Tribal Dance by Kinky-chichi Tribal Dance by Kinky-chichi
Emiko again. doing the traditional Women’s Dance at the annual festival.
...there should be people gathered and other dancers in the bg, but i didn't want to crowd the image.
and those crystal looking things hanging in the trees behind are a form of lighting, they give off not heat though. oh, and the light source is also afew fire lit lamps around the place. :D

This is another pic that i started quite a while ago, and only just got to finish. i was really very pleased when i first drew the lineart because it was probably the first body i'd drawn without using any reference atall that i was happy with. not to say that this is a perfect body form or anything. ofcourse it's stylised, heaps.

anyway. i'm really pleased with it. i like purple, can you tell. XP

Pencil lineart, Coloured in PS elements 2.0, with mouse.

I know this is old but I feel like commenting. This is amazing. The fact that you do this with a mouse? Blows my mind.

yeah, i thought about the shadow...but with all these random light sourses around the place, i couldn't figure how to do it without making a huge mess of it.
multiple light sourses are hard. ;__;
and i hope she doesn't look too dark though. *ponders* ...but just aslong as she doesn't look pale it's ok. (only teh elves are pale, humans are darker. :D)

:nod:
i see.
yeah, you make a good point. multiple light sources are hard to draw. (heck, sometimes i still struggle with just one - when i choose to acknowledge it! lol)

the only suggestion i could make is that you make her shadow small and fuzzy, like impressionism. That way you've acknowledged it but also showed that multiple small light sources wouldn't render a significant shadow.

as far as being too dark...she's fine. i like it. you did a super job, as usual meh dear! :nod:

I love the composition! The entire thing has a great sense of movement, and the negative space really adds to it.
