few issues with her arm. I really should have made it a longer and just a bit larger,but that aside it turned out ok. copic markers, rotring and pitt pens. fw ink.
this is awesome but whats rotring
I am a newbie so bare with me as I ask... I cannot see the problem with her arm, what is wrong with it?
it's a bit out of proportion in how it's foreshortened. it needed to be just a little longer and the forearm and fist a little larger in order to make it appear that it's outstretched. there's also a tangent issue along her chest line and the sword. they both meet on the same plane. when that happens you can't tell if something is in front or behind the figure.
Thanks for your reply. I hope it is not too much of an imposition but I have to ask a follow up question or two. How would an artist lay out the proper proportion for such an extremely foreshortened form? Would it be typical resort to cylinders and cubes receding to vanishing point behind the shoulder or is there another method? Thank you in advance for your patience with me and these pestering questions.
if you can, you should pick up books by andrew loomis. they are reprinting his books, and one that really goes into perspective is "successful Drawing" check out his other books at barnes and nobles. really nice additions to an artists reference library.
Overall looks great. Too bad you couldn't fix her arm. Beautiful piece though.
Awesome work here
It looks really great except one tiny detail, you have a tangent line at her left breast and the crossguard of her sword. It isn't a big deal. This is still fantastic work.
yep, your right. you can see how i tried to build it up to try and break it, but it was too close to make a difference at that point.
WOW!! I really like the design of this peice, not to mention how cool she looks.
Beautiful and sensual...
Love her face. Well done!
beautiful piece there mario! (btw the arm looks ok)
