Did a sketch on monday of a skull & gasmask combo....its looked cool so i spent a few more hours and here is the result

as for the whole tie thing....well the poor junk-bot just wants to fit in and look as smart as the rest of man kind

i really didnt want much colour in this at all so that the tie could stand out amonst the dark chest area.

also didnt work too much on the background, wanted more focus on the character.

ok enough ranting

a very good work! original and disquieting idea!!

a very good accomplishment: very good details in the head and good detail the reflected light of the red necktie!:applause:

I like the scenery, less defined, creating depth:thumbsup:

very nice, but one critique. you should add a very light highlight to the left( our left ) shoulder pad to separate it from the background colours., or a darker shadow between the rock in the background and the shoulderpad.

also try to stay consistent with light. some of the bottom pieces have blue highlights, but the objects around the head do not.
they could also help bring the back of the head out from the background.

keep kicking ass!

Not much for me to say, other than great character, and great image! :buttrock:

I'm sure a few people weren't expecting this when they clicked on the thread title! Congratulations on the front page, BTW.

Hi.. first of all AWESOME work !! :beer:

I only have one thing to critique and maybe its just me being weird... but still my eyes seem to get cut on this spot.

maybe its just a bit too dark around the edges I just fell like it falls a bit out of style.

purty cool work. I like it when a what was only supposed to be a doodle or a sketch ends up being a full piece.
good stuff :arteest:

I have to agree... theres somthing about those that dont seem to flow with the image.. unfortunatly I can't think of why though :annoyed: perhaps the indent around it is too wide, so it draws the eye? In my very humble opinion.. I would suggest removing them.... sorry if thats overstepping my critique line....

My major plus with your image is the depth you portrayed on the mask.. very well done color usage.. :buttrock:

excelent work i like the colours but the trick with the tie seems too obvious and out of place , it reminds me of movie Avalon, and I would certainly make it in a darker apocalyptic mood:applause:

Holy......

Well... It's yet ANOTHER one of those depressing/inspiring moments on CGTalk for me...

On one hand I wanna go grab a brush and have some fun. On the other, I wanna curl up and die, cos I'll never be that good.

Makes you wonder doesn't it. With work THIS good you should be making an absolute fortune. There are so many crap artists out there making fortunes. The way of the world....

Keep it up. Nothing else to say!

hey alex, i dont think you need to go anywhere to curl up and die, i just checked out your website. some pretty cool stuff you have there! whats worse is , you are younger than me. hehe!

I wasn't expecting that!

Thanks a lot man. Appreciate it.

Just visited your site as well... some VERY nice work there too. Especially that white GI character.

Oh, and lol, yeh i might be younger, but that makes me more nieve ;] (probably spelled wrong for added irony).

Cheers ;]

Lets keep my praise for my own thread lol. This is Daniel's moment!

Though i must confess, pink tie, with purple poka-dots, you cant go wrong there... but i guess yur choice in color will suffice ;p

Really cool.
I agree with the lighting-issue.

Its still one of the best 2D-Artworks Ive seen here so far.

Great Job... Id love to model him in 3D. :rolleyes:

nice work

I definitely agree. The tie adds a great sense of irony and humor. It's out of place and seems ludacris in such a mecha word, but that's what makes the piece I think. (:

Great job.

Love it, that's all I can say, it's different and fun, I would have to go with Ambient on the light tho, but that's basically it.
