    I'm doing it! I'm making a thread!

    Hey everyone!

    Now would it blow everyones minds if I started up this thread by posting some pictures from references you've all probably seen thousands of times before?

    Probably not, but I'm commited to actually starting one of these threads, and if that's what it takes then that's what it takes!

    CRITS AND COMMENTS WELCOME

    Oh man, thanks a lot. Although I can't really take all that much credit, for the most part I was just going through the motions of copying down what I saw in the books.

    At any rate, here's some more original work from today. Hope you guys don't hate it.

    - bit of an edit here, I'm not quite sure what a good resolution to upload these is, I don't want to make them too big. But at the same time I think at the moment they might be a bit small, opinions?

    Added the pictures from the first page here, so changing the thumbnail will be easier without shifting stuff around.

    Was in a bit of a rush tonight, but I couldn't not do it. Unfortunately Lincolns arm looks really off, and his whole suit area is blehhh...

    Also hands.

    Tried drawing some Hogarth, thought it might be helpful for learning anatomy and such.

    You have really effective construction! I'm just starting to do this, but it's not as good as you. Any advice of how to get to your level?

    TomasBj: Thanks dude.

    Dominicque1: Nobody should ever ask me for advice, but what i can say is look at one of Gottfried Bammes' books. Is good.

    So for today I did some digital stuff but none of it really felt worth posting, or saving for that matter.
    So instead I just threw together some perspective-y stuff at last minute.

    Don't about throwing stuff out, man. I think in the past 2 or 3 days, I've thrown out roughly 30 pages of sketches XD

    As for the image resolution thing, I think about 800 pixels is max length you should go with a pic, otherwise it'll be wider than the actual thread :3 As for height, I wouldn't go much farther than 1000 pixels.

    Anyway, I love your figures/characters! They have a lot of personality and no stiffness (something I haven't been able to figure out how to do myself >.<) Keep it up! ^^

    If you fail at something, you suck at it, so trying is therefore the first step towards being sorta good at something!

    I have a sketchbook and a deviantArt! FurAffinity and pixiv too if you can find 'em.

    Hey Yuu, thanks for answering my question!
    You know, writing this post I wanted to reply to what you said about the 'stiffness' but I realised it's nearly impossible to write about without it sounding dirty or hilarious.
    Haha... stiff.
    At any rate, yeah I personally think it's still something I really need to overcome. Thinking about it I think it may have something to do that I never really know what to do with a characters arms, so they're always in this tense position.


    So, yeah I missed out on posting last night. But I'm making up for it with such exciting content as hands and feet!

    Well hey, we're all adults here! (at least physically anyway)

    As I said, I just don't see much stiffness in your poses. Your characters look very natural to me ^^

    If it helps, I never really know what to with my hands, either XP I just keep them in my pockets when I'm not doing anything with them.
