Howdy! [user1] here. This is my Secret Santa for [user52] of her characters Alex and Athena.
I laughed out loud when I found out I was Secret Santa for Arkillian because I already know her pretty well and didn't know too many of the other participants.
I'm pretty much done with the line art. I want to make a few tweaks to Alex's face and a few other places before I move to color. I think I will do some light color on this similar to what I did for my commission for Arkillian:
Overall I'm very happy with how this is turning out. I worked on the line art for hours because I often don't know exactly where the figures are going to be posed. I sort of try it one way and then erase, then try another way, then erase. I feel as though I am sculpting because I start off with light lines and then gradually build up the muscles, drapery, etc. At one point I had almost completely finished line art for Alex, realized it wasn't working, and erased him completely and started over with drawing him. And I'm glad I did because the way it is working right now is a lot more successful than the initial line art I had for him.
Any critique is welcome here but I may start color on this soon so if you have any comments on the line art, please make them as soon as possible. Thank you very much!
