  1. Nice one Dec. I'd really like to see you branch out and evolve with your fill. With a lot of positive space close together in this piece I reckon you could get some mad effects on with that.
  2. Yeah, I reckon I'll go with Resto on this one as well.
  3. @Azteka; reads like Curse to me and yes, it is bangin. Look forward to the finish product but I also really enjoy seeing outlines before the colour is added like this.
  4. Maybe you could reduce the arrogance a little, look back through the thread for about 50 or so pages and check out the standards that have gone before you instead of expecting everyone to conform to your standards. Prob best to play along on this idea, mate.
  5. Going to risk upsetting more folk and suggest that Chiro might want to hit the toy thread for some practice as well. Not trying to be a tool here but the general standard in letter structure, balance, colour choice, GENERAL TIDINESS AND PRESENTATION, fill and a bunch of other aspects need to be respected a bit more in this thread. It's called the "New sketch thread" as there was an older one that was lost in the meltdown. Simple stuff has to be 100% squared away here, stuff such as uniform bar width unless there is a deliberate flow to a letter should be observed. Highlights can't be just chucked in, they have to be placed to actually look like there is light bouncing off a physical shape (or an artistic interpretation of that idea) rather than applied simply to tick a box. Pieces have to be designed for intrinsic reasons not as following a formula. I don't mean to get all formal or even artsy here, but I reckon there should be a basic standard of what we see in this thread based on an aspiration to hit heights, not to simply be viewed. About 5% of my sketches ever hit this thread simply because I don't think they make the grade. It's my suggestion that others also use a stricter criteria for posting items in here. Just my 2c, not my intention to cause any tears or Umads with this.
  6. Ah, would I upset anyone if I suggested that Meconium would benefit from posting in the toy thread for the time being? Without trying to be a prick I think the reasons are obvious.
  7. Nice one man, really feeling that H!! I'm out of town doing the Xmas thang right now, will get yours up as soon as I get back home.
  8.

  9. YEah, the Canberra thread apparently died ages back and no one voiced any concerns that I post them in here.
  10. [insert grumpy Ernest Borgnine.jpg] ...
  11. Some of the local legal kit IMG_7992 by jiangtaixi, on Flickr IMG_7993 by jiangtaixi, on Flickr IMG_7987 by jiangtaixi, on Flickr IMG_7991 by jiangtaixi, on Flickr IMG_7989 by jiangtaixi, on Flickr IMG_7990 by jiangtaixi, on Flickr IMG_7994 by jiangtaixi, on Flickr IMG_7995 by jiangtaixi, on Flickr IMG_7996 by jiangtaixi, on Flickr
  12. Other than that, I'd agree with pretty much everything that you've said. I'm less worried about in experienced folk with weapons (as they are usually pretty apprehensive about using them and are not likely to fire unless its life and death). It's the gung ho idiots and angry people who lose their discipline that I worry about. They may legally carry but booze, pride and emotion can turn a law abiding carrier in to a dickhead real quick. I remember reading some stats (yes I know) years ago in Aust. that said a large element of firearm crimes were committed by lawful owners in moments of passion in their own homes. The main offending weapon was a .22 rifle and the main victims were spouses (wives), family members or close acquaintances and alcohol was very often a prominent factor in the issue. I'm talking at least a decade ago, though. Was just an interesting piece of information, not trying to draw any conclusions either way from it, just shooting the shit, so to speak. Kind of got off the track of conceal weapons, I guess. Sorry about that.
  13. Place is already pulling itself apart. Google Hashemi and al-IRaqiya. The general result of the invasion of Iraq is that the US has handed Iraq to the Iranians. If the Alawite rule in Syria doesn't collapse Iran will own Lebanon, Syria and Iraq. Have a look at a map and ask yourself what that means. I don't have an opinion on whether the invasion was right or wrong but I do think that the stategic outcome is negative for US interests and their allies in the region.
  14. Holy fucking christ that is hilarious, best thing I've seen so far.
  15. Yeah. that's got to be one of the most impressive things that I've seen on the side of a train for a long time.
  16. I like the letters but I think the lines around the outside make it all too busy and decrease the value of the letters/flow.
  17. Shit, you're right, I didn't pick up on that. The bottom horizontal bar of the F is far too thick and should be lower at the top. Goddamnit, that is going to bug the shit out of me now.
  18. Castro is nowhere near a super villain. You gotta be in the league of Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Cheney, Niyazov and Bush to reach super villain status. Anyway, there are of course still super villains, first and foremost is Kim Jong-un. Then there's Mullah Omar, Ayatollah Khamenei/Ahemdinijad, Al Zawahiri, Obama, Nasrallah, etc. I'm joking about Bush and Obama.
  19. Yeah the hands are done so two little kids can actually read it. Not that my hands are that great anyway, though.
  20. YEah, I was writing Rome you were writing Fashn. I've got about 30mins of work left on yours so let me know when you're done and I'll get this past the finish line and onsite for the jury to bounce on.
