I'm taking a break from this place see you all in the new year. I'll be in stickam still but this bullshit has gone on long enough. To those of you who actually ignored the shitstorm good on you but the rest of you dipshits who have kept and are keeping it going, fuck you. I'm more annoyed with you guys than the actual root of the problem at this point.
See you all in January.
agreed. I know exactly what you are talking about, people are acting pretty childish really.

I decided to break my hiatus thing because I just can't live without you guys. Also new drawing.

I'll be finishing my avatar for the advent calendar later today, by the way.
Sup Dudes and dudettes, I've got a few of these christmas cards left over that have no home. I can afford to send about six more out depending on how far away you guys get to be. If you want one pm me your address, if I get too many I'm going to prioritize who gets one based on how well I know you. So basically if you're on stickam you've got an edge.
Merry Christmas n' stuff everyone.
PS to anyone scared that I may come and murder you in your sleep don't worry I've already chosen Aigis as my future decorative lamp shade.
Also I forgot to say that I'll be mailing these out on Friday. So you're probably not going to get them till after christmas. And I'll be writing a little message on them if I love you enough, if not I'll scribble a dick or something on the back (I won't). After Friday I'm not sending anymore.
Another octopus thingy, this one's got a heart (again).
I started this a few months ago, found it earlier this week decided to finish it. Ink, Colored pencil and marker.

Thanks, I try.
Haven't done anything really worth showing lately. I've been slackin' yo.
Originally this was just going to be the hanging boombox dude, but I decided to throw in the businessman. I wish I hadn't. I'll be returning to this boombox dude later, though.
For a school contest. Hopefully I win.

You know that thing I said I probably wouldn't finish?
Well I finished it.
turns out it was mostly done anyway.
I drew something.

This was fun to do.
My friend asked me to draw a tattoo for him involving a Sublime style sun and the ocean below. Colored Pencil & watercolor.

You should think about working on the composition a bit more before your friend actually gets this tattooed. It isn't bad, but it's something that'll be pretty much permanently attached to him.
I thought I'd make life a bit easier on both of us, so I made you a handy reference for my critique. Sorry about the wall of text.
The first thing that I noticed was the strong directional movement pulling you out of the picture. In The Great Wave (Picture 4), the rhythm of the waves form this exaggerated spiral that pulls your eye all around the composition. You kind of have this happening on the far right side of your picture, but the main thrust of movement shoots you straight off the picture.
You have two focal points vying for dominance. Pretend they're fighting. Whichever one has the highest Emphasis Points (EP) wins.
The first is your sun. Since it's any orangy yellow, it pulls you to it; let's say the sun has a base EP of 30. The sun, however, is really close in value to the rest of the background (picture 3) so it starts to recede into the background, giving it a -5 emphasis debuff. It really isn't an active object either. it's basically two concentric circles, which, in this case doesn't really help or harm it's EP. Overall, the sun's EP is 25.
The other competitor is the wave. It's color doesn't contrast greatly with the sky, so let's say it only starts out with 10 EP. The wave brought two strong buffs with it, though. First, it's both your lightest and darkest values(picture 3), so you immediately pay attention to it. That's a +10 buff right there. Second, the tips of the wave are super active, giving the wave another 10 EP. The wave has a commanding 35 EP.
So the wave's 30 EP beats out the sun, but not by much. Though, that also means the the primary focus of the picture is also what pulls you out of it.
Look at The Great Wave again. The tallest wave is the picture's focal point. it's the area of highest contrast, both in terms of value and color. That part of the picture is also the most active.
Sorry if any of this isn't clear, and good luck on whatever else you're working on.

That was the most wonderful piece of constructive criticism I have ever seen in this forum!

By the way I totally won that, it made me $250 richer. Strangely it failed to fill the gaping hole in my soul.
Anyway, here's a painting I did for fun (or something similar to fun anyway).
Reading through this thread was great. It was a breath of fresh air to see you improve a lot since 2009. (I think the first post was 2009). Digging your creativity now.

Thanks man, I've come a long way since then. I'm flattered you took the time to slog through all of my work. Hopefully I can get to posting more often.
Also Happy Easter everybody. I didn't have time to do a better drawing so here's a scribbly sketch of a confused Jackalope.
When all else fails: Jesters.
I've been bored lately so I decided to draw another other Jester. This was just a quick one though. I'm gonna paint the same...
I liked the idea of this one but I didn't really put enough into actually figuring out how to draw what I wanted to draw.
Also here's the art portal link to that vexon I drew earlier.
