Knight WIP

Post by Bloodtrailkiller on Thu 09 Jan 2014, 3:13 am


A simple pic I'm working on.
I'm going to try and go gung-ho on my digital painting stuff so... If you've any tips or something, now's the time to say it because this is gonna be a big step, I think. Going to be a multiple-day art piece which I'll hopefully be able to finish.

It doesn't have to be criticism, just things you like about my art, I know one of my key features is its sketchy, rough, and overall grim or strangled atmosphere. So I'm wondering if you'd like me to keep on that or try for some hardcore realism?
Things like that.

Basically used a simple step-step of line art.
Redrew the picture with a 5 pix[?] 50hardness brush then went down to a 1 pix[?] 50hardness brush.
Applied a quick shading with the airbrush using a GIMP standard brush 'Cell01' at default values.

At first I was confused because I thought you just simply swapped the 'lighting' on the same knight as above and hadn't gotten around to shading in the sword yet.

lel, I just realized I did switch the lighting. I find that amusing for some reason, I didn't notice until now, was just shading to comfort.
I'm going to be working helluva lot more on the sword, going to be pretty simple with a fancy cloth or something flying in the breeze for dramatic effect.

Personally, I think he needs a cape and perhaps an emblem. Beside that, quite good :D

I'm thinking about painting a sun on a green background on his shoulder, then erode it a bit.
Maybe add a sun to his chest piece or maybe a chain with a fetish on it.
