second option seems more interesting indeed, orange and blue are complimentary colors though I don't know if blending them (for shading) really works. Color theory still isn't my strong suit though, so I'd say do some practice runs on the shading...

Thanks for the tips, guys. Yeah I'll go with the second option. Tho, I'm having issues separating value cuz the orange and blue read as the same value, making the image relatively flat... but I don't want to like have one half a darker value than the other. Dilemma. =[

Something else I was considering working on. Akihiko vs. Kanji. Tho...I think I will just redraw this with more action-oriented posing. Just did this to get the concept and format down.

Love your style, and how simple and effective it looks but on the other hand how awesome it is... much wanting of artistic talent like this...

Since I STILL can't come up with a good Sol vs. Ky composition (and I've gone through three at this point), I decided I'd just do a quickie of Jam.

agreed, but i'd add 3rd and 4th options: envy and "zero bomb everything and five myself". People sereously can't handle the fact that theres someone better than them. So my only tip would be to take it not like a bad thing, but more of a good thing. Thats the same as playing a certain game really good and everyone thinking you're a hacker. What do they do? They flame you. The same thing goes on with art. So keep up this awesome work and keep those fags flaming! :D

Thanks, dudes haha. I mean I'm just gonna assume that they see something about my art that they don't like, but just don't want to tell me. Honestly I wouldn't mind if zero-bombers left reviews, just to see what their thought process is. If there's anything wrong with what I'm doing, I'd like to know.

Anyway, I'm quite horrible with eye placement. I usually have to doctor the eyes after uploading to adjust their placement. So here is the previous picture with doctored eyes haha. Now she's not all googly eyed.

^^^^ Do you ever say anything else? I think it's pretty obvious when someone is just trying to boost their post count.

Here's an older piece that I went back and tweaked. Fixed some perspective issues with the head, fixed the once abnormally long arm. Adjusted the color temperature a bit.

And so the awesomeness continues. I like your colored pieces, and watching your pics go from rough to detailed. Your wrestling chick picture is definitely impressive.. Your styles in painting/coloring vary just enough to make me wonder how you manage to do that!

I try something like that.. but it never works, haha.. I always feel off-balance then I go back to my old coloring/detailing ways of messy brushstrokes...

Never the less, great works!

Sweet. The only problem I see is how high the clavicles are- they're looking more like a necklace than a pair of bones that run from the sternal notch to the shoulders. Moving them down just a little should help.
