C/C Please

Well last week my c drive got fried when my cats dumped a cup on tea on my computer so I lost the commission I'd been working on but I was able to re-render and I've been trying to get this done. This looks a bit harsher to me than it does before I shrunk it down (I might give her the 2200x2200 jpg instead) Anyway I am so sick of looking at this and thinking about this that I wanna get it done. So any help would be great bah gotta fix that stinkin shadow behind her I see...

This is the first one that I lost if anyone wants to see. She changed her mind about how many blades her lightsaber had and I wasn't done with making it not look like a giant purple dildo yet but yeah ... it would have been nice.

Looks great to me! Glad to see you got the hair to looks just as good if not better Know you were worried bout that.

Hahhhah

Like I said befo, I love this new one. Love the hair changes (love the hair rnnngggh!!) you made and the lightsabre looks fab! Not sure I have too much CC on it, however. It looks really great as is.

Maybe brighten up what's lit by the lightsabre a bit (maybe around her hand), not necessary though. You could maybe at some atmospheric stuff like smoke or sparks.

She does blend in a bit with the background, you could brighten her up if you felt that way. Again, she looks good this way since she's blending in with the shadows ;D

All just suggestions feel free to tell me to shove it ;D <3

There is something about the way her hand is closed around the lightsaber that looks "off" to me, like she isn't holding it tightly enough for it to be at the angle it is at.

Other than that, it looks awesome. I love Star Wars, and I got a friend to start reading the books I had already read, and I would tease him with a non-existent character I called Darth Jaina. When I saw this picture, that was the first thing to pop into my head: "DARTH JAINA!!!!!!!"... except real Jaina has brown hair, so the second thing to pop into my head was "No! DARTH MARA!!!!!!" which is a red-headed character but yeah anyways, looks great!!

Two things I particularly like about this:

1.) The red lighting on the edges of her boots and boob and shoulder etc.
2.) Her face actually looks like a real person. There is something about most rendered people that just looks unnatural to me; something about the eyes and the lips... they all look related. Not her. And I love that.

Her reference picture was an actress from the Harry Potter movies (Tonks) so I didn't want to make her overly pretty but more intense. I dunno about that lightsaber the prop didn't come with any hand poses so I improvised LOL. Since she's had to wait and been really nice throughout this while losing all my shit thing, and she's a repeat customer, I'm gonna add in some extras for her. I've never done any Star Wars stuff before so this is new.

I messed with it a tiny bit more added more purple on her suit by the lightsaber. I think I'm done I'm so sick of looking at it LOL.

Well, it looks very "Star Wars", in case you were wondering, lol. The pose is perfect, the empty hand hanging that way (instead of how it was in the dual-bladed lightsaber (which was also an awesome picture)) seems more like a welcoming gesture, like "Come on in, and let me show you how nicely this purple lightsaber fits through your spinal column". The whole thing could fit either a Sith, or an arrogant Jedi trying to hide their arrogance, or some sort of Dark Jedi thing, but with the strappy leather and the cape, it all looks "evil" or "turning-evil" to me.

The background also looks like the interior of the Star Destroyers (the big triangle ships) in whatever you call the section of a ship where they have all the big cannons. The uh... cannon area... is black with red lights and the cannons look almost identical to those quarter-round things with the red lights on them. I tried to get a screenshot from the movie but I can't find it, so just take my word for it... it looks like a Star Destroyer turbolaser emplacement area thingy as depicted in the movies and the Clone Wars series.

And, yeah, she does look like Tonks!

She's supposed to be a Jedi gone bad and I've never really been able to make it thru an entire Star Wars movie LOL. So I'm winging it. She's got 2 of her guildies wanting to get me to do pictures for them now too. ><

Well she decided she'd like some lightning coming out of her hand... so back at it tomorrow. I gotta say I am very underwhelmed by the lightning brushes I've found.
KaAnna 12 years ago
Really? On DeviantArt? Whenever I need lightning I go straight for Ravnheart's old, old brushes. Apparently, they aren't available anymore though. :/ I'm quite surprised Ron/deviney doesn't have any o_O

I am finding only ones with an outer glow already and I just want plain ones. I can do my own glowly shit.
KaAnna 12 years ago
Ack. Yer right, not many without the annoying glow. I found a pack that .. maybe? doesn't have it (or very little), but I think it's $3. It comes in PSD, JPG, PNG, maybe you can remove whatever glow it may have.

Here's the link, maybe, if yer interested. http://ivanvashchenko.deviantart.com/art/Lightning-pack-209344490

Other than that, yeah mostly everything has glows. You may be able to remove it via the Channel menu with Levels.

Faeini found me these http://kakefat.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d10gktb They aren't mind blowing but I think they work. I just never know when it's too much with this sort of thing... bleh.
Laschae 12 years ago

Hahaha :/

It may be up to the commissioner how much lightning she wants, but if you're going for Star Wars "realistic"-ish, Force Lightning would be a bit more than this. But this can also be her about to cast it, or just showing off ;D

But this looks really good, in my opinion ;D The lightning looks good and I love how to sort of attaches itself to the blade.
Laschae 12 years ago
Yeah she said that the way her hand was posed she thought that a little lightning coming out like she's about to cast something would look cool and Erik kept piping in about how it needs to go into the lightsaber. He even tried to get me to watch some star wars clips on youtube...
KaAnna 12 years ago
Hahhaa, he's so um.. well.. helpful. /cackle ;D

Looks good though For sure. I know yer eager to be done with this lol
Laschae 12 years ago
Yeah helpful...I was like shut up already. I'm so ready to be done and I told her guildies I can't do anything else for a bit because I have other things I need to get done so I'm gonna buy some time to do something that I might enjoy. They can wait or find some one else.
Laschae 12 years ago
YAY SHE LIKES IT I'M FINALLY DONE!!! *takes nap*
