    Dammmmnnnnn. Your enviroments and rendering skills are awesome! I feel as though I don't have the right to say this cause your skills are great but your characters are a tad weak compared to your ball breaking enviros. (The space ship nearly rendered me sterile). The poses and the general shapes lack appeal and life.

    look up lines of action and some stuff from animators about character, shapes, and rythme, force and straight against curves ( lots of terminologies I know but they will really help). Do life drawing alot and apply the stuff from animators to them. And if you can look up "force" dynamic drawing for animators, this is great for getting life and energy into characters. You don't have to know animation just some of the rules they apply to character and the sense of motion.

    Hope this Helps!

    Nice, glad to see the tip helped some. Your drawings have more energy now. The thing I would suggest though would be to use a more confident line. Some of the lines that you have for the drawings are sketchy, like you drew a series of lines instead of one smooth continuous line. I think you already know this but most pros and masters draw with their arm, this forces you to use more confident lines because your arm is alot less restricted than your wrist. Also try to start looking for shapes within a figure. Try to look for shapes in everything. This doesn't mean to look specifecally for squares and blocks. It helps alot to makes things look more 3d and constructive which is important, but looking for shapes helps with rythme and appeal.

    http://www.artisticanatomyblog.com/w...i-force-04.jpg

    http://www.artisticanatomyblog.com/w...i-force-01.jpg

    As you can see from these drawings ("force dynamics book), the shapes aren't just boxes and circles but ovals and bean and sausage shapes. The muscles automatically form shapes and from these shapes you create straight against curves which in turn create rythme. This added with lines of action and directional force will add lots of appeal and strength to your character.

    Here are some more stuff that should help:

    These have only preview clips but search through them if you want. There are some things that should help out.

    http://www.drawingforce.com/index.cf...fm?startrow=31

    Search up some stuff from preston blair on google images for gesture or figure drawing. It'll help alot as well. Also keep in mind to "push" poses. If a guys hip is leaning out you can exaggerate it to create a more dynamic pose.

    Anyways great enviros as usual. I'm envious, if you can bring your characters up to the level of your enviros you'll be awesome! Well...Even more awesome cause your already pretty awesome right now!

    Great stuff, really liking the dragon pic so far. Just a suggestion but I'd like to see some high value green fumes or liquid behind the figures in the foreground, to really pop their silhouettes. Keep up the good work!

    For that last one keep pushing it. The only thing I'm trying to figure out is the lighting. I'm thinking it's coming from behind him and being cut out of the foreground by trees.

    That makes me wonder about the dragons body though. The front of the limbs and such for instance look like they're in light. When I think it would be the opposite. If lights coming from the back then the front parts of the piece are in shadow. Then you add in the warm highlights of the fire to accent it. Bumping up the contrast from the lighting making things pop because right now it feels like the fire is stand alone in a sense that it's not really affecting much when bumping up the shadow then adding some simple highlights could help. Unless the change in the hue in the last revision was due to the fire, but I don't think the fire would cast that much light, more so some little highlights towards the distant limbs and a lot around the head and fire itself.


    Thats my 2 cents anyways. It's looking good though.

    Thanks @ BenjaminJL92: i´ve dome that with a ball point pen,very good for sketching i think
    Thanks @ bobmeatbag: yeah i can feel it while drawing,but still not dynamic enough
    Thanks @ JFierce:thanks very much for that earnest critic,you´re right with the lighting, but i tried to get a more world of warcraft like look and less realistic,in the next wip i added more green colour so the most of the dragon should be lighted by the sun in the background an the green lighting around him,i also added more darker areas
    but i not really happy with lighting,maybe it need some major changes

    its coming together nicely.

    on the termination/occlusion shadows of the dragon i wouldnt go black like that it flattens the form.

    check that you are keeping your lighting in mind. you should have some strong highlights on the raised paw. Also curving around the back, neck, and left side of the jaw!

    keep it up!

    Thanks @ wasabi89:done! i´ve added a lot of details,hope you like it^^
    Thanks @ Aryeh:i changed the lighting a little bit,but i`m not sure how dark it is on your computer display,maybe my TFT is to bright or brighter than normal

    this is next update,but its maybe to much detail
    the dragon should pop out more
    edit: i add som smoke and i think it`s more pleasant for the eye to watch it

    Some cool stuff happening in post #161 digging the perspective study and the environment props.

    Also that is one slick dragon design. Good usage of red and green contrast.

    Cool sketchbook, your composition is really cool!
    That upper part of the dragon looks awesome, the fire gives it that bad-ass look. I like that!
