    hey hey, max!
    ha ha, when i saw this one i thought for a second it was one of my old models...same exact breasts amazingly enough...Maybe someone figured out cloning back in the late 70s and got her as a baby girl, then sent the clone up to pittsburgh! seriously... its a good rendering!

    i gotta "hands" it to ya: http://elseworld.com/max/sketchbook/012006.jpg is a sweet looking update. However, i feel like even in the gestural poses you should make more of an effort to get hand structure at least somewhat delineated... also it seems like hands and feet are generally drawn too small.

    all of your robots mechs and transformers are taking me back---that zombie prime is reallly freaking sweet...Did you use some reference for this? What did you use to come up with the uncovered robot parts??? I'm working on this gigantic robot concept and want for the texture to work kind of like that.

    cheers!
    -joel

    guggenmaneuver: I didn't use any reference for zombie Prime, just made stuff up, trying to make it look functional. Inspiration was probably Derek Yaniger's work on the Transformers: Generation 2 comic (which I think is still available in TPB if you wanna check it out--just be sure you're looking at Yaniger's work and not Manny Galan's).

    Will pay more attention to the hands next time, and keep an eye on hand/foot size. Thanks for stopping by!

    dCepT, always good to hear from you. I'll try to keep heads in the proper proportion.

    rough concept...

    Wow, neato beastbot concept. Looks like a combo of Beast Wars and G1 beasts.

    BONEs

    Glad you are doing some life sessions <> very important part of the mix <> you are over shading quite a bit <> when you have a longer pose <> do 2 or 3 shorter versions of it to start <> walk around the model <> mentally put yourself in the pose <> longer poses give you the opportunity to understand the pose better <> use that opportunity <> the better you understand something the better you will draw it <> or said another way, if you don't understand it you can't draw it <> longer poses are about better understanding not about about rendering i.e. shading <> use your darks to describe form and use only enough to get the job done

    Variety Of Line

    I just say this on another thread but is applies here as well!

    I would highly recommend using a much softer lead and really try to vary the pressure and try to get more variety in your line weight <> lines don't just inclose shapes they describe form.

    mentler: Thanks for all the great tips...I will especially pay more attention to the line diversity. I blame any and all overshading, for the rest of my life, on Zebz

    Zebz: heheh...see above

    Inkfish: Thanks

    Jokisalo: Thanks

    Qxzi: Thanks, man. I paid very close attention to the toy that picture is based on...right up to the fact that he's missing some parts I guess he does look a bit legoish.

    Fat Kid: What? Don't people just float around in space where you come from?


    Okay. Se we've got this comic book convention coming up in April. Realistically, that'll probably give me a month to draw ~100 panels, working a couple hours a day, if I want to have a product. So I'm trying to come up with a story and a style that's both good-looking and minimalistic enough that I can sustain that sort of pace.

    No reference on these, but some inspiration from Michael Parkes. Cool stuff, if you're not familiar with him, check him out here: http://www.umtoquedearte.com/diamond/mparkes1.htm

    Anatomy's a little wacked here but for these I'm focusing more on ideas and style. Tomorrow's another Naked Friday!

    Hey, nice updates man! Mentler&#180;s advice was posted on my thread, in case so wanna check out why. I would recommend you to try different shading techniques, just to see what results you will get.

    Each one, teach one. P e a c e

    Hey, great stuff! On the knee area there is a lot of improvement. Crit is that the hands on the figures still look a bit small, like on 012606.jpg (the balloons are great : P ) A good rule of thumb is to remember that the length of the hand, from the start of the palm to the tip of the middle finger is more or less 1 head in length. The middle finger is half the length of the whole hand (more or less).

    Really, there's a lot of improvement in the figures, waiting to see more!

    Cheers.

    Thanks for all the comments eyeryone...I don't have time to respond right now but I will with my next post.

    I got me one of those fancy "blending stumps" the other day. I'd resisted getting one for a long time, because I'd look at them in the store and imagine using them, and it was kinda like fingernails on a chalkboard.

    But I finally figured, what the hell, and tried it out. It was, in fact, exactly like fingernails on a chalkboard, though (thankfully) to a lesser degree.

    But i kinda like the effect. Might hang on to the thing.

    TGping: I mostly use 11x14 paper.

    Jokisalo: Thanks!

    TFK: Glad you approve

    dCepT: Thanks.

    bRØk3n_sPiRiT: Thanks dude. I'm looking for a rhythm in the legs that I think is making them come out a lot better...it's the big thick line here: http://elseworld.com/max/sketchbook/011406.jpg

    jtheanswer: Got any different shading technique suggestions?

    Qxzi: Here's some more figures for you.


    Kinda out of it today. Was hard to get going but I did manage to crank out a couple sketches.

    Dynamic poses.. I like! Your wrists and ankles tend to lack some definition, though..

    Good to know you're pushing even though it's hard to get started..

    Keep fighting!

    Thanks for the comments Will make the rounds tonight...

    First, a robot and some shading:


    Wasn't happy with last week's Naked Friday...had to ignore everyone's advice today. Not that I don't appreciate it, but sometimes you just have to shut out all the other voices and do your thing. Was pretty happy with the results, except for the one that's crap.

    Figures, figures, figures! The improvment is all over everything, Max. You're definatel making some serious strides and covering some ground. I'm very proud!! Just keep going and keep growing. And I hear what you say about the millions of voices... somtimes you just have to go with your instincts. That stuff locks in over time anyhow. Don't sweat it. Keep at it!
