hey, that link takes me to "login" screen, no picture for me, I assume thats what everyone else is seeing as well. You must have the image set up wrong or something? If not then its only me, maybe somebody else can let us know.
Uh! Can't hotlink to an attachment on CGtalk.
Have to upload somewhere.
I use photobucket, I think the majority of people here use that, I notice thats what most people advise. But whatever, let me see that pic lol
interesting use of middle east/ asia minor culture props, but what about his goods? when i think about the idea of a "merchant" the interesting thing about it is all the strange stuff they are carrying abound to sell... now that youve got that character and the transportation, think about how much and what stuff he is carrying about and what kind of cart he might carry it in/on if there's alot. Think of the old peddler's kiosk in Willy wonka if you saw it **yeah they might be in that saddle bag, but whats that small, and is it interesting if it's stowed away? maybe theres a way to make items the are stowed away more interesting than if theyre shown?**
nice painting so far. can't wait to see it finished
i pretty like your painting jo b but you should fix the anatomy of the beast, it don't seem to be able to stand on such legs :yawns:
I'm a manky artist, don't mess with me
A cart. I like that idea, hadn't thought of it. Stay tuned.
The animal looks a bit like it's going to fall over. In other words, it looks unstable, try to separate the legs a bit more, and put the feet on the same level, and it will look better ...I think.
I liek it so far. My only crit is the creature. I feel it needs thicker legs or another pair in the back, especially if he's expected to caryy anyone/thing.
Other than that, the guy doesn't seem to fit in... he stands out, he's too white. :p
The creature's head looks very nice indeed. But it does look off-balance, as a whole. If you take its right leg and move it out a ways, it should look more stable. Though you need to work on your musculature/bone structure of the lower legs. They look mangled as it is.
I'm not a shut-in, honest. I just don't have a car.
Here's acloser view of the head.
