Here's a pose from my imagination, no reference, in order to see how far i've come with my anatomy studies and what has actually stuck and what i need to repeat. So far i'm very pleased with the overall look, i still need more arm / hand / head & face studies though.
Somethings bugging me about those legs, they look kinda big... hmm
Hmm seem be uploading smaller pieces at the moment, i'm having to book lots of train tickets and university accomodation related things for this friday which is taking up a lot of my time ... however the 5 hours on the train should hopefully prove to be a solid ammount of time to produce a lot studies.
The legs at the top of the page were un-referenced i think they are mostly alright apart from i'm unsure if the top of the legs (thighs?) are too chunky, as i thought they would be slighly enlarged due to the pose. The rest of the drawings are referenced from sport photos such as football, boxing and dancing and i wanted to achieve a good flow of movement in the poses, which wasn't entirely successful.
Going to go watch Avatar for some inspiration and do some more studies also, cya later!
Hey man good for you starting a sketchbook for Uni, I wish i did that 2 years ago haha, I think your really excelling at the quick thumbnails on photoshop very good use of negative space etc very inspiring I hope you get round to developing some of those ideas. Your anatomy studies are also improving and much like Sulphur i'd like to see you do some faces too .
Fudgeloaf: Thanks! i'm hopeing to start some face / expression studies soon and really looking forward in that area as i think that its letting me down a lot at the moment.
Andres333: Thank you, i've been trying to add movement to my figures however i'm completely lost as to how to achieve that.. any ideas? would be great
If anyone has any help on how to create movmenet in my figures i'd be very happy
Here's some mor leg / feet studies and some unreferenced poses and character attempts - just noticed the left leg of the male warrior sketch is too short for the perspective of the pose =/ . I'm becomming much more confident with my unreferenced pieces however i still need to get better and will keep moving onto more studies, i think i'll work the back and arm muscles next and then finnaly onto the head/face after
[P.S. That last one is my 51st page of anatomy studies since i started, damn i must do more!]
Spent the day at Plymouth today and maanged to put a diposite down on some student accomodation for september (woop), i had 5 hours worth of train journey to draw but havn't got anything special to post, but heres some more anatomy, some more gesture practice and unreferenced sketches.
Gonna tkae a break from anatomy this weekend and create another full digital piece so that i can see how much i've learnt so far, and also to stop my head exploding from all of the muscle structure information D:
andres333: Thank you for the information, i'll give it a shot tommorow
I have around 4 pages of poses n sketches that i need to scan but am too tired to at the moment, so here isa quick digital piece - my friend Jim always asks me to draw fanarts for him so i thought i would do a quick one for him today during my break from anatomy - he is Wakka from Final Fantasy 10.
P.S. does it look too contrasted to you? my Cintiq screen is more contrasted than my monitor so i upped it some more though i'm really unsure which one is correct..
Some more work onto the thumbnails for this weeks CHOW + some more anatomy studies / gesture practice, starting to get the hang of gestures a bit more now (doesnt realy show in these but i';ll post better ones soon)
