    Neat concept. Funky background but I like the end result and the way they reflect on the metal surfaces. Dig his expression too.

    Is this for one of those contests they're always holding or just for your own amusement?

    Couple of tech things: first, the shadow on the pectoral muscle goes too far saturated blue, especialy on the front shadow cast from the arm. While i do understant your motives, know that as colors shit into shaded areas, not only do they shift in color, but they lower in saturation. Also the use of blue in the shadows is inconsistant; some areas you have a dark brown instead.

    The other thing (and this is minor) is the color of the reflected ambient light on the mechanical arm in front of the chest. It is blue when in fect it would be reflecting a yellow hue from the skin.

    Last thing, and this is most promenant, it the background; very distracting and (sorry...) but pretty yucky to look at.

    ON plus side I like the face a lto and the facialy expression looks nice. Plus the overall mood is happy.

    BLAST ON YOU!

    That's pretty rad, but I must agree on the background, although I know why you put it in. I assume Alias Sketchbook Pro is PC only? - mh

    I agree on the BG, it's pretty messy. Kudos to you for doing this in Alias sketchbook though, I can't stand that peice of shit.

    perhaps this is off topic, but that program is LAME! They were running it on the demo Wacom Cintiqs at siggraph and it feels like a dumbed-down kiddie paintbox. Theres no customizability at all.

    I'm amazed you were able to pull this off with that shoddy program...

    fukifino - Thanks! It was for a pamphlet for Alias Sketchbook Pro

    pac23 - thank you!

    nardfrog - thanks for the c&c! This piece is more about the fun of experimenting with paints and colors. It was painted pretty loose and experimental. Not intended to be realistic really...

    Didn't notice the mechanical arm in front of the chest though... thanks!

    yelahttam/Blackarts - Yeah... the background was a little problematic to do because the image is 6000x6000 pixels and the biggest brush size is only 100 so I figured I'd do the background like it was slapped on with a whole bunch of different colors and paint strokes.

    young paddy1 - I wish... lol

    McNallyism - I see where you're coming from but I heard a bunch of the functions for the next version and it's going to have a lot more useful stuff. I use Photoshop, Painter, and Sketchbook all for different things and when it comes down to just sketching and working ideas out, Sketchbook is much better for that kind of stuff because of it's simplicity (just my opinion).
