Character : My Red Tie



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!

I like the scenery, less defined, creating depth

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!

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 !!

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.

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..
