MOONRISE by hostage-fiver MOONRISE by hostage-fiver
[EDIT I won 5th place :wow: :heart:]

[EDIT Fixed up the shading with suggestions from ~yanikaRed.
Hope it's better now!]


This is my entry for =Zeamay's contest, to draw Zheya, her OC!

She has a pretty swish design!
Of course, I once again decided to go for the dynamic lighting, and I believe it has worked much better this time, although it took several attempts.
I decided on a purple moon for the background; she is, after all, involved in dreams and I think that hints at the fact nicely.

Hope you like it! :heart:

Zheya belongs to :iconzeamay:
Art by me!

*eats the lovely glowy purple moon*
I really love the lighting on this one, it's very dramatic, and very well done.

I was really proud of this one when I drew it, and still, it's one of the few of my older works I can still look at without completely cringing. I'm very tempted to redo this one though, just to see if I can handle the lighting any better now :'D :heart:

good job on all those shadows, you're a bit off on anatomy, but know what - who cares? :D it's really good

Thanks, but... I care! And just saying "it's a bit off" doesn't really help :/

in that case - there should be more lines/stretches in her mid-section, it's kind of an awkward position and there should be more definition (I guess that's not really anatomy, but there), the way it is right now looks like two different pictures morphed together, if that makes any sense... ooh I know what it is - the shadow shouldn't be so flat and even on her belly, you have your lines in the right places but not the shading. The fold on her front buttox (for a lack of better word) shouldn't be there when a woman's in that position, there's no crease there, just a smooth curve from where the butt ends and leg begins. Is that better? :)

Ah, I see what you mean! When you stare at a picture for so long when drawing everything just tends to melt together and stuff gets missed :'D There's not really a lot I can do about the position being awkward without redoing the whole thing, but I will try and rework the shading :3
Thank you!

oh no, no need to change the position, the best ones are often awkward, fixing the shading should do the trick. good luck on it, it really is an excellent piece!

ps. - congrats on your second place on OC-Challenge, it's well deserved
