kuumehike - Thanks for the feedback. Yep, gotta get to doing more studies.
Meanwhile, here is this. I've spent way too much time on it already and this is as good as it's gonna get for now.
Fixed some things like the axe/scythe actually leaning on the shoulder now. Tried a few versions of the face, since the distorted skeleton didn't work out. The hand holding the weapon is horrendous but that's where the studies will come in hah.
Hey man, as I told you before I think you'll develop some cool compositions! This one for example is pretty badass! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...0&d=1334840097
I'd suggest you to work mainly traditionally at this stage, in order to develop a good line quality and control over your strokes... I agree with habrok, it would be useful to do some dynamic poses/construction practice (I think you can probably get some very good tips from Sporus), as long as composition thumbnails and geometrical form exercises (I can probably help with this)
...With some focused practice and plenty of our lord's beloved tennessee whisky, Jack Daniel's, I can see you improving quickly
Might do a lil' quick paint over of this last one, if I have some time later on
Yeah, more excerscise is what I need but the impatience to get to something "more concrete" always screws me over. Must learn self control, hah. I mean there's really not much more to say than I gotta get serious.
I was thinking of maybe doing something like thinking up an unusual composition, with poses that I have not done so often. Do loads of studies for them, then incorporate it all into the final piece. That way I can get both the studies and a nice "real" result of all the work.
EDIT: Or I could just stop bullsh***ing and do some goddamn studies.
hey, i totally hear you on the "no bullshitting" ... i am guilty of that dude.
if i had some specific advice it would be the foreshortening on this arm looks good but not great. these arms are better!
anyways thanks for the post on my SB, working on stuff atm.
keep at it. and nice last creature lady.
hey julius; you still out there? I wanna comment, but I think as you already got so much usefull advice it'd be better if I wait for the new batch.. is it comming?
SKETCHBOOK - my website - facebook company page
ooh yeah; did you know I'm a certified art-teacher? that's right. everything arty I say has been endorsed by the state of the Netherlands! (they'll be sorry soon)
Dont listen to anyones advice...keep drawiing digitally. dont stop..dont go back to pencil unless you feel like it....etc..
you have talent. All the fundementals will come with time.
the last few posts show dramatic improvement
Here's my first encounter with posemaniacs.com's time limit pose drawing.
I really like doing that, it's quick, fun, and a nice challenge since I have rarely done things like that. Doing these on a short time limit made me realise how slow I actually draw. Looking forward to improving my lines, making them more fluid and actually getting things to look good while doing them quickly like that.
More to come.
