    Well, stylised the hair like the rest of the drawing. changed the face a bit and toned down the color a bit. Lets see, should be done now, only thing left is uploading a highres version i guess!

    Looks pretty good to me. The only criticisms I could offer are that the back leg seems a little longer than the front to me, and she looks more like a he to me. Still, it's pretty impressive. :)
    ...and if you disagree with me, you're probably <insert random ad hominem attack here>.

    Looks good!

    Kinda wish you didin't draw it with CE wings though, I personally find them out of place on any of the 5 heros (except like, maybe t15 demon hunter)
  • #4
    Yup, very nice, tough it does not have palms/fingers visible at all which looks quite funny (show a pinky at least :)). She's also got hit her back pretty badly with multiple spears.

    You didn't know they were created especially for T15 DH :D She will look so so so sexy with them and shadow power combined

    Personnaly i think the legs should be about right, might be a matter of (lack of)coloring and perspective that makes it weird now, as i havnt really shaded much. I do agree with the He part tho, but i dunno wether to make it too feminine or not, as the original is rather square faced too! Itll be alot better once i detail the eyes and lips i guess

    Well, im not gonna do an ugly copy of the CE wings, rather something of my own creation. ie; a mix between tyreals and CE wings mebbe, can always put it on a layer and just toggle it off ;)

    I really like it, if you don't mind me saying though I liked it better before the color.

    Not sure I like the baggy pants.

    Well, i always have the same. It really only gets better once you recoler and shade it properly. This is just a pretty raw color choosing. Most even change troughout the detailing. I dont usually like photoshop sketches tho, so if i try to get a finished black/white drawing id rather do pencil!

    As example the clothing gets alot better after going over it once; im a pretty chaotic drawer, i go over my drawing like a dozen of times until is as dark as i want it to be.

    I can always make a pantless version for you after im done ;)

    Yeah that one is looking much better. Especially around the stomach/hip/crotch area funnily enough.

    What's wrong with you?

    First you think I'm suggesting she wear no pants, then you think I'm suggesting she wear jeans. Like, there's no middle ground with you is there? You infer strange things from my suggestions so I'm going to stop paying attention and commenting on your artwork.
  • #14
    Well im joking, havnt you noticed?

    You dont _have_ to comment but its appreciated that you do.I really do appreciate the feedback, but that doesnt mean i feel the same about it. I plan to stick with baggy pants for now. I was serious about the 'no pants' in the sense it would expose her upper legs (not like bare naked) and might actually try an alternative version of it. But its nice that you jump to conclusions so quick.

    She does have fingers fisible under/next to the fist weapon, guess you can see it better in the latest one ;p
    Not sure what you mean with the spears tho ;o
  • #16
    I think he means the wings maybe look like spear tips in her back? Not sure.
  • #17
    shrug~! still dont know wether or not to keep the wings ;(
  • #18

    You do very good work. I like the direction you went with the hair. She looks more feminine, but not over-the-top fantasy like the previous version. I think I like it better without the wings too because it's less busy, which seems more monk-like to me.

    I'm not sure I like her facial expression though. It's just not compelling. Her weapons are bloody, so maybe grim determination would work. Or possibly anger if you want to play against type. Calm serenity just doesn't feel right to me for some reason, even though it fits the monk conceptually.

    Thanks! :o

    About the facial expression, yeah i want to change it, but i hate doing faces :P For some reason i hate having to google faces to get a proper spacial idea of how it should look like. I pretty much draw almost everything from imagination. Guess i should really start doing it tho as its a bit handier knowing how to actually draw it realisticly ;p

    But an evil grin would prolly work the best if i would change something. Or well, manic laughter could work too ;d
    It would keep the idea of monks being pretty much calm and taking it one step further while keeping it rather 'grim' in a weird sense. Pretty much like the lore of the monk atm afaik. Laughing while killing ;x
