Thank you~

This isn't really based directly off of Greek mythology though. ^^; While minotaurs are based off of Greek myth, Vanity is actually based off of the same lore that Alistar, another LoL champion, was stemmed from. He is a minotaur in the sense that he is a cow-man, but I don't think his story is based off of Greek myth. Vanity is based off of Alistar's people rather than history in the real world. o vo

Leagues needs more pretty champs, I say! I love the art, it's wonderfully clean and ethereal. It's too bad people keep mentioning Janna!

Thank you! Personally, I think Syndra and Nami were both very pretty, and Diana is pretty in a mean sort of way.

Haha, they were. And are. But if you look at my match history, it's all female champs. xDD Maybe there should be some more pretty BOYS. xD

Thank you~ It's too bad that she doesn't follow good meta though. She's a champion that gives other champions crits.

why u cut her foot?
Reply

Nyanfood Featured By Owner May 30, 2012   Digital Artist
For compositional purposes. Originally it was a larger picture and I wanted a close-shot foreground, meaning that the foot needed to be obscured by an even closer object (moss-covered rock.) But then the stream in the background was too annoying so I just cropped the larger picture down to the smaller one... and since the rock looked out of place, no foot.

really? I don't know... I can never get colors and compositions as beautiful as yours... still have a lot of stuff to learn from your arts XD

I'm happy to hear that!

As for the colors, I noticed that you start coloring with black and white and then work under or over it with blending (correct me if I'm wrong.) I make it a point to never use black and rarely use true 'white' when I'm drawing because those two colors make colors 'dull.' Instead, I use opposite colors for shading and bright colors for lighting. So like... you notice a lot of my shadows on skin are purple, or if something's green, the shadow's red or purple. I use a color for lighting (on skin, it's often yellow, and sometimes blue depending on the lighting color.

It's a good idea to mark out the shadows. I personally usually suck at lighting whereas you manipulate it so well. But try not to do it in black and whites if you can.

Also, at the very end, I cheat by using vibrance adjustment. >:D

I <3 your suggestions XD

I do use black a lot... I realize that I color pure black for shadows often... which is horrible... T_T... I also like the use pure white for extreme light situations... of course... makes the picture boring... I guess...><... I use to study a lot (self study) on techniques and neglects color theory and compositions... so hahaha... I am horrible at these stuff... still have so much room for improvement. So I am glad I get to talk to ppl about it XD

Like you said, I do black and white, since I can't see the shade in color... I don't know if I can abandon it (probably not until I get better with color theory) but I do a lot of layers on the black and white picture... so next time, I will keep what you said in mind ^^

ya.. I use adjustments too XD

What are the tools do you use to draw?

I usually just use the basic brushes in photoshop for most of the drawing. I use a size-pressure brush (turn thick or thin) to do hard lining, base color, and cellshade. I use a flow-pressure brush (fade in and out) for painting, and I just adjust for opacity and flow in the drop-down menus for brushes. Brushes might be one of my biggest weaknesses. For realistic skin, I use soft brush. For more texture, I use hard brush. You notice a lot of my pictures have no interesting texture. That's cause my brushes are the same. I need to make some of my own paint brushes these days... ; ^;

As for using shade color, why don't you try it with a different color to do your shading instead? Like... the same as the darkest color in the background? I like to paint on a gray-purple background so I just do a darker variation of the gray-purple as shading. If you do all your shading in purple or dull red, that might enhance your drawings. -nodnod-

ah... I should do that... should work from shadow to light... but I do have bad habits where I tend to add black into the shade areas... should stop myself from doing that... lol

You should find new blushes for your work, it will make drawing much much easier... but texture brushes are hard to come by sometimes... T_T

I plan to make some of my own, actually. Also, I do work from light to dark as well as dark to light. I just don't use black as the shadow. I usually use purple. I don't know what will work out for you, but I'm sure you'll find a trick. :D

People have been telling me that a lot. I've actually been trying really hard to make her look not like Janna... = u=;;;

I think it's the Grecian dresses. Janna has that weird bustier-and-skirt thing that looks really similar. ; ^; -wants to be original too-

Oh wow! I love the Persephone concept in this. I haven't played LoL (surprisingly) but I am quickling becoming a fan of it's artwork. I'unno why, but she kinda reminds me of Ein.

It's the woodlandiness... heehee, and the green. Eins isn't nearly as playful as Vanity is but they can both call trees out of the ground and kill peeps.
