    Incredible perspective work! This is really stretching the capabilities of Heromachine.

    @suleman: Thanx so much! Believe it or not, this was actually a fairly simple pose, though a lot of masking was involved in fitting the clothes to it; you can see the basics of how I did it here: http://www.heromachine.com/forums/topic/show-your-work-progress-of-a-design/#post-143197

    As with the portrait, reference pics really helped. I’ve been wanting/trying to do a piece with this perspective for a while but couldn’t seem to figure out how w/out it looking awkward until I googled “aerial view of woman”. These two stock photos made figuring out the placement/proportions a lot clearer:

    Now that I’ve learned the value of reference pics, I wanted to try a more complicated pose. I also wanted to do a piece using the coloring/shading style I used in “Penance Labor”, but more so.

    Calling it “Primaries” because of the color scheme.

    WOW!  Very cool!

    Your posing is perfect and love the colors.  The secondary patterns on your highlights are crazy good.  I can only imagine how bogged down your computer was after applying those :).  Are you in the field of art or is this just a hobby?

    The only thing I would ask you to revisit are the highlights on the hands.  When using small gradient shapes tends to make them brighter and more solid.  I would go to a number 2 size scale width on the fingers and tone down the color to see if they would blend more.

    Thanks for posting this.  Very inspiring to try something out of the box with the program.

    Cheers!

    lol Thanx JR, preciate that assessment hahah

    And ty Vengeance! NGL, kinda proud of this one.

    @ams: Just a hobby. But I spent much of my childhood planning on growing up to be an artist. Round the time puberty hit, I decided I really liked THINGS (like having my bills paid on time) though lol

    Good catch on the hands! I thought they weren’t fitting quite right but couldn’t figure out the issue; I’ll have to try maybe some transparency on those finger highlights… when I’m feeling very patient because yes, I left the patterns for last before so it wasn’t an issue, but FOSHO it will take FOREVER to do any edits with them on there now lmao

    ALSO… latest entry for One Part, Many Characters: “Rook”

    Conversation in another thread inspired me to try creating a baby, so here’s what I came up with.

    I did two versions, one in the traditional HM two-tone color style and one in the gradient color style I used on my last two pieces:

    Title: “D’aw” =P

    Welp, guess I have to try now. Pretty sure any attempt I make isn’t going to be as good as that though.

    Feet and hands better on the upper. Hair definitely better on the lower.

    –You didn’t show the bug in the picture before, when it dive-bombed into the baby’s mouth . . .

    …well. That sure is a baby. Very impressive! The shading work really blends the parts together, nothing sticks out in a bad way.

    Yeah, haven’t quite figured out how to get the detailing in on small things like fingers using this gradient coloring style yet.

    And omfg, you’re so right, thats EXACTLY the expression! I can’t unsee it now lmao!

    Thanks! Yeah, this one really blended a lot more smoothly than the others in this style. Not sure if its just cus its mostly skin tone or what.

    AND… entry for CDC 316 “Wall Vault”

    And figured, since I’d made the pose, I aughta do something with it, so…
