I noticed that nobody has offered your great artists any feedback on your work. If you're interested, here is a mild breakdown:
PRO- Nice composition! Excellent use of space. Nice full image...
PRO- The anatomy of Cable is fairly accurate.
PRO- Small details like Cable's torn shirt and line-work for his hair add a sense of "attention-to-detail" that take your basic figure up a notch or two.
PRO- Good decision to go with gray-tones here. It really works for the image.
PRO- Nice facial expression for Cable. The intensity of his rage is very apparent.
CON- The pile of victims could use quite a bit of work. That head in the foreground looks a few notches below the quality of Cable's. Try drawing a head at that angle from life. That angle is tough, but I know you can do it...
CON- Those speed lines usually indicate movement, but you've used them in conjunction with a static pose. Causes a little bit of visual confusion. Is he moving toward us? Is he perched atop the bodies standing still? Are the lines there to indicate anger or urgency? Perhaps the message could be defined a little more clearly through the body language of the main figure?
CON- The cracks on the rock resemble glass "cracks" and not really rock cracking.
CON- The tones are a little too uniform. Future note: It might be beneficial to change up some of the tones on the foreground (lighten) to bring it more forward.
CON- That hard outline flattens the figure. More line-weight variation could help.
Overall: I like the pose and the execution. Strong and simple. Nice pin-up!!!
PRO- Decent overall anatomy...
PRO- Good hatching in most areas...
CON- The cut-off legs really lower the appeal of the piece.
CON- The weapon that he is holding is pretty under-drawn/underdeveloped. Not a lot of detail or straight lines happening there.
CON- The anatomy/structure of Cable's right hand is a little off (too rounded). It looks a tad swollen.
CON- Little to no line weight variation flattens the figure...
CON- Presentation is a tad low quality. Scanning vs digital photo issues not withstanding; always try to clean up a piece by erasing smudges or whiting out paper stains before presenting it. You have a few smudges that detract from the overall presentation.
Overall: Sound fundamentals that just need a little more time to create a really fun and detailed drawing!!!
Ekotek wins this one for me, but I really like the work that you both are doing. Thanks for sharing and please keep up the good art!!!
