My name is Carlos, I'm from Spain so first of all sorry if I don't communicate me in english in a good way. Well, I'm new here, and I have a lot of enthusiasm for doing things in digital arts.So, I start uploading an image for one of my favourites TV shows. How I met your mother. I like the series a lot. So a big part of my work is about copying characters in my own style. I think is a good exercise for the very beggining before you start to create your own characters. Well, Here is the picture. I hope you like a little.Thanks.
The first thing I noticed is that all the edges are the same. Try looking at this thread, http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=51913
Secondly, what you said is your style, I see as a lack of of structure. You should work on getting them as close to the real thing as possible... When you can do that well enough, you can exaggerate their faces and have it look purposeful, instead of wonky.
Welcome to CA.
it's of vital importance to study the facial structure, bones and muscles before you try to exaggerate and interpret likenesses. It's hard enough as it is. If you look at caricaturists like http://janopdebeeck.blogspot.com/ they have exact knowledge of their fundamentals.
oh and style can't be forced by the way, its something that comes through lots of drawing and painting
Thanks for the quotes, I have to say that it's true, I need to study the anatomy a lot more to get a better result. And I'm gonna try to study the edges and how to paint them.
