    Is the lower figure looking at the viewer for a reason?

    I'm a bit tired, but I can't tell if the lower figure is coming out of the ground (like from a foxhole) or being stood on my the upper figure.

    I'm assuming the latter.

    You foreshortening is fine, but the placement of the shoulders is way off. A guy lying prone on the ground, facing us, will not have his shoulders in the same position as if he is standing.

    I hope this demonstrates what I mean

    wasn't too happy with the previous version and so i came up with a new sketch. Similar concept but different pose. Which one is working better? the first drawing or this one?

    Drawing #2 works a lot better in my opinion. The lower figure still needs work though. Are you using a reference?

    Well there's your problem.

    If you've never seen a person from that angle before (and how often you you get a worm's eye view of something like that?) then you can't be expected to recreate it in your mind unless you have a really REALLY firm grasp of anatomy and perspective.

    Hey night,

    I really like the idea for this pic. but i think your creating a world of pain for yourself by extending the picture below the horizon line. unless you want to add a 4th disappearing point and go for a bubble effect, i would keep the horozon line out of the picture.

    To make the viewer beleive a picture i think you have to choose a point for the 'camera' and stick to, and a natural field of vision. unless your trying to create the feeling of massive size or something more abstract.

    You asked on mirc how i would do it, sry didnt mean to change it this much but got carried away.

    i didnt bother to fit the buildings into the perspective, but its not always necessary in high action scenes.

    good luck with it!

    haha that's awesome! thanks! But what i wanted to capture was the moment before anything happened-like the calm before the storm. Your paintover's great, lots of action and adrenaline. I'll use it as a reference though
