    Waka > Im hitting up some figures tomorrow, though they will prob be sitting in saddles ill try throw a some variation in there.

    Today just a quick environment as promised. I let loose really, probably over did (under did?) the atmosphere. Anyways crits ect welcome, tomorrow going to try more poses/proportions.

    nice environment!! but since the sun is shining brightly and the land is elevated from the actual ocean, I dont think it would be so foggy

    I did a few poses while away from home. I realised that im missing characters from my main body of work. So im going to continue the divergence from my plans in order to get one up. Never done a full character before so we well see how I go; im giving myself three days. Anyway here are a few poses (no saddle ones though, I forgot).

    SmellyKit>Yeah, I think I had the atmosphere way too bright (trying to guve it that fairy/stocking over the lens like feel - didn't work). Below is a small darkened version (I think it works better).

    Just knocked this character up, not sure im quite strong enough on my anatomy to do such an unclad figure. Think Ill try a guy in robes.... maybe a kaftan? I can focus on the head more that way.

    My upper body anaotmy is mediocre and m hip/leg anaotmy just plan sucks (new done any studies on this area and it shows). Anyway I don't think ill take this further.

    I love the new environment version! looks more solid now!

    I really like the poses, they are a lot of fun! But I think the most recent drawing has porportional issues. Hands normally reach the middle of your thigh for example.

    keep it up! ^_^

    Smelly> Thanks heaps for the support!!!! The darker version of the environment is better (technically) but I think there is something "fairy tale" like about the lighting in the first.... or maybe im just attracted to the pure white flowers. The proportion of my character sucks my biggest problem is the foreshortening of the arms. The left one is meant to be receeding back (hence it not reaching the middle thigh) and the right one has its elbow receeded and bent. I think the soultion is to invest more perspective in my characters rather than try draw of the top off my head.

    Anyway heres another character I knocked up (off the top of my head), it is half way done but I think ill ditch it mainly due to proportions not translating well and start a fresh with another:

    hey, Damn nice enviroment, but the characters looks flat and somewhat stiff, try to do more dynamic poses or render them in moer dramatic light?

    Nice environment piece man. The action doodles are really good. I like the essence of the poses. Mine always look so stiff. Keep them coming.

    Daraf> Thanks, Yeah anatomy helps but having to learn the bones first is a drag - unless you love drawing skeletons.

    Waka> Yeah your right that my figures are flat. I don't thinks its the lighting as much as their poses and the perspective. My foreshortening really sucks. I really enjoy doing environments and stickmen poses. I try steer clear though, otherwise I would never focus on any thing else.

    Ok, after a few days tearing my hair out trying to create some characters, then trying to sort out perspective (esspecially for foreshortening) and just general too much study and not enough production..... I couldnt achive anything good!

    The soultion - Throw away the rules and just draw.
    The result - This thing, kind of a symbotic human-machine.

    And a close upside down (a close up thats upside down...hehe)-

    In conclusion, if its not working forget about it for a while and just let loose. The studies/skills you have practiced will come out naturally. Thanks for the support everyone keep it up!

    Smellykitty> yeah I snuck them in ;P

    Waka> I attempted to paint....

    Heres a bit of color... but im really not too good without reference. Which to me says one thing "more still life required". So im going to do a few still life studies to try and improve my tonal/lighting memory and understanding. If anyone has any tips on how to tonally render things without reference I'd appreciate the help.
