Judgement by Shinerai Judgement by Shinerai

Description

Title from another letsplay I'm watching at the moment - it's quite late, so I'm not creative enough to think of my own. Here's an art trade I spent a little more time on than expected (though not enough time on to surprise anyone). I regret that I am so late with this trade but I'm glad to have the opportunity to draw this character, Alka, of Mineriva. I did my best to think of something interesting which suits the character's personality. I hope you like it! c: As usual, it's a little larger under the download.

When I look at this, I think of the name "Forest Leaper".

Great use of affinity to tie this piece together. Keeping the fire from being overly bright really helps the character stand out, instead of relying on flashy glow or over-saturation to pull the eye. Also there is a strong sense of motion which seems natural to the character himself.

I like this piece - love the trees especially -  but the shape of the neck frill doesn't read to me at all, it's very visually confusing to me, I don't know why.

Thank you for the compliments! The neck frill was the most difficult part ;u; definitely some room for improvement here.

Wow this almost looks like my dragonborn character I play in D&D!! I like how the frills look like an extension of the neck, I'll go over to Mineriva's account and compliment the design.XD As always, your renders are just gorgeous!!!

Thank you for the compliments! It's funny when you have coincidental similarities like that xD Do you have a picture of the character you play in D&D?

Oh jeez WOW. This is cool. Beyond cool. I love the atmosphere; those basically bare pine trees, kinda hazy/smoky air, and the sparks of fire below give the scene such a foreboding, creepy feel. Also, that character is something else; such a rad design (kudos to the creator!). Those horns!! :love: Also, love the leaping pose; so dynamic and energetic; I love especially how you did the bent / bunched up leg. Whenever I try to do stuff like that it ends up looking wrong and stupid; it looks so good here. Must practice more. :XD:

Wow, she really looks like she's pouncing through the trees, a sudden burst of energy in a still forest. The detail, shading, and anatomy is wonderful!

Oh my god - this turned out so awesome. The pose is just fantastic - it's so dynamic and it matches her character so well. It seems she's stealthy hunting her next victim from behind. That face expression is so great like she's watching every single movement of her prey and never losing the sight to it. Just to strike in the right moment. Yeah that's what she likes to do.
The horns have such a nice smooth shading - I hope you didn't have that much trouble with them. I really like how they came out and I'm constantly scrolling up to look at her. The background with that almost bare conifers gives the whole piece something mysterious and dangerous. And I see she inflamed the ground beneath herself already - there's a fire sparking. And she's ready to fire her magic once again. The title does do justice to this scene.

The markings on her body are perfect - another tricky part that you did so well. And not to forget the little details - her rings and gems at her horns.
I love it. I love everything in this piece. She turned out so amazing and powerful and yet she looks beautiful although she is not friendly in any way.
I guess I could drop more lines about how much I love it but I think would lose myself in all these words. Thank you so much for trading with me and painting such a great artwork :aww:.

Hello! And I'm sorry for the late reply here ;u; Been a bit busier than expected! I'm so glad you like how the piece came out! You did such a wonderful job on Ardrius and I really wanted to repay you by giving my all on your character. I waited for a bit because I just could not think of a suitable pose/theme, but I'm glad I landed on one you like. And you interpreted the scene exactly like I was imagining! I imagine she has this really eerie hover as she follows her prey (like that scene called Worthless at the end of Brave Little Toaster where the magnet is chasing everyone. That scene scared the crap out of me as a child).

Anyway! I'll reply back to the note again soon c: I'll make sure to send you a bigger version too. Thank you for trading with me too ♥

So I'm late too. Life is really demanding for me as well. Not physical but I have so much things in my mind which wanted to be coordinated - both in work and personal. I guess I have to stick it out for a while.
The pose is really perfect for her – and then I think why I didn’t get the idea of such a cool pose Wink/Razz .
Well I have to say I’ve never seen the little brave toaster but it looks so cute :aww:. But it reminds me on those old films I watched as a child and I still love to watch them from time to time.

You will get a bigger one from me as well. At least you should enjoy all the details in a better quality Nod ;) (Wink)

Beautiful work as always Shin! Love the anatomy on this as well as the feel and the pose! 
(I am also learning about contrast recently, so the contrast between character and background is awesome!)
I love the background! Super simple, yet detailed! Keep up the fantastic work!!

So far just making my characters stand out more by making the background a more desaturated colour. Im also learning about leading lines and upgrading my understanding of shading c: (An artist at  comic expo talked to me for over an hour about this stuff, and told me about an app called handy to help with hands and feet)
