    Am I crazy?

    This is the kind of stuff I think and draw about all day. So, does that make me crazy?

    Nah not here, and you're not alone.

    Once when I was fifteen I also drew a skinless monster with scary appendages and such, can't find the pic though...it was pretty dark and gory. One of my first things with coloring using PS....shame I lost it.

    So 2 advices, first always try to save and file away all your stuff neatly, and next to that, keep thinking stuff like that, don't be afraid to go further!

    Nice muscle work btw, used a ref? Because it has some slight mistakes, but you don't see me complaining.

    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    its not my cup o' tea, but if you're crazy, its in a good way. In this forum I think its called "normal". Plus JLAlfaro's "Knife Party" would take the prize for crazies today.

    OK...

    ...Plez point out what is wrong, my eyes are crossed to my own art. I can't see it in any other way that what I see. Like I said, I am crazy.

    ...Oh by the way, the person on the hooks is me. Hows your sister look!

    this actually looks a LOT like the sort of things i drew when i was in high school.

    dont get caught up in the "everything is either side view or front view" thing.
    try to think 3-dimensionally.
    imagine your character in real life, and like a movie camera, you can move all around him, 360 degrees.
    at what angle will he look best?
    maybe its from the back, or up high. maybe we are looking up at him from down below.
    (high and low are especially important)
    experiment with little doodles before you start drawing the final picture.

    next, start to think about dramatic lighting.
    right now, you are simply adding an "atmospheric" lighting to the characters.
    the deep areas are dark, the light areas are light.
    (ie. armpits are dark because they are deep)
    look at someone outdoors on a sunny day and see how they create dynamic shadows.
    how their arms cast shadows across their body for instance.

    hope this helps

    Malign: This is SUCH GOOD ADVICE! If I had somebody tell me this in highscool about my drawings of demonspawn, paladins, and big-boobie'd women I tried to hide from my parents, well, I'd be a better artist today. TAKE HEED! Lest you join me in this eternal torment! **rattles his chains**

    Seriosuly though- try to think of the figure occupying a 3D plane, with a bg, environment, props... what are you trying to say? What's the STORY of your drawing, and what is the best way to TELL that story, visually speaking? Not to knock doodles, those are great too.

    Good work! Keep at it!

    -Andrew

    Now that you say that, I do see it. Thanks. That is the whole reason I came to this site. To expand the universe that I have created in my mind. Expect alot more, with a different look to it.

    BTW there is a story to it all. The madness that I had to live through, I have been scrbbling it for years and someone told me to take the next step. With most of my art there is almost always a poem in one way or another.

    You're no crazier than the rest of us here, but I do think you need to do a few more anatomy studies.
