Ninja

on: March 30, 2016, 06:50:52 pm
Hey guys  ;D

So I saw tsej's thread and I was inspired to do something of the sort.

I chose going for a ninja though, not a samurai.

And here are the result and progress:



I'm going to change the pose, because I didn't use a ref for it, it was what I had in mind but it is weird or at least the way he holds the sword.
So I'm going to play with the poses and upload an update probably tomorrow.

But any feedback regarding anything from colors to anatomy to idk what is obviously welcome!


UPDATES:

Sword-arm looks a bit noodly, try to straighten out the elbow area.

So I changed the pose, I think it is better and more logical but I can't get the hand rendered correctly...





Any ideas?

Looks fine to me, maybe extend it one pixel along the bottom of the sleeve on the further-back arm.
Hands at this scale are usually just nondescript squares.

I've got these 3 versions, tried to do something with stomach area so it won't look so empty:


Update:

Was torn between 2 and 3 so:

Also fixed the sword and long neck :D

He is holding the sword backwards, with the edge facing the wrong direction :)

I think his point is, why would a sword fighter ever hold a sword with the edge facing his body, away from the opponent? I think he's correct that all sword poses across all martial arts hold the edge towards the enemy, so this one would be incorrect.
