PSW - Random Qui'in-ish Turian Portraiture by MoonEcho PSW - Random Qui'in-ish Turian Portraiture by MoonEcho
Hurp. I have my fingers in way too many pies, and none of them are the right pies! D'OH. Have a lot of half-finished things, but none of them were especially close to being ready for a Post Something Wednesday. I drudged up one half-finished guy and tried to see if I could salvage him for something presentable.

Eh. I need to work more on whole figures rather than so many faces/busts, but this one I believe I started up as a study for texture practice. Think I've come up with a nicer way to render that skin on the neck, so it looks a little softer. Less like 'scales', more like 'hide'.

Other than that, this isn't anyone particularly. Yes, he looks like Lorik Qui'in and has Qui'in's markings and Qui'in's lovably big nose, but I'm not gonna claim this is him because I'm relatively blah on this concept-less study piece. Lorik deserves only the best!

I have like a zillion other things I should have been working on! ;A; So much to do, so much slowness to do it with. :C

Oh! Turians are for Mass Effect belongs to Bioware.

VERY awesome work here! 8D It's like if I ever wanted to know how a turian in real life would look, I could just take a look at this and see it clearly! XD

Lul, thank you! It's really just that I work at a very humongous size, so it looks more impressive than it really is when I shrink it down. Very easy to do nooks and crannies when the nooks and crannies are the size of a house :XD:

Wow, really? :O How large was the drawing in pixels originally? You've got me curious now :D

Hmmm, looks like this one was just over 4000 pixels tall. Actually not as big as I thought! I often work even larger.

Ah. I only worked on canvases of that size for a while in the summer and some of autumn, when I had an A3 sketchpad. But all the pages got used up >< need to buy a new one one of these days.

First, noise indicating modest dismissal of your compliment: "aww, jdskjsdj"

Second, there's no trick to it, it's just a simple trick! Erh, I think all there really is to it is that I work really, really large and then shrink down tons. I will also keep vouching for Painter 12. It can be a touchy program sometimes, but it's hard to beat AFAIK for blending. Also has some great brushes for texture. This guy is mostly made of a lot of "Charcoal Spatter."

So that's it basically, I'm pretty sure anybody could match my gimmicks X)

Ha ha, pies FTW. :D

Lovely portrait. :) I was so pleased to FINALLY spot Lorki's eyes the other day by the way. There's a glitch or something, at least on my games, that hides his eyes, but I found some extra dialogue where his eyes came through beautifully. I honestly didn't even know what colour they were until then.

Yes, poor Lorik did get a bit glitched, which is a complete pity. Hopefully we'll see him again in ME3 looking his very sharpest! :meow:

Oh, so you have this problem as well then? I thought it was my computer and ancient Xbox perhaps.

Yes, totally agree. :) He's such a sweetheart and his dialogues always make me smile so much. Love his voice as well.

Have you read this fan fic by the way? If not, I can recommend it. :) [link]

Uh, so yeah! Thank you for being sweet and awesome all the time always!
