@castonia Thank you! I dunno if I'll bring it further, I planned to do a color pass but there's so much other stuff to do
I've started a class on lighting, this is the first assignment, both the plain version and the textured one:
Another screencap study (only 3 hours this time! Textured brushes surely do magic...):
I was pretty happy with the process so I made a gif, if anyone is curious
And finally some progress on my character design, this time her weapon:
Yes, giant swords I put her silhouette for size comparison (I still have to define her final design, but that is generally the silhouette I'll be going for).
According to the myth the sword, Ama no Murakumo, is double-edged, so no katana (even if I gave it a try with 6). I want the sword to be massive but still elegant, so I'll probably play around a bit with proportions because right now some of the design look like simple one-handed swords. But those are the ideas, pretty much. Let me know what you think!
