....Flash Thompson, VENOM..... by thelearningcurv ....Flash Thompson, VENOM..... by thelearningcurv
From a bully of Peter Parker to a friend, from a decorated soldier who lost his legs to a government agent, Flash Thompson has become a character that has grown a great deal from his beginnings. He is now the new Venom, and with the loss of his legs, he uses the Symbiote to take on those that the government deems a threat.

FYI, i got some help creating the costume as I did by checking out the images on this page [link] .... thought I'd shout them out for the help=]

The Good
1. Good drawing
2. Good proportions
3. Good framing of Flash with the smoke
4. Good colors
5. Good smoke

The Bad
1. Twinning; Flash's arms arm too symmetrical
2. Too vertical/up and down
3. Flash is dead center
4. Foreshortening isn't strong
5. Lots of wasted negative space

1. Have one arm moving forward and one backward creating depth, also block and cube out legs (a little stumpy). Maybe have some tendrils coming towards the reader and trailing from the direction Venom came from as well.
2. Zoom in and tilt Venom so he's slightly off center and uses up that wasted space.
3. Bend back arm for more rhythm.

What do you think?

Hey man. These turned out all right. One thing I noticed: your inks indicated a lot of really sharp contrast and a clear light direction with cast shadows and hard blacks. In colors, I'd like to see some of that definition and sharpness carried through. And I'd definitely like to see the light source that's making those shadows.
thelearningcurv Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2012
gotcha, I will keep that in mind and try and work toward that in my next piece.... I tend to do the light sources off picture, but you are right, it would be interesting to see what caused it=]

Even if the light source is off the camera, you would see some secondary effects like rimlights and specular highlights.

As expected, this turned out to be an "awesomer" piece because you did the colors just right. And oh! I'd have to mention I love that wicked smirk :D
