Minako the Awkward by Malla13 Minako the Awkward by Malla13
Full view pretty please? :3
The finished fan art portrait of my monk character from the online game Guild Wars. :)

There are things I like, thing I wish I'd reworked, and things I wish I hadn't done, but overall I'm quite pleased with this one. I even tried out some new tools in Painter that I'd never played with before (the tapered bleach erasers can give you some really cool effects!).

This was the first time I've tried to paint more Asian features, and I don't think I pulled it off too well. :| She does look pretty, though. I purposefully kept her eye a little large to fit into the whole game-character anime look, plus I think the light reflections look more obvious in a bigger eye.

About a week on and off, many refs used.
Guild Wars (c) Anet, NCsoft, probably someone else.
Minako (c) ME. :D I love my characters!

Minako the Adorable. :aww: I so miss Guild Wars. I really like the tattoos, but as someone else pointed to me on one of my only two pieces of visual art, I think they seem almost painted on, rather than inked in. I'm not real sure how to explain it...

I know what you mean. I really struggled with the tattoos, and this was the best version I managed.
Overall, though, I'm ridiculously proud of this one. It think it's my best so far technique-wise. :)
Thanks for commenting!

Oh, it's a great picture and a far stretch better than I can do even with photomanips. :P You've every right to be proud. :aww:

She's very pretty. Your sense of proportions are really strong.

Thank you. Trust me, that's only with faces. I can't do landscapes or machines or much else really. XD

I don't think the Asian features were pulled off badly at all! She looks amazing! The lighting is fantastic!
