That's a very strange anatomy, her arms are pretty muscled, but the blade bone is visible as if there was nearly no muscle there
she's quite manly and pretty strange around the waist, but remembering your old work I assume that's just an elementy of style with them not being exactly human
is that a failed/unfinished attempt at earrings I see there?
The keys look ok as they are now to my eyes.

Drawing arms is easy because I can look at my arms. Back is not so easy, I can't look at my back and google images is not so helpful. I just do what I can.

The problem is that that, like most bodybuilder photos, is a posing shot, and the muscles look different than normal. It's kind of like how most portraits are not useful references because everyone is smiling.

I'm not saying there are no good references, just that I haven't come across one. Back also has the problem that there are not as many obvious landmarks (pectorals, abs, etc.) as the front.

I haven't given up on this. This is for the alternate ending of Trinity. The scale on this one is a bit different, so the lines may turn out looking too thick.

You could work more on his paws. The rest - overall silhouetee, the pose and the face look pretty good for me. Your artwork becomes more and more interesting.

Aww! :)


I agree with Mefisto on the dog: overall it looks good, but the paws lack definition. Canines have that classic four-pad whatsit-thingy on their feet, so you can try adding small bumps to show this. Also, dog claws can grow rather long if left unclipped, so whether or not you want this dog to be perfectly groomed or not, you might want to show the claws slightly.

Thanks. Yeah, I didn't spend enough time on the paws, I'll fix that. But now I've got another dog.

[non_artist_comment]
The dog's back looks weird to me, as if his rear legs are twice as long as the forelegs. And something with the perspective is bothering me; I can't define it though.
Besides, its face looks too "wooden", I think. Especially the eyes should be more elaborated IMO.

:( It broke its leg.

I don't know if you meant for it to look like that, but well, it does.

With the general stance, implied tail between the legs and the downward tilting head, the way the dog is holding it's front leg makes it look like the leg or paw is injured and the dog is avoiding putting its weight on it.

Useful for when you find one of these guys as the only survivor of another company or something, but not when most dog dialogue is likely to be "Grrrrrr... RAWRF RAWRF!!!" or somesuch. One would expect a war dog to hold a more aggressive pose.
