Default Hidro's sketch thread. *updated 24th june*

i have/had and old thread somewhere, but due to lack of posting on my part and the number of diffrent other artist with there own sketch threads im sure its lost in the sea of new topics.

so heres a new one.

starting with some recent work, this is something i did with flashies over O.C
the top left is flashies, the bottom right is me. (btw *_*flashies*_* was busy for alot of the session but was kind enough to leave his server open so i could keep working on it )

Spoiler:


*edit* added the first and second page from my (new) web comic ( i am still trying to find a good host for it) be warned though not much happens in the first pages.

Spoiler:

Can two different people draw at the same time with OC? O_o
That's pretty cool!

The sketch is dope, you should resize it though, it looks big on a really high resolution.
I really like the design on his armor, kinda wished the shield was a bit more uh further away from his shoulder (damn my explanation in english sucks). Or some shading wouldn't make it so flat\stuck to his body.

More!

Big sketch. :O But I like the armor on the guy- but try to work on it some more. Add some shading and light to it.

For the comic- try working on the human anatomy. Some of their bodies look awkward and unbalanced. Also I think this would be better in the comic forum. ^^; So they can give you tips on how to work on the panels and lettering.

I really like the looseness of your style.

I think the comic is cool how it is, you are using a mac to make it right? Maybe tighten up the layouts a little, make it look like there is less white space.

Wow that portrait is great for your first time nice strong use of color

i'd like to recommend not using your outlines, because it flattens the portrait out a great deal! use hard edges instead, to define the outside of the mouth and the nose (otherwise, you look like you're wearing lip liner!!)

Just an overall crit, when doing realism (if thats what you're going for) try to keep the outlining to a minimum, cause it flattens it out a lot when over used (for example, her arms)


as a specific crit, her glasses are bending strangely, and i think you should smooth out those hard reflection lines so it looks more like plastic (or glass)

Edit: I just realized i repeated myself from my critique on your self portrait haha, but you ARE heading in the right direction, less outlines, more shading definition

Default OMG new art?!

i've been getting back into drawing again after i have forsworn the evil world of warcraft and spend more and more time sketching.

these are sorta like work out peices, to get myself back into the swing of things.

Angelic rain of bullets. going to work on it a bit more, im not happy with the lag bent behind her, her arm closest to us and her face/head positon. was still enjoyable to make.

Spoiler:



this one is a pic for my brothers band, they want a steam punk feel to it, so i tried to incorpirate it into the pic. my brother plays keyboard, bass gitaur and chello.

Spoiler:


another one, same concept, working the steam punk look.

I think you drew her torso a bit too long - that's a really tough looking pose. I think her right foot is a bit small in your version - that is I think it's about the same size as the original while the rest of her is not.

HTH, you did a pretty good job on a difficult pose, and got some good shading happening.
