Lord Ghirahim by Whitestar1802 Lord Ghirahim by Whitestar1802
Been playing Skyward sword lately, and I gotta say Ghirahim's an awesome villain. Hopefully I can paint Zelda and Link too. :D

I tried to create colors similar to the official art. I'm happy with everything except how the pixel/diamonds turned out. I'll need to work on that.

Enjoy. :)

I really liked this! The colors pop, and the pose is "fabulous". ;)

I LOVE that background, really nicely done! God, I just love all the warm colors you used in this, and the splash of cool colors on it really makes it pop!

I like how you drew his cloak dissolving, I personally could never have enough patience to do that, but I might, one day. :XD:

However, there are few things that I want to nit-pick.

I think the coloring on him could use a little bit of work. it looks a bit messy. Not smooth, and it doesn't fit all that well in the piece.

I also think you should have added more shadows and highlights to make Ghirahim pop out more from the peice. He looks kind of bland in here.

There's also his shoulder, it seems as if it doesn't exist. It's way too small. Male anatomy requires broader shoulders, female anatomy is more for smaller, flowing shoulders. You should have defined his shoulder a little bit more. I hope I'm making sense. :XD:;

The way you made his cape flipping in the front, I am in love with that, lol. :heart:

I think his arms are a little bit too long, however. I'd expect to see those kind of arms on Impa, lol. But still, it's not too noticeable.

I think his face is too broad. And there aren't enough tones of shading and highlights on it to distinguish his features.

His ear also looks a little weird, as if it's not really connected the right way to his head.

Great job on the sword, I'm really loving it! No complaints there and the shading on it, it's perfect imo.

And I love the particles around him as his cloak is disappearing, really nice job!

All in all, a really great peice, you just need to work a little bit more on anatomy and shading. <3

The sword wielding a sword. He was pretty bauss in Skyward Sword for only being Demise's weapon.
