    So this is a study of the skin tones and muscle forms. My primary reference was the front cover of the ImagineFX at my Uni, but to get supplements for muscle reference I took to various other sources. So I believe the original image was a promotional Blizzard for Diablo three, and I particularly wanted to learn about the relationships between different colours. Probably the most striking thing was that if you put a neutral colour into a sea of warm colours then it appears to be a cool colour. Even if it's warm and just less saturated, it will appear as a cool colour, and this was an awesome thing to learn. Anyway, He's got some left on him, but I'm kinda sorta happy with progress thus far. I think the whole thing could use some more cool colours to be honest.

    The muscles are so defined, it looks like there is no skin at all.

    Maybe try multiple light sources of differing color and intensity. That will make it easier to model the forms.

    For learning light and color, you cant beat a few hours in front of a still life.

    So some life drawing sessions that I took too much time to render. I feel like they came out a tad too dark. Not the scanning, mind you, that's fine, but the rendering on my part was messy and hastened. I know what this needs. Moar practice! =D

    So. Hydralisk. Duh. The second is something I doodled on the Train home for Christmas and the third is a Carnifex I drew from a friend's unpainted model. Though I feel as though all the limbs are too tightly woven together and as a result the silhouette isn't as informative as it can be... but whatever.

    Cheers, man. I actually have Bought one of Bridgeman's books and I have some studies already from a book a friend of mine loaned me. Loomis generally does anatomy books as well, or does he write books about other stuff?

    So these are the models I drew tonight. I forget her name but his name is Brett.
    Gorgeous muscle definition on that guy. I'm happy he takes his job seriously.

    So the first image are my source images. I'm not Crahzz, I took those photos when I was in New Zealand. So the upper left and upper right images are from various points in the Milford Track, and the lower is the ski Fields on the Remarkables, Queenstown. I took these, composed them and flipped them.

    I want to add in a foreground focal point, like a character, or trails of characters moving through the snow. I feel like the four prominent rocks are creating an implied line so I will add the characters in to match that.
    And polish the background mountains a wee bit.
