Portfolio: The Lion and the Bluebird by Ekuneshiel Portfolio: The Lion and the Bluebird by Ekuneshiel
Yes! Finally done! I've been working on this for a few weeks (although I stopped working on it for a week or so to work on another project), and I'm so so so glad to be done! This is definitely going to be the centerpiece for my portfolio. Whew.

Man that has got to be annoying. Just as he found her after months of searching, she decides to fight. He starts to read her her rights and then a beast breaks through the stone floor. Man he must hate Mondays.

This is super-cool, it should be in a RPG Manual or something!

Thanks! Well, this paladin dude and his rogue friend are fighting some sort of tentacle monster. That's about it, haha. ;P

The one thing that's bugged me was the fact that the warrior in the top left seemed to be awfully stiff and stoic with the writhing tentacle mass surging up from the depths. At least the elf chick looks like she's about to zap it with magic.

He's a Paladin, man. Stoic is what they do best!

Wow! This is incredible! Watching you progress through this in stages was great to watch. I am happy to say that this is one of the best things I've seen out of you. I know you were having problems with the background but it came out well and I see you darkened a few lines on the lion's arm so that he and the background colors don't meld too much. All in all I love how this came out and your knack for detail still (and probably always will) amazes me.

Thanks man. I really love letting people see the steps. It's fun to see other peoples' work progress and see how they work, huh? :D

Yeah, I actually lightened the background at the top a little bit too, to make it seem more like the sun was shining in. Thanks for lookin' buddy!

This is definitely great, and the effort you've put in certainly shows, however I can't shake the feeling that there's something off with the guy's pose. I think his head is just turned a little too far; he seems to be looking to the left of the scroll rather than at it.

Just thought I'd chime in with a little CC; since this is going to be the centrepiece, it would be a disservice to you if I didn't point out what little could use improving.

I really do think this is fantastic work, though :thumbsup:
I'm sure you've mentioned elsewhere, but I'm lazy- what kind of think are you hoping to illustrate?

I noticed something there too. And I think you're right, look's like the head's turned past the arm a bit

Clearly shows that you took your time with this. The level of detail is simply astonishing.
I think it's safe to say this is my new favorite of your works :)
Great job with this man :D
