New Illo






Time to start painting again. Here is the preliminary work for a new illustration. I found this DKNY ad in a magazine and thought it would make a cool girl picture. I need to do some more work on the skirt and to make sure that her pose looks natural. Any thoughts would help.

dopeness man!

the guy who is laying on the ground looks like he is lifting up a bit, watch for that, but overall it is looking good!

Sweet. Captivating. What did she do????

Think weight when in walk pose. See how the pose in the live-pic see has left foot already planted. Her weight is all coming down on that leg, that's whythat side of her hips are up (higher than the other side).
Maybe ... you might add some hint of a shadow on the ground plain to ground her, or establish the ground plain with the body of the guy she just shot.

COOL idea. I love where this is going!

Hey IO... I did a quick fix up in Photoshop of what "I" think can be different...
I think the dead body should be in a different place, right now, its just a little too weird for the eye to follow that straight line down.... even if he were moved to the right, and not turned (how I laid him out) it might work better...

Otherwise I think the ellipses on the top of the girl's skirt needs to be fixed, and then the bottom I think so too... if her leg is pulling straight out, the skirt would have the extra material bilowing out, it would be pulled to the leg...

And then her hips, I took the hips out of the left side, and left the scrumptious booty on the backside... Only reason the DKNY photo has the hip poping is (Like Mike W said) cause of the weight transfer...

Hope that wasnt too much.. sorry but I am in a crit mode tonight..

Thanks, the guy looks better there, the ellipse too. Back to work.

Think: more shadows! On a photo it might not matter, but we artists must give the picture more contrast and depth - or else the objects look like floating. The concrete looks darker towards us. I would also like to see some shadows on her skirt.
I really liked your take on this criminal babe: especially, the facial expression.
Keep it up.
