Artwork Description

Another Photoshop 7/Wacom tablet work. This was actually my first attempt of a more lifelike approach to digital drawing. Some parts I am really happy with and some parts I would just plain redraw from scratch.

Where did the name come from?

Shalissa... that is a Goddess from a Realm in the NWN community. It's called Orb of Abrogation... was the purchasers name KnightMB?... or Michael Brown? by chance?

You can totally feel it. The way she is looking at you. Kinda kinky look and a grin. You know?

Hello Katharina!
I think it was about a week but since I do work full time it was probably spread over a month of working on it during evenings.

Oh, I really like the expression of her face. A little bit evil and insidious. It´s mystery and I love it, just as the details. How many time did you spend for this picture?

I had a pretty detailed background story from the customer. I normally don't get that in depths description for a commission and it was really really interesting to see how well I could flesh out someone elses thought.
I will add the background story for you to comment on as soon as the customer is back from his vacation and able to send it to me again.

This was a commission Smile
So many people asked about her background now and I plan to put the background story as I got it from the customer up as soon as he sends it to me again. (Due to moving I lost some of the conversation and e-mails we had).

i really like the dark shadowy background and the gloomy expression, but im just curious. what inspired the artist to create this gloomy masterpiece.

I like it very much Natascha. I especially like the expression on her face and the overall mood. A very interesting piece that makes me ponder what the story behind it might be? Nice work Natascha.

What a cooincidence - I didn't have had the time to brows through a lot of artist's galleries yet but one of the few was yours Michael. Very beautiful and inspiring landscapes and I was wondering if you 3d render your characters or if they are handdrawn. In any case thanks for the encouragement. It's much appreciated. Smile

Natascha, This is a stunning piece. The mood, and expression are superb. The detail in the dress is excellent. Well done.

Thank you James!
Actually the medium is not new to me (digital with wacom and ps7). The thing I am currently exploring is using different tools in Photoshop. I used to work with the airbrush tool which ended in a very stylized and comic influenced style which I grew sick off. Now I am following the tips and advices of great artists like Socar who adviced me to use the normal hard edge paintbrushes.

For a first attempt at any kind of medium this is amazing! Natascha, love the moody atmosphere of this one!

Art at its best.
