Assassin by Peter-Ortiz Assassin by Peter-Ortiz
*Edit* Hey guys, thanks for all the comments and critiques. After getting some feedback, I started to look at the nose a bit more and didn't really like how it looked either, so i tried to fix it a little. Not sure if it made much of a difference, but let me know what ya think. It'll probably be more noticeable in the close-ups.


Surprisingly this ended up being a straight forward painting, nothing really changed with the character or background as I progressed, which is rare. Only thing I changed was a simple black mask that I had covering the lower part of her face, decided to get rid of it though. Overall spent around 20 hours or so on it i think, for the most part I was satisfied with the outcome.

Critiques/comments welcomed.

Impressive. The textures are damn good, from the leaves and trees to the clothes and skin. That pendant she's holding's very well done too, from the shape to the appropriate lighting on her and the ground. The contrast of visual environments is interesting too, mixing the 'deep dark forest' motif with the rainbow. And maybe it wasn't planned, but the foggy path with dead fall behind her and no footprints gives the impression of forward being the only option, like her goal's something that can't be avoided or turned away from.

Again, excellent piece.

I love it. I'm writing a book, and the main character is an assassin.

I'm doing my "research"

Woah! I was just checkin your front page and I saw the rainbow in the background.

I like the discreetness of certain things. Now I feel that I gotta go look at everything all over again... xD

Some people have the gift of putting an image from their head into something tangible. You are, in my opinion, near the top of that list.

Amazing work.

I like the changes you made, looks better now! One more thing you could do with the nose is get rid of the rain streak that's to the left side of it - the white streak over the shadow-side of the nose makes it look a bit weird at the lower resolution you've got here. ;-)

I'm sorry but it still looks the same.

Let me explain better:

the hair says: "chin goes straight down, face is north-south

face says: "I wanna look to my right/ lean my face of the center of the body"

How to fix in my opinion: remove the hair from her right side of the face a bit, let it follow the face line

place the hairline a bit more on top of her head
