I LOVE your page! Great line work! The characters look great and have just the right amount of cute. I’ll have critiques up soon, but have you ever looked at much Adam Warren art? He may be a cool style inspiration for you.
Thanks, Scott. I didn’t handle the hair ans well as I wanted. I really wanted to use the All-Might shadow in panel 3 as foreshadowing…I think I could have done that better. I did try to switch up my inking. I think I could have pushed the whole manga style thing a bit further…or better.
Oh, and you’re supposed to read it right to left (that was a REAL challenge–ha ha)
So sorry the poll is up late! I was under the weather today. Voting is open, though and I’m going to have to take some time deliberating on who will get my vote.
Aaaaaaand here’s my My Hero Academia page. I think I took more time trying to research this than I did drawing it. So, if you’re looking for this to reference anything from the manga…it’s a secret, never-before-revealed battle. 😉
Holy smoke! …this just gets more and more confusing. Ha Ha. You crazy kids and your anime. 😉
Fantastic layout, Scott!
With that kind of talk, I may just have to bring it…
Once I figure out what this story’s about enough to to make a sequential page of art.;)
I’ve added your link as an additional resource.
No worries, man. We try to encourage and lift one another up. It’s what I originally wanted to do with the Art Clash, but we ended up moving literally in the first month. I need to try to do more critiquing for everyone on here. Your critiques inspired me to kick myself in gear and start doing more of what I intended originally for the site. It just helps that the majority of participants live under the same roof I do, so I don’t have to do so much typing at the moment. 😉
Does what I set up work? If not, I’ll change it to whatever works best for you guys.
Now I just to need to do some research and find out what this is about, so I can draw a page…
MY HERO ACADEMIA
Additional information and background for this week’s challenge can be found here.
***A BRIEF NOTE BEFORE WE BEGIN***
Just a reminder that we’re currently in The Art Clash version 1.1. The primary difference in this iteration is each week’s Art Clash will feature two tiers of competition: sequential and pin-up. Anyone entering can choose to illustrate that week’s challenge in a sequential storytelling form (page templates will be provided here) or as a stand-alone, pin-up-style image. Build and illustrate a story of your own around an Art Clash challenge, or wow your audience with a single powerful image. It’s up to you. We want to foster all levels of creativity here, so this will provide an opportunity for all artists to take their work in whatever direction he or she desires and to whatever degree of finishing.
SUBJECT: Illustrate a character(s) or scene(s) from My Hero Academia.
CONCEPT: Regardless of your normal art style, you MUST draw on manga and anime influences for this piece. Sometimes you’ll be asked to draw something in a different style. This is one of those times.
THE ART CLASH is a weekly art challenge. Each TUESDAY a new Art Clash challenge will be posted. You may work in ANY MEDIA you like, but you must stick to the brief of this week’s Art Clash. And please, no posting old work in the Art Clash. This is about encouraging growth through work, so we expect a new piece every time.
Your final art will need to be uploaded to an image hosting service (here are a few I recommend: Imgur, Google Photos and Flickr) and then may be posted here ANY time until SUNDAY evening at MIDNIGHT (EST). Voting begins immediately afterward and polls close on MONDAY at MIDNIGHT (EST). So don’t miss out!
The artist with the most votes for the week by the close of the polls is declared that week’s winner and chooses the next Art Clash.
