He meant the brown haze and fog. Smog = smoke + fog. The smoke from the fire is getting into the fog, making smog.

I believe smog is simply a term used to refer to crappy air. Just ask Toxicskylines (hence the name). I'm still trying to wrap my head around the stunning amount if pictures (and scenery).

So, I wonder why did I call it "Hero on the Husdon"? :lol:

Yep...but it isn't exactly manhattan. I thought the skyline was too plain, and so...I added the Burj Dubai, the ICC, a skyscraper from LA, and some random AIA building from hong kong. Also some unidentified buildings there... :)

Sentinel182 wrote:nice ideas, but a bit of constructive critique:

when you colour with pencil, its always best to colour in one direction; it keeps the colouring more clean and graphic, in a way. plus, make sure the pencil is sharp hehe

besides that, pencil is often a bad tool for colouring; i would recommend something like watercolour paint, acrylic paint or since youve scanned it, you could throw it into photoshop or a similar program and add more solidity to the colouring of things.
Thanks for the suggestions, but I'm not that good with photoshop, unfortunately. I only know how to make text and special effects on it. However, I will try coloring in one way and making sure the pencil is sharp, but I was on a tight schedule, as it was due the day after I finished it. But still, thanks, and I will try improve according to that.

I meant the game 'cause he drew a Halo character. And all the rest would make bad ass characters and weapons for any FPS.
