I really like the background and colors used here. The shading and shadows were pretty awesome. On the topic of shadows I feel like the shadows of the rocks and his body maybe should have been facing straight back instead of to the back right corner. I understand that there seems to be a strong light source taking it that direction, but the shadows seem to completely ignore any effect that the lightning around Jack Wernicke would have on the direction of the shadows. Also, it would have been really cool to see a shadow of the boss with a darker outline to really give a good feel for how intense the battle is about to be.
I feel like some of the proportions are off a little. The lower body is very long while the upper body seems to be a little short. The arms bug me a little because the forearms are the same size or bigger than the upper arm. The ankles seem extremely tiny for the size of his legs and the neck seems odd for some reason. I think it may be how much of a point it comes to on the top. On the hands the fingers are odd sizes. It's weird that some fingers that should be smaller than the thumb in girth are actually thicker.
Overall it's a really awesome piece and a new approach on a Madness character. It would be pretty cool to see a flash series created using characters in this style.
I did the shading and lighting really late at night so it was kinda rushed, i'll keep that in mind for future drawings; Agreed, the body anatomy and proportions are off and should have been adjusted accordingly (this was originally just a pose sketch) I felt like this was perfect for Jack and incorporated it anyways. Overall, a lot could be added and fixed on every aspect of this. I appreciate the time you took to critique my drawing, thank you.
This is just awesome, showing how powerful Jack Wernicke is, and he looks like he's going to dance like Michael Jackson!
This drawing can be explained in one word: WOW
Looks like he's pullin' a sexy pose.
Wernicke back at it with the leg thickness
10/10 for that beautifully shaded leg.
that leg is still my favorite part of the entire drawing
