hey guys been a tid bit. I got some new art in the portal. Just click this link. http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/kosto u/frog

I really enjoy Chrono Trigger so I thought I'd do some fan art. But, I'm moving on now and doing something entirely different. I'd like to know what you guys think so far. This is in the early stages.

The characters are recognizable, but I'm not a fan of Crono's face.

I like your drawings. They're so action packed and full of life!

It's kind of unclear what's going on with his shirt in this one... I would recommend grabbing yourself a reference of a shirt to see the way it folds and where the light and shadows fall.

hey thanks for that! Ya, it's not the greatest shirt I've done. But, I'm definitely going to try to become a better painter. I think it adds more life to the drawings than my comic book coloring style.

Thanks for the comment. Man, it takes me so long when I'm painting these pictures. This is as far as I can go with this one. Not liking how it's turning out.

Shadows seems very inconsistent and don't appear to have a light source except for the dreaded pillow shading. Let's not do that in the future. Don't do pillow-shading.

All the same, I'd like to see some actual finished artwork. Chop-chop, get to it.

I just used the brush on photoshop to pain this. It's quite simple actually, and I wish someone would have taught me before. You just mess with the opacity levels until you get a nice smooth look. Oh, here's some art I did.

Ok, here is my latest pencil sketch right from the scanner. It's kind of cool, hence it's here. Tell me what you think.

By the way, I don't use references. These positions and perspectives are 100% kostou, love them or hate them.

Ok, here is a character I'm working on for a comic. Once again, this is a totally original drawing/character and copyrighted by me etc. etc. I'm just sharing a work in progress. If you want to use any of my characters in drawings Please Ask For Permission.

I'd like to know what you think of this style/character.

Once again, I do drawings in any of the styles you see on my profile and in this forum for a very low price. I love drawing.

Ok, I'm about to ink this drawing I just did. Tell me what you think. It's a sneak peek guys, comment it up why don't you? haha.

Oh, and yes, that is a Ford. What else would Crono drive? If you have any questions feel free to ask by the way. I enjoy communicating with everyone here.

Ok, since this project is taking the time of 10, I'm going to keep you all updated during this long process. This also helps me keep going with it.

I'm just beginning the coloring phase. Check it out.

Don't worry keep going, I love your attention to detail, it's exceptional. But yeah people will leave feed back whenever. Me? I was just eavesdropping your thread I've just never said anything(I think - goes back to check [not really]). But yeah I appreciate your work.

You should totally listen to this guy, he's a brilliant artist and he colors stuff all the time and he is like pro at it. Seriously, if you're not convinced have a look at his art, he definitely knows what he's talking about.
