taste of a poison paradise by serebronaga taste of a poison paradise by serebronaga
For a contest @ Seventh Sanctum

My prompt from the 'General Character Generator: Regular - Female':
This woman puts you in mind of a prowling alligator. She has wide gray eyes that are like two pieces of steel. Her fine, straight, neck-length hair is the color of rich cream, and is worn in an artistic style. She is short and has a wide-hipped build. Her skin is china-white. She has a small mouth. Her wardrobe is complicated.

Obviously to me, complicated means add details like black squigglies on the clothes.

I did three, but this was the best of those, so this is the only one I scanned.
Flat colours, as those looked better. Coloured in openCanvas 3.5+
Lol, so hard-pressed to add something new to my gallery instead of just to scraps I put this here. Now it'll spur me onto making something worth leaving on my front page :P I'm a smart one...

And the contest is over - so I can comment

THE GOOD:
Good handling of the description.
The costume is MARVELOUS. It really makes the images work.
There's a definite sense of character - and mystery.


TO IMPROVE:
Overall, it's pretty good. There is a bit of flatness to the image, but that may be stylized. The "alligator" aspect didn't quite come through, but that's pretty metaphorcial as it is.

I didn't really know how to show 'prowling', actually. Usually when I see alligators, I notice the fact that they tend to sit there with their mouths open staring at things, waiting for prey to come to it.
