    ~Justin's fancypants finished thread~

    Alright.. it's summer, I am finally out of high school, and I'm off work til Tuesday... I have already set to work, as is obvious by this thread. I will keep adding to it as I finish pieces this summer =)

    Some are older (Marco polo), and some will be a bit less polished (like the cliffs), but I'll do my best to keep it FF quality!!

    Thanks for lookin!

    Ok here we go again (my connection bugged out my last post).

    Nice to see your work here in FF. It does qualify, don't worry! Like to see the progress you've made. It's been a long while since your first posts . You got really strong sense of shape and poses works great!

    If I were to crit your stuff. I'd say first picture seems a bit overworked. Try giving it more spontaneus strokes. It looks as if you've spent time smudging and zooming too much.

    The second and third has some colour and composition issues. Placing the character exactly in the center might be informative but a tad boring, but that doesn't bother me that much. I miss some additional colours. Right now you've decided his cape should be red, so you've painted it different values except for the part where the light hits it. I'm not sure but I think "hue" is the word, try to find different variations of red or even some other colours.

    The last one has really nice colours, but my eyes get very distracted by the dark sided wall. I'd say move the whole picture a few snaps to the left (as if we were looking at another angle) having less of the dark area in the picture.

    Yaya, hope you can make something out of my comment. My language isn't the best.

    .cheers

    hehe damn dude, after seeing these I really had to go to your sketchbook to check if I didn't mix up your nickname with somebody else's but no I didn't! The quality of this stuff is really so many levels higher than your sketchbookworks.
    Really great jobs on all of them, I really dig the first character!
    One crit about the folds in the jacket and the belt of the first painting: each of the fold looks the same only differing in size, try to avoid this "pattern-like" look.

    nevertheless, as already said, great work and stars for you, mate

    Thanks MorteM =) Your english is fine. I respect any bilingual person. 3 year of spanish and I can't even speak a third of the language.

    Gloomi That's good. The fold thing; I guess it's what happens without reference... Probably my worst habit is working without any ref more often than not =( But thanks! Advice dually noted!



    Ugh... Crappy color version. I've never done it this way before, but it's alot faster and easier than using value and color together. It saves alot of hassle.
    This version doesn't carry the same 'charm' I think as the greyscale one. =\

    Good stuff guy! I think on the colored version you need to introduce other colors to your local colors,maybe? What i mean is your greens seem to green hopefully you understand what I'm saying. Hopefully i didn't confuse the hell out of you...... I'll shut now.

    I've decided after many failed attempts that I am better at working straight in color than going the B/W direction.

    Here is the more polished b/w version of the warrior, and another attempt at an enviro... plus some t-shirt design for Unetee.com... the way things are looking I have an almost good chance of it getting printed!

    great stuff man, your colours are getting better! I love the pattern on the neckguard-thing on the dude with the baggy pants, as weird as this sounds, it actually inspired me to go draw the other day when I saw it

    keep it up bro
