Artwork Description

Another exercise in portrait painting. This one was... an interesting lighting challenge for me. Pose referenced from stock photo: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/3064821/ Hand got a little bitty help from Poser. Smile

Thank you, James! This one is right up there with Llothiel in terms of how everything just ended up fitting together and working out well. Yay for mages with glowy spell thingies! Wink

I'm really impressed with the foreshortening and the lighting. Very polished piece--certainly one of your best.

Thank you so much for the return comment! Compliments from an artist like yourself makes me all giddy. Smile Douglas Adams rules!

Thank you so much, James! I wanted to go really bold with the colors in this one... looks like I succeeded! Smile

This is so beautiful. My favorite part is the form of her hand beneath the flame. A lot of artists try that hand position but few pull it off. I love your work!

Beautiful work Marie! This turned out wonderfully, and the lighting really makes it pop. Time well spent Smile

Thanks Sonja! Laughing out loud That's a pretty standard variant head... probably in the 300 series... Wink

Thanks, Mark! Your words really mean a lot. The Lighting was definitely the part of this pic that gave me the most headaches! I think I changed up the lighting on her face and arm a dozen times before I was satisfied!

Thanks, Rebecca! I think I really need to do more dragons... I have so many of them floating round my head... (wait... I'm not sure that came out right...) Wink

Thanks Scott! It was the expression in the stock photo that caught my eye and I said "that's a sorceress!". Wink I had a ton of fun with the background and the costume--and of course those took the least amount of time and I spent hours and hours doing the lighting and the hand!

Very nice work, Marie Rose. The lighting, her clothing and the wonderful dragon are done beautifully!

Very nice Marie. I like her clothing, it's very interesting, and you've really rendered the fire and background effects quite nicely. I also like the expression on her face, she has an air of confidence about her. Good work.

Art at its best.
