This was a little something I whipped up for my school's art class. It's nothing special, but it's one of the best things I've done. I thought it would look nice here on Newgrounds.

This piece is from 2009.



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

kind of...empty

Couldn't you at least draw windows or cars something?

ZJ responds:

Well, it was really just a simple piece that I did in about two days of art class.

"Great piece".

But just don't stop there, you could do so much more with this drawing! But don't take me wrong, I love the drawing. It's simple, yet has a noir/sadness kind of tone to it. If you can make any sense of that.

But above all it is great piece.

It's a cool hand draw man...But it seems a bit too sad...
I haven't nice things to say 'bout it, Fro said it all, but there are things that i would like to say(write) again...
The shading is very nice, the cubes are well drawn, but you could do a better job...

Good atmosphere, but the perspective is off

Well, the atmosphere of this picture is very good. It's very noir and reminds me a bit of the silent movie Metropolis.

However, sometimes the perspective is a little bit off. For example it seems as if we can see the building on the far right from an angle that is a bit more to the left than we can see the other buildings. Also, sometimes the roof is a bit higher on the back right edge.
Also it's a pity that there is a huge plain just behind the buildings. I think some trees or more buildings (some small houses maybe) would have been nice there.

Anyway, overall it's a nice picture, but there's still some room for improvement.

Lack of detail hinders, perspective is out

The main problem that a drawing such as this will have is that you don't have enough detail to draw the attention away from the issues you have with the perspective in such a case as this.

More work is required on the shading, so that you can get the pencil strokes going in the same direction at the same speed, so that it looks the same. Particularly on the front building, you've got an issue with the shading going in 3-4 different directions, which really does lose you marks on the whole piece overall.

Other than the obvious, you could also consider investing in some coloured pencils, in order to get yourself a more workable palette to produce these piece with. It's not like you're incapable,a s you've laid a foundation, but try to add some more bits and pieces that stop a street looking like a uniform concrete jungle, like a street map says it should be in most American cities and add some life to the works - street furniture, trees, clouds in the sky, an aeroplane, for example. You've got some good possibilities, so work with them and see what you can produce.
