just see this as practice. don't mind it and do more.
try to draw from life/pictures, in that order.
Friends, yourself in a mirror.
get artbooks and anatomy books. burne hogarth.
keep at it!
watch a movie with a huge explosion at night, pause, and look at the frames.
I'd darken everything outside of the explosion, esp batman, and just let the explosion's rimlight light him.
move the right leg of the big guy so that it isn't behind the guy. It's going into him at a bad spot, you've got tangents on the bottom. Having the leg there stabalizes him, and actually stops the...
try to get more variations in your greens,
also, don't go full white on all highlights, just pick a couple.
So only full white on maybe one piece of the armor on his shoulder.
See how you have...
hands kinda small
maybe a bit more value contrast in the face, it's got less value contrast compared to the clothes.
i like the changes made, but honestly the composition is kind of weak.
I think you can cut off most of the left, as we can all see where the true love of the piece is on the right side, with the...
try sharpen things up with shadows, zoom way out and try to design main shadow shapes.
I think too much of it feels smudge tool'd.
learn about form and cast shadows, how they work, and how they...
try taking the pose, or getting a friend to take the pose. take a picture.
too much black and white contrast, that lessens the glow of others.
study armor, how it works, and the anatomy...
start learning about anatomy, how cloth drapes and works with the body.
also think about line quality.
also look out for tangents, lines that touch each other and get rid of the illusion of 3d.
feels like he has no neck.
hands aren't totally bad, study anatomy to get em right. the hands feel a bit small.
try not fading out at the edges and having a definate edge for your composition....
think of main shadow shapes, learn about cast shadows vs form shadows, and how they work on the face.
yea maybe crop, unless there's supposed to be text down there.
i usually just post in the critique center, but i thought i'd share these.
i'm playing around with a quicker (well quicker for me) style, so i pumped out these fan arts.
i'd tone down the glow of the side vents, and go super nova on the main reactor. have that be your main light source, rather than two of equal strength on either side.
think of good shadows
get rid of sandals, don't hide feet. cuz it looks like ur trying to hide the feet cuz you don't know how to draw em.
feet too small
temperature change in gloves to boost em out of the bed
learn about folds in cloth, how to draw clothes. the folds are too even, and from your work you don't hold a complete understanding of how they should work.
also think about values, and how there...
work on hands, until you bleed. anyone can draw a face!
i suggest getting the barbara bradley book for clothed figure, and also some anatomy books.
read and copy those suckers.
keep up sketching...
things farther back should be hazy/less constrast, things closer have more contrast.
the guy's arm needs fixing.
what's wrong with it is the forearm feels jammed on since...
i'd crop it so that it's less wide. the bottom 2 shapes (rocks?) are jus really similar in shape and size, and unless you put something ontop of the right shape, it's pretty useless.
i think if you...
work it all out in thumbs first!
how dark the fish are don't bother me,
i think you should try thinking in values first.
think of how values work together, then colors.
it's a character, i don't mind the wide hips, with her small breasts it makes her look a bit older.
work on line quality, and try to paint so that in some areas the it's tighter and in other areas...
get it down before you jump into this detail, your problems are all still there.
it's cool that u love these dresses so much, you can really tell you had fun, but you should have fun with...
eyes look a little close together, but yea, i guess we need to see ref.
not much to say, i guess u should jus be careful to have the skin and cloth have different textures so that they feel like...
the perspective lines of the eyes/nose/mouth are off. they aren't all in the same angle.
i think you should crop in from the right so that the arms aren't so equal in size.
and the left side of the word bubble makes a tangent with the left side of the comp.
