Really Amazing Fan Art guys, I'm in awe
Something I'm working on. I started it sometime last year and forgot about it due to lack of time from work, happened to find it a few days ago and decided to try to finish it while I don't have work until January. :3
Looks very nice so far, can't wait to see what it looks like colored in (:
wow that looks awesome so far asera, nice job
From left to right - Deathwingz, or Sherion, my warlock, an attempt at designing Atramedes's humanform, and Ortheka under Yogg-Saron's influence. I think I'm getting better at human and human-like faces...
I keep forgetting to post my stuff. :P
*The top three sketches are redesigns of an older Argus critter of mine. I didn't include the cerata/tentacles on the coloured version because I was lazy.
*The coloured one under those sketches is another Argus animal. It's what you'd get if you crossed a hydrothermal worm and a giant sloth. I can't decide if I want it to have 4 or 6 legs.
*Beside that one is some random sloth/armadillo, and a parrot/turtle thing.
*Below are two concept sketches of the Quel'dorei Steed. I went with a more primitive, vicious look. The elves need more dangerous looking steeds. Blizz toned them down too much.
*A quick little netherdrake, based off of a manta ray, and other ray species.
*Beside that are the two rough sketches of my tattoo idea.
Most of my male worgen designs have barely made it past the sketch phase. I just lost interest. I couldn't find a good design, but I finally did with this guy.
I am so damn pleased with how he turned out.
His name will be Basil.
(I added a little tail for fun. At first I was kind of peeved at all the people begging for worgen tails, but then I felt that a little bob-tail wouldn't hurt. It still peeves me though when I see worgen with huge fox tails, they're too distracting.)
After I finished him up I took an old sketch of Kieran (my orc/worgen cross) and fixed it up a bit and added some colours and censor undies (high waisted/antique undies are amazingly hard to get right ).
I think I'm going to go ahead with the whole sex-shifter concept. If druids can change their body structure to that of bears, cats, and birds, then sex-shifting is fair game.
(*Please don't bawww over Kieran's ribs. You can absolutely have big ol' milkers and have your ribs showing. Ribs showing does not mean a person has an eating disorder.)
Another update for The Houndmistress.
I fixed up Tully's face and belly, gave Honey her spots and colour corrected her (her pink skin was too muted).
(You can tell I'm starting to get lazy with those censor bikinis :P)
A quick and fun Gigeresque portrait of Damla that I did after watching the Prometheus trailers. Giger has apparently come back to work on Prometheus with Ridley Scott. I'm all excited! You can't have a movie set in the ALIEN universe without including Giger, you just can't (yes, ALIENS was good but the rest were...ergh).
If you don't know who H.R. Giger is, look him up. You won't be disappointed, unless you are a prude.
Giger paints/airbrushes some of the most beautiful females.
This last one looks fa nominal. I like the veins through the lighted parts!
Yeah, the warlock is the one on the left. I want to transmog her in some white robes set. I think they'll look nice with her skin and hair. Or I'm going to get her Naxxramas warlock tier and impersonate Faerlina, 'cause my lock has the same face as her.
Some Twilight's Hammer stuff for you.
This was born in a conversation with my friend, so the credit for the idea goes to her =) I'm just keeping up with my Ascendant stuff =)
And again - the link to my DA is in my sig.
1st: Happy Holidays to everyone :-)
2nd: Sheesh, Rachel: http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/f/20...ox-d4hscdp.png
Please message me on DA and "learn me" to paint with colors like that! So beautiful, I just love it.
3rd: I "finished" the sketch of Sindragosa I had started and I think shared with you all a while back:
She began her life as an 11" x 14" traditional sketch and then was completed in CS5 on my new Cintiq 24HD!!!!!! I was a VERY good girl this year ;-)
Will be inking and coloring soonish, however if you are a colorist and want to have a go at it let me know and I can send you a .psd file to work with.
Gosh, it's been quite a few months since I last really graced a good visit here. There's been so much good art here it's ridiculous, and there's no way I could comment for all of them (wondering about taking a re-read of the whole thing some time soon, as I find myself with increasingly more free time in the future). Roughly a month ago I felt a surge of inspiration again, however, and started to draw with my tablet again. I'm still not very good at it, and I certainly still have a lot to learn, but I feel that I already have progressed if only a little bit.
The result of some reading and practice are these two, which I am unable to link at my current post numbers if I recall correctly. They are what I made to be a present for certain important friend of mine .
While I'm not that fond of how the colored version ended up looking, it does hold the credit that it was my first attempt at coloring something like that on GIMP. And making these already taught me a few things to keep in mind for future attempts. First, prepare a bigger image and space for more detail to fit in accurately, second, make sure the reference material is high quality, so you don't end up "reproducing" from "low quality" source... *cough*, and Thirdly, I need to discover a better coloring method with a tablet, or learn to draw cleaner pictures so fill in tool will work better. Regardless, there are never too many tauren ladies there, are there?
That aside, I do feel like they are an upgrade to some of my past works . I was influenced a lot by certain skilled tauren artists in the webs, particularly used Shalinka's Female Tauren tutorial to get the hoofs and legs really working again! (I still need work with it, and to add a bit of my own flair to things, once I learn how the bodyshapes work, maybe read up a few anatomy books with the inevitable time taken recovering.)
I thought about what you guys had said for the piece Tony would color, and honestly.. I haven't done anything for myself in a long time. All the inks I had were commissions, and I just didn't have anything that I could say was for me..
So I did this:
Trying my hand at one of my favorite styles: Art Nouveau.. Well, more specifically -- Alphonse Mucha.
Other than that it looks very nice. Wish I could draw hair half so well.
Nah, you're fine!
I have seen a lot of artists do something similar with horns on models, and I liked the way it looked rather than keeping the same angle of the closest horn.
If you load the Blizz dragon models into WMV, many of them have a similar thing going on with their horns when viewed from the side. . . something with the curve of the horns I guess.
Thanks for the comment, though. . . critique is always welcomed :-)
Alex has similar horns to what you're going for. I can see what you're trying to do with the way her further horn looks like it comes out the top of her head, it just feels like you could tweak your version a bit.
I can't necessarily teach you, but I can put up a process image with explanations. No one can actually teach another how to do art. You can go through anatomy books and study how professionals paint, but you have to teach yourself. Practice, practice and practice some more. Don't worry about style, it'll develop as you learn.
I hate saying this, but when trying to figure out the anatomy of something, always consult anatomy books and photo references first, then look at how other artists stylize. Never reference an artist for anatomy unless you already know what your doing and you're just looking for stylization techniques.
I've actually had to tell a few people in the past not to use my stuff as reference since I make mistakes. I do have a draenei leg tutorial thingy, but that was just to point out the comparative anatomy between human and unguligrade limbs. I still encourage people to look at photos and anatomy books first.
You can absolutely teach people how to create art. . . I went through 4 years of it :-P Technique is taught, composition, how to think about a piece, how to see color. I never took any of the digital art classes because I just couldn't fit them into my schedule. . . which is why I try to learn from people I admire online now ;-)
With digital art, it is very helpful to know what programs and brushes people use, how the opacity and fill options are set, etc. Then you can use that as a basis to experiment and get your own techniques down, that's what I'm really curious about. Your color work is very vibrant and painterly, and I really enjoy that. Do you use Photoshop of Painter?
I have been playing around in Painter and it is a powerful program and quite awesome, but for some reason I am more comfortable with Photoshop.
Keep up the nice pandaren work. . . I like the variety in the sizes of all your models.

I love Alex btw. . . she's my next subject.
