Joana by TheShock Joana by TheShock
Hi, this is my last painting with Krita software.
I wanted to paint a character for a a book separator and started to play with some brushtrokes and shapes. then a crazy idea appears.. Joan of arc.
First i thought about Joana of Arc but the image and idea was changing while i was painting. This woman is older than 19 and the armour is a bit Sci-fi with a special stonish-metal sword. So i left the idea but kept the name.

It was designed to be printed on A4 and with text on the blank spaces. As a book cover. I am studying how to improve my narrative language wich is one my weakness . I want to focus the attention on the Meditative girl. so i put lot of attention to the edges and blurred parts , like somekind of Depth of field but not so precise. It is more an Esthetic blur

Very beautiful painting ! :) I really love the way you handled the yellow light emanating from the sword on the armor, must have been hard to achieve convincingly ! Also, I'm totally fond of the halo around her head :D

Although when it comes to the composition, I think it's a little bit static due to the fact that the character fills the left half of the image and that there is nothing to balance her in the right side. As a result, the image looks like it's being split in two. It would have benefit of a more centered or diagonal placement or a secondary focal point in the right part, among other ideas.

Anyway, I'm glad to see a new painting of yours, it's been a while, hope you'll post some more in near future :D

Thanks a lot for your critique and compliment. i like when comments give me useful feedback. I agree with you about composition, You can´t see the thing that is on the right side . It is a project as a bookcover so the title and a stripe is on the right side. But you are right. if you don´t see, the compo seems to be wrong. I take note.

And Yes i hope to be more active ;)

I can see how the stripe would affect the final aspect indeed ! :) Sorry, I didn't know ^^

Just two questions, please:

1)
How long it took (start to finish)?

2)
To improve
techniques used in this work, do you recommend some book or tutorial?

Regards!

about 12 hours. Not as fast as a concept design. I recommend obviously my own DVD which was done to explain how to paint specially with Krita. It is about 5 hours of useful training. you can order it here krita.org/item/214-releasing-t…

And of course learn the fundamentals. A book that i like a lot is from James Gurney. Color and light. www.amazon.com/Color-Light-Gui…
