Saw this on twitter, had to come here and say you nailed the classic Blizzard aesthetic perfectly. This looks like it's ready to murder a lost viking at any moment. I feel like it transcends just WoW and captures the feel of any old school Blizzard games. This would make a great Rock n' Roll Racing power-up, too. Tarquinn ain't avoiding this mine!
Thanks a lot man :)
It was kinda hard to do this so i'm glad this doesn't look so bad.
Thanks for following me on twitter and for the review btw, i appreciate it :)
I really love this! The shading on her stomach is quite nice and I love the color and texture. You should try and work a bit more on your line work, either work on line weight or work on getting more contrast on your shading. The lines that separate her breasts and the bridge of her nose for instance would likely look better if they were just done as shading. Her hands are another place where more attention to the line weight would be good, though you do a god damn stellar job of drawing them. I'm always super excited when you post something new, there's something unique about your art that I really like.
In all your drawings I really like how you do hair. You do a really good job of layering and emphasizing strands. I think you did a nice job of shading the cheek facing the viewer and also the neck and chin, particularly near the hair.
The face is a little off, the mouth is a bit too far back. Try to think of the face as relatively flat with the features coming off from it.
Some of the color, especially on the arm, seems to either bleed past the line work, or not quite make it to the line completely. If you can get good at using masking in photoshop you can fix that. It might also help you to be a bit more bold with color contrast because it'll give you the freedom to go nuts without messing up the form.
Don't be afraid to go darker with your shadows. Having a strong contrast between shadows and highlights makes the image pop a lot more and generally looks more interesting. The important thing is to get good at blending so that the contrast isn't too jarring, unless jarring happens to be what you're going for, like for something dramatic or what have you.
Overall you're doing a great job of improving, and I really like this drawing. I've also got several tutorials I can PM you that should illustrate exactly what I'm talking about with all the criticisms I've given.
I love that you take a more realistic approach with your art, it's refreshing to see. I'm curious to see what you do next.
I' m really happy that you gave this piece some of your time, it's great to get such a detailed feedback. I'll take any tutorials I can get. God knows I have some learning to do.
