    I drew a Penciljack (well sort of ). It sucks though, and you know if I went through all the trouble of posting it people would just say "She's in her 30s and sucks as an artist therefore she'll never be one."
    But I don't have any desire to be one, not really, so there, stick it up yer tailpipe haters.

    Funny you guys should mention that. I thought about that while I was drawing it. There are so many gifted artist here, I bet it would be fun.

    Totally! It would be super cool to see a few people's take on the Penciljack logo, which, by the way, it is an awesome logo in it's own right.

    Ha! No problem. I am sure that extra careful eye also checked out the lead. Thanks! You are probably right about the blur on the pencils. I did try to put the motion blur on the pencils, but it fought with the lines in the background. Anyway, I guess I will have to keep pluggin' away at it. Thanks again for all the input. It does help.

    LOL I looked EXTRA close to make sure I don't come up with false copy & paste accuses , hahaha. I noticed that the zig-zag lines (at the tip where the paint stops and the wood starts) seemed to come in only two flavours
    Of course no need to defend anything, as you said it's just what I see and I am probably as surprised as you, learning you did not use any filters. Funny, in parts it's like you simulated those then
    Anyways, great pencil work here and I change my comment then to "You've overdone the blurring of the flying pencils"
    (maybe you should have used a motion blurr here, or speedlines or anything to indicate motion of the pencils)

    Regards,
    Sven

    Thanks for taking the time to comment everyone. I appreciate the kind words and comments!

    Kopone: Wow! Thanks for taking the time to let me know your thoughts. You make some valid points that I will definitely think about next time. It is interesting because you are just telling me what you see. What is funny though, is that for the background, it is all brushes and no filters. The only thing blurred are the pencils which you thought were copy and pasted.

    These are the original pencils:



    I am not necessarily trying to defend my work. You do have some great points. I find Art so interesting. It is all about perception. I always like hearing what people get out of it. Thanks again for the critique. I will keep practicing.

    Wo-Nellie: That is a good question? I just saw the picture up top and went with that. However, I did enjoy Fatmancomics explaination of PJack.

    Thanks again for looking everyone.

    Hmmm, are there any other references of Penciljack other than the one in the top left-hand corner of our screens? Just curious.

    That's what I always took it to be, as well. I guess you could call this "artistic license."

    Not too bad. I agree with Kapone's points.

    Heehehe, nice one I like the pencil guy and his expression, the color scheme is also pretty nice and works perfectly well. The texture on the pencil tip is great, as well as on the rubber end.,
    The fact that the pens follow a different vanishing point (his hand) than your background lightray effect (the pic's center) is a little disturbing to me, since it makes particularly the pens in the top middle look somewhat out of perspective. On the other hand, aligning both v.points would probably make it rather boring (might be worth a try) so I can't really come up with any proposal...just wanted to say it bugs me I guess
    His right arm looks - taking foreshorting of the left one into account - less muscular to me.
    That's all just nitpicks though, and there is only two things that in my book really dont add to the picture. For one, that cloudish lightning texture in the background that seems it had to bear some motion blur just looks cheap to me. It just says "Photoshop filter" and nothing like "artistic effort".
    The other thing is the flying pens. It seems you only drew one or two and used copy and transform to fill the pic. It's why each one has a different blurriness due to different scaling and it shows at a first glance already.
    Don't get me wrong, I dont mean to sound rude but honest. Still a great pic, I'd give 8 out of 10 and the two cents I just gave

    Regards,
    Sven
