    We're men.. We're men in tights....*whistle*

    Don't know if I'll chip in this round, but then again a classic Robin Hood is always a nice exercise

    Novbert: I didn't intend for this topic to be too constraint, and as you can read in the wiki article the actual tale of Robin has changed many times in the past. Somewhere earlier in the thread I saw someone going for a female version of the Robin Hood character, which is fine by me as long as it still reads as the character of the tales. Setting Robin Hood in another age is totally fine too.

    You can also interpret 'woods' any way you want I guess, but just be aware that the character you are designing still reads as the Robin Hood character from the tales, and not just be a random dude with a bow or a common thief.

    Post Apoc Robin Hood WIP

    Hey

    The concept is a merge between Mad Max and Robin Hood. Immediately after I read the topic my minds eye focused on this character. Mad Max was kinda "Robinhood-esque" he fought for the justice, and stole gas and water from the bad guys.
    Also, I just wanted to draw a badass girl on a car.
    I think the X bow will be a shotgun combo deal.

    Pls crit.. I tend to loose my image after this stage.
    THX

    Wooo... Alright, a little nervous here. I lurk a lot, but don't usually work up the nerve to post, let alone participate in a weekly, but I've got some free time and figured I'd try my hand

    Basically, instead of being a regular ol' thief who's just uncommonly good with mundane weapons, this guy is an arcane archer who uses implements to focus energy into arrows and a sword. Hence the glowy.
    He's also supposed to be more... mysterious, and a little darker, I suppose. Less about the showmanship, more about the stealing.
    I'm toying around with the idea of giving him a quiver from which he draws arcane energy for the arrows, but I think it might just make more sense for the bow to focus both a "string" and arrows, like the sword hilt would focus an arcane blade.

    Liffey:Thanks! That's a very good question.My first idea was that he is holding the bow and have the sword out because just hear somenthing in the direction he is looking.But i guess it really doesn't show on the sketch.Probably i will erase the sword so he is just standing on the camping.Good observation!

    Danbot386:Thanks!, i will look that arm.I know what you mean about the look of the character.Generally speaking i like to retain an "historical" feel when doing characters that are set in a specified time period and changed mainly the charcter feel(no hat, not polished beard, etc), but yeah is not too original

    darklogik:I really like your idea for the character and pose.Quite narrative.im not really fluent with english so i made a couple of sketches to show you a bit of ideas for your character's pose.I tryied to mantein your idea and drawing as much as posible and just add more movement in certain parts.
    Generally speaking i worked the sketches as an action pose,so doesn't look too stealth as perhaps you originally planned.I also made a quick "sketchover" (sorry about that, i don't like to draw onto another persons drawing but it was more easy to show).I basicly make changes as i practiced before in the sketches.
    In any case i hope you don't take this in a bad way.These are just suggestions.
    Looking forward for your finished piece.

    First of all, This round is already producing some great work, good job!


    DIMAGYAN: THANK YOU!!!!, I am an art director at an ad agency, so I know how to take critique for what it is . I have absolutely NO issues with people drawing on top of my sketches for the sake of betterment since I do hope to do this professionally soon.

    I was considering all day changing my POV and angle to show her up against a tree, over looking a road with travelers on it, but know I think I may feel bad after all the time you took with your visual help.

    Posted is the main reference I was working off of so show some reasons for the odd positions, and I do see the flaws I have. Keep em coming for this is currently my art school.

    Thanks again!

    Here is an update with a bit of colour and texture. Just like to say aswell that when I saw the topic I thought it sounded pretty boring tbh. But Im loving this chow and seeing what everyone else is doing this week.

    And would also like to say thanks to all the helpfull people on here. I reckon I have learnt more about drawing/painting from a few weeks on these forums than I have out of 6 months of college!

    And on that note, any feedback and/or thoughts on my WIP would be very welcomed.

    I feel this one tells more of the story and is more dynamic in a few ways, but it may not so I will look to you for input..

    Thanks

    darklogik:Glad you find the sketches useful.Please don't feel bad if you do another composition or idea.Is normal to try different aproaches, besides i have fun thinking differents aproaches for those scketches(probably part of the action feeling carry to my own second version of RH now i think about it, if you think is too similar to your sketch please let me know and i will remove it).

    I like your second version, it really show the story and plus you have the oportunity to show her design.There is some problems with the horse, specially the legs(too thick and the articulations are not quite right) also you could put her(R.Hood) feets on different levels of the terrain(perhaps a tree root for instance).Good work.

    JessiBean:great work on the clothes, i really like your design.He is going for an ambush? great linework.

    Jager: Very nice sketch.You go for a young Robin?Nice style.

    6 Sided:You need to work on the proportions of the figure aswell on the placement of the different parts of the body.The head is too small and the hands are too big, for instance.Keep it up.

    More comments later

    DIMAGYAN: First, thanks again! I do also like your number 2 with the more action. No worries about poses, inspiration inspires inspiration, thats why a group of artists is always stronger than the solo artist!

    As for mine, The horse is a little off, but keep in mind Im going Clydesdale for the area of england that this takes place, so some of it is hair and their muscle structure, if that help the view point. If not than Im just off . Love to see where your is going, it has good movement and flow.

    Lots of other good stuff and unique styles. I'll crit more when Im not supposed to be asleep for work the next day. And Jess, yours is kicking ass so far, really want to see your color pallet for this one.

    Jessi: Nice work as always but I somehow get the feeling you used a fashion model or similar for the pose. The way he sits looks almost like an ad. Just put 'suit 39,99', bow 15,49' on top of it and an H&M logo in the corner and it pretty much seals the deal
