View Full Version : Temptation (nudity)

08 August 2005, 11:53 AM
hello folks^^

welcome to my new wip thread. this one is kindly sponsored by rebecca kimmel and hong ly ;). i did this one after a foto by hong ly in rebecacs really really great artistic anatomie lecture :) *commercial* join the figurative art forum *commercial end*

ah well, i thought about making her a full colour painting and decided on making her a succubus because with this legs of hers you cant't be human ;). because this is about temptation and the most famous succubus is lilith, i added some snakes to the altar (yeah, going for stereotypes somewhat, but i couldn't resist).

beyond the alter will be a mirror reflecting her succubus shape. but you will see some subtile details of it on the main body as well.

comments and critiques are most welcome :)

Whoa, it's a little creepy...

I'm sure you're still working on it. But her stomach and breasts look a little....meaty.

It also has this weird, perverted christian thing happening on it. Maybe you could show god getting off in the corner. Could she have cloved feet, or claw-like hands, maybe not so entirely human.

I look forward to seeing it completed.

Hmm... he's right, you overdid the creases a bit.

That porption does look unatural a bit, the bottom of the rib cage sticking out that far and the stomach area. I dunno maybe easing the shadow on the underside a tiny bit might help or just fixing that top side. But it's looking pretty good so far and I would love to see the end results.

i did some work on the textures and overall light this evening., also worked on the pedestral and the hair. the little buggies are the scarabs. i kind of like them but i think i will ad some flying ones too.

Comment: Oh're awfully good with the human flesh...You have this...Michaelangelo's (I know bad spelling) way of painting (or was it Leonardo da Vinci)...I love what you've done with the meshing of snake and human skin...Lovely.

Crit: You need to still work on her anatomy part. The rib cage and stomach area. Her forearm that's closet to us the viewer does not look right. her hand looks way too wrinkled. And her pointed foot needs a little work.

I know fully well you are working on it right now... I just want to remind you.:D

thank you for reminding me ;) in fact i am currently working on the ribcage and stomach area, but it won't feel right -.-. you are absolutly right about the hand, it is unsmudged untill now^^. i just had to do something about the background first before coming back to the figure.
