WWII Pin Up Girl

on: July 22, 2017, 02:05:30 pm
Hello all,

I'm Dylan aka HOWZ1T, new to pixelation and happy to be here!
I've been working on my first attempt at doing a pixel human, specifically a mostly sfw WWII styled pin up girl.
I used Jimi's "Pin-up poster WWII" as a reference image and image study. Link: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/2q06e



Looking forward to hearing your feedback!

Many thanks,
Dylan

P.S. check me out on artstation, got some other pixel art posted there! :p Link: https://www.artstation.com/artist/howz1t

this is a super quick analysis, but its immediately obvious that proportions and angles are off.



The red lines are there to emphasis certain angles that are off. The blue lines are to show proportion. The blue lines on each image are about the same length, mainly to show your hips are too narrow. The torso is too long and straight. I think you should disregard detail and shading until you can block in the drawing more accurately. Focus just on the proportions, and the gesture, just using solid areas of color. This way you don't waste time detailing things you'll need to end up fixing later.

Thanks, I totally agree that the anatomy needs some work. Might give it another crack this weekend.
