Annoyed Namekian Figure Study 1 by CRComics Annoyed Namekian Figure Study 1 by CRComics
This started out as a serious practice of Namekian anatomy (because they are hard as heck to draw). Then the rest happened. Oh yeah, like I have any control over it. Psh! Also it's not a sketchbook, it's all Photoshop but I bet you knew that. Psh!

**Artist Critique: For serious. I struggle with drawing Piccolo. Maybe you think I don't , but the amount of time I spend on his anatomy drives me nuts, so I wanted practice. I would appreciate just feedback about my anatomical inaccuracies, because I'm sure I screwed something up. Just technical stuff, not conceptual. Telling me I'm not funny isn't helpful. Because I AM FUNNY DAMN IT. No seriously just the anatomy stuff, kthnxbye. :heart:

Awesome, you really did well on the anatomy. Piccolo is my fav. Oh and you did pretty good on the expression too. ^_^

Charity! You know that I am a major fan of your work. I think you have a unique style that radiates your own great personality and therefore should be allowed artistic licence when drawing Dragon Ball Z.

That being said, if you really want to improve the "anatomical inaccuracies", here are a few suggestions. I apologize if I come across as harsh in any way, and just remember that I love your work as it is.

The Skull: The back should protrude just a little higher. Every official picture of Piccolo, (and Dende as he gets older), shows them like this. Perhaps it's because they have larger brains?
Reference -

Patches: I agree with the original poster who implied that they should coincide with muscle placement. Deltoid/shoulder, Biceps and Triceps... and I'm not entirely sure about below the elbow on that, sorry!

Patch Lining: I think they should be... a little thicker? I'm not entirely sure about that; and, maybe there should be a lining dividing his chest from his abdomen. The reference Slayhim gave you is good.

Finally, whatever you decide to change or keep, might I suggest making a personal reference sheet? This way, you can just pop back to that to make sure each drawing is the way you want it to be. XxdhxX did the same a few years back and even published it: [link]

Now, I personally don't think the patches and linings need so much detail on the backside but that's just me. It's not like we ever see that much in the show anyway; and, if Piccolo's so uptight about it, don't publish it. Although, I'm certain a few fans would love to see...
