Re: Spectral Knight Learns to Draw

I was a bit exaggerating. In Photoimpact, which I use, you can draw lines too, and also have differnt Setting for thickness of the lines or it being pencil, crayon, etc. (After all that's how I made the suggestions to your pics above) There even is a curve setting, but I don't know how to operate th...

Re: Spectral Knight Learns to Draw

Lol, I know None of these programms, I did it all by marking outlines of areas by tracing them with my mouse. In other news, I overworked the Polaris costume design last night. It looks much better with the belt slimmer and lower. I also tried ending the costume's top part in a metal ring around the...

Re: Spectral Knight Learns to Draw

This is also one big advantage for digital inking. You can scan the picture at a high resolution and even further increase how you view it when applying ink strokes or just when marking areas as black or white.

Re: Spectral Knight Learns to Draw

I'm not sure it should be completely rounded - there's actually quite a bit of a sharpness to the knee, especially for toned athletes That sharpness may show in a stretched knee (correct term?, I mean the opposite of a bent knee), like when standing up straight on the leg, as then the kneecap is pu...

Re: Marvelous Comics Draft - Re-Inventing Round 9

That's a great New ID pick, Eph ! With all these hate and chaos going on at the moment, it would be a kind of goodwill and love if players could swap one transfer character with each other in this round too. Black Cat <——-> Black Panther, for example Nice try, but no... especially not in this case, ...

Re: Marvelous Comics Draft - Re-Inventing Round 9

Round IX is the "New Identity" round. In this round you can bring in nearly any Marvel character you want by making use of one of the 94 remaining codenames on the list. This can be an imposter scenario (Skrullverine), a case of some other character having used the same codename (Jim Hammond as Huma...

Re: Marvelous Comics Draft - Transfer Round 8

That wraps up the Transfers, and as said before, most of you played nice and really tried to find charactes that would work with either player you were potentially transferring too. Someone really dodged a bullet, though, and I'm in good faith that token can make his "gift" work somehow. :-) Ephemer...

As for whether that jinxed it or not, ... I can only tell you that neither one of the two posters who had your name dared transfer-picking Howard the Duck (as you would have deserved) out of fear they might end up with the other potential recipient. Based on the transfer picks that are already in, I...

Re: Marvelous Comics Draft - Transfer Round 8

Beast included, this is the fifth cat-themed character in the Transfer round. One might think that Gibbering Fool picked the entire litter. :-) Anyway, we still have to wait for Martijn and Ephemerist to make their picks before you all learn which cat ended up on your roster.

Re: Spectral Knight Learns to Draw

That ellbow is now much closer to accurate. The coloring itself is good, and for some reason especially the Briefs look quite goos with inks and colors. I'd like to suggest a much darker tone for the exposed skin area of his face, though, given that his forehead, his raised arm and chest are all in ...

Re: Disney + Rewatch: X-Men: TAS

So, I finally got around to watch the rest of season 4 and 5. The stories got better again, and they seemed to use more characters again, or at least find a better balance between team episodes and individual ones. Beyond Good and Evil had guest stars and cameos galore, but I found the plot weaker t...

I'm not sure my own posing would be right, especially with slender models, as the timber I'm carrying means muscular structure is probably a bit more concealed than on Matt Murdick's frame! Nonsense, I'm struggling with my weight myself. Currently hav...

Re: Marvelous Comics Draft - Transfer Round 8

That's an awesome drawing of Puma!

And with that, you guys have reduced the character list by fifty percent. 100 of 200 listed characters have been picked, but there's still four and a half rounds to go. Moving on with "tokenFool"

Re: Spectral Knight Learns to Draw

Well, maybe something to consider for the next drawing exercises then. :-) Let's start with the good: a) the character is immediately recognizeable. b) this is a motion pose, and that motion absolutely comes across c) the joints are (relatively speaking) in the right places. The ellbows are in the m...

Lavettye in all his wisdom chooses whom of us gets Thundra. Well, I'm not going t decide either. At the end of this round I'll be using a random number generator like this to determine which set of transfer recipients to apply. Odd - and they all go to the first person in your PMs, even - and they ...

I'm picking this character purely on the ridiculousness of the name...and that was before I saw the barnet.

Who doesn't want a Slag (really?!) on their team?!

Re: Marvelous Comics Draft - Transfer Round 8

I see now reason to hold up the start of Round VIII, as it's the Trandfer Round and you aren't picking for yorself, so the order of when someone gets a character is already screwed up. So - Round VIII starts right away with Sequoia and Spectral Knight. When you post your Transfer pick, it's up to yo...

The colors are awesome - especially the light effect on the hair and the cape, and the lightning bolts themselves too. It's not just their coloring, but also how you positioned them, with a bigger bundle of bolts around the hammer and the big hand, covering some lines, but leaving enough to understa...
