Jinx - Recall by Mosquito-86
Jinx - Recall
so, I once said that I never payed League of legends and that I was just mesmerized from the iconic character and their allovertheinternet skins

well, that is not a thing who is true anymore

I start play a week ago, I still am the noobiest on that game but at least I find a role that fits me (adc marksman 4 LIFE) and starts trying out some champions here and there and since I see jinx everywhere as soon I saw she was avaliable I gave her a shot, it was a lots of fun, even with my lack of ability (I still have to play a single pvp match) but the mostfunny thing was seeing her recall, I was so amazed that I almost start screaming and one of my teammeates, one of the ones who bring me in to plying it said almost as a joke

"yeah yeah, you can make a fan art out of it later, now focus to the match"

so, this is for you K

on the personal note, npthing new under the sun, the light may still be a little too intense on some point and the flesh colour may be a little too greyish but I'm getting there, little by little, her face was a challenge, I had to paint that over and over a couple thousand times before find the right expression and lighting, but it came out pretty fine if you ask me

'bout the background...

I'm not gonna lie to you, it is a screen from the game thatI found on google (not hiding behind a finger here) but there's a reason for that
this was a pic of a game-action, not something in other einvoirment, so I wanted to do the summoners rift as a background, and I wanted it to be as accurate as possible, so the plan was: take the pic, paint over it an merge it with the rest, but since I'm me and I do not have the skill for do someting like that I had to drop that project, ending just adjusting the opacity
hope it's npt seen as "cheating" or something like that

and more than anithing hope you like it!
feel free to leave a comment and if you have some times feel free to take a look to my gallery, a visit will be appreciate :)

Officers On Duty FINAL by Mosquito-86
Officers On Duty FINAL
so, here it is, the final piece

its not perfect, I would say irs really far from perfect, butaits not THAT bad, is it?
I tried to keep down the color in the background, same for the streetlights, so that the character on front of the "camera" would still be perfecly visible

I really don't have nothing else to say exept I hope you like it and that I would appreciate any comment critique or tips,
and if you have some time take a look at my gallery, you'll find the whole process behind this and maybe something else ypu like :D
Officers On Duty - let's try this again by Mosquito-86
Officers On Duty - let's try this again
sometimes enthusiasm plays against you, in the last version of this pic I was so fired up with overcolorful bases and lights and shades that the result was unacettable (and that's why I never posted the finished version) so I had to step back, take a deep breath, and start over.

first thing was the background, that orangeish sunset had no reason of existence, so it had to go, for a full night ambient this time, so I could justified the strong light on the characters
second was the building, my idea of enlight the different distance by puttind different bases add only chaos to the pic, so I just putted down a flat color and left it resting

and I have absolutley no idea how to finish it

then, since the general ambient was changed I had to change the light on the character and on the streetlight, addin a layer with the light coming from the poles
but I have to say, the jackpot was hitten with the first layer, the character and the car: basically I putted a blu layer and on to it start doing the colour with a very soft brush so that the blu layer beneath could give some natural shadow with the ambient colour, taking outh the lights for make the volumes pop out

it is still a work in in progress, I still have to figures out the buildings, and I'dlove to rid of those white spot that I do here and there on the lightest point, but it is still instinct and I have to chance it little by little 
there is a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT to learn, and I'm getting there, until that day, I hope you like what you see, I would love your impressions and tips, feel free to leave a comment, and if you have some times, take a look to my gallery

officers on duty 3 by Mosquito-86
officers on duty 3
keepnig workin on this little thing of mine I stepped on my least favourite phase of the work: bases

this should be the easyiest part because all someone have to do is to fill the lines; now it become a little more complicated when you cant pick the right color and the picture you have on scren dose not reflect the one you have in mind

plus, until this point everithing its really smooth and creative, but coming to this part I find myself spending days selecting areas with the lazo and filling them, and that block me a lot, especially because as soon I fill a zone I start thinking about how to put down light and shadows but I can since there is the rest of the thing to fill and that's something you have to do prior because shadows and light have to match the ambient, so you have to do the bases before you can go on with the work

if I have any talent whatsoever that would be easy and could be done in a blink, but since I'm me I have to work some more, hope at least you loke the (partial) result

ANYWAY, i would LOVE to have your impression tips or such, so feel free to leave a comment, and if you have some time take a look to my gallery, I wuold much appreciate it

Stefano Gorini
Artist | Student | Varied
I'm an Italian "want to be" comic artist, graduated from Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna in Comics and Illustration, where I had the chaces of working with some greatly talented people under some grat names of international comics.

At the moment I'm living in my hometown working on my skills and preparing my comics for web publishing

I do not consider myself an "artist" becouse it would implies the possession of some talent that I don't have, I just keep working pushed ahead by my stubborness
