WIP: Rock Giant, crits greatly apreciated. (Updated V.02)
I'm slowly becoming more comfortable with colors and I must say I'm having great fun with it. I participated in the UK vs Scandinavia thunderdome as well as the male pinup calendar and learned a lot even though I couldn't spend the time I wanted on them, I think it's time to really push a piece until I feel it's finished so I'll keep posting WIP's and hopefully with your help I'll learn a lot. Any tips, hints, corrections or paint-overs are greatly appreciated, thats why I'm posting here.
Anyhow, enough blabbering, heres the piece as it looks now: My main worries right now are the perspective and foreshortening on the legs of the giant and I'd greatly appreciate some feedback on weather it works or not before I start fleshing out the shapes and values. Any other crits or thoughts are of course welcome as well.
love that robot! I relly like the concept.
maybe is not working so good because of the canvas proportions and the perspective youīre using.
Seems that youīre standing on a tower sketching on top of it, and this is not helping to understand to a watcher that the robot he is seeing is huuuuge.
you should lower your horizon line, to get a more "on the ground" perspective to value the height of the robot.
Iīve made a paint over to explain better what iīm trying to say.
Thereīs something about that bridge, the road and the river that I want to comment.
The river looks too straight; like itīs been canalized. Maybe you could change itīs course and make it more "natural-looking" and also use it to guide the look of the people through the land of your picture.
The four lampposts of the bridge are looking a little out of place in the middle of no-where. I mean, looks like thatīs the only ilumination of the whole place, so I would get rid of them or on the contrary make more so all the road could be iluminated.
I also think that you need something in the lower left hand of the canvas to dialogate with your robot. I donīt know what; a city, a fair, a group of trees, a group of something, a lake... to fill that void.
hope it could be helpful
i really like the new angle, though i think you could have done it the other way too. by changing the angle of the landscape to fit the robot. would make for a really neat perspective.
I really like upward angle the clouds are going in, very surreal.
I was also thinking that having someone in the very bottom left would make the monster seem all that much more large.
well i cant really explain it well. not very good at perspective drawing quite yet.
