Not cool, dude. He expressed an opinion on your work, no need to go calling people idiots, its immature.
A lot of your stuff looks pretty good and I like your poses, but what really stands out are the blank backgrounds. I'm not saying every drawing needs to have a detailed background or anything, but a simple color and a floor couldn't hurt. Also I think maybe using some darker tones will help bring some more punch to your characters. Not saying you need to go super dark, just a bit more range in the contrast.

Sorry dude... I'm just telling you how I feel about these resent images of yours. To me they are visually uninteresting. Like an Archie and Veronica comic book or that dragon ball z cartoon. I found it odd that you called them attractive...


Like me on the FaceBook :D

I'm going to have to agree with DooDooMeaT here.
I'm not a fan of the watercolour styles at all, as it makes it just look like a faded image and rather.... meh.

I've received enough fan art to announce the winners. Therefore I will be announcing the winners shortly! If you have finished work please make sure to get it to me asap. I'm going to be getting a hold of a fellow artist to help me judge these submissions to make sure it is a fairer judgment.

Thank you for the wonderful art you guys, and continued support. I can't wait to get these prizes to you XD.

Hello,

Here's a digital drawing I recently did. You can watch me talk you through the processes as I'm drawing it. I hope this is helpful to all you aspiring artists!

You need to learn to tolerate critiques, Kostou. Take them as an advice.
And please work on your coloring.

Something I did when I first got SAI. I've deleted hundreds of these mindless sketches, but I thought I'd share one.

ok, so i'm seriously pushing myself to the limit with this calendar project. I've got tons of other responsibilities and it's making it hard to spend time on the calendar. I've been getting up earlier and staying up later to make time for it. I think the reason it's taking so much time is cuz I'm using a new program like an idiot, and I don't know what I'm doing...that being said.

Check out my profile and tell me what you think so far. Like? Dislike?

By the way, the reason i can't post it here is because the file size is huge.

so, ya. I want to know what you guys think. Is it even worth finishing? This is taking hours and hours.

So, if the Forum community is open to this idea. I'd like to start a NewGrounds exclusive "How To Draw" right here in my "Kostou Art" thread.

My plan would be to page by page in a comic bookish style show tips and secrets that have helped me as an artist.

Here is the title page I've got so far.

Yay or Nay people?

Ok, cool! some interest.

I'm wondering how often I should post pages of the comic..... once a week...twice a week...once a month???? Daily?!

I'm thinking I could do simple drawings each day and right out a bit of analysis on the particular drawing...something like this?

Or I could do a more detailed page with more in depth analysis once or twice a week?

Hmmmmmm? Any suggestions or one of the above you would prefer??
