Nimina by Rayn3ll Nimina by Rayn3ll
For :iconlajoliefille:. It's her Wold of Warcraft character, Nimina, a blood elf warlock. I was somewhat inspired by Marta Dahlig's . But of course, she's good, and I suck. :(

The shading was horrible to do and required continuous adjustment. I wanted the orb to be the primary light source but I did not want it to be too strong. I had Artist 3D Pose Tool to help me but I still had to spend some time posing in front of the mirror with my iPad as the only light source. And I tried to make the eyes glow; hope I did OK without using any reference there.

Other references: orb by :icontiky2010: (used with permission) and hands by :iconmostlyguystock:

Anyway, I hope :iconlajoliefille: likes it and will not yell at me for destroying her OC. :fear:

Done with Photoshop CS6 and Wacom Intuos4 tablet. I've suspended use of Corel Painter 12 for now because I really suck at it.

I think you're being a bit hard on yourself this time; there's a lot of things here that look really good :)

The eye glow is subtle yet noticeable, and I like the fact that the white of the eye is glowing as well instead of just the pupils. The brooch looks great, you always manage to nail those little details perfectly. The orb has a very colorful and glowy look, while all the detail is very clear. And reference or not, the hands are great. :)

Thanks. But ugh, I just think I could have done better. Several things went wrong: I merged the bg layer to the figure too early so when I wanted to change the background to give more detail and depth, it was either live with it or redo from scratch. Le sigh.
