    That looks a lot better than the last version I saw, Tam.

    Your proportions actually seem to be pretty good, and it took me some looking at it before I realized that the lenses in the glasses need to be bigger. That could absolutely be throwing the eyes off.

    Would love some feedback on my new character Nimm, the Rogue.

    Nimm.jpg

    Still very early, but how does the pose and design look so far? The right portrait is Nimm in a disguise.

    Looking pretty good, but the way his feet hit the ground isn't very convincing and he looks a little rigid. Tweaking the angle and playing with the shadows some more will help I think.

    Well, gotta say, that's a pretty boring (and, like Poj said, stiff) pose. Try using some action lines as a base to help you determine the pose. And maybe try something not so straight on. At least maybe a 3/4 view if you want to show a lot of the character.

    And BOTP'd

    More progress. At this point, I realized I drew the original sketch a little off proportion(flattened out everything, not in the sense that I squished the image, but lowered the angle) to the reference I was using, and have subsequently decided not to change it because I'm lazy. As far as I can see, it doesn't change anything major.

    Thanks :) It is a robot. A male one at that (as far as robots have a gender). It's incredibly sloppy at the back of the head and such but those'll be wires. I'm just brainstorming at this point though (and yeah, this drawing is stiff and sloppy and.. ugh), I expect I'll change the shoulders at the very least.

    Radar, it's coming along nicely. Maybe it's just my hand (possibly, fat fingers?) but my fingers don't quite come out of the hand like that when I try that pose though.

    Those are nice, but everything seems a bit flat. If the sun is in the background there should probably be deeper shadows in the foreground, facing the viewer. As a series they all fit really well with each other, though. :)

    I have long thin fingers, myself, but this is irelevant. Here's the ref: I am a reference!

    Mustang -- when you're painting, looks like you laid down a base color, then made that color more black for shadows and more white for highlights. Don't do that! For shadows, don't add black-- add the color's complement. Or, rather, move the hue in the direction of the complement.

    Thanks Penguins, I think I understand. You're right though, I do have the habit of doing as you said, more so out of ignorance than habitual practice though. I tried dumping some environmental reds in after, but I don't think it made much, if any, of an impact. I really do need to do some reading on colours and their crazy experimental properties.

    Robuts, I was going for nosferatu teeth, I think they're a bit creepier than regular canine pointers.

    Actually, don't directly add the color's compliment. That would be too extreme. Rather, a subtler way of doing it (and a more correct one), would be to simply move towards that compliment. Your darkest color probably being at most a yellow orange. In contrast with the green, it'll look red. And gradient your colors towards that. Don't just jump on it.

    As for highlights, the same general principle applies. Somewhere in jthere, move it a little towards the compliment, and then have your brightest color actually be the color of your light source. Yellow or blue or whatever it is. It'll add to the three dimensionality of your piece.

    Yeah good clarification, Radar. Really though, that bit of advice was probably the most valuable thing anyone ever told me when I started painting not too long ago.

    More studies today. This one gave me fits.

    Based on how light your highlights are, and how hard that shadow is, there really should be darker shadows on the cup's backside. Even considering relfected light (which should be cooler, not warm yellow, if the surface actually is cyan). Were you referencing this, or just painting from memory?

    Also, why is there a violet "U" on the light side of the cup? It shouldn't be there.

    You know, a good way to improve your pieces would be to actually take critique. For this, I would tell you exactly what desperaterobots said pages back. And, if no one said this, your symbol looks like a man running. If it's not supposed to be that, which I don't think it is, that's poor graphic design. If you could tell me what it is supposed to mean, then I can throw some suggestions out.

    For the sketches above, you really need to study anatomy and stop making your people so symbolized. They're not even stylized, they're just rudimentary. And for the house, you should relook at your perspective. Very few of the lines match up.
