Same criticism for your Bloodborne piece applies here :)


Chiseling away at the main mass of the silhouette like before, adding a few clues; then, blocking out the shapes in the silhouette with colour, like the cloak, the trousers, scarf, etc; I resized the sprite to get the proportions closer to this artwork of Sekiro.

Hope it helps, keep it up!  :y:

Wow amazing how much more accurate yours is. Bloodborne update is coming up today or tomorrow.

You should create a new image online when you post updates. When you overwrite the original, one of two things happen: either I get served a cached version of the original image, so I can't see your progress, or the original post is updated with the latest version. So, er, I can't see your progress.

That aside, I really like this. The pose is dynamic, the outlines are crisp. Huge improvement IMO.

Maybe a touch more facial definition would be nice. There might be a couple of places where a shadow could go. I'm nitpicking.

Love the more dynamic pose! It looks a lot better :y:
I would suggest a highlight colour for each material, and I'd say your piece will be more or less finished. You can also add small details like scuffs, tears or wear to make the clothes more detailed. I would make the mouth and the nose's outline a bit darker, and you're good.

Very encouraging progress and looking forward to more! ;D

"I would suggest a highlight colour for each material"

Oh yeah! Add in a few specular highlights as well. I want the metal parts to GLINT. :)

Messed around with the face but it depends on the direction you want to take it.
The scarf gets a stronger silhouette, ditto Chris2Balls. Fabric or thin things like this tend to bend and show both sides so it also gets this.
Worth looking up some cloth ref as well. We wanna see them folds.
