I did this for the new topic where we take an old drawing or character, basically something from our past and update it. Also upload the original character or drawing so we can see your progress. I will be uploading the original tomorrow. I forgot to bring the drawing to work today. This is a character I made up in the fourth grade. His name is "The Shark". Did you guess that already? The fin on his head gave it away? LOL! As lame as it may sound now he was the bomb back in the day! He survived about 3 issues of my super hero group "The Persuaders". He died in issue four with a knife to the chest. Heavy stuff! LOL! Anyway I look forward to the other posts.

Tiiiiiiiiiight. The shapes of the muscles are bangin. He looks like a graffiti character. I could see em' in a phat piece, on some busted block in a inner city. Yeah he would go good at the end or in the middle of some lettering. I want to see this character animated. At lease a 1 min. study. What do yah' say?

This is a fun drawing Dah! If I may comment on the rendering..I think it's screaming for some more contrast in the costume. It's a monochromatic costume with very samey tones. I think if you added some highlights here and there it would bring out the forms more. As it is now I blur my eyes and all I see are the contours.

I was talking about that recently. I need to improve on contrasts in my work. Like Sym7! He does that well. Thing is I normally just paint real quick and many times I may not think it all the way through. But I agree with ur comment. I see u do that alot with ur painting which is why I marvel at them. Well next time I may have to focus on that aspect. Thanks for the honest critique! That is what it's all about!
