There's so much action and horror to be found in the Wastes, sometimes it does a world of good to have your group take it easy for a night. :)

So, what does one have to do to commission a picture from thee?

He'll post a journal offering slots once in a while. Make sure you be quick though, and not playing a game while your iPhone is the victim of a slow internet connection like mine was >_<

Hmm... I can see clear improvement in lineart compared to your previous works. I really like how clean the lines are and the variety in line weight. Quality pencil works seem rather rare since so many talented people seem to prefer digital.

Lighting seems to work well but it could be a bit smoother. I know scanners don't really give justice to pencil drawings so it might be mostly due to that. Though I would like to ask what tools do you use on these drawings?

Well I'll stop here before I start rambling more... So yeah. I like picture and the atmosphere seems very... I dunno... lifelike? realistic? Ehh words escape me now.

Thank you for the indepth feed back. :D I appreciate it.

Yeah, the lighting can be way better. I fear I got a bit lazy toward the end. For this picture, I used a my usual tool, a 0.5 mechanical pencil.

Thanks again!

I've found out that normal pencil works much better for shading compared to mechanical pencil. Mechanical is best for accurate details and lineart but you will get much smoother texture way with normal pencil while shading. Regular HB pencil also feels much softer to use and due to the larger point it is easier and faster to cover large areas. But thats like... just my opinion man... I hope I don't come out as too pushy or anything :P (there are also some advantages with softer pencils like 2B taht are good for really adding contrast and stuff.... but I'm not going to start rambling about that stuff now :P)
