"a chain is only as strong as its weakest link" EEP..thats deep! o.o
Great work, really nice anatmy. Remeber the radius goes to the thumb, the radius generally bows outward from the elbow. The Superior logus muscle follows this bend but flattens about 2/3 the way to the hand. You have described this really well on this cool pointy fingered guy.
The comic book feeling of the last one rocks! Reminds me of a Korn video clip (which is sweet).
Damn! you just pump tese out!
the dog is my fav, but you need to work moer on teh hands, goo dstart, but you can take them so much further.
i want to see some leg studies now mate
no disco anatomy like some gym guys here!
Hi man, you got some cool traditional stuff :] That oil with the skulls is real nice, I'd love to see you use the same kind of approach to your digital stuff. The hulk is real nice to. The green guy with long hair is about to fall of the cliff though. Overall the studies are of pretty muscular men and stereotypical woman, try mixing it up with more normal built guys (Not showing all muscles through the skin weather there big or skinny) and more natural looking ladies. Keep it up :]
Waka I'll get on to more hands ASAP,and legs HEHE!
JOVEYou nailed it on the stereotypical stuff. I've always had an affinity towards the ideal and less toward the norm. A guy told me the same thing about one of my scultures. I will definately calm things things down a bit.
KatsarosYou're still being modest
JoveThanks for stoppng by th SB, And yes that's a huge jaw on that skull. I was going for a little Acromaglia look, but is still looks like a human with a HUGE jaw, Thanks Man. It was good to see some of your new stuff. You've got some skillz my friend.
Oki I concur with that observation. I hate to admit it, but I was trying to hide a really bad sketch with all of that dark stuff. Thanks for stopping by and again welcome to SSG #39
cool new stuff. really like the traditional stuff. the predator sketches have lots of potential to me. I just love that character. to help with the fireman dog... the shadows seem like they should have a bit more color to them. more!
dude that baby is freaking creepy...awesome... but creepy.
is it a baby for your story. it looks like it should be. glad to see some more concept for it. kids propotions are always so hard for me, the arms little big and the legs a little small but I think it totally works with the whole freak family idea.
ChiliYeah thanks for looking at it. I hadn't really thought about adding it to my story yet, but it would be creepy. And yes the proportions are wonky. You've got an Avatar also, AWESOME!!!
With your muscle studies> Now were talking! Im liking your proportions alot. what are the lines with circles on the end for/mean?
The female portrait is flawless in tonal quality. The Predator is god.
man she is damn hot! http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a1...-Portrait-.jpg
the last one ... mhhh their is a lack of values and the contrast is really to high, is it your screen or what did you do with them?
some value studies would be good.
anyway cool stuff so keep it up
Love the predator...I have lots of mini ones on my desk here at work!
Maybe try highlighting his dredds a bit more? Coz they're very dark at the mo.
He would look really cool if you put him into an environment too!
Your starting to nail those leg proportions really well, very technical work (be careful on those leg spreads though, especially since no one really knows how well hung the pred really is). You have rendered the predators helmet material to read really well - not to shiny not to flat.
The Dalmation is good, maybe desaturate the objects that are not your subject a bit more (I am assuming the Dalmation and type on ribbion, in the middle, are the subject). Also lighten the ribbons the type is on to increase contrast and readablity. It's a great comp no matter what you do. I get the feeling that it's one of those pieces you can tweek forever.
bad ass man, I think you are already making big progress just from the last predator you did a few days ago. the lighting on the back arm is my favorite. you have just enough reflected light to show its there. these quick paintings are great for letting go of details that aren’t necessarily important and just getting down to the most important lighting and shapes. nice work.
ChermillaThank you for the C&C much appreciated. It would look better with a few more highlights on the dreads and an environment.
KatsarosThanks buddy for the observations and the FUNNY one about the PRED "hung" that was pretty funny.
ChiliBrother as always it's nice to see your take on stuff you know my growth level pretty well.
Nice stuff man, I especially like the woman with the black hair. There are some problems with the eye studies where you do two eyes and one eye is close to the "edge" of the face due to the angle, the far away eyes looks a little flat and I think the pupils/irises (spelling?) are to small overall. Keep sketching and posting :]
Jove Thanks for the C&C I need to spend more time on some Eye studies.
Smelly Thanks for the warm Suggestion it Helped. I envisioned Pred skipping in the forest.
Kenny Thanks Man. You're SB has great portrait work also.
Waka Thanks brother, I've been swinging iron and graphite "What would Conan do" I'll get hot on some enviros, and I believe I owe Jove some silouetted forms as well.
All of my SSG suggestions have really helped.
Thanks Guys. DRAW,DRAW,DRAW,DRAW,DRAW,DRAW,DRAW,DRAW,
