Shucks, said he. (Cyber punk-2nd progress)

on: March 12, 2006, 01:16:59 am

My take on a can of whoopass. Yes, influenced by those old laser gun figures, forgot who made them. Just a little practice. 15 colors.

Comments are appreciated, as are edits :)

Zoomed up. Appears to be solid. No glaring mistakes.
Looks cool. Good job. :D

The hue rotation on that gun flare is sweeet. The gun could use a bit more form definition, kind of hard to make out it's volume. Same thing for the guy himself, he's a bit undefined. Maybe more difference between values (colors' brightness)?

It's the head i think,
Could use a few darker tones to deifne the facial expression especially.

I'm envisioning it being a literal huge can or a cucumber actualy.

You heard me.

Thanks for the reply. As for the dude, yea, I might get back to him and deck him out...but not right now, its too late, and I'm drained after doingthis:

Pretty energy blast, such yummy colors. *eats them*. The shape-like-shading is pretty cool, but you seemed to have randomly AA'd parts of the body, a bit more consistency might be nice ^^U.

Your new background uses a great palette, but the composition is a bit hard to follow. The guys are completely black while the terrain is fairly well lit... I have a feeling its just a style thing though. Still pretty neat.

Darion did the said pieces that inspired you.

I don't really like the texturing of the gun, and the random dither on one hand makes little sense. Otherwise, nice.

Exactly. I knew it was D something. Thanks for the tips, I forgot abou that. I had this all dithered up before, never removed that part. :P

Thanks for the reply Dhaos- I'm glad you like the colors! Could you explain what 'more consistancy means'? I'm not the best AA-er.
I was under the impression the the background sucked- its only my second actual environment. Its nice to have some encouragement. :)

Sorry for the double post, but I thought I'd share this mess:


Still a big WIP, I don't know if I want to finish or not.
