Remy belongs to Gretchen Bergaus :iconsuirenshinju: This is my entry for her Undertaking Life Contest, which you can read more about here fav.me/d6224v5
I'm pretty happy with this one, specifically the lighting, pose and the gun, though you can't see the gun very well with the blood splattered all over it :XD:

Very nice indeed, I agree totally with the last comment, you are certainly well on your way with this piece my friend. :)

Well, you came to DevArt to learn, you're certainly doing that.  Between your earlier works and this - the accuracy in form, the color and background, I'd say you're coming along quite nicely.  Nicely done.

Thank you so much, that really means a lot :hug: Especially as anatomy and colour are still things I struggle with ^^;

She looks great, good luck with the contest! I really like the fact that she got dirty, how you use textures and the lighting :aww:

Thank you :D I got third place! :happybounce: I think it would be quite hard to stay clean in a zombie apocalypse, a germaphobe/perfectionist like me would be screwed :XD: Thanks again :huggle:

This is awesome, you're just getting better and better!( And I just keep saying the same things on your every art piece... I feel so unoriginal in my commenting. :XD: )

No but seriously I love it this might be one of my fav things in your gallery right now. :dummy:

Official Judge Critique ----------> I have to disagree with Su and whenpigstfly because I have messed around with textures and brushes and I have many times used references photos and many other great artists here on da use all of these tools too in there drawings and that doesn't make them any less creative or original.

However what sold me was the lighting, you have great movement going from the dark to light from left to right, and I also love how Remy is not directly in the middle, great job, it makes the drawing more interesting.

Congrats on 3rd and don't forget your prize!!

Thank you! I understand what they were saying, unfortunately I didn't get to finish the background which is why all the textures were used ^^; I'd never used them before though so it was really fun :D (I'm also relieved that other people use stuff like that because sometimes it makes me feel like I suck when I can't draw without reference :XD:)

 

That is a huge compliment for me as I'm terrible with lighting, I'm really glad you like it :D

 

Thanks again :)

I do agree with Su about the heavy stock use, but I also agree with her that you used it very well. I can tell you put a lot of time and effort into the shading and texturing -- and I know leather is very tricky to shade. Congratulations for placing third!

Note me for the prize! (Portrait sketch)

Thank you! I ran out of time and didn't get to finish the background which is why I used all the textures :XD: And I swear, leather is the work of the devil >.< Thanks again :D

A great depiction of Remy! Unfortunately, the fact that many stocks were used in its creation detracts from the creativity and originality. Kudos to using everything in harmony, I do feel that was done well. You're the 3rd Place winner. Please note me, :iconwhenpigsfly8992: and :iconcelesoran:, to claim you prizes. Thank you very much for participating in the contest and supporting Undertaking Life! I'm very grateful!

I'm so glad you're happy with the way I portrayed her, I was really nervous about that :XD: Unfortunately I ran out of time and couldn't finish the background, the textures were a last resort, so I definitely understand what you're saying :)

Thank you so much! :happybounce: And you're welcome, I can't wait to read more of your story :)

:squee: I'm really glad you like the colour and shading, and especially the leather shine, as it took me forever and I thought it looked rubbish :XD: Thank you Haley :huggle:
