The City by Hideyoshi The City by Hideyoshi
No, it's not a city, it's a character :)
A CHOW topic, we had to interpret any city we liked as a character.
I went with Shanghai, chaotic tech overload or something like that :D

Not too happy with certain things here, I think I give up too quickly or I am not trying hard enough.. :/
In the beginning I felt extremely rusty and nothing was going very well but in the end it was still kinda fun to paint :)
Approx. 3.5h, without ref.
Here's a few WIPs and a close-up (of the messed up face :P )

I really like the overall atmosphere of the scenery, the light, this robotic suitcase-whatever of her :-) It feels as if there is a bigger story behind.
You said, that is was a task or something. Was it a for a customer or are you studying concept design/art? If yes, WHERE??? :-) I'm looking for a good school, especially around germany.

That is some crazy tech work on her suit. And, what the heck is she carrying? A futuristic purse? :lol:

On another note, your avatar with a hat just looks so out of place, hahaha.

Nize!
Die Tonwerte sind gut gelungen, also die blauen Schatten und das Licht... die Pose gefällt mir auch.
Als Shanghai bräuchte die gute aber noch ein paar Neonlichter am Anzug, eh? Die Idee mit diesem tragbaren device ist auch cool, nur isses noch etwas zu odd-shaped (man ich hau wieder mit Anglizismen um mich..) würd´ich sagen... mehr Kanten, Schläuche, Kabel! Blame!-´isher machen....! =)

ja ich wollts nicht zu sehr an Cibo erinnern lassen :P
ich find selbst das rendering hier ziemlich schwach um ehrlich zu sein :/ Mann, mit charas tu ich mich unglaublich schwer :(

:iconblueroguevyse:
BlueRogueVyse Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Jaa, das kann ich voll verstehen.
Sind ehrlich zwei Welten, Charas und Enviros. Bin grade an ein paar Charakteren für´n Sci-fi mmorpg, dafür hab ich PS vorerst ruhen lassen und erstmal ´n dutzend kleine Figürchen aufs Papier gekritzelt, geht einfach leichter von der Hand.
Mir fällts bei Charakteren viel leichter mit gezeichneten Linien zu arbeiten statt wie du hier direkt mit color block-in. Da hat man finde ich schon einen feste 'Gestalt' mit der man dann weiterarbeiten kann, und muss sich nicht gleichzeitig um Form+Farbe kümmern. Die Outlines kann man zum Schluss ja immer noch auflösen wenn´s ans colorn/rendern geht.

:iconhideyoshi:
Hideyoshi Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
ja, bei mir ist das so, dass mein lighting immer deutlich besser wird, wenn ich ohne lineart arbeite. Linien zu colorieren ist zwar fürs design sehr gut, aber ich komm nie wirklich gut mit klar. Oder ich brauch noch etwas Übung. Was bei mir allerdings immer ziemlich gut funktioniert ist, wenn ich schon einen fertigen Hintergrund habe und dann lineart charas auf ner neuen Ebene zeichne. Die lassen sich dann immer akkurat colorieren und fügen sich gut ins Bild ein :)

BlueRogueVyse Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Hmm, ich versuch mich auch gerade eher an losen Outlines mit ungezwungend aber ordentlich wirkender colo, und nicht an diesen sauberen Illustrationen wie zB amerikanische Comics etc.
Tu ich mich aber auch noch schwer mit^^´

Jo das stimmt, wobei solche Figuren natürlich viel kleiner und undetaillierter sind, und da die ja richtig mit der Umgebung interagieren und nicht nur posieren wirkt das alles schon automatisch viel stimmiger..... würd ich mal annehmen.
