I'm posting this in quite an excitable mood! I really feel I've learnt something from this drawing, which hopefully is going to affect my work from now on. Basically, the rule I've found is that as long as you get a face nailed pretty early in a drawing then you can be a lot looser with the body work.
The face is from photo reference of a model, and the body is just out of the blue. If you look at the marks they're actually pretty abstract. Value is what really defines the forms - it's pretty subtle, but I think I'm getting there...

Yesterday was the start of the London Sci-fi Festival, so I pottered over to see the costume parade which was supposed to kick everything off. The theme was 50 years of Dr. Who, and obvoiusly all the usual suspects were there - Daleks and Cybermen.
I grew up watching old Dr. Who episodes thanks to my mum. I remember it actually being pretty scary, especially the Sea Devils - a race of wierd reptile things that lived in the Earths oceans. I think that their backstory was actually pretty sad made these freaky monsters even weirder. Anyway, here's a spoiler for the episode, but it gives a good flavour of how cool it was.
There are a bunch of cool images of them, but nothing new and everyone seems to have forgotten about them. I had a go at a redesign...

L-Fix Contextual Manipulation Suit. (for invisibleness and shit)
Took longer than I planned. I wanted to have a weird colour gradient over the character, and a kind of shimmering vibe. I got tired though and quite a few areas are pretty unfinished. I'm fairly happy with the shoulders amd leg volumes. Might come back to it another time maybe.
