Oooh, carving! Also, that mantis looks pretty cool!
Facefest! I'd like to push a bit further the variation and exaggeration, but it isn't that easy... I feel my expressions could be a bit livelier, too. I guess I'll annoy you guys with my progress with this...
What I like about Soff's faces most is the variety of angles that the faces are drawn from. I know, I know it's not EVERY POSSIBLE angle, but it sure is a heck of a lot angles than I usually do (3), so huzzah.
Empiremaker: Woodcarving: Is it easier or harder than drawing?
I don't know about anyone here, but I haven't posted (read: haven't done) any latest and greatest stuff so here's a height chart I recently made for my characters. It's not the best thing I've done ever, and it's not really a sketch, but it was both fun and useful, so if it can be inspiring to you others who have a bunch of different characters and subjective heights, so that this will have meant something. XP
Oooh, nice! You added the characters that weren't there yet when I went through your development wiki . I really like the lineup. There's a really nice character variety! I love doing lineups, even if I don't get to finish them.
I really admire that you can come up with a story and put it together that fast, Zam. You're doing a nice job. I like that you don't shy away from backgrounds and that stuff!
I'm playing with the idea of making some profile picture for my comic's guys. I'm already doubting really hard the first one (the perspective is, according to my brother "unflattering" and I can't unsee it now. I just can't figure out his arms) Still, I've challenged myself to finish this stuff for once! So let's see how that works...
This is what happens every time I try to do a lineup. I enjoy playing with bodytypes and all that, but when it comes to... dress people up and define them better I get lost. I still like this lineup I did some time ago, too. Who knows... maybe someday I'll actually finish some of this stuff...
/yay, soff is taking up all of the art threads again . D:!
I've been doing similar noses lately, but for me the guys have more rectangle ones usually and the girls have more tear-drop ones usually. I have always loved that kind of stylistic nose. Those are looking good.
By all means Soff. Feel free to kidnap the art threads. : )
As for line-ups, I've heard that drawing the silhouettes of characters and working to make each look identifiable can really help create new characters! But as this is not the critique thread, line-ups in themselves are always good to practice for working out characters' designs and references.
so this um.... this is an image that started out as a sketch and kinda took on a life of itss own (it's based off a convo I had on facebook) about people asking for cheap costumes and for makers to come to them... the rat is an admin of said group, and the rule is you go to the makers not they go to you in general....
anyway it's here because it's not a greatest, just latest.
