Lilly Fanart

Post by GiftRaptor » Fri Feb 08, 2013 3:15 pm

I drew Lilly this time around since it was her Birthday yesterday. I took more time on this project than the last one. I personally thought it turned out well and I thought I'd share. :D

I'm open to opinions and criticism, so go for it.

Link for full view since the image is quite large.

dem eyes
When the war, has been won
And our march home begins
What awaits has not yet been revealed
What was won? what was lost?
Will our deeds be remembered?
Are they written on stone or in sand?

Curious, even when the style is clearly different from the one KS uses, it seems to fit Lilly so perfectly. Specially the eyes.

Great work, i think it's among the bests i've seen in here. There's something in the skirt that makes it feel a bit... Flat? And i think there's probably something off with the application of folds/form/value, but aside from that it's an excellent illustration.

Really nicely done.

I think I know what Dream means about the skirt being flat. I'm thinking adding a few curves to the bottom hem would take care of that. Kinda like:

I'm glad everyone is enjoying dem eyes. As for the skirt, I found it difficult to find a decent reference, because most of the time she is in her uniform or other images cut off at her waist, so I had wing it. My main focus was the background, since I don't tend to do well with those. Next time around, I'll put more effort into the clothing as well as everything else.

Well, anyway once again I appreciate the great feedback and nice comments.

My next project will be of Rin and Emi around the middle of next month for their celebrated Birthdays. You can look forward to that, or not, either way its going to be a thing. :wink:

The eyes actually seem slightly off to me. But maybe I'm just crazy (actually, I am, but my clinical diagnoses aren't the point here). Still good art.
