    How are you planning to detail the girl? Given her body type and hair, she's getting dangerously close to "generic anime girl x".

    Try to avoid so many tris if you can, Delz. Plan to avoid them. Especially in the area where you're gonna be putting her eye. Make your base mesh as clean as humanly possible, itll make your life SO much easier if youre gonna texture her or up res her. Are you building her with a reference plane to her front and side?

    BTW, I'd build the hand seperately then import it in if you're scared of it.

    I'm right about at the level of detail I want, so the mesh probably won't change too much. I might tweak the face a bit so the UV mapping is a bit cleaner. This is for a game character that probably won't be viewed too close. Once I finish up the hair and hands, I'm going to start building the outfit, cobbled together from some business-mobster-edwardian fashions.

    Most of the character detail will come from the texture mapping and outfit mesh.

    Need some helps. My work has me do caricature for the people who retire. It's usually pretty fun, but this time it is my former boss and also artist and I'd like to make him proud:


    Doncopy.jpg

    he likes to paint and grill...


    here is his real life picture:
    Donpic.jpg

    His glasses have changed which is why they are square, any crits to help me out here?

    It seems like in the caricature he has stubble, but an actual beard in the photograph. Maybe concentrate more on the outline of the beard than the individual hairs?

    WCK, for the future - if you want that clean white matted look, put some painter's tape down before you start painting. At the end, take it off, and you'll have beautiful clean edges.

    The dinosaur I posted yesterday has no personality so I tried taking him in another direction, but stopped with a bust because I began to think he looked too much like Wally Gator. Any ideas/Thoughts/Input?

    I think it just needs more emphasis on the lower jaw. Also, the big dinos had pretty large skulls, and I think the eye-ridge extends downward makes it seem like his head is small. The way the neck is bent on the carnivores probably meant there weren't a lot of skin folds like you seen on crocs and gators.

    Crowleston, even with something so cartoony it would be a good idea to look up some references.

    You can't really stylize something if you don't have a full understanding of what it looks like to begin with.

    The poses communicate what's going on well, but they're a bit unnatural. In the first one, the page isn't quite facing the character and isn't on a steady plane - the spine of the book is, but not the page on which he's writing.

    The second one is similar. The single outstretched arm remind me of Chinese calligraphy, not handwriting. People tend to lean forward when writing on a desk, and use the non-writing hand to keep the writing surface from moving.

    Thanks for any advice and critique! I played with a bit, I think I'll go back to the drawing board for a bit. I spent some time looking at fossils and such more and less at my original drawing. As of now I'm more satisfied, but need to finalize things a bit more.

    THANKSSS.

    I have been practicing drawing with a skull today, all the drawings suck of course but I kinda liked this one. There is so much detail in a human skull that I had never really though about before I don't even know where to start. But it sure it educational.

    @DMAC: :^:, as always. I'm not sure about it's rear, right leg though. It looks a bit lit it's just growing out his/her stomach.

    @Mes: Neat! The stylisation works really well.

    @Obelix: That texture feels more 'grunge' than 'cloudy' to me. Also, I'm not sure the white highlights are working. I'm digging the colour pallet though.

    @verpakeyes: The most important thing is to not draw what you think you see, but what you are actually looking at. Even small changes in perspective make a massive difference, and no two skulls are quite the same. If you're looking for somewhere to start, the questions/tutorial thread has some great advice. :)

    They're both holding those quills really awkwardly. Look up "write" in GIS for some hand refs.

    Also, mostly for the girl: you don't lean back in your chair and extend your hand that far out to write on something in front of you. You end up leaning over a bit so you can see what you're writing from a more vertical angle. Trying to write at that distance from the paper [parchment? olol] would be silly!
