Not much time gotta bounce, but I'll get back to you guys soon! Thank you so much for dropping in!
Here's what I got in today on the Newborn piece.
Cropped, added some people in the wombs receding in the BG and some general noodling.

your painting is quite well done. I also enjoy your creatures ^_^
The only thing i have to say is that your faces need work. Usually when the faces are far away. Most of your closer faces look decent. I myself suck at faces from imagination so ya.
By faces i just mean the ones from imagination.

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.
Have you seen "The Machinist" with Christian Bale? He lost 60+ pounds for the role, your Newborn reminds me of the character: http://unrealitymag.com/wp-content/u...0/stickman.jpg
Keep it up!

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.

My57: Glad you like, and thank you for the crit!
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..

i would have darkened the foreground even more on the left, and also right now since there is a equal amt of rendering between the two chars, my eye actually kind of goes thru them to the very background. i might add some glow or hazy smoke to the bug bot so that the guy has more focus.
great tho, good luck

Nice update! The samurai hairstyle is unusual, but the highlights are spot on.
The skintones could be a more consistent. In some areas, the shadows are dull; but there are also very saturated parts--like his forehead. He seems to have been out in the sun for too long. Also, it's not so apparent, but his head shape is strange; notice the area between the bottom of the ear and the black clothing. I believe he's missing some neck/hair over there.
The pose in the second is convincing and the expression is great--I wouldn't want to mess with him. The shadow is a good addition: it really plants him in the space. These are really minor details: The right forearm's shape could be more informative as it's rotation; it doesn't really connect with the hand well I think. Also, it's kinda difficult to tell the pant's texture.
Keep up the good work!
EDIT: 52 pages yeah!

YihyoungLi: Thank you for a really good set of crits! I'll definately have a look at 'em!
hp: Yeah.. I've been hearing about that ear.. hehe.. Rework comin' up!
Right.. so I did a couple of light/color/composition studies from movie stills this weekend.. trying to get outta what I usually do. Noted on 'em which movies they're from I tried to keep it very loose and not fall into my usual render-whoring.. I'll do more of these and try to strike a balance between loose and rendered somewhere.. we'll see where this ends up My definate favourite of these is the one after "From Hell".. Seems the implied detail is sorta working there.. The knife (yeah, the blob in the guy in the foreground's hand ) could probably be better defined in order to get the point across a bit more.. as well as the chair she's sitting in sorta reads as her leg in between 'em there.. So I shoulda rendered some more there, perhaps..
Thoughts, crits and such are very welcome!

Ah thought I had this subscribed; was wondering why it wasn't popping up on my list... fixed either way! hehe great updates man, really strong work. I love this one, great pose and the technique works really well for it (love the Champ/Chimp thing as well hehe). These movie studies are looking really good as well, nice color and contrast as well as a very solid feel to each character.
Not a whole lot I can see to crit; the knife, as you mentioned, is a little wonky but I'm sure that'd be a pretty quick fix. Otherwise I'd say you might want to try to use a bigger brush to block in larger areas, reduce the amount of brush strokes you use a little. You did say these were meant to be looser though, so that might not be helpful in the end hehe... either way just keep it up!
