Commission: Merkabah by jocarra Commission: Merkabah by jocarra
Another port commission, this time of a particularly cool fellow named Merkabah, a resurrected mage of sorts with a construct body. He's giving you a "I see what you did there!" look, it would seem ;P

~4 hours Adobe Photoshop CS3.

he seems so innocent but powerful the same time. his eyes tell stories of shyness while his body shows all the strength and reliability

*nods* The client wanted him to appear magical and powerful, but also sort of grandfatherly and gentle. Thank you!

Very strong contrast X_X client has a very brightly colored character.

Heh, yup! "Pristine snow white" was what I was aiming for.

I really like the hair, or mane, on this. The shading is great and it looks very realistic.

There's so much white in the picture that the deep purple mane sort of overwhelms it all, making it feel rather washed out. It feels like the rest of the image needs more contrast to be able to compete. I mean, I get that he's supposed to be white, but it might have helped the if the background defined his figure a little better, right now he looks like a wampa. A wampa with purkle hair.

XD D'oh! Well, I appreciate your honesty. He struck me as a character that's supposed to be a "pristine snow white" - so it somehow looked wrong to have any more grey or anything in there.

You're welcome, I hope it didn't come across as too critical. Part of it is that I have bad eyes, so too much white is just too much. :/ My opinion, for what it's worth, remember how on Hoth they had more colors than just white? They had blue ice, and dark rocky outcroppings, and stuff to add character to the blank whiteness. I don't think a snowy cliff would really ruin the pristine look of the picture, and it would make the character stand out more. Actually, to me, a stark, snowy cliff would make it look even more pristine, right now the background is just sort of...bland, it doesn't really add any personality.

Nah, it was totally fine :)

*chuckles* Well, I'm sorry to say but I don't think I can be bothered to do anything about the background. I kinda like it, and the client was fine with it - you can try bugging her to bug me to change it, though XD

Hey, I don't care enough to bug anyone about it, I'm just sharing. XP The customer's always right, I'm not going to risk antagonizing a woman that currently has no reason to hate me. ;p
