Cocoa Isis by tincek-marincek Cocoa Isis by tincek-marincek
This is my commission drawing for *jericawinters, because she won at ~Atomic-Sheep's contest Show your hero and this is her character Cocoa Isis.

Something about her: Cocoa Isis a former head chef of a High Lord of ancient Egypt who is also known as Apocalypse, a human-mutant who found alien technology and turned himself into an immortal cyborg. Apocalypse is a powerful villain character created by Marvel Comics. (description written by *jericawinters)

And I did forest again...I think I like to draw nature. And I drew on my sketch again, because I didn't like to draw everything from the beginning. It's easier like that. I blurred background a little, because I thought that it would look better and drawing would have more depth, it looks more realistic like that. :D

:bulletyellow: Adobe Photoshop CS5
:bulletyellow: tablet Genius G-pen M609X
:bulletyellow: original size is 5506 x 7100 px
:bulletyellow: I had 93 layers
:bulletyellow: I drew this 17 hours

Nice work, I quite like the clear appearance of this image. You have some very strong lines and the tilted horizon adds a lot of danymism to the painting. The slightly haunted and watchful look in the girl comes well across, and I like the leaves on the floor a lot, they just seem very natural.
Just a few minor things, if I may...The focus of the painting should be the girl's face, but I do find myself looking at the thick stump right on the left of her quite often. Its detail is fighting with the figure a bit. Also, it seems rather thin, which makes me think, that if all the tree was like that, it would collapse rather quickly :D I would instead prefer a bit more detail on the staff, actually. Nothing big, just a grip or some sort of leather band wrapped around part of it, to indicate where it's being held. Right now it looks a bit simple, almost like a toy. Obviously it's not the focus of the piece and shouldn't be, but this tiny bit of additional visual interest at the bottom would be nice, I think.
One last thing...I see that you have a thin line of light around most of the roots and various parts of the tree...and I think it might be a better idea to be more sparing with these highlights. The tree is rough and uneven and light will not reflect like that everywhere on its rim...try to just dot the highlights here and there to give the piece some accents, then they will be even more effective :nod:

But otherwise good work. There is a lot of depth in it and you created a belivable space in which the figure sits really well :nod:

Wow, this is great, I love it. I saved this to my folder with images that give me inspiration for my work. The shards flying off her cloak in the shape of birds are fabulous. A perfect fit for a project I'm working on. I think the fantasy elements and mood in this piece are very subtle and pleasantly received. It's got a hint of magic and traces of emotional depth. She's got this delicate vulnerability that's so appealing. Your line work is nice, showing your talent in the details where you've given them and showing your artistic consideration in the areas where you haven't, such as the things that are sharp and the things that are blurred, her foot disappearing beneath the fold of her scarf saving you the trouble of drawing that tricky appendage (maybe you could have put in just a bit more shape in the appearance of the cloth to sell the placement there). Based off this example, I think there's still a lot of growth you can achieve as an artist, but you are well on your way towards it, especially seen through the choices you've made here.

Beautiful! Especially the way in which the woman "shatters" into something I'm not sure I can describe or understand.
