T-Rex: a comic one :P

on: March 08, 2006, 02:37:34 pm


i started this to be a comic like character, so it's not like a real T-Rex, neither in form or proportions :P

But i have a lot of fun doing it :)

I apreciate any C+C

Jeje its a good work :)

I like the forms and color, but i think the sense is a little "dirty". Try to make a texture for the skin.

I really like the colouring on this. Nice and scaly looking. I think the 'dirtiness' that Matriax mentioned gives a more natural texture to the skin.
There are a few things you might want to look at though, like the fact that the foot farthest from us looks to be on backwards (the big toe seems to be on the outside edge). The arms too, I think, are a bit high up, kind of coming out of his neck, and on the arm closest to us, the thumb looks to be almost coming out of the elbow.
Otherwise, nice work, I think it's a great piece. there's something about the colouring I really like :)

 Anatomy isn't that important for a comic style. Make sure you vary hues in the shades. Make the highlights appear more yellow and darker shades more blueish for example. Your colors are pretty much dull or boring no offense. Vary the hues will make it better.

I like the shades and texture and colors just like they are. And even though the anatomy is all out of whack, there's something I like about that, too. It's like he's made of modeling clay or something. I think the lack of colorful "blue and yellow" hues adds to that feeling.

Tremulant said everything I would have about the anatomy, so I won't double that, but like I said--there's something enjoyable about his wobbly, disproportionate, gingerbread-cookie-gone-wrong look.

This would be outstanding in a game with other similarly styled characters and backgrounds. I'd love to see your take on a cave man.

Thanks for the feedback guys!

Yeah, I'm aware of the anatomy issues, but as i said, this is mainly a comic character, in which i did a little of experiment with the shading.

I just wanted to draw a T-Rex that i have in my mind, rather than do it with a real reference.

And I'm consider to do more character like this, garsh. Stay tuned ;)
