Outsider: Proud Beryl by AriochIV Outsider: Proud Beryl by AriochIV
Just a panel from page 85 of the comic [link] that I spent some effort on. Beryl is somber at the conclusion of a fleet battle in which lives were lost, but she cannot conceal her pride as she answers questions about the performance record of her unit.

Photoshop and Lightwave. This is the "full-size" colored panel; the linework is inked at twice this size.

I can't help it, something bothers me here. About the proportional size of her mouth or chin to the face as a whole. Could be her mouth is just small?

Pretty other than that, always nice to see her.

The idea was that she's rolling her head back a bit, looking down her nose a bit in "proud" mode. So I did move the features up on her face. The fault I think is probably in the shading on her chin. Probably should have moved the shadow up so there's more of a sense that you're seeing the underside of her chin.

I very much appreciate the critique.

Oh yeah, I can see what you were going for. Been fighting with that angle many times myself. I think part of it is the strong outline of the chin, which isn't needed because the jaw transitions smoothly into the neck from our POV instead of overlapping. The shadow thing would probably help much, yeah. Anyway details details. :)

I think the chin is a bit too long, but I always have the opposite problem -- not enough chin -- so what do I know? Maybe she's just pushing her chin forward in a "we rock" sort of way.

She's beautiful, as usual, in any case.
