    Who's your favorite new kid?

    Hey all, I've been hitting up some comic book forums trying to get feedback, and having little luck getting valid critiques. Everyone here seems to have a lot to say, so here's the cover for a comic i'm pitching at Wizard World Chicago in August. Also go to my website ( www.josholland.com ) and tell me what you like or don't like. I just want to see what people are responding to.

    Thanks,

    Josh

    Seriously man, get rid of the lens flare. Other than that, good stuff.

    Try painting on the flare, or extreme light.. Make it look more like part of the picture.

    Yes get rid of the flare! It's like a smear of feces on a van gogh

    Other than the obvious, it's great. I was going to right click> save but there's just one thing you must do :mad:

    Why is is hair like that? It definately takes away from the whole picture, it being the lightest part (and given no explanation [if it was on fire, maybe?]). And what others said, it being too symmetrical on the body. Nice background.

    In the peice above I really like the backlit edges, they look great.

    I like your site - especially the sketch book, it loads fast and it's fun.

    well I think this cover is very nice, the pose is alittle stiff, but that has been said before, and I won't mention the ens-lay are-flay cause i'm sure you've already gotten the point. I don't think the hair is as bad as MOS667 said it was, i think it looks fine. And the background is clearly the best part of the picture, great job there.

    Oh and one more thing that i don't know whether it's just my taste or not, but to me the green accents in the skintone make this piece seem almost too colorful. I guess what i'm trying to say is that in a night scene or a scene that takes place in dim light everything loses saturation and shifts significantly to the cool side of the color wheel, unless lit by another scource, as this clearly is. (so far this is what the pic is already doing), But when the separate light scource does illuminate other things, it will tint whatever its lighting and therefore the forehead lightscource's color(which you should probably draw by hand ) should probably have a greater impact on the skin color.

    Man I was rambling there for a second and I don't even know if i said anything coherent. Oh well, it's just my opinion in any case.

    As for the stuff on the website, it's clear you have a very good personal style going, and the website itself is pretty slick, I wish I had more of a crit. hehe keep it up
