Hi everyone, I'm Edwin David aka dwinbotp here at CA and at most other sites I frequent. Mostly I'm just a lurker and an art afficionado and I try to participate in art contests rather randomly, but mostly a lurker LOL. Thought I'd share some of my mess, crits are welcome, i'm still a newbie and have so much to gain from peers since I'm self taught pretty much all these years. Enough babble, here's a few stuff...
spaztastic thanks for the crit, will get to it soon. Glad you liked the anime style
I recently found out about the competitions here at CA. These Chows have been most fun and I've been entering(or at least) try to enter each new one that comes along. Truly inspiring works from everyone, hope to do the same someday
CHOW146 Titiana, CHOW147 Baba Yaga and currently finishing up CHOW148, some private Investigator named E.G. Brownstone(whattaname!)
Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on Fu!

You recent colours in the chows are excellent. The anatomy is very good already, just some minor issues (Titanias boobs for example). The b&w are also very nice, I especially like the second one. Nice pose on that one.
Wondergirl really seems low quality for you. It just doesn't work for me, colour and composition-wise. The lensflare is the biggest problem I guess. Paint a sun if you'd like it to be there, it would actually look pretty fierce, but don't rely on those techniques.
Thanks Janos for your input, much appreciated. The supergirl piece was done a few years back when I was struggling to use Photoshop hehe, actually I'm still struggling, started using Painter and stopped using PS, now I'm back on the PS since my Painter conked out an won't open these days. Oh, WTH, I do plan on redoing her, maybe a different pose but something similar
recent Chow entry WIPs and one that I think is finished, don't wanna play with it anymore
The latest CHOW is Female Sith Lord, I wanted to see if a Mandalorian Fett would look is he(Boba) has any offspring(hidden) to turn into the Dark side.
Alexandr Pascenkoglad you like them, thanks! Feil MagnusI will try to post more as I make em
some more stuff...AVP(babies version)they fought for candy, it's how it all started LOL
A recent C.O.W. entry, Colossus From Hell, I called it the Sin Eater...
and my Wacom as a mimic and the BG is what my messy workplace looks like ^_^"
zaorr,zweiDee,Grandmassa Mr. Spect Glad you loved the AVP, was so much fun to do,, much appreciated guys! zeo-x I used to sneak looks at my sister's homework and lessons during college(she took up fine arts) and would take a crack at them at times. I envied her then but I'm quite happy with how my stuff turned out anyway. Always learning still though Josef K.I'll try to update this book often, thanks for the words of encouragement, I need it! UCT thanks, I'm making it a habit to try to enter the CHOWS every week. COW too! and it's confusing to see how other people vote, general consensus and all that but I think it's really good practice and I'm having fun along the way. Who knows? someday I may be lucky enough to win one, hahaha.
small update: my current Chow entry, an initial concept for the next COW and after seeing the GIJOE trailer, I felt like a sketch
Daryl Zero: "A few words here about following people. People know they're being followed when they turn around and see someone following them. They can't tell they're being followed if you get there first."
youve got a real talet for keeping your characters and pieces away from static and boring. Really digging your style, and the light in the queens consort piece is very good. the way his coat wraps around to the back of his left leg makes for a bit of a weird transition though. My eye keeps drifting back to that part of it like something doesnt look qite right.
Much kudos on sharing your work, its inspirational
Pixie Bergman No problem dude, I'm happy to share more Tomorrow-Man hehehe, I kinda stopped caring about the ratings, it's not an accurate gauge for happiness Keep dropping by, I'll keep updating Ogreboy, meticulous Thanks guys! mimer Thanks for the crit and encouragement! Snake Eyes FTW!!! jatherip glad you like the pencils! I miss my old concepts dome on paper, so I found a few of them and decided to add them here, hope these are ok, done a long time ago when I was creating stuff like crazy, now I'm pushing myself more towards colored stuff. I plan to paintover them soon I hope
