over 100 views and no reply... :rolleyes:
Anyway I think it looks great especially after seeing the sketch that you worked on (there's almost no depth in the sketch it seems). I really like the look you got for the background wall and the guy's skin but i'm not too thrilled with the blood. It could be because it lacks the outline that's prevelant on every other part of the piece. Anyways i think you did a great job and definitely added to the 'feel' of the piece. :thumbsup: BTW what happened to the tissue box?

Unfortunatly w/ the blood it was hard to show that it was blood in the lighting condition. So i added a little more hue to it. I do agree that it didnt come out the way i wanted, but its alright. (In future this is where the cioncept paintings come into use.)

I dished the tissue box because there was already to much going on in the scene. In the scetch it fit great, but w/ my color scheme i didnt feel it had miportance plus i feel that the focal point was the guy and the blood, not a little tissue box.

Thanks for the comments.

i rekon it looks pretty cool, but at first i thought the blood was on the wall behind him... maybe some shadow on the walls if the light is right?

nice work tho :)

nice work, it's a shame the author didn't do it himself! (this is amazingly good though!):thumbsup:

07 July 2003, 10:03 PM
oops, never mind about the sketch I see it. I need to start paying more attention

you shouldnt utter his name ...

considering the sketch you had as a start, you pulled off some amazing work, bringing depth and light sources to the painting, at a very believable level

quality work :thumbsup:

Thank you very much. Thinking back i kind of wish i didnt do this sketch because it didnt have alot of depth to it. Eh we learn from our mistakes right?

I really like this. I like the style a lot, and the colours are cool too. The only things that kinda bug me a little are the reflections in his glasses (which are perhaps a little too strong/bold), and the blood (which just looks a bit... weird).

But then again, they kinda add a whimsical and strange element to the image.

I think you did a lot of justice to the sketch - surpassed it, actually. Really cool piece of work :thumbsup:

Thank you, unfortunatly i realized that with my lighting scheme that the reflections on the goggles wouldnt be the way they appear to be. I thought to put a reflection of the body that he was working on, but that would be far to clutered for that area.

I would also like to clear up the blood issue. Unfortunatly i also dont care for it, but with the other people who tried to paint this they modified the picture beyond the style of the original drawing. I wanted to keep everythign intact as if i was nu-able to change it. (nice lessons for when i get out into the real world)

BTW. I just updated it a bit, nothing huge, just a couple touches here and there. Nothing anybody but myself would notice.

Again i thank you all for the comments.
