Not sure what the etiquette here is for uploading a huge album, so i'll put here a select number of images that are gory.
Full album here:https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/78438117
Got a bunch of backstory in other albums there if interested.
Anyways, feedback and suggestions welcome.
Meanwhile, i got a question, should I try to make lighting realistic? Or should I try to make lighting aesthetic? This is especially an issue for dimmer scenes.
This album was not so interesting but first one was really funny and great fight when those tiny goblins stuffed one of the angels pussies with arrows.
second chapter was a bit lame fight because angels just got stuck by lighting or something and ended with pretty much instant death. In the end, they were beaten like dead horses.
It would be more spectacular if those goblins defeated them without using magic. for example latching onto those angels like swarm of ants and attacking them from various directions like in the first chapter
I need to look at your other series to be more acurate because maybe you already did all that :) But as I see you tend to finish fights with magic which is sort of cheating.
One problem with your pictures is that everything is super complex and it takes quite some effort to see what is going on there. so you probably need to make better choice of colors to make characters better contrast with background if that's possible.
as for example angel armor is same color as walls it should be gold or green. goblin characters also are very similar to the background.
But overall it is all excellent work.
Pretty good I think! I think the lighting should have more contrast though, quite busy scenes.
Nice work. I can tell you've put a lot of effort into making this.
Lighting is one of the most important and insanely difficult steps to master. Try experimenting with other colored lights and phasing out your white lights.
Keep up the great work!
Wow, thanks for the feedback!
I definitely wanted to reduce the use of the OP magic that I wrote myself into in the previous chapter, so I used this chapter to destroy the staff.
Will definitely try to make the fight last longer and more struggles in the future. Others have pointed out on pixiv that they still mostly fight like trash mobs.
As for color, will try to change their outfit a fair bit. This was the outfit from my very first chapter long ago, and I am seeing a lot of issues with it, like the skirt clipping etc.
As for the complexity of the scenes, I used to do about twice as many images per scene in different angles to try to capture all of whats going on, but I felt as if that was almost like stuffing it with fillers. Should I add more angles like before?>>35879
More contrast hmm, Will try for sure.
Colored lights… interesting, like blue/red/yellow shades?
Biggest change that would give you immediate effects is using LRE in HS, and a preset LRE map.
Compound that with DoF settings and saturation and the sorts in LRE setting, you'll get it looking slick, difference for me is night and day.
If you're already using it then I'd suggest toying around with existing templates as it's hard to tell right now.
Perhaps you could try 4K skins and maps to make the textures look less blocky, and maybe use darker and bette blood projectors
LRE is the cube map right? Can it work without giving me the environment and only lighting?>>35888
I got a LOT of different maps that I could use but they wouldn't necessarily match up with the story so well.
Maybe for standalone pics or albums I can do that.
Thanks for your suggestions.
Yes they can, just choose one that makes sense for your map, but I've opted to just use cubemaps for the background, though it is indeed limiting.
The new ones look better :) now if only I knew how to use Photoshop.
If you haven't gotten HSS, it'll help too with lighting especially when using the right skins.
As you can see the floor has awful texture, that's when I would opt for a cubemap, but then you'd need to custom add shadows to show the depth effects.
I'll give cube maps a go when I get a chance to make a backup of my files. Last time I did something big with mods, I broke it entirely.
I did want to make a series in modern times with normal people at some point that would be able to use higher res maps.
What is HSS btw?
HSStandard, it replaces the default lighting and gives items/hair/skin better lighting.
I use it with LRE and it looks like a modern game.
>>35881>As for the complexity of the scenes, I used to do about twice as many images per scene in different angles to try to capture all of what is going on, but I felt as if that was almost like stuffing it with fillers. Should I add more angles like before?
No. Probably I was not very clear, but I mean image complexity, not scene complexity as there is a lot of detail. so when you look at the picture it looks almost as noise where you cannot recognize stuff easily and need to make some effort to see what is going on there.
this also happens in the manga where artists get overzealous with adding detail.
