Neuromancer - Accidental Disconnection by Lehanan Neuromancer - Accidental Disconnection by Lehanan
Not the first time I draw something related to this story-> [link]

(which makes me remember that I should remake that sketch as well!!)

"Neuromancer", written by Willian Gibson, has been one of my favourite novels since the very first moment I read it forced by my one of my art teachers.

I'll be the rest of my life really greateful to him.

I did this drawing for that teacher during one of his cyber-art classes, in traditional watercolors (I think I posted it on deviantART but nobody realized it). I still loved a lot the concept of this illustration and I decided to do some kind of remake. This took me forever (I've been working on it little by little for months!), and I think I'll still working in it if I get some more free time in the future.

Since I'll still working in this picture forever, I would really appreciate if you could give me some constructive criticism (just don't be too rude, gosh, it's the first time I do this stuff digitally and I'm still learning XD). But some advices so I can have them in mind next time I work in it =D Thanks!

I wish they made a movie of this novel. Gosh, there were a lot of rumours and some possible actors for the cast, but never heard anything new in a long time =_=

excuse for my poor english (I'm from quebec) at first point, i would tell you that this draw is realy stuning. and the technologics bords add a great effect about the subject, but i think than the line art should be a little bit less like a draft, cause the thechnology is a kind of modern, square and clean. ans dose'nt fit at well with the backgroud color (sweet and soft like if he'll reach the surface). for the rest, i realy apreciate your technique and your sens of proportions. the back groud should maybe be a little bit larger and the white part a little bit more flashy (give a important impression of release).
What do you think?

"The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel." Best first line in sci-fi ever.

No critiques, although I do like the sense of being thrown out of something that looks inviting and comfortable into something that is hard and bright and unyielding that the composition and use of color gives it.

Well, I just used Photoshop brushes. You install them and they're pretty easy to do =D I credited the persons that created those bruses in my artist's comment, if you're interested ;)

This is lovely. The only thing is that his thigh seems ever so slightly on the thin side for the rest of his body but it's it's really not very noticeable and if I hadn't been looking I probably wouldn't have noticed.

P.S. Is he supposed to be surprised or in pain? The expression is a little ambiguous.

Both! XD Surprised for the accident, and full of pain because of the wrong disconnection.

Aside from thinking the bone marking the end of his ribs and the point of his clavicle are jutting a tiny bit too sharply, I don't really see any flaws to it. And those two are just my nitpicking. XD The fading effect is really cool. :3

I think it might be better without the far arm composition-wise, but it /does/ help get the sense of tension across better with it.

Thank you! Yes! I drew this three years ago and it's full of anatomy issues (actually, I could fix some XD But I need to work harder!).

Really? I think the far arm gives more dinamism to the pose (if there is any XD I know it's very odd).

:iconcheshire-shadow:
Cheshire-Shadow Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012
lol Well, better to move forward than keep taking random steps backward, I suppose; you must have better things to be doing. XD

Dynamism, yeah, but somehow it also looks a tad odd. Regardless, it isn't too distracting.

Wow, it's been years since I read that book. It had a big impact on me at the time. Maybe I should go back and re-read it. I don't feel at all qualified to give you a critique, but I did want to say I like this. It definitely brought back some memories of the book, and as usual you got so much emotion in it.
