I did not get as much character jamming as I wanted to in, but I did get a inspiration board created and arranged ((that was more work then I thought, but totally worth it)) and these body type studies down for Xan :D I’m not sure they’re as exaggerated as I want yet, but I am definitely heading in the right direction.
Hey there guys, long time no upload. I am really bad at keeping up on trying to upload daily.
I’m currently really dissatisfied with a lot of stuff with my art. it was kinda triggered by my own airheadedness. I accidentally overwrote the Xantos painting while trying to fix some things on it, so it no longer exists in its painted form. so I am taking this opportunity of dissatisfaction to experiment.
and experiment I have.
last night, after hitting my little artistic self against a metaphorical wall so to speak, I broke through how to sketch in more stylized anatomy without the awkwardness I usually have. this stylized approach, which broke the figures into easier to manage shapes has allowed me to experiment with body types I was having severe issue with before.
this seemingly has also corrected my bad habit of huge ass long as hell legs. while these doodles might be simplistic, they opened the door to a lot more dynamic and varied figures for me :D
