Angel by CarlHolden Angel by CarlHolden
Edit: Painted a new face, worked some more into the hair and adjusted colours/ softend areas.


Original Description:
Just wanted to try something like this. I need to mix less colours into the skin tones, keep it simple. Expect more like this for a while, hopefully I can get them to look good instead of in that uncanny valley that I hit quite a lot.

Step by step gif to this image.

There is an astounding level of detail going on in those feathers. My God. The metal details and the cloth folds are equally nice. The only thing that brings the image down a bit is the face. It's not badly rendered, rather it seems a bit pinched around the nose, like the nose is too small, and the face is at a slightly crooked angle. I think if you were to raise the face up and enlarge each of the features a bit, it would work better.

But again, cannot get over how tactile those pink features are.

Cheers for the critique. I'd pushed the features on this illustration towards magna / anime with ill effect. Indeed pinching the nose and making the mouth smaller then the eyes bigger which has had the uncanny valley effect on it. I'll most likely be reworking it when I'm free for personal work again.

Thanks once again and have a nice day.
