Spawn Again Jan. 13th, 2009 @ 10:39 AM Reply

ok so since the first thing ever i actually did decently (for the time) was that pic of Spawn you can see on my Deviantcrap page and my art thread..wherever the fuck it is...

I thought.. hey! I'LL DRAW SPAWN AGAIN! just for the fuck of it...

And I want to do it well, since i kind of lose interest quite quickly in whatever i do, i though i'd open a thread on it, hopefully getting some decent critique and helpful pointers... and motivating me to finish it...

so here's a wip, please tell me what you think of it.

hopefully i'll be posting more soon.

Nice sense of light you have going to far. I would definitely try to maintain that. Dont let it become bulled down by a crappy background.

lol thanks

and thanks for the general comments,

As for the chin i know it's a bit longer...i though it would look a little more particular, instead of looking like a simple black silhouette of some buffed dude jiuced up on steroids. XD

i know this is nowhere near to be finished, there wont be any black part like that, plus blending and other crap is in order, otherwise it'll look like some copy/paste shit.

Looks like gameart scaled down like that, all pixely and PHITT.

Criticism : Only 2 i have.

1: If you plan on hooking the top of the cape like you have on the left fold, i suggest you hook the right one to otherwise it'll look slightly odd.

2: The definition below his pectorials are abit much it's starting to look Batman famous body suit.

Apart from that it's looking awesome and make sure you link to the finished, Good luck :D

Seriously, why are everybody doing art-threads if they're just gonna go ahead and do new threads for their images anyway. I try only to post my images in my art-thread, Even WIPs for bigger projects. It also keeps track of my stuff, wich s fun.
And why does people tend to post 10 post per image if it got its own thread, but not near as close when people post in their art-threads, and isnt plugging up the whole forum?

Well i guess i just answerd my own question.

Someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed today DIDN'T THEY!? Some people do things differently even if it isn't in the most logical of ways. It's not effecting you so just sit back and enjoy the art :x

It effects me! :( I've had pm 'discussions' with people about this very topic. I can understand it to a degree. Like if it's a special project. But some people seem to think every image they make is a special project. Da nerve!!

Anywho... I'm cool with this one ...plus I like WIP threads!! Any comments/critiques I may have had have already been brought up! So... carry on! ;)

I understand where LaserKarl is coming from, and I understand the problem with "clogging" the forum up, but i just wanted to shout out that the only reason i did this was to get more critiscism and observation off of it, since anything i post in my art thread get's pretty much ignored anyway.

Believe me it's not because I think it's "special", or in anyway different from any other piece posted on the forum, as i said it's just something i'm hoping to improve as i finish.

regardless, if it's this annoying to users i'll just leave it be

I hate to be the fanboy, and maybe I missed an issue or 70, but aren't the white areas around his eyes the wrong shape? Those are Grendel Spikes, not Spawn wings.

Again, could be wrong, but just pointing that out.

Well you should, yeah keeping every peice of work you do in your own post may be the most sensible thing but so what? It wouldn't get recognized as much if it didn't have a "SPAWN" title, and most of the spawn fans may skip past it "Your target audience?".

Every project or peice of art you do SHOULD be special otherwise there's no point doing it, i personaly don't see whats wrong with this, maybe open it up to a general "spawn thread" but then you'll get cock jokes undermining your hard work.

Hell yeah! I remember your original spawn, and this is a great way to test your improvement, which REALLY shows! I think you did an excellent job with the shading and muscle structure, plus spawn is just badass, maybe in another year or so you can do it again and relate it back to this one even!

hopefully i'll be posting more soon.

excellent, looking forward to it

update

i know it looks weird, i plan on blending the picture once i've finished the cape, that way it wont look like he's just pasted there...

plus i gotta work on the background, overall lighting, chains, and lots and lots of random stuff
