Phoenicia WIP

Progress is slow because of my studies but it grows 🙂

I built the base because I was really stuck and din’t know where it was going. I imagined her as a farseer with crystal balls of different sizes lying around in an urban/industrial/steampunk scene. This is how it looks right now. There will be some grass on it later, as well. There are only base colours on the base so far.

I love to paint her skin. Because of a lucky accident with the airbrush I sprayes purple onto her skin and I loved it. So I’m going for an enhanced contrast in the shadows with glazes of purple.

Comments and hints/help/criticism always welcome!

I tried it on Phoenicia, had trouble with the skintone because i overdid it and lost my base colour, too bad have to do it again but the skirt turned out really good. The bottom part is finished, I addes brushwork and it looks really good now, no dead airbrush-only work but with life. And it was done so fast oO!
Now I really have to study but I will show you this skirt!

Happy painting time and Newsflash

I am really excited I just ordered my airbrush+compressor! I always wanted one since I was painting a lot when I was 13-14y old… I am really looking forward to learning how it works and how to use it ^^

I am also getting some views on my blog and some likes on my facebook thank you for that! PLUS my first comission work. More about that soon it’s gonna be a mighty dragon for a good friend.

At the moment I am working on the horse again, bringing structure to it and it looks quite good so far.

Black and white horse with structured blendings

Yeah it actually looks better than I thought. I wanted to do this as an experiment because I was unsure how to paint a really cool horse… So I thought why not add some structure to the skin/fur? I tried it on the black parts and was not satisfied but before I gave up I did it on the white as well. Not it suddenly all comes together. The structure contrast between the even skin and the horse is pretty cool. What do you think? Does it look cool?
