Teen Titans GO - RSJ and Jman by jman2004 Teen Titans GO - RSJ and Jman by jman2004
A slightly new version of the original, this time brighter and the title colors changed. For starters, Jason Farrington suggested that the title have yellow text instead of blue. Second, I was lucky enough to ask Fred Perry of Antarctic Press' "Gold Digger" fame. He offered some worthwhile critiques:

---
The teen titans picture was really well done. Professional quality.
The lighting and coloring on the characters are of the calibre of anything I've seen in diamond previews most profiled books. I would have spiced up the bg some. It can be colorful as long as it's lighter, and the line weights of the characters lets you really go nuts with the background. Since green and violet seem to dominate the page, I might have had fire-style speed line explosion for a background and had a secondary lightsource from behind striking all the characters.
Not really anything to fix this picture. It's not broke.
Just what I would do.

F.

PS. Terra is sooo cute up there!

---

All great advice, and I want to learn, so here are the changes. :) Hopefully you'll find this an improvement over the last one. :D

I think my only advice on this picture would be that Starfire's leg looks like it should be moved just a little bit, the one that's by Robin's hand, because of the current placement it looks like he's holding her up.

Other than that, beautiful job!

Ha! I never heard the word Nigrolicious before, but I'm guessing it's a good word. As for raven, I wish she was bigger too, but that's how RSJ drew her in this pic. You should see his other renderings of her, though. Will definitely make up for it. Glad that you liked the pic!

I love it, but it bothers me than Raven's always the smallest (in the background) in all TT posters. :(

Ah well ^^ wonderfully drawn

Man, your digital coloring/lighting skills kick major butt! This is awesome, so vibrant and energetic! What program do you use for coloring?

:iconjman2004:
jman2004 Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2005
Really appreciate it, especially coming from Miss Hypa herself! I use photoshop to color; the highlight cuts are done using the lasso and the path tool. I then convert those paths into selections. Am happy with this version - it's much brighter than the original.

Networking, man... it's all about being at the right places and making friends witht he right people at the right time with the hot stuff.
Took Robert Frost 20 years working on a farm before he got his first published gig. And he's a legendary pioneer of american poetry.

Y'know - I think I can be at the right place, make friends with the right people at the right time... just not so sure about the hot stuff. ^_^;

You make a very good point, tho. I think that's why the twins asked me to attend Otakon this year. Are you going? I hope so.

What Kid says is right, too. I'll just keep doing my thing. Maybe someday it'll make a daily deviation...then I'll be a celebrity! Juuuuust like Vanilla Ice... ;D

Oh definately just keep doing your thing. Just don't get your hopes up about the Daily Deviation making you an instant star. From what I hear from other artist friends like *foursyte and ~lilykane, you get flooded with messages for a day, then it's back to the obscurity you came from. ^^;

No, I think the only real way to make a name for yourself is the old fashion way. Hustle. Network. Schooze. Interact.
Participate in the chat rooms.
Post on the forums.
Make friends.
They last alot longer that the Daily Deviations do. ^^;

Naw - I figured that the daily dev was 15 minutes of fame...seems like doing my thing is the only way to go. Made some friends here, including you if it's cool to say so. That's all good. Hopefully I'll get to try another one of your drawings.

Glad that you like it, man! As for crits and suggestions, don't hesitate to let me know how to improve it. Coloring this drawing was a great lesson, and I appreciate your sharp linework - hopefully the Farrington twins will say it passed their test.
