Long time no ART! whats up folks?


I HAVE UPDATED THE IMAGE!!!
Well I decided to expand on my Incomparable Power deviation and make it into a series. Here is No. 2 in the series.

Tech Specs:

Photo: by me, its a photo of my best friend... he's got an 8 pack!
Programs: 100% PS CS2
Time: About 3 or 4 hours
Layers: no clue


I have a feeling that I am not completely done with this yet, there is something that is missing still. So I would deeply appreciate some constructive criticism!

I give my permission for *Manipulators to post this in their gallery.

Thanks,
GB

Perhaps the missing element, if you haven't happened to have found it yet, is something as simple as what the charge is aimed at.
Right now, though the picture is spectacular, when looked at in context, it looks like he's just doing it for the hell of it. "Hey! Look at me!" Which would be expected, due to what he's doing. However...maybe if there were something off to the side? Maybe even just a shadow (or hint) of something?

That's it for my superficial criticism. Great job.

Hoodimann Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2007
Hmm...there's not a lot of room left at the right side of the picture, and you don't really want to extend the boundaries of the shot.

I will offer the meager suggestions which I can.

1. Perhaps a portion of a shadow of something/someone. :ninjabattle:
2. Perhaps an onlooker (or crowd/creature/enemy), could merely be staring at him in awe. :clap:
3. Perhaps George Bush and Dick Cheney? :rofl:

Your picture is beautiful. I understand about tweaking too much, and I also understand about having too much in the picture. Therefore, my original suggestion is sort of asinine, and I hope that unless something actually hits you like a ton of bricks, you won't mess with what you've got. ("If it ain't broke, don't fix it!") Well, it ain't broke. My imagination is not so withered that I can't provide whatever I want as a target for the charge.

Take most precious care.

Hoodi.

A cool image, but i find your model lacks facial expression, perhaps and angry face, or screaming or some-such.

thank you very much my faithfull fan! ;)
I'm doing good, it's just i've been really busy with life in general and have never had any inspiration for a new work of art. Finally I have found some time and inspiration! ;) And yeah, I haven't had any new works in several months at least... I am working on one or two more in the same series and then afterwards I might move on to something new...

sincerely.
