I wanted to make a Japanese-looking symbol with some...imporvements.
This is what I came up with.I tried lots of colours, and blue was one of the most impressive...
As always, view in full size to see the details.
If the image's too big for your screen, try zooming out with your browser while zooming in on NG.

Yeah!! Details!

I simply loved the details you made here, man, I think that Japanese letters are very beautiful, specially with the textures you made, I was impressed when I saw it on full size, the details were perfect!! I loved the texture and the white you put in the middle of it to give a better look, I loved this one...

As I said before, JApanese letter are great for this kind of art, since they are beautiful and complex, I love this kind of drawing, and you made a really great job with this one, great, I loved it.

Keep it up HeavyTank, I liked your job... You have future in art!! Whoo!

Full size

Damn you and your large pics. :P

Seriously though, this pic needs to be viewed in full size. At first I was like: "Hm, not much effort put into this...", then I clicked the "view in full size" link and I was like: "Whoa, actually there's A LOT of detail here!"

Only downside of this picture is that it doesn't offer too many colours. Maybe you could add some more to the drawing to make it even better.

Haha, I like large pics because they have a very high resolution, and that means that you can see all the details...if NG didn't allow more than 2000x2000, I'd probably make them even larger :D
Anyway, I was trying to keep it simple with this one, but I guess that it isn't my time, uber-details and lots of background.

-There is so much detail in the zoomed out version that you can't even see in the regular NG sized picture. The brush strokes look almost bacterial-like and very smooth. Gives it that nice grainy texture that can be hard to get.

-It felt a bit bland by using one color. I know blue is associated with cold but you could of done a bit more than just two shades of blue. Filling in the brush strokes would also make it look a bit more professional.

Yes, maybe you're right, next time I'll add more colours...

Well I thought this was pretty well done but with it zoomed out like this, it just looks like you messed around in Art Rage for like 5 minutes until I zoomed in and saw all of the details in it but how BIG is your compute screen because it's pretty big to me really! But it would have been better with different colors because the blue background and the just frost thing gets sort of boring to me.

Well I would work on putting more details into this because a symbol isn't exactly the best thing unless it has something else into it but it looks like some sort of Japanese writing but what do I know about that? I only write English! Well with everything zoomed out, it looks like the clear marks on the brush strokes make it look shining when zoomed out a bit! Well I guess I will go to the overall score now.

Well like I said, try using different colors and try to completely fill the strokes because I learned in this review that things are not always what they seem but in this case, that mean that you need to have it zoomed in a bit more but keep trying!

Well nice brushes, its looks japanese except that its not well painted in some places... like the borders are not so good. Its a cold symbol so blue is a good colour. Anyway probably you should add it a background, or some ice around or something more because this are only to kanjis, or letters or dont know what...

Good effort anyway

Best regards and sorry for my english (my native language is spanish),

I tried putting a background, but I couldn't find anything that didn't ruin the overall image...anyway, thanks for the review.
