Action Pose Using Foreshortening  by markcrilley Action Pose Using Foreshortening  by markcrilley
Hey friends! Sorry it's been a craaaaazy long time since I uploaded anything here at DA; things got very busy with all the books and videos and I had to take a prolonged break to balance things out. I'm hoping to get back into adding things to my gallery, though, so watch this space!

This illustration is from my latest YouTube video, which you can see here: 

Time-lapse version: youtu.be/y9cWwA3eS_A
Full-length narrated version: youtu.be/6eEtmQc5Eq0

Thanks for your patience, everyone-- I wouldn't blame you for thinking I'd totally given up on DeviantArt. Well, that is definitely not the case! Looking forward to sharing things with you much more consistently in the days and weeks ahead.

All my best,

Mark

Always a delight, and when all is quiet, I imagine good things but happening someplace else. How this picture is both crisp and shaded is amazing.

It's great to see you back. You always do great with foreshortening, and I love the slightly cartoony yet realistic way you drew it.

Nice detail! Question, though - in this image, is he grasping for a rope dangling near him, or is he jumping and trying to catch the rope? Because the position of the feet make me think he's standing on something as he's doing this, perhaps having JUST turned around.

Great job - you sure know your stuff. And I agree with Squareing off the tips of the fingers. That's suitable for male hands.
