    I don't know what the previous drawings looked like (they're little x's to me) but the chest armor still looks kinda awkward. Reminds me of this, actually. It's also kind of odd that the waist is as tiny as it is, while things like the calves, thighs, and feet are huge.

    Um. It still looks kind of bulbous and tumescent. And uncomfortable - no matter how it's designed, that plate's going to cut right into her ribcage under her tits when she moves. If it had more of a gradual taper, it would look a) more comfortable, and b) more insectile, which I think would work with the faceplate thing you've got going on.

    edit: by the way, boobs can actually squish down comfortably to a certain degree. I'd rather have mine slightly compressed than getting in the way of me moving my arms - 'roomy' boob armour really isn't necessary.

    This looks much better. I think it would be cool to have some more Roman/Samurai-style layered armor in the chest area, though. To add flexibility.

    So while dicking around with trying to figure out a simpler comic style, I remembered why I stopped inking things.
    I'm too lazy to bother with things like... line variations... or hatching... or crap like that.

    Welp, time to make you all hate me. I took some of the ideas there, mostly moving the center of the bust up so it's less saggy-tit looking, but I'm not changing the basic design of the breastplate, for the purely selfish reason of liking the idea of a simple, upside-down heart/triangle shape, to the point where realism is very much a secondary concern. I get it- it's just not what I want, design wise. (Otherwise I'd probably punch some eyeholes in that helmet, and get rid of that weird horn that I just put in there because it was weird).

    Much better. I think that works as well as McGibs' paintover. Though the space from her hips to her chest is unprotected, as well as the area between her boobies and her shoulders (the most common place to stab a person in a low-budget film).

    Eh, as the bad guy "The Doctor" famously says in the very popular Jet Li film that I am sure everyone has seen (and thus everyone will get this reference), Meltdown, AKA High Risk:

    "No risk, no reward."




    Hrm, that line doesn't have quite the same impact delivered in text format, or without being followed up by a bus full of hostages exploding.

    it looks pretty cool, even if she'd get shiv'd really easily in the lower abdomen

    the only gripe I have is that that is some thick-as-a-redwood lower leg armor
    unless she's a tree-woman and has sequoia ancestry- in which case I apologize

    Very cool. I like that you stuck with a very limited color palette.


    Here's some 1 hr practice environments. I've had several people tell me that I need work on my color, it usually looks pasty, so I found www.colorshemedesigner.com and SS'ed a few swatch selections of color schemes I liked. I used the ones you see on the page on the lower half environs.
    I plan to do a lot more of these, they're really fun.

    Lexxy those portraits are really, really nice. I'm amazed when people get results like that from markers. I bought a bunch of prismacolor pens ages ago thinking maybe expensive markers are easier to use. Nope, I'm just a chump.

    What do you draw on with them? Like, do you use really thick paper? I always have a problem with the colour bleeding, or the paper breaking apart.

    Thanks! Right now I'm drawing on tagboard, which is basically the same thing as card stock I guess? Just heavy paper. It's a little bleedy, which I like for some things, but it holds up very well. I also have some other paper that I did the one of the girl with her eyes closed on, but I forget what it is specifically. I'll have to check. I know you can get "marker pads" too, which I guess is paper specifically geared towards marker drawing?

    Also, I mostly use copics--they're a lot more flexible (and less smelly) than prismacolors. Hobby Lobby carries 'em--I'm actually going there today to pick up a few colors I want but don't have.

    edit: Also also, I find that using them the way I would use watercolors seems to help a lot; starting things off with light shades and fills and building up the values gradually. For smoother blending, it helps to work on an area that is still fresh/damp. When I do the blushy parts of the face, I power through three or four applications of color in rapid succession.

    Lastly, I don't think I cross-posted my most recent marker draws, sooooo:

    Lexxy, I kept looking back at your pieces and thinking "there's SOMETHING I would change." but not knowing what it was, because your stuff looks good. BUT I think I can articulate it now; Your faces are all so well colored and have good lines, but because it's so well colored I think it has too many lines. In the case of those two pictures, one too many lines.

    I feel like if you removed the line of the upper lip but kept the lines in the key points (where the ends of the lips meet) you'd have a lot less busy faces and they wouldn't look like they almost have a mustache.

    My 2 cents.

    I don't know, Sab. I have to disagree. I think it's pretty clear that they don't have mustaches, and I think the lips are very well rendered.

    Thanks, Sab! I'll try that on one to see how it looks. I normally don't outline lips in my digital drawings because I prefer to establish their shape with color, so it makes sense for me to do the same with my marker drawings. I'll be offering b/w ones at the convention as well, though, so I'll still need to draw them in those cases.

    made it into a book/comic cover just to balance out the empty space at the top.

    Flame thrower guy looks like harry potter... with a flame thrower.

    The hand of the lizard (around the mace) is very flat (the other one is very small) and the snout/arm tangent is bothering the crap out of me (my school is so anti-tangent recognizing them is a reflex now, ugh.) but I like the values, colors, and detail you put in a lot. Careful of those random veins. They look cool but people can get finnicky when details like that are done for details sake.

    while the colors are nice obilex, the anatomy is weird and the waves in the water are very large and not in perspective, it makes them look super photoshopped

    I worked a bit on this. the chainsaw still makes no sense! I moved it more towards the viewer a little bit (really just fixed the angle on the body that I had before) woo woo

    She should be holding the crossbar grip, not that wierd... wrapped hook thing. The weight of the chainsaw hangs from the users arm like a sling. It's comfortable.
    The way you have all the wieght is being lifted by her bicep. Very tiring and awkward looking.

    It's an interesting stylization, and I don't know if I'd change it cos it looks neat, but that is some intense color you've got going on around her nipples and navel, Obilex. It makes them look more like wounds than flushed areas.

    I did more marker drawings today! First one is a cross-post of Troll Lexxy, whom has been officially dubbed LEXXER DUGLAS:

    Sweet marker work, yo

    [EDIT]

    jpeg: She looks pretty well laid-out

    I think you could stand to use more dynamic light sources in your pieces. You have a lot of images with multiple lights of different colors, but for the most part your primary light source always seems to come from straight on, like someone's taking a flash photo. It doesn't make them feel flat, but it does make them feel pretty static.
