View Full Version : WIP - Roman Gladiator and Tiger

01 January 2005, 11:26 PM

Ive finally realised that its no good submitting final works in the finished forum then asking what needs to be imporved! So I'm starting this thread to show the progress of my new painting and get any criticism and make improvements.

I want to create quite a dramatic peice (will be my first) of a tiger fighting a roman gladiator.

It's quite late here so I have briefly sketched in a (very) rough design which I quite like.
I will do a basic colour version tomorrow. The pic is only of the foreground (the tiger and gladiator) as I will add a background when I am more sure of how it should be lit.

I would like anyones opinions on how it should be lit and any other comments if you have any(should I zoom the pic out a bit?).

Ill post the next part tomorrow and make any changes.

Thanks for the heads up.

The image is still not available. Just an image-hosting service.

Copy and paste the link, it much not allow hotlinking to images. The image is in a very early stage, so it's hard too comment, get the linework finished and maybe some base colour down and we'll comment more...

edit:Tigers are also alot bigger

Hello All,
Sorry for the trouble with the link, but I have done an early colour version.

Please copy and paste the following link to see the image:

I'd apreciate any comments on everything from lighting to poses, sizes etc.
I really want to make sure I'm getting it right from the start!

Thanks for your help,

I don't like this composition at all. The claw fingers are too thin, the mans head is out of proportion...
I am going to do a good quality line drawing and resubmit it to everyone.
Thanks for being patient :)
