    Character Design - C&C please

    Hi again,

    I studied some more since the last post and I have definitely improved.
    This character has had its first pass of colour / shading
    But before I put too much more in I was wondering what its biggest flaws are so
    I can attempt to iron that out first.

    thanks in advance.

    I like some of the costume elements, especially the scroll storage backpack. The anatomy looks like complete guesswork. The lighting is inconsistent and really flat. It isn't at all clear why he has no legs. Sticking him in the exact middle of the frame is pretty uninteresting from a composition standpoint. I would strongly recommend the use of some kind of reference when attempting figures.
    Will design for food, provided that we all agree that money is edible.

    Where are the legs? If the character has no legs, why is that not made evident? How does the costume work? How is the backpack attached? Why isn't the structure of the figure solid? Why is the left wrist broken? Why is the figure stuffed into the upper side of the page but there are huge empty spaces on the sides?

    Practice the fundamentals of drawing. Composition, structure, perspective, lighting, anatomy.

    Recommended book: "Successful Drawing" by Loomis.
