Fantastic help. Yes, thank you so much.

Here is the new chunked out version. It looks a little odd on the screen, but I think it's close to what it needs to be when it's about an inch tall.

Hey, I think that this does look better! Any chance of a front view render?

Cheers,

Thanks! I felt like I was doing better when I looked at it and said to myself, "he needs an ankle," rather than, "hmmmmm."

Here's the front. The arm/shoulder region needs a bit of tweaking I think.

Looks pretty good! I think the thing to watch out for is the ankle is currently just about as thick as his thigh, and definitely thicker than the knee. You may want to slim that a bit. Also, the top of the hand looks 'puffy'. You might flatten that out a bit to look a little more natural.

Apart from that, I think you're on the right track!

Cheers,

~Rk

Sorry for the lack of updates. "the guy" has a bit of a face neck and a few major muscles. I tweaked the legs a bit at Rebecca's suggestion. The hands actually need to get a bit fatter. I did a test cut and they're a still a little bit thin. Neck and head are a bit narrow in this shot.


I was also sketching a bit to learn about the arm. (and after looking at the two together i think I need to move the bicep down a bit.

billrobertson42,

I know you've mentioned the head, but I think that it looks a bit small for the body (not just too narrow). What are your thoughts?

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

I have thought that myself, but he's no taller than he used to be so I left it alone.

Current proportions...



*edit* hold on a sec for the image...

Tech support claims the problems should be resolved now.

Feet and ankles are pretty messed up (but that's what boots are for), and the bicep somehow got flattened out (?).

Other than that though, I think he's looking o.k. considering that I'm just sort of shooting for a decent form and some of the basic topology. I've also learned a lot about some of the basic shape of the body, which has been part of the goal too. There is still a long way to go.

I've also put out a couple gestural drawings too. It really seems a lot like what John Buscema calls doing stick figures. I recall doing a lot of that, but that was a long time ago. I'm still trying to sort of get the right notion for the master drawings (the 5/10/15 min exercises).

Thanks again so much for all of the help.

Hey, you're welcome!

He's looking pretty good! You might want to make his arms a bit longer if you get the chance.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Ack! I did it. I have no idea how I will ever complete it, but what the heck.

I'm trying to sketch out concepts, and I am just so ... inexperienced.

Anyway, I've been poking about for a reference picture of somebody running, from a front view (because I can't figure out the foreshortening), and I'm drawing a blank about where to look for one. (Having a rough day), and pointers?

I would just Google "runner" ~ also, check out the 15 Minute Sketchathon Reference Sticky, there are lots of pictures of runners (olympic) there, which I found by Googling "runner" + Olympic.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Yeah, my brain re-engaged after I posted that, and that's what I did. I found a photo that is almost exactly what I'm looking for too.

Thanks

LOL, no problem.
