Someone recommended me trying to do some TV show or movie stills, so here's a copy of this shot of Breaking Bad (best show ever). Colours were coming out all wrong, so I went grayscale.

It's far from perfect, but I think I did pretty well with getting most of the values right n shit. Thoughts?

Did a copy of this shot from the brilliant There Will Be Blood. just wanted to get it ove it towards the end, so Daniel Plainview (the further figure) and aspects of the background aren't that great. I think I did ok with the colours, though, which was my main focus.

It's a midget with a pistol staring off into the horizon.

But it does look like hal if he was a midget with a pistol staring off into the horizon.

Messing around. Feels nice to know that I'm capable of loosening up.

The guy one the right reminds me of butthead from beavis and butthead.

The Keymasters are granted a life of luxury, but kept isolated and imprisoned. The dark arts used to keep them alive for as long as possible gives them a sickly, un-human look.

This is looking nice! I like the character design, and the little details are really nice, my only problem is the contrast. It lacks contrast, the character seems to blend into the background, maybe a lighter, more saturated background could make this piece really pop, apart from that great work.

hot diggity daffodil! thats awesome! really nice concept. Were you going for the pale washed out look? it works well, i like the stark contrast in the shadow area under the robs, if you'd added a bit more darker shadows in the creases and in the inner sleeves it would give it a bit more realism. Good job!

I was gonna respond to these when I submit my next drawing in this thread, but as you can see that took a bit longer than expected. Oops. Still, thanks to all of you.

Arms look a bit too short, I dunno maybe she's like that, but it looks weird. Also the palm of her hand is kinda small, it looks like half of it got cut of and fingers were sewed to it.

The zombie thing looks cool though :)

Arms are supposed to be at an angle, but yeah, I have a real difficult time portraying that.

Thanks.
