    or whatever.

    So far everyone has been super nice. Anyone have any crits? I love 'em...honest! They inspire!

    The second pict is the color insert from Maelstrom #6. Battle aftermath.

    Thanks for letting me burn your eyes.

    I really like what you're doing here. That Magnus/Roddy shot just pours story out of it. Though if I could offer one small crit it's that perspective sort of seems just a touch . . .not sure what the right word is other than "off." It's not so wrong as to grab your attention, it just seems that, staring for a while, I feel a little dis-connect with it.

    Stylistically, it's amazing and I really, REALLY like it. It's tough to offer any criticism when the basic work has so much good in it.

    Thanks all,

    I especially appreciate the criticism. I'll take a look at the perspective - never my strongest skill.

    Hah! Yes I did...and I meant it! For instance, the perspective on Initiation IS off... Mags' far arm is too close. Not to mention too big. There is a person who can never lift his arms sideways without conking himself on the head, not to mention the blind spot to either side. Gonna have to do something with this one.

    The faces on Optimus and Jazz seem to be a little off perspective in the second one. Optimus' head looks a bit too fat, actually, like somehow it's been squashed outwards.

    I do like you shading style. It's something different to the norm, which in my book is always a welcome change.

    Heh...not in my story. Mags is really in trouble. I know lots of people pair them up, but even if I felt either of them was inclined to seek out another male, I don't think they'd seek out each other. Order and Chaos, ya know? They'd drive each other nuts.

    Yeah... had trouble with this one. That book was done....oh man...over a decade ago. It was the first color insert done on Photoshop. The others were hand inked. Also got a little happy with the color filters. It's busy.

    Well, after much advice, I finally put up sort of a gallery on Deviant Art. I'm a complete rookie...took my first look at the site on Saturday so bear with me. But I have some of my color work and the first book of Maelstrom on the site.

    Maelstrom is adults only please. The first book is tame, but I have it flagged for adult content because by the time I hit issue 4 the violence is entirely graphic.

    The link is:

    Anyone with crits or please help me, advice will be warmly received - even if you hate it all.

    Oh...please be a little forgiving of issue 1...I did the art on comic book backer boards with cheap markers. I was like...Um...18 and totally clueless and utterly broke!
    Thanks!
