Portal by RadenWA Portal by RadenWA
Another -long overdue- commission for :iconwingmccallister:, an illustration of a scene from his novel. Wing is opening a shiny gooey portal using his blood and flame power activated by the power from the book he received earlier in [link] . Complex scene.

Okay, now about his pose, it's actually quite normal until I drew in the book, which obscured all the most important hints of his pose. Anyways, on the left is one leg, which appears bigger due to perspective, on the middle is his gloved hand digging into the portal goo, and on the right is his other leg, which is already halfway inside the goo.

-
I know I have greatly offended a couple of people by taking an unforetold 1 year hiatus from doing his illustrations, but between college, the intensity of learning animations, swaying between different styles, music, social life and taking breaks, it was hard for me to stay committed to an illustration project as intense and complex as this. It was my weakness and it's probably still very long until I can call myself a professional.

Feel free to give critiques, since someone thinks I'm getting too much compliments. Afterall, I applied some techniques I learnt from doing my previous deviation, and since my previous deviation was shit, then this one probably is, too.

Anyways, sorry for that rant.

Well now what a piece if work I must say Ray, you're getting better all the time and first I must say....it's about time!

I see the talent and effort put into this, and i still rely on your style for my bro characters. And the way that I need to draw them, it's you who I use for this structure and idea!

And I also would like to say! This is so badass! Great timing too! I can't wait to see you're hard work again soon...maybe you might even choose me as your next (victim) artist for this! But anyways, great job!

Sincerely
J Ver (c) 11

Again this is a wonderful piece. Your talent is amazing and I always love seeing your work. I really love the colors used here and the mixture of fantasy outfits with more modern ones is a really nice touch. I also really love the facial expressions as you can really see the tension of the scene on everyones faces. My only really issue with this is that it seems a bit to cluttered for me. I think it would look perfect if it was bigger that way everything wasn't cramped in such a small amount of space. But other then that this is an amazing piece and I can't wait to see more from you.

At first, I actually couldn't understand the other leg behind because it faces almost backwards in comparison to the front, but I see it half way sinking in now lol.

I think there's actually an interesting style going here and love the glow on the ground. I can't say much more, but it looks pretty awesome and it'll be an amazing page to add on the side of the writing :D

I wondered about this too. Part of the issue I think is that the book blocks the view of the hip rotation. So you have what appears to be an awkward foot placement, without being able to see the hip, and the book is there to fiddle with perspective. The relative sizes may also be casting some optical illusion stuff in our brains.

A long time ago, I'd get the sketch versions and keep them. It was super easy to pick out his pose lines in the sketch and then figure out how they translated once the background and foreground elements were put into the colored piece. I still have them on my site in thumbnail form actually, and they were also put in the extended edition of the book. Either way, yay for art feedbacks. :)

This one was Raden Illustration Number 10.

Love the overall scene. Awesome work with the lights!
Totally love Rad being there all cute and lovely. ^^

If I had to say something about it maybe the face of the main character has something that's bugging me but I can't say what.

Anyway awesome piece man! ;)

Face is a subjective thing, faces that you feel attractive might be weird to others.
