you could try making a super basic mock up render in your 3d software of choice, its a pretty slab sided shape and it would help seeing the lights
yeah i thought about that but that almost seems like cheating i [I]want [/I]to learn to visualise how its lit without the 3d software telling me oh well, i'll finish this the best i can and move on to something else
[IMG]http://i.cubeupload.com/erjAGI.png[/IMG] Working on this, got the proportions pretty decent I'd say this time. 3rd try on designing a soldier from scratch, photoshop used only with mouse. C&C, I could really use this please.
Mount and blade outfit!
Yeah it's inspired on my own cRPG Character.
Funny, I recently started playing cRPG too.
Sweet, I added you on steam quickly if you don't mind we could talk there instead of going all off topic. :v:

His grip on the gun is a bit weird too although I know how hard drawing hands holding something is. The explosion is nice though.
going to call this done [thumb]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/17721670/DRAWINGS/jug2.jpg[/thumb] crit is welcome if anyone has any [editline]poop[/editline] [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/17721670/DRAWINGS/jug3.jpg[/img] i changed the neck area a bit but can't really be bothered to change the colours so its dunzo
I like it a lot. But the shadows aren't really shadows, they add on eachother and doesn't really act like shadows, the colour of the shadows is too much of the same hue as the base colour. The horns are very bulgy and look unfinished and un-rendered.
thanks i really need to study how casting of shadows works and how to apply it with perspective. anyone got any books on that?
Nah, but for the hue there is always the good old [url=http://www.itchstudios.com/psg/art_tut.htm#shadows]PSG Art Tutorial[/url]
also that skin tone is pretty strong
[QUOTE=Xephio;35526361][t]http://i.imgur.com/sCrHL.jpg[/t] that feel when you waste days on something knowing it was shit from the start ):[/QUOTE]I actually think the sky is quite nice.
[QUOTE=D3TBS;35543864]also that skin tone is pretty strong[/QUOTE] its a character from Dota 2, the juggernaut, and he has bright yellow-orange skin. unless you know that and are still saying its too strong?
Ah no, I didn't know that
[QUOTE=Barnhouse;35543956]its a character from Dota 2, the juggernaut, and he has bright yellow-orange skin. unless you know that and are still saying its too strong?[/QUOTE] Regardless of the reference, it's still too strong in a compositional sense. As an artist you are not only allowed to take artistic licence but, in some cases, I think you are almost required to take artistic licence. Here the artist needs to step back and look at how that bright orange affects the composition. I think the orange needs toning down. Maybe have something cast shadow onto it or something. In any case, at the moment it pulls the eye down from the face far too much.
interesting point, didnt think about that when painting it but i agree

I bring in this example again (it uses textures and whatnot as well but it's still relevant); [IMG]http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/010/c/c/Of_great_age_by_DanilLovesFood.jpg[/IMG] [URL="http://danillovesfood.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2ha86w"]'Commission: Of Great Age'[/URL] by [URL="http://danillovesfood.deviantart.com/"]~DanilLovesFood[/URL] Barnhouse's image looks, to me, very acrylic or oil-like. The smaller strokes are used to give the mask texture - I think the small strokes really help to sell the bone-like surface.
My animey is clearly too kawaii for criticism. *blush* Oh yeah, now it's a new page. Goddamn you... somethingoranother.

Yeah you did [QUOTE=Jessey;35540832] 3rd try on designing a soldier from scratch[/QUOTE] But now that I see what you're actually aiming for, I guess I take back my advice, you don't need to do much work to draw to that standard
Meh maybe I just write confusing shit then, I can do that quite good sometimes.
More paintings in watercolor.
