Horsepower by Adoradora Horsepower by Adoradora
Dang, perspective never was my strong suit. Neither is anatomy, come to think of it. Or, you know, colour and shading and stuff. Apart from that I'm pretty damn good, if I do say so myself.

Ink, ink, ink, toothbrush, photocopier, ink and ink.

What a jerk, not picking up hitchhikers... or course, with her sunny disposition, I can kind of see why... :)

I adore this picture
Rather wish I had a bit more to say, but I love it. I really like the details you put into the characters (the contours [?] in the motorcyclist, for one :D )
I looked through your gallery a little while ago (I liked the Goodbye Cruel World comic a lot too), and it's fantastic- I really like the detail you put into hands and faces.
I also want to thank you for introducing me to The Cyberiad, which I'll hopefully rent or buy soon- I'm always looking for new books.

you have a very interesting style, i really like this

I love the colour scheme, this is amazing as usual. Great bike design.
If there is any problem with the perspective, for which one would need to look closely, it is the lines of the yellow road: the only problem I see is the lines directly under the two back wheels, specifically the one line that passes between them. I think it makes the two wheels look too close together than they really are.
Otherwise, this is absolutely magnificent! Your style makes want to try it.

Ah.. this is fantastic. That contraption looks really, really solid, not to mention surreal and great. My only critique would be I think it could stand to be cropped in a little more from the top - the headroom looks a little awkward considering how cut off it is on the right. But it's minor.

Wow... that horse... erm.. I dunno what to call it. XD It reminds me of a motorcycle. Either way, no matter what it may be, it is awesome looking. =D I especially like the teeth. Oh, and your perspective skills kick mine in the pants. :giggle:
Adoradora Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2007
Aw, surely not! Anyhow, your computer graphics expertise wallops mine over the head with an anvil. :giggle:

Glad you liked the teeth!

whatever you lack you make up for double with pizazz.
Adoradora Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2007
Tee hee, got pizzazz oozing out my 'earoles, I do. Thanks!

Pfft, if you're not good at perspective, you do a smashing job of faking it, then. The lines on the ground are a good way of guiding (and convincing) the eye, though I think you could push that a bit more - perhaps exaggerate the spread and pay a little more attention to the space between the lines themselves. The only other thing I could suggest is maybe more foreshortening (i.e. for stuff like the pointing figure's arm).
I'm only really saying this stuff because I noticed it said "advanced crit encouraged" - not sure how helpful this is, though, and I'm scraping the barrel anyway.
The horse design is amazing; I can't stop looking at it. And personally I think the bold colors and limited palette work quite well with the ink - very striking.
Adoradora Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2007
Aww, thanks! So long as I can fudge a reasonable imitation of perspective, I'm happy -- it just doesn't come naturally to me for some reason. You're very right, that little man's arm definitely needs a bit of foreshortening.

And many thanks for the advice -- that's precisely why I whacked that 'advanced critique encouraged' at the bottom there!

i love it!
benjelter Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2007
i think your values have improved a lot. your drawings have always been amazing. this one really has a lot of dimension to it without feeling too much like everything was built out of perspective cubes. nice work!
Adoradora Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2007
Many thanks! You do know I worship at the altar of your draughtsmanship, so that's very nice to hear :blushes:
