Requiem 2004 by Leonor Requiem 2004 by Leonor
This one has been up on galleries before. It's an original character, all vectors drawn in Corel Draw 9 with a mouse.

Main references were a custom morphed head from Poser, a clay head and probably some photos for the lips.

Didn't his name used to be Requiem? I kind of preferred it...

Love your art, and your character design :)

I was a fan of yours on Elfwood, years ago! I added one of the Requiem pictures to an Elfwood tour :)

Well, don't know if I could add anything to what *mikabots has very eloquently said... you've done such a great job on this one! :clap: I love the facial expression, there's such intensity there and a vulnerability as well... the freckles are icing on the cake :yum: :+favlove:

Thanks. Not one I really like to look at anymore, because I can see when I went wrong - something a bit Kate Moss about his eyes... I agree on the freckles. :D

I really like the color scheme, and I think his grey skin makes the colors stand out even more. It looks like you spent a lot of time on the details, like his zipper and whatnot. I think that gives it a really surreal feeling, because you have these cute realistic freckles with these other fantasy elements. The anatomy looks spot on, too. To me it's not missing anything, sorry I couldn't find anything to critique.

Thanks for your kind and detailed comment. You sure his eyes don't look too far apart? I tend to be very picky with my old works. :)

Hm...

They do look like they could be wider than the standard one eyes length apart if I was actually looking at him head on, but with this angle, It doesn't seem off to me. I like unique proportions though, so my opinion is biased =)

Thanks. I call it a headpiece, it's more fashion than protection. :)

This one stands out because of the backgorund. Very fitting, I sugest you do something similar for the other characters as well. The only things I dont like are the lips. They just seem unatural, not in size, but texture and lighting. Nice piece though.

Thanks, it was easy to think of a background for this one because of the rust theme this character suggests. I got lazy with the others. The lips are meant to have chrome lipstick, but perhaps the texture I achieved doesn't suggest that very well.

I love the character design! The lips look amazing, and so does the design on the head.

Technically that looks near perfect. Very smooooth and just the right level of detail to keep that classic cartoon vector style without trying to be too photorealistic.

I like the character design too btw ;)
