Troll Rogue: WIP by Anamaris Troll Rogue: WIP by Anamaris
I have no idea what to do with him anymore. =/
I still need to add details to some of the accessories and what not, but other than that. I dunno...


Inspired by a comment made by :iconcalaverita:

She commented on how trolls might not be able to kiss, but they might lick. So I imagined them having KISS like tongues. XD

I want to finish this so bad, but school comes first. =/

I'll try to finish the lineart this weekend and hopefully start coloring.

Edit: Well, still a few details and textures here and there. This is probably the most layers I've ever used. D=

Does anyone have suggestions for the background?

All right, in light of your recent journal, I wanted to attempt to give you a decent critique of this. I know it's a WIP so my comments might certainly pertain to things you already intend to fix and that's fine but I can only work with what I see :D Contrary to popular belief, I cannot read people's minds... yet. Your skills are far superior to mine so please take my humble suggestions as you will.

The only real issues I see with this (at this point) are that some of the yellow areas look a little flat, namely on his belt. Also, the shadows look a little weak. I'm not entirely sure where the light source is coming from in this picture and this is a problem that I really have in my own artworks which is why I noticed it. I'm terribly inconsistent with my shadows. You've got good shadows along the curved edges of things but in the places that are behind and underneath, there should be heavier shadows. I am talking specifically about his arm that is partly hidden and underneath his chin. I think those areas would have stronger shadows.

I absolutely love the outfit design, I'm awful with designing clothing and I think it is my biggest failing. As always, your lines are superb. The details on the weapons, tusks and spikes are fantastic. As the owner of a KISS-like tongue myself, I applaud the tongue. It looks great and I often wondered how trolls would kiss with those wicked tusks and long noses in the way. All in all, another great piece, Ana.
What do you think?

wow this is looking great! i love the details and the textures on this. it looks fantastic!
the only thing i would suggest is darkening the body to show that it's further back from the arms. it looks a little flat, so by doing that i think it will put some depth into the troll. also by adding some sharper highlights on his tusk would bring it out forward more. but otherwise this is freaking awesome! :D

Those are great suggestions and will most definitely be addressing those. Especially the tusks, that's a really good idea. Thanks so much! =)

For a WIP it's beautiful. I absolutely love it haha!

Shading, colouring, perspective = love. The first Critique I completely agree with, seems super fair :p

Can't wait to see the finished version.

BG? Eh, I think it'd be cute/funny to see him in a PVP/BG area hehe

I think the bg has been the hardest thing for me to deal with. I honestly have tried about 6 to 8 different backgrounds and either it seems too heavy or the colors aren't right, or just the area I chose didn't seem to be "right", ya know. Like, why would a rogue with obvious not so good intentions be there?

Ah I see, then why not just do one colours with different shades? Might be easier for you and it might up looking really good.

hen you use the pen tool in PS right click the line you created and select brush stroke. Make sure you select the brush you would like the stroke to be before hand. Remember that depending on the brush style that is how the line will render out.

For some reason, a WoW style stripp club comes to mind. O_O XD

Another background that comes to mind is that of the Barrens.

I cannot tell much bout suggestions since I can barely see the blue pencils. If ya can ink it, I could tell you a bit more bout what it could need ( I am blinded D= )

I'll keep my eyes on your work O0O
