    I went back to drawing/painting classical mythology, even if just for a moment.

    I need to branch out into more demanding themes before I could do that - I still have vehicles, dinamic poses and battlefields left to learn, among other things. :D

    I was considering making one now that I have a new computer but I got a buggy old tablet and need to get a new controller for games.

    It really pains me how you're only a hobbyist and lesser artists have jobs.

    Well, then again, If I were to be honest, the arm really could have been drawn better, and it's debatable if the black rip in space is stylistic or clashes badly with the rest of your background.

    But your work is definitely one of my favorite art styles to witness.

    Some character/species design stuff, at the moment I have just sketches to show.
    Also some pondering about styles/species/design, for the sake of a brief rant.


    I've been having problems with making my style more simple, I tend to get pulled back to semi-realism constantly but I've finally managed to find a simpler style I'm pretty comfortable with, but I'd like to get opinions and possible suggestions on it at some point. The themes of the comic are going to be kind of dark, sometimes gruesome, but I rooted for a simple yet rough styles. The roughness comes with inking.
    Here's the most important characters for the first chapter(s), first one being the main character.
    The last two will still get changed a lot because I haven't figured how I want to draw more feminine figures for this and I don't know if I want them to have boobs or not.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And here's a sta.sh folder with more sketches, some other characters and attempts with slightly different styles.
    Some of them are from last year.

    I have some uncertainty with their species or the design of it - I wanted to make them human-like but not too human-like because I don't want to seemingly directly compare and mirror real life things, and I want to make it clearer that the world the comic happens in isn't ours, even though it's very similar to it (in beginning of 1900's-ish). For example, there's three plus different breeds/races and some tension between them and that's at some points an important element in the story and character relations. And their recent history deals with war and so.
    But now I'm just overcoming my issues with them being "too furry", although they're not anthros but their own species and not based on any animal (I just call them trolls because the first inspiration for the comic came from one of the moomin comic albums).

    Probably going to post more about these soon.

    You know, I don't think anybody's ever going to have any trouble in realizing that this is a different world.

    Whether or not the females have boobs depends on how the species reproduces. They look mammalian, and if they reproduce in a mammalian way, then it's fine if you decide to slap some titties on them.

    Yeah, I should've actually specified that's why I won't make them human.

    They're mammals so it's either or, I'll just draw them a bunch and see what looks alright.

    Well I'm just saying, most mammals have mammary glands, and therefore breastfeed. So it's not like it'd be that much of a stretch of logic or an absolute descent into furry degeneracy if you did decide to give them breasts. But, if you leave out boobs, then it can streamline their design and open interesting avenues for how they reproduce and care for their young.

    If you're looking to make it more dark, id suggest more sharp lines/edges and less soft/round.

    I've considered both, I'll still have to do some experimenting. If I color this I can use colors to alter the feeling without having to go too sharp or too round and accidentally making the characters out of place for certain scenes, but keeping it black and white would help giving it a noir-ish touch. My inking is probably going to make the style somewhat rough as well.
    It's a detective story so different characters at least are going to get misleading traits.

    Continuing working on character designs for the game, now that my script is in relatively good shape.

    Trying to figure out design and anatomy for Brr specifically - I'm not sure what I want to make of it but this is one possible idea.

    Still plenty to fix;

    + a shitty walking cycle I didn't bother to fix yet and forgot to resize
    [​IMG]
    Sketching walking and running cycles of him, going to try a little different gaits with shorter and longer limbs.
    He has sort of slouched shoulders from his head and neck being too heavy and big for his body as a pup,
    but he can stand straight too so I might end up making walking and running cycles with both slouched and straight posture.

    Tips and stuff about animation welcome.

    My only thing is that it seems like the legs are a little stunted in the front when compared to the reference sheet, but that really has nothing to do with the animation as it is now.

    These look neat, but here is an advice:

    When drawing ellipses - especially those heavily flattened - it is best to place the starting/ending point of a drawing line on the minor axis instead of the major one. This ensures that the tightest curves will be drawn in a single move.

    Yeah I'm actually trying out different lengths for his legs so his design might change slightly with that.

    Another thing to note , and in particular with the red cup next to the martini glass, is the perspective of the top (the lip of the cup) and the base (bottom of the cup). I always found it helpful to draw your circle/oval/etc the exact same for top and bottom so that the angle of the top matches the bottom. Your martini glass does that pretty well, but the red cup is a little wonky.

    The far left one the top and the bottom are opposite to one another. I redlined your image to give a better example of what I meant but for some reason it's not allowing me to upload any images right now.

    Thank you. Yeah the drinks were from random google searches of drinks which I forgot to add in as my keyboard crap out on me last night. It was just my random placement of the sketches. Sorry for the confusion. But I'll keep that in mind as well next time.
