I’m working on this for a friend. This is her FFXI character, Aayne and she’s fighting a dancing weapon. Can anyone give me some advice on what I can do to make this look better. Thanks.
it sucks start over. Now, is it sarcasm or am I telling the truth:confused: …
but seriously though
I dont know what to tell you. I not very good with action/vs. poses. You know I didnt get any work done yesterday. Prespective was kicking my ass.
Is sword supposed to be hitting the monster?
If so have the sword thrust a downstroke. She loooks kinda frozen. And also have the monster reling a bit from the attack. Have a motion blur on the sword by adding some speed lines.
As for the sword try having a shadow of it on the ground plane. That way it’ll look like it’s floating rather than lying on the ground.
Oh yea and this is a crazy idea. But when she strikes putting the hit points in red in a computerry type font would look cool.
Other than that everything in this picture is fine.
I hope these comments have helpt.
It needs more feeling, it looks sorta still in some ways. Provide more detail on the hands, maybe on the swords shadowing a bit more, and her overall balance.
Great Picture Overall!!
Is the sword supposed to be hitting the monster, if so draw the after effect of the sword hitting. You will rarely ever see a hit make contact in drawing because the after effect is alway more dramatic.
One last note try to use a perspective where you can see so of the hero’s face.
yeah… I rushed it
origanally she was going to be blocking the sword attack. I am adding in the BG, just wanted to get the characters right first. Thanks for the help! Esp. CaptMunta. And Deon… you are a complete failure when it comes to sarcacim. Heheh… yeah still struggling with perspective myself.
