    Yo, need all the advice I can get on this, before I get tired of looking at it, preferably.

    Bah, I knew you'd show up! It was an IDW (industrial design of the week) over at CA and I thought it'd be fun. Damn your deep military equipment knowledge!

    It could be optical stealth (cloaking device) that's just not enabled! Nobody said it was radar stealth :P

    I don't know... It just looks....undynamic. Her feet look like she's floating, her hair is hiding her body and her legs are hiding whatever's behind her. Should have gone for the hat-trick of laziness and put her hands in her pockets, too.

    I have gotten everything from "This is the shittiest piece I have ever seen" to "HOLY FUCK that amazing."

    I'll tweak the legs a bit more, but this picture has me really confused on the responses.

    Metal doesn't know what he's talking about, Wakk. The metroid one reads like a fashion portrait and you hit the attitude bang on. Only thing I'd agree with metal about is that the feet look "floaty".

    Also this new one is great. I like the texture and greater "real"-ness of it.

    thing about wak's metroid pic is that while its super tightly rendered, a few things just out as being unnatural looking or straight up awkward. Hair and the feet, but also the legs. The biggest issue is the balance, what with the torso arched the way it is and the added weight of the gun , her legs and hips need to be repositioned to balance the pose accordingly. The hair is off because it falls way too flat, while attention should be payed to the outward curves of her chest behind. That's an easy fix, just darken the lighting a bit in certain areas and no problem.

    Have you ever seen straightened hair? The hair looks natural and is very striking visually. The feet seem to float but I imagine in context itll be fine, aside from that I really disagree with the other criticisms, the body sits perfectly well and is in pretty tight proportion.

    Also christ the armour is fantastic looking.

    I thought that was the point, the rigidity of the armour vs. the bendy grace of her female form. I liked the contrast.

    I thought she was supposed to be floating, heh, then yeah, its the knees that make it seem like she's floating, she's also standing on a bit of wiring thats on the floor, so it doesn't look natural.

    No wait, the knees, thats part but not the whole problem. The way she is bending her hip and putting her weight on the right leg, the armor is not following that motion.

    then the soles of her feet are angled wrong and the wiring needs to cleared from beneath her because if you ask me its screaming that she isn't. I hope she is though, it would look really cool if she's like trying break out of her suit or something and she's proppelled upwards while doing it.

    oh and thanks mustang :) I've spent months fidgeting with what works and what doesn't so hopefully i'm heading in the right direction....textures will be kept a minimum this time....i hope.

    got tired of having to remember what page it was on.

    I don't really see a logistics problem with it, the way I read it is she is suspended/floating/etc., feet hanging, and not directly relating/interacting with the background.

    EDIT: unrelated to the metroid pic; Myk, are you or have you gotten proper schooling on for art?

    I saw your last pic and was thinking of how much you've improved (in some ways) since I've watched you post here (maybe two winters ago?), but then again how many bad habits you still have.

    I would really like to see you work outside of your comfort zone. maybe a shitload of still-lifes (not for rendering practice, but for compositional practice), followed by a shitload of figural work in positions where you can not see the face, and then followed with full figural work with faces, and the entire time you go about it, do so without even a hint of the sci-fi/military/fantasy element.

    I think if you were to go through all of that, it would break you of some bad habits you have (rendering in grayscale then applying color, treating your faces differently than the rest of your works, the abundance of MGS/Splinter-cell elements, etc.).

    If you were to do that and then come back to the stuff you like you to do, all of your work, including the scifi-military stuff would be drastically better.

    The reason I asked about you getting your schooling on is that even a half-decent school would force you through all of that. It just seems that you're practicing really fucking hard ultimately to be a one-trick pony.

    I know I rag you every couple of months about it, but as dedicated as you are, I think you can go much further faster than the results of the method you've taken over the past year and a half have brought you.

    havnt posted on the forums for about a week, so heres a few doodies i was working on. trying to stick more with traditional methods rather than digital stuff (except uni assignments of course)

    sketches done yesterday morning while having a coffee. Yes, i was one of those creepy guys who draws random people minding their own business. BTW that young lady was very hot!

    mlt44i.jpg

    Some character development studies. Going to be re-designing Solid Snake and Big Boss. Yes they look like rip-offs of the actual characters, but i guess its best to get cliches out of the way first, eh?

    Haha. They did actually. I suppose the readon he has chosen weird words are to force us to think more conceptually. In my case, i dont think he was successful :) Oh another three word combo im working on is " John travolta, sensitive and green"
    Whats that? john travolta crying on a green lawn? Sounds very conceptual to me!
