More older stuff. Based on Arcia Rinslet from the video game: Chaos Legion.



This piece really caught my eye! The colors are brilliant and the pose makes it interesting to study. Great work! :D

This is so wonderfully gorgeous, it just became possibly my favorite piece in the portal. I don't usually comment on things just to sing their praise, but I felt compelled to do so with this.
There are so many things I love about it; her expression, namely, and the style. The vector style isn't necessarily new (though it's still a great style, and you do a decent job making it your own), but it's so masterfully done here. The shading, lighting, and the colors are all beautiful. The fluidity of the character, her position, and her anatomy all give it such an outlandish, whimsical feel. It's great. Her expression is so calm and warm that it just completes the whole piece.
The only problems are that her leg's position (above her head) looks just a tad awkward, and it can be a little difficult to make out exactly what one is looking at in the picture. The tendrils of smoke/mist/whatever are also a bit simple and awkwardly placed in relation to the rest of the drawing. Most of these flaws are minute and can be ignored, though, because this piece is simply gorgeous.
I can really see myself becoming a fan of your work in the future. It's amazing stuff. Keep posting, please!

I'm not one to fall back on easy excuses. You are 100% correct about my errors. The smoke/mist is very poorly rendered. Yes, it was an afterthought, at the time. Anyway, I've always wondered whether the leg was good enough, as well. The intent is to look as though it is bending behind her and then, at the knee bending so that the rest of the leg and foot is pointing more towards the viewer. However, I don't think I exaggerated the foreshortening enough to get that across. Of course, I'm not likely to go back to it now but I will try to be more fastidious, in future.

Thank you for the critique, sir.

Thumbs up
