The Tick by GraphicBrat The Tick by GraphicBrat
PLEASE NOTE!!

DA is doing weird stuff for my full view.
Please click the "download button to see the full view
(You will have to do so until I get those people to fix this bug)

Here is something I dug up.
It was a un-finished sketch which I drew out & cleaned up & colored.

Took a little break from all that cheesecake.

I'm asking for advance critique on this one, but...
ARTISTIC CRITIQUES ONLY!!
I don't care if you think I didn't get the 'feel' of the character.
Just tell me how you think it looks. Good & bad. I can take it.

Hope you like.

:) I love the Tick and his catchphrase!
The leaping pose is great! and I like the shading and highlights, but they look a little odd on his left hand. ... Though, I know very little about shading. :P

There are a couple of parts that kinda look a bit strange, namely the left hand, the right upper leg, and (just to me probably) something with the head. But honestly, I like it. The coloring is very well done, musculature is pretty cool too.

Well... the left hand is bigger than the right, and I believe (my opinion) that the shadows are hinding too much of the shape of the leg, making it look funny.

The head... well, he's got a BIG HEAD.

What can i say that hasn't been said before.

The tone is good. The comic version of the tick was
always a darker blue than the one they showed on
the cartoon... so cheers for stickin with the orginal.

Also, I really liked how you did the mouth... that was
always the hardest part when I tried to do him.

Thanks!
I had originally done the lighter blue, but it didn’t feel right. The dark blue was an accident. I had filled the whole screen with the shadow color of the lighter blue. When I saw the dark color, then I knew “This is it! This is the way it’s suppose to be!”

can you change the background that you used... its good, but I wouldn't mind seeing the tick jumping through
famous parts of the world... like the pyramids of egypt....or the san diego bridge.

hell, maybe even dallas texas.

just as a suggestion.

The muscle definition is great, the highlights and shadows are all in the right places. The only thing I feel is a bit off is his right foot (his right not ours) seems a bit awkward. Unless he's got his ankle folded backwards you should still be able to see at least the tip of his toes.

:icongraphicbrat:

Yeah, it the shadows. They're a little too dark. But his right foot is there to about mid-foot.

This is awesome. For some reason, I think you may have used to dark of a blue, but that's not really flaw, I'm just being picky and stupid. AWESOME job. The Tick is the shiz.

The dark blue is based more on the comic, not the cartoon.
Thanks for noticing.

More than like... the composition, use of blur, and a strong posture (high use of foreshortening) adds to the sharp contrasting tones and powerful features of the mighty Tick... it all screams action.
But more than that, it brings back such fond memories... *sigh*
