    1105: Weird: BARNACLE-MAN IS COVERED WITH JOINTED BONY PLATES AND PINKISH GILLS

    [ He's not actually human, so feel free to keep it only vaguely human in shape. ]

    [ Barnacles are rather creepy, so I expect Barnacle-Man will be rather creepy, too. ]

    [ By "gills" I don't mean like a fish's gills... ]

    [ ...I mean more like blobby tubes in the recesses of the plating, perhaps with feathery extensions... ]

    [ Something in that vein. ]

    [ If you're happier with Tech stuff, and this sounds too organic, just think of it as a highly-textured, jointed body-armour with weird red-pink tubing and rubber and lacking flashing lights. ]

    [ If you can't help yourself, and have to put a bit of a weathered i.d. number on the chest... So be it. ]

    Well, here is my take on this topic… I wanted to try some colors, so this is done in… mmm… cake chalk?... Just kidding, I don’t know how this are called in English, in Spanish they are “tizas pastel”. Over this color base I worked with charcoal, just to keep practicing with this material… Took me about an hour and a half.

    Ruling with an iron fist, Barnacle man is the mid-boss of the tidal pools, and has to answer only to octopus guy.

    Grembloh - I really like your colors on the second one!

    I'm not really happy with how this turned out. Maybe I need to
    work on my technique a bit. I dunno, any suggestions?

    airrunkle.. thank you. Got me inspired to do one more. So I tried to combine them. by the way.. whats he doing... why 's he stuck with his hand if he's eating?
    machzero: I like the rough structure on the .. things.. head. Seems you have made the focus important, mayby the thing will look even better in sharper focus.
    Aga: cool environment! and nice expression, he really looks miserable.

    some crits if you don't mind...

    grembloh: wow, very productive! Your 1st has a slightly wonky anatomy, I am sure you know it yourself. I am not the guy to crit about anatomy anyway
    2nd and 3rd are both very nice! Good colours and design!

    Machzero: values work well! Colours are fitting. Also the design has it's strength. Good to see you practising with colours! You should definitely use more hard-edged brushes, though and put emphasis on every stroke.
    Some texture brushes would be cool also

    Hamsta (the DSG veteran):
    coming along nicely. Good concept! You should really start to put in sharper details though! Get the small brushes now!

    Aga: good concept, nice angle. But those scribbly brushes kill the feel of depth. Could use some athmospheric perspective... (assuming he is in the water)

    airrunkle: that's a good one! Values work well! You should put more thought into your actual drawing technique. Give the lines some dynamic as I said earlier above. Some well-defined design elements would work wonders I think!

    mrdigs: cool concept, I like it!

    hazzard and crustacean: creative designs as well!

    Chai: try to break up the soft brushes with carefully places hard-edged design elements, it looks just too soft right now. Add texture, boost up the contrast and have some colour variation. Water definitely needs more depth also.
    Welcome to the DSG!
    I hope I didn't offend you, just wanted to help!
