    That looks nice, I really like the muted color and mood of it. I feel like she needs her torso more though. That arm doesn't have anything bound to it without the torso, so its kinda of visually strange.

    good work though, oil or chalk pastels?

    Yeah, having done more of the torso would have been good - but at some point I decided to up the challenge and went for the head instead :)

    As for the pastels, I believe that they are chalk - it's a Faber Castel soft pastels blue box.

    Hey all. I'm not an illustrator or anything. I'm more well suited to making pictures move than keeping them still. Here goes...

    I plan to go back in and change some things, notably the unpainted chain on his skirt/robe thingy the highlights at the bottom of his torso/close to his pelvis, and the orange marks on his left pauldron. They're getting kind of messy and irrelevant.

    And yes, I will listen to crits and comments.

    I'm super terrible with anatomy, so maybe I'm wrong, but the lower legs look way too short. And the shin guards look like they'd impale his feet every time he tried to walk.

    I make bugs sometimes (actually this stuff is over two years old).

    Too big?

    And this week. (Something's messed up with the elbow, and her behind wasn't quite that large). It's funny the ammount of problems that you only see after you stop looking at your drawing for a while.

    Hello AC, I lurk here some times.

    This is something I made for class, we were grouped together and had to think up a game design concept. It was a weird assignment because I attend a technical university (engineering). We invented Carmageddon but called it something else. The top one is the front page we had for our powerpoint presentation, the two others illustrate how the hypothetical players would be able to customize their hypothetical cars.
    Spoiler:

    This is a sculpture that I did the 3D design for, based on a 2d sketch, then some skilled people assembled it. The picture is from my trip when I went to look at it for the first time. Also in this image: me (to the right). It is made up of about 16k tiny plastic cubes.

    The jaw line shouldn't go that far over given the position of the head. Try putting the jaw line going up a little after or before the neck line on the right. Otherwise pretty danged cute drawing.

    I've been lurking for a long while, and then this thread came up, and I lurked even more...but no longer! I have a bit of low self-esteem about my drawings because I feel like I'm never "finished." And I'm in art school, so I'm always doing "homework" art. But here is some older stuff of mine.

    A line drawing(nsfw):

    The right leg (our left) of that comic-booky one is way too short. I think you were going for some foreshortening but then the angle is wrong and the boot/ rest of the leg doesn't get big enough to appear like its being foreshortened.

    Other than that (and getting darker darks in the photo reference) you've got a pretty slick and refined style.

    Yeah, I see the problem with the foreshortening there. (And my professors are always riding me about darker darks.) Thanks a lot!

    I haven't really been lurking per say, but I haven't posted any of my own work either.

    I got really bored yesterday and drew a quick sketch of Hobbes from the cover of There's Treasure Everywhere, and then I got even move bored and semi finished it. I wrapped it in spoiler tags because it's fairly wide.

    Really nice recreation of the Watterson style. Good colors too.

    Things to be cautious of: Line width variation and flatness.

    Every line has a purpose, and the thickness and degree that it tapers off are parts of what makes them so important. For example, the shovel and caked on dirt have mega skinny lines even though they are in front of everything else in the image, Those bushes in the way back have super duty thick lines and attract the eye immediately into the background when they shouldn't be.

    Also for the flatness, some of the problem areas are Calvin's shirt sleeves and the bushes and trees. Try to think of shapes more 3 dimensionally and the space they take up. Also the way you shade them can create the illusion of shape also. Hobbes looks pretty excellent in this regard. Keep up the good work and I hope that helped!

    He's Kairos - the ancient Greek God of Opportunity. And punk rock haircuts. (I drew it for a friend who really likes Madeleine L'Engle; she wrote about Kairos as a philosophical concept in a series of books of the same name.)

    Nice work harryk, I like the dudes doing the camel dance.
    Hokusai's wave also feels very nice, making it dark kinda makes it feel more stormy and chaotic.
