They wanted to bond an Entity so badly, they created one. An awful amalgamation of Entity corpses, their clothes and their metal. It was stable for a while, but it soon became obvious the people inside couldn't hold their minds together. The Fake Entity's flesh ripped open.

I'm kind of too distracted lately, so here is some stuff that came from not working as much as I wanted.

Favs from my Favs - Week 4

Pico Day happened!


It was Pico Day this past week, where we got to see lots of creatives flex their weens to celebrate all things NG. The picollage went live and the world was good, even if just for a bit.


This is horrible, but that's PlantPotPerson for ya.


Etika left us 1 year ago, and Glp-hextech made a beautiful portrait to celebrate his life and commemorate his passing.


DarkSoulMonster brings it with a great composition using silhouettes against lava.


Great dynamic Sonic piece by Fishnchipins.


This is the closest I'll ever be from Disneyland, thank you dyemooch.


momotdima brings the cybergirl genre back for the actress posters of his project Pornohero. Check it out!


PinkShirtDude brought us 3 great songs to train to while being locked at home!


Look at this cool dude by LinesToThePaper!


skullchimes brings us a fantastical encounter.


A chill FFXIV piece by GINKGOSAN with great solid color and shapes.


That Vergil boy is up to no good and Nextoad knows it. Amazing use of neutrals and color temperature shifts.


Thank you all for making the site full of great stuff!

How to ask for a critique?

by cyangorilla


Hey everyone, I go on the art forum often to see if there is people asking for help with their pieces or for general critiques on their work. In fact, I made a post last year, where I did my best to do in-depth critiques. It sort of fell out of use, as people tend to prefer a post for their own art.

In these threads I generally see one of these:

  1. Hey, I want to be good, how? [no image]
  2. What do I improve in this drawing? [image]
  3. Hey, these are my last 3 pieces, what should I improve? [images]


In case 1, you are not giving anything and you'll receive generic answers that might not help you at all. I case 2, you are providing an image, which is better, but you are still being vague. In case 3, you are asking for too much at once and will get less in return (either people will focus on one piece only or provide general answers that sort of apply to all), there is a lack of focus again.


In all of the cases there are two crucial elements missing:


The goal and the focus

The aspiring anime artist has a completely different goal from the aspiring Magic the Gathering artist. They will also have different focal elements for each of their pieces. This doesn't mean that both of them don't have overlapping areas to improve, as is generally the case with fundamentals.


To express your goal, you can use another artist or artwork ("I want my pieces to look more like this"), or you can state the general style you want: "My goal is to make work that looks photorealistic". Avoid using vague sentences like "I want to draw anime", Akira is anime just as much as Lucky Star is.


To pin down the focus, be as specific as you can. For example:


"When I was drawing this I could not, for the life of me, figure out the way to draw the arms, what lines should I draw? how do the muscles look in this pose?"


"How should I change the lighting to achieve something similar to [goal]?"


"How well are my colors working, keeping in mind that I'm striving for something similar to [goal]?"


"Are my values right?"


"Are the materials distinct?"


"What elements in this piece should be improved upon, if my goal is [goal]?"

Favs from my Favs - Week 3

40 days "quarantine" has come and gone... except it keeps going


Hey everyone!

Not a lot happened this week in my life, but art keeps coming!

First-off, happy belated birthday Tom Fulp! Hope you had a great time with your loved ones ^-^


I'll be a bit more selective this week to avoid having a giant list.


The strange mind of PlantPotPerson has reached the portal!


Joifish brought us a bit of a joyful time with friends, in these times apart from everyone


Star Wars may be dead as fuck with all the Disney TOMfool(p)ery, but we can all commemorate its life ever May 4. Thank you MechaBrain for this nice reminder of the good stuff.



DoomJelly keeps impressing me with every pixel art char design they post!


Painterly anime is always the right way to go, and TheLysProject is out to prove it (?


Aeka is back with new stuff!


Glp-hextech keeps digging into my head the limitless potential of pixel art


I just saw a pic by nakatan-the-seer that put a smile on my face


Dannny123's short animations are getting cooler and cooler!


And the last one: DarkSoulMonster giving us a small painting to dream of better days


Now, I've been working on some stuff during the week, of which I can only show this (because the rest is shit) :D

Favs from my Favs - Week 2

First-off, my absolutely favorite thing from this week


Same as last week, I'll be choosing posts under 100 views from people I follow. Some might be NSFW or "NSF being at home with your family around", so check the ratings!

Some are not scouted yet, so if you feel they deserve it, please offer a scout. I think a lot of people don't even know about the scouting system, and see the message as spam and disregard it (I've gotten this reply in the past). So maybe leave a review with a line to let them know.


Let's begin, then!























I love love love the way the Nazgûl-bird looks!
