WIP – The Reader

spent about an hour actually starting to paint this tonight in photoshop. need to get some references for anatomy and perspective and lighting before i go much further i think. so far it’s all come out of my head which i’ve learned is not highly accurate.


Decided I’d give the Imagine FX Bi-Weekly Rebel Challenge a shot. Theme this time is “Neighbors”. D and I sat and giggled over all kinds of good ideas but none that I’d be able to get done by the 6th. Had just about given up and then just started sketching and this one started to appear.

I’m trying a new style here, more of a hard edged thing on the shadows and keeping the sketch lines intact, just coloring them a bit, and also a bit less saturated than the colors I usually use.

I think this one is my final…*maybe* (click for larger view, WIPs below)

WIP – Arya

I worked a tiny bit on Arya last night. Was too lazy to get out the tablet so just washed in some stuff with the mouse and worked a bit on eyes/brows. I wanted her to have more of an Arya expressionon her face. Washed in messy hair and a basic shift, the braids were too kempt for Arya and her neck was too long.

WIP: Diana

Spent about an hour working on Diana tonight, made a tiny bit of progress, got started a bit with the color layering. Working on the desktop with the 22inch widescreen and the tablet was much nicer than the laptop, but I think I need to install my Photoshop brush libraries and Painter X to give me a few more options.

edit note: I’ve added the final image into this post as well. 12/29/08
