    Morbid Trophies (red-lines and paintovers welcome)

    Okay so I have this piece that I finished for now, but I would like any ounce of crits/comments/suggestions that you guys have to dish out.

    The things I've noticed in my own piece is that his head is too big, his legs look a little stalky and the perspective is way off.

    Without further ado, please help me out on this piece of crap drawing! It needs help badly.

    red-lines and paintovers welcome.

    head is to big and i think the over all pic is to dark, there is no difference in values or hues, hes skin is just as dark as the wood and so is everything else.

    Here are a few quick adjustments. Made his head smaller and messed with the lighting on him a little. Also bumped up the brightness/contrast on everything.

    I think your big problem is what you just mentioned. Your perspective is way off.

    Sketch the *whole* scene first, *then* crop in to your desired composition. That way you can get the anatomy and position of his legs before you even do a tight drawing. Saves you from wasting time fixing the painting at this advanced stage.

    Here's a quick redline. Its not exactly right, but you get the idea. Put his left leg on the ground and figure out what his right leg is doing.

    Also figure out your light source. Not just vaguely. I'm talking about position, direction and colour. Draw it in if you have to. Seriously. That way you get your shadows proper.

    Good luck.

    Oh, you are exactly right~!


    When I sketched this out I ran out of room on the paper which in turn gave me no leeway to crop anything extra. Also entailing that I had no room to create the full figure and get the positioning correct~

    Thank you~
