So David told me (which I wanted him to) that my main problems with art are

*lack of dynamic look
*characters IN their environment
*Full body dynamic action
*room for lettering for covers

He really ripped on my old Thor sketch http://reddera.deviantart.com/art/Thor-sketch-128030954
(which it needed)
So I've been wanting to do a redo and really make it cool and bring it to life.
While waiting for my boyfriend to come over I started this and finished the line work today. (10/31/09)

So this is the line work. I will be erasing the lightning lines and painting it in. There will also be a downpour of rain when I'm done. The background mountains will be foggy and the vision will be blurred by the rain the farther back you go. I have mountains draw all the way to the back to let me know to paint it and fog it out. I will have links to the references on the final color. The model is triple H.
the front rocks I looked at bracing_by_LAPIAZ http://lapiaz.deviantart.com/art/Bracing-76451247
the rest of the mountains I'll have to re-find the references.
:)

So does this show that I am at least improving on my problem areas?

Thor the character is property of MARVEL comics, this is fan art.

Hey, I recognize this work...glad you decided to re-visit it. That definitely looks more like Triple H/Thor. I was gonna comment on the fishnet texture, but seeing as how this is still early in production, I foresee many changes in its depth and shading. In other words, once I actually read through your entire intro, I realized this is "line work." It's looking great as usual, and I think you made great improvement not only on the constructive crits you mentioned, but on the composition as a whole. The downpour and special effects will make this piece really stand out if you dramatically light Thor himself with the lightning. Great model choice, cool background. I'm really looking forward to seeing how you rock this piece, Redd.


Thanks. I've been thinking about re-visiting that sketch. It had a lot of missed potential. The arms and legs are actually a sort of small plate armor, which will show with shading. I thought that someone might think it was fishnet. lol
Sorry I write long introductions, I like to be thorough and say everything I need to say about each piece.
Thank you, I think it's an improvement. but the editor and consumers opinions matter most. That is why I ask you guys what you think, and it always helps. You guys catch so much that I just miss. I love it!
As you know from the on-going Battle painting I'm working on the elements. I really hope this will turn out. Thanks for the ideas and encouragement DD, I always appreciate it.

much love

Poster: pijon Posted: 2009/11/3 2:50:37 The first one was pretty good but there really is substantial improvement here! It also sounds like you have some great ideas that should make for a very compelling image which I really look forward to seeing completed. I'm just trying to think like a comics editor here so please don't misunderstand me but considering David's previous crits, you may wish to consider things when doing this type of image like having Thor's hammer raised more up toward the skies both for the purpose of creating a more dynamic pose and implying it's connection to the environment (thunderous skies above). You might also consider a less straight on point of view to increase dynamic sense. I really think this is quite a wonderful piece and your art is terrific so if you think I'm being too nitpicky or I'm way off base in trying to make helpful suggestions, let me know and I'll be quiet.


No, no, no!
your critique is great! I actually think the same thing. I hate the strait on view and I think his hammer should be higher. :)
I can take much harsher critiques, and I prefer them. I also prefer that people think like an editor or consumer when looking at my art. such as "would you buy it? does it catch your eye, could you walk past it? etc..."
but thank you, I agree that it is an improvement. It is always my goal for each piece to be better than the last. I ALWAYS welcome the suggestions and critiques, most of the opinions I get here I can get no where else and I highly value them. Everyone has really helped me over the time I've been here. So thank you for being honnest Pijon, I appreciate it and I will fix the hammer. although I'm not sure I can change the angle at this point.
anyway, thanks again,

~Redd
