I guess I'll take it. I should've just made a new thread, bah!
If it's about the chin, however, I already know. That's one of the spots I see major problems with, but I would guess your critique might be more on color usage?

Anyways, enough speculation! On with it!

That is going to be one hella tough habit to break! ):
I'll try it out when I start something new, however.

Side note: I just noticed that the picture was broken, so I upped a new one in case you missed it. (Edited the initial post it was in).

Bah. The stream isn't loading right (or gamevideos, for matter) at all, for me. Why do they have to make these needlessly huge video files? 500 megabytes, just for SF footage.

Better be good.

EDIT: Youtube for those who are impatient, like myself:
It looks... okay. Definitely doesn't give off a 3D feel, but, eh. Everything has a really plastic look to it.

Hm... thanks for that, eck! I'd like to say that I also take notice of the face issues and have already tweaked it a bit since this one (chin was too far out, for example).

As far as colors go, I'll say for now that I was planning on upping it to 16 whenever I start doing final touches. On the color choices themselves, there's nothing I can really say. It's a mixture of instinct and ritualistic decision-making on my part. I'll take the palette you've created for a test run and see how I like it, though! I've been told about having issues with contrasting colors before, so you're definitely not the first.


Not exactly a doodle, but I'm not looking for hardcore critique as typical of a new thread. It's something I started working on today as an entry for the April Fool's weekly challenge (this weeks' challenge is a 'catch-up' challenge with all previous challenges as fair game) at PJ, but I think it stands on its own by now. Initially inspired by some of Helm's work.

A bunch of new shots from Street Fighter IV..
Apparently we'll get to see it in motion on the 1up show tommorrow, I'm guessing they'll just show Ryu VS Ken though (even if it would be interesting to see some of the other characters).
Yeah, I really need to see this in motion at this point. Final judgment on the graphics for me happens then. The shots are extremely inconsistent in quality (in my 3D knowledge-lacking eyes) otherwise.

OpenCanvas 1.2 is freely available in some form, and is supposed to be pretty great for this sort of thing!
and khris, try
it's not even as good as mspaint, but it's fun if you just wanna scribble stuff with other people in real time
Thanks for the tool suggestions! Though, I was mainly curious if any of you guys would be interested in forming the 'online sketch group' that I mentioned in the post.  :P

Hm, The Orange Box, eh? I'm not sure my little ol' laptop could even handle it!

On a completely unrelated note, do any of you guys use the few apps out there that let you draw online with other people? For the longest time I was trying to assemble a sketch group in my area, but the interest just wasn't there. So, I'm thinking... an online sketch group is the next best thing? I think, for myself at least, it would be a really awesome way to get motivated about drawing whenever you're in a slump.

What say you folks?

This is for Nitram, because I know he absolutely loves Inuyasha.

I got 95 dollars. I have a few ideas of what I might possibly get.

A scanner? Promotion? Gamestuffs? Oh dear.

Xion: Ah, it's quite a relief to find out that you liked them! Glad you do, as they were hella fun to work on.
