Dara "Elwen" Branduir Morä From The Chronicles of Arcea's universe©

Prints Available : here

There is something different this time. I wanted to try a new way of colouring to change my mind. Just a little exercise near to my old skill of traditional painting.

Photoshop : 8 hours
Photo as reference.

Edit: Third version.... And final one this time \o/
I change all the face of Elwen for the calendar and I found finally time to edit this deviation.

The old version is here: [link]

The lighting here is really nice - very effective and atmospheric, and it works really well with the traditional-ish effects on the grass. What I would say is that some variation in colour saturation would be nice and make the piece stand out: perhaps if the light was more saturated/warm and the dark was cooler/dimmer? The other thing that bothers me is the length of her legs - it seems to me her thighs are too long and slender, although that could be a stylisation thing. Overall though, it's a well-done piece with a nice painterly feel - her eyes and hands are very expressive as well.
What do you think?

Salut VyrL!
Je suis à l'école et il est l'heure de partir donc je ferais court. Le premier truc que j'améliorerais, puisque tu as demandé des conseils, je marquerais davantage le pli de son bras droit. Là il est quasi inexistant, ça gêne pas mal. Ensuite j'ai un doute quant à son sein gauche. Il devrait être peut-être un peu plus écrasé vers nous. La jambe de gauche me paraît très longue, mais c'est peut-être moi, je sais que tu références beaucoup.

Comme ta technique est différente de celle à laquelle tu nous as habitués, pourquoi ne pas avoir traité les cheveux avec des effets de lumière cette fois? L'applat empêche de comprendre la source lumineuse selon moi. Bref voili voilou, pas trop le temps d'approfondir, désolée!

A bientôt.

This is gorgeous beyond words. You've actually inspired me to work harder on my story, just from her eyes alone. Do you have references for all of your work, or is this solely the workings of your own amazing imagination? Awesome!

Sometimes I have references and sometimes I haven't. All depends of what I already in mind when I begin to draw ^^
