As a Woman

Posted Mar 27, 2018, 2:42:21 AM

My finished first attempt at digital illustration, Masahiro and Muidemi. Masahiro nearly dies on the battlefield and requests Muidemi (masquerading as her male identity "Eidon") to come to him as a woman if he should live through his injury. Well, some time later and he is still bandaged but he does survive. So, as a "man" of her word, she comes to him dressed as a woman - in borrowed things. One thing leads to another and she finally admits she loves him as he proclaims to love her ;) blah blah blah, more story, lol, but here it is.

    There's a lot of emotion and sensuality here, and the story adds a great deal to the image.

    Gorgeous work!

      Thank you so much for the wonderful compliment AlleyMarie! I will keep working at it and hopefully have some more developed to share again in the next couple of weeks Smile

    It sounds like a beautiful story! The kiss looks very passionate. Drawing kisses is always hard so great job!

    The Masahiro's pose looks very loose and passionate but Muidemi feels a bit stiff. Perhaps her head needs more tilt.

    If you aren't doing so already, it might help to do gesture studies first to help keep the poses loose. Proko on youtube has some great free videos on gesture.

    I hope this was helpful. Great job on this!

      Thank you BogusRed! I am in the office now and whoops, should be focusing on my day job, lol. I cannot wait to check out the information you shared, it sounds great. Thank you for the encouragement as well, I recently had a run in with an old artist friend and to your point in the newsletter this month, he absolutely cut me down and discouraged my story writing as well for the second time in my life. Last time I listened, which was about 12 years ago now, and failed to extract anything from my head. Well dude, this time you made me mad and that was more motivation to get back in the saddle than you will ever know ;) This is my first work since that insult, and though I always need to look to development I feel as though I can actually draw something, as well as express this movie that has been running in my mind for the better part of two decades. Geeze I'm getting old lol!
