I've never had something I felt was finished enough to post here, so now that I do I'm taking full advantage!
This is my Thunderdome Entry, the topic being "Two Races That Form a Symbiotic Rural/Tribal Society."
I also made a few supplemental information sheets just to show how they actually work together. (I probably should've spent the time I spent making these polishing my final piece, but oh well).
And what the hell, while I'm at it, here's my process!
C& C is more than appreciated!
Enjoy my bandwidth!

good idea, but it looks like it was let down by the old proportions/anatomy chestnut. Aside from a giant head, the main guys sholders are towide, and his left arm(behind the stone) is freakishly long. also, having no musculature at all in his arms make him look like a saack full of jelly.
I like the kind of alien , tribal atmosphere, but like the others say uld work on the anatomical design. Especially look at the silhouette's of the characters forms, i.e there general shape before you look at details such as texture and tone. Good way to practice is to black out the entire figure, if you like the shapes and it still reads well (ie you can see what the character is doing) then fill in the details. Disney use this technique a lot , it rocks !
waronmars: I was aware I need to work on my anatomy, but pointing the problem areas for me is a huge help! I've spent the last six months drawing freakishly out of proportion characters at work and I'm going to have to work hard to undo the damage. Thanks!
Mat_Ratcliffe: That silouhette method is what I used to paint the character in the middleground, and I think he turned out far better because of it. I'll remember to do that more often in the future.
