.:LunarHoax: N.o.l.E. :wip:. by ExiledChaos .:LunarHoax: N.o.l.E. :wip:. by ExiledChaos
1st project for my digital rendering indy. We had a critique, but I'm still going to continue to work on this and have it more complete in time for midterm.

My character Nole, in my story LunarHoax (copyrighted >> ). Lol, right now, she's still under development and doesn't really have any special abilities, besides being special. Her eyes are a nod to that, but it's unclear what she can do as of now. She's a little selfish and immature x3

Lol.... I ended up doing most of this in the 6 hours before class. I missed another assignment because of it ;__; (game design, oh no!!! Sorry beta testers, you have a longer wait now...)

Hope you like it, and I'm open to suggestions =)



Oh yeah. Also used this as a lighting ref: [link]


Nole and my story Lunar Hoax and it's elements are copyright to me (Rebekah C. ).

the hair isn't as polished as I'm accustomed to seeing from you, but I really *love* how textural the painting is on the rest (all those people who don't full view are missing out!)... you amaze me every time, love.

oh my gosh Mary! :hug: I love you!!! You're the first person to not adore the dumb hair I slapped on in 10mins xD. Seriously, everyone is like "omg! Hair!!!" and I took the least time on it >.< and their like "lol, face, whatever" ;__; sad. x3 thanks!! I'm torn on whether to make the texture more smoothed out and skin like, or to keep it textured =\ I don't know x3 I guess I could make 2 versions of it. lol.

I kind of think you have the best of both worlds already, because it looks so smooth on the smaller view, but so wonderfully texturally engaging on the larger view w/out losing the details... although if your overachiever is looking for a nudge, I'd naturally be delighted to see what you envision for a second version! (no one said anything about the face? and you were so attentive to every minute detail! seriously, it looks like there are whole galaxies or clouds of uncultivated power contained in those eyes alone, it took my breath away!)

Neeeeeeee! *dies of happiness* xD lol, thank Mary. I'm really happy about the eyes, but like always, I think I can do better ^^; I need to be careful not to push it too far though >>;

Hm. The hair is good, but the rest of the piece reads as a bit muddy. I think the messy edges on the scarf is a fabric texture, right? But it reads as a little unfinished. Maybe go in with some smaller brush and make little strokes to seem more like fabric. I'd also work on smoothing some things out (like the shirt and maybe parts of the face) and work on your shadows. They might look darker on your screen, but from here the darkest darks seem to be all one tone, and they should be darker where the edges overlap (between the scarf and her neck, between the scarf and her jacket.)

I'd also maybe put some warmer tones in her face? Her hair is very red and she's looking rather pale and pasty because of it. Also maybe put some evidence of the lighting in the background, instead of just a flat color.

Still, pretty nice. Are all the portraits you're doing going to be head on, or are you going to do a variety of views?

thanks for the crit Beth =) yeah... in the critique yesterday when he had it up on the projector, it looked really dark =\ I need to test it on different screens to make sure I'm preserving the colors. lol, omg... EVERYONE liked the hair, and it's the thing I ended up slapping on last second xD; And yeah, I was going to make the scarf and shirt look more like fabric, but I ended up running out of time and patience .__. But I'll be fixing that.

as for the pov, ehhhh... I've been toying around with changing it, so it's not head on. The lighting will change thought for each person, and each with have a different color theme.
