Hey d-cept, really nice sketchbook ya got goin here I really like the variety of ideas you've got going here, specifically the newborn ones and the sheet of birds from a couple of posts ago. This recent WIP has a really nice depth to it; you've seperated the fore, middle, and backgrounds quite nicely. Definitely progressing well though, curious as to where ya take it.. keep it up!
Your pencil stuff is really good and the Newborn WIP looks great. Just an idea: perhaps the Newborn could be paler--he hasn't seen the sun throughout his existence. That could also easily distinguish him from the dark background.
The Newborn wip is looking great.
I like the colours your using here.
The blue and red is nice, and the green in the foreground adds just that little extra!
Good work. And the composition is tight, and there's a great feeling of depth as well.
Here's a couple of crits:
The depth of field going on in the foreground is a cool idea, but as it is now it doesn't work for me. The most subtly blurred insect legs are ok, but the blurred pipe seems kinda wrong. I doesn't feel like it's a part of the picture right now in my opinion. I don't really know how you should fix it. Perhaps make the blur less subtle, or study photos with DoF that you find on the internet perhaps, to get more of a feeling of what it looks like.
Also the anatomy of the guy who is new born is a bit generic.
I guess people who are "constructed" like this might get a generic kind of anatomy, but I think that if you made him really weak, or really strong, that would bring out more of a dramatic effect. You know.. Weak like in very thin and all ribs and such. Or strong with broader shoulders and more muscles. At the moment he looks pretty thin, but he's got muscle as well, so I'm not really sure what is going on.
This is last one is really more of a personal opinion than a real crit though.
Keep up the good work! Looking forward to see this one finished.
Onir: Thanks! I tried as best I could to get a good seperation, so I'm stoked it worked! Need to do more illustrations.. hehe.. they're fun!
YihyoungLi: Hey! No.. haven't seen the film.. guess I'm gonna have to now! I heard that he was advised not to go so extreme by a doctor while filming that thing, though... haha.. Thanks for the suggestion on the Newborn
Spect: Thanks homie! Always in here.. hehe.. YOU RRROOOOCCCKKK
zelda_geek: Yep.. totally right.. I need to do more studies... I'll pick it up and post soon! Thanks for the crit on the Newborn piece!
Shin: Damn... you really sat down and thought this one through didn't you? Awesome crit man! Hope everything is good on your side of town Done with that summer gig yet?
Ok.. So I got so many suggestions from people not only on here, that the grey scale was way more creepy, so I went for a monochromatic with a kicker for the final.. I'm gonna brush up some more on this thing at some point, but this is what I got in as a final for the competition.. Got a new gig as well I moving into a new apartment while doing this, so I was spread a little thin a while there.. haha..
