Latest Update: Final Image: Stigmata


#2

well i thought of something diferent for this challenge, i will try to capture a moment where a girl reading a bible recieves a stigmata from God.


#3

currently i’m much further with this piece but here’s the step where i try to get the colour palette ready, i’m pretty happy how the face works out


#4

and here’s the current stand


#5

well i’m trying to get the face as i want it to be but still way off


#6

a bit closer to what i want to achieve,starting to block out the dress hand and book…


#7

now i have the hand blocked out in place, but still have to work on the fingers and shading, i will move the cross up and see how it works out, i want it silver and pretty complicated, the second thing is the rosary, if the cross works out fine i won’t add the rosary, but i’m pretty sure the most work will go to the clothing, the flame burning out the stigma will be a pretty tricky thing aswell.


#8

after a long time of remaking the hand i finally have the right shape, now it’s for the details, next stop the dress.


#9

dress finally blocked out,color changed,now it’s for the detail, the face still requires some liquifier tool work cuz after a mirror flip it still looks quite off, there will be pretty much more blood aswell,and a second stigma on the hand, i’m happy becouse everythings finally there-as mentioned now for the details. Any comments/crits…i’m pretty alone here :((

really like your sketch! :stuck_out_tongue: the colours are pretty bold! white … pink … even black … good choice i must say! :stuck_out_tongue: make the blood more apparent by letting it trickle down her hand and on the white dress as well … that will surely be a hit!..
try adding more gloss to her eyes as if she’s about to cry …
just ideas :wink: hope they help ya :stuck_out_tongue: really love ur work!
good luck to u! :thumbsup:

Hey, you’ve been working hard! Ithink you heve beeen posting more frecuently than anyone else in the illustration challenge lately!, don’t feel lonely :wink: these last days everyone seems to be either taking a break or working really hard to catch up with things, but is great you entered too. I have a feeling for this kind of mistic things so I like your picture a lot, I could suggest you to make the hair a bit less ‘flat’ on the area over the eye, where it is more lit, I guess you’re still on that…

I think it’d look fine if you make the overall feel of the painting more yellow-amber and fade to darker tones in the edges of the canvas, as in old, weathered colonial church paintings, you could try this in the end with a filter.
Good work! keep it on!:thumbsup:


#13

Thx for the warm words Steevie,…yeah the little adjustments will take a solid amount of time.


#14

here’s a first shot at the oryginal res, the chair will be pretty much diffrent in the final image, much more bulky, i want to add a small baby angel flying aswell,i’m feeling her right hand will be a pain in the a$$


#15

better quality sample,not yet a milestone…


#16

the last update doesnt quite look as rich as the others. but its a great image none the less.


#17

Well, nice work…


#18

Hey thanks guys for dropping by, finally some life in my thread… i’m happy like a child.
@Slav:please specify , but i think it’s the reddish tonation, i’ll have to stick to it…


#19

Ok the dress is starting to pop out, tomorrow’s sunday and maybe then i’ll be able to make some solid progress, still many things to do, i’m a bit confused with the milestones thingy, final image is the last update or can i repost it many times ? any crits…


#20

well i really like this update.http://assets.cgsociety.org/challenge/entries/19/14149/14149_1193989025_medium.jpg

the colors look rich and warm. i am not sure but somehow the white dress makes the other colors look chalky and desaturated. even though i am sure that its not the case. maybe try to really saturate your darks, or something a along those lines. just a suggestion though. maybe i am just going nuts here. i don’t know.
