Thanks dude, that's what I was going for.
I was trying to go for a darker ambience, but I just couldn't get the lighting right. It think I need to add some more detail into the background to make it work better. =D

It might sound a little dumb, but take a crack at starting with a black background and draw from there. When I was doing Security, I was putting a 70% black background behind everything so I could see if I missed any spots while doing the shading. Without intending it to, it gave the pages that automatic sombre/dark feel without arduously trying to put it in at the end around everything else. It requires you thinking sort of opposite to usual, ie drawing in the light rather than the dark, but if you're going for a dark setting, it gets you halfway there straight off the bat.

As for the pic, I gotta admit dood, you surprised me. With gore as the theme I thought you'd have about 75% of the pic red. Nothing wrong with the pic being reserved, just didn't think that's what you'd go for. I was at least expecting a drill... :D

I like the detail in this, the sketchy parts fill out some form nicely. The hanging body could use a bit more detail though. And perhaps some sort of motion applied to it as it's being disemboweled. Feels a little 'still' considering :D Also, is that a human skull in the top left corner? That could kinda use a lot more detail :D

Overall, nice pic. It could definitely use a much darker atmosphere and perhaps some blood splatter here and there, but you already know that.

Ok yeah, so start with a dark background and fill in from there. That makes sense to me as I find that it's hard for me to add a dark background into an image at the end as all the colours only seem to work with a light background, because that's what I was looking at at the time of creation. So I guess I'd use a kind of lighter grey colour for the line art or something?

Yeah, I was going to go for a splattered gore kind of thing, and honestly if I had of kept working on this one it would of, but I was starting to get over it so I wrapped it up. It should really have an ambience of a dark chamber, with lots more "parts" hanging up on the walls and shit. So I settled for 'creepy' kind of thing.

Also yes, that is a skull, but not explicitly human. That was the start of me doing the background stuff, it was there primarily to create depth, as it is supposed to be in the foreground. But there's nothing else hanging up or anything, so you probably don't get that feeling from it.

Upsidedown dismembered bodies are a little difficult to draw. =P But yeah, it definitely looks too flat. I agree on the motion also, but don't really know how to convey it.

Cheers man. I'll probably revisit this one and work on it some more.


Oh, by the way. I really like this new critiquing Mark! I'm getting lots of valuable feedback from him. =D

All good baby. Kinda liberating, this brutal honesty :D

Sorry about my late entry, I managed to entirely forget about it yesterday. I had to work back tonight and couldn't be stuffed doing anything now. I'll whip it up tomorrow, I have a cool idea for it :D
