Working on the full-body version of Dante. I'm working on getting her anatomy right before I plug her into painting mode. Any crit on that would be lovely.
Glad to see you got this thing up and running!
Something I've recently started doing that helps a ton- measuring the figure via the head size. I wrote it off after I initially practiced and implemented the technique back in high school (a decade ago. EEK), but after going through my old sketches and measuring, I was way off. Half my figures were like 5 heads tall.
You did one of my favorite digital cheap tricks, copying the head from a portrait for the full figure. What a time saver :P
I need to write all that measuring stuff down. And oddly, once I started tweaking the anatomy, I was second-guessing everything. And losing, it apparently. I had some stuff right to begin with.
Actually, it isn't the same head cut-and-paste-style, if that's what you mean. I copied it from the other, though. I had them side by side and did it that way, which was really fun, actually.
I think you could use some more work on anatomy. Posemaniacs is a great place to practice. Maybe pick up a pad of bristol board to draw on. Also try painting on a 25% gray background to better see values.
Welcome to CA keep posting away plz! And keep up the good work!
This is looking pretty cool. I'd take the black between the ribs and either fill it with more magic dust and sparkles or make it nice and gory
I love the horns but my favorite part is the highlights on the dress. Nice and crisp.
What's the plan for the background? It looks like she is sitting in a cave, peering out into the night.
Oooh, love the gory idea! I want to go more creepy and less cute, pixie, etc. Thanks about the dress, I'd love more clean smooth lines but I think it's starting to work.
I played with the background last night but wasn't feeling it yet. My inclination is to go magical forest on her but maybe something a little more...hellish?
oo, that girl with the exposed vertibrae really makes me cringe. That is a good thing . I noticed you must be right near me. I saw the ac state which is a good chance that is sac state. so Howdy neighbor! also a better example of more recent tattoo wrk can be found here.

SketchBook Chris Yoakum?
Hellish is always good, especially around these forums.
If you want inspiration, check this out:
Lots of good hellish stuff in there for color scheme and texture ideas. How cool would she be with a gory mix of blood/bone/tissue combined with fire/stone?
That post I linked is full of completely amazing artwork. Here is some more:
Makes my head hurt ;P
