Raven

hello everybody, it's been a long time since I posted something down here but I am back with new stuff
I decided to go back to digital painting and here I am

Here is my current Wip, I am working on values instead of colours, when values will be fixed, I will be able to work on colours but the fact to work in a greyscale mode allows me to stay concentrated on mood, light, and coherence! It's an interessant way to work...

I am actually thinking about the elements in the background, don't really know what I am going to put there... I am kinda lost and hesitating. If you have any interesting proposition just tell me.

A lot more details need to be added to the clothes and of course the background environment

hope you will enjoy this WIP

comments and crits are welcome

i think the hat is a bit heavy for the frame of the body...but, i like the absence of too much detail in the background...maybe some mist and/or stark branches!

this has alot of potential, i love how you made the figure stand out. the hat is fine as long as you thin out the brim (take a look at some hats)

one thing that is bothering me, the figure is clearly looking at something, but we dont see what it is. what is he/she/whatever looking at and why? if they are looking away from the cliff, make the pose a bit more suggestive of that

other then that, i think this is going to be a fantastic piece! keep at it

thanks everyone, i think i won't overdetail the background, but it need some more details...
About the hat, You are right, I will try to slim it a bit on the brim

for the thing that the character is looking, in fact I want to create a relationship between painting and watcher. In fact, He is watching us as we are watching him. It's some kind of way to break it's 2d frame and to be part of the real world.
Don't you think it's a good idea?

great idea! make it obvious and it will work well i think :P

i like the colorless grayscale look. The shadows are more apparent, and imo, it goes overall with the mysterious tophat, the tight clothing - it seems sort of brooding.

here is an update, today between two website of flash I had the time to work a bit on the character
changed mainly his hat, face, and nearly finished the rocks
also added a bit of mist on the rock, this mist can highlight my character

I like the concept at all, but i'd like to suggest something,

About the scarf you added.

The line of the scafr is a bit different from the whole concept, the back of the character, the hat have a soft arc, but the scarf is too crispy, the line is angled. and it has a bit too more dept. the scarf is a thin stuff..

BTW. i love the character much, it has a nice depressing atmosphere. If you add the colors, this will be one of my favorite !

no, it isn't but I'm not done with volumes and values, when the composition and all the elements will be finished, I will add colours (don't really know wether I will go for a warm or a cold palette)
