SGA Wraith male by Taena-Doman SGA Wraith male by Taena-Doman
This Wraith is my OC. I did not use a reference, because I wanted to paint a face, which is really unknown to me. I chose a natural looking daylight to create also almost natural lighting effects on the face.

Thank you very much for your comments and faves.:hug: Especially your opinion helps me really much. I know he is still not well painted...the hairline, the hairs and lips are not correct. First I wantend to change this, but I've made the experience after a picture is finished too much correction can more destroy than improve something. But I keep in mind what you said and I'm happy to use your opinions in the future.
Btw, I have a new computer monitor...:XD:

My Paint, Picture Publisher.

(C) SGA and the Wraith belong to MGM, my art to me.

LOL he reminds me a bit Dave too :D but I think it's because of the goatee. At second sight he is not Dave sure :)
He is a "good wraith", I mean he have that intimidating expression on his face like wraith in general.

The one thing I see is the hair, it's good but it could be more realistic by just adding a bit more dark, like "shadows" to the outer lines....
I like his clothing. That is a challenge for me every time I try, and you can do a good job on it :)

I have tried to have not a special Wraith in mind.:giggle:

I'm really glad to hear, that I was able to capture this typical Wraith expression...

Yes, white Wraith hair..., I think the best is to grab all the images showing the Wraith in natural daylight.:)

Well, that hair thing..... that is a quite hard thing I know..... because we can see wraith in EVERY lighting :D really. Blue, purple, yellow, green....shadows.....but normal daylight.....it's very rare :)

If you see this pic for example (because of the "normal" daylight [link] it has a medium contrast between hair and clothing because of the frontal ligh and hair looks like more pale.
(btw I prefer to see wraith in "normal" lights, they're quite interesting, and seeing this linked pic in full view: i'm so curious about the feeling of that skin, brrrr.... :flirty: :D )

Thank you for the link. This side is just stunning, with all the amazing images of breathtaken Wraith!:love:

Yes, the faces look so differnt in various light conditions. Comes the light from above, the bones on the forehead, above the eyes and on the cheeks are more highlighted. Craig and the other hunters are good example.
And here, (I think it is Penny) "Outsiders" [link]

:D:D His skin is more bluish.

Yes, that I notice everytime, if I get a bit jealous looking at one of my friends.:XD: I mean he is blonde, but his skin gets very dark under the sun, while I'm pale as ghost.:lol:

Whether Wraith can get a sunburn? Possibly not, because of their perfect healing abilities.

Ce wraith, est magnifique il me fait penser un peu à Dave. Je trouve moi aussi que ces lèvres sont trop claires mais son regard est magique, il est très intense, j'aime beaucoup, comme chacune de tes oeuvres.:hug:

Thank you very much.:hug: I first thought to darken his lips, but generally after a picture is finished I actually never change something, because this could mostly be a failure...well, this was my experience.:XD: But for the future I keep in mind what you said, thank you very much for your opinion...it really helps.

Merci beaucoup. :hug: J'ai d'abord pensé à assombrir ses lèvres, mais généralement après un tableau est fini, je n'ai jamais réellement changer quelque chose, parce que cela pourrait surtout être un échec ... eh bien, c'était mon expérience.:XD: Mais pour l'avenir je garde à l'esprit ce que vous avez dit, je vous remercie beaucoup pour votre avis ... ça aide vraiment.

Good one, especially for a pic without reference. I really like the tattoo, the intense look in his eyes and the way the sky's colours reflect on his forehead. :)

I hope you don't mind some meant-to-be-constructive critique, but I think you should try playing around with colours a bit. The similar tones on his lips and face make his mouth melt into the rest of his face. A person's lips are usually darker than his face, and if the two colours are too close in volume, it makes his mouth "disappear".

Another thing you should consider: putting some darker shadows in the hair. It would give it more "weight", make it look more realistic.

And you comment is very helpful, I really appreciate it. Another person can see other details as the one who painted a picture.:):)

I'm really glad that you share your opinion about the lips and hair, because I know something is not correct in the picture, but I was not able to describe it. Yes, I'm a bit too careful with the color of the lips, because I fear they could look too artificially if their color is too different compared to the other parts of the face. Especially male lips.
For the future I'll darken them more, use other colors in combination with colors of the face.

Danke:hug:
Er ist ein völlig anderer Charakter. Ich startete ganz einfach mit der allgemeinen Regel für Gesichstproportionen und baute nach und nach sein Gesicht auf. Während dieses Prozesses sah er teilweise so merkwürdig aus :XD:
Ziel war auf alle Fälle ein natürlich wirkendes Wraithgesicht zu malen, was mir nicht bekannt ist.:XD:

He looks like he could be related to Dave in the eyes and Tommy in the chin and mouth - a son a Queen would be proud of. Nice vision!
