Idk if u guys consider photo editing as a type of 'art" but i made this signature for the forums and opinions will be nice

It looks really cool dood! My one issue is that Samus' hair looks a little funky, but that's to be expected from this technique. Is it a technique? I don't really know, I suck at graphic design / art lol.

From a disatance, yeah it does. It you look closely you can see the hair above tree..
Not to be rude, but how closely do you expect people to look at your signature? Because other people may get the same impression i got. If I may be so bold, can i suggest that you use a different image other than battlefield? Perhaps FD. After all, The stage is bigger and would allow people to see the image of ZSS more clearly.
Just a suggestion.

This is an homage to all the many and wonderful stages of the Super Smash Bros. series, along with a nod to that first great Nintendo crossover, Captain N: The Game Master.

I did a random doodle. I like drawing in manga style, and a lot of people tell me that my art resembles the dbz style and im trying to make something that looks a little different from that. Crit would be nice.

Ah ok, cool.

I'm currently trying to make a render of Dark Matter from the Kirby series in Blender, so I would appreciate it if my work in progress render would be critiqued. I would also love some tips on making renders, if possible.

I would make the hair be a bit sharper, it kinda looks funny. I don't know a lot about 3d renders, but that looks pretty good so far.

I decided to do a Tetris picture to practice doing perspective and shading. Feel free to give thoughts on it if anyone still looks at this thread. It's in spoiler because the image is massive and I used Adobe Photoshop 2015.5 for this.

Unfortunately, the blocks themselves don't appear to line up very well, the blue and pink ones in particular. I suggest doing more rough sketches to get a better sense of how things look, if you didn't already. I'd recommend looking into some tutorial videos, I remember Mark Crilly on youtube has several videos about perspective and line of sight type things.

I'm useless at perspective stuff, I just go by instinct lol.




This is a thing I made last month, initially, it was completely different, was going to be a thumbnail for a youtube video, just two shades of blue with an image on it. Eventually I just started painting random things out of boredom because I couldn't decide what I wanted for video thumbnail.

EDIT: If someone could critique, I'd appreciate it.

Thank you! No legs on this one. I mainly did it as a wing study. I actually forgot I even made this lol.
Well its good.

Since your here an know about Z brush let me lay this on you, I've showed this around but yeah,

Oh about the girl up top she's Kalypso I'm using her for my new work portfolio to broaden my horizons. The idea is to do her up like :ultkrool:'s model but with a different outfit. She's only whew like 6% done at this point but I wanted to show off what I had.
Alright, gang made some progress.

If you want some lore on some of the choices I'll spill them freely.

What would you think a Tiny kong or Chunky redesign would look like?

Oh goodness! That looks really, really good so far. I don’t have much experience with doing full body meshes which is why I’ve been doing studies and stuff for practice.

I plan to do a 3D reference for a character I’ve had in my head for a while now but that’ll been when I feel more confident about doing it. Keep up the good work on your Kalypso model!

Thanks, and keep moving forward with 3D you've got a good handle on things. What you put in will come back ten-fold :)
