I've got a flying machine by DukeOGlue I've got a flying machine by DukeOGlue
I'm really not sure if I like this.

It's been so long since I last uploaded something that I felt "anything would do" so long as I added something to my gallery. Still... I have this weird obsession that anything I upload should be "different". "Original". I've got plenty of drawings that I keep on my hard drive just because I feel I already have enough drawings of various characters standing around in my gallery.
I'm weird like that.

This has been way overdone. I mean... crazy goggled scientist, with a pipe that blows bubbles, on a winged flying bicycle? Jesus H. Christ, man! But, it just stuck in my head and I decided to go through with it. Call it "my rendition".
I like the fact that he stole a little girl's bike (see the basket? yeah, that's how you tell). And I like the color scheme.
Still, it's nice to know that I actually completed something, for a change.

Textures from Mayang's, by the way.

Thank ye kindly (for the fav as well)!
There are also little girly strings hanging off the edge of the handlebars, but those are harder to notice.

I agree with the dearest bunny, 'screw what you think'. That's one of your best pieces; it also satisfies my passion for the past - almost any era, really. So, yes, screw what you think, I'm adding it to my favs and I will pet it and love it. Warm, lovely colours, it smells of Jules Verne. :aww:

I'm not sure if I want this to be one of my best pieces :D
It just... isn't really "me".
Still, I guess it has more character than most (of my work), and so, in a way, I can't help but agree.

Ah... Jules Verne, that's real nice of you to say ;)

OK, here's an idea.
If you like Jules Verne, you could illustrate some of his characters in this style.
Then, it might become more 'you' - since you do like him as a writer...

Even though I'd rather try something new, that's definitely not a bad idea...
I might, I might.

Very nice colour pattern, I like duotone alot. The character is really something from 1920's or so. Great work Dim

Yeah, I like duo(dual?)tone, too. And that was the feeling I was going for, anyway, so 'sall good.
I would've played with the textures, more, if I went at it again. It's not like there was a lot of computer work involved, so I could've spent more time... I just wasn't able to find any cool-looking "old-movie" filters. You know, with dots, and lines running down the image.

Thanks!

When Dim showed to me I said "that's nice" and he got offended cause it wasn't a proper comment :P

So.. "exceptional work sir" is in order here.
No really, it is very nice, I just thought it's gonna have more details like gears n stuff.
