Lake of Tears by Lucky978 Lake of Tears by Lucky978
Commissions for :iconwolfofsorrow: of her character Weird in wolf form.

This was quite fun and challenging! She wanted me to use the same style as "evil" and so I happily took out my inks and markers and made a mess of my art room XD I love this style for that reason. Nothing makes me happier than wildly flinging a paint brush.

I hope I did the character justice *crosses fingers* It is always a challenge when you have to turn a character into a different form.

Anyways, happy sunday....school tomorrow. *coughistillhavehomeworkough*
Yeah...I need to work on science.

Materials: Copic airbrush, inks, watercolor, colored penicl on bristol board

*note: a picture in this style runs about $30 (if it is a one subject painting)

Very smooth. From the trees to the wolf to the little bit of red, everything looks really good. I like how everything seems to just go together like it really belongs. Nice work.

Wow this is deep, the background itself would be a pain to do, not to mention the wolf and everything else. Amazingly done, the colors give it a good schema and the blood could be seen from a mile away. Well portrayed. I like it.

The falling eyes are a great interpretive distortion of the character. I also like the spotted, broken world around her.

I would have liked to see Weird appear hungrier than she does here. Maybe a little more desperate for something. It seems like it would have fit the art style better.

Still, great work.

Thank you! And thanks for the crit (I always enjoy getting critique)
Hmm...Perhaps I should have made Weird a bit more desperate. But I can't put my finger on how to do that...maybe open the mouth up wider or make her clenching her front paws...I'm not sure. What do you think?

I looked at Weird in human form. She's pretty skinny, so I think Weird in her wolf form should look more on the starving side, but still fairly muscular. This would maker her appear to have to try hard to acquire what she wants, but still get less in the end. I also think her fingers and toes should be more spread out, so it looks like she's gripping the rocks beneath her. With her finger and toes neatly side-by-side the way they are, it gives off a fairly subtle sense of dignity, and dignity requires a person to be capable of collecting his or herself, which is the opposite feel of desperation.

I think going after "tired desperation" would have been best. You get at it pretty well with how you have her slumped over a bit, as well as with the falling eyes, which imply a huge amount of exhaustion. Primarily using cooler colors helps, too.

As the work is titled "Lake of Tears," these changes also would have emphasized your crying motif.

Your style in this piece is pretty awesome. It looks great for conceptual work. Have you worked in that field at all before?
