Darkstalkers Tribute by gammon Darkstalkers Tribute by gammon
Finally you guys getta see my finished Darkstalkers Tribute piece! If you guys like this then you'll def' digg a lott'o the other works in there as well.

If you guys recall what I said about the last Tribute work from Udon, Korea yet again champions the book with a majority of the top submissions. They must have some excellent schools or strangely keen eyes for color. So look forward to that, amongst other cool stuff, if you haven't already picked it up.

Amazing! How do you paint your pictures? Manually or digital tablet?
gammon Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Lol, manually with a tablet. I use Photoshop CS5, tho any other version is just as effective.

Hmm... it's overall a great piece, but to be honest, the lineart seems a bit "off". A lil' too thick for a rather serious character style, making it a lil' "childish" at certain parts.

Other than that, Donovan's index finger looks a bit too curved, almost as if it's made out of rubber. And I dunno about BB Hood's face... Ok, she IS supposed to look like a maniac, and she certainly does... but at the same time, it looks more like a guy with a red hood, instead of a little girl.

For something you've been cooking for so long, I was honestly waiting for something better. Don't get me wrong, I still think it's a good work, and has a lot of strong points (Lilith's expression, Pyro's pose and prespective, Raptor looks as goofy as it should, etc.). But compared to other works of yours, I think you could've pulled it a bit more, specially considering the time you've been growing hype on it.

Still, don't take this as a negative comment, or anything. If I didn't like your works, I wouldn't have watched you, right? XD
gammon Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks for tha crit. I can see what you're saying about it bein' "childish" because of the line weight. I primarily did that to speed up the completion process. It allows for better visual continuity with a lesser value range. Goin' for a more graphic look than say something serious or hardcore.

Donovan's finger is straight 'effed but purposefully so, wanted to give some dynamism there. BB Hood definitely is pretty boy-like.

Tho' I didn't really realize I had been growing hype on this pic hah. Luckily not so much so that its completely underwhelming ha.
FontesMakua Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Well, "childish" was the first thing I could think of, at the time, and I had to leave in a hurry. XD

I know that such a lineart is a trait of your style, as it can be seen on other works of yours. But I dunno... This is my personal opinion, doesn't mean others won't like it. But to me, it's kinda like the lineart on this work is getting in some sort of conflict with the coloring, instead of entirely trying to blend in with it. Anyway, that's just how I see it...

About the finger... Maybe by grabbing the middle finger's knuckle, and "dragging" it a pit more towards the index, closing that gap between them a bit, might solve that one, with no need to "uncurve" the index finger. Though, now that you mentioned it, I can see what you were trying to do. ^^

about the hype thingy... well, who uploaded the teaser pic? XD
GIO2286 Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2009
i must say i don't agree with you. if he chose to make his outline thicker it's for a reason. Something you should try to understand about artist's style or to make something have more expression and feeling in to it to get the message across or show that character's personality. The piece is great in the overall, in drawing, design, colors, if there's any details it shouldn't bother as long as the overall look it's good and solid. don't mean to sound like a douche, but better check yourself before you point out small stuff like that to others, what i mean is if you're going to make that kind of critics, your skills better do the talk your preaching as well...
FontesMakua Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Well... first of all, I know I need a lot of improvement myself, and I'm perfectly able to notice my own flaws. And so, I'm also able to give tips to other artists, either better or worse than me. No one is perfect, but all the small things we could do to achieve a better result, when joined together, make a big difference.

Second... I apologise for saying this but I think that the "if you can't do better, then your opinion is invalid" is possibly the WORST argument someone can use in an art discussion, or any other type of discussion. Can I do better than that? Not with my current skill level, that is certain. But does that mean I'm not able to see things that could be improved, or could achieve more interesting results if done in a different way?

I'll that if a random highly-renown artist came in and said the EXACT SAME things I said, you'd agree... -_-
GIO2286 Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2009
haha well.. you still don't get the point...
