Tzipora Shadowbriar (2015) (wips and done)

tzipora_shadowbriar_2015_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 ūüėČ ) there.

This one started with a sketch:

A bit of palette testing:

Rendering:

A background appears!

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

Cottage in the woods (wips + done)

I’m still catching up on posting all the art I made¬†over the holiday break.

This painting¬†features a little forest cottage that Good Guy Vince¬†fixed up for his friend-from-another-world, Airika, so she’d have a place to sleep that wasn’t the dirty old woods. ūüôā

I started it as a quick lighting study/experiment, but I liked it enough to carry it to completion.

I just realized the chimney from the sketch got lost in the final painting. I guess that stack of wood out front is for decoration, lol.
