ok, so i thought i would milk the "Olaf" stuff.....
here are some sculptures i did of him.....
( also wanted to try out my signature.... )
llothcat, yeah, heh, he is a freakin good teacher.....and yeah he pretty much worked me to the bone aswell.... i have had a....complex year, i transfered schools 1/3 way through the year... probably the best decision of my life!!!!
btw, are these images too high quality, are they loading fast enough, i know somtimes that puts me off viewing peoples sketchbooks
Icey, ha, yeah you cought me out!..... they are done in Maya, and i will keep posting indeed!!!
here is some life drawing, i really cannot be stuffed scanning these as they are A2, so they're just snaps from the camera ( sorry if they are a bit dodgy ) .... if you only crit one thing, i'd prefer if you did these, i never get enough criticism on my life drawing
this one was scanned, and are just from ref "anatomy for the artist" to be precise
Magic Man, thank you so much!!!, in my eyes thats one of the best compliments i could get..... i might post a bit more of the work on him some other time..... i don't plan to do anymore with him, he was a huge learning tool, but i'm on to other things now....
i promise i'll have an indepth look at your sketchbook once i get broadband( in a couple of weeks hopefully!!!!) looking through seven pages of images on dial-up is a little daunting at the moment
tullie, hey thanks a lot for the help and stuff, i'l check out your sketchbook soon
to you "shy" types PLEASE some crits!!!!! and be harsh!!!!!
I will eventually post in everyones sketchbook that posts in mine
Was just looking at your life drawings; I was wondering how long you spent on each pose?
At my life drawing I spend three hours on a pose, that my sound excessive, but it made a huge difference.
I think you just need to cncentrate more on each pose and it will come. And putting more work into the face as well. I was told not to draw in the models likeness, or deviding up the face. But to concentrating on the shadows and allowing them lead your pencil, if you like. It made my work more realistic and made the face match the body.
I recommend virtual pose ^^. I love your character sheets, very dynamic. Plus; I love your style.

The Olaf drawings are sweet, but for each of your life drawings there seems to be a problem with the size of the arms, if you fix that up, they'll be hard to crit! and what about inventing a mate for Olaf?
and when drawing a nude they say you should direct all the attention of the viewer on the body and leave the face vague, like how you are drawing it. but I think drawing realistic faces (as Tullie said) by themselves is great practise, you've obviously got the talent.
I just signed up, been browsing here for along and now is it time to register, especially when I saw this thread, really wanted to say i LOVE the style of the vikings and the lifedrawings, kickass stuff man! keep it up.
