I recognize that sneer and those lips...
That's RanXerox alright. Lookandsee nailed it. Even the manikin has the same cyber-brain RanXerox has in the comics (I might even recall him having the same posture the manikin has during his repairs, but I'm not 100% sure).
Apart from that your artwork is very nice. The lighting gives it a good sense of realism, but there's something about the muscle tension (or lack of something holding the manikin) that's doesn't give your drawing a sense of weight. My very humble opinion, though.
About giving you a small story to develop from... well... because of what I said in the beginning, I can't really think of anything that isn't influenced by RanXerox. Hope someone else can help you out.
So much personality in her
Her eyes are a blend between sad and angry. She looks like someone who has suffered alot but chose to fight it away. She has this half grin, menacing... as if she were boarding an enemy ship, ready to take over. She knows what she's doing and demands to be treated seriously.
That beautiful sky makes me think of a caribbean scenario. I can almost hear the creaking ropes of a 19th century frigate, the winds blowing on the sails and the ocean waves splashing on its hull.
This picture just makes me want to know more about what's going on. What story is she telling us? Where is she heading? Who is she looking at?
So much movement and dynamism in this. So much light. So many soft colors. When I look at this portrait I have this strange sensation: as if I were on a terrace facing the sea, with beautiful balconies and the mixed smell of seaside wind and freshly cut grass...
...now that is a great gift for a friend...
I'm pretty sure...
... Christopher Paolini would be touched right now.
The effort shows... alot. She seems alive...
This is by far the strongest and most touching responce thank you ='D
... good, but I was expecting a shocker ending or something. Instead this ending just made me think why the old man sat with her in the first place... What was the point of all of this? Did the girl waste a wish or did she fall flat on her ass after discovering that the old man made her pay the cheque (including what he got while she was sleeping, maybe)? And even so, is there a profound meaning I should be grasping? My guess is "no, there isn't... there wasn't enough story for that to happen".
... the art style didn't progress/improve as I was hoping, but I must admit that I was more focused on the dialogue... wondering "where is the old man getting at?". I was honestly disappointed that nothing more personal was brought up, giving the ending this sense of "what did I just read?". Adding a little twist, with a convenient flashback might've done the trick for me.
Nice job nonetheless.
The first part makes me wonder...
... what the second part is all about. For now I feel lost in a film noir-styled world with a dash of random comedy towards the end. In fact, the way you ended it causes the story to potentially take any direction.
The art style is nice, yet I'm hoping to see more in the next part.
Great job ^_^
Disturbing (in a good way)
I knew it was going to happen in your comic strip, but I still couldn't help getting a shiver. That pretty much sums up the delirious fanboyism some people are falling into with this MLP craze... transforming into some form of Western Otaku.
Very well drawn, perfect color selection.
To anyone who doesn't get the strip... that's a good sign... it means that you didn't watch My Little Pony at all. If you did and you still don't get it, you're pretty thick-skulled.
Oh there it is!!
The four-legged tank I liked from your sketchbook!
Now that I look at it better, though, the tank muzzle is a bit wierd :S.
Kill Bill Volume 3?
This could've easily been a scene from some Quentin Tarantino movie. The glow/unfocus effect is simply great. The composition is well thought up.
One thing, though. The two dead guys below... well... don't really look so dead to me. Their expressions aren't as good as the expression from the guy with the white suit. Oh, and one more thing. The three swords seem too flat: They're all unusually at the same perpendicular angle to the observer's POV. The lighting doesn't help much.
Just some personal constructive criticism. Hope it doesn't piss you off.
That is some excellent artwork right there. Maybe the sword's a bit cheesy, but everything else compensates really nicely.
The Kenyan flag made into mosaic is sweet and the character's real good.
