Oi!

Some productive (hopefully) criticism here...the piece looks pretty cool, good gesture, attitude, and the colouring is very well done...I just have a slight problem with some of the anatomy and interior line work. His proportions are a little overexaggerated...he''s over 10 heads high, which shames even Howard Chaykin''s old cyclopean figures, and some of the musculature is off. Most noticable are his tiny pectorals, with a chest that small he could look as menacing as he wanted, but he''d have trouble doing a single push-up. His abs are also a tad squarish.

In way of line work, it appears to have been inked with a tech pen of some kind, and the line work is inert. It''s relying too heavily on the colouring to make it pop. I''d suggest using a quill, or even multiple sized Rapidographs to bulk up some of the lines and add some depth.

Well, that''s my two cents! I better get back to animating those sprites for you...

First Impression: Siiiiiiiiick! I like.

Looking a bit deeper--I agree with nvision about the chest; it looks under proportioned and slightly too high.

I don''t really like the toenails.

Other than that it is a pretty sweet drawing.

The Tyr project is here.

Hi Guys,

thanx for the feedback.

Ian, I see what you mean about the chest. In fact I think we a have a version without that because it was added in during the coloring phase. Also about his tallness, yes Geo was designed to be the tallest of the 4 heirs. Math is 1 1/2 heads taller than annex if that gives any marker to this guy’s size

Thanks again, I''ll pass your feedback on to the team.

Just clarifying on the height issue...even if Geo is several heads taller than Math, the "heads-high" thing refers to the ratio of Geo's head in proportion to his own body. The "ideal" figure is 8 to 8 1/2 heads high (real people range 6-7), meaning the body from head to toe is that many times the height of the head. The bottom of the chest drops in about 1 head height below the chin, one more to the navel and one more head down to the crotch (1/3 longer in the back, two heads from the crotch to the knee, two to the ankle, and a half length for the foot.

So, basically, Geo's head looks too small on his body (rather like Strong Guy from X-Factor)...

I think the chest is almost there for the angle that his posture is in though. He''s flexing IN his chest not poofing it out like you''d expect one to do.
