Gallows by Palidoozy Gallows by Palidoozy
I got busy with moving (fourth time in six months? agghhh), and then diablo came out, and then my boyfriend showed up on my doorstep and then I remembered skyrim exists.

Must do more art.

I wasn't really happy with it but I felt like I spent too long on it so I shipped it in. At least I felt like I learned a lot doing it.

I'll be going through comments/art/stuff tomorrow! So sorry if I haven't gotten back to anything or respond way too late. :C

You totally nailed the pose and I can almost hear the coat tail snapping from how you've depicted it's movement. That's one of the things I like most about your work, the energy in not only pose but the clothing.

As a costume designer I am intrigued by the coat. Is it tucked into his belt at the small of his back and is the cape and torso all one piece that layers over a shirt beneath?

Admittedly, the coat is rather fudged--it's inspired by a standard ol' cowboy duster ([link] is one, and [link] . Sadly I can't find the exact image I used :( ). The part that's impossible is the fact that a coat would never split so perfectly underneath a belt and then flow outwards; his is somehow closed at the top, then magically becomes open towards the bottom to flow out. Realistically, either 1) the duster would be completely open at the top or 2) you'd be able to see above the belt where the duster began to split, but I thought both looked weird when you stuck a belt over it. So I fudged it. :C

Thanks muchly for your comments, and sorry for rambling so hard!

Don't worry about the rambling I do it too. I was just curious because that is how my brain approaches all character designs no matter their intended purpose.

I really enjoyed the composition regardless of realism. Sometimes drama makes for a better picture and this was definitely one of those instances.

character is cool colours are not so good, probably needs more contrast between the cape and the torso?

Hmmm, I think you're right. I had the contrast up pretty high, then actually made it more neutral. I'll get to fixing that when I get home.

Thanks man!

considering how hardcore i got into starcraft 2 last year, i think it would be in my best interests to avoid diablo 3. it does look damn pretty though.

Haha I hear you! I got out of D3 thankfully, but then sucked straight back into Skyrim. D'oh.

and now isnt it getting some mmo expansion?

The MMO is separate from Skyrim, and from what I understand, basically related in name only. It's also being made by a different company than their core team. Granted, most of the Elder Scrolls games are hundreds of years apart and only related in lore/name only.

Skyrim is getting an expansion though, stand-alone non-online. I am excited about the expansion, not so much about the MMO.
