Flirt Like a Caveman by zorm Flirt Like a Caveman by zorm
Some random crapstupidity drawn amid exam readings.

Lord Khran's suave idea of courting a girl is to invite her to test the firmness of his bicep. As if Hiid wasn't already jittery enough about his sheer size. Plus you'd need a map to get out if you accidentally became lost in those dreadlocks.
At least he's on his knees, but that is just to get a decent eye contact. When you're 8ft tall and trying to communicate with someone possessing the mighty stature of 5'5", that's somewhat obligatory.
He isn't supposed to be "pretty" in any conceivable manner. Any of such would negate his whole purpose. Even if the Rha-kan'Ockians (or zinigh'aldjaatd) are elves, there's a negative amount of bishib0i Legolases lurking about.

Still tired of inking.

I'm afraid that speech would have made me swoon with delight. ;) Hey, he manages to compliment her several times while he's complimenting himself, that's pretty nice.

Eewww, hairy arm. :XD:

The coloring is absolutely smooth and beautiful, and I like that she's not the stereotypical stick girl, although I think I'd have that look on my face just from having to wear that OUTFIT... :O_o:

I would have NOT have known that was what he was saying if you hadn't said so.

*purrs* What assets, indeed... Hiid's gaze is right where it should be... where my gaze definitely would be... And I'd probably be just as astounded as she is... *wink wink*
Tell me about low-riding loin-clothes...

So good that I didn't understand a single word he said. I'm admiring the girl's proportions. They are indeed lush and silky.

Hiid is just beautiful. You've come such a long way since your first concept of her. And the title, I must say, made me crack up as soon as I found it in my devwatch inbox. XD

Wonderful job on the hair, in particular. You make it look so natural. And I like Hiid's skin, especially with all the detail in highlights and shading. It's amazing. :)

Thanks. :)
Yeah, she has changed a lot, but there's also a spot in the story where time whizzes onwards four and a half years in the elvenland, and she has gained on weight due to the physical peasant labor and stout food. She is supposed to be rather skinny at the beginning of the book, but I haven't drawn those scenes in a long while now.

I like shading her skin as a contrast to the ugly, bulky sharpness of Khran. XD Doing a few pieces of her in a clothing akin to that has allowed me to learn softer shading transitions too.

Ahh, your girls are still so pretty and your Khran's musculature is still so hideous. :D And your colouring and jewelry design and all that remain awesome.

Like said above, he's supposed to be anything but what might be perceived as 'traditionally handsome'. Even originally Khran surfaced as a total parody character (partly to make fun of my own liking for big-muscled males), so I guess he can go always a bit overexaggerated. XD

I still can't get over how lovely Hiid is.

And I would seriously collapse in mirth if I got a come-on like that.

So awesome! I really love the way you draw women. They look like they have some meat on their bones! Gorgeous, detailed work as always ^^

Yeah, I prefer to draw women with fuller figures, partly to balance out my usually so throughly exaggerated hulk-men, partly due to the fact that I don't find sharp bones sticking out of a woman's body aesthetically pleasing. When one starts sketching more detailed kind of body structures, that is something you come across pretty soon in a skinny frame. I also like how some of the Renaissance artists portrayed females, and been reffing some style elements from my art books concerning that era. To start for instance from Botticelli's Venus... she was hardly a matchstick. XD

That's so true! There's nothing wrong with being skinny at all, but there's just too much emphasis on being skinny in these times that it just becomes unhealthy. The women portayed in the Renaissance period just looked more like how real women do, as does this piece. And coming from someone who is also no matchstick, I always appreciate seeing a female done with a fuller figure =)

Ditto. Some people are thin naturally, but it's a common average for woman's body shape to be slightly on the round side. I'm actually pretty skinny myself, but that's probably due to a quick metabolism. Only now that I've started exercising in a harder manner, I've gotten my kilos a bit past 50.

As I draw mostly women from my novel, it would be rather illogical to make them look like fishing rods on the brink of starvation. Hiid here has toiled in hard peasant work for years and enjoyed stout food alongside. There's a good amount of muscle amid the normal tissues, so that partially makes the limbs thicker.
Not that these characters are really even standard fantasy heroes. XD

You have improved a lot in females and the coloring is great.

Glad to hear that. Has taken ~2 years to get here with more serious type of practicing from the point when I first got pointed out I should work more on females.

Your females are looking great now. In the past they looked a bit masculine but now they really look as femenine as they should. :clap:

Yeah, the old ones were pretty bad. x) I had the proportions all wrong and the lines way too angular. The latter's still giving me trouble, though, because my drawing style emerges naturally as very gritty and jagged. But thank heavens for the smudge tool. :D

Maybe it causes you problems, but certainly it is not apparent in the final version of your art.
