getting rid of old stuff, sorry
liked the monstrosities. esp the 4th one. the shuttle painting is pretty nice too. the weakest is the last as you already said.
one crit, the legs of your monsters seems a bit small, as if they can't support the upper body.
keep it up the nice work.
my old sketchbook
Awww cute monster, tho i'm sure he would bite my head off if he got the chance. The sketch of Chimera was done really well because you can see every aspect of him. Post some more of him!
really nice stuff....
the spiral spaceship and Jethead spark my interest in particular....
I have a suggestion on the spiral demon thingy...I would suggest adding more weight to the spaceships outline and more weight at the nose...it would help seperate it from the chaotic background...and make it "pop out"
Wow the turbofanatic drawing looks years ahead of the rest of your drawings...you really put a lof detail into it and it came out very well.
You were born on the 27th, 28th for me, how old will you be?
-Call me Semaj for short.
=D I cant believe you dont want to do art... You should at least attempt freelance or something! I mean, comissions and stuff, on the side. Good luck in your career! Nice stuff!
You have a great grasp on anatomy... and your perspective work is fantastic!
Long Live RED!
Staylor, nice concept work here. The only thing I can say is to work on your poses, or use online images like models or a stock photo web site for free images to study. Great work on your costumes, and your fictional figures are very interesting!
wow you make amazing monsters with beautiful pencil and ink work
Really sweet stuff!
I love your more finished pieces of monsters and crazy fantasy stuff. as far as "creature design" goes these are actually pretty crazy. I also like the primitive warrior with the spiked club and the cat thing in the background, it's more original in terms of character design than a lot of the ho-hum fantasy stuff I see all the time.
Although it looks like you've got an understanding of some basic muscle groups, I think you could benefit from a little deeper study of anatomy, even if it's just checking out a Hogarth or Bridgman book at the library. you're drawing skills are good enough that you could probably improve your anatomy pretty quickly.
I also like that you're not afraid to jump into crazy scenes or unusual poses.
I think it's pretty damn cool that we have an aerospace student on CA.org,
you could probably teach everybody a thing or two about spaceship design!
edit: that last one reminds me of frazetta, I'm sure you've seen his stuff.
Keep up the good work!
I'll be back for more
I really like your monsters and creatures especially the jet head and the one with mouths all over its face, my one and only real crit is take some time over your work, you don't have to rush at it, come back to it if necessary. (I should kinda take my own advice there)
The squadron speed paint you did could do with some blur on the props to add more motion and maybe some different angles for the aircraft to give it a more interesting dynamic.
Good lookin' out! You obviously let your work seep into what you make.. I'll show some of this to my brother..hehe.. he's an airplane-mechanic, going to be a technician this year I think.. He'll blow a wad! He's in love with WWII-fighters..hehe
Poses on your characters are a bit stiff... if they're standing still try for example an exaggerated contrapose (don't know if that's the correct term..) to loosen up the way they come across.
That probably didn't make sense, but I'll leave it there just in case.
about your comic- there's nothing wrong with using a regular douple lined border for the frames, its less gimmicky. try changing the angle of the scene within the frame, like tilt the horizon. having the characters basically the same size throughout tends to be boring, but you haven't really fallen into that yet.
above all, you are telling a story, try and make it so that the audience can understand what's going on without the use of words. even if you are using words.
so I think you are off to a good start for your first comic.
that last piece is incredible... but here s an oppurtunity where the ruler would've been helpful. specifically on the left hand building, it seems to be leaning right a little.
you know what I really like? its that it seems you know how to use ellipses, quite refresshing actually.
Inspireing sketches you got here man!
I really like your style.
I'd love to see some more of the finished up sketches.
The forest fight for sunlight, that takes root in every tree.
Love the monsters you've got here, especially the one with a human face for a forehead. Can't wait to see the final finished piece of the demon fight either. the only real crit i have is on the airplane drawings it looks like they're just hanging there becasue the propellers don't appear to be moving. Otherwise great job and keep it up
Keep updating! I wish we could see more work from you from life. I think you'd benifit from more studies and such. We all would. You'll be able to draw much better from your imagination if you kick those up a few notches. Keep at it, mate!
I love that house....
Don't feel dumb, I did a portrait in watercolor on a canvas because I didn't realize there is watercolor paper for a reason. Ended up coming out pretty good, but it was stolen with a couple other of my portraits a few years ago.
as for your comic, that last page, everything looks samey, like there isn't enough line variation. the clouds look like the desert.
the house: the corner pillar thing close to the center of the page is tilting slightly to the right, so remember to drop a vertical line perpendicular to the ground when you draw, I do it especially for drawing still-lifes, like bottles. One thing that helps avoid that leaning is if you yourself look at the drawing upside down...
I'll try and crit your stuff more often than every 25 days, no promises though
Wow. Great work. But on the last post I got really confused. "Shaman, is that the great dragon?" *scrolls down* Robo Rabbit caught me off gaurd. I thought it was supposed to be the dragon >.<
that bunny does look like it was fun, lol.
and I am seeing more line variation... try making things in the foreground have thicker darker lines than things in the background?
I'm going to try another watercolor robot soon, so keep em peeled... and it won't be so pink. lol
these last ones a re really cool.
The P-51 man's pose is very expressive! Great job!
the boy/plane thing is totally awsome. the guesture, the body, and the whole idea is great. the shading works and i dig the bg(+foreground) the blur you did really adds to the piece and the bg is helpfull but not jumping out at anybody. great job.
the running this is a different story. although it is still better than something i can do, the piece is lacking, especially after looking at the planeboy.
having the back leg like that really kills it. but mainly the guy looks flat. the coloring and shading just isnt enough. deffinitly try more contrast. thats all man. and thnx for critin' my work. gl.
ZOMFG CRIT MY SKETCHES FTW!!!
Thanks for the crit in my SB!
Very true about animal musculature (same thing applies to the skeletal system)...
I like the idea and the stance for the villain, however, some crits:
the way he's standing, you should see the twisting more from his hips up. Right now it's all in one line until you hit his ribs.
Also, I think you should lose the far second hand. It's distracting.
I'm liking the start of the admissions building... and cool little creatures all over the place...
Hey, nice work on this last piece! The buildings are done really well, I wouldn't mind seeing an enviro. or two. The print is well done too, your mother will definitely like it. Keep pushing the anatomy and show us some more studies! Your creatures will benefit from that. Keep it up!
Edit: didn't realize that I was looking at the first page when I thought I was looking at the second. But yea, studies!
