Art-trade collab: Minotaur marauder

By SteinWill
I thought it was about time I finished my  art-trade with :icondagootter: who wished me to lineart and colour his drawing fav.me/dbkiv7u
I know I should have added the skull pattern to his mask but I really don't feel like it with the hours I work these days so I hope you like it anyhow^^

Really good that you've finally gotten this done. I hope your friend thinks it was worth the wait because I certainly do! You've done a fantastic job with the colours and that yellow highlighting has worked really well. The cloth hanging off his leg is especially impressive as you've run all the highlights along the folds.

The fuzzy, black sheepskin came out very well with the brush you used to shade it. The hard lines between light and shadow work well for it, since when you have material like that, it's quite a different colour if it's rubbed one way or the other.

The metal plate looks cool too and I realised that you don't draw sheets of metal very often. It's a pity, since your technique for them is great. The different layers of colour built up create a convincing effect of roughly hammered steel. Something I've found useful for metal that you could try is for scratches in the metal, you can highlight the edge that's facing the light. It's pretty quick and adds a lot of depth.

But yeah, I'm glad to see you've gotten this out. It's a cool drawing and you've really done it justice I think. I'll go and have a look at your friend's gallery too, his idea of minotaurs is clearly a little different to mine, but it's cool in it's own way.

ah thanks! when I returned to the drawing now to look at it I must admit I'm actually very pleased with this and I did indeed put a hell alot of work into all this shading and lineart.  yea adding scratches to the metal is defently the next level I have to aim for since that is an excellent idea^^
so thanks mate =)
