the landscap in the giant painting looks cool, but the giant just looks like it was painted and then pasted into the painting, the giant just seems a part of another painting.

by the way check this out

That thing is cool. I like optical illusions.

Well, I just got through about 20 pages that I'd missed. That's a whole lot of art. So much good stuff.... Stem, your 3d artwork rocks. Twinsen, your animation went straight into my faves. Luis, I really liked that drawing you posted a couple of pages back of Tommy. BMK... make more >:( , that's all I have to say. Cheshirepus, it's refreshing to see that inkie sort of artwork you posted in the NGAS. Aah... I can't remember it all.

Anyway, here be the first decent thing I've done in quite a while. The picture is only a PREVIEW I strongly suggest clicking on this link to see the fulltastic image.

I will if you do.

Awesome picture, btw. I can't think of anything to criticize. That hair must have taken ages to draw, also I'm glad I don't go to his barber.

I loved that. Unbelivable that it made with just a ballpoint pen! Amazing detail and really accurate likeness.

Great work man, the ballpoint pen is such a lost tool of the trade.
I really like that portrait, its very unusual and expressive. I'll try and provide some criticism because you'll probably get more out of it than just patting you on the back all day. Its tough though because you did such a good job its like trying to split hairs. By the way any edits i suggest are strictly for your own knowledge, I am very against revising work after I've signed it and I think thats how it should always be anyway. Otherwise a piece is worked to death and it doesnt feel natural anymore.

Anyways I think the molars on the right side of his mouth seem a bit off, unless hes chewing a piece of gum, they seem a bit too prominent and large in relation to the other teeth. It could just be that the lighting is just too strong in that area.. maybe muddling it down with more line work like the left side of his mouth may be all thats needed.

Secondly the lighting cast by the chin on the lower neck area seems too harsh, if the lighting was indeed that strong then the shadowing under the nose is too weak. That shadow would need to pull down to over his upper lip to match the intensity you set up.

I like the hair alot, people have a really hard time really showing that the hair is part of the body and attached to the scalp. You really did a great job with it, it feels natural and i want to run my fingers through it.... err in a not gay way of course!

That is amazing, it looks like a photograph that's been photoshopped.. incredible likeness of the real picture. The mouth is my favourite bit, it just seems so real.. all of it is fantastic though.

oh nevermind the lighting criticism... i just looked at the actual photo, that is very unusual halo-like lighting that the photographer used.. You had it right all along, MY BAD!

wow great picture. intead of going on about how good it is, i'll say what i dont like..

line in chin takes away from the realism, unless it a beard (although the guy looks to young to have a beard)
shoulders make it look less realistic
top of the head looks to much like straw as if he doesnt have a crown (not as in a kings crown, the bit in the middle of your head that the hair splits off from.

Clever, but when I open your profile the pic doesn't match up quite right. Could be my browser though (Opera).

Yeah, maybe it's your browser.. in mine (Firefox 1.5 Beta 2) it's pretty much perfect, maybe a pixel or two to low.

Haha, another cool piece by you. Iv been a fan of your stuff for quite a while now. I love how you experiment with lots of different things and add humor to it. Maybe try expressing yourself also in different media outside digital art. I think one day you will be a brilliant artist
