Decided to work on some more female portraits because I need a lot of work on em so I decided to try and recreate the one I did from 2 years ago, but with some of the stuff I've learned since then.
Went for that dark and mystical feel. Her people apply a glowing paint to their already very dark skin to give themselves a more demonic, supernatural and ominous appearance
The finished piece. I think I got what I wanted out of this and and I'm actually quite satisfied with it considering this is my most ambitious piece I've done after a very long hiatus from drawing and Photoshop.
I wanted to thank everyone for the support throughout this piece and all the positive feedback and I'll be sure to do more work heart emoticon
Here's better resolution and all the steps I've posted thus far. It's the first piece I've posted on ArtStation simply because all the art there is so amazing. However I took the step I had to get out of my comfort zone.
