The Daughter of the East by niji707 The Daughter of the East by niji707
Illustration for the book "Gabriel e la figlia dell'imperatore d'oriente" (Gabriel and the daughter of the Emperor of the East) by Mauro Fantini... and this is... well, not Gabriel.
^^; I wanted to title it "The Daughter of the Emperor of the East", with no great imagination, but it was too long :P

I hope you like my latest baby... and that there are no archers in there. :P

B-bellissima, Francy!!! :wow:
Adoro lo sfondo, la foresta, il suo volto.... TUTTO.. Amo tutto di questo lavoro!!!! :love: :wow:

Io sono senza parole... Ogni volta che posti qualcosa di nuovo qui, si nota tantissimo ogni miglioramento che fai.... Ricordo i primi tentativi di colore digitale, cui sei tanto affezionata.... Che già erano bellissimi, ma ora, stanno diventando sempre più... Vivi... non so che parole giusta usare... ^^;
Continua così!!!! :eager: :love:

sono davvero contenta che ti piaccia... e anche che mi consideri migliorata!!
in realtà sono in un periodo in cui sono un po' bloccata, non so bene che strada prendere... non so se hai presente... ci sono così tante cose da provare, così tante influenze, così tanti stili che... mi blocco un po'.
Ma spero di riuscire a fare presto qualcosa di semplice con cui rilassarmi e lasciare che vada come vada.... :P

che dire? è semplicemente perfetta... poi da ex arciere (dilettante) apprezzo molto il realismo della posa e la tensione dell'arco.... Bravissima, come al solito :D

P.s. sinceramente trovo il titolo dell'immagine più evocativo di quello del libro... la figlia dell'imperatore dell'Est mi da la sensazione di personaggio secondario :/ invece la figlia dell'est... bé lo trovo più incisivo :D

Well, first of all, this is excellent. Very well done!

How do you do this? Did someone pose for you? Did you base it on another image? The perspective is perfect, please tell me you had a model to work with and that you didn't just create this out of thin air.
The girl's face is beautiful. Surely it is based on someone real, someone you know...

Thank you very much! :heart:
I posed for myself :) I bought a cheap bow and asked my boyfriend to shoot a lot of pics for reference, I would not be able to imagine the perspective of the arms without reference.
The face is not based on someone in particular... I collected a lot of photos of oriental girls with the feeling I was searching for, and studied them, but I tried to create a totally new face.

Well, that's good to know!
Have you ever heard of camera lucida? And how the Renaissance artists used it in their painting?
BTW, I have a spell checking thing built in here and would like to point out to you and the world that I spelled "Renaissance" correctly on the very first try!

:iconniji707:
niji707 Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2011   Digital Artist
:D congrats for spelling it right, it's a tricky word! :P
I think I saw a thing like "camera lucida" in a museum... actually I don't know if it was the very same item, the one I saw was projecting the scene out of the window on a wall for the artist to paint, all with mirrors. Quite impressive!
But... well, I don't think it should be very fun. I mean, it's ok for speeding up boring backgrounds, but I like a bit of improvisation :D

You're thinking of the right thing, precisely.
I read a great book about this, and you can get an idea of the book here: [link]

I have to say I fail to see the problem if great artists have used the aid of optical devices. I mean... their paintings are great for something that is more than the simple "correct perspective" or anything the devices may have helped them for. What do you think about this matter?
