View Full Version : Character - flying 2d nude girl

Hello there!

I made this image using poser for reference and painted over with painter. I took 8 hours to finish it splited in two days.

Thank you for any critiques.

Nice work Orly.

Few comments, the face and expression has a definate poser model face look to it, I was wondering how much reference you used from Poser for this piece. Poser's facial expressions are unique in that, well...they don't look too realistic using those controls, especially the smiling.

The cloth really fits well into that background, definately working with that soft green color.

The hair is a little too dark against the background and cloth, perhaps give it a hint of green like you did with the cloth.

Good work.

That’s a very interesting technique: painting over a poser model. The image looks very nice.

I have a few comments though:
- her left hand looks a little stiff
- she looks like she is sitting, and not really floating
- her facial expression is a little awkward [you might want to make it a little more subtle]
- her hair kind of clumps and flows in one direction [for a more realistic look, you may want to have her hair spread out a little more]

Aside from that -
Good work!

Thank you all for your opinions!

Cinematography & Cedaie:
It was very inlightning, and I agree with the observations made about her expression, hair and hands. I realy haven't notest those.

And about her apearence It realy looks like a mix of those two godess.

Back to the old 20k atachment

If it dosen´t work let me know.:thumbsdow

Looks like the attachment is working.

nice work:thumbsup:

seems like there is a little bit of porportion problems, but it could just be the extreme forshortening that's throwing me off:shrug:

I really like the cloth

Yes I have the bad habit of exagerating poses, after all I haved used poser, so I felt free to exagerate.:thumbsup:

Thanks for the confirmation!

I´ve tried to fix the bad linking of the first image posted, aparently this great stupid did not know that the image should be renamed as .txt:annoyed:

but then again, perhaps I´m just inexperient.

cool, sounds good:D

yeah the attachment is working, but the two images that you posted (post 1 and 8) still don't show up though. I don't know what's going on there, sorry.

keep up the good work:buttrock:

Looking at a model for reference is a little different than painting over the model.

very nice :)

11 November 2003, 04:31 PM
very good. I like how you captured the rennaissance style.

The links aren't broken. You can view it here(just click on the link):

Apparently your site doesn't support direct linking from an external source.

interresting. Her face changes from usual sexbombs. it's a good thing. Kinda academic but good. Her left leg is a bit weird in the "shortcut", guess the perspective is good but...

I also think you should forget poser (Grooveholmes, regards), coz it has no style and in the meantime, you could recognize a character from poser in a full crowd of characters.

i'm not sure you need it, do you?

see ya ;)

I realy like the neo-classic style.
Neat stuff.

Wow! What a pleasent surprise to see this link insurrection!
First of all, this was the only time Ive ever had used poser directely under my painting, generaly i use it as reference for studing poses and them I sketch it from a printing I make from the pose Ive defined. The next step is to scan the drawing containing my trace style. The only reason Ive painted over the model was for the short schedule I had for it, two days in my free time at night. But I dont intend to repeat it again, the smile as you all saw is permanently damaged, Im unable to fix it. Unless I redraw it and paint it again, however I prefer to leave it the way it is, to remind me of the mistake Ive made and the lesson Ive took from it.

Thank You all for your comments, I will be posting some more new things soon, wich Ive havent used poser at all.:thumbsup:

Keep up!

Cool, I look forward to seeing more of your stuff.

It look like Michel Ange! Anyway, I like this work where it's expressive and no static!
excellent work! :thumbsup:

Wow. I really don't have any crits here.
I really liked the simplicity of the scene and the strenght that it passed me.

I think it's great, I love this style.

Great piece of thing that distracted me a little was the left leg....
Maybe it is the prespective that is playing games with my eyes.... it looks kinda small when compared to the rest of the image......

and the eyes.... is it closed or open.... i can see only some white spcae....that makes the face look kinda ghostly....

the painting, clothees and background look real good....

kudos ..... :drool:

Martin Murphy, one of my favorite digital illustrators used to use poser all the time, here's a tutorial ( he prepared back in 1999
