Portraiture by CalamityChemist Portraiture by CalamityChemist
I can’t believe I’m uploading MORE Carmori, fffff—

The other night I sketched up a picture of Carmori and thought it would be cool to experiment with it. I wanted it to have a sort of surreal feel, buuut...I basically ditched any hopes of it turning out halfway through the coloring process and just went crazy on it. I don’t even know what kind of coloring this is, lol.
His color scheme is off, but on purpose. I warmed up his normal colors a LOT

I’ll admit to being disappointed with the outcome. But heyyyy, I had a crazy time experimenting and as long as I learn something from a piece, then it’s worth it.


Regardless, I hope somebody out there enjoys it!

It’s tough to make out the details on his head, so I'll put a detail shot below:

Yes, in some images he's got feathers. Usually only a couple of them, but for this one I gave him a lot.

Sunny backgrounds? From Jen? What is this I don't even... *shot*
Jen, you MUST stop being hard on yourself. >8O As you said, the important thing is you learn. There's a saying that goes, "Nothing is wasted time as long as you learn from it" Or that might've been a quote, not sure. Anyway, it's nice to see you try something more bright. I think you have good mastery over dark. xD Gorgeous detail, I must say. This definitely looks like some hard work went into him. <3

I know, right? People are just strolling through my gallery, enjoying how dim everything is, then they stumble across this and their retinas fuse. XD

Bwaaaaah it's so haaaard to not be haaaard. ;A; But thank you very much Jiosen. I'm glad that you like it. Switching things up and doing what we're uncomfortable/not good at is the only way to keep improving! <3

.......... YOU ARE TEARING ME APART, JEN!! :icontommywiseauplz: Every piece you submit, I always think "Okay, now THIS is the best of the best!" but the next one submitted I always go "No, THIS ONE is the best!" and so on and so forth and here I am doing it again! Really, dahling, this is BEAUTIFUL work. Absolutely GORGEOUS. :heart:
The colors, the textures, the lines on Carmori are done so carefully and fluidly that it is hard to resist and there is this STYLE about him that I think stems from the crosshatching done on him. It truly does look like a portrait of him and you have MASTAHD IT! :la:
Keep up the beautiful work, dude. ^^
And I'm liking the light-ish look in here. Just proves that the ghoul could look badass in the dark and the light, no matter what. xD

...oh my gosh this comment is made so much more hilarious by the fact that I saw that clip for the first time right before reading this.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, ANDI. :hug: That means so much to hear, you have no idea. You know how it is, you experiment a little bit and it's different and you're not sure if that's a GOOD thing or a BAD thing and whatnot. But I'm glad you think it's a good thing! Crosshatching has always interested me, and I figured I'd give it a shot.

Thank you again, your comments are delightfully encouraging. :heart:

I really like this, and think that the warmer colors are a nice contrast to his usual color scheme; just to see that he can also look awesome hin something less sombre. Although, the sombre look suits him extremely well, so it's difficult to say which I prefer. XD
And I must say, it's awesome how birdlike he is in this picture. I still can't get over how you make feathers look like hair and vice versa.
