    Another standard/clique warrior character I was playing with. Let me know if the lighting is bad, please. I was playing with the grayscale values still studying that...

    Hey man! Saw you in the Critique section, I don' remember that you got any good feedback. What I would advice you to do is practice one thing at a time. At the moment you have trouble with perspective, anatomy, color and value all at once with the way you're working. You have good ideas and characters, and your general feel for proportions in the body is quite good, but other than that you're going to have a hard time attacking your problems if you challenge yourself with everything at once! I think you should try to make characters with just lines first, so that you can iron out as many anatomy and construction problems as you can before you start applying value and color to them. For instance, in your last post you ask about skin tones, when the main problem with that drawing/painting is the proportions of the guy's head: his cranium is tiny, both upwards and backwards.

    Thank you! I've been looking for some honest feedback. Finally. I will take that into consideration for sure and plug it into further pieces as well as this one

    Playing more with getting the anatomy more narrowed down toward "correct". Excuse the confusing workflow..I'm just throwing stuff down until I think it looks decent.

    Laying it down. Trying to get to flesh out the value. I'm being very analytical and worrying about the line art-as I am doing greyscale. Typical me. I need to stop it.

    Touched up the proportions on the head. Does the head still seems too small?

    Heya!
    I wholly agree with nouge's advice. It would be best if you took one step at a time...and for this purpose I'd personally suggest that you lay down the tablet for a while and work with paper and pencil instead.

    Looking at the progression here you seem to get distracted by how easy it is in digital media to pick up a brush and go much farther than the study calls for -stop that.
    Just sit down and do anatomy studies for a while, no values, no color. (Get some Andrew Loomis books!) When you're doing those, the knowledge of form/mass will come automatically, and with that you'll learn how to correctly place shadows. Then you can go back to photoshop and start learning color theory, but right now you're only messing up your own progress.

    Check it...Trying to set it up physically so I don't jump ahead and assume where the lighting is..I know I jump the gun. I feel like a MAY have improved? hopefully? this piece is no where near finished just sharing what I'm studying.

    I appreciate the comments on my thread, Wrennwick! I really appreciate them! I agree with you, 100% I really like your hand studies that you've posted, I think you got the gesture of the hand down really well. Try to get that gesture quality first, in your figurative work! You have the lines and shapes in the hand studies, make sure you draw those for your characters. Then go in with costuming and details, on top. That way you get the anatomy down, like that post that Nouge wrote for you Keep drawing!! Looking forward to seeing more

    @ Mike - hey yeah...awsome figures. For sure . Now you say my gestures are good. What exactly is "incorrect", the line work or the form? I'm not disagreeing with you at all. lol. I just want to double check exactly so I can narrow down what I need to work on...if that makes any sense?

    I think you can tweak the forms of your characters just a bit. When you do the gesture of the hands, you have the shapes and the lines in there to help get the anatomy right! When you do that for your characters, that will help you get the anatomy right as well. Get the S curve of the body down, or the action line. This line will help you determine the overall pose of the character. Then you go in with the torso, then the hips, the legs, the arms. But these are really quick lines to get the gesture of the pose first. Xia Taptara has really good videos on youtube on how to get gesture down. This helped me quite a bit! Take a look, I hope it helps! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tF0n8G_yClE

    Yeah awesome work but agree with Misteh about size. You want them small enough that they fit on the screen. Also, put a link to your sketchbook in your signature so people can find you. Keep it up \o/

    Would definitely recommend drawing a lot more than one body on one page so you can improve faster! Also make sure you get those forms correct and copy them pretty much exactly how it is.

    Misty Thank you. I'm flattered. I honestly think I have a lot more practice to do. I agree with the others. I'll keep it up if you keep it up, how is that?

    Bri Yeah I do have some sketches with 10 second poses on them. I just don't post those I guess I should start. Thanks again for the suggestions! Appreciate it!

    Mike Took a look at that youtube vid. He has a similar technique. I love it! I will start implementing that into my techniques. Instead of doing such a stiff gesture I will just start flowing out like a FORM with the gesture along with the S-Curve. Love it. Thanks!

    Uyeno Yeah I think I'll start posting more 10 second gesture sketches. I need to slow down and "smell the roses" with my practice. I tend to jump into the fun stuff too early. An old instructor once told me to NOT SKIP THE STEPS. He IS right. Thanks again Uyeno.
