    what would people choose for me?

    Yeah, I don't even think I'll have the time/energy to participate, but I'm tempted just on the grounds of seeing what someone would pick for me.

    This is a pretty cool idea. I'd like to hop on the band wagon.

    Oh, and I like how a narcissistic curiosity is what drives people to enter this competition hah! This is glorious.

    @Fugitive
    Oh you are so in, just do a 5 minute sketch.

    Grifter.... I sorta dont remember what your work looks like. I actually think you stopped really posting art around the time I was posting regularly.

    yeah dudes, dont just dump all the work on Iruka, if you are all participating, take 15 minutes, watch the artchive or older threads and do recomend stuff for others too, dont just wait for others to come nurse your egos while you sip a piña colada IN YOUR COMFORT ZONE

    Alright, deal. my ego really was enjoying that piña colada though...

    @Scadilla your stuff is always so clean (bold lines) and masculine, how about this which seems sketchy and feminine

    i guess i'll try a shitty wolf person. i will feel dirty doing it.


    1) As a small side note, one day, I really hope to be King Penis of Fuck Mountain.

    2) No shitty anime or wolf-people, take that crap to deviant art

    Uhhhhhh NO. The day I let you join is the day my username spells "m3nace"... oh
    Of course you can! But we're still lacking in the suggestion department folks!
    The people needing suggestions are:
    Grifter
    nakirush
    Pierceneck
    Mes3
    Cyber could use one more suggestion (we should aim for at least two suggestions I think)
    and of course squidbunny too

    I would make suggestions, but I don't really know much about other artists. Which is why I hate talking to people taking art classes, because they're like "Oh you like to draw? Blah blah blah blah!" about a bunch of artists I don't know.

    check peoples blogs, pages, deviant art links or the PA:AC Artchive, theres no need to start a 2 hours debate with each person, just a 10 min. look at the links that everyone makes available at their signatures. Then just google image for obvious searches like "complex ilustration", or "painting saturated colours", or "op art", or whatever you think the other forumer is missing. I understand you because other than Andy Warhol, I pretty much dont know any other names, so I did what I say a couple of lines above, I search for the result, not the artist name. Then I had to rehost the images I found because I couldnt direct link them.

    On a diferent subject, the picture I am making has nipples, an the innuendo of a vagina (not a proper one), should I spoil(er) the image, ask for a NSFW tag on the thread? Its not pornographic or anything, I would say its SUPER mild, but Id rather ask first.

    Like Pierce, I don't feel super qualified to recommend. Certainly not like Iruka (man, 'ruka; you're drawing on an impressive stable of dudes -- you must browse more than I do. Good on you.).

    For Naki maybe something with a super saturated palette and the shapes/movement really pushed & exaggerated:
    Erm. For Pierce ... maybe ... something softly rendered without a lot of reliance on lineart? Bonus points if the subject is cute and snuggly. Don't think I've seen you do that. :)
    Hmmm. I don't think I'm gonna have time to render something like Adi Granov (not suggesting I could get the same kind of results if I did)....

    I threw that in because it was either Granov or Alex Ross : )

    Scott Pilgrim was the "I can make the deadline" choice, and Lewis just has such a weird perspective on things. It's like I want to HATE his artwork, but it draws you in and despite being all over the place you can find, instantly, whatever detail you're looking for, subconsciously or not.

    Here's what I do...

    Cute and snuggly things are my worst fear.

  • IrukaIruka Registered User, Super Moderator, Moderator mod
    Squid, between tumblr and DA, art really just gets thrown at me. I did one day decide that I should watch more people on DA than watch me, only got to 500 when it should of been 1000, but I still get a lot of art everyday.

    Paul Pope. Thick, solid, flowing lines with every shape's form ultimately determined by motion.
    Spoiler:
    Mike Mignola. Solid figures, shapes that aren't as simple as they appear, and huge dark/light contrast. Almost like he chisels his art out of the page.

    If we get a bunch of suggestions with common threads is it kosher to try reconciling/combining or do we really want to stick to emulating one specific artist?

    I guess it would be ok if you had more artists represented in one work. You could also just make several minor works instead for each artist if you feel like trying it all out. Seeing as you're used to make comics already, why not try and make an n-paneled comic representing n artists each?
    also @Grifter could you link us to some more recent work of yours?

    Allright, apparently theres only terrible stuff outside my comfort zone, so I give up after after several days of smashing my head against this tablet. This is the sketch that evolved the most, and that I hate a little bit less than the ones I scrapped.

    I liked your paneling idea, m3nace, but I got no tiiiiime so I just did one. I figured I could do something Mignola-esque in pretty short order and he seems to embody a fair amount of traits common to a bunch of the suggestions (clean black lineart, use of blacks for shadows, etc). Unfortunately when I was 3/4 done with this I realized Spex suggested Mignola and I don't even think the filthy cad is in the challenge and therefore his suggestions don't count and I have disqualified myself. Oh well. This was fun to make.

    Nah you're not disqualified.

    No that's just mean. But seriously I'd pick something for Spex kind of like I did for Pierce: soft, painterly rendering with less lineart dependency. Maybe more like our mutual pal emoxic:

    Whatever it is it has to have a background. (Gahahaha.)
