The following is out of form for me, I thought about being more dirty with its initial appearance and tried to present it a little more than my previous offerings, most of it follows a more careless approach to painting/drawing and is A-symmetrical, its a fine design to pass the time but doesn't really stand up on its own.

The idea for the appearance of helm can simply summarized as "bucket head" as the whole top is mainly a cylinder

I don't have a clear Idea of what the colors will be as of yet I should clean this, the idea ive had about this was taking inspiration from monsters and personas from the shin megami tensei series of games must fix his left arm

I was going to compete this and do all the necessary things but I simply grew bored of it so only pinky was ever drawn, albeit his head was ever drawn, I just loose interest in things I attempt, I blame my short attention span on cartoons.

I need some assistance, Is this taller and thinner or shorter and wider? Both my monitors are telling different stories on one it seems to be well placed and well proportioned on my VGA however on the HD monitor its wider and shorter. so witch monitor is telling fibs and needs to be calibrated.

you asked, so I went and tried to give, but realized I couldn't do it, so i went away for a bit, didn't want to post because I was ashamed that i could not deliver, so I ended up doing a different design based on a failed attempt, please forgive me, I suck.

That car design in pretty cool but it makes me wonder what exactly is the weight limit to sit in without having it snap in half mainly from the trunk?

I'm thinking around that: if its got an engine mounted in the middle making it have an MR setup, weight will be more evenly distributed thus equaling out the stress and weight distribution on each wheel, however there are different engine setups and the car doesn't need to be made out of conventional iron or steel.

what I'm thinking is making it electric powered, such as a tesla, and utilizing weight saving methods used by caterham or lotus, just to a lesser exteme, obviously the main idea behind the car is its suspension, witch will have to be tested but gyroscopic technology has been proven to work Lit motors C-1 for example has a weight dynamic system for not falling over, this is very useful for what the krab is going for.

I like your painting style, which is good, but you definitely need some work in the anatomy department. Oh, and whoever said, "OP is a faggot", you can gtfo of the art forum now.

yeah and I also need to work on clothes and fabric and reflections, can't do those to save my life, and perspective, that's on my list too.

Then again this is my first year where ive been legitimately serious about getting good at art and considering the difference between pages 1 2 and 3, and 8 9 and 10 the pace at witch i'm improving is good, but still if I don't put in the work I cannot get good.

The problem with that is that it shouldn't be "power points" to those who can decipher it, it should have readability regardless. If you want to have your text masking smaller text, I'd recommend getting a heavier weight typeface. Also, warping the type like that will usually mess up most of the qualities that the designer of said typeface intended to be present in their design, so unless you're trying to do something with perspective, or as one of my instructors has told me, a Burger King ad, try to keep the text warping to a minimum. Not to mention, the readability of "techno voodoo" is also a bit challenging.

As for the illustration sitting above the text, the face seems a bit flat, especially on the right, and the hair seems a bit careless. I like what you've got going on with the contrast between the dark face and the bright blue lines, but the face is too dark to see against the dark background. Also, is the dark background a gradient? Stop that.

Glad you came along spags, I certainly have to agree with you, I was looking at that one image and I thought how hard it was to read but I was unsure about it, it seemed fine and I just assumed I was being over-critical about my work, I'm glad I could get a second opinion because you've confirmed my concerns and given me others I overlooked, I certainly need to work on it which will be an afternoon and a half but I think I can breathe some atmosphere into it, if not something much better than the car crash we see here, as always I appreciate the critique.

anyway, came by to drop off a doodle of sorts, nothing relevant, just archiving drawings for the hell of it.
