all-new, kinda-different ArtBeta!

Hello artbeta members!

Our dearly loved mod fiendling has passed the Modly reins to new management: mieronna and glockgal! We are the new Mods for artbeta, and as such, we've made a few changes. Here's the rundown:

All previous members are still members!
By now you might have seen our new joining request form. If you are already a member of artbeta, you DO NOT need to fill it our again.

New FAQ!
Read it in all its glory HERE as a post if you have questions. We even have posting guidelines; but us being a group of artists, we're not exactly sticklers. :D

More art!
We've opened the community up not just to all fandoms, but also to original art!

New tagging system!
Still in the works, but if you take a look at our preliminary tags, you'll get an idea of how we'd like your posts to be tagged. Some examples:

beta: anatomy
beta: color
beta: composition
beta: linework
beta: perspectives
media: pencil
media: digital

New email!
Please forward all questions to: lj.artbeta@gmail.com

Happy art-making!

Need anatomy help!

Hey, there.

Ok, so I'm about 2 hours into this John/Rodney painting, and I know  the anatomy is off in Rodney's face and John's hands (which are shapeless blobs right now. His left is suposed to be resting on his hip, and his right just barely cupping Rodney's face).

Anybody out there with a happy red pen want to scribble on this?

Cut for nudity, though no genitals or anything.

[ETA the half way decently sized one. :P]

(no subject)

Characters: Unspecified
Rating: pg, I suppose
Medium: Wacom Tablet & Photoshop painting from ref. picture
Link or LJ-Cut: Collapse )
Problem areas: Hair, (not the arm hair; that's not done and is baaaaad right now) anatomy, drama?

This is the first piece I've done since I was told I don't have carpel tunnel, so I'm a bit rusty. On the other hand, maybe I've shaken some bad habits?


[ETA: proper formating. D'oh!]
