Portraits

Post by silverdragonams » Fri Mar 16, 2007 2:06 am

So this is my first attempt at doing art of any kind on a computer (minus a bit of photo editing). Don't laugh too hard :wink:

I think thats pretty good, though I always envisioned them as a little bit older looking for some reason.

What program did you use for that?

I love it! Totally Tris(tran) and Sara. *sigh* Another wonderful set of portraits that just leave me feeling talentless. :) Very impressive, Miss Amanda!

Daz|Studio (cause I'm too cheap to buy Poser)
I think thats pretty good, though I always envisioned them as a little bit older looking for some reason.
Answer #1: I couldn't get them to look older in Daz|Studio without making them look goofy. I should try to go back over them in a regular picture editor, but GIMP makes my head hurt and I refuse to buy Photoshop (see above).

Answer #2: Both Tris and Sara were fairly young for half-elves when they settled in Ysgard. Sara was 30ish, and Tris was 50ish. Sara is now in her 90s (As near as I can figure) and Tris is a little younger, but the ageing process on Ysgard is very slow, so they wouldn't look much older than when they arrived.

Very impressive, Miss Amanda
Thanks! :oops:

And there's no way to make Sara's arms look less anorexic?

Other than that (and Tris' "I just ate a busload of children" smile), everything's good! :D

I should play with that a bit, though she is a 90lb weakling without her buffs :wink:

hahaha! Thanks! The cheesy smile is intentional, the whole scene is part of a running joke between Psye and I about how Tris is almost always walking just behind Sara. The tenative title is "What?! I'm just guarding the rear!"
