Below is my spring exchange sent to Fanguard "the god of exchanges" so the pressure was on. he wanted something,, and I quote
"Maybe something inspired by "Fairy Tail" the anime/manga"
So after doing some research and watching a number of Anime shorts online, I selected one of the main characters to emulate along with a background character. Of course I did not choose one of the "good" "guys", instead I went for one of the bad girls!
Using 60129: Chelaxian Infernal Binder as the mini I give you
Minerva Orlando of the Sabertooth guild!
I tried to imitate her power build up magic vortex in her casting hand, which always happens just before she casts a spell. The colors overall are loosely based on the character including her signature whites scarf. I , of course, had too add my own signature color (orange) as well.
Then I added the background Palace guard character. The guards show up in the series in the last episode I watched,,, just cause!
here is 14407: Crusader Templar Ironspine as the guard in his dress palace colors!
I hope you enjoy and all feedback is appreciated!
With all the black on the model, contrasted by the stark white hair, this was very difficult to photograph. I need to dig up a good mid-grey backdrop for something like this.
edit 12/15/13: new pics!
Damn that speck of dust on the shoulder. I'll take another round of pics once I get a better backdrop. The blacks really do go right to Pure Black and the hair has some interesting blue shadows that are pretty much lost. I think I'm also hobbled a bit by my ancient camera, the dern thing is 8 years old now!
I'm quite happy with how it came out overall. I feel my gold getting better, I'm starting to get a feel for where to lay in the highs and lows. A few stumbles here and there, but as usual I learned a lot painting this one. I think it does a pretty nice job at portraying Storm, too!
