View Full Version : Repost : WIP : The Fall (nudity)
12-08-2002, 06:40 PM
OK i lost the post but i'm goign to repost the WIP's (which are linked to my site) and the current version. Done using Painter 7 on a Mac, so far a couple of hours work... comments/crits welcome.
At this stage didn't know where to take it, had only just started drawing again after three years (first posted end of last week) so found my drawing skills weren't up to much... almost thought about using a battlescene background, but then realised this was pandering too much to tastes that are in the board rather than anything meaningfull...
So i changed the battlefield tot eh battlefield of the bedroom... they've clearly just made love, add's more dimensions to teh title, "The Fall" i think...
Refinement with lighting and stuff... give me crits and help with what to do, how to make this better, am i going in the right direction? Comments and crits appreciated (drawing, content, approach).

Thanks, no this is purely out of my head. though i sorely miss life drawing. :(

okay here's some problem areas, aside from these, the back ground should have less "color intensity" ... sooo smaller line widths and less contrast, besides that AWESOME!!!!!!! working from your head and producing this is really good!!!

cool, thanks, ok well i took on board those thigns and worked on this some more (i've been busy doing paid work so it's hard to get the time). anyhow here's where i'm at so far... i've got two version... one played around a bit in photoshop and i'm thinking is maybe a better image for it's lo-fi overexposed quality, the other the current version sans effects.
let me know what you think, what's better out of the two... and any help with getting this to look better :) i.e. comments/crits more than welcome.

i like the first one more (the more saturated one)... can you blur the bed and person on the bed some more? and his pinky is too short (his left hand on knee)
I hope you don't mind i did a paint over :hmm:
This is looking really good, especially for not having drawn in 3 years. You have a really nice rendering style :) However the form of the body isnt really there yet. Im no expert, but heres what i noticed:
The foot seems like its on a different plane, or even floating because of the perspective in the background. It needs to follow the lines i think.
The left arm is about 1 third longer than the right arm. I think the right arm is of better scale, but a bnit too wide which makes it look pretty short and stubby.
To left of him there is this thing sticking out, is that his right foot? If it is, then this position is very very painful (i actually tried it :surprised ) Try getting into this position, maybe even take a picture of yourself.
As for the nose showing, i thought about it and i guess it could be showing, but im not sure. From that angle it just seems like it wouldnt because the neck wouldnt line up in the right spot on the torso. I could be wrong about this though.
I really like the background, but i just have one comment and that is woman looks very relaxed the way her hand is just hanging there, but her leg being bent and knee lifted makes her look less relaxed. I think it would look cool if her calf was hanging off the side of the bed :)
Good luck with this, its a very cool image.
