Emily by Revonael Emily by Revonael
DD? :faint:

--

Second completed vexel; I think I'm getting better.

I'm pretty happy with the ruffles and the right half of her face. She had a bunch of hair and knitted hatlike stuff that I recognized I probably couldn't do well. I covered it with black instead.

I did it from a fashion picture I "borrowed" from the art room.

About... 10? 12? 15? hours.

Critique'd be much appreciated; still pretty new to this art form.

this is the coolest style I've even come across! I like how the cellshading still makes this piece really soft...and it has a really nice flow to it as well!
Awesome job! o u o b

Hawt damn I really love the detail in the head piece and ruffles! I have a tip though, for the left side of the face, I would definitely make it a darker shade. The dark gray kind of makes the vexel looks like it's having weird contrast issues. But then again it could just be my monitor? It is freakishly bright O_O

Anyway, congrats on the DD. It's truly deserving :)

the almost lineart drawing of the reflles makes a very interesting contrast with the quite photographic rendering of face, so it's neither hyperrrealism nor line art, I think it makes a "plus" :)
(don't mind my awful english, it's late, and it's never have been my native our even favourite language, I hope the comment help anyway :D)

Mhh such fine art gives motivation to practice vexel !

The skin needs a lot of work. The rest looks alright though.

Well, with so much work gone into the rest of the pic, I'd suggest doing something to the left side of her face to make it as detailed as the rest, for one. It sticks out and gives the impression that you just wanted to get it uploaded rather than put in a couple more hours. Some of the shapes you've made on her skin appear a little awkward, throwing off the smooth shading on the rest of the vexel. I'm also a little unsure about the shading on her nose, especially the tip - the darker shading there makes it look like her nose is flat at the end rather than rounded. Is there any chance you could upload the original image somewhere (scraps here or photobucket, etc)? That way I may be able to give a few more pointers.

The rest of the vexel is great, you've obviously put a lot of time and effort into it and the lineart on the ruffles is a really good touch. The skin just needs some more hard work pumping into it to make it look as nice and smooth as the rest. If needs be, add in more transition layers at very low opacities to help gain back that smoothness.
