    I think you'll do better to totally erase the effect and sharp the edges of your subject. It's ok if you want to leave the rgb on the left hand cause is moving fast and is very close to the noise source, you know, motion blur + rgb = strong rgb. Leaving that on the entire figure means to double edge it and it makes it confusing to read and even to get the colors.

    Another fact is that you get that effect in dark shootings (or overcast to dark portion of your set), this means that the rgb is usually strong on the corners of the camera (cause they are getting more occlusion and it depends on the lens and aperture too cause a low aperture means a progressive blur effect away from the center or focus... this is why motion blur + rgb = strong rgb). In high light portions of the image the edges are so neat that you can't see the effect at all unless the light on your subject is being reflected toward the camera (causing a blur fading light, that's why on the source the rgb is more strong) but your subject is behind the light source so it gets only a strong rim light so... sharp edges

    If there's a post production fx professional i think he can explain the thing better than me.

    Hitsu: Thanks for explaining that for me. Understanding why that effect happens gives me a little better idea of when to use it. Not just use it on everything.

    Some character concepts for class. Inspired by Takashi Okasaki, who was the concept artist for Afro Samurai.

    Ohhh the last one is really really nice buddy! Put a soft round shadow at 20% or something this subtle behind her feets and look at the difference. Anyway good improvements!

    Thanks Hitsu, it is subtle but it feels like she is more grounded now.

    I love the surrealist style of the works, and the character progressions are impressive. Almost reminds me of some of the characters from Enclave.

    it's a realistic behavior of shadow on a overcast situation or over a reflective surface.

    I really like your process of creating quick character designs but I can definitely see improvement over time in your work. It's inspiring.

    CatmanFS: Thank you! I've never had someone refer to my work as surrealist. It's an interesting take. I might just look more into that

    Hitsu: That's interesting, I'll have to check out photos or find the right surface to see for myself and really understand, but I can kind of imagine.

    EpicDom: Thanks, it's a ton of fun just to make a bunch of quick characters. I appreciate your compliments.

    Here are some thumbnails for upcoming Epocholypse illustrations / concepts. "Starchild" , a sort of sci fi city surrounded by glacier and tundra, and ancient jungle temple in the mountains.

    "The Oracle"

    Floating before an altar constructed of stars and void, the last remaining prophet inhaled the ether of space. Gazing into the expanse with an inner light that pierced time, she beseeched the Gods, seeking the guidance that eluded so many before her.

    For an instant the universe stood still as The Oracle received an spark of divine clarity - hope that she might save humanity. She turned to Earth, taking in its swirling beauty for a brief moment, and then soared towards the surface to track down the Chosen Eight.
