I've been trying to fix all the big anatomy issues with this one. This was humbling, good thing I'm taking a life drawing class soon.

Okay I've been working on the Leela/Motoko one a lot and I've changed some stuff, but I'll update it later. Here is an update on my Elizabeth portrait. I enhanced a contrast on the image I uploaded.

another update on elizabeth.

Also, I've been thinking about making another art thread strictly for NSFW stuff since I've been keeping this thread sfw for the most part. What do you guys think?

Start an alternate thread or just post all NSFW stuff in here?

I know, but it's so conveniently darker than everything else.

Thanks, honestly the sketch I started from with that one was crap. I totally fucked up the anatomy and had to resize everything. I think she looks fine now though. It was a challenging trying to get the shoulders and butt to balance out.

I've started drawing a robot that's going to be on a guy's album cover. It'll be darker and with neon lights and stuff when I'm finished.

Also been doing some gesture drawings and other sketches, but don't feel like posting those. Maybe if I polish some of them up.

I started this today referencing a photograph. I didn't the face proportions exactly the same as the source but I tried to get the lighting to match. I think I'm going to turn this in to a new Unmasked Tali portrait and whore some fan attention.

Also I finally discovered that I can have layers in photoshop that do only color or luminosity etc. Should be interesting to try that out, I think it'll make coloring easier.

Still not finished. But soon. Not sure what to do with his arm. I want it to look like be has it bent behind his back, but I don't think it looks right. May add some green in the top corner and add some tali marks, some little messages on the board and random polish. etc.

Well can't do anything else now. It's already on the front freaking page of deviant are and spreading through tumblr and reddit like wildfire. Also Ken Levine tweeted it. Holy shit.

Meanwhile it will get very little attention on newgrounds because that's how shit works around here.

Eh, just show a little bit more skin. Clearly male Shepard needs to be naked under his sandwich board.

I didn't. They someone must have shared it. I typically submit stuff to deviantart before it's finished and then when I'm happy with it I add it to groups so people would see it. I wrongly assumed very few people would visit my deviantart page before I was done.

Either way it's finished enough as is and a lot more places are showing this version.

Also yes I should be practicing some hawt and secksay male anatomies on male shepard. That's what all the 12 year old boys on this site want.

Well, it was submitted under your name and links to your DA.... maybe Dorkly themselves saw it and wanted to host it.

Seems that way. That picture sort of exploded on twitter and tumblr though. It got around.

Working on Elizabeth today.

Read through the entire Battle Royal thread and decided I wanted to make my own character. Seems like the life drawing class is working so far, I'm not using a reference on this one (except for proportions and womanly curves). I'm redoing the character that's posted on the front page of my thread.

She's going to be holding a big sniper rifle (might have a blade attached to it) and I'm calling her Nanxa.

Also I'm trying a different technique for shading. I've only put a few hours into this so far.

Another update on my battle character.

Not sure what I'll put in her other hand. Maybe a big knife/machete like weapon.

You paint very well. I've been watching your thread for some time to study your process (digital painting is a weakness of mine, especially where color is concerned). I only have a suggestion for the addition of armor, in that the legs and pelvis are generally much less important than the heart and other internal organs. what you have is definitely purely aesthetic at this point.

Yeah. I realize that. I want to eventually do some realistic heavily armored people, but this chick's armor is definitely not realistic at all. Although I might add some plating or something to cover her heart and chest area, especially since it's already covered by her shirt.

Well, I'm going to sleep so I won't miss another morning class. Since I posted I'll put an update on my this picture.

Also the what the process I'm using with this picture is: draw it on paper and make it look pretty good with some basic shading, in photoshop use a luminosity layer and a color layer, start shading using flat colors and avoid black, put down colors on the color layer and adjust the opacity as needed to make it look nice. Also I tend to adjust the vibrancy and levels to give it a little more of a kick.
