Ashley Williams by Jacinthe Ashley Williams by Jacinthe
Another one done for last year's Phoenix Comicon (just recently updated to be a bit less fugly). How could you not enjoy adding a tough yet attractive, religious, almost-speciesist gal into the mix? Alone she may not stand out, but next to the bizarre and exotic characters in the cast she adds perspective and depth.

Ms. Williams belongs, of course, to BioWare.

EDIT: Playing with a new method of colouring and trying out a colour scheme. Wiggled dat neck a bit. Previous version can be seen here: [link]

beautiful shading~
though her pose looks really awkward an uncomfortable imo..
the colors are so beautiful, but gosh, the pose makes her look kinda broken.
I do love all the details you added, though.

This is an amazing picture, no doubt, you've got incredible skill and talent when it comes to painting (including all those nitpicky details on the guns WOW!)

My only critique would be that Ash is just... posed a little weird? Her arched back and legs spread apart look a bit awkward, what more toting two guns in her hand ;~; Perhaps a more natural pose or one that's more soldier like would've been appropriate? Just a suggestion, of course ; w;

Regardless though, this is still a pretty fantastic drawing, as is the others in your gallery :3 ♥

Haha aww, that's how my own brow furrows (literal butt-face, I think), but I made it a little more "typical" in the latest version. Thanks for pointing that out. ;)

This is amazing. What is your process for creating a character like this? Do you just open up photoshop and paint? Or do you go through many planning stages, such as silhouettes, thumbnails, character concepts, color concepts, etc?

Jacinthe Featured By Owner May 27, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I'm not very good at planning, so I usually just get in Photoshop and sketch. For fan art I definitely have lots of references around, but the actual process is very "revise as you go" rather than color concepts and thumbnails.

A couple of things I do a lot in the sketch phase are, first, the lasso tool + free transform (warp). I push, pull, and rotate bits of a very hideous sketch until I get the body parts going the way I want. Then for the lines I tend to start out big and hairy (literally--I am not one of those "single stroke of confidence" line-artists!) and then pare away at the line with the eraser to make it smooth, get the curve just so, and create line weight. It's part of why I work so darn slow, and I don't think it's necessarily the best way to work, but it's how I do for now! Hopefully someday I will speed things up. =)

For colors I do have a loose palette to start with, something I want to do and think will be nice, then play with levels, saturation, and selective color many times throughout the process.

I hope that's somehow helpful! Thanks so much for your kind comment. :thanks:

Jacinthe Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, for sure. I had her more tan in the original but wanted to try a more washed out/purple palette and it kind of cancels out her gold skin. More of an artistic decision than accurate, agreed. :nod:
