One of the thumbnails explored:
Thanks Holland! I thought that the thumbs in perspective might give them a little more personal touch than the standard T-pose, but I see what you mean
good stuff mate. i might suggest the same thing Holland said. you dont have to draw them in jus one pose, jus watch out for drawing them in some perspective. bc in sketch #2 i dont know if im looking down at him or what lol. maybe you meant to draw him small, i duno, but jus giving you something to think about u know.
keep up the good work, hope to see some more of ur concepts
my subconscious does not stop begging my conscious to draw.
hmm does that mean im a slave to my subconscious?
at least it doesnt beg for crack. ha.
Thanks for the crit all! I´m very welcome to all thoughts and opinions that may help me improve.
mrd33ds , you wrote: "bc in sketch #2 i dont know if im looking down at him or what lol. maybe you meant to draw him small, i duno, but jus giving you something to think about u know." Im sorry, I just dont understand exactly whick one you mean
Another quickie before work starts:
try too more thinking about strong silhouette
Making some good progress. I'd recommend not trying to add lighting in your silhouette stage though, and as already mentioned try to avoid perspective views and letting your brush get too small at this stage. Keep up the good work
I tried really hard to find a constructive crit but the only thing I came up with was what was mentioned earlier, that your brush size seems a little small sometimes..
Maybe if I stretch, on the last piece the guys right leg seems to come out at a pretty sharp angle but then the bone seems to bend a bit so his foot ends up being level with his other one.. I guess
Keep it up, waiting to see more
1. Train your perspective drawing, doing 1-2-3 point studies. Just place some cubes and spheres to get feeling what is right and what is wrong.
2. Do anatomy studies - a lot of them. Every day figure drawing, silhouetting, facial anatomy etc.
3. Don't be afraid of colors. Actually - try to avoid full black. Just place on the canvas some crazy colors, mix them. Study color ring.
4. Do value studies. Get some b\w photos, or desaturate any, and do reference painting.
I guess that it's for now. Don't fill your head up with heavy stuff, like extra detailing, texturing etc. Just basic studies. And hard work mate, really hard.
Wow, really thanks to everyone for taking time to crit my work.
Im gonna do some more anatomy studies right now, and personaly I would love
to get to master perspective the right way, thats what my primary goal is I guess. Updates coming soon!
So I did some quick anatomy studies, Im gonna try to do some everyday like you proposed!
This is quite embarrasing, but I´ve spent 3 years in an art school about 5 years ago, but with focus on moviemaking, which I then realized was kindof stupid. So Im really glad that this site exists, so I can re-learn all those things I should´ve stuck too and developed further when I was younger.
So, Seraph Fawkes, since Im a bit noob so I was woundering if you or anyone else know of good tutorials about value studies or 1-2-3 point studies?
I did some kind of value thingy, if I understood you right
Thanks again! I´ll check out your sketchies too!
Tried out some skincoloring. The proportions of the face are way off though
Nice updates. Your guy is looking good
IMHO, the background is dark but he is bright so it creates discord. I'd want to see more contrasting shadows on his face. Does that seem right?
Keep it up!
My entry for the latest CHOW, Viking Bersker.
Some minor anatomy studies:
Random sketches and Mars, god of war:
Too little time to update, but here´s a quicky I just did at work.
Some new sketches:
No internet connection at home for a couple of weeks, but I keep practicing.
I think Im gonna move into envoirment and scenes for a while, got big inspiration from the book "Bold Visions".
Here are two of my most recent work of a series I´ve named Last Empire.
Quick 1-layer doodle:
Honestly, the backgrounds for some of your anatomy studies are too dark. I can barely see them.
Everything is better with dinosaurs.
The shadows look great, but I think you should add more highlights to really bring up the detail.
I find it helps to sketch first with a hard brush and then blend where needed, since it is generally less work to start well defined and add blending than to start blended and add definition.

Trexmaster , yeah, I usually blame my home PC-monitor for that, but I´ll keep that in mind next time I do anatomy!
Ultarant, great tip, I´ll definetly try that out!
This was the CHOW for over the holidays which I didnt finnish by then, but I think its ok now.
