Lea Comish - Wald Minimal by TheNapier Lea Comish - Wald Minimal by TheNapier
    "Iron-clad feather-feet pounding the dust, an October's day, towards evening. Sweat embossed veins standing proud to the plough. Salt on a deep chest seasoning. Last of the line at an honest day's toil, turning the deep sod under. Flint at the fetlock, chasing the bone. Flies at the nostrils plunder."




      I think you might want some changes done (I'm sure I messed with the tack) before then. :XD: Just let me know what/if anything needs to be changed... other than that, hope you like it, I'll finish it's twin as soon as possible. :aww:

Egads, I fail at doing anything in a timely manner online.

I love this minimalist work. People seem to think that more detail automatically makes something awesome, but that is far from true and these lovely little pieces really prove the point.

You use nice blocks of color that do a wonderful job of suggesting the form and don't get sucked into using plain lines, even with the thinner elements.

I would watch some of your shapes and angles on the tack. I know driving isn't your thing, but even from an aesthetic point of view the vaguely teardrop shape of the collar would work a little better, allowing the eye to drop and move to the lower right without the help of the circular composition. The collar shape also tends to be straight towards the front and curved towards the shoulder.

The collar should also settle about parallel to he shoulder, which in an ideal world isn't much greater than 45 degrees.

That said I really do love this depiction of Wald. You did a good job on him.
What do you think?

This is really fantastic! :la: Do you just use a lasso tool to block in the colors or do you use the brush? :meow: This looks really amazing. :love:

Teehee, thankies! :giggle: Actually, I start out with a regular sketch (sometimes refed, sometimes not), then I use the path tool... much cleaner lines that way than the lasso and/or the brush. I'm flattered you like it! :happybounce:
