lately I haven’t been drawing as much as I want to, but still, the papers pile up! Here is a big mess of mannequinisation, half finished sketches and even a couple of finished ones:) Some drawn from photo references, some from a mannequin doll and some from imagination. General tips are most welcome!
I should of course have made a quick sketch first, but what started as an anatomy study, soon took on a life of its own. There are many issues here, but what bugs me the most is the “rendering” of the flames and the figures head that seems a bit small and poorly constructed. Also, the skulls are of varying size, some are floating in mid air, the chains could have been a bit twisted to make it more interesting, etc. This whole thing turned political at some point, and if I step on someone’s toes, that’s just too bad. Get over it, it’s only art! 😂 The man is a symbol of USA. Burning up from the corona virus, trying to break free from racism and conservative Christianity. C&C are most welcome!
I got inspired by a photo of Anthony, and ended up with a barbarian. I tried to rough him up, to make him look dirty, like he is straight from the fight. I didn’t even bother to finish the tighs, as I don’t know the anatomy of the legs yet. I really struggled with his left hand, and it ended up very different than the photo. Critiques and comments are most welcome!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuJOrtJU9Zs This is the kind of videos that really inspires me to draw. I think Jim Lee is awsome! It seems to me that there is not a lot of comic fans in this community. Am I right? What do you guys think of some action packed comic art? Do you see it as "less valuable" than fine art? Or "same thing, just a different style"? I'm still a beginner, but are there anyone better at drawing the figure in any (often extreme) pose seen from any (often extreme) angle than comic book artists? And everything done from imagination.
