    Whow..Mr Hand, you have some issues in that head of yours my friend. Or you are listening to some very disturbed people. Nice topic!..

    Edit: I had to have a quick go. Had no real clue what to do for Tinderman but I tried.

    Here`s my contribution. I confess Tinderman (I have no idea what or who that is) looks a little bit like Bender.

    Wow, I think I have reached other 'breakthrough' of mine... out of blue I decided to do it at an entirely different approach and to my surprise, it's awfully a lot easier and I could do it far more clean. Learning to see forms definitely helped!

    Enjoy!

    i wasn't sure what tinder mean so i looked it up and this is what it says: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tinder
    found no other explanation so the "joint"-man was born

    This one seemed harder than previous ones; maybe it was the inclusion of three separate characters. In any case i didn't have any keen ideas for 2/3 robots. I did a sketch trying to make 'em fit together:

    DSG 1438: Sci-Fantasy • TINDER-MAN, GUNJUGGLER, & THE EGGBABY... BEST OF ROBOT PALS

    I suppose the gunjuggler (center) wasn't so bad, but that eggbaby was really just phoning it in there. I worked up the tinder-man though, because I thought the idea of a fireplace inside a robot was entertaining...especially if that robot happens to resemble a coke machine.

    DSG 1438: Sci-Fantasy • TINDER-MAN, GUNJUGGLER, & THE EGGBABY... BEST OF ROBOT PALS

    Needs more details to be a finished sort of thing...also feet or arms. The glowing blue eyes really aren't selling it fully as a robot by themselves.

    Hey - thank you so much for the crit. I'm curious how I would use warm tone to seperate them some more from the background? I'm afraid I'd ruin the... how would I say it... that "trippy" feeling with blue and cool tones?

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Wee.

    I haven't been able to keep up with the last couple sketch days due to crap at my day job, but I had the time today to beat on this. It's not a subject I regularly tackles so it was a lot of fun for me. I approached it in a more cartoon like manner than I normally would as well which made it even more fun.

    DM: J.S is spot on and it's that crit that can turn an average sketch into a striking image for me. Your image is essentially a three light rig.

    A white/green spot light from the top. A Purple Omni/spot from the bottom either left or right. And finally a blue internal/neon source coming from various characters. All three are cold harsh colors which maybe was the look you want. Warm one of them up or add another subtle one and you strike a better balance.

    To make it all gell better you simply need to follow the rules you set down for yourself by placing the lights. If you have purple light hitting the bottom of the gun then it needs to hit the underside of the jugglers legs, under her chin, her rear leg etc. By only placing it on some items it confuses the eye and the brain and the brain says this doesn't feel right. The green light cast onto the top of the characters is accurate in most parts of the image. You just need to carry on with the other lights and warm the piece up a little imho.

    I'd rim light the three characters with Purple and Green. Keep the Neon blue but give it some contrast and add some warmth from the left of the image (Not much, just a hint. )

    Great image and it's sparked a little debate which is always good.

    j.s. sabastian, thanks hehe. I think every once in a while everybody gets the feeling he or she is ignored by the critics. You can only get your pencils out and blast them away with another killer drawing. About your sketch I would say it looks to woody for robots and its a bit hard to read. The warm lighting gives it a push in the right direction. Cheers

    Man you J.S. and Southern, I think I'll go and kill myself too. lol! No, really, I'm extremely thankful that you guys helped!

    Now, I definitely understand better why my sketches haven't been so successful yet. And southern, your sketch/reference rocks! I now see that I need to really pay attention to all lights because I think I was more focused on the top light, emphasizing it while leaving everything else out/less refined. Your approach of using soft red in it is interesting! I also noticed that I forgot to use spec in the front like you did, that will add a lot of depth to my image I think... I love how you did the neon light, how they feel so much more integrated due to the dip/ "inside" feeling.

    Thank you so much! Now I'll definitely try to think HARDER and re-work on it. I'll show it to ya soon... hopefully it will pay off.

    See the TURTLE of enormous girth!
    On his shell he holds the earth.
    His thought is slow but always kind;
    He holds us all within his mind.

    Alright, here's mine again. I think I have overdid the values and colors. *shrugs* See why I was trying to keep it limited because I intend to let it go out of control... I dunno if that worked for better or not... hopefully better though!

    j.s. sabastian Hopefully the next couple of years at CCAD will polish this diamond.

    DSG 1438: Sci-Fantasy • TINDER-MAN, GUNJUGGLER, & THE EGGBABY... BEST OF ROBOT PALS I think your choice of palette is a step in the right direction, making the blue pop out of the earth tones.
    Looks like you tried playing with an unconventional composition, which is good, but looks like you ran out of room for gun juggler.

    Last but not least, you need to give more thought to where you use soft or hard edges on your brush.
