90 mins: Superhero Torso by Bambs79 90 mins: Superhero Torso by Bambs79
Well, this was 90 minutes of work. Bummer.

Trying to suss out anatomy and foreshortening is not as easy as I was hoping. It's difficult to explain but drawing comic art/anatomy isn't the same as drawing from reference - it's much more stylised and dynamic. When I draw something from reference it often lacks the kind of 'impact' I feel my last 3 deviations have. But after all, these are all about the practice so I'm hopefully learning every time I do something like this - which is what I want!

Will likely turn it into something finished at a later date!

I understand what you mean about the difference! I often use reference for a second, refined version of a sketch, and it often looks static and forced (as opposed to dynamic and Off Model)

Thanks for writing. Yeah, I think that comic figures are much more 'stylistic' or 'exaggerated' than I at first realised. I believe that a lot of us are still struggling to get better at anatomy and making it look correct when a number of great comic artists out there are able to exaggerate/caricature anatomy and make it work even better. At the moment I'm really into artists like Mike Mignola, James Harren, Cliff Rathburn and Ryan Ottley. I'm forever just studying their comics and trying to work out what they do and apply it my style of drawing.

Thanks, yeah, I kinda have a thing for extreme foreshortening, I think it really helps a pic look more dynamic so this was a bit of practice. :w00t:

I've just begun playing around with the comic/graphic style

It's pretty cool, the only trouble I have is that there are so many awesome comic artists out there to be inspired by!
