The Girl In The Swamp by Kylogram The Girl In The Swamp by Kylogram
I was sifting through my old drawings and found two drawings of a girl in a swamp, wielding a sword.

I combined the best part of each drawing (one had a better pose and composition, the other had a better sword and clothing) This is the result, and I am pretty pleased with myself.

Thanks!

I used Paint Tool Sai's "Rough Round 1" brush, with a few customized settings...

This is brilliant! A great painterly technique and good composition. However, if I may offer a small constructive criticism. Her face feels too small for her body, perhaps also her head (although thats not too visible under the mass of hair). Heres something to remember, something Leonardo Da Vinci taught:

The face is roughly the same size as a spread out hand.

If you opened your hand (like a high five) and put it to your facem, you'll notice that this is true, its about the same size. In this painting her face is the same size as her closed fist, far too small!

I hope this helps, otherwise its a fantastic piece!

Yeah, I noticed that too, but by the time I did, I couldn't see any quick fixes... I may come back and try to fix it in the future, but maybe not...

Its the little details on her gloves against the broad strokes of her dress that I like best. Well that and her littleexpressive face. She might be struggling to hold that massive sword up, but you take one step closer and she'll hack off your arm.
Awesome.

One thing I've been told many times before, one thing that many famous illustrators have mastered, is that the most important parts of the figure are the face and hands, they are the parts that are the most expressive and require the most detail. Everything else can be vague and brushy, so long as the face and hands are sharp.
