i'm talking to you. I think what you've done is great, and you've responded well to all the comments and responses here. The thread even survived a strange troll attack. But I think the original drawings complete now. I think you can submit it and be pleased with the work you've done.

End.


nobody goes there anymore. its too popular.

Apologies, just realized you've already submitted it, in this instance I think you should submit future work in a different thread, given it's sort of different form this threads topic

OH so get this deleted and make another thread for my future work to get critique sort of like this one but with a different first post and things like that. Ok then could a mod delete this so I can make a new one?

Thoughts on the inked version? Can anyone give tips on how to color it like this image or at least similar to that? Thanks in advance, here's the inked version. I will add the tank I made as the background for this one.

I don't think you should request a thread delete, besides if you keep all your work here, then people can easily see your progress. also it will retain a name that will probably make people look at it and comment.

Ok then forget about that mods, false alarm.

Any tips on how to color it like that? I really want to try that out but I have no clue on how to do that.

THanks, I'll try it out.

Decided to go with my traditional style of shading to finish faster and it looks quite nice. Should I add the blood stains and the dents to the armor? Hope you like it. I must say I finished it pretty quickly. Took the cigarette away cause my mom was wondering me about it so just took it away, may add it later if I feel like it.

Thoughts on the last two pieces? I will make the avatar a little bigger so you can see my face a lite better. Having that avatar makes me feel like a NG mod. It's so cool. To bad i ain't one, just yet. I will be one soon. I just need to get my self recognized by the community.

Hey that ain't a bad idea, Brush. I will even do it using CC character (yes the troll) I have this amazing picture on my head, it will look awesome when it's finish.

I was thinking of making a comic but I don't really have any ideas for that, would you help me out guys?

How's acting like a dick on porpuse? I know Rottna is he told me himself but let's stop talking about him. I don't want another troll fight to happen in this thread.

And you intend to do that by making a comic/drawing about him?

Is not about him, he inspired me to do something. Not for him, not about him but more about trolls and that kind of thing. It won't offend him or nothing like that. It's actually coming coming quite nice. I'll post an update soon.

you obviously havent been around ng much, if you think hes bad youv got a lot to learn and it gunna hit you...hard, hell joethetoucan is worse than that guy but he makes it funny

as for drawing do something more realistic, if your using photoshop try something in a painting style, see what you can come up with, its good practise

just focus on finishing it then post it, at the start we was giving you lots of help because it was a big piece and we was trying to help, now i think thats ran out and the constant need for crits is kinda annoying some people, if you have the psd you can always change the finished piece to respond to the crits anyway

had to be said

Thanks for saying that. I will just post picture as I make them and keep working and if you have any critics I'll go back to it and fix that.

Hope you like it. I still need to make the troll king but I think it's looking quite nice so far. I'll start sketching out the king and then if it looks good I'll color everything.

I will make the silhouette of a castle as a background or just make it as a solid color.

OK then Kensai I will satisfy your hunger, hope you like it. I was thinking of adding the words 'Even Trolls need a leader' on the bottom of the piece and have it like go into the shirt, something like this.It's just a thought, I may not go with the idea. Hope you like, comments are greatly appreciated.

Only the trolls are colored and it's only the base but I'll be shading in an instant.

I didn't say a damn thing about critiquing it, I just want to see it as he works on it. so it's either posting it to show progress or a live stream. but I'm not going to be here all day to watch a live stream.
