Hey Everyone the Meat-Heads are a project I've been working on for the past 6 months or so (complete with story) and I figured I'd share them with you. This is the First of them appropriately titled Meat-Head #1 there are to be 110 but I haven't broken 77 yet. Suggestions are welcome.

Here's Number two, he relies more on tech to get the job done while #1 is a well rounded killing machine.
I am working on cleaning these up in Illustrator but I'm not 100% used to it yet.

The Third of the Meat-Heads fell into the life of a Janitor after decommissioning from the military.
#3 is one of the few Meat-Heads within the first 30 or so to not be redone from the original.

basically its a parody of all the mainstream story backdrops the main story which is Meat-Head #1 features government supersoldier programs, which are the Meat-Heads, Nazi's, Robot Nazis, Aliens, Alien coliseum battles, and every Meat Head takes a different persona ones a ninja anothers a pirate, and you can see hat I'm getting at. I can send any one the overarching plot if they're interested.

Well good luck with your series and thanks for the support in the mean time here's #110.
Meat-Head #110 was the Second Meat-Head I ever drew and is my personal favorite.

The drawings have potential, but I would suggest on improving your anatomy abit. Also, it would be better not to sketch with pen. I'd suggest drawing it in pencil first. That way you can sketch and use helplines and whatnot. After that you can clean that up by removing unwanted lines with an eraser. After that you trace the lines with pen, giving a much cleaner result.

Don't like 'em. They seem to me a lot like something you'd find in the back of a schoolboy's maths book. Just can't shake that thought when I look at them.


No mate, no.

Well I'm working on cleaning them up on illustrator, but I don't want to put any of them until the whole set complete

Well here's another of my drawings unrelated to The Meat-Heads titled "Guardian". Essentiually he's just a hero with a shaved head and shades... Bruce Willis with glasses on.
This was hand drawn, but when I scanned it i messed with it a bit and this is it. There's a nicer more polished version in illustrator with skin tone n' shit but thats pain to make compatible with this site.

Below are two supporting characters from another project Titled Stinch: Time Cop.
They are only mug shots and one got a little cut off, will draw better ones at a later date.

This is The Sergeant of his sector M. Belzner from an alternate Earth time line where wolves evolved into the dominant species along with humans.

This is Robert Axian, he was moved to the Earth Patrol with Stinch and M. Belzner, he is arrogant as his race founded the U.F.P.S.T.C (Universal federation for the protection of the space time continuum) or as they refer to themselves the Time Cops

Here's the hero, Stinch a caveman who was chosen to become a Time Cop, in one probability he escapes (after the ship carrying him explodes)into the mid 1970's, and the other probability he becomes a time cop. The first story titled Stinch: Time Cop he works as one and about a third of the way in he is assigned a mission to kill himself in an alternate reality in which Stinch who maintains his caveman ego and silently kills thousands, eventually pushing the world into a nuclear war. Its up to the Time Cop and his squad to save that Earth. In Stinch: The Lost it is told from the other reality, Stinch's story from 1974 to 2014 on earth killing people.

Yeah I'm sure I will but if I find color absolutely necessary I use illustrator to color it as I only have about 5 colored pencils that I can find.

To be honest, I don't. It hardly looks like an explosion. Look at pictures of explosions and you'll see what I mean.

Dude what's your damage? its a cartoony explosion, fire, series of mutate triangles arranged in a way to emulate a fire, I thought you've established you don't like my drawings.

Quality over quantity can describe this thread pretty well, 110 is a ridiculous and unrealistic amount of characters, you'll start to repeat yourself at some point, frankly they look like doodles you would do in English class, which you said is how it started, as doodles in your notebook.
IMO the art forum is not the place for doodles
Something I noticed from being an over observant dick is that almost all of these have 4 fingers on one hand and than 5 on the other. I'm also gonna agree with memb here, your work could use some cleaning up.
