    lighting and the way the clothing folds looks really realistic.

    Seems like the head and neck both seem to be out of proportion with the rest of the figure, though?

    Capprotti this is incredible! I love your painting style. Especially the clothing is very well executed...

    eh... i feel kinda dumb asking... but was is it about? what does it mean? he looks desperate, like he's searching for something in all those newspapers, but can't find it. the spotlight is great. it feels like there are piles and piles of newspaper in the darkness and he's all alone... kinda creepy when i think about it. i love pictures that make me think... great work. keep it up!

    oh, one crit... just noticed: it's looking like his jaw extends far behind his ear.. doesn't look allright to me...

    i agree with the post above.. the black lines around his face and the upper part of his shirt really start to flatten him out. if you notice (his) right leg.. there is no outline and it fits in space a whole lot better. just something to look for next time around.. other than that pretty solid.

    I think its Scratched.

    Thanx a lot guys, I really appreciate your crits.

    Janni - You're right on the money. This issue is about him being lost in the research he has to do to take down a powerful public figure. You hit it right on the nose. You're kinda right about the jaw. I have to clarify that.

    Jens & Scratched Glass- When I first read your reply I got pretty defensive really quick, but then I actually looked at the picture You're absolutley right, there are some weird subtle things goin on there I have to fix. The out line was intentional at first but now I see your point. Fortunately they are problems that are easy to fix. Thanx for the good eyes!!! I'll post the other covers as well as the revision of this one soon. Keep an eye out.

    i like it a lot .... i think black area must be more little to increase repetitivity of newspaper and the "lost" of the character in these ones...
    (i hope you can understand what i mean... my english is not very good)

    Update

    I'm working on the fourth piece to my series. Unfortunately it's going way toooooo slow. I'm tryin to make sure everything is right for these characters to translate from 2D comic style to a more rendered painted style. They are terrible digital pics since the original is so large so bare with me. Wish me luck, and as always C&C Welcome. What the hell am I still doing here, I gotta finish this thing!!!!!







    Oh, and behemot5, I do understand what you're sayin. It took a lil persistance but it paid off I see what you mean, I think I'm to lazy to change it, but hey... Ya never know.

    Thanx for the good words heiesuke. As for the nature of the project... It's my Senior Thesis, based on a comic that a good friend and I have been working on for a couple years. As for the story, I'd love to share it with you, and I'd really like to use all the right words, but I'm beat and I'm gonna hit the sack for now. But I'll fill ya in soon. Keep an eye out. By the way, your work is tight. You have a nice Drew Posada photoshop thing goin on with your women. And your GD reeeally sweet. If you have any free time and you wanna mess around with somethin, I'd love to see what you could do as far as Cover Type for my painting. If you're interested the comic book title is Zero Faith. Have Fun!!!!

    Here's the first cover that I scanned a couple of weeks ago. I've done revisions since then, but the overall painting is the same. The problem I'm having is how to make the tube look like a tube. What can I do to really give it a convincing tube effect. Any paintover's would be greatly appreciated. Thanx.

    Try some highlights on the glass at the front. Eg highlights that would actually be infront of the baby image. Probably easiest to play around with in photoshop then painting.

    This would create more depth and roundness in the tube.

    Thanx a lot for the advice guys. I'm working on the revisions in painter. If I had the time, I'd do them in oil, but hopefully I'll have the drive after the deadline (tomorrow) to add all the details to the actual painting. Thanx again guys.

    Mike
