I wanted to work on some portal 2 fan art because I finished the game a couple of days ago, thus here's what I'll be working on now. Here's the layout sketch, more or less just defining pose, layout, and perspective. What do you think? Any comments will help a bunch, I'll leave this here for about an hour while I work on some other things, so if you have anything to say that might help me make this a better image in the end, I will definetly take it into account and re-sketch and fix whatever you find that looks off.

Refined the sketch a bit, not working on the background yet but the next update should have some work on the background. Mostly just drew chell in. Any comments would be truly appreaciated. It might look like she's proping herself off with the portal gun, but that's because the railing is not drawn yet so it doesn't cover the portal gun like it should.

Everything's sketched more or less, gonna start adding possible values in the next hour to have an idea of the lighting I'll be using, any comments on what's done so far would be truly appreaciated. I'm pretty happy with what I have more or less but I think the background could use some work, I'm not sure how to make it better though.

Did a bit of value studying, it's all dodgy, and fastly done, because I'm just planning out how the lighting will work, and all that. Thoughts, comments, feedback, anything at all, truly appreaciated.

I normally tell people to push contrasts, but I think the shadows on her cheek and her right arm (our left) should be toned down a bit. I normally don't start really making harsh contrasts until I start to add color to the piece.

Really like the foreshortening btw!

Oh mate don't even look at it like that's going to be the actual contrast, that's more or less just where the shadows are going to be placed, the contrast right now is bullshit, I'm going to redo all of that when I start coloring. But in the mean time here's an inked chell :)

Also thanks so much for commenting mate, I really appreaciate it and I welcome it so keep posting, and I'm also glad you like it, I looked at a bunch of reference images just to get the foreshortening right, so I'm super happy that you liked it.

Colored and shaded chell with some mid tones, nothing too dark or too dark, cause I still haven't figured out if the background is good perspective wise, so I didn't want to add any actual ambient lighthing on the character since I haven't figure that out yet. Anyways, hope you like it. Any comment would be truly appreaciated.

I think that crease on her boobs shouldn't be there, like the top half of it should just be a flat gradient because the shirt wouldn't go into her cleavage like that
Other than that the colors look great!

Thanks so much for the feedback, I went back and fixed the things you told me to fix, and also threw in a couple darker values on her. Once I have her colors all down, I'll begin working on the background.

Background added, and shaded. Also increased the outline of the foreground a bit, to make it stand out. Thoughts?

Still haven't added the lighting that should tie everything together but the next update should come with that plus the portals.
