Hey, that cloth scultpture is relly cool and a really good reference to practice color and tone. I wish I had one hehe.
I think your heart harvester design is looking more like concept art now! excellent work. Now chuck a perspective grid in thier and make the creature in blocks (like I kinda did in my latest work) then put in the curved surfaces (remeber the corners of the box act like a center line in 2 pont perspective so position the center of the sphere on them). The box method also helps for lighting (just sade one side of the box) - anyway give it a go.
Id also like to see 10-20 tiny thumbnails of possible backgrounds for the heart harvester, just remeber to base them on at least a one point grid so we have a sense of depth.
cool stuff, one thing i would suggest is to do more studies, nothing fancy just quick sketches whenever you have a few minutes to spare. It will improve your understanding of muscles, anatomy, and features.
I really like the cartoony eagle lines, but I think youve lost something in the colored versions. lines are just as much apart of a character as are its colors. pay extra attention to the shapes your original line version creates, and compare it to the shapes your colored ones make. Compare the one with the glasses, do you see how different their faces are?
the lined one has more character becuase the feathers are more ruffled, the beak is crooked and becuase of the eyebrow lines. before to keep these features in the colored version and it should feel much stronger!
Cool update. If you need a model one thing I've noticed is people are taking pictures of themselves and using themselves for models, you could move your body however you want to get exactly what you need
Hi lill lady, you've been posting more then me lately Nice studies, you seem to be going in the right direction, remember to lower the saturation and not just the brightness in the shaded areas. Love the narcissistic eagle
