My attempt at one.

I haven't fully rendered it yet, but I wanted to know especially if the embroidery pattern is ok like this. It's inspired by the Coór'hém picture, but not the same, and because Judith might want to use it I don't want to find out it's not ok after I worked several hours more on it :)

I'll render the hair and touch up the face (eyes, nose and mouth because I'm in the middle of repainting them) and lighting a bit.  Not a great piece but I'm really hampered by a lack of time. I'm going abroad for several months in not too long a time and I'm very much behind on work because of all those incessant computer troubles :(

Wow. Amazing.

The only thing I can see wrong is that his eyes seem to be different sizes/shapes.

Brilliant! I wonder if the embroidery was meant to be that dark, it's kind of hard to distinguish.

Almost...I'm making progress  rolleyes  (it's probably ridiculously simple but it doesn't seem to work for me..rather I'm still doing it wrong)

As for the embroidery, it's dark because I haven't rendered it yet heh. This is just the silhouette. I need an ok before I do that because it will cost me quite some time make it shineh!


@M'ruk  Thank you :) I'm repainting his main features so they're still a bit wonky, indeed ;)

Beautiful!

Dark, dangerous, sexy... and that's just the embroidery....

(wipes drool and looks guiltily around)    You have an ok - more than ok - fabuloso - because artists are the ones who define style, and boy, is that stylish!

Go render, shoo, shoo!  (and what, can I ask, are you using to render with? Curious about other artists' techniques....)

Glad to hear it! :D

I'll do my best to finish it today, yush. *rolls up sleeves*

As for rendering, do you mean the program? Or specific techniques or media or brushes etc. As program I use Painter XI for the bulk of my work, though that may change after I get back.  Feel free to ask specific things. If I can help I will.

Do we have an art-technique thread of sorts?

I'll create that thread..ehh, today or tomorrow. Just realised, I missed breakfast! ;)

Another great picture, Shayan - do you really have to make this voyage? That's annoying for us!

Thank you Talia :)  

When I get back I'll be sure to return here. I'm good at randomly popping up out of nowhere  rolleyes





I consider it finished, due to that my alloted time for it has passed. However, minor edits are still manageable.


I tried to capture the essence of the Diorye'oleal (Priest)  and in some respects I did better than others, but I consider it a very good learning experience.
I wanted to make him beautiful but not too much. Elegant but not frail with a somewhat undaunted (well they live in the Hovel Frond) but composed feel to it.


Hope you guys like it ^_^

Yep, I guess as well that the picture looks pretty good, he's got a really cool look there, and facial expression and clothes all go well together to form a Diorye'oleal :D Very nice interpretation, very fitting! And thus it seems after a while of absence we've got two pictures from you to go into the next update, eh? Wooo-hooo! clap  thumbup

Too bad you're going to disappear again already so soon after you've set anchor here for a while, however I hope that you'll eventually find back here, we surely appreciate the work of dedicated artists to bring our world to live! And at rate: Good luck on your months-long mission, Shayan!

Oh, and you get an aura +1 for finishing this one as well!  grin

BTW: To prepare pics for the update I always add a copyright note at the enlarged versions of the pictures, and for that I need the real life name of the artist - could you PM that to me, so that we have that covered?

Yes great job Shayan.  You certainly have a way with faces that makes it appear effortless.  We certainly enjoy having you around.  So I hope you enjoy it here too.   thumbup



Enjoy your trip.  Take your pencil and paper with you and dream up some more stuff while your gone.   grin

Thanks all :D  I'm very glad to have been able to contribute before I go (again)

@Seeker haha! what a lovely comment! But I ensure you it is anything but effortless...my foundations in art are not so good. I spend a lot of time correcting and I hope to build up my base skills from the ground up again on my trip so that I can work more efficiently and make stronger work. I will only bring a sketchbook and a pencil (about 3-5 months of backpacking) so that will be a challenge!

I very much enjoy Santharia. It is a special place to me and I love the spirit of co-creation that roams around these halls (and well, all you lovely people themselves :D) And thus, through the fire and the flame (and a lot of embarrassment) I did find my way back here every time. I'm 100% sure I will do so again ;)

@Talia  But...he doesn't sparkle in the sunlight!

@Art Thank you :) such comments always make it worth the time and effort ^^

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
