If you have any tips for me, I would like to hear them. I want to get better.
My tip would be on proportions...you seem pretty good at shading to me, much better than a lot of people that I know and have taught (most of them never even get to shading, lol). I personally suck at perspective, T_T but I'm trying to work on it, heh heh. These are the Golden Rules of Proportion, which are also the things that are never written down anywhere, to my great frustration when I was still trying to figure them out, so I'm giving them to you the easy way;
People in general....
*picture the head as an up-side-down egg...oddly enough, that is what they look like.
*should be 7-7 1/2 heads tall....(unless your drawing superhero muscle man, then he's 9, and looks like he has a ridiculously small head, so we can all laugh)*frowns at Marvel and DC comics*
*legs should be about 4 heads tall, the torso will fill in the rest of the space.
*the ends of the hands should reach down to mid-thigh.
*look at a bit of muscle/skeletal structure, it helps loads..
On a guy....
*Shoulders should be about 2 1/2-3 times the width of the head, a little less (once again, if your drawing superhero muscle man....its 5. really people, who actually looks like that?)*glares at said comic companies*
*not a tube, guys generally have narrow waists
On a girl....
*shoulders about 2 times the width of the head
*curves, curves, curves. put please, not exaggerated *looks at X-men comics and weeps, why the **** would any girl actually WEAR that in COMBAT?*
*and always remember, girls have muscle too ^_^....especially Sarah Conner!
only thing I would do aside from that is make the cross part on the visor narrower and curved....keep it up, your doing great!
