    Seeing how his eyes are apparently on fire, I'll guess self-portrait.

    Yeah, I'd say you did. The background is stark white and his fucking eyes are on fire.

    It's supposed to be cable, anyway. You left his name in the filename of the picture, you idiot.

    Just do me a favor and stuff the cookie into your ass.

    Hey, if he'd been lurking he'd know it was flame week. And if he made the post with the purpose of getting flamed, then he should be honored that I took the time to flame him.

    Now if he hadn't been lurking and didn't know it was flame week, oh man he's probably crying right now!

    You're kidding me. I mean, beyond the fact that the quality of the drawing itself is poor in general, (and the fact that the guy who thought up Cable wasn't too hot at it either), I was under the impression that Cable was a huge, Ford F450 of a man. This guy looks like his morning routine involves riding his recumbent bike down to the Jamba Juice before heading to his class on modern dance.

    And why is he looking 180 degrees away from where his gun is pointing.

    AND WHAT'S WITH THE SMARMY SMILE.




    In the somewhat off-chance this is not a joke, you really should walk away from photoshop and learn how to draw with a pencil first.

    You'd probably do best to get a mod to delete or move this post. :/

    You'll only get flames.



    But yes, my suggestion: Learn to draw basic anatomy first ~ <3

    I suppose out of interest of not destroying this young man's soul entirely, I should ask how old he is.

    Young man (I am assuming you are both young, and a man), how old are you? And how much work are you willing to put in to improving your drawing skills?

    Because solid, general advice can be given if you want it, and if you put a lot of effort into following it you can get a hell of a lot better. However, there is not much here in this piece to say in terms of honest straightforward criticism, other than you don't seem to know a lot about drawing, and should be seeking to educate yourself in a general sense about how to draw via books and tutorials, and sweat and blood.

    Wow, you just got CS2? What retailer did you pick it up from because they saw you coming.

    And I'm assuming it's not a joke thread since there hasn't been any smarmy ripostes coming from the OP yet.

    If thats meant to be cable it needs about 60 more pouches and probably 5 more belts.

    I guess Cable's just plain hard to draw, because the legs in the above image are off, too.

    One last comment before this thread gets locked:

    That kid gets Photoshop CS2, and I'm stuck with dang ol' Photoshop 7. I bet he has a nicer computer, too.
