We have a lot of depictions of her daughter, Skylla, and they're rather strange. She was topless and had giant kētos tails with dogs emerging from her lower torso. The earliest depiction I could find of Lamia is from 1607 and it's uh, it's not what what you'd expect.

>>2188 I'm surprised she's so relatively low on the Hololive totem pole considering her pleasant design and delicious looking shiny golden templetacles
>>2188 Pretty good overall, gotta say I'm really tripped up by her right arm though. Is she supposed to be wearing a sleeve? If not I can't understand what the fuck her wrist is doing in relation to her forearm.
>>2194 Yeah she has a lsingle sleeve giving a little contour volume on the underside of her arm, you can see the sleeve tied to her upper arm, she's just letting her wrists dangle
>>2196 Well, if that's the case the coloring difference between her skin and her "sleeve" are so minimal I didn't think she was wearing anything. You could either change the color or provide it with a sleek "texture" so it's a bit more obvious it's clothing, like you did with the stockings subtle purple coloring. It's pretty good as is everywhere else.

>>2237 >is an artist >didn't make her own vtuber avatar As much as I find her design cute that kind of kills it for me.
>>2239 That's just how Hololive is, if she had a say in the matter she'd have probably at least designed her own avatar and maybe get someone to help rig it. There's a lot of indie vtubers who are artists that made their own avatars, if that's your fancy.

>>2276 Oh shit I also fucked up the neck during coloring.
All right, let's do this. 1d999 = 955
>>2277 Nice dvbs. Unfortunately color alone isn't the problem, her neck is substantially further to the viewer's left of her center mass than it should be. Also, the lines beneath her chest suggests a volume to her breasts that isn't being expressed across the contours on the body which sort of flattens the drawing (pun intended). Keep it up, try and think about any novel accessories or special items you could add to lend appeal to the character. I like her face and hair.
(5.77 KB 147x60 ClipboardImage.png)

>>2280 >her neck is substantially further to the viewer's left of her center mass It was meant to be leaning towards the broom, but I fucked up the trapezius, colored over it, and forgot about the collar that still has some lines going over the neck. >which sort of flattens the drawing That whole pectoralis area really fucks me up. Both the area above the breasts, the breasts themselves, and the way it connects into the arm.
>>2276 Your right arm is 1. Far longer than the left arm, and 2. far longer than any human arm has any right to be. You'll probably have a better time with the hair and skincolor problem if you make the hair slightly grey and make the skin slightly red/pink. It's going to be really hard to pull off that ivory on ivory unless you're working in black and white. By limiting your color palette to only one color on the skin you fuck yourself over.
>>2282 >Your right arm Isn't that the left? >if you make the hair slightly grey and make the skin slightly red/pink I hadn't thought of that. I thought white on white was common on colored pics, but now that I looked into it it's way more common to actually shift the hue and saturation. That explains why I had such a hard time just fucking with the value.
>>2283 >I thought white on white was common on colored pics, but now that I looked into it it's way more common to actually shift the hue and saturation. Yep, though it really depends on how much you're relying on lines to seperate subjects, I don't know if you did it consciously or not, but here, >>2276 your line work is subtle enough that it's not going to delineate the hair from the skin. I really can't think of any character off the top of the head that is pure white hair on pure white skin (outside of manga, but they use screentone there), and even if there was, the artist would have to use heavy linework to keep the areas separate. I supposed I should also say you're not limited to "gray" as far the the slight tone on the hair. For example, the second image you posted looks like it's mixing a very subtle amount of blue/green into the hair, just be aware when you start adding shit like that you can very easily fuck it up, adding too much color and then veering hard into anime style territory. Now it's up to you whether or not that's a good thing, just be aware it will have that effect if you use too much color in the hair. >Isn't that the left? If I wanted to specify from the character's perspective I would say "proper left", by default I also talk in terms relative to the viewer unless otherwise specified. I don't know about other artists on this board, but for me as an artist viewing work, I am always mapping my explanations from viewers perspective. If you wanted to be pedantic, I could say "viewer's right arm", but I'm lazy. This is a problem associated with human subjects.
