Hey, looking good man! Try softening your brush when shading (hardness to zero, then opacity and flow to 50%) Keep up the great work!
With this picture after most of it was finished i went over it adding hard brush details then again with soft brush details...i smoothed out a lot of areas with the soft brush. my flow is normally always 40percent and i just juggle the opacity up and down!! thanks for the review though!
I think this one turned out great! By far my favorite one that you have done. The shading is smooth and clean, and as always your composition of this character is well done. People are saying that the armor isn't glossy enough, but I have looked over your other pieces countless times and I think that you executed the armor exactly the way you wanted to. If you wanted it super glossy I'm sure you would have made it that way. Over all it is great and can't wait to see your next one.
Looks great! If you are looking for smoother blending try using the eyedrop tool (whatever that thing is called) and sample the in between shades/colors to make the transition more gradual! On a different note, your shading is well done and well put together. Keep it up!
I'll keep that in mind....I've been practicing creating images with just value...so this picture was started in just greyscale...then colored...but i haven't really found a technique i like for coloring over the greyscale image!
For the first instant it looked like a photograph, so I give you props on that. A few things that might help you in the future are time consuming, but simple tasks. When I started taking a closer look the first thing I noticed was that the hair could use a little work. The blur on the edges almost looks like a cop out for tedious details. I can tell you spent a lot of time working on the face. It is smooth and nearly flawless when it comes to the skin. However when my eyes follow the flow of the picture I noticed that other portions of skin didn't seem to be as refined as the face. The clothes and lace blew me away, absolutely perfect! Overall this is very well done and I can tell you are a very experienced artist. Keep up the great work!
Wow! That is simply pleasing to the eyes. The full colors on the dark background was a great choice! I favorited this so i can come back and check out your other work!
Thaaaaanks a lot :D
Haha! This made me literally laugh out loud. Very creative and you did great at getting the idea across!
