It is really beautiful, I don't have words to say how perfect and incredible that is your drawing. I like it so much.

The background is interesting, the clock is perfect and gives a 3D effect with the luminosity in it. The manecillas of the clock have a nice design, very detail but excellent.

He is amazing, his design is so.... wow I'm impressed, all the details, clothes, posture, hair.

The clothes/armor are excellent, well done, and the thing that have on the head is beautiful, also de sword.

Amm, I don't know what else to say, I think that your drawing is so amazing and perfect completely.

PD: The colors that you use go very well with the essence to the drawing.


Sorry again for the delay n.nU

This picture looks awesome! I like the way you drew the armor and the clock background. It could do with a few more details in some areas like the poles next to the clock and the (cape thing?). But all in all it looks just wonderful, especially for a pencil drawing!
By the way I do not see why you drew it with a green background. I think it would've looked better with a basic color, maybe gray or some rustic color.
Another thing is the pose of the character. Is he just posing? It's just hard to comprehend these types of poses. You drew it well, but I just think the pose is awkward.
All in all though, this picture is quite amazing and I can just imagine all the work you put into this. I can't wait to see more of your amazing work!

This is the first Critique I've ever given, so please bear with me if I make any mistakes. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>

I love the details in the armor, clock and everything else. There is very good movement in this piece I feel. My eyes are instantly drawn to the reflective surfaces of the clock face and sword blade. The highlights stand out very well, and the play of shadows renders a very "realistic" or authentic feel. The use of the gears in the background add nicely to a sense of the clocks mechanics (and lets face it, what's Steampunk without gears added into the mix <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/w/w…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="387" title=";) (Wink)"/> ). The choice of making the paper appear more sepia creates a more aged look to the picture as well.

Overall I really like the details and movement of this picture, and it makes me feel even more humble about my skill with a pencil. <img class="avatar" src="a.deviantart.net/avatars/o/n/o…" alt=":icononibowplz:" title="onibowplz" />

Oh wow. I can barely make my hands type with this beauty before me. The way that you make things shine, the way that you make things move, the way that you imbue beauty... I can hardly breathe... Everything is at once delicate, and yet strong. A very pleasing though contradictory mix. The lines are crisp and clear, and this gives an extra edge of authority to his figure. You definitely have the Steampunk persona etched into every line. The metallic reflection all over brings unanimity to this work, as does the charisma. I love the expression you gave to him. Beautifully done!

You've done a great job with the definition. Strong lines and alternation of thin the thick black lines as the outline give the image a clear definition. The cross-hatching and the highlighting of the folded cloth to show valleys and ridges in the fabric was very well done. The gleam of the sword and the metal armor provide a nice sense of 3-D in the knight. However, this isn't the same for the clock behind him. Although the gleam of the glass surface is realistic and adds to the picture's impact, and the definition of the clock itself is praise-worthy—especially the deliberate way the Roman numerals are placed—the pillars behind the clock are oddly flat. The drawing style makes it easy to see that the clock is in front of the pillars, but, especially on the left, despite the base showing sighs of roundness the actual pillar has little or no definition of shape.

However, this does not detract from the quality of the picture. The image is striking, and the title appropriate. Good job, and keep up the wonderful work.

This is my first critique so I hope it's helpful! First off great line work you managed to get that spot on. Your composition is also working well, but I found that the darker color in the vest/jacket does draw you eye because it is a lot heavier than the rest of your drawing.

But it is minor thing as you have positioned the eye well and it is working well as a focal point. I would have also moved the clock hand on the right(characters left) to twelve o'clock that way it leads you into the composition instead of pointing out of it.

Another good point is the lighter green, bottom of the clock frame and the character together create a strong triangle composition which is also good, with regards to leading the viewers eye around the image, to the focal point, his face. It also helps create a sense of power for the character.

Other than that I think it's a great piece and a really well rendered piece!

How do you color these in the computer program? Like what settings do you work with. Everytime i try and put a layer on multiple over a traditional piece whenever i go over a sketched line it gets darker.

I forgot to link to the tutorial in the image, but i did it now. Here's how i did it: And yes, it does get darker, that's why i use very light colors and i also have them on a pretty low opacity. If you still have questions, just drop a comment :heart:
