Feron, even though it's been said before, i thought i should agree that your heads seem quite small. The pose in the newest update seems rather awkward, what are you trying to convey? It kinda seems like you're drawing the figure as you go along the body (Eg. starting at the head), rather than sketching out a simple guide first. It is probably best to get the body proportions and the figure's pose fixed before you go onto muscle shapes etc.

I would recommend to stay away from muscles until you have the basic human proportion down.

Stick figures! With ovals for heads, rectangles for bodies, tiny circles for hands, just basic shapes.

quick MSPaint sketch of a soldier:



Cadet infantry of the Legio VI Cirsica, they serve as support troops to the seasoned line infantry, guarding artillery, relieving wearied units, etcetera.  Also known as "red-bellies" by the (white-clad) legionaries not just because of their tunic, but because of their tendency to fall wounded.

The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

The very first level...fun times...yep!

And then another level...fun times...yeppers!



And here are some cards w/o all the texty stuff they should have.

If anybody is interested in drawing some art for the cards in our game, please PM me. We absolutely must compensate you, but we absolutely can not afford much. It's pretty much just a fun thing to do that'll get your art in a game and some change in your pocket. Plus it'll help me out, because I don't have the time to draw all of these cards, but would like to maintain the integrity and quality of the game throughout. Right now we're just pasting in-game images onto most of the cards and IMO it's pretty awful.

You can check out the game here
It's in very early beta and is due for a massive update within the next month, most likely less.

Doppleganger, that's a lot of fun.

A little hard too. Makes you actually time attacks so you can fit in blocks.  :y:
