Thought Id give it a go and show u this.. My first serious drawing in my life :) .I drew it with a tablet.
Those who know Constantine HellBlazer should recognize something :)
Critics and tips would be appreciated. thx ^^


Well I fixed the hand and arm, but i didnt do anything about the muscles cause they wont be visible under the clothes.
I did a cloth sketch but didnt do any wrinkles, cause I dont really understand them yet. Any help would be appreciated.
The wind is blowing from the left, and its kinda hard to visualise how the pants will be flowing in the wind.. Help with that would be appreciated too. Thx

Oh and I drew the colar and the tie over the hand for the sake of clarity... I will erase it later.

Update *No2 Shirt crease update

Update *No3! Clothes finished (except shoes)

Update *Finished. Detailed

pretty good but the hands seem small. also i do not like the way the thigh goes into the crotch area...looks odd. his left arm shoulder...you place a third muscle above the bicep...you overdid the deltoid. i am just now studying anatomy but i am sure that is wrong...best get another opinion though just to make sure. the abs...most people do not have all four abs that high up...the fourth set is long and goes into the crotch area. normally not visible unless very well developed. also his right shoulder position is awky. hope all this helps.

Id like to know any good sites wich are explaining how to draw wrinkles on the clothes.
And Id like some C&C about this pic.

The Polykarbon site has a good clothing tutorial.

chain2threechick: You think arms too short? Hmz, try standing up and hold your arm normally held down, hand in a fist, it would be in the same height... atleast it works for me.
eightate8: Yes, I saw it. Ill try to make the wrinkles today, and update this thread with what I got.
dt45: Im leaving the face last cause im planning it to be almost in the dark... Cause he will be standing near some dark corner. Only the chin and cigarette's light end will be a tad visible :).

hmmm the old obscure the face trick, bad idea. Okay so you just joined so I guess you havn't heard this a million times but you have to practice to get better, leaving the face in the dark won't help you. Faces are hard you have to work on them more than the easy things. Anyone with a second of experience is going to see through the veil of darkness you use to conceal the face and see the lack of skill. You did spend the time to draw a body and then put the clothes on top so kudos for that, but seriously even if it looks bad draw a face on there and then if you really want obscure it but draw it first.

i am sure a few already know this site but the clothing tuts are very good. also if the wind was blowing the wrinkles would be soft and subtle...going with the wind.

.. hmm..the fold seems not that realistic.the necktie is a bit dull but i like the way you put good muscles^^ kip it up thats all!

eightate8: yea youre probably right, well, Ill try to draw the face and if it is too bad then ill obscure it... I tried to draw a face before, but bigger then this, it was more like a practise run with the new tablet:

Thx Battousai Ill look up those tuts.
tiyo konching: its just a basic outline of the clothes, just to get the idea how it all looks. Ill try draw the wrinkles today.

Soro for double post :). Updated with clothes, creases.
Hm i thought I had overdone the creases a bit, but I lowered the opacity and I personally think they look great :D.

C&C appreciated thx.

HellBlazer, a good guideline for arm length is that the wrist is parallel to the base of the crotch. And that both segments of the arm are equal - to the wrist, not the tip of the fingers.
I would say more, but I need to go do some things.
Keep working at it.

Finished! :dance: C&C pls! :bunny:
I will probably color it on Sunday or Monday, cause I will be away.
