Kinetic Kyle Poster


I voluntarily made this fan art poster for Kinetic Kyle on MySpace a year or so ago, I don't know why I did it now, seeing as how that guy, up to this very day never actually gave a shit, But I still love the poster all the same!
Alone in the Darkness I feel my own Sorrow,
There is no Truth in this world, Only a light which is Hollow...
...I shall create my own way, and then you shall follow!

Cramming in a thousand Vs and dots around an awkward drawing does not create good art. Some of your other stuff is improving, but I can't fathom how this got onto the art portal. The guy looks stilted, awkward, and a little clueless. The background is just an overload of detail that is just scrawls in and of itself. Dark words didn't help it much, either. Like the previous guy said, sketch it out--plan it, shape it, organize it.

Try drawing some real people, limbs, hands, backgrounds, or even tracing or copying to learn some anatomy and background shading. It'd be good practice, and I guarantee you it's going to be embarrassing when you look back on this, after you improve. Aim higher, and get some models to work with, or print out some anime or manga pics, if that's your style.

Just practice!

Thanks for the review, yeah my style is normally to mix anime with realism but I thought for once I'd try something different, guess it was fail huh?


Not really that good. First of all, I can tell you really didn't bother sketching before you drew this. Second of all, you chose dark words, or as some would call them, emo, but you didn't back it up with the theme. Lastly, well , your style needs some reworking, and I mean a lot. It just isn't pretty to look at. I could of drawn this when I was ten. I mean the spikes on the floor look like banana peels. The background dots look horrible, not to mention that they don't add anything to the picture. The straight to pen style that I know and love looks like absolute shit. And your character, well apart from having a backwards rib cage, looks mentally retarded.

But, I can tell this project was rushed, and you probably didn't give this the most attention, so I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt as an artist. Next time you decide to sumbit something, put time and effort into it. Add some color, refine your curves, add shading, etc.

Final Score:

AshtonNextGen responds:

Thanks for the constructive review, the idea of the theme was an emo kid trapped in his own dark dimension (like a dark place for his mind) I was planning for a dark cave but it later spun out into an ice world of some kind, the dots were meant to be stars but looking at the reviews I guess it was hard to tell.
(P.S. the backwards rip cage was just a t-shirt btw)
