your painting looks great, but I'm a little confused about the intense green you have scattered around, it's a bit distracting because of how strong and saturated it is.

YES! Mr. Robot, This is exactly the kind of debate and talk I want here!!!!

If I can add my two cents as well on the matter, I believe James has it right where it seems more comics on the web that have the video game, anime influenced rather then print (except tokyopop, “manga”, etc)

I believe a big part of this trend is easily understood once you realize who is making these types of comics. From my point of view, it seems those who enjoy making these comics that are video game / anime obsessed are exactly that. They make comics about video games and anime because that’s what the artist is in too and where he gets his or hers “dynamic” or main influence. Often these artist are very engaged with what I call “forum culture”. They feel very comfortable posting and making art for the web and around others who share the same passion. Which in fact carries its own stigma. Its sad but true that you’ll find more “younger” artist posting for critics then you would more older artist with books. So naturally I believe the younger artist will produce more of this kind of video game, anime roled comics because that’s what there into, thats what they all like to a degree (or could, etc) Which of course nothing wrong with that, like mentioned its totally a product of our age and culture. Even artist in the 1950s drew because what they liked as children, etc, etc, etc.

You’ll find in some cases it’s also a maturity thing (not in a negative way, like anyone is better than anyone, but more of a natural way) but hopefully as the artist grows older he will find himself exploring more than a borrowed video game culture. (This is a theory of mine, and it sounds confusing but I’ll use this little growth chart)

This could be how a comic maker would grow, totally random (not in all cases duh, you know what im talking about)

Into video games ->  Japanese culture -> Japanese literature -> literature, etc, etc

Now that doesn't nesscairly mean he will never draw video game stuff, but hopefully it will be a little more then just typical video game / anime comic, because now instead of just making comics that are like video games and anime; the artist will understand what is behinde and what makes the video game or anime great! The face vaule is gone for the artist and now is ready to explore other elements in the video game comic, rathier then just making a guy with a big sword jump around, he will hopefully realize he loves the sword guy because he is a "classic hero" etc, etc.

I agree

wow I'm glad this took off so well.  I didn't think anyone would wanna do it since there's no tangible reward.  I did about 10 studies off of an anatomy book myself, the other 40 are going to be my own hands, or friends' hands if I can get them.  Use photos if you want, you WILL still learn shit about the hand.  But life reference will be more useful.

It's not only the flash that distorts, but the fact that the camera only has one lens, and we've got two.  Seriously, life is the best way to go.
