BoundNotBroken by diamondwhitewolf BoundNotBroken by diamondwhitewolf
So, I was highly worried about posting this on Deviantart, due to the semi offensive pose that she's in being on her knees and having her hands tied. I worried about it all night. However, I feel that there was a certain care put into the line art and into the choice of colors. While she is on her knees, her face and attitude clearly states that she can not be broken by a simple rope around her arms. I also tried to keep the overall body form to a PG rating.

PS: If you find this offensive, please note me. I would like to know your opinion.

I cannot find this offensive, in the least bit... I see so much strength in her.

The title, coupled with the picture... it inspires so much positivity. "Never giving up, even when everything is out of reach..."

Art shouldn't be censored. This is too beautiful.

its what I was going for. I find it true that if you truly never give up and you always keep your inner strength then no mater what else in life gets taken away, you can always have that.

I appreciate your time in writing a comment :)

Love this so much! Glad you decided to post it - and I love knowing the source and motivation behind the image. I am so pleased with how the anatomy turned out as well.

And even though the ground around her isn't drawn, the way the tail helps balance her pose makes me feel that she is a perfectly plausible creature with real presence on the page.

You work shows such attention to detail, and a care for your viewers as well. Grats on this piece!!

<3 your work as always my queen.

The anatomy on her is gorgeous, especially her face and feet. :] I do think the foreshortening on her arms is a little funny though, but I'm not so hot at foreshortening myself, so...

Are you open to critique on this?

diamondwhitewolf Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2010
I am though I do realize that there are a great many things wrong with her arms. Mostly for lack of any sort of good reference... I do plan on going back and looking long and hard at that particular area again. I would also like to go back and add a bit more of a defining outline around the edges.
That said,

please go ahead ^.^

Well, I see what you're saying about the arms, but I think you did a pretty good job on those for having no reference.

It's the feet that are giving me vertigo! (the front foot, her left) I'm having trouble telling if we're looking at the top or the bottom of the hoof. The hoof itself looks like the top (no concave section inside, plus the hoof overlap) But the knuckles make me think we're looking at the bottom (the overlap and the left-most knuckle being wider than the right-most knuckle)

Trying to make sense of it, I could understand if she had three toes and we're looking at it from the side and the inside toe is hidden, but draeni only have 2 toes I think.

If you like I'll try to remember to bring my tablet in to work and red-line it for you :)
