The background pan is for my pink panther walkcycle, but i think i may have taken too many libertys with the design of the overall background.
SirGreenSock: Thanks for your critique, I reexamined the way i approach the figure, and thanks to you and another friend of mine, I was able to improve my life drawing considerably. Expect a new life drawing update soon.
Haha even if you didnt tell me the name I'd have recognized Debbie's routine. See some wrinkly-abs guy in there too!
These life drawings are way better, read and flow real well. Only crit Id have is taht knowing Debbie's poses id say youre not taking them far enough. The twists are definitely there and well done but i think you coulve exaggerated the gesture of her arms and legs a bit more to show the tension of the pose (and the fact that she looks like shes gonna snap in half any second). Part of this is foot placement, half the poses have very flat foot placement (close to each others plane wise), the strongest ones are the ones in which you exaggerated this in the gesture, because that in itself helps the foreshortening in the legs believable and the pose interesting.
Holy hell, I think this is the most replies ive ever had after an update or two! Thanks for the comments guys!
Some quick 30 second poses and studies from today, as well as a 2 minute from the weekend.
Jeri: Yep, the model typically does an average of 15 - 30 30 second poses, 15 - 30 one minutes, 9 - 12 3 minutes, and 9 - 12 5 minute poses. Sometimes students request for more 3s or more 5s, or a 10 minute here and there. Yes, being a life model sure as hell aint easy! very physically and mentally demanding. Whod have thought? LOL Thanks
Sirgreensock: Thanks for the crits once again! I will certainly credit you in my life story later on down the road.
EvilDisco: Thanks man! LONG LIVE APE! and EVIL DISCOS!
Sirio_brozzi: Thanks man! im always working harder on telling stories with my images, and putting in as much life and motion as I can.
Amer_Nazri: It gets easier the more you draw, however coming up with something new will always be a challenge. Maybe, I just love to sketch, hard for me to finish pieces, thanks to severe ADD Im workin on that though.
Maxetormer: DUDE, thanks a grip Sweet blog man! hope this new stuff suffices!
Je, je yep that does the trick, but the doc told me
to have this same treatment at least twice a week,
you wouldn't leave a poor sick slob like me with
out his Action Ape fix would ya
One small nick pick, try doing more fully rendered
pieces it would seem to me that your hiding from that,
then again we only see a fraction of your work
so I could be wrong, keep the badass lines coming!!
Man, this SB in itself is a sea of creativity, tons of fun stuff and great variety. Your stylization of the figure is great. I really liked this little sketch here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1168065127
Hope you can someday take that to the next stage. Keep the updates coming.
