that first picture in the OP is really awesome. if Indie Rock was pictures instead of music, that's what it would be.

Your art has that 'new wave' style to it.
The kind you see on all those band-t shirts, and what not.
I can't say I don't like it.

I like this all but the blue dude, and all the lines flying in to his mouth. i just think the colours distract you to much and are out of place. also i think he is the worst drawn one out off all of them.

Good shit, man. You got a solid style.

I don't wanna be a party pooper. But I'd like to see you draw something real. I mean, you can cartoon, sure. And it's great--liking your style a lot--but it's also very forgiving. And I don't mean "real" as in life studies and that bullshit. Those are boring. I just want to see you draw like...a dude...smoking a spliff...sitting on a horse. As realistic as you can without the use of references.

Because I mean, we gotta create standards amirite? Cartooning is just about 100% limitless. I wanna see you draw within some confines and rules. It's the only way to assess if you have a good foot in traditional aspects of art. You def' got the cartooning stuff down, though.

I honestly can't say I would do very good at that, it wouldn't be terrible, but it certainly wouldn't be anything fantastic. Although, I've never actually really tried it, I suppose I could give it a go.

I don't want to sound too defensive (no doubt I will) but you can't just say that cartooning doesn't have any rules, perspective comes into play (although I'm certainly bad at displaying that right now) anatomy comes into play (which I'd like to think I'm getting better at) and of course color theory is a big part of cartooning.

So I'll give a try on something realistic, but I'm not too excited about the prospect of it, I like to be psychedelic and such because I find real life to be a bit boring, I mean, not that I can't appreciate The Mona Lisa or anything, it's just that I find the idea of drawing from life a tad silly when you could draw from your head, let people see what's going on in there.

Note: Obviously drawing from life improves your skills in art TREMENDOUSLY, I'm not bashing it, I just don't choose to do it often, and I love portraits, self portraits, still life, all that.

Ah, but see. Isn't it at the liberty of the artist to say it's "just a style"? As in, if your anatomy is bad, you could say it's just a style choice. I've encountered that a lot on NG. I'm not saying you do it, or that you would do it. But that's a downfall of many cartoon artists. They get too comfortable with their liberties.

And no, no, I'm not talking about portraits, still lifes--I meant no drawing from reference. It's basically like: "how well do I understand reality in art?"

Because I mean, draw from reference is a good learning method, but should never be the standard practice. Because that, too, is another thing a lot of artists indulge in. And then when you give them a blank piece of paper and say "draw something", they come up short.

And hey, you don't have to do it if you're not comfortable with it. I'm just saying, it'd be nice to see.

Yeah no I completely agree, I hate people who say "well that's just my style" I for one take full responsability when it comes to my fuck ups in art (I tend not to go back to fix them I hate working on something longer than I intended, I just make sure to fix whatever I did wrong in my next drawing)

For example, I fucked up gluttony's right horn, which, while I was intending to make it shorter, it still looks fucked up due to lack of perspective, his (stage right) breast doesn't look like it's coming into contact with his arm (probably because I drew a different arm pose after the fact) but the list goes on and on.

I can already tell after having roamed the art forum for a short amount of time that a lot of people here are incredibly defensive of their "art" and couldn't be comfortable with criticism if they tried.

On another note, there may be a misunderstanding here but I don't draw from reference, and If I do, I try and draw the same thing later on another piece of paper, to see how well I understood what I had drawn.

Reference does help incredibly though, but I agree, it shouldn't be used as a crutch, then it just comes off as hashed and unoriginal, and the only ideas you're left with are something from an image on a computer screen.

Hey guys, I'm workin' on a zine right now called "the depressing case of jeremy grandorff" it's got some nice pictures and some introverted angsty sayings and monologues, it'll be about 45 pages and i'll be sellin 'em for 3 bucks each once i'm done, i know this is a shameless plug, but I need the money for art supplies.

When I have the time to scan the front page I'll make sure to put it here c:
