this is my first artwork posting here on conceptart.org I've posted on deviant art mostly-but seems there's more pros here than there.
anyways I'll talk less and post more
critiques welcome always!
description--was my first drawing/painting after opening up my 21wsx cintiq tablet a couple months back---man I love that thing!!!

haha, I love the contrast head/space suit. Awesome man! Hope to see you start a sketchbook here! only thing that bugs me is *his right hand gripping the gun, thought it looked kinda funny

ya for sure
there's actually lots that bugs me about it...like one foot is so much bigger than the other...that hand that you mentioned...the entire background...i could go on and on but then i'll just ruin the image entirely hahhaha
i'll start a sketchbook as soon as i scan all those dang things
appreciate the feedback!
Thats pretty cool!!
Life is a long lesson in humility.
Frickin' great... I wish the level of detail on the figure was more consistent from head 2 toe but it's a really fun, imaginative and dynamic piece regardless.

Thats an awesome peice of work. Love the detail on the head (reminds me of a stonefish) and movement of the suit. Very cool. Very inspiring!
awesome stance and dynamics kapt, your gallery's fun to watch as well
Awesome stuff, It looks like you've put a abyssal fish on a cartoon body.
I truly love.
really awesome stuff! nice !but only little bit crit is:I think you take too much detail on the head of that creature,so what about the body detail? add some I think it wo be perfect!
living like cartoon ,money like water!
nice amusing concept to start of the day. thats a really good concept, no crit really, especially like the detail on the guys face.
That thing is freaky!
Awesome though, good imagination.
At first i didn't think he was holding a gun, i thought it was his tentacles. But then realised it has a red laser beam coming out. Heh. Don't know why i thought it was tentacles T_T

Hey, I am having troubles with my new Cintiq 21 UX, ever since I got it has been scratching hardcore, there are currently scratches all over the surface.
i only touch 3 things on it:
the pen (not sharpened by me into a spear or anything)
a glove (not a spiked biker glove)
a towel (not made of broken glass)
there are scratches all over, i got 2 damamged pixels, and one pixel sized piece of dirt under the screen. I got pissed today and send em email for an RMA.
please tell me if you got any scratches, or pixel problems in a PM.
great painting, the facial design is really interesting. i feel that the body doesnt live up to it entirely though.

Yeah I'm trying to decide whether I'll be getting a Cintiq in the next few months... should I spring for the huge one or stick to the 12 inch? I feel like 12 Inch would be sufficient for me, but I dunno...
Excellent painting, really. Very interesting, very engaging, though I'd like to see a bit more continuity between the head and the rest of the body in terms of level of detail.
What are the strongest aspects of the Cintiq? I don't mean what can it do, cuz I've read all about it, but what about it makes it most valuable to YOU?
thnx for lookin'
to answer your question: I value not having to scan things the MOST...not sure why but I loathe that process hahaha...I like being able to start sketching on the tablet and going straight to tonals or even colouring if I so choose---I LOVE THIS about the cintiq...its like having my sketchbook-AND markers to tone or Paints to colour it! with no mess---ya you can do the same by drawing something with the wacom tablet-i started with that--actually with the old school giant wacom tablet-then graphire-then intuos 3-but always felt some type of disconnect with the work--I love the process of drawing with pen to paper---with my head down and nose right in it...i love that the cintiq rotates like paper on a desk or like an animation disc and I love that I can put a ruler up to it and trace off a line if i wanted to---I love that its a second monitor for me-with my reference or anything I want in the other screen---Also I was very VERY concerned with the worry of lag between the pen and the screen before trying it-but I only notice the VERY slight lag if I'm really lookin' for it. I imagine with a faster processor or more RAM it would be completely eliminated-but like I said-not even a small concern at all after using it
I feel like I've rambled on-hope it makes sense
maybe we should start a thread somewhere about the cintiq tablets if one doesnt already exist?
ps thnx! agreed about the detailing balancing as mentioned above...haha

great job! love it

I think the head's great, but think the outfit's a bit too smooth of a contrast. I'd even say you can keep the outfit, as long as you "grunge" it up a bit, put some dirt on it or something.
