PRINCE OF SATURN by Wieringo PRINCE OF SATURN by Wieringo
I have many of the broad strokes for my idea of an Earthman transplanted to the distant planet of Saturn and embroiled in a struggle for the throne of the greatest kingdom on that world...(and for those of you who have made the comparison... it is inspired by JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS). I wanted to, though, draw for this sketch a quiet, contemplative moment as the main character reflects on the events that have led him to stand on this golden ringed world so far from his home....

Great drawing, but a little word of warning, Saturn is the second largest Gas Giant in our solar system.
Although it has a small solid core and it's gravity does not differ much from earth, the gasses on the surface are in liquid form due to the pressure which is a 1000 Bar, here on earth it's 1 Bar. Meaning that any object that isn't solid get's crushed untill IT IS a solid Ball. Let's not forget that the surface temperature is 12000 Kelvin (Hot, very Hot) and the gasses like Hydrogen, methane and others are poisonous for our organisms. Your hero might fair better on one of the 62 known satelites that surround Saturn, but don't hold your breath. And for the record in our solar system, most planets are inhospitable for man, the reason people are thinking of going to mars is because because the inhopitality of Mars is reasonably survivable.

So, let me get this straight: you are criticizing the FANTASY, science-FICTION artwork above, totally side-stepping the imagination and creativity involved? -- It's called a "life"; you might want to pick one up, next time you're at the store...

Oooh sour-puss has finally awakened. This message is more than half a year old. Do you spend your socalled 'life' watching every message dating back to the beginning of DA solemly to find a reason to bitch about. Without any art on your own page, or is "bitchin about comments" your art ?
If so i'm not the one expected at the lifestore, While your there pick up some education and learn how to read. I started by saying "great drawing" and I meant it.
Further more I provided him with information which could aid him exploiting his character, make some improvements or keep the title but think of a reason why he's called the prince of Saturn.
And finally I commented his artwork not the response someone else gave to his artwork. You don't comment the artist in person, which is what you should be doing, but sidestep and tell ME what you like about it. You could have said something positive yet you rather like to complain. Complaining is for loosers who don't have any art of their own.

It's easy to point at someone else when YOU are the one making all the mistakes.

Bye now, have a nice day :-)

I shall have to make a study of your art in hopes to at least learn how to draw backgrounds.
