thanks Jackel and Smoot.
Yeah I work alot more when going into the pen stage when i'm cleaning up the shape. i know it sounds wierd, alot of people use the rough stage to work out position and perspecive and form, but i mainly just use the roughs to get the idea from brain to paper, then touch up the form and etc in the ink stage.
As for the arm and bracer:
This guy is undead. I wanted to show his body may not be 100% "together". Maybe the arm is broken, or dislocated. I wanted him looking like he is a walking dead body with the problems that come along from fighting other undead or living adventurers.
I want people not to see i drew a perfect form of a person and just "decorated it undead. I want the form to be just "off" enough to know something is wrong with the thing. Maybe i'm trying to be too creative in my art, but i like leaving things to make people go beyond looking at the picture and going " oh...a zombie". (worked for you two didn't it?
I'll toy with a overlay and see if I can keep the offsetting image while cleaning up the bracer.
**EDIT** also. the arm is actually a hands length to long, due to the fact the monster entry says they fight with their hand and attack with their fists. i wanted to accentuate they are in fact pugilists. maybe i'm a wierdo, but i 'll see what happens when i fix the arms.
