    Post #189 is just outa here... fantastic work on it, very readable and pure eyecandy. Don't see anything specific to crit, just one suggestion prehaps: flipping the piece horizontally. I think it'll improve how the piece reads: It'll place the bad guys on the right, specifically bossbadguy in the upper right, which is the most 'powerful' place in a composition. It'll place the good dudes in the lower left, which usually signifies lack of power or defeat. That way, it's visually more obvious that the bad guys are exerting power over the good dudes.

    But that's just something minor, and looking at the trouble and care that went into this painting it seems that you likely have your reasons for composing it like this.

    Any case - wonderful book, have 5!

    your characters are getting way better man. Are you going to render them out? I think you should man! Just remember different textures that are on the figures. Now I must go practice what i preach. Much Love Brotha!

    GaHWd, because of you I've been holding this load of crap in for the past half hour, uhg... lol. Amazing A+ work dude, especially the casts, I'm very impressed by the way you captured all the subtle highlights and even the surface textures. I try and try and I could never accomplish that!

    Regarding that Illustration, one thing I noticed as I went through the WIP is that you lost more and more of the initial impact, spacial depth and narrative as you progressed. For me, this stage was the strongest. The architecture made more sense in relation to the characters, there was a better sense of depth, and the character arrangement was more interesting and dynamic. One of the things you also gave up in the final version is the pyramid in the background, which I feel is important in the visual composition. You seem to also have jacked up the exposure around heads, which is... I mean, you can do it, but it has to be done reealy well, otherwise it's actually counter-productive . I think you could call it quits now, just by cleaning up around the edges a bit. But I would really encourage that look back at your original sketches and ideas to see what you improved on, what you changed and what you lost from start the finish.

    Totally amazing sketchbook.

    I am literally gaping at the screen in amazment.

    Please, oh wise one, tell us more about your technique. If you could possibly be bothered to write down your work process step by step on those marvelous graphite and charcoal(?) drawings.

    How the hell did you do that?
