[C+C] Need to spruce up this rebar-wielding thug

on: September 29, 2016, 11:48:57 am
Hey folks,

So I'm trying to come up with some sort of thug character swinging a piece of rebar with a concrete chunk :P I'm not sure I love the colours and the whole character looks a little... wobbly to me, if that makes any sense. I'm looking for any tips, pointer or edits that might help me understand where I'm going wrong :) Thanks guys!

Give him a slight hunch away from the bar and crouch him a bit to give the rebar a weightier look, like he's struggling to drag it. That's what i'd do!

If he's letting it drag across the ground it would be farther back from him, his left arm stretched farther back to pull it.

Also, your dark background melts into the dark clothing colors too much on my monitor. Something to consider if you want to be able to read the character.

Where was he right before this snapshot in time and where will he be right after?
