His have no backgrounds and that's better? Wasn't an attack, just judging his art back. Having good work really doesn't matter when critiquing someone elses, but I thought i'd look at his stuff for fun just while it was up in the air.

Actually... his are a lot better. he at least tries and understands. You on the other hand, are just looking like an ass. Attacking people for no reason won't get you far here.

No, Kinsei wasn't doubting that is was done by mouse, it just isn't very good. Background is an afterthought and the lines and color choices are just bland .Thanks for the input, I agree to an extent however, I know it doesn't take an artist to judge an artist, but yours aren't much better. No offense.
Better luck next time?
So why are you really here, validation, praise, help or trolling? Cause at the moment it seems like the last one of that list.
A lot of my art doesn't have backgrounds either, not to mention a lot of it is just line art, but I'd go out on a limb here and say that mine is better than yours. Just cause it lacks a background doesn't make it better or worse, its about the content that is there rather than the content that is absent.
Anyway I digress
His art isn't the art being discussed here. yours is. So lets not bring it up at all. If you want to discuss his art, go do it in his threads, on his pieces, on his blog or in a pm to him.
Moving back to your piece. It looks like what it is, a bunch of scribbles mostly. Not a strong layout or design. It looks like you traced or filter raped, or both a picture of a person and the white house.
It looks like their might be a bit of dodge and burn tool, improperly used of course.
Over all, its just not very good. So aNay in response to your tread title.
You should study, if nothing else how to use the tools more properly inside the program you have. I'm assuming you used Photoshop or GIMP. Doesn't matter though what program you used, you need to learn and practice with the tools a lot.
You should also look in to some principles of design and some composition tutorials as well. Those will help you layout your stuff much better resulting in much stronger pieces.
Yeah, so better luck next time.
Oh and for the record. Much of my line work is done with a mouse and pentool. So it'll take something a hell of a lot better than this to impress me.
