This is beyond awesome. I love your simple bold style as well as the great colors, if you don't mind me asking, what programs do you use?

Thanks, I use Flash 8 :)

I'm glad you noticed :) The colour slider's a really cool thing

You'd be surprised; an average picture for me would take about 20 minutes, but for larger pieces it can take a few hours.

I might as well add some more art stuff - this is a gif of a castle exploding for a game I'm making.

Your work improved and degraded, at the same time.
Eh.

As you keep going, the drawings you make keep getting more casual and casual, as well as sloppy. It's hard to tell how this makes it all look good. I personally think it's the sheer simplicity, only with effort.

Probably my favorite in this thread (right after the "This is how you eat cake" one of course :]). Anyhow, I love all your art and I was just wondering, what kind of a tablet do you use?

That's some great advice you've given me, thankyou; I'll remeber it. I don't know what you mean by sloppy though. Do you mean my numbered pictures like "7. Heaven" etc?

I use a genius tablet, but I'm not sure of the size. It might be 5x4; It's smaller than my hand, if that puts it into perspective. I want to buy a bigger one soon :)

This is one of Jon Burgerman's creatures from his gallery in Tokyo. I'll be doing more of these.

At first sight, these pictures look much too simple to really get much attention, as if they were thrown together in most-likely less than ten minutes.
But when you look into the pictures a little more, study some of the things mentioned/drawn, and just.. think. When you look pat your casual eyes, into your artist's perception, you suddenly unerstand everything.
Every one of these pictures delivers a message, even if it's unintended by the artist. In fact, most artists don't even know they've delivered a message or not, especially with my personal works.
Take your cake picture, for instance. At first - a rather quick, if you would - glance, it's simply a humurous picture out of the blue. But when yo throw away those visuals and look into what it is, you see an inspiring thought or two.

In that particular drawing, the message itself is old but well-thought, known as "Strive to be different." or "Be yourself." If you want to eat your cake with two hands, who the hell's stopping you?

So basically, sloppy means that feeling of the drawing when basically overlooked - Simple, uninteresting, lazy. Listening only to what the story says, not delving deep into the beautiful arwork that it can, and was MEANT to be.

This is another one of Jon B's characters.

this going against what you said Hijack, I know, so I'll have some original stuff done soon ;)

Nice work, and be sure to post more often then once every 6 months.

This is a character sheet for a game I'm making. Look at those holes - the detail is glorious. When you play the game you can barely see them though.

Holy shit! Penboy has an art thread :O You've got some really great stuff in here. You've defiantly improved since I first heard about you when I saw Carnage and downloaded it and then decompiled it so I could examine how you and Snubby did explosions so cool... and so now when I do explosions or similar particle effects like the yellow on in the first post here it is based of your stuff ;D

I quite like some of the stuff you have in this thread. (Such as that character sheet .I liked the design of the helicopter in particular.) I know you draw in Flash, as you mentioned before, but out of curiousity, do you ever go over the brush line work with the Sub-selection tool?

I've never used the white arrow before (that's what it is right?). I usually just zoom in with an eraser and go from there.

Here's something else I drew today.

Oh, right. I was just curious. I tend to use it when I draw in Flash to even out the thickness of the linework.

I like the expressions in that drawing there. The background colours seem a little distracting, but that may just be me. Pretty cool drawing anyway.

Nice stuff man, and you've got a really flexible style going on :3. However, I would say to watch your consistency in line thickness (for example, the top of the walking guy's head compared to the rest of his body) because, while Flash is great for creating quick and easy vectors, you still have to watch your lines or, well, it won't turn out so good.

Also suggest experimenting with shading, all types of shading, and background/background props to give your characters a sense of placement.

Thanks for the advice. I haven't really put it to use in this picture but I get what you mean.

Thanks. I didn't have much time to finish this one up, with the lines and face, but the concept is still there.

I like the childlike surrealism that's present in all of your pieces - really ties them together, and gives me soemthing to smile at, I guess. You do seem to stick to a set amount of characters, but hell, it's all good. Guy in a suit wearing a jetpack = fun times.
