now that i got the highlights in i can start on the background hopefully i don't mess the piece up with it. i'm working extremely hard on this one but any hopes of it being frontpage flew out the window with these boobs and seductive pose.

It's looking great! But the lights on the rifle are bothering me, I think you're blurring them too much which makes it look a little weird. I actually liked it better in the picture you posted before.


Who are you looking for? What are you looking at?
A light? a star. A boat? an insect. A plane? a flying fish

the background is still in abstract mode, using a relatively close technique that of ZaneZanSorrow which is what i was inspired from. helicopter was slightly referenced from this picture. also the brown orangy thingys are going to be buildings.

you are totally right, I didn't notice you had posted something earlier I had to hurry up and post. I'll make it less weird looking in the finishing touches when I figure where I'm going to put a bunch of smoke and flames.

damn, those colors really make it pop! this is def. your best piece yet. my only recommendation is to not draw too much attention to the background. make it really detailed and everything, but maybe blur it slightly or use darker colors. you don't want the focus of the picture (IE, the pinup chick) to blend in to the background or be muddied out.

great work so far! looks like you're really taking your time on it.

Yeah i know lol, just the base colors probably won't be able to tell once i get all the darks and highlights in. oh yeah and fire and smoke also. now this part honestly it doesnt look like it's hours of work but this sure as hell took long(maybe because i were partly distracted). i'll try not to put much more WIPS of this piece.

i was thinking more along the lines of guns and boobs= this (image below). Not allowed to have symbols in the title, or have a longer title. or else it would be something different. that is definately a good title though :) lol.

Well, remove the hyphen and just be "Destruction and D Cups".
Definitely a bit more catchy than what you currently have ;)

lol! i totally changed the title to that, but looking at the score it got would have totally broke my lil heart if i took that voting system seriously, hard work pay off? in some cases yes, but this not so much. people can just vote a 0 if they don't like the person. but as a head's up this next piece is going to be sketched out traditionally and colored digitally... honestly if i had money to blow i'd be doing a bunch of stuff traditionally but i don't all's i have is a pencil and some computer paper. and now my tablet which is better in ways such as keeping things organised and better money wise.

I don't know where i'm going with any of this but it's like 4 am i haven't slept at all, Damn! i am so random and out of place.

well , if you enjoy doing what you do just do it, when i start commissioning i'd be taking up almost anything ppl throw at me except no furries.. oh god i hate those, no chicks with dicks thats wtf man really? and possibly realism.. very tedious work, with a reference its the easiest "shift" ever i don't use references for shit, i rarely use them. besides the latest piece last time i used a reference was that big buff guy in my comic thread.

i think i should get some sleep im talking nonsense.

some line art, i was inspired by this Piece and i also referenced it. This is an old character of mine, in a santa suit just for the holidays. i found out you can change the lines with a brush in the brush drop down window! this is an epic find for me!(that is also why the face is like that) this line work took me an hour and 45 min. I guess i can make this a WIP im liking the way its coming out.

Is it more than 599x700? You could also say screw the BBS and its silly shit and put it on the dump.


I have nothing to say that is at all relevant.

Well, the BBS usually just scales down the image but keeps the proportions maintained. So unless Zane is working in a stretched proportionality, the image shouldn't be distorted like that.....

Well i'm still fairly new to this computer drawing mess so i tend to experiment, Honestly didnt know what the dpi was and i changed it to like 600 lol! the height is much larger than the width than could be the reason, but i think its the dpi... i Tried to change it i don't know if it worked or not. we will see when i post this..

Also it is basically finished any last minute things i should add or anything?

I'm guessing your character is looking a bit squashed since it was scaled during the scan, making the pixels rectangular.
See if this helps you out.
