I finished a new fan art this afternoon...

Shiva's portrait

With watercolour, and a little of watercolour pencil, and coppered and golden pencil.

I just left the same natured comment on Ringos recent thread. Hahaha...but it would defenatly be better for you to stray from what you see in the game and do a different sort of portrait, maybe make your own rendition of Shiva (one not in the games). Basically what you are doing, to me, says that you can look at a picture and draw what you see. While that is fine and dandy, it would be a better exersize to use your creativity to the fullest.

As for technique goes; lines are stale and boring in some places. I am not digging the nearly monochromatic blue. If you are going to use blue...mix in some other colors for some sort of temperature variation. It is a very cold painting, but most things have varations of warmer colors and cooler colors (even if it is Shiva). If you want to stick to the monochrome...add contrast with darker colors and that hair is a beast...I suggest you spend more time on it.

And something I learned from countless classes in this. Never use white like that. You are layering it on top of stuff that is already there. Have patience and leave the white of the paper...it is a lot more pleasing and professional looking.

I know this amazing watercolor artist, he does really good work with using lights in watercolor. And his hair is very good too. Take some pointers from his artwork smile.gif His name is Steve Hanks...and he is amazing http://www.artifactsgallery.com/art.asp?%21=A&ID=640

Thanks for comments !

Burrgle > thanks for advices (althought I'm not sure to understand all of them, my English skills are quite basics).

In fact I paint with a drawing teacher's advices. I go to a art school.
And what you see here is not the real picture. It's a photo, I took it with my cell phone, then the quality is rather faded.
