HaveI ever said how much I love your works? A++
Hey love your stuff especially taimanin.
One suggestion though, I think when they are dead and beheaded, they should look lifeless.
Like darkened eyes, expressionless, eyes rolled etc.
I would do another Taimanin work in future. Someone ask me commission for this title. ^^
This work, I try to keep her alive in beheaded status :D
Hmm… There is lifeless variant. But that one I put into reward sort.
A little bonus for my supporter. :)
Your coloring and details are both pretty good.
Here's how you could improve your art. (imo)
Once in a while, you could try to vary your character poses more (yeah, I know: more work). As long as each poses are consistent with each other and what is depicted to happen, it would give a better feel of continuity than a feel of "time being frozen".
You could also consider looking at lighting techniques. Front lighting tend to flat things up (even with good blending), and some of your shadows could be more consistent with the overall scene lighting and the rest of the subject.
Again, its only the humble opinion of a fellow artist, and its up to you to consider what I said or not.
That aside, keep up with the good work! :)
I really like the Taimanin one, too.
On a side note to >>25372
Because eye rolling requires muscle contractions, it can only occurs while dying, not on death. At that point, they usually rest in a 'glazed' or 'dulled' expression… Unless the point is to make things silly on purpose, of course (like a cartoon, or like N.Dofline who does that well).
I want to try more… But looking back to the task list. I can't think too much for this temporary OTL
Sometimes I try to use more light effect. But the final result usually whole picture become so dark… OTL
I hope I can try some more….
Don't worry about that. As long as you don't rush things up, you can take your time and improve bit by bit. ;)
That's a good point on the eye, actually I've been wondering. Lots of drawings portray the eyes darker when dead, is that actually realistic?
Also the mouth tends to be slightly open too right?
I'm working on a drawing of mine as well, not sure how to nail the expression.
So far I have the face relaxed, eyelid 1/3rd closed, eyes looking forward, mouth relaxed with a very very slight opening
Yeah, the darker/duller look in eyes is a thing in real life. Since people who are alive tend to blink, their eyes are kept continually wet. When people die, if their eyes are left open, a film builds up over their eyeballs.
The film will take some time to be noticeable, however. The most immediate reason why the eyes seem darker is because the iris relaxes (it's a muscle), and opens the pupil more as a result.
As for the mouth, it usually opens up because of the gravity pulling the jaw down. Otherwise, its might be the most relaxed expression to whatever facial expression was being made just before death.
Thanks. This looks liked FATALITY :D
