(Sorry for not reblogging your post, I wanted people to be able to easily arrow-key back and forth)
-Firstly, I cast a soft vignette on the lower part of the image to keep the eye up near the upper body.
-I cast a bit more light on to the planes of the face, but quickly realized some of your main problems were perspective and anatomy- you seem to want the head not facing us directly, but facing upward just a tiny bit to make her upper eye socket more imposing. However, you drew the lips, jaw, nose, and eyes as if they were normal front facing-
-So you have to indicate some skin under the chin connecting to the neck
-You have to flatten the lower lip, and broaden the upper lip
-You have to til the nose up more and move it up so less of the bridge is showing.
-You have to flatten the jaw line so the chin and corner of the jaw are not as “triangular”
-You have to flatten the bottom eyelid and make the top eyelid a little more circular.
For lighting, I also pulled out her bottom eyelids more specifically, as well as her upper lip and the bottom plane of her lower lip (between lip and chin).
-The rest of the fixes are anatomical, structural (costume), or lighting.
Your value groups and edges are pretty good- keep doing lighting studies. I am no master of breast anatomy, but I tried to correct some perpsective on them and make them feel a little more affected by the demon-kini.
Her body is twisting, so she’ll have a crease where her ribs and pelvis compress the skin\fat. I lit her face because otherwise, her boobs would become the focal point via lighting, and boobs are notoriously bad descriptors of character :)
-I also added a screen layer to her eyes and a little to her face to make them feel a bit more luminous!
In summation: REFERENCE REFERENCE REFERENCE. Make sure the costume has functional detail and is constructed believably: get hand reference. Get bat wing reference, and get face reference, if not for lighting than at least for line construction!
WHOOHOO!! I have been really eagerly awaiting this, augh you give awesome advice! It looks like you worked really hard on it, which I appreciate beyond belief. I’m excited to implement your suggestions! Thanks!!!
E-Absy WIP! So excite
