glad to see that a lack of posts didn't discourage you. You see where you've drawn small, simple figures in dynamic poses while trying to maintain proportions...that's good...do more of that, they are coming out nice. For my tastes, your armor is slightly too exagerated....be careful....the more believable the better IMO. keep going with it, and keep proportions accurate. Personally, i really like that portrait of the old man
Thank you Nofingers for your reply ^^. I'll take what you said to heart. However, today I've had a major revelation! I'm extremily stuck in my motives! Always the heroic guys with big massive armors. I can't belive I've been so blind for so long! From this day on I´ll start becoming more versatile. I need to try new pencils, new techniques and so on. It won´t be comfortable, but I think it will be worth it in the end. That said, here is one of my latest sketches meant to be for soem sort of upcoming hobby GBA game.
Prophet: Thanks man, I'll try to keep it up and improve. About the game; It's pretty much a very simple action game. You have the undead horde streaming out of the jaws of the big skull trying to reach the well in order to poisin the water, thus spelling certain doom for the nice town. The player takes the role of a host of archers, placed in front of the well, and have to arch the arrows using a built in rollerball on the arcadecabinet. Eventually the player recieves specialattacks as well. The player will have to fend off xx levels in order to beat the game and hopefully get a highscore. That's about as much as I can say at this stage. I'll keep you updated with additional sprites as they come along.
Bartovan: You have my gratitude! Extremily encouraging ^^ Just out of curiousity though, could you be a bit miore specific about the parts that need refinement? Is it the anatomy, lines, values, composition, motives, or as I believe, all of the above =)?
A pretty quick Hogarth ref

Heh, I wanted to try out something new. I think I went farther from my regular stylization and aimed for something more realistic, at least in terms of values and shadows. Scared as I was I abandoned my trusty 0.5 mechanical pencil to try out a 6b pencil. I ended up liking it pretty much, although it felt somewhat uncomfortable. Anyways, here it goes.
