    Hi guys! I'm really having some trouble with anatomy, and i need to complete this piece before my moms birthday. if anyone could help with a redline that would be amazing. else any comments will be helpful. The flowers are still going to be rendered out and maybe some exrta work on the bark, but i think the rest of the painting is done.

    Looks nice The characters look very skinny and maybe it would be good that there would be something worth looking for, where the person is looking: a mountain top, building, or something . That's the place where the viewer's attention is going but there is nothing to see.

    Thanks Meralidina! I will consider the buildings idea, he was meant to be looking up at the vultures. or down at the valley. I'm not sure which :/ i guess that's the problem. He is meant to be slightly elongated, i prefer that look. I think the problem is more a skeletal one. but with my current anatomy knowledge i cant seem to make them look like they are in natural poses.

    Hey great work! I love the landscaping. As far as anatomy goes, there's a site I just started using which is really helpful.

    It's called posemaniacs.com

    They have a huge amount of references. But what really helps me the most is the drill they offer. It's a 30 second drawing challenge. Really useful!

    Also I downloaded a book from called Successful Drawing by Andrew Loomis.

    And it seems like you have a lot more experience with photoshop so I'd love if you could give me some critiques or feedback.

    I think maybe if you wanted them to look more naturally posed they would hunch a bit? The standing dude would probably have his hip sticking out on one side? (sorry, don't know how to explain that better...) The figure is completely straight now, which makes it look less natural. I like the style of them though
