    First head seems way small Orik, which is weird, considering you followed the guide lines. It's not wide enough, I think.

    It feels to me like the torso is too wide.

    could that be because the head is small

    Something completely different that I actually finished off of a good sketch done while watching Taken. 2hours. Bash it!

    Just some work doodles. Working more on adding depth through foreshortening and shadows, and trying my hand at drawing women, two things I suck at.

    Not sure why there's that weird blurriness and pixelation on the top two, and I don't care enough to fix it.

    I guess so. If you're trying to draw a midget of heroic proportions.

    One thing I've noticed with your stuff, Munch, is that you're good at rendering and inking parts separately, but when it comes to the point where you have to put it together into a whole, it sometimes falls apart.

    For instance, the guy on the last page behind the green scritchy. The leg looks great. The upper chest area looks good. The arms are good, especially the one further away. The inking is great and controlled. However, all together it looks very very wonky, like a Frankenstein monster made out of other body part doodles.

    I can't tell if you used guidelines or not for him, but the guideline figures on the top right of that same page have alot more character and structure than the previously mentioned character, as well as more movement and excitement.

    That being said, I love your inking. Tell me your secrets. :)

    First hour of a WIP doodle, I want to turn it into a finished piece, which, for me in Photoshop, is almost unheard of. Current problems I'm having with this piece are the overlay of the hand on the face, and the background. I know you're supposed to begin with the composition laid out as a whole, but I started this as a concept/experiment piece. Other problems I have with in general that show in this are skin tones and light direction/refraction.

    Also, first post, long time lurker, hi all! Big fan, McGibs.

    I think if you were drawing someone like Patrick Warburton, the shoulders would be okay. But the chesticles are kinda far apart if they're supposed to be muscle. The way they're drawn makes them look...boobular.

    Umm...just some Lookouts fanart doodles.

    Rather, Daughter of the Eyrewood doodles.

    Really liked the comic, it made me want to draw something.

    I haven't drawn children in years. The first little doodle on the page was actually the last one drawn, as I began to get sick of trying to get a group image in my normal style and tried to do some strange mishmash of the way they are presented in the comic and what I normally do. It was really helpful for drawing children images of some of my original characters a few days later in a 'question and answer comic' thing.

    Got a forum account since I've been meaning to forever. Figure it should be fitting my first post is both art and PA related. Ha!

    Munch, where do you work to get free time to draw that much?!

    I try to draw when things are incubating in the lab. But then things catch fire, and then theres screaming, someone from the dementia ward tries to break in, the ultra-centrifuge throws a disk through the wall...... no time to draw at all!

    I work third shift as a security guard. My time is divided between watching DVDs, reading comics, drawing, and drinking coffee. Pretty sweet gig, though the pay and hours kind of suck.

    I think a lot of that can be chalked up to bad habits I've taught myself over the past few years. When I was learning to draw by reading anatomy books and stuff, I'd just draw individual body parts over and over, trying to learn where all the muscles were, and how they moved. Even now, when I'm doodling, I tend to start off drawing a body part and then just building a figure around it. I'm usually more conscious of keeping a line of action or some dynamism in my figures if it's for something I plan to bring to completion, but I definitely need to do more gesture drawings to get some fluidity into my sketches. I'm going to be taking formal art classes for the first time in the Fall, so hopefully that'll help me in some areas I'm weakest in.

    As for inking, I'm glad you like it, because I've never thought it was my strong suit. I really just use a collection of old, worn out Sharpies, technical, and brush pens to scratch around on the paper until it looks right.

    thank you, I'll be here all night.

    but seriously, folks,
    let me take this time to make fun of Sharky and R. Action for their haircuts.

    and wak, your palettes and style in your simple pasty ladies work a lot better than when you try do locally render them like in your blackalope or poison ivy picture. I think your strength lies in more flat application of few tones, and I'd like to see you tackle some different builds and ethnicities in both facial features and skin tones in that style.

    I honestly didn't realize she was supposed to be black. If I spend some time looking at it, I can see it - the lips, the hair. The elements are there. She kinda falls into the category Hollywood detractors call "non-threateningly non-white". It's still excellent work, very attractive, but I do think she could be, well, blacker.

    Yeah... shes not particularly dark. From the handfull of black people I've drawn, I find the high-contrast their skin has to be really interesting to shade. I think it would work really well with your style wakk, if you push the contrast of shadows and speculars.

    I loved getting a black model during life painting classes at Ringling - I don't know what it is, but their skin tones are just really fun to paint and always ended up with a step up in painting for me.
