Nice. I gotta get my work ethic sorted out and start working like this. I need to pump out a lot more work.
Your faces are really long
Yeah, the chins especially. Always very long. Just bring them up a bit, make the jawline flatter.
which ones? I can't see it myself
Pretty much every face you've ever drawn that wasn't from direct reference.
[QUOTE=Detlef;27588426]which ones? I can't see it myself[/QUOTE] Line is where chin should have ended [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2848674/shouldhaveended.png[/img]
nng, I hate how I draw, I can't see the mistakes myself. And I try to maintain a webcomic and learn realism and it just get mixed you know? But I'm trying, I'm trying so fucking hard because I want this so much. Alright emotional speach end.

Can't wait to see what you post next. You are fucking spectacular. There's not much I wouldn't do for skills like that.
What brushes are you using for those really square-looking studies? I like the style.
[QUOTE=ChestyMcGee;27606871]What brushes are you using for those really square-looking studies? I like the style.[/QUOTE] Not anything fancy, a rough brush that came with photoshop. One of those texture brushes I think. Also thank you Jordan0795

His name is Shia LaBeouf according to wiki... He's from the movie transformers. You picture looks a lot like him. Wiki: [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shia_LaBeouf[/url]

Haven't got much done these past days But yeah some failed attempts here gave up on this one [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/A2sgf.png[/IMG] Gave up on another one [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/1CFxg.png[/IMG] And delicous bruises [IMG]http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/026/4/a/looking_good_by_luna133-d381k9e.png[/IMG]
Mouth is way too low. The space between the lips and nose should be about 1/3 of the length between the lips and bottom of the chin.
Stuff from past few days. how the fuck do one hold a shotgun [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/N1boz.png[/IMG] quick backgrounds with cheap photoshop effects [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/swBTg.jpg[/IMG] And some headstudies with Andrew Loomis, I was gonna do more of them but the I had the biggest urge to draw a tank [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/zfotc.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/NcMEn.png[/IMG] That's it for now
I really do like those backgrounds you've made! It reads pretty good and has good sense of depth. Good head studies too, and awesome tank. Keep up the good work!
Awesome stuff. Your comic is pretty good too. Mind if I ask how did you learn to draw with photoshop? Follow some tutorials or was it more of a pick up and go thing?
I began with other programs like painter pro or something like that when I was 11 years old and moved on to open canvas a little later and finally cracked photoshop 7 ate the age of 15. So I have been messing around with digital painting for some time, but I have also checked out tutorials for tricks and stuff.

On the subject of holding a shotgun, you should google "how to properly hold a rifle". With that said the elbow of the trigger hand should be pointing downwards, not outwards, that is a common novice mistake called "chicken winging".
You make me wanna study illustration.
Gah, looking at your work really makes me want to draw something...I may post it in the "does not deserve a thread" thread.... If you think 3v3ryb0dy points out mistakes on your anatomy wait til you see what he does to mine haha
[QUOTE=Detlef;27739883]Stuff from past few days. how the fuck do one hold a shotgun [img_thumb]http://i.imgur.com/N1boz.png[/img_thumb][/QUOTE] They need to be a bit more squared up with the weapon. Your characters' bodies are almost completely parallel with the weapon, when they should be nearly perpendicular. Somebody with no training may hold their weapon like that, but anybody with any sort of combat training (police, military, etc, etc) would be almost perfectly squared when firing. It increases the stability of your shot, which reduces recoil; allows you maximum control over the weapon; and, most importantly, better protects your vital organs if you're wearing ballistic armor by putting your plate forward. Somebody standing sideways would just be shot in the side, where there is no armor. As for the weapon itself, you don't socket them in your shoulder, but rather in the hollow area of your upper chest, somewhat between and below the shoulder and collarbone. Hold your arm out like you're grasping a weapon and feel that area of your chest and you'll feel exactly where the weapon is supposed to rest. Don't get me wrong, they're well drawn, I'm just trying to help out with proper form.
