świetna praca, podobnie wyobrażałam sobie Ciri w bandzie Szczurów, to moja ulubiona postać zaraz po Jaskrze :D

Dziękuję :hug: Na mój gust Jaskier jest troszkę za bardzo kobieciarzem, ale też go dość lubię :D a wątek Szczurów ogólnie to jeden z moich ulubionych w całej serii :3

Tam gdzie jest Jaskier zawsze dzieje się coś ciekawego, jest chyba najbardziej komiczną postacią, chociaż czasem potrafi być poważny :) A co do wątku Szczurów to na początku im współczułam.

Dawno temu, kiedy pierwszy raz czytałam Wiedźmina, byłam absolutnie zachwycona Szczurami, ich postawa chyba odpowiadała mojemu ówczesnemu buntowi przeciwko wszystkiemu i pragnieniu absolutnej wolności. Zresztą wiecznie mam sentyment do skrzywdzonych złoczyńców. ;-;
O tak, z Jaskrem bywa zabawnie. :D Chociaż zawsze było mi go żal, kiedy przez lekkomyślność pakował się w jakieś kłopoty. :c

Such an awesome game series, and your artwork is very beautiful.  :)  Really love the detail throughout and especially the soft lighting effect you created.

Oh wow she's so beautiful! :D

quick question: did you paint this in greyscale and then add color did you stick with just color the whole way?
Reply
:iconelvanlin:
Elvanlin Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sorry for the late reply :( I painted in grayscale, it's a lot easier to get values right like this :3

Oh don't worry. It's all right ^^

Ah I see. :) What layer options/properties (I forget what it's called, but it's how you adjust the layer to give it a different look such as Overlay, hard light, soft light, etc :P) did you use to get your skin tone?

Elvanlin Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I used Overlay layer for the skintone and then painted over it in default mode - it never looks good enough without paintover, them layers aren't that smart ;_; Overlay mode gives vibrant colors but it changes shadows a bit (softer ones dissappear), in that case Color option works better for me - colors are a bit dull, but the shadows stay in their places, and then you can add some lights with Overlay. If I use Soft Light mode, then it's for final touch up, to lighten or darken some big areas.
I hope it helped at least a little bit :3

OOooooohhh this is actually really helpful!! :D Thank you!!
I understand how greyscale makes it easy but I always had problems with using the layer settings for skin tone to add color. It always turned out looking unnatural ^^; But knowing this now actually helps.

You're welcome.  I looked at your gallery and your portraits really do have expressive eyes.  Maybe Ciri is supposed to be of some other human race, but her eyes contain a mixed sense of determination and despair.  Sh's also probably quite insane.  I'm sorry I must sound like some pretentious artsy jerk.  I hope I'm not.  I really like that pic though, and maybe one day I could have the money to buy a print of it from you.

Thank you :) "The Witcher" games are based on wonderful books by Andrzej Sapkowski, I really do recommend reading and playing it - it's one of the best fantasy series I've ever ran across. :3

Dear lord I can’t stop staring at this, masterful work throughout!

One gets naturally drawn in to her face, flawless, then the hair, again flawless.

But the eyes, her face indicates she is young and has innocence

Her eyes indicate she will not hesitate to slay you.

Perfection!! Captivatingly Beautiful!!

Thanks :hug: I think I like them almost equally, maybe Ciri a bit more, only because it was easier for me to identify with a girl around my age than with Geralt. :D
