    As daughter of the royal ambassador, Ariandra was required to wear body armor while traveling in foreign territory. For several months she endured the traditional plate carapace. It was oversized and bulky in a way that made her look far too much like a palace guard, or as Ariandra lamented, a “bumbling brute.”

    Seeing her anguish, Ariandra's father ordered the services of the kingdom's most famed tailor to design a custom outfit. It was to be both protective and fashionable.

    Finally she would be seen in public, and was eager to peruse the foreign bazaars in style.

    The colors and values in that last one are very nice. I love how you put the lighting on the armor since that is the defining part of the character design.

    Good to see you back!

    Your recent work is looking great, as usual--great brush stroke economy. I particularly like the way you handled the rug in post 250; it reads as being much more intricate than it actually is. Great structure of temperatures, too! The purples work really well with the warmer colors in the robe and armor. Looking forward to more!

    Absolutely wonderful work.

    Ariandra's outfit is pretty, but she had better watch out for low attacks...

    By the way, I'm wondering how you went about learning what you know about light, color, composition, etc.
    Are you self-taught?
    Do you have any books that you would recommend for someone looking to learn the fundamentals?
    I'm concerned more right now with learning light/color (painting stuff) than form/anatomy.
    Thank you in advance for your help and as well for your contribution to the wonderful visual art we have in this community and this world.

    Thanks guys!

    isokarhu- Those subjects require inquisitive study of reality and master paintings. (Do that often!) Thankfully color and light have predictable patterns, and once understood, can be convincingly reproduced from imagination. I highly recommend this Gnomon DVD which explores the subject: http://www.thegnomonworkshop.com/sto...r#.UJCBSMXA_E0 There is also the great book from James Gurney: http://www.amazon.com/Color-Light-Gu...olor+and+light

    The more I study composition the more I find it to be a rather subjective... subject. So often I see great works that defy many of the conventional rules. If it works well, it is done well. Composition and a good color sense are things that you will grow an eye for as you study. It will become instinctive. With that said, I highly recommend this book for studying strong, designed composition: http://www.amazon.com/Framed-Ink-Dra.../dp/1933492953

    Just remember that no amount of books or lectures will help you unless you are constantly putting the ideas to practice. I like to have master works open for reference while I am painting. I'm not copying, but studying how the masters solved similar problems.

    awesome Lane! each post shows improvement and i love your sense of style. If i could crit you on one thing i would suggest simplifying to bigger shapes at the end (especially in shadows). you seem to have a big to small approach, but some of the samey strokes are hurting the sense of light- for example in the breastplate piece i see strokes in the shadows similar to ones in the light, and its killing that contrast. same in alot of the strokes in the crossbow woman's costume. I don't see these weaknesses in your reffed pictures (that turtle and tree are awesome), so probably would help getting more analytical about effects of lighting in your imaginary pics, and how you can push the differences between different areas of lighting through differences in your brushwork (ha that reads weird).
