    LineageII Orc Female

    This is a piece I have been struggling with for a looong time, taking it out and dusting it off to work with it some more every now and then. Since it's meant as a gift for a friend though, I would like to finally get it finished. Please, anything you can think of to make this a real beauty would help! I want to make my friend whoop in delight!

    AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! O_O

    legs feel a bit to long though
    and the leg from the front is a bit to thick
    compare "her" left hand with the whole leg, in comparison, see what i mean?
    (not such a big problem though)

    I'd rework the stone if i where you
    look a bit to smooth
    and I'd suggest adding some texture either brush or combined with a overlay

    the space up in the left corner feel a bit empty and since there is a light source reflecting on the stone I'd make the clouds up their brighter and yellow/red orange an let it reflect on her skin, I think it would support the cool (blue) light great!
    hmmm.... I'd erase the dust around her head, looks a bit off

    you did an excellent wok on the face

    whoo keep it up!!!

    I would have to agree with hygami that something feels missing in the left hand corner. Perhaps if you complete the golden triangle with her pose and maybe something flying in the sky like a bird of prey or something. That is the only thing I can think of other than that you rendering is pretty freakin awesome and personally I like the extreme foreshortening that you have going on right now.

    Thanks for the feedback, guys, much appreciated!

    I was pondering about adding a dragon in the left upper corner, but it seemed like a bad idea - in the end, people would just go "Ohh, she is so toast!" or something, so a bird of prey is a better idea. Heres an update - worked more on the rocks, touched up lots of minor little things. My Bf is still not happy with her face, but I don't really know what more I could add to it. Any suggestions?

    In my opinion shes too "pretty" to be an orc. I get more of a black elf impression (I think its because her nose is pretty n pointy like an elfs), but thats just my taste. The bird addition is cool, although the bird itself looks flat to me (and if its far away, it doesn't have to be so "clear"). The rocks are ok, but they don't seem to be in perspective with the character which we are looking up at. Hope this helps...

    Well she could be half-orc and who says that orcs can't be pretty if the majority of orcs are ugly but they find that attractive then those orcs that are pretty must be ugly to them. It is the whole eye of the beholder thing.

    Dragonsnail I think this piece is really coming home now and you did an awesome job with the bird, thanks for taking the suggestion. I really don't see anything else that I can help out with except say that it looks great to me.

    The female orcs of LineageII are real beautys, and my friend loves her character, so I tried to make her close to her original look. They do also have a sort of african look, which is what I aimed for. If I had made a WoW orc female I would have aimed for a more ugly face! Anyhow, thanks for trying to help me out here, I really appreciate it! I'll see if I can't fix those rocks.

    I know you're aiming for an upwards perspective shot, but maybe her head should be a little bit bigger. In context with the size of her legs and even her shoulders and such, she looks a bit pinheaded.

    Also... she's missing a navel. Dunno if that's intentional or not.

    Change the legs... Maybe try some tatoos on the face or body. Really love the motion of the wind. Sweeet piece!

    lol, i saw the pic before i read the title and I said to myself, "oh, looks like lineage" so id say you did a good job at conveying lineage even though it isnt quite as korean/anime looking. I like the bird of prey, it fits the character much more then a dragon too.

    Your piece is so far along itd be kind of a mess to look into some of my crits with the perspective. Like someone above said she seems a bit "pinheaded" and i think you can alleviate that a bit by making the head and hands a tiny bit bigger. Also the right arm holding the spear feels a bit weird, but I think if the hand was a tiny bit bigger itd help a little.

    Anyway this post is way too long, great job and hope your friend likes it. PS are you on any servers for l2?
