Thank you!

Okay pretty much done aside from inevitable random small changes...

Title Ideas: Fuck Yeah, True Story, Historically Accurate, Dinosaurs Are Cool... I'm tired, this is due at 8am.

Thanks.

It's been about a month since I last posted. I've been extremely lazy and haven't done much art. I have started messing around with some free 3d modeling program. I have no idea what I'm doing.

Here's a small update on Leela, I'm going to try to finish this one soon and move on to something else.

Alright, I think it's nearing completion. Any suggestions? Should I do more with the background?

A little wip. Heard some amazing music and finally did some more on my Aela painting. Off to a good start. I'm mostly focused on colors and stuff right now. I'll make her look a little more like Aela later on.

So I stayed up ridiculously late modifying the face (messed up then started over...) instead of going to sleep so I can function properly and be ready for my monday exam.

I've been watching some videos uploaded by an experienced concept artist and got started messing around with the background.

Another update! Should I put a big dragon in the top left? I've sort of been taking my time and not doing that part yet... Time to sleep.

Also you guys should check out this channel here: http://www.youtube.com/user/FZDSCHOOL?feature=watch

The guy is a fantastic concept artist and is really inspiring. His videos are really interesting, helpful, and informative.

Yes. there can never be too much dragon! ;P

My cousin has returned from a two week mountain climbing and brought a lot of pictures. What I noticed about the mist in the mountains is that it usually only covers a small area of the mountain. Like a mist around it where the top is clear. Like this.

But that depends on the weather.

Yes, that guy seem very talented, thanks for sharing!

I was also wondering, what brushes and tools do you use to render the face?

For the face I started a medium hard brush to lay down the basic colors, then came in with a small hard brush to get more detail and accuracy, then I followed up with a soft medium brush that had a grainy texture on it to get some subtle shadow and color.

I'm gonna move over to photoshop and a wacom tablet after this picture so I may change some stuff up since I'll be using better tools.

I drew Picasso in charcoal for an art journal and then polished it a little in photoshop.

Another update. That's it for tonight. Still want to mess with the face some more to make it look more like Aela, and also add a bunch of stuff like arrows and a dagger in her hand or something.

Another update. Changed the face, probably made some small changes to the background and added the breast plates.
