[WIP] Watch your back

on: February 12, 2007, 03:02:08 am
Very early, just roughed and started pixelling face.

Not happy with proportions so any feedback would be tops. Hands will be shrunk some when pixelled, was originally going to be less human.

2^4 - 4 colours.

I'm loving it man so far. Since this is an early piece I can't crit it much except the starting shading on the left arm looks a bit funky to me. Good Job so far tho.

Could definetely benefit from some AA.

Looks like something out of Sals' head.
And I am finally seeing that you were the one worth eating.

Looking quite nice so far, polish, polish is all I can say.

And indeed, it DID remind me of this one by Adam instantly, more or less just a similar pose and stuff on the back.

THOSE LEGS....THEY CONFUSE AND BOGGLE THE MIND!

Ok, so you see where they intersect? The front and back legs have the same values, so it looks like the feet could belong to either leg. It also doesn't help that the one leg's pant ends just where the other leg's knee should be, so it could seriously be misinterpreted.
Like it is by me.
I can see 2 positions for each leg.

not only the leg issue that was mentioned in the above post, but his arms and hands are way out of proportion.  his arms are the same size as his legs, and his hands are bigger then his head.

Well, Considering this is an origonal.....Thing?.by Surt, it doesn't really seem that he would be confined by normal human proportions....

Looking awesome, not much to crit on right now, But I am indeed tired..so We'll see in the morning :-[

GOODNIGHTdestroyer and ptoing: Quite unintentional but could well be subconscious influence there, pose is essentially the same except that the arms are in the flipped position.

PS: Your sig quote is originally from Friedrich Nietzsche ;)
Not quite, one letter different, from Aeon Flux (series not movie).

Xion Night: Yes, hopefully that is no longer a problem.

eck: Hopefully fixed now.

Reluctantly cracked open my crappy anat book to rework proportions, thinned arms, adjusted legs and shrunk head. Still not quite satisfied, and head looks a little large yet.
Added a couple of intermediary skin tones.
Much of the base pixelling done, just got to finish pixelling rear limbs, hair, hump and tentacles, then detailing/AA pass.


2^4 - 2 colours.

I think your colours are to dark.
Add less/more detail to the face.
If you know what I mean.

In my opinion, there's no problem at all with the dark shades. Just see to that they don't flow together too much :]

Anyways, I think the outstretched hand has problems, I mean, it looks stiff in an unnatural way, can't really explain it. :\ So yeah, it's like my only gripe with the piece, cause I love everything about it :]]
