Inktober #30 Heavy Metal Hard Rock Color


Switched the previous one up a bit; saved a day. :) Not sure which version looks best though. Thoughts?

This one here is very much like your last "ROCK VS" drawing but this one is much better, the elimination of all those black lines and giving more details into the effects and things in the middle was a good thing you did to improve this piece. I do think you could still make this bigger in quality and size as it is a nice concept. The effects are still not here but you used details with your lines to create some nice textures and detailing. Overall a nice piece of art and more improved upon your last one, so always good when you come back to things and tweak them.

Better than the last similar one but still needs to be bigger and have more effects inside it


Cyberdevil responds:

Well that easily decided. :) Still not sure which one I like best here. Good notes!

I think that I like this version more than the one with the writings being black! You have a cool style of drawing, sketchy and messy, yet neat - every line seems to have its right place. Great illustration of an amazing idea, gave me a chuckle! :D

Cyberdevil responds:

Happy to hear it. :) I think my style was born out of an uncertainty I really have what it takes to make 'professional' art, that's become like a trademark type with time, as the only one I really practiced with... very much related to the program I use for these drawings too though, Flash, as it has only simple brushes and little surplus functionality. It does have the most important thing though: smoothing! :) Thanks again!

All caught up again on your Inktober contributions #1-30 (I guess there's 1 to go?). Some scary monsters, some variations and some free-flowing thoughts from the looks of it :D Good times! To answer your thoughts too on #29 vs #30, I like #30 better, though admittedly it's very subtle. I think think the use of just the yellow and red in the background, vs the black and grey for the rock/weight gives more separation and a cooler contrast :D Really cool organic "noise" too with the random little brushstrokes. Really liking this one :D Great job!

Cyberdevil responds:

Yupp, just one more... and I'm actually not totally done with this one yet. XD It's the one that's been left undone for a couple days now... so hopefully tonight.

Yeah... that pretty much sums it up! Thanks for the opinion too. This one's growing on me the more I look at it too, though going back to the other... the dark text in particular really stands out along with the respective text-reflecting imagery... maybe some hybrid on that, and the more subtle borders would be the ideal for me. :) Thanks for reviewing all of them, sort of, so far, in these dual decalogy batches. :P
