D: I can't color for beans or peanuts.
Nice. Neither can I.
Moving on now: here's a WIP of the Angel Hunters antagonist, Siren:
Anyone who read the latest story update will know who she is. Anyone who didn't could probably tell just from the picture. She's the girl whose sadism even disturbs me a little bit--but I think that's one of many keys to a good villain.
EDIT: Forgot this bit. Is there a better way to get across that her feathers are really sharp/bladed besides making them all shiny and stuff? Also, any other flaws you see in the concept (general anatomy, etc.), please point them out. It'll really help with the final.
Your coloring is really good! :p
I likes it alot.
If the wings were another colour you could make them dripping blood all along the edges where they would have cut some one (not like a blood spatter thatd make it look like they got in the way instead of being used to cut some one).
To get the wings to look bladed keep using the metallic shading you were talking about but also experiment with some different bladed shapes. Wings are tedious as hell to draw, but as long as you're up for it just making the edges of the feathers a sharp set of angles instead of round shouldn't complicate things too much. It might also be fun to experiment with a mechanical wing in this situation ;D
I made you an example.
@Psy - Yeah, that'd look pretty cool. I'll do it.
@Kasey - Thanks for the example. Blade-shaped feathers strangely hadn't ever occurred to me.
Here's Fabiafidus's request, finished. I got done inking Kagami and realized that she looks nothing like how I drew her, though.
Hey, you've gotten better since the last time we talked, keep up the good work brometheus. I dig the way you did the blood, nice layering.
I can do it better, though. That was just a ten-minute deal. I'll go all-out next time I try it.
Illyana, from Angel Hunters.
Yeah, that angel concept seems like it should turn out really well. I like where it's headed. As for the wings, I'd just have to go with Kasey. Also, adding shards of glass and hitting the coloring up a tiiiny bit with the Sharpen tool should help out a bit (I usually don't endorse Sharpen outside of glass, haha).
And that five-head Illy chibi is ridiculously adorable, by the way.
Oh, and I found this on Tumblr and I thought you'd like it. :)
That was awesome. I saved it to my desktop and named it "Get Inspired by This.gif".
