Spaghetti Warehouse (spring cleaning. Moving away to a new thread)
Hi, Name's Mera/Christine, and I draw too much fantasy bullcrockery. Skip to my last post to see better items, because Older work is OLD.
Since I need to desperately improve, I figure I'll post here and see what's said by others. Thoughts, Critique, and anything loved! I need to be reminded how much work I need to do, hahaa!
I'll probably update this bi-weekly or more frequent.

Some assorted older items, with newer things below.
I merged the two posts and cleaned it up a little.

Some process of a coloring assignment.
Designing a character, and I'm trying to see what color style/design I like the best.
Figure his name is "Oliver" sadly, named after my laptop, which, also, sadly, I DID name.

I removed a few of the older sketches as I didn't feel they particularly showcased what I would like advice on.
Would prefer to keep this more recent, and I contemplated cutting it down more, but I figure I'd like any critique you can throw at me based on what I've been doing... obviously, there's a lot more work needed on human anatomy, so any tips/suggestions are still welcome.

hey meralynn, i really like all the fantasy creatures, and i really like your use of imagination on some of the paintings and or drawings. i give you two thumbs up on that, but on some of them some of the proportions of a bit off, i mean, the angle of the object you are drawing doesnt seem to stand out, but im sure you want to show the whole thing. i would like to se some work that you emphasize on pointing out, like making the head bigger and closer to the viewer. i look forward to the new updates and imagination youve got coming, and best of luck

I think one of my lackings in art is highly unique perspective and posture work. I'll try and get some perspective pieces in.
Do you have any suggestions for interesting cropping, because the entire creature surely doesn't NEED to be in every image?
thanks for the input!

hmm... not that i no of, im sorry i cant help you there, but you could try cropping some of the background out and putting the object your trying to show right in the middle, thats all i can say on that. sorry i couldnt be more of help on cropping.

Two more pieces. One is a character reference done for Digital illustration, and then a villain idea sketch. want to do a few more before tomorrow, but time is pressing :/

nice off to a good start. you've got some really good fantasy concepts here. i'd say do a bit more anatomy work, and try to nail all the proportions on both the creatures and the figures. i'd also suggest in your paintings to push your values a little more to help bring out more contrast. other than that keep it up.
To live is to create, to create is to live. Without art and music, I do not know how I would get by in my day to day life.

A sketch tinted in photoshop of a friend's old character (ah, nostalgia), a couple oil paintings, and a work in process sketch. I probably won't finish that last one of Oliver, simply because it was originally intended to just depict the character's design, (and go on the design sheet as well), but needed more time than I had available, and is therefore rather stagnant. Want to work on dynamics.
Threw in a couple of figure drawings.
I'm trying to move away from line drawings.
In order: 5 minute gestures, 20 min, then a pair of 20 min, 20, and then... long pose. I estimated 50, but I wasn't really on the task. This last one I tested out mixing colors, but lost the anatomy, and therefore, the point. Putting it up as a mental reminder to pay attention to the form more than the technique, aye.
and adding one more 20 min pose. Figure I should get some school stuff up here, too.