So you could try using simpler, flatter textures, select more contrasting environments even if that sort of reduces realism and also select other angles of view were characters do not pose in front of other items or characters of similar color.
for example >>35851
if you moved the camera a bit to the left, the angel would be visible in the background of the sky not in the background of the tower where she is barely visible.
But this is not something extremely serious wahst you absolutely need to do. Everything still looks prety good.
Ah, gotcha. Make the picture more about the subject, and make it standout more. Will try to keep that in mind.>>35896
Seems I am already using it. Thanks.
Oh and I just got a question: why angels are fighting with goblins instead of demons as usual ? ;)
Originally I wanted to play with the idea of large size difference in fights and this is just an continuation of it.
I do want to bring some demonic elements at some point.
Got any suggestions for such a scene/story? :)
I did not see all your works yet , there is just so many.
But yes this size difference idea is pretty good,it looks very great when one angel is surrounded by many goblins attacking her.
I was thinking about demons of the same small size, aka Imps who have not that much fighting skill but can overwhelm hem with numbers.
As for other story ideas, I woud love to see how angels win/retreat temporarily while getting all stuffed with arrows and bleeding.
To include demonic element maybe just add one demon at first who is in control/manipulating those goblins.
so that after angels actually win against goblins they have do deal with the demon while being wounded already.
I think demon also should be a girl like angels but maybe a bit smaller.
Heh yeah I got a lot of albums, most are of the same continued story line that I'm improvising as I go.
Those are some great ideas btw, I think I can implement them next.
i've loved the part where they slowly impale the dead angel making her head lift up in the process, also the lightning making her pale dead body shine and highlighting all the details of her belly was so sexy 😋😍
Great although I would have impaled her tits on the spikes in the fire grate! But great hope we see the roasting and cutting up for christmas
Those goblins are super strong if they can list her in pair only LOL
She is just huge like cow. maybe adding 2 more goblins woud be good idea ;)
but otherwise i like how you pose her thinking about all details.
I wonder what they are going to do with that dead body.
Eat it ?
Hmm, How would I make it for say mid day daylight? I tried making it but it didn't look right no matter what colors I used :/>>35938
Happy to serve :)>>35945
Heh, guess she can be some form of a turkey XD>>35946
Oh, those two are Orcs, kinda wimpy looking facially speaking, but they are far bigger than goblins I have in this series. Still True that it looks a bit comical to see only two orcs that are much smaller than the angel lifting her I suppose. Will change that next time.
My posing strategy has been, getting into the mind of the characters and seeing what they could use and no going back after a decision made. That has caused me to have some unfortunately short fights in my first few angel vs goblins ones, and I am trying to extend the fight a bit here and will extend it more in future fights. Especially with someone who is supposed to be much much stronger as the case here.
And yeah, they'll eat it. How long do you think it will last them? :P
Please enjoy this Christmas Angelic turkey roast for your holidays
Your latest looks outstanding! Nice work on your color choices!
I get an impression that angels are primary food of orcs and goblins LOL
If angels stop attacking they all will just starve to death.
Not sure about your technical capabilities but it woud be nice to see her entire crowd of goblins around waiting to get their piece :)
Thanks! Though night is much easier to pull off than day time.>>35989
They certainly won't pass the opportunity when it arrives! Can ya blame them? :P
For now, this will be the last angel to die for a while as I can't think of a story reason for them to get immediately involved. It will go back to the Elves vs Goblins as the goblins are occupying what used to be a town here.
As for giving bits and pieces to the cast here, I can try making one last frame, almost like a last supper kinda thing where everyone eats some part of the angel partially carved up. But only one angle as I don't have enough time to cover multiple. Is that okay?
Oh yes that's fine. One angel is enuogh to feed a lot of orcs and goblins
It is juts interesting to see a big crowd of them celebrating victory :)
gorge pn those fat tits
hehe, I expected a bit more goblins but thanks anyway.
Picture looks pretty good ;)
Looks like a tasty Christmas dinner!
