    Nice picture but the ship looks too flat. It should have more deep.

    Hnnngh.
    I got a horrifyingly bad page placement with my last post and I'm an attention craving bastard, so I feel compelled to make a repost. Furthermore, I just finished and uploaded a brand new drawing, so I have an excuse to do so. However, my previous picture looks much better than the last one.
    Soo... Here look oh my god it's a new drawing whee yay and jubilations aplenty. Now go to the bottom of the previous page to see a decent-looking one.
    And again, if you want to see the rest of my inky scribbles that I've deemed ok enough to show the internet, click here.

    It's SUPPOSED to be a silhouette. It's just not as dark as it probably should be.

    It needs more contrast if it is silhouette

    Here some concept for a little mod/ mappack I will hopefully make. The drawing has a lot of logic flaws in the designs of the buildings but nevermind.

    Wow, I just found my first try on TF2 and it was in december 2007. I started maps on tf2 just after the release of the game but my first finished map was the artpass... :(

    Perhaps this might inspire someone, but there was a period of time where I was doing these little speed-drawings by hand. These are inked and markered - no sketching involved.

    I think the boundraies of the different layers could be more smooth. They look very bumpy atm.

    Having taken courses in veil landscape painting (which isn't digital as you done it, but the concepts are the same), you'll want to flatten and straighten out the layers that head off into the linear perspective horizon. (You can still have cliffs on the first layer (the furthest one), but the bumps need to be a lot smoother as the human eye cannot perceive detail at that distance)

    That layer also needs to be brought down a bit. You can tell it is awkward by the steep incline your power polls and its associated connectors need to take between layers 1 and 2.

    Otherwise, it looks great. Love the TF2 symbol sun. Good show, sir!
