RM Skill: Intermediate
Wow. Just wow. Everything sounds so professional, much better then on some major titles. If you don't mind me using this? and if I give you credit, both as St3rnb0rn and under your real name? I'll give a link to the youtube vids and forum if you let me. The game wont be for sale. This music mixed with some original pieces it would greatly enhance my game. This is seriously amazing.
The music I would like to use is anything you are not using for your project.

[Show/Hide] Front Mission Fangame Recruitment, any help is appreciated
I recently started a new project called Front Mission: Blitz Konflikt, which means Light Conflict in english, and I'm accepting any help possible, whether it be scripts, sprites, animations, facesets, I'm in need of resources. PM me if you have any questions about it, or if you want to help/join the project, I'll give massive credit at the end. Thanks.

I think the style looks great, and the hair looks good. The part that needs work is the fact that you need to decide where the light source is at and shade everything to reflect (no pun intended) that source. So, while a lot of it is correct, the light seems to be coming from the bottom-right. So shading needs to be more prominent on the top-left. Some of the shading happens at unbalanced intervals. A good idea would be to check this tutorial out and see what part you can improve. =]
It looks great, that bandage bugs me though.. it doesn't wrap around the head cleanly, it has a little bit of a point at right jaw (from his perspective) and on top of his ear has a bit of a point upwards. His expression creeps me out, I think he wants to exploit me D:
@X-M-O: Thanks for the reply! I am really bad at lightsources and shading. I saved the tutorial and I'll make sure to follow it closely for my next coloured picture! Hopefully you'll be able to spot a minor improvement, at the least.
@Shadyone: Yeah, I'm terrible at drawing proper bandages/clothing/folds. I tried to make it that some of the hair from the back of his head stuck out behind the bandage, but it looks a bit wonky, I agree!
Here's a picture I was drawing/working on yesterday. The sketch took about 15 minutes (which is really fast for being me). I haven't done much with the lineart yet so some of the lines look jaggy if you zoom in. It was mostly to practice full-body poses, female anatomy and clothing-folds, which I'm also having trouble with.

Random picture. Practiced hands (I'm abyssmal at drawing hands! ) and lightsources. I was going to try to do some fancy stuff with the hair but I didn't quite think through the pose and the hand sorta made it too hard >_>
@X-M-O: Thanks for the advice! I think that I could probably work with tattoos and jewerly to begin with. I doubt I could draw a proper looking animal (yet) as I still struggle with human anatomy
This is a random story that I started writing. I find that when it comes to writing a proper novel or similar kind of storytelling my vocabulary is lacking. Especially if I compare my swedish works with the english ones. So I wrote this mostly to see if it was noticeable that english wasn't my native language. The story isn't finished, but I didn't feel like posting a massive wall of text, so I took a little bit to start with
The City in Ashes
It’s just another night, like any other. The city is as desolate and sepulchral as yesterday. You can feel the chilling, but familiar, breeze that seems to be following along the empty streets. The currents create a hauntingly beautiful sound that feels oddly like the agonizing screams that this city once was known for. In the obscurity it looks like the vines growing on the sidewalk take the shape of people seeking sanctuary in the darkness. An odd flickering streetlight serves as our guiding star in this despairing atmosphere. Navigating the wide cracks in the road could prove troublesome for some, but I’ve walked this road a multitude of times before.
I always try to stay sane, but it saddens me to see this place in such state. I tend to ignore what this city symbolizes, or rather, what it has become. I still see it as my home. Is that too morbid? Many would probably argue that it is, but I won’t let others opinions overshadow my judgement.
Hayley is holding my arm as tight as she can as we walk over the terrace. She knows just as well as I do, that we’re being watched. In every window of every building, you can see their azure eyes following our every movement. I suppose it should worry me the same way it worries Hayley, but I can’t say that I mind walking around with a hypothetical bull’s eye on my back. Being the prey of a predator is my favourite blood sport. The reason why I’m carrying a leather pouch with gunpowder isn’t to use it for ammunition, but to lure out the beasts. They recognize the strong scent of the gunpowder and relate it to human flesh. Unfortunately, they’ll be disappointed.
- “Aren’t you worried that they’ll come for us?” She asked with a slight stutter on her voice. - “Nah, don’t worry sis. Even if they do, you’re in good hands.” - “I guess you’re right”
Hayley is a goodhearted girl. She deserves a home more than anyone. She’s far too graceful for this place. It’s demoralizing to think that I can fight off these disgusting beasts like they were nothing, just to protect her, but I can’t do anything to save her from this filthy hellhole. I’ve wanted to help her ever since I met her. Well, you could say that I did help her, but at this pace it looks like we’re going to be spending the rest of our existence as outlaws.
As we were getting closer to the plateau I felt Hayley’s excitement rising in form of painful pinches in my left arm. For now, I let her. It’s not every day I get to see her in such a good mood. It brings me joy to see that she still can find a shed of light in this, otherwise funereal city. There’s something about this girl that makes me want to keep on going. Maybe it’s the way she tries to convince me that no matter how bad we have it, it can’t get worse than her previous life. Before I liberated her from her father. Yeah, by “liberated” I mean dismembering him slowly limb by limb. If you still haven’t picked up on the fact that I’m not an elegant or courtly guy, that should do the job. Her father was nothing but a despicable vermin who didn’t deserve his life. This might seem slightly hypocritical coming from someone who kills people for a living, I know. I did it for her and she's thankful for it. I stopped walking for a brief moment and Hayley looked at me with a puzzled look.
- “You know, Hayley? Once I have enough money to buy you a better life, I will. I promise.” - “You’re working too hard! You know that I’m happy as long as I can be with you.” She replied.

Another one! I spent longer on this one than I normally do. It might be noticeable, it might not. I also tried to make some nicer looking lineart >_>. I think I have the shading under control for the most bit. I might be completely off though, still practicing.
Also, those aren't meant to be bandages, but I'm pretty bad at drawing clothing folds so it turned out to look more like bandages than anything else >_<.
Also... Hands... ...
EDIT: Oh and also some failed anatomy...
EDIT2: Oh dear. I didn't realize the scribble-doodly-man was so huuuuge!
