Atobe Commission by jojostory
A renaissance-style portrait painting of Atobe from Prince of Tennis! This is going to be fun.
After looking up loads of examples, I put together this composition. His costume is based on his ALTAir figurine!
His leg was wonky, as was his proportions! I shortened his torso and looked up a proper reference for the foot on the right. The sketch is in different colors because I have separate layers for the background, hair, body, and clothes so I can erase away without worrying about destroying other parts of the drawing.
Finished doing lineart of the character! What a complex outfit haha. Only the flashiest for Atobe.
Lined the dog, and flatted all the different parts of Atobe! I am so used to using masks in SAI, but masks/selection doesn't work quite the same in Clip Paint Pro? I need to figure out a faster way of doing this... Started saying down base colors for the background, looking at a lot of "royalty portrait" examples from Google images haha. I need to make the background darker... Started shading Atobe just a bit, inspired by the Naguri stream I had been watching earlier in the day. She uses yellows and blues to shade white! So I'm trying that out also.
The Artist has asked for critique!
How is the composition? Does it seem unbalanced or empty in places?
