Fable Hobbe (WIP) Working Again

on: December 11, 2008, 12:39:13 am
Oldest Finished
I think I just want to do a upper body portrait, or should I do the whole thing? Either way, I need criticism.
Oh, the Ref. http://img839.imageshack.us/content_round.php?page=done&l=img839/2028/hobbe.jpg&via=mupload

Not much to critique on, maybe make the pose a bit more interesting than just a typical front view. Work some more on it first.

Once again not much to critique on, only thing I can critique on once again are the lines, which not much has changed, you should attempt to make it more of an actiony pose, like:

What you need to do mainly though is attempt some work on this, i.e. coloring it, etc. until you do that once again I stress, I won't be able to help you that much. Its looking good so far, from what I see, so keep with it.

Very cool.  How about more dramatic shading?

I like the shading! Very simpel but yet very effective in a dramatic way as you said. Awesome.

Part of the issue here appears to be that you are shading every part independently rather than shading the whole image, which leads me to believe that you do not have the volumes involved firmly in mind. It might not be a bad idea to break this image down into three-dimensional shapes and do a 4-value gray scale study of just the volumes, then transfer what you find there back onto the image you are working on now, and then start coloring from there.

Overall i think the head-on pose that you have chosen is working against you because the volumes are hard to make out. I, for one, am not familiar with the character and so have no idea what the volumes might be, and have a hard time judging from your image.

I think dramatic sharp shadows are going to be the best thing for this, given the plain pose.
