:iconvia--chan: tagged me a while back it seems so it's kinda cheek for me to have done the last tag and not this one.

Rules: 

♛ Answer the 10 questions asked by the person who tagged you and make up 10 questions for the 10 you tag.
♛ Choose 10 people and put their icons in your journal.
♛ You MUST make a journal entry! No comments

1: How long have you been an artist?
I've been serious about improving for about two or three years, since I started buying books to learn from and more useful kit.

2: How much would you say you've improved over the last 2 years?
Quite a bit. Not massively, but a fair bit. 

3: Do you do art for a career or just for fun?
Just for fun and to relax. Until I get the water-colours out, then I get frustrated

4: Do you draw males or females better? Or are you good at both?
Males, since I draw them more often, I'm not terrible at drawing girls, I just find it difficult not to exaggerate their figure, since if I tone it down, they look like guys. 

5: What part of the world are you from?
Europe. :iconheplz: Maybe.

6: If you could go anywhere else in the world where would it be?
Japan maybe? I've been to Africa and I'd definitely like to go back.

7: What advice do you have for improving your artwork?
Experiment. Following art books like I have can make your art look better, but It'll also look like the art of the person you learn from. Every artist ought to have something to set them apart, after all, art is kinda a reflection of our character. I guess. So even if you learn from a book, try finding something you can use to give it your personal touch by messing about with different kit. Maybe even take something you like from somebody else's style and mix them a bit. 

8: How long do your pieces usually take?
Too long. 

9: Where do you  get inspiration?
From rping or general thought. Games and music help. Just whatever gets me thinking I guess.

10: what is your favorite medium to draw with?
I draw with a mechanical pencil but I go over lines with ink and colour with water-colours if I'm going to post it here.

I shall tag:

9: Where is the most exotic place you have been?
10: How do you deal with procrastination? 

:dummy: Yay to killing time!

So, since Delano said just to get anything and as far as Ios knows he hasn't seen much of Tyntyu, Ios decided to do the sensible thing and kidnap Tyntyu (even though he is now the leader of the Yurtganens and a general kidnapping him would be a bit of a diplomatic catastrophe), wrap him up and give him to Delano!

(I'll put up an evaluation later!)

EL: ART TRADE: Eamin by Revolution24

I'll flesh the review out later: 

Pros: 
This time, I had the chance to experiment with photoshop more, so I will have to look at effects tutorials for lightning, fire etc to try and improve this. Improving my digital work is something I'd really like to do. Also, I found pressure on tablet works with photoshop to give more varied line thickness although I didn't think it worked with photoshop before as my tablet uses a strange format for the data for pressure and apparently most applications aren't compatible with it. Apparently photoshop is. So all is gooooood. I've been playing it safe with posing but edging more towards dynamic and believable poses. For once, the hands and feet didn't give me grief, which is a major relief, normally I have to give each hand and foot several shots to get it right.


Cons: 
THE HAIR, OH GODS THE HAIR, the tips of the hair are pretty horrible, just look for yourself. I need to go and practice long hair more and look up a few tutorials. The shoulders were made too wide, giving the illusion he has a small head, even though it is correct proportion-wise going by height. This isn't so much of a con but I wasn't too sure on his eye colour. I think red was right, but maybe it was red-brown. Also, I didn't really shade much this time around. Actually, I didn't shade at all. I wasn't too certain with the lighting and light-sources for this one, given that there would be a source from each hand and from the ground, so I stayed away from it this time, a bit above my level methinks. Lastly, the colouring of the clothes was pretty difficult for me, given that there was a lot of grey and black so I had to make up the colours multiple times as I kept running out and keep everything a different shade so that it didn't  all just meld together. It got messy, needless to say.

Overall: Regardless of my gripes, but I enjoyed doing this a lot! It could be better, but I enjoyed doing it. Given that this is a hobby, that's what matters!

EL: Ios New Design by Revolution24
EL: Ios New Design
For :iconelvenlegends:

----

 Right, between designing Ios' armour and sword, drawing the final lines, water-colouring said final lines before FINALLY sharpening and editing the painting in photoshop and giving it a simple background this took AGGGGGEEESS. I was considered a year younger when I started work on this project as compared to when I finished. 

 So, in terms of design, I took a lot more time to consider it. Ios' colours are muted so as not to stand out too much and camoflage a bit better and he now wears leather and cloth as opposed to some steel in order to reduce his weight and make himself more mobile. The spikes on his shoulder and elbows along with the plating on his knees are made of dragon bone (taken from Viraku'un) and his knife and the pommel of his sword are made of two of Viraku'un's teeth. The sword went through several incarnations before I was happy with it. Originally the cross-guard was supposed to be shaped like a wing but after looking for more inspiration I decided to go for green flames winding around the handle and blade and a single scale from Iilah. His hair has grown long (after a suggestion from Archer). 

 As for the drawing itself I'm pretty damn happy. I tried for a few poses, some static, others dynamic. I decided to go with a simple but more 'powerful' looking pose. With regards to the lines, I'm very happy with the body and hair, it's simple but works. As for the face, it's not my best work, a lot of my previous attempts looked much better however it may just be the inking messed it up a bit. The skin tone had me worried as there was a lot of yellow in it when I was first painting this and it was maybe a bit too watery as it spread out of the lines but it's worked out alright, not amazing, but alright. 

 Overall, as usual, I'm pleased with it. The time it took was maybe on the long side but there were a lot of steps to this as I wanted to design him properly, which I feel I have. He looks much more like the character I want him to be.

Ios and his design belong to me
