    It's really hard to tell what's going on in either of them, though the 2nd one seems a bit easier to figure out. Still, it only seems like you've layered shapes on top of eachother kind of randomly...if you took the very top section away (the part that actually looks like a building with trees), I'm not sure what purpose or function the rest of the enviro would have.

    Thanks for the critique ND. The lack of variety in my marker sketches is making it hard for me to put in any definition. I should have decided on some functionality ideas. I will put some more thought into the next ones to communicate the idea better.

    edit: btw these are random shapes on top of each other randomly.I've been trying to pull stuff out of random marker scribbles.

    I gave myself a 1 hour time limit from marker sketch.

    Im impressed by the texture in the first one. You got that from markers? It looks like paint.

    Copics on marker paper. Then scanned and overlayed with adjustments in photoshop.

    I am not with out critique, These lack depth mainly due to a extremely grey value structure. Just keep in mind Higher contrast pushes to the front and lower will recede.

    Like this last one. Ive done a quick value adjustment to illustrate my point.

    I did this at work so I did not have a tablet to make the selections clean but I think this shows what im talking about.
    Bout a 30 second adjustment.

    Keyed up the saturation a bit of foreground objects and increased their contrast between the lighter and dark values.

    To push things back did the opposite.

    Also what helps to establish depth is to overlap foreground and background elements. when you paint or draw the foreground object its edge will sit on top of the background object helping to push it back. Hence the old paint back to front advice.

    I wish i had the balls to use markers, the fact that i cant erase mistakes scares the crap out of me. Any suggestions on getting past this? or should i just buck up and dive in

    I had the same feeling with pen and ink; aside from the fact that you'll never learn without accepting that it might suck before you get the feel of it, pen and marker are good ways of building confidence in your strokes, and in developing a greater fluidity.

    Try putting your donger in a dishwasher and see how that comes out.

    Not being able to erase a mistake on a quick drawing can help you spot repeated ones. Draw permanent..teaches confidence.

    Your welcome

    Now if you are being sarcastic...


    In regards to my thrid comment ,I was just joining the conversation initiated by obliex. I think you took that the wrong way. I guess I should have just private messaged him instead of derailing your thread.


    Unless you are referring to the second post I made in this thread. In that case you can kindly go and fuck yourself and I will keep my opinions to myself from now on regarding your work.
    If you arent being sarcastic.. then ignore this.
