Re: Drawings and other Art

That's a great mini-figure, Blue. The legs seem wrong, somehow, and I think the head needs a little work, but everything else is great.

Re: Drawings and other Art

I think it's the perspective, because I took just about every conceivable measurement from one of my minifigs so that it'd be an accurate recreation (with a few small concessions).

But you've just reminded me that I've got the wrong version of the head in the file - I'd made a hollowed out one that has the three way split inside the top stud but merged the one from my mobile 'fig which doesn't have it since I've been trying to keep the polygon count down. Good thing I saved a crazy amount of backups as I went along.

Re: Drawings and other Art

That's great NO! It's very good but the legs and arms seem a bit off, but they're pretty good.
Is there something I missed about posting your art for the fun of it? I would really appreciate some feedback for my Photoshop art that can be found up ^

Now, graphic design isn't my forte - that's digital art - but it's laid out pretty well. The complaints I have are the fact it does scream 'photoshopped' at me (as a multimedia student you start noticing these things a lot), the perspective of the balloons are going against the rest of the picture (a picture of a balloon on in instead of looking up at it would work better), and the Earth needs to be not as vivid (if you're using layers, drop the opacity a bit). You really don't need that grass effect on the text, it looks kinda tacky and just plain green font will do the job just as well (people naturally associate green with nature, rendering the effect completely unnecessary). And having the white for 'Fluorescent' is a little too much, tone that outer glow down a bit, and maybe have it a little off-white, because it's a little painful to look at (tone the glow down on the Earth too).

Basically, the whole thing has so many objects with high contrast (in both brightness and colour), it makes it hard to know where to look. In an informative poster, the texture should be the most instantly noticeable (because that the part you want people to notice).

Hope that helps. mini/smile

Re: Drawings and other Art

Finally, I'm posting a drawing!
http://www.vulomedia.com/images/77531bondchasedrawing.jpg
Here's a drawing I did of the beginning chase sequence in Casino Royale (best chase sequence in a film EVER).
I hadn't seen the fight scene in a while at the time I drew this so I might have a few things wrong here.
As you can see it's not finished, and I don't plan on finishing it either, I suck at drawing buildings. mini/mrgreen If I did draw them it would just ruin the drawing. mini/confused
I've been drawing a few pictures of the James Bond fight scenes of the new movies so I decided to post one. I might post more, we'll see. mini/smile

Re: Drawings and other Art

Here is something I painted a while ago. I posted this on the Refugee Camp, but I didn't get much feedback.

Re: Drawings and other Art

That's pretty good Nailer, but you should use the img tags so that it will be easier to look at mini/wink

Re: Drawings and other Art

Thanks mini/bigsmile

I tried. Does it have to be on a hosting site, or can it be directly from DA?

I NEED A SCANNER!! The one thing I miss most (outside of free meals) from moving of my parent's house. I have a bunch of art I've done lately and I want to upload them.

Conor, you need a url that has .jpg, .png or something similar on the end.

You need the direct link for your image - get this by right clicking on it and choosing 'Copy Image Location'.

I suggest previewing before posting in future, so you can avoid finding out it didn't work after you hit submit.
