Shrike - Study II by Griatch-art Shrike - Study II by Griatch-art
Sorry for repeating the same subject over and over, but I need the training. :)

I got a lot of good critique and feedback on my first Shrike Study here on DA as well as elsewhere on the web (thanks!). Looking at it now, I myself can only agree with the critique, that's what a fresh eye will do for you!
However, as I sat down to try to fix things I came to the conclusion it was better to start all over again rather than to fix the old image. So I did, using roughly the same angle and concept (although I ended up using a different background and a slightly more realistic style).

Whereas I did intend the last one to be a "young" version of the main protagonist in my Shrike saga, I did this with her being older again. The proportions and angles should hopefully be better. I also experimented a bunch with giving more pores to the skin as well as many more things.

As usual, I'm very interested in getting feedback on this, it\'s by far the best way to improve. :)

MyPaint + GIMP, about 5 hours.

UPDATE: Fixed some aspects of this, thanks for the feedback!
