Think she turned out very nicely... nice to see some solid shading of the form going on (Angel of Jan felt more cell shaded?) and I love the fact you pushed the darkness and the saturation of the colours in the window behind her, really makes it quite an eye catcher. Only thing I'd say could use a little more polish are the wings - they do feel quite plain up to the rest of the detail in the image, and I'm not sure what they're made of beyond the purpley feathers along the tops. Love the subtle touch of blue along the bottom - adds something to that part of the image!

If I were to offer any advice, I'd say research a little into ambient occlusion - I think a little of that in this image would have really made the figure pop right out. But another great step on the digital ladder you're currently on!

Dammit, I have to google 'ambient occlusion'...

heheh it's mostly a 3d related term, but I think it'd apply here too. :)

I Googled and it didn't much help; no one could "tell" what it was, but there were images so I can visually recognize it, but I'm still not quite sure what it means! :stinkeye:

from what i know (and I'm sure if any modeller ever reads this they can correct me if need be) it's basically the shadow pass on model that puts in those deepest shadows where even ambient light can't get to, regardless of how a model would be lit - often the areas on an image that are almost black. In this particular image areas like the creases in the blindfold, where light couldn't get in, could do with being a little darker, because of that.

Oh yes I was debating whether the shadows would have a different tint because of the two different colored light sources, but of course this is the time I couldn't find the reference book I *bought* for this purpose. ;_;

And by now I really just wanna be done with this. Stared at it too long and time to move on to other things! I sense this will be getting a once over in the future once I have more time to tweak.

I agree those wings are bothering me! I'm thinking perhaps adding more feather layers somehow? I left them so simple in the line art with the intent to make them a solid piece of patterned stained glass, but then they went more realistic than planned, which led to that imbalance.

Bwah wish I had a bit more time to work on this, but must move on to other things or I won't get all of my pieces done. ;_; That is the shame about a deadline sometimes.

I did learn a thing or two about using Adjustment layers on this one that I'm hoping to go back and apply to Angel of January before I send her off for print. Woo learning!

Looks awesome, and best of luck at DragonCon! I passed jury just fine and got approved for the art show, but I guess I didn't rank high enough to get one of the tables that seem to be in higher and higher demand each year... so it's a no-go for me, looks like. I ought to at least be daytripping though, and I'll do my best to find you and say hi!

I didn't get a table either, sad to say! BUT I did get a gallery panel and print shop space, so I'm putting my all into a big display this year. It's actually kind of freeing so that I can go and enjoy the rest of the con and maybe even socialize with other artists there! :jawdrop:

It'd be cool to chat in person again.:D

Ah, I thought you were springing for an exhibitor/dealer table this year! Maybe I'm making that up? Though I suppose it's a small comfort to know I'm not the only one... there must be some *amazing* folks this year if neither of us got tables, and neither of us are shabby at all, especially you, what with being able to say "hey look, I even have a book out." Ah well, will keep trying as many years as it takes!

I ought to be daytripping either Saturday or Sunday; it'd be lovely to meet and chat!

Nope, I was and did! I applied for both a dealer and exhibitor table, but got put on the waiting list. Boo! I just have to remember to apply a bit earlier next year. Seems like the early bird gets the worm for sure! Hotels even booked up way earlier than I'm used to.

Crazy times, but just gotta keep trying!

And cool! I shall look for you. Maybe swap info via notes? :D (If in doubt and cell phone service fails us, I'll most likely be haunting all of the art tracks and hosting one on e-marketing too!)
