    Hey guys, here's my latest endeavor.

    dfsmall.jpg

    It's actually a commission, so subject matter's not really up to me, but I figured I'd also throw it up here to see how you would take it if it was something I was just doing on my own. If the guy likes it, I probably won't change anything, but it's always good to know for me. Oh, by the way, no ref was used. Just had to get a relative likeness for his face, which was the only ref he sent me.

    You should probably look for some references on how people actually hold a violin.

    Also: bizarre arm proportions.

    Nice. The human figure is rendered very nicely, but the violin appears to be a bit too thin...

    That looks like he's about to fall asleep and the violin and bow are slipping from his grip.

    Holy shit, his left arm is way too long... >_> That will be remedied.

    As to how people hold a violin, I was looking at a reference, so, if people could be more specific or give me a reference they found that shows how mine's wrong?

    And as for the violin being too thin, thanks. I wasn't sure it's exact proportions.

    I know that's small, but the fingers there look like they're gripping the bow more than in your drawing. Don't know much about violins or violin playing though.

    Still experimenting with painting on 3D models. I built the model in Blender and painted it in PS.

    Yay, Blender.

    Might want to work on the particle emitter. That looks messy.

    Thanks. That's not a particle emitter. It's a PS brush.
    And I'm also a big fan of Blender. It's free and makes you learn scripting. Then you can download Yaf(a)ray and have great render engine for free also. The whole Blender Cult is amazing. The games and movies coming out of it is incredible.

    I know it's also hard to see the hands as gripping because you can't see the thumbs...

    way better

    now let's talk about the head:

    (I tried to put it into words, but that got too long and byzantine, so here's a drawover)

    I know I changed his features quite a bit, but I think this still highlights the perspective issues you had

    Tam,

    While normally I would agree with you that your head looks much better, it's not really a question of perspective. The commission is supposed to be a relative likeness, if stylized. The man is actually a bit on the pudgier side. However, being a customer, I didn't think that I should really portray him as such. While I didn't draw someone incredibly muscular, I didn't draw him exactly the way he was (as I remember him).

    Here was the reference he sent me.

    violindude.jpg

    So, as you can see, I was kind of trying to move it more towards a likeness.

    Also, he's already emailed me back (since the second edit), and appears to be quite happy with it, so I guess he thinks I did an ok job on the face. *shrug*

    I'm not a very good painter, but I can only develop so many skills at a time. I just started doing 3D four weeks ago, and Blender two weeks ago. I'm pretty satisfied with the mesh, though I might end up tweaking the knee/ankle size - I'm not sure if I want it that cartoony.

    When i went to the Chicago and seen the Chicago Symphony, this Violinist did a 15 minute solo just standing there swinging her head around.

    It was bad ass.

    This is pretty cool, as is most of your stuff. Both here and on your website. But what I am noticing as a trend is that you always only use static poses. All of your characters look fairly stiff. Even weight distribution for the legs, straightforward pose, mostly front or three-quarters views. I get that you're coming up with concepts, but even then, you can give them movement. For example, this is very conceptual, but remains interesting, flowing, and natural to the eye.

    Perhaps try to expand on your repertoire a bit?
