Been trying to work less and less with using refrences, so ended up doing this paint/sketchup. It's sort of a semi speed paint, took my time on some different lighting techniques but didn't work out too well so went with something slightly more simple.

The hairstyle I initially had going was looking less realistic and more capcom-cartoony type of style. This hairstyle reminds me a little more of Lulu from FFX. Just my thoughts though. :P

This is an illustration, I don't really intend to finish it, although I drew a hand on a separate layer that I did want to put into the picture that has a perspective of being her's with her finger on her lip, or someone elses hand and fingers sliding across her face. The environment would need to be dark and gloomy making this picture more of a haunting piece of work. Either way, I'll decide later on.


10 stars for being a concept

I understand that you did not want to use a reference and I think this worked out well. Something about both, her nose and perspective of her right eye seem 'off' but they were executed nicely. The lighting / shadows look good over all except maybe inside of the ear.

The hair looks awesome, the only thing I would say is the chopsticks in her hair could use some more detail, but it's fine either way.

Thank you! Couldn't agree more with you there, the ear I didn't pay a whole lot of attention to, I just knew I wanted her to be an elf lol.
