Lucretia by Dualmask Lucretia by Dualmask
I couldn't sleep, so I was going through more old drawings and dug up this little gem from last year. I actually used it as part of my Daily Draw February challenge in 2012. Always kind of liked it despite its simplicity. I don't really know what drove me to color it... just wanted to whip something out I guess.

She's meant to be the nemesis of Christiana but I don't know when or if I'm ever going to tell that tale.

I like that the overall concept is backed up with a good quality, and everything is clear and well represented in the piece. Though some of the flaws I might have to point out is that although the choice to make the highlights for the skin very soft was a good one, the shadows are very strict on the skin and break some of the smoothness of the skin. The shadows on the skin should be soft, but maybe not as soft as the highlights, though having strict shadows is a very effective thing to keep on the armor, it makes it more solid and sturdy. Results vary when on the shading for the clothes, but here it works nicely.

Although it is not necessary, having the light from the right hand influence your lighting would make the drawing more 3-d. Though it is just something that is easily explained since it is "magic."

I do like the drawing, my only other beef with the drawing is fashion vs function, but that is just me. Other than that it is a cool style, and real effort does show in this drawing, so kuddos to you~

The metals are colored up so nicely in this picture, very sharp and tidy.

Thanks! With this I wanted to clearly differentiate between the various textures, something that can be tricky to present with cel shading alone.

Thanks! Really, it's the same way I've been coloring a lot lately, but this time it's over pencils with a paper texture and some noise. I think it made for a real nice, different effect.

Wow. Just...wow. Awesome render there. I love that kick when you're able to breathe new life into an old drawing and just see it POP.

Thanks! There's nothing like pulling up something that started out as more or less a throwaway sketch and turning it into something much greater.

Definitely. I have whole folders stuffed with crappy old sketches going back years, knowing one day I'll find them and be inspired. Have been doing a huge amount of that lately, as it happens.

I know it's most likely not what you want the focus on, but DAMN that is some deep cleavage! Stylish armor that shows alot of skin, classy butt-cape, and a sweet polearm design, there's a whole lot of design elements to love in this piece, and this coloring just brings it all to the viewer with a real pop :)

Actually, for this character, I actually did want that cleavage to be eye-popping. :D I don't often draw women where the chest is the focus...I'm an all around curve kind of guy, but for this character, making her more exaggerated that way was completely planned. Glad you dig it!
