Wow, I'm really impressed with the WIPs thus far - can't wait to see all the finished pics!
vibhas_virwani- By tonal variation, I meant different colours. On the arm, you have lots of different flesh colours blended together, and it works really well. What I was suggesting was that you add more detail to the face by using lots of different flesh tones, like you did on the arm... Hope that makes sense
Awright, here's my WIP... Not very far along, I know... (A bit farther now, actually, I haven't gotten the latest file from the other computer.)
He's the dark god of the leaves. Yeah... He was picked on as a teenager, as he would go to the quad during lunch proclaiming his D&D title, "Dark God of the Forest." Now he has moved past D&D to WoW. He pays for his coke, twinkies, and electricity with his newfound job as a part-time maintenance man. Rake and leaf-blower in his meaty fists, he is the "Dark God of the Leaves."
Crits and tips are more than welcome. It's kind of small, though... It's more to show y'all what I'm doing than anything.
nice job muffin!
the glowing head really works well as a focal area. two things though:
to finish it off, maybe try to u^p the contrast of the face area just a notch
and the red giant leaves work well in the composition, but they feel a bit pasted on to me.. most likely because they stand out in terms of color. if you could make them blend in the environment a bit more (eg have the yellowish glow work on them, or use a bit more of that warm/cool color effect)
i'm rambling.. just got up after a three hour night because my kid was screaming for donuts... forgive my lack of comprehendable bladderings
Posting wipsors (for some reason i have not got the permissions to do attachments, so this is hosted at my end). The concept being that this light side goddess is on a futuristic settlement ship in deep space. After the annihilation of earth, a ship called GAIA was sent away carrying specimens of earths Flora and Fauna, to repopulate a habitable world with our creatures. The stewards of this ship came to be known as 'Godesses of the Leaves'.
Give me my wiploots!
