That second book would be pretty useful for D&D, actually. I'm building my own campaign, and I plan to draw a lot of characters the players will meet. Which, by the nature of D&D, covers a lot of mythological species.
The book I got described how to better buildup the geometric forms that comprise body constructs. A lot of use of ovals and stuff, in particular. Coincidentally, I hadn't finished it yet and I also got the next book in that series, which covers scalies like your lizard character and mythological anthros too. :x
Dang, that's WAY better than I remember you doing! XD Line of action is basically the follow-through of your character's movements in correlation with their spine or center of gravity, whichever applies to the given situation. At least that's what the one book defines it as.
Yeah, the poses are looking more relaxed, so that's really good! I've been playing a lot of D&D again, and we got bonus experience points if we drew our characters, so I've been getting back into drawing lately, and should probably draw my new character next week.
It's an amazing reference! Regrettably, I've gotten just a little preoccupied with work and a few new games I got from my belated Christmas (Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold and The Legend of Legacy, both from Atlus and really intricate D&D/early-FF style RPGs). I'm only just starting the chapter on equines. By rights, I should've been further along, but from all the tips and guides it covers in the first few chapters, I've already improved drastically on how I draw: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/18764292/http://www.furaffinity.net/view/18712263/ Forgive the blurriness of that latter pic...I just got a new smartphone and it's a pain keeping my hands still... :x
Very... Well, it covers all the basics on drawing humanlike forms, character-species design, and poses and moves progressively onto more advanced things like detailing, clothing, background development, one/two/three-point perspectives and a buttload of other stuff! XD
Hi, Nofalus! It's been a while, so I thought I'd drop you a line. I've been spending a lot of time offline working lately, but also trying to develop a better art style, keeping in mind what you said before about clothing details and expressions for characters. I feel like hadn't been making much improvements on that front since I somehow became obsessed with doodling butterflies with abstract wings for almost the past two or three months solid. However, I did find something cool just today that's suddenly gotten me motivated to draw regular characters again: http://www.pokecommunity.com/picture...ictureid=81050
That doesn't surprise me... I get a lot of repair and rebuilds too that I need to work on. Flood damage accounts for most of my work, though, not windstorms. I'm not stranger to both, though.
Also, heh, I'm off today contrary to what I said, but I'm booked literally next door. My parents and I have been cleaning out my late-grandma's rental (not sure if I mentioned my sister moving out of it on us) and the landlord just brought carpet/vinyl for it last night.
That aside, I just got the new PMD game. I don't have high hopes given the progression of the series lately, but I may change my currently negative attitude towards Pokémon, which has been pretty sour for the better part of a year now... :x
Yeah, I've been booked solid for the sixth week in a row... :x I may be working Saturday for my own customer, pending payment from a previous job my dad and I did for him... It can't be helped as he's just the maintenance man for a corporation that owns the rental townhouses he works at. Corporations have their own payroll schedules and it's normally two weeks out for the one in question, but it's been longer than that already...
