Archeology girl by algenpfleger Archeology girl by algenpfleger
Some commercial work I did for Legends of the Cryptids.

I'm trying to loosen up my brushwork a little bit these days, it's working fairly well in the studies but bringing it over to work that's all from imagination is tricky.

By the way, check out my tumblr! I'm posting a bunch of new studies and sketches there. algenpfleger.tumblr.com/

I'm also working on some personal things that I will share soon :3

Die Hüfte ist zu schmal. Auch wenn ich glaube, dass es gezwungenermaßen so ist, damit ihre Tasche noch drauf passt, aber das fällt leider zu sehr auf.

Der Rest ist aber wie immer ein Augenschmaus. (xD geiles Wort)

Love the way you used light in this piece; on her face and the reflections on the sword. Great piece! :)

Why is she wearing so little clothing? She's an archaeologist.

It's really cool to see you experimenting with rougher brushstrokes.  I love your clean and sharp pieces, but sometimes I find myself wondering what they would look like with a little bit more roughness to them, I feel like sometimes rough brush strokes can express emotions that are a bit more "raw."   I suppose it's all about balance though, and this is something I'm trying to find with my own work as well.  

Your art is amazing,  and your tutorials have been very helpful, please keep doing what you do. I know it makes a difference in people's lives, it has in mine. : )

There are similar swords stabbed into the skeletons in the background. Not sure if that is a good idea for her or not.

Excalibur was actually ON the rock and not INSIDE the rock... x'D
I think you should have done the hips a bit bigger :3
But this is a great work ^^

You know, that hips, looks like you were afraid to reach the end of the paper ^^

This is great. I think she went through a lot of danger, tons of traps, and she finally is there, and the sword is unprotected, but there must be something dangerous wating, and she is like "Can i get it, what's the trick? Is is safe? What's that noise?"

I love the drawing, but I happen to be an archaeology girl, and I can tell you, this is not what it's like :p. Treasure hunter girl would be more appropriate.

Haha, i get your point, but i think in fantasy worlds that would be it. Civilizations wouldn't disapear without an epic story as background.

superp lightning and scene!

only thing which disturbed me (just by looking at it) the girl looked somewhat unnaturally..  Later I think I found my reason, the hips and the legs dont fit to well together. maybe a  bit larger hips for me.
Just my humble opinion ;-)

The picture itself is awesome work!

Ja schön gerendert, aber bei der Hüfte hast du keinen Bock mehr gehabt, oder? Find ich anatomisch schon ziemlich schlecht und eher ungewohnt von dir.
Ihr Gesicht ist auch ziemlich flach, und ich kann aus dem Bild nicht erschließen, was mit dem Schwert gerade passiert (schwebt es? hat sie es fallen lassen? Dann passt aber die Pose nicht wirklich dazu)


Kanns nicht verübeln, bei commercial works (und vor allem wenn sie dann noch schlecht bezahlt sind)

Very beautiful, love the coloring, but if I may, she is incredibly long. Her stomach especially. Might wanna check that next time, but great work none-the-less. C':

Archeology girl looks a little underdressed. You'd never catch Indiana Jones in those shorts.
