Below is my most detailed characters to date. It took several hours to think of ideas and draw, but I think it was well worth it.

I'm horrible at coloring, but I was going to give it a shot.

Practice makes perfect ;)

I still love the one u did a while ago, the one which u now have as an avatar, that would look great in 3D http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I was going to say thank you for making a male character with full parts - but then I saw the naked drawing and he is devoid. Still, at least in clothes he has the right bumps. So http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif Might not be relevant to some people, I just hate the way that some artists render characters (more particularly male) as neuters. Let's be real eh?

About the colouring MountainDewNut. You know, I always used to say that, and it was true all the while I told myself that. But then I made myself draw with coloured pencils, and was totally shocked at how much of an advancement as an artist I made by a simple tool change! Try it. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

I believe that posting a model with everything attached would be against the terms of this board... it is atleast against the terms on all the other boards that I posted it on.

Anyway I hate colored pencils mainly because they leave those 'holes' in the drawing, either that or I was using too cheep of pencils. My friend has some nice markers and I was thinking about picking that up, but I'll have to save up for those.

I'm not sure what you mean about the holes??? Um, could be cheap pencils. Try water soluble ones, they are much softer, and easier to blend.

...that would be why, I wasn't using soft enough pencils. I'm getting paid today, so maybe I'll stop by an art store and check them out.
