Heading out with nothing but his dad's old army issue, one action colt revolver, and some small change, enough for a few bullets, Jerome Harold Lee went to the West to find his fortune, and earn his nickname "Rusty"

You'll never believe what Dorothy found in the darker woods of Oz...
Cut for mild nudity:
Photoshop CS - 'bout an hour...

however, the story goes; this is an arabian prince...come to present the sacred rusty sword to the shamman. The sword's rust isn't cleaned because the blood of enemies is on it, and it must stay.
For the record, i had no love for this one. Fought through it... my wife said 'looks good, keep going'. Bleh.
Hamsta -- good job. Loved how you ran up to the nick name 'rusty' ...the whole time, i thought the gun might be the rusty thing.
Neepa - that freaks me out. wtf is that?? man. childhood stories gone to hell and back. ;)
Crazy3dman - like to see that with some harsher darks and brighter highlights...and maybe some rust texture; i like the flattish look to it.
MachZero - I can definitely see the rust on there. great proportions, really; so hard to put someone on a bike like that. I've tried... brutal. Your edges seem a little fuzzy to me...any way to chisel em out? There's a softness to your images...works in some cases, works against in others...be nice to get some hard edges.

Well I was thinking of the tin man from The Wizard of Oz and how he rusted over. Wanted to give it a darker edge ;D

sheldon - you tried physically posing someone on a bike like that and it was brutal? Was working fast on it, slightly over and hour, and that included the bike design. Left it as a rough sketch and the original pic isn't that large either.
btw, are you using the dodge tool? Or are the colours that saturated on purpose? Tried painting above the lineart?

Hooray for good ol' fashioned colored pencils.
(mostly because I lack access to all these fancy newfangled computer programs like photoshop :[ )

set in the distant post-apocalyptic future. humanity has whiped itself out, but their war machines endlessly roam the planet still, following their search and destroy programs.

sheldon > like your work, however, go easy on the color dodge/burn tools (actually, avoid their use all-together) . It was actually not until I saw your line-art that I noticed the sword in his hands (yeah, I always scroll bottom-up ^_^; ) .

Ok, so i used only a little tiny bit of colour dodge for the metalic sheen...the rest is just colours. Love for someone to do an overpaint on my inks to help me out...but here's me experimenting...
Pencils on paper (not inks!):
Now onto today's dsg....

Sheldon Your Arabian pic is resfusing to load for some reason, although I've seen both of them earlier. Are you using the dodge/burn tools? this usually isn't a good practice as I read. All I remember from the Arabian, is that the composition wasn't that great, I'd look for an interesting crop.
I can't decide if the robot needs more contrast from the bg, or if it's nice how you lifted it from the bg color...
The mechanical bits in it's shoulder are flat, but I like how the eyes stand out so much.

Well sheldon, tried a repaint of your rusty.... however I believe m monitor's gamma setting is f*cked up, with the result of the picture being much lighter than intended ...
lemme know what you think ...
