I really love this thread, it's crammed with style and will to to do things right.
I loved the tatoo works, they're fantastic, I want to make a piece of such one day... the videogame characters also look adorably cute, you're doing a terrific work with that.

About the western piece... Yeah, It's that "thrusting hip" pose. Sometimes it's a bitch because the figure can look unbalanced, like if it's not really well-set on the floor... Your figures have narrow shoulders compared to their feet, making his left leg (her right one in the case of the squaw.) stand too much than desired... And choosing to draw volumes and details like crinkles and stuff quite naturally makes things worse, 'cause it makes it stand out even more.
You've seen my drawings... I tend to overuse that pose, so I'm talking from experience... I think it's too late for trying to make corrections, but I'll leave an ultra-quick sketch 'cause Igottoleavenowseeyoulaterlovebye.

hey thanks for the compliments guys!...

Joe... HAHAHA dude.. I did a few roughs for this piece.. and the sketch you did is one of the pose stances I drew! in fact the " above 45" is one of my favorites from the past.... I just used to do it too much.

I wish I hadn't of deleted my sketch, cause I swear it looks identical to yours....

DAMN, What a pity... I'm sure we could have some laughs together comparing!
Well, that demontrates that you really thought very well your picture. Sometimes it's a matter of choices... More "correction" or more "badass"?
There another thing demostrated, too: You really are the nice person that you seemed to be. Although nearly all artists "encourage criticsm", most of them just content with blind adoration and cheap praise... Something understandable, 'cause criticsm has really gotten an ill name. Most people just think of criticizing as "flame that guy off", and there's lots of people who seem to enjoy pointing at other else's "mistakes" (sensibly or not.)
So, sometimes the critic, although required, is not really welcome. But, fortunately, that's not your case.
Ooops, I'm afraid I went on a rant again... Let's save this chatters for the lounge... I'm going to work on something again. I hope we meet again on the near future. Best of luck!

the color looks good, but the legs and feet man....they still look off....there seems to be two different perspectives happening there. the characters dont look grounded and end up appearing contorted in different ways...i suggest drawing the feet first and work your way up

hahah sorry dude... I was just pokin' ya.... :) it was meant to be funny... hahaha I have been in your thread a bunch of times... and remembered that " stilt-legged-guy " I just didn't comment because someone else already pointed it out...

I will leave a comment in your thread next time I look.. promise.

and just so you know....I am REALLY, REALLY, not offended in any way, by the crits you have given... I actually appreciate your opinion and time.

I am ALWAYS open to crits... but I don't always do what ppl suggest....

so thanks.

a good colouring job but the tones are too similar, white dirty tops and darker guns or something to make it stand out.

Well, it turned out great! Congrats to your buddy, that color palette makes it look like an 18th century poster... I'm tempted to ask you to add the "WANTED", "dead or alive", "reward: .....$" and the barcode, author's names and publisher's logo... It really looks like a comic cover, dammit!!!
...And the cockroach chick is übercool. Way to go!

My first thought is that his knees are way to small. It looks like he has insect legs. Other than that i cant do anything else but lean back and be amazed at the detail and anatomy. Great job.

thanks Karl....
yeah I think I will increase his knee size.. they should be larger to support his weight but I wanted the legs to be like he grew tall really fast... so muscle mass to bone length would give that effect... like a Masai warrior or Kareem Abdul Jabar (when he got old his legs lost their girth and look like stilts)

That is sick man, as always of course.
As for the Master Chief thing I am reading about... Can you make him actually look awesome?

(Just some suggestions)
I want him Duel wielding Chain Guns, having some hot chick on his shoulder, and with a "I love Mom" Tattoo on his shoulder plate. That is as manly as it gets =p

Oh, and don't forget the pile of dead Elites behind him. No Brutes!

No Brutes? I hate Brutes they should be decapitated all over the place with their intestines strewn across the place like streamers and wall decore! Elites are at least somewhat decent and pretty bad ass. :b But I like the idea with the chick on his shoulder, maybe change of weapon though. :/
