Go around threatening people like that in real life you'l get arrested or beaten up. There's nothing wrong with having a bit of confidence either btw. Go run around hating on people taking jokes badly. who cares

I have been a bit of a hypocrite.This is because i cant draw faces or heads of people so i completely avoid drawing humans as it always ends in disaster.I could persevere and try and learn but i am not really interested so i am shying away from it myself because its challenging but really you should just draw what you like.

Why should you only be allowed to draw humans if you want to draw something else.

Anyway I'd just like to say thankyou for the more considered comments. I think someone said that sometimes a cartoony style distracts them from design, which I hadn't thought of, so I've taken that on board for certain designs. Bunch of other stuff to Id like to say thankyou for.

As for the other junk I don't want to be associated with a board where that's not modded. It's the sort of thing I can't ignore but its not good to be getting involved in. Especially on the internet. You want to find out who your threatening though I'm on facebook. Don't be stupid. Anyway I asked the mods to delete this. God knows if they will  but I didn't want to go without saying thanks

Well that's it really. I'm not too fussed. If you leave comments I might listen to them. I don't have too. You don't have to look either. Like I said all comments are really welcome but I don't see why I have too reserve the right to reply. I'm just doing this for fun. As for being 2000ad related I see 2000ad as a creative place where creators often create totally new worlds and stories.

This is a comic example. I just got bored. It's pretty boring drawing those buildings. I am confident though that it is an example of how these characters could work in a book. Not that I would really care if it didn't. Can I draw mundane stuff, sure, would I personally want to read that, not really.

I'll probably just post images now though. So they're there if you like. I'm not even asking for money or anything.

Please. Keep that advice

It's excellent and constructive advice. You've a gob on you and a bad attitude -- you're pulling the same shite on Millarworld, where you already seem to be noted for it. There are a LOT of professional comic creators on this board, including me.

Now, I may only be a humble letterer, but occasionally I do have conversations with editors. Imagine one where they say "Damn, the artist on this book has just dropped out on me and my go-to guy is on holiday. Any ideas?"

A recommendation to an editor from someone already working in the industry is worth a lot, but do you really think anyone's going to recommend you when you come across as an argumentative gobshite, even if your work was ready for the big time, which it ain't?

Being professional is about more than just the standard of your drawing.

Cheers

Jim

aaaaaaaaaah wait a minute. The millarworld pen thread. I was just kidding. Sorry if I hurt your feelings. I'm a joker. Can't help it. I didn't mean to annoy you, I just write absurd stuff. I even said their that I was taking your pen advice, and that I wasn't going to ink with cigarettes because I'm not as good an inker as Simon Bisley. Tools matter to me. I don't want bad ones, get bad tools you only end up blaming them. One person even agreed with me anyway.

Am I the only one who gets a bit irritated when randoms just barge in and start a thread and fill it with their (non-2000ad related) artwork?

It all depends.
Depends if they're friendly, warm and open to constructive critisim from other, professional I might add, artists on the boards.


constructive criticism like this?

 Son, you need to chill the fuck out.

Cheers

Jim

Please. Keep that advice

If 2000 ad isn't the place to get away from constant never ending super hero books where new ideas are tried out then I don't what it's for.

And accusing an artist of copying without evidence is just the worst insult. An artist that doesn't have any originality is about as useful as a car with no wheels. And at a professional level it could be considered libellous. I'd like to see some evidence. Even if that one there is a bit like the thing. But I added to it. It's the resident evil version of multi handed on the same arm Minotaur I was drawing so they could have swords and a bow.

.....but I've stopped drawing from life now because it doesn't look right for this sort of thing which is why I wanted to get rid of it.
Any other technical issues are just exaggeration and style.

 I'm still appreciating any and all comments though.
I think your problems are highlighted here. Drawing from life will improve your drawing of the things you pull from your imagination as well, because they will be grounded in reality, if that makes sense. Also, the second comment I've highlighted is very dismissive of any crits that may come your way! For the record, though, I quite like what you've posted so far.

chill out, i really mean it, its appreciated.

The edit buttons gone now. I think I was meant to copy the link next to it. The space one I drew from life which went wrong because the woman that I drew it from had the longest skinniest bendiest (but really hot) body I have seen. Drawing from life is a real pain for this because not many womens legs are exactly 3 heads long. People are getting taller and 4 heads for legs isn't uncommon. Myleene Klass' body is more tham 3 heads long by a little bit and so do a lot of other people. That thing they teach were your arm span is the same as your height obvioulsy isn't true because I watch the UFC and often fighters of the same height have different armspans. Wanderlei silva has arms as long as people 4 inches taller. Not many people are exactly like what they teach at school. Those measurements were just Greek ideals I think. All I can say is that it looks exactly like the woman it was drawn from, from that angle her breasts looked higher than one head and with foreshortening her legs did look big but I've stopped drawing from life now because it doesn't look right for this sort of thing which is why I wanted to get rid of it.
Any other technical issues are just exaggeration and style.

 I'm still appreciating any and all comments though.

How do I edit that post. I don't like the space suit one now because the legs were too big, didn't mean to post that one.

You've got to admit though, professing to be God and getting comments even close to positive isn't bad.

Apart from that your avoiding your main weaknesses, or the hard bits by taking shortcuts on the feet and hands. Either with 'manga boots' or using weird mechanical stuff.


It's not really a shortcut or avoidance, I'm ust trying to be interesting. I practically only read Japanese comics. I can't stand drawing naked men like American books. I see enough hot muscular me in the mirror. I wouldn't mind if I woke up tommorow drawing like Hiroaki Samura or Yoji Shinkawa though. Infact it might help people concentrate on the designs, but I'm still going to be drawing crazy junk aswell, too many people will always be doing realistic stuff better. The world only needs so many Jim Lees. They look a lot better than when I start a few months ago though. I used to draw feet on backwards. I'll take it on board, especially if I think of something that needs to look real. I like Otomo too for this.
