Ender's Game


Well I figured someone ought to post something robotics/mechanical around here, so there: This is an illustration of Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. Remember that last scene when he's battling with the helmet and the whatnot and the ending and stuff? Sorry, spoilers, right? Well this is it. I have here the black and white study done in charcoal. Do you like it? Don't you like it? Any suggestions for the palette? I'm thinking green light/yellow light on either side. If you have specific paintings to look at that would be helpful. I found a Foster that has O.K. colors for this...

definite like on this one, i love that it's not 100% photo realistic with the elongated neck and the small shoulders. The lighting is great and i love the shapes the the helmet is making as well as the eyes.

i kinda want the background space to be a little bit darker, but not so much that it competes with the other dark shapes, just enough to make the lines of her shoulder a bit more crisp.

Really great piece though!

Agree with Chris. BUt you honeslty do get better and better with every piece you do. This looks awesome.

Yeah this is a great piece. You got some really nice subtitles in the neck muscles and lights. Kudos.
