Wushu Elf by Ekuneshiel Wushu Elf by Ekuneshiel
YES! I've got my painting mojo back, and I'm really happy about it. :D This started as me screwing around with a technique I like, applying some things I learned recently, and just generally experimenting... and it got away from me. So yeah, this is going in the ol' portfolio. Whee!

Oh, and there's a Deadstream on the way for this. :D Total time was about 5 hours, give or take. :)

[EDIT] Embiggened her left foot. Much better.

Why did I not see this before? Awesome! Especially as in one of my worlds- all the monks are elves... Humans are only just making it into the ranks, so- this is super cool!

Elves just lend themselves to being monks so well, don't they?

Yeah. Kinda asexual and all that. I sorta pick on Elves as a rule. Dwarves too. and them damnable gnomes. Not hobbits though. They make pie.

Too cool..! I've always loved drawing ripped leggings. :V SO MUCH FUN.
Always turns out to look awesome, no matter what.

Lovin' the pose, too! She looks like she's about to kick some major ass. B:
Happy belated new year!!!

Wow! I can tell you tried something different because this looks better than your usual style. I have to say I really like it.
That pose is awesome and as always I am highly impressed with the little details.
The only thing that bothers me is her left foot (the one on her pants). It looks shorter than it should be, but perhaps that is just the angle and perspective.
There are a few artists on DA that absolutely floor me when I see them post. I happy to say that you are one of them.
Keep up all the great work!

Thanks man! Yeah, just messing around and discovered something amazing! This is how I'm working from now on (or until I find something better).

Hmm... you're right about the foot. The warp tool will help me sort that out. ;)

Thanks again. Hopefully I can, you know, do this for a living... this year. I'm done procrastinating. ;P

Yeah man, this technique focuses MOSTLY on shading, then dropping color in on top of it. I like the results it produced. ;)

Oh man andy i think this has got to be the best you've done. The face looks great! It looks different than your normal faces you do and it was the first thing that struck me. The second is the hands. They are fantastic and proportionate and look like she's actually griping the poll instead of just existing in the same area.

Her pose is dynamic and fluid and i very much dig it.
Also i'm super jeleous of your painting style. Can i be your padawan learner? lol

Thanks Kay! Yeah, I've been working on faces. A lot. Thank God it's finally paying off! ;P That, and gripping hands, but you mentioned that too, so YAY!

Haha, I'll let you in on a few of my little tricks, but only if you're good. ;P
