I've been a way for a while working on various things, such as building and launching my new site; which I am delighted to report is finally up and running. Good to be back.
The first image (the Squire painting) is a revisited version; I had first posted the image..oh.. a few months ago now; got some great feedback in terms of fixing some perspective issues, fixing the original arms, etc. Thanks again for all the help with that. So I went back made the corrections, but this time I repainted it in grayscale to simply focus on rendering the form and avoid the color mess.
The second image is a more recent Illustration of a Priestess costume that may or may not be part of a personal story I'm working on developing; too early to tell. I know about the white bg. It’s just that the character art I love the most seems to all be done on a white bg (focus only on character), so I wanted to give it a go; + the env. wasn’t a concern here. The next image will be a full illustration: characters, env. the works.
I would appreciate any feedback and any help to make these pieces the best they can be. (The orig/print size for these imgs is 11 x 17; so to post they have been shrunk down)
p.s. oh if would like to check out my site one can do so at www.reddaydream.com
