Against all odds by avisnocturna Against all odds by avisnocturna
This is the first personal piece that I didn't draw for any challange for... I think over 3 years? Only done contest work or work-work.
It took some time to finish, I changed the whole picture quite a bit during the whole process and kept working on it whenever I had time between commissioned work. And now I think it's done.

More work is in progress :)

(And no, the title has nothing to do with any song you might think of ;) )

Wow das bild sieht super aus! Ich weiß gar nicht, was mir am Besten gefällt...
Die Spiegelung und der Glanz der Rüstung ist perfekt geworden, die ganzen Deteils im Vorder und Hintergrund, an den Blumen, dem Kettenhemd und der Mauer... der Lichteinfall auch auf dem Mädel und natürlich die Posen :la:
Ich finde auch die Aufteilung in Vorder-, Mittel- und Hintergrund super und insgesamt die Elemente sehr gelungen.
Hat das Bild eine geschichte?

Dankeschön :D
Wie schon unten erklärt, habe ich meistens keine bestimmte Geschichte im Kopf. Mehr eine Szene oder Aktion. Dann fane ich an das zu malen und füge immer mehr Elemente hinzu, die diese Aktion zu einer Geschichte machen könnten. Ich lasse das ganze dann mehr oder weniger offen, sodass der Betrachter seine eigene Geschichte hineini interpretieren kann :)

Hey, nice work there.
Especially the armor and the clothes look amazing.

If I should criticize on something it would propably be the perspective. Throughout the picture it looks a bit inconsistent.
The bricks in the front are seen from above up to a point, while the windows in the back are already seen from below.
I dont know about medieval architecture but are the bricks supposed to be different in size ?

Still, a very nice piece.

Thanks a lot! Yeah, that could be true. As mentioned I changed the whole picture, especially the background quite a bit during the process. Usually I start with laying out a perspective grid and making up size relationships. But as I changed the background last minute I kinda forgot to do this. Reminds me that I always should plan a picture first :)

Those refelctions on the armor is great! And I really like that girl. Is there a specific story behind the picture?

Thank you!
Well, there's no specific story. When I start a picture I always have something like an action in mind, something that's happening. While I develop the composition and the picture further I add more and more elements that could tell a story. I like it when people think make up their own story while looking at my pitures :)

Oh okay thank you for the reply :)
I just wondered because the girl (woman) looked somehow "specific", like someone you thought more about.
But then I can just admire your process of imagination ^^

Thank you! I like my palette, too, feels like spring and summer that I really miss when I look outside of my window :(
