I don't know how to feel about your work, it doesn't wow me and it doesn't suck it is just waiting for me to have my back turned and then cloroform me and I'll wake up in a bathtub with my kidney missing.

posting spree anyone?
I kinda agree with the other guy... (I do know your name, I really do. I just find it more stylish to act like I dont care about poeples names) your art is okidoki, but it doesnt really "twang".
Really, I cant help you a whole lot on this... its f"ing difficult. possibly the most difficult thing in this whole "art" thing...

still, you are doing quite a decent job.

I just stepped out of the shower and I feel refreshed.
Also, nicely done on the Heart of Darkness jungle. It really brings me back to when I was reading that book. The image portrays the atmosphere of the jungle very nicely.

What better way to revive your art thread than by posting a picture of a klansman riding a unicorn?

I can't think of anything.

I'm not going to bother trying to read 'further and deeper' meanings in your art or anything. In fact, I'm just going to take it up front - lol. A shallow response to a seemingly shallow point of art. I like it.
Anyway, you're simply missing detail in your drawings - just seems you could still very much retain your style and add meaning meaning will the small things - defined gums, a missing tooth, muzzel flash - it all works.
I still like it, though. Especially at 12 am.

Time to revive this old thing I guess.

Tried making a human face without reference and to challenge myself to give my drawings definition when without lineart. Usually my digital paintings look like blobs of colour. Think it came alright, especially the nose (is it just me or are those things really damn fun to draw?), despite looking very generic.

Crits and shit quite obviously welcome.

Those pieces are 4 and 2 years old, respectively. Still, thanks for the kind words, I suppose.

This is why I waned to make a new art thread instead of bumping this old thing (which a mod didn't allow).

I'll post some of the better shit from art school. More in the art section of my profile, if it's of any interest to you.

For the sake of variety, have a gouache painting, though I don't really like it too much. I'm still struggling with paint a bit, though it's getting better.

So here's some sort of sketchy speedpainty thing. Liked the mood, but didn't know what to really draw.

I'm not sure who it is, so can't really tell if it looks like him... chances are it's not spot on or I would have recognized him.

Most of the facial structure seems okay, I see you used some guidelines. His left ear is a bit wide I'd say.
The whole portrait looks a bit unbalanced; the eye line is tilted down to the right, he seems to have more cheeck on the right, has less lip and less beard. Combined with the big ear on that same side makes the piece lean to the right.
I think you could improve by using a wider value range; you've got nice dark blacks on his shirt, but on his face everything is very bland; it has very little shading which makes it look flat.
Lips (especially male lips) don't have strong outlines.
If you are using a reference (which I suggest you do); you could help yourself by making it black and white (if it isn't already) that way you can see values better.

He's got pretty big ears, but yeah, I might have overdone it. You're right about it leaning to the right.

There aren't really any strong shadows in the reference pic too.

Lips (especially male lips) don't have strong outlines.

Yeah, lips bug me so bad. I can't draw them without making them seem feminine.

If you are using a reference (which I suggest you do); you could help yourself by making it black and white (if it isn't already) that way you can see values better.

Holy shit, why didn't I think of that? Doing that now.

Thanks.

Haha, thanks. Not really planning on doing anything with it since it's a quick doodle.
