Thanks for your thoughts!! Actually i was struggling with the helmet itself. Here it's reference and how I did it

It would of of great help if you tell me how you would go about deconstructing it.

My crazy mind pick the most difficult Helmet present on Pinterest rather than other where front is plane.

Can you also please expand your thought where you said that "I have move one step ahead"

Thanks ones again

When i said maybe you where one step ahead I mean maybe you are using too much forms or too complex forms.

Maybe you are using more complex forms when you could just use a simple sphere/cone/cylinder/box and just after that try to shape that sphere/cone/cylinder/box into a more complex form closer to the reference.

Exemplifying: A head can be simplified into a half-sphere (cranium) on top a box (jaw). After this first step you star to carve both the sphere and the box to move closer to the reference.

It's indeed a hard helmet to reduce to basic forms.

I did this one:

The porportions are a bit off, but I think it's ok.

I forgot to add the crest of the helmet on the study, but it's a pyramid-like as llike the facemask.

Sorry, I threw the paper sheet away.

But I think you did pretty well!

It sure sucks struggle with something. Last week I tried to paint a portrait on Procreate following lessons from a online course. The process was close to the traditional painting. I was convinced I had the skills to make a portrait, but I was wrong. The eyes were googly and the hands were off...

I sure learned many things trying and now I know what I need to learn more. Next portrait I will try to make a sketch first e pay close attention to the eyes.

If my only concern is the end result, I failed. If I'm looking for evolution, I did well: trying the portrait made me better and the next one (even if not finished again) will push me further too.

The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

While I have a massive library of non-instructional art books I've collected over the years, there's only a handful that are actually important to me. This is one of them - so much so that I jammed my copy into my overstuffed backpack when flying back from my parents' house just so I could have it at my apartment. My back's been sore for a week.

The reason I hold this book in such high esteem is because of how it puts the relatively new field of game art into perspective, showing how concept art really just started off as crude sketches intended to communicate ideas to storytellers, designers and 3D modelers. How all of this focus on beautiful illustrations is really secondary to the core of a concept artist's job. A real eye-opener.
