    Now and yonder

    Nerding it up, as much as I can.
    Sketches and sillies, mostly. Mostly sillies.

    Cool stuff so far, you should do a lot of studies and learn anatomy, tis a good place to start. I like the silhouettes, they have a cool atmosphere and mood about them. Just gotta define them and make them into cool characters and whatnot. As for making your figures pop, usually its all about the contrast, if your figures are grey and your background is grey theyre going to blend together, if you have light against dark it will generally make things pop more.

    Thanks Wolfentir (I love the A.Rackham studies, the colours are definitely the same feel) I'll keep that contrast tip in mind. I just can't seem to get it right,
    on nearly all of my pieces. Those quick animations are nice also.

    I'm going through Hogarth's Dynamic Anatomy atm, a bit donut/I mean daunting, but
    I'm just going to copy this whole book and see if anything sticks.
    Else, I may just have to read it also.

    Overlay, say what what, that may just be one of the possible answers to
    that piece. Woohoooo!
    Thank you Massa, there could just be hope for 'Apocrysis' after all.

    Mach girl and cool guy.

    Long time no post. But this is one of my latest roughs.
    I think the gesture and renderings I'm starting to pick up on.
    It took a quite a bit of time to get to this stage. 3hrs?
    But I'll get there.

    [Take note, the image was web optimized so it's ONLY 224KB ... You're welcome 56K'ers )
    A bit of a shitty quality, but ey, I'm thinking of you fellow 56K'er)

    I'm still trying to get some contrast or some sort of elements
    to add interest to the piece. On all my pieces actually.
    Thank you for the tip Grand Masta.

    cool stuff you have here!
    maybe do some anatomy studies to make your characters even more convincing!
    Keep drawing mate! good luck!

    Cheers rogerb,
    I'm trying to get a sketchbook full of anatomy studies. Slowly getting there.
    I feel like I can do silhouettes ok, but not the actual rendering of anatomy.
    No other way though.
