The piece itself has gone far since the last post. I can post the process so far in steps, animated in .gif form, if anyone's interested.
I love process animations. I am interested.
I make actual NES games. Thus, I'm the unofficial forum dealer of too much information about the NES

Here's the latest of the latest-



Im not even started on her breathing mask apparatus, needed for the harsh environments that abound in the context of the story. Not to mention any and all steampunk devices I can fit there.  :D


I think I'll post the process .gif later on, once this starts to look finished, or I get tired of it. Better to give you guys the complete steps, rather than only showing the first half of the process.

Picked up the pencil again. The quality of my lines, proportions and rhythms varies and swings as heavy as my mood. Nothing I can do except accepting that.  :)

Don't mind your work changing with your mood. Expression is what the game is about.

What are your goals in terms of being able draw the human form? you may have talked about it earlier in the thread. I've seen you do a lot of this gestural and proportional work which is great, but I can't help but wonder if it's time to settle down and just commit 10-20 hours on a well modeled and rendered figure for you to understand the more subtle things, and increase your skill set in a different way.

Of course, at the hardcore art studios, the suggestion is usually flipped. People that do that kind of work need to do more of what you are doing here.

The ultimate goal, which I have come to believe will be a life long journey, is to be able to draw any expression of the human body in any angle without relying on a reference.

I am following Stan Prokopenkos (proko.com) figure drawing tutorials. He says the gesture is the most important thing to study at first and after a lot of frustrating personal experience at trying to draw the human figure without gesture by just making slow and stiff constructions or copies out of thin air, I completely agree with the gesture being the most important thing.

Without the skill of getting the gesture right it is difficult to make a slow study where the individual pieces do not fall apart. The gesture is what ties them together creating a believable expression of the body where everything is just in the place where it belongs and where it feels right.

I am not capable of getting the gesture and the proportions right yet (I feel I am getting closer), so I first need to train that skill before I can move on to constructing simple volumes around the gesture which will be the next step.

Once again, hello everyone.

I was just wondering if this looked allright?

She has pretty broad shoulders for a lady in comparison with the hips. Could be right, but I'm not sure.

Legs seem fine in general, might take a look at the tibia.
If I take a look at my own leg, it seems it doesn't go down straight from the knee but bends a little outwards.

Pose isn't very dynamic, but I guess that's a choice. I wouldn't stand like that comfortably irl, but I'm not a lady and I don't really know the context.

I guess she will be clothed later?
