you know, now that you've gotten alot better, i would love a marvel show done in your style.....
I've been workingon the mythology characters a little bit and here is my first sketch of Anansi.
Ooohhh. Nice one.
keep it up psycho!
Here is Odin. Or Óðinn as he is called in the old Norse language which is almost extinct but largely survived in my native language, Icelandic.
He is seen with his two ravens Huginn and Muninn.
In almost every depiction I have seen of Odin he is portrayed as a pretty frail looking old man, and I decided to deviate from that quite a bit as you can see.
cool new pics man
Awesome. I, personally, have always envisioned Odin as being ripped and slightly overweight. Like the build you drew right there.
Thanks, yeah I really felt like he should be the kind of guy that looked like he gained his muscles from physical labour, not the kind you do in a gym to get ripped but more the kind you get from power lifting. And so a wide and big build was in order to make that more obvious and through the clothes to make him look powerful, even though he is kinda past his prime.
PS. I was gonna draw his wolves behind him but they didnt turn out too good so I decided to just skip it.
you focus too much on the characters and not enough on the figures themselves. copying from comic books and cartoons have brought you this far, but they are not academic studies. nude figures will help you to improve vastly. i'm talking night and day difference. your figures are very flat -- with no volume or depth. even a flat drawing after studying anatomy will still imply a certain depth.
that's the best advice i have for anyone who draws superhero pin-ups.
Thank you darwinwins. This is very good advice and believe me, I will put it to good use and try to improve myself.
I like you
umm... shouldnt Anansi be african american?
No. He should just be African
o duh.. my bad haha i was tryin to be politically correct and just messed myself
Yeah. I did kind of notice Anansi's lack of blackness.
Sorry about that guys, I guess it somehow just slipped my mind.
Hello everyone. I have barely drawn a thing over these last two weeks, I had exams at school and then I went straight to a new job but here are a few little drawings of mine.
This one I did the other night while watching Escape from L.A.
And here is the first sketch of my June Fan Art Contest entry.
Plus: The Final Version of my entry for last months contest.
Still wrong there buddy. Not everyone in Africa is black (ie Egyptians).
Anansi... is black.
Still a cool drawing. Can't wait to see that Superman pic finished.
He should still be African, though.
Very nice pics man
Well, spideyboy said he should be african-american (which means american but of african decent, not black in general) so I corrected him by saying he should be african only. You're talking about skin color. It's different.
I agree, I was just pointing out that describing a black person's race as African is too broad because it includes people other than black people.
The problem is there isn't really words that literally mean what people associate them with. Curse you connotations!
Do you mean Like Charlize theron?
