Rip by thundercake Rip by thundercake
This work is bad for two reasons...one, it's a portrait after I promised I'd move on to more interesting things, and two, the sketch took less time than the paint, which is never a good sign.

Still, I'm kinda happy with it.

Sorry for the ugly watermark, this seems to be the kind of thing that gets stolen the most. :(

(It's Coe again! woo!)

I used to be interested in painting traditionally, so when I got my tablet four years ago I started relearning how to paint in Photoshop. It took a while for me to get used to the color palette (I'm oversensitive to violet), but the main thing I focus on these days is keeping my colors limited to two or three major ones, balancing warm and cool.

The watermark is easily forgivable with this. I wouldn't want something like this to get stolen either.

I may be on a draenei-binge, but I give it two thumbs up anyhow.

(I'm clean from WoW for 1 and 1/2 months, to note, but I can't supress the fanboyism for draenei.)

wow, your art is amazing! it has a very clean-cut style, so there's not a lot of room for vagueness... it really gets to the point and there's not a lot of distractions if you know what i mean ;)

Beautiful. :) I think the glow of her eyes reallu pulls the whole piece together. Reminds me of the night elves from World of Warcraft!

im curious, how would it be a bad sign if the sketching took less time than colouring? :)

for me it means it wasn't thought out well...I normally do a lot of thumbnails and several sketches before starting in on the actual painting, but with this one I only did one sketch and it was rushed -_-
