty insane neat freak if he can keep that suit so clean out in the dusty environment your point about suit vs head is repeated above so it's pretty safe to say I've gotta do something about it eventually
    thnx for ur input! and for lookin'
