Allison: Lazuli the Half-Orc
I'm playing Dungeons and Dragons, 4th Ed. with some friends, and figured, I ought to do quick portraits of everyone so we have an idea what we look like. XD
I'm playing a half-orc ranger... but I didn't like how the internet portrays half-orcs so I kinda came up with my own design.
Part Shaak Ti from Starwars, part... lots of other random stuff. (Er, why yes, I am a nerd... how'd you guess? ^_^)
I didn't intend for this to be anything more than just a quick sketch, but I figured I might like to color it for kicks and giggles.
Things I didn't like:
The pencil lines weren't very carefully considered and I didn't ink her again before scanning.
Also, her neck really bugs me. It's just... anatomically not correct? Or maybe I'm being picky.
Her dress wasn't very well colored either. I tend to shut down when I start dealing with fabric, I don't know why.
Things I did like:
Yay for highlights on metal! That turned out better than I had expected.
Her expression came out pleasant rather than angry or creepy, which has been difficult when drawing this character...
Anyway, I know it has nothing to do with the theme but I figure, until we get some more theme stuff, I might as well post the other things I'm doing :)
