There is really a lot of great advise here, but after visiting your website I can see why they all have similar styles...they are in the same army. I like the way you handled the comics and I wish...
Grondhammar, Man its great to hear the viewers eye keeps moving.
The actual photo had some chunky ice in the water that I thought to remove because it made it look too busy. There are a few more...
Grondhammar, thanks for the critique. I have never heard of the rule of thirds, though, I have heard of leading the eye of the viewer which I thought I accomplished here. The actual thing that...
This is one of many landscapes that I have been working on in Photoshop. This is from a photograph my brother took in Antarctica.
Let me know what you think.
I finally found some time to pull this view together.
Next up, some dynamic views.
You might want to try using line weight to show dimensionality, some deeper shadows would help too.
Did you use a photo reference?
Keep at it.
One suggestion is to put a line of men charging that leads to the distance through the middle ground, maybe have one of these robots there defending or attacking.
Keep at it.
I like what you have started here.
Kev Ferrara has a point, I think the Dinos also need some dirt splashed on them from the landscape as well. The top Dinos look too clean. Also remember that there...
One other thing you might want to try on top of learning anatomy is line weight, thicker and thinner lines.
Another great resource is a mirror, if you have a large one you could get into the pose...
Thanks Blue Severin, I do realise the back is not exactly like the front, I drew these each separately in a small sketchbook during breaks at work and didn't pay attention to that detail as much as I...
"...Even if I get them the right size"
Well, hmm. You should use guidelines and measurements.
I haven't done speed-painting myself, but aren't they just meant as sketches? If they come out cool...
Some adjustments on the images.
Looks a little better. Well, taller anyway.
OK, I thought I remember seeing a plant similar to how the prickly tentacles are now, but couldn't find an image online. I did however find different cactus types, there is a definite pattern to each...
I see, by disease ridden do you mean like flesh falling off or bumpy? Do you have references for it?
Cactus texture, should be interesting when your done. I'm thinking, as mentioned by whyatt, if...
This has potential.
I am not sure about giving her hands like that guys, if you want to make her more monstrous give her claws. I think the tentacle on the top should have a visible twist because...
I little touch up for the back. Playing with the chain to get a slightly better effect.
Venger, thanks for helping me see both the 7 1/2 issue and (of course) the chain-mail. When I saw your sketch it hit me like a ton of bricks.
zypher18, thanks for pointing these things out. The...
I think that is a better side view.
Venger , thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I actually did intend on this guy being shorter, but it looked real weird at 5 heads so I made him about 6 heads high. The arms may seem a bit...
Here is the color version of the drawings, action poses are in the works,
let me know what you...
This is my latest attempt at working in Photoshop. The characters face is from my imagination, the...
You do seem to be drawn more to the manga style, is that what you intend on? You may want to consider doing cell shading.
One thing I see that could use improvement in update #275, the light-source...
"Well most importantly I'd recognise that its different strokes for different folks. That said I think when starting out a sketch, staying loose has it in spades all over tight. Clean contoured lines...
I have been looking at your stuff and am wondering if you use guidelines?
REALLY take a good look at the link from N1ck, maybe even try your hand at those drawings.
With regard to the self...
Here is my latest work in progress. Currently I am drawing up 3 dynamic poses for this guy. After I am done with the drawings I will paint them in photoshop. Once all poses have been complete I will...
