Kios on Table Comparison by Godsartist
Kios on Table Comparison
So, I uploaded the original image, the one on the right, last week. But I felt something was missing. It was supposed to be a bad guy hideout, but it was way to bright, so I added some atmospheric colors and some textures to the background. The atmospheric color, I think, really gave it the dark vibe I wanted and the textures gave it the grittier more weathered feel. I think the original image could have used the background texture, either way, to give it a less flat feeling.

Well, What do you guys think is the revamped image on the left better and an improvement or do you like the original piece on the right?

I hope you like the revamped one because I think it helps accomplish the feeling I was going for. Do you guys know a better way to get a darker atmosphere in your art?

God Bless you guys! I hope you enjoy!

Kios Bust'n In by Godsartist
Kios Bust'n In
UPDATE! I added some textures and some atmospheric colors. I wanted it to be a bit darker and gritty because it's a bad guy hand out.

So, I got a nock off brand of a Wacom Cintiq a few months ago.  A computer screen that you can draw directly on. I'll be honest I've been wanting to draw an image completely in digital form, from sketch to finish, for a while now. But I was so scared or stressed about making one that I never did. This may come to you guys as a surprise, but when I think of doing a new comic book page, drawing something new, or drawing in some new way I become very anxious to the point that I put things off until I can't anymore. I am not sure why I have this anxiety, maybe I am afraid the picture won't turn out very good, or I'm afraid the finished piece won't be as good as I wanted it to be and the whole thing will have been a waste of time, or I just won't be able to do some type of technique correctly or something won't look the way it should. But no matter what I struggle with this anxiety in my art, but it is usually only at the beginning of the piece I am doing. Like a voice telling me you might as well not start drawing this or doing this because it will stink, so I don't. But when I start drawing and get further and further in the piece I feel less and less stress. WELL, sorry, I'm rambling. So because of this anxiety I put off drawing a completely digital piece until one day my younger brother came over and I let him try out my drawing screen. He started sketching out a superhero and I was like that looks fun and not stressful at all. So I decided to give it a try. I started with Kios, the guy in the middle, and thats all it was going to be, but then i thought it would be cool if he landed on the center of the bag guys table when they were having a meeting. So the sketch kept getting bigger and bigger. I drew the hand in front an the table, then the two bad guys at the table, then Kios' allies coming in the window. Let me tell you something sketching digitally is sweet. You are able select characters and transform them and that is so much more helpful then having to erase and redraw the whole thing on paper. It did end up taking longer then traditional drawing but I'm pretty sure it's because I'm just getting acclimated, but this is my first completely digital piece. I actually used three different programs to make this, Photoshop CS3, SketchBook Pro, and Manga Studio 5 Ex. I use  photoshop to color my pictures all the time, but I knew nothing about, SketchBook and Manga Studio. So they took some getting used to. I think I like Manga studio the Best for drawing and finished lines, but Sketchbook is also nice, I really like the french curve tools. It just wasn't enough like Photoshop for me and was missing features I wanted. I hope you guys like this pic, sorry for venting, but I think this is the first time I have ever shared my drawing anxiety. God Bless you guys.

Four Armed Shocksquatch by Godsartist
Four Armed Shocksquatch
This is my last installment of the Ben 10 images. I know I said my last image was the last one but I felt there was to much negative space in the main picture above Way Bigs shoulder, so I decided to add these guys to the image. Plus it makes 10 aliens in all on the main image. If you notice in the main image the older/ original aliens are on the left and the newer aliens are on the right. Heres a link to the main image godsartist.deviantart.com/art/… These are another two characters that me and my sons pretend to be when we are play fighting. I hope you guys enjoy! May God Bless You Guys, and may you come to know Jesus as your Savior!

Ben 10 and His Posse by Godsartist
Ben 10 and His Posse
So this is the finished Ben 10 picture I've been working on. You know what? Placing these characters just right, so it looked just right, really took quite longer than I thought it would. But in the end I think it was worth it and I think it turned out nice. I hope you guys like it. God Bless!

XLR8 and Crash Hopper by Godsartist
XLR8 and Crash Hopper
Another Fanart for Ben 10 Omniverse. These are last characters from the larger piece I am doing. All the characters I am drawing are aliens that my sons and I pretend to be when we play fight. XLR8 is a classic, he's one of Ben's first aliens and he's one of my sons favs. On the other hand Crashhopper is one of my favs. He's one of the newest aliens in Omniverse and he's just cool. I hope you enjoy! God Bless!
