    Wasp female warrior-WIP

    hi all! i started this today

    im not decided yet the mood, the color palette or the lightsource. (any suggestions will be welcome )

    Im not good with anatomy, but im trying to improve.
    Even if cant see it, i know her body has a lot of mistakes, so if you see them tell me!

    And by the way, if this finally turns out good, and i include it in my portfolio...
    should i have caution will blood, violence, nudity right?

    thanks for your time.
    Eddy.

    Well her forearm is awkward and the anatomy is just wrong there. Get a wardrobe mirror and pose yourself to see how the anatomy would actually look. Thumbnail out ideas for lighting and color schemes first though. If you are going to make a piece of illustration no reason to do it halfway and backwards.

    Arm looks better...but why the odd cropping? Also the dead center composition....as dpaint said, if you plan to take this farther than a quick study you should really know where you're headed.

    What would Caravaggio do?

    that was the problem, i liked the pose and the character but i didnt have any final idea in my mind. So i didnt know where i was going.
    But now im thinking about this: maybe i could add the hand of a defeated enemy in the front and more enemies to the her sides, like if she was surrounded.


    this is the idea:

    update:

    female warrior-WIP

    here is my first idea for the mood of the picture, a dawn.

    any ideas, suggestions, welcome.

    another lil update:

    female warrior-WIP

    i need some advice with how the light of the daw will affect her clothes, i think the light should hit she from right and left, darkening the center and the area under her arm.

    probably i will repeat the hair, and tweak the face a bit more before i continue.

    the colors are not as vibrant as they could be maybe try using a harder brush with more pressure and then. Before that though you should have done a value study first, take a landscape from a picture set it to grayscale and set yours to grayscale and compare the values of the two picture and see what your missing. Everything in a scene starts with foreground, middle, and background and each has a specific value range.
