nnatsu - Thank you! Working on some more line art at the moment. Keep on drawing!
Rostas - Thanks. Yeah I'm leaning towards Blue myself. The Band are kind of aggressive Punk Rock - In terms of 'tone' I kind of think the red works better but I just generally prefer the Blue version.
when choosing a colour i generally go to color theory and what colour relates to which emotion if its a punk band id lean towards the read but the blue goes better with black which is why you feel that blue looks better, remember tho your efforts should go into telling a message and communicating something to the audience blue is a more thoughtful colour and its known for creating deep emotions, read a bit on the subject and you will be amazed on what you can accomplish with colour theory alone, one more thing you are a render GIANT man your clean lines are something to take note of! what did you do to get to that point? amazing ammounts of practice? i recently lost quite a bit of ability and im using still lifes to get back in the game but i get frustrated because i cant get to my standard of quality or rather the quality i used to make, i loved that progress gif id love to see more, if i could critic you one thing it would be composition and message try to tell more with less GREAT stuff man GREAT!
I really love your style of lineart. It's really clean and detailed. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work.
lionheartGFX - Yeah Thanks. I know exactly what you mean. I feel the same way just sometimes there's a bit of a rift between what suits the brief best and what actually looks strongest. I went with Blue in the end.
vincentvangeel - Thanks man, working on more at the moment.

I'm loving your line work, bro!
The 'portrait' in post #167 is just stunning; the colors are so rich with the blues in the mustache and the reds in the skin tones.
You draw really beautiful things, i like your plastic of lines, it's what i cna't get in my works. All my lines are straight and poor on details and they didn't reflext materials. It's a lot of practice to get such line control?
Ok so over the past few weeks I have been developing an idea for my first attempt at a Graphic Novel.
(It's a dark noir-ish 'space-opera' but with some quite unusual influences.)
I am going quite ambitious with this. Doing both the writing and artwork.
Anyways here is a WIP of some promotional artwork I have been working on...
WarmSoda - Thanks Dude!
n1frit - Thanks! Yes just lots of repitition. I'm a big believer in the whole (at least) 10,000 hrs to master any one skill theory. It's a whole different kettle of fish adapting to using a Wacom for linework. Still trying to get better.
SgtBubbles - No problem, Thanks for the nice comments.
ChisLu- Thank you.
kevin Thanks, got a whole heap of linework on the way.
I love your stuff. Your Portraits are amazing and impressing. Keep up uploading!
Beautiful and impressive!
Thanks greggo23, mike butkis and rupuni!
Ok so I haven't posted in here for a few months because.. I WENT PRO!
(may have been working on a certain Disney/Marvel project.)
Anyways I've got back to working on my graphic novel. Here's some linework for another character...

hell yea! great work man! congrats on the marvel job! cant wait to see the goodies from that job! good luck on the graphic novel! that's actually a huge goal of mine as well, writing it, drawing it, painting it, every single panel. that's a huge dream, and probably my ultimate end goal. Terada Katsuya was a huge influence for me, he did a monkey king graphic novel all on his own. and it is pure gold. its called "the journey to the west." if you have never seen it id highly recommend it well, good luck! and keep us posted! ill definitely get a copy!
wow look very cool learning
Gorgeous work here! I'm in love with your lines
