I'm not a professional illustrator, so I'll really appreciate any comment about my work.

Very nice work! The drawing is pretty much perfect from my point of view.

Very nice work, Wedhro. I especially liked the detail on the ogre.

Thank you. It was a real pain to do that!

I really enjoy this thread - kudos to the artists. Sadly, I have no real criticism otherwise, nor would that be especially wise to listen to someone who still struggles with stickfigures, but I do really like all the art here and had to say it... or type it as the case may be.

Keep up the great work!

I used to draw character and monster portraits just to let my players know how they look like.
Later, I realized that full-lenght, white background, coloured drawings would be suitable as cardboard miniatures, just like the following ones...

Feel free to use my art as miniatures (or whatever)! Unfortunately I'm a lazy artist, but I'll keep posting my future work as soon as I can.

Stygian, I can't draw a straight line with a ruler. And no, my curves aren't any better, they're more like bulbous protuberances. I do my work in 3d because 99% of the hard stuff is already done (it's just expensive). But, I'm willing to post my "work" here in case someone else says "hey, I can use that!" or "hey, that would be perfect for my game if it had X instead of Y!"

People like Bergjylt, Bookman's Friend, Storn, Sydney, Wedhro, Wicked Lurker, and Zorg (sorry if I missed anyone, I did a quick thread scan), can actually draw, which requires artistic ability. And criticisim, when honest, doesn't matter who it's from or how artistic they are. You may have an idea or a remark that could take a picture from meerly good to spectacular.

Don't sell yourself short just because you struggle with stickmen. And don't feel you can't give a suggestion.

Here is an enemy MonkeyFist had us fighting in our last Supers game.
This was another robot we saw right at the end of the first fight.
