"Priestess" - Digital Painting

I've got a bit of catching up to do in regards to updating you on the paintings I've added to my portfolio recently. Currently I have one to share with some progress shots along the way.

PROGRESS SHOTS. The idea was developed really quickly and came together in a matter of hours. I made a quick sketch of a girl and liked her expression and outfit. After my value thumbnail was finished I began experimenting with layering images of colored texture over my painting to produce the color scheme I wanted. It was a fun way to experiment. That, and paying with settings in Photoshop, allowed me to create this varying blue background that I so love. Much of my time went into painting her face. I liked her so much I even included her on my first banner for events and shows. You can find her here in the print shop.
