MARKER 49 [ 1 decade ago ]

Started this some time a go but only recently gone back to it to quickly "finished" it, and dedicated to Drakxxx, as the front is drawn by me with a Wacom Tablet. I have to admit, I'm not a fan of using pen/tablet. Actually drawing is okay with it, but I don't like the blending.. just doesn't work well for me --- probably haven't set it up correctly... or it's probably better with other programs rather than photoshop? So, I actually started drawing it with the Wacom.. and finished it with a mouse. Back is a 'standard' design to complete... all in all -- made to test my Wacom Intuos3 A5 :) Probably some parts needs attention... but it would probably never be fully complete in my eyes if I touched up everything. :)

Really, really amazing, his face looks a bit flat on the front, but terrific work.

God, you almost Rank 17 already.
Biatch =P

Wacom tablets can take some time to get used to but in the long run it's infinitely better than a mouse. I use mine mainly for Photoshop, Illustrator and Maya.

As for your box, love the back and the drawing on the front gives the whole piece a unique look. My only nitpick is that Drake's ear seems a bit off.

Not as epic as usual, but still great!

I'm not keen on the drawing. It's brilliant, technically, but the proportions seem wrong, and he looks rather nearthandal-esque.
Better than anything I could do though. I have a mental block on drawing faces, and I can't paint digitally to save my life.
I'm not oh so keen on the back either, to be honest. The skewed text doesn't align with the background image, and the tagline would look so much better if moved over slightly to the right, so it didn't overlap the container.

Wait, how have you avoided my author fav?

Awesome sir, you've finally completed it!

As an initial array into the world of waccom, this came out fantastic.
You've done a great job with the colors, and the composition, and the back goes together quite niceley with the front, especially considering how you've incorporated official artwork.

It took me a good many months to get used to the tablet as well, but as far as actual digital drawing is concerned, it's a must.

I'd love to see you do some more like this sir.

I love how you just took that IGN quote from the original and added a 2.

I don't really like this one that much. I know it must have been hard to draw those characters, and I commend you for that, but I just don't think they work. The layout of the back is kind of unoriginal and underwhelming by your standards, and the screenshot descriptions definitely don't seem like something I'd see on an official box.

It sucks, and I hate you more and more every time I see your work.

Seriously though, I really like it. Your drawings on the front are pretty damn epic. The only thing I'd of liked to see a little more innovation on is the Logo, it seems a tad too plain.

Well, definitely not your best. The back seems to be lacking something, but I can't figure out what it is. The front art is okay, but still doesn't looked finished in my opinion. I think their facial proportions are what is throwing me off. I'm sorry, but I'm not going to +Fav the box, unless you fix some things.

#4, Agreed, also it wont be too long before already maxes out at 18, then leaves again :\

#12, No way it could be coincidence, if your not used to drawing on the tablet, then you need something to start you off right.

Huge props for drawing the front. Here's a suggestion that may help: I find it's often easier to draw your design on paper first then scan it and finish it with the tablet. Often I will sketch my artwork in pencil, then go over it in ink, then scan it and fill in the color and add final touches with the Wacom in Photoshop. Straight-up drawing with the tablet is hard and takes getting used to because of things like you said: shading and blending issues. Going from proof on paper to Photoshop saves me a lot of frustration and makes the workflow a lot quicker in my opinion.
