    Myre - the fox warrior

    Hi there!

    Myre, the fox lady that has been in my mind for god knows how long. I have been drawing fox-women with pure red hair for such a long time and never believed that I will create an actual character out of my throught and subconscious scribbling.

    This was my first attempt to paint armor that looks used and worn.
    The rusty bits, scratches and dents were the most fun part to do about it. I spent most of the time working on the plating and correcting mistakes that have been sneaked in with the sketch:




    Painting metal can be so much fun as you can play around with tiny details, rust, different colours and shapes yet there are restrictions about light and shadows which makes the process of painting a lot more a challenge when you're used to paint plants and leaves.

    Thanks a lot for looking

    Very nice. Beautiful, really.

    A thought or two- some nice subtle rim lighting behind her could add a nice touch. And I think if you gave the overall composition around the figure some breathing room it would afford you much more overall impact. Everything 'feels' really cramped right now.

    Whatever the case, well done!

    I will definately try that out when I have a little more time again. Finding awesome picture compositions is really something I still need to get hold of - is there a way you can learn that or is it a matter of imagination and logical thinking?

    Adding to what Eric said, part of the reason it looks cramped is that there is more room behind her than in front of her. Because of this, it kinda looks like she's been told to go stand in the corner. If you added a little more open space to the lefthand side of the picture, she could breathe more.

    cool, I enjoy the color work, but in a way I like the pencil sketch just a little more. reminds me of something you would see in an explorer's sketch book. good stuff all around though.
