Howdy yall. I've been thinking about applying to yerf for a while now off and on, and I think maybe I'm ready to try. My art, like everyone elses, has lots of 'happy mistakes' that I'm sure the
feds crits will pick up on. No worries, I'd just rather not apply with stuff that will for sure give me the boot. In any case, I asked some of the people I know what they think about my art and what I should apply with. As you can imagine I didn't get much help. I, unfortunately, got the standard "You're a sure thing" and "It doesn't matter what you apply with". Heh. .. heh.. right. I'd like some honest input here, so that's why I'm posting.
I understand the yerf app rules about file sizes and watermarks and stuff, so don't worry about that. I'll be sure to resize these and remove my watermarks before I apply.
First I'll start with the two that I'm most likely going to apply with:
•Morning Trek - Just as a warning, this is a big file, like 300+k. This was my most recent photoshop painting. It's probably my best painting ever, so it's a definite, it's goin' in the app... unless of course yall think otherwise.
•Serenity This is another big file. These are characters from my comic. I wanted to make it ... kinda cartoon like (like in the comic) but with a realistic flavor. I don't like the clouds. This pic also demonstrates a problem I've had for years -> shading. While I really like this pic, and I think it's detailed pretty well, I think the flaws in it will hurt my chances. But then again, this isn't about what I think.
Okay, now here's the maybes:
•The Princess of Makalu - It's a headshot! Oh no. But it's also one of my most detailed paintings. It's a maybe because it's a headshot, and they're looked down upon. But I'd like to think I made up for it in some of the details.
•Absolute Corruption - BT #11This is the cover of Issue 11 for my comic. Lots of people like this, but again it's got it's problems. But it's not as much of a headshot as ol' Mak is. Look at that cheesy lightning and lack of red reflection in the shirt. Bad enough to keep it out?
•Lore onna Rock- It's that character again! Oh look, I can do traditional work. Hey, check out that BG-wannabe.
•Inner Demons- So you take an RP character, possess him, and then physically alter him to fit the demon within. And what's that demon? No, he's not a mexican hairless, he's just a werewolf that wants to show off his hot werewolfian muscles. The anatomy is bad on this one, and it might as well be a headshot. But look at how cool that BG is! :P
Anyway, that's pretty much all I've got. I do have some better PS paintings, but they've got humans in them. Well really it's the same werefox character that I've shown in these other pics,... she's just, yanno, human.
Lemme know what yall think, and I 'preciate the help.
