So here's what I'm working on at the moment. It's my City Elf Warden Laria Tabris (pronounced La-ree-a) and her cousin Shianni during the prologue. Guess at which point we're at =D

Would like some help and pointers on this one as I'm kinda struggling with parts of it, mostly Laria's dress and the effing dagger in her left hand :pissed: so


EDIT: Updated after some help from :iconbukittyan: tweaked the Dagger and added some folds to the dress.

EDIT EDIT: Lookit the pretty colours! Still not finished but I wanted peoples opinion on the bloodstains. Too much? Okay? Or not enough?

Marked Mature cause we's going into some adult themes here people. And I ain't in the mood to corrupt innocence any more than usual.

Poses from :iconmjranum-stock: stock photos. Will post the exact ones when this is finished.

I'll help! :D

The pose is really nice, and so is her expression. Both poses are nice actually. :) Her dress needs some folds, particularly around the area of her left leg and crotch. Clothes fold and wrinkle, and right now it looks like it's made of cardboard because it's so flat. The shape is good, it just needs some internal wrinkling to look more like cloth.

As for her right hand, I think you need to see fingers in order for the pose to look right. When grasping anything, your hand opens up more than a clenched fist, so your fingers are always shown. Showing a bit of the hilt will help too as it looks like the dagger is behind her hand, not in it. look at this example. that will give you a better idea. Also, maybe take a picture of your hand in that position too. I use photo references all the time. :)

I hope that helps!

Oo, love the colors! But if you're going to have that much blood on Tabris, I think Shianni should have some on her too. And maybe have some in the background too. Blood spattering gets everywhere. ;)

Oh there will be blood on Shianni as well as everywhere else never fear =D it was just I was worried that I may have gone overboard with the splatter ^^; I wanted it to look gory but not DAO weird gory

I think given it's DAO, you can get away with a lot more dramatic blood spatters. :)

So you think I need more on Liara as well?

I think she's got enough on her. But some dripping off her weapons would be nice too. :) Makes her look like she was fighting.
