Good attention to detail! A minor note~
Your character illustrations are represented in very stiff manner, and appear life-less due to dwelling within your "comfortable perimeter". What I meant by that is creating art in a fashion that is only limited to what feels right to you. Judging from your previous posts in this thread, I've noticed the Pattern. Your excluding anything other than a true visual representation of what I like to call the "action-figure" stance. A lot of artists are subject to this, and only recently started exploring outside of this area myself. The "action-figure" stance is referred to character illustrations in which have very limited fluency in movement and posture (aka stiffness). I'd recommend getting creative with ways of spicing up your character movement starting with posture and gesture. A Good exercise for this is 30-60 second gesture drawings. You mentioned school, I'm assuming you have access to figure drawing seminars? If not, I'd recommend books "Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators" by Mike Mattesi and "Dynamic Figure Drawing" by Burne Hogarth. Any book by Bridgeman can only help the effort. You can also check out www.posemaniacs.com. Theres a setup on that site that allows for timed sketches, it really does help.
I gotta say that seeing a soft spot for culture in your artwork has made me that much interested in your next post. The more you understand about human culture and life-styles, the more the thought process of character development comes second nature to you. Keep going!

been real busy lately working on stuff for idiot as well as more for Mr. warren fitzpatrick. so....
Rumple- I agree with most everything you said! and im trying to work on those. ive got three more concepts to do in pencil that will resemble that stiff style, but then i wanna blow the doors open on some posework!
2 more for warren, a cloaked judge costume concept, followed by a dragon (that isnt quite done yet)
more soon, i hope.

been very busy working on concepts for mr. fitzpatrickkkkk,
but anyhow, im not going to lie-- been slacking a bit as well.
anyhow, back on the ball this week, heres a new concept commision for a man covered in a swarm of insects from 'the message'. this piece IS NOT finished yet, and needs some work, especially in the feet and muscle definition. second is a close up of the characters face with a little bit of grayscale definition to clean up the clutter. third is another study for Idiotapathy, a lip study i banged out in a couple hours. im ok with it. more soon!

It could just be me, but on that last picture, it seems as if the axe is mounted on the back side of that guys closed fist, rather then in it. Is that how it is supposed to be?Warning! Drinking lots of beer can impair your senses. Please do so before you view my sketchbook!
