it's cool to see these studies, but it looks like you might be coming up with a lot of it from your head- like the faces.
None of my stuff is directly referenced -- And I want to say I realise that it is probably the worst thing to do ever when doing anatomical studies etc, and I will most definitely suffer for it in the long run. It's not like I don't see the point of studying realism and drawing (literally) off it, but I don't aim to imitate realism or base my works in the structural sense, with my general art direction, I want to deal in the more conceptual side of things. So as long as general 'details' of the works aren't too far out, like the audience being able to tell that that stick figure is representative of a human, then mission accomplished.
TL;DR: It's not referenced to real stuff because I don't aim for it to be - and I suck cock because of it.
i also think you should do some more studying of foreshortening.
Very much agreed.
it's all looking good though, keep it up.
Aaaaaand because I don't like posting in my own thread without an art attachment, here's something nonsensical.
