K, first pic i plan to do on more than one day
Decided to post several WIP steps if someone is interested - any tips, crits and comments are apreciated!
Step 1 rough sketch
Step 2 darkening colours and defining helmet shape
Step 3 finishing the helmet (hopefully )
Step 4 getting a first face shape
Step 5 getting face finished (4 now)
That's it so far - more steps tomorrow

Just a quick couple of comments.
Don't begin working on details before you've laid in the rough tones, colours etc. The image is very messy, and its hard to make out the basic anatomy and lighting.
Plus the anatomy looks off, he appears to have a rather large head (even without the helmet). This makes him look almost like a young 'boy' soldier.

www.sevans.co.nz , visit them or a puppy dies!
thx 4 the tips first, sevans!!
I know that normally i should work from basic forms and colours to the details - but as far as i am using a ref 4 that one i thought it will be alright when i just lay down the very basic shape, as i got the source 4 lightning n stuff - plus i am still on my way finding the best working draw method 4 me, so this is a kinda experimental. (but i have to committ that im very into details and cant wait to start with em )
The big head u mentioned i'm aware of - i will overdraw the body shape again so it ll fit to the head - the only thing i m a kind of worried about is the helmet to head proportion; u think it fits or is the helmet 2 big??
By the way: This is supposed to be a young soldier - but not that young i guess
thx again 4 ur comment! :chug:
kk next step - smallered the helmet and started with the shoulders
next one - finished the backpack
upper body quiet finished
added some more detail - and stronger shadows
hopefully the rest will be done tomorrow - any more crits=?
kk, finished the soldier 4 now can be viewed there:
might use this one in a bigger scene, but need to work on sth different first
