Treasure Hunter Marine by RedBlooper Treasure Hunter Marine by RedBlooper
This was a quick experiment with a style that I've been wanting to use for some time. I was looser with the linework, which felt very natural and free. I was also going for a more stylized approach, which also felt natural to me. I also added a bit of texture to give it an old maritime feel as well.

I could go much more extreme than this if I try hard enough. It's unlikely I'll keep using this style, but tell me what you guys think. :)

I think you should stick with this style from here on out. It looks like one of your characters just jumped into the Wind Waker universe. :)

You want me to be honest? This is probably one of the best pieces I've seen from you thus far.

The grasp on using design to express personality here is downright intimidating. I love how the very heroic pose, athletic anatomy, and stark cell shading counter her otherwise tired eyes and mellow smile; essentially the meat and potatoes of Marine's adventurous-yet-amiable as you described it. Apart from that, there's your usual superb sense of line weight, as well as some exquisite use of muted complimentary colours and weight in her structure. I honestly can't turn my eyes away from this half of the time.

A job well done, sir.

Oh wow, thanks for your comments man. I do admit that I personally like drawing in this style more than my current "rounded" style, though I think I need to tweak a few things to make this kind of look appear more unique. Anyway, I'll keep experimenting with this look and see where it goes.

I do like the use of black in the figure. It's gives off her dimensions very well, as well as make the clothing stand out. Very good, I'd say!

Woah, at first I could've sworn this was :iconthemrock:'s take on Marine but then I noticed your icon. =P This experimental/stylized version looks great! Really stunning work on this. :nod: Although regarding a permanent style for Catastrophe Casey, I say keep going with the usual style since I find it compliments the cartoony look a lot more. :)

Well, it looks less like Dirk's artwork up close. He puts far more detail into his line art.

This is a fine example of subconscious artistic influence, it kinda does look like what Dirk would make but I am also sure it was pure coincidence. :P anyway, the line work and colour experimenting looks fantastic. I'm starting to feel unqualified to make a proper critique of your work dude.

I think what makes this look a lot like Dirk's work is the texture effect I used and the desaturated colors. I gotta look for a different coloring style or just use the one I have now for future experimentations with this style.
