Awesome work Cen, I love it when you use water color. Infact, that's all you should ever do because it makes me happy and my happiness is all that matters.

Will be considered, though pure watercolour works are pretty intimidating to me. Insanely so.
So I decided to make an A3 sized poster with watercolour only as a graduation present.
Genius.

Webcam picture because I can't be bothered to try and scan this, only partially photographed because that part looks best.

And please no crits on this one, if someone should feel the urge. Take the two top ones and rip those apart, but not this one.
Thanks.

Yes!! Cen made a new art thread. I can now go back to trolling...I mean commenting on his art. And I will do that when I am on my CPU and not my phone. It takes me forever to type on my phone.

I like your penguin. Very good use of water coloring. But I have to ask, where are the horse porn pictures?

So lets get on with some of the commenting I said I would do.

The first picture is simple which is nice. There are parts you could clean up that would make me happy but it is not big deal. There is a part on the left of the dragon that is the background but looks like it could be part of the dragon, that bugs me a little. The smoke coming from the dragon is really well done.

*Rants for hours about how he hates painting and watercolors*
OK. The next picture is watercolor it seems. It is really good. I HATE painting. I can never get the detail that I want. You did a good job with it though. Are the black things supposed to be other heads?

Can I critique the last one? PLEASE?

Penguins indeed.
And stuffed, well, not so much. But at least I can butt in here once in a while to get some responses.

You only say that because you can't see the entire picture. Watercolour is hard to deal with.
As for the horse porn, I doubt Strop will be posting anything in this thread this time around. Probably for the better.

I don't think I can clean it much better without redrawing it on computer, really. Perhaps remove that one line from the hatching that went onto the foot, but otherwise I don't know. What part exactly?

As I mentioned a couple of times, it's mainly watercolour pencils, which are a lot easier to work with in most cases. The black aura thing is the real watercolour. So, get yourself some watercolour pencils, they are more colourful than regular colouring pencils, and they get rather handy when you want to do watercolour-like stuff.
The black things are what I assume can be considered ominous tentacles:

And this makes it rather obvious how bad my memory works. The neck-part should have been black as well, but that would probably have messed with the 'rotting, damages skin' thing.

Can I critique the last one? PLEASE?

Nope.
You can comment on it, but I am not in a state of mind where a critique would do anything but aggravate me.
Not just because it was a day long work to get it done, that I managed to screw up a number of times (don't try to erase stuff when the paper isn't entirely dry!) and so on and so forth, but rather because this is going to be a present, and knowing something could be changed will make me redo it, and I don't have neither time nor sanity to do so.

Two of the feet. The one on the far left and far right. There is also a small one on the tail. And I think if you didn't have the lines where the wing connects it might look better but it might not.

And this makes it rather obvious how bad my memory works.

Well yours is better anyway.

Fine. I like penguins. It is good.

don't try to erase stuff when the paper isn't entirely dry!

Ya. That is never good. Did you make holes in it?

I just wish I could art more often.

Very well. It was not the best of designs anyway, and the lines at the wing was mainly because I had made the back line too long, and was trying to disguise it.
So, understandable.

Well yours is better anyway.

Well, everything is better with rotting flesh. I have taken a great liking to many of the fifth gens mainly due to a mix between their design and their dex entry. Hydreigon? Mainly because it looks like someone ripped off its legs, and its tail is rotting off. Its shiny is green, so it just goes double for that.

I like penguins. It is good.

Yay!

Nah, I was working on acrylic paper, which, while thick, isn't exactly aquarell paper. So, I just managed to erase away some of the colour and the paper, and then smudge the rest of the colour. Stupid move, but I think it was saved pretty well.
