Thanks rollb82. Well yesterday I started this pic as a full figure and I cropped it because I thought the legs I drew sucked and it may make the picture a little more interesting. I didnt want to cheat myself out of it so I reworked it some. She is supposed to be pivoting on her right foot, her other knee is lifted and bent in below her skirt. I changed the direction of the head as she would be looking this way if she was in this kind of motion. I think I need to do more studying before I can pull off something like this.
Here is the original pose.. looking at it again not sure which one I like better.
I really like the firedancer...the last version. Looking forward to the finished one!
The facial expression on the one from august 31st is damn cool!
Critwise, I think her torso might be a bit short. Could be a trick of the eye with the dress and all.
Take a look on the area of her face below the nose as well... looks a bit like the mouth should be pushed a bit forward.
Thanks dcept. You are definitely right about those proportions. Been spending too much time on that pic and not getting anywhere atm.
Here is an oc session I did with sone_one last night or the night before ( not sure ). Topic was dueling wizards.. he did the guy on the left and I did the guy on the right and also tried to add in the background afterwards without screwing his wizard up.
