    Exactly

    I only saw that it was the same eye, but rather than specify eyes I said you shouldn't mirror anything, because you shouldn't!

    it might be handy to point one in the direction of how one can create more depth and fix the perspective? i know that might take an extra minute of typing though

    The only thing that was flipped were his eyes. I was too lazy to draw the left eye myself so I cheated.
    Make them look in the same direction, right now they are ever so slightly different.

    My attempt at making a background for an animated series.

    The perspective lines are a bit wobbly and lead all over the place, making it look a bit flat once you look away from the ladder.
    I do rather like the idea of a vehicle that has a ladder leading down to its cockpit though.

    It was originally a draft for a complex design i wanted to re-draw on a wall of my room.

    I liked it a lot, so i scanned it and gave it a rough coloring/shadows.

    i wanted to upload it in original resolution (around 3000X6000) for anyone who wants it, but it seems to have been resized.

    Trying a different approach - sketching on paper then defining values and getting composition sorted before heading into colour.




    I'm also starting to put white/black borders around my work to remind me of just how dark I can really go to get me to really push the values

    That looks like it's on the way to having a bit of emotion and impact Mal

    To be honest I've yet to see that from any of your digital work, keep going with this approach

    Honestly I liked the second one better when it was hollow and not bleeding, the sharp negative space between the halves was good

    HA 12 hours wasted doing other things... so not wasted. Also it's an experiment. You people are nutty about judging others time while you waste your own judging. (Can't wait to be judged for saying this)

    I did a perspective piece on the Chernobyl tombstone for school (Unfortunately the school took it) I suggest using perspective, mainly 3-point. You'll never regret it. Be prepared to fuck up 3 times before understanding how it works though.

    For example, This is my 4th triple perspective piece. (Notice how it's not quite right, but still looks better than if I'd eyed it)

    This was going to be a just simple study, but then I realized that I'm tired of studies, so I desided to turn it into something more interesting

    I like hi-techy tacticool things too much, I guess.

    Yup, i sure screwed up the perspective. Do you have some suggestion on how to make good perspectives for indoors?

    On a sidenote, this is the cockpit of this mech:

    reminds me of MaryDoodles. For all of you who don't know who that is, she's a watercolor painter on YouTube. She has a lot of cutesy but realistic watercolor paintings of animals.
