Character Portrait finished

And Thou I present:

Ji'Arrwen, a khajiit form Khenarti's Roost.
Ji’Arrwen if Khenarti’s Roost.

Fun: materials, shadows on the face and hair. The little blue medallion on her neck.
Difficulties: metals, cuirass, brown stripe of the pendant; shadowing and highlights of her eyes. Where stop with pursuing realistic shadows, where to leave the cartoon-like qualities? I made some decisions and I’m looking forward to revising them in the future, when I acquire more skills.

I am very pleasantly surprised with the end result! It is crusial for me to like my finished art even a bit, because I find it hard to continue drawing if I see how bad the drawing is. Not this time!

Thanks to this project I gained even more confidence in digital drawing. Keep fingers crossed – there is so much more to learn! 🙂

Pixelart Doggo Animation

Two resolutions, two different styles.

This is 16×16 pixels, the movement captured in less then 6 frames. I read somewhere, that an animated, live object needs to me moving almost all the time, even in small details, to look good and, well, alive.

That is 32×32: a little bit more detail allowed. I really had fun with the spooked, growling dog: the simple three additional pixels on his back really makes the appearance of fur bristling on its back.
