Re: Elemental Guardians

Bill: Ah, I see. Hm, definitely going to try that out to see what it looks like for it sure does sound interesting. Thanks!

Al: Thank you. Yes, the way the wings are attached to her body doesn't quite work. It's one of the points on my long list of 'what I should have done better'. The tilt of her torso doesn't quite work out either. We'll see, depending on how the other three turn out I might simply sit down and redo this one, given time allows it.
The air elemental will definitely by my next project, once I have the current drawing off of my board. Still tweaking on the sketch but all in all fairly happy with it.

Re: Elemental Guardians

A little update on the series. Kind of a sneak peek, as I intend to do this particular element last. But I mentioned Rubin at the beginning of the thread and so I thought it's only fair to introduce her to those that don't know her yet.

So here's a crappy digicam-shot of the initial sketch for the fire element.



CC ever welcome!

Re: Elemental Guardians

I like this one as well, very well done indeed. Might think about some small flames coming off her wings... would be cool. Just a thought.

Peace,
AL

Re: Elemental Guardians

She's got a flame in her hand. Much of the only lightly sketched detail was lost with the crappy photo that my camera took. Basically what she's stepping out of is a lava flow. She's got the lava dripping off of both her primaries and her sword.

Re: Elemental Guardians

So I got to actually finish the second one of the elemental angels. This is the colored version of Topas, the angel of air. I tried out the suggestion that Bill made towards the legs but didn't like the result. It broke the flow of the image too much, so I stuck with the original idea.

Re: Elemental Guardians

Another beauty! I love the sleeves and the motion of her skirt and sash...really works with her element. And as always, wonderful wings!

Re: Elemental Guardians

Swaggertoes: Yes, I definitely have thing for wings as well. Dunno, probably some kind of a fetish. Whenever I start drawing something, no matter what, it's very likely I'll end up sticking feathers on it XD

And yes, I have noticed the increase of stalkers. Damn I knew that name sounded familiar

BD: Thanks a bunch. I'm particularily fond of the outcome of both her feathers and sleeves so I'm all the more happy that you like them

Right now though I'm pretty much in a tricky situation artwise since the friend I'm staying with (using the help of another!!!) talked me into starting a *really* huge project that will definitely keep me occupied for weeks, if not months to come (though she promised to restock my pencils as I'm going to be going through them like mad with this and it's all her fault, really!!!). I'll have a camera shot ready for you all once I'm back in Germany.

Re: Elemental Guardians

Great finish on this one. Very good use of color and movement. I can't wait to see the next in line.

Peace,
AL
