Title: A New Style
Post by: jibjib on 21 May 2008, 09:59
Hello, some of you know me and are familiar with the style I've been using for the past years (A Divine Dramedy (http://www.graphiteplayground.com/index2.php)), but lately I've been developing a new one.  Take a look and tell me what you think.  Thanks :)

I like more your old style, but that's a matter of opinion which is different person to person :p
I like the way you colour, and drawing in general but the faces, well, I preffer more comical style.

Anyways, in an objective way, your style is sooo neat!

It's really nice, but then again I do enjoy that kind of style.  Some of the stuff seems a little plain on details and I don't think that you exploit colour as much as you could.  The man riding the hippo for me is the strongest of the bunch whereas the racist one is the one where a lot more detail will add so many more dimensions to the art.

I think using stronger and more contrasting colours would help, but apart from that I think your drawings are fucking awesome and a good progression from ADD!

I LOVE your style. Lovelovelove. The three comic pages are funny and I like how whimsical the palette is.

I like your new style a lot but I prefer your old one just a little bit more. Kind of reminds me of Edward Gorey.

Do both at the same time! You're quite the drawing guy.

I think these are fantastic, I love the twisted chaotic quality like the way you did the guitar strings
