    Help Appreciated

    This pic is of the main character from a short graphic novel I'm making for one of my a-levels. I've gone through several poses and settled on this but I think I'm having some anatomy issues. Before I go too far (like I usually do) crit would be appreciated.

    the best tips I could give you is to get a camera and strip down to your undies and take a ref. pic in the pose and then use it to get the basic proportions correct. Then go from there changing to more ideal proportion if that serves the story of the image. (if you have no one to help you take the pic, most cameras at least my cheap digital camera has a delay function, but one has to be quick hehe)


    to do a finished "realistic" painting without any ref. at all is just asking for unnecessary trouble.

    Ps:Hope you understand my English.
    Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.

    Did you intend the figure to hold the sword from the blade itself? (assuming it isn't in a sheath)

    Take a look at some Bridgman books to get that anatomy right. There are many aspects that read as being incorrect, rather than simply stylized.

    Though interesting silhouettes are VERY important, regarding your lineart, I feel that you're focusing too much on the contour alone. Again, Bridgman will help you envision the 3d forms of each body part.

    Hi! Havoc-DM is right. No thing better than Bridgman for this. His books: Constructive Anatomy and The Human Machine are great and very cheap. Hope it helps. Keep it up!
