Nothing wrong with the old art  :)  I myself sometimes go back to my original works and it kinda gives me perspective on where I've been. Mega Man X is looking a little worse for wear.

Eventually you'll get it. The bane in my art for the longest time was hands. They would always end up being too small. On small/distant characters it wasn't so bad. But if I was doing a close-up then the tiny hands were really noticeable  :P

You're feet on this image don't look as bad as I have seen in other works. Trust me on that. The left foot is really good and though I can see the issue with the forward right foot, it isn't all that bad. One of the things I do before inking and colouring is examine my pics; seeing what could use improvement and what needs a downright fixer-upper. My brother uses the mirror technique for doing his images. Supposedly seeing the image in the mirror will help you pin-point the errors in your work and allow you to make better decisions/judgements on corrections. Give it a shot if you find yourself struggling with something you can't put your finger on  :)

Not bad either. The mid-section (the pelvic area) does need some corrections/fine tuning though. If you're having trouble with certain action-based posses then you can always try to find similar poses on the net (photos of people or other images) and see if helps you. But do keep going  ;)

Looks good Bloo.
I prefer the hair in the initial sketch.
It would also be cool to add to buster particle effects like he’s charging

Are you going to add colour depth for the armour, face, eyes, and the blue crystal glowy bits?

I'm gonna do full comic book style shading for it

i've made the hair bigger and fluffier again in the recent drafts
and i've been making a 3d effect to go over the buster similar to what's seen in megaman zx when charging

Yeah but nothing like the above. I was more n' less just doing colour swaps and the odd animation alteration here and there. I haven't pixeled in a while so I am very rusty  :-\

That's an interesting tactic for pixel art. The steps you took looks very much in line (no pun intended) with how a standard image is sketched and finalised.

Lookin' awesome!

I suppose it's an artistic license but Link never did use the Master sword in Zelda II. Still is a lovely image though! :D

And YES!, Trevor is actually wearing armour like his box art in CVIII! I don't see why they didn't do that for his character in SotN.

All in all, these are some juicy works of pixel art  :)

Looks good for a 'not in a while' image. There are times where I've stopped for years, then I do an image and it's almost like I never stopped in the first place. I suppose I should count my blessings in that way as others might not have it as good  :-\

The cloud paintings look good! It's nice to see artists go out of their element in order to expand their horizons. What's even more interesting is if I squint my eyes the image becomes blurry and it look like a real-life photograph. Give it a shot if you want  ;)

The 'work in progress' image is also eye-catching. If I didn't know any better it seems like a cover piece for a metal band album.

O.O I don't think I'm personally capable of sustaining myself off my art if you're implying that, but I'm working on making it commercially viable. My entire living space is kinda like a studio tho, I'm pretty disorganized.

Unfortunately life got pretty turbulent and I haven't painted in a minute, but I went on a trip to Colorado recently and now have lots of fresh inspiration for landscapes. Haven't done any yet. but soon.


All I have this time is some admittedly very quickly finished Richter artwork to commemorate the 35th anniversary.

Worry not. I would never advise that. Though I personally wish it was a guarantee that an artist (of any level below the professional level) could make government-based wages off of their work. Only the most infamous, influential and well known get that kinda money. Kinda unfortunate that it's like that  :P

lol! I wouldn't worry about that either. Most artists probably have that same issue with their studios. It seems to be an artist thing if you think about it...

P.S. That Richter portrait is duds  8)  Although personally I'd have swapped out his leather whip with the morning star one. But that's just the artist's personal preference in me  :)

Hah! My space is a mess of boxes, books, papers, collectables/toys, craft stuff,  etc. >_< And I don't even remember what went in the boxes. I'm in the process of cleaning them but I got too tired so I'm taking a break. At least I got the 800 books for donation sorted out. :)

I can't wait to see your landscape paintings.

I LOVE THAT RICHTER!!!
