Anything to annoy people that would actually be upset when seeing this. Go right ahead.

An hour-long challange. Didnt spend enough time on it though.

I'm really interested in you color choices. Do you just grab what you think will look nice, or do you have planned color theory you stick to? It's a really muddy quality, but you splash a dab of color here and there and it really shines. Very cool bro.

I have an idea of what kind of colors I will use in a image. I don't set up a specific color palette for images like these though, I see the image and work the colors from what I see the image lacks or have too much of.
I really need to get down to really working with colors and lighting on a deeper level though. Im reusing too many old techniques and effects without thinking.

:Very cool bro.

Thanks man

Man, you have some great stuff going on in here. Your pieces look so painterly and juicy, something that not enough young artists do. That said, some of your stuff looks a little un-finished for lack of a background or too much negative space left un-adressed.

Keep up the good work!

Maybe a little late, but thank you. I like constructive input :)

Another W.I.P. Hope this will turn out good so i have something to show again soon.

Resized, destroyed quality and composition and about everyhing else messed up aswell because newgrounds still think an artistic forum needs a 599 px width limit. Who paints bigger than that anyways? 150 kb can hold all information needed, right.

I don't think I will, the idea i had behind it was been lost, and it isn't very intresting to me anymore. Another one to the large folder of unfinished stuff i guess :)

I may very well be judging a little fast here, but I would say I am a little unsure if this is the way to go. Even though it looks smooth and impressive then I think it looses some of that trademark laserkarlistic play with the colors in the light and shadows. It's a nice picture though.

Thanks man!

This isnt really a style I want to work with, its more of a training-thing. I need to be able to do the hyper-detailed stuff if I'm gonna work with 2d though, which i might end up doing in a couple of years if I don't become a 3d animator. I really hope I don't have to do that though. I wanna have the painting-bit as a hobby. :)
