Oops

Without even knowing this was Skyrim fanart, I looked at it and told myself "this looks like Skyrim". Then I went back and looked at your first post and found out it was in fact about Skyrim. So, carry on, this is great.

And then I did a bunch of 30 second ones. I'm gonna try to do this several times a week or at least a lot more.

Another update. Changed the face, hair, lots of stuff, some. Started the dagger and arrows (not sure if she would be holding the bow or if it should be on her back). Also added a dragon.

Made some updates, like giving her a sword, fixing the arrows, and making the dragon look cooler.

First thing that came to mind was Fallout 3, specifically the Mothership Zeta crash site.

I personally don't think it looks like Fallout 3 very much. However, I did play Fallout 3 on my computer yesterday, and I did visit the Zeta crash site, so wow.

The thing on the left is supposed to be a giant skeleton thing. The idea is that they aren't even on Earth.

Started a sort of Ghost in the Shell cyberpunk paintings. Also trying a new technique for doing digital paintings. My goal is to get better at making cool compositions and lighting. Also better poses...

This is sick man. I really dig it. To be completely honest though the only thing holding this back from being a front-page-worth piece is the sketchy look to of it. The background and dragon are perfect the way they are, as in real life colors appear as basic blends from far away. But the warrior seems a little to sketched for the focal point of the piece. If you where to smooth it out the color and shading like you've displayed in other pieces, I feel it would take it to a whole new level.

Thanks guys, I might go back to that one sometime and polish it some more.

Updates on the new one. Trying to figure out this composition and of course crazy neon lighting.

Okay, changed a ton of stuff (like I always do with these...) I'm way happier with the face. I'll be redoing other stuff too. I was looking at how Artgerm shades in his pictures and tried to mimic that.

As much as I dig the cityscape, the vertical orientation you were using earlier works quite a bit better. The Major is better composed in the earlier version, and she actually looks placed in the scene. In the newer versions the Major looks like she's posing in front of a matte painting or floating over the water, and, as cool as it is, the city is way too detailed. Between the city and its reflection, there is a whole lot of activity going on in the background, so the Major stops being the focal point.

Plus, I really like the red/green contrast you had going on in the second WIP you posted.

How about this? I used a photo I took in Shanghai as the background (although I have other pictures with more neon looking buildings, but they're farther away).

Okay, I messed with the background some more and added some buildings from Shanghai. I think it looks cool now.

Definitely. I like the way you framed her head with those two buildings. Plus, with the city closer, you can use the city's character to define the Major's.

I started watching some videos on the fundamentals of drawing heads and stuff and did a bunch of drawing on paper. Before going to sleep I decided to draw some blurry little heads in photoshop with no references.
