I heart Virginia

on: February 17, 2007, 09:02:00 pm


.WIP.

I was bored of trying isometric stuff for Pixelator so I started this for fun. So, following Skurwy and Lackey, here's Virginia.

Heigten the forhead and move the eyes more upward.

The chin is just slightly too angular.

And I agree that the forehead needs to be heightened, but I'm not sure about the need for raising the eyes. The eyes looks about right as far as placement goes. They're at a slightly different angle than the reference, probably caused by the straight vertical line on the visible eye. I think the shadow in the middle of her face could be diffused more.

Thank you for the crits! I adjusted the forehead a bit, tell me what you think about, but didn't move the eyes upwards because I had them like that before and didn't look correct. I tried to fix their angle though.

On a sidenote, which palette should I use?

I'd love to see it finished, I don't have any critique at the moment.

Hmm, I would use the high-intensity CGA#2 variant, but it's your piece. Thinking of modernism (in terms of art), I guess it'd match its spirit the best;

alternatively the previous bright 'gray-blue-purple-black' one.

Unfortunately, I haven't read any of her books. Which one would you recommend? :)

Skurwy: Thanks! Well, I also like the high-intensity CGA#2 variant alot but, for some reason, I don't feel like it goes well with Virginia Woolf...I guess this is something I'll end up deciding just before I finish the piece, I must give it some thought.
I only read "Mrs.Dalloway" (translated too :( ) because it is the only book from her I was able to find in my parents collection. Besides, I'm too caught in Henry James and spending too much money on Cocorosie and Au Revoir Simone CD's at the moment to look for more stuff by her. Nevertheless, I found it extremely interesting, even if a little hard to understand in parts (I'm not very bright though, so that might be just me). Her mind is a bit disturbing too :sry:

EDIT:


I hope this thread isn't drifting into...forgetness?

Looks great! However i believe she needs a smaller nose, chin and larger top of the head bit.  :y:

Hmm.. I see your point, and back you up on the rather large chin, but the head seems ok to me. I might be blind though, so who knows.

Is this better, guys? I didn't mess much with the nose, I think it's fine as it is :)

EDIT:


I believe I'm done with this. About the palette, I'm not quite sure...thoughts?
