    Red face First post - SF.Blanka Fan art.

    Hi everyone,

    This will be my first post, never really gotten critiques for my illustration or made effort to look for it; so guess this is also a first.

    I know its still in its early stages, but I wouldn't mind some outside insight on it all. Arms are a bit dodgy looking but think I'll have to render it more to get it the way I want... only real concern is the proportion.. anyway here it is;


    -----------
    V2,
    Removed that grey bg and attempted to define the muscular structure. added a dark shadow to suggest the character is grounded and tweaked the hair.

    you added the tags wrong,

    anyway i dont know what to say cause it looks pretty good to me, i think the arms are symetrical and so the knees should be but i cant see the left knee so good, i might be wrong,

    His left foot looks like it only has two toes, and his right is virtually non exsistant. Ill leave the hands alone because..well there are none. Character wise Blankas hair doesn't stand up like that when he uses his electricity.

    I'm not getting a good feel for exactly what Blanka's action is in the middle of doing. Jumping up, or down, or is he on the ground? You can show his action better through proper posing, muscular action (tensed/relaxed) and direction of clothes and hair.
    One other thing, his jaw looks too thin. I would add in some extra jaw structuring on the sides.

    It looks much better, but then again, after three years I should hope so!
    You may find it easier and more productive to start over completely, as you have with the face, than to be bound by what's already there after all this time. You'll probaly end up changing everything anyway, why not give yourself a clean slate?
