My Ring Wraith.
Might be a bit premature but I'm calling this final, since I'm gonna be off soon and I won't have time to hand it in before the deadline don't submit it now.
I might update it later though.
WIP for those interested: http://img139.imageshack.us/img139/4438/ringwraithwipub8.gif

22 colours.

Okay, right. So after much debate I have decided to keep the old one. Since half of you seem to like this and the other half the other. And personally, I enjoy this one more.

 Thanks mate!

Theoden (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/28/2013 14:09

Wow, this is mind blowing.

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 1/14/2008 07:28
Thanks Cure. I agree that he looks a bit stiff. But I kinda think it suits him.

Jal: Thanks

Nvision: Yeah, before it had even cartoonier (Is that a word? If not, it is now!) colours.

Majestic Fox: Thanks mate :)

Baddassbitch:  Thanks alot

Miscdude: Well, arent nazguls cloaked figures that sometimes go to strange forests? :P

Ilkke: i'm honoured :D thanks

Stylistically great, good colors, but the boring pose and stiff arms bother me.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/13/2008 09:55
oh, it is way better this way. Its a great, great pixel.

nvision (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 1/13/2008 08:46
Very beautiful palette, and a well executed impressionistic/painterly style.  There's a softness to this that makes him look a little more sad or pitiful, rather than evil.

Majestic Fox (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 1/13/2008 06:50

Incredible! Looks just like a painting!

Badassbill (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 1/10/2008 22:48
Looks miles better now. Great job.

miscdude (Level 1 Private) @ 1/9/2008 21:42
this is really great. i fav'd it a while ago but i feel like commenting now, lol.
I think that the palette is just awesome, blends well, and looks good on the eyes.
i don't really see it as a ring-wraith, more of a hidden cloaked figure in some strange forest, but its still great, and your style has always been rather fun to look at and study. ^^

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/9/2008 11:54
Wonderful palette.

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 1/7/2008 09:07
Thanks for all the repsonses. I finaly decided to go with the old one since I thought it looked much more stylized and appealing. The other robes were more realistic, but not very apealing.
So there you have it :)
Why are the hands too small though? They should measure to normal sized hands. (Perhaps you got confused and thought his hands are fuly in sight, While actually only the fingertips come from under the robe.)

Miumau0 (Level 6 Made) @ 1/7/2008 05:01
amazing. Lovely bg. fav'd.

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 1/6/2008 23:06
I love the robe,but I really dont like the hands,they seem so small.

Scruffs (Level 7 Assassin) @ 1/6/2008 22:47

the folds are kinda confusing, they seem improvised, but nevertheless very appealing.  Did i mention the colours are pure sex?


DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 1/6/2008 20:30
Dude. Opacus. Absolutely positively best work ever. I'm amazed, you've improved so much and here you make something that's so stylish and wonderful. This is a perfect example of what hard work can bring you too.

DevonR (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/6/2008 17:38
Is it just me or does the hood seem a bit small? (in contrast to the rest of the robe)

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/6/2008 15:02
Background is beautiful, but i like robe front from the last stage of wip much more. All it needs to define sleeves part.=)

Rare Cabbage (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/6/2008 14:31
Love the colors and the shading of the robe, but there is something with the hood I can't put my finger on.

Equilibrix (Level 5 Captain) @ 1/6/2008 14:17
Much, much better I think! The robe looks much more realistic now, but there's still something not quite right... I can't tell what, maybe I will find out later. And he looks a little bit fat Perhaps that's it.

Doomcreator0 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/6/2008 12:51
Yes. I think that the black area should be extended more. It give sthe impression that he has a small head on a big body. Perhaps even enlongate the top of the hood.

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 1/6/2008 12:42
Alright, you lot've convinced me. I'll completely rework the wraith (Except the head.)
I'll try to stay awake a little longer and finish it.

Bob_Jones (Level 2 Peon) @ 1/6/2008 12:35
I think the wraith needs to be completely reworked. the way the fabric falls is supposed to show what is under it and in this case it looks like a thick blanket thrown over a bunch of pillows.
The background looks great though.

leel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 1/6/2008 12:29
Yeah I agree - while the composition looks awesome, getting technical with the fabric - the way it folds doesn't make a lot of sense.  

But I don't think people voting will get very technical - the colors are ace! Way to go :)

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 1/6/2008 12:17
Could you elaborate why?

Doomcreator0 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/6/2008 12:16
I think it's really good. However The body compared to the hood is off.

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 1/6/2008 12:13
You have some good points there. I did a quick attempt to fix it. I might clean it up a bit more later. But, I added more shadows  and more highlights.

Ceddo: That was intetnional. I could make the colours all cartoony and teletubby like. But it's a Nazgul. An evil ghost wraith. I think the colours need to be faded, otherwise the atmosphere would be ruined.

Equilibrix (Level 5 Captain) @ 1/6/2008 11:56
Wow, great colors! I love the palette and the background, very cool! But I think the folds on the wraith's robe don't look very realistic. They look rather flat, there should be more shadows and highlights at the same time.. Only the folds directly beneath the hood look realistic, the ones on the arms and on the rest of the body don't.. But the colors, oh man! Your color choice is amazing!

ceddo (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 1/6/2008 11:53
Colors are a tad too faded for my taste, but still looks great!
