    Super solid, bro.

    You can already see the improvement from the elk piece to the newest one, which is impressive. I'm excited to see you tackle another landscape with your new techniques in mind, I think things will be more cohesive overall if you aren't wrestling with the process.

    Love the mood in the new one, and the light is looking good too.

    Wow! I love that new piece, great feel to it. How much of it is photo vs painting?

    The royal archivist is awesome too! When you change up his beard, I think you should consider 1 or 3, I like those :D

    Thanks! The new piece is probably a 90/10 split between photos and hand-painting. The photos required a lot of tweaking/distorting/painting-over/blending modes/etc to get right, but yeah...mostly photos, for sure.

    For the archivist dude, I'll probably go with 1, possibly 4.

    Great stuff, really dig numbers 3 & 9! Fun colors and layering.

    Thanks! I think those are two of my faves, too. I'm working up #3 into a more developed piece :)

    You're probably not gonna go back into this one, so sorry about the late notice, but something I didn't notice before (was checking it out on my phone) is the lighting on her right hand (our left). It either looks oddly blocky or like she has a bit of vitiligo.

    Overall it looks great! the sheen on her stockings and overall cloth textures are really well done!

  • NightDragonNightDragon 6th Grade Username Registered User regular
    Thanks! That hand actually gave me trouble, so after tweaking it forever, I decided to just leave it be and move on. :P But you're right, it's definitely blocky.

    That's so damn good! She turned out great, I love the face! And if we are getting nit-picky, do you think the left eye is a bit low? I could be wrong...

    I really like the lighting and the details... do you use direct references or what? I'm curious about your process...

    Such nice clean drawings, ND :)
    I don't know too much about concept art, but what sort of project is a sheet like this intended for? Is there a reason it's all middle gray? I have the screen brightness turned all the way up and it's still a bit of a strain to look at. Not much of a comment on the art, but a sincere question.

    Yay! More ND stuff! :D

    I have a question. How did you get that render for the 3d bas for your first pic? I've tried to make quick 3d bases before, but never get anything even close to that good to render out.

    Those icons look maddening to work on, but they are very efficient.

    Were the weapons ever modeled? It'd be way cool to see an example of one once they got to 3D. They look great.
