Character: Kalem

Hey Folks

I just finished my third concept. I know i should have been way bether for a third one, but hey, not everyone has as good skills as the people on these forums do

His name is Kalem, a 28 year old thief/assasin with some bad attitude. He is a chaotic evil kind of person.

The anatomy’s visibility is enhanced, not the proportions.

Please give some good and harsch comment on him, I am no baby anymore.

uhm, i dont know, i think it really looks just like your two other drawings...

as for crits, the shading is kinda weird... the way you blend the lines on both sides doesnt give a very good or realistic effect...

Hey

Well, because i draw them without hair, they may look the same. maybe i draw them to standard. PLease give comment about that.

About the shading, i am about to commit suicide because i can't get it right. Does anybody have some good tips, and even bether, some good reference pic's for me. That would help me out, because the shading won't improve, sigh..... i am truly hopeless..

you got a mirror? thats a good reference to start with . Theres no better model than reallife.

I do like that shading tough, it looks weird, but gives a certain athmosphere.

And the character doesnt look evil at all :/ afaik. he looks more sad and kind to me.

evil characters tend to have evil characterics .you could look some stuff in http://www.deviantart.com/ .Its not completely bad thing to learn from others. Find a nice picture and replicate it. Just dont release as it your own. It all gets buried to your conciousnes and comes up as you do your own stuff.

Hey

Well, i draw them with no expression, so he looks like he is staring. BTW, assasin's don't have to look strong, they just kill

About the shading, does anybody have some good shaded pic's for me, so i can learn form them, because my shading sucks right now.

Please give comment's and keep'm posting

Heye Max4D, I don't think your shading suck it's just kinda weird but if it's your style, keep it! One thing I don't like is his neck and neck bone on the side pcik...it looks a bit strange.

Hey

Thx for the comment Cycone, i will consider it very well. About the shading, well, it's my own style, but it has a long way to go and has to be perfected, that i am sure of. I think it will take me another3 to 4 character's before it will be very good...

Please keep posting them

now i remember... that style is used in many old games... where they just had few colors to go with... very retro.

Hey

Micheal_Hell: well, it's not my style actually, i am trying to make realistic shadings to a model, and these are actually my experiments. That's because i am very new to drwaing and shading
