Darkstalkers: Felicia by TPollockJR Darkstalkers: Felicia by TPollockJR
Here's the first piece I did for the Darkstalkers Tribute book, Felicia. Who doesn't love a half-naked chick with blue hair? Anyway, this piece also got rejected. I'm a little surprised neither made it in, but what can you do right?

Here's where you can see the Bishamon Darkstalkers piece: [link]

i think what you mean is "who doesn't love a naked cat-girl with blue hair that can kick ass", which i think sums it up.. other than that, it's a great action shot with excellent shadowing

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's ...a sexy catgirl falling from the sky. I've died and gone to my own personal heaven!

I better should say:
Look! There on the dancefloor!
It's a girl!
It's a cat!
No... it's Felicia!

Very nice! There's so much blue and the sky is beautiful <3. The buildings are also great.

It doesn't matter if she's naked! Nudity is natural and people shouldn't get offended by it!

Wow, it's really dynamic. The only thing I'd point out... is not the moon. It's the direction of the face, it bothers me somewhat, I think it would look better slightly more aligned with the chest direction. And maybe add some ferocity to her expression.

The rest of the body looks xtremely awesome to me. =)

Typically you pick a vanish point, and all your "horizontal" lines run to it... There's alot more to it, you should look it up, there's plenty of resources to teach you. More than I can give in a comment here.

What I mean is that she's technically naked because she doesn't wear clothes. XD

Wonderful! It's been forever since I've seen a good action-pose of Felicia like this! Good job!

Though, may I offer some advice? The moon's position just doesn't quite look right. I guess it's because of the way the buildings frame the picture, and then the moon is just kinda... off to the side. The moon should be kinda behind Felicia, maybe between her left arm and left leg, to be better centered and more effective in the picture
Also, you missed so much dramatic shading that you could've done! Unless Felicia is attacking a source of light, the moon is the only major source of light here, so you could've gone all kinds of fancy with values here.
Despite this, this piece is truly exceptional, and I hope to see more pieces with such great action in them.
Adios for now!

Well, you're not the first to have beef with the moon's position, so maybe there's something to that... And yeah, I really thought about doing more with dramatic lighting, but I didn't want most of her to be in shadow. But thanks, definitely good ideas.

I really like the concept and Felicia, but maybe you should look how speedlines work. I think they should follow the perspective of the builing or the other way around to keep it insistant.

TPollockJR Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2009
It actually looked really flat when the speed lines matched the buildings, that's why they're currently more focused towards her...

Not quite sure... The book better kick ass, or I'm going to be quite disappointed.

i like it! (and Im not exactly a fan of Felicia)
the composition looks a little off, maybe if the moon was in the top-middle, or maybe is just me.

Thanks. But I didn't want everything to be perfectly centered...

a giant red moon in the top middle, that would be awesome! no offence man, but right now this look like a scene from TMNT
