Study 03 ~ IN DEFIANCE


I'd initially planned to never release this on NG, even stating this on a few Discord servers. But I've changed my mind. It's time to actually show it for what it is. I'd been afraid before, and made to feel afraid that I could never quite reach the magical quality that I yearn to have in my art, but I'm not going to be afraid anymore. This piece is uploaded in defiance of those who did give me disparaging remarks, all outside of NG. I draw because I'm moved to draw, and while this may not happen as frequently as, say, with my music, I refuse to waste what ability I have.

The study involves my Reyvateil OC, Tetria, once again, but I sincerely hope that it's a lot more realistic than what I'd previously attempted. Face structure, but also face size is hard. Foreshortening came easier than expected, but it's probably a bit wonky due to what shading I did use on the arms, for instance.

In the back is the *actual* skyline of Preston, the city I call my home. I reproduced it by opening an image of the skyline on one window, having Sketchbook on another, and simply drawing what I saw.

Outside of these issues, I was so proud of where I'd come with this that I even set it as my avatar on most platforms, including NG. This is also the first time that I'm including a study of mine in the Art Portal, as 'not a sketch'. I just hope that the next time I attempt to do another study, it comes out as clean as this one -- and hopefully more proportionate.

Sketchbook. (Yes, because it's completely free now and I am absolutely enjoying it.)

Previous attempts at trying to understand how that character should look:

Can't say I am good to draw like that, but I do not like the mouth area of the drawing. Otherwise well done

Not bad, but I like the other two attempts more.

Troisnyx responds:

That's fair enough. ^_^

Cool. more realistic than previously artworks. I like this style more.

Troisnyx responds:

Glad you do, thank you ^_^ I'll admit to loving this style more, as well.

This is and will always be beautiful! Great job!!!

Troisnyx responds:

Thank you so much aaaaaa 💖 I'm humbled by the high praise.
