I'm not the best artist in the world. I've received no professional training, not that all good artists have. I have a bad trait being that I have a relatively short attention span, meaning I often leave pieces unfinished or rush them through.

But I will try my best to improve.

The following artworks are the myriad of characters and concepts I have for a personal project of mine, The Macabre. Not all will be implemented in the final result, nor are all the designs here final. Also note that I do not own a tablet yet, so the quality of these drawings degrade even more as they are done through mouse. Also, I use openCanvas.

Feel free to criticise, I do not mind, no matter how harsh your words may be, and I will try keep this thread up to date as often as I can.

I should've specified and I apologize. I meant for this thread to be a gallery of my own works for my personal project, The Macabre. Sorry if you took it the wrong way.

Work on your shading. The evil knight looks too flat, you need to give him depth. Especially his eye/flame things, they could look cool if you made it look like they were coming out of his helmet, not part of it.

Like I said, too flat, try to 3-dimensionalise.

i agree with Harrah. Also on the first pic, try not to make the strokes so big, they are like as big as my thumb in some parts.


If at first you don't succeed, redefine success.

Thanks, but I need to know if there's anything that could be improved. Unlike most people I welcome criticism!

This one is your best I think. Your drawing abillities are a little off, but you have a great sence for colours - and sometimes thats half the battle won.
