    Various Character Designs (large download)

    These are some characters I've done in the last couple months, just for myself. I'm heavily influenced by Carlos Huante but as his work is jaw-dropping mine is rather plain, I have to work on cutting that perspective plane and make them more dynamic. And I threw in a couple heads I did in Zbrush, still have no idea what I'm doing with that program but it sure is fun.

    Thanks for looking,

    Roger

    So I'm thinking a few things here: Downsize the file size of these babies so they load at a reasonable speed. Fix the links for the first two. Hit ENTER between each link. Work very, very hard on your anatomy.

    Nice stuff I certainly see the carlos influnce the first too aliens look the best, perdy much all the following humans suffer from proportional problems especially the females, check the heads the bottom half of most look like they belong to a different figure. TheI like the last z-brush head. Overall nice post keep working hard work on proportion and keep posting for C&C.

    the heads are amateurly painted. you need to get better reference, paint from life more, or just not give up until they are painted well. they are not interesting in character...they need to be.

    same goes for other areas of your characters....you have talent...just stay away from huante from now on...it is holding you back. spending more time in anatomy books (bridgeman in particular) would serve you well.

    just being honest

    I definitely agree with jason, you have some talent, but I see all your images falling down because the actual designs, proportions, and thought out mechanical process isn't there as huante does.

    Get back to proper studies, turn off the huante dvds and take the time to knuckle down anatomy and everything else, dont be another "me-too" artist.

    Thanks for the help. I really appreciate all the advice. I've repainted some of the heads and put them in the sketches section if anyone would like to see the changes.

    well, i looked at the pics and saw huante all over them before i even read your text so if that's what you're going for you definitely got it down but now's the time to switch it up and add a little more "you" to it to make them truly stand out.

    i also second the suggestion to spend a little more time on anatomy, i think you may be trying to stylize like huante a little too soon.

    These are all very fair assessments. I'm going to delve deeper into older works and leave contemporary artists alone for awhile. Thanks for the comments.

    I think that you might want to tighten up the "Painted" look of your drawings. They lack some detail that might be disirable. Check out my take on "Dude with Mechanical Arm" here...
