    Orc shaman character concept/illustration

    Hello!

    These are some pieces I did for the semi-recent Artorder contest as like a warm up for the D&D art test. (Located Here)

    I know a lot of work could still go into them, but these are probably some of my stronger digital pieces of this type so far. Crits and tips welcome!



    Lighting is fudged/simplified for clarity of design. (At least that was the intent when I did it.)



    Not as happy with this one, but I think with a lot work they can both be solid.

    Thanks!

    You need to work on your anatomy and structure before tackling stuff like this. No clear sense of light and shadow in either piece. Sart with thumbnails, then pencils, then color comps, then get reference (shoot your own is best) correct any errors in your drawings and then paint.

    I did my best to be relatively on model to this (Specifically the "Creatures" section).

    Which has nothing to do with what I'm talking about. You are going to be judged on your art skills first and then your ability to follow directions.

    My apologies, you mentioned anatomy and structure, and I thought you might have been referring to proportions, so I posted my guide.

    For the lighting, I was going for the effect (on the first piece) displayed in Kekai Kotaki's work here:

    Of course no where close to his level, but it's an example of why I put limited lighting into the surrounding environment.

    I agree it needs a lot of work.

    Stripped down all "effects" and re working anatomy. Tweaked stomach a little and re-doing legs.
