More of a concept sketch than anything else, because I'm not sure if I can pull off such a weird camera angle and extreme foreshortening.
>> No. 7874
Wow, that's going to be a very hard angle. Your doing practically a worms eye view of Solly. Maybe it would help if you make Solly a bit closer to the point? That way when you get up to his head, your not drawing in such a tiny space.
It also might help if you were drawing like you were laying on the control point, looking up to Solly coming down on you.
But I do look forward to seeing what you do with this!

I own one of those art store wooden pose-able dolls for drawing reference and I will say from experience, they don't work worth two shits. Sure you can do a few good poses with them but if you're going for detail type posing, they don't hold the form, and start taking on more of a ballerina look.

IMO, save some money aside and get the ball jointed doll or look through some magazines and still shots for referencing, it'll be more worth it than a wooden posing doll (mine is now just sitting on a shelf, collecting dust.)

So why is Dot freezing her butt off in Illinois? Because her super awesome godparents have an embroidery machine, that's why.

I have half a mind to make a buttload of these (as in, iron/sew-on geek badges) to sell at conventions. Of course actually doing this would be a lot more complicated than just all the wrangling that goes into even making one in the first place.

Just a general concept for Lady Spy. She's probably the only Class who'd intentionally invoke Fanservice as part of her job--after all, with an outfit like that, nobody would be looking at her face.

Loosely dramatized scene from Mayfield, wherein the RED Sniper I had been playing went for several months without cutting his hair because the new barber (the BLU Spy, whom I also play) made him too paranoid to let the man anywhere near him with a straight razor. The Spy depicted in this picture is RED, without his mask because you enter into Mayfield minus any of your stuff.

Now, I'm no artistic genius myself, so uh. I'm kind of nervous to redline, but I'm hoping this helps. And a couple notes. The line below Spy's nostril should be above it, and then both jaws are somewhat lacking in definition. Also I would suggest referencing the character model for the shape of the holes in Spy's balaclava, specifically around the mouth. Speaking of, you'll notice on the model that the balaclava somewhat obscures certain features, so take it into consideration around the nostrils and lines in the face. Anyway, you got some neat stuff going for you! I really hope this is useful.

Hands are a salty pain in the ass for artists at any level to draw- back in the age when people liked buying painted portraits of themselves, getting one with visible hands cost extra.

I've tried to throw together a bit of a redline here, though it may be junky and useless. The thing that's making this picture not work right now isn't the pose itself, but the rendering of Sniper's hand. Try to keep track of where each joint in his hand should be, and use details like his fingernails and the folds on the underside of the finger to suggest dimension.

Also, you should know a dead person can't write letters.

i think you should really work on your colors and minimize the palette. a lot of rainbow colors in all of your stuff. too much saturation also. try to get used to color schemes and sticking to them.
>> No. 7931
Woah woah woah. Easy on the filters, br'a. You had some really interesting lines there before you threw that pointillism effect on it, and now it just looks like a lame photoshop effect. Because it is.
And like the person above me said, you aught to scale back the colours in the background. It's really eye-searing, and it competes with the foreground. I'd definitely limit it to just two or three colours. I'd also consider hand-drawing the background, even if it's just drawing some action lines. Computer-generated patterns just aren't going to fit with your sketchy, organic style.

I really like the highlights you've put around Pyro's body though. You should keep those.
>> No. 7932

What do you mean by "color schemes"? I've studied color theory, but I pretty much pick colors based on what looks good.

Man, I hope this is okay?

I could only see issues with Spy in this one - Sniper looks really good!
Spy's body was far too large for his head, and the lower half of his face was on the wrong plane in relation to the rest of his skull. Also, his left arm/hand was held at an awkward angle.

I think your earlier version made for a more interesting pose ( >>2645 ) but there's nothing wrong with continuing the one you have now. It'll just be more of a challenge with Spy's left arm.
