Personal - Then I Saw Her Face by TwilightSaint Personal - Then I Saw Her Face by TwilightSaint
~~~

'...Now I'm a believer!' :D

No, no girlfriends for Abdulaziz. >.< He's too young and dippy and cute. Hunzullah would not approve. *stuffy Huzn face*

Skeezit butt, hehehe. *RPG'd*

And LOOK at that shading. Check it out! *flexes RPG* I feel so fancy~ Well, three pieces and another style down? Two days? What is this, some kind of record?

Like the last one I submitted, cell-/gradient-shading with ballpoint pen sketch lines...originally was going to soft-shade, this, but, yep. B) I'm feeling it. And my sketch lines are perfectly flexible - soft enough for soft-shading, crisp enough for hard-shading. :D

I'm letting out all my artistic build-up, guys, and also prepping for when I go to Israel. :D Since I'm going to be...digging for stuff, and trolling Templar tunnels and Salah ad-Din street. Most likely not drawing. :P I'll try, I really will. However, I can only imagine how intense an experience that's going to be, how inspired I'll be, and how my art will change with it... I'm excited. For a million reasons and more. :3

As before, feel free to pick/critique the shading as you see fit.

Enjoy!
Art/Abdulaziz (c) me

It's rare that I see a portrait of a dragon's back! I really love this piece though. With such beautiful wings and delicate features on the back of her head, I'm filled with desire to see what she looks like when she turns around.

actually, I'd have to agree with :iconwatergirl117:. I mistook the lighting for markings too. maybe if you made the shadows the same as the lighting, it might look better. but it seems like you're still kinda shading in your other style, and then highlighting in this new one. it comes off as a bit confusing. (I hope I'm not coming across as rude. the image itself is awesome! it takes skill to draw a dragon from behind, and I'm pretty jealous!)

I'm not sure where you're seeing that the highlights look like markings. :? And both the shading and highlights are done in the blue of the lighting/background. And I am actually using the new techniques for shading as I use for the highlights - maybe it's not as noticeable because I need to up the contrast...? *ponders* Thanks!

i would just say add a little more contast so that you can notice the lighting and shading more. it seems a little to light in my opinion. that or im seeing the lighting and misstaking them as markings :/ which then means maybe some bluring would help.
other than that, keep up the awesome work!

Hmm, okay - I actually thought the contrast might've been too high. XD I'll play around with that in my next piece. ^^ Thanks!

and it may be. like i said, maybe some of what i am seeing looks like coloring of the skin instead of lighting because the contrast is too high.
and your welcome :)
