Quick(for my standards xD it took about 1hour) portrait study!
Time for hands now
This is a magnificent study I love subsurface lighting on this I just have 1 tiny tiny critique and that is the length and width of the fingers its BARELY noticeable but I feel like there is some adjustments to be done here unless this was a stylistic choice? Like I said in the beginning I think this is fantastic!
Thank you so much Ryan! I love long, slender hands but you are probably right I have slighlty overdid with the width now that I am lookong at them
For subsurface scattering I recommend using color dodge layer, it makes a very cool effect much easier than painting it on the same normal layer!
interesting tidbit for subsurface scattering (had to look that up). will definitely keep this in mind when approaching lighting in my pieces. nice job on the hand. I agree with Ryan.
Some sketches for Marc's ditys challenge and my Asuka fanart, let me know what do you think guys!
These look great! Will you color them?
I loved to sit on the floor like that but someone told me it's not healthy for the patella.
Definitely! working now on Marc's one and I think I will make Asuka in 2 styles, realistic and anime.
I think it depends on how much you are stretched for sitting like that, aren't Japanese sitting like that whole lives?
I got so much faster at coloring, I think it came out pretty nice! Any opinions?
Started coloring Asuka's fanart, it will probably take a lot of time, I want to explore some new rendering styles
You updates look great! Asuka's hand seems a bit small in my opinion?
Thank you Indra! You are right, I didn't like this hand as well. I am now redrawing it totally, I think she will hold a strand of her hair in the final version instead touching her lips, it will suit her personality better I guess?
You're very welcome. Yeah! We girls with long hair tend to play with it sometimes. I'm sure it'll look good!
And this tends to look very cute Redrawed a hand and worked some on anime style rendering, it is so cool how coloring can change a drawing
That's a totally different feel now! Like it a lot!
Really glad you like it, it is a lot of fun to check different rendering on the same drawing Was Asuka your fav character from NGE?
Some update on semi-realistic rendering:
And I wanted to put my new material knowledge to use on my robot!
Needed to take care of some personal stuff in life but worked bit by bit on the Asuka and I think she is finished, will gladly hear what do you think to maybe polish it some more!
Peter that's amazing shading here. Especially on the legs, they feel 3D. If I were to try finding something, maybe the arms don't feel proportionate? Distance between her left shoulder to elbow feels longer than the same distance on her right arm. Because of that we get the extra long forearm there. Anyways, I'm rambling. You get what I mean
Thank you Vika, rally gave my best I have tried to clearly show it is inside of the forearn but probably I have put brachioradialis muscle a bit too high if you feel the forearm is too long, will merge it today and try to move a bit with liquify!
This uniform rendering is AWESOME! Congrats! 💙
