Wielder of the Dazzleforce by Dreilex Wielder of the Dazzleforce by Dreilex
I FINALLY FINISHED THIS THING. It's my first real digital painting as well! As most of you can tell, this is a blatant tribute to/ripoff of :iconmakani:'s Taric portrait.

Available in 1280x800 in case you're interested in making your desktop truly, truly outrageous.

Very cool, the colouring gives good shape, the colour choice is solid and the effects are noticeable but don't take over the image.

I think you should probably start working on your tonal range control as well as your implied depth, tonal control is where you decide how lit an area is in general, and then allow its highlights only to go so bright etc, in this picture for example that'd be the right side of the face that you'd allow the highest highlight to be the midtone and your darkest tone to be closer to your shadow tone.

With implying depth you either lighten or darken regions overall as they move further back, look at the horizon for example and you'll see that things go paler and slightly more washed out the further away they are. This is because the light has a greater distance in which to diffuse with ambient light. this effect though it seldom occurs at short distances can still be used to great effect when describing shorter distances.

I really like it, digital painting is definitely your thing.

Ah, thank you very much for all the excellent tips, Kintall! I do plan to work with digital painting much more often from now on and this will definitely help me achieve a greater sense of depth and realism in my future art. I might even return to this and touch it up later!

Sorry I took so long to respond, that's me being lazy and I intend to stop it. Thanks for your comment, I'm honored to have my work examined and critiqued so well.

I already told you that this turned out amazing. I especially like how you did the hair.

Deciding what to do with the hair to make it noticeably different was a little tough, but I love rendering swirling, organic shapes like this. Thank you!

I wasn't sure if you or Odds did this linework (I think I remember seeing the avatar on AZ)?

Oh yeah, I had done the linework for this back when I started on my little League of Legends obsession. Taric was one of the first characters I picked up and played, and I guess it sort of stuck as a running gag. Eventually I made that avatar you saw, though I was too lazy to paint it for the longest time.

That's cool; I have pictures from over three years ago I haven't finished - things just happen like that sometimes I guess.
