The 6 frame you see is an optional 5th.


:bow: Wow.

That could be an awesome piece of promo art. Out of curiosity, what is this for? Are you going to color it?

Very cool. :cool:

It looks fantastic. Probably took you about 5 minutes to conjure that thing up. (/jealous :P)

One thing that I notice is that the legs appear a bit lengthy. Perhaps I don't have much in the way of proportional know how, but their legs just keep going and going...

hmmm....

Anyways, can't wait to see what it looks like colored!

Lets keep the discussion on this promotional work in the artwork GDnet spotlight thread. Its not a good idea to have two different threads critiquing the same work. ;)

Please disregard any of the coloring... right now I have all the shading down... So anyway, tell me your thoughts, and then we will begin the coloring :)

Sorry, it's been a while... thousand commissions and things to do XD.

Ten kinds of awesome. :approve:




The only thing I'd say is that the shading on the down-side of Claudius' sword - it being as dark as it is - makes the sword look really thick. I don't mean broad, because the "broadness" is by design, but I mean that it makes it look less flat, and more ... almost round like a pipe (if pipes had square cross-sections).

Perhaps adding a "blood groove" the length of the blade would fix this - I dunno. It's a really minor point, anyways.

How about removing the sword from the zoomed-at Claudius' face? Without looking at the big picture, I would not guess it is a sword. Also the thing on his back.

I suggest doing the Claudius' face without this... just display the face; as if you had removed the "layer" with sword.

I wouldn't know personally, but I would think that he didn't draw each body part on its own layer... I don't think there's anything 'under' the sword if that makes sense. He'd probably have to redraw that chunk of the head.

One thing I noticed, apart from the aforementioned pipe-sword, is that Claudius's face doesn't really... look like him. He has this super-extended chin thing going on in that picture that doesn't really make him look much like his battle portraits. I think the eyes may have something to do with it as well, but I can't really place it.

Awesome art apart from that though.

This is a more simplified Laila concept and base sketch for the fullbody portrait.

Looks awesome :approve: Love the stance :bow:


Only two things that I noticed (both are minor) are that the arm closest to the viewer looks a tad large and muscular. Also the face seems a tad masculine... I think its because the nose is too large.

I think she is anatomically believable. She looks tough. Her left forearm looks a tad large on the undersize... I don't think giving her spindly arms would be a good idea. She should look a little tough and badass. We don't want to make Laila look like a pushover and a typical damsel in distress...do we?

Anyways, the proportions are nice!

Lol, yeah, I often worry more about the body than the face when it's in sketch phase. I am thinking of redrawing her right arm.

What rain said; she doesn't look masculine, she looks althletic; I think this'll be far more clear when she's colored, and what are now "hard/dark lines" on the arm become nicely shaded contours. Frankly, the way she is right now looks hot. :approve: I also don't think giving her spindly, "Olive Oyl" arms would be a good idea, either.


Now, as for her right arm, e.g. the one that's on the left side of the page, yeah, there's something slightly off about it - I think a lot of it has to do with the hand. The rest of the picture is fine.

Safir - you fixed that left arm perfectly; this is now just excellent. :approve:

Braaaiiiinnnss? :heh:


(No really - I would very much like to see laila written as considerably more intelligent than the usual clichéd female RPG character. Massively off-topic, though, sorry. XD )
