X Marks the Spot

Hey everyone finally finished my first pin-up. My galactic temptress who has now become a space pirate. I entitled the piece "X Marks the Spot".

I am quite pleased with how it turned out I think I learned a lot about where I want my style to go. Also I think It is very successful as my first ever sci-fi piece.

As always the finish was done in Corel Painter. I hope everyone likes this piece as much as I do. Expect my updates on my snake lady very soon.

HOIST THE COLORS!!!

I worked out some colors for my space pirate in Corel painter. I ended up testing out both warm and cool palettes. While I do love some areas in the cool palette, especially the purple nebulae and the turquoise glow at the bottom of the planet, I ended up choosing the warm study. The warm one gives a nice contrast against her green skin and there are areas where I find it easier to move colors around, more so than the cool palette.

I have already started the finish and it should be done by this week.

I hope everyone is enjoying the process of this piece. I really enjoyed the feedback that I have been receiving. I got a lot of great comments via Facebook.

Also I have been meaning to scan in my sketches for my other piece, but fear not it's moving along I am currently working on the final drawing.

Aye Avast! Ye Advice Be Requested.

I decided to do some more value studies for my space pirate image. And thus here they are.

There are parts in different ones that I like more than others so I am having a bit of trouble deciding which way I should go.

If you wish to share your opinion, please go right ahead and comment. Your feedback will be quite welcome.

My galactic temptress piece has changed quite a bit. I nixed the iron work-like windows and just went with a larger planet behind a moon, while she just rests on a free floating plate. I also turned the steps to give more movement to the piece.

Also, instead of just being an alien she has become a space pirate. So I added some appropriate accessories like pirate boots, and eye patch, and a Jolly Roger tattoo.

The image at the top is the finished drawing and the one at the bottom is a rough value study I did. I also have some color sketches but since the composition changed so much I basically had to scrap them and start over. However, they did help give me some ideas of where I want my palette to go. I should have the color sketch uploaded soon.

I have also been working on my serpent mistress piece and will scan in some sketches of it soon.

That is all for now.
