This is actually very, very fantastic for you being in a learning phaseXD (Not that I didn't expect as much, I don't think most skyrim fanartists could do anything amateur) the colors and shading are perfect, the background is near flawless, and any lines you have look wonderful. It seems as if you are adjusting well, m'lady.:3
I like the dramatic light/dark setting. And his eyes look nice. (But I still see a little bit of line-art going on... around the mouth) *shot* And the chin seems a bit off with the lighting. It makes it look a little too thin.
I know you're learning. And it's difficult to paint faces and get the shapes right. But that's why I point it out.... trying to help... *fails at giving good advice* OTL I also realize you don't have a pc and can't take a crapload of good screenshots to use as refs.
Very wonderful. Do keep at it. His chin does seem a little off, but again, you are practicing a new medium. I do like the shadowing a lot as well. I would suggest not using black on his mouth, though. It makes them stick out too much and detaches them from his face. Otherwise, very lovely.
Thank you! It'll take me awhile to learn how the light/shadows play across the anatomy of the figure and etc ... Line drawing is more my strong point, so this medium will take me awhile to get used to. Thanks for the feedback.
You are very welcome! I am glad to be of help. Yes, digital tends to focus not so much on line as it does on shape and volume, which can be a tough switch to make, or at least a very different thing to learn. I think you will soon get the hang of it, though. Not that I'm a digital expert. Not even close.
Your digital is certainly improving with each piece. One suggestion though, the pupils for the eyes appear to be pointing in different directions, giving this dude a pretty weird glare. Otherwise, everything looks really nice, especially the lighting and background!
Okay, so I'm the Vingalmo roleplayer on Tumblr... and when I saw this in his tag, I nearly screamed. XD The extreme contrast in the lighting is just plain marvellous, as is his facial expression - You have got him spot on!
the stable master and his wife over at the windhelm stables and lorius's wife at the farm where you meet cicero. Granted stable dude complains about how much you pay for a horse but he is not the only one to do so.
