Eldritch Wish by justjingles Eldritch Wish by justjingles
My tiefling warlock. I just wanted to fart around with effects and THE SHINIES because I was so sick of doing observational work for school. I'm pretty blah on this because it's sort of a pointless pretty picture, but it was nice and brain-numby.

I promise I'll do some epic Sylvie soon.

UPDATE FROM THE FUTURE (3/23/13): This piece is really important to me artistically because it represented the shift in my art from line-based work to my gradual evolution to a more painterly style. It was an uphill battle and very frustrating for a while and it paid off.

Inspired by [link] with permission. I can't recall who made the swirly brush; was in my unlabeled folder. Texture courtesy of ~Enchantedgal-Stock, thank you.

Hmm. Well. You look at this as much as you possibly can, and you try to see where this came from. You compare it to the original picture and then you look back a few times, and you can realize, that as compared to the other original picture that this is something brand new. Something that's taken a life of its own. You can feel the flow of direction, you can see the warmth of the picture from the use of colors in this picture also. The anatomy seems improved somewhat compared to your older works, and the image leaves a somewhat strong imprint in ones mind for someone who hasn't seen the original picture. The warmth in this piece seems very nicely conveyed in such a way that you can follow the flow of direction which originally spawns from her hand. The relaxed, serene look on this Tiefling's face gives one a little bit of thought over whats going on in her head...or the emotion felt. But what constantly comes back to the top of my mind is just the warmth and shades and degrees of the yellow's in this piece. All in all, I see why you've taken time off... and if this is whats awaiting, I really cant wait to see what crack you drop on us.
What do you think?

How did I not see this before? I want to spend an hour drooling over this, but I must sleep. Clavicle piercings, what?

Extremely cool.

Thank you so much! I'm glad. :) They are indeed clavicle piercings, but she is a wimp so she had magical anesthesia when they were done. LOLPHAIL IREM.

It's not, don't give her credit. xD She had someone enchant her with Sleep while it was done, she's such a wimp.

Irem: I beg to differ.

I've heard of people who pierce their brains, they are so hardcore.

'Course, those were cartoon characters, so that may not count.

AHHH! SHINYS! Ok on a more serious "I'm in art school note" I love the color combinations of course, and I like the leveled shadow in the background, collarbone piercings, to cool. That fabric is beautiful, and your work with lighting ads a wonderful warmth and balance. A lesser woman could have overdone the shiny, but you did great. The texture on the horns looks great, really ads depth, I feel like i could reach out and touch them. Your skin rendering is beautiful really smooth brush work, but I wish I could see some improved rendering in the texture of the hair so it would stand up and apart from these other really beautiful elements, because when i look at it metal feels like metal, horn horn, skin skin, but the hair looks like it has the same rendering as the jewelry. Bind you on that note your line work is beautiful and the hair lays wonderfully, very believable. Only other comments i can think of, i don't know how i feel about that drop shadow under the eyebrow, I feel like it pulls it off the face a bit towards the end. Finally nit picky the placement of the thumb feels detached from the hand because I can see to much of the attachment of the thumb and the palm compared to how much i can see of the pinky side of the hand.

Over all LOVE IT!

Ah, I see! Thank you very much for the insightful, thoughtful, and precious critique. I REALLY appreciate how much time you put into giving me feedback! I will work as best as I can on rendering hair with a different texture, any tips? Now I'm off to class, where I shall see you! XD

I think it's lovely! Of course I've seen it before, but just viewing it now, it hit me again and I find myself strangely mesmerized by it. I think the skin tone is what I am really drawn to the most, it has a wonderful mix of colors.

I like it even if it was just brain-numby. The horns remind me of this dragon digimon you created way back in the day and had some random girl on-line draw and then were displeased slightly with the results. Even if it may seem somewhat pointless, it's fantastical and that always brings me joy Yes, a very shiny picture. It really highlights the way that you tend to do noses. This girl as strong neck/shoulders. Don't make excuses for your art. It's still art.

Your coloring skills are on full display here - anatomy looks right, and your character design is always good - it's the color that really gets my attention here.

The black horn with red lines is a particularly notable.

Haha, true! Hey, question; remember that picture you did for me of Irem? I was wondering if I could use a small version of it (like, big avatar sized) as her image in the little "wikipedia" my DM put together for our campaign. It's just a tiny corner of the internet, but I love that portrait so much and I thought it would make a great mini-visual in the corner of that one page. I'd put your name/pseudonym underneath it as credit of course.
