    I realy dont know what is wrong with me. I know if I were to sit in front of an image and spend 2-3 hours on it, it could look realy incredible, maybe even profesional. I just cant seem to finnish anything! EVER!!

    3-4 hours. Wacom and Photoshop.


    Hmm... I failed to get the wooden look on the peg-leg.

    I might try this DSG but I doubt I'll get around to it. Anywayz I heard that not much critting was going on in here so I thought I'd drop a few crits now before there's 20-40 posts and I'm too lazy to.

    injection223: Kinda small so its hard to crit, I'd give the important lines more weight... you seem to have the same problems I do when sketching digitally, try Painter or Open Canvas for sketching. You might get better results (cleaner lines atleast). Also... nice to see you post art, ppl that post comments AND show that they work hard on their art tend to get more attention.

    Hazzard: If your having trouble making yourself finish a piece you should lay down all your base colors first, you should probably do it anyway even if it doesn't affect your motivation. I suggest it for 2 reasons really. The first being that if you have your colors in place already you can see if the composition works earlier and it will feel alot closer to being finished. From there you can do lighting, then detials (which I'm guessing is your favourite part). The second reason is that painting straight onto white is an art no-no. A color can look different depending on what color it sits next to, for example if you lay down a yellow onto a simple white background, fill in the details then paint red next to it, the yellow might then seem more orange, green or brown. So by the end of the painting the colors will seem off a little. In my experience highlights seem to be the most effected. If you block in all the colors first you'll automatically deal with it without having to think about it. You might already know this and decided to remove the colors so you could post the face so I could be rambling on for nothing but just in case... . (it also means f*** all if you get your values right). Also your colors are very saturated but it might be suitable for this topic.

    Aprat: Nice texture for the birds feathers, the beak has good rendering too. If I were you I would concentrate on learning to structure my drawings more (yeah I'm talking about that boring "seeing shapes in what your drawing" crap). Your drawings look like you don't use any construction lines, try using them more and you might find that your characters will seem more balanced and that body parts wont go off at wrong angles. You already said this about the peg leg but it doesn't look like wood, it looks like gold. I see some attempt to make a wood grain texture on it, it obviously needs more contrast and the fact that it looks like gold would suggest too much yellow (try a greyish-brown instead). And same thing I said to Hazard... colors are very saturated but it might be appropriate for this topic.

    I hope some of this was helpful.

    In the year 1871 (22,517ad) the age of exploration is in it's earnest, and so is the age of piracy, mostly these privateers hunt after ships carrying relics of a civilization long gone, which seem to be of higher technological capacity, but were apparently unable to survive the nuclear disaster that lead to the rise of the bugs

    Pirate River Otter

    They call him "Whiptail" Gibbs. He may be just the first mate, but he doesn't take crap from anyone... except the Captain, maybe.




    The beginning of a drawing... I'm just posting the outline for now, because this was fun to make and I'll probably finish it after the deadline. This was the first thing that popped into my head... maybe influenced by Redwall, and definitely by kyoht's otter drawing. The link's down though for that one.

    Yearrgh!

    I had to resist the temptation to create Jack "Sparrow"....so here's what I did instead....felt like being a tad lighthearted.

    Dang, just missed the deadline. Oh well. This one was more for a friend of mine who came up with the name "The Dread Pirate Monkeybeard" a long time ago. I sculpted him, just never got around to drawing the old sea dog.



    Favorites so far: the hippo and the otter.
