Well, my time since getting a working computer back hasn't been completely idle. Here's the latest portraits I've been working on for Tabi. They're not perfect, as my Photoshop "skills" are far from the best, but I'm kinda fond of them.

Here's Tabiya's starting portrait:

And this second portrait is used if Tabiya is completely corrupted to evil. Poor girl. :D

Anyway, how can I make them better? And yes, I do have a 'thing' for Angelina Jolie. :D I saw the picture I used as a base for this second portrait and just couldn't pass it up.

I like. FYI the Portrait Portal also has an Angelina portrait. It also has a tutorial which may help you with improving yours.

Did you know G3 has secret forum rules?
Yep. They're generally of the nature 'don't annoy Idobek.'

nods, the portrait portal's tutorial is how I got those as decent as I did. They're far from finalized, but I'm happy in the general direction they're going.

Heh, I really like the top one (the first one). The second one isn't alright, though the lips seem off.

I guess I never cared for the one that has her licking her lips...

nods, the second one is the one I've done the least work with thus far. I'm not really happy with her breastplate yet, and as you mentioned, Bri, the mouth's off a bit. I did look at Karse's Jolie pic, but it just didn't fit well with my mental pictures for Tabiya. These will, I think, when I can get them adjusted to suit. :D

I think both the portraits are pretty good, though I agree that the "evil" one has very odd lips. The breastplate on the first portrait is quite good, especially the lighting effect on the ornamentation, but I think it could do with some additional material around the edges. A simple lip ridge around the head hole might just add enough extra detail, I think.

I loved the Angelina one, but that's me.. :D the only thing that drives me nuts about it is the shine on the forehead and cheeks.

But, I wouldn't use it 'cause it's obviously Angelina. I like the first one too. :D

Glad to see that you're back Jessayla.

I think that (as it is) the portrait is a bit too photo realistic - the face mainly, breastplate seems okay. I don't mind much celebrity based portraits though - it's better if you' can't recognise the person in which the portrait was based. I like Angelina too, so it's not that I'd had something against her looks.

Ihmeellinen meri

Kummalliset kalat liukuvat syvyydessä,
tuntemattomat kukat loistavat rannalla;
olen nähnyt punaista ja keltaista ja kaikki toiset värit -
mutta ihana meri on vaarallista nähdä,
se herättää tulevien seikkailujen janon:
mitä on tapahtunut sadussa, on tapahtuva minullekin.

I think on the second one, its not the lips that are off, but the left side of her chin...its too close to her mouth...if you flesh it out a bit, it should look great...

i really like both, angelina looks smouldering...like a paladin of sune would...rowl.... :D
