- You're- wow. You're talented. I don't really have critique, just praise. I think you could've used a different material other than paint in the Pency artwork, maybe oil pastel? Much more blendable.
But really. You're talented as fuck.

(#) nerds_assemble 2013-01-13It's really quite awesome, but one thing that I know helps me is this: looser.
If you're more carefree with where your lines go, it results in better things...usually.
Like, sometimes, I just draw in one continuous line to see what I can come up with.
I'd give you a better example, but here's one I've done:
The scanner kind of killed the colors, but I find it helps to do perspective and more faded colors.
It just helps to do an array of shit. :P Like, just drawing people in the most random of poses. And to get you even more out of your comfort zone, try having someone pose for you for ten seconds and do gesture drawings.
Those are unbelievably helpful. You end up filling pages with fast sketches and it's so helpful. AND FUN!
Just, to me, your art seems a little strict. It's really quite amazing, but it's still a little tight and if you think something would look better somewhere else, even if you're drawing a CD cover, just put it where it'd look better.
Other than that, your stuff is awesome. :D Please do keep us updated on your art.
