    colour wip, workin on this one slowly in my breaks

    crits:

    brain - slow down on the hatching!! go over this on a new layer, and move slowly with your lines, thinking 'smooth' 'smooth' 'smooth' the whole time
    As for proportion, there is not much point giving you proportion advice at this stage - start to do studies of proportion from loomis and other references, and you will slowly start to fix your mistake. Work on deliberate lines, so what you are communicating is clear

    Dave: hehe sure, from hell, why not. Make sure 'overprepared' not 'well prepared' comes across in the concept!

    Fuuryoku: Your figure seems to be in a different perspective as the backpack. If the backpack is supposed to be leaning forward that much, you will need to change his pose because if he were standing straight like that he would fall over!! Maybe have him kneeling or leaning on something for support...

    Chiko: looking good, i like his characterisation


    Interesting how similar all the entries are!

    From: He will carry allot of different guns, swords, knifes, and other weapons and armour. I think that is "paranoid backpacker"

    Grenogs: will see, i think it's big enough

    Graphuji: I didn't watch that manga, but it's good though. My concept is, i know it supposed to be funny, that "everybody carries his own cross". That is reason why form of backpack is like that.

    Talk about ruffing it, I almost included the kitchen sink, but it would've been alittle too much. Anyways, I dig the topic, a nice change of pace. Form- I like the idea you've got going, you can never have enough eyes behind your back when travelling afar. Acro- where's the grill?

    I like the subject.
    I backpacked in Aussie for 7 months with just a surf bakpack and a school bag. I had one weeks worth of clothes and some sketchpads. but I did see some people similar to the drawings in this thread. even funier when the person is a 4 foot chick with 3rd degree sun burn.

    i backpacked in Tanzania, but only for 3 weeks, but in that time, i had to carry the usual everyday clothing for a very hot country, also mountain hiking clothing, which included winter clothes suitable for a minimum of -10' C. So i too defenetly know what its like to carry a rediculas amount of equipment. So some of these images are quite realistic, lol

    OH by the way llothcat your image reminds me of the porters carrying (almost running)all the luggage up Killi, hehehehe.
