LiquidJack Still Here
Thought it was time to give up the old sketchpad and begin a new one. I'll start off by showing this project I was working on for a good portion of time some months ago. I learned a lot from it and plan to revise my work pipeline and get better results. I'll post more pages as soon as I can.

About damn time you did something with that old pencil drawing
The colors really help everything to pop out clearly...
Now you just need to paint up some more of your drawings
Great framing of the action in those sequential panels. About the
only crit I would have is that there is a strong sense of unreality.
The Figures are to plastic-y and give the sense of posed toys.
(maybe just a different shader or stripping out speculars would help?)
Also, they contrast too much with the backgrounds, making
them seem separate from the world they are in.
Also, in general, give some thought to more variety of color and
value schemes. Most of your scenes are set in pitch blackness with
loads of fully saturated colors popping out. Maybe try some mix of
saturated and muted colors, or some brighter lighting, or just experi-
ment with more variety of 'moods' of light and color.
Have you ever seen work by the artist Sam Kieth? He's probably mostly
known for the old MTV cartoon 'The Maxx' (which was also a long-running
comic book). I only just discovered him recently, but his art kind of makes
me think of you

“When forced to work within a strict framework,
the imagination is taxed to its utmost – and will
produce its richest ideas. Given total freedom,
the work is likely to sprawl.”

Bludhund - Hey Sam Keith is one of my favorite comic artist. I used to have the Mtv Maxx series on video, but I think I lost it. The 3D comic is very plasticy for sure. I am still in the developing stages for the next round of this graphic novel. I have come a long wy with Zbrush rendering and I hope it shows next time I put it together. Funny thing about the darkness and saturated color style I work with, another artist gave me the same remark. So I think I will do some work with less saturation.
This is in work. Ran into lots of trouble figuring the costume out. The Spiderman pattern in 3D need tons of tinkering because of a blurred effect. If I had more POWER in my computer I probably wouldn't have this problem. C&C
