… Holding my breath for far too long.
~45 min sketch of Vince and Airika. Title from the chorus of Absolute Religion by Colony 5.
A new still life appears! This one was a long slog to get through all that little detail in the snowflakes, but it was fun. I tried something new with blurring to try to get a sense of depth, but I don’t know how I feel about it. An unblurred finished version is at the end. It’s been a little quiet around here thanks to a sudden renewed interest in gaming. 🙂
You can tell this is when they first meet because Airika’s still got her dark real world makeup and her shirt tucked in from having come here straight from school. He’s got his DIY adventurer armor and cheapy sword.
I just noticed I never drew her backpack. 😀
Mele’feren is basically a fortress surrounded by mountains on all sides, reachable only by navigating the icy ocean to its south. I’m not done with this one yet, but at this point I think I should break it up into a few posts. Here’s the first batch!
I haven’t drawn her in a while, so I made her the subject of my latest lighting study! Tzipora Shadowbriar is Vince’s betrothed, although neither of them is particularly interested in a relationship with the other. Tzipora is more interested in her own growing sphere of influence in the criminal underworld and the opportunities that can be found (and bought 😉 ) there.
Color temperature adjustments and more rendering to make a finished piece:
~30 mins for new plate and background. I left the naners themselves largely untouched.
Work in progress steps: Bananas (wips and done)
