    Moving on... BTH critique please

    OK, decided to move on from my Thor design for now.

    Here is the BTH (Back to HULK) piece I did. I took it slow and concentrated on the anatomy. The scale turned out just like I wanted it yet I think I kept the proper anatomical correctness. I used another pose from posemaniacs.com and one that I thought looked like a HULK pose or at least a quick shot from an action sequence. I think HULK is a good subject too in that you don't really have to worry about cloths too much, just the anatomy.

    well...got a good start

    - Feet, his right foot (our left) looks very odd, and nothing like its counterpart

    - His head is very tiny and looks like his face it's wrapped in bandages or something with crisscrossing line work ya got going there.

    thanks... His feet I can see what you're saying although I don't think they are so much different.

    His head is supposed to be that size. HULK isn't proportioned like a human; wider frame, smaller head, big hands and feet and of course ALL muscle.

    You are seeing the musculatur of the face, not bandages. Here's the reference.

    His head looks too tiny...that's all there is to it. I know he doesn't have regular "human anatomy" but his head is a little better proportioned then that.

    Also, just b/c you're looking at a muscled hulk, doesn't mean you can see the muscles bare like in your reference, he still has skin! You should be showing the bone structure, not the sinews of the muscles underneath in his face.

    I know what the hulk looks like and if you don't want to take crits into consideration or at least acknowledge anything that might be off, then don't put them in the critique section.

    This pretty good. If you really want to push why not look up images of body builders? Those would be great references for the hulk here. =)

    head too small, muscles too delineated, his right foot looks off. Same thing PiercedLogic said. Oh, and you need more story. He's just standing there.
    However, I do see some great deal of progress since your other pieces.

    I'm gonna go ahead and quote zypher on that. His lower arm muscles are what strikes me as odd in that regard.
    Also, his triceps looks like a single muscle. I suggest you find another picture for reference in addition to the one you're using, so you get to see what it's like from other angles as well. :]

    PL - I wasn't trying to offend you... Those aren't my perfect incarnations of the HULK though. The size of the head I made was intentional, though I see your point.

    Ebony-Chan - Always... I use Jay Cutler the most.

    zypher18 - thanks, I'm trying... Rhineville's words of wisdom to ALWAYS use references is making sense. I tried to account for the skin and tone it down a little but IMO HULK should be more ripped then even a bodybuilder.

    These are my types of HULK's...

    You know what I think would be cool? Have the hulk doing something. I mean if he's just standing there it's just plain boring. Have him do what he does best. Hulk out! =)

    No offense here. Just that sometimes we get ppl in here that have issues with things but right them off as "their style" or they have no intention of taking into account what others critique on.

    That's not what I'm about... I haven't even narrowed down my style yet. I love the more realistic comic work but then I love the old early 90's style comics too!

    (Of course those 2 HULK pics I posted were Keown's.)

    one thing I find awkward about the arms is that if they're gonna be that large, the deltoid muscles should be even bigger. Those muscles have to lift up the whole arm.

    zypher18 - yeah, but you can't really take that into account... The HULK can lift a friggin' building, lol!! Just like Superman, the strength isn't just in the body, it can't account for that type of strength. HULK gets stronger as he gets more angry too... If he can jump a mile how big should his legs be?

    While both sides of the anatomy argument are valid, it seems wise to go with zypher and piercedlogic. While it may be CANON to have a small head, if it looks weird, it looks weird.
    Canon's changing all the time anyway.

    The pen is mightier than the sword, but the minigun does more damage.
