F I R E  S T A R T E R  - Borderlands by Eddy-Shinjuku F I R E  S T A R T E R  - Borderlands by Eddy-Shinjuku
Photoshop CS6: Airbrushing & Illustration. Working hours: 12hrs +/-

Not going overboard with realism as I wanted to keep that cartoon-y charms of the game's cell-shade art style.
Here, I'm hoping to portray depth in Lilith - capturing that rare melancholic vibe from her. Weariness in eyes and the staring into space. A less gun-ho depiction but complex imagery of the character.


DO CHECK OUT MY MECHROMANCER ARTWORK AS WELL, TQ ^_^

The look in her eyes reminds me of BL2 and the moment with Roland. (Don't want to spoil anything for those whom haven't played the game).

I do have to ask, as a hobbyist myself, I can never seem to get a look on my characters like this. I have to use more dramatic facial looks such as frowning eyebrows, tears, frowning lips, etc. It all has to be overly dramatic.

I really want to be able to portray so much emotion into a simplistic and elegant way. (Not saying your art is simplistic. The details, dedication, and time put into your work is astonishing.)

Thank you so much for your time! And I applaud you for the honest dedication you have for art, regardless of expenses or time spent.

Just stunning! Excellent job!

Man, can I ask you something?! How do you do that crispy effect that look like we can even see the pores? It's a specific filter? Or a brush?

Btw, do you work as an illustrator?

Well, thanks for sharing your work :)

Awesome for such kind words! :iconurhappyplz:

I use this brush pack: [link]
The pores is brush 'debris 207' set at a low size, that alone wouldn't suffice; I used this technique as well: [link]

I'm just a hobbyist, but I learn a lot from tutorials and digital arts magazine. I don't really rely on trials and errors but instead learn how the professionals do their craft by learning from them to the nearest pixels, it's just a much faster learning curve this way - and expensive lol ;p

Thanks for answering my question (with so many details).

You really should invest in an illustration career (you're a very talented dude!). Your rendering is amazing!

Anyway, I'm downloading the brush and studying the technique. I'll try to use in my next illustration.

Thanks again!

Yup, I seen lots of illustration-styled art of her and I thought it would be great to depict the 'real' her like in the game, but with more details and still keep that BL animation style.

Wow I was shocked by your avatar as if Lilith herself approved :D

I figured something more serene is warranted in the midst of chaos in Pandora; hope you like this depth captured in her, I kinda 'caught' her looking like this is BL2 @ the base in Sanctuary. Perhaps it's just my imagination and hoping others find this glimpse of emotion as well, cheers! :w00t:

Damn that's cool! The only time you see her even close to this level of emotion was after Bloodwing... I still can't say it (lol). The shot is amazing and the light from her siren tats is done perfectly. bloody brilliant, mate

lol I think a deeper depiction is warranted, it just adds to the realism. Don't worry, Bloodwing was a damn good loyal bird, it's was sad that Handsome Jack made us kill him:ohnoes:

Having mixed feeling though, this piece is far more successful than my two Lara arts combined ^^;
The *fail?* got me to reassess things, especially 'art' and how it meant to inspire people instead of a platform to show off skills. I'm still the same artist but will prioritize more on viewers/audience from now on.
