Evolution of a panel

This weekend is solely dedicated to storyboard work.
Ok, no, I lied.
I keep going back to Water Tribe. I started posting part 4 revised. It's going rather fast because the tweaks are so minor. But...



Evolution of Azula

The reworked panel of Azula- old version makes me gag- ack! I keep messing up these characters! I think the new version is slightly better, but I keep over tweaking it. I gotta let it go!

Which version is better? A or B? I can't see anything anymore. Right now version A is up on DA. Should I keep it or change it for version B?

EDIT: THE VOTES ARE IN AND B WINS WITH A SWEEPING 100% APPROVAL!
Any politician would be jealous.


Ok, enough procrastinating- returning to storyboard work now. Got two pages and a half to do for Monday 9am, and one of them is action. *dies*

i say B, she's sitting up taller, and straighter, A kinda looks like she's slouching

She's probably slouching because I slouch (bent down over drawings too much). When I draw a pose, sometimes it's just too much like what I do. I have to move away from that.

The only difference I can see in A and B is like.. B is skinnier or something O_o. Imma go with B but that may just be because I like things tall and lean lol. Now tha tI look at it again though, she looks like she is sitting up a little straighter in B, so yea definitely B.

The old version looks like she is trying to be sultry x).

Azula, sultry? Heeee!
She was looking more and more stumpy in A. Thanks for the feedback!

B. I think the highlights came out better. :thumbsup: We all need a break from work, every once in a while. Instead of a coffee break, you take a Water (Tribe) one.

I wonder if I could actually say that at work: "I'm on my Water Tribe break."

The instant I read the cut title, the 'evolution' music from Pokemon began playing inside my head... 'Congratulations! Your AZULA evolved into FIRE LORD!'

Silliness aside, I think I prefer the pose from B, but it's so slight a difference that I wouldn't have noticed without it being pointed out.

Ohhh, that could be turned into a comic: start purely pokemon, when all of a sudden, one evolves into Azula (I haven't watched enough of the show, so I don't know how they show an evolution...)

B, I think. At first I saw no difference, but it looks like A is a little more "squashed" -- B fits Azula's attitude -- sitting up straighter, putting her shoulders back. "Hi! I am bloodthirsty girl who wants to be noticed as a girl, and feared as a scary monster!"

You just had me singing "Scary Monster, Super Creeps" by Bowie, ha ha!

I say B as she looks alot more dangerous in that one :) (also the darker hair rendering makers her really pop off the bg)

By overtweaking her, I started to make everything darker on her. Waddayaknow, it helped.

Are you drawing these on layers (foreground versus background)?
rufftoon
Mar. 15th, 2009 05:14 pm (UTC)
The original drawing is flat on paper, all drawn together.Thank you Photoshop, when I need to fix things , I'll lasso the area that needs rework and cut it out to put on a different layer.

B. The lines are darker, so she stands out more/looks more important. Plus she's sitting up straighter/looks more like she's holding a powerful pose. The hand by her legs seems to look less "hangy", too -- like she's tensed and ready, not just letting it dangle.

I'm glad you're seeing an improvement, because I...just couldn't see anything anymore. Thank you!
