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.

**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:

This is a great reference for drawing Piccolo! I love him but so frustrating to work out coz of all his lines. Great picture :D

Thanks! I hope it is helpful to people. I hate drawing him too! I understand why he always drawn in his white cape with his arms folded. They should have gave him long sleeves too. :D

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?

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...

Thank you for all the helpful links and suggestions. I do want to revisit this one when I have the time and make some corrections. Or try again from scratch maybe. And maybe I'll do a full body one for my own reference and for the fangirls. :D

Thanks again! :hug:

Oh boy, well your anatomy is a good 1000times better then mine... Honestly this is gorgeous. And hilarious. Love the butt being erased XD
It all looks very natural and smooth. I think that the time you spend on your art really pays off.

Firstly, it is a fantastic drawing and yes it's also very funny: D but there arr a little thing you forgot to draw ... you know he have the red stripes around the pink muscles ... there is also one like that under the chest, that just before his skin starts to get all the stripes ... it is the red line that separates the two different types of skin ... it also runs along the back

Here a like to a picture from the first world tournament where you meet Piccolo first time where you have to fight with Goku... Hope you can use it :D

Usually his arm "pads". ??? I don't typically draw him naked, but I do draw his arms and I have a tough time figuring out how to place them around his arm muscles. Also I've drawn OC Namekian females so the mid-section/back side are also something I wonder if I'm doing right.

They look like they're in accurate places to me.

I'm sure they're just like how human muscles are but made up of different kind of skin. I hope that made sense, or I didn't repeat something you already knew .w.

The thing is, I do know that, but trying to draw it and make it look good is a different thing altogether. You know? :)
