My Hands, but without Leona Lewis.

on: April 11, 2021, 12:50:49 pm
Hello. Sorry for my English. I'm Italian. It is the first time that I try to draw a human body "decently", but at a certain point I find myself stuck with the usual cursed and famous element. The hands. I just can't seem to like her. Isn't there anyone who wants to give me some advice?

Can't tell exactly what you're going for here, but I did some tweaking:



Pixelation has a feature where you can zoom in on an image when you click on it. Shift+click zooms out, Alt+click resets the size.
So if you post your image with the actual size, it's easy for everybody to see the details, and easier for people to paint over without having to downscale it first.

A little bit more:





I guess your original has more of a feeling of a light coming from behind him... I don't think I can represent the body fully if the "edges" of the figure are lost like that.

My post is quite old and in the end my result was this:



Yours, however, is clearly superior. I have a long way to go to improve.

I'm not so sure about it being clearly superior, yours look great!

Thank you very much. Aniway I made one last change. I think it's more understandable now. It actually didn't make sense to paint every muscle in black and let the abs be white. That way it looks better, and the bibs look like ... Well, bibs.
