That pumpkin looks tad scary, it's like some head of an emo kid. Scary stuff man.

Yeah, I didn't even want to do it at first but my friends made it a competition which made it worth trying (I lost though)

I have to admit - I lolled, that's a fantastic idea for a pumpkin, very original and really picking up on the sort of emo shenanigans that you expect around the time of Halloween. Too bad that you lost the competition, but it was worth your time and the results are priceless. Great work, man,

Here's a poster for my band I'm working on, you can't really tell what it's all about, but just think of a Stalin propaganda and it might be clearer

Is it a coincidence that the guy in front has the same facial structure as 2D?
all their heads seem a bit small, and the poster in general could use more definition everywhere. Sometimes it can help to just keep your soft base and add some strong lines to that.

Well, actuslly in a fit of laziness I traced me and my bandmates, and the guy in front is me so yay for looking like 2-D!

In regards to detail, it's just the steps I'm taking, first I did the simple spaceships, then I did simple shading of our bodies, then I added clothes to me, and such, probably the only finished part is my helmet haha

It looks good, though I have to agree with QBles on what he said. It does look pretty flat, and one thing I noticed with this update is that the mask on the guy in the middle pops out more than anything in the whole picture, so if you are going for a flat, 2-D picture then fix the mask, if you are going for something with depth then make everything in the picture like the mask (pop out).

I quite like it. Your outfits are certainly interesting, though I presume you won't dress like that while actually performing. I like how your skin colors are done in shades of blue. The guy in the back's head looks incomplete, though I'm guessing you'll fix that within the last 30%.
The background is pretty cluttered. Not too badly, but I don't think you should add any more to it.
Anyways, I think it's pretty damned cool. Good adaptation of that picture of you guys.

I was thinking of removing some stuff from the background strategically but I have no idea what I should remove or relocate or if it's a good idea at all

And actually we are working on being more outlandish with our wardrobe, like wearing space suits, these outfits and such for our coming shows haha

A themed drawing I started yesterday thinking about how ancient civilizations might explain rain, and the idea I liked the most is that the rain is tears from the sun, so here's what I started

I might have made the clouds too many colours... I also think the clouds are too much like blobby/hard edged splatters

Nah, I like the clouds; I think you should make those few close drops a lot sharper though. Water can be hard to draw cause you feel like it wouldbe seetrough but it can actually have very strong reflections. try studying some photographs of raindrops or something.

Can I just say, that I don't know what half these people are on about!!?? (Particuarly the comments on the first page!!). I get that your art isn't perfect, but I personally think your worthy of calling it art, unlike some of these forumers. I think that your very original, and I love that. Your really good, particuarly at working with different textures, and combining them to create something unique!!

I love your work, and I reckon that your destined to go places. You ovbiesly have a passion for art, so go with it. Some of those comments were really messed up, and I just thought i'd give you some positive feedback. Your really good, and I can't wait to see more!!

The first page is over a year old. Look at his recent stuff and see his improvement.

Looking at my first page, I was such a baby, asking for criticism then getting defensive...
