Overwhelmed.

Just one tiny caveat. It kind of looks like she is firing backwards and hitting her own robot. The backflare from the pistol in her left hand is probably not necessary? Right now it looks like it either functions like a LAW with massive backblast or she's somehow aiming it behind her.

But don't take that as harsh criticism. The overall impact is very powerful and very well done!

It's still a work - so the

It's still a work - so the backflare is something that's easy to work with. Also need to fix the flare on her feet and saber.

I don't worry about criticisms much - I put in 2-3 hrs a week on these so it's not like I'm personally attached to them. I enjoy doing them and love it but I know my personal limitations on skill. I generally figure one of the artists here will jump in and do a proper one for someone.

I started doing sketchings and such with a goal of spending no more than 1 night - about 2 hrs a week on a drawing and then never going back to it. Goal was to get to the level of speed where I could whip out something quickly that would be useful for storyboards or such for work. I got very tired of waiting a week to get back basically 10 wire sketches of something.

Probably the single greatest unsung masters of art are comic book artists. They'll do 300-600 semi-detailed drawings a month at a quality level that's really impressive. I read an interview with John Buscema where someone asked him how he could just do that like a machine and he said, "You just do it. Every day. Draw something. Give yourself a deadline and stick to it.". Which I always thought was some of the best advice.

I'm not ever going to be a skilled artist - but I am now to the point where when I need a mock up I can do my own in five hours. Get it approved, and then hand it off to an artist to get the final done. That's been my goal and it seems to have worked. So, when I say I'm not an artist - I really am not. I sketch quick and then use tools to make up for my lack of skill ;) So I take no criticism as an issue - it's probably dead on. And in this case it is most definitely. :)

I played around a bit with the flare - so it's not quite so oppressive. But the intent actually was a pistol with enough blast to say... blow the top off a building. So a LAW isn't too far off - maybe a little under powered. This is Enalios, who based the description - was a Holy Terror in the Rogue Aisles so was going for a bit of overkill there.

Don't think anyone will think she's hitting the robot behind her - and I figured out that moving it... was a serious pain. I may try this again with a bit more landscape shape to the image which will give me more room to play with.

This is a huge improvement! Comparing the two side by side is very revealing. Now it appears there is chaos all around her but she stands apart from it like a true supervillain. I really like this version! Very powerful.

@Foradain, I'm going out of my comfortzone for you!

Based on what you put in your thread I made this sketch. However, it may be the language barrier, I can't quite figure out what you mean with how the staff looks, so I gave her a basic wooden staff for now.
Further updates will be posted in my thread

Except the metal should be more of a golden bronze, shouldn't have the ridges, and there should be more of them down the length of the staff.

one of these day I need to get an actual tablet. still do the old fashion way here...pencil and paper then scan in. of course then I get the mind numbing job of redueing all the lines with the ole mousey but I don't mind really as it allows me to adjust things. :)

should be easy enough. just use the round edge at the end of the staff as reference. then draw other round part just like the end all the way up the staff but extend then a smidge wider than the staff itself. :) of course everything is "easy" when talking about it...it's the actual doing that becomes the bear...and stars above know that I have a lot of issues when trying to figure things out sometimes.

Once you go drawing tablet,

Once you go drawing tablet, you never want to go back drawing with your mouse! I advise it strongly to every digital artist. Truly you don't need a fancy one. Just don't get a tiny one. I have the Wacom Intuos 3 (wide, but it really doesn't matter). Got it for 50% off too, but that was..wow... 5 years back already . You can get those for even less now, lesser than less if you search for a used one. And the intuos 3 is awesome, I garantee you'll love working with it.

It's not so much the how do I add the details as it's .. what details. I may be interpreting the words incorrectly, see something completely different due to a language difference, but that's alright. I'll just try something, show it, see if I have the right idea and if not, I'll retry after some new explaining from your side . It's all good practise

I've always really admired the old 60's and 70's ad art works, the old Tales to Astonish kind of magazine and even the pin up girl painting looks. Those... were artists. They still used paint and ink and brushes and did fifty full paintings a month. Those guys were art machines. :) And they had more skill than 99% of our best artists today. Untaught, untrained - just... they did art.

You look at the Buscemas,who could sketch entire epics on napkins while having lunch (and often did - a lot of the more famous Conan covers happened on Deli napkins), or people like Gil Kane or Steranko who are literally taught in software design because of the elegance and efficiency of their layouts... a lot of 'old school' artists. We don't see that in the modern styles that have come since.

They're slicker and more realistic and gritty but .. they've lost a lot. So I like to work to get that look if I can - it takes a lot to do it right. I've been working on this for a good part of two weeks now just playing with the colors and still don't have it anywhere near where it should be. I get basically an hour or two every couple days - but even still - if this were a more modern look I'd have had it done by now. You just slap the colors using an overlay and multiply - and done. :) But there's no strokes because you basically use markers and airbrush strokes. It's all smooth with overly lines today - very easy work comparatively.

It looks amazing!

