I can see the guards in the bulky poses you made...I'd be interested in seeing you do some helmet designs or hats.
Some good explorations here. I'm happy to see someone trying to work out how Issib's floats would look. The text almost makes it sound like he can zoom around like a ghost. The darker silhouettes (soldiers?) look like variations on a single theme, maybe because the legs and other parts are all so similar? Anyway it's also good to see some facial explorations. It will be a very valuable asset if you can learn the structure of the human head so well as to be able to draw a really convincing basic male and basic female, and then practice varying the features in a believable way. I'll try to demonstrate that this week.
