Hello today deviants!

Todays' episode I'll be showing one of my recent hard digital works this year.
The last time I'd colored back one full colored character was back in 2014
and with great dedication I'll have to see some new improvements I could make in the future.
======================================
This is a fanart in homage to Janna Windforce, The Storm's Fury of League of Legends, making
a tranquil rest and contemplation somewhere in the hidden place of Runeterra.

I could have done this way back after college and at year 2014 but during that time I really am aware of my own skills that
I'd bother not doing so and for a long hiatus of planning I finally tried it out.
it took me a strong whole week of doing it and it was painful too :happybounce:

Posted here sharp in 07/01/2017. 
See you next work guys~ I have an important client work to do this month!
P.S.~also posted in on Tumblr though... ^_^
sphelon8565.tumblr.com/post/16…
:poro: :poro: :poro: :poro: 
=============
TRIVIA: also check this out: this is where I 've made a character sheet while making this fanart of mine
fav.me/dbfhctu
Also it's my 1st attempt on semi-realism + anime art composites at this point my creative career.
========================================================
Oh yeah I hate pointing this out....I actually applied some little 10 to 20% Birds eye-view on this piece in which it may affect some proportions I made around in little details in her body all around.
Well it's just my own approach and something I'd like to convey in this piece. that is all. :juggle:

This is a nice work and figure works well with the background. I like your attention for details and it's really great you try various things in your pieces.
As for transition to semi- realism/ realism - first thing is proportions, and the next one i would say lineart (or perhaps it's lack). You can try to merge lines with your drawing more by lowering their opacity, colouring them, or painting at least some things on higher placed layer. If you like certain artists style, check whether they released some tutorials or timelapses, so you could learn their process and workflow. Also copying other's work may be very helpful with understanding what makes the style, but you should ask for permission first or make it just  for your own use (no publishing etc)

Thanks for commenting by and giving me some insights :happybounce:

Ah yes, I know there are many styles to try and adapt to and be admired or inspired by it.
As much as more styles are concern, I pretty sure they are pass through artist to artist *heck even to 
the point of even not worth mentioning the influence *til he/she writes her journal after a set of works.

In my case, I have a lot of inspirations from other
artists and with that many references, I'd probably end up developing my own kind of style and
my own unique execution :juggle: and so, my style can end up being too composited in some ways or another
only difference all in all is how the artist executes his/her character appearance aside from the general style
and some conveying perfections aside.

In due time, I hope I could add another piece as beautiful as this one :determined: or even better.   tard is happy

This is a really nice piece! The colours are well chosen, and I like how everything in the composition fits really well together. It has a calming vibe to it that is really pleasant to look at. Not to mention the fact that the foreground elements - the character, her staff(?) and the bird - are also quite well drawn. They're realistic, interesting to look at and they fit into the background well. All around a really strong piece! Great work!

first off, I want to say great work :clap: The scenery is beautiful and the details really jump out at you and catch your eye. Which is great if you want to get lots of views. I can't find much to criticize in this picture. I congratulate you for your hard work and effort (I refer to you saying it took me a strong whole week of doing it and it was painful too :happybounce:) Keep up with that.
And if I were to say anything that could be improved, it would be maybe to move her eyes a bit further down her forehead. And I dunno really, she looks a slight bit on the chubby side. I know how you can correct this.
 as you move down the arm, the thickness of the arm decreases until you get to the bend in the elbow. Then it increases slightly and decreases again as you get closer to the hand. You can observe this in photos. What you have done is made it like a cylinder, it stays the same width/ thickness all the way to her gloves. It should not be like that, it should slowly decrease. I recommend looking at photos of female arms:

But other than that great job! I think you did a great job of shading and lighting :) :clap:
I will rate your artwork now

weldone! You have done a great artwork, with skill and perseverance. Keep it up! And that is exactly what I want to see in someone I watch. (hint: I am going to watch you)
Have a great day! And I hope to hear from you again soon!

Thank you very much for giving me a new critique in this work of mine! I actually don't mind finding new insights all in all but as long as it'll help me for the sake of making new works around and I'd like to welcome you in writing down your opinion here
:happybounce: **actually you're not the 1st one critiquing this one
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

:hmm: First of all, I welcome you to browse around the comment section where other people did a critique of my work at that time (*actually they're like two of them here before your comment) so I'll never gonna repeat those topics discuss in this piece but the matter the fact I sure am intrigued to draw something better in the future...Now back to the piece here in discussion.

:juggle: As much as you comment about her eyes though I believe that's your own approach for complementing her face.
    So I don't know (**Please note this is my first time attempting a semi-realism anime style and is a FANART of the said character above and we all have their own way of portraying both OC and fanart characters the way they like on how they look, base on their looks if it's a fanart character or an existing franchise character) but I'm not gonna bother too much on it, because I pretty much set a style and a unique reference that I am trying to aim to convey especially  at that time and on my own characters both fanart and original but that doesn't mean I'm dismissing your compliment on that part, that's your perfection approach :pat: Now if I were to recall, I did some sketches and drafts on this fanart and found multiple possibilities on how she'll looks especially her face. Perhaps  maybe I found one that suits her the way I like and decided to drew her face under that way for now judging from the way I painted her at that time and then there's a mini perfection that some other people I believe, like you, to do you'd wish for the artist to improve on plus my recollection on the painful experience of perfecting one part of the other but if I where to improve it in another time some time, that'll be me ;) |.....different artstyle and approach clashes from other's taste.

However as much as I'd like to discuss more on, the arm reference all in all you showed me there should be useful in multiple ways, now that's I have no problem commenting about. La la la la Hug  Then there's this perfection taste :P about how you wanna portray and emphasize on your own imagination base on what franchise characters are portray from. I actually did a planning on how I want the way she'd look like under my taste (and looking at the artpiece, I try to make her more under a slender type body and a pretty semi-average body curves) at that time and if I were to contemplate about her arm now in general, I think I'd recall redrawing them and I had like multiple versions of that part that I 'd kept for myself and like many artists do, some tend to focus too much on perfecting certain parts thus losing other focus on perfecting the other. That's one experience I can tell you about and since it's a fanart sometimes basic anatomy can clash a lot especially with fancy gloves like that and her tattoo.

Now this is something I'd like to check out next time in one of my new works to make. Thanks for pointing that out though, now I have a new challenge under my thoughts hope to keep up soon and find my own phase how to improve something.

Also lastly I actually didn't state this on my description but I manage to discuss it in one of my previous responses to the comments written by others here if you take a look around on the comment section, but after writing this one I think I better state this in the description above but I kinda felt it unnecessary even if I did ^^;. I actually applied a 10  to 20% worms eye view during the planning of this work in prior to the eye compliment you wrote here.

Anyways If I miss something, feel free to discuss it here :happybounce:  I'll be more open for discussions should you have anything else to wrote.

and once more Thank you very much for stopping by  and making a compliment of my artpiece. Glad you love it ;) and hope you'll have a great day too!

Oh yeah, I almost missed something I'd like to point out about her arm.. since I can't reedit when I wrote something passes on.....

I was actually reading some How to Draw Manga books especially own by Hikaru Hiyashi and I did used it as a guide in all of my works **actually my guides are now composite..since I did mentioned the 20% worms eyeview well those curves are affected. and also like I said, I may have applied some small unnotice curves around her arm. Since I've applied some anime anatomy  on it well it may have been my approach either way besides every people on earth have their own distinguish body structure but I hope this could still help according to what you wrote ^^;
