The Boys are Back in Town by OhSadface The Boys are Back in Town by OhSadface
:Big ass file if you hit download!!:

FIRST THINGS FIRST!! It is completely unintentional that this ended up looking like the Pineapple Express movie poster!! [link] I swear I don’t think about what I am doing I just do it which causes things like this to happen! Also it’s a lot like the POTC: At Worlds end promo posters by crap man no one invented fog!! Or characters walking through it XD so tough noogies I like how it looks D:<

Alrighty so yeah Basically we have left to right we have Dino Mackenzie (Mack), Shannon Felix (SadFace), and Frances “Frankie" D'Angelo (Mr.Fixit). If you wanna read there little descriptions here: [link]

Now then this picture took like 3 week to long!! 2 of which I was lazy and 1 of which I was sort of depressed. But all that matters is it’s freaking done!! Unfortunately since I have been staring at each character tooo long I find soooo many things wrong with this be it shading, under detailing, and basic face/body structure..I mean The biggest pain in the ass (which makes sense) was Frankie!! That little butthead had his face reconstructed several times and he still looks weird and to much like he is gonna rape someone D: And then last night I ended up drawing him a new nicer, better outfit and was all ready this morning to completely color over his nicely done filthy looking wife beater buuuut I haven’t the heart XD or patience… Mack was alot of trouble mainly with his skin and hair but I did what I could I mean I have never had trouble coloring hair but his perplexed me and I had to do some bare minimum shading D,: it hurt me…. But atleast I am happy with his ears XD Now on a lighter note SadFace came out good in my opinion his nose is a little wonkey but imperfections are nothing to be ashamed of I mean I am In love with the way his scar looks :B His fluffy collar still bothers me but it’s better then it’s previous stages.

Other notes: Dino and Frankie are slightly lighter then SadFace because it looked weird if they were normal unfortunately if I make em’ even lighter they loose lots of details. Yes I was to lazy to redraw the communicators and they are the same one and I do realize they are all different sizes wanna fight about it? Shut up they come in different sizes for different belt thicknesses…..yeah….. no Dino’s cigarette is not supposed to be lit and yes he is that tall. And i tried to make the ground under there feet darker but it looked really bad. I did try to have a light source on this like right infront of SadFace but you can barely tell anymore. If there is anything I could try and fix tell me you’r suggestions :B Nothing major though it’s tough for me to like completely redo an arm or something…

oh hey! I saw your maquette at Norris, and it's awesome! I really like these characters, all in all (of course Sadface is my favorite). I like the style of digital painting you have as well, although I do wonder if the characters would look better without the golden skin tone and rather something more realistic to reality (though I can understand that gives it a sort of...old-film feel?).

All in all, it's great though. I can tell you really put a lot of work into it!

First, I'm very sorry I can't offer any useful criticisms to help because, frankly, why criticize someone who's beter than you? Exactly. >w<

Still, I saw Jim draw SadFace and was all,"Wow. I love his character concept. Let's see him sum more! -click!-" And s I ended up here and just have to say, Woooooow!! This is amazingly fantastic! Whatever do you colour with? What program? And, I like Mack. 8D Not sure why but I'm drawn to 'im. Yup. Indeed. Quite.

So, uh, feel better, kay? From someone you've never seen/heard/met before. I'm sorry for your computer loss(despite the fact that you need a compy to see this...)and I hope it all works out well for you in the end. =}

Nice. I really dig the long, narrow composition, the fog, and Mack's face; it reads especially believable for me. I'd like to see you push the darks in the clothing a bit more, so Mack's face and Mr. Fixit's eyepatch weren't the only bit of black/90% gray. A bit of a shadow under their feet might help to ground them a bit more. And Fixit's deltoids are looking way circular; keep in mind that it's actually more of a triangular shape.

See i can't exactly be blamed for the blacks thing XD My computer is super dark and it looks fine and dark here but what everyone else sees is diffrent and i have tried to fix it buuuutt i can't. But i do agree on everything else, his arms did bother me but i got so sick of working on him i never fixed them. But i may go back and fix it still :B also i will see how the shadow looks :B Thanks for the suggestons!! I always appreciate it!! :heart:

DDDDD: THIS IS AWESOME. The composition's simple, yeah, but it's effective here. If I had to give any kind of concrit, it'd be that I think Frankie's suspenders are a wee bit off, and that his left (our right) one should maybe be moved over a bit. But shit, man, this is simply amazing.

Yaaay it's finally done! XD It definitely feels like a movie poster with that extravagant amount of blank space at the top. I have to say it, I miss Frankie's hair flippies. 3: I really do. Shannon's slouchy posture is perfect, too. XD It's great that he's not standing up straight. ...Mack's hot. Shit, I'd tap that. Also ha ha that SF is the leader but is the shortest! XD Great job, man, I say get a big-ass print of this for our room at SCAD!

Frankies hair flippies ran away, they made his head look to big XD SF isn't the shortest Frankie is, but SF is slouching and frankie is set back a little :B I think it's the bulky clothing that amkes him short looking XD he is like skinny muscular like a swimmer or somthing XD And Why am i not surprised you think Mack is hot? why oh why?

LoL @ Pineapple Express unintentionality. But seriously this is one of your best pieces yet so far, methinks!! I really love what you've been doing with your digital coloring, Celest!!! It just keeps getting better and better! Before you know it, you'll be a natural Yuni! I'm totally diggin' the foggy look; It's a simple yet way effective composition. I always love the detail you put into costumes and character design; how all your guys are so unique from one another. Love the subtle striping on Sadface (lol)'s jacket. I think the best pulled off fabric though is D'Angelo's shirt. It has the most naturalistic folds and really great contrast in the colors. I love his rapeface though XD And lol @ communicator size differences. I totally wouldn't have caught that if you didn't bring it up. *doesn't want to fight about it* XD I think it works though! If everything's all symmetrical and even then it looks too planned. Again, I think your detailing is awesome!

I think if I were to change anything, I'd use a less saturated skin palette to better unify the overall color scheme. They have a pin-up glow about them in an otherwise dirty atmosphere. Which may or may not be what you intended, but I'd at least knock down Dino's shirt because it competes with his skin tone. The skin tone also visually flattens out the contrast on his jacket in comparison. Of course, take it with a grain of salt, because this is still my favorite pic of yours, like. ever. You worked really hard, all things considered, and I think the 3 weeks was well worth it! Portfolio piece? Hm? Hm? XD And the crit's all just nit picking anyways. This is one to get blown up huge and printed down at the kinko's, ja?

Wooowwwiiee Thanks for the super comment!! XD And i did sort of plan the skin color thing because i had it all normal and stuff but once i upped the saturation it just made it pop and it made my eyes happy. I do although agree on Dinos shirt that had given my trouble in te next day or so i will see what i can do to mess with it.And in gerneral his skin was the biggest pain in the ass, i made it lighter and it was flat i made it darker and it was tooooooo dark for the piece, i will try and mess with it again though. Thanks for the suggestions and coments :B It's highly appreciated!! also yes i am totally printing this one out in poster size :B
