Dungeons and Dragons: Farah (OC Commission) by Eddy-Shinjuku Dungeons and Dragons: Farah (OC Commission) by Eddy-Shinjuku
OC Commission done for ~Zoberraz  

Photoshop CS6: Painting, Illustration, Airbrushing and Post-processing. Working hours: 18++

This is Farah,  half-elven female bard based on Dungeons and Dragons.

=BACKGROUND=
Farah is the daughter of two adventurers, her father a human warrior and her mother an elven archer/mage. Both parents eventually retired from adventuring when they earned titled of nobility and territory to look after. They married, and eventually had five children.

Farah was the third born, and she was quite an handful as a child due to loving to make pranks and being playfully misbehaved. A bit of a tomboy, Farah also tried hard to follow her older brother (whom liked forestry/hunting) everywhere he went. She was adorable, but also a lot of trouble.

Farah then gained two younger twin brothers, and since both her older sister and brother had left home to study/train elsewhere, she was now the 'older' sister. That was a turning point in her life where Farah became a lot more responsible and dependable.

Since Farah wasn't the oldest, she was never expected to be married off to another noble family, or to succeed her parents. Thanks to that, she enjoyed a lot more freedom about what she wanted to do in the future. She inherited her mother's talent for magic, and was a quick study when her father was teaching her older brother swordplay. Combined with a talent for singing, song-composing and a love of history - she eventually became a bard and left home to become an adventurer like her parents were before.

=ATTITUDE=
Being a nobleman's daughter, Farah grew into a well-mannered adult generally at ease in her own skin, with a genuine love for her people, which contributed to making her charming and outspokenly charismatic.

She's not quite the frivolous noble-lady, though, mostly thanks to her parents more humble origins and the sense of responsibility she developed raising her younger brothers. Her cheerfulness as a child grew into a more mature positivism.

Being positive lends her probably one of her best qualities as an adventurer: she's very courageous. She's not fearless: Farah does get scared, but rather than panicking or feeling sorry for herself, she tends to tenaciously look for solutions even if in grim circumstances.

Could you do Farah from Prince of Persia? I saw the name of this one and saw these two fighting beside each other against sand zombies in a D&D-ish environment, and my mental picture looks awesome to me.

Btw hows your coloring work that you wanted to do on Sona?
FYI I started this artwork in greyscale, as so: sta.sh/0dgs47j4a47
It's very likely you can color it like I did :D

This reply correspond to your Note regarding coloring as I can't seem to locate it under all these other notes lol
Are you familiar with the layer mode 'Color'? lol very obvious mode name.
Basically just merged all of the layers and start anew with these Color layers, at this point completely forget about layer Masks and just paint in colors intuitively.
It's best you start with a theme, use Paint Bucket and drop in cool or warm tone into a low opacity Color layer.
RULE with color layer is that don't use 100% opacity, each of the layers should be max'ed 50% to avoid oversaturation. You can configure saturation level later. I max my colors for each Color layer no more than 30% :nod:
Once you've dialed in on all the colors, the last step is direct paintover if necessary. 
And please, this is the stage where you go all Picaso and work intuitively, so leave behind the calculative masking stuff ^^;

You're welcome.
Well it's coming along slowly.  I'm trying to get a Halloween drawing done too so I keep putting the Sona drawing aside.  That's really neat to see.....hopefully one day I can get on your level...

I have some experience with the Color mode, mostly for using it to make base colors black and white to help with shading.  I did some experimenting with it now using what you said...minus the merging all the layers part.  I still wanted to keep them all just in case things got really bad.  I chose a warm tone (orange-ish color) on a 8% opacity color layer for the theme and have been  fooling around with adding colors putting the opacity of the layers around 25%.  What I've done so far (skin, hair, some parts of the clothing) seems very desaturated to me, especially the skin.  Probably cause its only one layer each and I have no idea what I'm really doing.

