Thanks a ton for the detailed input Andrew.
I'm glad that you're confirming the things I'm feeling/seeing for myself right now, especially composition and that lack of control in my values. I...

Hey guys, yet another long time without an update. lots of things I can show, lots of things I can't and as always give me a boot if anything looks out of place.
Work and studies, dump!
Study armor the same you would any other subject. A poor understanding of armor leads to poor design, the same way a poor understanding of anatomy will lead to wonky figures.

The difference in the position of the butt in your schematic is going to have pretty much 0% influence on your character when seen with clothing on in various positions and perspectives. It...

Thanks, yeah for the colour studies this time around I had very little time. They were actually quick studies done just before jobs that had similar subject matter and as soon as I said to myself "ok...

BUMP - for some reason this didn't show up on the front page? I waited for a while thinking it was just a hiccup in the system but it never showed up for me. Bumping just in case.

Thanks guys :)
So it's been a while, again, and I've come back with some studies that show my continued lack of proficiency with the good ol' pencil. I've been really busy lately and haven't had...
In all honesty, I'd rather just see the photo of the woman.
I'm not very knowedgable about the world of photomanips but;
- Anyone who has called what they do "photomanipulation" usually has...
How many mountain studies have you doe up till now?
Either do what swamp thing did or have her leaning against a fence in front of her or something. No one stands or walks like that.
Just FYI I think dpaint knew that and was just explaining that on top of that there could be a sort of "natural fog" that could increase the effect in the mentioned areas.
To build on Obstfelder's suggestions I did a quick paintover. The more things are turned towards the light, the lighter their shadows will be (I'm talking about the shadows that describe the form of...

First lesson; the squishy internal organs are important for our survival ;)
EDIT: As goog mentioned previously it's a subjective thing. If one of the males from this universe...
You need to constantly ask yourself why why why when actually designing things. Why does she look the way she does? Why is she acting the way she is? Why is she wearing what she's wearing?

it doesn't have to be a whole hell of a lot, but a bit of a lean to a few of the poses and a slightly more intense scowl could give this a bit more impact. Swooshier background optional;
I'll refer you to an old thread that may help http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?p=1009493#post1009493
Whenever you find yourself without an answer, that's the time to study.
Take whatever it is you're having trouble with (human body, faces, lighting) or its closest real-world counterpart (modern...
First off, welcome.
Second, the underlying drawing you have here is really nice. Good figure and face.
Third, values values values values values. Most if not all of the problems you're having...
the open jacket showing boobies and the nipple tape seems really out of place to me. Not just because normally it seems silly, it's that when things like that do work, it's when the model is oozing...
In response to this
I find that i redraw my own things 2-3 times before I consider the underlying drawing "done," and I don't even preserve my lines for a final painting.
I found that when I...
Yup. It's the type of thing that I don't usually find offensive but it really only feels appropriate if the character is;
- a barbarian
- in a self-aware pinup type image

all I have are questions; why is she floating? is she jumping? is the demon thing crying? is the demon thing evil? Are they fighting? If they are, why isn't the demon looking angry or trying to stop...
I'll get ahead of everyone else and say right off the bat; Anime is great, but its foundations are the same as damn near every other visual style; real life. The only reason we...

Thanks everybody :)
Work and life conspired to prevent me from getting to the amount of studies I wanted to, hopefully next update will be more substantial :)
