This is really great,like how the painting techniqe reminds of old propoganda-posters during the WW2 in russia. maybe the morive of those where not exactly like in this one, but somehow it all reminds me of those. This painting rocks, Patrick! =)

I've been enjoying doing some different stuff, Chris. I have several others in this vein that are even less Fantasy-related, so I haven't put them up. Oh well. Smile

Thanks, Ken - she told me she likes you too, but in a malevolent, evil way.

I've heard about that.. Actually, even on this job they were very careful to ask the artists to "imply" a Nazi look but to use no actual symbols or "real" uniforms.

I would have a lot of trouble, if I would try to apply something like that here in Germany on a German art-page... ;o)

Hey Patrick! Cool pic, love the colour scheme.

Your shading technique is cool, and I like your latest batch of mono-chromatic color schemes.
^___^

oooooo, she's evil. I like her!

Always nice to hear from you James - thanks. The technique is still a work in progress, but it's good to know I'm going in the right direction.

megaflow's picture

Glad you liked it, Tom! I thought I had enough strong verticals at the bottom (with the columns), so fading her out seemed like a good way to soften that.

Very, very nice indeed, Patrick! the red tones work very well! your gestapo gal appears a nasty self-assured piece of work! your shadow and light technique is fantastic!

megaflow's picture

Thanks, Holger - now on your knees before your evil mistress!

megaflow's picture

Thank you, Marley - I'm liking the "less detail" look lately! On the colors, did you notice that the dark area around the red is actually very dark green? That might add to the effect you mention!

megaflow's picture

Thanks a lot, Jen! I thought the color really helped define the character.

portalrun's picture

Nice one Patrick, love the colors and how you used them, the lower half of the character fading into the backround seems to really bring out the bolder upper half (character herself) Great view ...

mangalore's picture

Again, one more reason to join the dark side. Wink Great work, Patrick!

Thats pretty awesome stuff patrick. I really like your technique for colouring and shading your characters. Not to mention the harsh red tones, which ironically have quite a soothing effect overall!. Great work.

This is great Patrick. The color is just perfect! Great work! Smile

Art at its best.
