Evangeline for Paperfantasy by OchreJelly Evangeline for Paperfantasy by OchreJelly
Portrait commish #7. :D

Ever since number 6, other work has caught up with me, and I've been very uninspired to work on other artwork. Which is not good. x_x I'm going to try my hardest to finish these by the time everyone wants them, but I might not be able to get all of them done in time. Sorry.

In case you were curious why I have uploaded some of these into portraits and others into people....it's because some of them I've used references for the facial-features and others I haven't. This one, because of the name of the character (Évangeline) I couldn't help but think of Evangeline Lily half the time (not like it's hard to *coughs all sneaky-like*) so I decided randomly to use her facial structure. And that's the reason for that....

Anyway, this particular one is *paperfantasy's character Évangeline. I really liked this character and it was fun to draw her (although my hand is cursing at me because of the hair. :P) I was going to add the scarf, but I didn't want to mess up the hair. *shrug* This was 7 hours of work, maybe? I've been using lots of green win the shadows of skin lately, I've noticed. I like how it looks, because it makes things look a bit less real and more fantasy-ish, if that makes any sense.

Anyway, I'm rambling. I hope you like it, *paperfantasy

EDIT: Fixed a few things so I can upload a print...sorry for the multiple resends. ^^;

This is so gorgeous. The things about it that caught my eye and held it the most were her hair (the texture of it, the depth of the colors used in it) and, for some reason, her corset (the way its shaded to look like silk and the detail on its lacings).

Backlighting is another one of those things that I have a thing for, especially with ears. I think I overuse it, because I don't think the light is strong enough for it to actually show up, but who cares? XD It's cool!

I love the sort of shimmery iridescent look to her corsett :heart:. It reminds me of a peacock feather XD. As alwasy, you painted her hair so nicely and realistically :nod: I also really love how you shaded her skin, and her bewbs ^___^. It's cool to see how you, Misty, and Emily all interpretted this character :D

Thank you. :D I thought it was cool to see all the renditions of her as well (and apparently Ania is going to draw her as well, too. XD) I actually am happy with how her corsett turned out...and ss for her skin and such, what can I say...I like skin shading. ^^;

And you're right about the clouds. I didn't notice that before...

Always very nice to see your shading on skin; you always include the little hints of skintone variations of reds, yellows, slight slight greens, violets and blues that make it all that much interesting and convincing :nod: I really like all the sensitive features that her visual appearance pulls together very well, angel-esque posibbly. And for some weird reason looking at this image, makes me want to go purchase the Starwards DVDbox collecter's set, ...or maybe I've just been yearning fo rthat for a lengthy time now... :XD: lol Dunno, but nice continuation in quality in your 'bust series' :D

Rararah, O_O Actually, I believe a 2nd edition was just released recently, like a month or so backwards. But there was also one released last year (with Darth Vaders head invading the cover), which is the better of the 2 I heard, since it has more extra content and a more satisfying film transfer and mastery.

It's okay, I very much missed it myself :faint:

I've noticed I don't use black for shading often. o_o; I've used green a lot for skin shading lately, actually. Or blue. Anyway, I'm glad you like it....thanks a lot.

The only thing I'm not too fond of is the green eyebrows. It looks like she went overboard with a pack of kool aid. I do like how you can see the bones or veins in her hand. It looks very realistic

Perhaps they are a bit obvious being so green, but that's part of the colour scheme she has. ^^; As for the bones/veins...I really like doing that sort of thing, as you might have noticed. It's a subtle thing, but it adds a nice touch, I hope. Thank you. :D

I dunno, I'm not too happy with the hair; it's a very time consuming thing to do, and my technique could stand improvement. But..that aside I'm happy that you think it looks good, because then maybe I'm just being paranoid. XD Thanks!
