[WIP] Honorable Judge Bush

on: April 18, 2007, 07:36:39 pm


I'm stuck with his body, but I'm still going to try.  :mean:
I didn't make the bearded judge, by the way, for those who are unfamiliar to Phoenix Wright.

you have the reference and the pixel image side by side yet you cannot see how far the likeness is? The elements aren't on the same heights even.

I don't know, that's why I'm posting it here.

Are you going to whip out the "Go back and learn the fundamentals" card on me again? :(

it's not that, all you have to do is take the reference picture and use it if you're going to use it. what helm meant is that if you line up the mouth, nose, eyes, etc. they don't match the ref. can't you see it? overlay the ref with yours.

This might help. The red lines are aligned to the original image. Compare that to the head you made.

I know you are trying to mimic the style, but you should also try to more accurately copy the shapes and proportions in the original picture. And that's about all the critique I can give you at this point.

Well he said He didn't make the bearded judge, which sort of implies he didn't make the rest. (at least that's how I would understand it)
Anyways: it seems your head seems much more messier than your reference, so if you want to keep the style I would suggest trying to keep it simple and cleaning it up.

Right, I get it now, I'm working on likeness with that thingy Stitchy made. Which pretty much made me realize what you guys were talking about, and made me feel pretty dumb. :o  I didn't make the background, either, it's from Gyakutan Saiban 4 (I think it's spelled like that) But I was pretty sure it didn't look like I did anyway. I'm also working on making some of the details more simplified.
Edit: Gyakuten Saiban 4?

You should make your own body, or something, man. Please rethink sticking three things together like that. Using reference is one thing, only actually making 1/3 or less of the art in a piece is in bad taste. Or just lazy.
