Pixie by vagrant-angel Pixie by vagrant-angel
Some significant improvement over last time, considering I used minimal reference on this one. Mostly for the pose, and a rough idea on lighting.

Still need considerable amount of practice on a lot of stuff. Values still feel slightly muddy. I also need a better understanding of colors, so I don't rely too much on layer styles. And of course anatomy, anatomy, anatomy.

Anyway, hope ya like the fanart of Megan Gwynn a.k.a Pixie. 

Never really read any of the comics she's in and only got to know her through a play-by-email RPG a friend ran.

Always pictured her as more "cute" than "sexy" which is what most of the artworks/references you'd find on google look like. 

My long anime influence still shows, but slowly learning to draw something more closer to realism. 

Trying to find that nice mix of both; also being able to draw either sounds pretty good to me.

Nice work. Pixie is one of my favorites and you totally did her justice.

Thanks, glad to hear from someone that's more familiar with the character that it isn't too far off from her.

I like how its almost completely lineless and has this sense of depth and mass. You've been moving from 2D to 3D recently, which is great, but I'll always miss your inked 2D work and sketches! 

Also, the tip of her right wing doesnt seem to glow like the rest of her wings. While not very relevant, I can't help but notice it.

Yeah, really wanna learn to draw more realistic illustrations, or at least something in between it and anime/manga. That, and the fact I can't draw freehand lineart on the tablet at all :p

I'm guessing you meant the lower right wing? Nice catch, been so focused on the face I completely missed that. Now that you mention it, the alignment feels somewhat off as well.
