I posted an earlier version of this in the wips section. I've worked on it a bit since then, but I'm sure it still has issues in the way it's constructed and in the way it interacts with its environment (mainly the ground). Feel free to point out my flaws.
It may be some time before I return to this piece- It seems I'm going to be busy with other things for awhile.
Hey man, some really good studies, the William Maughan study looks great. Your line is looking really nice but some of the line sketches look a little flat (the He/She image). Maybe try and use your lines to describe form a little more, even using a faint line or leaving the line out completely where the light is directly hitting the subject.
softocean- I assume you're speaking of Masamune Shirow. Although I've seen some of the art from Ghost in the Shell, I'm not completely familiar with the artist; however, I am now curious enough to research him a bit. Thanks for coming by.
krossj- Thank you. Now that you mention it, the character in this post probably has the same issue. I'll keep your crit in mind- playing with lines has been fun for me lately. Attachment 337785
