    Tits and Dinos

    Hey folks. CA has always seemed overwhelming to me put I'm going to take the plunge. Almost a new year and I need to go at a new angle.
    I have a background in classical animation and have spent the last year working in a bookshop and studying hard in the evenings at life drawing and just recently oil painting. I have plans to acquire a tablet for myself sometime soon.

    There's something in the lineowrk and looseness of your anatomy studies that made me think animator before I read it at the top! Lovely stuff, I don't know why you'd be afraid to take the plunge here, it's a great start to a sketchbook.

    I love the fluid but precise lines. It's like you make really solid decisions about where to put your pencil down.

    Niiice. I like the oil too. The colours are lovely.

    Here is a few of finished works from a while back. I have always had trouble working people into my beastie pictures and its something I have been working on since. As you can see the guy on its back is just twiddling his fingers.
    Im planning on re doing the dino-guy fight up to a finished version, apart from the face, any idea on other areas I should work on?
    And the expressions on their faces leaves plenty to be imagined. Anything else, I would really appreciate any thoughts.

    Amazing sketchwork here I really love the fluidity and confidence in your line work. Dinosaurs are such fun little things to draw!

    My favorite piece is the rocklizard.jpg, that shading is CRAZY I just love it

    hey corey, those pencils are great, ive always been a fan of finished pencil work, which seems to be neglected by artists alot these days (including myslef!) for the first one, try putting in some footprints. small but it really aids in the idea that this beast is walking.

    hope you dont mind me playing around with ur work, but i find this is the best way i can illustrate my thoughts. my m8s are used to me hacking their working haha.

    i would emphasize the gesture and bring the arm up so theres more body weight down through the knee onto the raptor. I also think that bringing that arm up stretches the leg straight, and that leverage threathens to break the bone (1) (i dont know what its called, the 2nd knee cap,) ive seen a horse break its hind leg that way, not a pretty sight. the feet's talons could also be reaching for the guys face.
    his expression could almost be confrontational with the raptor, up to u. grabbing the throat is great!
    To prevent the raptor from just slashing the guy with his left craw i would be aware of where the knee is (2) if the knee was on the ribcage, the raptors arm is still free to move, but if the knee was on the sternum, it has a strong chance of winding him by pushing into the lungs.
    this may be getting a bit too scientific, but it all depends on how much dominance you want to give the guy. (think im just hopelessly into violence!) having that raptors arm ready to counter attack him might give it some preemtive drama...i hope my thoughts helped. cant wait to see the final drawing.

    I love that finished dragons drawing. The beastie that the guy is riding on is also awesome.

    True progress means matching the world to the vision in our heads.
    But we always change the vision instead.

    Very nice and fluid lines! The dino's are looking great too. You need to put a little more work in your human figures to get them up to the same level as the rest of your drawings. Keep up the great work!
