Topic: The Arts / Jazz Jackrabbit art thread.

The colours could do with more tones, as they’re kinda flat at the moment. Some shadows and highlights on the greens and browns would look good.

Really, there’s nothing spectacular about the piece, and it overall just feels empty, despite having so much going on. Maybe that’s due to the lack of a clear focal point? Really define where the focal is more. In this instance, you could add more detail to the rabbits, or position them on the rule of thirds, for example.

Topic: The Arts / 2 new tags (sigs)


ToTW (or whatever it’s called now) for FringeFX. Technology theme, really tricky to find and indeed use this stock.


Just a random little tag to get back into it

Some feedback would be great.
Stock images of the focals were used.

Topic: The Arts / (want feedback) Long time, no see...

In reply to petesahooligan:

Woah, calm down dude. If it bothers you this much, I can remove it.
I didn’t want to cause argumentation, I just wanted feedback on how well I had created the tag.

This art style is the one I am most familiar with (in digital art) and so is what I decided to create as practice; seeing as I haven’t made anything for ages.
I understand that it isn’t the same as creating your own work 100%, and why you don’t prefer it, however, it’s more for me, re-learning the basics, and receiving feedback on how well I’ve achieved that.

Perhaps you’d like to help me create ‘my own’ work by linking me to somewhere useful to start, or pieces you find inspiring?


Aware that I’ve done the text wrong, but unsure on what I’ve really done wrong.
I think it may be the actual text, not the placement, but I’m not overly sure.

If someone could help with that, it’d be appreciated.

Did you create the character as well? (When you say, “apart from the render,” what do you mean?)

Ahh, thanks for clearing that up.
And no, the character is the render, sorry for the confusion.


MoonlaughMaster, ikr, been ages; I’m surprised that anyone is still here.

And thanks, I was kinda thinking that as I made it, but I wasn’t sure what I could of added. I’ll have a go, but any suggestions on how to make him interact better would be great, as every time I add something it looks bad.

Which effect do you mean by “watermark-like” because I’m not too sure which you mean?

…Or art for that matter.


blah blah blah


First thing for over a long time

Rate, critic, steal, do whatever you want, although I could do with some useful feedback.

All was made 100% in photoshop apart from the render

I should start making tags again, instead of being lazy and pumping out this shit

Just found the stock online.

Hey, I haven’t been on here in, what seems like months.
So yeh, I’ll just dump any art I do here.
I’ll probably continue to if this thread gets anyone actually looking at it and posting, if not, I’ll probably just let it die or whatever; starting with

I’ll do requests of avatars and such too, but I’m not amazingly active.

My other art can be found here

Girl is a render I found, a couple of C4D’s in there, but that’s it…

Topic: The Arts / Looking for drawer - for my new online game!

I have a few questions:

What style of art?
Do you have a demo of the game so we can see how it plays etc?
Do you have any other games currently out at all?

I’m sure others will have questions too

Looking much better. Contrast and such looks good now.

Literally, the top-left most part of the tag, just blur, like, a lot.
It is really sharp and has more contrast than the focal, which is distracting. If you don’t know where I mean, ask, and I’ll circle it or something :L I didn’t explain that well

Topic: The Arts / Which style is better?

Personally, I prefer the one on the left. It just looks more appealing because the lines are smoother and the shading is cleaner.

Topic: The Arts / [group] DRAGON ART - All Are Welcome!

Looking much nicer.

Lighten the face slightly so it stops the text stealing the focal.
And move the text down a touch, so the ‘I’ is near/underish the hand.

Only thing that would still look wrong after that would by the C4D in the top left, which is still stealing some attention as it is a bit brighter than the others.

Two more. For both, got halfway through, ran outta inspiration, finished off as best I could. Not the best renders either.

Quoted so the tags were on the next page ^
Probably just me, I don’t really like the one-colour style.

Tag 1:
Nice compo, basics etc.
C4D in the top left it distracting, blur it, or smudge it, or something.
Sharpen face slightly
Full B+W, then increase contrast.
Add some lighting, atm it is a bit boring, as it is flat.
I can’t tell how good the text is, because it steals the focal atm due to being colour.

Tag 2:
Focal is unclear, because you appear to have moved it to the hand, which is interesting, but leaves the face trying to steal the focal.
Sexy effects btw ;)
Again, the colour annoys me.
Compo is a little weird, I’d move the hand (render, whatever) up more, which might also help stop the face stealing focal.
Add some lighting.



Tried to play around with the top-right to fix it.
