Wow, its been quite a while. I really think this will present some of the more challenging renditions of this iconic figure.
Let me throw in a little something I threw together to get my mind in the frame of thought.

Ah, no critique?
Here is the first stage of the piece.

Looking good! I'd make his hammer bigger. The flow of his fur looks really good. Hands need to be a little larger. Keep it up!

Thanks for the comment.
I wasn't happy with much of the previous concept such as composure and even the angle. So I've decided to change things a bit. Tell me what you think so far.
I wanted something that was a bit heavy on composure. I made a save before the yeti because i am unsure if he may be too big in the picture. He is massive and I really want to show how big his scale is in comparison to a human.
The one thing i want to correct is the girl's right leg. something went a little off there.

I think it's the way how the ass is facing and how the knee is bent. Try to be in that pose and see if it's natural.
Anyway, is that a DILDO THERE?!!!

Christ. It was supposed to be an oxygen bottle and hose, but looks likes it got some weird impressions. I decided to go with a simpler pose. Lets get comments in her so i can focus on the yeti this rounds since he is supposed to be the center piece.

Try to break down into simpler shape wargrafix. You need some perspective understanding tho. Then if you know the anatomy structure, you can simple draw without a reference, not saying that you shouldn't.
I did some overpaint, not sure what's her expression. And of course I didn't construct it from simpler form, I just draw on top first. We have the ability to judge whether things are going right or wrong, just feel it. When you make mistakes, no matter how long you spend on it, change it. Otherwise you'll screw your judgment. Hope it helps.

Ah, thank you. Piece of her leg structure is buried in the snow, so what is seen is not the whole hip and legs. I agree with the hand placement. The jacket is also influencing the overall shape because its not completely fitted. I need to better way to show that snow is blocking the lower half.
Here is an adjustment. Better?

Lol sorry, it's always difficult to translate one's vision to another. They way I imagine this thing is going is that the female slides down on an icy surface (that's the reason I'm giving her a 'pick axe'). Otherwise how could she fall on snow like that?
I understand how the clothes are thick, just showing you the breakdown, as the proportion is a bit weird,. It's also better to reveal partial of the face than to see the back of her head I suppose? The ass is still looking weird consider how the leg placement is.
Well just stating my opinion, don't take it too hard.

No, no, critique is a good thing because, like the hand and arm thing, there may be issues that i may have missed.
1) The pic axe was intentional merely as a defensive measure. Although, i catch what you are saying. The sweet part of the technique is that nothing is set in stone. The brushes combo i use in painter allow me to make dramatic changes without having to impact too many things. Everything is done on a single canvas. no layers
2) I took a few liberties with the anatomy to give it a more stressed state. I decided not to show the face of the girl because the star in this pic is the Yeti. While she is in the foreground, the anonymity of the girl helps to suggest that its an event which is completely unexpected.
As for the yeti, or painting style, what's your perspective?

The yeti is coming out nice, the other shoulder is a little off but it's still rough, so I know you are not complete with that. :) But of course you can try to add some visual design, stylize your yeti and what not. It's good to come up with fresh design.
Majorly, most are still in black and white, are you trying to keep it that way?
16-02-2010, 02:41 PM
For the yeti, i left it in there for critique purpose. If the bulky one looks better then all i have to do is add mass to the other shoulder. Its going to incorporate some elements from the second concept.
I was thinking of that, the color. Aside from her hair, I was thinking of keeping her mostly black/gray. I still have to do the shoes, and I'm dreading that, lol.
For the Yeti, i may experiment with the blue for the skin and if that doesn't work, try for blue skies to balance out the color. The next stage has to be background, and I want to do something interesting, and may use reference material for mountains perhaps?
One problem i'm facing is my laptop from which I'm working on is hitting its limit due to image size and res. Hint: 4960 * 3425.

You can work with small resolution first, as I did. Then come to finalizing, only you increase the resolution. well still depend entirely with your workflow.

I use to, but up-resing tend not to work out very well sometimes. Plus, sometimes i like to really zoom in and work on the details.

Nice angle :).
I think the upper leg (of the two) needs to be a bit straightened at the end. Right now it is a bit curvy...

Thank you. I am aware that she needs fixing. I took some time to work on backgrounds and the yeti. Looking forward to some interesting comments

I actually think you should have kept him diffuse with snow flowing in front of him, kind of dark and unsettling...
23-02-2010, 09:46 PM
Thanks. Yeah, actually I'm going back with that. I just wanted to see how it would look. I'm not entirely happy with the mountain. If tonight I can't fix it, I'm axing it from the scene.

Tried as I might, I could not find the balance with the piece. So I went to one of the earlier concepts. I think this one looks a bit better. And I think the girl's anatomy might be a better here. Pun intended; she was a pain in the ass.