Yup, Color mode is great the foundation, you should use Soft Light and the Overlay mode to spruce it up too :D
Trust me, I didn't use that much of skills to really dial in the colors, it's just understanding the behavior of those said Modes. 

But one thing I gotta stress out is, for B&W to color feels very weird, I mean, you are used to the grayscale then suddenly putting colors the artwork transforms it into something else. This stage you gotta trust whatever color tutorials you've learned and seen. It's a weird stage that even for me who've done it couple of times have self-doubt in this process. This is where the tonal theme is important, it generates a specific set of hues and prevents the 'rainbow' effect.

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you.  I wanted to try out using the other layer modes to see how they looked before making a comment.  Soft light and Overlay did help quite a bit on the areas I tried them on.  I didn't I was supposed to or not, but I dropped the opacity of those layers to below 40% in conjunction with trying not to oversaturate.

 

It is definitely something else to see it slowly go from B&W to color.  I haven't actually looked at any color tutorials so I'm still all very new to the whole "color theme" thing....

You doing Game-art-HQ FF art btws? I'm working on Tifa FF7, you should see it around end of month :D 
Yes, I'm really deprived of my usual fanarts; working on back-to-back commissions ^^;

:iconmortalshinobi:
mortalshinobi Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2013
same. i have back to backs, and most are hentai so i can't exactly stick them up on da.
i'm actually not working on the ff tribute arts as i've never actually been much into ff.  i'm kinda waiting for him to finish ff and zelda to see what else he pops up that i may be interested in.
and yeah, those details you have are nice. i had a way of adding textures on photoshop unfortunately the type of texture i used is missing on manga studio so now i need to figure a new way for textures cuz my last experiment wasn't the best in results.

Lol ecchis and the like do generate heaps of $$$, to think that folks will pay top dollar for these "artworks" ;p
I don't mind the FFs and the Zeldas, but the multiple rounds means there is no room for other stuff; a Capcom tribute would be awesome for instance. 
In fact, instead of grouping characters within the confine of their publishers, titles or console, a themed project with any characters definitely celebrates the gaming spirit. Example, maybe all red themed characters for a random thought :D
But of course GAHQ is a young establishment, so need to do the standard stuff to build a foundation before getting all fancy :nod:

they've technically had a street fighter tribute. but not quite the same as a capcom tribute. as if there was i'd probably do lupo or jill from resident evil.  though i did do the mortal kombat vs street fighter image for the street fighter one.
and yeah, porns get more money then regular arts. so far this month i've only had two "regular" commissions vs like 12 of the hentai variety.  people prefer naked women in the act then other stuff which they can find more easily for free it seems.

It's not about the nudity or the act, but the subject matter and multiply that with people's fantasy - it's a potent concoction. :thumbsup:
Unfortunately for me I'm taking the serious route in art nowadays and can't afford to provide smutworks, unless it has true artistic merits.  Even if I do, some of the time I don't share the same sentiment with the clients, hence not 100% driven, that is improper business conduct and the hefty amount of money that I deal with warrants certain professionalism, so I only do stuff that resonates with me and the artstyle. People do have crazy fantasies in dA lol
I wish I am more imaginative like you lol ;p

heh, the clients i got i think are initially from hentai-foundry, which is hard to get with their level of criticsm for art. but yeah, it's best to enjoy your work to a degree so you give your personal best, otherwise it comes out lackluster. had a few that have come out that way and you personally feel bad about it even if the client themselves likes the piece.

I've re-uploaded a wider image, here you can see more of the environment and a better interpretation of the story :w00t:
If you meant Bilbo's sword a.k.a Sting, this is actually inspired by Thorin's,  can't recall waht it's called but it's very cool looking :D

Neat! :D

Hold on a sec...
(On wiki search later)
Thorin's sword is called 'Orcist' and also 'the Biter' by the goblins. It's supposed to glow blue when orcs are near like Bilbo's. :)
Yeah it does look cool! :D

Having said, in this depiction the blade doesn't have the bruteness that it supposed to portray, it's delicate in an Arwen sort of way lol
