    Thought I'd post some of my stuff.

    I don't have anything *good* lying around here (most of my decent work is up in my room in my dad's house, where I've got better equipment)... but I've been rummaging through some random pages full of doodles and sketches. Most of these were done during class, with a simple ballpoint pen or a pencil on really low quality paper, so don't judge me too harshly on that aspect. You can be totally honest about the drawings though. :)

    Thank you very much! :) They're pretty much my own designs, yes. Of course, like anyone, I have influences, but I try not to emulate others much. Not that I'm that original... ;)


    Thanks again! Anyone else wanna take a shot?

    Yeah, when I draw Batman characters, they usually end up looking like something based on TAS designs. Except Batman himself, oddly.


    Here's some more...

    You're extremely talented: your line art is rich, fluid, refined and adds a strange aesthetic to the things that you draw.

    In fact, the only thing I can recommend is that you use a scanner or a graphics program to clear the resolution of your pictures. I would be interested in seeing them in their full nature.

    wow, riven, you have a very classic art. Reminds me of tim burton's animated stuff. You'd be good at ssomething like creepy-children's books.

    I like the animated series influence in the batman stuff. Your penguin though, looks a lot like Penguin from Batman Returns.

    I can't wait to see more.

    Every single one of your drawings has the character looking to the left side of the screen.

    I like. Very cartoony. I must ask this with every new artis: Would you please do either The Question, Blue Beetle, Huntress, or Powergirl? Thoes are my four favorite DC heroes.

    I'll see what I can do! It might take me a while to get around to it, but I'll give it a try for ya.

    I know. It's a subconscious thing. I don't understand it myself... when I pay attention to my drawing, I have no problem drawing people looking either way, but when I'm just sketching or doing character designs, I automatically draw them facing left... :confused:



    Everyone else: THANKS!! :) Very nice replies.

    Very nice work! Your style reminds me alot of Al Hirshfield. Have you ever seen his work? He draws the charactures of famous celebrities back in the day.

    You have those broad, fluent lines of ink that resembles Hirshfields work. It's uncanny!

    Nothing to be brutal about. Your style is really good. The only thing are you scanning these, or using a digital camera?

    I've checked it out... can't say I was familiar with his work. You definitely have a point though! Interesting...:up:

    Riven,
    Really nice line work... they echo that turn of the century feel of the early New York Post covers..

    Great work!

    Here's brutal:

    You need to finish these. Put them on good paper or in the computer and finish these.

    I would love to see a finished version of your style, since these bored-in-class sketches are this good.

    I love your style, man.