The only flaw that caught my eye, even in the pencils, is that the shadow under her arms and on her breast seems too hard, sharp, and dark. I thought, at first, that her costume had a tabard on the front, so the line was caused by darker material there.

As time goes by you'll see

As time goes by you'll see those disappear... In fact since just updated your post may confuse some. I've started actually putting more time on my stuff. Last year my rule was to never spend more than a couple days on something and move on. I'd been told to try that as I needed to work on speed for deadlines. I do this for fun, but my main focus was to add a skill. Basically get to where I felt competent I could if needed meet deadlines on design work.

It helped tremendously so I'm now enjoying working on better quality and spending time actually putting in more effort, taking time to go back and fix mistakes clean things up and feel a bit more confident in my finished stuff - develop work flows again.

Here's as far as I can take it today. Have another 2 weeks of shifts coming up so probably won't be on much for a bit here but I'll update it when it's done. Here's the direction -- as you can see a lot of the lines are cleaned up - first pass on the hair and starting in on the giant robot - I'll drop the spacey background on it again when it's done. But that'll be a couple weeks from now.

Fly Girl is um... um... no

Fly Girl is um... um... no idea. But I'm sure someone will create her eventually.

LOL ... no, actually Fly Girl was a character of mine. She was one of those bizarre builds people talked about but rarely did. Flight, air superiority, 5 slot punch (which ironically was very useful in pvp since it dropped toggles like crazy and was very useful against scrappers and tanks), hurricane, pretty much nothing but air based abilities like group fly and other essentially useless powers. :)

She hardly ever got played poor kid. Was like the slow kid in kickball. :)

With me getting ready to move on to another position at work I'll have some more time (hopefully) and wanted to get my hand back into some stuff. I need to go back and fix several drawings I started. Theres the android with the tuxedo made of circuits I want to take another stab at... and a few others.. Enalios for example. So I started with FlyGirl to get my hands back into things.

Here's my start on a 2nd stab at Enalios...
Enalios Sketch 1 by rjakobson, on Flickr

Enalios Color v1 by rjakobson, on Flickr

As you can see - we dropped the cutlass (it was in the way) and opted for a 2nd pistol, and I'm starting to look at colors, added the skull belt buckle and we'll start looking at more details. I'll also do one that's just straight up the character's costume with no embellishments when I'm done.

Wow! This is like, the last thing I expected to find today. I haven't checked the forums in awhile (been busy writing). Thank-you. This is beautiful!

Too late... she's moving to her own place... well... over to another thread. If people want to see her they'll have to look for it!

J/K but you raise a valid point. We have enough threads for personal things - this one should be reserved for actual requests - which is something that I've abused in the past. I'll make up for it by working extra hard on requests here :)

I have plenty! How about

I have plenty! How about Cloudwatcher (aka Jonathan Winchester)? - His face is mostly covered underneath a helmet (it's a kind of computerised thing that, when it's searching, has a orange/yellow colored hud in front of it). It should be right up your alley
Here is a reference... given, not a very good one.

Still working on Enalios -

Still working on Enalios - but started experimenting with Albus Umbra again... he's going to take a while but finally located a good way to do that tuxedo I think.

I know - I know - hairs all wrong and I took extreme liberties with the mask... the tux though I final got a good brush to recreate.

I was actually looking at

I was actually looking at robots at a presentation this week where I work and they had a pic of... it's not an android and it's not really a robot, was designed for the International Space Station. One of the faces they had (which is not the final version) had this wire mesh speaker where the mouth and nose where, but shaped like that.

The face plate was off, and there were these camera eyes, and that speaker and the rest was this kind of West World robot guts inside the helmet. Gave it a very eerie almost human - almost alien - robotic look.

So I stole it. :) It's mine now... and if you want it... you'll have to pay TEN MILLION DOLLARS. MUhahahaha!!!

Okay... all joking aside. That's where I got it. I went for more of an organic techno look, which based on the description - we're not dealing with a human but new life form completely. If you look at the sketch reference - it's not entirely far off. Granted head on, this is a kind of almost beak - but the mask itself is St. Croix cross like thing so I just opened it up and instead of having facial features that a new life form might have we're looking inside the man/machine. Its disturbing but it's supposed to be so you know this isn't anything like what you've seen before.

And I'm a huge fan of things like the original Sandman with the gas mask look too so... there is that also. Its that whole, you can't see eyes, just these sort of lenses and there's no mouth it's a rebreather like thing. Very alien and yet at the same time it's on what is clearly a man with a hat. Here I'm just taking a Korean pop hair cut and a open neck tux/suit and doing something similar with the St. Croix cross by making it a mask with goggles and a rebreather... it just happens to also be his / its / face so it's doubly creepy to me. If that thing looked at me and started walking toward me I'd pee my pants. :)

Just some thoughts. Needs a lot of work yet but its a solid start.

Yeah, I tried the non-shiny sparkles and all I got were 'kles' - apparently the shine is on the 'spar' part - who knew?

So... first draftish... Let me know if I'm off base here... its more joker than green goblin. Anyway... here's a first pass at it, get your thoughts before I run down this road too far.
