something done over the holidays
thanks for looking
Holy cow that woman is buff I think more detail should be added to the armor and the biceps and triceps could use more definition. Also if you wanted to add more to the whole 'buff-ness' then you could add some vein defition and extreme defintion to the deltoid, etc. Also the sterno mastoid looks a little weird how it suddenly stops without really tapering down.
2 words but one subjective... "collar bone!!"
heh, im really bad at explaining stuff with words, so heres a quick paintover. hope it helps
actually i just wanted to paint muscular women, hehee
anyway i wanted to point out that, if you are gonna color a grayscale image with the multiply layer, its good to also use other layers on top of that or it will look muddy. like normal and hard light layers are good (this time used only normal layers)
sorry if that didn't make any sense, like i said im not very good at explaining
Think about the composition. Except for a very testosterone pumped lady I'm not sure what I'm seeing here. It seems you've just cut away the hard parts of her, like the hands, so you could start with the background pattern.
In order to get the composition better I'd say zoom out abit, show her other arm (to fix her awkward pose) and let the pattern becom a background.
You got plenty of help with anatomy and such from others, take care of those comments!
