Maturing... if it read my vote, but I'm always shy about extreme terms like phenomenal and boring as hell XD You've made fantastic improvements over the past few years, using a wide variety of media and techniques and demonstrating a great grasp on anatomy, perspective and scene. I would still love to see more from you, as I feel your commission pieces hold your work back a bit.
Browsing through the most recent page of your gallery, there are a lot of 'character pose' images (ignoring the recent characters tests for your series of course) and many I know are gifts or commissions. You've shown so much skill at bringing a character into a rich environment (with that beloved foreground ^_^) and using unique perspective... like that fishbowl pic you did of the evil pig XD
Funny you should say taht I am doing a rich full BG at this very moment XD [link]
For the most part the character poses and backroundless should be scraps are jsut there to keep interest in my gallery. people stop paying attention if you dont post. i normally would ever have put fanart or gaia commissions in there, and had been for a while limiting my male characters to Y! gallery
This place jsut DIES so effin suddenly and so i post more crap.
every so often after it picks up and i have enough new pieces in there I'll go move them to scrap or storage later.
ANd i've kinda put commissions on hiatus to work on my xlabs and Conflagration work.
my model sheets need to get done so I can have an actual set of them haha!!
believe it or not, my pictures with full bgs get LESS attention than the crap I upload.
I still like painting Bgs tho XD
got offtopic there...
anyways as walways thank you for a lovely indepth comment
Yeah I know what you mean about the loss of interest. I try not to upload crud (partly because I find it hard to just do a basic "character standing there" image XD and so my gallery is dead for most of the year. I always love seeing your rich pieces though, because they're great to look at, and far easier to comment on ^_^ That WIP looks really cool, I look forward to seeing it finished ^^
ya. but i crave the attention and need it.
also if i send somone thier comission or something they sometimes get offended that i dont want it in my gallery or demand i put it so they can fav..
its wierd. I moved some to scraps.
I like to keep active. you drop off the face of the earth sometimes XD I miss you XD
Hehe, yeah I tend to disappear for large chunks of time.. I'm always lurking though, just not contributing anything XD When we get our computer back I'll scan my manly naked doodleness maybe for you to see XD It has no hands... or feet... or face... I just keep fiddling while I watch tv now and then.
