These look great. Like the variety in the poses. I like the cowboy (number 3) the best. Maybe it's because I'm playing Red Dead Redemption right now...anyway I'd like to see that one taken further.

I agree with eric. You've captured some nice poses... In particular 2, 14 (looks like he'll be very kool to further develop), 16, 17, 19.

I didn't like it much on 12 and 13, i think it lacks something(can't judge well right now)... but wow!! your gallery is overal gourgeus and so nice, I dig so much into 1, 4 and 20. So lovely gesture on poses! ;)

Thanks a bunch for the input guys!

 

I do agree with 12-13, lacking shape definition or readability.  For friday, I'll try to push further 1,14,19.  good night!

thanks Ben,14 got pushed a bit further !

here is an update on the silouettes,  I've messed around with the proportions a bit more than should've, especially with the legs of the characters and their feet...ugh would be much easier to draw if we didnt have feet. or maybe im just lazy...  but heres a WIP let me know what you think, thanks!

love the progress of the WIP.

14 stands out because joviality of characters are rarely showcased these days except for animation development

Hello Simon, looking great!

I was with everyone on #14, but I am starting to feel partial to #19. I like the careless attitude of carrying a flamethrower and smoking a cigar. her feet tell me she feels quite comfortable with a tank full of flammable liquid at her back. Also, is that a hint of an eyepatch? hope she didn't lose it by scratching her eye with a light-up match!

My eye always gets drawn to the flamethrower girl I love the shape of the cable and the overall attitude

Simon-

Nice characters, i'd suggest thinking about a strong light source with some of these drawings. Right now they feel like there's no real confident lighting scheme going on. Mine is just a quick adjustment, with a bit more rendering you can give this character a lot of attitude.

Levi - Thanks for the tip! will try to take one of my enviro sketches further and push the lighting further as my current sketches also have very little lighting info

lucile- Merci bcp, c'est bien gentil !

 

Ok sooooo, enviro are definately not my cup of tea : )

and Matt made it look so easy....well lack of skill and time gave this on my side.  I wanna get better at crafting buildings,  some are sketchy, others are terrible XD, crit away! 

cheers

The buildings and vehicles are looking splendid, especially the last building you did - I can completely see that being in some futuristic market-district. And don't beat yourself up about cars. Well, actually, do beat yourself up about it, but drawing and designing cars is a discipline within itself entirely, it just takes a lot of practice and investigation :]

Cameron - Thanks, yeah I'll need to draw tons of cars and buildings before I feel comfortable with those, I find it really hard to paint hard/soft mechanics surfaces.  I'll keep at it tho!

 

Here's is some exploration with custom shapes,  I am having a hard time with colors when not using any reference,  I'd love it if someone made a paintover or explained how to tweak the light or shadows so that the painting feels richer.

sorry Thomas,  one painting ended up being a lava world XD.

Let me know what you think. I'll try to make more or at least polish one of them.

more exploration of enviros, still wanting to push a better lighting, the perspective is also giving me trouble, but gladly custom shapes really helpful for creating a scene quickly.

custom brush guy:

mostly built with custom shape, then painted over to have a more rough feel

 

also pushing that monk guy thing in a different place, more religious ... yay for monks. (this is the one perspective is giving me a headache)

Wow, Simon, and you say enviros are not your cup of tea? I feel ASHAMED of my work!

I do feel the same about cars, though. Damn things! :)

Can I leave a small critique here? The first image with the monk and the guard-like folks, perspective feels a bit odd.. I struggle with that often, so I use a small tool, hehe. I left it on the Drawing resources if you wanna check it out ;)
