These were done for my final school project in art class. I started a bit late, so I had to stay up all night to finish them.

Talk about these things and give me tips or compliments or whatever I don't really care anymore because I am so tired I could just die.

Spectre-x on

    A little more effort should have been put into the text. It appears as though it were scribbled on as an afterthought. Are these original art pieces or copies from a comic?

    I agree, also, about the contrast.

    Now that I'm somewhat more well-rested, I can give some more explanation.

    I did this for my final school art project. The text comes from The Scourge of the Fourth Celestial Host by Bal-Sagoth, which is a song about the Silver Surfer. The photos sort of messed up the colours, they contrast more in real life.

    And they're not robots, they're [URL="http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celestials"]Celestials[/URL].

    I still think you could do with some more weight on your inks, Speccy.

    watercolors can be tricky. you only seemed to use one color in one area at a time....so you could have colored this with anything, pencil, marker, paint, muppet semen...and gotten the same effect.
    without tooting my own horn too much check out my thread, and see how watercolor can work in a comic type sense.

    It may be 'awesome' to you, but the washes look like bad Crayola markers to me. May I suggest coloring in the same direction with your brush. For example first photo, first frame with SS saying 'Zenn-la!':

    The washes behind him look blotchy and in every which direction. Strokes in the same direction would have been much better.

    This whole thing looked rushed, the boxes are uneven, some of the colors are smudged. I think this would have been a whole lot better if more care had been taken with its craftsmanship. The line work on most of it is beautifully done (Galactus in the first picture, the celestials in the second, especially the one to the left Even though these are well done parts, the few poorly done parts (the text in particular) really take away from it as a whole.

    Absolutely none of them.

    Also fuck you.

    Don't accuse someone of copying panels out of a comic book you jackass. Especially not Spex, since he has made a whole tonne of comics and each of them are awesome and original.

    On the art: I like the watercolours for the most part. On the second page, it looks like you used a frizzy brush on the sky or something and it makes it look a bit ugly in comparison to the smooth colours on the characters.

    Have you used watercolours much before? Cos I'd totally like to see more of them from you.

    Also, what size paper did you do these on? I'm guessing A3 size?

    I think it's a non-standard paper size, but it's a fair bit larger than A3. Less than A2, though.

    Toward the end of the whole thing, I'd completely destroyed the brush I was using.

    I haven't really used watercolours a lot, and I'm trying to remedy that.

    What the fuck? What is the meaning of this? Why would you come out of left field with such a lame accusation? Uncool.

    In other news, I like them Spex. I'm happy to see you ink and color anything, even if your brush was going to hell. :^: And they probably look a lot better in person where the glare from the camera flash isn't washing out your inks and I don't have to scroll 6000 miles to the right to see the whole thing. Agree though that the lettering isn't really on par with the art; it's a little shaky and gets pretty lost in places.
