some more recent doodlydoo. I find that I am getting stuck on details recently, such as with the chow entry this week. Perhaps I need to plan a little better before I put it on paper? Crits welcome as always.
part of this week's chow. still working on the rest. I've spent too much time on this mechanical thing, because I have really no experience drawing mechanical things. I thought to push myself with this.
Way too long since I've posted, sorry. Working on a personal project of mythology-themed illustrations. Trying to get out of my comfort zone a bit. I've posted the throne drawing in the critiques section as well, so hopefully I can get some feedback here or there.
Beautiful work in here. I'm envious at how well you are able to capture the female form, very nice. I can't often much in terms of a critique but as some one earlier had mentioned it would be nice to see a bit more contrast in some of your works but I think you already started working on that. BTW: I also like the composition of the last image you posted. As far as his posture goes...I think it would be cool to have him leaning his head on his right arm with his spear held firmly and straight up in the air in his left. Just an idea though.
Twilightmoon777: Thanks! I try to get to the life drawing class as much as possible. As for the Odin piece, thanks again! I want him to have kind of a relaxed posture, almost slouching, and I do like your suggestion of holding the spear more vertically. Psychobuddy: Glad you like it, thanks! The Odin piece is going to be part of a series of illustrations, so there will definitely be more to come. I'll post more tomorrow!
I like the second version of the odin. It's a very relaxed posture but at the same time the guy still feels powerful and very much in control. Like he can get up at any second and start whooping some serious ass. :p
Hey dawnusllaw, nice progress. You have a strength in depicting the female form. I won't crit anything at this stage because you're already onto it all. Just keep working. Also, there is no need to apologise; update when you can and never give up.
Please give erudite, constructive critiques or give none at all.
The way you draw the human form is beautiful, and the shading you apply really brings the studies to life. Can't wait to see Odin, if you are still working on it! If I may suggest, maybe change the general shape of the chair: add more corners and harsher shapes on the leg? Though I shouldn't be talking haha. I'd love to see some of your finished work!
