Artwork Description

This is the cover art for the sequel of a modern vampire-ish comic book for a small publisher named Harmon comics. I agreed to do it because I wanted to try a slightly different style with more stronger colours, and a more of a cartoon look to it. The girls outfit, her sword and the mask are all based on elements that are in the comic. Thanks (again) to my lovely girlfriend, Natascha, who posed for me. The original painting was made in the resolution of 3333 x 5000 pixels. The denim pants was suprisingly fun to paint Smile
Painted during 3-4 evenings using Photoshop with a tablet.

You can see the process of making this painting here: http://www.henningludvigsen.com/images/art/Steps_Maiden_Hell_cover.jpg

Not since Boris have I seen women so tastefully done. We need more artists like you, ones that show you can be sexy without being slutty.

Thanks for your comment, Marley Smile
I have to add that the jeans doesn´t look this good in the high res version, it´s quite rough. Scaling it down makes it look alot better than it actually is, hehe... Wink

Neat colours henning, allround!. I quite like the rather Jackal like mask in the background. I hope you won't take offence to this but i think its natascha's jeans which steal the show here. They are quite convincing!. All the creases and folds through to the texture and colour,,well it's like looking at a pair of jeans really XD ahaha. And painted in a quick amount of time too!. Great work henning

Hehe, really? Thanks alot. A different style than I am used to, and slightly more cheesy even than my other paintings, but that is what I like doing Smile
