Thread: Dave's Transformation
October 13th, 2011 #1
It starts today.
The name's David.
Here is where his transformation begins. From now on, at least once a day, I'll upload something, be it personal work, or studies. I plan to launch David into a new life, where his talent is not wasted, but instead improved.
This is the first Sketchbook I've scanned. It wasn't a drawing-only sketchbook, I also took college notes on these pages.
Comments are highly appreciated.

The coloring of the green guy looks good. I like it.
Some issues with anatomy. You tend to give your guys abnormally huge arms and back muscles (around the neck area).
Here are some suggestions:
1. The leg looks uncomfortable. You might want to rotate it a little. Raise the back muscle a bit so it doesnt look loike it's coming out from the waist area. Also, you want to watch out for the armpit area. Make the arm overlap the back muscle so they don't look merged.
2. Raise the right lower leg so it won't collide with the left leg.
3. The dude doesn't look like he can turn his neck. Drop the back muscle to give him some turning room.
Also, you should do some more big drawings. It's difficult to see the details of the smaller drawings.

@fishysmell thank you very much for those anatomy tips. I'm coursing an anatomy class in college and your tips come in very handy atm. Here are the drawings of the day:
Can any1 explain to me why is it that there's times when your replying posts won't be showed right away? I've tried to update this thread like three times now and all it says is that a moderator will allow my messages to be posted later on...4rth time I try to upload my drawings for feedback. Kinda weird and annoying.

Hello again, Dave
For the Demon Guy with the Diablo-ish thorn-beard
1. watch out for the muscle pair actions. When a muscle flexes, other "opposite" muscles must relax to accommodate the flexing muscle. For instance, when the bicep contracts, the triceps will have to give way so the the arm can move. This relationship means that when the biceps bulge, the triceps will have to flatten.
2. The left leg should be coming at or going away from the viewer. I think it will help with the movement of the Demon Guy.
3. The right leg should be doing a somewhat opposite thing of what the left leg is doing. I think this will help with the movement, again.
4. As it is, the weapon looks kind of odd sticking straight out to the side of the page. It will look pretty sweet if you angled it toward or away from the view (I'm leaning towards "away from the view").
For the Dragon Dude with the Tail
5. I would rotate the right arm a bit so the biceps are facing the viewer so it won't be such an awkward/uncomfortable pose.
6. Again, remember the contraction/relaxation dynamics of muscles. You can't have two opposite muscle pairs simultaneously bulging at the same time.
7. Too much crotch action. It's like he is trying to be the "alpha" dude in the room via crotch display. Try rotating it a bit to relieve some of that tension.
8. Don't forget the obliques and butt muscles on the sides (separate them from the leg muscles).
Good job keeping with your schedule so far, and thanks for making some of the images bigger!

As I said before in one of my posts (at least I think I did) I have an anatomy class in college. We sometimes draw a model who poses for 15 minutes or so, and sometimes we draw from anatomy books. Here are a few of those drawings I did that I like.

thank you very much indeed fishysmell, I appreciate your tips a lot. I'm so tired right now that I only uploaded one drawing with real life model. Tomorrow or thursday I'll have more.

This is a 100% photoshop illustration I did as a game's load screen. The game doesn't exist unfortunately. I use a genius tablet and aspire to have a cintiq someday. I'll keep on posting stuff. I enjoy comments and suggestions so please send me your thoughts.

Woah I am loving the studies in your last post. I actually think I learned something about the spine just by looking at that. Anyway, keep up the awesome work.
My Sketchbook would benefit from your critiques.

Late at night again my dear audience. This time I come with a series of pen made drawings that I did and have absolutely no anatomy in mind. Hope you all enjoy and leave comments and suggestions.
