No shit?

Anyone with first hand experience care to comment?

I've seen it used a few times but never had the pleasure myself.....it's one of these ones heavily geared towards convincingly emulating traditional linework, right?

 

I might have to give this a try.

Um. I kind of like it but it's always felt UI by committee to me. Not my main choice but some artists (like the very lovely Roz Hall) throw it around brilliantly.

I haven't drawn anything for ages, but my one kid asked for this character from Hero Academy and then the other kid asked for another one. I quite enjoyed it I must say, cathartic. But the time vanished instantly what is that about?

Right, I'm going to chuck these up on Red Bubble as cards soon, and I'm trying to get as much feedback as possible so I just want to know if they read ok. I've asked the dog's opinion but he's neither use nor bloody ornament. I know there's a lot going on and they'll only be 6x4 I think so any feedback would be very useful.

I love the characterisation and style.

If i was being picky i'd make the background less busy. I don't think the characters stand out enough, there's no contrast.

And are those pictures cropped ? does Santa's list only appear on half the final card ?

 

Other than that I think they're really strong visually.

 

:D

I learned a very valuable lesson about framing for the format you're illustrating with these. The Jesus and Santa illustrations I did mostly last year and it was only when I came to compose it that I realised I'd fucked right up with the framing of them. Those Street Fighter loading screens are very tight in their real estate. 

I'll have a look at the business of the backgrounds, cheers dude.

Does anyone have any book recommendations for someone wanting to learn to draw perfabably cartoon/2d video games style.

 

How To Draw Comics The Marvel Way. It's probably the most accessible and fundamental art book you can get. It was for me anyway.
