Hey, I've figured out how to post older attachments! Yay!
CHOW 125 (I think):
Self-portrait for Self-Portrait Day (photoref):
Started working on the mummy for Hallowe'en CHOW:
But decided to go with more stylized movie monsters instead. Here's a stab at Dracula:
I'll be working on some more movie monsters next, then maybe a few old CHOW designs, and then I should probably get back to environments, since I need the practice and people seem to like them. Thanks for the comments, everyone!
I really like your fun style, your caricatures are so awesome! I feel though that they could be stronger if you put more gesture in them. Even your last female figure doesn't seem to really be standing and seems off-balance, but in your characters it seems all a little too stiff. Create more movement in the pose and there will be more interest, but also to really get into that feeling of movement. Keep at it, your style is pretty unique!
@hopebay - Thanks! I should get back to doing the environment studies. I need the practice! @majortom - The ref for that figure was definitely odd. I think I didn't throw her hip out to the side enough. I'll have to correct it when and if I do a cleanup. Thanks for the suggestions for things to work on!
Did a lot of sketching this week but I'm really behind on scanning and I can't find half the stuff I want to scan in the great pile of paper.
