    inspectorsokar Thanks
    TheGnoll I added more contrast to the Minotaur.
    BludHund I agree the best way to immerse yourself in your subject matter. I'll try visit the dog pound or petco to do a bit more animal studies.

    I sketch/painting for myself 3-5 hours a day. The rest of time is spent job hunting or finishing other people's project. Personal painting like the minotaur I kind of winged the initial stage and ended going another route for fun. While for other people painting I'll spend 1-2hours for thumbnails and research before I bunker down.

    Minotaur: It looks very strong...I would have liked to see some feet, though.

    Soccer design looks really professional...nice and polished.

    Keep up the pace!

    BludHund I think you are right feet would be nice. I'm a bit minotaur-out for the moment after the repaint.

    I been playing a bit of Mass Effect 2. That game is gorgeous and I thought I should give some Robot concept a quick try.

    hey man

    the minotaur turned up cool-the shoulder area still looks kind of weird (as if he was shrugging his shoulders) and i really can't figure out where his clavicles or his deltoids.Apart from the obvious continuos anatomy refreshing, taking a pic of yourself in the position you want to pose yourself can help A LOT.
    No tracing, no direct copying but plain and simple reference as in looking and solving "problems" through observation.Anatomy constructed from scratch often tends to look exaggerated or inflated, while straight tracing tends to give unnatural and stiff results.I think starting with gesture/rhythm/shape, slowily working it out using reference as a guide, and resorting to construction when you get stuck usually works for me.

    As for your observation, "studying" animals surely provedes you with a solid design library (works the same for human characters).But focus on the bigger, general shapes, how animals move and articulate and how their differerent body parts are proportioned in relation to one another.A solid animal drawing book (look up Ken Hultgren, Joe Weatherly or Glenn Vilppus) can do a massive difference.Do get your hands on one if you're interested in the subject, and study from it (as well as studying from life as you did).
    Regarding the latest creature sketches, i like the sketch of the long-legged cockatrice.Some of these sketches has waaaay too many straight lines imho.Go batshit crazy loose in the initial stages and tighten up of stilized while simultaneously working on the construction to get a lively look.

    Keep 'em coming!

    HolyBovine It's free on facebook. Just type in Lionside Soccer and download the app from the fan page.
    TheGnoll I agree the minotaur has this chunkiness going on that could use some more tweaking. I posed myself for reference, though I think too skinny to pull it off. I'll keep doing some more anatomy studies.

    I love straight lines. I'll try to loose on some more creature designs more organic? I'll check out Glenn Vilppus animal guide the artist you suggested. I been looking at more animals. The tricky part for me is they are so hairy, it's hard to see the structure underneath. I look at still pictures of animal skeletons not the same.

    Braintree Glad you like the button.

    I polished up a robot design a bit more. Study of airsoft rifle. I have the at home and it's fun to play with. pew pew. Did a anime sketch of my sister's friend who helped her wedding.

    Looking good. Especially that very last image. The claws look very solid, something that was missing
    in a lot of your previous creature sketches.

    Your sister's friend is hot...oops did I say that? Remember to avoid 'banana-hair'. Think layers of
    ribbons, don't highlight/shade the individual clumps of strands as if they are each their own form. Apply
    the value-changes at the crests and troughs of the waves the hair forms. Also it may help to think of
    the whole hair as one big form, with gaps in it.

    these rifle studies are an excellent exercise. Everybody needs a little pew-pew in their life The more
    details of tools like this that you internalize, the easier you'll find it to fill in the gaps when you're
    sketching ideas for tools.

    Keep it up man, and develop some of these creature thumbnails a bit further.

    Hey PK. Mate, great stuff. It's been too long since I came in here but that lets me see the contrast, you are really moving forward. I just started to collect ref for a minotaur so now I'll leave here pumped. Well done.

    Falchion Opps I probably need to move the scope forward or expend the stock more.
    BludHund Hehe Thanks. Yea I tend to make banana hair for anime style, kind of a bad habit. I notice I do that kind of hair for more realistic portraits too which is a no no. I'll try to thin out the layering next time.

    I like your figures in your sketchbook and got me back into finishing some more hogarth studies and poses from the imagination.

    jigje Thanks, your portraits have gotten more polished
    Black Spot I hope she does.

    TheGnoll I adjusted the shoulders on the minotaur. I tried to add some feet as BludHund suggest but it came out funky, so I left it. I don't fully understand the balance in animal hide legs. I been doing more basic shapes and checked out vipplu construction for animals. Animals shelter is pretty cool but it smells funny... Every cat and dog moves slightly different from each other.

    More studies. I think I'll be starting a new painting soon.

    Painting in progress...they are making babies? I tried a slightly different approach thinking of higher contrast in the beginning as others suggested. I'm hitting a personal crossroad to learn new programs like flash/animation or to focus more on drawing and painting.

    Updated painting. Does the face now look somewhat attractive and motherly? If not, I'll make some adjustments.

    I just finished up this painting.

    It all started when a lumber jack went into the forest to chop some wood and incidentally freed a trapped forest goddess. The lumber jack is taken back thinking he came across some sort of genie. Being eternally grateful for being freed, the goddess plays along and tries her best to grant him three wishes.

    The lumber jack wished he could fly so he could touch the sky. The goddess thought for a moment since she couldn't give him wings. So she grew a towering size plucking the earth underneath him so he could ascend to the heavens. Elate the lumber jack desired to share this experience with someone and wished for a child. From the mist came a flock of birds and a stork delivering a healthy baby. The lumber jack now became a proud father.

    Overwhelmed by these miracles, the lumber jack goes on a bent knee. "Now that we created a child together. Will you marry me forest goddess and help raise a warm and loving family?," The lumber jack requested. "Is this your third wish?," The goddess asked. "No," replied the lumber jack and shyly mention it was his humble proposal.

    The forest goddess happily agreed and raised 12 more children together with the lumber jack. Myth has it that one of the children was named Paul Bunyan. The lumber jack never did used his third wish, but when you marry a goddess who would have the need?

    yeah that facebook app you worked on looks really professional! with that last enviro with the girl and the rock.. if she is so massive it should be shown by expressing the atmosphere, she should not have values that dark.. however i feel that you have her hand right its just the rest of the body thats off.
