    Hellfire Prison

    hey, new to conceptArt, just starting to create some content for a portfolio.

    the idea is a sort of hades type prison full of demons and creatures, sort of a theme i guess.
    these first images are of a warden type character
    All and any critism is welcome

    (sorry no access to scanner at the moment)

    Uhm the pose is so still that you can't find something good. Try to move him around, change the theme, add at least some line under his feet when you're sketching. If you want to try again the silhouette then do it digital and use a rectangular solid brush and let the hand go.

    I'm sure you will find something more interesting like this.

    I moved back to silhouette stage and re imagined what this character should be about, aiming for a more fat grotesque type creature....here are more thumbnails

    all crits are more than welcome.....

    You're making a big mistake about silhouettes. Those are meant to find new forms and shapes, why do you need 20 similar silhouettes? You're basically making a sphere and adding limbs over and over but what's the purpose? You already have that shape, you're changing minor details about that shape and this is something meant to be done when the shape is already chosen. If you're searching for some new ideas for your character why don't you try to do at least 5 completely different silhouettes? It doesn't matter if after you've done 5 you don't like any of them, they are silhouettes, at worst you've lost 5 minutes doing 5 shapes but you're moving your brain and this is always positive.
