PS Realism Practice...blah by ExiledChaos PS Realism Practice...blah by ExiledChaos
Practicing realism digital painting... I think I'm at the point were I need to just keep practicing and turning out crap until I get better xD; As you can probably guess, I'm not as all happy with this. I didn't really want to post it, but I do like some parts of it so I guess I'd see what you think. Skimmed over `Dianae's Tutorial for the uugtillionth time (I have yet to read it completely through, maybe I should :shrug: ) and I worked off a ref on google, which I can't seem to find the link for again =(

Originally, a character of mine named Nole (her name was Nox, but I kept calling her Nole accidentally, so I changed it xD; ) who is another character from my Lunar Hoax story. I'm not revealing what her powers are yet x3 but she has heterochromic eyes, one being hazel-green and one being brown (it's hard to tell here i think) and she has a glowy green aura about her 8D (whhhoooooo! actually... I don't know what that's all about >> ). She didn't end up looking like the Nole I have in my head D= I'll try again some time, with a better ref. I really need to learn how to fucking pace myself >.<;

Lunar Hoax, Nole, etc... blah blah blah Copyright Me (Rebekah C. aka. ~ExiledChaos etc...)

You know... In a way, that person kinda reminds me of a friend of mine. ._.

But a lovely drawing none the less. Love the green-ish theme around it. ^^

I actually think this was done really well for a practice piece. Really nice work on the eyes, especially. ^^

I think her nose looks a little too long, but it's still better than I could do.

I have an OC named Nole too o.o

But he's a ghost. A dwarf ghost. Not really like your Nole at all.

I will look at your picture.....AND COMMENT ON IT!! *intense orchestral music and epileptic typing sequences*

LOL, don't call your practice art crap nee-chan! This is a great practice piece....although, at first glance the lips look fairly out of alignment maybe because the shadow on the cleft under her nose is too broad? In other news...remember to sign in on MSN xD.

It looks pretty good to me. What stands out most is that there aren't any shadows at all on her face, which is making it super flat and thus much less realistic. She should have a lot more shadow and form to her face, and warmer skin tones-- don't just use the fleshy peach colors, layer in yellow and burnt sienna brown and red and even some blues and purples into the shadow.

The hair could also probably use more shadow and more blocky forms instead of individual strands, but it's definitely good. Better than I can do-- I totally fail at painting realistic faces even in normal media, let alone digital. D:

oh sweetie, you're way too hard on yourself!!! I think it's gorgeous! the only thing that's slightly off-putting if that her lips don't line up with the cleft under her nose, but even that only sticks out if you're thinking too hard! her eyes are absolutely amazing... I don't think I can look at them enough
