i would swear id seen this elsewhere just the face part perhaps wb3... nah looked and its very similar but not the same in 2 pics from that game.


Axlys responds:

Sorry but I don't know Wb3 game, I have never heard before. I think is possible that two characters appear similar like when two persons appear simillar ^^

This looks like a book cover for a supernatural mystery-thriller or something. It also reminded me a bit of Hel (the Norse goddess that was commanded to be the one in charge of dealing with the dead not lucky enough to have a place in Valhalla), if she ever had the chance to wander out beyond her realm. She too is described as being half-skeletal/rotted. Nice work!

My only complaint: if you're going to give a creature a skeletal arm, try putting a bit more of the skeleton showing through other parts of her ghostly body so that one part doesn't look so out-of-place. It wouldn't have to be a lot, just enough to balance it out. :-)

Axlys responds:

Thank you so much! :) I agree with you. The first sketch showed a part of her ribcage and muscles but in following sketches disappeared. The main reason was the target, this illustration was for different public. The range was since 10 year old until adult people and I had to keep out mature content.

It looks like illustration from book titled like "Ye olde tome of devilish beasties", heh. I love this style of drawing.
By the way.... is that vampire fangs?..

Axlys responds:

Thank you ^^ Yes, she has sharp fangs like vampires but it's not a vampire. I like them and I used them for getting a dramatic and more agressive expresion. Also, I usually draw them in other fantasy illustrations, like demons or witches.
