[WIP] Saturos Redux

on: July 27, 2007, 02:19:39 pm
One of the villains from Golden Sun for the GBA. This piece is a revisit of a piece I did over a year ago. I would normally wait until after I'm done before requesting comments and criticisms, but I'm too stubborn to change art after I've declared it finished.

I'm mostly concerned about the arms. I have never really learned anything about how to draw the human anatomy beyond the rules of thumb for the male facial structure, so some it might look a little wonky. Also, I haven't decided how I want to do the cape yet, nor what I want to do with the background.

There seems to be some problems with anatomy. His arms are way too short! I also think his upper body is too short.

I really like the face, but it does not look like your reference. I also like the overall coloring!

Keep it up!

Well, keeping the face the same wasn't really my intention. I'm more so trying to stay true to the character itself than the actual art style.

I guess I do see that the torso is a little short (and thus the arms as well). I'll get on that.

Made him a fair bit taller, and extended the length of his arms. Getting closed to finished, I think (aside from the cape and background). Any last minute niggles at this point would be swell.

Edited the original in photoshop. First of all, smaller head. The human male adult body is about 7 heads tall + head head.



study anatomy earnestly.
