Thank you for the detailed critique! I didn't spend enough time on the Ideation phase, doing small drawings and focusing on design, and now I'm trying to keep together a falling house. I think it's best if I go back and start the process all over again. It would be good practice.
Looking at the assignments of other students I realized there was an opportunity to study their work and try to do better with mine. I went ahead and redesigned the whole team, and I think I learned a lot from the amazing works posted here! This is the Leader, with massive HP and immune to Ambush. I'll share the rest of the team in this post to avoid spamming the chat.
I've gone through another round of Ideation and I come up with a theme I'm fond of, a family of monsters running a horror farm. I have other two archetypes but they need more work, probably more Ideation time. If I can't make it for this assignment I'll add them to the line up during the next one!
Hello Irshad! Do you still practice regularly some of the exercises taught in the DaB curriculum? And yeah, what are your opinions on the notion of a "dream job"? Thank you, you are a great teacher.
Hi everyone! I have returned to drawing recently and I have started digital drawing recently. I am still trying to get used to the tablet and the digital aspect of it, so I thought this exercise would be the perfect start! Starting from the Concept of Cacti, then arrived at Cacti Killer as I did some doodles and then landed on the concept of Cacti Kaiju, since in June there is this challenge to draw one Kaiju monster for every day of the month (Kaijune). I feel like I stayed too safe by keeping close to the shape of sea creatures and cacti in general and not going big enough!
Asked for help
I followed the advice in the intro video for Character Design Monster Lab. I ended up with Nash, the cowboy who was trampled to death by cows and then resurrected against his will by his demonic horse. I'm mainly looking for advice on how I could make the design more interesting (shapes, elements I could add/change, etc). While drawing this, I had some trouble getting the upper half of the leg to clearly look like there's just a pole in there and not an actual leg (it got taken out by the cows). I also realized that I'd eventually have to add texture (denim, leather, cotton) and I don't really know how to do that so if anyone has any advice that'd be great. Lastly, is it clear that the horse is a horse with a dog mouth and not a weird looking horse?
Here's my homework for this weeks assignment. I found it good putting all my thoughts down on paper and practising my silhouettes and shadow shapes. However, I found myself rushing and not thinking about my designs for the last few thumbnails. Does anyone have tips or advice on how to avoid this, and any critique is welcome.
I have added new guys to a Patrol Field crew. Guess it's time now to kill some darling and decide which one should go on with more studies. If I have to choose only one, I think I would go on with the scorpio grape, seems like something that could bring nice shapes to the table.
