Tag Archives: Foreshortening

No, todavía no nos hemos aburrido de dibujar superhéroes. Esta semana Santi sacó a Aquaman contra la Antorcha Humana y hoy contraataco con, ni más ni menos que La Cosa del Pantano. Para quienes no lo sepan la Cosa del pantano es más bien una conciencia incorpórea que puede trasplantarse a cualquier ser vivo vegetal. Eso hace que los ataques físicos sirvan de poco contra ello y hace que mole mucho. 

Sigo insistiendo en el speed-painting. Hay partes de Swampy que me dan esperanzas de cara al futuro.

¡Cuidado Aquaman, que vamos a por ti!

Nope, we’re not yet bored of the superhero game. Earlier this week Santi pulled Aquaman against the Human Torch and today I’m getting back at him with the Swamp Thing. The Swamp Thing, sweet little creature, is more of a bodyless consciousness that can trasplant itself into any vegetal lifeform. He is therefore super cool and almost invulnerable to physical attacks.

I keep insisting in painting. I think I might be starting to figure out how to do it. Some pieces of Swampy give me hope for the future.

Watch your back, Aquaman!

In previous rounds of the Battle:

#1 Jubilee

#2 The Human Torch



Some practice. I love the aesthetics of the Japanese drums playing.




I know this is very boring stuff to see. That’s why I don’t generally post much from my daily practice in here, because all the effort behind awesomeness has no glamour at all. But on the other hand, this is a blog about how I make it to pro level at drawing, so I better not be fooling you, and show you how it is I’m actually doing it.

After the first three people from the 50 people thing, it was already clear that the most dramatical mistakes in them were the legs. So it should be the first thing to improve before continuing with those 47 characters left. And here you have, 42 pairs of legs from this evening.

I, btw, hate. Feet. The. Most.

#3 is done, this one was a long one. Wichita (Emma Stone), from Zombieland!

In the finishing process the perspective didn’t come out so good. I can manage foreshortening now, in anatomy schemes and with strict follow up of photoreference.

In this case, photoreferences were all partial, like in, “how does one hold a weapon leaning it on his shoulder?”, “how do legs look like in this kind of poses?”, but I didn’t have anything for this particular pose with this particular angle. Plus, she, of course, doesn’t quite look like Emma Stone, I know. xDD

I’m quite satisfied anyway. This one was a challenge. So much to learn!

You can find the rest of the submissions for the 50 people project in the 50×5 category.

Right now I’m just so proud of myself that I had to share it…


Bets on who’s my choice for #3? Someone?

The 50×5 project

Because one is not born into Awesome. One grows into Awesome.

Senshistock @ has a wonderful folder with foreshortening and perspective poses, which I’ve been using lately.
