whooohooooo

Hey hey! Well here's another character from this project i'm working on. She took quite a while to design and i think i'm set on this. On another note i was quite foolish to think that i can get a book done early next year and i have just realized this might take a little more than a year to finish. I still have some characters to design and to craft a better story! :D Stay tuned though.


These are 2 of the process drawings i have for the mask. I can't seem to find the rest of the other 50 drawings i went through to get to where i am now with this character. I shall post them at a later date when they are found! :D


I have recently gotten back into life drawing and i noticed there were a lot of inconsistencies with the way i draw muscles. So i'm kinda trying to learn and familiarize my self with how they are grouped and the way they move under certain gestures. I am 100% nay 200% sure these are not accurate at all but i am learning a lot from this really good book called The Anatomy Figure Drawing Handbook and my life drawing intructor. Anyways it was fun to draw random arm positions and lay the muscles work down and color the bone in. More as it develops :D!

Well thats it for this update. Hope everyone is doing well! :)

Lovin' this idea! can't wait to see more. Who are the other 2 artists working w/you? I'd like to check out their blogs.

New character looks good, maybe "too evil" though...just a thought.

Great hand and leg studies from an earlier post. Keep it up!

Liera said...

I love the new character. I like the red mask design too. Cool to see your previous ideas. Going on weds to life drawing again?

Khylov said...

Some killer anatomy studies. Little bit of the CN approach design-wise, but you've definitely got alot more going on with the perspective and physique of the thing. Saved these for reference.

Nice Rag! i like how you posted the ideas and progessive studies of the mask and character.

Muscle stuff is pretty tight, i think they seem a tad flat but you have the right idea going, are you in Adam's classes now? i should drop by as well sometime next week.

Oh right that book-dealio you mentioned before...should be pretty cool when you're done!

cheers~

Fantastic work, man! The story about the 2 kids has me intrigued. They kind of remind of the manga Shaman King which is one of my favorites!
