Nice stuff Dex. Hehe it's funny how much that landscape reminds me of your pixelled landscapes. Very similar techniques going on.


Pistachio, 40min really? That looks like 4min. I can barely tell it's a landscape at the moment. Take a 1px pencil to that!

I decided to draw one Dark Souls character on this piece for each 10 deaths. Now at a point where I'm not sure when it should be called done.

What? I guess I don't know what game/movie/thing this draws from.



I really like it. Very partial to collage type drawings like this.

Some crit:

-No focal point weakens overall impact
-Woman in white feels dissonant because she differs from everything else. It's as if she's trying to be the focus of all this but she crowded in like everyone else.
-There are parts with much more polish than other parts. This alone renders the image "unfinished", IMO.
-The obvious color mode painting is very digitally tell-tale (heads of bottom-left ghouls, chin of bottom-right snake/dragon, etc)
-Palette is tastefully muted except for certain parts, which gives the impression of lack of control while painting (snake/dragon's green color, ghouls' deeper blues, etc)
-Top-middle mega knight looks more like he has a shrunken head than foreshortened and towering over everyone.


Really fun to look at.

you really should play Dark Souls. It's the best game of the decade.

The top knight does have a tiny head in the game too. The rest of your critique stands. Give the woman in the middle a warm palette and she'll pop out.

Looked it up.

Stunning.

I get it now - "I decided to draw one Dark Souls character on this piece for each 10 deaths" - Dying is literally an intended game mechanic. Awesome.

Tried to address the issues. It was really relieving to paint in just black and white, but it makes adding hues really difficult. So B&W painting really just postpones the inevitable struggle with color.

I finally decided to really play around with a tablet I got for Christmas, and I must say, tablets are awesome!

Now I need rest before I finish this picture... I'm very afraid of tackling the hair.
