Painting I did in my painting class. Not that satisfied with it, but I figure that most of the people who see it will appreciate it for the joke, and I really shouldn't waste any more time on it, so I decided to chalk it up to experience and just declare it finished:



I won't pretend to know really anything about guitars or what they should look like; I just sort of drew it from memory when I sketched everything out. Also, I realize that Scyther would have been a way better choice than Squirtle in just about every way, and I realize that I anthropomorphized Parasect way more poorly than I could have, and I know that the background is retardedly over-saturated.

   I'd say this is about 60-70% done. I decided to go a little more with P"toe"'s idea, with more emphasis on the "tooth" concept. Any other suggestions, or better yet crits?

since you said you werent going to finish it, i was asking if i could work on it a it.  but thats fine.

critique:

-the highlights on his lips need to more similar of a tone, as they are a bit hard to make out as they are. 
-there needs to be more of a higlight along the bridge of his nose and along his forhead.  his eyes need those white dot things that make em look real.
-his nose needs to be curved in slightly twards the middle
- he needs another nostril.  i think i can see where you tried to put it, but it needs to be a bit more visible, because his face looks a bit uneven to me.
- his lips are off center, and need to be moved to (our) right a bit.
-there needs to be another transition color (the violet color) on (his) right cheek

hmm

-if the words are in english or using english charicters, it isnt very legible.
untz untz untz?

I didn't say I wasn't going to finish it, I said I wasn't going to pixel it. It's finished, it's just not pixel art.

Thank you for your critique, though I disagree a lot with most of what you say this needs. The text is in greek.

Yeah, I actually would have to partually disagree to eck's critique.
But I think how you put the colours in the piece is stunning!

But I dont understand the 3 slashes by the guys jaw. O well.

Nice piece  :y:

I'd say the slashes are fingers.

It's not a face, it's a mask, right Helm?

I removed it, sorry...

It's a mask yeah. And what, you couldn't resist editing and posting a piece of artwork when specifically asked not to?

people, it seems a lot like helm is pretty happy with this the way it is. and critiques are quite pointless because he doesn't plan on changing it.

and though that makes posting it on a forum pretty pointless, i guess it's just a waste when you've worked on a piece of art, and no-one gets to see it. not that he's just posted it here looking for compliments.

my point is. you dont just fiddle with finished artwork in a gallery. so you shouldn't here either.
