Litchee the Dark Elf

I made several studies on this artwork : - playing around to come back to life my old OC named "Litchee" ( main character from one of my first comic project , as a teenager )
- testing a new way to conceive my shading ; from the light bouncing off the orange tissue background environment

  • creasing the blacks values on the picture and keep a high-contrast
  • studying also this grayish skin mid tone I wanted to get for my vision of the dark elf ( drows ) I kept 'unfinished' parts because I'm not really satisfied with the result, and prefer to move-on to another study for now. software : Krita on Linux Mint KDE

@Paul Andruchiewicz : Merci Paul ! Yes, there is no mistery , secret software or tablet might don't do everything ( even if a good soft, and a good tablet helps a lot ) Most of the skill for 2D is about the drawing and painting technics . Thanks for your encouragements ! I should be able to post next tutorial on Wednesday .D is

Superbe travail, superbes réalisations que je découvre depuis le forum de PluXml.
Moi qui suis passionné de graphisme, là nous ne sommes pas, mais pas du tout dans le même monde : du 'pro' et de la qualité, de l'arrtistique même. Chapeau bas et surtout bonne route, car là c'est vraiment du très beau graphisme, tout comme la conception de ton site.
encore une fois : bravo !
