Hi, nice stuff, my only advice right now is to pick up an anatomy book or start observing the people around you and how other artists draw anatomy, cause your characters are really getting down because of the lack of anatomy knowledge here.. Otherwise beautiful work man , and keep it up!
Dile_ I hear ya. Actually, in college, figure drawing was just about my favorite class. And while the stuff I drew in those classes was realistic, I think i've always tended to a more stylized approach...that it is...up until recently. I really wish there were some cheap good figure classes in Boston. I'd take them in a heartbeat. Any good book recommendations?
Sorry about our failed sketch group meetings, hopefully we can get something organized soon. Starting this weekend I have a little vacation so let me know when you'd be free, I'll bring a bunch of my anatomy books to study from My teacher is holding figure classes on Sundays but you'll need to find a way to get to Somerville. I think it's walking distance from the Lechmere green line stop.
last SP looks great, very expressive, i really like it.Enviroments are a bit messy from waht i see, but concepts and figures look really good.I especcially liked the progession with the knight character...keep this up and posted, update more!
haha love the selfie there. i always enjoy it when people actually look like they had fun drawing themselves. and it finally came to me that your tree king is reminiscent of a carlos huante monster with bark! diff styles of course great designs mate!
The character sketches are cool, and it's intresting to see the development of the characters. I have to agree with Gnoll concerning the enviros, I think they're a bit messy. But what the heck perfection through practice, eh? Keep posting!
I decided to redesign the Tinman from Oz. I don't know if he was ever considered a robot, but I figured he's made of tin, needs oil...that's close enough. So I really pushed the twisted part of it. My idea is that in the future the oil industry employs these man-machine-bots. Essentially just large machines with human heads, that drill, use the heavy equipment and get dirty. I figure that it's also an extremely dangerous job and so they use the machines, instead of regular humans for security purposes. My concept was to show that this was a grulling job, and the humans are essentially just morphed right into the machinery...and I really wanted to show the "heart" area as missing...so that's the reason why I opted for the doughnut shaped chest.
Just a first sketch. I may change some things. I need to add more smoke stacks i think.
