Actually I have something to say about your work and heck it seems I'm on the Rogue spin throughout the DA, who would have thought it?
Anywho this might be an older pic but dammit to the DA I can't take eyes off this beauty or this sleek style for that matter, let's continue on shall we?
Right from the start its plain to see you got a style of your own going for you RDOWN. Love everything about how Rogue looks her being its much less like the comic book and something of your own. Granted you have great anatomy and even smoother lines that make up that pretty face but even then do quite well to stay true to her character and everything that makes her looks count.
Granted I won't lie saying that the eyes shall wander to her ample chest, but since when has Rogue NOT been awesome eye candy? But moving on you do amazingly well with this quick shot of her and just love the very good focus on her face and the way she's posed. It has that sense of pride with the way she has her hands on her side and even more that look in her eyes just looking into the future or something corny with being positive about herself.
Either way you slice it though, you don't delay either on when it comes your effects and more then ever your coloring is just such epic justice to make this pic.....even more EPIC! When looking closer I see really rich detailing on the skin with the way you shade and tone it to better show the build of the body like the muscles on the forearms, the slight hint of the bones coming from her neck to even the stomach and belly button hint there, lol. But its neat that you even more flip the shading to the outlining effect like I see on the black gloves or go really cel shading on the green shirt with the way the light hits it and reflects upon the breasts or shows the lovely way the fabric hugs the skin.
Best of all remains her face and I really do mean that. Along with her face having a much newer look to it, I find the very iconic parts of her still being very true. The dim look of eyes to show that still infamous gothy nature to her, the ominous charm of the green coming from those eyes and the work done to illustrate the depth of her. By that I mean actually showing the way the hair forms out with threading each and every part of her it to show a much more streamlined and still spiky nature to it all. And I have no idea why but I just adore short haircuts on ladies and this is no exception. o0o
Could well go on at this point but already you should be aware of your raw and amazing talent you have RDOWN, so please, please, please keep up the brilliant artwork your able to create, I can't stress that enough.
