Barrows Resurrected by n00brevolution Barrows Resurrected by n00brevolution
Well, here is my well anticipated A3 version of Mother Barrows. It's actually taken me an awefully long time to do because of how slack I have been with other things.

I can't say that I personally like this character as much as Father Barrows though I like to do things in pairs.

I'll be sure to continue doing A3 pieces though I think I'll be taking break for a while.

Hope you like it!

I think I may have overdone the contrast in this one a little too much as parts of it are really dark now - but it was only because otherwise the wings still wouldn't show up properly.

Well, such dark contrast often adds to the mood of pictures, creating a bit of mystery about the character when hiding details in shadow. For example, think of sillhouette art. The fully black figures that are portrayed that way capture one's attention, because the draw the imagination to fill in those details, and it just fascinates them even more : )

Thank you! I only ever use HB pencils in all my Barrows characters; I use HB because it has reasonable density and the lead is hard enough for doing very thin and detailed things.

Thank, I really appreciate it! Uh, I have considered charcoal, but I could never use it to do something nearly as detailed, plus I don't really like the smudges it makes.

I suppose if you really want to, I don't mind you drawing your own Barrows characters, just make sure you let me have a look at them if you do; I'm quite interested what you could come up with. :) And if you are, make sure you make them all look wartorn and covered in scars, and give them some wings too. XD

Thanks dude! ill take in mind of all those key design within the barrow said(going to write them down on my ipod touch after a few secounds its in my ipod) the first could either be a barrow version of a grim reaper or a juggernaught( dragon style)

Oh I really like Mother Barrows design, and you shaded in those feathers (ferns?) really well. I particularly like the mask design :)

Haha, thank you! I admit that I do have a tendency to elaborate a little too much sometimes; there's so much armour that you can't make out the basic figure.

oh, no no, I think it's REALLY great, even if I'm confused. Which is probably just because I don't know what your Barrows series is about, heh.

It's not quite a "series", I'd call it a concept of characters.

Haha, I doubt it, even though the concept is original, I may just end up making them into a series of characters that could fit into a story after all.

I personaly can't say I have "mastered" pencil rendering, though a good five or so years really comes a long way.
