You guys are right. Kratos has a lot of *issues*. This one's gonna be hard to fix though. Oh well, I'd just have to finish this. Your also right about the black gradients I commonly use, I seem to dislike bright colors for some reason, but I'll try to change that for improvement. Thanks for the feedback. :D

On other topics. Behold! I present you the things I do during long classes! Doodles! :D I made them during math class! :D

lol

The first art I ever submitted to newgrounds. I think this one was about 8 months ago.

Hey guys! Did I improve? Tell me! (a totally stupid question)

Just one thing i noticed; Don't try to OVER airbrush, try using a mix of Default hard brushes and after use airbrushes. Or something along the lines of that.

Thanks for the comments guys. Yeah, that airbrushing thing has been a great flaw of mine since I started. Looking for a way to improve that. Thank you Larkatrosa, I appreciate it. I want to keep improving.

I tried something different at coloring. I avoided the air brushing.

Dammit why are you so good! That hatching is looking so pro, fuck I wish I could do that.

I've never seen this before. It seems your old style was quite different with the block shading and stuff like that. It would be interesting what a drawing in your old style would look like with the knowledge you have now.

Thanks cloudy, I think I'll try to do that. I don't even know how I managed to learn this style, but I remember the art forum helped a lot. :D

Oh yeah, this is another damn doodle, this time on chemistry. Actually my teacher didn't even bother to show up.

It looks like one doesn't it? Well I guess it is. Although it wasn't a gundam. Fun fact: I drew it on class. lol. I guess when I draw mechs, they just end up looking like gundams.

Must have been the excessive gundam watching I did as a child.

Well, it doesn't look entirely like a gundam, but the head sure as hell is a gundam's. I just thought for a minute that it was your take on one.

Can you do that for me in the future?

More progress. I think this is starting to look better, maybe because of a change in coloring.

Your Art Is FAT!

How if the fuck do you make the line art like that? Mine is so blocky and unnatural. Am I doing wrong?

Did a quick paint-over to show that you do not need so many details, simplified brush strokes sometimes work better. Straighten the gun out.

I'm not sure what to say for the pose... it looks strange and awkward for some battle jump. I think it would work better if the characters arms were spread in a T shape (jesus style) above his shoulders, as if he's jumping down.

Sorry for the size, had to make it smaller for NG.

Well buddy, you have a point there. But I think my original works better. Not trying to offend you or anything, but the paint over you did looks very I don't know, unnatural? But I love that you straightened the gun. Thanks for all the comments.

As for the lineart. It's quite easy once you get used to it.

I think it's the lighter outlining blue that is really throwing this off, not the background effect.....

I actually that it makes it stand out a little bit more than ever but There's really no need to nitpick over such "overthrown" additions is there now?

The one in the middle yeah it looks good enough to complete but to make a doodle into a full fledged finished image? It's a good concept
