SWTOR - Umbra by luniara SWTOR - Umbra by luniara
Not as good as my previous entry it seems. I spent a lot of time on this one too, but... I guess the on and off again I did on this made it's mark. The pale skin tone on top of the grayscale I shaded with just wasn't wanting to cooperate.
All done in Photoshop with a tablet.

Ah well, it's still something to ease my mind this week, right? Yeeeah, what news.

Bleh! Well, here's my Jedi-Sith Luniara. Wishing I did her hair down instead of tied back.

I know her chin tattoo looks like a goatee, I just can't seem to part with it.

Remember, even a short comment is a good comment:

Actually, I really like her hair tied back. :D Sort of loose, but controlled, so it blows epically in the wind but doesn't fly in her face. :)

I like her hair tied back, gives a sense that she's the practical type. XD Love her face. And I didn't think it was a goatee at all. ^^

I actually really like her tattoo goatee. It adds a note of elegant androgyny.

Hm I find that making a slight light on tattoos really helps to put them into 3D ^^
I think thats what might make you puzzle about that one ;P

Anyways, I really like the hair :D Mmm perhaps it would look better down, but I like the warrior feel to the tied back variant ;)
You draw hair really well :D I like it ^^

She is simply lovely, such gorgeous eyes. Nice job handling all that grey as well, I think it would be easy for details to get lost in that, but you did a beautiful job.

Yea I thought it was a goatee! Its strange to adjust my mind to make it a tattoo!! Maybe if it was a different color? or lighter?

It really DOES look like a goatee. I clicked the link because I thought this chick was some neat circus jedi.
Maybe if you incorporate that tattoo in other parts of her face, or fade it a bit, it would be more recognizable as a face marking?

You know when I was looking at the thumbnail for this picture I thought she was wearing a hat, I have to say you've given her a rather strong face I like the thick eyebrows and the Tattoo just draws your eye's up.

I still don't think it looks like a goatee until it's commented on, and even then not very much. I love her design, and you shouldn't change it if its what you want. Screw everyone else. :P

Just a little suggestion, it kinda looks like she has a goatee on her chin from a distance. Perhaps if you changed the colour to a pale silver/blue like her eyes?
Love it nonetheless :la: Her eyes are amazing and very intimidating! Brilliant tonal work too! :woohoo:

You may not like it, but I still think it looks pretty damn good. I'm envious of the way you draw/color hair! Even tied up it still manages to be very interesting to look at, very dynamic. :D

Also, obligatory YAY SITH!

At first I thought she had a beard, but when I looked at the picture itself I realized it's paint/tattoo, nevertheless I still like the picture, especially her eyes ans hair.

Wow, Mel! This is AMAZING!! I could never in my life draw a human as good as yours, I'm still learning, though.
And the painting style that you used is just jaw-dropping~ I love it! :D The positioning is awesome, too!

By any chance, can you draw animals? If so, would it be alright if I could ask you to draw my wolf character "Maadna"? It would be nice to see my Maadna drawn with your awesome art skills. If you can't, that's alright. ^__^

Again, I just simply looooove this amazing piece of yours here. You're super talented!!~
