The Northern Spear by halohunter The Northern Spear by halohunter
Something a little more finished.
Pencil Sketch, concept evolved in PS CS2.

Focus was Costume Design for a character, Talea, from a book I am working on.
I wanted to experiment with painting different textures & clothing shapes.
I got a little carried away and shelved the idea. Finally got back to it and quickly added in a background. My first landscape attempt... def going to be something else I need to practice.

I'm just happy to have it behind me now :)

Lancer is a D&D Class? I never played the table top games but I did play Baldur's Gate & NWN until my fingers bled!

Heh, same here... I've always gotten more into the computer game versions than the pen and paper.

Very nice. I love the leather leggings. I've been trying to produce that soft shine, but haven't come close to your success with it.

ty for the feedback :) TBH I did not really know where to start with the different materials, only that I had an idea for which materials I wanted to go where. The 'suade' part of the upper leggins was done with a speckled brush with almost no highlights. The shiner part of the leggings was done with a low opacity airbrush with no texture and a much greater range of tones, including some tighter highlights. Hope that helps.

You're welcome. Thanks for sharing your technique. I'll have to play around some more with different brushes and see how that goes.

Pretty awesome job done, especially designing and drawing details :clap: I really like her outfit. And the background is quite good ether, I'd never thought that it's a first landscape attempt :nod:

ty for the feedback :) Clothing design was something completely foreign to me so I had to do some reseach! But in the end it was a fun piece that opened my eyes to the importance of fashion in character design.

It's always great to learn something through creating a piece of art. And yeah, fashion is quite important, you can show who your character is with its help.;)

I like the fact that she's a female fantasy-type character, and yet is dressed in sensible (by our standards) clothes.
