Artwork Description

Tired from a long day of courtly duties, the princess takes a moment to catalogue her magic stones before retiring for the night.

I dedicate this one to OchreJelly, because it was the discovery of his gallery that prompted an intense desire to paint something fantasy. Then, when I accidentally fell in love with this photo from a shoot with a particularly cooperative model, the idea was born. Painting things in candlelight is...different, to say the least. The colours were not at all what I expected!

Medium: Photoshop CS2
Completed: Jan. 24, 2008
Time: Approx. 12-15 hr.

the dramatic lighting must have been SOOOOO hard to pull off, so kudos to you for achieving it so gracefully!

I agree with Matt. One more step, and your work will match Zurbaran's. Congratulations.
