Recent commission for of a forest priestess. Took longer than intended to get it done, mostly because real life has a really terrible habit of intruding. But it is done, and I'm pleased with how it turned out overall. I tried to make the blade seem that it was created from a magical method that made wood almost metallic. Or maybe an iron wood material? Something like that. I think it kinda worked. Also experimented with the eyes. Also think that kinda worked. I'll have to experiment further as I go.
Her outfit is awesome! I love all the lacing! Also, I definitely do get the impression that the weapon is some sort of wood / metal hybird and it's awesome. Great job on this lovely lady!
Thanks! The lineart was really well done by the original artist. Made it relatively easy to apply the appropriate colors. And I'm glad you got that sense, I still feel it could have been done better, but perhaps that's due to my trouble with working with hard, metallic objects for colors. Eventually!
