Re: TSI gets back into it: Drake Enforcer

It's great! Especially the foreshortening, since that is so difficult to achieve. I do have two things I'm wonderting about, though both are minor and don't bother me very much: http://i140.photobucket.com/albums/r28/Aitze/Straps.jpg First, I'm not sure what these are - belt straps? If they are, the...

Re: Campaign art - Sceptre of Fire

Fair enough! I don't play much other than elves. I probably should. Disregard that part of my previous comment, then. x:

Re: Ellisae's portrait attempts

A bit. ^^ That's okay, though. I might just finish both and then see which is better. The face and hair's shading likely won't take very long; I anticipate more difficulty with the armour.

Re: Campaign art - Sceptre of Fire

Hermitness would also allow you to put all kind of rubbish into his beard and make it knotted and stuff. It looks awesome in my head, though that doesn't mean it'll look awesome in reality. It might be worth trying. I wanted to say that you could put twigs in it, but underground that seems unlikely....

Re: Ellisae's portrait attempts

I haven't been able to work on this for a while, as I lost the USB stick that had the working files. I just got it back, though - someone at my art school found it - which is great, because it also contains the only copies of around 20 assignments that would have taken weeks to redo. But now I can c...

Re: Ellisae's portrait attempts

It's not late at all, there's no reason I can't still change things. I'm not sure it's a problem, though - the edge of the shoulderpad-things, where your green line starts, is (due to clothing layers and thickness of the metal) quite a bit away from the actual arm. The red area has less layers, sinc...

Re: Ellisae's portrait attempts

I'm currently trying to figure out how the lighting would work, what colours to put where, etc. Just putting in shadows and lights quickly and then changing stuff around until it looks reasonable. I'm not sure about his hair colour, and the amount of gold lining on his armour, but the rest seems alr...

Re: Ellisae's portrait attempts

That's a pretty good idea, actually. I tried it, and it'll look something like this:
Gweddry sketch3.png
It still needs some work, as the face looks really strange when flipped horizontally, but I like it better now.

Re: Ellisae's portrait attempts

Ugh, the hand is driving me mad! I hope this fixes most of theproblems with it. Gweddry sketch2.png I also made a quick one-minute sketch of angry-face Gweddry - does this look more characterful? If so, I am not against making another for him. As annoying as the hand is, I am enjoying making this on...

Re: Ellisae's portrait attempts

Forgive me, I don't quite understand - which belt is that? There are two - the one on his waist and the one over his shoulder that attaches to the crossbow. The only of the two that goes over his chest is the crossbow one, but the bend there seems quite natural to me, as the breastplate itself is ro...

Re: Does UtBS need portraits?

Alright! I've started sketching stuff for The Eastern Invasion. I have a sketch done for Gweddry, with one for Dacyn on the way - according the the wiki Dacyn is 92 at the time Eastern Invasion starts, which I'm having a bit of trouble expressing in the sketches so far. Anyway, here's my sketch for ...

Re: Does UtBS need portraits?

I wouldn't call it picking, and the comments help me improve, so it's fine. Thanks for defending me, though, even if it wasn't necessary it is a nice thing to do. The high quality of the other art, including the ones that are being produced, is one of the reasons I am excited about trying to help. I...

Re: Does UtBS need portraits?

Alright, thanks for the quick replies. (: In regards to the critiques on my halberdier - I am aware there are a few problems with her, I just never intended for it to be used by anyone but myself, so I didn't feel like putting the energy in it required to polish it up. Still, thank you! I had not se...

Ellisae's portrait attempts - Eastern Invasion

As the title reads (EDIT: read, in past tense), I am wondering whether the "Under the Burning Sun" campaign requires updated portraits. My reason for asking is that I would like to contribute to this game, and while I am primarily a 2d computer artist and believe I might perhaps maybe be almost good...
