Hmmm.... This was a random and interesting post - pretty unexpected. (more displacement activity before I knuckled down to my work!!!)
Obviously art is a personal journey. You don't HAVE to...
It's back with all your statistics. Wee......
Don't use a game creature as reference - you will end up trying to learn anatomy from somebody else's distortions. You are still not committing - what type of mammal? Human, cat, bear, cow, mouse? ...
Gah, sorry this is posted so late after the original date of the thread...but I made this when you first made the thread, and as I went to post it the forums went down for the two weeks...then when...
Have you tried actually learning to draw real creatures, understand how they work and using photo reference based on them? There's no trick or singular tutorial to follow on making something look...
Well thankfully I just explained why traditional media isn't better just because it's traditional.
I do like my Staedtler Mars 780. More of a lead holder I suppose with a nice sharpener on the end.
In here, it'd get you about 32 graphite sticks! Probably even more graphite or coloured pencils.
Yep, I think you should put in some research for saddle positions and also horse/rider proportions. The man on the left looks all right although he seems to be riding into the frame - but either Dany...
Again, study more anatomy! MOARRR!
The things you seem to understand in the other dragon or were pointed out are completely ignored in these other dragons, as the other dragon has legs that it can't...
...Are those marijuana leaves? Why? Wouldn't those get ripped off very easily?
Honestly I'd think properly what the function of the dragon is supposed to be. The dragon is bulky and pretty much...
I'm rather glad that the large block of thumbnails at the top is gone. It was rather irritating to have to scroll down every time to get to the forum.
"United Kingdom - Justify Your Existence"
heres a few things we invented or discovered you might have heard of
The Jet Engine
Oh, yessss. When I watched J.Manley's Color and Theory of Art the first time, he was talking about that one:
Ok this is bullshit. Crocodiles are way cooler than leopards.
That's all there is to it.
Hey cool guy!
I agree with Vermis, also other animals like horses can also be useful to study in their basic forms when it comes to constructing dragons. Horse heads, for example are a great basis for a dragon...
To me it looks like you're trying super hard to keep that dragon's butt away from the bottom of the image and it makes it look awkward. Maybe see how it looks with letting some of the lower part of...
*Runs out of thread*
But there's suspension of disbelief. Everything fits together to produce an impression and if you mix your messages you get a weak diluted image that does everything half-assed.
You'll never see...
Well, even with fantasy there's the thing called Willing Suspension of Disbelief. "Fantasy" as a setting can mean almost anything, but it doesn't mean that every fantasy setting would go with every...
When you build from the skeleton out you get a much more realistic form and movement.
Here are some of my pieces in progress to show you what I mean:
Sure, Murphy may be, but Hart's books are woefully infested with some crappy art and horrible anatomy so even if there's one or two contributors that are real gems, most of the books are either...
I'm confused and more than a little bit frightened.
Funny init? You have a Manchester United bedsheet, a Manchester United mug, a Manchester United calendar, a Manchester United scarf, UTD in your car number plate and you wear a Manchester United...
My response from a similar conversation on facebook a while back:
"I challenge your contention that fuzzy ≠ badass: what's more badass, an elephant or a WOOLY FUCKING MAMMOTH!!!!!!"
