@ Munkes: Nice piece, I like it a lot. I also like your pencil skills - if it is pencil. Did you do it analogue or digitally? I think the way the shape dissolves into the white negative space is pretty well done, as is the reflection in the goggles. The only crit I have, is that it could have used some more contrast, in some places.
Regarding the apple study: Yes I know about the contrast thing - and yes its hard to see on the monitor outside. on top of that its one of my main weaknesses. I even adjusted the contrast after I went inside, but decided not to work on it any more.
@ Tabu: Where are you buddy? Please don't tell me that you have been scared away by our new, and talented member =) You gotta draw, and you know it!
Heres for the last two days:
The first is a flurry of 30 second poses from Posemaniacs - that site is fecking awesome! I have to make a visit there part of my daily routine.
The second is the next step in the viking design process. I have selected some of the thumbnails from earlier, and tried to detail them some more. Damn I am not half the artist robogabo is, and all the time I was looking at his stuff, and getting frustrated that I suck in comparison, haha. Again my value problem is evident, and I fiddled around with small details, that you can't even see in the finished drawings.
I wanted to obtain a more painterly look, like the ones he made - but its really hard and took a long time, just getting this result.
Oh well please comment guys, and help me choose which one to take to the next step.
