Still WIP, but here's an update:
far out bro its getting pretty gruesome! is there any chance of seeing it a bit bigger? might make it easier to crit. i think the pose is looking stronger with the changes you made though. im not sure about his right hand? its a closed fist which is aggressive but the pose doesnt reflect that...maybe..i dunno.
keep at it man, wanna see more enviros too!!
Feels like his forearm [his right our left] is a bit long. Mostly it seems like the negative space between his arm and torso is too big. Otherwise, nice works!
Been slack recently. what we Kiwis loosely define as 'spring' has just just kicked in and I've been going home at reasonable times instead of working on personal paintings.
But I managed to bang out a few sketches this last weekend. Pretty simple, just going for likeness. I took some photos, so I might have a crack at a painting down the track.
Been cranking some more bust studies. Starting to feel like I'm coming to grips with shading, was looking at some of Freaky Naughty's work here on CA and it reminded me to shade on/with the planes of the face more. It's a two for the price of one deal!
I think you can see a progression with that strategy in mind if you read the images western style - they are laid out in order of creation, so that's a good sign. Any more ideas on things I could try on my next run would -as always - be appreciated
