    definitely a lot better! i think another minor crit is all your characters tend to face forward pretty dead on. if she was turned a bit i think it'd be better. but either way it's cool to see the change from the old piece to this one! how old is the other one?

    LOL, I'm having fun~~~ or I won't do it.

    Here's something new. I did this for this week's CHOW: Steam punk Harem. I like the first, the pose is more natural... but the problem is, he doesn't look like a Harem slave boy, but rather an Arabian prince.

    I figure the idea of Victorian fantasy of Harem is very sexually charged, and if I end up doing a slave boy, he'll probably end up being some sort of gay sex object or something. And I've already been criticized for drawing feminine looking guys... So I'll keep on finishing my prince as it is, an adventurer with a mechanical falcon. I just really like him~~~

    I'm still working on it. But I won't post it for this week's CHOW. it doesn't fit the briefing anyway. But I'll get it done. I really like him...and the mechanical bird.

    I should go finish my Arabic prince, but got side tracked and paint this for a friend's book. He liked her, at least I got his approval that I somewhat capture the personality of this girl. but he's hoping I could do another one in different style. It's true, the rough and rather painterly style doesn't fit with the his book and this character.

    I haven't update much lately~ Here's a new piece, which I'm not really happy with. I paint this (again...) for a friend, it's a character from his most recent novel. He liked this girl, although... I really don't know if he really like her, or he's just being polite...LOL.

    I used to post my WIPs... Well... Guess I'm just being lazy... only post finished ones... I'm working on a very interesting piece hopefully I'll be able to pull if off.

    A really fun project~~~ WIP

    I got the inspiration from this work. So I decided to do my favorite painting, Portrait of Giuliano de' Medici by Sandro Botticelli. This is the painting that ignited my passion for the Medici family and art history, and eventually leads to a BA in early renaissance.

    Finished!!!

    This is my version of one of my favorite paintings, portrait of Guiliano de'Medici by Sandro Botticelli.

    Two changes were made with my painting: 1, I added a bit of a highlight on his hair; 2, I don't like the bird, so I didn't paint it.

    About this painting: This is my favorite painting, the one which got me into art history, the Medici family, and the most brilliant early Florentine Renaissance... (and a BA in art history if I may so vain to add). I saw this painting at art history 101, I don't know who the sitter was, nor the artist. I guess it's like love on the first sight. I want to know more about this painting, so I dig in and never stop.

    This painting is very likely done after Guiliano was killed in 1478 during the Pazzi conspiracy, ordered by brother Lorenzo il Magnifico. The half opened window, the downcast eyes, the bird at the bottom, all symbolize death and mourning. It was probably a very popular painting after it's finished, because there're at least two other copies survived. Botticelli was already a Medici favorite, and no doubt very expensive to hire. Guiliano was a likable character, after his death, it's natural for his friend to order his portrait to memorize. Thus the original by Botticelli, and two copies either from his workshop or from other lesser artists.

    The original is a permanent collection at National Gallery of Art in Washington.

    I love your improvement, fluorine! Those CHOW entries are rather fab and while your Arabian prince with the falcon doesn't meet the requirements of harem boy, it's a lovely design that reminds me of "Lawrence of Arabia". You're pretty busy with those female characters and that portfolio review. Great to hear that one of their reviews got that assassin character of yours a terrific update! I like seeing updates of beloved older characters.

    I also like your current study of the Medici portrait. You're very good at getting it down to the texture. Interesting artistic license, too with removing the bird.

    I have this sketch thingy going on with a friend, we promise we'll draw something everyday, either a new sketch or a significant WIP, for the next month, starting today.

    So here's my most cliche alien priestess. There's a story for this alien Priestess, and I'll tell it after I finish her~

    alien pristess

    Imho her neck looks a bit stiff. I think it be more interesting if she had some expression going on too O_o
    Be careful with that texture background. Painterly things tend to fall off these kinds of textures and background and character start to look separate.

    I just stumbled upon your sketchbook and I am really enjoying it!

    The color scheme you chose for the most recent alien is very vivid and her costume is very Egyptian-like. I dig it!

    In reference to the Boticelli, I think it is a good painting but yours is a modern interpretation. Maybe it was not your goal to make that type of copy but you mentioned that its part of your BA so I think its worth getting into. I dont get the sense that your process was informed by traditional techniques, ie underpainting and glazing and the dynamics of a brush on canvas. I have yet to find a guide on the net but I have learned through experimentation that these things are possible to emulate with digital paint if care is taken. (Its a very layer-conscious approach).
    In any case I dont mean to nitpick its just a subject I find very interesting.
    take it easy

    I was working on a commission for the past couple of days, and I just got permission from the client that I can post it. I had fun painting her. I'll never design a character like this, but guess that's part of the fun doing commission you never know what you'll get.
