Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I suppose I've got enough drawings and sketches up here to start one of these. Anything is up for critiques, as it's been a while without any feedback, so there's probably quite a bit of fundamental work I'm ignoring (notably proportion). Paintings in the spoiler tags can't exactly be reworked as they're a few thousand miles away, but if you've got feedback for those, I would appreciate it nonetheless.
Starting with the rougher stuff:
I'm not sure I'm getting the forshadowing down on the pinky, though I've looked at my own hand long enough that even in the real thing it started looking like a weird-shaped stump, which freaked me out enough to figure it was time to take a break from it.
This was the only usable sketch of the elementary-school kids I'm working with here in Spain; I think it will probably end up helping me that the kids move around so much (getting gesture and such down a bit quicker), though I'm not fast enough yet. And I still haven't got the hang of kids' faces. If I get any examples, I'll post them.
After enough time drawing kids, I decided to move to something a bit more...stable. Well, it was more stable until the kids started wondering what I was doing (*Pick up keychain* "¿Este estás pintando?" *Hangs head in frustration* "Well, I was...") Managed to get it mostly done, though it doesn't really convey form at all, and in that respect, it's not a particularly useful sketch, for me or you.
Not a whole lot to say about the bottle; the proportions are off (I didn't properly sight it before starting with the shading), and the tones are neither interesting nor accurate. This was one of the first drawings I did in Spain, trying to get the hang of drawing again.
Something more developed:
The upper part of the nose to between the eyes is off, and the left eye (my left) is a bit off, though in general I did have that creepy intense look on my face (happens when I'm trying to get things right). I need to work more on ears, too.
