Tzipora Shadowbriar (2015) (wips and done)


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.

This one started with a sketch:

A bit of palette testing:


A background appears!


Color temperature adjustments and more rendering to make a finished piece:

Dice, spool, ornament still life – evening interior lamps (#2)

And here’s the same scene again, this time with “evening light” – ie: a desk lamp to the left and a floor lamp across the room. Here’s the earlier version painted in daylight.

I painted over the previous version (don’t worry, it was a copy 🙂 ) to save some time and to help what might eventually be a whole bunch of these look consistent on composition. Dinoraur’s crotch makes me lol.
