The previous version has a distracting background and was re-sized immensely to be internet friendly; this revision is purely for your Morrigan goodness in HD resolution, all the details can now be seen. Do enjoy
Photoshop CS6: Airbrushing & Painting; 12hours.
Mostly airbrushing is done here to achieve silky smooth and crisp illustration. Airbrushing is a technique that I practice a lot (digitally and automotive car painting) but never actually applied it in the past 20+ artworks, or a least dominantly - I want to resurrect this almost forgotten style of mine. Hope you guys like it, I may start producing more of this art-style if all is well.
It took me a while to figure out a pose that is compelling by it's own without a fancy background, the difficulty lies in depicting the personality through body language. A cunningly playful succubus is one hella task lol
On a related note (LC-wise), now that we got to know her very well for m the game, the ballpark has change for me in the depiction of her in this fan-service way. I'm not as good as you in that department, so I'm curious what my future LC work to be in this sensuous sense I've already done a bone collecting Lara, what now....
Did you finish TR already? You were very busy with artworks lately , but you should have more air for breathing by now. I'm always eager to see something from you, because there's always much to look at. Preferably LC of course, but not always, like with this, sexy succubus. She could seduce anyone! Be sure to feel my breath on your every art , and remember to not forget about Lara.
I finished it last month, though I felt very bad that I didn't do LC justice during the contest; I was obsessed with details that what mattered was composition and the storytelling of the art. I was being a fanboy and forgot the meaning of art completely when portaying my love for Lara in a personal self-serving way. The distraught from flopping the contest got me down and haven't replayed TR yet. I was supposed to do some epic like this: [link]
Anyways, the next possible LC art from me will be an abstract and art-sy one, I felt I owed something like that for myself, this means I'm counting on you for the sensuous an yummy LC stuff, I need to settle this personal score before I go back at 'regular service'
Being mentioned in the contest was just case of some luck. I didn't agree with all the official nominations. I've seen many better, to me, artworks. Shame you didn't make it, but that doesn't mean the pictures were failure. I know you posted this succubus for the second time, as I was having her already on my HDD, but frankly, I wasn't comparing the versions - just enjoyed what I saw.
I like girls with lip-gloss and natural color lips, yes it's imbalanced here. I this the eyes make-up is too strong. I'm a guy, I know knowing about makeup lol I just like the natural looking ones The eyes makeup color (pink) is strong because it makes it easier to see when viewed in small sized image. It's just a technique Thanks for bringing this up, I'll put more saturation in the lips
hehe great that you like my little succubus! Like always, you have such good eyes on details, it always worth it for me to spend that extra hours knowing someone will appreciate it Next time I'll hide something in the art, for certain you''ll be the only one to see it lol
I tried to break away from my usual style, but it seem what ever I do it always look alike lol Can't say the same for my next project as I'm pretty determine to be 'expressive' and free with the depiction - I'm going back to anime, it was ages ago I made something illustrative
