    EKLIPSE : Characters(Underdressed fantasy girls & lemur men) - October 15th update

    Personal project, Eklispse Thread for the characters.
    Working on enviros and creatures end everything with some friends, not
    quite up to the level I'd want to show yet. But here are some characters I'm fairly happy with.

    edit / a couple updates. nothing major. Just thought I'd remind people I'm still alive. sorry this stuff's not in order. Hope you enjoy!
    oh! and here's a process of one of the characters. i know i'm not the best. but hopefully it can help someone... or help someone help me

    Very nice, Loren. You have improved so much, but I have to say that your characters tend to look related to each other (even if only by marriage). I'd like to see some more range (of course, I get here so seldom these days that you may have posted just such a thread).

    You just keep on getting better and better!
    I love the designs and always adore your line works. I don't recall seeing many of your coloring (then again, I hadn't check in to see your new works for nearly two years)

    Here's some thoughts on your coloring: your coloring style work really well with a lot of the texture shown there, especially fabrics, but it appears "muddy" on the skin part, especially when combined with less saturated colors for shading.

    Also your pallet for skins contains a little too many warm colors. Here are my usual approaches to avoid skin tones being too warm:
    use a cold color for under paint, then add on warm flesh colors
    use cold color for high lights
    use cold color in secondary lighting

    As for the cold color for under paint, it doesn't have to be limited in dead cold blues. Personally I find that medium-dark yellow-green could work wonders on very fair skin tones, it creates a warm feeling of the skin. Medium colored cyan-blue usually give the skin a cold feeling, and dark purple could always be used for dark skin tones.

    If you want to experiment to find what color is best for under paint, you can have under-paint color in one layer, normal skin color in a separate layer and paint with the layer mask instead of the layer itself, then high light in one more layer. (I'll try to post a sample of what I mean when I get home)

    love em dood! i would agree on the similarity of the faces, and they are a bit androgynous, but i love the balance of implied detail in the costumes. the patterns and shapes are really nice. Keep painting so i can fly you out here dood!

    Love 'em Loren. I agree with 'Looks' comments about colour and underpainting, but the androgyny doesn't bother me, whether intentional or not. Your characters have a distinctive style that can only get stronger the more you develop it, particularly if you experiment a bit more with different characterization.

    I think they look great!

    really awesome designs.... I love the weapon the first guy is holding... brutal.
    the characters are related to one another?

    These are cool character pin ups. They are quite detailed without over doing it, I think you did a great job on the designing part. Ain't the boy's right knee a bit sharp though?

    Keep them comin Loren. I agree with Nonie, thinking about the lighting is key. Also pay attention to your value transitions to express the form better.
    keep doing figure studies, and Cloth studies to get a good sense of how to render different types of form and texture.
    I see a constant look among your characters, maybe try different shapes, and heights for your next few concepts.
    The most recent one you did has a great face by the way.

    I like the direction you're taking with the patterning on the costumes and the stripe motif on the last red chick there. These are really solid Loren

    Very strong work here. It could use a bit more refining in general, but they are very nicely drawn and painted. Keep it up!

    hey dooder, these are wonderful! i know i've said it before (and i felt bad for saying it then) but i'll say it again - i'd love to see some more facial variations here. put side by side, these guys could all be closely related, if not younger/older versions of each other, just because of the face. the nose, in particular. i dunno if you ref for any of the faces (im guessing no at this point, i know what its like to develop a working style), but i think if you chose some random nobodies and used aspects of their faces to change things up more, it would make these concepts all the stronger. i just know that any layman would look at these and probably notice the same thing. keep it up, mate, is good to see stuff from you again
