BT attempts portraiting - Rogue Mage line

Postby BTIsaac » January 26th, 2018, 10:27 am

Okay, so I figured I'd try drawing a couple of portraits for units that don't seem to have any and see how they end up. Since I encountered the Rogue Mage unit line a few times (with two different sets of sprites), I thought it would be a good place to start. More to be added later, feedback is appreciated.

Polishing needed as annotations suggest.

Looking good to me! There is no point in doing a lot perspective. I really do not think the red lines point out anything you need to consider.

A final cut would probably be placed above the highest knee anyway. I would suggest to still draw the boots and cut it later to a square at the knee and scale it to 400x400 as final step.

Hm. I just noticed the cape looks weird at the bottom. Way too stiff and uneven.

Coloring is going to be tricky due to technical difficulties, but until then, here's my Shadow Mage.

The sketches could be fine, it depepnds on what you are aiming for. These really don't look bad, and while th second guy's face needs work, there is plenty of time to work that out in the shading. Go for it.
(What techincal difficulties prevent coloring?)

The fact that out of my three computers (and tablet), the only one that supports internet browsing is too slow for photoshop. I have bad experiences with flash drives, but im might need to use one to transfer stuff between them. Also, i have one keyboard/ monitor less. But I'll get around it eventually.

Okay, Shadow Lord. You can tell I had Merlin in mind when drawing this.

It's official. I hate front view. Especially from this angle.
