This is what I was working on today. Some of you saw me post the start of this before. Well I didnt touch it again until today, and now im working to surpass my rogue piece. Im realllly pushing my colors and knowledge. Hitting walls all over the place, but im learning a ton! I'll update you some more late
hey dude, keep taking names, cause you're definitely kickin!
about this latest reworking, there's 2 things that rub me the wrong way...i did a small, rough paintover, i hope this helps explain what i mean:
1) compositionally, it feels like there's a lot of straights. both arms on the right side are straight. the sword is straight. both bodies are mostly straight. i feel like the weapons both lead the eye out of the painting. i changed the angle of the sword and the bow to keep the eye in the painting, and also added a shield to add different shapes and to keep the eye on the page (of course, it's not a good shield cause the shape is very similar to the breastplate she's wearing... ). these are all just examples, not saying that you need to make these exact changes, but just bringing some attention to them.
2) the angle of the lower girls head, and her overall pose doesn't seem very connected or grounded. she's holding a heavy sword, but she's not looking at anything in particular. she seems like she's actually floating, not really fighting, the sword seems really out of place. what if you brought her head angle down, and had her looking at something (in frame or out of frame)? that might connect her to her actions a little bit more.
just a little friendly nudge, i hope this helps dude. you're doing really well, so keep it up.
Congrats so much on the DD, I remembering admiring that piece!
love the color usage, do you do a value study and then new layer w/ colors set to colorize in ps?
kevin_: Thanks mate. I love colors so its all for me
Psychobuddy: Thank you very much!
Updating/touching up some images for my portfolio. Printed it off and got it ready for FanExpo. Fixing this up showed me how far I need to start taking my work. I didnt even put much time into this. I want to have some really "finished" work in my portfolio for fantasy. I'll stay loose for my fashion and personal work.
