I am slightly confused. As cool as that comic thingy is, he doesnt really resemble my character? You meant Havayosunu's joke with the finger? I thought it was pretty funny :)

Your first picture has very good detail on the fur gloves and the wooden arms. You can actually feel the materials of them. The horse bottom, however does not have as much detail, and at second glance, it's not very clear on what it is. The blur effect looks like a blur, and not the fuzzy hair of an animal, so much so that it sort of blends into the background. Judging from the texture of the gloves and arms, you're probably capable of making it possible.

I think that your human drawing needs the most work in the face. You got the basic proportions in place. Now, you need to make the face a little more "3D". Even anime drawings make their human figures give a 3D feel to the figure to add a more human feel to the character. The chin and the jawline are too pointy and don't give the feel of a real jaw. The eyes need to give the impression that a round eyeball is underneath the skin. Right now, it's flat on a flat face. One way to improve is to study an artbook from any anime (though not stylized ones like Crayon Shin-chan or Milk-chan) and watch how they shadow certain parts of the face and add lines to make it more 3D. Or you could study an actual face and map out the dips an curves of your own face.

Thank you very much! I kind of noticed the failure to have detail on the "reindeer" body. I think it was because i doubled the layers on it, and didnt really concentrate too much on the details. I will definitly work on that!

As for the face... :( i know that is one of my problems. Lighting and shading on the human body is tricky stuff for me. Luckily i am taking figure drawing this semester to improve! I really didn't expose the facial structure like a real human face. With my next piece i will take your information into heavy consideration! Thank you so much for the critique!

Thank you very much :) i thought that the croctopus is my best idea so far, but perhaps not the best put together picture. I could spruce it up a bit, but i have 80/100 coffee cups painted and need to finish! I might post some here eventually, as well as some old sketched out art.

Wow, that ^ wallpaper is great ! I am also especially fond of the zipper. I don't know why, but it looks amazing, sketch or not. Everything else is good as well. Requesting more, please!

I saw you dropped by my Request thread, so I decided I show return the favor.

YOUR ART SUCKS.

Nah, just kidding.

Dude, I really see some progress in this thread, beit that it's only two pages long. Your coloring technique is definitely improving; I see a lot of depth and dimension in that last piece, with the mace-tailed animal. I was throughly impressed by your creature in the COW #10, as mine was a lame duck with unicorn horns. xD

Besides, people with ready access to art programs are the root of my envy.

Really nice stuff here, man. Look forward to see a lot more.

Oh, and if you ever have a request, drop by my thread again. There is no form of flattery higher than great artists dictating what you draw, you know?

You have seen it from start to finish on this thread, and given very helpful comments! My very first start to finish character that i actually put a ton of effort into!

EDGE

may i suggest, changing the BG and dodge a little between the shades, r just blend them in a little, to give it a more natual effect.

8.7/10

hmm, would you suggest a more destroyed sort of setting for it? I really just laid out whatever came to my head first, but ill take it into consideration on my next drawing of Edge..

As for tablet, i used my Wacom Intuous3 9x12. I really didnt need one so big, but i didnt realize it until AFTER i worked my tail off over thanksgiving break and ordered it :/ I AM very happy with its capabilities though, and highly suggest a wacom!

Cypress: Thank you very much! If i come up with a great idea, i will definitly throw you a shout in your thread! :)

Apocalypse: Thanks! I dont know if Cramer is in the field of bad-assery i am looking for, but ill keep it in mind! As for the drabber, if only you had said something before i named it the Maceolith, cause it sounds pretty cool!

Thank you all for your comments!
