Still enjoying and evolving the new style! What do you guys think about this technique? :>

Visit my blog [link] for: the sketch [link] & base colors [link] !

This is the concept of a princess from my new personal project (has anyone counted how many personal projectsI've already had and abandoned? well it won't happent THIS time!). I hope that you'll like her! :aww:

You can quickly grasp the personality of this princess the second you look at the concept. You know she's not going to be frolicking in the gardens all day. The Illustration does a great job of telling you about the character without needing any description on the side.

The Technique itself while it may be in development looks great. The Contrasting Highlights and the color scheme as a whole work really well together.

The only problem I have with this piece, and it isn't so much a problem as a personal nitpicking, is that it feels a little stiff. It's not necessarily the pose alone, perhaps a mix between this style's proportions mixed with the pose.

Overall this is a great piece, I'm glad I'm subscribed to your deviations and can't wait to see more!

Vision: Fits the title beautifully and has a wonderful energy. The fluidity of the way the lines, colors and placement of items draws your eyes to look at all up and down is nicely done. A princess with a sword is not too new of a concept but this feels refreshing. Nicely done.

Originality: As said above the idea of a princess that can fight is not very new and has been done by many people/companies. But this feels refreshing as it has with other media depending on the appearance and presentation. It does feel original in thanks to the style and expression on her face. Wonderful.

Technique: The detail in general is excellent! I love how the lighting and shading work together so beautifully along with the small details. I love how the shading has been done on the clothing to give it depth. I also like how the lighting gives added sense of being able to touch and feel the softness of the fabric. This is especially demonstrated on the cloak/cape and the red fabric of the overlaying skirt.

The shoes are unique and nicely designed. They give a unique feel to the outfit and character. I like the color choices and how the top of the shoes meet the end of the pants. Her top is lovely in how it is layered as well as the colors. They play nicely off the other and I like the corset like thing around her waist. That is a nice touch as well as the detail to add in the strings on the side.

Her hair is also nicely done in its fluidity of motion and the detail to show lines for strains. There's enough lines so it isn't flat yet not so many to be overdone. It gives a feeling of her having turned her head one way and then the other with the frown on her face. I also love the way her eyes were done, the color and shine adds to the emotion of displeasure. Her frown also adds to this, giving a feeling that she is staring down someone she must fight that is a foe or is hearing something from a family member that is not something she had wished to hear.

The shimmer and shine on the jewelry is gorgeous! I love her headdress and the way the jewelry is also appearing to hold her hair into a bun like style that has been pulled back. Her earrings are also very beautiful along with her necklaces. I like how the clip was done to hold the cloak/cape on and the bracelets on her arm guards.

The detail on the sword is equally as well done. The shine gives a sense of sharpness. The detail on the hilt I love. It looks and has a feeling of being very sturdy and strong. Excellent work.

Impact: I felt the emotion through her expression of displeasure and as if she had walked in on a scene that was not planned. The body posture also tells of the scene being one of a serious or somewhat serious nature to where she's listening and sizing up if/when to fight. Nicely done.

Overall: I think it's a beautiful piece overall. I love the details big and small. I love how fluid the movement of the fabric and hair are as well as how real the eyes feel. The shoe style is a unique choice yet it feels like it works with her so is a nice choice. I like how the lighting was done to give a sense of magic and fantasy. Wonderful job. The only small thing I could possibly say is on the top of the shoe that (when looking at the screen) right perhaps if it did not look just the tiniest bit disconnected on the side and as if it is a separate piece than the shoe, then it might be even better. Yet this is a minor detail and is fine since it is hard to catch all the tiny things. Wonderfully done with a refreshing feel for a princess.

I agree with *blo0p - I absolutely love your work and can definitely see the character and personality shine through instantly. I love the style and find it very fun and joyful.

Yes perhaps the pose is a bit stiff maybe brought on by the body where the torso seems to be straining as the pelvis pulls in a different direction - but indeed that is if someone nit-picks

- LOVELY work and I'm certainly excited to see more from this new style of yours and see to how it develops :D (very happy to be watching your work) :D
