(Probably)Saber[Art]

Unread post by xthr » December 7th, 2008, 5:21 am

Well, you see, I decide I wanted to do another piece of fan art in a different style from what I've been doing lately. So I decided to draw saber in a more ..."realistic"... style. I... DID manage to do it. But uh the results... lol.

You guys tell me if this is win or fail :\

XD yeah. That's why I put "probably?" in the title. I think it turned out okay, but as of whether she looks like saber... lol.

I guess I can always make the excuse that this is when she was still king, and is still grimy from battles and such. Maybe. :\

Well I have to say it's a bit masculine as well. It's not much of a fail if you ask me though, just something that doesn't suit my tastes. In any case te pic does look good, need some work though but good none the less.

actually the eyes are a bit manly as well. However, since I used a real person as reference, it is to be expected that it doesn't seem quite as feminine as someone in anime :P

But yeah I agree, heavy shadows around the chin makes it look kinda masculine.

Oh my! What a beautiful man! :lol:
Nah, I'm just kidding! It looks good, though a bit masculine, as you have already stated. Considering she is from caucasian decent, perhaps the lips wouldn't be so full, you may want to make them less.... full.... I need a thesaurus... Another problem is that her neck seems quite wide, try making it thinner, perhaps that can do the trick to strip some of her "manliness". I am not sure, but it seems to me that her upper lip may also be posing some problem, more specific, the connection between the nose and the lip.... I think that region has a proper name but I just can't remember it! Anyway, it might be useful to move it back a bit. Weeell, those sugestions are all I can think of in a glance, and I really don't know if they could be of any use to you. Hope they are and they don't end up screwing the pic if you follow them :P
I liked the hair, what brush did you use? Those lines look kinda weird but seem to go with the pic just fine. It was in Painter, right?

Have you heard about the saying that goes something like "drunk people and kids tell no lies"? Well, that's just a fallacy.

Yeah I did this in painter mostly as a test for the program. It's like my 3rd time using it, and it feels very foriegn to me :\

All the brushes I used were in the artist's oils brushset.

Oh but I used photoshop afterward to overlay some colors, and those lines were also added in photoshop with a brush I "made" (read: copied from someone's painting XD).

Anyways, I don't really feel like fixing this too much. Maybe I'll change the lips a bit? but I want to paint more and more to get better, so I might just leave this as is for now

Even though its your third time in painter, you shear talent really shows. I have a hard time portraying characters when it comes to fan art sometimes, so i can't tell you much about the resemblance. apart from what everyone else stated, i think the neck ended up too wide.

I love it though, she looks pretty serious, like she's cleaning her hands while deep in thought.
