CT: Minotaur of Murmur by mickyoko CT: Minotaur of Murmur by mickyoko
Another illustration for my book illustration thesis.

I am not really happy with this one for I have to repeat painting the elf Inwe, I don't like her pose at the first one. The detailing would make me blind and I have to blur some parts that I gave detail. The last reason would be that my last work looks better (requiem reprise).

Though I like how I rendered prince Amras.
Close up here. [link]

Painted in Photoshop and a few Painter.
20 more to go. :tombstone:

I don't dare imagine the time you spent on it :wow: The colors are so detailed, I'm really impressed :jawdrop: :heart:

I usually spend 20 hours per piece. What makes it long is the conceptualization. Then the detailing only comes second. Thanks a bunch btw. :D

well... I don't have a problem with inwe but somehow the minotaurus' left arm looks kinda strange... for me the joint between arm and shoulder looks as if the arm comes out of his shoulder but the wrong way...?

^^; No offense, I don't think there is something wrong with the minotaurs anatomy but I'll let my thesis adviser take a look too.

You are first to mention that, even the elites of gfxartist and the comments of renderosity did not see something wrong except for some who mentioned the elf's cape lacking something which I noticed before I submitted the piece but I'm not in the mood to fix it. What you see at the angle is already the foreshortened arm that is tilted backwards. Anyway thankies.

Di eh, makunat kasi yun minotaur kaya ala dugo. Pati di ako morbid na tao (crosses fingers at the back then grins secretly). :fork: *umph kaya mo pa?* Kung may dugo kasi parang humina yun image ng minotaur.

You've really got some great movement going on in this pic; yay for the action and suspense!! :D

The slanted angle is confusing me a bit because Inwe seems to be standing slightly upright, but the minotaur is also standing upright but on the slant, if you get what I mean ^^; But it doesn't look too bad, so I'd say you can get away with it ;)

But I love the details that you've drawn in, like the veins in the arm and on Amras' face and sword. The stone-work in the bg looks really good aswell! :nod:
20 pics to go; at least that's one less than last time! :pie: :3

I accidentally covered with a dark color Inwe's right leg, she is not standing upright though. She is actually distorted and foreshortened.

It may confuse you, this unusual angle, but this composition creates such a sense of motion and dynamism such as mentioned by the other comments in Gfxartist and renderosity. It really makes me look dumb that the work I don't like received in renderosity a 11 time rated perfect five star rating plus most favs and comments in a smallest spand of time. It really is weird. :faint:

Anyway thanks a bunch. :D

This is amazing. You can really get a feel for the action of the scene through the shading and motion blurs. It looks great. Good luck with the rest of them, if they all look they the ones so far, you're going to be fine!
