Hairy arms! 2012-07-11 19:31:27 Reply

Hi,

very VERY unfinished picture, so no hate plz. I dont know why but I cant figure out how to make the arms hairy. I tried different brushes different strokes, different colors. It doesnt need to be realistic, but all that I do looks very bad and distracting. now it looks like the arm has gills.

I tried finding examples online, but didnt really find any. does anyone have any ideas?? it bothers the crapp out of me.

Hairy arms!

Just draw a ton of tiny black lines around on the arm. It will look like hair :)

Just do the edges of the arms with fine, slightly-transparent hairs.
For eople with light hair, the hair on their arms is most visible on the edges because of the contrast between skin tone and background. The hair on the meaty bit of their arms and legs isn't as noticeable.

For that image though, I'd just leave the hair off the arms and legs all together.

Still not there.

I tried a bunch of tips, and this is the best I can come up with... (left arm; your left; isnt correct, just mind the right arm; your right)

I am still not really satisfied. I tried thicker hairs.. didnt look good. I now highlighted the hair when it comes off the arm, which seems best.

any more ideas?

Hairy arms!

They're too damn parallel. People don't brush their arm hair and make it line up like that. So my suggestion is to make them less and less parallel until you settle on the right effect.

but I get your point

thx for the hair advice. this is the result. I'll post 2 version, one with cartoony sand and one with realistic sand. I am still not sure which is better.

I still need to brush up some small things, especially in the sand area/shading

Hairy arms!

From your last picture I say the arm hair aren't what you should be nitpicking over- if that's how your guy is gonna be sized the hairs are fine that way*. Your guys torso is very weirdly proportioned- particularly the waist, shoulders, lower left leg, lack of neck, and left arm. If you are reluctant to change anything just deflate the shoulders and give the left arm more definition.

*i have never really seen hairs like this: | | | | | | | | | just looks silly imo, leg hair especially is a curly mess


you talk a good one but u dont do what your supposed to do

I appreciate the feedback I really do. The body proportions are not perfect I agree, but theyre not off that much. I drew this with a human anatomy pic beside it. I assume youre talking about HIS left lower leg, I think I'll change it a bit. thx. I dont agree on the comment that he's lacking a neck, I think its proportional right now.

anyway, again I appreciate the comments, but the pic will never be perfect (atleast I cant make it perfect) and I am about done working on it. What I want to know is what sand platform is better...
