Just some quick help please

on: January 15, 2007, 09:28:48 pm
So I made this for a game:

I think the pants came out decently and the rest is a bit less decently. Any tips on what I could do to fix this? Or any tips on what I could do to avoid making the same mistakes?

That's the first thing I thought. His leg was weird. I like the rest though. His left hand is in a weird spot...

somehow 'no...' just doesn't convey my feelings towards this comment enough.

anyway, there are some inconsistancies with this piece. His arms seem to be different widths. his hands are mittens, the collar of his shirt looks unnatural, his waist seems too high, his feet are pretty big, his legs look much too beefy, and other than the hair, which is acceptable, the rest of the palette could use some work.

I'd say drop a layer over the drawing you have now (if your software does that sort of thing) and redline the basic shapes of his pose and structure, then refine refine refine. compare it to photos of people in poses like this, anatomically correct drawings, etc. and once you feel confident with it, start to recolor.

This crit is more geared toward the "Or any tips on what I could do to avoid making the same mistakes?" area.

I thought it was a girl...what, with the tight pants, light purple shirt and volumetric, sheeny hair. Aside from the flatchestedness, it totally comes off as a girl to me. the hips even seem kinda wide.

And it's hand does seem to be in an...odd place.

I just thought they were someone who fought by impersonating Micheal Jackson :-\.

The brokenness on his left leg is from it curving back, which your leg won't naturally do.
And on the right leg, the thing I forgot the name of's shape is too well defined, even for tight pants.
Oh yes naked women are beautiful
But I like shrimps more haha ;)

Yeah, looking now he does seem to be suffering from Zombie leg. The hands were causing me too much trouble so I did give up and mitten them. I think everything but the shoes have bad colours. I already started moving his hand, Sherman Gill is probably the 5th person to make a Michael Jackson comment.

Sherman Gill, are you talking about the back of the leg muscle? the one behind the knee?

Ok, so I'm going to take Stwelin's good advice and trace over it in Gale.

Thank you, I hope I don't let you guys down.
