OH. The difference in value for the truck is really nice. I'm wondering though, why is there a line through the middle of it? Is it cut in half?

It's an old cast iron toy truck; that's just how it was made I guess.

I love the detail you put into the lighthouse! I mean, I like to draw, but I can never take the time to add that much detail. Great job!

I use 2h for the sketch and light shading. 2b for most of the rest, but I'll use 3b and up for darker areas. Charcoal works well for getting really dark areas, but I hate the mess they involve. I also incorporate pens (mainly pigma microns) for small details.

So, when you posted art last time, I went to look and said to myself "I should probably comment on these". And then I didn't.

So, now I will do so, because.

The thumbnails are pretty neat, though they arguably need some cleaning up to do, if they were to be used as icons. The dynamic is right, but the messy lines does make the images rather heavy, and the amount of black in some of them subtracts from the general posing of the image, instead of letting it stand out.
But then again, they look pretty much like the thumbnails I work with then I bother, so it fully understandable.

Truck is nice, thumbs up for using charcoal. It's impossible for me, so, well, just thumbs up for even considering that material in the first place.

Sketch dump is sketchy, like that one ASC entry you did. It's not bad, it's just sketchy and random, and it's interesting to look at. Stick person holding heart and other stick person being dead is an awesome concept, and you could probably earn money on that specifically.

The blend of pen and pencil does confuse me a little in this one. The image in itself is rather nice and well done, as your more serious art tends to be, but the choice of material might not be the best for this type of art. Many of the black lines stand out too much and steals the focus from the overall picture. Especially the streaks in the beard.
It does look all right in the sides of the beard, and it was a good choice to draw the eyes/pupil and iris in ink, since that is where the focus really should be, and puts emphasis on a detail that the eyes of the viewer naturally finds in an image.

Looks nice, the ink doesn't do anything bad for the image here (if it does anything good either can be debated). This is your ASC entry, isn't it? Probably more fitting than mine ended up being.
If I am going to analyse it (and there's no one to stop me from doing so, so ahahaha!) this tells a fine story of the consequences of authority, or in this case, how lonely you will end up being if all people bow and scramble for you, because you are of the highest rank. When all the commoners are partying outside in their lowly houses, the guards are elsewhere, either doing their job, or drinking and probably talking about how horribly your employment is, and then you just sit there on your throne, alone, because no one will ever be respectful for you because of who you are, and no one will ever look past your rank.
Anyway. I guess what I am trying to say is that it's an effective image and I like it.

I like this one. The perspective of the staircase is a little funky, but the image in itself is just... Very nice. And very thought provocing and horrible at the same time.
This would be something I would expect to see in a newspaper or as a poster or a billboard on the street. Probably with some horrible caption, but even without it, it's just... It's just perfect.
10/10 would look again.

AND AWAY!

Thanks for the crits Cen. Btw, did you get your computer fixed or whatever?

I had no choice in the matter, that was the assignment. I don't like charcoal, to much blending in and going over and over an area to get the right shade. I could go on with everything I don't like about charcoal, but I won't.

I can make money?! How?

Good points. I will say that I misplaced my smallest pen, so I used a thicker point than I wanted. I'm kind of in experimental mode with pens and ink, and so I'm getting the good with the bad that comes with the territory.

You know, I hate this picture the more I look at it, but I'm glad you like it. I should have varied my line thickness more, my old dudes kinda blend in to much, the staircase is off like you said, and it got me my lowest grade in art class to date.

I understand. I really don't understand the material at all, so I am just deeply impressed anyone would make anything with charcoal at all.
It kinda baffles me, I guess.

Either comics or t-shirts. Or post cards. Post cards are always a choice.

Totally understandable. And, well, it does work out some places, but others the shading is just too light to not make it stand out too much.

There is always time to revisit again at a later date.
There is always room for improvement, and the concept and style is worth it, at least to me.

And yeah, my computer got fixed. Thankfully it had not fried as I feared it had, so all is well. Now there is just school in the way for the next long while.

Haha, I'd hate to know what a postcard with a guy getting his heart ripped out would be used for.

I wonder where all of the lost pens and pencils go. hmm

And good luck with school. My fall semester is almost done. I'm not sure how many classes I will take for the next one.
