atropos by hakubaikou atropos by hakubaikou
Just another costume idea. I feel like I haven't done a chick-in-a-gown pic in a while. You should be able to see some texture on her dress. If it just looks black, then your monitor is set darker than mine. :p

The usual. Start to finish in photoshop. No refs on this one.

Hurrah for pictures of the Fates! Or, a fate, at least.

I think at this rate I'm going to fave your entire gallery. Incredible. :D

Wonderful work with the web and the background :D I really love it. As for the woman, I feel like her hands are a little too big. Beside that it looks awesome :nod:

Thanks very much, Little-Vampire. :)

Ugh, yeah, I have yet to figure out how to exaggerate features in a subtle way, and yet keep it from looking like a mistake. It's easy to make bold exaggerations, but I haven't figured out how to do subtle ones just yet. :p

well I can assure you that you've did it much better than how I would be able to... So for me it's already awesome, but I know artists wants to be perfect so all I can tell you is, go on like this and you'll manage to make it look even better :nod:

OOoo very nice! YOu should do more with long gowns >w<!
Only critique really would be her hips....they seem a bit large for her body overall. Especially on the side with her hand holding the erm...mini scythe? OUtside of that, spiffin'! :D

:iconhakubaikou:
hakubaikou Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2008
Yeah, I think the gold thread from her shoulder to her hip doesn't help any either. Makes it look as if that's the edge of the dress. Might have helped to put that on the opposite side. :p

Thanks! :) Glad you liked it overall.

One of the three fates? She looks a bit celtic ... maybe ... the web is a nice element in this.
Reply
:iconhakubaikou:
hakubaikou Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2008
Yup, one of the fates. I have no idea what she's supposed to be, but I do know she doesn't look Greek even though it's from Greek mythology. :p

Thanks!

Beautiful dress, and pretty much everything.
It looks like she's in the underdark...Menzoberranzen the underground home of the drow. And if such is the case, she's probably going to wreck havoc on that web. :P
Feel free to disregard my drow induced comment...I've been getting involved in Drow Roleplaying lately on gaia.
I have to say, your artwork is always spectacular.

I'm afraid I've never read any books about drow, although I do know what they are. And hey, if this pic makes you think about them, that's fine by me. ^_^

Why are you so amazing? o_O I've been adoring your artwork since like... 2003 on Gaia. I wish I had the patience to sit down and work on my artistic skills. That, and my tablet pen broke. ;_;

You've been watching my art for 5 years? :omg: Wow, thanks! I'm glad you're not sick of it by now. ^_^

Aww, sorry about your tablet pen. Is it a new enough model? Can you get a replacement for it?

It's an Intuos... I can get a replacement, but I haven't gotten the money for one yet. Stupid money... such a hindrance. <.< >.> Keep up the awesome work with your art. <3
