LoL. You know how it is. Oddly foreshortened limbs, or torsos, are much harder to get right than a slightly dislocated wrist or arm! And, you tend to look for and notice the things you are most concerned about... and for me, good figure perspective is high on my list right now. Tomorrow, it will be backgrounds, which is something else you already do very well. It makes you wonder, what will I be focusing on a year from now, in five, ten? I love it, the learning never really ends.
thats a good point. While I still focus on figure structure, I do find myself taking it for granted at times. And then ninja's wrists get dislocated and no one's happy. I find Im more concerned with rendering and lighting lately, and I have to keep myself reminded of getting my proper anatomy down before I rush on to do the rendering. 5 years ago I was just trying to draw hands right or tell a clear story.
yeah still getting the hang of it. there were a few times where I put down the color and wished I could instantly take it back. But its cool because it makes you work with it and sometimes it comes out better than i planned.
thanks man, yeah, just copic markers. Maybe some of that is how I scanned it in, but I take a pretty layered approach to how I render it. Which would be simlar to a traditional watercolor process. So that could be some of it aswell.
