    Well there aren't any hands in the first 50+ pages or so of Bridgman, so it's not like I'm avoiding them. Anyway, you made me realize it would be too long until I get to the part in the book that deals with hands so I decided to do some life studies myself.

    I'd fallen out of the rut of doing daily hand studies, so here's some I did in math class.

    kidult: Let's just say I had trouble understanding my homework that night...

    Iddi: Thanks, I like to make them thorough. I don't want them too grey so I darken the values.

    Some Native American character designs I did after seeing this great picture in the Dances With Wolves script book. I didn't want to lose any of the drama in the original poses, so I exaggerated some of the anatomy and screwed with perspective a bit.



    A bunch of quick head studies.





    And I'm not that good with likenesses, so I decided I'd practice with Lincoln and a young Einstein for starters.

    Bridgman:





    Character designs I started today. I can't find my technical pens, but when I do I'll ink these and color them in Photoshop. Right now they're just rough sketches.



    ^Pirate



    British soldier.



    17th century man.



    A woman with a trenchcoat.

    I finished my pirate design.



    Sketch.



    Ink and colors.



    Here's the silhouette. I think it reads pretty clearly, but the little bandana over his head is a bad tangent. I also thought in abstract shapes when designing, so I showed all the little triangles involved.

    i love how you can switch between realistic drawings and flat graphic cartoony designs as well.

    i love the bright colors on the brit soldier but it doesnt read as well as the pirate ones. watch out for tangents, but i bet you already knew that. it's a good design though. i love his stone-faced expression

    Thanks! I love Genndy Tartakovsky, which is where the graphic flatness comes from. And the soldier could be clearer, but in my defense, the ref I used had some clarity issues too. But no excuses!

    i envy your work ethic- one thing is your studies seem well crafted but something is not carrying over to your original designs- keep it up though- the hard work will pay off no doubt

    I change the title of my thread every now and then. It used to be BubbaGump Begins. I'm still beginning, but I really like Christopher Nolan!

    Studies and a finished character. The architectural mouldings chapter in Bridgman helped me to really understand masses.









    Please comment and critique. I've been updating like a fool, but no one seems to be stopping by.

    Thanks. I don't really aim for realism or classical stuff in my original designs which is why they don't seem to carry over. They're mostly to learn anatomy so I can make my life studies more accurate. My designs are more cartoony rather than video game concepty.

    I gotta agree with Fraz, and that drawing is great too!

    Hi bubba, dude you've made a lot of improvement since last time i was here,
    Great studies and you dont seem to slow down with them either which is great.

    Cool stuff mate, just keep on posting!

    A decent amount of drawings today.





    Pretty standard and boring angle.



    ^I think this one is more dynamic. I tried to capture depth without rendering.

    I think it would be better to go the source (characterdesign.com, Loomis, and Bridgman) but sure, go ahead.
