That landscape study is great!
The lady from post#34 is looking very evil now. I might be biased, for a good reason ha ha, but I like how it turned out with blue around her eyes and on her ears.
I rather like the drawing of her. See how far you can push it. : )
CarbonBased: Thanks . I think the blue works much better - thank you for the advice! I wasn't going to carry on with it but I'll give it another go now.
Rustveld: Thank you!
Jephy X: Thanks! I started doing it to try and push my designs so they look more interesting. I just need to continue the process now and get a finished character from it .
Was feeling a bit down about my last post but the comments have really made me feel better and encouraged me to keep going . I've been ill today and yesterday, but as I can get out of bed today I managed to get this done. Just from imagination - didn't really have anything in mind. Rather embarrassed I worked on it for 2 hours - it looks like so much less than that!
Thanks for your nice comment!
Whooah, I think I like everything I've seen here so far! Really good-looking and creative concepts, and I really really like your shading.
The art you have as your avatar, that's my favourite. I love this mixture of colours/light on her face.
Waiting for more, I will be definitely coming back - to admire and to learn!
That last sketch is really nice.
It's not as rough and unfinished as most others.
The slight tint of blue/green in the darks makes it even better.
Really nice job there.
Your Landscapes look promising too...actually I like them better then you humanoids. some foreground or crisp details might help improve the environments.
Keep it up.
Those are some nice silhouettes you've got there. Numbers 1 and 3 look like they could
be from a fight scene. The second silhouette is nice too, the only thing that
I want to point out is that it looks as though she is staring off at the
distance. I think it would be nice if you made her staring at the viewer, but
that could just be my own personal preference.
Your rendering has improved a lot since the first page. You're on a roll! I just
love that image you posted on feb 22nd. Also I am really liking how this image
is coming along. Don't get discouraged! I think you've got a nice character
design there and I can't wait to see the end result. (that is, if you do decide to finish it)
All in all a very nice sketchbook. Keep working on that mileage.
Silwynar: Thank you for the comment! Yeah, I am a bit guilty of that . Practice, practice, practice!
Elisele: Thanks for stopping by ! That's a really good point - if I put more detail into that one I will make her look at the viewer. I'm really not sure about that other piece though, hehe! Thanks again!!
Sleepingrabbit: Thank you very much !
More work on the fiery spirit character. Trying to explore a few costume ideas (my original idea was to design a fire character for a game like Soul Calibur). I think I like 4 and 5 so going to continue with those for colours/more detail then choose one from there.
I chose to work on number 5 from the sketches in the last post. I've worked out the colour scheme separately, but it's very messy so I'm not posting it here :p. Instead, here's a close-up of the face so far. Spent about 2 hours on it this evening, and I used a reference to help.
She's meant to be fiery, so I'm not going for realistic skin colours! And I've only just started on the hair .
