Help with DIFFICULT ANGLE :((((
«: March 10, 2009, 08:19:32 PM»
Yes, I need halp, badly.

These are lines for a port commission I'm working on currently, of Bodhi (the vampiress villain from Baldur's Gate II). I used posemaniacs.com and Matter's critique below to alter it a bit, and I think it looks BETTER, but not PERFECT by a long shot. Btw her hair is blowing in a stiff breeze, and I want her features to be more bony and angular.

Any help is greatly appreciated -- note that I am looking for redlines and criticisms about the strange angle at which this is supposed to be. Not all of the lines that are there now will be in the final port, many of them are simply guides when I go to shade it.


and as a portrait without any shading yet:

your major problem is that you drew the jaw from a below-angle, then basically drew the rest of the fact and skull in a straight on view. draw the entire face on a tilting plane instead of feature by feature

i don't have any energy to wall of text, so just go read bridgman

Not really seeing how I didn't draw the face on a tilted plane, but thank you for the redline.

Updated a bit. :) I think it looks much better now, thanks Matter!

Well:


If you did draw the face on a tilted plane, it wasn't the same one the jaw was on. Some of the features suggest a tilted angle, but their placement doesn't.

As for your new revision, you might want to bring the chin a little closer to center. It usually helps me to draw a small oval at the point. The neck should probably be a bit shorter as well.

Anywho, thanks again for the tip about the neck, Matter -- fixed, hopefully, and pixelated.
