Archon drawing <a href=Archon drawing Archon11" />

Just a small drawing of my kabal's archon I'd been working on, I haven't really been motivated to do anymore on it for a while, so figured I would upload it here. Appreciate criticism if you've got the time. Smile

I like the composition you've chosen Smile I might make the ankles just a little thinner, so that they have a more tapered look compared to the calf, but only fractionally. I also like your Archon's expression - "... Hmm. Soul trap, you say? Interesting ..."

Your use of light and where the shade falls is very natural, too!

A lovely piece, I love seeing a bit of art in here!
My only criticism would be some of the anatomy, but that's just something that comes with time and practise.
As Malys said before, the shading is very pleasant. Smile

I've had slight issues with over extended torsos in the past, but I've been trying to resolve that with my recent drawings, so I'm glad that didn't seem to be an issue with this one. I'll make sure to work some more on the anatomy in my future drawings, drawing feet and ankles is always a pain. Razz Thanks for the feedback, I'll try to work on those.

I approve of the shoulder pads. Very Happy

Nice work. It's good to see some drawings of DE

A good resource if you want to study DE proportions (which are not quite Human) would be to look up Jes Goodwin's design sketches. (He invented the Eldar, after all, so he should know ... Smile ) He's also a very capable artist quite apart from the design side.


Yup, definitely up to something.

Ah thanks for the suggestion Lady Malys, I'll definitely use his sketches for reference in future drawings.

It would certainly be very suspicious if she didn't appear to be up to something Razz

Ah, yes, but we expect an Archon to be more subtle about it.

Haemies, Gang leaders, Corsairs and Nightfiends can all cackle and look evil, but we expect Archons to be above that.

I laughed a bit at the scene you're portraying.
