Walt-Dawg semi gangsta-like by cheeks-74 Walt-Dawg semi gangsta-like by cheeks-74
Heya, gangstas....

Lately I've been trying to focus on better volume; meaning how clothes wrap around a figure, while keeping in mind not for it to look so technical in the end result..

anyhoot...

hope y'all digs!

Nice work. Simplicity versus realism is always a tough one to balance. Looking good though :)

It's working. This is one area where I always have trouble. It's very difficult to make wrinkles appear 'accidental' or organic.
Yet, there is a certain pattern to them, when taking in gravity and stress points.

You make it seem devestatingly easy.

thank you, Ben. man, i constantly try to find new ways to apply clothing, so this one i feel was a breakthrough from drawing the same pant shapes i've been doing lately. i love to convey gravity and volume, but hard to do.

Hearing you say that you're working on anything, volume, form, anything, gives all us aspiring Art Institute kids a bright gleam of hope. Feels like all I ever do is work on things.
But I digress. Great work man. Now that you pointed it out, I really like his left leg and how the pants wrap. It flows perfectly while still retaining that baggy pants design.

I think you did a very good job at achieving the effect you wanted. Especially with the pants.

This is so sweet. I gotta be honest, your superhero stuff is super dope but I like things like these so much more. I love how you play with the shapes, and how simple and elegant you keep all of these but yet manage to make them so effective.
Definitely envy worthy, haha. :beer:

I really see some evolution in the way you said up there. The wrinkles do have more volume and weight. More "organic" than some of your other drawings, while still keeping your style. I like that.
Talking about the character in the pic (though I know it's not your main point of interest here :P), I just can't imagine this dude standing up so straight, more like curving his back to one side or something :P

Doesn't really strike as a gangster, but more like a wannabe gangster lol.

But this is nice man. I like how the hat has a slight tilt to it, he's definitely has style though

i really like the hood on his collar and his right pant leg. The pant leg (on his left leg) doesn't feel right. I think it's the tangent of the shoe into the wrinkle line

I'm with you on the "not having too much" part. I try to keep my drawings simple. What's the old saying "less is more"?

It's an enormous success! I can see the difference from the older stuff, and it doesn't cramp your style (no pun intended) at all! You've really, really gotten it right, the whole volume thing.

Great work, as always!

I dig's. Really like the way his clothes, his facial expression, and his stance all flow in this single direction. Does a good job at expressing a strong gesture.

From a designer standpoint, seeing as ACE is tagged for commenting, I think that it would even allow even more character to be expressed by having his hands out of his pockets, and maybe holding up a related item that represents him, or has a sort of gesture that further emphasizes the sorts of emotions he's got.

Lookin' real tight, though. Excellent work as usual.
