Jolly Red Giant colored by cheeks-74 Jolly Red Giant colored by cheeks-74
Heya, peeps and peepettes! Wowsas.... it's been a minute since a finished piece, huh? My brain feels "blah", and neglected with drawing designs for weeks, so I had to get some fun-time in, ya know? I didn't want to catch some z's until the green goliath was put to rest.

My objective with this piece was to push shape and try to add more angles into the anatomy, while finding a balance with curves and angles.

Hope y'all digs!

My man, I keep coming back to this image... and I was trying to figure out what sets you apart from the rest.... definitely the stylized approach, but you really got the movement and flow down, and this piece is phenom, as a book once told me about applied force to directional force... you got it perfectly.

First off: he's green
second: he ain't jolly, that's the Incredible Hulk, for Pete's sake!

As much a fan I am of your work Sean, I'm just not feelin this hulk for some reason.

The pose doesn't feel as dynamic and the foreshortening needs to be stronger.

Your lines and style are always top notch.

I guess it's his head, hands and feet that are throwing me off. I'm not sure. He kinda looks like the Hulk. Same colors. Same pants. Hmm...

Man, it is definitely the face and head. My eye keeps being drawn towards the head. Could be the shape of his cheekbones and jaw. Not enough brute looking forehead.

I'm sorry man. Hope you don't take it personal...but, since you had "Advanced Critique Encouraged" enabled...I thought that I could share my honest opinion as constructively as I could.

fantastic. i like the little extra andgles you put in. but i still love it when you draw people and they look like toys. I dig your work cause it has this "pop" that you dont see too often.

I think you nailed it man. His face doesn't look very 'hulk-ish' (its too pointy) but as for everything else you totally nailed it. The movement and energy in this peice is fantastic.

Major props.
