Junkboy, vad i helvete!

All of your pictures have this CRAZY kind of atmosphere to them. Like the 'comfortable girl in sunshine on ship deck'-picture, when I try to remember it, I remember it in full color.

Because, well, it's just ... colorful. Though it is in black and white. Completely wonderful.

Junkboy, I thought your images looked a lot like Miyazaki's style, which is a really great thing!  I found an image from the Nausicaa manga series to compare :)



I think that if you, like the others said, push the lineweight, you'd improve a lot.  GReat stuff ;D

Miyazaki's seems to emphasize shadows more, he has a lot more areas of really dense lines creating contrast, but yes, the styles do seem similar in some respects. Nausicaa is amazing, i loved the movie as well.

I've made some midis with "Midi Maker", thought I would post on here.

Most of them aren't complete tunes.

Oh and here is a compilation of two games I've programmed with Visual Basic;
Minesweeper and Tetris. The graphics are poor, sorry!

Those pieces don't have any cross-hatching.

Yes.
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

I think I saw him using it on Conan and the one with reptilian creature, probably I'm mistaken. If i remember correctly you have a lot of experience with hatching/cross hatching.
Do you have some rules when using it? like the directions of the lines or just do them randomly depending on the shadows. I'm currently studying some basic anatomy and want to apply this technique.

if you are learning anatomy, don't start with hatching and cross-hatching, it's really only for people who've gotten to an advanced understanding of the geometries.  Try regular blending or better yet cross-contour shading to begin with.  When you can sculpt a convincing form, then try cross-hatching.  fi you jump in too early it will just be a mess.

EDIT: the reason being that lines enhance forms, so if you don't already understand which way the forms are oriented, you'll end up creating forms you never intended, or worse - no forms at all (too many conflicting lines).
