Then you might want to try a little harder to come up with original designs...

You seem to have some experience c:
Are these all traditional or are some mixed media?

If you would like to hear some critiques I'd be glad to give some.

I'm sorry, but you really, really don't. If your work can be mistaken for a modern take on a crappy 90's cartoon that was already terrible to begin with, it probably needs improvement.

We really need a second Picture Post forum. One for people who actually want critique, and one for people who are just fishing for praise.

Or i can just focus on drawing out any new ideas that popup in m head lik i have been, and you can give me some actualy criticism. saying "OH DIS LOOKS LIKE THIS" isnt criticism. and if i wanted praise i would have posted this on facebook. if your not gonna help me mak emy pictures look better, please refrain from posting

The first one has decent use, of shading and an, attempt at texture. The proportion of the figure is off, which, if the style was consistent to the background it wouldn't have come off weird. Instead it appears as a fantastic surrealist abstraction in the background with a cartoonish abstraction as the emphasis.


The second one has minor proportion issues, however they're barely noticeable due too the the fact the figures legs vanish mid way into scribbles. While this can work for certain techniques this figure was too clean to have such a dirty space. The lead off moves the area of focus from the face and distracts the viewer.


The third one employs extra attention to the inking nd Congress off as a decent profile. Minor proportion issues.

For the second one, frame your pictures before you do then. If you make a border, you can do proportions better, and you don't have vanishing legs. It's very distracting to the visual path.
Proportions aren't my strong suit either. I'm still balls deep in a class teaching how to do it.

I'm an art major. Criticism is 90% of my classes. Make a piece, critique it, have others critique it, have the teachers critique it.

then do it in the next class. So I've been known to dabble in doodling
