  • The HULK

    Hey everyone! I've been swamped in overlapping deadlines as of late, but today I decided to do a sketch of the Hulk! So, here it is!

    You can also buy it from here: http://www.angelaroy.ca/jar/ws/store.html

    And you can watch it being drawn here, on my USTREAM channel!: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/jonathanrector

    Hey, Jar! I thought I might leave you some comments/critiques in the form of the GOOD, the BAD, and the UGLY. I hope this will prove helpful.

    THE GOOD: Nice action! Dynamic pose! Good composition! Good line work! The Hulk's expression of anger is very good too! It's good to see you using some solid black shadows. The solid blacks always help to make characters feel dimensional, and add weight and presence to massive characters like the Hulk.

    THE BAD: You didn't show Hulk's hands or feet anywhere. Not a single fist, finger or toe is present in your drawing. Viewers often find figures drawn without hands and feet to be a little awkward and strange, and I have to concur with that. If just one hand was visible, that would have probably been enough to satisfy viewers, while adding more credibility to your drawing. As it looks now, it kind of looks like you wanted to avoid having to draw hands and feet, and that's not the impression you want to leave your audience with, so next time I recommend trying to get some hands in the shot, at least.

    You probably need to spot a little more black on Hulk's head in order to make the lighting more consistent. I recommend a bit of a shadow under Hulk's right cheek bone, or around his eyes, which probably would be in shadow because of his thick brow.

    THE UGLY: Hulk's gimpy, left leg. Since you haven't shown any indication of Hulk's lower leg or foot in conjunction with his thigh, it makes for some visual weirdness. It looks sort of like Hulk has an amputated left leg! Just be careful about things like that, Jar. It's easy to confuse viewers, so it's best to show as much of the figure as you can, whenever you can, and to avoid any sort of ambiguity in the figure work. Sure--artists on PJ know you mean for the Hulk's lower leg to be hidden behind his thigh because we've seen enough of this type of hidden foreshortening to go along with it, but that doesn't make it look any less awkward and unnatural. Do your best to avoid drawing legs that have the amputee look to them. Just adding in a foot shape behind the leg would be enough to give the viewer the necessary visual information. Think about that for next time.

    As always it's fun to see you post work on PJ. I'm a sucker for a good Hulk drawing, and I love that you gave him the massive size that ol' Greenskins deserves. Hope those comments help.

    Take care,
    Loston

          All of Loston's crits are dead-on and I'll add again that you seem to like to make your figures' upper bodies so humongous that it's really quite ridiculous. In this case, even with someone as bulky as the Hulk, you've made his upper body look like a literal balloon. You render well, that's a fact, and the energy you put into your pieces is always great. But your actual figure work leaves a lot to be desired.
          Money can't buy you happiness, but it will pay for the search.

            Honestly, not one of your better works Jar. His body looks like a big round inflated baloon- no muscularity there. Also, the head doesn't look right, as in, looking how the Hulk is classically portrayed- wide head to match his huge bone structure and size, bowl hair cut, etc. And everything Bruce lee said is right on as well. You have some good skills though- just correct a few mistakes and this could be a good piece.

                This looks remarkably like an image Neil Edwards did for me in Leeds last year.
