Itheluna new version (updated) by Ciuva Itheluna new version (updated) by Ciuva
It seems like I never quite finish with this picture. This picture is of a character called Itheluna (she is an elf, hence the category), and I first uploaded a picture of her (this picture, in fact) a little more than ten years ago. Technically I submitted this picture earlier today, but had to fix some small things, so here it is again. The original story (which might be changed) is in the various older versions of the picture.

First, there was the sketch, back in early 2005:

It was initially a gift for a dA friend of mine, I think. Then I coloured it a few days later:
Never Forget by Ciuva
Aaand then sometime in 2015 I didn't know what to paint and ended up redoing it just because, but didn't post it here before earlier today:
Itheluna new version by Ciuva
It's very similar to the current version, but I've worked more on her hair, used some custom brushes for the background so it's not just vague colours, and worked on some minor details I'm not even sure you can see. I really itched to try out some new custom PS brushes, but I got annoyed with the picture I was working on and decided to refine this a little bit instead.

well there is to much air brush up here, your face shoudl be made with sharp brushes for focal point, light is bit to strong and some anatomy problems but still keep it up! good work.

Thanks for your comment and the very useful feedback! It was supposed to be a bit ethereal and dreamlike (hence the strong light), but perhaps I overdid it...

I like the way you coloured it, however I think you might have kept a more visible line for the mouth and eyes(?)

Thank you :) I've recently come back to drawing from a fairly long hiatus, and felt like I've hardly improved at all since I started - so I'm very glad to hear that I have :D
