    surfaces

    I posted some similar work earlier; looking at armour...

    These three sketches are in chronological order, and I feel I am definitely making improvements, but figured I'd post them together to see if anyone can spot any recurring problems, or bad habits I am succumbing to?

    thanks a lot...

    some more work in a similar vein, inspired hugely by Hurricane's fantastic Viking Battle for Asgard post, as well as watching Conan last week...

    any crits please guys...

    I like what you have so far. But here is something that is perhaps more of my own personal opinion: give your characters more gesture. IMO, unless you're doing a bind pose or turnarounds, you should start your character with a gesture. It creates more interest and reveals more personality. For example your barbarian could be either good or evil. Playing with the gesture could help you figure that out.

    Also I would make the barbarian's hips narrower. To me, he's starting to look a touch too feminine.

    Great costume design, BTW.

    Good call on the hips! I think that could have something to do with the low slung fur loin-cloth. I'll try bulk up his torso a little more! As for pose - I'm not too concerned with that at the moment, though I will have to make it a more dramatic wider stance pose for the 'bigger' armour I want to go on to design...

    Many thanks.

    in the first few, you're avoiding the feet... don't! and make sure they are big enough for your character to be able to move/fight/function on them. Otherwise, kickass designs, and awesome work with shape language and variation... maybe try some non-fantasy pieces/other genres? And how about some color?

    Awesome stuff
