From my adult webcomic on Drunk Duck.com. Feel free to talk about it. I'm using CS5 right now. This was just a test run.

Enjoy! If you are offended by nudity...I'm not sure what to tell you. I did put NSFW in the title. Hopefuly this isn't too much.

    This is the image I worked over the summer. It's very much inspired by Anime and Video Games.

    It's called Final Battle.

    You don't have to make separate threads for each piece you want to post. It's actually a good idea to keep your art in one thread, so we can give you more accurate critiques about your art.

    I see you've posted here before...

    ...are you looking for feedback on how to improve? Because it doesn't look like you spent much time on anything you've posted so far. I think it would help you a lot if you just slowed down a bit, and took more time on each part of your drawings.

    If you're not looking for very involved critiques, you may just want to post in the Doodle thread...but if you are looking for those kind of critiques, we're probably going to suggest a lot to you! It's all to try and help you improve, though.

    If you want you. I've been on this site before...but my first experience was a bit rough. They suggest alot of books. Stuff that I've read before like Will Eisner and Scott Mccloud. Maybe I need a strong drink first before posting stuff here?

    I'll live, go ahead.

    There's not much point in making a thread if you don't truly wish to improve based off of honest critique.

    Like ND said, maybe the doodle thread is more of what you're looking for.

    Night dragon, I said go ahead and give me some advice.

    CapnMango: You are just making assumptions out of thin air. I do want to learn.

    its really sloppy, i think you've got the right idea but it looks rushed to me. im exactly sure what kind of advice you're looking for, but my only suggestions are to draw a lot more before coloring in photoshop, or if you want to get better at coloring i'd suggest coloring other people's drawings. good art takes time and lots and lots of practice. eveyone has potential, it just takes a lot of throwaway drawings before you get there

    based on that you just want to make a webcomic, where anatomy and art aren't that important, you've got the right idea, but like someone else said, spend a bit more time working on your stuff

    hope i can be of help

    If you considered your last thread as rough, then I naturally assume that you will feel the same way about what could follow. I read the thread, and they seemed to go rather gently on you, and offered good suggestions. Reading books is an important part of becoming a good artist; which is exactly why they recommended that you do so.

    There are no shortcuts to becoming a well-developed artist. I wish there were. But instead we all have to learn by listening to advice, practicing (and practicing and practicing), and....reading books.

    EDIT: Also, do you have a tablet? It's damned near impossible to get good results digitally without one. Wacom is the best brand for these devices, and they have a wide range of sizes.

    I read what you said! But unlike in real life, where I can reply immediately, sometimes I walk away from the computer to do other things, and other forumers have to wait until I can return to read their post and then reply to it! :)

    If you want the honest truth, it looks like you didn't put much thought into any of this. It looks really thrown together randomly and sloppily, and a lot of the parts get muddy and are hard to decipher (area around the sword and castle being a good example).

    Do you make a line drawing and then color it? There are a couple of areas that aren't even lined...again, the entire piece just looks very haphazard. How long did you spend on it? I think that it would help hugely to you if, like I said earlier, you just spent more time on each piece, and really planned things out beforehand. Here, it looks like you may've had a loose idea formed, and quickly drew your idea. A good piece of art involves a lot of thinking...and in many cases, a lot of time taken to think before you make the next mark. The idea of the piece as a whole doesn't have to be completely formed before you start, but it helps to think in a more structured pattern.

    Maybe if you try sketching first, and taking a lot of time to make things more accurate (and if you're not sure, get some photo reference from Google, your backyard, where-ever you can get it from)...and then move on to linework, and then move on to color. You can focus on each task individually and try to make each the best it can be, at each stage. This would also help you to slow down your process.

    If you want this to look better, it needs to be better planned and executed.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    [edit] and as far as reading the books goes....."Reading" the books and "skimming" the books and "browsing" the material is one thing.....but actually absorbing and understanding and utilizing the information is something completely different. You may have read the books - you may have even read them or looked through them multiple times. But unless you're actually absorbing/understanding and using the information to your advantage, reading the book is doing absolutely nothing to help you improve.
