I don't see an image?
It's daytime in America now I think, CA servers always go mad at that point~ very annoying and needs some fixing.
I see it, a bit small though...ironic as I normally comment that items are too big.
My main problem is with the position of the lower hand/arm in relation to the handle of the hammer. It's an action pose for sure, but I don't know about the position of the legs/feet especially the extended one. Maybe someone else more experienced can explain better, but the thigh/hip connection may be off.
My issue with the figure is that it looks more like he is actively posing than midway through any sort of action. Maybe that's what you're going for, but if you want to make it look like he's getting ready to swing his hammer, you should try swinging something and see how your arms and legs position themselves.
It seems to me that you trying the same style as Jack Kirby or John Buscema in the 60s, but using your own drawing, not simply copying them....
You could give a look in their work to see how they gave action to their drawings.. I think it can be very easy to you...
Hey there. I know you already decided to redo the pose, but I based on the original sketch, it looks to me like maybe you learned how to draw anatomy (specifically looking at the legs) from looking at superhero comics. There are some lines/curves that look right, but some others that indicate you don't really know how the muscles/bones would look and move naturally and realistically. The prescription for this of course is to study from life references.
It seems like you have pretty decent polish as far as comic book style, but as everyone will say, improving your foundation based on real life [anatomy] will take your work to the next level.
keep going, but don't forget to finish this work, from time to time, redo... it will be a good practice for you to check your improvements....
A few things:
- His legs don't meet the upper body where they should.
- While he could technically do that stance with his left leg like that, it is a very uncomfortable one. It's much more natural to keep it pretty straight so he's able to properly adjust his balance. This is especially important with him holding a heavy object on his right side.
- Speaking of heavy objects, I'm unable to see the impact the weight of the hammer has on his pose. His upper body should really tilt towards that side (though don't overdo it, as it'll make him look as if he's falling.) when that much weight is affecting him.
- I also think his left arm should dip down quite a bit, making him point his elbow at about a 45 degree angle downwards. And you should consider him pointing his head at a similair angle to up the comfort level a bit.
- His legs and arms look really weird. I assume you were going for a muscular look, but it just consits of large enveloping smooth surfaces (which is not what pronounced muscles look like.)
