Hey, this is a topic to look at some of the visual art I've created and to give me criticism, tips, feedback, flames, compliments etc.

I tend to only draw surreal or disturbing images, and it almost always comes from spontaneous thoughts.

Music I listen while drawing is usually Smashing Pumpkins, Modest Mouse, or ambient tracks such as those by Doki (aka. David Firth).

Well to start off, here is something I completed just then. I don't normally draw people and scenes like this, so it was a first for me. The character in the picture is from a floating island suspended amidst a seemingly infinite expanse of blue clouds/nebulae. He is made of chalk, and pondering about the universe outside his world.

The first drawing I did where I tried to get realistic lighting/colour on a character. I think it turned out okay.

very cool, I like you style. Maybe you should try making your peices a bit more detailed or intricate, even if its one little aspect of it like another character. The way you shade the colours is pretty cool, im only just learning how to use colour.

I guess it's time to post another. This was my submission for the Perfect Pet contest. I wrote a big ass description for it, it's on this page, somewhere in between an insane chainsaw murderer squirrel and a robot lizard thing.

This originally started out as a sketch but I added the background colour and goo and box thing.

One of the first things I made with my tablet, when I was too nervous to use colours. He's called turnip head and hes actually SUPPOSED to have a long nose like that of a turnip, not sure what happened :S

Anyway thanks for all the positive feedback guys :D I'm off to bed, it's way late where I live. I'm pissed off because I rented Donnie Darko on DVD and it stopped working towards the end. >:(

True.

Also, I accidentally posted a low quality of my elephant/bat creation, but there is a high quality one on this page (I don't want to repost it) It's right in the middle.

This is something I submitted for the Red Thread. It wasn't long ago that I made this, but my skills with a tablet have increased quite a lot since then

Thanks everyone.

Trying to draw in Flash, this is what I came up with. I wasn't happy with the water (it was just drawn in flash and looked messy/rough so I took it to photoshop, played around with some settings, and got a sweet 3d effect.

Feedback appreciated! :D

Very good stuff. My favorite is the one with the moon, my least favorite is the one with the guy drowning next to the fence, it felt a little weaker than the others.

Still pretty good though.

Anyway, yeah you have talent, and ideas? How 'bout drawing Micky Mouse in the same style you drew Sponge Bob.

Lol.

In your first image, I like the colors, but I would have liked to se a little more detail on the cliff. Also, the figure on it seems, well, stiff and not natural, if that makes sense.

Aah good, some criticism. Yes I know what you mean about the cliff. The whole drawing is actually fairly undetailed compared to my other stuff, but it was a first for me drawing a scene like that. Hopefully in the next one I'll put some more details.

As for the guy looking stiff and unnatural, he is made of chalk don't forget.

This is a Bubblezombie. One shot in the head and POP, they head explodes like a water balloon filled with blood and pus. Watch out for those claws though, they're deceptively sharp.
