I TRIED to drew an Alex Kralie... by V2AUZoltanKhan I TRIED to drew an Alex Kralie... by V2AUZoltanKhan

...and failed miserably. HOLY CRUD! This was a nightmare to produce. I don't know what to say other than I wanted to try coloring again, and I failed miserably. I drew this because I was listening to a review of Marble Hornets by Night Mind and remembered the good old days of Marble Hornets, when it was actually scary and interesting before Season 3 came and butchered the series. But this took three days to color, and my computer kept crashing, and I kept waking up horribly and I'm so angry right now. This turned out like crap. I need to improve. PLEASE critique this, tell me how to improve. If you can't critique it, then get out! I'm serious, get out.

Hey, this is pretty nice, especially the words and the shades. I really love dark shades, because they make the picture more "dramatic" and they are also a symbol of Alex' character. I think he is like a shadow; it's hard to realize his true personality. Moreover the different sizes of the scrip underline important parts, like in a collage.

I read that you've asked for constructive critic, so I would say that his neck is a little bit too long, or maybe it seems so because of the shadows. For me it looks like the glasses are “higher” than the eyes as well. This is a bit confusing…

But these are very small “critics”; all in all it’s really cool!

I’m very interested in your prospective drawings, just try and draw your own comic! :)

Yeah, obviously proportions and anatomy are not my strong suit as are coloring ^^;

And trust me, I WILL be uploading a comic book soon. Just give me a bit to finish it up :P

No Problem, you can learn proportions easily, much more easily than coloring ;)

The shading is good, the lines are straight. The words give everything this "movie poster" look. I like that

You're tried and you made it! Nice coloring and nice idea for drawing. I don't like Alex because he became like psychopath, but I really like how you draw him.

Yeah, me too. I always got the impression he was killing everyone because he was under the influence of the Operator. I felt like that was a moment of clarity for him, like he finally snapped out of the Operator's control, had NO idea what just happened (he thinks the Operator killed Seth, not him) and he feels regret and horror. :O I don't know, that's just a thought.

I'm just gonna say up front that I have no idea what this character is from, so I can't really say too much about this. The one thing I will say is the shading might be a little over powering here, specifically on the face. I feel like there might be a bit much under the eye, it's making it hard to see some of the lines and it's a little confusing to look at.
I think the details on the jacket and shirt look very nice, though. :)

Thanks, I KNEW the drawing was bad in terms of the lineart, I may need to practice again. I kind of made the LINEART in a drowsy stupor now that I think of it :facepalm:

This character is Alex Kralie from the YouTube series "Marble Hornets", which you can see HERE: www.youtube.com/user/MarbleHor…

I'm always drawing in a drowsy stupor. XD I usually end up drawing at late hours, typically around 11pm to 4am, possibly to 6 or 7 if I'm really absorbed in what I'm doing. If I have inspiration for something and I'm actually getting somewhere, I will short myself on sleep because I know if I stop I'm never going to end up finishing what I'm working on. Probably not the best habit to have. :'D

Something I should note though, is that while you didn't like this you did post it anyways. I think that's a good thing. I used to not do that, if I had a drawing that wasn't turning out well I'd just abandon it. Eventually I made the decision to post everything I made(well, nearly everything), no matter what I thought of it. This forced me to at least follow through with my drawing until it was presentable, instead of giving up halfway. It also encouraged me to keep going, and helped me to improve a lot. I really don't do that much anymore, but it definitely helped me starting out. I also had to teach myself to be less picky with some things. I found that if I obsess over every single line until I get it as close to 'perfect' as I can, then whenever I look at it even if it's finished, I'm still looking at the lines and mentally correcting them and wishing I could have done them better.

Hmmm, you're right. :? I should keep doing that then. Thanks for the two cents. :)

Of course. :) Sorry it got so long. I tend to just type what I'm thinking and it gets longer and longer until my train of thought eventually stops on it's own, or I realize it's turned into an essay.. XD

No no, I'm glad you were that thorough :) It helps me understand how to make my artwork BETTER. :D

I don't know if I'd really call it thorough. When I type as I'm thinking like that I tend to leave half finished thoughts and things that don't make sense.
Just do keep in mind that these are just some ideas. I myself am still learning, so any advice I can give may be flawed.
