This is a wonderful, wonderful piece. I have nothing but good things to say about it, but before I begin I’ll get my one criticism out of the way, which is the hair of She-Hulk. – Now I am a 3D and 2D artist myself, who I believe uses the same 3D program as LordCoyote, and I know how difficult hair can be. The hair cuts into the shoulders which is an issue notorious in many many aspects in this form of work – it is a pothole I’m still looking for the ladder to escape from.
Alas, it is horrid to open with such a complaint as I am in favour of this image very highly. She-Hulk is a wonderful character, and we’ve seen her both officially and unofficially appearing in so many situations, in so many attires, and with so many different physiques. And though the physique that LordCoyote has chosen is one that I am fond of, I feel like that is a case of personal preference with comic-book incarnations. – Meaning that those who feel they can damn the physical design, would only be damning from their own preference or perspective, and an artist who likes his or her own work should really please themselves primarily.
Aside from my criticism of the hair, I like it. – She-Hulk as appeared with long hair, short hair, curly, straight; but I like this slight “inflation” around the scalp. “Big hair” if you will, but it is big hair that is straight; which adds such a favourable, and really personalizing element to the character.
There are a few things a fellow 3D artist can recognize, in terms of ‘artistic arsenal’, items which cover the libraries of many of us, for example, I have a copy of the outfit she is wearing that I purchased from Daz Studio – But the texture used on this outfit is original, the reflective touch is very effective, and incredibly pleasing.
LordCoyote has avoided so many traps that I’ve seen Daz and Poser users alike falling into, and I hope he knows I respect this very highly. Because one of the first things I see is shadow. It may seem obvious to so many people, but such a severe neglect or misuse of this tool exists in so many people, but it’s power is so limitless if it’s paid attention to; which certainly stands for this image.
Many people (and sometimes the artists too) think that Daz or Poser work is “plug in a play”, and indeed it is, but there is a difference between the “plug in and players” and the people who actually know what they’re doing, often performing so well that they doubt their own ability due to how easy Daz Studio makes their work to do; when in fact the program makes it simple, but you still need the skill to do it well. – Of course I’m saying this here because LordCoyote does it very well.
There are many “plug in and players” of these programs, and it is such a treat when a skilled individual showcases their work, which is why I felt so compelled to review this image.
It has the commenters commenting what I am thinking: “Who is she fighting?” – “Is there going to be an image series of the fight?” – And I believe it conjures that old phrase “Always leave them wanting more” – which is the well-known success of telling a story.
With such a striking image, I cannot help but rate vision highly, the attire chosen is great, the pose is fantastic, the shadow casted on her is both subtle and heavy at the same time – that itself is an art! – The look of She-Hulk’s face is so very intense assisted with the shadows, if this image was from the POV of the other fighter, it looked like Hulk’s opponent is about to get mangled like Ted Haggard’s career.
I felt like I was drop-kicking my own belly giving this image a mediocre rating or anything ever; but I had to consider the fact that it was she-hulk. As awesome as she is, she is not an O.C, so I had to move this category to a 50% rating, effectively neutralizing it. – But I snuck in an extra star because I really like this image. And despite the unoriginality of the core character, I liked what she was doing. But then I take into account that the event too is fairly common (which I’m sure the artist would agree with me on), but when I weigh the pros and cons, I find myself inspired by the usage of She-Hulk (Technically and atmospherically), so I simply cannot leave the rating neutral.
I’m already prepared to praise the technique to high heavens. This LordCoyote obviously knows what he’s doing, and probably doesn’t actually need a critique, in fact, speaking in this critique you’ll notice that I’m talking to others; leaving my praise for this piece something that I think people should see. I’m not saying with 3D work “This is how it is done.”, but from my personal perspective, I believe this is how I prefer it should be done.
The impact of this image is all in She-Hulks eyes. – The degree of how hard she looks like she’s about to punch you is how hard the impact of this image is. – Totally, and utterly wonderful image from the second you lay eyes on it.
I’d vote LordCoyote as one of the higher forces in this niche of 3D artwork, and I hope readers of this critique will visit him and browse his works.
This is very nice Artwork. Well done. The look in her eyes is very well . Looks like that she will frighten her opponent. The pose says also, I WILL BEAT YOU. The crowd in the backround is well done, a good mix between heroines and normal visitors that watch the match. You have put a lot off nice details in this pic. The gold applications on the bikini , the holes in the gloves are nice and gives the pic a realistic look. Also the rust on the cornerpost . Go on with this stile, i would love to see more off this.
