Currently waiting on a class to start, but I improved the wings. I'll post the variations soon and tell me if certain things should be thicker, thinner, inverted, etc. Yay critiques!

Would you rather it look more like the Batman symbol wings or are these what you were going for?

if I get a vote, it's the second row from the bottom (so the first row with 2), on the right.

black wings, truncated bottom, symbol on hood

Very nice variations. I'd pick either the same one as Cheese or the one at the very bottom or top left. Say something about this, Stabguy.

I expected some more feedback. Should I just go with the ones you guys liked? If so, which one would be the best option?

Hmm. Can we have a few more variations with a rounded bottom? I was hoping Stabguy would respond since the idea was for his Easter Egg video (too good for this? I see the way it is.)

I just got a scanner, so now I can upload HD versions of my preferred medium: hand drawn pen/pencil. Expect more of that! I'd upload my first scanned artwork, but it has nudity (kind of). Gotta keep this site clean!!

That's the Red Hood (aka Jason Todd) isn't it?

Nicely drawn! Under the Red Hood is one of my favorite animated movies.

Yes it is! Thank you for noticing! And yes, that's actually a fantastic movie. One of the best DC Animated films in my opinion.

What gets me every time is the knowledge that he considers each Robin as his own son, which makes that tale more heartbreaking.

I sketched out some images of an original character of mine. The top is my own art style and the bottom is in the style of the legendary Bruce Timm (responsible for the classic Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League cartoons, Batman Beyond, and more). I've always said I take a piece from each artist that I've idolized as a kid, so I wanted to test that out and see if I could recreate one of theirs.

It's crazy how different a person's taste and way of doing things can be. I pretty much used the shows and movies this man helped create as a bible into how I'd see these heroes move and act. I used to have tons of coloring books and comic versions of stories from the shows based on his art style and trace them (very crudely, but then again I was like 6 years old). This dude made Superman awesome to me. He made sure that the invincible Kryptonian god was treated more realistically (dampening his power levels so that even minor villains could at least give him a challenge longer than one minute) and respectfully.

I wanted to share these because I'm honestly very proud of how they turned out. I almost always hate my own work for one minor reason or another, so that's saying a lot.

actually, not (completely) being a jackass here...

it would probably be a fun exercise to draw the same guy in the same pose full body shot 8 times from 45° angles from eachother. then you could stitch them together to make it look like he's rotating... then fill in 8 more... then 16 more... and at that point you might be buttery smooth.

the first 8 would look something like:

start small and defined and the problem is a lot easier than "1000 different images"

I just noticed that you guys had a conversation in 2014 and asked for my opinion several times. Sorry I wasn't involved. Assassin Art is one of the forum topics I don't always follow and my name seldom comes up here.

I've been thinking about reviving the AC2 Easter Egg video lately. If/when that happens I will reach out to Joey for a "bat signal".

Cool. The eyes look off to me and I don't know why. Maybe with some lighting/glow on the adjacent features they'd look more real, for lack of a better word.

I always enjoy seeing talents that I am not even close to possessing. Keep up the good work!

Good point. I think the eyes aren't quite level, actually. I'll have to try and align them a little better.

Thank you for the feedback!

Looks really good, very different from the stuff you've posted before, too. Smile
I like the atmosphere of this one a lot, it's thick and powerful. What McStab and you both said about the eyes seems to ring true, but everything else is enjoyable.

Hands are one of my least favorite things to draw. I'm currently creating my comic for a class (just the first issue) and was super proud of this shot. It's just a hand holding a small piece of paper up, but I've come a long way with hands in the past few months. It's a big deal for me, guys!

Looks great! I don't think I'll ever be able to improve on drawing hands. I still make them look like everyone is wearing misformed baseball gloves.

Since I'm finally free from classes for a bit, send requests for stuff you'd like to see! Either in my art style or just because it's a cool image.
