Rough Models

These are by no means final. I'm still playing with his shapes ... Hes a variation of the Sept. 19th post...


I'm awful at environmental sketches and compositions... Here's a shot at a pretty simple uhh..ummm, well, shot.
Not thrilled about the pofile...
Hopefully it'll work itself out.
I might of gotten a little outta control on the neck
of some of these. Just wanted to keep them loose.

fantastic prelims,man...if you're havin trouble with her profile try squaring her chin and jaw JUST a TAD...so it doesn't look like she had a no-jaw...we've all seen those;) try it...it may work may not...but the shape and proportion on that cowboy are stunning...bold AND beautiful...

I like those designs....I'm not so interested in your dude's neck.....maybe If I look at it more, it'll become pleasing...


You're girl is great! I picture her profile to curve in where the bridge of her nose is.

I think McGee looks great with the barrel chest. That upside down lightbulb body. I wouldn't angularize it. I really like the contrasted shapes where the neck and body meet. But he's a bit more angular overall so maybe consistency is better...

Glad to be of no help -

Love the 3/4 sketch of your girlie's head. And in profile yeah a baby jaw might help, but personally I love flat shapes so keepin' her noggin a ball makes me happy anyway...

Jeff Williams said...

These are great Javi. Nicely done. I love McGee.

Kevin Barber said...

Really nice poses on the girly.I especially like the limp way she's holding the gun downwards. You can feel the weight of it.
