Fire Mage by d3fect Fire Mage by d3fect

Let us start!

Since me being a huge fan of the element, the character in this picture totally fits the power of FIRE!

Her skin is very bright, and reflects the orange color of the flames, even on her clothes.

Speaking of her clothes, they are very well drawn, the armor looks almost real, and I like that red cloth you added under her neck, symbolizing that she IS a fire mage.

I think the black hair fits her personality, it blends into the dark smoke that covers the entire picture, which adds to the destructiveness of the heat.

The last part I like is that, she is looking at YOU. So whoever YOU are in the picture, you better run away! =D
What do you think?

I love how you made the fire just suggested in the picture, but it feels really hot.

Fantasy, Mages, Fire~! :heart: :heart: LOVE :heart: :heart:
This is a fantastic piece. The textures, effects and lighten you used makes it very powerful. I almost want to touch the fire cause it is so bright; this gives off a very warm, protective feeling. She seems like a determined type of mage.
Her armor is wonderful! Good Job!

Wow! Awesome drawing. I love your attention to detail: The shades in the fire, how her skin and clothes glow in the flame, and the fierce expression on her face. I like how the colours are slightly blurry, it looks like a heat haze.

The only thing that I could critique is the background. I'm having a hard time figuring out the placement of the architectural details, and the depth could be more convincing. It looks almost like you're using one-point perspective for the columns and arches...if that's true, the two arches on the left are too similar in width; they don't recede. Another thing that I don't understand is how close the girl is to the columns. I assume she is fairly close (the column on the left is so near that it extends past the border of the page...or at least it looks like it does, through the haze.) If this is true, a little more detail on the closest column would add depth.

Wow, this looks amazing!! The colors and the dynamism together create a piece that really comes alive :)

I especially like how you paid attention to the lighting from the fire on her face and clothes--those tiny touches pull the whole piece together very nicely.

Your piece is so well done, I can't say I have many critiques. I noticed in your WIP that she does have hands, but they kind of disappear in this version: I understand that the fire would be concentrated there, but it would be nice to lower the opacity around her hands a bit so we could see her fingers at work (and they were posed really nicely in the initial stages). Also, her left should is a bit too squished into her body in comparison to the right shoulder--anatomically speaking, the shoulder furthest from the viewer would look smaller, while the one closest would appear larger. I think if you pulled out that left shoulder a bit, she'd look a bit more balanced.

Excellent job with the fire, especially, which is not easy to paint at all. I rather liked the blue you had in the WIP, but that's personal preference more than anything :) Have you thought about adding some smoke to balance out the fire and create more atmosphere?

Keep up the great work!!

You have pointed out some things well, and you are absolutely right about them. I've done some changes on the image, however. The left shoulder is a bit bigger and there's some smoke on the scene now. I will do more changes soon and draw her hands maybe, but not tonight :D Thank you for the comment / critique BTW, you really helped me to improve this one.

The fire looks pretty awesome, it has a fierce and rugged texture to it that lends a gritty feel that fits with her expression. Nice work on the warm to cool color ratio too, it makes her pop with all the cooler colors around her head.
