    Smile Unndi's Sketchbook

    *Takes deep breath* Ok...Let's see here; Crit's are welcome! My main goal is improvement- oh and my dream job is to be a concept artist.
    To start off, I'm going to be posting a current work in progress:


    Here's the sketch...My personal interpretation of a Falmer (Skyrim Elf) after they start to get healthier again.

    Blocking in a rough color pallet to refer to after the black and white value painting is done. Because my brain will break using anything other then grayscale.

    Working on the Grayscale value and tightening the whole thing up. Thinking I might go for much more dramatic lighting soon.

    the direction they run screaming.

    Hi, I like your linework and color, but the face in general is bothering me a bit.

    It looks way too much tense for me, as if the character couldn't move his facial muscles, neither close his mouth. I would add some facial sulcus, (nasogenian, frontal and between eyebrows).-

    Good luck, keep this up!

    Cheers.
    Claudio.

    Good start unndi. The rendering looks pretty nice, but the face is super smooth, which looks unnatural unless it's supposed to be a perfect young female face (I don't know how those elves are supposed to look, so maybe that's your goal ). I think you could also use more different colors, like blue/green for the shadow areas, hints of red/orange/purple on some parts of the skin etc. Even if the face is going to be really pale, there should be more color.

    Thanks for the feedback guys! Yea the face won't be staying smooth, I'll be adding those details and roughness to the skin later- color too lol, right now it's strictly grayscale because for some reason it's just easier for me to get my values and contrast down this way and then add the color later b:
    I'll focus on not making the face feel so tight...I was focused on my reference material which show the Falmer skin being really tight to the face so I wouldn't have noticed that if you hadn't said it Clodioz, so thanks a bunch!
