Unit portrait pipeline

Recommended Posts

I would leave it as it is

(anyway, you can always crop later on, if you really think that would be better)

I'm beginning to hesitate now.

The unit somehow looks even stronger when you crop it xD

I need to activate the bottom left of the picture somehow, or cut it out completely

broke up the flat gray with a shadow that should go in front of the flank, i think

Now that is closer to what we need! Lots of good detail not hidden by shadows. A few things: I think the shaft of the spear could use some stronger highlights to make it stand out from the black horse. Speaking of the horse, perhaps it could be brown instead of black to help it stand out from the background.

Is it intended to have a rough unfinished look?

I'm relying on the scaledown to tighten the loose edges and whatnot, but I can see with the crests that a little texture can go a long way, so I might just reconsider that.

JustinOperable seemed to obtain a very sharp look with his paintover. I would suggest that for each your drawings if I had any idea how he did it xD

Thanks :D

did a little scribbling to bring out finer detail and changed the horsey color and whatnot

sharpened a few ambiguous edges too

That's absolutely beautiful LordGood! Exactly what I want to see in a unit portrait. :)

I'll add the unicorn to the eyecandy list.

One of these days Zaggy is supposed to make a rainbow-farting unicorn unit....

Was thinking the same thing, as an 'equivalent' for the AoM wuv-wuv-woo thing.

Direct profile didn't seem dynamic enough, so i gave it another go

I didn't like how the javelin was parallel to the frame either

how about this one?
