A Shade of Magic


Well, my linework is starting to get real good, my style is becoming cohesive and my technical abilities have improved tenfold since I started practising everyday.

I've been playing around with different shading styles to see what fit better with my linework and this seems to work about as well as my crosshatching test did.

Let me know what you guys think about this amalgamation of linework and painterly style shading.

It looks awesome bro! Nicely done but her *ahem* is not quite placed right though

The folds and creases in the clothing look very well done. A bit more color would bring quite a bit more to the image.

Thanks! Yeah I know what you mean about having some color, but right now my ability with color painting sucks big time, that's why I stuck with monochrome values for this one. Maybe I'll try doing a future piece in color!

I do like the linework and style. These colours always have appealed to me.
I think I would love it more if the breasts and bottem would have been allot smaller and a more realistic size.

I always have more respect for artists when they don't go for the more ''erotic'' type of illustrations.
True, allot more views, but is that really the audience you want?

Anyway looks good,

Keep it up!

Safst3r responds:

Thanks for your honest opinion, I completely get what you mean. But to be honest I just draw what appeals to me haha, I'm a sucker for buxom women. After all, what is art but an expression of a persons taste and emotions? I draw from imagination something I can't get in reality, and if that draws any sort of audience, I don't really think it matters who they are, I draw for self satisfaction and am just sharing it with the world.

Thanks for your encouraging words!
