OCD (Open Critique Day) #25

How this goes:  You post a work of yours, finished or WIP, and then others give you critiques on your work. I do not mind if you post non-HM pictures or piece of writing. Just make sure that you only post pictures that are your own design and not any that are copyrighted or based off of copyrighted characters. 

Also, if you post a work, it is highly recommended that you also give someone else a critique.

    I don’t have all the special websites to be able to shade my characters so this is the best I got… Hope you like

    That’s cool. The one thing I would recommend would be to use some more color variation. Also, the shading is actually done in heromachine. It’s pretty simple, but it can get kind of complicated when you try getting into things like AMS, djuby, Anarachangle, and stuff like that. But the basic concept itself is pretty simple.

    To satisfy my own OCD:
    @ Mason Kuiper You should really join the forums. There are lots of usefull tutorials. You may have to dig a little though. To sum up shading I’m gonna attempt to make it simple… best I can through blog jargon. Here goes.

    Most people use this piece to shade. (see below link)

    It looks like this when colored:

    With 1. having color parameters like this:

    and 2. having these values set:
    Being sure to turn the “alpha:” for the #1 color to 0%

    Use this piece to highlight certain areas by making the secondary color a little or a lot lighter/darker than the base color of the item you wish to shade. I hope this helps.

    And, I might want to change the scale on the gun, in that one… Unless it’s supposed to be a plastic squirt gun he picked up? {You never know these things…} Oh, and was he supposed to be named “ApokoLISP”, or were you thinking of “ApocaLYPSE”? 😉

  8. Arioch says:

    Nice character. Whitout doing any shading, I’d just put slightly different colors here and there, so that the different elements show more, like the sword belt (Ah, yes, that’s what Hawk007 meant by “more color variation”, my bad). Same thing with the background.
    Also, maybe, angle the back arms differently so they feel more “alive”?
