Zuko WIP update

I made him a little more "manly." Made his neck a little thicker and face a little longer. Loosely basing him off of Nishikido Ryo. He's not Chinese, like I imagine Zuko to be, but I liked his facial structure...

Avatar fan art - Zuko WIP

Finished watching Avatar this week and felt like doing a fan art. Chelsey wanted me to do Zuko and Sokka, so here's one of them.

I wanted to get some practice so I started a portrait of Zuko. His face doesn't feel quite right yet, like it's too feminine... Comments and critiques welcome!

Ballerina model portrait - cont

Almost done. Her hands are pretty tricky... they're obscured by shadows, interlocked and the ref I have is kinda small. Her shoes were the next most problematic part. The colored and a clothed version are next. Not sure if it'll just be draped cloth or clothing....

Week - catch up (cont)

More on the painting class. I liked the values and how her muscles are very sculpted. Hurray, athletic models!

Concepts - silhouettes

Some fantasy type silhouettes I did. Used a handful of custom brushes to create different shapes for ideas.

To commerate my first attempt at Alchemy, here it is for the world to see...


I totally don't know how to use this, but I looks good for concepts so I'm gonna give it a go. Hopefully my next images will turn out much better. ^_^;
